SINISTER SEVEN: MIDNIGHT SYNDICATE’S EDWARD DOUGLAS ON HIS FILM THE DEAD MATTER

on February 17, 2011 | 2 Comments

Rue Morgue readers are likely familiar with the atmospheric music of Midnight Syndicate. The duo of Edward Douglas and Gavin Goszka are fixtures at our annual Festival of Fear conventions, and their atmospheric albums are essentially spooky soundtracks to films which don’t exist. So it came as little surprise to learn that Douglas had actually made a horror film himself.

SINISTER SEVEN: HATCHET 2 DIRECTOR ADAM GREEN

on January 31, 2011 | 4 Comments

Adam Green’s 2006 slasher film Hatchet boldly branded itself a return to “old-school American horror” – and rightly so. The story of supernatural killer Victor Crowley was unremittingly bloody, earning the ire of the MPAA, who bestowed it with the commercial kiss of death: an NC17. Even more cartoonish and bloody, Hatchet II amps up the mayhem considerably.

SINISTER SEVEN: Q&A WITH “DARK STARS RISING” AUTHOR SHADE RUPE

on January 6, 2011 | 1 Comment


Journalist Shade Rupe has spent much of his professional life writing about the figures who work in the margins of popular culture. Dark Stars Rising (available now through Headpress) is a massive volume which collects several of Rupe’s most memorable interviews, including directors Gaspar Noé (Irreversible), Richard Stanley (Dust Devil) and Floria Sigismondi (Marilyn Manson’s “The Beautiful People” video); actors Udo Kier (Andy Warhol’s Dracula) and Crispin Glover (Willard); actress Tura Satana (Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!); late gore aficionado Chas. Balun (Deep Red magazine); musician Genesis P. Orridge (Throbbing Gristle); and writer Peter Sotos (Pure).
We invited Shade, who will be contributing to Rue Morgue soon, to do a Sinister Seven for us via email, and he sent back nearly 11 pages worth of answers. Rather than editing it down, though, we thought you might enjoy this extended look into the mind of a man whose cultural obsessions are perfectly in tune with the weird and wonderful. Scroll down for some of the craziest anecdotes from a life well-lived.
