BOOK REVIEW: Donnie's Review of Joe R. Lansdale's THE DRIVE IN

BOOK REVIEW: Donnie's Review of Joe R. Lansdale's THE DRIVE IN

THE DRIVE-IN: Review by The Horror Hypothesis 

“I suppose, ultimately, this will read like a diseased version of those stupid essays you’re asked to write in school each fall after summer break. You know, ‘How I Spent My Summer Vacation.’” - Joe R. Lansdale

I love going to the movies.  The entire experience is sacred.  The popcorn. The candy. The soda.  The lights dimming upon the start of the trailers.  Abandoning reality for 90 odd minutes in a dark room crowded with strangers...

Mindi Joins the Murderinos and Possibly More Podcast Cults!

Stay Sexy & Don't Get Murdered "My Favorite Murder" hosts Karen Kilgariff & Georgina Hardstark

Night Worms Book Party: Walk The Darkness Down by John Boden

A note from Sadie Hartmann, Mother Horror:

I read WALK THE DARKNESS DOWN and it made a huge impact on me. I had a longing in my heart to talk to other people about it but there just wasn't a lot of traction for this book on social media. I asked the author, John Boden, if he would be willing to send his book to twenty people in exchange for reviews (either good or bad) he agreed. With the help of Kallie (@pageandparlor) we launched a review campaign for this book. I had...
