Rarely is there a film outside the bombastic Hollywood Action /IMAX experience I feel a need to see in the cinema. After having seen the trailer some months ago, I was almost surprised to see “A Cure For Wellness” was getting a showing in the big Cinema here in Kuopio, as I was under the assumption that it may be too experimental for their regular programming. For many films I have interest in viewing, I do my best to avoid reviews, spoilers and sometimes even the trailer. My self imposed rule also applies to bands I am planning to see of which I have never previously heard of. The element of surprise conjoined with a fresh mind clear of any bias always makes for a lasting impression – whether positive or negative. This last Thursday I met up with the owner of Skullbanger Magazine to accompany him in the 2 hour and 30 minute evening screening after having spent a long day in town amidst heavy snowfall.

Ever wonder what the NSA would do if they were spying on your Skype calls and witnessing some crazy supernatural shit going down during your calls? Well…not much, like most government entities they are worthless. However in ‘Chatter’ we get to see some strange ghost mojo go down between David (Brady Smith) and his super hot, full figured wife Laura (Sarena Khan). All the while they get some government sanctioned peeping tom looking in on their activities with ever growing concern. Cue the pseudo- sex tape shenanigans and one pissed off ghost that can cyber hop between Skype calls. One important question…where were all the boobies! Continue Reading
The Kickstarter campaign currently underway to bring the Friday the 13th and hockey masked slasher Jason Voorhees back to the video game world for the first time since 1989 has reached its funding goal!
Endorsed by the the franchise’s creator Sean Cunningham and recruiting the talents of Kane Hodder (Jason) and legendary make-up effects artist Tom Savini who has previously worked on the films, Friday the 13th: The Game pits seven camp counselors against the unstoppable Jason Voorhees. The camp counselors work together, and sometimes against each other, in an attempt to survive a night at Camp Blood. And if they are extremely lucky possibly even kill Jason.
The game is currently only multiplayer but there is still time to pledge money to help it achieve a single player mode along with other rewards. Follow the link to check out more on the game’s Kickstarter page! Hurry while there is still time left!
FRIDAY THE 13th: THE GAME KICKSTARTER PAGE
Meanwhile, party like it’s Friday the 13th!
Don’t forget! An Official Friday the 13th game is in the works being made by Gun Media and I also made this video as a tribute to that.If you get the chance go pledge on the Kickstarter page! The song originally premiered in the movie Better off Dead starring John Cussack. I thought the lyrics and sound of the song had a certain horror theme to them even though it is poppy, but it is also a little dark. So I used Friday the 13th footage and mixed it in.

It isn’t very often I get to review shorts unless they are part of an anthology of some sort but I was contacted by director David Maire and asked if I would give his short, Chateau Sauvignon: terroir a view and I thought why not, it will be a quick watch and maybe I will find something interesting. I was actually a bit surprised in what I saw actually. I was expecting perhaps a low budget affair with so-so acting but what I got was a well performed and produced thirteen minute little horror show about a winery that likes to add a little extra flavor to their house wine.

I had first heard about Bone Tomahawk WAY back when Timothy Olyphant was attached to the project and have made it a point to stay up to date on the project as it went through various obstacles to finally see the light of day. I am now happy to say that I have finally got to see the movie and that the wait for it was well worth it. The fact the movie stars Kurt Russell was enough for me to get excited to begin with, add in the bizarre story and great ensemble cast to support him and we have an instant classic on our hands.

‘DETHGASM! Because lower case is for Pussies!’ And that is the kind of the main ideology for the movie DEATHGASM. It’s go big or go home. At its heart, DEATHGASM is a horror movie for metal fans by metal fans that embrace both the good…and admittedly bad aspects of the metal genre. But for all the clichés that DEATHGASM embraces about heavy metal they do so in such a way that you can’t help but love this film both for its love of metal and its love of horror. Continue Reading
