The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Already Dead

AKA: Already Dead: Joe Pitt 1

Author: Charlie Huston


Premise:
Joe Pitt is a vampire and sort of a detective. He gets hired to find a missing daughter of a wealthy couple who own a biotech firm. Then there also a new infection spreading which turns people into "shamblers" or mindless walking zombies. Surely the two things can't be related

My Take:
The novel contains large elements of pulpy detective fiction and horror. Plus it's hard to like the main character as he gets involved in a complex mystery while playing several different sides. The author sets up a believable world where vampires live amoung humans, but under the radar of most, and broken off into several groups with distinct agendas and beliefs. This is definitely a series that I will continue to read and author that I have put on the shelf for far too long

Rating: So Good
