All About Jiangshi

Are you interested in learning more about jiangshi but unable to access (or understand) Chinese sources on the matter? Or perhaps you find the idea of digging through Wikipedia or Google Books for leads on what few scholarly English language information exists on them to be less than appealing. Well, today is your lucky day …

A lot has happened since we last saw the people behind The Tunnel. Although the sequel The Tunnel: Dead End is still in the works, writer/producer/editor Enzo Tedeschi is also developing other projects. One of which is Deadhouse Films, a company devoted to both producing and distributing Australian horror and science fiction media to the …

Christmas, Tabonga Style

For the uninitiated, Tabonga (sometimes referred to as “Tabanga” or “Taranga” depending on the source) is the name of the monster in a little movie called From Hell It Came. It’s the story of a tree that walked like a man…and died like a chump. Given how it’s a 50’s monster movie that most people …

Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins

I know I already discussed Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins last year but I just had to revisit it. Especially since I discovered there are so many videos devoted to it on YouTube.

Toxic Turtle

Tomorrow will mark Gamera’s 50th anniversary since the release of his first film in 1965. It would be tempting to celebrate by sharing the trailer for the upcoming Gamera movie, but I want to discuss something truly special about the character in honor of this occasion. More specifically, Gamera’s early appearances in American pop culture. …

Sudden Chillers

suddenchillers

One of my most promising new sources of audio horror is Eric D. Cota’s Sudden Chillers. In his role as “The Chiller,” he both knows how to write and tell great original horror fiction. He also knows the importance of mood and instructs his listeners to turn down the lights and turn up the volume …

Halloween, Kava Kon Style

Some might frown at people carving anything other than a pumpkin to make a Jack O’Lanterns, but I think it’s perfectly acceptable. There are some amazing watermelon carvings out there and the whole carving tradition originally involved turnips. So pineapple Tiki O’Lanterns are fine in my book. Especially when they are accompanied by creepy music …

Music to Haunt By: The Incredible Dark Carnival

Sam Haynes Official Site The Incredible Dark Carnival, Haunt Music 2015 If you’re like me, the idea of a haunted circus leaves you cold. I’ve had to review albums based on the concept so many times that I am completely out of ideas. But at the same time I can’t blame any artist for choosing …
