As you probably know, I have spent the first seven months of 2017 writing for the horror blog over at Blumhouse.com, a job which I was very dedicated to (which is why you only got one or two reviews a week on this end, at best). Unfortunately, due to corporate decrees made far above my station, the web site was shut down back in summer and has now officially been dissolved.
The takeaway is twofold:
1) I need a job, so hit me up.
2) I have salvaged all my old Blumhouse content, which is now posted on my blog and backdated so it doesn't swamp anybody's RSS feed. Be warned: they're in no particular order and the formatting will be a little wonky, because I had to bail them out of a sinking web site with no time to spare. But here it all is! Please feel free to check out any ones you might have missed!
