A campy, scary good time. Jeffrey Combs, even after all these years, is still awesome! The effects aren’t all that great, the acting is pretty shaky overall, but the story is interesting and, best of all, it’s got that late 80’s, early 90’s charm. Who says camp is dead?? Hehe :-D A very fun 7.5/10.

This movie is currently streaming on Netflix. Enjoy! :-)

Gods of the Godless: A Discussion on H.P. Lovecraft wth S.T. Joshi

Interview by Henry Akeley


The shadow of Howard Phillips Lovecraft has loomed large over the culture of heavy metal right from the beginning, with Black Sabbath’s “Behind the Wall of Sleep” paying homage to the similarly titled short story, “Beyond the Wall of Sleep”, on the band’s eponymous debut album in 1970. Since then, a plethora of projects from every corner of dark music have drawn inspiration from Lovecraft, ranging from the likes of Metallica and Iron Maiden to obscurities such as Crematory (Swe) and Necrodeath.

Since his passing in 1937, perhaps nobody, at least in the past half-century, has done more to preserve the great American author’s legacy than S.T. Joshi. Having written numerous biographies on Lovecraft (including the two-volume “I Am Providence“, published…

True DetectiveNo spoilers, continue without fear.

I’m sitting here behind my computer, sipping blueberry tea and wondering how the hell did I just watch eight episodes of True Detective back to back and yet, have no idea where to begin the discussion on this HBO’s newest hit series. That’s probably the most excruciating feelings a blogger can experience, that of having so much to say that making sense would probably be a far fetched illusion.

A Treatise on Supernatural Horror in Metal

by Henry Akeley


The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. These facts few psychologists will dispute, and their admitted truth must establish for all time the genuineness and dignity of the weirdly horrible tale as a literary form. Against it are discharged all the shafts of a materialistic sophistication which clings to frequently felt emotions and external events, and of a naïvely insipid idealism which deprecates the æsthetic motive and calls for a didactic literature to “uplift” the reader toward a suitable degree of smirking optimism. But in spite of all this opposition the weird tale has survived, developed, and attained remarkable heights of perfection; founded as it is on a profound and elementary principle whose appeal, if not always…

Movie Review: ‘Only Lover Left Alive’

Originally posted on Funk's House of Geekery:

vampireDirected by: Jim Jarmusch

Starring: Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, and Mia Wasikowska

Plot: Two separated immortal lovers are reunited after many years.


I’m not scared of death. I mean, I’m not scared of being on the other side of the door, but I am scared that walking through that door will be painful. The scariest things of all though, or maybe depressing is the better word, is that after I am cold and buried there will always be more comics, more movies, and more TV shows being made that I will never be able to experience. I know that probably seems selfish and hollow, but for some reason, that thought just makes me instantly sick to my stomach.

That is why I relate so much to Jim Jarmusch’s hipster vampire movie, possibly his most approachable movie I have ever seen. Jarmusch doesn’t treat immortality as a depressing melodramatic life sentence…
