About

Um, hi, I’m Justin.

I like horror. Especially in filmic form. And I like to talk about movies, so hey, why not make a blog to give you my opinion on such things? I know you never asked for it, but that’s what makes me so generous. I’m willing to GIVE before you even ASK. Ain’t I grand?

I’ll delve into some horror news, opinion, and reviews of films past and present. There are a lot of horror films out there — probably more than any other genre — so nobody’s seen ’em all, and while I won’t try to see everything, I’d like to fill in some of the gaps in my film knowledge, so hopefully you won’t mind me binding and gagging you and taking you on this journey with me.

Oh, and why “Zombie vs. Shark”? Because I love zombies. I love sharks (Jaws is my favorite movie of all time). And when you put the two together, you get cinematic magic. Cinemagic.

  4. I’m Sean Hood, horror screenwriter. I most recently wrote episodes of Fear Itself and Masters of Horror.

    On Friday, I wrote a blog article about Friday 13th director Marcus Nispel called “My Dinner With Marcus.” It’s about the moment I realized that in order to get the job writing his upcoming project, Subterranean (aka Pod), I would have to eat a sandwich of blood sausage and sliced tongue.

    Please share it with your readers if you think they would like it.

  7. Hello, I wanted to see if you were interested in posting something about my new horror web series. It’s called, The Scare Game, and will air on October 15th.
    Here is the trailer:

    Thanks and email me if you would like more information.

  8. Hey Justin,

    I wanted to let you in on a horror movie your readers might enjoy reading about. It’s called “The Shortcut” and it arrived on DVD September 29th.

    So what’s the movie about? Good question. The premise is simple: A group of teens, on their way home from school, come across a rarely-used shortcut. Turns out it’s rarely-used for a reason. An old man who’s owned a farm there his whole life doesn’t take kindly to visitors. And if you think you know what’s coming next, you have no idea.

    Unlike a lot of recent horror flicks, “The Shortcut” has no big special effect budgets or gratuitous violence. The movie’s thrills are created by its creepiness and atmosphere; it builds suspense instead of raising the body count. I’d compare it more to “Halloween” or classic Hitchcock than “Saw” or “Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” “The Shortcut” is subtle, smart, and, with its hot cast–including Katrina Bowden (“30 Rock”) and heartthrob Drew Seeley (“Another Cinderella Story”)—a great date movie.

    I think your fans will enjoy hearing about this movie, which puts a twist on traditional urban legend stories. If you ’d like some more info on the cast and story, check out theshortcutmovie.com. Also, feel free to email me back if you have any questions or would like to arrange an interview with director Nicholaus Goossen.

    Thanks,

    Mark

  11. Hi Justin,

    My name is Jeremy Bishop, and though you probably haven’t heard of this name (yet), I am also a fairly popular thriller author under a different name, with eight books in print in eight languages. But I’m keeping that name under wraps for now. I’m writing to you because my first horror novel, TORMENT, comes out as an e-book exclusive on November 15th. I was wondering if you might be willing to give it a read, and if you enjoy it, post a review on your blog (and if you’re feeling kind, on Amazon, too)?

    Here are some details about the story:

    Small town reporter, Mia Durante, finds herself having brunch with the President of the United States on the day civilization comes to an end. An electromagnetic pulse blinds the U.S. Cars crash. Planes fall. Chaos reigns. Power is restored within minutes, but it’s already too late. Russian nukes are falling. U.S. allies around the world are already wiped out. The United States will cease to exist inside of five minutes.

    After giving the order to launch a full-scale retaliation, dooming the planet, the president, White House staff, Secret Service and those lucky enough to be visiting the white house, are whisked below ground where they board several Earth Escape Pods. As the EEPs launch into Earth orbit, missiles descend.

    Less than forty survive the end of the world. When they return, they’re greeted by survivors of a different sort. The bloodbath that follows leaves Durante and nine other survivors on the run. They find themselves fighting for survival in a world in which only torment remains and where death is the only escape.

    If you’d like a copy of the book, just reply to this e-mail and I’ll add you to the list of advance readers. I’ll be sending out e-copies next week in PDF and Word formats. My only request is that you keep the fact that Jeremy Bishop is a pen name under wraps. Thanks so much for considering!
