Growing Pains

Growing Pains

Tweet As many of you may have noticed we experienced some server issues this morning which resulted in our website going down for a short while.

Horror is High in Fiber (Featuring Filmmaker Joshua Hull)

Horror is High in Fiber (Featuring Filmmaker Joshua Hull)

Tweet I was recently chastised for believing that there is “ethical fiber” in the horror community. Simply put, I believe that the horror genre and the community therein is one of the strongest, most loyal out there. I believe that although we all find different facets and elements of the genre that we gravitate towards […]




“Power Was Given Unto Them”: The “Evil Albino” Stereotype in Horror Fiction

“Power Was Given Unto Them”: The “Evil Albino” Stereotype in Horror Fiction

Albinism is a serious and incurable genetic defect resulting in a lack of pigment. According to centuries of fiction, this lack of pigment translates into a lack of moral character; hence, the “Evil Albino” has passed into clichedom.

Monster Heroes: RSVP NOW for the Tromadance Press Conference!

I know some tradeshows use bikini girls to help push product on potential consumers. This one uses bikini girls with chainsaws, blood-stained bosoms and unique piercings.




What’s Mr. Craven Getting At?

What’s Mr. Craven Getting At?

Tweet I’m of the opinion that Wes Craven has yet to make a truly bona fide classic. A horror picture that from stem to stern is what could be deemed “perfect.” Even his best and most beloved works, like A Nightmare on Elm Street, are saddled with little narrative tics that seem tailored for mainstream […]

The Fall – Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan

The Fall – Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan

Tweet Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s second novel in The Strain trilogy, The Fall, releases today, and I have to say in several aspects it falls short of its predecessor. The Strain was creepy, thrilling and an excellent return to the roots of the vampire mythology, but The Fall almost feels like two steps […]

Help Out An Indie Filmmaker

Help Out An Indie Filmmaker

Tweet A few weeks ago, I wrote a feature about a remarkable indie horror film called Dawning (mira aqui). Over the past year or so, I have been following the film’s progress, through various film festivals and small screenings at theaters throughout the country (winning numerous awards along the way). And now filmmaker Gregg Holtgrewe is working tirelessly […]

Regarding the new Mad Ron’s Prevues from Hell DVD…

Tweet I really love Mad Ron’s Prevues from Hell. A horror trailer compilation released in 1987 with a thoughtful selection of 47 vintage clips. Such a bloody party tape wasn’t anything new in the VHS era at that point. Wizard Video had The Best of Sex & Violence hosted by John Carradine, Filmgore hosted by […]
