jim_phoenix
No.

06:54.19
box
Does that sound familiar. Ok then you might not have seen it but it is interesting because um, Zach Krieger who wrote and directed it. Um, it was kind of interesting because he had um. It’s it’s all about reading warnings and kind of like um trauma that comes into it and the ripple effects of abuse and so there’s some kind of.

07:32.29
jim_phoenix
Right.

07:32.40
box
Weird parts in it. It actually kind of reminded me of like x-files. There is this one x-files that I don’t want to say too much because then it’s kind of spoilery.

07:41.26
jim_phoenix
You’re gonna spoil Xfiles is the one where there’s an alien in it and a guy smoking a cigarette.

07:44.72
box
No, it’s where there’s an inbred family. Yeah, and so it’s kind of like that. But he said it was inspired by the nonfiction book the gift of fear and he said it’s like in a yeah.

07:48.51
jim_phoenix
Oh well, that kind there was no.

08:02.97
box
According to Wikipedia so but he cited a section that encouraged women to trust their intuition and not like ignore red flags and basically he started um writing a 30 page scene in which would incorporate as many as the red flags as possible.

08:19.73
jim_phoenix
A 30 page scene. Jesus.

08:21.56
box
And that’s how and that’s how it started coming to be so it’s It’s very interesting. It’s really interesting. Um, and it was not what I was thinking it was going to be I thought it was going to be I thought it was.

08:28.72
jim_phoenix
Um, that’s a long essay.

08:37.63
jim_phoenix
What do you think it was.

08:41.47
box
Going to be like a a haunted type horror movie. Um, not an actual like physical thing type horror movie. Um I wanted to actually spend I did like Justin long but I wanted to spend more time. With um, Campbell’s character because I thought she was really fascinating. Um, but it is kind of nice. Um Detroit is not the bad guy surprisingly um ah although you think it is going to be at some points because there’s a guy that’s like chasing after or saying lady come here, come here and you find out later he was trying to warn her.

09:04.70
jim_phoenix
Oh.

09:11.33
jim_phoenix
Um, right.

09:16.37
jim_phoenix
Come here come in.

09:17.54
box
So um, the trade isn’t the bad guy. It’s um, horrible people. Horrible people are bad guys.

09:26.61
jim_phoenix
Um, in Detroit there’s horrible people in Detroit so you you you have horrible people and you have someone renting.

09:32.15
box
There is but there’s also good people too like 1 of the people that was trying to save her.

09:43.81
jim_phoenix
Same place and you have confusion and crawl spaces and x-files and embreds and all this happens in Detroit that’s a big fucking and and there’s a 30 page scene.

09:52.59
box
In this movie. Yes.

10:00.97
box
Well, that’s that’s what he had started with that is what he had started with is just basically trying is well basically he was trying to incorporate how many especially for women or a fabs I should say um.

10:04.37
jim_phoenix
So we started for piece of shit and they went somewhere else. What.

10:18.43
box
The red flags that they get when they’re with other people so it’s like well like one of them is arriving to a strange place alone. Um, you know having a guy there like is that safe you know for you to stay with him.

Advertisement

10:21.18
jim_phoenix
What are they.

10:36.42
box
Um, because he’s a stranger and you don’t know him. There’s a part when he’s like oh I I have some wine I haven’t opened it. But do you want some wine and she’s like no thanks, you know, but later on that and she did have tea. She did have tea. She did have a.

10:45.36
jim_phoenix
I Got some tea when I come over for some tea see and then she like fuck I’m pieceing it out and the guys like what the fuck.

10:53.98
box
Um, and then yeah listen to our listen listen to our last episode. Um, but but eventually she does have the one because then she finds Out. You know a little more about them. But basically it’s all these like little red flag signs that. A febs have to go through every day to see if it’s safe or if it’s not safe. You know, um and a lot of gut intuition. Sure Yes, it is yes.

11:15.38
jim_phoenix
Is it? Okay I got 2 questions one is roller gaator or one the red flags because if not should be because like I guess wine and roller gator on Tv come on by oh fuck man.

This happens to to little children like me, you know to a fabs like me and you know we were always taught like you know at the park you know if a guy approaches you you know you’ll run away and I remember during when I was over in that area too. There was. A guy that would approach kids afaps you know and and start talking to them and we were told like you can’t do that you know like same with um there was a seven eleven where a guy was flashing um afas too and they said you know you want to stay away from that seven eleven so it’s like.

