He's crazy alright. Crazy brilliant and crazy hilarious.
Relatively unknown due to a lack of self-promotion, Vardulon's credo is "write harder," a fitting aphorism for a professional writer. In between being anything but laconic concerning the latest episode of CSI: Miami or Criminal Minds, Vardulon spends his nights hating everything and voicing his opinions about it. Given my relative distaste for many horror films, I have often been accused on "not liking movies;" Vardulon takes it to the extreme, but manages to stand out from the pack by providing a healthy mix of opinion, humor and intelligence, the combination of which is a rare treat.
Blog highlights include a running commentary on why the new Indiana Jones film is terrible and the Saw diaries, a film-by-film account of all six Saw films. Beyond writing he co-hosts the AVOD with the Dive Mistress, the Internet's first audio-only video podcast, on which I have been a guest two, count 'em TWO times!
There are a LOT of horror blogs out there, but if you choose to read only a small handful, Castle Vardulon should be on that list. His irreverent humor and unabashed vitriol for the foul writing that plagues television and cinema makes for a damned entertaining read.
