The Keys (2017)

Amanda B. Goodman is such a master of suspense build and plot twists, her new short, The Keys, delivers such an amazing talent of horror-thriller style.

Amanda’s writing style makes you immediately care about the characters you meet.  They are sympathetic and you can relate to their points of view in the short matter of time you watch them.

The story is about Sam(Seth Panman(co-writer, co-producer, co-star and co-director), a newbie real estate agent, hounded by his boss, Ian(John DiSilvestri, voice only) on the phone about closing the deal with a client, Ally(Amanda B. Goodman, writer, co-producer,co-star and co-director).  Ally is a perky quirky energetic client, who i could sense that there was something off about her, because of her weird and dark sense of humor, which she would play off in a joking manner.  Sam would just brush it off and continue with his sales tour of apartments because of his wanting to not be fired.  Knowing of Amanda’s style, you know it doesn’t end there and it will take you into dark places..

This is a mesmerizing film that kept me glued to my chair til the end!  I give this 5 out of 5 bloody hearts, for the story, character development and the TWIST that she throws in your face when you least expect it!  I highly recommend this horror-thriller gem as a MUST SEE!!

The Worms by Nathanael Munn

Meet David McConnel, he’s a simple man laboring away in the sweltering noon heat as a lonely construction worker. Today David will travel that desolate highway as he comes face-to-face with his deepest fear, the worm, in the Cimmerian.”

A clew of worms on a fiendish cavalcade of the damned languidly arched, bent and undulated their spindly segmented bodies’ in elongated lethargic movements. The blasphemous grubs started a slime trail at David’s ankles that bled from taught bondages securing his limbs in place. They crept and writhed forward up his legs, past his knees and thighs, across his abdomen and chest, then freed themselves from the open neckline of his soiled tee-shirt.


Every strand of hair on David’s legs and arms bristled. His stomach churned and his palms clammed. His body wrenched in a state of confusion that vacillated between ticklish laughter and itching madness tempered with putrid disgust. When the raw odor of David’s flesh wafted and reached their starved psyches the worms became frenzied, galvanized and ready to fill their starved gullets.

David’s muscles contracted and expanded while his skin broke out in goose pimples. The worms’ movements were cold, slick and unnerving. He wanted to lift his head, but it too was bound, all he could do is glare down the end of his nose hoping for a simple glimpse of the approaching menaces.

Ahh,” David screamed realizing his worst nightmare was unfolding before his eyes. His life-long phobia of worms wreaked havoc on his mental stability. If he hadn’t been bound he would fainted and collapsed.


Frantic David struggled feverishly with his bonds but lamented as each pull, tug or quick jerk only tightened the ropes that bound him to the metal table. His blood continued to trickle from his ankles and now from his wrists which added to the growing pools of blood on the floor. It’s useless, he thought.

David shouted in near hysterics, “Why is this happening? Please God, make it stop.” Tears welled in his eyes as the bitter realization that he lay powerless to defend himself against the onslaught of invading marauders. 


Suddenly, an overwhelming urge to scratch and claw consumed David’s mind. His heart raced and thudded against his ribs. He broke out in
cold sweats and shivered as fluorescent stars filled his blurred vision. His ears rang with deep piercing tones that jackhammered distorted visions in his brain of the Angel of Death lurking in the shadows like a buzzard waiting for imminent death.

The streaming clew continued to gnaw and bite while they waggled and squirmed their devious pathways into David’s nose, ears and mouth. Even with David’s clinched teeth, they slithered their ropy bodies through his clamped mouth. Soon the invading army penetrated each orifice hungering and salivating for David’s human delights. David moaned as felt every twitch of the slimy pests vacillating movements.

Up around and twisting trough his sinus canals the slimy corruptions migrated en route to their eventual goal, the brain. His cheeks bulged. His cheeks stretched and his skin and facial tissue tore dribbling blood down his neck that puddled on the sides of his head.

David coughed and sputtered and expelled several of the vermin from his mouth but they kept coming overwhelming his gag reflexes. Again David choked and gargled as a steady stream of worms slid in his throat and swelled his esophagus.

