I guarantee no one noticed – and chances are fair no one cares – but 365 moons ago, this site was loosed upon the intarweb. I, Peter Hall, who holds your brave, youthful, trembling hands through the grown up’s world of horror films, televisions and writings, managed to get a ’handful of stuff’ done.
Magic, like unicorns, typically shouldn’t be exposed to the blinding rays of science, theory and quantification, but for those playing at home, the following ‘handfull of stuff’ could all be found within HorrorsNotDead.com’s first year’s worth of diapers:
So what does this all mean? It means that the bar is set pretty low for ’07, so topping it all won’t be all that much of a challenge. I’ve got plans for the site. Don’t walk out the door yet, the band is gonna make it!
I’m going to try to write, at least, 10 reviews a month. I don’t think - and this isn’t another moment of self-deprecation, the numbers just aren’t there – that anyone actually reads the Short Stories and Scripts (granted there hasn’t been anything new in months), but I am going to try and force myself to write something new every couple weeks. A vague goal that will inevitably lead to even vague-er results, but it’s something I need to do.
But what do you, the loyal fans, have to say? Have I been doing a decent enough job? Do you want more reviews of one kind or another? Looking at the statistics, there are predominantly more Excellent or Good reviews than, say, Bad or Worthless. This isn’t because I grade on a curve, but rather that I don’t even bother to see things I know are going to be balls. So, my loaded question is, do people want me to review more of those films? Do I need to sacrifice a box office ticket to go review things like, say, today’s The Hitcher remake? Do you care what I write about? Or, perhaps more importantly, do you like how I write? Does anyone even give a fuck about the recently absent DVD guides?
Any other comments? Do you still hate me because The Descent was flat out bad? Please, let me know. I like to imagine that the numbers actually care some degree of a minimum.
Finally, later today, I’ll be posting the original script of The LAN for all to see. It is bad writing. This isn’t a warning, this is factual information for your benefit. I impress that you read it, because I do think it is endlessly entertaining – like watching a bear try to juggle -, but don’t hold it against me when you realize the person who harshly judges other horror films failed hysterically when he tried to make his own.
