We decided to keep our review of ‘Lords of Salem’ brief although it could have been much longer because like all of the preceding Zombie films there’s always surprises and something for the viewer to discover. We appreciated the movie, coming from somewhat of a Pagan background, but can see how it might upset some people with it’s stereotypes and references to black magic.
The film plays as Zombie’s Magnum Opus, the movie his other films have led up to and what he’s always wanted to make. There will be some people who love it and others who may feel disappointed. What you won’t find is a lot of blood and guts or cheap jump-scares, but you will find images that will stay in your head. Continue reading
Evil Twin Studios will be bringing the most terrifying haunt of this Halloween season (Theatre of Terror) to South Pasadena’s Fremont Centre Theatre in support of the South Pasadena Art Council (SPARK). Like it’s neighbor, Old Town Haunt in Pasadena, this haunted house is reported to be located in a place that is truly haunted. The building was once a mortuary and theatrical plays are presented in a small theater where family members once gathered to view their deceased. We’ll definitely be adding this to our list or haunts to visit this year.

Linda Vista, the hospital in Boyle Heights that was featured on Ghost Adventures has hosted numerous television and film shoots and now filmmaker Francis Xavier is giving us a twenty minute preview of his upcoming documentary film ‘The Legend of Linda Vista’ which is about the old hospital originally built in 1903 as the Santa Fe Pacific Railroad Hospital (changing it’s name to Linda Vista in the late 1930’s). The hospital closed in 1991 and has been used for filming (mostly horror films) and is now being converted into senior living.
From the press release:
In 2010 a team of filmmakers filming a scene of their serial killer/cannibal feature Poe experienced something beyond comprehension. Xavier, the film’s writer and director, along with producer Michael Kureth and co-producer Jo Ann Smith, witnessed something while filming in the vacant hospital that would change their lives forever. To celebrate (Edgar Allan) Poe’s birthday on January 19th, 2013, at the stroke of midnight, the filmmakers, along with five others, were locked in the Linda Vista Hospital to embark on their own personal journey in order to find the truth of what really lies behind its doors.
