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 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 […]

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 Memoriam: Howard Phillips Lovecraft – He was Providence

Apr 03, 2011 No Comments

[I received this writing inside of a sealed envelope smeared with what can only be described as a mix of gelatinous ichor, black tea, and delicious homemade tomatillo salsa by way of a mysterious cloaked invalid on prosthetic legs of what appeared to be silver. Along with it came a hand-scrawled scrap of paper with […]

The Horror Graph: Crunching Numbers and Spitting out Bone Shards

Mar 27, 2011 9 Comments

I know a woman who’s a paranormal romance writer.  I should say right off that paranormal romance isn’t my thing at all, but we have common cause in that we’re both trying to choke some sort of life for ourselves out of the world of writing.[1]  So even if her influences are more Twilight and […]

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 […]