As the worms entered his mouth, David whimpered when the wiggling the bodies traipsed around his tongue leaving a rotting flavor of dirt and the texture of slimy squishiness. Soon he winced and his body tensed as his miniature foes danced in his stomach.

David Puked and hundreds of the soil dwellers flung free of his mouth. They exploded upwards in a puree of half-digested food and bile. Once gravity took hold the hodgepodge of sickness splatted on his face and chest. David spat and coughed but as the creatures regrouped and advanced.

He screamed with unholy torture, “Oh God, make the suffering stop.” David’s head hummed and echoed with each chomp and grind of his tantalizing meat. The reverberating noise in his skull drove him closer the precipice of madness. The chewing and burrowing blights move ever further into his throbbing cranium and take delight on nibbling on his brain tissue.

Thump, thud, squiggle and pound the continuing tumult of the eating parasites reached a piercing pitch that rippled shockwaves of fear, uncertainty, and death in David thoughts. Terror and pain traversed in pulsing waves then paralyzed David’s contorted face. If he wasn’t shackled to the metal table David would have dug in his nails deep into his flesh and tore it off long ago if it meant removing the unwanted intruders from devouring him, from the inside and out.

David grimaced, he wept and tried to scream for aid but the words fell captive in the back of his throat making releasing garbled speech. His head throbbed, his limbs twitched and soon after the incomprehensible utterances subsided and changed to primal grunts.

He lay preparing his mind for certain death when The Doors, “This is The End,” blared in his thoughts. David stood front and center of a concert enjoying the music, crowds and smoky atmosphere. Soon music faded away in still darkness and his numbing body floated listlessly amongst the stars.

Saliva and stomach acid commingled with the backflow of blood left in the wakes of the tunneling worms then ejected from his mouth, nose, and ears in a volcanic eruption of crimson froth. David’s glistening slippery gore avalanched into piles of human residue on the floor.

Before David’s brain turned to a cream-hued gelatinous mush on the floor, one last thought crossed his mind and hung in the either until it dissipated forever, I wonder if God will forgive all my sins?



YODO IS HERE!! or as they say, “YODO, BITCHES!”

 

The wait is finally over!  As of May 30, 2017, YOU ONLY DIE ONCE the Series, premiered on YouTube!  All of Season 1 has been released from the vaults by the very creative Amanda B. Goodman and her amazingly talented cast and crew!

Season 1 is six fang-tastic episodes, each under 20 mins.  The way they are edited can leave you in desperation for the next episode to see what happens next.  The Vampire Hunter world that Amanda B. Goodman has imagined is mostly about loyalty to each other and that things are not always what they seem.  In fact, I had my “titties twisted” by the mind-boggling events that drew me in deep into the YODO world.

Cecilia, the impetuous hunter, always going for the kill before anyone else can act and doesn’t always succeed.  Linda, the mean bitch, can stop everyone in their tracks by one of her mean quips and sour face, she also doesn’t like people very much and if she doesn’t know you, she doesn’t want you to hang on her, “OK, Lou!”.  Jamie, is the comic relief, awkward socializer and heart of the group but deadly with her crossbow, “Kristy”.  This trio of female vampire hunters have been lifelong friends since early grade school and have also been training in vampire hunting since they were children too.    They have more hunter friends that help them out; Ann, Rufus’ girlfriend and a very snarky hunter who can be very kind and caring to her hunter family and can match Linda in the sarcasm department.  Rufus, Ann’s boyfriend turned vampire(from the short film) and Linda’s step brother, who can go “undercover” to vampire events but also helps protect his hunter friends, even though he forgets that garlic chips he can no longer have because it burns him.

Season 1 has more of a tragic backstory for Cecilia who’s favorite uncle was killed years ago, by a vicious female vampire, as she was told.  Vera, sired Rufus in the short film, and she becomes the target of their hunt.

YODO is addictive and mesmerizing and kept me glued to my seat for almost 2 hours.  I love it!  I’m hooked and I want more!!  Now I’m waiting for Season 2!!  I give YODO 10 out of 10 fangs and can’t wait to see what else Amanda B. Goodman and her crew can do!

