The narrative’s […]

Story and Breakdowns: James O’Barr Story and Art: Jim Terry The Crow: Skinning the Wolves is a return to the franchise by long-absent creator James O’ Barr, who has moved the Crow’s current incarnation from gritty urban landscapes to a Nazi concentration camp.  Even as a longtime fan of O’Barr, I was skeptical.  Can you […]

The Lords of Salem DVD/Blu-Ray Review

Nov 03, 2013 No Comments

The Lords of Salem written and directed by Rob Zombie came and went from select theatres in the blink of an eye, never coming close to a major release.  I caught up with it after being dumped to DVD/Blu-Ray with little marketing and the sole feature being an audio commentary by Zombie.  I follow horror […]

Night at the Demontorium Book Review

Oct 03, 2013 No Comments

Naima Haviland’s Night at the Demontorium is a collection of short stories that harken back to the style of The Twilight Zone and Tales from the Darkside.  While all the stories are unquestionably horror tales, they aspire to be more than just that with very original and clever flourishes throughout. The opening story Aunt Tea’s […]

In Riddick, Vin Diesel returns to his cult favorite role as Richard B. Riddick in a lean, gritty flick that returns to the franchise’s roots.  This movie is very much Diesel’s project and he reportedly worked for scale in order to get the project green-lighted.

Sep 04, 2013 No Comments

Writer/director Xan Cassavetes’s film Kiss of the Damned is a beautifully intriguing film guaranteed to divide its audience.  The vampire tale is equal parts horror and romance, with a strong focus on internal conflict.  Each of the main characters is the greatest danger they face. The simple plot follows three intersecting lives.  Djuna, an old […]

Fatale Book Three: West of Hell Graphic Novel Review

Aug 04, 2013 No Comments

The latest volume of Image Comics’ horror-noir hybrid—Fatale Book Three: West of Hell by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips—doesn’t quite achieve the success of the previous two collected Fatale volumes focusing on the mysterious Josephine’s emotional turmoil, and not the men around her.  Where the previous volumes each comprise a larger narrative, Book Three is […]
