Although the connection between heavy metal and horror is well documented, the connection between horror and punk rock isn’t discussed as much. Continue reading “EPISODE 079- RANGER DANGER: AN INTERVIEW WITH JENN WEXLER”

“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from MAGIC”. -Arthur C. Clarke
“The only way of discovering the limits of the POSSIBLE is to venture a little way past them into the IMPOSSIBLE”. -Arthur C. Clarke
When we watch a movie, or we listen to someone tell a story, we actively allow ourselves to believe in that level of magic.
We want to believe there is still magic in the world.
And, guess what?
There still is.

Phantasm: Ravager (2016), the fifth film in the nearly-40-year arc of the Phantasm series, ends with a bittersweet reunion.
Brothers Mike and Jody and their best friend Reggie, the protagonists from the original 1979 film, sit inside the trademark black Plymouth Barracuda.
They had been separated over the course of their endless battle against the otherworldly Tall Man and his minions. Now, as they sit in the muscle car, they exchange wordless looks. Age has altered their features, and there’s a weariness in their expressions.

About the Author:
Isaac Thorne is a nice man who has, over the course of his life,
developed a modest ability to spin a good yarn. Really. He promises.

Just because things might seem normal and ordinary…doesn’t mean they really ARE.
Some places, no matter what your eyes tell you, just feel…weird…creepy…uncanny.
