Green Inferno removed from Monster Fest line-up

Posted by on | Leave a Comment

Due to unforeseen circumstances, THE GREEN INFERNO has been removed from the Monster Fest 2014 schedule. Instead, the festival will bring local audiences US horror-comedy, ZOMBEAVERS. Ticketholders for THE GREEN INFERNO will be contacted by Cinema Nova staff and offered a refund, as well as a bonus ticket to another Monster Fest session of their choice (excluding opening and closing night events).

ZOMBEAVERS is an action packed and hilarious film about three college girls who go on a carefree vacation filled with drinking games and sexual exploration. Their frolicking fun comes to an abrupt end when they’re attacked by toxic-zombie-beavers.[…]

Farewell Uncle Chop-Chop

Most folk in inner-city Australiana have a Chopper Read story, and now the man is no longer with us, you’ll get to hear most of ‘em. Here’s mine:

I was a guest at the Melbourne Underground Film Festival in 2003, the year my film Lesbo-A-Go-Go screened. In addition I was roped into Emcee duties for the Opening and Closing Night ceremonies; MUFF Direktor Richard Wolstencroft, in his inimitable fashion, had made our old Uncle Chop-Chop head of the Jury.

Final night of the Festival, it was my duty to introduce Chopper to a packed Palace Cinema audience primarily of MUFF […]

How I Spent My Summer in Tokyo…

Posted by on | Leave a Comment

I know, I know… I’ve been negligent keeping up with my blog here at Monster Pictures. The thing is, this summer has been a crusher of a work season. It seems not a day goes by that I don’t get a call or an email asking me to write this or to join that production. Neil, our boss at Monster Pics, keeps telling me to do short order writing for the blog, but I’ve always been more into the epic entry variety.

Working on films in Japan has been one of the great joys in my life. Although the budgets […]

Hey Freakers, the weathers nice here in Murder City Adelaide so I thought I’d touch base with you all. Sun, birds singing, children laughing, everyone happy! Spring weather is shit when you’ve been trying to write a nasty, seedy movie of insanity and depravity, filthy, stench and blood. I must wait for the night to fall to retreat into my characters soiled brains and continue…

What the heck am I doing here?

Posted by on | 1 Comment

 Hi all you crazy ‘Monster Fiends’! My name is Sim and if you have made it this far down the rabbit hole, you must be about as stoked as I am to have a horror platform such as Monster to fuel your gory palate. Therefore, if I can be half as entertaining and informative as folks on here, I will have served my purpose well.

As a kid, I was never permitted to watch a lot of Television. That’s why I had to fake sleep. That way, I could get up later and switch the telly on when everyone went […]

Macabre Party Streamers

Children of the Corn Chips

Posted by on | Leave a Comment

Hello readers! My name is Anthony O’Connor and I am a writer.

Recently I had the joy/honour/terror of watching a screenplay I wrote get made into a movie. That movie was Redd Inc. (aka: Inhuman Resources for you Yanks and Canadians). I kept a semi-regular diary on the set of Redd Inc. Between setups I’d scribble stuff down. Most of it was illegible, sub-par, rambling and incoherent. Occasionally it was drawings of zombies with boners.

Over the next little while I’ll be bringing you the highlights of this hastily-scrawled journal, with pictures and video for the hard of thinking. […]

The cast of Lust of the Dead 2 & 3

As my first official blog entry (not counting the introductory one), I’d like to start things off with a film I was involved with somewhat reluctantly. So, why bring it up as the first entry? Because it’s fresh on my mind and the films I’m working on now are still in active production and I don’t feel like going through the odious process of clearing photos with actor/actress management just yet.

First a little backstory…

In the summer of 2011, I was contacted by Naoyuki Tomomatsu and asked to shoot […]
