Countdown to Halloween: Hidden Gems in the Dark by Avon Gale

countdown-with-bob

Hello! My name is Avon Gale, and I’m here today to tell you about a few of my favorite horror movies. As a horror fan, my favorite films tend to be atmospheric, supernatural movies but I’m a sucker for found-footage films, anything having to do with demons, and a good twist-on-a-classic. I think I’ve probably watched the entirety of Netflix’s horror collection, and I’ve given more than a few Amazon Prime horror films (or, more appropriately, “films”) a chance. I’d say about 35% of what I watch is enjoyable, and of that, 10% is fantastic.

So, while I have a lot of well-known favorite horror movies – my favorite being The Haunting (the old version, that remake is dead to me :|) – including classics like The Shining, The Exorcist, etc, I wanted to share a few of the gems I’ve found that you might not have heard of. They range from sci-fi horror to supernatural horror to psychological horror, but each one spooked me and I’d recommend any movie here without reservation.

Here we go!


Let Us Prey

This is a Scottish horror movie about a mysterious prisoner who shows up in a police station, and causes…things…to happen, with the other prisoners *and* the police. It’s admittedly got a few problems, but I love this film mostly for the unconventional romance (seriously, the ending. OMG. /swoons). It’s a clever little movie but please be advised – it’s *very* graphic with some heavy bloodshed. This is part slasher film and part supernatural horror, and yes, part romance. I tweeted about how romantic the ending was, in fact, and the film’s director (!) tweeted back saying very few people appreciated the romance. Leave it to a romance fan, eh? Anyway, not for the faint of heart, this one, but the ending. Gah.

Spring

This is technically creature!horror with a bit of a supernatural twist…but it’s mostly a romance. It’s got amazing dialogue that will crack you up when you least expect it, and it’s so well-done. It’s about a guy who goes to Italy following some family woes, and meets a girl with whom he falls immediately in love. But she’s more than just a girl. Seriously, this is *delightful*, okay? Just watch it and then come squee with me about how amazing it is.

 

It Follows

This is, hands down, the best horror movie I’ve seen in probably a decade. You might have heard of this one, as it got a lot of attention a few years ago. But listen – I still think about a certain scene from this movie when I wake up at night and am in the kitchen or the bathroom. It makes me shiver and dash back into my bed, so. This movie is beautifully written, gorgeously shot (there’s an awesome time-dysphoria thing going on, which lends a dreamlike, timeless quality to the film) with a simple and chilling premise. I also want to talk forever about the various interpretations and meanings, and I love the characters so much.

 

White Bear episode of Black Mirror

I highly recommend the entire Black Mirror series, which you can find on Netflix. The series features chilling tales about the dark side of technology, and while I love all of them, “White Bear” remains one of the most unsettling and terrifying things I’ve ever seen. What’s so frightening about this is how it could happen, and…ugh. I don’t want to say too much because I don’t want to ruin it, but it’s only an hour and trust me, it’ll freak you out. It’s giving me the shivers just thinking about it.  

The Atticus Institute

It’s no secret that I love anything having to do with demons and demonic possession. No matter how bad it is, I will probably watch it (ditto with found-footage films). This film has one of the most interesting takes on demonic possession that I’ve come across, and it’s filmed as a faux-documentary, which is a conceit I absolutely love.  Rather than taking a religious angle, this film is about a woman who shows up at a paranormal research institute in the 70’s, and is kept for observation for several weeks. The mockumentary-style film is set in present-day with flashbacks to the 70’s, and deals with the idea of the military attempting to weaponize a demonic entity. This movie was actually the inspiration for my upcoming short story in the “All in Fear” anthology by Open Ink Press, thanks to a quick interview with an Air Force soldier that planted a seed in my demon-loving brain. Really unique take on a favorite horror trope.

The Invitation

This is a wonderful example of how horror doesn’t have to rely on ghosts or masked madmen to be effective. This one’s a psychological thriller in some ways, about a group of people at a dinner party who have intertwined – and complicated, uncomfortable — pasts. There’s a masterful build-up of tension in this movie, and you’re never quite sure what’s happening or if things are as sinister as they appear. This is not a movie that is going to appeal to everyone. If you’re not into the slow-build thing, you might want to skip this one – but if you give it a chance, trust me, the payoff is more than worth it. Thinking about the last scene of this movie gives me chills. 

