Three stories are interwoven together. The first, about a college student infatuated with his teacher. The second, a paranoid tale of two sisters - one good, the other evil, and the third about an African tribal doll that comes to life and terrorizes a woman in her apartment.
So a few weeks ago I asked one of my Camp buddies what he has been watching lately and Jacob kind of shocked me saying to check out Trilogy of Terror and its sequel that I will happy dust off my VHS copy soon and watch that one next. What surprised me the most was that I have never seen this one yet and let's face it it's a pretty popular tile in the horror movie world. And with Dan Curtis yelling action along with William F Nolan I knew I was in for a treat.
When Animals Attack: The 70 Best Horror Movies with Killer Animals
by Vanessa Morgan & B.L. Daniels and Moonlight Creek Publishing
The definitive horror movie guide for fans of killer animals and “revenge of nature” films.
When Animals Attack: The 70 Best Horror Movies with Killer Animals provides a fascinating and entertaining insight into the cinematographic world of animals on the rampage. From well-known predators such as sharks and lions to unusual killing machines like turkeys, elephants, frogs, cats, and rabbits, there is no shortage of the species on display in this book.
Leading horror writers and filmmakers present their favorite “animals attack” films through in-depth essays. Some of the films are touching, some are repulsive, and some are just plain silly. Not all of these horror movies line up with the critical consensus, yet they have one thing in common: they have made the heart of the writer beat faster with excitement.
It was a year ago since we last heard from CYANIDE's upcoming Lovecraftian horror RPG Call Of Cthulhu. Now the game is back at E3 with a new trailer as private investigator Edward Pierce struggles to distinguish between reality, madness, and the horrific supernatural as he uncovers the mysteries of Darkwater Island. The trailer looks amazing but the first person view will keep me from playing. Check it out and let me know what you think. Pretty sure this was the best looking game to come out of E3 so far.

"Big Dan" McCormick is the sole survivor of a bus crash into hydro lines. 5 others were electrocuted. Intrigued by Dan's apparent immunity to electricity, Dr. John Lawrence, distinguished elector-biologist, asks Dan to visit him at his laboratory, where Lawrence's assistant, Dr. Paul Rigas, is secretly conducting experiments to prove his theory that human life can be motivated and controlled by electricity. Rigas persuades Dan to submit to tests, where Dan absorbs increasingly powerful charges until he develops an amazing degree of immunity, and becomes a walking hulk of electricity. Rigas does a final test of pouring a tremendous charge into Dan's body, and Dan becomes superhuman and his body glows. He is also a robot that is controlled by Rigas. When Lawrence tries to stop the exper…
