This Clip Replaces WONDER YEARS Narration with Horror Music… and It’s Hilariously Creepy

This awesome little experiment was first mixed by comedian Jon Friedman nearly a decade ago… and its source material, of course, is way older still.

Metal, Madness and Murder Meet with SADISTIC INTENT in This Heavy Indie Thriller

Writer-director Eric Pennycoff has seriously deep roots in independent genre cinema; he’s an alumni of Larry Fessenden’s legendary company Glass Eye Pix, and has worked frequently with Brooklyn, NY-based production outfit Midnight Treehouse (behind the “M is for Mariachi” segment of ABCs OF DEATH 2.5 and the sci-fi short THE POD), to name just a […]

Lead Your Own Diabolical Death Cult on THE SHROUDED ISLE!

There are tons of mind-bendingly strange and confounding computer games available from the Steam community… but the H.P. Lovecraft-inspired, elegantly nightmarish “cult simulator” THE SHROUDED ISLE stands out as kind of brilliant in its doom-filled weirdness. Designed by Kitfox Games (the team behind MOON HUNTERS and SHATTERED PLANET), the scenario of ISLE is deceptively straightforward: […]

CINEMA IN EXTREMIS: Cautionary Tale or Sick Exploitation? The Controversial MEGAN IS MISSING

[Warning: Some screenshots below are quite disturbing and not safe for work.] There are many movies, across all genres, that have historically generated controversy and public outcry for tackling topics that seem on the surface to be at cross-purposes with the filmmakers’ intent. Often it’s the same old “art or exploitation?” argument that’s hounded certain […]

The greatest thing about Del Toro and the thing he loves doing is juggling those two types of films back and forth in his repertoire. After Finishing […]
