VIDEO: This Book is Full of Spiders

We’re sorry...

This video is no longer available due to the shutdown of Blip.tv.

It’s the first episode of Fright Bites, a new weekly series from the Fear Fan where he provides brief horror reviews. Here, he looks at the horror novel This Book Is Full of Spiders: Seriously, Dude, Don’t Touch It by David Wong, author of John Dies at the End, soon to be a major motion picture starring Paul Giamatti.

    Hey great to see another creature feature! Will Terror Obscura and Fearcast get shelved for a more streamlined review format?

    • fearfanforever

       Nope! Terror Obscura will still be an ongoing series, but the FearCast was just too complex to produce on a weekly basis with my schedule. Also, I recently asked longtime fans what they thought I could do to improve the show, and some of the responses I got were that they should be shorter and more analytical.
      Doing things like this, I should be able to please both the people who like my old show, and those who wanted something a little more straightforward.
      Hope you continue to enjoy both series!

        I can only imagine how labor intensive your previous edits had to be. I always enjoy hearing your take on the horror classics. Keep up the great work!

  • This is a nice new format you have here.  Hope to see a lot more of it. 

    Now for some fanboying:

    “John Dies at the End” was originally released by Wong on his former website pointlesswasteoftime.com (if you enter that site it redirects you to cracked.com since Wong is now an editor there) starting way back in 2001.  It was just several different short stories he released every Halloween and it was never intended to be a novel.  That’s why it jumps around in time like it does.  So JDatE is really three different John and Dave stories plus the epilogue was originally a completely separate story called “The Basketball Diaries” Wong adapted for the novel!

    I’ve been a fan of Wong since 2004.  It really is a success story for him.  Going from funny short stories he released on his own website to a complete novel and finally a movie!  Sometimes things do work out for the little guy.
