Hope everyone had a great New Years celebration!


Yes, it's a bit late, but I hope all you Pacific Northwest Horror/Sci Fi/Fantasy Fans had a wonderful New Years celebration.  I would have wished you this sooner, but the problems I hoped were resolved in late 2019 decided to follow me into 2020.  So instead of watching the ball drop, I felt like it hit me in the face.

Ready to start the New Year Eve countdown, BOOOOOOYYYYYY?

While those problems have yet to be laid to rest, at least I've got enough dirt on top of them to provide a bit of a reprieve and get The Shadow Over Portland back in order.  I've got the Horror/Sci Fi/Fantasy Calendar updated, but you'll want to keep checking back as I find more movies, festivals and cons coming to the Pacific Northwest this year.

But let's talk this edition of the Weekly Update.  The big news is Richard Stanley's adaptation of H. P. Lovecraft's Color Out of Space is coming to theaters next weekend and, while I've only found two screenings so far, expect more to be added soon.  And if you get the chance to see it in theaters, do so.  It's amazing.

Experience Theater Project in Beaverton, OR, is bringing The Strange Case of Dr. Jeykll and Mr. Hyde to the stage, only this time, the action takes place in a 1800s gold rush town.  Also, Friday Night Frights will screen Frozen (the horror film, NOT the Disney musical!) this weekend, and Horrific: A Night of Horror Themed Belly Dance takes to the stage next weekend, both in Tacoma, WA.  You'll find more information and links for these events, and much more, down below.

If you have an event you want listed on the site, just email me the details and promotional artwork at shadowoverportland@live.com and I'll post it as soon as possible.  And my prices haven't gone up this year, which means having your event on site is still FREE!

From Ashland, OR, to Vancouver, BC, The Shadow Over Portland has you covered!

Time to get into the holiday spirit with this edition of the Weekly Update!


What, you thought I'd post a picture of Santa?

I'm posting this edition of the Weekly Update a day earlier, as I don't want anyone to miss out on The Portland Horror Trivia Massacre, which I recently added to the calendar.  And, while tickets for tonight's screening of Silent Night, Deadly Night at the Hollywood Theatre are still available, that probably won't be the case for long, so if you want to go, buy a ticket soon!

As for the rest of the month, I've posted every event I could find in December down below.  And most of them are movies, ranging from family fantasies to dystopian horrors, holiday scares to Die Hard, you'll also find details on the Dark Solstice show on Saturday, December 21, just to add a bit of variety.

But it's the Horror/Sci Fi/Fantasy Calendar that you'll want to check out.  I've found a lot of great events, from movies to cons, bazaars to geeky stage shows, coming in 2020.  Be sure to take a look and to keep checking back, as I add events as quick as I find them.

If you want your event listed on the site, email me with the details and promotional artwork at shadowoverportland@live.com, and I'll get it posted as soon as possible.  Best of all, you won't be charged for it.

And now, to get you in the holiday spirit, here's an animated version of A Christmas Carol to enjoy.  For some reason, it wasn't one of the more popular holiday specials to come out of the 70s, even with Alastair Sims returning to the role of Scrooge and the film winning the Oscar from Best Animated Short Film after a theatrical run.  I think the reason it's been overlooked by many is the short follows Dicken's work very closely, as it's dark and the ghosts are damn creepy!  Enjoy!!

I'm back...


I want to start by apologizing for my unexpected hiatus.  Unfortunately, most of last month involved dealing with a host of issues, both in my personal life and at the day job.  Throw in a nasty cold to start out December, and I can honestly say I spent the last forty days feeling all my energy, inspiration and creativity squeezed out of me like toothpaste from a tube.

Yep, it was kind of like this...
except it happened every freaking day!

But I'm back at the computer now, with several projects I wanted to finish before New Year waiting for me, and a lot of catching up to do at The Shadow Over Portland.  I've been working to update the Horror/Sci Fi/Fantasy Calendar, and while I'm know a few events are still out there, I think I've most of the Pacific Northwest genre events covered for the coming week.  And remember, if you know of one I missed, you can email me at shadowoverportland@live.com with the details and promotional art, and I will list it on the site for FREE.

If I missed your event while I was gone, I apologize and promise to make certain the next one gets on the site.  And I'm sorry I wasn't able to post any Weekly Updates last month.  But The Shadow Over Portland is back and will continue to keep fans up to date on all the great Pacific Northwest Horror/Sci Fi/Fantasy Events into 2020 and beyond!
