THE DEVIL’S CANDY: Ethan Embry Slays In Sean Byrne’s Tasty New Flick!

Metal and horror go together like peanut butter and jelly. As cliché as that sounds, there’s no better way to put it. From graphic album covers to “shock rock” acts such as Alice Cooper or Gwar, rock and roll/metal and horror are like two peas in a pod. There’ve been multiple 80’s horror films that […]

Book Review: David Castello’s “The Diary of an Immortal”

Book Review: David Castello’s “The Diary of an Immortal”

Films are supposed to be fun, entertaining ventures that allow an escape from the day-to-day […]
