Godzilla’s Fearsome Five

Oct 10, 2016 No Comments

Greetings, monster maniacs! Among my many areas of scientific expertise is the arcane study of kaijuology. This is the discipline devoted to the examination of giant city-wrecking monsters, particularly those centered on the isle of Japan. These towering abominations, known as “kaiju” in Japan, have been a subject of endless fascination for not just the […]

The Killer Robots! Crash and Burn Movie Review

Aug 15, 2016 No Comments

Your old pal Dr. Mality likes to dabble in many branches of science, but robotics holds a special place in my blackened heart. I don’t know how many hours I’ve slaved in the lab trying to whip up nefarious automatons to do my will. The lawn mowing robot was a real disaster and it looks […]

Interview with Cadabra Records’ Jonathan Dennison

Jul 11, 2016 No Comments

Greetings, humanoids! Those of you who have been following Ravenous Monster for a while now may have already checked out some of my reviews of Cadabra Records’ macabre products. In the past, I’ve looked at their vinyl release of H.P. Lovecraft’s “The Hound/The Music of Erich Zann” and also Lee Brown Coye’s “Where Is Abby? […]

X the Unknown: From the Bowels of the Earth!

Mar 17, 2016 No Comments

When one talks about British science fiction on TV and in the movies, the conversation must start with the name of Nigel Kneale. This extremely influential writer created the continuing character of Prof. Bernard Quatermass, who inspired later horror/SF icons like Kolchak the Night Stalker and the intrepid investigators of the X-Files. Kneale was known […]

Lovecraft Out Loud: A Review of The Hound & The Music of Erich Zann on Cadabra Records

Jan 12, 2016 No Comments

If you humanoids are inclined to hear classic tales of terror in spoken form, you can spend hours wandering the digital catacombs of YouTube and other such websites and find the works of Poe, Lovecraft, King and more. The quality of these verbal frights varies from excellent to something more hideous than the monsters described […]

The Lazarus Gate Book Review

Nov 24, 2015 No Comments

Rather like zombies and superheroes, steampunk is starting to crumble beneath the weight of its popularity. An endless avalanche of “hop aboard the bandwagon” creators has diluted its freshness. Many books set in the Victorian era feature stock characters like the usual “Polly Parasol” type, a proper Englishwoman who enjoys tea after kicking the ass […]

Blood Moon Movie Review

Sep 08, 2015 No Comments

The Werewolf Goes West! Somethin’ is kickin’ up dust in the entertainment world, pardner. It seems that inch by inch, the Western is starting to crawl its way out of the grave and back into the public consciousness. Sure, it’ll probably never reach the heights it did in the ‘50s and ‘60s when it seemed […]

The Homespun Horror of Lee Brown Coye

Aug 27, 2015 2 Comments

Scrawny and thin, my dead come in But looks are soon forgotten I fill the hollows in their cheeks With little wads of cotton I set their hair a’waving fair And pull their eyelids down And like a sculptor ply my art To banish scowl and frown For death is brief and so is grief […]

Goblin Rebirth Album Review

Jul 02, 2015 1 Comment

It’s pretty much impossible to imagine Italian horror cinema without also thinking of Goblin.  Their eerie cinematic soundscapes provided the soundtrack to sudden bloody death and the arrival of demonic evil. I would argue that their soundtrack to Suspiria is not only the best modern horror score but also the LOUDEST. If you remove the […]

The Rise and Fall of Lionel Atwill

May 05, 2015 6 Comments

“One side of my face is gentle and kind, incapable of anything but love of my fellow man. The other side, the other profile, is cruel and predatory and evil, incapable of anything but the lusts and dark passions. It all depends on which side of my face is turned toward you—or the camera. It […]
