Magazine Review: Splatterpunk – Issue 5

I don’t know about you, fellow horror reader, but as soon as I finished reading issue 4 of Jack Bantry’s Splatterpunk zine, I immediately began my impatient wait for issue number 5 to come off the presses. My impatience wasn’t due to any kind of lag between issues (actually, the next one came out pretty quick), but rather because that issue was so good, so full of great writing and visceral images, that it … Continue reading

Film Review: Lyle (2014)

Lyle-2014-Movie-3

SYNOPSIS:

A mother’s grief over the death of her toddler leads to horror.

REVIEW:

It may ruffle feathers, but I’ve never been able to get into “Rosemary’s Baby.”  Though I enjoy Ira Levin‘s novel and appreciate Roman Polanski’s artful interpretation (we’ll pretend this year’s made-for-television debacle never happened), that nagging sensation of being bored to tears still carries over from my first viewing as a child.  I’ve tried to fight it, friends.  Believe … Continue reading

Podcast: Horror News Radio – Eps 72

hnr-72-promo-500

Life After Beth (2014) proves that a zombie romcom is a difficult proposition regardless of how fantastic the cast may be. Dane DeHaan, Aubrey Plaza,  John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon and Anna Kendrick cannot save this humorless, lifeless horror comedy from writer/director Jeff Baena. All the pieces are there, they just never assemble into a cohesive whole. Sad.

Afflicted (2013), on the other hand, proves how a well constructed story and a pair of leads with authentic bro-chemistry … Continue reading

Film Review: The Bunnyman Massacre (2014)

The-Bunnyman-Massacre-Artwork

SYNOPSIS:
Joe’s violent brother, armed with a chainsaw and an over-sized, bloody bunny suit, goes on another rampage gathering fresh supplies for his special brand of beef jerky.

REVIEW:
The Bunnyman Massacre wants to be The Texas Chainsaw Massacre in a big, hungry way. In many ways, it succeeds; in many more ways, it fails miserably. There is an audience for this type of masochistic nonsense void of story and lacking … Continue reading

Weaving together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales, the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more notorious inhabitants.
