Curse of the Hag

My buddy Jared insists that witches should be the next big trend in horror films. Now, if he’s talking kick-ass, feminist spellcasters – and I’m sure he is – then he just might be right on track.

For…massively awesome director Carolyn Baker has just unleashed the trailer for her latest Wisconsin based DIY effort Curse of the Hag…and it looks spooky, atmospheric and full of tough, complicated women.

The film, which is currently being submitted for festival circuit, can be followed at

Review: TerrorTales. 2013 (VHS)

Published November 6, 2013 by biggayhorrorfan

Possessed, soul zapping guitar strings…Dog kicking mummies!

Yes, Screaming Like Banshees’ VHS based anthology wonder is delightfully gritty, oft times inventive NO BUDGET Wisconsin terror FUN!!! The mini-mini shorts, here, come off like humorous experiments between friends (Let’s see what this make-up looks like on film! Cool!!) -BUT the Flesh Eating Fog segment is hilariously gory and extremely creative while The Christmas Mummy sequence is plain brilliance with a smart beginning, hysterically nasty middle and a haunting, mist shrouded ending.

Carolyn Baker and crew are doing some truly awesome “Lets Put on a Show” stuff, here, and Mickey ‘n Judy are bloody jealous, yo!!!

Overview: Osh Kosh Horror Film Festival 2012

Published January 5, 2013 by biggayhorrorfan


Big Gay Horror Fan believes some things are worth traveling for. Pepto flavored ice pops, a shop selling the latest slasher flick attire – and, last but not least, the Osh Kosh Horror Film Festival!

The brain child of writer-director John Pata (Dead Weight, Better Off Undead), this yearly Wisconsin highlight most recently took place on October 6th, 2012 and featured such truly ambitious offerings as A Cadaver Christmas, Tony Wash’s A Chance in Hell, the haunting Divination (starring genre legend Lynn Lowry) and the premiere of Cory Udler’s latest counter culture masterpiece, IDS Rising.


Here, Carolyn Baker from Screaming Like Banshees ( discusses her directorial effort The Christmas Mummy with Pata. Like a steam punk comedy mixed with the Universal Horror of old, The Christmas Mummy was a definite festival highlight.


The Slasher Studios crew ( discuss their offerings – noir style Blood Brothers and devoted slasher throwback Teddy.


The joy shouting out from the above photo proves that there is ONLY one place in Osh Kosh to food break during a festival – and that is the awesome Fat Mama’s! Great service, delicious food (try the pulled pork sandwich, dripping with sweet coleslaw) and a fun atmosphere! Check it :


Here, Pata engages in the art of the multi-task as he works the concession counter with the brilliant Ashley Lamers – a woman who always proves that Osh Kosh folks are the bloody coolest!


In the theater with Studio Boo’s always active Chad Hawks and compelling literary chanteuse Christine Fugate!


Celebrities? They got celebrities! IDS Rising‘s Cory Udler ( shows off his collaboration with Ted V. Mikels – Demon Haunt! A perfect way to end a round-up, if there is one!
