The Wolf

Another sneak peak at what I’m submitting to the ABCs of Horror. At this time I am done creating written material, and am working on submitting the visuals.

Cheers!

‘B’

Yes, ‘B’–as in another sneak peak into our ABCs of Horror! This is edit two of Penny’s entry. Enjoy!

B is for the girl who was caught by the beast

B is for the beast that enjoyed its feast.

B is for the bastard that dropped her off–in an unknown area, somewhere and nowhere,

Such a remote place, where none would see or even know her face

And where little would be left of her, not even a hair.

She’d cease to exist; she’d be gone without a trace.

She tripped up the hill on her way to an old homestead,

She had no time to scream: in a blink she was dead.

B is for the beast that bit through her bones,

Scattering them throughout the wild like they were nothing more than sticks and stones.

What New Horrors Should We Birth?

What New Horrors Should We Birth?

The Triad of Terror is now complete. Now, dear viewer: what next? What new project should we give birth to? Remember: with Team Monster, anything goes!

(Perhaps Theo needs some friends?)

The monster gave to me,

The Enigmatic Monster Issue 3!

EMP_issue3

(Go on, click it. Resistance is futile. <3 )

Here it is, in all of its sickly glory! The Triad of Terror is now complete. As we continue to  catch muses in the dark, we wonder what next year will bring? Hmmm . . .

For now we must play the game as we always have, and bring our nightmares to the surface world for all to see.

As always, spread us to the far corners of the world. Keep it monstrous!

P.S: If you do not want to download the PDF file, fear not! You’ll be able to read the 3rd issue online as well! Just look for The Triad of Terror in our top menu (that’s where we keep all of the goods)!

Poll, not pole . . . Sorry. (Theo was excited about dancing too.)

 

 

We’d like to make EMP better! We appreciate your help–keep it monstrous!

Live on Location

Live on Location

Where the Jake and Jon human interact with other humans. Intriguing . . . Hmmmmm, yes . . .

(Why the title? I assume it’s because I did not actually eat them, so they’re technically still alive. –Theo Monster)

Exasperated Sigh

Exasperated Sigh

EMPodcast episode 16. Theo Monster is not impressed. But is he ever? The Jake human gets in trouble, birds sing, the sun shines . . . And all of those nice things . . . 

Such High Contrasts

Such High Contrasts

Looking up, at the sun . . . Squinting. There was such a high contrast between light and dark up there, just as much as there was down here. What else was up there, besides clouds, the vacuum of space? Continue reading

EMPodcast episode 15. Thanks for the wait! Theo Monster loves you! Blah, blah, blah . . .

To the Faces In the Wall

To the faces in the wall: 

You never bothered to hide yourselves; no one cared that much for walls anyways. They turned a blind eye towards you.

That’s cheeky, you know.

I watch you all the time, but it never seems to bother you at all. Why should it? Who would believe that the walls really did have eyes and ears–that there were people living within them . . . People they couldn’t see?

I watch you all the time. Do you watch me too?

Or do you really care?

As for myself . . . I’m not sure what to feel, or even what to think about this.

It only scares me when I sleep.

Found and Lost

Found and Lost

IMG_0030

Jerry had been walking along the silent trail that morning, drinking in the solitude like it was a fine wine. This would be the only time left to himself before he started another long day of work; it was an office job, dull and demanding . . . And there was nothing more to say about that. Jerry’s mantra: work stays at work, home stays at home. And that’s how he had stayed sane after all these years.

The sun was just beginning to peak over the horizon–it was cool enough out that he wasn’t sweating. The bugs weren’t that bad today either, which suited Jerry fine. He hated bug spray, and steadfastly refused to wear it.

His foot caught on something on the trail, and Jerry took a fall that knocked the wind out of him. Thud! He hit the ground rather unceremoniously. Not that there was much ceremony in falling . . . Swearing under his breath, Jerry sat up; he looked long and hard behind him. There was something sticking up out of the ground, a branch probably . . . Maybe . . . Possibly? What the hell? Jerry crawled towards the branch. On closer inspection his breath caught.

What should he do? Jerry whipped his hat off and immediately began brushing the dirt with it, his whole body shaking as if with fever. He knew that he should call the police. Really, he did. But there was something that drove him to uncover the thing, a macabre sort of fascination. Jerry tossed the hat away and began to use his hands. This is insane, he said to himself. I’m sick, why don’t I just stop? 

Except . . . He couldn’t.

WHY ME? his mind screamed. At this point it felt as if he were no longer in control of his body, as if something had possessed him. He felt nausea growing within his stomach as more and more of the old corpse was uncovered. This is not a damn person, he realized as he scratched at the hard dirt. There’s no way in hell . . .

There was something different about the bone structure. Yes, it was humanoid, with certain differences here and there. The limbs were slightly elongated, the leg bones curved slightly more than a humans, the arms longer, the fingers longer . . . And the skull . . . That was the most alien of all. Longer and thinner than a normal human skull, and the jaw . . . It resembled an animal jaw, like that of a wolf.

Jerry finally tore himself away from the grisly find. He was drenched in sweat, and there was a horrible smell on his nostrils. It came from the bones, which had the colour and sheen of oil. Horrified he looked at his hands, which were cracked and bleeding from his frenzied, uncontrolled digging.

Without a second thought he picked up a large rock, smashing the skull, the ribs, the legs. When he was finished Jerry bolted back up the path in a daze.

He called in sick, and booked the month off.

Because Theo Monster watches you in your sleep. And then he bakes evil cookies when no one is watching. And when he’s done baking those vile cookies, he gives away free hugs, which is neither good nor bad  . . .

. . . And because we all downed a bottle or two of paranoia while we were putting the second issue together. Seriously, I’m not kidding you; there are more character deaths in this issue than there are in the first! And I’m pretty sure it wasn’t the horrible winter talking either . . .

Goodbye Me

Goodbye Me

Enigmatic Podcast number 12, a la Theo Monster; the Jon human has had some issues with his computer (silly human machines), so the the monster itself has come to grace all of you mere mortals with a temporary (meaning eternal) domination of your wills.

Theo Monster would also like to inform his followers of his recent metamorphosis: he has traded in five of his heads for all-seeing tentacles. Free hugs (for all) . . .

 . . . Also doubling as a look into my book collection!

I said it, and now it’s happened. The second instalment of Creature Feature, and the first look into my book collection (for real this time). Before I continue I’d just like to mention that my book collection is not big. It’s just big enough. With that being said, I’d like to introduce you to the talent known as James Gurney

You are not seeing things, you have in fact read the title correctly. As some of you may already know we are currently looking for more ways to improve the project for the next year. Yes, don’t forget, we’re still making a few more issues! We intend to go out with a bang, you know!

Starting tomorrow we will introduce a little side project . . . Book covers.

Oh yes, you are not seeing things; Penny will design book covers for some of the books she has read and reviewed for the project . . . She might even share a few covers from her personal book collection.

Have any thoughts or suggestions? Let us know!
