The Diary of a Troubled Faery "Twisted Tales: Hansel and Gretel, the True Story"

Here for the first time is the truth about Hansel and Gretel, and the first of many twisted tales I have collected over many years and from many places.
One night a very, very, very long time ago I happened upon a small village near Hanau, Germany. This was during one of my jaunts around Europe to see what kind of chaos I could cause. I entered a small dark inn located near the outskirts of the village. I took my rest in a far corner of the room, my back to the wall to "assess" the surroundings. They were very typical for the time, plain basic wood tables with benches, a few smaller tables with roughly hewn chairs, central fire for warmth, and a basic bar with stools near the front of the inn. There were stairs as well that led up to quarters for travelers. Very few candles, which is fine by me as I prefer the dark. The inn floor was strewn with hay and sweet almond to lessen the stench of unbathed men and beasts.

As I was making these observations a serving wench made her w…

A Travel Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse: Locations 1 & 2

On your commute home from work, your favourite radio station interrupts the music for an emergency bulletin. Your worst fears have come to pass: you are in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. The military have lost control, whole cities, towns, and villages are aflame and burning to the ground.

Everyone you love is dead, well, undead, I should say.

You are alone, completely and utterly alone.

The dead are rising, looking for fresh human flesh to gorge on.

They will get you - or will they?

Well, not if you know where to go to hide. Not if you had some sort of guide. A guide that would save you the time and trouble of trying to figure out for yourself where the best and worst places are to seek refuge during a zombie apocalypse.

Are you prepared? Or will you simply end up as food for the undead?

A Travel Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse is finally here. (Don't be fooled by imitations.)

Each location has a brain rating of 0-5. The more brains, the better your chances.

After all, it'…

Upcoming Horror Films in 2017

Hello, hell hounds. If you're like me, you want to be in the know about all of the sinister, frightening, gory, and macabre movies that have already come out that you've missed, and the ones yet to come so that you don't miss those as well.

Well, guess what? I've scoured and dug deep in the abyss of movie making to find these gems. Trust me, minions, there's a little something for every twisted taste this year, including some blockbusters. I'm sure it's not an exhaustive list, but it should help stave off those horror movie hunger pangs.

Interview: Harrison Smith: Death House Movie

In a world full of zombie and demon movies, Harrison Smith and Entertainment Factory have dared to do something different.

That's right, my creepy cohorts: not zombies, sparkly vampires, lame emo werewolves, bad interpretations of skin walkers, fake demon possessions, or post-apocalyptic, unbelievable nonsense. Can you say spooky, evil, government experimentation in an old, sinister-looking, turn of the century prison?  Throw in a who's who of horror icons, and you've got the potential for one Hell of a movie, possibly quite literally.

But I don't want to give too much away.

The movie, Death House, doesn't come out 'til 2017, but when it does, make sure you give it a watch. Until then, I think I'll have to drink some nightshade, and lock myself in my tomb so I don't implode from anticipation. It's been far too long since I've been frightened by a horror movie, and I'm pretty sure this is going to be the one to do it for me. The anticipati…

Where Are They Now? Catching Up with Actor Nathan Head

It's been a while since I chatted with Nathan Head, my freaky fiends, and he is still one of my faves to not only interview, but to watch in all his splendeur effrayant. With roles ranging from terrifying clowns, psychopaths, demon possessed, the living dead, to a bit in a Dr. Who episode, Nathan has proven time and again in all his endevours what a great character actor he is.

Nathan also has been one busy boy, and involved in some very exciting projects. Want to know how busy? Well, just continue reading and you shall see my pets!

Lili's Lair: It's been several year since your first interview here. What's been your favourite project in that time, and why?

Nathan Head: Well there’s been a few, I’m exceptionally proud of Theatre Of Fear (aka The Midnight Horror Show), which came out in 2014 in the UK and 2015 in North America. It got a good release and was even in the UK DVD charts for two weeks and released in 3D in cinemas in Germany. But I also enjoyed working on that…
