FILM REVIEW: THE RITUAL

tumblr_p41s4ofG8W1r2l6qjo1_r2_1280

I saw an interesting film on Netflix called The Ritual. It is about four friends who venture into a forest in Sweden only to run into a group of pagans who worship a horrendous monster. This creature is said to be a bastard child of Loki, Norse God of Mischief. It is one of the most grotesque monsters I have ever seen, resembling a giant demonic elk and it had the most unusual head I have ever gazed upon (which is in the picture above). I must say that this is one of the most unholy interpretations of my ancestors’ gods I have ever seen. I loved the camaraderie the characters displayed in the film and the suspense was killing me. Because of its size and appearance, Loki’s bastard blended in with the trees, which leaves you constantly on the lookout and wondering where and when it will strike next. Overall, this was a scary and suspenseful film that leaves you at the edge of your seat.

POSSIBLE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE STORY

Walking-dead

I had an interesting idea for a potential story and it involves a zombie apocalypse. When my friends and I were in high school, we watched Shaun of the Dead and wondered what it would be like if we endured a zombie apocalypse. Some of the ideas we came up with were extreme, unusual, and utterly insane. I already wrote books based on our fantasy of becoming superheroes so I may write a book based on our fantasy of surviving a zombie apocalypse. What would you do if you came face-to-face with legions of undead and the world as you know it collapses instantly? Let me know what you think.

POEM: DEATH’S HARVEST

Here is one of my poems that I called “Death’s Harvest”. Enjoy:

“I float above a great hall with my trusty scythe in hand.

Below me are the pitiful mortals wasting their lives.

They party and indulge themselves in order to find

meaning, but they are only making it easier for me to

decide their ultimate fate.

 

Banquet tables welcome gluttons with plenty.

Paramours embrace one another with lustful intent.

Proud men glare at one another with envious anger.

In the corner, a fat drunk sleeps like a soft pig.

Oh, how I will enjoy claiming them!

 

With my beloved scythe, I descend upon the hall

each swing of my dark blade fulfills my harvest.

One by one, the sinners fall as their wretched souls

become absorbed by my scythe like a leech

drinking blood.

 

In moments, my task is done with all the sinners

at my skinless feet. Satisfied with the fruit of my

labor, I take my leave. Inside my scythe, the souls

of the sinners scream!”

WRITING UPDATE: NEW CHAPTERS

I have done the second chapter and started the third chapter of the second volume of my fantasy series. Also, I am almost finished with the first chapter of my horror short story. In the fantasy book, we will get a look at the new main characters as well as a broader look at the political field. In the horror short story, I am delving deeper and deeper into my interpretation of Hell, which gives me chills beyond count. I am on fire with my writing and I look forward to seeing where it will lead. I will keep you updated on any further developments.
