    Satanic science. Eyeballs are the window to the sooullsucking brainskull snailburger. Dr. Herbert West but actually Peanut Butter Fist. No-Soul Doctor, ain't got NO soul! SOUL TRANSFERENCE. TO EXCHANGE SOULS - with a person from a different country.

    Muffled music, so good, so REAL.


    A handsome abductor, as SUCH. Burlap killer. Bloodface. Blue brushstrokes on an interior plush. Where the body meets the soul. Pass through the corpse. No two souls can occupy the same space simultaneously. A vulgar notion.

    "RE-ANIMATOR but shot on Long Island for the price of a used car." -- Joe Ziemba of Bleeding Skull

    should be in the dictionary under "Trashterpiece". slow, amateurish, peppered with flashes of legitimate artistry, and featuring some incredible gore effects and a killer soundtrack. also, Carl the Flunky is one of the most amusingly hapless henchmen since Torgo. do not miss this.

    aka Carl, The Super-8 Home Movies of Charles Dexter Ward's Wood-Paneled Basement, Carl

    aka The THINGS on the Doorstep

    All the fever dream atmosphere, odd dubbing, and indulgent gore you'd want from Lucio Fulci with a Euro-ish prog-psych synth and fuzz guitar soundtrack to boot (vaguely reminiscent of Chrome ). Ridiculous and inspired.

    officially available in the U.S. on VHS and digital download soon from Bleeding Skull Video

    Couldn't tell you what all is different in Bishow's new director's cut -- it's still oozing with charm (not to mention a whole lot of Karo syrup), only shorn of ~30 minutes of filler. Still more cutaways, inexplicable nightmares, and mouth foley than A Night to Dismember. Always feel kinda uncomfortable seeing movies like this with an audience...

    WOOOO-boy that was fun. This movie is so interesting. The gore and zombie scenes are no joke 5 stars AMAZING (it certainly helped that the gore was designed by Street Trash's gore B-team) and the rest of the movie is well --- 1 and 1/2 star detritus. So that's how you get my 3.5 star rating! I think it also really helped that we got to see director Pat Bishow's director's cut --- basically he cut 30 mins of useless filler. Uh, thanks Pat! It was so cool and special to hear him talk live at this screening. I hope I am a nice, cool old guy when I am his age.
