Junior Inquisitor

Brother Sebastian is halfway up a mountain in Vermont, hell-bent on interrogating an old woman in a shack, when he gets the order to abandon his quest for personal vengeance. He has to find a missing Inquisitor, or, more likely, his remains. He’s reluctant, to say the least. Not only will he have to stop chasing the best potential lead he’s had in years, this job—his first solo mission—will mean setting foot in the grubby black hole of Providence, Rhode Island. And, somehow, it only gets worse…
If he’d known he would end up ass deep in witches, werewolves, and ogres, and that this mission would jeopardize not only his sanity but also his immortal soul, he never would’ve answered the damn phone.

Take a look at this excerpt:

Revenge was simple. Pure. You had purpose and clarity. Phone calls…they complicated life. Had I known what was going to happen, I’d never have answered the damn thing.

I was driving up a ridge in the Green Mountains of Vermont. Now that the morning mist had finally burned away, the mountains towered over me. Leafy green rose up to meet wispy clouds and an eye-scorching blue sky. The early morning chill was gone, and I’d rolled down the windows. For a moment, just a second, I forgot and got ready to stop and admire the view, maybe take a picture for—

The familiar ache gnawed at my stomach. Sarah. Would I ever get used to not being able to share things with her?

My car chugged up a twisted, poorly-maintained dirt and gravel forestry road the width of a fat donkey. Quickly built back in the 1930s as a make-work program, it had long since been abandoned and mostly led to make-out spots for local teenagers. Still, the twists and turns were no problem for my “undercover” car, a mud-brown Volvo station wagon, fairly ubiquitous in this part of the world. I was headed, mostly in second gear, to an old shack where a crazy woman lived—the end to my current quest.

I’d heard about a particular bit of strangeness going on in the mountains when I was in Burlington. My mission there had turned nasty—two team members were still recovering from burns.

Let the Oddness Begin! "Odd Noggins" Brings the Weird

Director Joe Sherlock's strange sci-fi horror movie ODD NOGGINS is now available as a limited edition unrated director's cut DVD, following a successful world premiere at Portland, Oregon's Clinton Street Theater, famous for having shown Rocky Horror Picture Show weekly since 1978! Since writer/director Sherlock describes his weird flick as "the perfect midnite-movie-style movie" the venue seemed fitting.  

After a strange man in a black suit introduces the movie and warns viewers, "Keep your eyes peeled, or I will have to peel them for you. Hold on to your colon…because here we go," ODD NOGGINS introduces the viewer to a number of housewives who work as bellydancers, clowns for kids parties and gorilla-gram deliverers. Stoic Mr. Birch is conducting unseen experiments, while everyone seems to be watching the same gross horror movie on tv, having nightmares and talking about going to Bob's halloween party. Various story threads come together in slimy and gory ways.

More information can be found at

Sherlock wrote, produced, directed, shot, edited and scored the feature. He is no stranger to splashing the red stuff, having helmed recent bloodbaths DRIFTER and BLOOD CREEK WOODSMAN, and celebrates his 20th year of creating microcinema fare.

Chris McMillan from Shadow Over Portland commented, "I enjoyed it…the Corman reference and Harryhausen moments were nice. And I appreciated the non-linear story." 

Christopher Jayawardena, director of Downcast called it, "another gross-out romp from Joe Sherlock and co., ODD NOGGINS is definitely a goofball blast. Comedic bizarro antics, alien invasion, copious mayonnaise (Corman-brand!), and the best damn collection of bubble baths ever…a blast for those that dig it!"

Odd Noggins stars Dale Wilson (Drifter, Beneath A Dead Moon), Liana Williams (Blood Creek Woodsman), Bryn Kristi (Throng, Drifter, Twisted Fates), Bob Olin (10 Days in a Madhouse, C.O.G., Lake Noir) Gwyn Laree (Deep Dark, Deadly Premonitions, Beneath A Dead Moon) and a bevy of Sherlock's b-movie gang.


