Review:  Castlevania Season One

Dracula hasn’t faired very well in modern film or televsion. The world’s most famous vampire is a genre icon with literally hundreds of adaptations throughout movie history. However, the not-so good Count hasn’t had a solid hit under his cape in years. Dracula Untold was only a modest box office success. TV adventures in the form of the tepid “Dracula” on NBC or Showtime’s critically lauded monster rally “Penny Dreadful” were both cancelled. That makes Dracula’s most succesful outing in relatively recent history Stephen Sommer’s divisive “Van Helsing.” So, it hasn’t been looking really good for the lord of the undead.
But you truly can’t keep a good vampire down. Comic book scribe Warren Ellis and “Dredd” director/producer Adi Shankar have teamed up to adapt the fan favorite horror video game series Castlevania for Netflix. While the results aren’t perfect, they hit the right notes that horror fans are hoping for.

Book Review: Tobin’s Spirit Guide (Official Ghostbusters Edition)

Ever since the original Ghostbusters film in 1984, fans of the franchise have been fascinated by the volume of supernatural lore known as Tobin’s Spirit Guide. It was mentioned twice in the movie and never shown, but for some reason it came to be known as an encyclopedia of supernatural knowledge. It was used countless times in The Real Ghostbusters animated series. Any time Egon Spengler needed information on whatever ghost or phenomenon the Ghostbusters were investigating in that particular episode, he’d look it up in Tobin’s Spirit Guide.
