Hobo with a Shotgun Movie Review

May 05, 2011 No Comments

Hobo with a Shotgun, directed by Jason Eisener and starring Rutger Hauer in the titular role, looks, sounds, and plays exactly like what it’s emulating – an exploitation extravaganza circa the early 1980’s.  Having originally been made as a fake trailer for the promotion of the Quinton Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez throwback vehicle, Grindhouse (2007), […]

Allison Hewitt is Trapped Book Review

May 01, 2011 1 Comment

Madeleine Roux’s first novel, Allison Hewitt is Trapped is a zombie book with brains.  Not the kind that satiate the story’s hungry horde of walking dead, but rather the kind that manifest from an author who respects the intelligence of her readers and whose writing chops are sharper than the axe wielded by the book’s […]

Interview with Writer-Director Cory Udler

Apr 10, 2011 No Comments

Wisconsin based filmmaker, Cory Udler marches to the beat of his own drummer.  The fact that his drummer is a maniac with ball-peen hammers for sticks and a hollowed out human torso-snare is of little consequence.  It just means that Cory makes weird flicks.  His influences comprise the A-list of B-movies from the pinnacle of […]

Cannibal Holocaust: Welcome to the Jungle

Feb 08, 2011 7 Comments

Ravenous Monster’s retrospective series of sick and twisted cinema continues….  “Cannibal Holocaust” is a grimy, twisted little classic that’s greater than the sum of its parts.  These are parts that run the gamut of taste and ethical virtue, mind you.  Porn stars, authentic animal butchery, real-deal Amazon tribesmen, depictions of sexual violence, cannibalism, and rape.  Top […]

Interview with Screenwriter Bob Heske

Jan 03, 2011 1 Comment

The horror genre and independent filmmaking have a relationship similar to that of Ramen Noodles and dorm cooking.  These two relationships exist for several reasons, one of which is the relative accessibility of the means required to achieve an end that’s entirely gratifying.  In one case we achieve lunch, dinner, maybe even breakfast, and in […]
