Show Review: The Original Misfits in NJ

It goes without saying that if it wasn't for the Misfits, plenty of the kick-ass bands we all listen to simply wouldn't exist. The Misfits have left their influence on countless bands and individuals with their unique, whoa-filled brand of horror punk. As a thirteen year old kid rummaging through every record I could get my hands on, everything changed the day I first found a Misfits album (which, admittedly, was Famous Monsters, but which ended up introducing me to the classic Misfits). So you could imagine the absolute honor and pleasure it was this past weekend to be a part of something so fucking incredible, so fucking historical... Soulless Cult was lucky enough to attend the sold-out O

Horror Club: Hatchet II

"Come on, you hatchet faced fuck!" A while back, we took a look at the original Hatchet film featuring Kane Hodder as the beastly Victor Crowley - a badly disfigured madman who would go on to terrorize anybody who dares enter his swamp. Blown away not only by Hodder's performance as a psycho that wasn't Jason Voorhees but by the over-the-top, downright absurd kills from the first film, I knew I needed to see the sequel, Hatchet II, as soon as possible. The film may not have been released until 2010 - four years after the original film - but the sequel picks up right where the original left off. Written and directed by Adam Green, the film follows Marybeth again as she decides she wants to he

Netflix & Kill: Evil Genius

Netflix once again teamed up with the Duplass brothers - who have blown me away time and time again with their productions - to conjure up a four-part crime show entitled "Evil Genius: The True Story of America’s Most Diabolical Bank Heist." The episodes clock in at just under an hour each, and throughout the short series, directors Trey Borzillieri and Barbara Schroeder essentially try to finally bring resolution to the murder-mystery surrounding what has become known as the "Pizza Bomber" incident. Typically, I can sit in front of a television just long enough to get through a full length movie or a few short episodes of a show, and then I want out. But honestly, Evil Genius literally had

Horror Club: Subspecies

Full Moon Studios released a direct-to-video horror movie way back in 1991 that would go on to spawn a franchise of three sequels and even a spin-off film in the seven years that followed; Subspecies was directed by Ted Nicolaou and it follows the lovely story of three college students who travel to Romania (fun fact: the film was actually shot on site in Romania) to conduct a study on both Romanian culture and the superstitions that surround it. The three girls make their way to a castle which is inhabited by a crazed vampire named Radu who looks like a weird cross between Eric Draven from The Crow and the legendary Nosferatu. Radu, who is played by Anders Hove, has been after the Bloodston

Horror Club: Zombie (1979)

Lucio Fulci's 1979 film "Zombie" has become one of the most notorious, must-see movies for fans of horror. The film shocked the world upon its release for the gross and sick nature of its undead walkers, but that didn't stop Zombie from going on to literally rake money in. It is often revered by zombie and horror films as ahead of its time for its gore and special effects, which were impressively realistic compared to other horror films from around the same time. Zombie was originally titled "Zombi 2" since it was considered a sequel to a re-edited Dawn of the Dead release, but the name was later changed to just Zombie after its release. Zombie rightfully earns its spot as one of the best of

Ingested - The Level Above Human

Manchester's slam crew Ingested are back after three years with their brand new beast, "The Level Above Human." Released on Unique Leader Records, the album features ten brand new tracks of pure, savage death metal clocking in at just under 45 minutes. The Level Above Human has been super anticipated by the metal community over the past few years, since the release of The Architect of Extinction. Ingested have proved - once again - that they are one of those few bands who can somehow continue to one-up their previous work and still manage to both maintain the classic Ingested sound but also bring new flavor into the mix. The end result this time around is one gnarly, downright brutal piece o

Horror Club - Creepshow

Horror anthology films have always held a special place in my heart; with the rising popularity of films like fan-favorite Trick 'r Treat, Tales of Halloween, and The ABCs of Death series, these collections of short scary stories are becoming more popular each year. But no anthology film does it better than one of best of the best: 1982's Creepshow, directed by George A. Romero and written by Stephen King. The five short stories held within the confines of Creepshow are some of the spookiest, gnarliest, and downright horrifying tales by two of horror's masters - it's no wonder the original Creepshow is still regarded to this day as one of the finest films in the genre. After young Billy's fa
