WRITTEN REVIEW: Men, Women & Chainsaws

By FOREST TAYLOR
Why are so many people so attracted to horror films? It's not something that people spend a lot of time thinking about, but it is strange that a sizable number of us seek out images of knife-wielding maniacs chasing terrified women.The popular consensus among the mainstream, both liberal and conservative is that this fascination is rooted entirely in misogyny; that male horror fans are drawn to these movies because secretly we're all Ted Bundy and just want to see women being tortured, brutalized and mutilated. Fortunately with her landmark book Men, Women and Chainsaws, professor Carol J. Clover thinks very differently.

WRITTEN REVIEW: King Cohen: The Wild World of Filmmaker Larry Cohen

By CORY CARR
There is an old bit of advice for anyone who is struggling to be successful doing something they love, whether it be with music, writing, or film making. That advice is simple; “Just do it”. Do what you're passionate about. Do it, and do it again. Do it so much that you get tired of doing it, and then do it some more. This is how you hone your craft. This is how you get that well deserved attention. And this is how you find your voice.

WRITTEN REVIEW: Goddess of Love

By CORY CARR
Bitches be crazy, am I right? Well okay, that isn't a fair question. But in the case of Venus – the Goddess of Love - it's pretty spot on.

Goddess of Love is about a young aspiring dancer, Venus, played by Alexis Kendra (Hatchet 2), who is studying to become a professional ballet dancer while moonlighting as a dancer of the exotic variety to make ends meet.

WRITTEN REVIEW: Yuletide Terror - Christmas Horror on Film & Television

By CORY CARR
If you are a regular listener to the Slaughter Film Podcast, then you should know how much we love talking about holiday related horror films, especially during the Christmas season. They're a fun way to celebrate the holiday and it's traditions while also subverting them. And no matter how good or bad the films are, they prove to reward horror junkies with the curiosity of killer Santas, demonic folklore, deadly creatures injected with holiday magic.
