Anthologies from Hell, Part Two: The House That Dripped Blood After The Torture Garden, Bloch and Amicus would not make another film together for four years.

Read or Else: The Pumpkin Man by John Everson

Nov 13, 2014 No Comments by

You feel the dried page against your finger and hear a subtle crack as you gingerly turn it.  The book’s spine is stiff and you look down, taking in the yellowed paper.   In the dimly lit room you smile coyly to yourself.  The book is well-worn; others have held it before you and felt the […]

No Laughing Aloud: An Interview with Butterfly Skin Author Sergey Kuznetsov

Nov 11, 2014 No Comments by

Sergey Kuznetsov is a serious man. A seriously talented man, yes, but serious nonetheless. Butterfly Skin, Kuznetsov’s most recent novel, is a serial killer tale set in modern-day Moscow. Although at times graphically violent and even more graphically sexual, Kuznetsov wants to assure his readers that Butterfly Skin is about love. Well, love and violence, […]

The Butchers Movie Review

Nov 06, 2014 No Comments by

Director Steven Paul Judd’s The Butchers has a familiar premise: Strangers on a journey become mired in a strange situation. It’s a tale as old as the Canterbury Tales of Chaucer in the fourteenth century. However, instead of a storm and an inn, this tale involves a bus on its way to the Grand Canyon […]

Horns: Book vs. Movie

Nov 04, 2014 No Comments by

As a very big fan of Joe Hill’s sophomore novel Horns, I was awaiting Alexandre Aja’s film adaptation with much anticipation. Piranha and Haute Tension are great movies, showing a diversity of ability.  Even his weaker efforts such as Mirrors and The Hills Have Eyes remake are never dull, and his direction is always exciting […]

Ghoulies & Ghosties & Long-Leggedy Beasties X: Halloween 2014 Edition

Oct 30, 2014 No Comments by

Shit. I haven’t written a Ghoulies & Ghosties & Long-Leggedy Beasties column since June, which means that I owe you, Savage Readers.  In fact, by my calculations, I owe you a good six GGLLB installments to make up for it.  And I’m a horror fan of the old tradition, which means I live by a […]

Mutantis Movie Review

Oct 28, 2014 No Comments by

Radioactive waste, monsters, busty babes who are trying to prove that they’re “groovy,” hillbillies, and a far-out scientist dude who wants to capture Bigfoot in the flesh. Cue Keith Morris singing “Parade of the Horribles.” Better yet, put on Municipal Waste ripping through “Wolves of Chernobyl.” To call Mutantis a tongue-in-cheek parody would be an […]

Horns Movie Review

Oct 23, 2014 No Comments by

I fully expected there to be a film adaptation of Joe Hill’s sophomore novel— a book I absolutely loved, from start to finish (do yourself a favor and immediately pick up a copy). I was just a tad nervous when I read the news that horror-genre staple Alenandre Aja would be directing it.  Not because […]

The Savage Amicus: Robert Bloch in the Movies Part Two

Oct 21, 2014 No Comments by

More than anything else, Robert Bloch’s career is a testament to perseverance. His autobiography, along with the numerous mini-bios and write-ups about him that populate the internet, are testaments to the fact that writers are workers, no exception. And a lesser worker than Bloch would’ve been put off from the film industry long before Great […]
