    Barbie Wilde’s “THE VENUS COMPLEX” (Book Review)

    Serial killers are assholes, by and large. But that doesn’t mean they’re stupid. Intelligence is no defense against psychosis, after all. It just makes them potentially more interesting to listen to, as their minds yammer endlessly inside their brains.

    And so it goes with Michael Friday, the none-too-humble narrator of Barbie Wilde’s alarming first novel, The Venus Complex. The guy’s a total dick, and we’re stuck in his head. But the deeper we go, the more gripping it gets.

    VIDEO: NZ’s master of transgression David Blyth at work on new film “GHOST BRIDE”

    dblythPhoto: ANGEL MINE (1979)

    David Blyth, who first caused a scandal in his native New Zealand with the film ANGEL MINE in 1979 (the public outcry helped along, no doubt, by the fact that the film was the recipient of funding from the then-newly established New Zealand Interim Film Commission), followed by DEATH WARMED UP in 1984 (which was given a special jury award at the Festival International de Paris du film fantastique et de science fiction by  none other than Alejandro Jodorowsky) and most recently the trio of role-playing horror hybrids BOUND FOR PLEASURE, TRANSFIGURED NIGHTS and WOUND, is back in the director’s chair for a film that he figures is “less likely to be banned”: GHOST BRIDE.

    Looking back at the BOOK OF THE DEAD

    As famed writer, editor, musician and vanguard to the Splatterpunk literary movement John Skipp comes aboard the Fangoria terror team (with his new monthly column NIGHTMARE ROYALE – here), the occasion serves as a good excuse to assert Skipp’s credentials in the horror universe by celebrating the underappreciated and visionary zombie short story anthology he co-edited with Craig Spector, THE BOOK OF THE DEAD.

    “VIDEO NIGHT” (Book Review)

    I’m gonna venture a little prediction here:Adam Cesare is a Fango superstar in the making. Of all the new writers busting out on the scene — and there are some great ones, without a doubt — Cesare’s the young guy with the greatest encyclopedic gorehound know-how, blistering cinematic pace, unquenchable love of both fiction and film, and hell-bent will to entertain.
