‘The Mary Lous’ Will Rock You! (Music Video and Interview)

The Mary Lous

I don’t know about you, but I’m always aching for some horror with my rock n’ roll. You can have one without the other, I suppose…but isn’t peanut butter always better with a little bit of jelly in the sandwich? The Mary Lous are, above all, avid horror fans. Their debut video, “I Wish Bruce Campbell Was My Boyfriend” is not only proof of their devotion, but an open love letter to the groovy guy with the boomstick. The video is directed by Dylan Mars Greenberg (Dark Prism, ReAgitator: RevengeRead More

‘The Hornet’s Disciple and the Scars She Left’ (Review)

The Hornet’s Disciple and the Scars She Left

It’s a crying shame we live in a world where fans of hardcore horror know all about The Human Centipede, Flowers of Flesh and Blood, August Underground, and every goddamn Saw sequel…but no one seems to be talking about Dustin Wayde Mills. Look, I get it. You probably don’t know the name. And why would you? It’s not like indie filmmakers get the credit they deserve even when they exceed our expectations and grab the genre by the balls. On top of that, review sites don’t typically do more thanRead More

Midsummer’s Bottom (Book Review)

Midsummer's Bottom

I think I’ve found my favorite book of 2018. When I received Darren Dash’s latest novel, Midsummer’s Bottom, I already knew I was in for a treat. Here’s an author who’s never let me down no matter what name he’s writing under (Darren Shan, Darren O’Shaughnessy, and D.B. Shan are some others). Dash’s previous book, An Other Place, was a delightfully mad gonzo romp, and while promoting Midsummer’s Bottom he promised it would be even more experimental and out of left field. So what treats does Mr. Dash have inRead More

Space Cadets: The Legend of Goliathon (2017)


Although the next Star Wars spinoff movie doesn’t come out until mid-2018, you don’t have to wait to get your next space opera fix. And unlike Disney’s cash cow franchise, this immediately-accessible option doesn’t rely on cinematic eye candy. In fact, Space Cadets takes a bold risk by relying completely on the listener’s imagination to carry the epic story, and as the explosive first episode proves, the risk pays off. Space Cadets is a serialized radio space opera available through iTunes and most podcast apps. The first season tells “TheRead More

Victor Crowley (2017) – Premiere Review

Victor Crowley

Let me make this clear from the get-go: I am a huge fan of Adam Green and of ArieScope Pictures. If you’re seeking a review of Victor Crowley (i.e., Hatchet IV) written with 100% objectivity, I urge you to look elsewhere, because I’m gushing so hard with fanboy love that the letters on my keyboard are slowly dissolving away. Before I continue, let me offer you a last chance to leave this website and go visit Facebook or PornHub instead, before things get too gushy… …Good, you stayed. Your rewardRead More

Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary (2017)

Trailer for The Path to Pet Sematary

Full disclosure: Pet Sematary is one of my all-time favorite horror movies, and by far my favorite adaptation of a Stephen King book. I’m hardly alone in this opinion; Mary Lambert’s 1989 masterpiece seems to garner a strong reaction from every horror buff, and simply screeching “Rachel!” may send a shiver up their spine. Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary, offers an in-depth look behind the magic that went into making such a timeless horror classic. Directors John Campopiano and Justin White have put tremendous effort into makingRead More

Devil Lives Here, The (2016)

The Devil Lies Here (2016)

Directed by Rodrigo Gasparini and Dante Vescio Starring Pedro Carvalho, Ivo Muller, Sidney Santiago, Clara Verdier The Devil Lives Here is the kind of movie that’ll make modern horror directors jealous. Sounds like a hot and steaming load of hype, right? Granted, it’s a pretty big claim, but it’s one I’m willing to bet the farm on. The deck is loaded against this indie gem—the language is Portuguese with English subtitles; the directors, Rodrigo Gasparini and Dante Vescio, have no mainstream fan base; it’s a direct-to-DVD movie no one’s heardRead More

She Who Must Burn (2015)

She Who Must Burn Cover

  Starring Sarah Smyth, Shane Twerdun, Jewel Staite, Missy Cross Directed by Larry Kent   Let’s get one thing crystal clear: Larry Kent, director of She Who Must Burn, doesn’t sugarcoat a goddamn thing. He doesn’t shy away from discussing issues like abortion and rape, nor does he charge at them with the heavy-handedness of a liberal arts freshman. He doesn’t offer breaks for decompression. He doesn’t put a single quip or funny moment in his movie. Most importantly, Larry Kent doesn’t give a shit if this bothers you. You’reRead More

Dark Prism (2015)

Dark Prism - Internet Poster 2

Dark Prism may just be the most fun I’ve ever had clawing my eyes out in stark raving madness. The director, Dylan Mars Greenberg, acts as both a master of madness and curator for experiences you won’t find elsewhere. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a true “experience” movie. You know the types of movie I’m referring to—Cannibal Holocaust, Salo, Pink Flamingos, Naked Lunch, Rubber. Movies that create major dividing lines; movies that draw you in with a word-of-mouth guarantee you won’t feel quite the same upon viewing;Read More
