Head’s up, Filmmaking Horror Fam: Izzy’s Eerie Indies/Isaiah Swanson is currently hiking across America and, as such, indie horror film screeners sent to my inbox are going to be watched and reviewed by yours truly for the foreseeable future! Starting with today’s film: Dagr (2024). My screener copy of Dagr was graciously sent to me by the film’s director, Matthew Butler-Hart, with a note saying it’s “a dark comedy, found footage, folk horror – not to be taken too seriously!” Between his description, the trailer, and the IMDb plot summary Dagr sounded right up my alley! I was especially intrig ..read more

11 (Literally) Underground Horror Films

This week, I’m writing about underground horror films. And I’m not using “underground” as a term to describe obscure indie horror films — I mean it literally. All of these films focus on horrors in subterranean locations for at least one-third of their runtimes. Let’s dig (heh!) in… The Mole People (1956) First movie I thought of! The Mole People (1956) follows archeologist John Agar (who turns up again later on this list – can you guess which movie?) and his pals as they descend into the unexplored caverns deep within our hollow earth. They end up meeting Sumarian albinos — whose decedents ..read more

The Seduction of Late Night with the Devil

David Dastmalchian is one of us. A for-real horror geek, a scary movie fan, a comic nerd who has penned his own spooky series, Count Crowley, and an actor who has inhabited such memorable roles as Polka-Dot Man in Suicide Squad, Piter de Vries in Dune, Wojcheck in The Last Voyage of Demeter, and Veb in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. He’s unforgettable as those characters, but Late Night With the Devil brings David Dastmalchian where he truly belongs: into the spotlight. He plays late-night television show host Jack Delroy in the 70s-set film, and the vibes are sublime. But I’m getting ahea ..read more

Rock music is a staple for horror movie soundtracks – but what about the rock stars? Over the years, several legendary musicians have stepped into the world of horror cinema as actors, bringing their unique personas and talents to the genre. And, sure, many rockers and their bands have appeared in horror films as themselves — like Radio Werewolf in Mortuary Academy (1988), KISS in KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park (1978), The Offspring in Idle Hands (1999), and Foo Fighters in Studio 666 (2021) — but we’d like to talk about the ones who went FULLY into acting and played characters in the genr ..read more

Izzy’s Eerie Indies #5: Blood Bait (2024)
HorrorFam.com

“If you want to kill a vampire, use a wooden stake. But if you want to catch it, then use a BLOOD BAIT.” So goes the tagline of Blood Bait, a short horror film about vampires, an obsessed man of science, a defrocked priest, and the ghosts of the past that haunt them all! With its story of reason versus faith, director Sam Krass’ film debut leverages low-budget charms to enhance its elements of nostalgia, self-aware humor, and a carefully-crafted gothic style. Blood Bait is the first “first movie” I’ve talked about in the Izzy’s Eerie Indies series, and it pays homage to a much-loved era in hor ..read more

Lisa Frankenstein Reanimates a Timeless Tale

If you grew up in the ‘80s and were even slightly goth, you knew a few things: The Cure helped get you through the most trying times of teenage hell, the best store at the mall was undoubtedly Contempo Casuals (where I purchased the majority of my own clothing), and no amount of heat styling or hairspray was ever too much – more is more, as it were.  Apparently Diablo Cody and I had a similar upbringing, because Lisa Frankenstein made me feel more seen than I have felt in years. From the pitch-perfect 1989 music and clothing to the dreamy romantic longings of being a teenage girl, this fi ..read more

Izzy’s Eerie Indies #4: When the Trash Man Knocks (2023)
HorrorFam.com
by Isaiah Swanson

When the Trash Man Knocks is the kind of title that makes you want to finish the sentence. What happens when the trash man knocks? We know the answer can’t be anything good and, for horror fans, that draws us in like moths to the flame. We want to answer that question. Then, you take a look at the cover art, brilliantly drawn by Marc Schoenbach of Sadist Art Designs, and you see a tall, powerful figure dragging a trash bag, the screaming contents of which signify the Trash Man’s MO: He’s going door-to-door collecting body parts to put the family he murdered back together. Literally. Become a P ..read more
