Adam Bezecny

Adam Mudman Bezecny was born Adamov Patricia Beszenski in Soviet Estonia in 1951. He first stumbled upon his first z-grade horror movie, "I Eat Your Skin", when it toured in Estonian drive-ins after its release in 1964, when he was just thirteen. Since then, he has gone on to descending into the depths of crappy, spooky madness, with such films as "Ogroff", "The Abomination", and "Manos: The Hands of Fate", among thousands of others. Crowned Prince Regent of Weirdos in 1994, he is currently a bachelor living in White Bear Lake, Minnesota.

The Mad Legacy: An Interview with Nick Millard

The Mad Legacy: An Interview with Nick Millard

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 […]

Lady Street Fighter (1985)

Lady Street Fighter (1985)

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 […]

Blaxploitation History Month: Black Devil Doll from Hell (1984)

Blaxploitation History Month: Black Devil Doll from Hell (1984)

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 […]

Things (1989)

Things (1989)

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 […]

Hip Hop Locos (2001)

Hip Hop Locos (2001)

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 […]

Hogg (1969/1973/1995) by Chip Delany

Hogg (1969/1973/1995) by Chip Delany

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 […]

Make-Up Clusterfuck Time!

Make-Up Clusterfuck Time!

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 […]
