    Q&A: Matt Weinhold, The Comedian With a Collection To Die For

    To many horror fans, the weight of your fandom is measured by the size of your collection. And for good reason: as conventions start growing with record-number attendances around the country, blue-blooded genre nuts are separating themselves from the rookies by hitting up the myriad booths of memorabilia and artwork that take up the exhibitors floor. Even better, though, is when these die-hard fright fanatics do good by the genre that they love, whether it’s by making films, such as esteemed collector (and now, cultural benefactor) Guillermo del Toro, or sporting it at their place-of-business, such as Kirk Hammett with his horror-inspired guitars.

    “GHOST” #1 (Comic Review)

    The multi-faceted Dark Horse Comics has had a low-flying hero universe for over twenty years. From strange, one time characters such as The Moth and The Escapist to the largely popular Hellboy (who’s even crossed paths with Batman and Robin at one point), the company has been slowly building its stable of do-gooders through solid storylines and dedicated readers. One of the most well-known characters is Ghost, a woman not quite living but not quite in the grave, whose mission it is to stop the hordes of hungry demons eager to nibble at our tender souls. Forever trapped in a semi-corporal state, she attempts to keep the gates of Hell from opening on our world while searching for answers to her own forgotten past. After making semi-regular appearances throughout the Dark Horse-verse, Ghost is once again the star of her own series, creating a launching pad for new and old readers alike.

    “BLACK SCIENCE” #1 (Comic Review)

    If horror has taught us anything, it’s that playing with science is a good way to ruin your day. Unchecked experiments can lead to creatures, zombies, killer plants and human/fly cross-breeds of insane proportions. Unless you’re Velma, it is generally regarded that if you spend a disproportionate amount of your time messing with the fabric of the universe, you will be killed, or at least, very miserable. With BLACK SCIENCE, this is exactly what happens to a poor group of stranded dimension travelers as they desperately search for a way home. Facing alien monsters in an unknown landscape, this new title from Image Comics mixes sci-fi nostalgia with the uncertainty of “what lies beyond,” creating the perfect storm of 70s throwback and modern horror aesthetics.

    Mark 2014 with Charitable Women in Horror UK Calendar

    As we’ve come to annually explore, via both coverage and critique, February has been carved out to celebrate Women in Horror. But of course, celebrating talented women filmmakers in genre and beyond is not, and should not be, some once-a-year ritual. Thus, London-based filmmaker Melanie Light has inventively crafted a reminder that women are creating and producing exciting and provoking genre film every day of the year: a calendar. What’s more, the Women in Horror UK calendar aims to divert from traditional, or cliched, pin-up style, instead highlighting the work of twelve UK horror artists (including cenobite and author Barbie Wilde, THE WOMAN star Pollyanna McIntosh and director Prano Bailey-Bond) and donating profits to worthwhile foundations.

    Q&A: Skinny Puppy Video Director Jason Alacrity talks “illisiT” clip

    Influential horror-stained Industrial/electronic outfit Skinny Puppy pioneered the blending perverse performance art with abstract sonics smashed into dance-floor friendly structure. Throughout the 1980s right until present day, lyricist/frontman Nivek Ogre and aural architect cEvin Key have ensured that the visual component of SP mirrors the music, with a series of stage shows and video clips that are violent, sensual, surreal and often shocking.

    Waxwork Reveals Release, Jay Shaw Art for “ROSEMARY’S BABY” Vinyl

    There are few times when the lovely, dreamy, if still unnerving, “la la la’s” of Christopher (Krzysztof) Komeda’s ROSEMARY’S BABY score are not floating in my head. For many devotees of the Roman Polanski classic and its fantastic soundtrack, I imagine it’s the same. Now, in the midst of vinyl OST resurgence, Waxwork has revealed the details and (as usual) excellent Jay Shaw artwork for their anticipated, remastered release of the album.
