So Halloween is coming soon, and here's some of my favorite cryptids. Cryptids are creatures that are believed to exist, but haven't been confirmed by the scientific community. This isn't an exhausted list and is subject to change.
1) The Loch Ness Monster: Probably one of the most famous examples of a cryptid in cryptozoology. Believed to be an ancient creature such as a plesiosaur, the Loch Ness Monster, or Nessie, is believed to inhabit Loch Ness. Described as having a long neck, flippers, and endless humps, accounts of the creature date far back to the time of Saint Columbia. Interest in the creature continued until in the 1930s, an alleged photograph of the monster dubbed the Surgeon's Photograph goes down in history as one of the best…Read more >
So, I’ll just start by saying that seeing Satou act completely normal is really unnerving. So this episode answers one of the biggest questions the show had at the time: who was in the body bags? After Satou’s aunt was revealed to still be kicking, who then was the likely candidate? In this episode, we see Satou continually dropping by one of her neighbor’s rooms to model for him. This would culminate in Satou bringing Shio in one rainy day. The neighbor had initially drawn himself to Satou because of that sense of incompleteness within her. Now with this little girl in the equation, it’s ruining his vision. So, he tries to strangle her to death only to get bludgeoned to death by Satou who concludes that this must be what it felt like to r…Read more >
Oh my goodness, I love this insane show. It’s so wrong, but it really gets under your skin. In this one, we learn that Sumire was trying to model herself after Satou which is naturally creepy, but by this show’s standards, it’s normal behavior. Though Satou stops her from pursuing this path by giving her an unexpected kiss and telling her that she likes her the way she is…though because she had opened her locker, she was kind of peeved off.
Then we have Taiyo’s segment. Just oh my…While this show is definitely not realistic, Taiyo’ s segment was both hilarious and disturbing. I mean, having all those flyers of Shio up in his room…I take it his parents never walked in? If I were his mother, I’d be all like “Boy, what the fuck is with all thi…Read more >
What an utter pile of trite this film was. At best, the acting was passable. There weren't any actors that I would say are phenomenal, but they were average. As for the visual effects, I will say that they were decent as well. As for the whole idea behind the Slender Man itself, I have no issues with because for there is little to no official backstory behind this internet boogeyman, so the film not really going into an explanation of what he is or where he came from is a nonissue.
What is an issue is characters. All of the characters in the film hardly have personalities aside from the cliché tropes that horror films use. Because of this, the film fails to keep you invested with the characters making their inevitable confrontation with the…Read more >
Happy Tree Friends. What more do I have to say here? On the surface, Happy Tree Friends appears to be family friendly with its cutesy art style and character designs. However, this is merely a façade underneath which belies a truly screwed up premise. Each episode starts off fine with cute little forest animals going about their daily lives but then without that much time in, the show transforms into a violent display of death and mayhem with characters getting into horrible accidents or dying in some of the most brutal ways. Which is one of the reasons as to why I love the show.
I can't remember the first video from Mondo Media I watched about Happy Tree Friends, but I can definitely recall being utterly shocked because I was reeled in thinki…Read more >
