Monster Mash: The Creepy, Kooky Monster Craze In America: 1957-1972 by Mark Voger (book review).

The title ‘Monster Mash: The Creepy, Kooky Monster Craze In America: 1957-1972’ gives away what this book by Mark Voger is about. It’s just a shame, it has such a rubbish cover, even if it is an illustration of a Don Post mask, which I’m sure would put off readers who would really enjoy the […]

Weirder Shadows Over Innsmouth edited by Stephen Jones (book review).

This is another collection of Lovecraft homage, a cottage industry in the horror genre. Getting Lovecraftian stories published seems to be relatively easy nowadays, like shooting fish in a barrel. Before getting to the text, I want to mention the fine ink lines on the splendid illustrations by Randy Broecker. They reminded me of the […]

The Gift (2015) (film review by Frank Ochieng).

Traditionally, horror films and psychological thrillers follow a predictable path in their themes of dot-to-dot suspense. Rarely does a suspense piece deviate away from the formulaic blueprint that make these types of flicks the familiar frightfests they are in conception. However, the crafty Joel Edgerton, as the juggling movie mastermind sporting directing, acting and writing […]

Dark Was The Night (2015) (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

The deep woods holds the secret of a mysterious creature that moves fast and leaves dead bodies around. The narrative suggests it may be an Indian spirit or it may be a prehistoric creature or it may be some kind of devil. The story advances deliberately and slowly as a small town sheriff and his […]

The Happiness Of The Katakuris (2002) (film on Blu-ray/DVD review).

‘The Happiness Of The Katakuris’ is one of the most stupid and idiotic films you will ever see, surreal, baffling and mindbending, yet it is oddly catching in a strange sort of way. Coming from Japan and directed by Tashiki Miike, it tells the tale in glorious colour of four generations of an unfortunate family […]

Creep (film review by Frank Ochieng).

The disturbing and mind-bending ‘Creep’ certainly startles with its sense of sophisticated salaciousness, so why should it not meet the expectations of its haunting and hallucinatory hedonism? After all ‘Creep’ was from the handlers that gave fright fans unnerving and twitchy thrills in fear-monger flicks such as ‘Paranormal Activity’ and ‘The Purge’. Granted that the found footage genre has become rather obligatory but […]

Found Footage Horror Films by Alexandra Heller-Nicholas (book review).

When I first saw the title ‘Found Footage Horror Films’, I wasn’t sure what to think. Was it out-takes or removed scenes from known horror films? There could be a book on such a subject. Nope. Alexandra Heller-Nicholas’ book focuses on the likes of ‘The Blair Witch Project’ (1999) where the border between knowing something […]

The Twilight Zone . . . say it again, Sam.

These are all the times Rod Serling says “The Twilight Zone” on camera. It does not include outros since he is off camera for those. Rod Serling did not appear on screen until the episode “A World of His Own” which is included in this supercut as the first clip. He did not always say […]

Walking Dead season 6 reveals.

Don’t watch this unless you want to hear a few Walking Dead season 6 spoilers – it’s the highlighted clips from the Conan show (that’s Conan O’Brien, not the Barbarian) on US TV with some of the Walking Dead cast. They did this bad boy as a Comic-Con special.
