POSTAL- The Rise of conspiracy theories and the Police State Dystopia.

POSTAL- The Rise of conspiracy theories and the Police State Dystopia.

The year is 1997, you think the local air force base has released a chemical on the population of the city you live, driving them mad with bloodlust. Farfetched? Maybe, but just a few months ago the President (Bill Clinton) apologized on national television for the Tuskegee experiment. Just a few years before that the U.S General Accounting Office Report on Project MK Ultra was released. Moreover, Waco was less than five years ago, so it’s like the State isn’t…

He talks with her friend Marcy, who immediately invites him over. We soon learn that she is…

Free Talk Friday – Happy Thanksgiving

Free Talk Friday – Happy Thanksgiving

When was the last time you finished something? A books (or books?) you stopped a few chapters in, a project sitting nearly completed. Hell, a video game? Not something you stopped because you simply did not like it, but maybe something you just stopped for whatever reason (hint: laziness). Get back to ‘er, finish something, I guarantee it will feel good. – Mat Fuck . I had something to so say, but I forgot, so instead… go listen to some…

Poppy is…

Poppy is…

I have no idea how exactly I came across Poppy but I’ve spent every second since then living in a never ending maelstrom of delirium. Absolutely nothing about this music should work. None of it. Concrete opens up sounding like a normal industrial track before the heavy guitars and power metal licks kick in. At 37 seconds it transitions to bubblegum pop before quickly resetting as a doom metal song. IT TRANSITIONS AGAIN AT 1:20 into something resembling the best…

Mr. Marc’s Video Store – Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama

Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens and Michelle Bauer…I think we all know what we are getting into here; a super fucking fun movie. A handful of college students have to pass a test to get into a sorority by stealing a trophy, that turns out be hold a trapped Imp. When the Imp starts giving out wishes, all hell breaks loose.

Brinkworth’s Basement – The Taking of Deborah Logan review

Brinkworth’s Basement – The Taking of Deborah Logan review

The Taking Of Deborah Logan ( 2014 – Shudder US) A ‘Found Footage’ film that feels different. It’s being filmed for a PHD thesis on Alzheimer’s and the effects on the primary caregiver. The subjects are a mother and daughter. First things first, the acting is well above most found footage, with the mother being the standout performer. It starts off just kinda sad, but then shit starts to get EFFED. Some definite freaky shit going on here. Of course…

Monday Mailbag – We’re Back (A Dinosaur Story?)

Monday Mailbag – We’re Back (A Dinosaur Story?)

Numerous greetings and salutations upon you. Welcome to our first Mailbag Monday. Let’s get this rolling shall we? Favourite temperature and cut of steak? Gonna go with the assumption that the temperature refers to the steak and not weather but I’ll answer it both ways. For steak, I love a medium-rare prime rib cut. It’s juicy and with the right sides (mushrooms, a nice red-wine sauce) there is no better bang for your dinner buck. Also, I like those stupid…
