Exclusive: Wolfmen of Mars’ New Album Drops Today; Give it a Stream and Read This Interview!



Today is a major day for any fan of horror and synthwave. If you’re into the latter genre of music, you’ll undoubtedly have run across Wolfmen of Mars, the Boston trio that combines 70’s and 80’s horror inspiration with some badass grooves. Today sees the release of their new album, Don’t Let It In, and not only do we have the album stream for you to check out, but we also have an interview with Wolfmen of Mars’ Luke, who talks about the band’s inspirations, some horror movies you may have missed, and a few of the most important horror soundtracks.

Check it all out below!

You can get the album via Bandcamp.

Dread Central: You guys seemingly write music nonstop! Where does all this inspiration and creativity come from?
Wolfmen of Mars: I guess it comes from our taste changing in whatever we’re into at the moment and our tastes shift often enough that I think it keeps things flowing. With working on the Boogeyman Pop movie, we got to hone in on multiple aesthetics over a nice stretch of time. The movie gave us so much to work with inspiration wise, because it wasn’t just a horror movie, it delved into a multitude of different genres.

DC: What I adore about your music is that it honors horror in all its forms. You’re not afraid to get cheesy while at the same time creating some really wicked tunes. How do you strike that balance?
WOM: Our last album, Warp Suburbium, was constructed as being more of a fun batch of songs as opposed to our more sinister sounding The Witch, The Goat & The Malevolent Spirit. It’s more or less about changing the tone a bit from album to album.

DC: On top of writing kick-ass music, you also make sure that the artwork for your covers is really exciting and fun. Tell me a bit about the importance you place there.
WOM: I think the artwork helps lay the foundation of how you listen to our albums. The artists that we’ve had have been amazing. The covers that they’ve put together have been like one panel comics that tell enough of a story that you know what you’re getting yourself into. We’ve been incredibly lucky to have worked with so many unique and talented people.

DC: What are some horror movies that have come out this decade that you feel may have slipped under the radar for some people?
WOM: I really loved Coherence and The Invitation. I find myself revisiting those for one reason or another. I didn’t know much about them other than that they came recommended. I think that’s the best way to go into those. They make for a nice double feature too.

DC: What would you say are five of the most important horror soundtracks?
WOM: Oh, man. I feel like they’ve pretty much been set in stone already, but Halloween, The Omen, The Exorcist, Jaws, and Rosemary’s Baby instantly come to mind. As a favorite, Neil Young’s Dead Man score isn’t exactly horror, but I think it’s amazing. As far as important to me personally, the Friday the 13th Part 3 vinyl release from Waxwork Records is on my turntable once a week. It’s such a fun album.

Now this creature feature is getting a collector’s edition blu-ray complete with a brand new cut of the gruesome flick.

MVD Rewind Collection has announced they’re planning a special edition of Ryan Schifrin’s gory Hitchcock-influenced Bigfoot flick Abominable, which cast Matt McCoy as a wheelchair bound man who begins Rear Window-ing a psycho Sasquatch terrorizing his hot-blooded cabin neighbors that then turns his big foot towards him.

Horror Retro Caps Boasts Hats Featuring The Lamp, The Video Dead, Rosemary’s Killer and more!



Yesterday I was stumbling around on Instagram and I came across this killer account called @horrorretrocaps. They make horror movie-themed hats and I felt the need to share their work with you guys today.

It’s not so much the hats (which are cool), or the quality of the product (which looks sound as a pound) but it is the obvious love of horror by the guys behind the scenes that gets me all warm and fuzzy.

I mean sure there are products like A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. But they also have hats celebrating such classics as The Outing, The Lamp (hell, yeah!), The Gate, Zombie Lake, and The Video Dead.


On top of that, the product that sealed the deal for me was their Rosemary’s Killer hat. As some of you might know, Rosemary’s Killer is the alternate title of Joseph Zito’s underrated slasher The Prowler. That alone just earned them horror-cred for days.

You can check out some of their choice caps below and then head on over to their account to purchase some product: @horrorretrocaps.

All caps are $15 plus $4 shipping in the U.S., and he also takes requests for $20.

Jurassic Park T-Rex Stomps Through Ready Player One Trailer #3



Is that the f*cking T-Rex!?

It was only earlier this week that we brought you guys the new “pure 80’s nostalgia” poster (to the right) for Steven Spielberg’s new action-adventure film Ready Player One.

And if all the promotional materials we have seen thus far haven’t done anything to raise your interest in the film (including trailers which featured Freddy Krueger, Chucky, Christine, and King Kong) then today’s new might not help matters much.

But all the same today we have a new trailer which features the mighty T-Rex from Spielberg’s own Jurassic Park and a bunch of new character posters for good measure.

I’m just going to come right out and say that as impressed as I am with the trailers for this film, I can’t help but feel someone watched theImaginationland episode of “South Park” and thought, “Mother of God… call Steven Speilberg!”

You can check out the character posters and the new trailer below and then let us know what you think of the film thus far.

Ready Player One is directed by Steven Spielberg from a script by Zak Penn and Ernest Cline, based on the novel by Cline. The film stars Tye Sheridan, Mark Rylance, Olivia Cooke, Simon Pegg, and Ben Mendelsohn.

The film hits theaters March 29, 2018.


When the creator of an MMO called the Oasis dies, he releases a video in which he challenges all Oasis users to find his Easter Egg, which will give the finder his fortune. Wade Watts finds the first clue and starts a race for the Egg.
