Album of the month:  Univers Zero – Heresie (1979)

Tweet   How do you base an entire review on one portion of one song? I could write this entire piece on the first 6 minutes of “La Faulx” and be satisfied in the thought that I steered no one wrong. Univers Zero formed in 1974 and recorded their first, initially self titled album (renamed […]

Stalking Through The Shadows: Remembering The Gothic Horrors Of Dan Curtis (Part 4)

Tweet Dan Curtis was famous for his ability to combine unique horror tales and incredibly talented character actors to produce exemplary cinematic results. No project of his displays this better than 1976’s Burnt Offerings. Not only does it tell one of the most unique tales of any Curtis project up to that point (actually, it […]

Monster Mania 19 Coverage: Day 3 (Final Thoughts)

Tweet The last day at Monster Mania was solemn. I got up before everyone else, took a shower, and headed downstairs for some breakfast. I got a coffee and bagel at the coffee shop downstairs where I sat at a table watching people beginning to enter for the day. I envied them, I wanted to wait on line again for […]

Monster Mania 19 Coverage: Day 2 (Nirvana)

Monster Mania 19 Coverage: Day 1 (Genesis)

Monster Mania 19 Coverage: Day 1 (Genesis)

Tweet I was very unsure if I was going to go to Monster Mania  a few months ago when John Squires approached me with the idea. Would I like it? Would I have fun? Would I fit in? All these silly and emotional responses to the invite were keeping me from making any sort of commitment. Then one day […]




Monster Mania 19 Video Coverage: Q & A with “Behind the Mask’s” Nathan Baesel

Monster Mania 19 Video Coverage: Q & A with “Behind the Mask’s” Nathan Baesel

Tweet Meeting Nathan Baesel was probably the biggest moment for me at Monster Mania. Why? Because Behind the Mask means a good deal to me for reasons that are hard to articulate properly. It’s a type of film that goes beyond just being a “good” movie, it strikes a nerve that makes me feel “connected” […]

FRIGHT NIGHT REVIEW: Return of the Horror Dork

FRIGHT NIGHT REVIEW: Return of the Horror Dork

Tweet I think opening day for any remake feels like the first battle between Apollo Creed and Rocky Balboa. Underdog versus champion and of course there’s no expectation for the underdog to win really. Rocky isn’t supposed to win against Apollo Creed, and I don’t think there’s any question that the remake of Fright Night […]
