Suspiria, (and of course I am referring to Argento’s 1977 cinematic feast for the eyes) is something near and dear to my blackened yet sentimental heart. I’ve watched it many times.. but never… with the score… performed… fuckin’ LIVE. Continue reading Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin Performs Suspiria LIVE @ Catch One Los Angeles

I know Stranger Things is the big headliner this year, but IMHO… Trick R Treat was the real darling of the whole damn thing this time around! For fans of Michael Dougherty’s 2007 epic anthology, the treats start not long after entering the park. A special scare zone and some really great decor await you upon arrival. If you’re a Trick R Treat fan, chances are you’ll lose your shit about T-minus two minutes into your night. Not a bad start.

You scream, I scream, we all scream for Halloween mid-summer. Midsummer Scream‘s second annual convention was a massive success. If you slept on it this year, DO NOT MISS OUT NEXT YEAR. I personally vastly underestimated this con and went for Sunday only. Could have easily spent a full day walking the mazes and attending panels, and another full day attending panels and walking the show floor. The Gold Bat pass would be worth it for the mazes alone, if you’re into that. Which… if you’re attending a Halloween con… I assume you are!

At first glance, It Stains the Sands Red plays like a fun, silly, admirably low budget zombie flick. Fans of independent film will no doubt appreciate the innovative primary setup – one girl, one zombie, one desert. Two actors and an endless location with nobody to bother you about permits and paperwork. Genius way to utilize what you’ve got rather than emphasizing what you don’t. The sort of thing born out of treating certain limitations as a challenge to work within creative constraints.
