Am I the only one person who thinks Spring is a depressing time for horror? I keep watching stuff with the intention of reviewing it, but purchase no muster to do so after the mediocrity ends. The past few attempts have been THE TELLING, THE BROKEN and RULE NUMBER ONE; all three of which I assumed would be fun to write about. I was wrong.
The same thing happened to me last year. I wrote about the baneful Horror Rut on March 28th ’08. Come to think of it, 2009’s rut must have begun around the same time. I’m two weeks into it now and I just cannot get over the hump. I’ve got a lot on my plate, what with the wedding six weeks away and then the move to Austin, but those are mere correlations, not causation. After all, this is the second year.
Last year I asked for a list of classics to dig me out, but such a list won’t help much, I fear. I just can’t focus this time of the year. I’m not sure why. Too many shiny things in the world.
