I guess I should have clued you in as to what the story involves! *L* An unscruptulous graveyard caretaker ... I hate to spill too much in case you have a chance to read it ... tolerates the oversized rats that infest his cemetary. He fears any investigation into a complaint might expose his less-than-noble activities. One night, when his prize is literally snatched from his fingertips by the rats, he decides the rodents have pushed him too far and push back ... following them into the tunnels that riddle the underground. Sound familar?
Hey Clyde ... I ran across a short story a few days ago in an anthology ... THE GRAVEYARD RATS by Henry Kuttner. It's an excellent story, and I don't recall reading it before. However, the more I think about it ... I believe I've seen it. It's an older story and I know you are a huge fan of television anthologies ... could this have been the basis for one of the episodes? It is so clear in my head ... I know I must have seen this somewhere. Thought it might ring a bell with you ... any idea?
Hope you're having a good week.
Hi Clyde ... sorry, no Facebook for this gal ... I am old-school, through and through. LOL ... IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE is such a hoot! I watched the behind-the-scenes included on the disc ... what a ground-breaking film ... and such talent attached to it. I'd love to see it the way it was meant to be seen ... a big screen, dual projectors, 3-D effects ... really amazing.
Hope you enjoyed your movie night! Did you see/read TIMELINE? One of my favorites ...
Hi Clyde ... hope this finds you well ... ventured out to see THE RITE last night with Anthony Hopkins. Brilliant! You really must see it ... It has the earmarks of a classic ... very stylish.
And tonight, on the small screen, I'm watching IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE! How's that for a one-eighty? LOL
Have a good weekend.
That's usually the case with book to movie adaptions. I actually went out to a bookstore recently and bought the first three books in the Vampire Chronicles Series after seeing that you enjoyed Queen of the Damned-- hopefully I will too. Now I'll be able to see for myself what the movie was missing, at least when I get around to reading them.
Thanks! I just browsed through your bookshelf as well. It's quite amazing, you have great taste in literature. I saw that you've read Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice. I watched the movie a couple of weeks ago. I don't know if you saw it but if you did, is it similar to the book?
Hey your books shelf isn't too shabby either. I'm not a big horror movie buff but, I watch them anyway and scare myself!! It's so funny that I can read horror books but, as far as watching scarey movies??? They scare me more..retarded huh? Especially since the books are more graphic. I think the scarey movie that I've seen recently is "A haunting in Conneticuit"...it wasn't so much the movie as the bonus features. When they interviewed the family! That scared the beejeezus outta me!! Also Paranormal Activity scared me too!! I know it wasn't real but, it was pretty creepy!!!
I can't believe you have never read Koontz. You're killing me! ^_^ My absolute favorite author of all time. I would suggest you start with Lightning or Fear Noting. Lightning is not really horror, but a thriller as far as I am concerned. Fear Nothing has more of a horror aspect. Glad you requested the friendship....always nice to meet a fellow book lover. ^_^
hehe what self-respecting horror fan doesn't like zombies? well as long as nobody coats them with glitter and turns them into teenage heart-throbs. So far the only zombies I've ran across that seem remotely lovable are Rachel and Gage in Pet Semetary.....and that is probably just my weird way of thinking:) That book strikes me as awfully sad more than spooky.
I did read the info on yours and it sounds interesting. I would definitely like to grab a copy so I'll look it up when I order new things.
I started the Dark tower series ages ago and read through Wastelands I believe. I quit reading them not because I didn't like them but because my impatient nature goes against waiting for more :) I just picked them back up this year and read 2-6. Haven't gotten around to ordering the final one yet.
I did end up starting The terminal man this morning and must say its been very good so far and hooks you in at the start.
I noticed you have a book of your own which is awesome. I'm going to add it to my list. It looks like we have a lot of interests in common related to subject matter.
Hi saw you have one of the two Michael Crichton novels that got re-homed to me and I've been looking at. I've only read his Jurassic Park and that was a long while back. I see you gave Timeline a good review so that's a plus. Have you read The Terminal Man?? It's pretty short but its back cover synopsis is intriguing. I plan to give them a try but I've just go so much in my to-be-read pile :)
