Remember those good old, bad old, scary but fun thriller/horror/sci-fi movies from the 50s, 60s, and 70s? You know the kind I'm talking about, the ones where the paper-mache` and wire special effects (and the acting, too, come to think about it) were only slightly better than a standard high school play? In most cases, the titles and preview trailers were the high points of the feature.
Yet we gobbled 'em up and kept coming back for more.
And now the Sy-Fy Channel on TV is cashing in on a whole new crop of the same kind of thing, only slightly enhanced with a dash of low grade computer-generated special effects. With titles like the above mentioned Sharknado and others such as Chupacabra vs. The Alamo, 2-Headed Shark Attack, Tasmanian Devils, etc., how can you not want to check them out?
Well, it doesn't stop there. Thanks to the creative brilliance behind Schlock Zone Drive-In Theater, a whole raft of exciting writers from a variety of genre backgrounds are turning out a series of eBooks aimed at capturing that whole vein of … well, schlock horror.
Schlock Zone even has its own hostess --- Mistress Evili. You can see more of her (and you red-blooded males, trust me, you will want to see more of her – although it may cost you some of that red blood) at the SZ blog here: http://schlockzone.blogspot.com/p/now-showing.html .
The first two titles in the SZ series are available now they are:
Check out these exciting titles and then be on the lookout for more coming soon!
Add some scary fun to your summer.
