With WWII coming to an end, the Soviet army is deploying liberation squads around Germany. As one squad moves through Germany, they are still hit with some resistance, but seem to be focused on the liberation of the areas, as they are being filmed on their mission. Trying to make the sure that the Red Army is being shown in a positive light, the squad is more hesitant to kill which could cost them more than they could imagine.
Upon receiving a communication from one of their fellow liberation squads, the men try to pinpoint the location they need to proceed to, to extract their comrades. Locating the town where the transmission came from the group is amazed to find that it is empty of any discernable life, even goats. Working towards the center of town, the squad's focus turns to a church that seems to have been the focal point of the fight. A pile of burning nuns gets the groups attention, but then they notice that all of the graves nearby have been dug up and emptied.
Entering the church, the squad notices that it is more of a factory than a church. Trying to figure out what has happened to the group that radioed for help, they find a strange body in the basement that seems to be run on electricity. After their captain gets drilled through by the strange creature a power struggle ensues between the men, but is squashed when they find out that their cameraman has playing them as he had an alternative motive for following the squad.
Frankenstein’s Army is a war movie first, with a horror story to follow. Following a Soviet Liberation Squad on their mission to free the small towns from the oppression that the Germans had imposed on them. With cameraman Dimitri tagging along, the group is shocked to find out the secret mission that the non-Soviet is really on. When meeting a deranged Doctor that is employed by the Third Reich, the group sees what is really happening behind enemy lines.
With all of the specials that have been run on Hitler’s fascination of the occult makes this a very entertaining movie to watch. Leaving you asking, ‘what if’, is always a fun way to watch a movie based around historical events. One of the highlights of this film is showing that the soldiers do show a sense of compassion for their fallen, but are not afraid to end their suffering if there is nothing they can do to help. Then seeing how the crazy doctor fancies himself a savior even though his experiments are meant to kill, he is looking for the one and only way he knows to bring the two opposing forces together.
Overall a fun period piece that keeps you wondering what would have happened if the Third Reich would have won the war. Having the movie shot in first person also gives is a bit more gusto as you get to see what they are seeing and not seeing as some strange characters start to appear. Not having a budget of a Hollywood blockbuster, the film crew does a great job on their monster creations, using people in costumes and very little CGI. Keeping true to the time period and having a strong cast is really what makes this movie work. If you are into the occult, or love a WWII movie, you will not be disappointed picking this one up. Stay scared my friends.

When working with a group of people for any surmountable amount of time, you have to decide if you can trust them or not. Now most people have co-workers that are responsible for different aspects of the job that is being done and it is not a life or death situation. At the Bureau of Supernatural Investigations, (BSI), the latter is the case. A split second decision can make the difference in your life, or in your partners.
Kal Hakala is in charge of a small group of agents at the BSI roaming field office that is now stationed in Denver, Colorado. Due to some of the recent disturbances around the area, the bureau has sent him and his team in to investigate and dispose of any of the threats. The BSI is a very tightly run little group of no more than fifty active agents at a time, along with fifty support members in the office. Kal’s superior BB is keeping everything in check at the office level, trying to locate a new agent to take a recently fallen ones place and assigns her Kal’s unit.
Although Kal is the most tenured agent in the bureau, he is not very happy about receiving the new recruit without doing his research on the young woman. Ariel McMillan, the new agent in question, has caught Kal’s eye, but knowing how short the life span is of the new ‘Green Pea’s’ is when it comes to field work, Kal is very tough on her right out of the gate. What is the purpose of the BSI? It is to eliminate a supernatural threat before it harms any of the normal people in the world. The World Under is where the supernatural players live and thrive, but once they come up to the real world and start using their magic/powers, the BSI is in place to take them out.
Even though Kal employees a magician on his team and deals with a specter over the internet, he still gets surprised by what happens when he is not paying full attention. Two new reports of magic have come in, and even though the team cannot identify immediately what was done, they fear that ghouls or zombies have been raised from a grave yard. Keeping his team in check, Kal works with local law enforcement to find out anything that may have been suspicious about the bodies that are no longer in their graves. When he discovers that the folks that were risen were wrestlers, he knows that something big is afoot, he and his team would be in for the battle of their lives.
