Queer writer and Midwest bon vivant Aaron Eischeid brought his A game to the holiday episode of Dagger Cast! Promoting A Scry for Help, his demon inspired tale of grief, Eishcheid regaled us with tales of Clive Barker and conjuring….and even answered a few of our goofy questions about Santa tinged slashers!
This episode also marks Dagger Cast’s one year anniversary. It’s been such an amazing pleasure to chat with all of our guests…and to do all those gloriously goofy post show photo shoots! We can’t wait to continue with more sonic (and visual) alternative horror adventures in 2020!
Until the next time, SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
Hold onto yer wigs!!! Dagger Cast has turned into DRAG-GER CAST!!! Our latest episode features Bev Rage (AKA Josh J. Coles) who, along with her amazing band The Drinks, is truly showing the world what it means to be a potent glitter punk waitress! Bev truly brings the sunny mayhem here while also talking, seriously, about how she sees the drag community fitting into the world of horror in light of the country’s current hate filled climate! You can dive into the mascara strewn mosh pit at https://soundcloud.com/daggercast.
We’ve also added an exciting new addition to the show. As there’s nothing I love more than a classic cinema diva in an old school gothic horror piece, producer Jared Olson and co-host Lindsey Charles are allowing me to indulge my devotion to these grand femmes in a new Dagger Cast segment called Dr. Diva! In the first attempt, I get to sing the praises of the glorious writer-director-actress Ida Lupino and her stunning work in 1941’s atmospheric chiller Ladies in Retirement!
Enjoy!!! …and until the next time, SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
It’s the end of Pride Month and you’re probably still go-go-going!
But if you need to catch your breath for a moment, feel free to take a second and listen to the latest episode of Dagger Cast with the amazing Kyra Leigh. Leigh is also always go-go-going as the musical director of Chicago’s production of Head Over Heels, the Go-Go’s musical, and here she talks about that project and her take on horror as a Trans Woman. We discuss Sleepaway Camp, Dressed to Killand how Leigh feels the Trans Community should fit into upcoming genre films. It’s an important and informative talk fueled by her grand heart and infectious spirit.
After a sticky 8 hour shift of serving BBQ to the recently undead, all I wanna do is head home and watch Bitten. Thankfully, the delightful Ichor Sisters are on the always with their fancy feet as the beautiful and adventurous Horror Explorers, checking out all that is macabre and sinisterly delightful in their native Los Angeles.
They are interesting and fun…and, surely, are saving the rest of us a lot of trouble.
I like to think that I have gotten some action in my day –but I have never (in all my trollop strewn wonder) gotten any zombie ass! That is, until now!!!
Recently, I joined several fellow Film Jerks! cohorts (including founder/host Derrick Carey, Mark the Movie Man, Scott Davis and Glenn Buettner) for a lowbrow discussion on 2011 Asian atrocity Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead – and my sleazy balance has finally been restored.
You, too, can head down into the depths at the link, below. (Just a reminder: Pull-ups may be required!)
That mean fifth grade gym teacher…The lady who never tipped you at the IHOP…Their deaths — who cares!!!???!!! The death of the video store? Now that may be a little bittersweet – or not.
Host Derrick Carey (Swamphead, Hole in the Wall) recently invited myself and other (far superior) horror scholars on his podcast Astro Radio Z to discuss the end of the video giants (and not so giants).
