Hey... Is this thing on?
So, you may have noticed that I haven't been posting as much on here lately. Because of life and the bills that are inherent to it, I've had to prioritize writing for places that pay me, like Screen Rant, Horror Press, and Alternate Ending. Check out my stuff there, if you like!
Don't worry, Census Bloodbath at the very least is still a sword of Damocles hanging over my head that I will return to someday. But in the meantime, while I strive to find that work-life balance I've been hearing so much about, we can't simply let our annual traditions die. I've still got a big ol' flashback post of the best and worst of the year coming at ya on New Year's Eve. But also it's October, which means it's time for the (holy shit) tenth annual Great Switcheroo with Hunter Allen at Kinemalogue. I don't have the bandwidth to do three reviews this year, but he thankfully agreed to accommodate my dire straits and exchange one title apiece.
So that means this year, just like every other, we'll be swapping our areas of expertise. I'll be covering a 1950s B-movie from his Cardboard Science catalogue, while you should keep your eyes out on his end for a Census Bloodbath piece reviewing a 1980s slasher. Blood Rage, no less!
