Hemlock Grove Poster

I know, I know, I’m a little late to the dance talking about this show, but I finally finished the first season of Hemlock Grove last night.  And I just wanted to briefly share my thoughts on it.  While a lot of people have enjoyed this show so far, there are, as always, those on the opposite side of the fence who didn’t.  And I have to say, in this case the split opinion of the show is sort of justified.  It’s a weird show, with weird characters and weird situations that take place throughout.  Let’s get into it so I can let you know where I stand.

House of the Wolf Man (2009): A Macabre Review.

House of the Wolfman

Greetings my lovely Necropolites.  As I’ve mentioned before, I am a huge fan of the classic Universal horror monsters.  They played a huge role in making me the horror fan I am today.  So when I stumbled across House of the Wolfman, I actually got pretty damn excited.  I mean, look at that movie poster.  It just screams loving tribute to the golden days of horror, right?  Not to mention that Ron Chaney, the grandson of Lon Chaney Jr., plays Dr. Bela Reinhardt!!!  That was also a big deal to me.  Well, does this movie live up to the classics I love?  Allow me to give you my thoughts.

Necropolis Update: May 15, 2013

Hey everyone.  This update is effectively an apology letter for not doing much in the way of posting anything to my usual posting numbers.  For a little while now I’ve been having an issue with my back, it’s at a point that I have trouble moving around and being comfortable sitting down at times.  It nothing too serious, but it’s been very hard to concentrate on things like reviews, as I’ve felt pretty mentally drained.

Anyway, as of this week I have some delightful prescription drugs I’m trying out, and I plan to see a physical therapist as soon as possible.  The point is, as of this week I’m going to try and get myself back in my ‘A’ game, and resume giving my two cents about horror.  Well, that’s about it.  Stay tuned for more horror delights.
