Besta – Eterno Rancor (Crust Metal Capitalism)

Besta – Eterno Rancor (Crust Metal Capitalism)

  Yet another example of a book judged properly by its banking account. Marco Donida probably listened to Eterno Rancor as many times as I did, because I myself certainly thought of crucified snake Jesuses, a meth lab with a floating brain, a skeleton sycophant wading in toxic waste and refugee vomit with a bayoneted […]

Pandemic Express (Mosquito Mutant Tag With Assassin Mimes)

Pandemic Express (Mosquito Mutant Tag With Assassin Mimes)

  Talk about some deceptive wording. Pandemic Express is billed with the word "zombie" thrown about but zombies there are none though escape plenty. I'm not sure why everyone latched onto it as a "zombie" thing when it stands perfectly fine on its own feet if you're into mutant insect people, but I suppose for […]

The Spadina House (Lol Victorian Superpowers)

The Spadina House (Lol Victorian Superpowers)

  Goddamn I can't stop laughing at this. And that probably makes you think I hate it, but in actuality it's something else, trust me. The Spadina House proved quite difficult to review because it's rather simple to blow its cover in a second (I actually did already, you just didn't notice), so I'm conflicted […]

Do No Harm (Hippocratic Slaughter Oath)

Do No Harm (Hippocratic Slaughter Oath)

  God this is such a great film. I knew it was going to be, there was no way a doctor standing with a depressed glare at the camera, covered in blood whilst holding a scalpel, was going to be anything but graphic (and thus very good). That stare got me sold. But what sold […]

Agony Unrated (Real Hell Game Will Offend)

Agony Unrated (Real Hell Game Will Offend)

  I've played some pretty vile games throughout my life. Hell, I can remember when gore first became a "thing" in games, or at least was made more visible by offended parents complaining about it. I've seen video game filth evolve from the most primitive to the most graphic and real. So what I'm saying […]

Great Falls – A Sense of Rest (Post-Prefix Hardcore)

Great Falls – A Sense of Rest (Post-Prefix Hardcore)

  There was something to this one I couldn't find the adjectives to explain, and then it came to me, just choose a prefix or two, though I'll focus on "un." Unengaging, ungood, see how easy? Let me explain further so it's more unclear. Post-hardcore goes in one of two directions: interesting or uninteresting. The […]

Nachtstück (Creepy Woodland Being Oppression)

Nachtstück (Creepy Woodland Being Oppression)

  WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF. I caught a few shots of this animated short and knew it was going to freak me the hell out even before I watched it. The drab colors, the indeterminate bestiary of forest creatures that seem to tick off several different the phobias on the triggering checklist, the darkness, the loathing and oppression. […]

Black Viper – Hellions of Fire (Woah You Guys Do Power and/or Speed Metal?)

Black Viper – Hellions of Fire (Woah You Guys Do Power and/or Speed Metal?)

  Sheah, we do power metal and/or speed metal on occasion. Got a problem with the gap in reviews? Huh? Deal with it (sunglasses drop), because most of it sucks hard. Too old school and/or not enough modern bite. Unlike thrash, which the majority of us can give a pass to regardless of how old […]

The Subject (Sci-Fi Horror Puzzle BDSM IN SPACE)

The Subject (Sci-Fi Horror Puzzle BDSM IN SPACE)

  Puzzles? Horror? Space? Blast off (weak space and bondage jokes coming, on occasion). I've been digging more into these first-person survival romps and this is the first sci-fi-themed terror-ship I've decided to ride, mostly because the others all looked terrible and this one has spacecraft so The Subject had me gravitating towards it like […]
