He left a note on the door: “I’m killing myself, the key is with Claude Fonsale, the lawyer.” Beside his corpse was a second note, railing against “all the bastards who have been a pain in the arse all my bloody life”. Molinier staged his death, just as he staged so much of his life. He found it amusing, he once wrote, that those who would come to dissect his corpse (which he had donated to science) would discover his toenails immaculately painted red. Molinier, who also had a thing about guns, shot himself in the mouth in front of a mirror. He wanted to watch. Throughout his work there is a quest for obliteration, losing himself in sex and in the merger with a fantasised feminine alter ego.

Disturbing, not pleasing, should be art’s role

Belgian festival director and curator Frie Leysen challenged Australian artists and arts organisations to be bold, and to challenge an increasingly ossified status quo in her closing keynote address at the 2015 Australian Theatre Forum(ATF).
‘We created a culture of “pleasing” that is now hijacking us,’ she said. ‘We want to please everybody: the audiences, the subscribers, the sponsors, the press, the colleagues… a big mistake!
‘Art should not please. On the contrary. Art has to show where it hurts in our societies, in our world. We urgently need the courage back to pick up this role of disturbers again.’

FBI Joining 'Long Island Serial Killer' Investigation

Sini's announcement of the FBI involvement comes one day after the department's former chief, James Burke, was indicted on federal charges that he beat a man suspected of stealing items from the officer's SUV, and then conspired with other officers to cover it up. Burke, who resigned as chief in October amid the federal investigation, has pleaded not guilty.

The confessed larcenist’s illicit haul included a duffel bag containing some of Burke’s property, including handguns, ammunition, mace, and what Loeb described as a stash of “nasty porn” and “sex toys.”

We Are The Sprocket Holes vol. 225: Top DVDs of 2015

nightmarishly reappraises the mock-snuff genre with an atmosphere of humid putridity and ritualistic quietude. 

an artfully startling yet surprisingly humane look at rape culture and all its tangential effects.

the duo behind You're Next offers up and synth ladden neon blasted action horror that plays like a brainstorming session between William Friedkin and John Carpenter being interpreted by Buddy Giovinazzo going off tapes he secretly recorded through a wall. and also Maika Monroe needs to call me. 

if Crimson Peak left you cold (as it did for me), then this surrealistic modern gothic tale with no small nods to Mario Bava, Antonio Margheriti, and the like should cure what ales ya. 

murder competition between internet BFFs from the minds behind The Raid. 

another entry in the burgeoning "What Could Have Been" Comedy Docu-Drama genre. doesn't quiet reach the heights of Jodorowsky's DUNE, but still packed with enough insight into the frequently terrible process of big game film making. 

David Cronenberg's most genuinely subversive film since 97's Crash and his funniest film ever. incredible performances from all involved. 

somewhere between Possession, Thantomorphose, and a little Videodrome for structure lurks this brilliant blend of occult conspiracy, allegorical body horror, and coal-raking Hollywood satire. 

An American ghost story's rustic surface with an Italian ghost story irrational beat. 

Sion Sono inimitable love letter to the blissfully batshit genre cinema of his homeland.

R.I.P. Gunnar Hansen, the Original Leatherface from ‘The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’

shit dude, what can be said?

even after years of viewing /collecting ultra obscure hyper disturbing mega gore torture rape surrealist nightmare films from across the globe, when i'm asked "what's your favorite horror film?" (fuck, "what's your favorite film") the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre is still the first name that pops in my head.

i can't remember how old i was, but i was in a comic book shop looking at model kits. before McFarlane Toys kicked off the golden age of Horror themed action figures with the Movie Maniacs line, the only way you could get scaled down replicas of your favorite horror movie characters was through model kits (most of them by Screamin), which you had to build and paint yourself. my regular comic shop had a shelf in the back filled with Jasons, Freddys, Michaels, Pinheads, and one character i hadn't yet seen on the USA Network, a beast of a dude in a crusty butcher smock holding a massive chainsaw over his head. the box said "LEATHERFACE", a reference to the stitched up mask adoring the character; something that looked like a catcher's mitt that had been sliced up, sculpted, and re-purposed into a muzzle.

