All Cheerleaders Die! (REVIEW)

Lucky McKee has long established himself as one of the stalwarts of subversive, indie horror with cult hits like May and The Woman. His films have been feminist examinations of the damaged human psyche, and he's never been afraid to travel down some dark paths in order to tell his stories. What I never would have guessed is McKee, along with co-writer and director Chris Siverston, had a film as breezy and funny as ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE in him that still manages to be as woman positive and subversive as his earlier works.

Horror Icon Mini-Marathon: WILLIAM MALONE

One of the most common circumstances in the horror industry is for technicians from one aspect of the genre to cross over to the directing chair, bringing their unique expertise and expanding their influence on the final product. Cinematographer Barry Sonnenfeld worked with brilliant filmmakers like The Coen Brothers and Rob Reiner before directing the “Men In Black” and “Addam’s Family” films. Sometimes, skilled technicians are able to turn their previous skills into invaluable services that make their directorial works greater than would be expected from a previously untrained director.

Album Review: Lost Society - "Terror Hungry"

Lost Society is one of those bands who comes along every handful of years and makes you sit up in your chair and say ‘let’s see what happens here.’ The band’s talent and clear understanding of thrash as we know it was so evident on their debut “Fast Loud Death” that they were practically on the verge of being anointed the Next Big Thing. So with mounting anticipation, the world awaits the forthcoming storm of the Finns’ second effort, “Terror Hungry.”

Album Review: Vangough - Between The Madness

The world of progressive metal is pretty insular, so when a band makes a splash, it's hard not to hear about it. Vangough was able to do that with their first two albums, the acclaimed “Manikin Parade” and “Kingdom Of Ruin”, albums I must say I never got around to checking out as fully as I should have. I heard the praise coming from all corners, but for whatever reason, I never managed to hear more than a song or two at a time. Album number three is now upon us, once again attracting a flurry of critical adulation, and this time I'm not going to let the band pass me by again.
