REVIEW OF MIDWINTER BY SPLATS OF BLOOD – ‘An interesting and inventive horror short story by Chad Schimke. Midwinter caught me off guard initially because it began much like any other fantasy story. The pace of Midwinter immediately quickened due to its action packed story. I had no trouble getting immersed in the world of Midwinter and I found myself eager to go on to the next page. With the vivid imagery of graphic events, Midwinter is a short story you don’t want to bypass.’

GONE GIRL MOVIE REVIEW - David Fincher has directed some of the best edgy movies in recent memory including ‘Seven’, ‘Fight Club’, ‘Zodiac’, ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ and ‘Gone Girl’. A lot of the media focused on the (supposed) central theme of a marriage that’s falling apart. But I think that’s missing the point of the movie and also perhaps the book. In reality ‘Gone Girl’, in title and plot, is about an over-the-top female protagonist who goes off the deep end to get what she wants. She’s gone, in every possible way. Gone, real gone. What do I love about this movie? The plot twists, double crosses, risk taking, smug public faces, contrasted with private lies. It takes guts to pull off a story line like this. I think this just might be a movie that pulls it off. If you’re equipped to handle liberal doses of horror, darkness, sex and violence, watch this movie.