Things to do in Denver When You’re Un-Dead deals with the supernatural, magic and what can be done when the two are combined. Following Kal as he tries to keep his team safe, you find that he may be the most tortured of all. With the loss of his sister to the Iku-Turso when he was a young boy, Kal has dedicated all of his time to the BSI to try and find a way to dispose of this threat while keeping his rage at bay. With his supporting cast of Alex, his internet hacker and a few others on his team, he works endlessly to try to solve his next case. The Organ Donor is working in Denver and leaving emptied bodies around and phoning them into the local police. Looking deeper into the case, Kal and crew discover this person may be a magician using the killings as a cover up for something much more sinister.
This is definitely a book to pick up if you are into crime dramas, zombies, vampires, ghouls, magic, character studies, and just down right fun. With your lead having to make the tough decisions of who will stay, who will go, who will survive and who will not is the best way to have a story laid out. With an appearance from his past, Kal is faced with more than his own demons, having to fight super powered ghouls, zombies and yes, even vampires that have been risen by the Organ Donor. Having to keep his rage in check is where the book really clicks with me, as since when the job gets too hard, or Kal loses one of his team members, Kal has only one way to release his anger, and it is not on the sofa at a psychiatrist's office. A real person faced with unreal situations makes for a fantastic story along with his one reason for staying alive…to avenge his sister’s death. Happy reading and Stay Scared my friends.

What would you do if you had lost everything you have ever loved? Hunter had lost his wife and child to the zombie outbreak and was looking for one thing to release his pain, death. With a new drug hitting the scene, Natas had gained a world wild following as it took you places you that no other drug could, but it comes with one nasty side effect, turning its users into flesh eating freaks.
Moving from one place to another, Hunter fears that he could be the only one left. Not have a care for his own wellbeing, Hunter enters no win situations against the flesh eaters and always comes out victorious. After his latest mid-day massacre, Hunter goes back on the road to continue his journey. After getting shot in the arm and crashing his Camaro, Hunter knows that he is not the only one left.
Being taken in by a roaming band of survivors led by Father Jesus, Hunter reluctantly becomes a member of the group. Having to deal with the living is almost unbearable for him as he has been alone for over six months. Being pursued by the two female members, Fast Lane Debbie and Alison, Hunter turns back to the only thing that makes him feel like himself again, his drink.
When their little place of solace is attacked by the flesh eaters and they lose one of their main warriors, the group decides to move on and try to find a better home. The only way to get there is by getting to the local airfield and commandeer an airplane to take them to a place with white sandy beaches. Only two things stand in the way of attaining their goal, the flesh eaters and the small town of Dahmer. Dahmer was overrun months ago by zombies and although the group was afraid of what they might find, they run into something more horrific than they could possibly imagine.
Zombie Hunter follows the path of Hunter who is not looking for anything, except a way to release his pain. Father Jesus allows the man to join his group of survivors, seeing that Hunter may be a valuable asset, Jesus makes sure that Hunter understands that they are currently living in hell. Fast Lane Debbie and young Alison are just looking for something to believe in again, and having a new man in their prescence arouses something neither has felt for the past year. With a couple more survivors to add into the mix, including a pilot, the group is prepared to make their trek to freedom.
Although Zombie Hunter is not the best zombie movie ever, it has all of the essentials of a proper splatter fest. With zombies being taking out by gunfire, knives and a sacred axe, the screen is filled with plenty of blood. Non-conventional zombies seem to get me every time as shots to anywhere take them down, but the campy special effects make sure to keep you cringing as the zombies continuously hit the ground. With limbs and blood flying all over the place, it makes for a fun film. If you like the blood and guts aspect of horror movies, this is definitely one to check out, you will not be disappointed. Stay scared.

THIS IS THE EMERGENCY SPOILER ALERT SYSTEM...YOU ARE ADVISED TO READ AT YOUR OWN RISK...
The Walking Dead premiered its midseason finale Sunday night. We are now, eight episodes into this season and I was definitely weary of what was going to happen this midseason finale. Now the last two episodes were centered just around The Governor. It showed a tale of a man who had fallen and at his worst was left by his friends. He was found by two women and a little girl who he decided that he would protect. After being on the run, he finds his old friend Martinez who had taken in a few people and they created a camp. However after getting settled in, The Governor killed Martinez and the next in charge (brutally) and took over control of the camp. From there he again had a kingdom to run. However now, he wanted something more, the prison and Michonne dead. It really was hard waiting a week for this episode.
