Wherein ChillerPop presents a short, unwordy lazy roundup of the month in phantasmagoric, creepy, spooky, speculative, fantastical, wonderful, science-fictiony, monstrous, psychotronic and strange...and stuff like that...
I was introduced by my friend to the jaw droppingly disturbing world of....Salad Fingers! (and you may have probably known about this for months, however I am not highly susceptible to viral stuff)
I'm frustrated in my attempts to try to see Wicker Man
pseudo-sequel (spiritual sequel?) The Wicker Tree
, on which across the pond and selected screening reviewers have had mixed feelings. I don't care - that's how much I love the original. Again: Nic Cage? NOT INVITED TO THIS PARTY.
This may turn into a stand-alone article, but Lifetime Movies have much worth for connoiseurs of psychotronica. And there surely could be no more perfect Lifetime movie than Drew Peterson: Untouchable
starring Rob Lowe. I don't want to suggest that we should find mirth and amusement in a true story of domestic violence (in fact, this article takes that very stand
), but Drew Peterson: Untouchable
was unfortunately a howlingly funny bit of unintentional wrong fun. Try not to be enthralled by the hypnotic power of the 'stache and the midwestern accent....or Rob Lowe's striptease...
Finally, a fellow OSer and I share an obsession with pop culture moral panics and conspiracies of a spiritual nature. I encourage you to read Beth Winegarner's "Backward Messages
" (I'm very jealous of the blog title).
