My abscence

For those who follow my “Supernatural Saturday Night” Series may wonder where I was last weekend.  I had planned to review the Carrie remake and launch my series on Sequels with the wildly popular Scream franchise from horror master mind, Wes Craven as a tie in to previous reviews of his work.

Friday afternoon while attempting to clean and move my office from one location to another (which still hasn’t been completed either) I happened to be watching the news WNOL when it was announced that Officer Taylor Segura of Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Department had been killed the night before.  I first met Taylor at Nicholls University where were apart of the last class of criminal justice students they produced.  I was one of the non-officers  and had the honor of being one of the only members of a study group that was not an active officer in some way.

I was somewhat of a wreck this past weekend and just could not give my attention to my beloved horror genre especially the scheduled appearance on Zombie Talk Radio promoting Blood Reign Literary Magazine and its December launch.  Very few things have been completed due to Taylor’s loss and I’m currently trying to play catch up.

We buried Taylor on Monday as a cherished member of the law enforcement community. 

Throwback Thursday Review “Child’s Play”

I open my series on successful remakes with the cult classic Child’s Play Franchise starring Chris Sarandon, Brad Douriff, and Catherine Hicks.  Interesting how after portraying Mrs. Barclay in this movie she goes on to have a successful career as Mrs. Camden on Seventh Heaven.
