Boy, do I have the macabre treat for you. We'll start our literary matinee with two stories that are actually suitable for your knee-high offspring. During intermission, we'll explore death in art... More > and reality by taking a closer look at the adapted book Into the Wild. After that, it's back inside the auditorium for Vigil's feature presentation: the titular novella-as-screenplay, which takes place in the world of The Lady Scorned (featured in Monstruos). Vigil is neither sequel nor prequel. This standalone piece chronicles the adventures of Matthew Stanford, a disillusioned college dropout in hot pursuit of the undead bastards who killed his main squeeze's kid sister.
While we wait for the bus to take us home, college student Nancy Strickland will provide entertainment by giving us her two cents on Lars von Trier's film Antichrist, Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Saga, and James Nguyen's so-bad-it's-good environmental horror film Birdemic.
Sounds good? Dig in!

The cost of college has risen faster than inflation for a generation, doubling about every ten years. In 2005-2006, one year’s average tuition at private colleges topped $21,235. For the... More > 2007-2008 school year, that bill is estimated to be $23,850. If the trend continues, by 2010-2011, students will have to pay $28,400 per year. And since costs continue increasing each successive year, that is at least $124,240 for four years.
Paying for college isn’t just expensive; it’s also complicated.
