Re: Guillermo del Toro's The Strain on FX (reply)

Just about anyone who frequents this board is likely to enjoy the book I just finished: "Alive! A Valentino Mystery." The title character is a film preservation scholar, a sort of private eye of lost films, who stumbles into a murder...

Re: Eerie Publications Magazines (reply)

Re: THE VAMPIRE AND THE BALLERINA (reply)

I saw this one for the first time last night, via Amazon's streaming video service. I enjoyed it, although I found it rather incomprehensible plotwise, and unfortunately setbound. Still, Valerie Leon is stunning, and James Villiers is a...