So first off, The Governor knocked out Michonne and kidnapped her and Hershel. He prepared his people for a fight in order to take over the Prison. He blamed them for burning down his home and murdering his daughter. Of course lies after lies. After all agree to this murder plot, he tells Lilly that he loves her and that he's going to keep them safe.
After that, he goes to where they keep Michonne and Hershel. Hershel tries to appeal to The Governor's sensitive side however, that fails. Of course Michonne has none of it. All she wants it to kill him however Hershel stops her from talking. The Governor wants nothing but the prison and Rick gone. Lilly tries to be the voice of reason but he doesn't listen to her at all. Back at the Prison, Glenn is healing slowly. Everyone who was sick is. Sasha tries to thank Bob for what he's done to help her heal however Bob is not doing well as well. He's dealing with alcohol dependency and isn't winning that battle.
Daryl on the other hand finds out that Rick sent Carol away. Daryl was livid, saying that it wasn't her. Saying that it wasn't fair for him to send her away before they got back. When they go to tell Tyreese, they find that someone had "surgicallly" dissected a rodent and left it on display. Tyreese goes on to think whomever did this was feeding the walkers and killed Karen and David, going back to my theory of the little girl. Right when they were about to tell Tyreese about Carol, a tank shell hit the the building they were in.
Everyone runs out to see The Governor standing on top of a tank and several cars with several armed people standing near the fence. The Governor yells for Rick to come out and threatens him with the fact that he has Hershel and Michonne. Rick then goes down to talk to him. He begs for mercy because of the sick however, The Governor tells them that they had better be out by sundown.
So then the scene goes back to the river where, The Governor left Lilly and her daughter. All I can say is, WHY IS SHE ALLOWED TO PLAY OUTSIDE?! Of course that backfires. I understand why Shae said she was terrified, hell I even hid under my covers then almost ran out of my room for that scene. Yep she got bit by a walker who was under the mud.
Back at the Prison, Rick still tries to negotiate. However, The stupid Governor kills the most sincere person in the show, Hershel. With a sword. He chops off his head. What a psychopath. Michonne gets away thankfully. I cried.
The fight starts. Several people are lost and Rick is in the fist fight of his life against the Governor. Judith gets eaten we think and the Governor gets stabbed through the heart by Michonne and she leaves him there to suffer. Rick, Carl, Michonne and Daryl and it looks like the majority of the core group, survive. I have to say my favorite part would be when Lilly comes up with a gun and shoots The Governor in the head with her gun. Poetic Justice. That's all I can say. Because of him she lost her daughter and possibly her sister.
This entire episode I was yelling at the TV "KILL HIM KILL HIM!" This whole season I haven't wanted Rick alive until this episode when I wanted him to kill The Governor. Of course it was Michonne who got to stab him. This episode is a tough one to swallow. I really don't know what to think. All I know is that I'm SO glad that he's dead. I'm sad that Glen and Maggie are separated and I believe that that little girl is a psychopath, which even more fuels the whole, "She was the one killed those two people." But...yay! The Governor is dead!
So, The Walking Dead will return in February of 2014 and now we have a two month wait to see how everyone is doing and who all died. Which I think is adequate time in order to process what the **** just happened.

THIS IS THE EMERGENCY SPOILER ALERT SYSTEM...YOU ARE ADVISED TO READ AT YOUR OWN RISK...
The showdown we waited for after all this time finally came to pass. Philip "The Governor" Blake finally arrived to take the prison from Rick Grimes and his weakened group and well...this was not the showdown we expected. It was far more brutal, for more devastating than I think any of us even had in our imagination. Another beloved character is gone, and we are all still reeling in shock. Without further ado, let's recap "Too Far Gone".
