Christma(dnes)s VII

It may have taken me longer than usual to assemble this year’s selection of frightfully festive fun, but I think the sheer volume of material I dug up was worth it. After all, why should I just focus on the Phantasm ornament or the “Krampus in the Corner” when there’s so much more out there? …

But if you know about the event and don’t understand why it’s so important, here’s a little song for you: Admittedly the subject of the song sells rather than rents movies and …

Christma(dnes)s VI

Ho Ho Horror! I’m making like the above creepy Santa and have plenty of treats for you. The first of which is a stencil for making a type of elf known as a “Brownie.” Although it was originally intended for use on Halloween, you can also use it for Christmas without anyone complaining. Speaking of …

Video Store Day Is Here!

Today marks another year in the ongoing battle against blandness in viewing choices. Far too many retail stores are minimizing their physical media selections and that can’t be a good sign for rental stores. Although the stakes are higher than ever, there is still hope for those who enjoy more than just mainstream fare. More …

Yet More Christma(dnes)s

Season’s Bleedings! Like Santa Claus, I’m reaching into my bag of goodies to find the best horrorday treats for you all. And you don’t even have to leave me any cookies! Fans of H.P. Lovecraft should remember his wonderful Christmas poem “Christmastide,” which was surprisingly free of cosmic horrors and racism. What they might not …

Baron Dixon wears many hats. He’s an artist, musician animator, poet and has had numerous on and off screen duties on indie horror films like American Alien and Blood Bath of the Bat-Beast. He’s also an evil dictator. Okay, he only plays one (among many other roles) on the beautifully bizarre sci-fi web series Tyrannovision, …

Still More Christma(dnes)s

To borrow a phrase from Veronique Chevalier, Ghoultide Greetings and Hapless Horrordaze! I hope you enjoy the above image; it’s a painting called “In the Wild North” by Ivan Shishkin. I think it perfectly captures the duality of the season. If you look at it one way, it’s a beautiful winter’s night. But if you …

Free (Legal) Download: Swamp Foetus

Like any Halloween enthusiast, I’m a huge fan of Pumpkinrot. I love the creepy, distinctive look of his props and keen eye for setting up (and photographing) great scenes. So when I found out the man behind that website had made a short film, I was ecstatic. Even moreso when I learned it had won …
