Holidays are all about great food–everyone knows that. And this Thanksgiving, Ginger Christ, the super sassy and delightfully demented cooking show host, has served up a whopping feast of horror in her Thanksgiving Special! Directed by Alex Napiwocki and costarring a group of hilarious misfits (and a certain critter…), Thanksgiving is transformed into an absolute scream with their Ginger Christ holiday horror series.
I love bizarre horror, and as soon as I watched Ginger Christ’s Halloween and now Thanksgiving Specials, I’m sold. It’s weird, super twisted and will either make you die laughing or turn off the show in disgust! But if you do that, well, then you’re no damn fun. Watch Ginger Christ’s Thanksgiving Special, titled “What’s Eating Critter?” here!
Tasty, am I right? Also be sure to watch her Halloween Special!
Can’t wait Can’t wait what she’s serving up for Christmas…Happy Holidays Horror Lover!

Hey, I’ve been meaning to ask, do you know anyone named Jennifer?
It’s been some time since we’ve had an update, but for great reason, I assure you. I’m excited to announce that LAHorror.com’s first feature film, “2 Jennifer,” has wrapped principle photography and is on slate for completion in August! It’s been a wild ride putting this film together, and fans of murder, violence and horrifying GORE will not be disappointed! “2 Jennifer” is a hard “R” rated sequel to our good friend James Cullen Bressack’s 2013 film, “To Jennifer.” You can read our review of his film here.
“Two filmmakers attempt to make the perfect sequel to “To Jennifer,” however a dark secret threatens the lives of everyone involved. Jennifer, a beautiful actress, now has two options: become the heroine of the film, or face a brutal death.”
“El Gigante” opens with a gorgeous desert vista and a man stumbling through the heat. Through a flashback, we learn that the young Mexican man is named Armando (played by Edwin Perez) and that he tried to strike a deal with a coyote to smuggle his family across the border. They didn’t have enough cash, so Armando had to make the border crossing on his own.
Armando makes it to the border, but is intercepted by a mysterious stranger. Armando passes out. He awakens inside of a room that holds a wrestling arena/altar. He now has a burlap Lucha Libre mask sewn to his face. As a grotesque family of characters watch, he is forced into a death battle with El Gigante, an enormous wrestler.
Visually, this short is a huge treat. It embraces grindhouse style entertainment without veiling it in a fake 1970s aesthetic. The production design and costuming are top notch: this movie pays close attention to textures and character and set design in a way that most short films do not. The makeup and gore effects are incredibly effective. This movie looks and feels filthy.
Guerrero is the colorist for the film as well, and chooses vivid lurid red accents to the sickly greens, yellows, and greys of the wrestling arena. She has a great eye for action and how it can be used to reveal character.
“El Gigante” is currently on the festival circuit, and will hopefully be seen by people who see the feature potential in it. The short is adapted by Shane McKenzie from the first chapter of his book “Muerte con Carne,” and it’s an amazing contribution to “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” style cannibal family genre. Each family member has a distinct look and role to play in the slaughter. If the rest of the book is as exciting as this first look is, then El Gigante could one day join Jason and Leatherface in the pantheon of masked movie killers.
Horror lovers! I couldn’t be more excited to announce that LAHorror.com is teaming up with Emily Eden Films & visionary Writer/Director Brialynn Massie to Co-Produce / Co-Star in an amazing new Web Series called “The Chronicles of Ruth” (#TCOR)! This is a project that I’m extremely excited about, and if you’re into HORROR, POSSESSION, HELLFIRE & more, then you should be pretty damn excited too!
“How do you save someone from Hell when you can’t even save yourself?”
#TCOR follows “Ruth,” a young teen who struggles with depression, leading her astray into hell, and her journey to escape this darkness to warn her family of the impending apocalypse. It’s one of the most ORIGINAL and EPIC horror scripts I have read in quite some time, Bria Lynn Massie has really created a really special story and assembled a cast that is incredibly talented and diverse, including Chris Kato, Jocelyn Watts, Bobbie Lee, Chris Pardal, and Daniele De Leggia, to name just a few. We need your help getting #TCOR produced!
