This is the work of famed photographer Hermando Rivaldi, an artist with a unique gift to summon the dead. Join Hermando as he takes a walk through his latest exhibition and hear the tales of his wondrous life, the spirits he’s encountered, and the woman he can never forget…

After his inexplicable transformation, Will must adjust to his new life as a werewolf, learning to balance being both a nocturnal creature and an aspiring journalist.

    Minisode 85: Script Rippers!!! (Morbius)

    Minisode 85: Script Rippers!!! (Morbius)

    In this PMT Miniseries, Hobert and Mike sit down to tear apart a movie they didn’t like so they can put it back together. They’re not script doctors, they’re script butchers. In this episode they try to inject some life into Morbius (the living vampire), an anemic action romp with way too much Jared Leto in it. Join the rippers as they reimagine Morbius as a patient character study about a doctor driven to kill, a pair of budding vampire hunters, and the woman he loves across a cursed century of blood and medicine. That sounds way better, right? And he’s Jewish now!
