The_manson_family_film_1

SYNOPSIS: You’ve seen the story through the eyes of the law… Now see it through the eyes of The Manson Family REVIEW: “The Manson Family”, filmed under the title “Charlie’s Family”, is a wild, brutal, shocking, psychedelic, unique experience in film, a sensory overload of mayhem and depravity. It is a film with true power; I was practically in shock after finishing this masterpiece. Unlike other Charles Manson films this one brings us into the … Continue reading

Interview: Madelina Horn (The Profane Exhibit)

Madelina-Horn-Profane-Exhibit-4

What do you think the relationship is between sex and horror? MH: They both play on the same idea of taboos + boundary pushing. They both attract the same kind of curiosity from the hearts of humanity. Since society is still largely based on religious moral standards, we see both sex + violence as taboo + wrong, yet are instinctively drawn to them, thus getting a rush from seeking out such naughtiness. Both sexuality + … Continue reading

Interview: Author Adam Pepper

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Adam, thanks for agreeing to do the interview. How would you describe your writing? I bring a dark and cynical perspective to my work. Whether I’m writing about a superhuman fetus, a spoiled society chick/cokehead or a two-bit hoodlum in love with a mob boss’s daughter, there’s always a piece of my own personal worldview in my work. What is the history of Superfetus? How did it go from a short story to a … Continue reading

Interview: Seregon O’Dassey

Seregon-O’Dassey-scream-queen-1

Seregon O’Dassey is an actress, model, and scream queen. She has acted in a lot of horror films but has a very diverse resume that also includes work on various soap operas. What I find particularly interesting is that Seregon at one point worked at a funeral home, and her job involved reconstructing corpses so that they look presentable for a funeral. She also did embalming and a lot more but these days she only … Continue reading

Beautiful_Teacher_in_Torture_Hell_3

Oniroku Dan: Bikyoshi jigokuzeme (original title) SYNOPSIS: Ran Masaki plays a beautiful teacher who is transferred to a remote mountain school where she is gang-raped and abused by the male students. REVIEW: Plot: Completely irrelevant. The disc does not come with subtitles, which is a moot point because they would be useless. When subtitles are irrelevant you know you are not watching the Cat III version of Citizen Kane. Cat IIIs are known for extreme … Continue reading

Horrors of Humanity: Atrocious Crimes

lambslaughter

Who says films don’t influence crime? And who cares anyway? In California, a large man wearing a Michael Meyer Halloween mask raped a woman while carrying a large knife. Donald Pleasance was not there to try and shoot him. There’s an old Roald Dahl story called “Lambs to the Slaughter” in which a woman beats her husband to death with a lamb, which she then serves to the investigating police officers who happily devoured the … Continue reading

Horrors of Humanity: Gore and Vomit

bizBB_0005

Gore and vomit have always had a relationship, with truly gory films such as the Guinea Pig movies and the August Underground films inducing gallons of vomit across the planet. Director Lucifer Valentine has combined the two ‘hobbies’ into a new genre he calls ‘vomit gore’. They feature vomit, and may cause the viewer to join in. I made it 11 minutes into his first film, Slaughtered Vomit Dolls, before I had to take a … Continue reading