Okay.

Goosebumps, The Haunted Mask

Published

on

Episode two of Goosebumps was honestly more fun than the first. It was dark, funny, infuriating and wonderful. Best of all, it has a killer twist ending.

Let’s discuss.

The story

Based loosely on the 1993 story of the same name, The Haunted Mask begins sort of partway through the first episode.

Advertisement
Cover of R.L. Stine's The Haunted Mask.

We’re introduced to a character we haven’t seen much of so far, named Isabella.

Isabella’s life doesn’t seem great. She’s all but invisible at school. She is responsible for taking care of her little brother. It seems like her only real joy is bullying people online. She was the person who tried to get Allison’s party canceled by sending the invite to her parents. Why? Because she is a very unhappy person.

Despite trying to get the party canceled, she decides to go anyway. At the Biddle house, a voice calls her down to the basement. There, she finds a mask.

The mask inspires her to do wild things. She wanders around the party, flirting with everyone. And she has a great time.

Several days later, after Isaiah breaks his arm, Isabella brings an expensive drone to school to get shots of the football team’s practice. Unfortunately, Lucas breaks it fooling around. And Isabella, tired of being ignored, says some awful things to him.

When her mother grounds her because she took the drone without asking, the mask compels her to do some awful things.

What worked

I would first like to talk about the storytelling structure in this season. It appears that we’re going to be getting the events of Halloween night multiple times, from multiple points of view.

Ana Yi Puig in Goosebumps.

I love this structure. It’s unique, and it allows for more mystery in a shorter period. It’s also more complex, showing just how much madness was happening, while just showing one part of the story at a time.

Another thing I appreciated was the evolution of the character Lucas.

On one hand, it’s easy to be angry at Lucas. Even if he thought the drone belonged to the school, it’s still kind of a selfish move to break it.

But Lucas just lost his father. We don’t know how yet, but we know from Nora that his death caused Lucas to start doing things like jumping on drones and skateboarding off the roof from his bedroom window.

Advertisement

We all mourn differently. Losing a parent as a teen is awful. So while we can all agree that he’s being a problem, he’s also being a sad kid working through something hard.

And the same can be said for Isabella.

Look, we still don’t know what the adults of this town did to make Harold Biddle haunt them. But we do know that these parents are messing up in all sorts of other ways. And Isabella is suffering from parentification. She’s being forced to play mom at home while being ignored by her classmates at school. Even without the mask, I could see her lashing out and trashing the house.

Finally, I love Justin Long in this series. His visual comedy was fantastic here, as he falls through the hallways. But he also manages to be scary as hell. His creepy smile and jerky movements are enough to make anyone’s skin crawl. I honestly can’t think of a living actor who could have played this better.

What didn’t work

Advertisement

If I have one complaint about this episode, it’s the music. It’s not terrible, but it’s not great. Every song seems like it’s just screaming what the characters are thinking. Which isn’t really what I’d consider the point of a soundtrack.

Maybe it’s just a curse on RL Stine. None of his projects can ever have good soundtracks aside from the theme song.

Unlike the original Goosebumps series, there were moments in this episode that did startle me and unnerve me. Which is wonderful. And while it’s still clearly for kids, it’s something anyone can sit down and enjoy. I’m very excited for the rest of the season. But what do you think? Let us know in the comments.

Nightmarish Nature: Zombie Snails

Published

on

This time on Nightmarish Nature, we will look into zombie snails, because we were having so much with the Whore Snails recently. So this is a lot like the Freaky Fungus except that this time it’s a parasitic worm that is the cause of the horror… Leucochloridium paradoxum, the green-banded broodsac worm, forces snails to be a part of its nefarious plans to take over the world (well, really more just continue on keeping on in its strange and bizarre life cycle).

Hungry birds want nummins
Hungry birds want nummins

This Is What We Get for Eating Poop

The worm, which spends much of its life as a parasite in birds’ digestive systems, is part of a weird cycle that includes both birds and snails, though the snail end is much creepier. It starts when a snail ingests worm eggs in bird droppings. These eggs hatch into worm larvae that eventually turn the poor hosts into zombie snails! But I’m getting ahead of myself.

