    An Italian Horror Excerpt from Kier-La Janisse and Paul Corupe’s “KID POWER!” Book

    Kier-La Janisse and Paul Corupe, the heads of psychotronic film site Spectacular Optical are attempting to brand the SpecOp name out into a series of cinema-centric books. If you’re familiar with either of their published work—Janisse as the author of the amazing HOUSE OF PSYCHOTIC WOMEN or Corupe over at Canuxploitation!—you’ll understand the thrill in this prospect. Their first project is an anthology of essays entitled KID POWER!, focused on “child empowerment in film and television.” I’ve previously noted just how exciting and vital this can likely be to cinephiles, and as their IndieGoGo campaign hits the home stretch, am happy to give you a peek inside the book, as well as one last push to get a great piece of film writing out into the world.

It seemed a testament to the extent of digital guerrilla filmmaking, but conversations about the film itself came second to those surrounding the legality of its production. Considering the trippy and off-putting territory the film dives into, it’s easy to see why.

    Gay of the Dead: Joe Zaso, Part One

    Let’s be honest – 99% of the pants-tent-inducing content in horror films centers on hot chicks. So, straight guys and lesbians – you’re welcome. But for the 1% of content aimed at the 10% of the audience (aka The Gays), there is one name you can count on for those pants tents – horror himbo and Scream King, Joe Zaso. Actor, model, producer, and more recently cookbook writer/publisher (CAFÉ HIMBO), Joe is first and foremost a really nice guy. These days you can also see him assisting Hedda Lettuce at her Chelsea’s Bow Tie Cinemas screenings, or in print ads for Michael Kaye. Later this year, look for Joe in the 2015 calendar “Ripped Genes: The Mature Men Edition.” (I have a feeling he won’t be wearing many clothes in that one).
