I've been meaning to start posting again for some time now, and I can think of no better reason than to post some musings on the horror flicks I'm watching this month with friends. The brainchild behind this ghoulish endeavor is none other than my friend, colleague, and trivia team member (shout out to team Allen Bader Ginsburg), Charlie Riccardelli, whose film knowledge is unparalleled.
For me, and interest in poetry and an interest in popular culture are not mutually exclusive pursuits. A poem of mine that I'm currently sending out called "The Horror" was born out of my desire to move beyond merely laughing at horror movie tropes to try to figure out why they exist and what they suggest not about the industry, but about us. So I think this stuff belongs on my site, too.
Needless to say, there will be spoilers ahead.
Our first film was 2015 Australian flick Wyrmwood: On the Road.
