I love poetry and I love horror. Unsurprisingly, I have a soft spot for horror poetry. Unfortunately, like many expressions of horror, the amount of subpar work by cheap, gimmicky hacks makes the entire genre I adore look like shit. Because of that, I tend to be pretty damn harsh on poetry. Unless I like it, then I glow like a worm on Christmas eve and spew my joy all over you (yes, the … Continue reading

Â I canâ€™t remember the last straight-up monster book that Iâ€™ve read. Probably some book about Bigfoot or something when I was younger. Itâ€™s not even that I donâ€™t like the creature features, but more that my tastes usually lay in a more reality-centered realm, where there are far more serial killers and devil-worshippers than there are monsters hiding in the dark. So leave it to Adam Cesare (Video Night, The Summer Job, and … Continue reading

Joe Lansdale. If I have to tell you about him, Iâ€™m not sure I want to talk to you any more.

You probably know Greg Hall. Heâ€™s the Friday night piggy-petter and grand poobah of the no-pants zone who gives out 80â€™s headshots with the, ahem, personalized inscription stating that you are indeed his favorite writer. He gets some of the biggest names in horror on his podcast, the Funky Werepig, but never forgets to leave room for those writers struggling to get noticed. Also, heâ€™s torn up the floor atÂ the big boy dance … Continue reading

As a fan of the genre, I tend to get really excited when a cool new book release arrives on the scene. I’ve seen my share of “movie catalog” book releases but this release is actually the first publishing I’ve seen that takes the time to map out what most of us would love to have on hand for off road vacations.
Namely the details on discovering old movie locations used in classic horror … Continue reading

For a very, very short amount of time, back in the mid-1990â€™s, just after Headbangerâ€™s Ball was cancelled, there was a show on MTV called SuperRock (bear with me here, this will make sense shortly). Rather than only playing heavy metal videos, SuperRock covered a wider variety. On a normal night, you might catch a Bad Religion video, then a Faith No More video, and then a Public Enemy video. They essentially tapped into … Continue reading
