Film Maudit 2.0: Holy Mother (2022)
Morbidly Beautiful | Your Home for Horror
by Karen Calvey
9h ago
“Holy Mother” is an empowering, stylish, subversive, and hilarious outing from legendary Japanese filmmaker Yoshihiro Nishimura. Holy Mother is the upcoming Horror/ Fantasy/ Action movie from Yoshihiro Nishimura (Tokyo Gore Police, Helldriver, Meatball Machine) and stars trans actor Anna Nagasaki (Super Apartment Wife) in the titular role.  Holy Mother premiered at Brazil’s Fantaspoa Film Festival in 2022, with Nishimura himself in attendance.  It would be unfair to compare Holy Mother to Nishimura’s other works, as this movie is a whole new beast entirely.  While it still feat ..read more

Tubi Tuesday: Skeleton of Mrs. Morales (1960)
Morbidly Beautiful | Your Home for Horror
by Bud Fugate
1d ago
One of the finest Mexican horror films ever, “Skeleton of Mrs. Morales” is the very definition of an oldie but a goodie; essential viewing. Nosy neighbors. Gas Lighting. Taxidermy. Mean Wives. Revenging Husbands. Tainted alcohol. A pretty arrogant murder plot that would certainly constitute the perfect crime. And the whole thing is in black and white and in Spanish. Trust me, it’s even better than it sounds. This week’s Tubi Tuesday is 1960’s The Skeleton of Mrs. Morales. Also known as El Esqueleto de la señora Morales, it is an absolutely beautiful and complex horror film by director Rogelio ..read more

Horror History: May (2003)
Morbidly Beautiful | Your Home for Horror
by MD Bastek
1d ago
Thought-provoking and unsettling, the underrated “May” uses classic horror themes to show an alienated woman losing touch with reality. Written and directed by Lucky McKee, the psychological horror film May explores social isolation and societal expectations through the eyes of the titular character. The film presents a slasher-type situation with a twist on Mary Shelley’s classic horror tale, Frankenstein. The story centers around a socially isolated young woman (Angela Bettis) who is drawn to one part of each person she’s attracted to. She kills those who reject her and harvests her fa ..read more

The surprisingly chilling Tribeca award-winning feature “Huesera: The Bone Woman” is a smart, female-driven exploration of maternal fears. Huesera: The Bone Woman deals with the horrors of motherhood in unexpected ways. Valeria (Natalia Solián) and her husband Raul (Alfonso Dosal, Narcos: Mexico) are about to welcome their first child to the world. While dealing with her new pregnant life, Val finds herself cursed by a sinister entity, and the only way out is to enter a world of dark magic. Pregnancy and horror have a long and storied history together. These films tend to trade in paranoia an ..read more

We’re back with another season of Cheer and Loathing, kicking things off with a look at AI gone wrong featuring “M3GAN” and “The Alpha Test”. THIS EPISODE: “M3GAN” (2023) AND “The Alpha Test” (2020) There’s nothing artificial or intelligent about this episode!  After a long delay, we’re finally back in the saddle. And we’re kicking off 2023 and Season 4 of Cheer and Loathing by talking about evil AI. Of course, we’ll be talking about the campy horror hit that will hopefully herald in a killer year of horror, M3GAN.

by MD Bastek
3d ago
The 40-year-old “Videodrome” is an enduring classic that explores the debate about whether violence in the media causes violence in society. David Cronenberg’s 1983 body horror cult classic, Videodrome, is a thought-provoking film that explores the timeless debate about violence in the media and its effects on society. James Woods plays Max Renn, president of a Canadian cable access TV station specializing in controversial programs. He stumbles across Videodrome, a mysterious TV station that offers the extreme violence and sex that Renn is looking for – Videodrome programs look like snuff fil ..read more

Trailer Park: The Welder (2023)

Coming this February 2023, the chilling and socially relevant horror film “The Welder” isn’t afraid to cut deep and deliver intense terror. While I know not everyone is a fan of overt social horror, the genre’s ability to address timely — and timeless — social issues and real-world horrors is one of the reasons I am such an avid horror fan and truly believe these types of films deserve far more love and respect. Thus, I’m pretty excited about an upcoming horror film from rising distributor Terror Films (who are quickly making a name for themselves in the industry), THE WELDER. Per the film’s ..read more

If You Like “The Menu”, Try “Cooties” (2014)
Morbidly Beautiful | Your Home for Horror
by Seth Stoger
4d ago
If you liked 2022’s brilliant culinary classism takedown “The Menu”, try another deliciously devious satire from 2014, “Cooties”. One only had to see director Mark Mylod’s The Menu (currently streaming on HBO Max) to remember that it’s a delicious time to enjoy horror (or horror-adjacent, if you insist) movies. The Menu is a darkly comic, class-conscious celebration of the world’s industry workers and the labor that brings meticulously-prepared food too often underappreciated to the entitled public that consumes it. Over the course of the film, one never truly understands what might appear ne ..read more

The acclaimed film and tv festival SXSW prepares to take Austin, TX, by storm once again with a lineup that will make you swoon. You may have seen my hometown of Austin, Texas, in the news recently, as we’ve been battling a rare ice storm that crippled this typically extremely warm-blooded city. I’ve been without power for a few days, so I’m tardy bringing you some thrilling news. However, with the freak cold snap behind us, it’s time to focus on much better things — like the HOTTEST ticket in town: the prestigious SXSW Film and TV Festival.
