While this trailer has been floating around for sometime, we have yet to feature it here on The Blood Sprayer and I only thought that it was fitting to post it during Italian Week.

“The Last Terror of Man”: 2012, CALTIKI – IL MONSTRO IMMORTALE, and the Rise of Mario Bava

Misinterpreted Mayan religious carvings have led to the year 2012 becoming part of the pop culture eschatology zeitgeist of the 21st century. Mario Bava, unsurprisingly, was there first, and brought an all-consuming mutant protoplasm along for the ride.

American Horror Posters…Italian-ized Parte Uno!

Tweet So I should begin by saying that I am a really awful horror fan. Why you ask? Because I know next to nothing about Italian horror. I know…Its despicable and I really do feel awful about it.

Indie Horror Film “Rotgut” Needs More Gore!

Indie Horror Film “Rotgut” Needs More Gore!
