Wow….if there is a book solely dedicated to this crappy film toting it as cult phenomenon, then the film “must” be worth checking out. I admit it, I didn’t jump on the wagon when it arrived back in 2003. The movie, that is…had escaped my interest.

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

As a fan of the genre, I tend to get really excited when a cool new book release arrives on the scene.

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
