Sinister tells the tale of a true crime writer, Ellison Oswalth (Ethan Hawke), researching a series of seemingly unrelated serial murders that have spanned decades. Of course he moves into the house where one of the murders took place. Of course. What better way to get “into” a story than by secretly moving your entire family into a house where a family of four was murdered; strung up and hung from the old tree in the backyard. (more…)

The Beasthouse puremassacre

The Beasthouse. 1986.

Author Gorman Hardy is hot on the trail of another bestseller and if half what’s said about Malcasa Point is true, he’s bound to make a killing. Petite and pretty Tyler and sexy Nora visit Malcasa full of expectation. But Malcasa Point is a place of pain, bestiality and death in The Beast House. (Amazon)

Just finished The Beasthouse this afternoon. Having completed The Cellar two days ago, the story of Malcasa Point and the legend of Beasthouse is still fresh in my memory, burned into my neurons permanently. I breezed through the book rather quickly hoping for more bloody carnage along the way but was a little disappointed to find that Beasthouse was a little tame compared to The Cellar. I thoroughly enjoyed the read though; the characters and their various relationships grew on me and I found myself emotionally invested in their struggles (weird I know, I usually just want most people to meet a horrible end in the most bloody and disgusting way possible). I especially despised the shock author Gorman Hardy, what a complete sleazeball a#$hole, I truly wanted him to die! Anyway while Beasthouse was a less brutal (I thought so) entry in the series, it was nonetheless an entertaining read and shed some more light on the sick and perverse legends surrounding Malcasa Point and that terrible house. I will be jumping right to the third book in the series….The Midnight Tour. The Beasthouse @ Amazon.
