My day was more difficult. I woke up with a headache again and my body seems to be fighting this change. This is something I knew would come but I have to be strong enough to keep going. I take the medicine the hospital gave to help with my anxiety. I cannot take the medicine for tremors while working. I hope I do not have another episode. Luckily, I am able to manage through work. The whispers are fading but I can still hear them. I confess to my boss what I am enduring. He is incapable of understanding the depths of my problem but he tells me that if I need anything to let him know. I am grateful.

As the night progresses he begins hearing noises coming from the corridors that make him believe someone is with him down there. He attempts to get advice from his supervisor but like most stories like this, the noises go away once the supervisor arrives. Finally, our main character decides to take it upon himself to identify the source of the sounds and comes face-to-face with something otherworldly. Most of the story is predictable and I think we have all seen stories similar to this one at some point. Night watchmen seem to be popular targets of the strange and unexplainable. In Extremis is no …Read more >
I have found myself watching a lot of short horror films that have been posted to YouTube. I have noticed that there are a lot of talented film makers that are touching on elements we write about a lot. I thought I would take the time to review a few over the next few days to give you folks an idea of what to expect if you go searching.
Plot: You are immediately placed in a cozy family setting during Christmas. Everyone appears normal in the first scene but you soon realize something is wrong. You get hints of what it might be as the story progresses but you will be pleasantly surprised by the outcome. I was so sure I knew how the end would play out but I loved the twist and I think you will too.
Acting: The mother plays it straight and I ca…

I have always enjoyed reading post-apocalytpic stories. I have ran across one or two during my time here but I was hoping if any of my fellow members could direct me to some titles that are of these genre?Read more >
