Stomping Into THE DINOSAUR PLACE

Recently, while on vacation, the Daves visited many dinosaur places and had a blast doing it. Being on vacation though you sometimes take for granted what may be in your own back yard. It may be ok to travel thousands of miles on vacation to a particular place but oftentimes you neglect driving just an hour to a similar place in your very own or neighboring state. This was the case with THE DINOSAUR PLACE in Montville, CT.

Cli-Fi: Mother Nature vs. the Energy Crisis, Pollution, and Climate Change by Brandon Engel

The Daves would again like to welcome guest writer Brandon Engel with yet another of his insightful blogs!

Zombie movies are plenty scary, and horror films featuring psychos on a rampage are horrific, but there’s one thing that’s even worse: when mother nature gets fed up and doles out some hellish comeuppance. Such movies are increasingly referred to as climate fiction, which combines the horror and sci-fi genres. The scariness lies in the fact that the scenarios presented in these films aren’t far off from becoming reality – ENMAX estimates that in the US alone, only about 20% of our energy needs are met by renewables or cleaner fossil fuels like natural gas; mostly we’re still using energy sources that have been linked to climate change. Here are some cli-fi movies that imagine the consequences of nature truly going wild.

The Thing

Much like some of the climate phenomena that the world is witnessing today, the villain in the 1982 movie The Thing is hard to describe. This sci-fi thriller starring Kurt Russell was a hit because it maintained its mystery right through to its conclusion. What, exactly, is this thing? Where did it come from? How does it keep turning random guys and dogs into terrifying monsters? No one could answer those questions, but what the survivors did know at the movie’s end is that The Thing would eventually be how they met their end.

Richard Braden and his NecroCreep FX Creations!

Richard Braden is a name that fans of Terror From Beyond The Daves may or may not be aware of (and if you’re not, then you should be). Richard has been a friend of the Daves since day one and was instrumental, even as a teenager, in getting our website off the ground. The Daves may know horror but tend to know less about being tech-savvy (though we are learning). If it wasn’t for Richard, who knows how the site would’ve looked when we originally went live as not only did he help with the overall appearance of the site originally but he helped design our logo and he taught us so much when it comes to WordPress. In 2010 we did a bit of an expose on Richard (seen HERE) and now it’s time for everyone to know what he has been up to in the past 5 years, and it has been a lot.

We couldn’t be more proud of Richard, not only with what he has done for us but with also what he is accomplishing now. He is pursuing his dream and both Daves cannot wish him enough luck and happiness. Recently I caught up with Richard and he agreed to do an interview with me letting the world know what he has been doing.

THE HILLYWOOD SHOW – In the Words of George Takei, “Oh My!”

If you have not heard of The Hillywood Show and the Hindi Sisters (visit their website HERE) then you have probably been living under a rock. Hilly and Hannah are internet sensations with their video parodies of genre films and television shows. They take something that they love and in their parodies have fun and share with the audience things they are passionate about.

I first became aware of them thanks to fellow Terror Dave Dave Fuentes, who forwarded me a link to their Walking Dead Parody. Done to Queen’s “Another One Bites The Dust” this video totally blew me away. From the costumes and locations to the dance routines and special effects, it was obvious this duo knew what they were doing. I watched this video over and over and then started exploring what else they had to offer.
