Dolemite (1975)

Over the years I have seen plenty of Blaxploitation flicks. My favorite are the ones starring Fred “The Hammer” Williamson. The films are often lots of fun and give a peak into a place and time unique to the films. Dolemite is a flick I’ve always wanted to check out but for multiple reasons I […]

Creature Feature: Nature Turned Nasty In The Movies (2014)

Growing up as movie obsessed youth I cut my teeth on Harryhausen dynamation epics, action movies, and whatever monster flick my folks would let me put my hands on. As I grew older I moved on to more grotesque films and pursued the goriest of the gory and the most over the top action films […]

Video Spinegrinder (2015)

I watch a lot of movies. On a year basis I watch over 500 films. By most people’s standards, that’s a lotta films. Honestly I’m often embarrassed when asked how many films I watch in a year. Sometimes it even depresses me a bit when i start to add up the hours and realize what […]

Theme ’70 (2015)

The world of zines was one that passed me by I’m afraid. I grew up in a small town and I don’t remember ever seeing any funky cool zines at local shops. In fact, during the 90’s and 00’s there wasn’t the emphasis on local that there is now. It was all about big corporate […]

So Bad, So Good 2: Electric Bookaloo (2015)

A few weeks ago I got my hands on So Bad, So Good, a book covering over 50 films perfect for a bad movie night with friends. I love that kind of stuff and regularly watch cheesy flicks. In fact, I’m an aficionado of the stuff. I really enjoyed that book (I read it in […]

World Gone Wild (2014)

My earliest action movie memory is of The Road Warrior. Every time the film played on T.V., I would watch it. Max was just such a cool character. He drove what is arguably the coolest vehicle in all of film history, sported a sweet sawed off shotgun that has the same amount of stopping power […]

Killing American Style (1990)

In recent years there has been growing momentum for cult action flicks from the 80’s that are so awful it’s unbelievable. Deadly Prey, Miami Connection, and Samurai Cop are some of the genre favs right now and I can honestly say I love all three. They make great party movies to sit around and laugh […]

The Lost Empire (1985)

Any cult fan worth their salt has seen at least one film by director Jim Wynorski. Chopping Mall, The Return of Swamp Thing, Munchie, Dinosaur Island, Ghoulies IV, Deathstalker II, the list goes on and on and on. The Guy has 96 directing credits in total, and The Lost Empire is his first. A kick […]

Weng’s Chop #4 (2013)

A relative newcomer to the world of zines (though the creators are old hands at the zine world), Weng’s Chop has grown from a decent sized cult fanzine to a mammoth journal worthy of anyone’s collection. Issue #4 isn’t an issue. It’s a book. Really. At 215 pages of magazine sized stock this thing is […]

Xerox Ferox: The Wild World of the Horror Film Fanzine (2013)

I grew up in a time when magazines were waning. Fangoria was huge, Rue Morgue was gaining ground, but other magazines were starting to fall. My access to underground zines was nil. I live in a cultural wasteland devoid all things neat-o. I knew they existed but I had no idea of how to grab […]
