Book: Camp Ghoul Mountain Part VI: The Official Novelization by Jonathan Raab

Author Jonathan Raab (the actual author) has been hired to do a novelization of Camp Ghoul Mountain Part VI. The Camp Ghoul Mountain series is a transparent riff on the Friday the 13th series where an animal-masked serial killer murders teens in a mountain summer camp. The book is thus divided in telling the story of the fictional slasher movie franchise's most infamous entry as well as giving a bizarre backstory about its troubled production history. The resulting book is loopy and meta, a love letter to 80's slasher movies, 90's conspiracy theories, and B-movies throughout the years. [more inside]

Mystery Science Theater 3000: INCREDIBLY STRANGE CREATURES WHO STOPPED LIVING & BECAME MIXEDUP ZOMBIES  Rewatch   Season 8, Ep 12

Rewatch! Ray Dennis Steckler, a.k.a. "Cash Flagg," was one of the more infamous Z-list Hollywood directors, and he was responsible for this film, which is something. A guy gets hypno'd by a carnival fortune teller into becoming an insane killer. The fortune teller's assistant Ortega is a sight, and immediately became the Torgo of the Sci-Fi Channel era of MST3K. Lots of the movie is just time spent watching bad performances on-stage at the carnival, pointless and unabridged. This movie is one of the worst in the show's history. Previously. [more inside]