Women in Horror: Featuring The Horror Honeys

As you may know, February is "Women in Horror" month. To celebrate, asked women from different professions if they would like to answer some questions about being a "Woman in Horror." This time we have a group of the women who were kind enough to answer our questions, the fantastic Horror Honeys. Lets see what they said about being a “Woman in Horror”…

-When did you first become a horror fan?

Hardcover Honey Jocelyn: Junior high
Horror TV Honey Lisa: I was around 12 when I saw A Nightmare On Elm Street 4 and there was no going back from there.
Supernatural Honey Suzanne: Elementary school. My babysitter introduced me to Stephen King.
Revenge Honey Linnie: When I was little, I would sit outside the door to my grandpa's TV room and secretly watch Stephen King movies along with him. So probably when I was 6 or 7.
Slasher Honey Chassity: Since 10. My uncle snuck me a copy of Scream, and I’ve been hooked ever since.
Head Honey Kat: I was a bit of a creepy kid, at 4 I was determined that I was going to marry Vincent Price.  

-Was there a specific moment when you realized that you wanted to go from being a fan of horror to a woman who contributes to the genre, or did it just kind of happen naturally?

Hardcover Honey Jocelyn: Happened naturally after I hooked up with my original sister in screams, Linnie, and her passion increased mine!  
Horror TV Honey Lisa: Completely happened by accident via a random Twitter interaction.
Supernatural Honey Suzanne: I always wanted to do something in the genre, but writing really happened through my twitter connections.
Revenge Honey Linnie: I'd been writing about darker things since I was in middle school, but I didn't have an outlet for it until I met Jocelyn, and then we eventually both became Horror Honeys! The environment encouraged me to pursue more work in the horror world
Slasher Honey Chassity: Happened naturally. I talk about horror all the time on social media. Then I met Lisa and she’s been hooking me up with amazing horror opportunities ever since.
Head Honey Kat: It kind of just... happened. I never really had a plan to be a horror writer/journalist/author/movie-obsessed weirdo, but itsbeen a wonderful rollercoaster ride.

- What does having a "Women in Horror" month mean to you?

Hardcover Honey Jocelyn: Not sure yet, seems like a fairly new construct?
Supernatural Honey Suzanne: In theory, it’s great, but since women are really making huge headway in horror, it seems a bit… insulting.
Revenge Honey Linnie: I think Hannah Neurotica did a fabulous thing when she spearheaded the movement. But it's up to all of us to make sure people remember we're here all year. Not just in February.
Slasher Honey Chassity: I feel like it’s existence shows good intentions, but draws attention to how unfortunately rare women in horror are.
Head Honey Kat: The goal of WiHM is to eventually cease to exist, and I applaud that wholeheartedly. The struggle that women in horror face to be recognized on the same level as our male counterparts is sometimes a painful one and we put up with a lot of shit. I hope that WiHM will open people’s eyes to the fact that it really shouldn’t be necessary to highlight our gender when it comes to horror, but celebrate the fact that the genre is growing in diverse ways and that we have something valid and unique to contribute.

-Is there a woman in horror who you consider a role model?

Hardcover Honey Jocelyn: Locally I love Jill Sixx(Call Girl) who is doing her own thing big-time!
Horror TV Honey Lisa: Dpyx-I think we will all be hearing a lot from them in the future. Also, more people should know what Stacy Pippa Hammon is doing.
Revenge Honey Linnie: Gale Anne Hurd is a huge role model of mine. She has been the unsung hero behind so many horror and sci-fi films over the years, and rarely gets the credit she deserves. Also, Emilie Autumn because she's pure magic.
Slasher Honey Chassity: For me, this is an impossible choice.

-How do you think the role of women in horror has changed over the years?