Snails make questionable food choices, but I guess this comes from being where they are on the ecosystem clean up crew...
Snails make questionable food choices, but I guess this comes from being where they are on the ecosystem clean up crew…

The worm larvae work their way up into the snails’ brains and take over, hijacking them on suicide missions to continue their own life cycle. These worm larvae eventually grow large and worm their way into the poor snail’s eye stalks, pulsing and throbbing therein to resemble maggots or other tasty treats.

Mind-Control

The worms use the zombie snails to get into their bird hosts by mind-controlling them into climbing out of the shady undergrowth where they will be easily spotted by bird predators which will feed on them, ingesting the eye stalks and continuing the worm’s life cycle as it gets into the bird’s digestive tract. The huge, bulging eye stalks are irresistible to birds looking to snatch maggots and other delicious delicacies. Eventually, after the worms are well ensconced in its bird hosts, the bird poops out more worm eggs for unsuspecting snails to ingest, completing the cycle.

Birds love their grubs and maggots and other nummins, even if they are just zombie snails.

You can watch this in action on Nat Geo Wild: World’s Deadliest here, if you dare. Warning, it’s a little gross but not near so much as some of the other topics we’ve covered. If you enjoyed this slimy segment of Nightmarish Nature, please check out past segments:

Book Reviews

Grayshade Review: Assassins and Intrigue

Published

on

“It’s amazing how long it can take someone to die. Or to be exact: how long it can take someone to die if you’re careless. Most people like to talk about the human body like it’s a piece of glass…breathe on it the wrong way and it’ll shatter. Not that I mind; talk like that makes my work a lot easier.” – pg 1, Grayshade by Gregory a. wilson

Grayshade is the first book in the Gray Assassin Trilogy by Gregory A. Wilson. Published in 2022 by Atthis Arts, Grayshade was a 2023 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award for Science Fiction and Fantasy Finalist. Wilson also has an award-winning graphic novel (Icarus) and actual-play show (Speculate!). Speculate! features a semi-rotating cast of speculative fiction writers (including my fave Premee Mohamed) playing a variety of tabletop role-playing games. I actually got to meet Wilson when I went to GenCon in 2023, and he was energetic and kind. I bought Grayshade because of his positive energy and zest for storytelling. 

In Grayshade, the titular character is an assassin whose faith is shaken by an assassination-gone-weird. In this high fantasy world, the assassin’s guild is also a religious organization, which means doubt in his devotion puts a target on Grayshade’s back. When he is asked to undertake a mission to prove his faith, he must decide not only if he will kill for his morals, but if he will die for them as well. 

You’d be hard pressed to find a book that better emulates the feeling of playing an Assassin’s Creed video game. There are (of course) assassinations, cool gadgets, mentor figures, ethical dilemmas, political subterfuge, and a dose of will-they-won’t-they. The last half of the book in particular was very gripping and satisfying in its steady flow between scenes. The world building was interesting without being over the top. I felt like I had the information I needed to understand what was happening, and not a lot more. I appreciated this, because it helped keep the plot momentum. This included a Chekhov’s Ralaar, which I promise is a funny joke if you’ve read the book. Also, the inclusion of a nonbinary character was well executed. Yay for representation!

However, I would be remiss not to mention that the first 100 pages of Grayshade were a slog. The dialogue and inner monologue felt especially campy, which was really distracting from the rest of the story because it didn’t feel intentional for it to come across that way. I am pro-camp (Jason X is probably my favorite movie in the franchise), however it can feel awkward when it seems unintentional. This makes it hard to connect with Grayshade and only gets better with the introduction of more permanent side characters. 

Advertisement

That being said, I liked Grayshade. I look forward to reading the other two books in the trilogy. Since this isn’t my genre of choice, I had my husband (an avid high fantasy fan) read Grayshade too, so as to make sure I wasn’t projecting any genre bias. He agreed with my thoughts, liking the book overall but struggling with the first part. I would recommend Grayshade if you like the vibe of the Assassin’s Creed games, high fantasy, and are looking to support indie authors. 

 Also of note, Alligator Alley Entertainment is working on a Dungeons and Dragons 5E supplement for the world of Grayshade. So definitely keep on a look out for that!
