Good morning my fellow lovers of Under-Belly! I’m so excited to announce that I am currently working on an interview project with Malcolm Deegan, an indie horror screenplay writer and movie director from Ireland and definitely one scary and brainy dude. His debut film, “Fractional,” made my skin crawl and my brain kick into high gear. “Fractional” won 2012 best screenplay from the Independent Filmmakers Showcase and was an official selection of 2012 Underground Cinema Film Festival.

“Fractional” is an amazing film for a number of reasons that I won’t yet divulge. If you’re curious, as I am, about the inner workings of horror minds, please stop by Morsels for Monsters and check out the interview with Malcolm on Monday, July 22nd 2012.

In the meantime, support your fellow indie and check out the “Fractional” website: You can rent the movie or order the DVD and believe me when I tell you that this film is worth the $3.2o U.S.D.

I’ll see you all in a few short weeks with some great info on the film, production, and the brain capable of creating such discomfort with my Malcolm Deegan interview!

And as always, my fellows, thank you for all your continued support!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted and I intend to write a post telling you all why, but the subject matter is pretty personal and I don’t know if I’m quite ready for it. Therefore, to get back into the swing of things, I decided to write an article on a subject with which I always have fun– horror films.

I’ve been watching a particular horror movie a lot lately– “Sinister,” which I’ve reviewed for this blog (you can find the review in the Cover Your Mouth section of this blog).  I don’t know what it is about this film that turns me into a moth, but I keep battering myself against this piece of brilliantly terrifying art whenever it pops into my mind. In fact, I’ve watched the film so many times, I’m beginning to forget the sensation I experienced on the first view. That sensation– perfect fear– subsided after the first view and now, after about a dozen views, I can hardly recall what about the film scared me so badly in the first place. (more…)
