Rocktober Blood has the distinction of being a movie that doesn’t waste time explaining why, how, or at times, what the fuck is even happening. It’s like the director went in thinking “that’s my story and I’m sticking to it, damnit!” Unfortunately, the narrative they’re so intent on pushing fell terrifyingly flat. This movie has no gore, no great kills, no interesting characters and an overplus of nude scenes featuring the skinny ass final girl chick. I mean she was decent, but not to be spotlighting like that.I’m kinda disappointed, honestly. I recently saw a movie that appeared to have a similar plot (it was much better!) And since it is October, 31 days of whateva and all, I figure I’d give this one a try. I knew it was gonna suck. But I was at least hoping some 80’s cheese could make it fun. Deliver a few giggles. So bad it’s good kinda thing, you know? No haps. Fuckin’ terrible. On the bright side, since I am bursting with the power of positivity,...

I love crossovers. You know, like when you smoke a bowl of fire with the fungus. Or when one of your favorite wrestling chicks ends up in porn. One of my earliest crossover experiences is something that may have once sounded like polar opposites: horror movies and hip hop. A surprisingly complementing mesh of horror movies and hardcore rap, horrorcore is associated with some of the most legendary names in the industry, including Tech N9ne, ICP, and Detroit’s own, Marshal Vontavious Mathers. If we traced the roots of horrorcore, it would lead us to the notorious Fifth Ward in Houston, Texas, the foundational headquarters of Rap-a-Lot Records and the Geto Boys. The Geto Boys showed a darker, even more violent side of gangsta rap with the introduction of the classic Assassins, a track that goes beyond gunplay with tales of decapitation and lyrics such as “kill that bitch like Freddy!” Forever late, I just recently learned that the original version of the song was performed by the original version of the group: The Ghetto Boys, with a lineup...

Sweetest Day of Death

The roots of Sweetest Day can be traced back to the early 1900’s in a burgeoning town situated along the US-Canadian border. According to legend, a man by the name of Sava Ho was head over heels for a young woman many locals hailed as one of the most beautiful in town. Sava, a captain in the Coast Guard at the time, had no trouble attracting the woman’s attention. Capturing her undivided affection, however, was another story. Some might say he was the poster boy for chivalry. And when it came to courting his beloved, Sava spared no expense. Top of the line home furnishings. Fully stocked pantry. The fanciest sweaters and corduroy pants for all six of her children. Try as he may, it just wasn’t enough. There were always rumors. Whispering throughout the neighborhood about the pampered damsel who was both unsatisfied and unfaithful to the man who held her down for so long. Until one day, a fed up Sava groveled to his lady, “What’s it gonna take, huh? What...

Freddy’s Gay!?

I’m not shy in expressing my love for Freddy Krueger. I love everything about him. The character. The concept. The movies, in spite of their extra thick cheesiness, are all great IMO. I even wrote a screenplay prequel of Freddy’s origins with the aid of my homeboy Jimmy. The most epic story you never heard. And of course Fred topped out my list in the Four Horsemen of Death, our most popular day of horror, thank you. I’ve seen every Freddy flick countless times, but it wasn’t until nearly 30 years later that I noticed some glaring themes poking out of one particular entry. A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge will be remembered for two things: that chilling opening scene on the school bus, and being one of the gayest horror movies in history. Picking up on just how fuckin’ hilarious the shit was all these years later, I do some research and run across articles such as How a Nightmare on Elm Street 2 Became an Iconic Gay Horror Film (after years...

Vampires, Bitch!

I think most horror fans would agree that vampires are the coolest of so-called movie monsters. They boast superhuman strength. They travel with the greatest of ease. They’re rockstars in the sack. And they ooze so much machismo, that they can glamour a bitch out of her social security number and Facebook login just like that. Plus, the most historically known vampire is named after me. Just saying. In the film world, vampire movies are hit or miss. And considering how many movies suck nowadays, that’s definitely a good thing. Cause it’s like a 50/50 chance that you’ll run across something decent. Seriously, there are a lot of quality vampire flicks out here from so many eras, too. My first love was The Lost Boys. Probably in my Top 10 All-time Favorite movies. Vampires just don’t get any cooler than David and the boys.Ohhh … also can’t forget Vamp, which I saw when I was probably too young to be watching it. Even back then, I could tell that this movie set out...

On this day of horror, we pay homage to the five creepiest, scariest wrestling characters of all the times. Evil laughing like a mufucka!!!   (Source: https://www.youtube.com/)...

About half way through seems like just the right time for a cheap plug. It’s the reason we’re here. The Rave! I wrote this little horror story about six years ago. My very first one, too. I was so unsure about it that I had to attach a pen name to it … cause it sucked! However, the story itself, the concept, the premise, is something I think has potential, so I decided to re-animate it in the form of a visual novel. Picture it: a drug-fueled underground party in the abandoned abomination that once housed Detroit’s Packard Plant … with a cannibalistic madman lurking in the background. I just couldn’t let it die!   I talked about visual novels in videos and few other places, but what we basically have here is a book/novel with mostly still images, music and sound effects, packaged into an app that runs on virtually any device. This form of visual storytelling encourages interaction by allowing readers to get involved and make choices at various points, which is why...

What are people saying about PSYCHOTIC INTERLUDE?

What are people saying about PSYCHOTIC INTERLUDE?Thanks to mind-blowing advances in technology, the world is more interactive than ever. From video games to porn 😁, the content we love to consume is being purposefully designed in ways that allow us to dig in and really get hands on. This granular plateau of interactivity has crossed over into the world of creative writing, where visual novels like The Rave as well as conventional ebooks are giving readers an opportunity to enjoy their cherished pastime on an even deeper level. This type of interaction can be found in a book I recently picked up called Psychotic Interlude. Author TONEYE EYENOT instantly appealed to my wicked senses with a unique and compelling synopsis that let me know I was in store for something different. Having said that, nothing could prepare me for what I walked into upon thumbing through those digital pages. EYENOT’s approach to interactive storytelling … or at least one of them, as this appears to be a collection of stories …. is making the reader...

15 Of The World’s Scariest Haunted Houses

15 Of The World's Scariest Haunted HousesIf you love horror movies, then the idea of haunted houses probably sounds yummidelish. I feel the same way … more or less. There was a time when I’d look forward to these elaborately designed horror-themed adventures every Halloween season. Be it teaming up with friends, or bringing my little sister along, we headed into the coordinated depths of the unknown with the sole purpose of scaring the proverbial shit out of ourselves. Nowadays, I look at haunted houses like ‘meh’. Don’t get me wrong, the concept is still cool as fuck, but with me being so busy, plus long ass lines, being in the presence of humanoids … yeah, I’m even less of a people person north of 40 … paranoia from too much horror, too much weed, and too little faith in humanity … yeah, the thrill is gone. I am a bit bummed that I never got to experience one of those “so scary and complex we’ll give you a refund if you make...

I don’t care if you watch pro wrestling or not … when you hear the word “undertaker”, there’s one man who comes to mind: Mark Lamont Calaway, better known to wrestling nerds as The Dead Man. While the man from the darkest parts of kayfabe’s Death Valley virtually owns the name, I’d contend that another fictional character not only beat him to the punch, but arguably did the role even better. I’m talking about Uncle Roscoe, played by Joe Spinell in the 1988 horror movie classic The Undertaker. Honestly, I’d never heard of this movie until recently. But I’m glad I did, because it was pretty damn solid and got me thinking about the potential of a movie based on WWE’s phenom. Hey, it could totally happen! One day. ...
