6 Unlikely and Quirky Horror Movies on Netflix in March 2018
March isn't a traditionally a great time of year to get spooked. Halloween is months away, and it's too chilly for machete-wielding slashers to hit up camp for fresh meat. Still, Netflix is determined to deliver some scares the same month folks toast ... #horrornetflix

Kirkus #Review of Demon King posted at Erik Henry Vick's Blog:
Great news! Kirkus finished its #review of Demon King a bit early!
Since this is Kirkus, and their reviews always contain a massive amount of spoilers, I’m going to do my normal thing and quote the non-spoiler parts 🙂
“Troubling disappearances and violent murders rock a small town in this #horror novel....
Oneka Falls is a sleepy little town that happens to be ground zero for supernatural activity. When 11-year-old Toby Burton disappears, his friend Benny Cartwright is the first to notice and start looking. Vick’s (Errant Gods, 2017, etc.) supernatural #horror story is evocative of Stephen King’s work in its use of a small-town setting and a gang of friends facing a powerful evil. The narrative’s chronological leaps are an effective method in building tension in both the past and present. The #author doesn’t pull any punches when describing the violent results of a demonic encounter
A supernatural thriller with several surprising and satisfying twists.”
I’ll take it!
Remember that Demon King goes on sale 3/30/18 everywhere!

The Well-Worn Trail to Target posted at Erik Henry Vick's Blog:
When our son was born, he came two weeks early, and we didn’t have everything prepared—but we ...thought we did. Maybe I should say, we didn’t have anything prepared. We had a crib, one package of newborn diapers, and a few onesies. Erik spent the first few days after we got home from the hospital beating a trail between our house and the nearest Target. I think he started with twenty swaddling blankets and six full-sized bottles. Six bottles might last one day and how was I ever going to use twenty swaddling blankets? He went back every day and bought all the bottles Target had on the shelves (which was 4-6 each day—evidently that section was stocked by someone who also had no clue how many bottles was “enough”). By the end of the first week, we were more evened out, and we had infant-sized bottles. The first two months were the roughest, and by the time he started sleeping through at four months, everything was old hat (and we only needed to go to Target once a week).
I asked Supergirl if she would write a few blog posts about our real lives. We’re calling it Hank and Jane IRL, and if you don’t get the Hank and Jane reference, you need to read Errant Gods 🙂
