Review: Motel Hell (Blu-ray)

14 hours ago

For any horror fan who has longed to experience Kevin Connor’s darkly comedic tale of Farmer Vincent and his tasty fritters in high definition, adding Scream Factory’s recent Blu-ray release of Motel Hell to your collection is pretty much a no-brainer. And for the uninitiated, you may be surprised by how well this zany backwoods tale of murder and cannibalistic mayhem holds up almost 35 years since the film was first released.

Motel Hell transports us back to a simpler time when roadside motels were commonplace, young girls on vacation could go missing and no one would ever notice. Unsuspecting travelers would come from near and far to get their hands on some of Farmer Vincent’s (Rory Calhoun) delicious meat products, made from his own special (and quite sinister) blend of ingredients that he and his sister Ida (Nancy Parsons) create fresh each and every day for all their loyal customers. »

Watch the Foo Fighters’ Carrie-Inspired Als Ice Bucket Challenge

16 hours ago

Sure, it’s not as messy as pig’s blood, but ice water sends a temperature shock to the system that would still cause Carrie to unleash her telekinetic wrath at prom. Dared by Zac Brown to do the Als Ice Bucket Challenge, Dave Grohl and fellow Foo Fighters bandmates dump the bucket Carrie-style in a video inspired by Brian De Palma’s 1976 film, Carrie, based on the novel by Stephen King.

The video intercuts between reenactment scenes with Dave Grohl playing Carrie and his bandmates filling other key roles and footage of De Palma’s 1976 film. Before donning the prom queen tiara, Dave challenges Jack Black, John Travolta, and the master of macabre himself: Stephen King. For those unaware, Travolta played Chris Hargensen’s bad-to-the-bone boyfriend Billy Nolan in De Palma’s movie.

Book Impressions: Joseph Maddrey’s Beyond Fear & A Strange Idea of Entertainment

19 August 2014 5:21 PM, PDT

I don’t often get time to read a lot of books these days, but I knew that Joseph Maddrey had a couple of genre-related titles coming out and I needed to make the time. A few years ago, Maddrey teamed up with iconic actor Lance Henriksen for the wonderfully engaging Not Bad for a Human, and Maddrey’s latest literary efforts- Beyond Fear and A Strange Idea of Entertainment-are both equally informative and compelling reads for any horror fan.

Beyond Fear: Reflections on Stephen King, Wes Craven and George Romero’s Living Dead focuses on Maddrey’s analysis and reflections on three of our genre’s most influential storytellers and how their visions uniquely shaped the landscape of horror entertainment over the last several decades. Considering we live in a world where we seem to have a documentary about practically every possible subject out there now, there’s actually »
