Eric's Top Ten Movies of 2014

By Eric Polk-
Over time, I've never had a problem coming up with my favorite horror movie watched in the current year. There always seemed to be one movie towering over the rest of the celluloid thoroughbreds. This year, it was a helluva lot different. Three contenders(two disturbing, one an animated classic) each had a legit claim to my #1 Horror Movie of 2014. Before you read my top ten horror movies in 2014, understand in order to qualify for a spot, I've had to have watched the movie for the first time during the year not when it was originally released. Disclaimer out of the way, here we go...

Dollar Bin Horror Giveaway - Mini Schitzo Living Dead Doll SIGNED by Ed Long and Damien Glonek!!!

If you haven't heard of Living Dead Dolls...wait...you're reading a blog ran by a woman obsessed with them...yes you have (if you somehow missed all my posts about them, start with my interview with them HERE). And you know you love them. Maybe you won't tell your co-workers that you secretly want to horde little zombie/demon/horror dolls because they would be all freaked out, but you want to. You know you do...and I can help you start! (Holy shit...I sounded like a crack dealer there...anyway, keep reading!)


This past weekend at Cinema Wasteland, I got to hang out with Ed long and Damien Glonek, creators of LDD, once again. They are AWESOME people and if you can make it to a Cinema Wasteland or any convention they may be at, stop by the LDD table and get some dolls! Or go to Mezcotoyz.com! This time though, I brought back a little gift for one lucky Dollar Bin Horror reader!!!

This giveaway is for a sealed Schitzo mini LDD signed in person by both Ed and Damien! The signature is on the shrink-wrap, so it's probably best to enjoy this little fella in the box...a little fun fact: Schitzo is based on a serial killer John Wayne Gacy! Winning is pretty simple, as usual. All you have to do is leave a COMMENT to this post with your NAME, EMAIL ADDRESS, and tell me if this is your first LDD or if not, how many do you own? I love hearing from other collectors...or converting non-collectors into addicts! The contest will end on October 23rd and the winner will be announced both on the site and on that day's episode of Dollar Bin Horror Radio! This is probably my favorite contest I have done because LDDs are such a huge part of my life and my love for horror, so share with all your friends and good luck!!!

Dollar Bin Horror Spotlight - Daniel

Do you remember a little post I did about a 10 minute short horror comedy called Little Reaper? Well Peter Dukes and Dream Seekers Productions are back with Daniel, a 3 minute paranormal horror short film about a boy hiding in a closet from a dangerous intruder, but is all what it seems? (synopsis from youtube)

Daniel is a very strong short for just being a little over 3 minutes long. The tagline is perfect for this film because you already thing you know whats happening in the first few seconds, but NOPE! A wonderful twist awaits and...the hard part about trying to write a review for something three minutes long is that any little thing you say can be a damn spoiler! What I can say is it's very well shot and looks polished and professional. For being so short, the acting draws you in and the image of the one dead person (again, don't wanna spoil anything) looks chilling and pops this short into life...although Daniel himself looks even more terrifying when you finally get a good look at him...but you'll have to watch to see why! It's free to watch and I have included it below so you can see for yourself. I love short horror films. They can give you that fix you need for a scare on the go, on a break at work, or when you just don't have the time for a feature film. Great short film makers can tell a fantastic story withing a minimal amount of time, and Peter Dukes has shown once again he makes great shorts!

Help Fund Caesar & Otto's Paranormal Halloween!


If you've been a reader of this blog, then you've already heard of my favorite comedic horror duo in indie horror, Caesar & Otto! And if you haven't seen Summer Camp Massacre or Deadly Xmas, I suggest you get on it right now...well, not right this second...we need you to help them fund their third film and you gotta keep reading! I adore these two and I've been waiting on them to take on the greatest time of the year, Halloween! Here's a short summary of the film from their indiegogo page:

Caesar & Otto's Paranormal Halloween is loving, yet comical tribute to so many of the films we grew up with. Taking on everything from Halloween to the Shining, the Amityville and well beyond. But it's also our chance to show the audience the history behind these characters. Where do they come from, and give a deeper understanding of just who they are. But what makes this indiegogo campaign different from the rest is the following: 
A short, yet untitled Caesar and Otto bonus film to be shot in tandem with Paranormal Halloween. The first fully interactive crowdfunding experience where you the audience will choose the title, dialog, and most every detail on screen. All proceeds go to Caesar & Otto's Paranormal Halloween.

That's right folks, not only will Caesar & Otto be starring in a feature film this time, but a short film that YOU will help create through the funding! How? The perks!!! If you've ever donated to an indiegogo project, then you know that depending on how much you give, you get a different "perk" as a thank you. These perks put YOU in charge! You can have them read a message from you in the credits, have your voice heard in the short, or even have Caesar call you for a 10 minute chat! You can even get a cameo appearance, be killed onscreen, or have your very own DVD commentary! Or if you're REALLY broke and just wanna help out, you can donate $1 (ANY little bit helps people!).

So where do you go to find out more and donate? Click below! Remember folks, ANYTHING helps and being that I've watched their films from the start, I can tell you EVERYTHING given will go directly towards the making of this film!

