Keeping with the series’ weekly output of varying types of horror fiction, we’ve got another fine story of fear from our friend David Martin. This time, he’s giving you fright fanatics, “Bridegroom of Blood“, a tale of a husband, his wife, a demonic statue, and the letter than ties them all together. It’s a good […]

FICTIONAL FRIGHTS: Jerry Smith’s “I’M TIRED OF DYING (Who killed me?!)”


Well, I figure since we’ve been able to kick off our FICTIONAL FRIGHTS series with two very entertaining short stories, courtesy of Sean Keller and David Martin, that it was time for me to throw my hat into the ring, so to speak.

FICTIONAL FRIGHTS: Sean Keller’s “Red Noise”


Sean Keller is a jack of all trades, and if you disagree with that statement, chances are that you don’t know the guy. One helluva singer/songwriter, a screenwriter who has written for horror legends Dario Argento (GIALLO) and John Carpenter (the GREAT L.A. GOTHIC, which sadly fell through), Nicolas Cage (Keller co-wrote one of Cage’s […]
