William Wilde and the Necrosed Launched today!

The story is set in the 1980s and is a classic coming of age story.

All William Wilde wants is to get through his final year of high school, survive the terrible cafeteria food, and avoid the bullies. But then comes a beautiful, new girl who seems to know too much about him; friends who’ve all along lied to him, and magic that he never wanted. Toss in a zombie-like Terminator out to kill William, and you have something like Stranger Things mixed with Percy Jackson.

As with The Castes and the OutCastes, Nick Podehl does the narration.

Cloverfield Paradox

I just finished watching Cloverfield Paradox on Netflix. I liked it, but I’m a bit tired of the genre mashup aspects. I want a straight ahead monster movie. This one is like 10 Cloverfield Lane, which was a sorta monster movie transplanted at the end onto what had been up to that point a tense psychological thriller. Same here. Most of the movie is a tense sci-fi disaster movie that explains how the Cloverfield monsters came to Earth, which is fine.

One thing, though: the size of the Cloverfield monster at the end . . . just how big is that thing? Or is it flying?