The Good: Um. Where do I begin? This was...just so utterly brutal. So much in fact that it took me several hours and a good night's sleep to even find the strength to write about it, because they held nothing back. We got the showdown I looked forward to since the Governor graced our screens last year, and now I regret that anticipation. Hershel is dead, killed in the most horrible fashion. We don't know if Judith/Lil' Asskicker is alive and just wow. The final image of the prison burning was a fitting way to sum up the episode...everything burned. Once again this damn show made me cry and made me sick to my stomach all while making me cheer at the same time. For all the horrible things the Governor did, it was a complete and utter joy to watch Michonne finally run that son of a bitch through. But the real highlight here is the fact that new showrunner Scott Gimple is a master of deception. We thought for the last seven episodes we were getting a kindler, gentler show under his thumb. That the world of The Walking Dead would somehow find its way back to better days. It was all one horrible, horrible lie, but one hell of an episode.
The Bad: Of course I'm not exactly thrilled that Hershel is gone from the show, but I learned that last year, good people die on this show. No, the only thing I didn't like about last night...the Governor should have suffered more. In fact, it's almost a shame that Lilly put a bullet in his head rather than let him be torn apart by Walkers. He deserved a slow, painful death.
The Verdict: This one is right up there with "Clear". One of the most brutal and devastating and compelling episodes of the show to date. It left me silent and wiping tears from my eyes. But for all the tears and all the fears, this is incredible television and last night's Mid season finale could have served as a Season Finale...which makes me nervous for the back eight episodes and the actual end of Season 4. Strap in, I have a feeling it's going to be one hell of a ride from here on out.
Daniel's Take The Good: Holly fricking hell,….brutal and one of the most memorable episodes to date. Right up there with Rick blasting Sophia in the head, I do have to wonder if the Governor was a Politician before Z day because he can give some impressive speeches to rally the troops. The fact that the Governor can so quickly switch from some benevolent hope for these poor lost people; to heartless killer ready to smoke Hershel’s daughters because they are not his is wild. I think that is what I have missed, some of the more pointed, heated conversations between the Governor and, well everyone. Let’s face it this whole episode has been one long build up and some grand plan set into motion by the Governor. From last week’s moments of convincing that have pushed his new found group into this direction. The one lone walker that made it into camp to show everyone they were not safe. I would even bet it was the Governor that attacked the other group of campers, wounding just enough for the rest of the group to pack up and run like hell, every move planed and set like a master Chessmen.
All set into motion and right up to the front gate of the Prison which stood no chance against a tank. I would have loved if this had happened in the comic, instead of a bunch or rifle toting idiots. What I love about the show so much is the moments of unpredictability, the sliver of hope you get to see and waiting to see which side makes a mess of it first. For that moment with Rick appealing to the Governor, trying to reach some sort of truce and talk through it. The moment Hershel seemed proud of Rick like a father proud of his son learning to ride a new bike. I was waiting for someone in the prison to flinch and a stray bullet take out one of the raiders, but alas I couldn’t have been more wrong. But I will get to that in a moment because what it set off was one hell of a fight but you tend to get that when you bring a tank to a gun fight. That didn’t keep Rick and the Governor from the man to man battle royale that needed to happen and since Rick’s hand was all ready messed up and who caught a bullet in the leg was not up for the fight. I think Rick could have been a 100% and still have lost that fight because there is no beating crazy which we got to see earlier as the Governor has no choice but to kill Lilly’s Zombie bit child (oh and no dress to put the poor thing into) which was awesome as it came out of the mud I have to say.
There were a lot of surprises and I don’t want to ruin them but Michonne and Lilly had to of had the best moments in the show for me. Michonne taking the moral high ground (yea, right) as she took her sword thought the Governor and leaving him to bleed out and die. A way to get back at the Governor for both herself and Daryl and a fitting end if it had been left that way but then that would be The Walking Dead, once again calling on its comic book roots for a far better end and follows the comic a little bit closer. Lilly, without making a noise gets the final word in how the Governor meets his end.
The Bad: Did Hershel need to die? Yes and no and I have to say that Clayton called it earlier this week at the comic shop when we were talking about last week’s episode. It was only going to be a matter of time with his bum leg and him sort of taking the place of Dale after his unexpected departure. When I heard that there was going to be some major character to die I figured a couple of the girls, maybe Glenn but to have Hershel taken out the way Tyreese was in the comic came a bit unexpected. In the comic the imagery was so powerful and almost the same as Tyreese was forced to his knees by the Governor and then executed in front of the group in the prison. My issue is not with what happened but to whom it happened to. Of all the characters, Hershel was the sanest of the group. The voice you would need when you were a kid who woke from a bad dream, for feeling sick and just wanted to feel better. You’re not going to get that voice from Rick, or Glenn, or Maggie or the gentle manner in how he conducted himself. Really? Back to no one knowing how to shoot a Automatic Rifle but you give Carl a .22 and he can take out the entire group.
