Why George Romero’s LAND OF THE DEAD Deserves a Second Look

For many of us who grew up during the 1970s and the ’80s, the original George A. Romero zombie trilogy — NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, DAWN OF THE DEAD, and DAY OF THE DEAD — was where it was at if you were a horror fan. Rumors of George doing a fourth movie in […]

The Grossest Horror Movie Ever Made?: Exploring MERMAID IN A MANHOLE

I admittedly have a repulsion/fascination with the film MERMAID IN A MANHOLE, possibly one of the grossest movies ever made. I first watched the fetid flick in college via overly dubbed VHS tape. Part of the larger GUINEA PIG film series (known for excessive gore and torture), I had seen several of the series’ other inclusions […]

BAD TASTE, Fast Food And Life’s Basest Pleasures!

As its title implies, BAD TASTE isn’t what anyone would call an appetizing movie. Perhaps best known as the debut film of LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy director Peter Jackson, BAD TASTE is a singularly loony splatterfest about aliens that descend upon a small New Zealand village and the four-man paramilitary force that aims to […]

Slashback! Why CEMETERY OF TERROR is Mexico’s Best Slasher EVER

I know you’ve been missing my regular column on vintage slasher flicks… but it’s okay, you don’t have to reveal your dark and secret shame by admitting it. If you’re familiar with my previous installments, you know I tend to focus on more obscure oddities from the often-maligned slasher subgenre, as opposed to the classic […]

In Defense of Tobe Hooper’s THE MANGLER

His name is often listed alongside his peers Wes Craven, John Carpenter, George Romero, Joe Dante, and John Landis as one of the most significant of all horror directors. The horror community will forever be in his […]

We Talk The SLAYER “Repentless” Music Video Trilogy With Director BJ McDonnell!

It started one year ago with a prison riot. A mysterious man in an eye patch elicits the outbreak of violence to take out a rival. I am, of course, referring to the lead off video and single from Slayer‘s latest album, the title track “Repentless.” Several months later, returning director BJ McDonnell brought back […]

Here’s What We Hope To See In ASH VS EVIL DEAD Season 2!

You’ll have to forgive me, but after seeing Bruce Campbell deflect any questions revolving around the possibility of an EVIL DEAD 4 at countless conventions for the last 20 years, it’s still hard for me to believe that the adventures of one Ashley J. Williams did finally continue with the Starz series ASH VS EVIL […]

Herschell Gordon Lewis: The Godfather of Gore… and Killer Copy Writing

Do you remember the last time you threw up in a movie theater? If you do, it probably wasn’t because the horror film you were watching was disgustingly gory. It was most likely because you ordered too many margaritas from the dining-in service. It takes a very special film to make people spew in their […]

Five Reasons Why INSIDE is the Best Violent Shocker of the Past Decade

One of the great tragedies of modern horror cinema is the confounding ambivalence shown to INSIDE (A L’INTERIEUR) upon its U.S. release. The stunning 2007 French shocker generated some buzz during its award-winning festival run, but never received a proper theatrical release save for France (it was filmed in Paris) and a handful of European […]
