Halloween. All Hallow’s Eve. Samhain. The holiday associated with costumes, candy, carved pumpkins and of course, trick-or-treating. But like most holidays, these long-held traditions stem from important rituals long since forgotten. Halloween was not always just for the kiddies, and it had some very important rules that were to be followed with terrible consequences awaiting those who did not do so. The residents of Warren Valley hold their a festival on Halloween night,  turning their sleepy town into a spectacle akin to New Orleans’  Mardi Gras festivities. But some of the residents there are about to learn some very valuable lessons about this holiday and what can happen when the old rules are broken, and the warnings not heeded. Four tales of terror featuring a school principal who teaches a mischievous boy a valuable lesson, a group of kids learn the truth about a local legend that lies at bottom of the local rock quarry, a young woman is stalked by a masked stranger at the town festival, and an old-curmudgeon gets a very special trick-or-treater.…

halloween2bA year after the town of Haddonfield was terrorized by the bloody rampage of escaped mental patient Michael Myers, survivors of that night are trying to put their lives back together.

Laurie Strode, Michael’s sister and the person who “killed” Michael and effectively put a stop to big brother’s killing spree, is now living with fellow survivor Annie and her dad Sheriff Lee Brackett.

Dr. Loomis, the man many feel is responsible for the events that happened the year before, angers even more after writing a sleazy book detailing his years treating Michael along with the events of that Halloween that left so many innocent people brutally slaughtered.

As for Michael, well, no one really knows as his body never made it to the morgue it was being transported to. But his whereabouts are about to be known as Halloween is quickly approaching, and Haddonfield’s prodigal son has some unfinished business to take care of.

In a recent interview, Rob Zombie was asked why he was doing a sequel to his 2007 re-imaging of the 1978 classic (a sequel he once stated he would have no part of) to which he responded, “because I can do whatever the fuck I want“.…

Review: Meatball Machine

July 18, 2009 at 9:19 pm by  

Craving a Japanese horror, sci-fi love story? Who isn’t? Well Yûdai Yamaguchi and Jun’ichi Yamamoto’s Meatball Machine should stifle those cravings, even if its just for a little bit. It’s quite splatastic, involving alien parasites who use human bodies as their own personal battle stations, turning their hosts into bio-mechanical messes called Necroborgs. If you are one of the unlucky individuals who has one of these aliens enter your body, you find yourself completely at the mercy of your invader as you are forced to track down other Necroborg’s and engage in battles to the bloody death. The weapons used vary, but in every case these weapons are built out of you – the alien using advanced technology to transform your flesh into a variety of weapons. …

Review: C.H.U.D. – A Sewer Creature Classic!

April 23, 2007 at 9:51 pm by  

The city of New York is experiencing a rash of disappearances. These started within the homeless population, in particular, the homeless that dwell in the underground network of tunnels, subway lines and sewers that lie beneath the city. This is noticed by ex-con and soup kitchen worker, A.J. Shepherd (Daniel Stern), who notices that fewer and fewer of his regulars are coming up for air. A.J. reports this to deaf ears and cannot get anyone to take notice…but hell, these people are ignored when around, forgotten when they are not. But when reports start coming in of people being attacked and dragged into the sewers by monsters, the authorities can no longer ignore the problem.…
