Thank you for reading!

There is no greater compliment for a writer than to have his/her work read. Liking something one has written is an added bonus, but writers want readers to feel something from their work. It doesn’t have to always be “I liked that!” but, yes, it does feel good. If you’ve enjoyed reading something here over the last year or so, I’m greatly appreciative for the time. I don’t just go through the motions with this site and never will. When and if I think there’s nothing left for me to offer, I’ll be done. The beauty of the what this site is about — movies, TV, creativity and art — well, I don’t think that ever has an ending.

It’s like we’re driving to somewhere we see in the distance but around every corner, there is another side road that leads somewhere unknown. That thrill of seeing something you’ve not seen before is unmatched. Together, health willing, we’ll continue this journey.

One can debate (with success, most likely) that an entertainment site like this doesn’t constitute “work” but reading and writing are something I’ve done longer than my memory of watching and enjoying movies. I’ve written some posts that I’m proud of here and others that, given the time and circumstance, I’d have fleshed out more or maybe even not posted at all. Having the time to write is a luxury my current day job affords me and for that I’m grateful, but if nobody was reading it wouldn’t be as enjoyable.

Shudder Reaches 1 Million Subscribers on September 23, 2020

Creepshow Season 2 is filming now for future release on Shudder, slated most likely for 2021

Congratulations to AMC’s Shudder for hitting the seven figure subscriber milestone.

“The addition of original series and movies turbocharged our growth and turned Shudder into a must-have service for anyone interested in great horror, thriller or supernatural entertainment,” said Miguel Penella, president of SVOD at AMC Networks, in a statement. “Our relentless focus on quality programming, innovative content and finding the best up-and-coming creators has enabled Shudder to break out in the crowded world of subscription services.

AMC’s Horror Streaming Service ‘Shudder’ Reaches 1M Subscribers | Cord Cutters News

This news comes in the middle of their 61 days of Halloween horror event that kicked off on September 1 and runs through Halloween 2020.

Being a huge horror fan myself, Kara finds it one of her least favorite genres, this news is even better. Have said it before that Shudder is a must have for hardcore horror fans. Even if you subscribe, binge what you want for a couple months, leave and then come back and do it again a few months later. Whatever your horror watching strategy, at some point Shudder should be part of it.

And nobody is paying me to say that, nor are there any affiliate links to the site here. We’re subscribers and horror fans, that’s all, passing along something good.

As far as niche streaming sites go, this one is one of my most favorites. DC Universe used to be, but they are getting out of the streaming movie and TV show business, going comic books only and their video content is moving to HBO Max.

Anything you’d like to see playing on Shudder? They do have some modern horror films, but their sweet spot is titles that are older and newer originals, like recently I watched Nicolas Cage in Color Out Of Space ⭐️⭐️⭐️½ (recommended).