The Witch

A very slow-burn horror set in Colonial America, this movie is incredible. It’s brilliantly written and acted, and deals with a family that’s been ostracized from their community. It’s another one that relies on tension and dread to be effective, and some people might hate the period-appropriate dialogue but I absolutely loved it. A perfect atmospheric horror film for a cold night. Unique and original and just all around a wonderful addition to the genre. 

Arq

This is a Netflix Original that just came out, and it’s about a machine that causes a time loop, an estranged couple, and a dystopian future. If I say any more than that, I’ll ruin it. Brilliantly acted film with an obvious low budget, this is horror sci-fi at its best – a great mix of tension and interpersonal drama that moves the plot along instead of stymying it. The action starts off right at the beginning and doesn’t let up, and I loved this movie for not forcing the audience to try and understand why the characters are in the situation they’re in. It just throws you in with them, and lets you figure out as they do. Really brilliant.

The Final Girls

So, I love horror but one thing I could do without? The “woman in peril” plotline. Not that I can’t appreciate it when it’s done well, and I know that most survivors in horror movies tend to *be* women, but I especially can’t stand it when the woman has to be pregnant just to “make it more horrible” that she’s in danger. Anyway, tangent aside, this movie is a highly-stylized production that reminded me a bit of a comic book. It’s beautifully filmed, with these deep bright colors and contrasting shadows, and it’s unclear what time period it’s set in. The premise is a girl who has been trained to take on a group of murderous, privileged young men who like to hunt and kill women. Watching the main character kick ass is so satisfying, I can’t even. This movie might not appeal to many *because* it’s so stylized, but it’s different and unique and I found it really enjoyable.

(note – there are two movies with this name, and honestly, I recommend both of them. This one is the shorter of the two, and was my favorite simply because it was so different from anything I’ve ever seen.)

 

Muirhouse

This movie has a terrible rating on IMDB, and it infuriates me because I thought it was awesome. It’s a slow-burn horror movie as well, about a paranormal investigator who spends some time – not even a night – in the haunted Muir House. Look, this isn’t the movie for you if you want jump scares galore or things explained and resolved. The majority of the movie is this one guy in the house, in which strange things keep happening and freaking him out. This is a supernatural movie that does amazing things with tension and dread, and one of the better found-footage films I’ve seen in the last few years.  

The Ceremony

I’m putting this movie on here because it is absolutely one of my favorites, and I can’t find it anywhere. I’ve searched and searched, and it’s like this damn thing no longer exists. It’s from 2008 and it’s about a guy trapped in his house while sinister things happen…and other than that, I can’t really explain it without giving anything away. All I can tell you is that I’m SO MAD I can’t find this, because I was only able to watch it twice and now it appears to have vanished (there are other films with this title, but this one is from 2008 and there’s a single trailer on YouTube that is terrible and not representative of this film at all). The film is about as low-budget as you get, featuring one actor in a perfectly normal college-ish duplex, stuck inside with the remnants of his absent-roommate’s class project. So good.

IF ANYONE FINDS ME THIS MOVIE I WILL SERIOUSLY SHOWER YOU WITH GRATITUDE, BOOKS, WHATEVER YOU WANT. I’m so enamored of it that I have a half-written story inspired by it, and I can’t work on the story because every time I try, I just get angry that I can’t find the movie >:( One day, ONE DAY, this will be available again and you’ll hear me yelling from Missouri.

A couple others to check out if you’re so inclined:

Housebound, They Look Like People, The Taking of Deborah Logan, All The Boys Love Mandy Lane (the most brilliant take on a slasher film ever), The Dark, Grave Encounters, The Houses October Built, Ava’s Obsessions (hilarious horror-comedy), Rows,  Hush, You’re Next, and Lake Mungo.

Honestly, I can go on and on, so if you want to talk horror, please do! Hit me up on Twitter at @avongalewrites anytime!!

Hockey Double Shot: Rookie Move by Sarina Bowen and Empty Net by Avon Gale

Hey guys, it’s almost hockey season! I say that with excitement, despite the fact that I’m a Bruins fan and they’re probably going to be terrible this year. Sigh. Anyway, if you just can’t wait until October, or if you just like a good sports romance for the romance, not the sport, here are two hockey romances you can read now!

divider-horizon-line

rookie moveRookie Move by Sarina Bowen

This book features Leo Trevi, a pro hockey players with the Brooklyn Bruisers, and his high school girlfriend Georgia. They were each other’s’ first love, and nobody else has measured up since. Leo is traded to the Bruisers, where he has to come face to face with Georgia (and her father, the coach, who hates Leo’s guts) and all they left behind. Georgia is dealing with trying to keep up after a new promotion and doesn’t have time to be distracted by the long-lost love of her life.

One thing I found refreshing about this book is that, while the event that pulls Leo and Georgia apart is her rape in senior year of high school, the rape itself is never described. The aftermath of Georgia’s assault has echoed through both of their lives, but it’s never dramatized or treated as the only defining event in her life. It’s a choice you don’t often see, and I appreciated the choice the author made.

As always, Bowen does a fantastic job weaving in hockey details with the romance. I also really liked that, even though this was a workplace romance, both Leo and Georgia take their jobs very seriously. They both come to the decision individually that their jobs are more important than the romance, and that never really wavers. They both take pride in their work and are ambitious — there is never the sense that her job is less important than his because she works in PR rather than being on the ice, and her personal ambitions are central to the plot. (I loved the Mark Zuckerberg-like character who owns the team, and I really hope he gets his own book.)

This was a really hard book for me to review. Sarina Bowen is an author who knows how to hit my id hard with tropes and relationships I love. She writes interesting, vibrant characters who have complicated histories, and she should be a  very uncomplicated auto-buy for me. That said, she takes a weird turn into misogyny in almost every book. It’s usually brief, but it’s like, “gorgeous ride, beautiful scenery, CAR CRASH, ok, back on the road, gorgeous ride, beautiful scenery..” She has written an incredibly powerful book about slut-shaming (The Shameless Hour) and then, in other books, she has female characters roll their eyes at other female characters for being shallow or “puck bunnies.” There’s always a moment where the heroine is “not like those other girls” and it really grates.

I think it grates so much because I otherwise love her damn books. I know that when I pick up a Sarina Bowen book, I won’t be able to put it down until it’s done. I know that she’ll have characters that feel full and real. I just wish she would never write anyone’s ex-girlfriend ever again.

divider-horizon-lineempty_net_final-1Empty Net by Avon Gale

Avon Gale’s Scoring Chances series shows a different side of professional hockey: the less-glamorous, lower-paying minor hockey world of the ECHL. The first three books can be read as standalones, but Empty Net doesn’t make nearly as much sense if you haven’t read the third book (Power Play) as it continues pretty directly from the end of that.

This book is all about the drama! Like Sarina Bowen’s book, I couldn’t put it down once I started. However, I definitely think this is going to be the kind of book people will either love or hate. It’s very much a soap opera, with enemies-to-lovers, eating disorders and abusive parents and a hero with a past as a prostitute. Oh, and did I mention that one of the heroes is a virgin? This book is packed with so many tropes, it’s bound to be somebody’s catnip.

The things I loved about this book: good hockey and good therapy. Gale does a great job writing the game, showing a side of pro sports that’s rarely depicted anywhere…the life of struggling minor-league player. She also does a terrific job writing Laurent’s therapist and depicts therapy sessions fairly realistically. Therapy done badly is a huge pet peeve of mine.

The relationship is sweet and mutually supportive, but the book is ultimately all about Laurent and his journey, discovering his sexuality, (he’s demisexual and a virgin) gettiIfng healthy, and freeing himself from his father. Gale’s books deal with difficult subjects but somehow always feel safe, in the way where you know everything is going to be all good at the end.

If you’re in the mood for deep dive into the trope deep end, this is an excellently-written book for you.

What Are We Reading May 22nd Edition – What Erin’s Reading

I’ll be straight with you, fellow readers: If I were going to honestly represent what I’ve been reading this week, it would consist of all seven of Ruby Dixon’s Ice Planet Barbarians books, plus the two “slice of life” short stories. These short stories include the accurately named Ice Ice Babies, about life after giving birth to alien baby twins named Anna and Elsa. I fucking love these books. I’ve been stressed, and this level of silly fun was exactly what I needed right now.

So just in case blue aliens aren’t your bag, here are three books I’ve read and enjoyed in the past few weeks!

Authors Interviewing Authors: Avon Gale Interviews Piper Vaughn

March Authors Interviewing Authors is here and with it, we get a very special treat: the first ever in person edition! Avon Gale recently caught up with Piper Vaughn in her home to discuss Piper’s plans for future books, Young Adult Fiction from the 90s (shout out to Judith’s fave, LJ SMITH!), and their shared passion, hockey!

divider-horizon-line

Avon: Hello! I’m Avon Gale and I’m so excited to interview Piper Vaughn today, especially because I am sitting next to her on her couch while we watch some hockey. So thank you for having me, both as a house guest and as an interviewer!!