The Verdict: We learned this week that there are plenty of sickos left to fight as the group found the dissected rat in the catacombs and my money is on that’s who took off with everyone in the bus. We also learned Rock beats scissors and Daryl beats tank and don’t piss a 12 year old off who can shoot a gun better than Tyreese.
A great end for the midpoint of the season as its every man for them self leaving the smoldering ruins of the prison behind them and about damn time if you ask me. Everyone running in different directions same as the comic and in total disarray and Rick in rotten shape after getting his ass handed to him using Carl to hold himself up. Can’t wait till February it’s looking to be one hell of a run.

We all suffer from an interesting issue when it comes to motion pictures. We love villains. We cannot take our eyes off of them, we cannot spend enough time talking about them, they simply fascinate us. I don't know if it is a darker side of us that somehow gravitates to the evil that we see on screen, because that gets into an interesting discussion for another day.
Instead, maybe, just maybe, we aren't necessarily all about the villain and what he or she stands for...but the person who plays them. It could be the actor that somehow makes the villain worth our while and that specific reason is why I think Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof is so damn enjoyable.
Stuntman Mike lives on the edge, just as his namesake implies. It is all about thrills and chills for Mike as he brings about death-defying stuns that keep all of us in awe on the screen. He does his job from his death proof car day in and day out and always has a smile on his face. But don't let his charm fool you, Mike has a secret. He's a sucker for a beautiful lady, and he loves nothing more than to kill them in the most thrilling of fashion.
The second half of the film Grindhouse is not without its flaws. At times Death Proof is a little slow and seems to lose its way. Yet, you are captivated with every frame of this film. The characters manage to jump off the screen thanks in part to amazing performances from Rosario Dawson and a hell of a surprising turn from Zoe Bell. Plus the gory special effects are about as top notch as they get courtesy of always fantastic work from KNB.
But there is one man that steals the show in this film, and it's Kurt Russell's turn as Stuntman Mike and his performance is exactly what I mentioned earlier...this is a villain that you cannot stop being fascinated with. It's obvious that Stuntman Mike is one sick sonofagun. With his incredible and creepy ability as a stalker and well...his bloodlust to kill girls by way of car collision. Yet, Kurt's ability to turn on the charm when he needs to and genuinely terrify us a few seconds later is well...just incredible. It speaks to the talent that Mister Russell exudes on screen but also helps build the film up to a big surprise, the fact that when it comes down to it, Stuntman Mike is a big wimp.
While Death Proof is a disgusting character study in the spirit of exploitation films in many ways, Director Quentin Tarantino and his unique style also make the film a fascinating character study by presenting the two halves of a killer. I love the fact that this film presents a sadistic killer as just a man who in the end, is terrified of death and pain like the rest of us...he's just found himself in a place where he can control and beat it and man...that makes for a smart horror flick and ends up making Death Proof completely worth your while.

Let’s take a quick trip back to the seventies type of horror movies. Back then, horror movies were based on blood and guts and a strong story line. Not forgetting this, Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino combined forces and drew upon their youth to re-invent a new cult favorite.
Having many storylines between couples, brothers and a dysfunctional father/daughter relationship, Planet Terror brought more than just relationships to the screen. With a fantastic staff comes great acting with horror greats Tom Savini and Michael Biehn, and they are nicely complimented by Freddie Rodriguez, Rose McGowan and Bruce Willis.
Now while nothing about this movie screams Oscar in any way, shape or form, it is a very entertaining film as you watch all of the different characters grow in one way or another. The effects are nothing less than spectacular having one of the greats, Greg Nicotero leading the charge with all kinds of splatter flying across the screen. Not being given limits of how the infected will be disposed of makes an effects driven movie much more entertaining.
