The Night of the living dead

Horror movies have not only been merely tools of entertainment, as it might appear today. Nowadays horror movies are meticulously planned with well crafted scenic designs, stunning photography, and “bu”-effects that aim at keeping the tension high. There was a time instead when real life fears were narrate through grim symbolisms. In this respect, Zombies … Continue reading The Night of the living dead

“My God is the God of the wayfarers”

I am not a religious person. I was raised Catholic, I did all the Church steps till I was a teenager. Then I started to think, and I realized that I did not find myself in that. I believe in humans. I believe that their abilities are far bigger than we realize. I believe that … Continue reading “My God is the God of the wayfarers”

Soul concussions

I always hated the people that were talking or living life as a movie/song quote. You know, this kind of people that when life sucked answered "It cannot rain all the time" (cit. for the movie "The Crow"). It sounded so superficial and childish. I remember that when I was a teenager a couple of … Continue reading Soul concussions

Dreams
