If You Find This Envelope in Your Mailbox… You’re Doomed

CINEMA IN EXTREMIS: The Beautiful Body Horror of HE TOOK HIS SKIN OFF FOR ME

Many works of surreal cinema bear equally baffling titles, but I can confidently say the title of Ben Aston’s 2014 short film HE TOOK HIS SKIN OFF FOR ME represents 100% truth in advertising. It’s also a pretty amazing work of “extremist drama” that’s more touching than you might expect. Adapted from a short story […]

CREEPYPASTA: The VHS Tape Bore His Name… and Its Grisly Contents Sealed His Doom

The origins of today’s gruesome viral tale are still something of a mystery, but the details appear to have be excerpts from the personal journal of a teenager in Belleville, Illinois, who identifies himself only as “John.” The first known entries begin shortly after his family relocated to the new city from Florida, where John […]

Animation Aberration, Part 2: Ten More of Japan’s Goriest Anime

Japanese anime has proven to be a very flexible medium — especially when it comes to animated violence and gore. That may explain why the horror genre has found a nice little niche within the anime domain, as opposed to western animation. I previously covered ten bloody and disturbing horror anime [here’s that list, if […]

They Don’t Skimp on the Meat at Halloween Horror Nights’ TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE Maze

Slashback! This Gory Italian HALLOWEEN Clone Lives Up to its Name: ABSURD!

This splattery oddity goes by about half a dozen different names — most of which, not surprisingly, have little to do with the content of the notorious film itself, which earned a dubious spot on the UK’s infamous “Video Nasties” list of banned titles. Many fans of vintage Euro-horror first discovered ABSURD during the bootleg tape-trading […]

Dr. Wertham’s Dilemma: The Rise & Fall of EC Horror Comics

Today’s gory horror films owe more than a debt to the chest-bursting, intestine-twirling Senate Subcommittee-defying horrors of EC Comics’ 1950s “funny books” — TALES FROM THE CRYPT, THE VAULT OF HORROR and THE HAUNT OF FEAR. When comic books first hit newsstands in the 1930s — all in color for a dime — they were […]
