Cactus Flower EP by Asforteri Album Review

May 03, 2016 No Comments

“A giallo is not a detective story, it is not a thriller, not a suspense movie, not a horror film.” Rather, according to Ernesto Gastaldi in Troy Howarth’s So Deadly, So Perverse, a giallo “can be any one of these things and also all of these things rolled into one.” Besides being a distinctive style […]

Finland is a magical, mystical country. It snows all the time, metal is always on the radio, and eleven months out of the year you can catch Santa Claus relaxing at his home in Rovaniemi. Finland is also sex-obsessed, pussy-obsessed, and dick-obsessed. Finland is the kind of place where redneck mad scientists engineer walking fuck […]

Mar 31, 2016 No Comments

Grand Guignol is a byword for shockingly grisly horror. Blood, guts, vomit, and other secretions—these were the trademarks of the dirty, little theatre in the Pigalle section of Paris.

The Angel of Highgate Book Review

Feb 02, 2016 No Comments

One would be hard pressed to find a name more English than Vaughn Entwistle. I’ve certainly never heard anything that oozes tea and crumpets quite like it. On top of it all, Mr. Entwistle is the author of an oh-so English novel—The Angel of Highgate. Set in the autumn of 1859, The Angel of Highgate […]

Pardon me real quick while I adjust my horn-rimmed glasses before starting. Now that everything is in place, I can begin. I was into wrestling before it was cool. Before Hulk Hogan’s heel turn at the 1996 installment of Bash at the Beach and before Stone Cold Steve Austin won the world title at WrestleMania […]
