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), […]

Interview with Actress Rosa Frausto

Apr 24, 2011 12 Comments

With the glut of crappy remakes to go along with half-baked motives and embarrassingly cheesy acting that have plagued mainstream horror cinema over the last few years, I sometimes wonder what I’ll see first (if I ever witness either at all)- a Chicago Cubs world championship or another big time, Hollywood horror blockbuster to sit […]

Scream 4 Movie Review

Apr 17, 2011 4 Comments

Whenever you hear ‘Part 4’ with a film, it’s human nature to shudder. So I don’t blame anyone for going into Scream 4 with skepticism. However, I went in with teenage exuberance – I seriously had butterflies in my stomach when the trailers ended and I heard the first sounds of a phone ringing.  I […]

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 […]

Insidious Movie Review

Apr 09, 2011 1 Comment

After much anticipation, ceaselessly whetted by ads and commercials that were themselves quite insidious, I was able to watch the film Insidious on its Friday, April 1st, 2011 date of release. When I first began seeing these teasers for it a couple of weeks ago, the imagery and the concept fascinated me, albeit a bit […]

In this day and age, sisters are doing it for themselves. No, I’m not talking about boring stuff like being the face of key government positions or playing head bread maker in the 21st century household across the globe. I’m talking about scaring the crap out of you.  Long gone are the days of women […]

Face Off: Bringing Monster Making to the Masses

Feb 21, 2011 No Comments

Face Off, the new reality series on the Syfy television network, has been a long time coming.    Sometime around 1984, a couple video rental places sprung up in my hometown.  My mother, always trying to keep her head above water with regard to technology, had a VCR and immediately got memberships to these video rental […]

Black Swan Movie Review

Feb 14, 2011 4 Comments

BLACK SWAN is director Darren Aronofsky’s late contribution to the world of cinema in 2010. On the surface this film is revelatory of the excruciating world of professional ballet, replete with arduous competition, mental and physical exhaustion, betrayal, and at the same time the utmost beauty and grace of movement. But in BLACK SWAN the […]

Hello everybody!  I’m your teacher Billy, and this is my workshop on “How to Make Bad Horror Films”.  Don’t be nervous.  It’s much easier than one might think.  In fact, the more brittle you are, the more you’re prone to making gargantuan mistakes, doubt yourself, and end up with a cliché film – all of […]

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 […]
