Leatherface Bill Johnson and Nurse Hatchet Collaborate on Faust Haiku Part 3



Bill Johnson, who gained genre fame by playing Leatherface in Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Part 2, and his musical partner, Nurse Hatchet, are proud to announce the release of their latest collaboration, Faust Haiku, Part 3. Dig it!

Johnson and Hatchet (sounds like a great name for a bluegrass band!) have long been working together on their Faust Haiku project. Always envisioning it as a three-song compilation, the duo already have the first two segments completed (see videos below) and will be dropping the conclusion on, when else, Halloween.

So if the Halloween holiday season wasn’t awesome enough, now you can add this to your list of things to see and do. Nurse Hatchet (a.k.a. Mixtress Demonatrix) and Wild Bill Johnson describe the music style as Electro Erotic Industrial Horror Punk Fetish Metal, and as you’ll see by the videos below, they live up to it.

The original segment of Faust Haiku was number one on the industrial metal music charts for over nine months, and each time Johnson and Hatchet have collaborated, their song has hit number one on the industrial and industrial metal charts. Their influences include Slayer, Mr. Bungle, Fantomas, Ministry, Revolting Cocks, My Life with The Thrill Kill Kult, Rob Zombie, Nine Inch Nails, Gary Numan, David Lynch, Wendy O. Williams, John Carpenter soundtracks, and Danny Elfman.

Both of the original Faust Haiku parts are below in their entirety. They were created by Wild Bill Leatherface Johnson and Nurse Hatchet with Johnson writing and performing the lyrics/vocals and Hatchet providing additional vocals and composing the music with Patrick D-Day Madcox. Hatchet also directs the videos, which feature F/X by Demonatrix Trax & FX and comic/video visual artwork by Lyndal KONG Ferguson, the official Mixtress Demonatrix comic artist, and featuring additional artwork by Ju Gomez and Fernando Ignatuis Martin.

Faust Haiku, Part 3 will be released on Halloween, and the video can be seen on the Mixtress Demonatrix YouTube Channel. You can also purchase CDs of the entire Faust Haiku compilation at the Mixtress Demonatrix SoundClick page. Be the first on your block to own this insanely original piece of music. You won’t be disappointed.

We spoke with Nurse Hatchet herself, and she was more than happy to share a nightmare or two. “For fans looking for more psychodelik creative collaborations from Bill Johnson and me, we are gearing up to release our next project very soon,” Hatchet said. “Still top secret and in the works right now, but there is already more from our collaborative efforts to check out right now with our recent release of the P.I.L. cover mixes of Death Disco Demonatrix & the Nurse’s Orders of Death (tribute). Lick the kink and enjoy thoroughly.”

The Duffer Brothers Have Begun Working on Stranger Things 3



I wasn’t the world’s biggest fan of the first season of Netflix and The Duffer Brothers’ “Stranger Things” to tell you the truth. That said, I absolutely loved the second season (read our reviews HERE).

It is with this in mind that we are all looking forward to “Stranger Things 3”.

Recently Deadline reported that at Vulture Festival LA the Duffer Brothers, producer Shawn Levy, Finn Wolfhard, Paul Reiser, and Linnea Berthelsen talked about season two and teased season three.

“We are [in] very early days on season three, and we’re still figuring it out,” Ross Duffer said, before taking a beat, then adding: “I probably wasn’t supposed to say that. That’s not official; that wasn’t an official announcement — we’re just working on it, just for our own amusement… for fun!”


We all know at this point that there is going to be a “Stranger Things 3” and that The Duffer Brothers will one day begin working on it. Don’t worry so much, Ross Duffer.

After all, your brother already let us know that season three will begin after a time jump:

“Even if we wanted to hop into the action faster, we couldn’t,” says Matt Duffer. “Our kids are aging. We can only write and produce the show so fast. They’re going to be almost a year older by the time we start shooting season three. It provides certain challenges. You can’t start right after season two ended. It forces you to do a time jump. It’s a long way of saying that yeah, we’re going to do a time jump.”

What did you think of “Stranger Things 2”? Did you dig it more (or less) than season one? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on social media!

“Stranger Things 2” is currently streaming on Netflix.

It’s 1984, and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana, are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down, but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.

James Cameron’s Terminator Reboot/Sequel Hires Screenwriter



The last word we brought you guys on producer James Cameron and Deadpool-director Tim Miller’s new Terminator film was when we let you know that Paramount had set the film’s release date for July 26, 2019.

Today we have news via The Wrap that the studio is bringing in screenwriter Billy Ray (Captain Phillips) to pen the movie’s script based on a story crafted by Cameron.

You may remember that Cameron and Miller created a writers room a while back to plan out an all-new trilogy of films, but while that writer’s room included David Goyer, Charles Eglee, and Josh Friedman, it seems like Ray will be the first film’s sole writer. For now.

Story details are, of course, being kept under wraps, but Cameron and Miller are treating the new movie as a direct sequel to Cameron’s T2: Judgment Day.

“This is a continuation of the story from ‘Terminator 1’ and ‘Terminator 2.’ And we’re pretending the other films were a bad dream,” Cameron told THR. “Or an alternate timeline, which is permissible in our multi-verse.”

We also know that Cameron plans to center the new film/trilogy around a new group of younger characters, who will eventually carry on the baton as it were.

“A lot of this is handing off the baton to a new generation of characters,” Cameron said. “We’re starting a search for an 18-something young woman to essentially be the new centerpiece of these stories. And then a number of other characters around her and characters from the future. We still fold time in the story in intriguing ways. But we have Arnold’s character and Linda’s character to anchor it.”

How excited are you for James Cameron’s new Terminator flick? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on social mdeia!

The new Terminator film is produced by James Cameron and will be directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool). The film stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton.

Terminator 2.5 is expected to hit July 26, 2019.
