My name is Holly Ann and I’m an avid zombie and horror fan. I’m currently working for work as a teacher, but sometimes the going is rough. I live at home with my parents and our Boston Terrier, Lily [nicknamed Bear].
As far back as I could remember I have read horror themed books. I started with R.L. Stein and moved on to books by authors Stephen King and H. P. Lovecraft, among others. The first Stephen King book I ever read was “The Shining“. I thought it was great and have been hooked ever since ! As I continue to blog I will be adding more reviews of their work.
My movie preferences have likewise been dominated primarily by the horror genre. The first horror movie I remember seeing was Tobe Hooper‘s Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It scared the life out of me ! Another movie that I remember scaring me was Trilogy of Terror [3 I believe?]. It was the movie that featured the vignette “He Who Kills”. I must have had nightmares about that doll for months. Even now I can remember the scene where there is a girl stuck in a closet, and the doll is on the other side. He’s a little aboriginal looking wood carved doll with wild hair and eyes. The girl desperately opens the door and holds out a suitcase and he goes tearing into it yelling and waving his spear. Eek ! Freaky.
My first video game was Resident Evil 4 [not because of my age but because at a young age the importance of reading was impressed on me – I was never given an Atari, and my first gaming system was a PS2 which I received for my 20th birthday. I’m currently working through the campaigns in Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2, although I’m painfully slow. My navigational abilities are nonexistent.
I created this blog as a relief for my boyfriend, friends, and family, who are almost positive that I unable to function without zombies, and they may be correct. I would also like to get in touch with other zombie and horror fanatics in the hopes of discovering more interesting media. Please feel free to comment on the posts, but remember to be respectful to one another.
I hope some day to begin writing my own horror fiction, and perhaps be published.
By the way, the picture on my pages is my Boston Terrier, Lily, menacing a pull apart zombie doll. I figured a smidge of humor was necessary.
