Starring Rooney Mara, Daniel Craig and Christopher Plummer

Directed by David Fincher

Written by Steve Zaillian from the novel by Stieg Larsson

Columbia Pictures

First of all, macabre movie fans, yes, we do get to hear Karen O, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’s version of Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song,” in a stunning opening credits sequence that rivals anything Maurice Binder ever created for the early Bonds and makes me want to get in line to watch this film again.

That aside, there are many reasons for horror fans to want to see this film: David Fincher’s dark, edgy aesthetic is in full effect; Rooney Mara is a Goth goddess, more frail physically than Noomi Rapace, the original Lisbeth Salander, but still tough as nails; and Reznor and Ross’s score walks the line between eerie and ambient.

Pennsylvania-based horror rock band Motionless In White recently debuted the video for their new single “Immaculate Misconception” on FearNet. Directed by Twisted Sister singer Dee Snider’s son Cody Blue Snider, the clip features MIW singer Chris Motionless channeling his idol Marilyn Manson in a conceptual clip that sees him attacked by religious protestors and fighting back. Dee himself even shows up as a Roman soldier tasked with whipping Chris prior to his crucifixion.

Beloved punk-porn princess and entrepreneur Joanna Angel is set to release a XXX web-only Frankenstein parody on her website this, um, coming Monday. Go to on Halloween. For a preview teaser of Fuckenstein, which stars Joanna Angel with James Deen as Dr. Frankenstein and Spanish performer Ramon Nomar as Frankenstein, visit:

“Every year on we celebrate Halloween with a horror themed movie,” says Joanna in a statement. “Parodying Frankenstein was a lot of fun – and I have a new found fetish for having sex with scientific experiments and monsters.”

The SPACE Network’s new six-part documentary show Fanboy Confessional, which, not surprisingly, explores all aspects of fandom, delves into horror in next week’s episode. Producers turn their sorry sights on Toronto Zombie Walk founder (and Hamilton, ON resident) Thea Munster and Rue Morgue Magazine art director \”Ghoulish\” Gary Pullin. (Disclosure: I write for Rue Morgue and am friends with Gary.)

Today is 73rd birthday of Barbara Steele, star of such horror classics as Black Sunday, The Pit & the Pendulum, the original Piranha and Nightmare Castle. Those of you unfamiliar with Ms. Steele, start with Black Sunday (1960), her only collaboration with Italian director Mario Bava. Her dark beauty and irresistible sensuality have made her a favourite of horror fans for decades and inspired many acts of devotion, including this one by yours truly:

Combichrist's Andy LaPlegua

Is Combichrist’s Andy LaPlegua the new Trent Reznor? With the Nine Inch Nails mastermind busy scoring A-list Hollywood films (The Social Network) and making music with his (now pregnant) wife (How To Destroy Angels) instead of packing stadiums full of freaks and rivetheads, there’s a space in the underground marketplace for a charismatic and energetic performer like LaPlegua.

The DLB & Jovanka

The DLB has been a proud friend of Rue Morgue editor-in-chief Jovanka Vuckovic for several years, so we were saddened to hear about her departure from the magazine. That said, we were happier to hear about the impending birth of her own little bundle of evil and are excited to follow her future artistic endeavours. Here is an official statement from her Facebook page:
Dear Rue Morgue Readers,

After seven years as Editor of Rue Morgue Magazine, the time has come for me to move on. I worked very hard to make the magazine the best it could possibly be the entire time I was there and I’m proud of my contribution to it and the status I helped elevate it to. But a career in journalism has never been a goal of mine. It was an interesting detour, that’s for sure, but I have always been a writer and an artist and have had a strong desire to follow my instinct to create. I am excited to return to my creative roots and look forward to announcing my upcoming projects in film, television and print. I can’t wait to tell you about some of the exciting collaborations I have in the works as well.

In the meantime, I am currently focusing on my most creative and challenging endeavour to date: the birth of my first child, which is currently growing in my womb. Yes, you read that right, I’m pregnant! It’s an exciting and very happy time for my fiancee and I. We couldn’t be more thrilled.

That said, rest assured, I am not abandoning horror, I’m merely taking a break to refocus and return with a vengeance and do what I’ve longed to do since before I started at the magazine: contribute creatively to the genre I love so much.

