A little while back, I had the distinctive honor of talking to horror film director Nick Millard, the genius behind Criminally Insane, Death Nurse, and dozens of other wonderful films. Mister Millard has been in the biz since the 1960s, starting out making sexploitation films like Uta and Nympho. In 1975 he went into horror […]
There’s kind of a thing with Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. Doesn’t it always seem like when Tim Burton sits down to make a movie, Johnny Depp plays a main character? There was a similar bond between director Nick Millard and Priscilla Alden. In this instance, Priscilla Alden—who opened up Millard’s alteration from softcore porn […]
Also known as Grandmother’s House, for the picky.
Director James Bryan (of Don’t Go in the Woods fame) has brought us a movie that opens with a scene of a topless woman tied to a table, shrieking like an old lady as a shirtless guy whips the table with a stick (missing the actress, of course), while old-timey saloon music plays in the […]
Okay. Back to the beginning.
Black Devil Doll! A movie so fantastic, I had to double-dip! Just kidding! This is Black Devil Doll from Hell on steroids—minus the “from Hell” but nonetheless closer to it. Is Chester Novell Turner turning (sorry) in his grave? We’ll have to look closer to find out.
Stranger things have happened—but that does not stop this from being pure weird! Chester Novell Turner cannot be stopped either. The future was still beckoning him into Tales from the Quadead Zone when he decided to start work on Black Devil Doll from Hell—a bizarrely ordinary story of corruption, death, and puppetry. Wholly fascinating and […]
I’m taking a college course in literary theory right now, and I must confess that it is one of the most fascinating courses I’ve ever experienced. While I can’t say right now if it will dramatically impact my journalism style, but I can say it will probably change the small things about me that define […]
Look, it’s a known fact that we on the Liberal Dead are not afraid of pornography. We did a month on the stuff, for chrissakes, and since then we’ve shown that it doesn’t have to be horror porn—just something of the “weird vibes” sort. I myself dig rareness and beaten-up film prints, so where do […]
A little while back I sounded the Liberal Dead Red Alert when an indie director, Theo Lemasters, fell into dire straits regarding the budget for his film, Demonic Aborted Sewer Fecal Fetuses Revenge. Though we gave it our best, we were unable to reach the quota of Facebook fans necessary to acquire funds to pay […]
There are probably a million quotes about beauty that I would love to scan through. Quips by poets, musicians, scientists, that talk about where true beauty lies and comes from, how beauty is formed, how to judge and appreciate beauty. And not one of them could come close to what I have seen. If I were […]
Wow. 2011 ran up and hit and left a big mark on the face of the world. I’m still stinging a little, but I’m also analyzing the pain. It’s quite bad. It’s sore, it stings, and I think I’m bruised (though it didn’t break the skin). I think about why I have this pain, and […]
I would like to take this time to say; if you like this article, and operate a site yourself, feel free to quip and quote from this all you like. It’s not for our glory; it’s for spreading the word of what’s up. Just credit The Liberal Dead, and maybe shoot me an email at […]
GoddamnitNathanSchiffstopeffingscaringme. There’s nihilism, and there’s nihilism to the point where it’s not safe to be around the nihilist; when the deep black hole at the center of their mind is so possessing that you will be killed and eaten by whatever is trapped down there. There is no coincidence in the fact that nihilism and […]
How does one go about describing a novel such as Hogg? When one has reached the end of sanity, logic, and reason, there is no word left. There’s a muted scream that makes the sympathetic throw up; that makes the neutral sympathetic; and even the devilish squirm. Only the vilest of men live at the […]
Please note: this review is a trifle late, due to a combination of Steam updates and time distortion. It’s been hectic, trying to repair the timestream and update my copy of Stronghold 3 at the same time. Anyway. There is seeing, there is believing, and there is doing. Oftentimes when you just see something, you […]
So, folks…I’ve been pretty lazy in my necessary duties as a staffer at the Liberal Dead. I don’t really pull my weight and even though I’m not doing this for pay or anything like that, I do feel consequences whenever I don’t pitch in. And it’s not because of my editors or anything—no, every single […]
I’m back! And so is Donn Davison. The world is doomed! Or saved; perhaps both. Well, if someone’s gonna do the dooming, it might as well be me, because I feel a certain salvation upon watching the incredible journey that is Blood Beast of Monster Mountain.
Director Charles Cullen gives an intro explaining the film. He looks like Marilyn Manson. There’s lots of distinctively un-Manson music in this film. It’s like a bad joke. Of course, that’s how we roll when we run with Night of the Bums.
When a place like Cinemageddon declares something to be the “World’s Weirdest Western” they have a lot of credit to back them up—and gain even more when their movie is The Rider of the Skulls. An enigmatic western/monster movie, Rider faces rather limp competition for the triple-W title, but then again, one can only dream […]
