MESSAGE FROM HORROR BOB:
I know some of you miss me running the site. It has been almost two years since I last wrote a review. Some of you still want me to write, but the fact of the matter is that it is time for me to move on to bigger and better things. I know I said I was going to launch a new site focusing on horror book reviews, but that is not going to happen either. I have sold all rights to the The Horror Review and its properties to Journal Stone Publishing which plans on making the site bigger and better than it ever was. Already, under them The Horror Review facebook page has over 5700 likes. Look for them to re-launch the site soon.
To everyone still sending me e-mails about doing possible reviews; I am sorry. I am very busy working on my next venture which just happens to be a Web series that we are trying to turn into a television series. In Fear Of is the name of the series and for more information on it please visit: http://infearoftheseries.com. We have recently competed a pilot episode, and are aggressively shopping the series around. Please spread the word.
Well, I have never been one for good byes, and it has been hard to let the The Horror Review go, but I just wanted to thank each and everyone of you who supported the site under my reign for the past decade and a half. It has been a real wild ride and the site will always be in my heart. I simply just could not let it fade into the darkness like so many other horror sites have. It was one of the first horror sites on the web and it will live on under the Journal Stone Publishing banner. Please read the press release below and look out for the the new Horror Review website coming soon.

The Horror Review Site was one of the first Horror, Science Fiction, and Fantasy movie review websites. Started in March of 1999, the site only featured genre reviews in a short format to make for the on the go reader. In 2002 the format changed to the longer basic reviews, featured more content such as book reviews, interviews, and essays. The crew also grew as the sites creator, Horror Bob (Robert L. Brodmerkel) had a staff that featured members of the film industry, college professors, mega fans and even fiction writers. The site respectfully ended its run in 2013, after thirteen years on the internet. Now it will rise from the grave, being reanimated by the fine folks at JournalStone Publishing.
Horror Bob (Robert L. Brodmerkel) is the founder of The Horror Review (horrorreview.com) Now that the touch has been pasted on, his new venture is working on the popular Web series “In Fear Of”.

Brodmekel is now a series producer along with Perry and Tony DeBenedetto (Jacob, She Rises).
