“Without calling for backup, Nelson exited from his police car and searched around the empty parking lot. The mist in the area was making visibility hard to see anything in the area. He took his gun out from his belt and was ready to arm himself. The full window of the supermarket was fogged and he couldn’t see the movement that was going on inside…”

This movie is about an ex-soldier venture into the forests of the pacific northwest to uncover the truth behind his fiance’s disappearance.
Its pretty much what you expect from a bigfoot/monster movie. They really try to sell you on the whole love story and for the most part, it did work. The horror sequences were pretty moderate and not over the top gory.
The creature design wasn’t so bad either. You really didn’t see the monsters face most of the time, but then again that’s not such a bad idea. Overall, its really just a guilty pleasure movie that you can enjoy for the most part.
Just this past week, my childhood movie & current favorite director will be married together in one project!
MGM is overseeing the new installment of Robocop and they brought on my all-time favorite director Neil Blomkamp (District 9) to direct the picture. The title of the film is “Robocop Returns”. The franchise began with Paul Verhoeven directed sci-fi action thriller that Orion released in 1987 (a shy year before I was born).
The original writers of the first film (Ed Neumeier and Michael Miner) will be producing & executive producing this film. Justin Rhodes (he’s also the co-writer of the new Terminator movie) will be re-writing the script with Ed & Michael.
I’m so damn excited about this new project! Not only do you have the original writers coming back for this project, but my all-time favorite director will be taking on this project. I’m very much heavily into sci-fi movies/stories and Robocop slowly introduces me into the love of sci-fi.
Since being a writer, I’ve deeply enjoyed stories with a amazing character development and in-depth storytelling and this childhood movie gives it just that. Neil is an amazing storyteller when it comes down to directing sci-fi (please see Chappie, Elysium, District 9) So I think he won’t have a hard time doing this project.
Neil is a huge inspiration in my works. I’m looking to go deep into the sci-fi genre & storytelling in that topic and his works were always an inspiration…I’m very excited for this project and I can’t wait to see what Neil and the rest of the crew come up with…
“Everyone got what they needed from the car that they could carry and made their way out into the dark open road to get to safety and to get some help…”

I got the idea to write this horror short story based on the movie Splinter and The Mist horror novella by Stephen King…
I had gone through a horrible “break up” if you will of a best friend I used to have…During my grieving process, I decided to write this short story out of anger and frustration.
I was very excited that I got a nice feedback from the editor I work with on Coffee House Writers. This writing project will last long into July and I’m very excited to write out the next chapters…
Monsters, horror & sci-fi are the things I love to write about…

The raindrops outside the grimy streets of London made everything so serein and dark in the room. Janita laid across her sick bed. Coughing and hacking so much blood in her soaked handkerchief. Only a few weeks have passed since Janita and Vincent have met and already their encounter had come to admire one another.
At first, Janita thought she would never see the dark curly hair stranger ever again. It had only been a few days apart from their last meeting when he stumbled back into the brothel. A few nights they didn’t make love to each other. Just small chit-chatting about themselves. It seems mostly Janita was talking more about her life then Vincent was. But every ongoing night, Vincent became more like a regular of sorts. Soon after the first few weeks, Janita would cancel all her appointments during the evening, just to be with Vincent every passing hour of the night.
Their lovemaking only grew intense and passionate. He never made her feel like a worthless whore, but more like a goddess to be worshiped. There were nights where he would leave small bite marks on her tender body. But by the next morning, they would completely disappear along with her handsome lover.
It wasn’t long before Janita could realize that she was falling deeply in love with Vincent. It wasn’t just his handsome features she was falling in love with. His charm, his boldness and at times his dry humor can be intriguing and seductive by nature. He seemed wise, far wiser beyond his years. But he still had a soft young face that can at times distract the fact he can seem older by nature.
But deep down inside her, Janita knew this bliss would not last. She knew she would not be on this earth much longer. And for those reasons, she started to push Vincent away. Refusing to see him or speak to him on most occasions. She was on the verge of death. And to find this deep love that she had for Vincent would only kill her deeper inside.
A tear fell down Janita’s face as she looked out behind the dusted window of her darkened bedroom. The only thing that brightens the room was the lit candles that were scattered about. Death was only creeping beside her with each passing moment. All she could do was pray that it would take her swiftly and soundly. Her cream-colored nightgown clung to her sweated body as her fever started to take over. Her skin was deathly pale and her long raven black hair was matted to her soaked face. Blood stained her handkerchief and her white sheets.
‘When will death take me?’ Janita pleaded in her mind as she found it harder to breathe with each passing moment.
‘Not tonight my love’…
