BLOOD: ZBFbooks.com Editorial - 'The Walking Dead' Head Bashing

Apparently, some folks are pissing their pants over how 'graphic' and 'violent' that 'The Walking Dead' premiere was.
Since some folks, for whatever reason, didn't get the memo, cc, bcc, what have you, or, perhaps, missed seasons past where an old man got his head lopped off, or several zombie children were shot in the face, etc, etc, let me forward the message: It's a zombie horror-themed show. Graphic violence is part and parcel of zombie horror. Though a good story and fine characterization are fundamental to the overall enjoyment of a zombie horror piece, to be sure, I also tune in, specifically, looking for stuff that is both 'graphic' and 'violent'.
Personally, I enjoyed the episode. Since I was also one of those people who didn't open their Christmas gift early, it really hit me hard, and I enjoyed it. Like the land of the living, the land of the dead can be cruel and unforgiving.
Ironically enough, in my youth, my zombie smashing weapon of choice was a Louisville Slugger. And, incidentally, I've since changed that to flanged mace. I guess I have a special place in my curs├ęd heart for blunt weapons. Go figure.
At any rate, here's a version that might be better for those folks who were expecting something a little less cruel in a world consumed by flesh-eating zombies.

BLOOD: Lindsey Beth Goddard releases "Ashes of Another Life"

GODDARD CREATES TENSE ATMOSPHER IN POLYGAMY-THEMED THRILLER


ZBFbooks.com had a chance to reach out to Lindsey Beth Goddard to talk about her new release, the polygamy thriller 'Ashes of Another Life', available in paperback or Kindle.

Here's the synopsis, followed by the interview:

When Tara Jane Brewer leaves her polygamous community behind after her family dies in a tragic house fire, she is plagued by ghastly images of death. Hunted by a member of the church who plans to bring her home to Sweet Springs at any cost, Tara Jane must fight to keep her freedom. But everywhere she goes, she sees the charred faces of her burned family, watching her, following her, all thirty-four of them, waiting for her to come home and resume her place in the family.

ZBFbooks.com - How excited are you about your new title?

Lindsey Beth Goddard - Super excited! Ashes of Another Life is my first novella. Prior to this book, only my short stories and poetry had been published. Next up will be a novel, of course.

ZBF - Tell us a little about the story?

LBG - It’s a fictional story based on a real life cult. I’ve been told it’s both disturbing and touching at the same time.

ZBF - What’s it about?

LBG - Ashes of Another Life is the story of Tara Jane Brewer, a fourteen year old girl who escapes a dangerous cult when her family dies in a fire. Now, the prophet of her church wants her back - at any cost, and the ghosts of her dead family refuse to rest in peace.

ZBF - What made you decide to write a story with this theme?

LBG - In late 2013 and early 2014, I read a lot of non-fiction books on the topic. The seed was planted in my mind, and from there, the story grew.

ZBF - How would you describe your writing style?

LBG - Character-driven, suspenseful horror.

ZBF - What are some stories you hope to write in the future?

LBG - At some point, I’d like to write an entire book from the perspective of the monster/ villain. It’s nothing new. It’s been done a million times before, but I’m not sure how often it’s been done exceedingly well without falling into the same old cliches. Therein lies the challenge.

ZBF - Where can folks keep up with your works?

BLOOD: Movie Review - Rob Zombie's "31"

ZOMBIE BRINGS ANOTHER ARYSY-FARTSY HORROR JOYRIDE
by
Bowie V. Ibarra


Rob Zombie brings another one of his horror joyrides in 31, and you should check it out.

The plot is one of his more outrageous ideas about a group of carnies that gets kidnapped by a group of weird aristocrats who dress like their in a stage play of 'Tartuffe'.  These aristocrats hire a team of killers for the annual 31 hunt, where the killers track down and hunt the kidnapped folks in a strange underground boiler room.

The atmosphere is clastraphopic and dreary, which adds to the terror.  And as ridiculous as the set-up is, the actors are committed to the parts.

In the end, like 'Lords of Salem', the whole movie seems to be one big love note to his wife, Sheri Moon.  She is always the centerpiece of the story, and always seem to end with her in our eyes.

Anyway, while the plot is ludicrous, the story is fine and the execution by the cast and arthouse style of Zombie make it work.  Check it out.