New camera for EMZT YouTube!

BoomDoom and i bought a new Kodak Pix Pro camera to start helping do videos for the EMZT RADIO YouTube Horror Channel..

i’ve playing around with it, trying to figure out how to use it and all its functions and for the first video, learned how to do basic editing and putting in some music, did a basic intro and credits page and then mixed it all together..

our first video shoot was several smaller videos that i figured out how to put together to make an almost 7min video..

i’m pretty proud of my first time in the video editing, it’s not the greatest but it’s not bad either..  BoomDoom is nervous in front of the camera, but if i help direct him and ask him questions like we do for his podcast, then he seems to get comfortable after a while..  when he talks about a topic he’s interested in, he can make it sound so cool..

i’m using windows live movie maker, which is pretty easy to figure out, but i’m already wanting more stuff on there to make the editing more horror related..

please do check out our video and give a like, comment and share about our video..

Thank You!  there will be more to come!

 



The Original Terror of the Waters; JAWS 1975 – 1987

Last week I had the urge to watch the JAWS movie series, since it was available on NetFlix..

The whole series is about this rogue killer shark, each a different shark because the shark in each movie was destroyed, I mean not just stabbed or anything, but blown to bits, except part 2, that one was electrocuted to the point it was on fire..

The movies also centered on the Brody family, which is not so strange since they seem to be the ones to kill the shark in every movie.  But how do those sharks know who those people are and why would it seek such revenge on that family..??

Police Chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) was in the first 2 movies and came up with some great lines before the shark was destroyed..  like; “Smile, you son of a bitch!” and “Open Wide!  SAY AHHHHH!”

Movies 3 & 4 were about their sons, 3 was “located” in Florida at Sea World of all places and 4 was in the Caribbean.

JAWS 3 was 3-D (1983).  The early 80s is when 3-D vision was being used in horror film, to add more of a scare effect in the movie theaters, you see something practically jumping out from the screen and at your face, the scare factor is high.  Friday the 13th Part 3 was 3-D the year before.

The series ends with Jaws:The Revenge (Part 4).  The Shark kills the youngest Brody son, Sean, who was a police deputy for Amity Island.  It jumped up at his police boat, ripping off his arm and then a second chomp, pulls him under the water.  Ellen Brody, the mom and former Chief Brody’s widow, said that Chief Brody died of a heart attack, Ellen says it was the fear of the shark and water that killed him.

Mike Brody, oldest son is living in the Caribbean and brings his mom to stay with them to help her over the grief of losing her son.  There’s an ominous feeling she has, thinking, dreaming and knowing that the Shark is following her.  Of course, she’s right, the Shark does come after the remaining family, even the little 5 year old granddaughter.  But the Brodys team up and destroy that Shark again, proving that love of family and having the will to not give in to the fear of impending super natural doom, will win the day..

I noticed that these movies had to have a happy ending.  The Shark had to be destroyed because Man has to be the dominant species on the planet, if super nature wins out, then people will be too afraid to live their lives.

These movies were during a time that practical effects were used.  No CGIs or computer video effects trickery.  They used some actual shark film footage and of course, had the largest animatronic shark built to scare the hell out of us.

When the first Jaws movie came out in my hometown in 1975, nobody went into the water or were even at the beaches during the whole month of June.  It scared everyone that badly.   And that makes me smile thinking about that  a movie about a killer shark, would keep people from going swimming.

My hometown also was the place where they filmed Piranha 3D in 2010 about those killer prehistoric piranhas that ate Jerry O’ Connell’s penis and some springbreakers too.



Storms seem to be hitting the South..

At the moment, storms are hitting on the South, making internet connection difficult.

MJ had to cancel our podcast recording today to do storm preparations for his area..

Tropical Storm Hermine is hitting Florida where my online school is located.  They closed up early today to ride it out and are hoping for normal resume of business on Friday.

And so i’m working on my schoolwork for this week, and it’s now a waiting game to see how much time the storms will take from us.

i’m considering putting together a little podcast for the podbean page for you..  if i have some free time..
