I shouldn’t be so afraid
I should factor this into
Bleak and oppressive in a way that only the post-hippy, head-trippy 70s could envision

He flexed his razor-sharp talons
Strength. Focus. Purpose.
Carla Gugino, is the embodiment of bohemian-earth-mother-meets-ethereal-diva
Here, a maiden’s face is held like a pearl, a fire under his furnace
Houses can’t be haunted in a world where there are bills to be paid
A ghost returns
to the garden where
the soil is all mixed up
What immediately stood out was Grenn’s effortless proficiency with rope and knot
How stupid would it be if he ruptured his L4-L5 disc while bending over to pick up his knife?
The Willow-Witch has been tapping on my window for weeks
It is a monster who lives here
in your home and in your heart
In the Rim, shadows would float above them
you crept out of me,
nestled in crimson
where lung met trachea
Sometimes I think about the seven known gates of hell and I wish I could kiss you at every one of them

You think you recognize this deal with the devil, but there’s another element at play
But do not be deceived,
she’s all witch, conjure.
Perhaps Satan is lurking in all those terms and conditions no one ever feels like reading
These movies are unique, horrifying, and dare to scare like so few do
If in your first act someone speaks of the devil, then in the second the devil better rain brimstone down on everyone.
Just wanna be left with my brood
to snuggle and cuddle and chew
The possibilities are endless when all you’ve got is time and an all-you-can-eat buffet called civilization.

The Last Broadcast and The Blair Witch Project stand together as DIY visions of a better way for Americans to make horror films
You probably know a person just like me. You might even be friends with someone like me. The type of friend you don’t remember meeting.
It’s the equivalent of being pushed into the ocean without warning, and you’re forced to decide if you’re sinking or swimming—I swam.
He Has Many Names by Drew Chial is a fresh spin on the Faustian bargain, a deal with the devil story in the age of artistic desperation.
Entropy in Bloom is a brain grenade that will blow your mind into splattered chunks.
Is there a Satanic conspiracy, is it all a desperate author’s insanity, or is it something else entirely?

“…more than any other horror film to come out this year, it had a lot to live up to.”
“So does this film compare to what it seemed to try to be a companion piece to? No, not really. But on that same note, I feel I should also say I don’t feel Cannibal Holocaust is a good film either. It’s shocking and disturbing absolutely, but once you get past that what is there? Not much. But this isn’t a review of Cannibal, it’s a review of The Green Inferno. A film that had good ideas in it, but much like the small Timothy Green, it just couldn’t grow to it’s full potential, and that in my opinion hurts worse than it simply being a bad movie.”
