8 Killer Horror Themed Metal Bands


Horror films and metal music are like peanut butter and ice cream; two great things that go great together...and should be used to get your dog to lick your balls. Ever since Black Sabbath named themselves after a Mario Bava movie the association between horror and metal has been undeniable. The great death metal bands conjure horror movie gore with their lyrics, and hundreds of underground acts blatantly steal horror poster imagery for their flyers and promotional material.

Below are some lesser known, but FUCKING BRUTAL bands that make horror films their religion. Most are of the extreme variety so sorry...no clean singing allowed. Enjoy.

Welcome back to the SMF ShartOuts, below are some posts and art from around the interwebs that I strongly endorse so please check all the links shared and please feel free to email me at (shitmoviefest@comcast.net) if there's ever something you feel should be featured in a future edition of the ShartOuts!

Last week I joined my good friends Jason Price (IconVsIcon) and Jeremy L. Morrison for what was my podcast debut on their show Acid Pop Cult!  On the show I talk about how "Shit Movie Fest" came to be and also give my Top 3 Pics on what Summer Blockbusters I am most looking forward to in the coming months!
I had a lot of fun shooting the shit with these fellows and hopefully they will have me back on sometime in the future!

Everything Except Shoes! (My Collection of "Freaked" Movie Merchandise)


(Art via Electric Zombie)

I'll never forget how I first discovered the 1993 Cult Classic known as "Freaked"! I was 13, channel surfing for something to cool watch (preferably something that had Boobs in it) and settled on a movie that was already in progress on one of the premium movie channels. I had no clue what the name of the movie I was watching, but soon became in awe of the antics of a crazy Sock Man, two Rastafarian Eyeballs shooting off machine guns, and wondering what heck Mr. T was doing in a Dress! After finding out what the title of this bizarre movie was I made sure to have a blank VHS tape handy for the next airing of "Freaked"! I also soon found out that quite a few of my class mates in Grade School were also fans of this movie and it became something we would talk about frequently in our recess conversations with the likes of WWF, Beavis and Butt-Head, Mortal Kombat, and POGs (oh the 90s!)

It's been over 20 Years since that first viewing, but Freaked still remains one of my favorite B-movies and something that I always try to introduce new fans to! In fact I ended up featuring it a Shit Movie Fest Party a few years back it was happy to see it went over extremely well with the crowd!

Spotlight on Cavity Colors' "The Deadly Desserts" Series!


Aron of Cavity Colors is an artist who's work I can't get enough of! What I enjoy most about Aron's art (and what really makes him stand out imo) is the way he puts interesting spins on Horror Icons! Take for instance his "The Deadly Desserts" art series posted below, I love the playfulness and bright colors he uses to brings these characters to life instead of going the typical dark and brooding route other artists often do!

"Bad Taste"

"C.H.U.D. Cone"

"Freddy 2 Scoops" 

"IScream" 

"Sweet Skeletor"

"The Blob Pie"

"Tasty Thing"

"Consume"

"Cake Pop Sam"


If you liked what you seen in this post be sure to check Cavity Colors out of the following Social Media Haunts to keep up to date with all his new pieces and projects he's working on!

SMF's Weekly ShartOuts (March 8th - March 28th


Banner Art via Jason Price of IconVsIcon & Acid Pop Cult!

Sorry for the lack of ShartOut the last two weeks, didn't get to doing one two weeks ago because I was at Monster Mania and last week the Weather was just too nice not to spend time outside outside and as far away from the laptop! But any way the Sharts are back in full effect this weekend so without  further adieu let's let them out . . .

01:  Tim Capello, who's best know as the (Sexy) Saxophone Guy in "The Lost Boys" has made his much much anticipated debut on the Horror Con Circuit! His first stop was at this weekend's Mad Monster Party and my friend Garrett who's attending the show was nice enough to get an 8x10 signed for me!

A look at my "Brainscan" collection!


1994's "Brainscan" is a movie I've fell in love with from the first time I rented it from my local video store!  Thanks to movie like "T2", "Pet Sematary 2" and his appearance in Aerosmith's "Livin' on the Edge" I already thought it's star Edward Furlong was just about the coolest mofo ever and the movie "Brainsan" only help cemented that belief"! The premise of a teenage loner who loved Horror Flicks, Violent Video Games, and Rock Music was just as easy to relate to when I was 12 as it is now at age 32! Of course for a 90s Horror movie mostly about technology it feels beyond dated now there's a lot about this movie still holds up really well in my opinion! For example the score to this flick is truly haunting, the time spent inside the video game world are clever & surreal, and also the main antagonist of the flick known only as "The Trickster" is a character who never outstayed his welcome and one you'd like to know more about if there was ever a follow up! And hopefully there will be a "Branscan 2" some day, but whomever makes it better include "Igor"!
