FRAILTY is still one of my favorite horror movies, and I’m posting it in case you haven’t heard of it. The film tells the story of a father (Bill Paxton) who tells his two young sons that he had a vision from God that demons walk among us, and God wants him to kill them. The boys find themselves trapped in a nightmare of murder. Is their dad crazy, or has he been chosen? Also stars Matthew McConaughey and Powers Boothe. It’s a brilliant horror film, check it out.
Paul Mannering, author of TANKBREAD, reviewed THE END OF THE ROAD, my 8,000-word short story published by Permuted Press and available for eReader, saying, “Writers like, King, Lansdale and DiLouie invite us to view America through a glass smeared with dirt, blood and the mist of our own primal fear. With THE END OF THE ROAD … DiLouie gives us something entirely eerie.”

Some weirdness for your Wednesday.
LATE FOR MEETING
GOING TO THE STORE
The trailer for PERFECT SENSE had me fooled. The basic story is about a chef (Ewan McGregor) and an epidemiologist (Eva Green) who meet and fall in love just as a strange pandemic begins–a disease that robs people of their senses one by one over time, each loss preceded by a bout of emotion–loss, existential despair, intense rage, joy. The trailer makes the film appear to be a generic love story, and it is (some may even find it a bit sappy at times), but it’s so much more than that. It’s filled with bittersweet, heartfelt moments (and occasional montages) about how life soldiers on in the face of adversity, and how humans enjoy the world through every sense they have. The end of the world is accepted with something like grace. As an apocalyptic film, it’s one of the best out there, in my view.
Panini Books (Eclipse) has published THE KILLING FLOOR in French. C’est bon!
