    So here it is. This is the live score I wrote for Inferno. Performed live in a movie theatre in Toronto last October but now with plague-life reducing us to strictly home viewing, I've assembled a revised/improved version so you can stream it at your own convenience.

    First Off: Play As Loud As Humanly Possible - OR - HEADPHONES!
    Actually, headphones would be my go to choice, anything to ensure the bass is overwhelming and all details can be…

  • Sole Survivor

    Sole Survivor

    ★★★½

    This one feels like a supernatural slasher with the kills drained right out of it, leaving just a solid brick of gloom to drag you down into the depths of despair.

    Denise Watson was supposed to die. She was on that plane that crashed, with every passenger decimated but her, making her the Sole Survivor. As she tries to regain normalcy in her life after experiencing such an intense brush with death, things begin to unravel in her world, with…

    Formula for a Murder

    ★★★★

    Welcome to a 1985 G.I.A.L.L.O. = fried up in digital sheen, blaring synths across the stereo spectrum, and the soapiest of daytime drama sandwiched between all those bombastic kills... Sign Me The Fuck Up!

    Shock

    ★★★½

    It's a sad day as we have lost one of the Italo Gods: the Goddess, Daria Nicolodi.
    So a revisit of Shock felt necessary, as she graces almost every moment of this Bava helmed horror flick.

    Daria plays a woman haunted both figuratively and literally by her dead husband who killed himself after years spent hooked on smack. She moves back into the house they shared together along with her son Marco and new husband Bruno. Soon enough Marco starts…

  • Dream Demon

    Dream Demon

    ★★★★

    Dream Demon is one unique British 80's horror gem; low on shocks but dominated by dream sequences, it feels like you're sipping tea on the other side of the abyss.

    Diana is a prim and proper bride-to-be with some serious cold feet causing her to experience violent nightmares. Jenny, a blue-haired goth-lite export from LA, shows up to Diana's house claiming to have lived there when she was a little girl. Jenny is looking for spiritual answers, Diana is bogged…
