Sader Ridge Movie Review

Jul 31, 2013 No Comments by

Director Jeremy Berg’s psychological horror-thriller Sader Ridge (The October People) is a refreshingly creepy film.  Where other movies might go for cheap scares and body horror, Sader Ridge is a quieter movie that relies on the strength of its performances and the implications of the unspoken to deliver a more thought-provoking fear. The film is about Sam […]

Jul 28, 2013 No Comments by

The Crow: Skinning the Wolves marked the end of James O’Barr’s long absence from the franchise he created and he’s back again with a new Crow tale entitled Curare.  The high standard he set with Skinning the Wolves is easily met in this new tale of anguish and pain. The narrative is built around Detective […]

The Conjuring Movie Review

Jul 19, 2013 3 Comments by

The Conjuring hits on all the haunts…. James Wan, your seat is ready.  Following up the widely applauded INSIDIOUS should have proved to be much more difficult for the man who brought us gore by the gallons with the SAW series and buckets of heebie-jeebies with DEAD SILENCE. Yet, here I am proclaiming Mr. Wan […]

Interview with THE SHADOW OF DEATH Director Gav Chuckie Steel

Jul 10, 2013 No Comments by

Gav Chuckie Steel is one of those guys that just ooze horror.  He eats, dreams, and breathes the gory stuff.  This non-stop motor of his serves him spectacularly well in his directorial debut, a fantastic super low-budget flick titled The Shadow of Death.  If you haven’t checked out my review of the film, be sure […]

From the darkness has curiosity ever reached out and struck you?  Has it caused you to wonder about your favorite genre writers and what’s on their bookshelves?  It’s reached out and struck me.  Do they have some classic pulp detective novels?  What about graphic novel collections?  Maybe the severed head of the poor unfortunate soul […]

Jul 03, 2013 No Comments by

“I had to do everything because I couldn’t find another kindred soul. Now you see eighty people listed doing the same things I was doing by myself.” Sometimes people ask me why I’m so crazy for monsters and so interested in the weird.  I have no trouble tracing my inspiration all the way back to […]
