Daeg Faerch: All Grown Up & Making Some Noise

Child actors, they’re cute, sometimes funny and in the horror industry, the creepiest presence on the screen, but sadly, many of these actors burn out before making a name as an adult in the entertainment industry. In 2007, Rob Zombie made the bold decision to create his own adaption of John Carpenter’s 1978 classic Halloween, and in his vision we got a glimpse into the tortured adolescent life of Michael Myers. Portraying the disturbed child version of Myers was a 12-year-old actor named Daeg Faerch. Faerch is known for his blonde hair, beautiful blue eyes and all around cherub appearance (which helped give his portrayal of young Myers more mystic); now 24-years-old, he is making waves of a new kind, sound waves.

The now all-grown-up Faerch is taking Instagram by storm with clips of his original, unique hip-hop sound. Now known as Great Daeg, his music can be found on popular streaming apps like Spotify and Apple music as well as his YouTube channel (here) . Faerch released his lastest video VLAD featuring Vokillz a week ago (watch below).

Show Daeg some love and show an artist that hard work and creativity are still very much appreciated. Check out his YouTube channel (linked above) and give him a follow on his social accounts:

Product Review: Horney Devil’s Devilicious Body Butter “Sugar Rush”

Horney Devil Beard Co. is a company out of Wilmington, NC that is veteran run and is best known for their quality, handcrafted beard care products, but they now offer a little something for the ladies; Devilicious Body Butters.

I have recently tried their Devilicious Body Butter in Sugar Rush, and have fallen in love. Body butters are a hard product to master, many leave a greasy feel to the skin or smell nothing like it did in the container once it is applied to the skin, but this one is perfect; it left my skin feeling soft and looking moisturized without making me feel like I took a bath in Crisco, and the smell stayed incredible.

The site describes the scent as being “warm vanilla sugar”, it does have a very sweet vanilla smell, and the smell only gets better the longer it is on. When it is first applied, it smells like a better version of Bath & Body Works vanilla brown sugar (with a better price tag too), but the longer it is on, especially if your body is warm, it starts to smell like fresh baked chocolate chip cookies.

The price to product size and quality is fantastic. The body butters are $12.50 for a 4 oz jar; which for anyone that regularly buys or looks into quality body products is a great deal for an all natural body butter that actually does what it is supposed to do. The jar is pretty “user friendly” too; I have encountered many products that are put in containers that do not mesh with the consistency and use of its contents. The opening of the jar for the Devilicious Body Butter is wide making it easier to access the product inside, and the consistency is perfect (like a slightly thicker lip balm).

Sugar Rush is not the only scent that they offer; you can also pick up Eternal Bliss (“A pretty and glamorous scent with top notes of passion fruit, juicy citrus and middle notes of fresh orange flower and sugary vanilla”).

If you would like to try Sugar Rush or any of their other incredible products, visit horneydevilapothecary.com.

On a side note about the company itself and the incredible people that run it, their customer service is fantastic, if there is a hangup in your order or you simply just have a question, they will go above and beyond to make sure you are satisfied.

All-Star Horror/Sci-Fi Cast Team Up for ‘Terror Tales’

It’s been a while since the release of the Creepshow films, but there is a new horrifying collection of stories headed our way that feature an all-star cast made up of names from Friday the 13th, Maniac Cop 1&2, George Romero’s The Crazies, Wes Craven’s The People Under the Stairs, Sleepaway Camp, Critters 2 and more. This cast comes together to give us ‘Terror Tales‘ from writer-director Jimmy Lee Combs.

When Michael wakes up he is horrified to find that he is riding shotgun with a psychopath (Christopher Showerman, Supergirl) who reveals to him that his wife and daughter are held captive in the attached cargo trailer. The trailer is rigged to release a deadly toxin when triggered by a switch in the car. Thinking of his family’s safety, he cooperates with everything the psychotic driver asks him to do even if it means breaking the law.

During this bizarre ride, the driver subjects Michael to three horrific tales of the macabre including a demon that takes a mother (Lynn Lowry, Shivers) on a journey of self-discovery and reveals to her the horrifying truth behind her son’s suicide. The next tale transpires in the ’80s where a Detective is hot on the trail of a serial killer known as The Sledgehammer (Jonathan Tiersten, Sleepaway Camp) who is terrorizing a video store owner and his wife. In the final tale, an evil deity (Yan Birch, Wes Craven’s The People Under the Stairs) is using the human body as a host to possess its victims. When the deity destroys one victim it jumps to another causing an epidemic of possessions being reported.

With a burning desire for the truth behind his abduction and the safety of his family, will Michael have the will to survive the madness? Your sanity will be tried and tested in Terror Tales.

The film also stars Laurene Landon (Maniac Cop), Jennifer Runyon (Ghostbusters), Ari Lehman (Friday the 13th), Ashley Park (Rosewood), Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp) and Helen Udy (The Dead Zone). 

Terror Tales comes to VOD on January 8th from High Octane Pictures.

Movie Review: ‘Ugly Sweater Party’

The holiday season is upon us which means lovable reindeer cartoons and movies about a green guy that hates Christmas, but if you’re more into comedy, gore and a splash of possession with your festivities, ‘Ugly Sweater Party‘ may be for you.

What is ‘Ugly Sweater Party’?

