Horror Author Russell James Talks About His New Novel DEMON DAGGER, Evil Theme Park Mascots, and Places That Give Him The Creeps

Image
Heath : Thanks so much for taking some time out of your writing schedule to talk about your work! To say that you're prolific feels like an understatement; you've published over 20 novels and consistently release multiple books within a year. Your latest novel, Demon Dagger --a supernatural thriller in which the predator becomes the prey--is your third release of 2022. Also, while you frequently work in the horror genre, you also write adventure tales featuring paleontologist Grant Coleman and park ranger Kathy West. Where do you draw inspiration for your stories, which all seem to draw upon monsters, demons, the supernatural, and science gone wrong? Russell James : Every story has a different spark that lights its fire. It frequently comes from something I've experienced or an article I've read. For some reason Smithsonian   Magazine  and National Geographic are great for horror story inspirations, though I'm certain the editors there don't intend that at all.

Review: Prey (2022)

Image
The highest compliment I can award  Prey  is that it feels like neither a sequel or franchise fodder. Technically, it's the latest in a long line of Predator  sequels and spin-offs, but the movie stands on its own by offering a self-contained story that doesn't require any past knowledge of the series or its lore. It also eschews many of the blockbuster's trappings by narrowing its scope to just a handful of characters, keeping the action intimate, and limiting the running time to a restrained 100 minutes--none of which are wasted. The film is a study in economic storytelling in which every part is in service of the whole. A steel trap that gets introduced in Act I gets used in Act II. A line of dialogue about the importance of keeping bow strings dry is foreshadowing of a future event. Everything is here for a reason.   Prey  is a sci-fi survival story in which a Predator alien arrives on Earth in the year 1719 to hunt the most dangerous game. It finds that challenge in th

Review - The Old Man: The Movie (2019)

Image
The Old Man: The Movie ( original title:  Vanamehe Film ), is a weird flick. I mean REALLY weird. Take the charming, family-friendly stop motion animation of Aardman's  Wallace and Gromit  films and turn that on its head, throw in adult humor, F-words, truly bizarre set pieces and interactions, and then filter that through Euro-culture and you end up with what we have here.  The Old Man is a web series from Estonia (north of Latvia, south of Finland) that follows the exploits of a grumpy old farmer who lives in the country and is occasionally visited by his grandchildren. The web shorts that inspired the film are dark, strange, and a little sardonic. Exhibit A: in one short, The Old Man goes to his barn one freezing cold night to discover that his cow is in the middle of birthing a calf, but the calf seems stuck. He pulls it out and looks at the warm birthing cavity, then climbs inside for warmth, then falls asleep. The next day, he awakes to find himself freezing. When he climbs b

Review: The Last Broadcast (1998)

Image
What is real and what is false? 1998's The Last Broadcast  is a found footage film that asks this question and holds a microscope up to the then-nascent World Wide Web and the burgeoning internet technology that was just starting to trickle down to the average consumer. Told in a documentary, true crime style, The Last Broadcast recounts the mysterious deaths of local public access TV show hosts as they go in search of the mythical Jersey Devil in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey. Of the group that went into the woods on that fateful day, only one came back out, covered in the blood of his companions. Was it murder, or something far more sinister? The film seeks to uncover the truth of what really happened and separate fact from fiction. The Last Broadcast  is a horror film, but those expecting true terror are going to be disappointed. It's a slow burn with a focus on investigation and forensics that feels more like an episode of  Dateline . The film is really about  using techn

Review - Fanny: The Right to Rock (2021)

Image
History seems to have forgotten Fanny, an all-female hard rock band that formed in the late sixties and may be remembered as the first "girl group" to play their own instruments and release a full rock and roll album. The story of these cheekily-named rock and roll pioneers has never really been told, an injustice that David Bowie (who dated a member of the band for a year) sought to rectify twenty years ago. It's taken this long for the story of Fanny to finally be told, thanks to this new documentary from writer/director Bobbi Jo Hart.  The members of the band guide us through their formative years, with sisters Jean and June Millington recalling their youth as Filipino immigrants being raised in America during a time of civil unrest, through the early growing pains of the band, and finally to a breakup at the peak of the group's power. In addition to the members of Fanny, we also hear from some of rock's biggest names: Joe Elliott from Def Leppard, Todd Rundgre
