Well today is the day. The forces of evil tried hard to throw that salty ass monkey wrench in our game, but we persevered … kinda. The Rave: Lucky Number 13, my debut visual novel, is officially available for purchase. The catch is that it’s only available in PC format. Browser and mobile (Android) versions are hopefully soon to come. God damn technical difficulties. SMH. I’m also targeting both Google Play and Steam, with their lofty ass requirements and waiting period, but for now, you can buy it on itch.io. (just click the title up there!) Beyond that, I had a blast with 31 Days of Horror. I’ll try to archive it so it’s easier to revisit in the future. Til then, Happy Halloween and keep horrorin’!...

I’m a fairly old school dude. Unlike people who shall remain nameless (ahem, Jimmy O'shea Chase), I at least try to give these millennial trends a chance before summing ‘em up as suck. Still, my track record with new shit isn’t very good. This spans from movies to music … by God a lot of this newish music just fuckin’ blows. With that in mind, I was very apprehensive about giving Fear Town USA the old gander. I skipped over it several times because it just sounded like one of those Kings of Horror flicks, which are flat out terrible more often than not. And when I learned it was a horror-comedy, I was even more iffy, because comedy is highly subjective. But OHH boy was I trippin’ because as the kids say, this movie is the tits! Fear Town USA takes on the dubious challenge of trying to wrap a multitude of core plots into one story. We’ve got the four virgin nerds on a mission to finally score some sex, in addition...

As Halloween approaches, the butterflies start to flutter, the anxiety creeps in, and the stress level soars through the roof. Nothing signifies just how close we are to release (giggity) like the great cover reveal. Well, I guess it’s technically the game menu screen. Any way, this design is based on the very same cover for the original story I created nearly six years ago to the day. I wasn’t sure about how much I wanted to retain, but I ended up keeping everything intact, for the most part. Name and all. The design itself is mostly a minor cosmetic update. Brighter reds in the blood, more realistic knife, etc. The little details. Don’t tell my wife that though. She put a lot of work into this.While there’s still a couple days to go for the visual novel, the ebook version of The Rave: Lucky Number 13 is available on Amazon. I published it under my Blake Jeckel alter ego, mainly, because I didn’t have a lot of faith in. I honestly think this...

Can’t even write this post with the same kinda zest I normally would considering all the technical difficulties that went into it. UGH. But I won’t let no virtual voodoo get me down, so here’s the lowly anticipated follow up to the faptastic indie video game we highlighted yesterday, Don’t Get Caught 2 … the review! ...

In our first two days of horror, we took an extended look at how and why us crazy humans use horror movies to scare ourselves. These days, my idea of self-induced terror involves strapping on the headphones … cause it’s much more frightening with headphones … cuing up the videos, and, well … you know There’s actually a little video game about it. And little ole me decided to ramble up a review on it.   (Source: https://www.youtube.com/)...

I love when a plan comes together … mainly, cause they usually never fuckin’ do for ole Schleprock over here. Even doing this video was a painful experience filled with F-bombs and excruciating butthurt. SMH. Technical issues. But it’s something I’ve been looking forward to and it’s out of the way now. As for Rabid, it’s a very interesting Canadian horror movie property that has the rare distinction of carving up a remake that was arguably better than the original. And of course, it’s always cool to see wrestlers pop up in a movie. Mad props to the Soskas on this one. Sexy asses. (Source: https://www.youtube.com/)...

Wrestling Masks: Beyond Halloween Costumes

Tis the season when we dress up in wacky costumes, celebrate all things creepy, and gorge on enough candy to make at least ten new diabetes. When it comes to straightforward costumes that sledgehammer the point home, they don’t get any more simple and effective than a good mask. Shit, a lot of times, that’s all you need. Complement it with a T-shirt and jeans, and you’re good to go! While I’m sure they generate far more sales during Halloween season, in the world of pro wrestling, masks are a white hot accessory year-round. The mask fits right into the imaginative and vibrantly colorful environment that is wrestling, where larger than life personalities command the stage. Nowadays, we tend to associate it with iconic grapplers such as the great Rey Mysterio. But in my early days of fandom, masked wrestlers were mainly jobbers. Jabronis. Or as me and my Cousin Drew would call ‘em, “the weak guys”. When you saw a cat like Agent Steel in the ring, you automatically knew the dude standing across...

We came slashing through with the Four Horsemen of Death. We’ve dedicated sizable slivers to the maniacal Firefly Family, Charles Lee Ray and Hoghead 😱. But there are other, lesser known horror movie characters who are just as evil and delightfully wicked as their iconic counterparts. In this long ass 26-minute video, I introduce five horror movie legends who deserve a blood-soaked pedestal of their own. Good luck!!! ...

As we’ve learned from clowns, slashers, and vampires (oh my!), horror movies come in a wide variety of sub-genres. One of my favorite subs, at least to watch, is exploitation … but of the pervy persuasion. Sexploitation flicks, at their raunchiest, blur the lines of R-rated and softcore porn. And while not all sexploitation movies fall in the horror category, the best usually do. This is where you’ll find classic films like the totally bonkers Cannibal Holocaust, which crosses quite a few sub-genres under the horror umbrella. Where lesser known directors like Joe D'Amato are viewed as legends and celebrated for their artistic vision. Although they’ll always be in style to some degree, I think the sexploitation sub had it’s most prolific run back in the 70’s, which just seemed like an interesting and fun time to be alive. Some of the most entertaining horror flicks I’ve recently watched come from this era, including the insanely awesome Evil Come, Evil Go. As I mentioned in my video review (which is fuckin’ terrible), this movie gets...
