L.J. Moran L.J. Moran currently lives in S. Jersey. She’s into animal rescue, horror conventions, and is addicted to coffee. The threat not the act of physical harm is most compelling to me. A scene in Flavors of Death uses a small dark room, a victim chained to the floor and the tormentor nearby. The victim is given a quick glimpse of the nasty tools, the deformed animals waiting to be released to bite, then … Read more

One of my favorite topics is always the villain. If you have a character that is evil for the sake of evil, who cares. The best villain is the one who believes they are doing the right thing for the right reasons. And often, if the protagonist is the “evil” one, we find greater truths. Starting with Maleficent, you get to see the betrayal that turned an innocent protector into a vengeful being. This echoes … Read more

Thanks for dropping by for day 3 of the Women in Horror Month Blog Talks. Today is Scary Confessions, but mine is not so scary in that I draw much inspiration for my work from artwork. This started when I was a kid, during frequent visits to the Art Institute Chicago. Back then I was more of a visual artist than an artist of written words. If your genre is horror, how can you not … Read more

This week I’m reviewing The Horde (2009) for my monthly zombie movie choice. And in February I’m featuring a woman in my choices for Women in Horror Month. Here’s what the movie is about about: “A posse of crooked cops, malevolent gangsters and a horde of walking dead are the centre point of this gruesome, tight, action packed, claustrophobic tale of retribution and escape. Penned like animals, on the top floor of a deserted high-rise … Read more
This week I’m reviewing The Gift, not so much a horror movie as a psychological thriller, but equally disturbing a movie. Here’s what it’s about: “Simon and Robyn are a young married couple whose life is going just as planned until a chance encounter with an acquaintance from Simon’s high school sends their world into a harrowing tailspin. Simon doesn’t recognize Gordo at first, but after a series of uninvited encounters and mysterious gifts prove … Read more

Howdy all! Here’s what happened this week. Upcoming Events No new events this week, but I do have a new Events page. The Movies This week I suggested you watch Solomon Kane. Solomon Kane came out awhile back and apparently it didn’t do well at the box office. Not sure why. It was typical for fantasy, with dark magic and lots of sword fighting, but it was also a decent movie. Good acting, and the … Read more
Part 9 of Warrant for Damnation is available to read on WattPad. This week Barry Learns a lesson about his father. Enjoy! Go to part 9 or start reading below.
I happened upon Solomon Kane a few weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. “Once a mercenary of Queen Elizabeth I fighting Spaniards in Africa, Solomon met the Devil’s Reaper and discovered he was bound for hell. Barely escaping, he soon renounced violence to atone for his past sins, seeking out redemption in a life of peace. That is until the followers of sorcerer Malachi kidnap a Puritan girl, Meredith … Read more
