Sean has had a few short stories published and a few punk records recorded. If you watch a horror movie with him, he'll drive you crazy connecting the actors to their other movies and dropping useless bits of trivia. He thinks the Exorcist III is by far the superior film of the franchise, and believes Braindead was more deserving of an Oscar than Lord of the Rings.

Book Review: There’s No Happy Ending – Author Tiffany Scandal

There's-no-happy-ending

Ever since reading Gabino Iglesias’ Gutmouth, I’ve been more and more interested in the New Bizarro Author Series (NBAS for short) put together by Eraserhead Press. Without beating a dead horse, what they do is give a chance to promising new authors who haven’t yet published their first novel. With five to seven releases each year, we get a fresh ...

There’s also Pins, a suspenseful dark thriller involving strip clubs and bowling alleys. There’s the young adult mystery/thriller, Rabbits in the Garden. There’s her trip into the world of steampunk, ...

Book Review: Splatterpunk – Issue 4

The spirit of D.I.Y. is alive and well within the pages of Jack Bantry’s Splatterpunk, but just because it has the look of an old cut and paste style, made in your basement, punk zine doesn’t mean it’s lacking in quality. The complete opposite, actually; these forty pages are packed with great in your face, extreme horror fiction. Not only ...

SYNOPSIS: Story about a raped model who takes bloody revenge. German Extreme horror film –  mixture of amateur-gore, bad but entertaining acting, some semi-hardcore scenes, much blood and extremely bad taste.
