31 days of horror 2021. day seven.

LIKE DOGS (2021) Well what can you say about this one. We heard you like twists so we’re taking your twist and putting a twist in it, so you can twist while you twist. Or something to that effect. It is not a particularly good movie. Something I would’ve watched at 2:30 AM after being… continues

THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI (1920) The typeface in these title cards, simply amazing: There are at least three computer font faces that take this typeface as inspiration, with varying degree of quality: Caligari Pro Dr. Caligari Caligari One thing about the Doctor: it looks like he shanked Mickey Mouse and stole his gloves. Du… continues

THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD Something I never noticed before: the intro title is the same as the intro title in John Carpenter’s remake. This title was way ahead of its time. It looked great then and it still looked awesome in the remake. And here’s some people re-creating it just like they did in… continues

WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING If you don’t have enough stress in your life and you’d like to watch people scream at each other for 90 minutes, have I got the movie for you. This is a film I just don’t ‘get’.

31 days of horror 2021. day three.

WEREWOLVES WITHIN So the elevator pitch for this movie seems to have been “It’s Northern Exposure meets Werewolves!” Throw in some Agatha Christie, add a dash of paranoia; some small-town angst, et voilà. As kooky as the premise sounds, it actually works somewhat well, shaping up into a decent mid-sized horror comedy. There’s some romantic interest… continues

CENSOR Watching this, I couldn’t help but think that surely there must be censors who love genre films and thoroughly enjoy their work. At some point though that enjoyment must turn into tedium and it devolves into yet another job. So this ended up being one of those films with a deeper meaning I just… continues

AKA Let’s watch a horror movie from the Plex server that has a decently high rating. ANTRUM (2020) The movie is framed around a lost film called ‘Antrum’, that causes the death of everyone who watches it. There’s a few introductory interviews where the subjects relate all the tragedies related to screenings of the film.… continues

Load In Modal release

One of the standard components for our WordPress themes, this has been built up over the years to become a plugin of sorts. It is used to load arbitrary WordPress page or post content into a Bootstrap 5 modal, on the fly. I like to use it to load the Privacy Policy page content. It… continues

You know you are finally learning when…

Over the years, working as a web developer, I have noticed a repeating pattern during my continuing education. For example, in my early days of working with CSS, it occurred to me I should really start keeping a library of patterns I used all the time. Something that would get me up and running as… continues

The story of a band, a letter, and a t-shirt

Swamp Terrorists are one of my favorite post-industrial / electro / aggrotech / whatever-you-want-to-call-it bands. Yes, it is a silly name; extracted from the two members’ previous bands, Strangler Of The Swamp and The Disco Terrorists. Just think, the alternative could’ve been Disco Stranglers. It is up for debate whether that is any better. I… continues
