This Book is Full of Spiders
on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
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.
“Easily one of the worst films released as part of the Scream-inspired slasher renaissance of the late ‘90s and early ‘00s.”Ready Player One (2011)
“Set in the not-so-distant future of 2044, the plot follows 18-year-old Wade Watts AKA Parzival, as he spends his days hunting for an Easter egg in his favorite video game. Sounds kind of uneventful, doesn’t it? Or at least, it sounds like my Saturday afternoons, and therefore not exactly novel-worthy material, but the book is surprisingly awesome and realistic.”RIP superhero origin stories (1978 - 2015)
“There’s one thing Marvel fans, movie fans, and pretty much all of civilized society are in unanimous agreement upon: Please, not another Spider-Man origin story.”21 Jump Street (2012)
“21 Jump Street is a meta-film that laughs at its very existence.”Fear by L. Ron Hubbard
"You see it time and again in every internet bio of L. Ron Hubbard that he was just some “obscure science-fiction author” who just happened to stumble onto the biggest money making concern since sliced bread. Putting everything else aside, that’s simply not true. Not only was he one of the founding fathers of modern sci-fi, but that wasn’t even what he was famous for."The death of practical effects in horror
In this episode, the Fear Fan takes a sobering look at the debate between practical effects and CGI, and why horror will always need the latter.