i later discovered this character was one of the villains in a film called The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, where he and his backwoods brothers (and mostly enfeebled grandfather) hack-up some youngins' and grind them into supper. i had already become bored with Halloween, Friday the 13th, and the rest that saturated the basic cable blocks that i lived off of back then, and this looked and sounded like something so much more than those. my local video store didn't have a copy of this film, so i made do with articles, reviews, interviews, any information i could find on this film. when i finally saw (seewhatididthere) a copy of the VHS available at The Wall, i bought it immediately and proceeded to spend the weekend with it.

everything i had seen and heard about this film didn't even begin to do it justice.

at the grimy heart of this near-corporeal experience was Gunnar Hansen as Leatherface in a performance both subtle and visceral. monstrous and childlike, abused and abuser, determined and unwieldy, Hansen created a character that has yet to be rivaled or eclipsed in the genre. yet underneath the human jerky mandible was a soft spoken, pleasant natured man with the soul of a great author, more in his element at a library than a slaughterhouse.

i got nothing else. for more watch the movie  or read Hansen's fine account Chainsaw Confidential

If we’re gonna try to get some young kids with us it would be a lot easier,” said 38-year-old Fogle, married father of two, in the tapes. “I had a little boy. It was amazing. It just felt so good. I mean, it felt — it felt so good.”

Florida man reaches inside woman and disembowels her for uttering ex’s name during sex

Neighbors told officers that loud noise could be heard coming from the home for several hours.
During initial questioning, Lopez claimed that the two were having rough sex when Nemeth went into the bathroom, vomited and then died.
Lopez later admitted that he had become a “monster” when Nemeth twice uttered her ex-husband’s name during sex. He said that he had inserted a beer bottle and a curling iron in Nemeth’s vagina and anus. Lopez suggested that she had been too intoxicated to resist, according to WFOR.
He said that he then inserted both fists, before putting his arm in her up the elbow and ripping out intestinal matter. Lopez told authorities that he had a cigarette after disemboweling Nemeth, and after he finished it she had stopped breathing.

We Are The Sprocket Holes vol. 221

so much of what i look for in horror films can be traced back to my first viewings of films by Wes Craven. from Last House on the Left through People Under The Stairs, he approached subject matter he referred to as "reliably upsetting" and made it something so much more singular and layered, imbuing it with raw staying power that never dulls from repeated viewings or watered down cash grabbing retreads. from Krug Stillo to Papa Jupiter & his baby boys to Mommy & Daddy to the Count Dracula of the MTV Generation Freddy Krueger, Craven took what in the hands of your typical middle-of-the-dirt-road non-auteur schlocker would've been jute-box standard one-dimensional slasheroids and breathed color, dimension, allegory, and symbolism into their personas and acts, rising above the frequently reductive milieu of his incidental peers. even his misfires (My Soul To Take, Hills Have Eyes Part 2) have enough bizarre energy and unique ideas to hold the viewer's attentions.

truly the end of an era.

“Retribution is a valid societal interest,” Mr. Cox said on a recent afternoon, in a manner as calm and considered as the hypothetical he would propose was macabre. “What kind of society would say that it’s O.K. to kill babies and eat them, and in fact we can have parties where we kill them and eat them, and you’re not going to forfeit your life for that? If you’ve gotten to that point, you’re no longer a society.”

For nearly thirty years, a phantom haunted the woods of Central Maine. Unseen and unknown, he lived in secret, creeping into homes in the dead of night and surviving on what he could steal. To the spooked locals, he became a legend—or maybe a myth. They wondered how he could possibly be real. Until one day last year, the hermit came out of the forest

Logic always goes out the window during these periods of finger-pointing, as we struggle to explain the monsters among us. Again and again, we ask a question that is by and large unanswerable: How can we prevent these kinds of things from happening? Of course, the only honest answer is, we can’t. Can you name one single negative human trait that has ever been bred or taught out of existence in human history? Just one. Of course you can’t. There will always be people who are violent, angry, vengeful, psychotic, bitter, envious, and racist.
