Don’t rush to pack your suitcase, it’s not exactly the romantic vacation spot. But Hamilton Ohio is, quaint. A small river town close to Miami University, revered for its drinking water? Idk🤷🏽 I needed a getaway.
Now, this movie guy likes to scout locations by running them. So that’s what he does, admiring the evergreen lawns and white picket fences while listening to Mitski and other monstrosities through his earbuds, wondering if this is how Carpenter or Lynch felt when they inked the first pages of their masterpieces.
I have no plans to write another horror story. And certainly no plans to write a masterpiece. But as I observe the playgrounds, yards strewn with Iron Man action figures, skateboards and squirt guns, as a cool breeze kisses my cheek with the slightest hint of lake-effect moisture, I get a feeling that some idea is condensing in the ether.
