Ep. 19: Bidding On Horror


Slam! We are back with a seriously fun episode! We scoured EBay for some horror trash. This is what we found!

It’s Alive does Indiana Jones!

via Ep. 18: Fortune and Gory

We covered Indiana Jones and the horrors within the franchise. This episode was a long time coming. I’d even say it started back in high school for us. At least the original discussion.

Indiana Jones is so full of genre it’s one of those movies and franchises that you can constantly watch over and over again and pick up on a new layers and flavors.

We hope you get offended when you listen to this wonderful episode.

Jurassic World 2 trailer just exploded the internet because Demon Rex!

Stop what your doing. Seriously. You NEED to witness the JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM trailer! 

Jeff Goldblum… Ian Malcolm… Demon Rex.. Chris Pratt…

I have dubbed ther Demon Rex. I will collect all of your toys!

I don’t mean to get sentimental ( yes I do ) but watching this trailer really had me trippin on nostalgia. 

The entire Jurassic franchise has been one that I have followed since I was a kid. From foster home to foster home, a new Jurassic movie seemed to come out. It has always provided me with a safe and secure way to find that little bit of happiness that a kid should have. 

Now I’m an adult and this trailer has awakened excited child inside me. I can’t wait to experience what Fallen Kingdom has to offer. 
If you haven’t, I highly recommended you to follow Jurassic World on all Social Media ventures. Some really sweet treats can be found within!

The Phantom Neighbor: Part 2

My phone continued to ring. My door knob stopped it’s violent jig. The phone was the only sound now. 

Squeezing the knife with my left hand, I quickly reached for my phone and answered it. 


A dull static. 


The voice hit me like a grenade. I was floored. I quickly ran to the door and opened it, breathlessly.

My exwife, dead or alive, can be real bitch… 

The Phantom Neighbor

I am currently the only resident in my 3 unit apartment. For the last two nights someone has been trying to open my apartment door.


I never investigate it. But I know it’s real because as I write this my door knob is slowly shaking. I can hear the groaning of the wooden entry door as if someone is pushing against it.

I’m sitting on my couch. I have a stupid pocket knife from 5 Below in my hand as I watch my door being tried. I’m careful not to make any noise.

The world is a mad, mad place. Some people kill for money or drugs. And some people kill for the hell of it. Whoever was fucking with me obviously fit amongst these types of people. But I sure as hell wasn’t going out without a fight. That is if the the door was breached. It wasn’t. Thank God. All I need to do is keep absolutely silent.

And that’s when my phone started to ring…

HP Lovecraft: Hallowe’en in a Suburb

The steeples are white in the wild moonlight,
And the trees have a silver glare;
Past the chimneys high see the vampires fly,
And the harpies of upper air,
That flutter and laugh and stare.

For the village dead to the moon outspread
Never shone in the sunset’s gleam,
But grew out of the deep that the dead years keep
Where the rivers of madness stream
Down the gulfs to a pit of dream.

A chill wind blows through the rows of sheaves
In the meadows that shimmer pale,
And comes to twine where the headstones shine
And the ghouls of the churchyard wail
For harvests that fly and fail.

Not a breath of the strange grey gods of change
That tore from the past its own
Can quicken this hour, when a spectral power
Spreads sleep o’er the cosmic throne,
And looses the vast unknown.

So here again stretch the vale and plain
That moons long-forgotten saw,
And the dead leap gay in the pallid ray,
Sprung out of the tomb’s black maw
To shake all the world with awe.

And all that the morn shall greet forlorn,
The ugliness and the pest
Of rows where thick rise the stones and brick,
Shall some day be with the rest,
And brood with the shades unblest.

Then wild in the dark let the lemurs bark,
And the leprous spires ascend;
For new and old alike in the fold
Of horror and death are penned,
For the hounds of Time to rend.

Hidden Faces: Rob Zombies Halloween II

So I watched Rob Zombie’s H2 for like the 100th time. My experience with RZ’s H2 is kinda like when I asked for a super soaker hydro cannon but got a water gun super aqua blaster 2000. But after playing around with it I discovered that it’s actually pretty fucking awesome.

Yes. I love Rob Zombie.

With every viewing, I began to see something new. Whether it was the ultra-realistic violence or the top notch acting from Scout Taylor Compton I keep peeling back the delightful layers that the movie holds. This time around I started noticing some familiar faces lurking within the gore-fest of a movie!

Some will be a no-brainer but others will hopefully provide a, “oh yeah!” reaction. I know it did for me when I pulled the credits up on the ol’ internet system.

Let’s roll!

  1. Stretch from Texas Chainsaw Massacre II


Caroline Williams, famous for playing the super sexy and cool as icce, Stretch, from Texas Chainsaw Massacre II also plays Dr. Maple in H2! She can be briefly be seen and heard in the total fucked up hospital slaughter. RZ is a huge fan of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. So seeing Stretch only confirms how awesome he is when it comes to paying homage to the greats!


2. Octavia “Ms. Academy Award” Spencer plays Nurse Daniels!



How freaking awesome is it to see Academy Award winner (and drop dead funny), Octavia Spencer, to make an appearance in the bloodiest Halloween film of all time!? Her death scene, for me, is on my top 5 most intense kills of all time.


3. Richard Riehle from Office Space is BUDDY!


One of my favorite characters from Office Space is Tom Smykowski. Why? Because I literally worked with someone who not only looked like him but acted like him! Always high strung and on the edge = super hilarious in the workspace. Mostly. Anyways, Smykowski plays Buddy, the kind security guard at the hospital that of course gets destroyed by sabertooth aka Michael Myers.

4. Margot “Lois Lane” Kidder was the Haddonfield psychiatrist in H2!

My friend pointed this one out. I couldn’t believe it. I wouldn’t have noticed it! What I do know is that she played Kathy Lutz in the original Amityville Horror film! Glad to see RZ continues to dig deep into the horror classics!


5. Mark Christopher Lawrence was the random cop at the end of H2 but he was also in Terminator 2!

This one is really random. At the end of H2 I saw a face that I thought looked familiar. At first, I thought it was the cop from Die Hard. So I looked him up and behold I found that it was one of the security guards at the psych ward from Terminator 2! He was partners with the mega butthead security guard! Guys, I ain’t playing here. T2 is a fav of mine and this fucker stood out. GOD DAMN IT!

I truly hope you guys give Rob Zombies’s Halloween II. It’s purely a Rob Zombie film. However, it’s one of the most brutally violent with the one of the best character archs in the franchise. Scout’s performance was truly awesome. From Suburban high schooler to a tormented monster, she wins all the prizes.

Here’s some Halloween advice – Watch Halloween II and Trick R’ Treat back to back.


Merry Christmas.
