 Unmasked: The True Life Story of The World's Most Profilic, Cinematic Killer by Kane Hodder and Michael Aloisi


Unmasked documents the unlikely true story of a boy who was taunted and beaten relentlessly by bullies throughout his childhood. Kane only escaped his tormentors when he moved to a tiny island in the South Pacific where he lived for all of his teen years. After living shirtless in a jungle for a while, he headed back to America where he fell in love with doing stunts-only to have his love burn him, literally. For the first time ever, Kane tells the true story of the horrific burn injury that nearly killed him at the start of his career. The entire heart-wrenching, inspirational story of his recovery, the emotional and physical damage it caused, his fight to break back into the industry that almost killed him, and his triumphant rise to become a film legend are told in Kane's own powerful voice. Take a peek inside the head of the man behind the mask. Be inspired by his triumphant comeback and laugh at his on-set hijinks as you unmask the world's most prolific, cinematic killer.

Random Thoughts

Never heard about Kane Hodder, you say? I don't believe you, 'cause I'm pretty sure you've seen him in one or more movies. You are probably just not aware of it. 'Cause he is a famous stuntman who has been Jason Voorhees (from the Friday the 13th movies). There have been different men to be Jason but no one has been Jason more times than Kane Hodder. So, that's his most known and biggest role. But he is also known as Victor Crowley (from the Hatchet movies), and he is not only doing acting. His main job is of course stunts and he has been doing stunts in movies like Se7en, Frozen, The Fan, and many more. Us horror fans who grew up with horror/scary movies recognize him, even in very small roles as in Frozen .He seems like a fun and characteristic guy.

 Darkness, tell us by Richard Laymon


At an end-of-term college party, six students come across a Ouija board. When a spirit called Butler tells them of a fortune hidden in the mountains, they head off on a two-day hike into the wilderness, where any danger may lie in wait to cut and slice and tear them limb from limb.

I have read some Richard Laymon books before and I love them. It's not serious horror but pure fun and thrilling books. I wish to read more books by him soon.

I'm not a serial killer by Dan Wells


John Wayne Cleaver is dangerous, and he knows it.

He’s spent his life doing his best not to live up to his potential.

He’s obsessed with serial killers, but really doesn’t want to become one. So for his own sake, and the safety of those around him, he lives by rigid rules he’s written for himself, practicing normal life as if it were a private religion that could save him from damnation.

Dead bodies are normal to John. He likes them, actually. They don’t demand or expect the empathy he’s unable to offer. Perhaps that’s what gives him the objectivity to recognize that there’s something different about the body the police have just found behind the Wash-n-Dry Laundromat---and to appreciate what that difference means.

Now, for the first time, John has to confront a danger outside himself, a threat he can’t control, a menace to everything and everyone he would love, if only he could.

Dan Wells’s debut novel is the first volume of a trilogy that will keep you awake and then haunt your dreams.
