WHEN THE DEVIL CLIMBS: Book Review



Image result for when the devil climbs


* * * * *


Holiday ham evokes memories of home and family. Sizzling 

bacon entices the senses. Lunch meat is commonplace for most 

luncheons. Most of us enjoy the salty flavor of pork. But how often 

do we think about the animal we eat? A pig is often thought of as a 

penned animal, docile for the most part, lazy and fat. They are

 often dirty, enjoying slop and rolling around in the mud. A few 

lucky pigs have even become treasured pets.  

But what happens when a pig goes feral. Or a group of them? 

Crazed eyes, grotesque snot and a shrilly whine might become your

 worst nightmare as they arrive to chew on your hide.

When The Devil Climbs by Drake Vaughn gives us a glimpse into Russ Grote’s world. A convicted felon, Drake works along others like himself, hanging billboard signs. The work is tedious and often dangerous. Electrocution and taking a nasty fall are particularly worrisome to the men. Working with harden criminals brings about its own set of problems. Tempers mount along with grudges. And it doesn’t help if the boss is abusive and treats you like crap. But this hardened group of men are up against a new challenge – pigs.  But not just any pigs, no these pigs have a taste for blood and will do anything to get it.

When The Devil Climbs will leave you thinking about that other white meat. Perhaps you won’t want to eat that bacon after all. Vividly descriptive, The Devil Climbs is a well-written belly churner filled with glorious detail.


A must read for die hard horror fans.

BIG EYES MOVIE REVIEW



BIG EYES MOVE REVIEW:
 By Tamera Lawrence 

 


Family life was different in the 1950’s for women, who were expected to stay at home and take care of their family. A husband was the main breadwinner.  For better or worse is the motto and divorce is frowned upon. So when Margaret Keane (Amy Adam) leaves her husband, towing along their young daughter, she is met with a stigma already attached. Work is hard to come by for the housewife, who gets a job painting furniture. But Margaret is not deterred, painting portraits of her daughter and other children with her trademark of huge, sad eyes or better known as the “Windows of the Soul.”

 During an sidewalk art fair, Margaret meets the charming Walter Keane, who sweeps her off her feet. With praise and enough ambition for the both of them, the soon to be husband sets upon a quest to find a market for the both of them. It works only too well. Dismayed when his wife’s art begins to sell, Walter claims her artwork as his own, basking in his what should have been his wife’s glory. The eccentric Walter soon hits payday as the paintings, posters and postcards craze begins. But poor Margaret is left out of the limelight, resentful and frustrated by her husband’s lies. Things only spiral after that in what leads to a heated showdown between husband and wife. 

Based on a true story, BIG EYES is a wonderful drama with a few laughs in between. Margaret is an exceptional character, who one can only root for. As much as you want to hate Walter, you can’t help but smile at his quirky character and his sinister charm. 

BIG EYES is a great movie, well written and worth watching. 

Go see it.
