"Of the Month" October ’07

Link of the Month:
Nad Shot
A fascinating project: this website collects scans of any instance of a comic book panel where a character gets struck in the testicles. Quite horrifying if you are a guy. Probably NSFW.

DVD of the Month:
The Devil’s Rejects
Mr. Zombie’s follow-up and sequel to House of 1000 Corpses is a much more focused, distilled, and intense film than its predecessor. It is an incredible homage to 70s explotation-style horror, and is seriously disturbing. Highly recommended.

Album of the Month:
Poe: Haunted
A fascinating piece of a multi-media ensemble, Haunted is the companion piece to Poe’s brother’s landmark horror novel, House of Leaves (which I must confess to not having yet read, or else it would probably be included in this "of the month" set as well). It’s a damned catchy and subtly unsettling/creepy album.
