Immediately following its 2010 release, the highly-controversial (and still widely banned) creation of director/co-writer Srđan Spasojević raced to the top of nearly every movie site’s […]

CREEPYPASTA: The 25-Year-Old Mystery Behind “Mortuary of the Dead” [NSFW]

The ghastly, nightmarish legends surrounding a notorious (and redundantly-titled) video known as “Mortuary of the Dead” has elevated its seedy legacy from the underground domain of VHS bootlegs and “true gore” sites, and into the realm of internet legends… and that place, as you probably know by now, is where I live and breathe. Still, myths and […]

Arguably one of the most-discussed examples is the so-called “Max Headroom Broadcast” of November 1987, wherein an unknown prankster (whose identity remains a mystery three decades later), disguised as […]

Last week’s viral video showing a giant bear chasing a cyclist on a mountain path [check out the story here if you missed it] is one of several unsettling news items suggesting the massive forest-dwelling beasts haven’t been too happy lately with humans encroaching on their turf.

CINEMA IN EXTREMIS: The VHS Atrocities of Psychic TV’s FIRST TRANSMISSION [NSFW]

Not long ago, I explored the dark and mystifying lore of “snuff cinema” in its many forms — including works of alleged onscreen murder and mutilation which, though stomach-churning in their realism, were either hoaxes, misrepresented footage or works of transgressive underground “murder art.” In another feature, I examined a notorious example of the latter […]