Hardcover Honey Jocelyn: I hope less victimhood, more independence (i.e., You’re Next, which I LOVED).
Horror TV Honey Lisa: I don't feel that it has changed very much. I think what has changed is the amount of women who are vocal about being a part of it and that is what will begin to shape things for the better.
Supernatural Honey Suzanne: I think women writers and directors are proving that they can create smart, thought provoking and scary films that don’t have to rely on gore or pointless nudity to draw an audience.
Slasher Honey Chassity: Women are becoming more and more heroic, to me. And by that I mean that they dominate sometimes and even rescue the men. Positive moments for women in horror are less and less accidental and coincidental. Final Girls are more and more proactive. These days, we get strong women who have always been strong, versus seeming to luck into their roles and their strengths because of circumstances.
Head Honey Kat: I think being vocal is a big part of the change. Women make up a HUGE percentage of the horror audience, and we’re not afraid to express ourselves when it comes to what we love and hate about the genre. The best and most organic kind of change comes from within, and bringing a different perspective to the genre is a key element of female voices in the horror arena.

-What do you think the future holds for women in horror?

Hardcover Honey Jocelyn: More women writers and directors, ideally!!!  
Horror TV Honey Lisa: I think that depends entirely on how we choose, as a group, to direct that.
Revenge Honey Linnie: Hopefully, we will get to a point when "women in horror" is no longer a distinction that needs to be made. We just are horror.
Slasher Honey Chassity: I think that with more and more women in horror, we’ll see a change. A shift to more unique, defining roles and more creative, never-before-seen ideas for horror films, and moving away from a time when everything is regurgitated.
Head Honey Kat: Horror is a genre that is constantly in flux, and I hope that women can find not just their niche, but a platform to share their unique experience that isn’t pushed aside, dismissed or discounted on the basis of gender. Equality is always the goal, however far away it might be.

Being that this is, please feel free to plug your current/next horror project.

FANGORIA premieres trailer for HELL TOWN

Hell Town, USA—FANGORIA has exclusively unveiled the trailer for HELL TOWN, a new horror soap-opera slasher film co-directed by cult filmmaker Steve Balderson (PEP SQUAD, FIRECRACKER) and Elizabeth Spear.

HELL TOWN follows the melodramatic antics of high school seniors clashing over love, sex, and betrayal.  In the middle of all the one-sided infatuations, backstabbing bitchiness, bottled-up sexuality, sibling rivalry and general small-town angst, there is the “Letter Jacket Killer” who is killing students in a variety of sadistic ways.  As the body count rises and the blood pools closer to home, it becomes clear that one of our main characters is the killer…but who?  Everyone, from the Prom Queen and Shirtless Jock to the Nosey Geek and Super Bitch, are all suspect.

The tale of the Letter Jacket Killer is presented as a slice of soap opera.  Literally.  Balderson and Spear have carved the story as three consecutive mid-season episodes of a fictitious TV serial, including opening and closing credits.

“The inspiration,” Balderson says, “comes from the Netflix model of the world.  It’s so much fun to binge-watch an addictive show—especially serials involving catfights, cliffhangers and murder.”

HELL TOWN begins its film festival run in the spring.

Trailer Thursday... getting you ready for the weekend!

Here are some trailers to get you ready for this weekend’s horror movie release…

The Devil on Wheels

A new documentary about Steven Spielberg's cult film Duel
will celebrate its making and influence 
through the eyes of fans

16th February 2015
London, United Kingdom

A feature-length documentary, THE DEVIL ON WHEELS will celebrate in 2015 the making and the cult surrounding Duel, the first well known film created by Steven Spielberg. A small shot-for-TV film, Duel has astonished many by generating an ongoing cult for more than four decades amongst film fans.

In Duel, a Movie-Of-The-Week shot in 1971, a terrifying truck, whose driver we never see, for no apparent reason chases a lone driver along the desert roads of Southern California. Such was its success that the film was extended and distributed as a film worldwide.

The Power of a Very Small Film

Duel fans from all over the world regularly visit the film locations in the desert next to Los Angeles. They go to see the surviving truck in North Carolina. Film experts discuss its meanings. Would-be filmmakers analyse the way it was made. Steven Spielberg’s first known work has become a top cinematic reference, an iconic piece of filmmaking and its influence is still fresh to this day. Director Alfonso Cuaron revealed he used Duel as a reference when he made “Gravity”.

