Beyond Fright Review: THE AFTERMATH


Drugs and alcohol can do a lot to people. I’ve seen first  hand how much destruction that falling into overuse of whatever vices one has can do to a life, and it can get quite ugly. When it comes to the subject of addiction in film though, it’s always a mixed bag, with either actors […]

Review: EVIL BONG 420


Let’s be honest here, you’re not exactly expecting CHINATOWN or CITIZEN KANE when you sit down to watch a film called EVIL BONG 420. Charles Band and his Full Moon Pictures company knows exactly what they want to make and do a hell of a job doing so. I’ve never understood hate towards films like […]

FICTIONAL FRIGHTS: Sean Keller’s “Red Noise”


Sean Keller is a jack of all trades, and if you disagree with that statement, chances are that you don’t know the guy. One helluva singer/songwriter, a screenwriter who has written for horror legends Dario Argento (GIALLO) and John Carpenter (the GREAT L.A. GOTHIC, which sadly fell through), Nicolas Cage (Keller co-wrote one of Cage’s […]

Beyond Fright Review: DOOMSDAYS


Taking its audience by storm and really never losing any momentum, Eddie Mullins’ impressive and anarchistic DOOMSDAYS offers up two (and then later more) of the most directionless and loser-y characters in recent history and does what very few films can pull off with such precision these days: make you fall in love with them. It’s […]

Empire Pictures Classic GHOST TOWN Gets the Scream Factory Bluray Treatment This July!


“The Good, The Bad, The Satanic.” When reading those words at the top of GHOST TOWN‘s VHS box as a kid, that line was all that it took for me to beg my father to let me rent it. Being the upstanding religious person he was, he said yes, and there I went, further down […]



When it comes to post-apocalyptic films, we’ve unfortunately seen most of what the subgenre tends to offer. Dry, desolate nothings, filled with weathered clothes, a thirst for water or blood and a lot of facial hair. Sure, sometimes that’s fine and wonderful (see  or see my fist to your face..not really, but really, see it.), […]
