31 Days of Horror: Halloween Haunt at Kings Dominion

Halloween Haunt at Kings Dominion 2017

I enjoy amusement parks. Being more of a dedicated New Jersey beach comber, however, it is easy for the whole season to slip by without my ever getting around to heading to Great Adventure or the quaint and homey Clementon Park. Except for a short day trip to Point Pleasant, it seemed that missing out on amusement park fun was inevitable again this year. Then I got a very cool invitation. An old friend invited me down to Virginia to join her for a day at Kings Dominion.

Remembering George Romero

ag1

We have lost writer/director/actor/visionary/legend George Romero. He passed away yesterday, peacefully in his sleep, after a brief but aggressive battle with lung cancer. His family was by his side, as he listened to the score to one of his favorite films, The Quiet Man. He even passed away as a class act. He was 77. Meet us after the jump for some of our memories here at Biff Bam Pop! of this amazing man.

Watching the Weird: ‘Wild Zero’

It’s only ten minutes into Wild Zero when it is clear this film is heading for a perfect rating on my chaos meter.

wild-zero-header

Just before the ten-minute mark we’re in the back room of a club witnessing a stand-off between Guitar Wolf (the band, which is made up of men named Guitar Wolf, Bass Wolf and Drum Wolf), a gangster-like talent booker and his henchmen. By this point in the film not much has happened. We’ve met Ace (Masashi Endô), a greaser who loves Guitar Wolf and rock ‘n’ roll in equal measure, and he’s waiting outside the door of this back room to meet his heroes. Just then our dubious talent booker, pointing a gun at the band, says “Rock ‘n’ roll is over, baby” and triggers the beginning of the mania.

31 Days of Horror 2016: Cooties (2014)

rsz_cooties-poster-e1436966618632

Everyone who knows me knows that I live and breathe the shuffling dead. I don’t know why I love zombies so much except that I truly believe this is where all of civilization is heading and, I’m hoping that the honey bees will be the next supreme species to take over the world because we suck at the job. As a zombie connoisseur I’ve seen almost every zombie movie ever made, but I’ve never seen the apocalypse caused by fast food. Did the horror comedy Cooties meet my expectations? Grab a chicken nugget and follow me. Read the rest of this entry

Gilbert’s Review of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

 ppz_lizzie

I am a lover of classical literature, and especially, of the romantic fictions of author Jane Austen. But, as anyone who follows my reviews of “The Walking Dead” are quite aware of, I live and breathe zombies. I recently had the chance to see Pride and Prejudice and Zombies while on vacation with my family. Did the film live up to my expectations? Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry

Less Lee Moore Reviews New Horror Film Jeruzalem

jeruzalem-crowd-shot

Jeruzalem, the first feature from brothers Doran and Yoav Paz, has a tantalizing premise. For one thing, it’s not a found footage movie, at least according to the pair of Israeli filmmakers. They have called Jeruzalem a “POV” film, which is quite accurate and could probably be applied to a few more recent horror films like Open Windows, iLived, and Unfriended. It’s an interesting idea, but does it work? Yes and no, but more on that later.

Marie Gilbert Interviews Zombie Portrait Artist, Rob Sacchetto

I love zombies and because I do, I get to meet a lot of talented people who also share this love for the shuffling dead. I first took notice of Rob Sacchetto on Facebook after coming across a portrait of a female zombie that he posted. She was beautiful in all her rot and decay. Rob not only loves zombies, he is the first artist to offer custom zombie portraits since 2006. What would make a talented illustrator want to draw decaying slimy creatures? Why would person want to be drawn as a zombie? The only way to get to the bottom of this phenomenon was to talk to the artist. Read the rest of this entry
