One of the big things about horror, whether it be books or film, or the monster. A horror movie or a scary story seems weak when there isn’t some monster to fear. Sometimes we’re faced with something rational like a killer clown or serial killer, other times we’re presented with something paranormal like Dracula or Pazuzu.
With over hundreds upon hundreds of classic horror titles, and with new ideas popping up here and there, we have a huge and growing list of monsters.
But which one is your favorite and why?
Some might mention Jason Voorhees or Michael Myers. Others might mention Frankenstein’s monster or even the Wolf Man.
Some might even surprise and mention Jennifer Check, played by the very hot Megan Fox. Others might even mention the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
Let us know what horror monster us your favorite. I share mine this Friday on the Deadman’s Tome podcast.
Some of you may or may not know that I post a lot of videos on YouTube on the MrDeadmanDt channel. The channel covers news, drama, with some horror and writing trickled in. The’s not really important, though. What is important is that I recent covered a news story where a deceased man’s penis has apparently went missing?
How does that happen? How does a deceased man lose his penis?
I have no clue, but I think it would be interesting for a quick piece of flash fiction. Consider this a writing prompt challenge. Write what you think happened down below in the comments section, and it’ll be shared on a the Deadman’s Tome podcast.
Some say zombie movies are overrated and overplayed. As much as I enjoy watching brain-eaters wasted away by a barrage of gun fire, I have to admit that perhaps they’re right. But that doesn’t meant that there aren’t a few titles that standout and become our go to favorites, right?
So, I ask you, what are your favorite zombie movies and why?
After revisiting my early nerdy years as an otaku, I thought about how I could blend the horror that Deadman’s Tome publishes and anime together. Then it hit me: Camp Waifu. A very simple, straightforward writing contest that spans an intense 60 days (30 days of contest entry and 30 days of competing) where people can submit their work and then have that work read and judged by the people.
Submit a short horror story (3000 to 5000 words in length) about what happens at Camp Waifu. Is it a Friday the 13th situation? Is it a trap that leads to a young virgin strapped into a SAW device? Or does it toss away horror for more of a humorous and twisted fate?
Entry into the contest starts 8/8/2019 and ends 9/8/2019.
The stories that are entered will be posted on this site where readers can like, comment, and share.
The stories will be uploaded on the site on 9/9/2019 and for 30 days they will compete for the most views, likes and comments.
One of my favorite stories in the collection is about a fictional Mr. Deadman (need to stress that for legal reasons) that talks a basement dwelling incel into shooting up a school.
Now, hold on before you rage quit this post. The story has a twist at the end. A nice pay off that makes things nice.
But this is not the first time Deadman’s Tome has published controversial material. A few years back, we featured a story about a girl that rampaged through a school, leaving behind a trail of dead bodies.
Deadman’s Tome Freak Show asks the tough question: how much of a freak (sometimes asshole) is the subject in question. We’ve covered Marilyn Manson, DarkSydePhil, and even Japanese Game Shows. Now, it’s time to look at Jimmy Buffett
Dave Bray is a United States Navy Veteran and full-time touring musician, singer, and songwriter. While the Deadman’s Tome podcast has a strong focus on horror and writing, we do occasionally branch out to talk to other creative minds about who they are and what they do.
Talk around town is that there is a killer doll rampaging through the ghettos of Detroit. Rumor has it that the doll intends to make his way to the White House to put his soul into the president of the United States, but how does he get there, and what would Trump do as reports of his approach comes in?