Why a tiny film, made cheaply and quickly for TV, has generated such a passionate, international and undying cult, is the question the documentary wants to answer. THE DEVIL ON WHEELS will find out what makes Duel so unique, looking deeply into the Duel's phenomenon and in doing so, it will explore the power and fascination that films have on people.

An International Crew

The documentary will be shot in the USA by a team of five international Duel lovers who will travel the country exploring the Duel phenomenon: interviewing the surviving members of the crew, reconstructing the way the movie was made, and meeting other fans and experts to discuss the ongoing appreciation of the film.

The Devil on Wheels Productions will run a crowd funding campaign to allow fans to participate in the making of the documentary. The campaign will be on Kickstarter fromWednesday 4th March and will run for 30 days on an all-or-nothing basis. Duel has not only generated a cult amongst film fans, but amongst truck lovers too, for whom the protagonist Peterbilt 281 has become an icon.

A Crossroads for Duel Fans

The filmmakers have created a website,, which for the first time gathers in one place all Duel related information to be found on the internet. The Facebook page will serve as a meeting point for the fans. An actual gathering with Duel fans is planned in one of the locations during the shooting of the documentary.

Director Enric Folch, a multi-award winning TV director in Spain, returns to documentary making after the excellent international reception of Chining Me, an ironical view on pre-Olympic China. His most successful TV film Tempus Fugit will soon have a theatrical remake through an international coproduction.

The title of the documentary, The Devil on Wheels, is the straight translation of the Spanish title of Duel, and it's been chosen as an homage to the worldwide recognition of the film.

Women in Horror: Featuring Nadine L'Esperance

As you may know, February is "Women in Horror" month. To celebrate, asked women from different professions if they would like to answer some questions about being a "Woman in Horror." One of the women, who were kind enough to answer our questions, was the awesome writer/director Nadine L'Esperance. Lets see what she said about being a “Woman in Horror”…

-When did you first become a horror fan?

I became a horror fan at the age of 7 when my Uncle snuck me into the theatre to see Creepshow. I was shocked that there were such cool movies out there and I was hooked right away.

 -Was there a specific moment when you realized that you wanted to go from being a fan of horror to a woman who contributes to the genre, or did it just kind of happen naturally?

It really happened naturally when I wrote a script for a local zombie movie contest and realized this is what I love doing. Making films from your own ideas and doing it all by yourself is a very invigorating feeling. I'm learning as I go and I know I'm far from knowing it all. I love filmmaking.

-What does having a "Women in Horror" month mean to you?

In a film world dominated by men I see it to be important to realize how many talented women filmmakers there are out there. I think so many people don't realize that women can bring on the gore, guts and blood just as well, sometimes even better than men. So showcasing women who cross boundaries and make some noise should be recognized and open peoples eyes to these awesome ladies who kick ass.

-Is there a woman in horror who you consider a role model?

I am highly inspired by the Soska Twins since they live in my home city. I went to Dead Hooker in A Trunk premiere in Vancouver and the after party. They both are extremely hard working and super friendly. I love them they're great.

-How do you think the role of women in horror has changed over the years?

I think with all the hard work that Founder for Women in Horror Month Hannah Neurotica she has put a huge spotlight and movement onto this subject. So I have noticed a change that these women are getting the attention they deserve.

-What do you think the future holds for women in horror?

Women WILL be the future of horror. Fuck yeah!

-Being that this is, please feel free to plug your current/next horror project.

Today I finished editing the film Granny Fuckers I was working on with Trevor Hagen aka SPUD from the Dayglo Abortions. We concocted this hilarious, gross idea while on BC Ferries on our way from docking to the bus stop.. So literally a 10 minute discussion turned to a hilarious trashy film. While it is a big switch over from my usual Blue Girl Production stuff doing comedy trash was a total blast. As usual I used people I know. Deb Graf, who did the award winning make-up for No Pets Allowed, did the SPFX as well as acted as Granny Fucker #3.Gerrid Jonathon, her partner in crime, played Granny Fucker #2 and helped around on set. He also played the alley victim in No Pets Allowed. Aaron Foster, bassist from Legion of Goons, played Granny Fucker #1. His band is popular in the local punk scene here in Vancouver. I seem to always use musicians for actors..HAHA! And the co-creator of Granny Fuckers SPUD from the Dayglo Abortions, who plays Granny herself!! He's so fucking funny and makes the ugliest Granny ever. These are the stars but I certainly can't forget to credit the awesome Samantha Mack who plays the ditsy news reporter at the end. She's so hilarious and fun! I must say I know the coolest most bad ass talented people. I'm stoked they are in my life. You guys ROCK!! THANK YOU! (from her site)

