Stonehearst Asylum


If you’re looking for a fun way to spend a cold winter’s night (or really anytime) and are in the mood for something creepy without much gore, Stonehearst Asylum is a good option. Right now it’s on Netflix, so it won’t even cost anything additional to watch it, if you have an account.

The movie got mixed reviews back when it was released in 2014. To be honest, I knew it existed but that was about it, because it pretty much flew under the radar in the United States. While it’s not the best horror/mystery movie I’ve ever seen, it’s also far, far from the worst.

It’s also based on Edgar Allen Poe’s The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether, which instantly made it more compelling for me to check out.

Don’t Let Others Limit You

Don't let others limit youI’m back, after tangling with a flu virus that didn’t want to leave me alone, and then making it through the buildup to Christmas. Usually I don’t take such a long break from blogging, but I’m back now.

Sorry for those of you who were looking for a new blog post this week, I’ve been sick with a pretty nasty virus the last few days. A new post should be coming this next week.

Jessica Jones – The Regret-Filled Superhero

Netflix-Jessica-Jones-Teaser-Trailer-2I just finished watching the first season of Jessica Jones on Netflix.

I couldn’t get enough of it, and started watching while working out and whenever else I could justify it, fitting in twenty minutes here and there until I reached the final episode, then wished there was a second season to keep watching.

Let me start off by saying that what makes Jessica Jones so interesting is her flaws. She’s no Superman, hell she’s not even the arrogant tech genius Tony Stark. Jessica is her own person, one who is full of regrets.

Losing My Faith in the Paranormal

Welcome to my new blog and website! I’ve been planning to do this for some time, and so have finally taken the plunge. Many exciting new changes are coming in the near future, so keep coming back and I promise I won’t disappoint.

adobe structureOver the past several years I’ve experienced a crisis in faith, one that at times has made it difficult for me to continue writing about paranormal phenomena. This likely is a shocking revelation to some, given the reputation I’ve built up over the years, but it’s one I finally feel comfortable with showing.

I grew up Mormon, a religion I pursued to one degree or another all the way into my adulthood. I no longer follow the faith, a decision that certainly wasn’t easy to make. The reasons why are many and highly personal in nature, but let it suffice to say that for years and years I struggled to follow a pathway that felt so foreign and off to me.
