Dead End Drive-in (Dystopian Dayglo Horror Drama)

  Described by none other than Quentin Tarantino as his favorite film in the “Exploration” subgenre, Brian Trenchard-Smith’s Dead End Drive-in receives a jam packed 2-disc UHD special edition from the fine folks at Umbrella Entertainment. A queasy mix of dayglo Post-Nuke goodness and genuinely effective social satire, this film is a personal favorite for […]

Obscurial – Heretic (Puncture Wound Death Metal)

  Alright, let’s start with this is probably the best metal band to come out of Malaysia, ever. I don’t want to hear about anyone else after this, and don’t you dare try to say “well, what about X,” because I’ve heard it all and I know already. Don’t try with me. As usual I […]

Coffin Curse (Darkly Negative Death Metal for You to Love)

  Yes, I love Chile! I want to live there! Basically every band submission I get from the country is golden. Send me a plane ticket Coffin Curse I want to hang out! Then we can celebrate your greatest release to date, The Continuous Nothing, which is rather the opposite. More like continuous awesome. In […]

The Haar (Sentimental Amorphous Beast Horror)

The Haar (Sentimental Amorphous Beast Horror)

  I’ve been trying to get more into horror with a bit more feeling behind it. Whilst I enjoy the relentless gore that many of the books I read offer, sometimes they lack any sort of real story or emotion, other than just people’s guts being forcibly ripped out. The Haar is a story about […]

Burial Ground (Italian Zombie Splatter Depravity)

Burial Ground (Italian Zombie Splatter Depravity)

  Now in the “completely bugged out” category of Cinema, Andrea Bianchi’s Burial Ground returns to amaze us all in the definitive version compliments of our friends at Severin Films. This film has confused and amused us for decades since its release in 1983 by Motion Picture Marketing and subsequent VHS edition by the legendary […]

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (First-Person Survival or Killing Chain Saw Horror)

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (First-Person Survival or Killing Chain Saw Horror)

  So, you know that movie The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, right? There’s now a new game, and I must say I was impressed. If you’re a fan of Dead by Daylight or other asymmetrical horror games, you’ll definitely want to check this out (I believe it to still be available on Game Pass, for […]

Sarcasm – Mourninghoul (Swedish Existential Death Metal)

Sarcasm – Mourninghoul (Swedish Existential Death Metal)

  This one shouldn’t have been this good. I mean, I’ve heard of Sarcasm, but I always though the name was a little, heh, sarcastic, and found it tough to step further than a few brief listens because, well, I wasn’t sure how serious they were. I curse myself for this grave error. Death metal, […]

Vulture – Sentinels (Retro Speed Thrash Metal Screaming from the Pulpit)

Vulture – Sentinels (Retro Speed Thrash Metal Screaming from the Pulpit)

  Great example here of a band evolving over the course of its career into something greater. Germany’s Vulture are still relatively new to the whole retro thrash (with some speed) scene, but in that short time they’ve learned how to hone their craft, constantly reworking and revising before release, becoming a general force in […]

Purulency – Transcendent Unveiling of Dimensions (More Than a Mere Demo Slimy Death Doom)

Purulency – Transcendent Unveiling of Dimensions (More Than a Mere Demo Slimy Death Doom)

  What a tangled mess of gross this one is. Get your cold, pasty hands off of me! I feel sick! I can’t think! Considering it’s rainy outside as I write this one, we’ll go with those bodily sensations. I want to feel revulsed. Tennessee’s Purulency, in this mere demo, take a different thematic approach […]

Haunted House Renovator (First-Person Horror Building Simulator)

Haunted House Renovator (First-Person Horror Building Simulator)

  So, I just got a key to play the Haunted House Renovator demo! PlayWay S.A. is a household name when it comes to simulator games. The demo was a must-play because it’s spooky, scary, and a simulator! I get to renovate a haunted house and potentially be terrified simultaneously. Heck, yes! You start by […]
