This Clip Replaces WONDER YEARS Narration with Horror Music… and It’s Hilariously Creepy

This awesome little experiment was first mixed by comedian Jon Friedman nearly a decade ago… and its source material, of course, is way older still. But for reasons no one can explain, it’s suddenly experienced a viral resurgence. I’m going to assume you have at least a passing familiarity with THE WONDER YEARS, an incredibly […]

The Wild, Weird Horror Movie Career of Ami Dolenz

Ami Dolenz is one of those actresses that you can’t help but fall in love with once you see one of her films. With her cute girl-next-door charm, the eldest daughter of Monkee Mickey Dolenz lights up the screen and steals the show — even when cast opposite Seth Green or Corey Feldman. While she […]

CINEMA IN EXTREMIS: Twisted Horror-Comedy DEEP DARK Opens a Glory Hole to Hell

I’ve mentioned in previous installments of this column that extreme cinema is about more than graphic gore or explicit sex; it’s about pushing the boundaries of visual storytelling in ways that may shock the viewer into seeing a new perspective… whether they want to or not. The obscure but weirdly compelling 2015 horror-fantasy feature DEEP […]

Shake, Rattle and Roll: A Second Look at CLUE

CLUE was released on December 13, 1985, underperforming at the box office and receiving mixed reviews. It was the first and pretty much only of its kind: a movie with multiple endings. Depending on which theater you saw it at, the ending might have been different than the one showing at another theater across the […]

11 Insane Horror-Themed Pornos That Actually Exist [NSFW]

We’ve all hunkered down to the classics: EDWARD PENISHANDS, WET DREAM ON ELM STREET, THE XXXORCIST, SCREAM XXX: A PORN PARODY, or perhaps THE BARE WENCH PROJECT. When it comes to porn parodies, your options are pretty much limitless, as the porn parody has become a cottage industry unto itself — and that includes, of […]

CINEMA IN EXTREMIS: The Beautiful Body Horror of HE TOOK HIS SKIN OFF FOR ME

Many works of surreal cinema bear equally baffling titles, but I can confidently say the title of Ben Aston’s 2014 short film HE TOOK HIS SKIN OFF FOR ME represents 100% truth in advertising. It’s also a pretty amazing work of “extremist drama” that’s more touching than you might expect. Adapted from a short story […]

A Sneak Peek at the Tasty Horror Comedy BUTCHER THE BAKERS!

If you thought low-fi ‘80s oddities like BLOOD DINER or MICROWAVE MASSACRE were the last word on culinary-themed horror satire (not counting outright cannibal-themed flicks, of course), you might want to update your movie viewing schedule soon… because there’s a new indie feature on the way that promises to bring that niche subgenre headlong into […]

Why KILLER CONDOM is Actually an Important Movie… No, Seriously

Sexual anxiety is a common theme in horror. There have been many, many great horror films over the ages to tackle humanity’s ongoing relationship with our own libidinous urges, and every nation has had a chance to weigh in on whatever sexual hysteria exists in their own culture. [Check out this earlier feature for a […]

CREEPYPASTA: The Notorious “Unwanted Houseguest” Stars in Music Video “Ghost Me!”

Among the lore of scary memes, one of the all-time creepiest is a hand-drawn “self-portrait” of a sinister, smiling boogeyman whose face has been accompanied by hundreds of ominous captions — nearly all of which involve this mystery monster lurking somewhere in the reader’s home. This nightmarish reputation has earned the character the popular nickname […]

I NEED ME GOLD! Revisiting (and Ranking) the LEPRECHAUN Movie Franchise

This St. Patrick’s Day, this self-proclaimed horror superfan tasked himself with watching all seven films of the LEPRECHAUN movie franchise. It is a task that I have put upon myself a number of times… but I always end up cowering out about three movies in. In fact, over the last two years, I’ve only watched […]

CINEMA IN EXTREMIS: Watch the Outrageously Gory “Safety Film” FORKLIFT DRIVER KLAUS!

Greetings, cinematic extremists! Time to put your plastic ponchos on, ‘cuz we’re gonna get messy again. I’ve had kind of a rough week, so instead of delving too deeply into the artistic, social and philosophical aspects of extreme horror today, I thought we’d have a little splatstick fun instead… and best of all, today’s entry isn’t […]

Ten Lesser-Known Horror Comedies You Should Watch ASAP!

The horror genre has seen some outstanding and hilarious horror comedies over the decades — from the 1948 Universal classic ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN to 2004’s SHAUN OF THE DEAD, these films have become beloved titles, and in many cases box-office blockbusters. But several other horror comedies flew beneath the mainstream radar — independent […]

The Bizarre Link Between Head Trauma and Nymphomania

In 2004, John Waters made his wholly underrated film A DIRTY SHAME — a film that, given Waters’ general difficulty in finding financing, may prove to be his last. In it, a prudish Baltimore everywoman named Sylvia Stickles (the inimitable Tracey Ullman) sustains a horrible blow to the head in a car accident, and as a result […]
