Welcome to Me-Me Monday. Today, I want to hear all about your guilty pleasures. I’ll start with a few of mine to whet your whistles. Then, I’ll open the floor to let you share your guilty pleasures.
Something to remember: there is no shame here at Full-Tilt Backwoods Boogie. You’ve finally reached the place where having lurid tastes wins you a gold star. Being scarily lurid wins you dinner at my house…and I’m a good cook.
I have my DVR set to record this wonderful little show every Saturday night. The premise is simple. The suspicious lover or spouse contacts Cheaters and engages their detective services to bust an unfaithful partner.
The Cheaters detectives, armed with hidden cameras, follow the cheater all over town–usually Dallas but sometimes other large cities. After detectives gather enough “evidence,” Joey Greco reveals the findings to the betrayed. After that, the fight is on.
Books: Redneck Noir
I’m talking authors like Lisa Reardon, Daniel Woodrell, Joe R. Lansdale, J.D. Rhoades, and Larry Brown. These books don’t necessarily take place in the South, but they do star rednecks. Warning: these books are not for the faint of heart.
Next on my to-be-read list?
Blurb: Hap Collins and Leonard Pine return in a red-hot, mayhem-fueled thriller to face a vampire cult, the Dixie Mafia, and the deadliest assassin they’ve ever encountered—Devil Red.
Watch Joe R. Lansdale read from Devil Red:
Movies: Horror–Wrong Turn Sub-Genre
Wrong Turn is a made-up (by me) sub-genre of horror movies. The events unfold because the protagonists took a wrong turn or otherwise ended up in The Wrong Place™.
The Wrong Turn Sub-Genre includes movies like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Wrong Turn, House of Wax, Vacancy, Wolf Creek, Psycho, Children of the Corn, and The Hills Have Eyes. Race with the Devil gets an honorable mention.
On my wish list:
