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. Thatâs not always a good thing.
I must confess to my using public transportation in the past. Yeah! … Continue reading
Weâve all done it, sometimes even in a theater.Â No, not THAT.Â Iâm talking about saying or screaming different phrases while watching a horror movie.Â These phrases may be something as simple as whispering under your breath or yelling at the top of your lungs in a crowded movie theater.Â
Most of these random outbursts are during a really horrible horror movie when there is nothing better to do then yell at the TV or … Continue reading
From the early nineteen seventies, horror movies have inspired different bands. In a way, Horror films have inspired a genre of music in itself, Heavy Metal. The one band that inspired and began the metal movement was inspired themselves, by the Horror genre. They are called Black Sabbath. The guitar player has taken his love for Horror one step further with recently making his own Horror franchise entitled ominously enough… Black Sabbath.

There are medieval restaurants with knights and maidens roaming around as you enjoy your bread and ale. There are cafĂ©âs that feature jungle animals watching you devour your … Continue reading
Fangs have historically been the center piece of most fictional characters. Vampires, werewolves and monsters all have them. Different size fangs and fang positions have existed throughout literature/theatrical history.
Fangs create the image of wild beasts such as bears, lions and wolves that we as humans have been fearful of for centuries.
Any type of fang has been a warning sign that that animal is carnivorous with us potentially being its next … Continue reading
I sit to begin this list with the background noise of Romero’s Day of the Dead playing, and it’s a great flick to have as motivation for putting together a list like the one I’m about to compile.
It’s not a part of this list, which is no slight; this list isn’t necessarily about the best, most common or most loved zombie flicks. If it was, Day of the Dead would probably be around #6 … Continue reading
Saw has ultimately become the most popular of the so-called âtorture p*rnâ franchises in existence.Â This subgenre of the horror industry has become a hotly contested subject.Â Is torture p*rn right?Â Should we support it as fans?Â Perhaps a better question to ask is, âDoes torture p*rn even really exist?â
In the Freshman Rhetoric and Composition course I teach, we call the release of Saw VI an exigence â meaning an âeventâ or âthingâ worth responding … Continue reading
Modern day Goth has evolved from the 80âs punk ties being first coined by a band manager Anthony Wilson of âJoy Divisionâ. He described the band as âGothic compared to the pop mainstreamâ the scene eventually started taking on a more âGothicâ look, dressing in darken clothing, mimicking the tall shadow filled buildings of the Gothic Period.
Goth transformed from its musical sub-culture to a way of rebelling against the average daily … Continue reading

With the advent of the prosumer camcorder, more and more âfilmmakersâ are coming out of the woodwork in a similar fashion to the infamous GWCâs of the modeling industry.Â
Basically a GWC is a âguy with a cameraâ or âguy with camera.âÂ These are males with little to no equipment who hold nude modeling shoots usually for their âprivate collection.âÂ Often, once theyâve gotten the model naked, theyâll either proposition the model or push the boundaries even … Continue reading
What is America’s fascination with holding cold blooded killers’ status at a celebrity level? The higher the body count, the more fame is pasted to the infamous name. Many choose to write books on them, make movies about them and even make fan clubs or websites devoted in their honor (or in some cases, freedom, such as Charles Manson or Tex Watson). Is this dark fascination (and sometimes extreme obsession) with these criminals growing in … Continue reading