Piper: Thanks for coming! I’m thrilled to have you here watching hockey with me, and I’m excited to get to the interview. 😀

Avon: So, since I am sitting here in your house I’m able to look at your bookshelves! I already noticed that you and I share a love for an Elizabeth Lowell series (and are both sad that she never wrote Eric’s story!), but you have quite an eclectic collection as a reader. As a writer, what other genres are you interested in writing?

FullSizeRender (1)

Piper: Outside of M/M, I’m most interested in writing mainstream YA, though I’ll probably stay true to my roots and keep it LGBT related. I have plans for a couple of contemporary, coming-of-age stories, and I also have a broad outline for a potential urban fantasy series.

Avon: What kind of YA books were your favorite when you were younger?

Piper: I was a big fan of LJ Smith. Hello, “Vampire Diaries,” “The Secret Circle,” “The Forbidden Game,” “Dark Visions” and the “Night World” books. I read everything she wrote. I also loved RL Stine, and Christopher Pike. Then there were the Sweet Valley High books, and this series called “Love Stories,” which were basically category romances for young adults. My little romance-loving heart adored those books. I consumed them like candy! My favorite was “Sharing Sam” by Katherine Applegate.  

Avon: I loved Sweet Valley High! I’m pretty sure I shipped Jessica/Lila before I knew what that meant. Have you gone back and re-read any of your favorite YA series recently? I’d totally be down for a Christopher Pike re-read bonanza if you want. Do you see influences of your favorite YA or romance series in your own writing, and if so, tell us about it!

Piper: Oh, that might be fun! I haven’t read a Christopher Pike book since high school. I wonder if I’d still enjoy them. As for influences, I think if I ever write the YA urban fantasy series, it might be influenced by what I loved about LJ Smith–strong, kickass heroines I both envied and had crushes on and heroes I wished I could keep for myself. But I don’t know that there’s any one author or series in particular that I can say influenced my own style. I certainly admire plenty of authors and love many series, but I just do my own thing and hope people enjoy it. 🙂

Avon: You have a lot of historical romance novels on your shelves, but they’re primarily het. And you write mostly M/M contemporary. What interested you about that genre in M/M that didn’t capture your attention as a reader of M/F?

FullSizeRender

Piper: Yeah, I never read very much M/F contemporary. Some, but not nearly as much as historicals or paranormal books. I think my lack of interest in M/F contemporary came from an inability to relate to the heroines, to be honest. I rarely saw myself in or felt connected to most of these modern-day heroines, and that lessened my enjoyment. That expectation wasn’t there when I read historicals or paranormal. I didn’t expect those heroines to be relatable, if that makes sense. My day-to-day life isn’t filled with werewolves or dance cards and the censure of the ton. I always connected to the heroes of contemporary instead–and I think that’s why when I discovered M/M as an actual book genre (I’d been reading it online in fanfic for years before that), I was drawn to contemporary. I get along well with men, and I’ve always been a tomboy. I think my brain is male (and, trust me, I don’t say that lightly), and I feel like the power dynamic in M/M contemporary is much more equal than it is in M/F. Then when I started writing original stories in M/M, I found that 90% of my ideas were contemporary, and I just rolled with it.

Avon: Thank you for sharing all of that! I always like hearing how authors find their genre and their interests. Speaking of interests, we started talking not only because of our shared M/M love (and can I take this opportunity to share with everyone how absolutely welcoming and supportive Piper is to new authors? <3) — and our love for hockey! We’re both sitting here talking about points and standings and the playoffs, but as you’ve mentioned, this is your first playoff season being invested in the outcome (and I’m sorry because sports exists to break your heart 🙁 ). What got you into hockey, and led to the point where you’re muttering at the Wild about closing out this game in OT?

Piper: And now that the Wild have won in a shootout (woot!), I can answer this question. 😛 I actually got into hockey through Tumblr. I follow a few hockey fans and had seen their reblogs about certain teams and players. I started to get really invested in Jonathan Toews and some of the other Blackhawks and started wanting to watch games and possibly write a hockey romance. Because my husband is a longtime hockey fan (he loves the Red Wings), he encouraged this idea. I started watching with him late last season, and the rest, as they say, is history. It’s now become an obsession. And sometimes loving hockey does feel like suffering. You’re right about the heartbreak. Oi. But I do love it so.

Avon: That’s the great thing about writing hockey romance — you can give your characters, and their teams, a happy ending! What about hockey do you think makes it a good focus for a romance novel?

