MONSTER KID CORNER: DR. SHOCKER’S VAULT OF HORROR

on December 27, 2013 | Leave a comment

RM contributor Paul Counelis checks in with a new edition of Monster Kid Corner.

This time out, I’m going to get right to the point: Pretty much every true Monster Kid will enjoy cracking open a copy of the new Chuck Williams/Dan Roebuck DVD Dr. Shocker’s Vault of Horror.

If you’re from an older generation that grew up with Famous Monsters and the Aurora Models, this disc should get your monster blood pumpin’, for sure. The main feature is a very well made, entertaining 45-minute “shockumentary” called Monstermaniacs that basically covers that unforgettable era in the ’60s and ’70s when monsters reigned supreme in kiddie pop culture.

A Sneak Peek at March’s RM#131!

on February 20, 2013 | 1 Comment

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…

on March 19, 2012 | 3 Comments

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…

Scream Queen Danielle Harris

on August 27, 2011 | 3 Comments

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.

Episode 025: THE VERDICT – THE DEVIL’S REJECTS

on July 8, 2011 | 48 Comments

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!

Episode 022: THE HORROR COURT – THE DEVIL’S REJECTS

on June 16, 2011 | 177 Comments

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!

Metal George Gets Both Rocked And Shocked!

on October 21, 2010 | Leave a comment

And now a field report from Rue Morgue Audio Drome correspondent George Pacheco a.k.a. Metal George, with visual aids courtesy of photographer-at-large Melanie Skypeck:

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…
