The path of Excess leads to SAW 3D.

A post-Halloween tradition is to bust out the Minutemen as a palate cleansing device. I like Minutemen a lot. ‘The Punch Line’ got me hooked. Eighteen songs, fifteen minutes; they’re both complex and simple, dealing with deep context, diverging abstracts and yet, still very accessible. The music isn’t obtuse. It’s not the 1-2-3-4 punk rock …

Ghost of Horror Trivia

Anyone who has ever seen Hammer’s When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth has probably wondered by why they stuck in two photographically-enlarged lizards dressed up like dinosaurs in the middle of a film filled with Jim Danforth’s masterful stop-motion animation work. Danforth had actually planned on including two dueling stop-motion allosauruses, but the idea was vetoed …

Bad Whoremoans, BAD WHOREMOANS


Bad Whoremoans Bad Whoremoans I avoided certain genres of music for a while because after one or two attempts to get into them, the handful of bands I optioned all sounded the same. Psychobilly was this to me for a while – I just could not get into it because everyone I listened to was …

While browsing through the recent “Gravedigger’s Local 16 Flashback” entry, I couldn’t help but find myself drawn to the “Cool cover art” entry. Although the website noted in it (Critical Condition Online) is the undisputed king of online VHS cover art collections, I was inspired to see if there were any other sites devoted to …

Mothra Madness


Mothra is actually based on a serialized Japanese novel called The Luminous Fairies and Mothra. Mothra was supposed to battle the unused monster Bagan in a never-realized 1990 film called Mothra vs Bagan. Elements of that script, along with the similarly never made Godzilla vs Gigamoth, were utilized in the 90’s version of Godzilla vs. …

Tales From The Crypt

Though its initial run on HBO ran from 89-96, I didn’t catch ‘Tales from the Crypt’ until syndication since I didn’t afford the premium cable. But when it finally was distributed among the networks, I lived far up north that I caught it on a Canadian station that played in hour-long chunks every weekday at …
