The idiom “upset the applecart” means “to disorganize or spoil something, especially an established arrangement or plan” or in laymen’s terms, to fuck up the norm. If you have been a fan of horror or exploitation movies for very long, you know that the genre has a tendency to get a little stale at times. Hell, it’s stale most of the time with filmmakers taking a hot idea and running that shit into the ground. Some people might say that fact is part of the charm of horror movies; the ability to be so incestuous and still be somewhat entertaining. Then you have filmmakers, usually from the indie/underground scene, who come along and upset the applecart. That person right now is Dustin Mills and his uncanny ability to breathe new life into a scene that has become somewhat monotonous. Continue reading

FORBIDDEN FILMS

———————–

A couple of years ago a movie called Found by Scott Shirmer (based on the book by Todd Rigney of the same name) took the horror community by storm. A very true adaptation to the Rigney story, Shirmer created a visually stunning, suspenseful horror movie with some very disturbing and gory scenes surrounding a small boy who just happens to be a horror movie fan himself. A subplot revolves around the boy watching some of those movies and some scenes are shown to the audience. One of those movies is about a necrophiliac, decapitated-head-fucking madman in a skull mask entitled Headless. Found’s DVD release last year contained a 25 minute version of Headless as an extra, so it made sense that it could feasibly be turned into a full-length feature. Continue reading
