creepxotica

Creepxotica Official Site Creepxotica, Dionysus Records 2011 Haunted Bossa Nova, Dionysus Records 2013 Creepxotica has a rather interesting history. It’s actually a side project of the horror surf band The Creepy Creeps, which is in turn made up from former members of bands like Struggle, Tarantula Hawk and The Locust (among others). Hailing from San …

gotsunami2

Go!Tsunami Official Facebook The Tsultry Tsounds of Go!Tsunami, Deep Eddy Records 2013 What can I say about Go!Tsunami that I haven’t already said in my first review of their work? As you may have guessed, this means I love the band and their follow-up to 2009′s New Wave Order is awesome. Let’s look at how …

Freaky Tiki Surf-ari: The Return

I started the Freaky Tiki Surf-ari four years ago and find myself pleasantly surprised by how the exotica genre seems to embrace its freaky side more and more each year. Hopefully you had similar feelings about our surprise foreshadowing on the podcast. This year is no exception and I think you will find the albums …

Free (Legal) Download: Decay

decay

Back when CERN and the Large Hadron Collider were in the news, some people expressed concern it could result in black holes causing the end of the world. But what the subject of this installment of “Free (Legal) Download” reveals they really should have been worrying about zombies. Decay was actually filmed on location by …

Music to Game By IV

Just like last year, I’m here to take another look at the albums I reviewed for my “Music to Haunt By” article series with their use in tabletop role-playing games in mind. Also like last time, the order of the albums reflects the order in which I reviewed them and does not mean I ranked …

Godzilla: Rulers of Earth Volume 1

godzillarulersofearth1

It always surprises me how people are praising Marvel Studios’ strategy for the “Marvel Cinematic Universe” as if it’s something new. I guess they have forgotten how Toho did it decades ago with their daikaiju movies. I suppose one could make an argument for Universal doing it first, but since most of their stable of …

Free Zombie Music, Volume II

zombies2

The response to last year’s selection of free music inspired by(or relating to) zombies was so overwhelming that I simply had to do a follow-up. So here’s 13 more terrific (and terrifying) tunes for you. Just be sure to click on the link on the left for the free download and the one on the …

Free (Legal) Download: Guidolon The Giant Space Chicken

guidolon

Frank Wu is a man of many talents. His artwork has appeared in more science fiction and fantasy publications than I can name and movies like Earthlings: Ugly Bags of Mostly Water and Worm Free Society. In addition to being an artist, he has written stories, scientific papers and articles. That last link also reveals …

It’s Zombie Awareness Month…

zombie2

but I’m going to talk about Godzilla-related stuff instead. Granted, I’ll be doing a sequel to last year’s Free Zombie Music article, but this month my heart only belongs to kaiju. Why discuss zombies when Legendary Pictures’ Godzilla is scheduled to come out this month? After all, I can always talk about zombies next year …

Beyond Innsmouth

The_Sea_Monk

When the subject of Lovecraftian films is discussed, it’s only a matter of time before someone suggests that any film containing a “Gill Man” of sorts fits the bill. The argument is that since Creature from the Black Lagoon came out in 1954 and The Shadow Over Innsmouth was published in 1936, H.P. Lovecraft deserves …

Music to Haunt By: Legion of Shadows

jerryvayne

Nox Arcana Official Site Legion of Shadows, Monolith Graphics 2013 As you may recall from my last Nox Arcana review, I had to pass on reviewing the band’s 10th anniversary album due to a scheduling issue. Thankfully said issue has been since resolved and I can finally cover this musical tribute to Nox Arcana’s fanbase. …

Scared Stiff by the Party Monsters: Elvira’s Pinball Adventures

It seems like I’ve always known about Elvira. I know that can’t be possible, but at the same time I can’t pinpoint the exact moment I learned of her existence. I remember learning about her pinball game Elvira and the Party Monsters during one of the same family vacations that led to me discovering Rampage …

Lola Falana: The Vampira That Never Was

In 1981, Los Angeles TV station KHJ-TV was in the market for a horror host program. Although they had success with Fright Night in the past, its host Seymour (played by Larry Vincent) had passed away in 1975. Then someone got the idea to revive the program that started off the horror host boom: The …

The Casket Girls, “Sleepwalking”

Since it’s Women in Horror Recognition Month, I finally have a way to introduce the subject of today’s article. Seriously, I had no idea how to properly start this article (despite having the rest of it finished). It’s probably because it’s so hard for me to pinpoint just why I love the song “Sleepwalking.” From …

Papercraft Jiangshi

papercraftjiangshi

As much as I enjoyed last year’s Jiangshi inspired papercraft project, I wanted to focus on something a little more traditional this year. But it turns out that finding downloadable Chinese hopping vampire papercraft models online is much harder than one might think. I had originally wanted to showcase this cool jiangshi papercraft, but was …
