Pictures come courtesy of Shudder

US programming highlights for April 2019 on horror streaming service, Shudder:

Lizzie and Murder Party will both making their Shudder premiere.

From Shudder's about "Lizzie" about:

Academy Award (R) nominee Chloƫ Sevigny (Boys Don't Cry, "Big Love") stars as Lizzie Borden, the notorious woman at the heart of one of the most enduring mysteries in American history. After a lifetime of loneliness, Lizzie finds a kindred spirit in housemaid Bridget Sullivan (Kristen Stewart) and their secret intimacy sparks an unthinkable act. Director Craig William Macneill (The Boy (2015), "Channel Zero: Candle Cove") explores the days leading up to the savage crimes in a dark tale of repression, exploitation and thwarted dreams. Coming to Shudder April 11.


From Shudder about "Monster Party":

Three thieves break into a party secretly hosted by a group of recovering serial killers and their simple heist turns into a battle for survival. Coming to Shudder April 25.



The new weekly series of The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs, which actually starts this Friday night, will be airing! I am counting down the minutes to spending time with Joe Bob Briggs and the lovely "Darcy the Mail Girl" as they present two movies every week!

There will also be a special "half way to Halloween" collection with the first five entries in the Halloween franchise, including my third favorite entry, 4 and perennial fan favorite 3!


Also of note, is that on April 8, we will have the Shudder premiere of The Haunted (1991) a made for TV movie based on a case from Ed and Lorriane Warren (whose paranormal cases inspired The Conjuring movies). Sally Kirkland received a Gloden Globe nomination for her performance in this horror flick. Apparently, it has never been released on DVD or Blu-ray in the US. I actually think that I may have seen this one, but even if I did I do not remember anything about it.

AXEL BRAUN Casts KENZIE TAYLOR As Captain Marvel

From the official press release:

Harder, Deeper, Faster. KENDRA TAYLOR to Star in Role Once Offered to RONDA ROUSEY


LOS ANGELES, CA – (MARCH 25, 2019) – After an extensive casting search, Axel Braun and Wicked Comix are pleased to announce that Kenzie Taylor has been cast to lead the legendary director's latest endeavor, Captain Marvel XXX: An Axel Braun Parody. While further official details are still under wraps, 2019’s reigning AVN Best Director (Feature) couldn't be more excited to showcase Taylor’s formidable acting skills and unstoppable sexual prowess in his most anticipated movie of the year.

“Over a hundred and twenty girls submitted audition videos," the director exclaimed, positively shocked, "and although I'm used to huge turnouts when holding physical casting calls, this was literally insane! The top agents were as usual very proactive and efficient, but this time a huge percentage of submissions also came from self-booking talent. The audition consisted of a fairly long and pretty complex monologue, and 99% of the girls memorized it in its entirety, which was very impressive and indicative of a refreshing level of professionalism and commitment in the industry. More than half of the submissions were very good, and it took me a couple of days to narrow it down to a shortlist of four exceptional ones. Then yesterday OC Modeling sent me Kenzie’s video...and I immediately realized my search was over. Her audition was literally on a whole different level from anyone else's. Kenzie’s acting was fantastic, and she managed to show strength, intensity, and vulnerability at the same time, and she projected a genuine aura of wholesomeness while exuding the right amount of sex-appeal. She will be a phenomenal Carol Danvers, and I can’t wait to see her in the Captain Marvel costume!”

A master of the parody form and the most awarded adult director in history, Axel Braun is in a league of his own at this point. His most recent Wicked Comix epic, the big-budget Marvel spoof Deadpool XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, was a massive commercial success which topped the sales charts and took home four major trophies at the 2019 AVN awards, Best Parody, Best Actor (Seth Gamble), Best Art Direction, and Best Makeup.

“I am so full of gratitude, and totally speechless,” beamed a clearly excited Taylor. “This is my first real opportunity to show everyone what I’m truly capable of as an adult actress, and I really am just mind blown...I feel like I’m dreaming and I need to wake up! All I can say is thank you so much Axel Braun and Wicked Pictures for trusting me with this amazing role! I am really looking forward to embarking on this journey with Axel, and digging into the complexities and the physicality of this character. Saying that I will give this 110% would be an understatement.”  

