Wow, what a wild genre mash-up! "Bad Medicine" is equal parts Brett Easton Ellis, Chuck Palahniuk, and... Sam Raimi?? It's safe to say this is the only drag-queen-vs-zombies gorefest you'll read all year... or possibly ever!
The Walking Dead meets Ru-Paul’s Drag Race. An up-and-coming drag-queen faces a poorly timed zombie apocalypse. Can she wield a machete and still look good in Jimmy-Choo?
I'm a lifelong fan of classic-style weird tales, and "Arcadia" is a true homage to the genre, in the tradition of Arthur Machen's "The White People" and Robert Chambers' "The King in Yellow" - the dreadfully numinous as seen through a child's eyes.
Ten strangers must band together and find a way to defeat Suelitta before they lose what is left of their sanity.
I'm already fascinated by "Sync City." The initial vibe I'm getting is sort of a combined tribute to "Judge Dredd" and "Looper." I'm always up for some gritty dystopian future action. Definitely check this one out!
In a post-apocalyptic future, fractured timelines are wreaking havoc on the world. Only a tough, hard-drinking enforcer named Jack Trevayne can hold things together. This is gritty, hard-boiled sci-fi with attitude. The future is complicated. Jack is not.
