Revisiting his old ways, Stephen King’s newest novel, Joyland has the heart of that disenchanted college youth you once were and the fun you were bound to have in spite of your looming shortcomings.Joyland is a quick read that ticks you slowly up the top of that rickety rollercoaster just to plummet you headfirst into unseen curves and humps. A nostalgic ride through a lost summer, a first love, a mysterious new place and the sweat of a summer job, King haunts you with things you’ve tried to forget and then those things you yearn to remember.

Left on the roadside by their wayward and absconding mother, Delphine Dodd realizes this time is not like the others. She and her little sister, Olive, have been discarded on the side of the road like trash, only to find themselves floating aimlessly into the care of their unfamiliar grandmother. Set in the early settlement years before the First World War, S.P Miskowski weaves Delphine’s vivid recollections of her adolescence into a haunting dreamscape.

**Important note: NO, this book has nothing to do with the infamous weirdo and horse video by the same name. Just in-case any of you get confused or decide to google "Mr. Hands." I'd definitely add "book" to those search terms - or don't, if you're into that kind of thing. **

Who hasn’t had the tiniest notion of being the one to discover something new and exciting at some point in one’s career or life? Technically, I suppose that can be argued, but for my sake, let’s just agree to some extent that everyone wants to be a part of something unique, yes? Finding where one belongs and what one is destined for in their life is the foundation of Sonia Taylor Brock’s book one of the Swamp Witch series, The Inheritance of a Swamp Witch.

One of my favorite things about Netflix is the growing number of television series that are available for instant streaming at my beck and call. "Supernatural" is one of those shows that I've recently started watching and so far, I think it's pretty great. Although I'm only just starting the second season its easy to see why the show has such a huge following. Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki star as Dean and Sam, two brothers on the hunt for their father, the man who taught them how to hunt supernatural entities.

It’s apparent that the nearly consistent 15 year long presence of “found-footage” and subjective camera POV visual aesthetics in film and television (FFSC from here out) has tapped into a certain type of audio-visual experience that connects with viewers. Though at first glance we could write off these stylistic techniques as cash-grabs it is surprising that the novelty of such techniques has continued to raise more eyebrows in curiosity rather than skepticism.

When it was announced this past July that Guillermo Del Toro would be making "At the Mountains of Madness," fans of H.P. Lovecraft and horror in general squealed with delight. In general the excitement can be attributed to the fact that in general, everything Del Toro touches turns to gold, but to a certain type of genre fan, the announcement meant even more. It meant that the work of Lovecraft would be featured in major motion picture with a substantial budget and legitimate actors, as opposed to the straight to DVD community theater-esque productions that they were accustomed to.

Hollywood loves its unnecessary remakes, so it shouldn't be too surprising that they are looking at Pascal Laugeir's "Martyrs" for the official treatment. What is surprising is that "Twilight" producer Wyck Godfrey is looking at Kristin Stewart to headline.

Breck Eisner thrilled us all with his remake of "The Crazies" and is moving on to some non-horror related fare such as "Escape From New York" and "Flash Gordon". He'll be making his way back to the horror work though as he has taken on the rights to the classic Dracula comic "Blood of the Innocent".

Joe Lynch's upcoming horror comedy "The Knights of Badassdom" just got a whole lot hotter as "Firefly" alum Summer Glau signs on to the cast.

Need some more Sam and Dean Winchester in your life? You better hope so as Warner Brothers Japan is preparing 22 episode "Supernatural: The Animation"! Details on the new show are scarce at this time, but the official site talks of recreating some of the fan favorite episodes of the series as well as some new adventures mixed in.
