    Q&A: Indie splatterfest “MULCH” is making compost

    There is a charm to the cheap and dirty gorefest. Those who turn their noses up at it and pretend to only have the most refined tastes in their monster movie stabfests are kind of crashing bores. For the rest of us, a good cheesy piece of high camp loaded with grotesque practical FX and mom’s minivan hits the spot. Done well, a movie like this takes us back to our glory days of a movie night with good friends and enough karo syrup to choke a Labrador. You can feel the fun the actors are having on screen, their joy is infectious and when the brains start to spray all over the walls in pneumatic jets, everything feels right with the world.

    Q&A: Writer Pat Mills on 25+ years of superhero hunting with “MARSHAL LAW”

    Originally launched in 1987, MARSHAL LAW was a gob of spit in the face of superhero comics; a gleefully violent satire of the genre. The titular character was a superhero hunter, a war veteran living in a dystopian future city, tasked with hunting down the array of superpowered criminals and psychopaths created and then discarded by the US Government. In the words of the Marshal: “I hunt heroes. Haven’t found any yet.”

    EXCLUSIVE “FRESH MEAT” clip is Going Somewhere

    Regarding FRESH MEAT, MEET THE FEEBLES’ co-writer Danny Mulheron’s latest, the term “cannibal comedy” should have most Fango fans on board. But if you need a little extra incentive, our exclusive clip—with its New Zealand accents, rifle brandishing, short shorts and gentleman wrapped in a sleeping bag repeatedly run over—should give you a pretty good idea of the gonzo tone in store.

    Lesbian Necrophilia, Violent Hemorrhaging warns “HEMLOCK GROVE” Red Band Trailer

    Netflix’s original programming and their all-in-one-day approach is about to get good deal gory and a good deal sudsy. Based on the novel from Brian McGreevy and produced, shepherded and partly directed by Eli Roth, HEMLOCK GROVE—as evidenced in its red band preview—revels in all manner of small town illicit deeds.

    HEMLOCK premieres this Friday, April 19; optimal placement for weekend gorging on this tale of the eccentric residents of a dilapidated former Pennsylvania steel town and the murder of 17-year-old Brooke Bluebell.  Through the investigation, the town’s seamier side, including werewolves and bio-experiments, is exposed, revealing nothing is what it seems.

    I’ve seen two episodes so far, and the above footage is a pretty accurate look at the fun to expect. I’m all in what’s clearly both TWIN PEAKS-inspired and a product of post-AMERICAN HORROR STORY TV. This is bloody, soapy, hammy all-over print horror. There’s a review forthcoming, and I’m looking forward to setting aside more than a few hours to catch the rest.

    “SHOCK TOTEM 6″ (Book Review)

    SHOCK TOTEM is a genuine oddity in the horror/dark fiction field. Not quite a magazine, not quite an anthology series, but quite a bit of both, it’s published semi-regularly in gorgeously-designed trade paperback (and ebook) form. Which is to say, they don’t publish on a tight schedule. They only publish once they think it’s good enough to legitimately share.