If any of you want to keep in touch, I’ll be launching a new website soon, which will have updates on my creative projects as well as a blog where I’ll be posting about the body horrors of pregnancy. ;) I hope to see you reading it. You can find me at: (Coming Soon)
Obviously here at Facebook and

Feel free to drop me a line here or at my website and stay in touch. I’ve always loved to hear from the readers. You guys are the reason I kept going for so long. I wish I could have said goodbye in my editorial, but sometimes things don’t work out the way you’d like them to. I’m truly grateful for all the wonderful people I’ve met and the readers I’ve corresponded with on this journey. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: without you, there would be no Rue Morgue.

I hope to see you all on the other side.

Much love and respect,
Jovanka Vuckovic


Last Rites Tattoo Theatre presents its first ever Creep-In Day on Halloween!

Posted in Events, Halloween, News, Tattoos with tags , , , on October 28, 2009 by darklordbunnykins


Last Rites Tattoo Theatre presents its first ever Creep-In Day on Halloween!

Saturday, October 31st, 12pm-12am at Last Rites Tattoo Theatre, 511 W. 33rd Street, between 10th & 11th Avenues (3 blocks from Penn Station), 3rd floor, New York, NY 10001. 
Find more information at

(New York, NY) Last Rites Tattoo Theatre is celebrating the Halloween season by showing a return of support to all Last Rites friends, family and fans. With their first ever Creep-In Day, dedicated fans and collectors receive a rare opportunity to be tattooed spontaneously without an appointment at the infamous Last Rites Tattoo Theatre… and on Halloween to boot! Along with Paul Booth himself, the Last Rites family of masterful artists will take in the haunting energy of Halloween, Last Rites style, and produce stunning tattoo art on a first-come-first-serve basis! Paul will even be venturing out from his private lair and tattooing in the family crypt making the day an awesome “meet&greet” opportunity for Fans and Clients alike! In addition to this overdose of high energy freehand tattooing from 12 to 12, the day includes visual stimuli such as live painting sessions featuring Esao Andrews, Vincent Castiglia, Fred Harper, Dan Quintana, David Stoupakis, and Genevive Zacconi.  ArtFusion Experiment collaborative painting performances by notable Tattoo Artists such as Paul Acker, Goethe, Juan Selgado, Jesse Smith, and more! An ArtFusion canvas will be open for the public to paint as well! The Film Chapel will be rolling Paul’s personal Horror movie picks continuously day and night. And of course, costumes are welcome and encouraged! And last but not least, the day will end at 11:59pm followed by a traditional Last Rites “Kool-Aid” Toast to bring in the Witching Hour.

Please read on for special details…
Paul Booth and Crew will be following normal protocol used for conventions and touring. This means one-sitting freehand style work with an approx. 3 hour time limit on a piece. If you are looking to start a multiple sitting project such as a sleeve or backpiece, then this is not a day for such. Our best advice to you is to give our accomplished artists your theme and trust them with the artistic freedom to run with it for you. 3 hours can get a good sized piece done so don’t let the time issue concern you. We do this to be fair to everyone that desires Last Rites Art. We also suggest getting here earlier than opening time if you are really serious about getting work. The doors will open at 12 noon and anyone behaving overly aggressive, intoxicated or under the influence of drugs will not be tolerated. This event will be filmed for an upcoming Last Rites DVD so costumes are encouraged but not mandatory!

  • Meet and Greet the artists and fellow clients all day and night
  • Crazy Performers will be unearthing themselves throughout the day for everyone’s twisted amusement.
  • Food, Drink and visual stimuli all day long… No Cover! Costumes Welcome!

“We want to show our fans our true appreciation for their support, by allowing them the opportunity to avoid the waiting list… and get tattooed convention style. I have been spending quite a bit of time here at home focusing on my larger projects and I find myself occasionally missing the road. Now I can sort of go on tour without leaving home and get a good dose of that convention energy I have come to know so well. I have always liked the idea of bringing our fans together to meet each other as they have always shown a strong like-mindedness. This is why I want to make it a meet & greet day as well.”

~ Paul Booth ~