Now beginning its third week at the top of the box office, and anchored by a spectacular performance by Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson, Captain Marvel is already the most successful mainstream movie release of 2019. Yet while the adventures of Carol Danvers may be new to the silver screen, the character is one that Braun has sought to bring to his Parody AxelVerse for years. He famously offered the role to professional wrestler, actress, and mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey in 2015, with a $5,000,000 public bid chronicled by TMZ (https://bit.ly/2JoWFui), IGN (https://bit.ly/2OfRLyE), MovieWeb (https://bit.ly/2TNqzNE), and others.  

Captain Marvel XXX: An Axel Braun Parody is the director's first big-budget production to go before the cameras since his ambitious black and white original feature The Possession of Mrs Hyde swept the 36th AVN Awards in Las Vegas, winning Best Action/Thriller, Best Director-Feature, Best Screenplay (written by Braun in collaboration with his late father, Golden Age porn pioneer Lasse Braun, and his son, adult filmmaker Rikki Braun), and Best Boy/Girl Sex Scene (lead actress Avi Love & Roman Nomar), before snagging the evening's top prize, Movie of the Year, marking the fourth time in Braun’s illustrious career that he has won the most coveted AVN award. 
Harder. Deeper. Faster. Captain Marvel XXX: An Axel Braun Parody will be available in late summer 2019.

Picture courtesy of Girlsway.



From the official press release:

(Montreal, QC / March 20, 2019) -- Adult Time/Girlsway is making MILF magic in a brand-new original series, Moms on Moms, bringing together an exceptional all-star cast every month, starting March 19 at AdultTime.com/channel/momsonmoms.
Cherie DeVille and Kenzie Taylor kick off the lesbian series’ first episode, ‘Sister's Mid-Life Crisis’, a lighthearted erotic fable that flirts with family roleplay and illicit temptation from a more mature point of view.
In the scene, Cherie surprises her step-sister Kenzie with the revelation that she’s divorcing her husband after many unfulfilling years, and that she wants to spend the rest of her life with someone else. “So, who is this person?” asks Kenzie. Cherie smiles devilishly: “YOU.” Kenzie tells Cherie she’s interested in someone else too… “it’s you.”
Moms on Moms producer Bree Mills, who serves as Head of Production for Gamma Films, said that “we’ve been playing with the idea of an all-MILF episodic series for quite some time, and the site’s fans - with whom we regularly share content ideas on our Adult Time community page - have voiced their excitement and support of these new scenes.”
With exhilarating performances from adult film’s most popular entertainers, including Reagan Foxx and Bridgette B (who star in the upcoming Moms on Moms episode ‘Battle of the Bosses’), Mills promises that Girlsway’s newest line of lesbian content is its most thrilling yet.
“Girlsway fans - particularly those who enjoy our Mommy’s Girl line - will appreciate seeing their favorite performers together in compelling, age-appropriate themes. They are in for quite a treat!”
Sister's Mid-Life Crisis’ is now accessible to all members of Gamma Films studios' sites, as well as the new Adult Time platform. Those interested in sneaking a peek or purchasing the series can visit to sign up and subscribe to Adult Time's entire catalog of award-winning content, giving its members access to over 50,000 scenes within the Gamma Films studio network.

 I recently reviewed this Jason Voorhees from "Friday the 13th Part 3" here.
This King Kong is bigger than the one I reviewed recently!
 This Chucky, which has alternate parts for "Child's Play 2" & "3", will be coming in the mail for me. Expect a review shortly after it does!





 I don't buy "Living Dead Dolls". but I might need to change that for the Sabrina from "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina". She is AWESOME!

WICKED COMIX Announces Casting Call For 'Captain Marvel XXX: An Axel Braun Parody'

Picture courtesy of Wicked Pictures

From the official Wicked Pictures press release:
LOS ANGELESCA – (MARCH 18, 2019) –  Wicked Comix is proud to announce that pre-production has begun on legendary director Axel Braun’s newest parody, Captain Marvel XXX: An Axel Braun Parody and that the search for the actress who will play the lead character is officially on.
The ambitious big-budget project is the acclaimed imprint's anxiously awaited follow-up to the 2019 multi-award-winning movie Deadpool XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, recipient of four AVN awards, including a ninth consecutive Best Parody for Braun, and a much deserved Best Actor for Seth Gamble’s uncanny portrayal of the "Merc with a Mouth."

“I actually had been working for the past two months on a completely different parody”, said Braun, “But last week I went to see Captain Marvelon opening day, and ten minutes into the movie I just knew I had to do this, and I had to do it now.”

