It has been a few years since Dracula has made an appearance. Vampires themselves are still big in movies and shows, but Dracula himself has been rather quite as of lately. This is all about to change thanks to NBC. NBC gave the green light to produce 10 episodes of ‘Dracula’ based on a script written by Cole Haddon and produced by Colin Callender, Tony Krantz, and Gareth Neame who have brought you such shows as “24″, Downtown Abbey” and “The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby”. The role of Dracula is going to be played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
According to NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt this is going to be a “cool new version” of Dracula. The show is going to be set in the 1890′s with Dracula being an American entrepreneur in London to try to bring modern science … Read More »

The legend of Tall Man in this movie is similar to the popular urban legend called Slender man, who is also a mythical tall and dark creature who steals … Read More »
“The world we live in exists only in our denial of the real world” -anonymous
In my research I have come across the urban legend/myth of shadow people, a phenomena that seems to plague many people. These creatures, or whatever they are, look like shadows or silhouette’s of humans and are usually seen out of the corner of your eye and sometimes appear on walls in your house. When you try and look at them head on, they will dart past and disappear into a wall or another room.
One of the most misunderstood entities to be seen, they seem to come out mostly at night and usually hide in dark corners of hallways. They are similar to the legend called Slender Man, an unusually tall dark suited figure that stalks humans and is purported to steal children, according to ancient myths.
But unlike … Read More »
A plane flew overhead, it chopped the clouds behind it as passed.
Clint Peters stood in his front yard and watched as it traveled into the path of the sun staring as long as he could. Squinting into the light, Clint wondered where those people were going and if they were looking down at him. He was looking up from his huge farm, his place in the country where he had everything he needed including food, water and electricity. There was no need to ever leave. He was content in his isolation and only went to the city to get the occasional entertainment. He wondered if they looked down at his home in the middle of nothing and thought of peace and quiet.
This made him grin a little on one side of his wide yet thin-lipped mouth. He … Read More »
All across the United States, stories of people biting or even eating one another before going into fits of uncontrollable violence have been popping up. It all started with the may 26th attack on Ronald Poppo, whose face was eaten off by Rudy Eugene, in Miami. A string of milder forms of people eating other people soon followed causing rumors of a zombie apocalypse approaching. Now, it seems the invasion has moved to China.
This time, the attack came from a drunken bus driver named Dong in Wenzhou City, China. Dong was having lunch with friends while allegedly drunk when all of a sudden he rushed out into traffic stopping a woman in her vehicle. He jumped on the hood and began beating at the windshield.
The vehicle’s driver, a woman named Du, ran from her car and was chased down by … Read More »
There are very few games that can make me jump and yell in terror while I am playing.
After all…it’s only a game. But, the Dead Space franchise is truly terrifying. The creatures you fight come out of nowhere and are very hard to kill. Unlike most games, head shots do not help.
The undead monsters chasing you may look dead at first, but then they pop up and scare the crap out of you at the last second, or jump at you from a dark corner, or bust through a wall. This is seriously one of the scariest games I have ever played. The monsters are mutated dead humans that have been twisted into horrid spiked shapes that do not die easily.
After playing the games I then, just recently, watched DEAD SPACE Aftermath which is supposed to take place between DEAD SPACE 1 and … Read More »