Piper: I love the way hockey teams become a family of a kind. I love the nicknames and the intensity of the sport and the potential for rivalries–and how for a lot of players, that rivalry can end once they step off the ice and they can actually be friends. And, well, by now I think hockey is the greatest sport of all time, and if I want to read–or write–about any sport, this is going to be it. Hockey has become one of my happy places, and so is romance. Of course I’d want to combine the two. 🙂

Avon: I love that too, about the teams, and especially how even beyond the team name on the front of the jersey, hockey players, coaches, staff, fans….it’s all a family! It’s so much fun to meet and talk to other fans (even if you end up having to change your FB and Twitter icon to a hated team logo because of a bet *coughs*) who share a similar passion for the sport. As an author in M/M, would you say that is a similar sort of feeling?

Piper: Yes! I’ve mentioned this to you before, but when I first discovered M/M romance as a book genre, nearly 8 years after I started reading slash/fanfic online, I felt like I’d found my people. The M/M romance group was only about 200 members, maybe, when I joined. There were so few of us reading and writing at the time, about 6+ years ago, and people were so welcoming. I felt like I’d finally found where I belong–as a person and as an author–and I’ve made some of my best friends in this community.

Avon: As an author and a reader, what are your hopes for the genre in the larger scheme of the romance community?

Piper: Well, more than anything, I’d love to see it get more visibility. I’d love to see more of our (as in the collective M/M romance writing community) books hitting mainstream bestseller lists and being reviewed on the bigger blogs and in magazines. I’d love for it not to feel like a subgenre of the broader heterosexual romance community. I want it to be considered romance, period, and I’d love to see more of our books in my brick-and-mortar stores.

Avon: If you had a shelf for your favorite M/M romances, give us a sample of what you’d find on it!

Piper: Sure! I’m a huge fan of Jordan Castillo Price, so of course the “PsyCop” series would be on it. I love Andrea Speed’s “Infected” series, though I’d call it M/M urban fantasy with romantic subplots instead of M/M romance. “Bone Rider” by J. Fally would definitely be there, too, along with “Brothers of the Wild North Sea” by Harper Fox and Marie Sexton’s “Coda” series, JL Langley’s “With or Without” series and “Speechless” by Kim Fielding. There’d also be a few Megan Derr titles on there and plenty of others! I have lots of favorites.

Avon: What advice would you give to new authors who are just venturing forth into the world of publishing, no matter what genre?

Piper: I’d tell them to write what they enjoy. Sometimes we can get caught up in the market and what the next big trend is–and I’m not saying it’s not important to keep an eye on trends–but I feel like if you’re not writing what you love, you run the risk of burning yourself out and the whole process can lose its fun. I think it’s more important to love what you’re doing than, say, forcing yourself to write about firemen if you don’t actually have any interest in writing books about first responders. Write what calls to you and find the publisher best suited to help you polish and promote that book. That’s probably my best advice, aside from the whole practice makes perfect thing. 😉

Avon: And finally, who’s your prediction for the Stanley Cup matchup and eventual winner? The romantic version, or the more mundane RL one 😉

Piper: Well, if the Hawks get their act together, I can see them being in the championship again and possibly destroying the Washington Capitals to win the Stanley Cup. In the more romantic version, I think it’d be amazing to see it come down to the Boston Bruins against the Minnesota Wild. I’d be happy if the Bruins won, because you did sway me over to their side, but I’d be so thrilled to see the Wild win. I do love those boys, and not to be disloyal to my Blackhawks, but it’s not like they haven’t won a few times in the last 6 years. I mean, I do have a tube of melted 2015 Stanley Cup ice sitting on my bookshelf from their win last year, and I did watch that game. So, yeah. I think it’d be fun to see the Wild take the Cup. 🙂

Avon: There is only one thing in this that I can support, that being the Boston Bruins in the finals. Since, as we all know, I hate your hockey team. But luckily, our rivalry is a fun part of our friendship (and if you weren’t such a great friend, I’d toss that bottle of Stanley Cup ice into traffic. What?) and hockey fans are family no matter the team.

Thanks Piper!! I had so much fun interviewing you, watching hockey and finding out how to tweet Elizabeth Lowell and tell her we need her to write a book about Eric. Let’s do this again sometime! 😀

She grew up in Chicago, in an ethnically diverse neighborhood, and loves to put faces and characters of every ethnicity in her stories, so her fictional worlds are as colorful as the real one. Above all, she believes that everyone needs a little true love in their life…even if it’s only in a book.