Now beginning its second week at the top of the box office and anchored by a spectacular performance by Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson, Captain Marvel is already the most successful mainstream release of 2019, with global receipts expected to surpass $1 billion before the film leaves cinemas.

“It’s an absolutely perfect movie to parody!” said Braun with a grin. “I was so exhilarated after watching it that I left the theater, got in my car and literally wrote the treatment on my iPad in the parking lot. I cannot wait to start shooting it." While characters and story details are still tightly under wraps, Braun is looking for a female performer whose acting ability and charisma can match her sexual prowess.

All licensed talent agencies have been notified and sent sides, so any performers looking to audition should reach out to their respective agents for details. Self-booking talent are welcome and encouraged to request sides by emailing casting@axelbraun.com. Submissions should then be sent to the same email address using the subject line: "Captain Marvel Audition”

“For the sides I picked a fairly long monologue, and probably not the easiest to memorize” warns the director, “but this is going to be a very demanding role, and I want to make sure that whoever I choose will be able to really bring this character to life, and give me and the movie 110%. It all starts with showing me that they’re willing to take the time and put in the work for a killer audition. And if I see someone who’s great, but not right for this specific role, I will always remember them for future projects.”

Performers who previously won a role in a Braun movie with a video audition include Kleio Valentien, who ended up winning back-to-back Best Supporting Actress and Best Actress AVN awards for her portrayal of Harley Quinn in Batman v Superman XXX and Suicide Squad XXX, and Avi Love, the star of the 2019 AVN Movie of the Year The Possession of Mrs. Hyde, and winner of the Best Boy/Girl Sex Scene AVN award for the same movie.

Those interested in assuming the titular role in Braun's next blockbuster are also encouraged to peruse previous incarnations of Carol Danvers in all media, from classic comic books and graphic novels to such alternate resources as Ranker's Famous Women Who Almost Played Captain Marvel (https://bit.ly/2FeuTN1).

Monster-Mania: March 2019

On March 9, 2019, my friends, Freddie and Alan (his first time at this con!) headed out to Cherry Hill in New Jersey for the March 2019 edition of Monster-Mania. Needless to say, we had a fucking blast!

This was as hot as a con can get, with Saturday tickets having been sold out in advance. Thankfully, the three of us got ours beforehand. The place was packed, though it would begin to thin out by around 4 or so. 

Anyway, as one would expect certain lines were super long, for example the ones for Neve Campbell and Fairuza Balk were crazy ass long! They were part of The Craft reunion. This was the first time all four of them were doing a con together. Balk was always my favorite in the film, but her line was too much for me to wait (at least two hours from what I heard). I wanted to enjoy myself and had business to conduct, anyway.

I did get the other two actress though, beginning with still beautiful Rachel True. I cannot believe that she is 52, as she clearly does not age! And, best of all, she was so awesome in person! I told her how happy it made me to have all of them at the con. I also talked with her about the amazing Shudder documentary about blacks in, Horror Noire. When she took the pic with me she grabbed my arm and said, "Someone works out!" I said, "Yes, I do!" I can honestly say that this made my year. I can die a happy man! As a matter of fact, True is so awesome in person, that I was dying laughing getting my pic with her!

The next and last person I went up to was the beautiful Robin Tunney. She was very sweet and down to earth in person and even more beautiful! Here eyes are absolutely stunning!

Here is my signed, by them, The Craft DVD. I had pre-ordered the new Scream Factory Blu-ray, but alas it has not come in yet. So, I guess I am keeping my DVD when that disc arrives, which honestly speaking, should be super soon.

After that I has spent so much on autographs that I just deiced to enjoy the con. Here are just some of my favorite cosplays that I saw at the con.





And, here is the swag I bought at the con. They are:
a Fright-Rags Poltergeist tee (bought at their booth, of course)
an Aliens patch for my battle-jacket
on Blu-ray: 
Audition (Arrow Video Edition)
Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer
Trailer Trauma 4: Television Trauma
and a Funko Pop Metallica Lady Justice toy

Below you will see me getting ready for my interview with the always amazing Soska twins. It was conducted after their awesome panel. I'll be posting it soon, so keep your eyes open for it!

That's it for now. I will probably be going to NJ Horror Con (for the first time ever!) this Saturday, so if you are there be sure to say hi!
