Dexter Season 6 Review

Dec 25, 2011 No Comments

Editor’s Note: Spoilers ahead! DEXTER SEASON 6 is in the books and I feel like I should be in mourning.  No, not because the hit Showtime series is built on a foundation of death, homicide in particular, but rather it seems as though last year’s fear that the show had jumped the shark has in […]

The Walking Dead Season 2 Midterm Report Card

Dec 04, 2011 2 Comments

A couple years ago the news that a name-filmmaker, Frank Darabont, was adapting Robert Kirkman’s long-running zombie apocalypse comic book series into a television show was noteworthy to say the least.  Though I’ve never had to resist the urge to run through the streets screaming, “Darabont’s a genius,” I was excited about the A-list backing […]

Nov 27, 2011 No Comments

Independent filmmaker Jeremiah Kipp is on the cusp of becoming a household name in genre circles.  His feature debut, THE SADIST, starring horror deity Tom Savini, is generating cyber-buzz worthy of horror and exploitation heavyweights.  But this didn’t happen overnight.  Kipp has served as second-unit or assistant director on several independent genre successes including I […]

After Party Massacre Movie Review

Nov 05, 2011 No Comments

I’ve received a fair number of screeners over the years, most of which contain movies of the ultra-indie variety.  There’s an inherent excitement to popping in a Sharpie-inscribed DVD-r, sitting through whatever it may contain, and then after a bit of objective analysis, discovering the opinions that manifest on the other side.  The results are […]

Interview with the Twisted Twins Part 2

Oct 30, 2011 No Comments

I have always been a die-hard feminist when it comes to the horror I love. I fist pump in triumph every time Jennifer Hills mutilates a perverted mountain man in I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE. Ripley and her alien-whoopin’ ways will always hold a tender spot in my heart. Danielle Harris’ portrayal of Marybeth in […]

Oct 22, 2011 3 Comments

Ravenous Monster’s resident horror humorist Billy Boyce is back with a look at PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 3…. The PARANORMAL ACTIVITY series is perfectly woven together like the immaculate ‘do on Tyra Banks’ galactic head.  I have been waiting for this poisonous little romper since I found out it was a definite green light. If you paid […]

Director Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. said that, as a Swede, he was always fascinated with what happened to the Norwegian team we learn about in John Carpenter’s 1982 classic THE THING.  So, twenty-nine years after that film came out and now holds elite status amongst horror fans, we’re treated to Heijningen’s prequel of the same […]

Interview with the Twisted Twins Part 1

Oct 08, 2011 No Comments

I was at my grandmother’s cozy little hobbit hole for dinner the night I decided to drop a line to Jen Soska. I wanted to let Jen and her sister, Sylvia, know how much I loved their film, Dead Hooker in a Trunk.  I also figured, what the hell, so I asked if I could […]

Interview with Late Night Horror Host Rich “Freakshow” Peterson

Sep 25, 2011 No Comments

Sometimes the most inspirational epiphanies strike during the unlikeliest times.  Take Rich “Freakshow” Peterson for example.  The self-made late night horror host and director of the Madison Horror Film Fest was neither of those things five years ago when he was kicking back on the couch, squeezing in the last bit of available rest and […]

Dead Hooker in a Trunk: An Indie Exploitation Exposé

Sep 18, 2011 No Comments

In early 2010, I caught wind of a film hailing from Canada that had the indie world abuzz. I did a little research and was immediately dragged into the hype. Two beautiful twins who coined themselves the Twisted Twins had made a faux-grindhouse trailer and showed it at their film school’s graduation ceremony. Half the […]
