I'm interested in Richard Thomas's first novel, Transubstantiate, which is out this week. A Craig Clevenger blurb is promising. I bookmarked the sample chapter to read, I just read the first few paragraphs and was intrigued. (God, I've got to read The Passage at some point soon as well... seems really dense... I wish I were going to the woods or something, or an island. Too much stress right now. Can't think properly.) There's a giveaway on goodreads.
I saw The Killer Inside Me. It was pretty engaging but I don't know if I'd call it good. The most notable thing about it is that the infamous murder scene--which prompted film festival walkouts and outcry for its allegedly intolerable brutality--was relatively tame, no worse than anything in Eastern Promises or Casino, in fact not as bad as Casino. God forbid those who were outraged ever watch Irreversible or Martyrs.
