Crypt of Curiosities: Towns That Dreaded Sundown

  • DailyDead
In 1946, the sleepy Texas town of Texarkana was rocked by a string of eight violent assaults, five of them resulting in murder. These crimes were later dubbed the Texarkana Moonlight Murders, named after the late-night timing of the attacks, and the unknown perpetrator become known as the “Phantom Killer.” It was truly a horrific crime and it’s no surprise that it’s one that would attract exploitation filmmakers. Filmmakers like Texarkana resident Charles B. Pierce.

Charles B. Pierce was, in every way, a product of gonzo drive-in exploitation. In the early ’70s, he rocked the grindhouse world with The Legend of Boggy Creek (1972), an absurd docudrama about a killer Sasquatch tormenting a sleepy village in Arkansas. It was his first true hit, successful enough to spawn a wave of Sasquatch-ploitation (another topic for another time), and kick-start his career. He’d go on to make a few more films in the years that followed,

Brian T. Jaynes is Sure to Underwhelm in The Underneath September 17th, 2013

This website was created several years ago to promote indie horror titles. But, every so often, a potential, terrible movie will come along; and then, this site acts more as a warning for horror fans. Brian T. Jaynes is probably this critic's least favourite director, in horror (and Larry Fessenden this critic's favourite). Jaynes has continued to create uninspiring and lackluster titles, for several years now. The first film this reviewer saw, by Jaynes, was Boggy Creek (2010). This film was a non-event, with very little happening in the film's eighty-seven minute run time (Boggy Creek Review). This film fan mistakenly believed that Jaynes would improve in his next title, Humans Versus Zombies (2011). Instead, the script for Humans Versus Zombies was very messy and the conclusion was an add-on (Humans Versus Zombies Review). Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me. This film fanatic no longer reviews Jaynes' work,
