In the new young adult sci-fi adventure movie Max Winslow and the House of Secrets, five teenagers are chosen by eccentric billionaire Atticus Virtue (Chad Michael Murray) to spend the night in his mansion, which is run by a special AI-interface, he’s called H.A.V.E.N. (voiced by Marina Sirtis).
I’m a huge fan of Guillermo del Toro‘s films, and I enjoyed the Strain trilogy that he wrote with Chuck Hogan, and turned into a TV series. So when I saw that the two were collaborating on this new novel, The Hollow Ones, I was excited to give it a read.
The story starts by introducing us to Odessa Hardwicke, an inexperienced FBI agent. She arrives at a crime scene accompanied by her partner, veteran agent Walt Leppo. Things go crazy as they confront the man who has snapped and is killing his family.

This weekend, during day one of DC Fandome, my favorite panel and reveal was The Suicide Squad, where director James Gunn not only revealed the characters, but offered a first look at the film via a behind-the-scenes reel.
Of course it figures…I post an excitedly written article about the upcoming DC FanDome event happening this weekend, and the next day they decide to revamp the whole schedule by adding a second day.
I know, right? But I can’t be mad, because it just means even more DC awesomeness for all of us to enjoy.
So here’s what is happening with this DC online fan con: the panels and other events are now being split into two days. And it’s still all FREE!!
As a teen in the 80s, pre-hundreds of cable channels, my guilty TV pleasure was Saturday morning cartoons, especially the ThunderCats. In 2011, Warner Bros. Animation “reimagined” the show, which I didn’t get a chance to catch.
Well, whether you were a fan of the old or new, I’m happy to let you know that both versions of the ThunderCats will be available tomorrow (August 20) on Hulu as exclusive titles.
If you watched the San Diego Comic-Con online last month, you may have wondered where all the DC comics/movies/TV show panels were. That was because the comic giant was planning their own shindig, DC FanDome, which happens this Saturday, August 22.
George A. Romero is known for inventing the modern zombie with his film, Night of the Living Dead, in 1968. He wrote and helmed several other zombie movies, but felt he couldn’t tell the zombie story he wanted on screen, so he began to write a novel.
Unfortunately, when Romero passed in 2017, the story remained unfinished.
Enter Daniel Kraus, co-author of the New York Times bestseller The Shape of Water (based on the Academy Award-winning movie) and Trollhunters (which became an Emmy Award-winning series) – both with with Guillermo del Toro, and author of The Death and Life of Zebulon Finch (an Entertainment Weekly Top 10 Book of the Year).
A lifelong Romero fan, Kraus was honored to be asked by Romero’s widow to complete this book, which was titled The Living Dead.
The Apocalypse Strain by Jason Parent is set in Siberia at a secret research facility, in a current time frame.
Among the items found in the ice during excavations is an ancient virus, nicknamed Molli. Dr. Clara St. Pierre, one of the leading scientists in the field of medical genomics and bioinformatics, is studying Molli when an astrobiologist named Sergei bursts into her lab and drinks the entire dish.
Here is the list of titles coming to Netflix in August 2020, as well as the ones that are leaving.

This month has a little something for everyone, so here is the complete list of Netflix titles arriving and departing in August 2020:
I’m a fan of James Rollins, so when two of his Sigma Force novels popped up on Amazon’s Prime Reading program to borrow, I added them to my reading library. The Demon Crown (Sigma Force #13) was one of those two books.
I read book #12 prior to this one, so I was already caught up on the Sigma Force adventures, but nothing prepared me for the horror unleashed in The Demon Crown.
And I do mean horror.
This week, San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) takes the convention online with Comic-Con@Home July 22-26, 2020, and I have all the details you need to know.
For the first time in its 50-year history, Comic-Con organizers were forced to make the heartbreaking decision to cancel the annual celebration of comics and pop culture for 2020.
But then, they announced they would host an online version to start July 22, the official start date of the originally scheduled convention.
And for the first time, SDCC will be free to enjoy!
I’m a fan of James Rollins, so when two of his Sigma Force novels popped up on Amazon’s Prime Reading program to borrow, I added them to my reading library. The Seventh Plague (Sigma Force #12) was one of those two books.
The story begins as the leader of a lost British archaeological expedition, Professor Harold McCabe, comes stumbling out of the sands, frantic and delirious, but dies before he can tell his story.
My favorite food in the world is tacos, so when I saw the Old El Paso World Taco Kit in a Korean-Inspired BBQ flavor, I had to buy it and try it at home.
This is apparently a new line of taco kits from Old El Paso, and also comes in two other flavors.
I was intrigued by the synopsis of the horror anthology Sharp & Sugar Tooth (Women Up to No Good):
“Containing 22 stories of bad women, and good women who just haven’t been caught yet, it features 22 fearless writers who identify as female, non-binary, or a marginalized sex or gender identity.”
I decided to request it for review and proceeded to dive in.
