hypertext, words and more


  • I’m absolutely distraught to learn that the incomparable Scott Wampler has passed. He leaves behind such a vast void. He had a way with words. I loved hearing his perspectives on film, fiction and horror. He was a stalwart in the film community and was the former editor over at Birth.Movies.Death.

    He was close with filmmakers, writers, directors and creatives from all walks of life. The man was a bonafide comedian and in recent memory, began reaching new heights with The Kingcast, a podcast that largely covers the works of Stephen King. Guests included Elijah Wood, Guillermo del Toro and of course, Stephen King and more.

    We are worse-off without his quips, insights and jeering tweets. He will be sorely missed 😢

  • So, if you haven’t seen Midsommar yet, please go. It’s fantastic. If you haven’t seen it, there’s no spoilers here 🌻

    Anyways, online radio site, NTS has some really special shows. This one is no exception. Bobby Krlic, aka The Haxan Cloak, who scored Ari Aster’s Midsommar, was invited to swing by the NTS studio and share some of his inspiration for the films score:
