Hotel (2001)

Wikipedia states this is a “British-Italian comedy” and a “horror-thriller” which I find as an amusing attempt at stating that it’s a genre defying film. Written and directed by Mike Figgs, Hotel (2001) does not have the cult following that it deserves. I found myself intrigued and repelled by this film enough to let itContinue reading “Hotel (2001)”

Stephen King’s On Writing

This may be theContinue reading “Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot”

Stephen King’s Misery

Kathy Bates won the Oscar for her role as Annie in Stephen King’s Misery film adaptation. And, it was certainly well deserved. She is such a great actress, and she delivered such a great performance, or terrible depending on the perspective. Anyway, I have the funniest and cringiest story about me as a reader connectedContinue reading “Stephen King’s Misery”

Anne Rice’s The Vampire Chronicles

04 October 1941 – 11 December 2021 (80) How was I first acquainted with Anne Rice? I found a copy of The Body Thief, the fourth book in The Vampire Chronicles way back in 9th grade of high school. It was the only book at the bottom of a crooked, old book shelf of myContinue reading “Anne Rice’s The Vampire Chronicles”
