    Q&A: Nader Sadek on sharing his own skin for “LIVING FLESH” & more

    Let’s just say Nader Sadek possesses a considerably more expansive view of what constitutes a “special edition” than most: The brilliant, endlessly inventive Egyptian multimedia artist/death metal architect known for devising the ghoulish stage art employed by extreme music luminaries such as Mayhem and Sunn O))) recently had strips of his own skin surgically removed and tanned to create the packaging for a unique copy of the supremely brutal LIVING FLESH, a live CD/DVD capturing a rare 2011 performance by the eponymous death metal supergroup to which Sadek serves as a kind of artistic director amidst current and former members of Cryptopsy, Morbid Angel, Behemoth, Vader and Mayhem.

    Long Live the New Flesh: Tape Heads, Romancing VHS with Vultra Video

    It’s Friday night, 1988 and you are at the video store with your family. You browse the aisles and you can’t help but be drawn to the lurid images on the VHS box covers in the section your parents won’t let you rent from. As they wander the New Releases, you pretend to be going to the Family section but when the coast is clear, you cut into a dash to Horror. Blood. Skulls. Mutated toxic maniacs. Chainsaw-wielding psychopaths. Monsters and mayhem. You thrill to the covers and wonder what exactly is lurking in these strange films – films so shocking your parents would probably throw a fit if they saw you looking at them, which only makes the experience more thrilling. Since you can’t see the movies, you spend the whole car ride home making them up in your imagination.

    “FRANKENSTEIN’S ARMY” (Tribeca Movie Review)

    Fans old enough to have unsuspectingly walked into NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD or THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE during their original runs have described feeling like they were in the hands of madmen, directors who had gone off the deep end and were taking the audience with them. I won’t make claims to future similar classic status for FRANKENSTEIN’S ARMY just yet, but parts of it gave me a similar lunatics-have-overtaken-the-asylum sensation.

    “SWAMP THING, VOL. 2: FAMILY TREE” (Comic Review)

    SWAMP THING has had as many series as the average person has fingers. Currently on its fifth run, the newest addition to the growing mythos has a found a different DC home outside of the Vertigo imprint, this time under the current DC universe, “The New 52.” Thanks to the relaunch, the hulking figure is back in the spotlight, this time with a densely rich world for him to kick ass and take names in.

    “DARK TOUCH” (Tribeca Movie Review)

    In DARK TOUCH, European director and provocateur Marina de Van transfers her now recurring theme of identity crisis and unsure footing from grown women to a young girl still in pre-pubescence. It’s this pre-pubescence that’s taken terrifying advantage of; the repercussions of which manifest themselves in a fury of psychic power and telekinesis. Of course, CARRIE will be and is a touchstone for many in the case of this Ireland-set horror story, but whereas that tale explores the fear of oncoming womanhood, DARK TOUCH is an unnerving look at it forced on someone far, far too young.
