So Skillet is not the sort of Christian rock that you’re likely to hear at your next praise and worship service (well, maybe Awake and Alive, I don’t actually have any idea, being terminally Anglican and having not attended a modern praise and worship service since roughly 1998). But something I think they do better […]

Today we learn that half a set of obstetrical forceps is an ineffective weapon when wielded against a half-troll, half-demon from Lapland. So is this the morgue of the hospital from Dark Floors? Because that would actually make a lot of sense. More than the end of that movie did, anyway. Introduction to the Monster, […]

And our annual pilgrimage to Dallas comes round again. Wow, 10 years, that’s a lot of crap movies (over 130 according to the commemorative programs one of the usual gang of psychopaths very kindly produced for the occasion). I didn’t attend my first T-Fest until 2008, so I missed those first three glorious years, but […]

OK, so the most terrifying monster in this is probably Michael Jackson on the choruses (what, too soon?) but this surreal ode to paranoia (and nepotism, Rockwell was actually Barry Gordy Jr.’s son) has always had a special place in my heart. Introduction to the Monster, Monster series here.

OK, I will admit that these guys are new to me. One of my friends just recently introduced me to Powerwolf and I’m not sure how I’ve missed them for so long. I think they rate their own Nerd Metal Fridays post, what do y’all think? These guys are great excuse to go back to […]

Since this touches on two of my favorite obsessions, travel and Halloween, I thought I’d share here for those who might be interested.

It’s really hard to go wrong with Ozzy’s very first music video where he channels not only The Wolfman, but Doctor Jekyll and Mister Hyde as well. The very 1980s-via-Hammer-Horror Victorian setting is a fun touch too. Introduction to the Monster, Monster series here.
