The 3rd Hammer-Amicus Blogathon – Day 2 Recap


The Hammer-Amicus Blogathon- Tales from the Crypt

We’re back for the second day of the 3rd Hammer-Amicus Blogathon, hosted by Yours Truly and Gill Jacob of Realweegiemidget Reviews. While the quantity of entries is somewhat smaller than Day 1, there’s no skimping on quality. Here, you’ll find mysteries, folk horror, a “lost” TV series, and even a scrumptious celebrity recipe. 

If you plan to participate but you’re not quite ready, we’ll post your link on day three. Post a comment below, email me at, or reach me on Twitter (@barry_cinematic). You may also contact Gill by commenting on her post, through her blog’s Contact Me page, or on Twitter (@realweegiemidge). 

In addition to today’s posts, be sure to visit the Day 1 Recap, and stay tuned for Day 3!

  1. I wouldn't go as far to say "saving the best for last"...perhaps the strangest is more fitting :)

    1. Great! I'll add your post to my Day 3 Recap. Thanks for joining the blogathon.