This is a story that’s extremely accessible to horror fans of all types. What initially attracted me to this project was not only the scope and depth of the characters, but the real nasty horror elements that prevail throughout. Whenever I read a horror script, there’s nothing that I love more than the moments that can make even me cringe, and #TCOR is full of them! This is a seriously ambitious project but I have no doubt that with this cast & creative team the product will be incredible! Here’s a small glimpse into the madness that we’re going to create…
There are a lot of fundraising campaigns out there, and this is one that you should strongly consider backing. We’re a young, hungry and enthusiastic team set out to create an epic horror drama, filled with SCARES and CARNAGE, but also filled with inspiration and heart. We are offering some awesome perks for backers and we’re planning several charitable events to help pay it forward (we’ll keep you posted on the details and how you can help as well)! We cannot do it without you.
We are extremely excited to share “Melody,” LAHorror.com’s first official short film! This one is nasty, everybody, and I hope you like them weird! This slimy little flick stars Beau Smith & Emily Dahm, two incredible actors who totally kill it, and was created by LAHorror.com contributors Hunter Johnson & Megan Perrin. And you’ve got to love the gore created by Ryan Reynolds, am I right?? We hope that this one finds a special spot in your rotten little horror hearts!
Who doesn’t love a good sea monster movie? They take humans out of their element, often have something with wicked sharp teeth and almost guaranteed bikinis galore. And while we’ve recently seen a lot of movies about killer sharks and giant reptilians recently, which is all fine and good, there’s been a key sub-species of the oceanic variety that is being far underrepresented in the horror spectrum nowadays. Mermaids, bro! And in Milan Todorvic’s slick horror flick “Killer Mermaid” (aka “Nymph”), we are shown just how vicious and deadly, these creatures can be!
The story: two beautiful young women go on an exotic Mediterranean vacation and uncover the watery lair of a killer mermaid hidden beneath an abandoned military fortress. What was once a carefree adventure becomes a deadly fight for survival…
Look, I’m not going to pretend to be an expert on Mermaid themed horror movies, but I do say with confidence that “Killer Mermaid” sets the bar pretty damn high for what genre enthusiasts should expect from a movie about a killer fish woman. This film begins as a slash-em up but slowly turns into something much darker, and much more interesting once our heroes come into contact with the Mermaid. This is a villain that I absolutely loved, and by all means don’t let her sexy, angelic voice lure you in or you’ll pay a hefty price. This Mermaid has got some bite.
This movie, much like its cast, is absolutely beautiful. There’s some amazing cinematography that makes the most of its exotic setting, and while it does take a bit of time to get to the real meat of the story, it is an intriguing ride to get there, mostly because this film takes itself so seriously. With a movie about a killer mermaid, it’d be really easy to fall into the campy, over the top attitude that a lot of horror has nowadays, but this film does the opposite. The characters are real and believable, the special effects are well above average and I found myself invested and excited by the time the film was wrapping up. “Killer Mermaid” may not have been the scariest movie I’ve ever seen, but it definitely was a lot of fun. Put your swimsuit on and jump in for this one. Just be wary of any ladies of the sea you might meet on the way…
Brutality. Blood. Babes. Bunnies. No, I’m not talking about Bugs, I’m talking about Bunnyman, THE horror bunny, and he’s back again in the third installment of the cult horror series created by filmmaker Carl Lindbergh.
Raising havoc and murdering many in his demented quest for carnage, this Bunny is no fucking joke, and with the release of “Bunnyman Massacre” (AKA “Bunnyman 2”) on DVD as well as “Bunnyman 3” in post production, fans of killer bunnies and horror are in for a happy, or hoppy, horror show.
The Bunnyman trilogy is bizarre hillbilly horror, the type of movie that will get under your skin and make you feel pretty damn uncomfortable. What this trilogy offers is an intriguing horror villain, the Bunnyman, and his travels through the backwoods slashing anybody that comes in his way. But that being said, he isn’t just another slasher killer in a mask. Bunnyman is human, after all, and his adventures often focus on the demented company he keeps, rather than the victims that fall into his web. Essentially, there is more behind the mask and floppy ears that meets the eye.
The third installment of this franchise looks incredibly promising and shows what indie horror filmmakers can do on an ultra low budget. Lead by the talent of actors Omari Washington, Marshall Hilton and the return of Joshua Lang as Bunnyman, this flick looks like it could be the best of the trilogy, or potentially the next step in a much larger franchise. With some amazing cinematography, a plethora of victims (which may or may not include this very horror blogger), accompanied by the bizarre vision of Lindbergh, I honestly can’t wait to see how this flick turns out. This is going to be one hell of a twisted flick. Don’t believe me? Watch the trailer and you’ll know what I mean.
