Men, murder, and mayhem: the horror flix of Pete Jacelone

If Satan Hates You, doesn’t that mean you’re going to heaven?

I don’t even know how to categorize Satan Hates You. It’s sort of grindhouse, sort of exploitation, sort of campy and funny. It’s kind of gross with horrible situations, but not really horror. It has even been accused of being … Continue reading

When mainstream horror gets you down, a little video nasty can get you back up

If you’re a fan of sick and sexy schlock with a dose of dark humor–and you also love men–then Sculpture will definitely satisfy. It takes me back to the days of direct-to-VHS low-budget horror that was gratuitously gross yet bizarrely … Continue reading
