Foycast XII: Curse of the Skype RecorderI thought it was only the number 13 that was supposed to be cursed. Turns out 12 would be an unlucky number when it comes to the Foycast because this 12th (technically the 13th) episode of my totally senseless podcast was cursed by a Skype recorder.

I did a 107-minute long Foycast with Matt Fini about three weeks ago. That show has since been lost to the ages because the Skype recorder decided for whatever reason to not record the show even though it indicated that recording was on. A damn shame because that show, to be completely honest, was much livelier than this second show I did a week ago with Uncle Creepy.

Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on how you react to the show you’re about to listen to, it also fell victim to the curse of the Skype recorder. The show I did with Uncle Creepy ran nearly 80 minutes, but shortly after the 40-minute mark the recording turned so wonky half the show became unsalvageable. You even hear some of those problems beginning when my voice briefly begins to echo. This forced me to edit the show with a very hard, very abrupt ending that pretty much comes out of nowhere.

Suffice to say that Skype recorder has since been deleted from my computer and replaced with what is hopefully a better version that won’t destroy future Foycasts because heaven forbid the world be denied the Internet’s 227,000th most useless podcast.

So if 40 minutes of Red Dawn remake discussion and the horror that is Vampire Dog is enough to entertain you, you’ll probably enjoy this 12th installment of the Foycast.

I swear the next show will be much better.

    The Hatred Review – A History Lesson Dug Up From The Depths Of Hell

    Published

    on

    Starring Zelda Adams, Lulu Adams, John Law

    Directed by John Law


    I don’t know about the scholastic interests the masses had (or have) that read all of the killer nuggets that get cranked out on this site, but when I was an academic turd, one of my true passions was history, and it was one of the only subjects that managed to hold my interest, and when the opportunity arose to check out John Law’s ultra-nightmarish feature, The Hatred – I was ready to crack the books once again.

    The setting is the Blackfoot Territory in the late 1800s, and the pains of a lengthy conflict have taken their toll on the remaining soldiers as food has become scarce, and the film picks up with soldiers on the march in the brutal cold and snow covered mountainside. In tow is a P.O.W. (Law), and the decision is made by the soldiers to execute him in earnest instead of having to shorten their rations by feeding him, so he is then hung (pretty harshly done), and left to rot as the uniformed men trudge along. A short time later the group encounters a small family on the fringes of the territory, and when the demands for food are rebuked, the slaughter is on and the only survivor is a young girl (Adams) who prays to an oblivious god that she can one day reap the seeds of revenge upon those who’ve murdered her family. We all know that there are usually two sides to any story, and when the good ear isn’t listening, the evil one turns its direction towards those who need it most, and that’s when the Devil obliges.

    The answer to the young girl’s prayers comes in the resurrection of the prisoner that was hung a short time ago, and he has been dubbed “Vengeance” – together their goal will be achieved by harshly dishing out some retribution, and the way it’s presented is drawn-out, almost like you’re strapped into the front-row pew of a hellfire-cathedral and force-fed the sermon of an evil voice from the South side of the tracks. It’s vicious and beautiful all at once, Law’s direction gives this visually-striking presentation all the bells and whistles to please even the harshest of critics (hell, you’re reading the words of one right now). The performances, while a bit stoic in nature, still convey that overall perception of a wrong that demands to be righted, no matter how morally mishandled it might be. Overall, I can absolutely recommend The Hatred for not only those wanting a period-piece with ferocious-artistry, but for others who continue to pray with no response, and are curious to see what the other side can offer.

    Summary

    The Hatred is a visually-appealing look into the eyes of animus, and all of the beauty of returning the harm to those who have awarded it to others.

    Exclusive Clip: Psychotic! A Brooklyn Slasher Film Gets High in the Shower

    Published

    on

    All right, you party hardy folks from Brooklyn… this one should speak volumes to you and your sinful, decadent, and raucous ways! Today we’ve got an exclusive clip from the upcoming psychedelic horror title Psychotic! A Brooklyn Slasher Film, which sees one of the characters getting high in a bathroom and then thinking he’ll pull a prank on his friends. However, it turns out that he’s never seen Psycho because we all know what happens when you’re in the shower and someone mysterious enters the bathroom! You can see the grisly action for yourself below.

    There will be special screenings of Psychotic! at the Nitehawk Theater in Williamsburg on January 25th, Film Noir Cinema in Greenpoint on the 26th, and Videology on the 27th. The film will come to VOD platforms on January 26th.

    Written and directed by Derek Gibbons and Maxwell Frey, Psychotic! A Brooklyn Slasher Film stars Kristen Martin, Clint Keepin, Cirocco Dunlap, Maria Wojciechowski, Dani Grace, Adam Maid, Rafael Cruz, Chris Prine, Aldous Davidson, and Rachel Laforest.

    Synopsis:
    The rent is high, but the body count is higher in Psychotic!, the suspenseful psychedelic slasher that follows a group of hard-partying Brooklyn hipsters as they’re stalked and savagely murdered by a masked maniac known as the Bushwick Party Killer.

    It’s up to struggling artists Tim and Stuart to figure out who keeps killing the life of the party. Blood-soaked mayhem ensues as our heroes barely make the rent on time, search for love (in all the wrong places), and try to salvage their friendship – all while trying to unravel the mystery and stay one step ahead of the next massacre.

    Witness the Evolution of Jason Voorhees in New Animated Video

    Published

    on

    I love Jason Voorhees.

    And what makes Jason my favorite of all horror movie villains is that, unlike Freddy, Michael, and Leatherface, Jason has evolved a f*cking ton over his cinematic lifespan.

    Changing from a bald kid in a lake, to a backwoods butcher with a love for potato sacks, to an unstoppable zombie force, Jason has come a long way, baby. And today’s animated video is all about celebrating Jason’s evolution in a fun, informative way.

    Do you have any “non-horror” friends that are interested in the story of Jason but will never watch the films with you? Then here is the cute widdle video from Tell It Animated just for them. You’ll enjoy it too.

    You can give the fun video a watch below and then let us know what you think!

    Synopsis:

    Jason Voorhees has changed a lot since his first appearance in Friday the 13th. From skinny child to hockey mask slasher to rebuilt space Jason and back again, this video goes through his progression.
