In a week full of gruesome national news stories about face-eating madmen in Florida and disemboweling cage fighters in California, a 43-year-old, Hackensack, NJ man proved that people in the Northeast may have gone just as insane as the rest of the country when he allegedly attempted to fend off police officers by throwing bits and pieces of his skin and intestines at them.
According to the Associated Press, Wayne Carter was barricaded inside his home and was threatening to harm himself with a 12-inch knife when police arrived.
Despite the authorities efforts to talk him down, Carter reportedly began stabbing himself in the legs, neck, and abdomen and then proceeded to fling pieces of his skin and intestines at the officers.
His attempt to fend off the officers with his bloody projectiles was apparently successful, at least temporarily, because that’s when the … Read More »
An American cage fighter was apprehended after having ripped out his trainers still beating heart from his chest. He says he was convinced that his friend, Taylor Powell, had been possessed by the Devil. He also cut out his tongue and ripped off most of his face. Looks like the crazies have sprung up on the West coast now.
Jarrod Wyatt, 26, was found standing naked over his friend and trainer covered in blood from head to toe. There were body parts thrown around the room with blood spattered all over the walls and to top it off, a lone eyeball in the middle of the room. Justin Davis, another of Wyatt’s buddies, stumbled upon this grisly scene after going to check on him at his apartment in Klamath, California. Wyatt later told police that he had drunk a cup of … Read More »
Sci-fi/horror buffs may have noticed something strangely familiar in the previews of Ridley Scott’s upcoming sci-fi/horror film, Prometheus. While many of Scott’s films share that same dark, misty scenery, the Prometheus previews go a step further, featuring well-known elements from his classic 1979 film, Alien, including large cylinders that looked like the eggs that spawned the infamous “face-hugger” aliens, as well as a large, mysterious alien creature that looked very similar to the alien corpse the crew of the Nostromo found in the original Alien that later became known as the “space jockey.”
Those similarities are no accident. But is Prometheus a tried and true prequel to the Alien movies? Or is it a film that just happens to be set in the same universe with occasional nods to the film series that inspired it?
Originally, it’s been said the film was … Read More »
Attention! There appears to have been reported by Miami police a man biting the face of another on a causeway Saturday afternoon. Sounds to me like a zombie got out of the government lab again and instead of finding himself a tasty deer, he got some poor homeless guy to satisfy his flesh craving.
The act was witnessed by Larry Vega who was out riding his bike and happened to come upon two men fighting. After closer examination, he noticed that one of the men was biting and clawing at the face of the other. Describing what he said was something straight out of a horror movie, he was luckily able to flag down a Miami police officer who assessed the situation.
“Police officer came over, told him several times to get off and a police officer climbed over the divider and … Read More »

“During afternoon tea, there’s a shift in the air, a bone-trembling chill that tells you she’s there. There are those that say the whole town is cursed, but the house on the marsh is by far the worst. What she wants is unknown but she always comes back, the spectre of darkness, the woman in black.”
So goes the haunting rhyme that set up the trailer for the film “The Woman in Black”, a Hammer Studios production. The film takes place in the Victorian era and stars Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter series) as Arthur Kipps, a broken lawyer still trying to recover from the death of his wife who died during childbirth. Arthur is sent to a creepy seaside town known as Eel Marsh where he is assigned to handle the estate of the infamous Eel Marsh … Read More »
So, you thought your primary worry when renting a hotel room was bedbugs, right? Dead Wrong!
Have you ever heard about the vacationing couple who complained about the smell of their Las Vegas hotel room to later discover the body of a murdered girl under their bed? Well, it’s happened, and on more than one occasion.
The first documented incident reportedly happened in 1982 when two car thiefs, Richard Kuklinski and Daniel Deppner, decided to dispose of their third accomplice, Gary Smith, by feeding him a hamburger laced with cyanide. Smith enjoyed his dinner, but death by poisoning took too long in Kuklinki’s eyes, and he eventually strangled Smith. Kuklinski and Deppner then stuffed Smith under the bed of their New Bergen, New Jersey hotel room. Gary Smith’s body was found four days later, on December 27th. During that time frame the … Read More »
Why are people so afraid of zombies and what would happen if there were really a zombie apocalypse? These questions and more are discussed in a 90-minute documentary special titled “Zombies: A Living History” by the A&E Television Networks’ History.com.
Zombies traces the history of zombie-like creatures in folklore, literature and entertainment to as far back as the Epic of Gilgamesh, and explores their relation to other undead creatures from various legends and mythologies, including the Scandinavian “Drauger,” which was said to be a person who comes back from the dead as an unstoppable, savage zombie with a craving for human flesh.
Also covered is the difference between the traditional Haitian zombie, a person whose mind is controlled by voodoo, and the modern, post-apocalyptic zombie, made famous by George Romero’s 1968 film Night of the Living Dead, that is typically created by … Read More »
Ugh, even the title gives me the heebie-jeebies. Also known as “The Licked Hand” or “The Doggy Lick”, this classic creep-out myth has been causing kids and grown adults alike to do the run n’ jump into bed for decades. This tall tale has nestled itself comfortably in popular culture as well, appearing in television shows such as Supernatural and a personal favorite book Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. The minds behind the Urban Legends Trilogy loved it so much that they used it two different ways in the second and third installations. All right! Let’s get to the story already!
A girl is home alone and happens to hear a report on the radio about a serial killer on the loose. Her mind somewhat at ease knowing that her devoted dog would be at her side throughout the … Read More »
So you’ve made your blood! What to do with it aside from splatter it everywhere, right? That’s fun but gets old pretty quick. If you have been diligent and read the previous tutorial (A Brief Education in Make Up Application) you should have a good grasp on the process.
First, we will start with bruises and you will need this stuff:
2 tones of creme foundation
Creme hi-lite (light concealer)
Make up sponges
Large make up brush
Now, if you don’t have a model to torture…um I mean practice on, then find a spot on your own body; make sure it is a place you can easily see. For example, I am using my extremely boney knee because not only have I had numerous bruises there (be nice) but also because I can see the entire area. This is my obnoxiously pointy … Read More »

I was searching for something a little outside the box…
Okay, #1 I have been a fan of zombies for a long time, and I still have a warm (or maybe cold) place my heart for them. But they are getting a little too popular now, and beginning to be too popular to like, if you know what I mean. I’m getting a little bored with them.
So I was trying to find something about zombies…with a twist. And I found it!!
This movie is only for those of you who like lots and lots of comedy in your horror.
Did mention lots?
I must say, this really threw me for a loop, even the Netflix description didn’t prepare me for what the movie was actually about.
Four friends eat some extremely green dairy treats and turn into zombies, but they don’t know it. This is no spoiler, its … Read More »
