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 […]

Interview with Filmmaker Jeremiah Kipp

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 […]

Haunted: Eleven Tales of Ghostly Horror Book Review

Nov 19, 2011 No Comments

I think ghost stories are the hardest kind of horror to write.  I love body horror, but it’s easier; a disease that causes you to sprout hands in random places, a woman with shark heads instead of breasts. . . .Sure it’s creepy, but there’s something a little Mr. Potato Head about it: stick enough […]

DEAD Journal: Diary of an Indie Filmmaker 4

Nov 12, 2011 1 Comment

When I set out to make my debut film, I quickly realized a short flick wasn’t the end of the world.  Sure, I had dreams of full-length projects (my first feature-length flick actually starts filming this November), but we were working with a tight budget and my skills as a director had never been tested.

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 […]

“…and in the midst of this pestilence an end…” -Giovanni Villani The printed medium has been around for about as long as humans have; ever since the first human discovered they could smear more than feces and blood onto cave walls to leave messages, the field of writing established itself. In fact, animals have always […]

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 […]

Oct 15, 2011 No Comments

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 […]

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 […]
