Sep 16, 2014 No Comments by

When Robert Bloch came to Hollywood in the early 1960s, he did so as an already accomplished and acclaimed author. In this regard, Bloch was nothing new. Plenty of writers, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and William Faulkner, had chosen a similar career path. But unlike Fitzgerald, who washed out in Hollywood as an alcoholic […]

Sledge Movie Review

Sep 11, 2014 No Comments by

The horror comedy is a venerable genre in its own right. For as long as there have been horror films, there have been movies spoofing them – from Abbott and Costello facing the black-and-white movie monsters to Cabin in the Woods and Knights of Badassdom toying with our expectations of the genre, these movies are […]

Interview with Ditch Day Massacre stars Bill Oberst Jr., Katy Foley and Zach Silverman

Sep 09, 2014 No Comments by

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with not one, but three awesome people involved in the film Ditch Day Massacre, an homage to ‘80s-era slasher films produced by Water Tree Media.  Ditch Day Massacre is a simple tale of revenge pitted against some clueless teenagers…or is it?  I can’t say much more without […]

As Above So Below Movie Review

Sep 04, 2014 No Comments by

As Above, So Below got 33% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is at once accurate and grossly unfair.  As Above. . . combines, rather ingeniously, an Indiana Jones-like archaeological adventure with found-footage horror.  It will not answer all your questions, and there’s no punchline or twist.  It’s weird from its brilliant beginning in Iran through its […]

Before zombies, vampires, and werewolves, there were witches. There are many parts of the world where one can still be unceremoniously murdered over simply an accusation of witchcraft.

When most people hear “Wisconsin” there are a few things that come immediately to mind.  The Great Lakes state located in the Unites States’ Midwest region is composed of green rolling hills, farms, and forests.  It boasts the world’s most primo cheeses, an absurd number of beers (and beer-drinkers), and of course the Green Bay […]

First Slashes: THIRTEEN WOMEN and the Dark History of the First Slasher Film

Aug 19, 2014 No Comments by

Whenever the term “first” gets bandied about, make sure you have plenty of salt ready. Usually, whenever something is called the “first,” then a million outraged voices come from the woodwork in order to point out that, in actuality, there was something before the “first.” Therefore, when I call Thirteen Women “the first slasher film,” […]
