Blood on a Budget gets Ghoulish

on November 19, 2014 | Leave a comment

As winter inevitably approaches and everyone’s seasonal depression sets in, I felt it appropriate to dwell on the more dirty and crude fare of the film world, known as “The Ghoul Movie”. Coined by the Junk Food Dinner podcast, the term “ghoul movie” has a loose definition but normally refers to a film that either deeply disturbs you or is made by someone deeply disturbed. These are sick movies made for sick people, and normally fall in the extreme, underground, and shocksploitation sub-genres. Some classic horror films falling under the “ghoul” umbrella are Last House on the Left, Cannibal Holocaust, Men Behind the Sun, and Faces of Death.

This ghoulish sub-genre is alive and well in the only place it belongs: independent, low-budget horror. Carrying the rotten torch for this entry are They All Must Die! and Homicidal Maniac.

Interview with THE WICCA WOMAN author David Pinner

on November 17, 2014 | Leave a comment

One of the most iconic of British horror films, 1973′s The Wicker Man tells of a police sergeant who travels to a remote community to probe the disappearance of a girl, but finds his investigation hindered by duplicitous locals, who we later discover partake in pagan rites and sacrificial murder.

The film has been highly praised on a number of levels, including its script by noted playwright and screenwriter Anthony Shaffer (Frenzy, Sleuth). But Shaffer also took inspiration from a 1967 novel titled Ritual by a young author named David Pinner, from whom he and star Christopher Lee had purchased the book’s film rights.

Now, nearly 40 years later, Pinner has released a follow up to Ritual, titled The Wicca Woman.
