“What do you usually read?” is a question I often get whenever people find out that I like reading.

Movie Review – Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

Has it really been 15 years since the first Resident Evil movie? I’m convinced Milla Jovovich is a vampire, she never seems to age. 😀 While I’m not a big fan of the series, I have watched all the films online. So when I heard that the ‘final’ instalment of the series was out, I thought it fitting to go and catch it at the … Continue reading Movie Review – Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

Book Review: World War Z – An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks

That’s the thing about King novels though: … Continue reading Book Review – Under the Dome by Stephen King

Book Review – Horror Stories by Tunku Halim

Since the dawn of time, ghost stories have been a staple of every culture in the world. Call it morbid fascination or a coping mechanism against the unknown… but we seem to like to scare the shit out of ourselves. We listen to tales of creeping, slithering things in the dead of night, even when we know it’ll keep us awake – staring at the ceiling … Continue reading Book Review – Horror Stories by Tunku Halim

Book Review – Spiral by Koji Suzuki

Remember that creepy chick who crawled out of the well, through the TV set and straight into our nightmares? The Ring wreaked havoc on an entire generation in the 1990s – kids (or at least, me) were afraid to turn on their TV sets in fear that the long haired woman with extremely clean clothes (I wonder what cleaning agent she uses?)would appear and lead … Continue reading Book Review – Spiral by Koji Suzuki
