The Lords of Salem opened this weekend and Cinefastique Online has an exclusive interview with writer/director, and controversial/influential horror icon, Rob Zombie. Rob and Sheri Moon Zombie sit down with CFQ’s Dan Parsons to discuss what it was like working together in this latest film, and their background in the horror genre in general.
Cast your mortal eyes upon this preview of our March issue, which features an illustrated cover by RM Art Director Justin Erickson! Next month’s cover story is a guided tour through the arcane world of Arthur Machen, one of the architects of the genre we love so much. Machen might not be a household name in your neck of the haunted woods, but try telling that (via the spirit medium of your choice) to H.P. Lovecraft, who called Machen a creator of “cosmic fear raised to its most artistic pitch,” or to Stephen King, who thinks Machen’s “The Great God Pan” just might be the greatest English-language horror story ever written…
Here at Rue Morgue, our brains (or at the very least the big slimy one in a glass case that we all collectively share) recently tweaked with delight at the announcement that our friends over at monthly metal manifesto Decibel were dedicating their entire April 2012 issue to zombies, including an especially gristly nugget sure to inspire undead debate: The Top 25 Zombie Metal Songs of All Time…
In a cage match between Hayden Pennettiere and Danielle Harris we know who we’d put our money on. (Really, Harris took on Michael Myers at the age of ten. Pennettiere saves dolphins.) But turns out the modern day scream queen (famously Jamie Lloyd in Halloween 4 & 5 then as Annie Brakett in Rob Zombie’s reboots of the franchise) can also hold her own in the rough and harsh world of convention scheduling. Though her Q&A was at the same time as the Heroes star, Harris’ room was packed with horror fans.
Recently on the Rue Morgue Podcast, Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects was thrown before the mercy of the Horror Court.
Prosecuting the film on behalf of the crown was yours truly. Bravely defending it was Charlie Lawton from the Toronto Underground Cinema.
But it was up to you, the listeners, a.k.a. the judge, jury and executioners to determine its fate, to decide whether or not The Devil’s Rejects is GUILTY or NOT GUILTY of being a load of bloody codswallop!
So listen up. The verdict may take you by surprise!
Welcome to the first installment of The Horror Court.
The film on trial is Rob Zombie’s highly divisive 2005 sophomoric effort The Devil’s Rejects.
I was highly critical of the movie upon its original release and my fondness for it has not grown much in the interim. Valiantly defending the flick is Mr. Charlie Lawton from the Toronto Underground Cinema, one of Toronto’s grooviest repertory cinemas.
So here’s how it works: we were both allowed three clips from the film to present as evidence in support of our respective cases but ultimately, it’s up to YOU the listeners (i.e. the judge, jury and executioners) to decide whether or not Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects is GUILTY or NOT GUILTY of being a load of RUBBISH!
This year’s installment of Worcester, Massachusett’s annual Rock and Shock horror and music convention upped the ante in a big way, all across the board.
How shall we count the ways? Hmm…well, let’s see: how about holding a Rob Zombie and ALICE FUCKING COOPER concert as part of the festivities? Hell to the yeah, folks. Massconcerts held the distinction of not only presenting the area’s premier horror convention, but also kicking out three days of live music next door at the city’s Palladium venue…
Hold onto those eyeballs, the good dudes at Royal Flush Magazine have given Rue Morgue an exclusive sneak peek of their cover for issue 7, hitting stands October 15. Artist Ed Repka provided the deadly illustration of Mr. Rob Zombie, a fitting tribute to classic horror movies. This cover will also be available as a lenticular-hologram, giving it a 3D effect! I’ve been a regular contributor of the mighty Royal Flush for the past few years and have watched the magazine grow from the “little publication that could” into an international sensation. Sounds kind of familiar, don’t it? Josh Bernstein (Head Honcho) and Steve Chanks (Right Hand Man) have returned with another tome of awesomeness and this time I’m not the only mortician from the Morgue who’s contributing!
A new teaser trailer has been released for the feature-length film version of Hobo with a Shotgun, the amazing little Canadian-film-that-could from Nova Scotian writer/director Jason Eisener. The journey began more than three years ago, when a fake trailer for the hypothetical movie was entered into a contest at the annual SXSW (South by Southwest) Film Festival in Austin, Texas and won a spot amongst other fake trailers (such as Rob Zombie’s Werewolf Women of the SS) to screen before Robert Rodriguez’s and Quentin Tarantino’s throwback exploitation double-bill Grindhouse. Rodriguez’s own Machete has also been adapted into a feature and opens today in theatres across North America.
