Did Norman kill Miss Watson? I think not, but we'll find out when Season 2 hits in 2014.
On the other hand, I was surprised by how underwhelmed I was by the Eli Roth produced Netflix series Hemlock Grove. Full disclosure: I've only watched the first episode, and I'm just not real tore up about watching the second one. Shelley the mute deformed giant is the only character introduced that piqued my interest at all. Am I missing out? Was I too inpatient for greatness to reveal itself?

I'm pleased to announce that Movies At Dog Farm is now officially LAMB #1565 in The Large Association Of Movie Blogs (The LAMB). Thanks for having me, folks!
I've gotten two new books, and I have a third on the way. I've only gotten about a hundred pages into Reel Terror by David Konow, and so far, so good. So many authors have tackled the Universal horror classics, EC Comics, Psycho, and other horror movie signposts that it's difficult to dig up fresh material. Konow frequently makes use of quotes from pertinent individuals to illustrate his points, and it's always a hoot reading Christopher Lee explain once more why Hammer's Dracula ceased to speak in the latter movies.
Book number two is Horror! 333 Films To Scare You To Death by James Marriott and Kim Newman. Newman frequently appears as a "talking head" in my beloved horror movie documentaries. I read Newman's Nightmare Movies last year, so I decided to give this one a shot, too. I've yet to crack this one, so I'll have to get back to you . . .
Book number three, as yet undelivered, is 101 Horror Movies You Must See Before You Die by Steven Jay Schneider.
Finally, Don Coscarelli's John Dies At The End (2012) is currently available on Netflix streaming. Watch it now if you haven't already. Watch it again if you have. Highly recommended.
