I always liked this movie. Matthew Lillard especially.

This is a new feature that I want to try out here on Written in Blood. I have a pretty huge collection of horror DVDs and Blu-rays (always growing) and I thought what I would do is go down the line from the numeric titles all the way to Z and feature a still from a film and a piece of trivia to go along with it. It might be something you already know but then again maybe not. One thing I know about my readers is that you are all damn smart and you love your horror. Hopefully you’ll love A-Z Trivia Wednesday and it will be my new Wednesday feature. If not then I will keep trying.

First things first: I’m back with a new look that I hope everyone likes and with a new feature that I hope to present to you every Friday night. It’s called Friday Night at the Trailer Park and it is exactly what it says it is; every Friday I will feature a trailer for your enjoyment, amusement, shock and/or awe. It could be a trailer for an upcoming horror movie or for a previously released fright flick. Who knows what you will see here?

I’m going to start with a trailer for a film entitled Dark Was the Night (aka The Trees). It stars Kevin Durand, Lukas Hass, Heath Freeman, Sabina Gadecki, and Nick Damici.

SynopsisMaiden Woods is a remote and quiet town of decent, hard-working people, but something stirs in the dark woods surrounding this isolated community. After a logging company decimates an area of the forest, a rash…

About the Author

Where do I begin? Well first I guess it’s only fair to say that CP Bialois isn’t my real name. It’s a collaboration I made out of the three greatest pets anyone could ever want. My real name is Ed and I’m just an average person that has found a way to do what he loves.

For as long back as I can remember I loved to pretend. Whether it was with my Transformers, GI Joe, or He-Man toys I loved to create intricate plots and have them fight it out. As a fan of horror, science fiction, action, and comedy I dare say my taste in movies are well rounded. Some of my favorites were Star Wars, Star Trek, martial arts, and anything with Schwarzenegger in them.

I’d write my own stories about the characters I saw in the theaters or TV or I’d just daydream about what I’d see myself as the hero of course. You can’t have a daydream without beating the bad guys, getting the girl, etc. It’s just not right to envision yourself as a flunky or sidekick.

As far as books I loved Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Dracula, and the normal assortment. My early love was the Star Trek novels, I’d read them or the Hardy Boys relentlessly. For a time I could tell you the plot of over a hundred books not to mention comics.

I have to come clean and say that I learned to read because of comic books. I was bored, make that extremely bored when we started to read in school. Reading “the cat fell down” really didn’t interest me. My dad, who continues to astound me with his insight to this day, figured comics would work. With that in mind he went to the newstand in town and bought issues of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Tales From the Crypt, and Spider-man. He patiently read through them with me until I picked it up. Whether it was him or the comics I learned to read in about two weeks and for a while few were as good as I was. For years after that whenever we’d go out he’d always spring for a couple of comic books for me.

While it wasn’t exactly the perfect beginning everything I’ve ever read or have seen has influenced me in some way and now is the time I’d like to share some of the ideas I’ve had over the years with all of you. I hope you enjoy my stories, they’re always fun to write and I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon.
