Even a man who is pure at heart...

I've been keeping my hopes up about the upcoming remake of The Wolf Man. From what I've seen, the effects look pretty good, the cast is awesome (Anthony Hopkins AND Elrond?? Sweet!) and the director knows his stuff. He helmed The Rocketeer which introduced young Marcus to the glory that was Jennifer Connelly in that low-cut ball gown, so I'll forgive him for his participation in the Young Indiana Jones fiasco. Here's the new trailer!

I really like the way they kept the feel of the old movie and didn't try to set it in modern day. It seems to have that same creepy, European fairy tale kind of setting of all the classic Universal monster movies. "Terrible things, Lawrence. You've done terrible things." Ohhh yeah.

This is what happens without editors

I'm Marcus Pelegrimas, author of the SKINNERS series. Here you'll find various ramblings about movies, video games, TV, and...oh yeah...those books I write. If there's anything you'd like to discuss, just let me know. I try to update whenever the mood strikes me, so feel free to leave comments. There may be some occasional foul language, but anyone who's too easily offended probably doesn't read my stuff anyway.

Free Stuff

Here's how it goes. As usual, I've got my truckload of promo covers from EOS Books. I'll be going to some conventions, so I hope to see you there and I'll gladly sign your books. If you can't make it to a con, just email me your name, address and any inscription so I can send you a signed cover.

BONUS ---> If you would be so kind as to write up a review for any or all Skinners books and publish it on a site like, Barnes & Noble, Borders, or any other major review site, I can send you something extra. I made up some bookmarks (which I'll sign) and I've even put together some Shimmy's VIP passes (which I'll also sign). Can't guarantee the passes will get you into a real strip club, but I think they look pretty cool. Send me a link to your review along with your name, address and inscription, and I'll get these out to you as well.