It Came From Netflix:Bubba Ho-Tep(2003)

By Eric Polk-
File this under the 'better later than never' tab. Bubba Ho-Tep has grown into such a strong cult following that doing a straight review of this is rather useless. What I would like to say is Bruce Campbell does an awesome impersonation of Elvis, perhaps the best. This movie is hilarity wrapped in a scare flick. Ossie Davis has JFK was the perfect complement to Campbell it could have been horror comedy's answer to Clint Eastwood/Morgan Freeman had Davis not passed away in 2005. How the ancient Egyptian entity extracts his souls is rather...ummm...cleansing.

Dollar Bin Splurge of the Week:Deliver Us From Evil(2014)

By Eric Polk-
Priests, possessions, exorcisms. We have seen this over and over and over and over again in the 40 + years since the release of The Exorcist. The bodice has been ripped and raped in nearly every conceivable way from direct knock offs from foreign lands to blaxplotation to direct sequels to....you get the picture. While many of these movies fall flat, there are a few that rise above the burning holy water such as this movie.

Dollar Bin Horror Spotlight (AND Giveaway!) - eXXXploitees

Hey everyone! I know it's been too damn long since I posted a giveaway (or even posted for that matter) but hopefully the sheer awesomeness of these shirts will make up for it...


Chris Sink is a man of many talents. He's a painter (his true crime ones of Ed Gein and Albert Fish being my favorites), he's a tattoo artist out of  Louisville, and he makes killer T-shirts from films that are hard to find shirts of! eXXXploitees is his company and he makes thick, high quality 100% cotton shirts printed with plastisol ink. Each shirt is hand screened and features designs from horror, exploitation, grind house, sleaze, and cult films. Do you know how hard it is to find a shirt for fucking "Manos: The Hands of Fate"? Who the hell makes that!?! Well, Chris does as you can see below!

The movie so..."nice"...they had to name it twice!...literally, it's fucking hands in spanish...
Chris likes to keep the designs old-school and simple and in his own words, here's why:

"What I try to do with my shirts is to offer designs that aren't widely available. It seems like every is either doing the exact same designs, or they're doing more comedic takes on them. While I don't think there is anything wrong with that at all, and I do own TONS of those shirts myself, I just started to miss the days of simple one or two color, straightforward designs. I think that stems from growing up in the punk rock scene in the late 80's, when that was mostly what you found. Simple, straight up designs in either black or white ink, hand screened nice and thick, on good quality shirts. Not a cheap transfer on a thin shirt. I also started to notice that there were a lot of movies that didn't have shirts available, so one day I thought "Why not do them myself?". I started with a few and then I noticed that people started asking me where I got them, and if I would make one for them. And so here I am... haha."

And the prices are just right. Starting at $20, you can get great shirts from your favorite grindhouse flicks. Personally, my favorite is Mark of the Devil (the top pic), but any one of them would be a treat to own...which is exactly what will happen to one lucky DBH reader!!!



eXXXploitees has generously given one lucky DBH reader the chance to receive their choice of any one shirt from the eXXXploitees's Etsy store in their choice of size. All you have to do is go to the store (https://www.etsy.com/shop/eXXXploitees), make the toughest decision of your life and choose your favorite design, then come back to this post and comment which shirt it is with your NAME and EMAIL ADDRESS! PLEASE remember to leave an email or I will not be able to contact you! The winner will be chosen randomly (I pull names out of my magical hat of free shit) and announced/contacted on July 18th (in two weeks). I will put your name in the hat twice if you "Like" their Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/exploitees). Add to your comment here that you liked them so I know. Remember, the contest ends July 18th so enter, share with your friends, and good luck! A HUGE Thank You to Chris and eXXXploitees for allowing us to do this giveaway and for making some of the most kick ass underground shirts out there!!! Buy them NOW!

Dollar Bin Horror Spotlight - The Puppet Monster Massacre

A group of teens are challenged to spend a night in the Wagner mansion on the edge of town. Little do they know the owner has concocted a monstrosity in the basement and plans to make the hapless teens the creature's first big meal.

I have been wanting to see this for a while now since I heard about it at Cinema Wasteland a few years back (didn't get it then cause I ran out of money...shit happens when I drink). Luckily, Dustin Mills (writer, director, and character voice of the film) was at the latest OSS zombie walk and I finally had a chance to grab a signed copy. I went into this film already having an image in my head of what I thought the film would be...one of those "so bad, it's good" types. But I was way off...the film is actually GOOD good! Like, REALLY well done and not funny because it's bad, but funny because it's actually fucking FUNNY! Yes, it is an indie horror comedy and yes, it's all puppets and CGI backgrounds, but it's not a cheese-fest at all. It's very well written, the characters are hilarious (ESPECIALLY Grandpa), and the puppets look fantastic (even the puppet boobs were impressive)! I actually had to pause the DVD to catch my breath when Grandpa first came on screen cause I lost it! And the penguin...definitely NOT from happy feet! Oh, and the bunnies...I can't even say it cause I don't want to spoil anything, but I almost fell off my couch. I love how the dvd extras have 3 commentaries and the rejected puppet ideas for the monster so you can see and hear how things came together. Plain and simple, if you haven't seen The Puppet Monster Massacre, you should...no, you must! You can get the dvd for just $10 from http://dmp.storenvy.com/ and it's worth every damn penny!


P.S. This guy almost made me piss my pants twice...best fucking part of the movie right here!
