Speak No Evil Movie Review [Last Movie Outpost]

One of our aims when we set up Last Movie Outpost a couple of years ago, as a troop of movie fans feeling like we didn’t really have an online home, was to build a community. It looks like it might be working, with the roster of valued Outposters growing every day. We also know we have a LOT of lurkers. There are tens of thousands of unique regular visitors who keep returning but never comment. One has broken cover to review Speak No Evil (2022).


We Haunt These Woods Book Review [Hellnotes]

We Haunt These Woods is a truly entertaining read, with nods to horror tropes that fans will enjoy. Wooded areas can be peaceful and meditative, or they can be frightening and foreboding. Cornetto chose the latter option, and she wields it wisely.


Anne Rice [The Official Site]

Anne Rice (born Howard Allen Frances O'Brien; October 4, 1941 – December 11, 2021) was an American author of gothic fiction, erotic literature, and Christian literature. She was best known for her series of novels The Vampire Chronicles. Books from The Vampire Chronicles were the subject of two film adaptations—Interview with the Vampire (1994) and Queen of the Damned (2002).

Born in New Orleans, Rice spent much of her early life in the city before moving to Texas, and later to San Francisco. She was raised in an observant Catholic family but became an agnostic as a young adult. She began her professional writing career with the publication of Interview with the Vampire (1976), while living in California, and began writing sequels to the novel in the 1980s. In the mid-2000s, following a publicized return to Catholicism, Rice published the novels Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt and Christ the Lord: The Road to Cana, fictionalized accounts of certain incidents in the life of Jesus. Several years later she distanced herself from organized Christianity, citing disagreement with the Catholic Church's stances on social issues but pledging that faith in God remained "central to [her] life." However, she later considered herself a secular humanist.

Rice's books have sold over 100 million copies, making her one of the best-selling authors of modern times. While reaction to her early works was initially mixed, she gained a better reception with critics in the 1980s. Her writing style and the literary content of her works have been analyzed by literary commentators. She was married to poet and painter Stan Rice for 41 years, from 1961 until his death from brain cancer in 2002 at age 60. She and Stan had two children, Michele, who died of leukemia at age five, and Christopher, who is also an author.

In addition to her vampire novels, Rice authored books such as The Feast of All Saints (adapted for television in 2001) and Servant of the Bones, which formed the basis of a 2011 comic book miniseries. Several books from The Vampire Chronicles have been adapted as comics and manga by various publishers. Rice also authored erotic fiction under the pen names Anne Rampling and A. N. Roquelaure, including Exit to Eden, which was later adapted into a 1994 film.


Dark Tales of Cryptids and Park Rangers [eBookLingo]

Imagine being chased by a Bigfoot, stalked by a Skinwalker, or sucked into another dimension that’s a disturbingly dark mirror of our own. What would you do when the very creature that’s stalking you is like nothing you’ve ever encountered and the sight of it freezes you to the bone?


Stray, A Game About Freedom, Deep Thoughts While Gaming [Odysee]

The new video game "Stray" and the free feline exploration of the gameplay, peels back the deep existential ennui of a technologically advanced, but spiritually bankrupt cyberpunk world where humanity has been replaced with robots. On this episode of Deep Thoughts While Gaming, Chris Chappell delves into the philosophical works of Martin Heidegger and Soren Kierkegaard as the game developers of Stray must have intended in their social commentary.


The Things We Cannot Change Movie Review [Indie Horror Films]

It is impressive when a film takes a topic down to basics. For most vampire tales, as soon as one is bit and joins the “team,” it is all bets off and they instantly become a villain (e.g., 1985’s Fright Night), with rare exceptions (such as 1987’s Near Dark or 2007’s 30 Days of Night). A vampire with a conscious is always interesting.

Terrifier 2 Doesn’t Clown Around on Brutal Kills [Horror Obsessive]

What the f*ck is Art the Clown? I’d be lying if I said, “As I was sitting in the theater for Terrifier 2, this was the number one question on my mind.” No, I came to Terrifier 2 fully aware of what to expect. Despite a Rotten Tomatoes score of 100% with thirteen reviews in place when I entered, I didn’t enter the cinema with the presumption that Terrifier 2 would be an instant classic. Rotten Tomatoes only rates positive reviews versus negative reviews. Terrifier 2’s Metascore of 68% is far more on the nose of how to gauge your excitement, but, as any horror fan knows, that’s still kind of rare. Terrifier 2 has been rated favorably on an old-school report card level while also being universally enjoyed so far, so, of course, I wanted to check this out.
