LEADFOOT By Eric Beetner

LEADFOOT Eric Beetner 280 STEPS November 1, 2016 In May of 2015, Eric Beetner brought the McGraw clan roaring onto the page behind the wheel of a high-toned muscle car, hell-bent for leather in his novel RUMRUNNERS. The McGraws have always been transporters for the Stanley family, Iowa’s local organized crime family. If the Stanleys needed something brought from here to there, be it sitting in the passenger seat or tied up in the trunk, a McGraw would be the one to drive it there. It doesn’t matter what happens when they arrive: McGraws don’t...

Five Favorite Things – Horror Movies from new Mulholland author, Scott Reardon

1. The Exorcist The Exorcist has the best setup of any horror film. It uses the decency of the characters and the stark realism of the dialogue and the cinematography to suck you in. Father Karras’s goodness, guarded as it is, is something you feel just by looking at his face. He’s suffering over the death of his mother, and he’s questioning his faith in God. He represents most of us, I think, in that he sees how the existence of God gives life meaning, and yet he simply can’t get himself to believe. He has a depth I always wished to see in a...

AMERICAN HONEY Reviewed

Written and Directed by Andrea Arnold Starring Sasha Lane, Shia LaBeouf, Riley Keough Andrea Arnold’s American Honey brilliantly captures the aimless, lost generation now designated the millennials. This is a road picture that finds no romance on the road itself, but only in the gyrating bodies and music of a vagabond group of magazine salesmen lead by its quasi-cult leader, Krystal. We make the journey along with Star, a nineteen year old with no place to go and nothing to do although none of the dozen youth in her van sees life very...
