Glenn Danzig’s directorial debut, is a horror anthology that compiles stories from Denzig’s line of comic books of the same name. Stories which focus on horror content that’s often sexual and violent in nature, usually featuring scantily-clad female protagonists.

Starring: Ashley Wisdom, Rachel Alig, and Alice Tate

Directed and written by: Glenn Danzig

  Not being familiar with Glenn Danzig’s comics might leave the audience with a little bit of shell shock once “Verotika” gets rolling. The title may give some of it away, but it’s a lot to handle. It’s a sexy women driven anthology, featuring Morella (Kayden Kross) as the hostess. She gives the usual intro and conclusion to each story in her own way. She certainly gets the party started by poking a woman’s eyes out, and sucking some blood before the first story begins.
  “The Albino Spider of Dajette” is the first story, which starts with Dajette (Ashley Wisdom) getting up close and personal with a guy. Things heat up to the point when her top is about to come off, but the man is in for a big surprise. Her nipples have been replaced with eyes, and they begin to cry when the guy runs off. As weird as that seems, the tears from those eyes create another unsual being who goes on a killing spree.

  The second story is “Change of Face,” and it takes place in a strip club. It follows Mystery Girl (Rachel Alig), yes Mystery Girl, who has something wrong with her face. When she’s not performing on stage, she’s cutting the face off of other women. The police pick up her trail, but can they stop her, or will she remain a mystery?
  The final story is called “Drukija Contessa of Blood,” and is somewhat familiar. It’s all about drinking virgin blood to keep your beauty. In this case, Drukija (Alice Tate) is having young virgin women around her kingdom captured, and held prisoner until she's ready for their blood. Apparently she likes bathing in their blood, and is pretty merciless in getting what she wants.

  All three stories present a combination of horror, and a sexual female presence. The first story might be the most bizarre, and certainly presents a different way of creating a monster. The second story picks up from a blood standpoint, but will also distract the audience with plenty of dancing women. The third story will definitely quench anyone’s thirst for blood, but seems to go on a little longer than needed.
  The stories seem to lack some of the horrific punch as they amp up the imagery instead. It’s like they’re painting a picture more than telling a story. Women’s bodies are on display, in more ways than one, as the stories move the focus from nipple eyes, to a scarred face, and finishing with an obsession on youth and beauty. It doesn’t help that the acting is up and down. In the end, “Verotika” presents something different that will work for some more than others. With that, I give it 2 pools of blood.

Horror Movie Survival Kit

Man Crates is a new company that ships awesome gifts for men in custom wooden crates that he has to open with a crowbar! At Man Crates, it is their mission to end the difficulties that have long been associated with buying gifts for men.  And what does Man Crates have to do with horror? Well, while they have a wide assortment of crates, they also have horror themed ones like their "Zombie Survival Crate." Someone at Man Crates asked me to create my own Horror Movie Survival Kit as part of their Halloween celebration so here we go! Us horror fans know that is usually takes a lot to survive a horror film. A lot of it comes from the person's will to live, and a little luck. Obviously those things don't come in a crate, so lets start by thinking about the kind of horror movies we could end up in. We have zombies, vampires, werewolves, ghosts, aliens, end of the world scenarios, and even sharknados! Even with a crate I'm not sure we could be totally prep

Parents Diane (Vinessa Shaw) and Robert (Pat Healy) figured that was the best place to be with their teen daughter Melissa (Sierra McCormick), and young son Bobby (John James Cronin). In a way it turns out to be a good decision because a tree comes down onto the house destroying part of it. The family is safe except for one thing.   The tree has blocked the bathroom door, and left them stranded
