Usually, horror filmmakers end up descending into the work-for-hire world of television direction after their career has waned a bit and the studios are no longer calling. In the case of Adam Green, he began in television, made his segue to the big screen, and used that clout to go back to television for the most popular work of his career.

Nine consecutive weeks on tour with only two days off. For those doing the math, that adds up to sixty-one shows in sixty-three days. That’s the type of grueling tour schedule we’re talking about. It’s nearly unprecedented to put together a calendar like that, because who would believe it could be done? Even the most mundane of desk jobs requires more than two days off in a two-month span.

There’s a lot to be said about a movie that goes down the same path as dozens of other horror films and still manages to keep the viewer entertained. “Creature” happens to be one of those movies. It’s chock full of gore, a ridiculous back story, tons of nudity and Sid Haig. Within the first 10 minutes you’re seeing so many similarities to the “Hatchet” films that you start to get a little dizzy. The film does a good job of keeping you entertained though, seriously there’s a ton of nudity, and really only seems to fault when it tries to differentiate itself from the pack.

I have no idea why anyone would want to visit Russia when their greatest commodity is already dancing at Private Eyes up on 45th and 8th, but the movie "The Darkest Hour" tells the story of a group of travelers stuck in Moscow during an alien invasion. A new poster for the flick has popped up online and it looks like all hell is breaking loose in Mother Russia. I hope this doesn't make people lose their place in line for bread.

Everybody hates clowns. Unless they're slutty clowns on Halloween, most people are on board with that. But an undead clown, that changes everything. The movie is titled "Stitches" and it tells the tale of a clown who returns from the grave to take out his vengeance on a group of teenagers who caused his death some years ago. It's a horror comedy and it's British so that means there's going to be a lot of bad teeth gags and Spam jokes. I assume. Most of what I know about the UK comes from Austin Powers and Monty Python.

"Hatchet" director Adam Green has confirmed "Killer Pizza", a new romp about a teen who takes a summer job at a pizza parlor that turns out to be the front for a monster hunting agency. The good people at MGM will be putting out the film so it might actually have some money behind it. God willing that doesn't mean they'll leave out the Kane Hodder sex scene.

If there's one thing Rob Zombie's witch revenge flick "The Lords Of Salem" has been missing it's sex appeal. Well good news you ornery little skanks, Sid Haig has officially joined the project as one half of a witch hunting duo. Boner time!

This week we review "Hatchet II" director Adam Green's latest, "Frozen", and debate the finer points of Wolf sentience.

In "Frozen", the new film by "Hatchet" director Adam Green, "A typical day on the slopes turns into a chilling nightmare for three snowboarders when they get stranded on the chairlift before their last run."

Maryland based Edgar Allen Poe fans have reason to rejoice as the LA based stage play "Nevermore" starring Jeffery Combs as the man himself is heading to Baltimore on January 23rd and 24th. Here's hoping we get more locations out of this little road trip!

"Hatchet" director Adam Green has a new movie in the works and now .

A few years back Adam Green set the horror hype machine ablaze with his self-proclaimed “old school American horror” film “Hatchet”. The film was breathlessly awaited with many expecting it to herald the second coming of the slasher film, but upon its release audiences were treated to a fairly entertaining but ultimately only middling slasher film remarkable only in that it wasn’t as brain-gougingly terrible as most of its competition.

As part of our on-going bid to simultaneously pimp our Netflix affiliation and help you out with finding horror gems to watch, I'm here with today's streaming horror recommendation, "Hatchet". This underground slasher sensation directed by Adam Green took the internets by storm last year. So here's your chance to check it out in case you missed it, or see it for the first time if you're a slacker.
