Dreadtime Stories: Christopher Golden’s Runaway

Published

on

If you’re not familiar with the horrifically fantastical works of Christopher Golden you, my friend, are missing out.

Neither a horror author nor a fantasy novelist, Golden is one of those rare writers who can straddle both genres with ease, blending them in such a way that where one starts and the other ends is impossible to define. Through his Shadow Saga series, to Strangewood, Straight on Till Morning and, most recently, Baltimore or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire (review), just to name a few, there’s not much the man hasn’t done in his relatively short career.

Christopher Golden's Dreadtime Story!

We asked all the authors who did a Dreadtime Story to read a tale that they really felt was most indicative of their style as an author, and Golden hit it out of the park when he choose to do “Runaway”. It’s one of the longer of the stories we’ve have up to date, but its doubtful you’re going to notice; it’s just that good.

    Zac Efron Looks Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Ted Bundy

    Published

    on

    We told you a while back that Zac Efron would be assuming the role of charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger’s new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (that title is a wondrous mouthful); and today Efron himself took to Twitter to share the first image of himself as Bundy. Check it out!

    Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

    Principal photography began back in October 2017.

    Make a Date With The Devil and Father Amorth

    Published

    on

    Well, that headline’s not entirely accurate… you wouldn’t want to be a third wheel now, would you? What we’re talking about here is William Friedkin’s new documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. In it Friedkin witnesses first-hand the work of the Vatican’s in-house exorcist; and if that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will!

    Deadline is reporting today that we can expect to see the flick sometime this spring in theaters via The Orchard.

    Known as the “Dean of Exorcists,” Father Amorth (who turned 92 not so long ago) has performed thousands of exorcism rituals to rid evil from the human body.

    In the early 1970s when I directed The Exorcist, I had not witnessed an exorcism; but I wondered how close I had come to portraying reality,” Friedkin tells the site. “I had been curious to meet Father Amorth for many years; and when he granted permission to meet and film him in Rome last May, it was the opportunity to complete the circle and see how close that film came to reality.
