31 Days, Day 27: THIS IS NOT A REVIEW – Adam Loves OLDBOY

I need to post about Oldboy. It’s an amazing movie. My friend introduced me to it 15ish years ago. Part of the Trilogy. Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Oldboy, and Lady Vengeance. I recommend watching them all. I don’t remember Mr. Vengeance and only remember a beautiful snow scene in Lady Vengeance. Oldboy is a tragic…

31 Days, Day 27: MANSFIELD 66/67 Presents the LaVeyan Component of Jayne Mansfield’s Life – Complete with Greek Chorus and Creative Storytelling Technique

Jayne Mansfield was a beautiful, buxom blonde starlet oft compared or even mistaken for Marilyn Monroe. Her fame never reached Marilyn status, though her story is a far more interesting one, right down to her bizarre connection to the Satanic High Priest, Anton LaVey. In the new documentary, opening tonight on the big screen, Mansfield…

31 Days, Day 25: Berwanger’s Mario Paint Music Video “Horror Show” is Everything You’ve Ever Wanted and More

Josh Berwanger of the 90s synth powered indie rock outfit, The Anniversary, is releasing a new album on Halloween.

31 Days, Day 22: SPLATTER MATTERS, But Garrett is Pretty Pissed About It

Previously on Splatter Matters: I watched a shitload of Herschel Gordon Lewis movies and fell in love with the man, despite not necessarily loving his movies. But today, that may change.

31 Days, Day 20: A Real Friday Fight – Mondo and thepaintedman Don’t Even Remotely Agree About RED STATE

[Editor’s Note: Just a reminder that in October, Friday Fight becomes Friday Frights and we’ve been covering something every Friday this month.

BHFF 2017: HAGAZUSSA is a Deep, Contemplative, and Confidently Executed Nightmare (31 Days, Day 18)

It has been a while since I sat down and watched a true-blue art film. When I picked out Hagazussa – A Heathen’s Curse I assumed it was just another horror movie and was shocked by what I found. Instead of shrills and thrills, I got a nearly silent period piece about psychosis and medieval…

BHFF 2017: It Sure Ain’t The Newlywed Game – GAME OF DEATH (31 Days, Day 17)

Foreign directors Sébastien Landry and Laurence Morais-lagacé break into the American film scene with their new horror film, Game of Death.

BHFF 2017: Rachael Travels TO HELL AND BACK with Kane Hodder (31 Days, Day 15)

Being a horror fan, you know of the major horror icons. Though this man did not star in the first Friday the 13th, when someone says “Jason” in regards to that series, many minds think of Kane Hodder. He’s iconic. His posture, boldness he brought to the character, and one of the most famous and…

[Editor’s Note: ICYMI, all October, Friday Fight becomes Friday Frights and we’ve been covering something every Friday this month.] Uninvited‘s trailer begins with a voiceover that says, “They say cats have nine lives, but you only have one!” this says pretty such everything you need to know about this wonderful, wonderful piece of cinematic trash.…

A Few Badass Monks Set Forth on a PILGRIMAGE

Despite an almost complete and total submersion into the world of horror and Halloween for the month of October, I do welcome the occasional break from guts and gore. This is what I expected when popping in the newly released Blu-ray of Pilgrimage. With a cast of action stars like Spiderman: Homecoming‘s Tom Holland, The…

31 Days, Day 9: Warner Archive’s THE HIDDEN is a Quirky 80s Gem, Finally Released on Blu-ray

Earlier in the year, buzz about Twin Peaks returning was in high gear. Everyone started their rewatches and conversations flourished. Obviously, the one person that would be in every conversation would be the man who played the incomparable Kyle MacLachlan. Driving to work, listening to the Shock Waves podcast, one of the crew mentioned that…

[Editor’s Note: Blaine is currently serving as the Feature Film Programmer for Atlanta’s Buried Alive Film Festival.