Thank you for this cool piece. I enjoyed it!!
Remember..Granny Fuckers...Some things can't be unseen...

Nadine L'Esperance runs Blue Girl Productions, a DIY No-budget B-movie horror film company. It currently has 4 short films under this name, Maya's Journal, Madame Soleil's Tea Party and The Unknown Alter Ego and No Pets Allowed. (from her site)

We thank Nadine L'Esperance for taking the time to answer our questions, but more importantly for her contribution to horror!

Six New Horror Films Coming to TheHorrorShow.TV

Horror-themed VOD platform TheHorrorShow.TV has six more movies scheduled for the coming weeks, including the UK premieres of Dark SummerLeprechaun’s Revenge and Bedlam. The scary sextet joins the other 250 films, many of them exclusives, on the UK’s home of horror on demand, which offers pay-as-you-go (stream or download) or Netflix-style monthly subscription, which gives horror fans access to a growing number of the platform’s films for just £2.99 per month.

The Ghastly Love of Johnny X (February TBC) 
A truly mad concoction, blending 1950s juvenile delinquents, sci-fi melodrama, song-and-dance, and a touch of horror, everything in just the right combination to create an engaging big screen spectacle! This curious and curiously entertaining story involves one Jonathan Xavier and his devoted misfit gang who, incidentally, have been exiled to Earth from the far reaches of outer space. Johnny's former girlfriend Bliss has left him and stolen his Resurrection Suit, a cosmic, mind-bending uniform that gives the owner power over others. Along the way, there will be several highly stylized musical numbers, lots of genuinely humorous dialogue, and a wacky plot-twist or two, all beautifully captured on the very last of Kodak's black-and-white Plus-X film stock.

Red Trail 90 (February TBC)
A troubled yet loving family man on a solo adventure deep in the wilderness has a gruesome accident and is the only witness to an unspeakable horror that forces him to fight for his life against a mysterious killer.

Leprechaun’s Revenge (March 9)
Sixty-six years ago the town of Irish Channel in Louisiana was the site of a horrible massacre on St. Patrick’s Day. Some blame a terrible storm that blew through the town, but those that were there don’t speak of the truth. Due to petty superstitions St. Patrick’s Day festivities were banned for the last 66 years, but now the new Mayor wants to tempt fate and celebrate.

Bedlam (March 16)
George is a haunted man. He enters Bedlam Hospital for a guaranteed recovery, but it is a world darker than even his demons could conjure. Once, he fought for sanity, now he fights to survive. Welcome to Bedlam.

Nightmare, aka Dark Circles (March 23)
Alex and Penny are sick of the hectic city life and decide a move out to the country to raise their newborn child. But they don't expect the horrors threatening their relationship and family.

Dark Summer (April 6) 
Summer is a time to relax, unwind, take a vacation, and be free. But 17 year old Daniel Austin gets none of that because his obsessive online stalking of his classmate and crush, Mona Wilson, got him put on house arrest for the whole summer. So, no cell phone, no Internet, no leaving the property, and especially no Mona. Then Daniel’s single mother has to go on a long business trip, and Daniel has the place to himself. Daniel figures out a way to piggyback onto his neighbours wireless signal and, believing he’s surfing off the grid, uses his time to check in on his friends – and Mona. But what Daniel didn’t expect is for Mona to check up on him. And what she does next shakes him to his very core. And then things start to happen. Daniel receives mysterious packages in the mail, hears phantom noises, sees inanimate objects move, and feels a strange presence in the house.
