Horrors of Humanity: mydeathspace.com

HorrorNews.net-Thumbnail

Welcome dear Horrors of Humanity readers . First and foremost allow me to state that it has been a sad week for the genre with the passing of Forrest J. Ackerman. Many horror fans credit this man as being very inspirational to their various horror genre pursuits. Fair enough, as Famous Monsters of Film land was a cool way to waste trees and piss off the hippies. I of course, do not make such declarations. … Continue reading

Horrors of Humanity: More Reasons to Take a Bath – Jodi Arias

Jodi_1

Beads of water quickly turn scarlet as steel repeatedly pierces naked flesh. Screams overpower the symphony of a spraying shower as the cleansing stream becomes the arterial splatter of death. The crumpling body grasps at the shower curtain in vein. Its once protecting vinyl now entangles wet and bleeding flesh as a mortuary shroud.

This is death experienced within a shower scene, one of the most famous visual examples of biological exit within cinematic horror. … Continue reading

Esoterror Sinema: Satan had black circle jerk in Dark Chamber

4_clip_image002

When I came upon the DVD Dark Chamber, not literally of course even though the cover did make my “crotchal” area stir, my hopes rose to a nice lumpy spot in my pants. Yeah that’s right, you know what Willis is talking about!

Judging a book by its cover, which is what I usually do because I am vain, judgmental, narrow minded, and have the attention span of a twelve year old … Continue reading

Horrors of Humanity: Atrocious Crimes

lambslaughter

Who says films don’t influence crime? And who cares anyway? In California, a large man wearing a Michael Meyer Halloween mask raped a woman while carrying a large knife. Donald Pleasance was not there to try and shoot him.

There’s an old Roald Dahl story called “Lambs to the Slaughter” in which a woman beats her husband to death with a lamb, which she then serves to the investigating police officers who … Continue reading

Esoterror Sinema: Belcebu, Satan and chick on a stick

3_clip_image002

I hate the terms “rock and roll” and “heavy metal” but apparently sentient humans need to prescribe labels to identify concepts. Welcome to interpersonal communications 101. The occult and old Scratch has been associated with these two genres of music for as long the various lobes and hemispheres of the human brain have been able to project insecurities and fears onto other existential concepts. Did I mention that the human race is … Continue reading

Esoterror Sinema: Would you get ‘Nude for Satan’?

2_clip_image002

This edition of Esoterror Sinema shall discuss the 1974 Italian sexploitation not so classic film Nude For Satan, or Nuda Per Satana if you prefer to sound out something more crème filled cannoli sexy. That’s not an Alfredo sauce stain on my crotch either by the way!

Let’s begin with the basics. Nuda Per Satana originally played in theaters to about a total of 500 people because the rest of Italy was … Continue reading

Horrors of Humanity: Gore and Vomit

bizBB_0005

Gore and vomit have always had a relationship, with truly gory films such as the Guinea Pig movies and the August Underground films inducing gallons of vomit across the planet.


Director Lucifer Valentine has combined the two ‘hobbies’ into a new genre he calls ‘vomit gore’. They feature vomit, and may cause the viewer to join in. I made it 11 minutes into his first film, Slaughtered Vomit Dolls, before … Continue reading

Esoterror Sinema: The Occult Cinema of H.P LoveCraft

1_clip_image002

As the stars align in weird conglomerations, this edition of Esoterror Sinema shall stick the blade of cinematic bullsh*t into the subject of occultism within the films adapted from the works of Howard Phillips Lovecraft. The literary genius of H.P. Lovecraft is well known to anyone with even the most infantile understanding of the origins of horror and understands his name does not represent the joys of knitting and scrapbooking.

Unexplained Confidential: Dead Gremlin

uc

In the bog, there is a horror writer who doesn’t know he’s a horror writer. There’s a great deal of paranoia involved when writing the paranormal. As I type one letter at a time, I feel as if my soul starts to empty into the computer. Time becomes irrelevant. It may take me an hour just to type one sentence as I float in and out of consciousness.

Something behind me … Continue reading
