"The Houses October Built" Is For Those Of Us Who Like Haunted Houses But Hate People

Halloween time is rappidly approaching my friends and you know what that means. That's right... Art school drop outs working at your local hounted house attraction. I used to go to a real gem in Upstate NY that would actually give you a golf cart to ride around on the side of a moutain while people ran out of the woods screaming at you. No joke the guy who put us in the cart actually said, "Don't turn left because you'll fall off the side".

"All Cheerleaders Must Die" is an odd film, made even more odd when you consider it came from Lucky Mckee, the same guy whose twisted mind created the cult classic "May" almost a decade ago.  Where the latter was a dark, sensitive, emotional look at a loner trying to survive without anyone to love her, "Cheerleaders" is a slick, vapid, sexed up slasher/monster movie seemingly straight out of the 80's.  Having not checked in on Mckee's career much over the last few years, I'm honestly not quite sure what to make of this sudden turn of events

Album Review: Red Eleven - "Round 2"

It seems appropriate to be discussing Red Eleven in the aftermath of Gene Simmons declaring rock ‘dead,’ or whatever asinine, old-man thing it was that he said.  It wasn’t so long ago that Dave Wyndorf of Monster Magnet spoke on these very pages about how rock certainly needed to be brought back to the fore, but that there were musicians out there who believed in real rock music, that the genre may mutate and adapt, but would ultimately survive.  It is in light of Wyndorf’s optimistic viewpoint that Red Eleven’s simply entitled “Round II” hits the airwaves.
