I grew up loving his iconic roles in “Aliens” and “Near Dark,” and thought his complex performance in “Nightcrawler” (2014) was amazing. Nightcrawler (Blu-ray + DVD + DIGITAL HD with UltraViolet) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00Q3DMJZW/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_c_api_GaWSybNK91NF3
My latest short fiction, KILL FEE, is in this amazing anthology, available now in paperback and digital: amazon.com/dp/0998651206/… #Amazon
Recommended: Cool-looking 70s psychedelic vampire film by Bill Gunn starring Duane Jones! Re-made/updated recently by @SpikeLee as “Da Sweet Blood of Jesus”

Reading Monster, a series of graphic novels by Naoki Urasawa – In Cold War-era Germany, brilliant surgeon Kenzo Tenma couldnt’t have known that his decision to stop chasing professional success and instead concentrate on his oath to save peoples’ lives would result in the birth of an abomination. Years later, middle-aged childless couples are being killed…
A collected series of comic strips by Daniel Clowes (Ghost World) – The structure reminds me of Peyton Place by Grace Metalious. A solemn, insightful and often funny meditation on the failure of human communication and the deadening isolation and frustration which result.
