Early Morning Horror Reviews is written by Whorer Fan, usually within the blue hours of the morning, when everything is quiet and eerie and there is no sunshine to ruin the mood. Her reviews are short, sarcastic, and sometimes very careful to make fun of as many painful details as possible. She enjoys good-bad horror films the most, collecting Halloween costumes and items, and having theme nights. She is afraid of spiders and dummies/ marionettes. See more here

My mom is a Stephen King novel lover, and out of all the choices available to me, lined up on the wall in my alternate playroom, I chose Tommyknockers to read as my first horror novel. I have no idea why, I think I liked the green on the cover. I did not, however, enjoy the green in the movie as much, though it was probably pretty cool at the time. There are green names, green beams coming from pens and lipsticks, green glow everywhere, and it got to the point where I was seeing red. The acting was mediocre at best but I loved how dramatic the main woman was. And Jimmy Smitt. That’s all that needs to be said. Just his name. Even though this was an S.K. miniseries such as It, this one wasn’t nearly as long, and it’s unintentionally ridiculous, so that’s always a bonus. It’s basically about a woman who becomes obsessed with digging up alien Lego in the forest. Soon the whole town joins in the fun, and the only one who can stop this madness is our good friend, Jimmy.
