My retrospective on the Child's Play / Chucky series is up over at Dread Central - hope you guys enjoy it! https://www.dreadcentral.com/news/254453/chucky-30-years-childs-play/ From the Intro: "While there is plenty to appreciate in (the first Child's Play), what really appealed to my younger self was Chucky, and how unexpected he was. Even at ten I had seen creepy doll stuff before, like the titular creatures in Stuart Gordon’s Dolls, or the killer plastic doll in the Terror of the Autons episode of Doctor Who, but whereas those dolls tended to be tiny little automatons, blindly marching malevolently forward, Chucky possessed the one thing that none of them had: a personality. Sure, initially that personality was probably more that a little bit inspired by fellow foul mouthed slasher, Freddy Krueger, but it didn’t take long for Chucky, and Brad Dourif’s powerhouse performance, to become distinctive and iconic in their own right. That magic combination of Dourif’s voice and Kevin Yagher’s (and later, Tony Gardner’s) puppet magic made for a fascinating character, one who has captivated me ever since. And now, with twenty-nine years and six sequels under his belt, and as the only slasher to have escaped the dreaded continuity reset, it’s safe to say that Chucky the killer doll has more than earned his place in the slasher icon hall of fame."
RKSDooM posted a topic in All Things HorrorLooky. I wrote stuffs. And SHOCKINGLY, it's about FRIDAY THE 13TH! (and Poetic Poison helped). https://www.dreadcentral.com/news/252619/history-friday-13th-comics-part-1-topps-comics/
Hey all! I haven't been able to play FRIDAY for awhile as I've been in the hospital for the last two weeks, having been essentially gutted and then stapled back together (FUN!), but I do have some exciting news I'd like to share with my friends here in this community: As soon as I recover from the removal of my appendix and about a foot of my intestines I'm going to start regularly contributing to Dread Central, my favorite horror site on the web! It's been a real rough month or so (I was in a LOT of pain for about three weeks before I bit the bullet and went to the hospital), but this slice of positive news has really helped brighten my outlook. Anyway, I've "met" a lot of awesome folks because of this forum and this game, and I just wanted to share my good fortune with you guys :). And remember guys, girls and ghouls - even when things seem their worst, sometimes - just sometimes - a sliver of light can shine through.
