Rob Zombie's Limited Edition Monsters Tee from Local Boogeyman

Rob Zombie and Local Boogeyman share another design of cadaverous cavorting inside the Spookshow International: How to make a monster baby, how to get it on! Go go zombie, go go!

“And out of the darkness the zombie did call. True pain and suffering he brought to them all. Away ran the children to hide in their beds. For fear that the devil would chop off their heads.”

Epic Movies of the 1980s: Aiming for the Extraordinary

Epic Movies of the 1980s: Aiming for the Extraordinary

The word ‘Epic’ has recently been devalued and just used to mean something that is striking or enjoyable, but the correct meaning of the word indicated narratives in the ‘Epic’ mould – those which surpass the ordinary in scale and reach heroic proportions – this applies to films too. I’m taking a look at some of the truly Epic movies from the early 1980s that showed extraordinary ambition in their story and spectacle.

“Forged by a god. Foretold by a wizard. Found by a king.”

Pazucus: Island of Vomit and Despair (2017, Brazil) Review

Charles Bukowski once said “Some people never go insane. What horrible lives they must lead!” Clearly this is not the way for the characters in Pazucus: Island of Vomit and Despair, as whilst they seem to act and look crazed and insane their lives are blighted by horrors all around them. Their insanity is reflected in Gurcius Gewdner’s film which is somewhat of a strange piece of underground genre cinema, art house horror, b-movie monster horror, and deliberately maddening genre flick that is deliberately frustrating and uneasy to pin point as to what it actually is about. The plot, if there is one to focus on, follows Carlos who is constantly vomiting…

“You won’t be coming home!”

Waxwork Records Presents STARRY EYES Vinyl Soundtrack

Waxwork Records is gearing up for the new Pet Sematary movie with a long over due re-pressing of Starry Eyes. Originally released in 2015 and sold out within hours, the score to Starry Eyes by Jonathan Snipes is a wonderful synth driven joy ride that’s both terrifying and beautiful.

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween (2018, USA / UK) Review

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween (2018)

It’s rare that I write a review of a film I really hated, but Goosebumps 2: Happy Halloween held such promise I’ll make an exception. The first film had a fair few faults of its own, such as straying from the source material. But for the most part, the original stayed true to the tone of the books and had some good comedy moments. The second film however has fewer comedic parts that made me laugh, but at least does feel true to the tone of the books – more so than the TV series – with the main plot being similar to Night of the Living Dummy.

“Halloween comes to life.”
