UK horror flick sees a evil clown take on snotty teenagers. Hee!
‘The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror 23’ Quotes:
“It was all so black and white, and something was rubbing at the door.”
“Far worse, in fact to sit on opposite sides of the breakfast table and wonder who the other person was, and why they were there, and when they would go.”
“As if he could think of nothing more jolly than to go trekking off into a pathless haunted desert with his hero Smithers.”
Sara Douglass who wrote ‘Darkglass Mountain’ and ‘The Troy Game’ books has died.
I am reading ‘Star Trek Typhon Pact: Brinkmanship’.
‘The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror 23’ was terrible. There were only four good stories in it: ‘Sad, Dark Thing’, ‘Smithers and the Ghosts of the Thar’, ‘The Ocean Grand, North West Coast’ and ‘White Roses, Bloody Silk’. The editor did his usual curmudgeon summation of the year. I notice he described the sadly short lived ‘The Cape’ as enjoyable. But the dude needs to let go of the rivalry with Ellen Datlow.
There will be no review of ‘Breaking Bad’ 3x08 ‘I See You’. I cannot stand any of the characters and will probably ditch the show.
Saw some of the Australian tv movie ‘A Model Daughter: The Killing of Caroline Byrne’ (2009) which starred David Lyons of ‘The Cape’ as Donald Wood. His girlfriend Caroline jumped off a cliff known as The Gap in 1995. Her family were convinced Donald threw her off and spent years trying to prove it. This TV movie portrayed Donald as an abusive liar who while claiming to be some rich man’s chauffer/personal assistant was actually his lover. The TV movie ends in 2008 with Donald finally locked up for murder however it does not mention that this year Donald had his conviction overturned. So did he kill his girlfriend? Are the allegations about him in this movie true? I have no idea. David Lyons is a good actor but hearing his real accent after watching 'The Cape' is weird.
