Horrors of Humanity: Hot Chick And Potatoes

16_clip_image008

When I say, “she’s hot” in terms of judging the external aesthetics of a chick I usually do not mean that I need to wear oven mitts when sticking my thermometer into her juicy stuffing crevice. Although, if her internal temperature is not at 165 degrees I may run the chance of contracting salmonella after I eat…her…out. Then again, if her vaginal cavity is that hot I may be the proud owner of a burnt … Continue reading

Heya Freaks And Minx!

Well it has been a while since I have written and honestly it is because I have had no frickin clue as to what I should write about. Seems to me things are a little slow going in the horror realm as of late and frankly it is starting to urk me. Yes, I know, some of you have films you are making and some of you would love me to … Continue reading

Horrors of Humanity: Dead Gorgeous Edition

15_clip_image013

What is horrible about the world of course is a subjective and individual interpretation depending upon many psychological and sociological factors. If you ask me I say it’s all horrible and everyone and everything sucks, and you should all die. By the way, I am a hit at parties and especially Bar Mitzvah’s because I wear my swastika and carry a toaster.

In all fairness, my general attitude toward humanity is … Continue reading

11.11.11 – A Beginning to the End??

11.11.11


Yes, today is what I call the peak day for new Agers and numerologists. It also happens to be the day for a few important films to debut, though that’s just savvy marketing at work. You can read our review on the Darren Bousman release by the same title, though for me I have my eyes set on seeing “Immortals”.

I’m guessing that the search for this date will … Continue reading

Unexplained Confidential: United States of Horrornews.net

unexplained51

America the ugly. It used to be America the beautiful but somewhere along the line they tainted this land of ours. Our country is on the verge of a social and economic collapse the likes that we have never seen.

It’s like we are all the characters in a real life horror movie. I’m not a political person but you would have to be a blind not to see that the Government … Continue reading

Esoterror Sinema: The Good Sisters

5_clip_image001

Since the classic film Haxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages, cinema has been bewitched with the various guises of the occult within its frames. Yet with typical Hollywood foible, the representation of the esoteric in cinema is cursed within blasphemous misrepresentation. Most of what is illustrated on screen as actual witches or practicing magickal formula is far strayed off of its already crooked path. Although experience of metaphysical phenomena is subjective, just what … Continue reading

Macabre Families Horror Fans Wish They Could Have Grown Up With

Television families have always been a staple from every generation since the dawning of the Boob tube.

We are gonna talk about the top horror/macabre families that most horror … Continue reading

Horrors of Humanity: The Revenge of Erotica

14_clip_image004

It is mankind that is responsible for all of the horrors of the real world. It is my belief that mankind is a cosmic virus in need of eradication, but that is just the opinion of a misanthrope and irrelevant within the scope of this article. Anger, hatred, and violence are at the root of many of these horrors but are they all unwarranted? This is where the concepts of revenge and vengeance come into … Continue reading

Dai Of The Dead: David Hess

davidhess4

I think the only reason I am writing right now is to keep from losing my mind.
David Hess passed away last night off the heels of this 69th birthday. As a matter of fact, I just spoke to him on that birthday as he was getting ready to celebrate with his friends and family for dinner. The very last words we spoke to each other were “I love you.” That is probably the … Continue reading

Horrors of Humanity: Dick and Jane’s Belly

12_clip_image010

Anthropophagy is a practice traced back to the earliest of man sitting inside of a cave staring at their clansman thinking, “What’s that taste like?” Oh wait, allow me to enlighten you with some fancy stuff to make me sound smart. “Anthropophagy” is a ten-dollar word originating from some Greek squiggly things meaning “human being” and “to eat”.

For those recipients of the educational standards of the past ten years in … Continue reading

Horrors of Humanity: I Should Have Taken a Taxi

vince_weiguang_li

Correct change, paper transfers, and strange smells emanating from gibbering women in wool coats reading dime store love novels too close to their coke bottle birth control glasses is part of the experience of public transportation. Riding the bus is a wondrous glimpse into the ephemeral majesty of a mobile microcosm representing the diversity of average humanity. That’s not always a good thing.

I must confess to my using public transportation in the past. Yeah! … Continue reading

Dai Of The Dead: Femme Fatales Third Edition – Jane Toppan

Jane_Toppan

The need to be loved is a very basic staple of humanity. Each of us has yearned for love at one time or another be it from a parent, sibling, mate, or friend. When we are denied love, a hole of sorts can be felt deep in our hearts and souls but is normally either filled by someone else or is sewn up and scarred with anger. Sometimes though, an even darker feeling can creep … Continue reading

Dai-Green[1]

Dearest friends and colleagues,

We are going to a place in this column that sadly too many of us know about. We have discussed this before an each time it comes up, we all cringe at the implications that can be had when ignorance and being too overly conservative starts becoming a state of intolerance and dangerous to the creative mind. Unfortunately, we are having to discuss censorship once again as another one of our … Continue reading

“I don’t use masks or any appliances whatsoever,” proclaimed Jack Pierce about the development of his famous monster characters. The one exception to Pierce’s rule occurred with his striking initial realization of The Wolf Man in 1941. “The only appliances I used was the … Continue reading
