“Evolved” Torture Porn or Armchair Body Horror or…?

“Evolved” Torture Porn or Armchair Body Horror or…?

Tweet Watching Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury’s Inside (À l’intérieur) for the first time recently, I couldn’t help but roll this very question about in my head in regards to the state of the horror genre. Concerning a ruthless, gap-toothed woman on a tear to acquire another woman’s unborn child through back alley means; it’s […]

Roswell that ends well: IGN and Syfy fans choose new original movie concept

Roswell that ends well: IGN and Syfy fans choose new original movie concept

Tweet Firstly, sorry about that pun, it doesn’t even make sense. Especially when you know what the actual story is about. But whatever, it’s my article and I will do whatever I damn well please (as long as the Bloodsprayer gods don’t come down on me with great vengeance and fuuuuuurious anger). Anyway, Syfy have […]

Dan O’Bannon From The One Who Knows Him Best: Words From Diane O’Bannon

Tweet A few months ago when I came up with the idea to present to our readers an entire week of posts about Dan O’Bannon, it was obvious there was one person I needed to confer with first,  this person was his wife  Diane O’Bannon. I started to get to know Diane about a month […]




Return of the Living Dead… A “love” story, with pictures.

Return of the Living Dead… A “love” story, with pictures.

Tweet I don’t remember the first time I watched ROTLD, but what I do remember are the lingering effects its had on me over all these years. The fact that they could talk, pretty scary… I was handed a reason for them eating brains, utterly terrifying… They made me laugh, now hold the phone…..  Most […]

Automatons And Cigarettes: A Look Back At Screamers

Tweet Screamers was written for the screen by the one and only Dan O’bannon, and adapted from a Phillip K. Dick short by the name of “Second Variety”.

Good Lord! Kevin Smith’s Red State trailer is here and it kicks butt.

Good Lord! Kevin Smith’s Red State trailer is here and it kicks butt.

Tweet Before you read on, make sure you watch this: I would be some sort of horrific heel if I didn’t tell you I have been a proponent of this movie since Smith first announced the writing of it back in 2005. The “youth of America versus the religious right” premise is just beautifully simple, […]

Geno McGahee is all set to show us his FAMILY SECRET.

Tweet Geno McGahee, founder of X-Posse Productions and director of such under-the-radar genre fare as Evil Awakening and Rise of the Scarecrows, is preparing to unleash his latest creation on the unsuspecting inhabitants of our swirling sphere. And this time it’s personal. Here is the plot synopsis given to the Bloodsprayer: Phyliss McGee was a wicked woman […]




Dead & Buried: An Underappreciated Classic

Dead & Buried: An Underappreciated Classic

Tweet Dead & Buried is a film that’s difficult to classify. While it’s certainly a horror film, it has a lot more going on thematically than what would first appear. And unfairly, this film gets lumped into the zombie genre although there is certainly a linkage that can be made. Directed by Gary Sherman with a […]




Tripping the Space Fantastic with Dan O’Bannon in ‘Heavy Metal’

Tripping the Space Fantastic with Dan O’Bannon in ‘Heavy Metal’

Tweet I have to admit, prior to being involved in this ode to Dan O’Bannon I didn’t know much about the man beyond his immortally classic Return from the Living Dead. So it was much to my surprise (and delight) that I learned he had previously entertained fans with tales of genre exploitation, post-apocalyptic grudge […]