Planet Terror takes you on a spectacular ride as a type of zombie virus is released on a small town. The DC-2 gas that is released either kills people or makes them dependent on it. The folks that are immune to its effects are ravaged by the infected. Fighting with the Sheriff and new hero Wray, a group bands together to take on a corrupted military platoon as they try to leave town. Meeting up with Biochemist Abby, the group takes their fight to the next level as they discover the only weakness the infected soldiers have, DC-2 gas.
With your main storyline hiding behind Wray, a tow truck driver that has a hidden past that only wants to save his love, Cherry, there are plenty of other stories to go around. There is Cherry, a now former Go-Go Dancer that is looking for her next profession, possibly as a stand-up comedian. Lt. Muldoon is looking for some way to keep his men alive after being exposed to DC-2 gas. And then there is the brothers, J.T. and Sheriff Hague who continually battle over the best bar-b-q in the family. Then Doctor William Block and wife Doctor Dakota Block are at ends of each other, but neither will say anything to each other as both of their trusts have been pushed to the test.
If you are Looking for a fast paced horror film with tons of blood, Planet Terror is your film. Lots of blood and guts being shot all over the screen with strong performances and a story line that keeps your attention, Robert Rodriguez has brought the cult classic back to the big screen. The film even has adds grain along with discoloration added in to make you feel as if you are watching an old beat up movie that has been played many times over before getting to you. Having a missing reel is also a stroke of genius as you move from the movies love scene to a building burning down, having no reason why. Scares, humor, action and gore, the only elements you need for a good horror movie. If you have not seen this film yet and love horror or scary movies, pick it up, you will not be disappointed. If you have seen it, give it another view, for there are scenes that will still make you smile as you remember back to your first viewing. Stay scared out there.

Romance and Bombs dropping are two of the things that most people like to read about, but having Zombies tie them together makes it fun for all. Roms, Bombs & Zoms
does just that, not only focusing on the popular genre of zombies eating their way through humanity, but adding in romance that goes unfinished in a sense when the world turns into a downward spiral. Couples face the oncoming apocalypse together or through correspondence, but no matter how far apart they are, their love will keep them together in one way or another.
Having stories that range from the middle ages to today, Roms, Bombs & Zoms
makes sure to cover all of its bases with twenty one authors all giving us their take on love in a time of zombies. Here's an idea of how diverse and incredible some of these stories are. In ‘Church of the Risen Dead’, by Tom D. Wright, Reverend Marcus has his faith in God tested with the loss of his wife Anne to the virus. Trying anything to be with his wife, he starts going to the camp where she is held and tries to bring her mind back to where it was before her untimely death. Trying to find comfort for himself, Marcus starts running sermons for the camp and gains a new fellowship with the zombies in attendance, along with their families. The message he tries to deliver is however lost in translation as his new parishioners choose to go down a different path, and he reluctantly follows.
In ‘Mama’, by Jay Wilburn, Kelly is faced with the fact that her long time love had been taken by the virus and has found refuge in the protection of Buck. Although she has strong feelings for Buck, Kelly only wishes she could love him as much as her previous lover. Buck did not let this get under his skin as he was preparing a trip out to visit his mother so Kelly could meet and learn from her. Being a very self-sufficient woman, Mama had her farm protected from the undead and was more than willing to teach any young woman, especially the one staying with her son the tricks of the trade. While teaching Kelly how to make an easier explosive, Mama laid a profound fact on her to help Kelly get past the loss of her first love.
Other couples are separated by the onslaught of the outbreak and forced to join the fight. In ‘I’ll Come Back’, Anne is sent out to battle the undead while her lover Matthew stays home and prays for her safe arrival. Matthew is planning their future together and does not want to hear about genocide that is happening across the ocean. Anne is focused on the killing that is right in front of her, along with the impending bombing that will be taking place if the soldiers end up losing any ground to the undead. With the only way of communication between the two being conventional mail, their correspondence is cut off as a mail carrier near the front line is killed. Not knowing the fate of his love, Matthew buys a farm for the two of them to work on when Anne arrives home, but did not expect the plague to arrive on his side of the ocean. Arriving home, Anne is met with a surprise that ends up changing her life.
