Slashers are one of the most popular horror genres of all time. It would take me hours to count how many slasher franchises/movies have been made in movies alone. Famous slashers are basically household names. But what about the people who survive them? The Final Girls, as TV Tropes calls them. Some of them live happily ever after. Some of them are forced to try to survive sequels. And one of them becomes a hunter of hunters. This is Hack Slash.
Time Travel, the plot line no Sci-Fi story has ever been able to get right in the history of time. Seriously, even the good time travel movies can’t keep their continuities straight. But, Stephen King is arguably one of the most influential writers of our generation. Surely, he can get it right… Right? This is 11/22/63.
So, this particular post is going to be a mixed bag. First, we’ll start off with some quick-fire reviews of stuff I’ve been wanting to talk about recently, then I’ll talk about why I’ve been so sporadic with posts this year. Alright, quick-fire reviews!
Wouldn’t it be awesome to turn into any animal you wanted? To fly like an eagle? To swim like a fish? To run like a cheetah? It would be fun, sure. But what if those powers came with hefty price? What is that price? Stopping an invasion of mind controlling slugs. This is Animorphs.
Today’s book is a big blast from the past for me. It’s a book that I would often see in my school’s library but often didn’t have the courage to pick up and read myself. When I DID pick it up, all I would have to do is flip through it and see the strange, grotesque, disturbing pictures and I would put it right back down again. I considered it almost serendipitous when I discovered it cheap recently in a used book store. Upon seeing that infamous cover, I knew I just had to buy and read Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.
“I am my own worst enemy.” This is a saying that has been said by a lot of people. Heck, it’s a sentiment I’ve felt about myself a few times. Now that Deadpool has killed every hero and villain from both his own universe and the literary universe, who else could there be left to kill? Himself, of course! And for Deadpool, as everyone knows, there’s no kill like overkill! So it’s Deadpool’s mission to kill every alternate version of himself he can find. And it’s also Deadpool’s job to put a stop to all the killing. Confused? Good! This is Deadpool Kills Deadpool.
There are a number of literary classics that I have not read either because I haven’t gotten to them yet or because I never plan to. Moby Dick, Little Women, Tom Sawyer, a whole slew of books that probably still appear on school reading lists to this day, all unread by me. Well, luckily, I don’t need to read those books anymore. This is because Deadpool is traveling through the Ideaverse, where all these books originate, and killing off all your favorite characters one by one. This is Deadpool Killustrated.
