Back when I was in High school I took an art history class where we studied the life and works of artists from the Renaissance to the modern period. I had by this time already fancied myself an artist and had already figured out what was good art and [...]

Blood Rush (A Short Story by Guest Author Tessa Lee Carr)

2018-10-15T14:59:48+00:00

We shared our first kiss under the cherry blossom tree. It was perfect, like a scene from the movies. I stared into her eyes and brushed her soft hair from her delicate face. I saw the blood rush to her cheeks and imagined what it would be like to feel [...]

Reckoning Upon God: Frankenstein (Monster Memories)

2018-10-15T14:39:02+00:00

Frankenstein is one of the few classic monster movies that I did not see on a Saturday afternoon on a UHF channel.  No, this film was played in prime time. It was a special movie-of-the-week. A  re-showing of a classic film on “regular” TV. It was a big deal. [...]

Even the Moon is Frightened of Me: The Invisible Man (Monster Memories)

2018-10-15T14:38:39+00:00

An invisible man must be one of the more bizarre choices for a monster. First of all it’s not really a monster, not in the classical sense anyway. He is, after all, just a man. A deranged man, sure, but just a man nonetheless. There is nothing supernatural about [...]

Even a Man Who is Pure in Heart: The Wolf-Man (Monster Memories)

2018-10-15T14:31:27+00:00

By 1941 Universal had been making monster movies for over a decade. It had now become a well-oiled machine and while not quite formulaic just yet was well on its way to becoming so. The Wolf-Man still retains the moodiness and the harsh shadows emblematic of German Expressionism that [...]
