Cody shares a few more of the videos he has written for JoBlo Horror Originals.

I have been writing news articles and film reviews for for several years, and for the last couple years I have also been writing scripts for videos that are released through the site's YouTube channel JoBlo Horror Originals. Recently I started writing video scripts for the JoBlo Originals YouTube channel as well. I have previously shared the videos I wrote that covered

Three more videos that I have written the scripts for can be seen below, and this time all three were for the JoBlo Horror Originals channel.

For the WTF Happened to This Horror Movie video series, I dug into the making of John Carpenter's 1982 sci-fi horror classic The Thing. I packed so much information into this script, some of it didn't make it into the video. To read a whole lot of interesting information on the making of The Thing, check out the producer's blog The Original Fan.

For the Best Horror Movie You Never Saw video series, I wrote about the 1988 film Monkey Shines, directed by one of my all-time favorite filmmakers, George A. Romero: 

And for the WTF Happened to This Horror Movie series I also wrote about director Sean S. Cunningham's 1980 classic Friday the 13th. Since the information about the franchise's connection to the Italian movie Twitch of the Death Nerve didn't make it into the video I wrote about Friday the 13th Part 2, I tried to get it into this video as well. And it got cut for time. I'm just not meant to get that info into a video. Since I feel that Friday the 13th doesn't get as much respect as it deserves, I also did a whole lot more gushing over the movie than what made it into the video:

More video scripts have been written, so another batch of videos will be shared here on Life Between Frames eventually. In the meantime, keep an eye on JoBlo Horror Originals and JoBlo Originals!
