Another One Bites The Dust

How many small press markets have you seen come and go? Too many I’m willing to bet. Well, Murky Depths can be added the list. Issue #18 is the last one, folks. The print magazine may have folded, but the Murky Depths team still plan on publishing paperback books and graphic novels under their House…


The Screaming Skull

I’ve just been reading one of F. Marion Crawford’s short stories. It’s called The Screaming Skull and at the end of the story there is a note that says that it was inspired by the real life legend of the screaming skull at Bettiscombe Manor. I have been familiar with the legend for many years…

I was just surfing a few Bela Lugosi links and I found this photograph of him from back in 1955: It was taken just before he was voluntarily committed to the state hospital for treatment as a chronic user of narcotics for sedation. I followed a few more links and found some rare footage of…


Watch Online: The Ray Bradbury Theatre – Marionettes, Inc

The Ray Bradbury Theatre ran for six seasons between 1985 and 1992. There were a total of sixty-five episodes and I never saw a single one of them.

A Long Time Coming

Today I received an email informing me that one of my short horror stories has been rejected. I just updated my database and realized that I submitted the story in December 2009. It seems a long time to have to wait for a rejection, but I’ve had stories that have been out for two or…

Rebello’s book tracks how Hitchcock, already a very successful director, decided to make a horror film. Unfortunately none of the studios liked the idea. Not…


Grave Tales The Movie

Do you remember Brian Murphy? He of George and Mildred fame? Well he’s starring as a gravedigger in a new horror anthology called Grave Tales. I’ve just been watching the trailer on the Grave Tales website and it looks pretty darn good to me. The basic idea is that a young genealogist is having a…


DRACULA TO GET 3D TREATMENT

Dracula has been made, remade, rehashed and resurrected so many times that it can be hard to keep track of it. Now Stoker’s classic tale is destined to get a whole new look, but you will need a special pair of glasses to see it. Yep! Dracula 3D is on its way. Dario Argento will…
