Worldhoppers Guild is very excited to feature Bob Gunner’s original short fiction, Double-Feature Midnight Movie. The spooky tale was written in 2003 and was originally published as one of the stories in the former Cyber-Pulp Press anthology “Halloween 2.0”.

Bob speaks about this story best: “As a child my mom would take my two younger sisters and I to a local theater for the horror double-features. Lots of Hammer and B-rated gems guaranteed to give any kid nightmares for weeks. I always wondered why very few people watched the films from the upstairs balcony during the night showings. Only one or two seemed brave enough to sit up there all alone. In my imagination, I felt it was probably because there might be something unmentionable that dwells up there in the darkness…”.
