Dressed to Kill (Criterion Blu-ray)

  The first thing I noticed about Dressed to Kill was the Pino Donaggio score creating beautiful, fantastical home in brain for a less than real image of Angie Dickinson taking a shower in my brain. Donaggio and I go way back. We go back to The Howling. We go back to Tourist Trap. We […]

The Legacy and The Sentinel (Scream Factory Blu-ray) – Occulty Goodness Just in Time for October

  With the recent resurgence of occult and demonic Horror en vogue there are two classic Horror titles being released by Scream Factory that are must watches to get yourself truly immersed in a time honored tradition as popular now as it was in the late 60’s and early 70’s. The Legacy and The Sentinel […]

Hack Issues: Horror Comic Releases For The Week Of 9/30/15

Finally, after some lackluster weeks of releases, we finally have some horror comics to throw some money at. Some good, some meh, but still. This close to our beloved Halloween season, we just need horror comics to read, moreso than any other time of year. Normally, there’s a bit of a boost of new horror […]

Mark of the Devil and Mark of the Devil II (Vinyl OneWayStatic)

  Having recently reviewed the Blu-ray from Arrow Video of Mark of the Devil, I have been keenly focused on the score. It sounds like a classic Italian score; most specifically it sounds like the Cannibal Holocaust Score for Riz Ortolani some seven or eight years later. I assure you that this is a positive […]


parliamo giallo

  LUCIO FULCI. AUTOPSIA DE UN CINEASTA is a book by Javier Pueyo that has just been published. So far it is only Spanish friendly but let’s hope it soon can have a translation as it is an essential work for any Italian cinema lover. This new book is about one of the masters of […]

Review: Famous Monsters Presents: Project Nemesis #1

  If you’ve been keeping up with your Hack Issues, you already know that Famous Monsters has it’s own comic book imprint now, called American Gothic Press. As a fan of both comics and Famous Monsters, I was pretty excited when the news broke. I was even more excited once I got to see the […]

HorrorSexy Podcast: Episode 15 – The Green Inferno

We never thought this day would come, but the HorrorSexy Crew headed out to the theaters to finally take in Eli Roth’s Cannibal Opus, The Green Inferno over the weekend, and that is the entire focus of this show. Did it live up to the hype? Was it a ripoff of Cannibal Holocaust? Did Social […]

Troma’s War (Troma Blu-ray)

  For as much as I’ve enjoyed Troma movies over the year being especially fond of the Nuke ‘Em High series, I have never seen Troma’s War. Sure, I read Lloyd Kaufman’s book Make Your Own Damn Movie, and it had me curious about a picture that didn’t seem to exactly capture the imagination of […]

Turkey Shoot (Severin Blu-ray) – You Have to Be in It To Win It

  I first saw Turkey Shoot a few years back under its alternate title Blood Camp Thatcher based on a fervent and heated employ by my brother in law who was convinced that my love of gore and exploitation cinema would be enhanced greatly by watching it. He gave me a copy and I just […]

Thoughts on Hellions (VOD/Theatrical) – Halloween Movies Start Now

  When it comes to Halloween Horror, that being movies that are centered around the fall with a focus on our beloved Samhain holiday, the bar has been set pretty high. Now I am a forgiving man who will pretty much watch whatever schlock is put in front of me with a Jack O Lantern […]

Homicidal Handymen & Twisted Souls: A Hudson Horror Double Feature at The Alamo

  I love Hudson Horror Show. Truly. Madly. Deeply. I look forward to it twice every year, and it has truly become a family reunion of sorts for myself, and many of the frequent attendees. Chris Alo, and his posse of horror-loving cohorts, have turned this small event into something so popular that tickets sell […]

The Green Inferno (Review) – The Not So Italian Cannibal Movie You Should See

  I have watched all the major Italian Cannibal movies. I state this because as a person who is a fan of that particular genre, I would want someone who has seen a majority of the Italian Cannibal movies to tell me if The Green Inferno is any good. Full disclaimer: I am a fan […]

Thoughts on Cooties (SpectreVision/Lionsgate VOD) – I Got My Shot

  The poster for the movie Cooties has truly caught my imagination since the first time I set eyes on it. I actually will go out of my way not to watch trailers for certain movies, not to read film synopsis’; I don’t want to know anything and go in with a title and maybe […]

Screening Report: Hudson Horror Invades the Alamo III (Alamo Drafthouse, 9/19/15)

  If you did not know, the Hudson Horror Show is a pretty big deal. You go somewhere and mention them, people know what you are talking about, their eyes light up with excitement. There is a growing camaraderie amongst the horror marathon that is amazing. Go to these shows and you instantly become a […]

The Sensually Liberated Female and He and She (Vinegar Syndrome Peekarama DVD)

  Welcome to a non-Tobalina Peekarama. Some of you will be relieved while others will demand orgies and wide shots of San Francisco. Today we discuss two movies created by Matt Climber. While he would become an experienced adult filmmaker, these two features were made relatively early in his career in the late 60’s/early 70’s […]

Lust Inferno and Marathon (Vinegar Syndrome Peekarama)

  It’s Tobalina time again at Vinegar Syndrome with a double feature filled with orgies. These are two of the less ambitious in terms of locations or set up and story. The focus in Lust Inferno and Marathon… lots of sexy. Orgies. Televangelism. Releasing demons. You know… the stuff of wholesome family entertainment. Both movies […]

Movie Review: The Visit (2015)

  The Visit has arrived in theaters and seeks to bring M. Night Shyamalan back to his roots. He is a writer director who began his career with an improves sick string of movies, most notably the Oscar nominated The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable. His career started getting big and, in my opinion, the quality […]

The Editor (Scream Factory Blu-ray) – Get Some Yellow on You.

  Remember when I did the Giallo Challenge a few years back trying to watch all the Giallo movies that existed as per a spreadsheet provided by Brain Bug? It was close to 300 pictures and featured some fairly obscure stuff, all with clever names that evoked clear images of death and a certain strangeness. […]

Terror Sounds: Class of 1983 – The Scares and the Scores

  For those of you who listen to the HorrorSexy podcast or read this site, you know that I’m a bit of a soundtrack junkie. I collect soundtracks whether they are on vinyl, CD, even tape as well as digital files. I even love to create playlists on YouTube and Soundcloud and nothing excites me […]

Thoughts on Scream Queens S1.E1. – Time to Mow the Lawn and Fry the Help

  I’m not partial to most modern network TV Horror. It’s put me in a bit of lurch. Sure I watch The Walking Dead. I watched American Horror Story for a couple of seasons until I just couldn’t do it anymore, and I try to give them all at least a modicum of a shot. […]
