Witch is the Heaviest of Them All? (Top 10 Witch Metal Bands)

Francisco Goya painted the best metal album covers of the 1700s

In keeping with the spirit of the brilliant folk-horror film The VVitch (now playing in theaters), I decided to dig into some of my favorite occult metal bands. Most of these hard rocking vagabonds are doom metallers; some are brutal purveyors of thrash; all incorporate "witch" in their name somehow. More importantly, they blend dark themes of witchcraft, alchemy and the occult perfectly into their music.

The Japanese Movie Programs for Creepshow 1 & 2!


Welcome to the first post of the new year here at ShitMovieFest.com, I been taking these last few days getting my collection in some kind of order a thought that these two "Creepshow" Japanese Movie Programs I picked up at Chiller last fall were interesting enough to share here tonight!


The odd thing about this program for Creepshow" is that it shares half it's pages with Sam Raimi's "Crimewave" (known as XYZ Murders) in Japan!

Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas (A 25 Days of Shitmas Post) by Thomas Coombs Jr.


Hey everybody, it's that time of year again, and today I'll be giving you my contribution to 25 days of Shitmas with a movie starring everybody's favorite 80's teen star Kirk Cameron! Before we get started this is a Christian movie and I am a Christian. Sometimes I am ashamed, I'm not ashamed to be a Christian, I am ashamed of other Christians. Whether if be through bigotry, hypocrisy, citing Bible verses to provide reason for hatred or making shitty, shitty movies. Guess which category this falls into.

So, sit back and relax and enjoy my play-by-play of Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas. (FYI: there's an African American in this movie who's job I'm pretty sure is to just be the "Black Guy", so, I'll be referring to him as such) Also, be warned, this movie was very boring and uneventful, so, this live reading may be pretty boring.

Great.

Invasion U.S.A. (A 25 Days of Shitmas Post) from Icon vs. Icon's Steve Johnson!

After taking a year off from Shitmas, mostly due to devastating stomach viruses, I am back to continue giving you guys what you want. I mean it wouldn’t be Christmas without an epic running commentary involving a massive body count and epic one liners. Having finished with the Christmas adventures of John McClane, Martin Riggs, and Roger Murtaugh, I figured I’d delve a little into the world of Chuck Norris and uzis. Without further ado I present, Invasion U.S.A. It’s time…

IN DEFENSE OF "I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS" - A HORRIFIC ROAD TRIP via Tommy's House Of Horrors

IN DEFENSE OF "I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS"
 - A HORRIFIC ROAD TRIP

"Neither parent nor child will find merriment in this mess." "Anti-matter" "Empty cheerful sanitized gimmicks" - These are just a few of the many things said about this 1998 Christmas comedy starring the charismatic Jonathan Taylor Thomas. I must admit going into my first viewing about 15 years ago, I was already a bit of a fan of the young actor, not so much of his television stuff but his performance in Wild America, another great family fun movie. Nothing new under the sun here as far as plot and the movie makes clear from the start this is about college kids doing college things. The fact that it turns into this sort of groovy road trip for most of it's running time is very appealing and I can't see road trip movie fans not liking this one, especially with the vast array of characters our protagonist encounters along the way.
