A blog featuring the game related ramblings and ideas of a role-playing gamer since 1980. My interests include many games and gaming related topics, but my main focus will be on Open Ended Original Edition Old School Fantasy Adventure Sandbox Role Playing Games (OEOEFASRPG™) The Open-Ended Sandbox Exploration of Dungeons, Wilderness and Cities. Occasionally, other topics outside of gaming will be discussed here as well.

[A to Z] Y = Your Favorite
No trailer and no recollections about any particular movie in this entry. Just a simple question.
What is your favorite horror movie?
I have several films that are vying for the top spot. My favorite 80s slasher is Friday the 13th. My favorite found footage horror is probably Paranormal Activity. For my all-time favorite - and some people will protest that it is a true crime thriller but I am calling it a "real life horror film" - you will have to read the Z post tomorrow...

[A to Z] W = Worst
I am not discussing a film for the "W" entry but I am asking a simple question...
What is the WORST horror film you have ever seen?
I attempted to watch these movies back to back and I failed. I fell asleep several times and it took about a week to watch all three. My son gave up much quicker than I did. He still has not watched any of these movies completely to this day. Besides having sharks in each movie, these three movies share some common traits. The acting is wooden and amateurish at best. The special effects are not really that special at all. The stories are all slow and tedious. The dialogue is pure gibberish. They are all just AWFUL from start to finish. There are NO similarities to SHARKNADO and no joke to "be in on" because the joke WILL be on you if you watch these films.
I will not directly post the trailers here; I will, however, provide links to the trailers below. Be warned - just watching these trailers may be similar to reading passages from The Necronomicon!!! Be cautious if you choose to tread further and view these trailers below. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!

[A to Z] F = Fan Film
This post is different from the rest. Instead of talking about a specific film I am going to provide links to several fan films based on horror properties. I was bored one night and tried searching for fan films since I used to read fan fiction. Some of these I have watched some I have not so I have no guesses on overall quality. Maybe you will like some of these?

My son and I went to the Easter sale at Vintage Stock yesterday. While he was browsing through the selection of video games I decided to check out the book section to see if there were any role-playing items I might be interested in purchasing. The usual D&D items were there but on the bottom shelf was the Warhammer: Age of Sigmar core rules and the Stormcast Eternals battletome and they were only $14.99 each! I had always intended on buying the full rules for Age of Sigmar after getting the Storm Strike starter set last year. Yesterday was my lucky day.
