HAPPY HALLOWEEN! HEY! WE ARE BACK! Sorry – real life has gotten in the way of fun life, but I do have a mega update for all you indie guys and gals out there. Let’s get right into it, shall we?

Elvira

You know you have made it when you are featured in FANGORIA Magazine. Don Dohler has been featured in it, Kevin Kangas has appeared in it, and now filmmakers Chris LaMartina and Jimmy George have made it to the front cover! Yes, you have to look beyond the awesome T & A of Elvira, but there is a really great article on their movie CALL GIRL OF CTHULHU. I watched this freaking fun movie recently, so be looking for a review of it soon. It was great to see Baltimore legends George Stover and Leanna Chamish get some really juicy roles in this one. Get this issue!

Halloween book

Speaking of filmmaker Kevin Kangas, this prolific independent filmmaker has come out with a fantastic new book on the celebration of the holiday HALLOWEEN. Read this book and you’ll remember why Halloween is the greatest holiday of all! The History! Urban Legends! Vintage Candy and Costume Ads! Rare photos! Size is 8.5″ x 11″, 180 pages, full color. Pick this up HERE!

NOTLDR

The cool people at WILD EYE RELEASING have sent along some really fun movies for us to review here at Smash or Trash, and for October we have three horror related DVDs that we go over. Guest reviewer Hugh Robertson takes us through a unique viewing experience with NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD REANIMATED.

DE DVD cover

Next is a retro grindhouse treat called THE DISCO EXORCIST. A womanizing disco dancer has to take on the devil when a curse befalls a porn star he is in love with. Set in the late 1970s this horror comedy is a lot of fun! Read about it HERE.

PMM

We also get a found footage film in the vein of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT with the Ireland lensed THE PIGMAN MURDERS. Eight people go on a trek across the rough county side only to encounter a sadistic group of killers hell bent on killing them. Not bad at all. You can check out the review HERE.

SPENT

Filmmaker Lisa Mikitarian is producing a film noir dramedy by the name of SPENT. Yours truly is doing the poster for it as well as some opening credit animation. You can find out more about the movie HERE.