Some people may try to take advantage of the situation, trying to make their lives better or what they believe would be better. In ‘An Undying Love’, Morty does just that. Finding the love of his life and keeping her chained up while he tries to win her heart over. Buying the finest flowers and getting the ring she would flip for, the love of his high school days would be his. Although Christine got married, Morty never lost hope that she would be his, he just had to bide his time. With the loss of her husband, and her life, it was just the chance that Morty would take to make her his, forever.
Every story in this anthology encompasses its own type of twist on the zombie apocalypse and how it could change the world and the lovers inside of it. A great compilation of stories that will keep you thinking about what you would do if you or your loved one was bitten and turned into a flesh craving monster. Could you keep them around, protect them, risking the chance of having you turn into one? Could you take advantage of the situation, making it beneficial to yourself or others? Could you live your life without them, taking your own life to see them at a later time, or allow them to infect you, so you can be together, 'til death do you part?
Either way, I hope that Roms, Bombs & Zoms has the answers you need because it's a pretty awesome read. One I definitely recommend and one that you should own as soon as possible. You'll find a copy on Amazon.com and make sure you read it with someone you love, after all...it's a good idea to make sure they're still breathing when you're done.

THIS IS THE EMERGENCY SPOILER ALERT SYSTEM...YOU ARE ADVISED TO READ AT YOUR OWN RISK...
Sheriff Jody Mills makes her grand return to season 9! Seems someone's kidnapping 'virgins' in her town and with witnesses reporting seeing blue fire, they all assume it's a dragon. How do the Winchester's investigate? By becoming born again virgins! Why not? After all, nothing bad ever happens to Sam and Dean!
If only that were true…..
Making the pledge, however, doesn't seem to do the trick. While Dean's off with their new….virgin group councilor, Sam and Jody get down to research. The creature's still undetermined, but they have noticed a pattern. Those weren't virgins being taken. They were born agains who broke their new little vows. And guess what Dean's off doing? Yep….turns out the councilor isn't all she claims to be…but hey, retired porn stars sometimes turn over a new leaf!
Their actions get them captured, and soon Sam and Jody have to find them before it's too late. They're not dealing with a dragon, but, rather, the Roman Goddess Vesta. Vesta demands virgin sacrifices. But she'll settle for virgins that break their vows, because, hey! Can't be too picky in the year 2013….
Jody and Sam eventually find where Dean and the other's were being kept. Just as they're about to open the hatch and let them out, Vesta attacks. Sam's thrown and knocked out (noticing a pattern?) and Jody's about to be Goddess chow….she even get's stabbed in the chest before Sam tackles the deity and saves the Sheriff. Vesta is about to make lunch of Sam when she stops and takes a better look at him. Little Sammy isn't fairing so well, and the Goddess says he shouldn't even be alive (Zeke's got some explaining to do!). Jody stabs Vesta from behind. Dean finally breaks the hatch open, and the other captives go free….
In the end, Jody's patched up and leaves the boys. Sam confesses that things aren't alright with him, to Dean. Then again, Sam's always felt like he's never been right. Dean's about to tell him the truth, that he's got an angel inside him, when Zeke appears and tells Dean that's not a good idea….so Dean doesn't tell Sam the truth.
Am I the only one not trusting Ezekiel and his intentions? Because, when a Goddess says Sam shouldn't be alive, then…clearly somethings wrong...
With each episode, I end up loving Dean more and more. If it’s not the wise cracks that he makes day in and day out, it’s the fact that he always remains true to character. It was hilariously awesome that he and Sam took a purity pledge for the case that they were on. Here they thought that it was Dragons who were taking the girls but instead it was a Goddess. Too bad Dean was thinking with his other head when he found out that the counselor was actually a former porn star that he used to idolize. I loved it when Sam told Jody that Dean had “marked one of his things off of his bucket list.” It’s not the first time that Dean has had to be saved by Sam because he was thinking with his other head.
I’m glad that Jody came back for an episode. She’s one of my favorites and I’m glad that they haven’t had the heart to kill her off. Not that they haven’t tried with the whole Leviathan and Crowley things.
However I am with Shae on the fact that I don’t trust Ezekiel. Evidently he’s not healing Sam. When Dean tried to come clean with Sam and what had happened to him, Ezekiel stopped him. Something fishy is going on and I have a feeling that we will find out soon what exactly is happening.
Either way, I’m glad that the old hunts are happening again. I really missed those.
