Bio
An afficionado of the weird, fantastical, horror-y and speculative with too many mad thoughts on the brain that need to get out of my skull. I don't necessarily review things, I just spew my thoughts on them out....hopefully it will make some kind of sense? Here I will discuss all aspects of horror and fantastical fiction - TV, cinema, film, literature. I may venture outside the genre on the rare occasion. Oh yeah. I'm an Amazon associate.
