Something has gone dreadfully awry in a college town ordinarily consumed in frat parties, football, cheerleaders and more parties. The carnage unleashed seems to pour from the very microbrewery the youths have known to come and love. Will there be any stopping the blood lust and mayhem unleashed or will everyone eventually succumb to Brew?
Bill Braddockâ€™s novella, Brew is an apocalyptic cavalcade … Continue reading
Adam Cesare is the horror author that fans of horror movies should love. Heâ€™s already got a Deodato-style cannibal novel (Tribesmen), an homage to 1980â€™s horror (Video Night), and even a Creepshow-esque collaboration with Matt Serafini (author of the werewolf novel Feral) called All-Night Terror. He has also written for Fangoria, a little horror magazine that may be familiar to some folks. And in January, 2014, Cesare will be unleashing upon the world of … Continue reading
We, as a people, carry a bizarre obsession with serial and spree killers. My wife has a rather large section of our library dedicated to the subject and she is, by no means, alone in her focus. They seem to be a part of the American mythic collective, where we tend to view them as something significantly more, or less, than human. In our minds, they are monstrous, gigantic beings of … Continue reading
Iâ€™m starting to wonder what will happen if I keep staring at these words, what will happen if I keep reading them, what will happen to them, to me? Will they slide down onto the scuffed Formica tabletop, slither over to my hand, melt into my skin, ride my blood to my brain and burn themselves forever there?
Gary Braunbeck, in the intro to Fran Frielâ€™s frankly ass … Continue reading
Notes From the Guts of a Hippo starts out in the tradition of any good action movie; fast, loud, and in your face. Jay Robbins, our protagonist, gets a call to drop everything and go to Brazil in search of a journalist who has disappeared while researching the Lastiz, a rare breed of hippopotamus. He jumps in a cab to head for the airport, but it is immediately smashed by a runaway truck. So he … Continue reading
Horror (in all its forms) has been a huge part of my life for the better part of thirty seven years now, going back to the ghost story books Iâ€™d get through Scholastic Books and the episodes of Amazing Stories and Unsolved Mysteries I would watch with my parents (sometimes through the cracks between the fingers covering my eyes). Early on, I decided Dawn of the Dead was one of my all time favorite movies … Continue reading
A celebrated author and historian on Halloween rituals is contacted to assist in interpreting an ancient Celtic manuscript. While an Irish archaeologist exhumed the rare find and is working around the clock to translate it, something seems dreadfully awry. Could the passages and pages contain a conjuring to unleash the malevolent Sidh to rain hellfire and brimstone on its unsuspecting readers? Perhaps only an authority on the roots of Samhain and Halloween will have the … Continue reading

Authored by Mark Salisbury, the book “Elysium: The Art of the Film” is a perfect souvenir to accompany the film. I’m often reminded when I receive these film-production art books how much “actual” work goes into the creation of a movie experience.
I can’t think of a better way to illustrate that, than this fine hard cover release. While the book itself takes you thru the countless hours of planning and creation that goes on … Continue reading

Readers will relate to the situations that happen within the pages of Cradle Lake. Ronaldâ€™s ability to create horrific situations is what makes the novel stand out from the rest of the fiction books that are out there. The setting of the story is real, the … Continue reading
As an avid movie fan myself, it sure puts a smile on my face when I hear of news book releases that pay homage to the artistry of the craft. I have spent many the years dealing with marketers who have grown accustomed to quick turnaround photoshop poster designs, so much… that the art of the craft itself has become almost extinct.
Though for every “upper quadrant floating heads” poster or movie monster production … Continue reading
Itâ€™s no secret that I have found myself fascinated by the releases that Bizarro Pulp Press has been dishing out over the past year or so. Not only are they bringing around new authors I havenâ€™t read before, but every book hits me with something completely different. From serial killers to art criticism fairy tales to reality-bending and time detectives, every story hits … Continue reading
Vincenzo Bilof has given us zombies (the Zombie Ascension series,Under A Red Sun, and Nightmare of the Dead), heâ€™s given us werewolves (Japanese Werewolf Apocalypse series), and heâ€™s even given us a horror poetry-novel (The Horror Show). In Gravity Comics Massacre, he manages to combine some familiar horror elements with his own vision for a new and original tale. Think Texas Chainsaw Massacre meets Nightmare on Elm Street with a pinch of Buffalo Bill … Continue reading