Ugly Sweater Party is about two friends that are invited to an, as the title suggests, ugly sweater party, and things go a bit awry when they discover that the party is being held at an unusual place and one of them may or may not end up with a mildly possessed sweater. 

The film was written and directed by Aaron Mento and stars a fantastic group of actors. The cast includes Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp), Sean Whalen (The People Under the Stairs), Lara Jean ( Till Human Voices Wake Us), Hunter Johnson (From Jennifer), Charles Chudabala (Irrational Fear), Brad Potts (Puppet Master X: Axis Rising) and Marv Blauvelt (Snake with a Human Tail).

Review

Ugly Sweater Party is the perfect campy, holiday horror; it is refreshing to see a film that doesn’t go with the obvious ominous presence for this time of the year, Krampus. 

If you’re expecting a splatter show and to be completely terrified, this film is not for you. The best way to describe it would be a hint of Sleepaway Camp (minus the girl with a penis),  National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation andJay and Silent Bob meet a possession movie with ugly sweaters, but in a perfectly blended, hilarious way. 


I’m going to have to fully recommend Ugly Sweater Party. It’s one of those movies that is so cheesy it’s actually amazing. Think traditional 80s camp comedy, amp that up and throw in lasers and an evil spirit. The film was very well written and acted out perfectly by the stellar cast. Felissa Rose and her horny, underappreciated housewife character stole the show; every time she was on screen, laughs were guaranteed. Believe is or not, the always sweet Sean Whalen makes a pretty great evil spirit, and the rest of the cast did an incredible job portraying the story and lending just the right amount of camp.  I for one would love a sequel next holiday season.

You can watch ‘Ugly Sweater Party‘ for yourself via Amazon Prime Video

Product Review: Voodoo Doll Shop “Black No 1 Perfume Oil”

Finding the perfect scent is difficult, and usually pretty expensive, especially if you have “unique taste”. Thanks to a creative, spooky girl named Cassie and her Etsy store Voodoo Doll Shop, you can smell like Halloween without breaking the bank. 

I recently purchased the Type O Negative inspired perfume oil rollerball “Black No 1”  just to see how closely the scent she created came to what the song describes, she nailed it. 

As described in the product description, this perfume oil has notes of Absinthe, smoke and cinnamon.  When I applied it to my wrist, the first scent I noticed was spicy, a lot like cloves (clove cigarettes perhaps), but the scent changed quickly. While keeping a touch of the clove/cinnamon spice scent, notes of smokiness and fall came in. The longer I had it on, the more the scent changed, and with every change came a new, very pleasant, almost addictive scent.

This oil embodies Black No 1 to say the very least. Not only is the scent witchy and reminiscent of fall/Halloween, it is extremely long-lasting. Ia applied this oil to my wrists around noon and could still smell it around 9pm.  Another plus to this product, I have extremely sensitive skin, and a lot of times even expensive perfumes can cause irritation and redness, but this does not.

I would expect such an intoxicating, long-lasting perfume oil to cost much more than it does; the rollerball comes in at just $9.75. There are other forms of this scent and many others available in the shop. 

If you are interested in this bewitching scent or want to check out the other amazing products and want to support small business, check out Voodoo Doll Shop

*Disclaimer: perfume oils smell differently on almost everyone, so you may experience the scents differently than I did. Note that this does not reflect on the product or the quality of the ingredients, but the chemistry of your body.*

Deadly Legacy: Re-opening the 4-Decade-Old Gacy Murder Case

Serial Killers have been the fascination of many people around the world, inspiring countless cinematic characters that haunt our nightmares and in a way have become pop culture icons. One of America’s most notorious serial killers may have committed his crimes four decades ago, but there is still work to be done in the case of John Wayne Gacy.

The bustling city of Chicago is no stranger to crime, but from January 3, 1972 to December 11, 1978 it experienced one of its most terrifying, gruesome crimes it would ever be home to. Father of two and part time clown, John Wayne Gacy  murdered 33 young men (25 of them have been positively identified) in a span of just six years. After the discovery of his crimes and his arrest on December 21, 1978, he would be labeled the Killer Clown. 

Gacy would be found guilty of 1 count of sodomy, 33 counts of murder, 1 count of sexual assault and 1 count of indecent liberties with a child on March 12, 1980. The following day on March 13, 1980 he would be sentenced to 21 consecutive life sentences and death. 

He was put to death by means of lethal injection at the Stateville Correctional Center in Crest Hill, Illinois on May 10, 1994 at the age of 52.

Now, 40 years after the grizzly discovery, the case will be re-opened in an attempt to put a face and a name to the 8 unidentified victims. The case was originally re-energized in 2011 when the Cook County Police Department decided to reopen the case in the hopes that new DNA technology would help identify the 8 remaining victims. 

A new three-part series titled Deadly Legacy will follow Detective Sergeant Jason Moran, a one-man cold case unit out of Cook County, Illinois, as he revisits the case. 

In the series, Detective Sergeant Moran will look at missing persons cases from the area and time frame of the Gacy murders as well as revisit old evidence and interview family and friends of the missing young men as well as investigators that were originally tasked with the investigation. 

Will the eight John Does be identified, find out when Deadly Legacy premiers Sundays beginning December 9th at 10/9c on Investigation Discovery.
