Butterfly Skin Book Review

Sep 30, 2014 No Comments by

Russian literature, or at least the type you might read in college, is known for its intensity and mountains of cerebral ramblings on all things unanswerable. From Dostoevsky to Bulgakov, the best Russian writers don’t deal with miniatures or micro narratives. The Brothers Karamazov somehow manages to tackle both familial relations and the heart of […]

Interview with SLEDGE Co-Director/Star Kristian Hanson

Sep 23, 2014 No Comments by

I recently had the opportunity watch a fun, quirky film – Sledge, a horror comedy that takes the age-old “campers are targeted by a sociopath” trope and wrings out every bit of delicious, gory cheesiness it can.  I talked all about it in my review, which you should look at if you haven’t already, but […]

TV Horror at its Best: Are You Ready for Boris Karloff’s THRILLER?

Sep 18, 2014 1 Comment by

They sure don’t make ‘em like they used to! That’s usually the battle cry of every crusty old crab such as myself when it comes to popular entertainment, resulting in a flurry of rolling eyes and groans from kids of the digital generation. Well, keep groaning, kiddies, because yes, horror and suspense today is inferior […]

Straightjackets and Sleepwalkers: Robert Bloch in the Movies Part One

Sep 16, 2014 No Comments by

When Robert Bloch came to Hollywood in the early 1960s, he did so as an already accomplished and acclaimed author. In this regard, Bloch was nothing new. Plenty of writers, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and William Faulkner, had chosen a similar career path. But unlike Fitzgerald, who washed out in Hollywood as an alcoholic […]

Sledge Movie Review

Sep 11, 2014 1 Comment by

The horror comedy is a venerable genre in its own right. For as long as there have been horror films, there have been movies spoofing them – from Abbott and Costello facing the black-and-white movie monsters to Cabin in the Woods and Knights of Badassdom toying with our expectations of the genre, these movies are […]

Interview with Ditch Day Massacre stars Bill Oberst Jr., Katy Foley and Zach Silverman

Sep 09, 2014 No Comments by

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with not one, but three awesome people involved in the film Ditch Day Massacre, an homage to ‘80s-era slasher films produced by Water Tree Media.  Ditch Day Massacre is a simple tale of revenge pitted against some clueless teenagers…or is it?  I can’t say much more without […]

As Above So Below Movie Review

Sep 04, 2014 No Comments by

As Above, So Below got 33% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is at once accurate and grossly unfair.  As Above. . . combines, rather ingeniously, an Indiana Jones-like archaeological adventure with found-footage horror.  It will not answer all your questions, and there’s no punchline or twist.  It’s weird from its brilliant beginning in Iran through its […]

Witch Island Book Review

Sep 02, 2014 No Comments by

Before zombies, vampires, and werewolves, there were witches. There are many parts of the world where one can still be unceremoniously murdered over simply an accusation of witchcraft. Sure, it’s been a while since they were in vogue: Willow from BUFFY, The Craft, Sabrina, CHARMED. The nineties were a time to wear your pointy black […]
