RL on Kings of Horror 4-5-16

I admit that I have a definite soft-spot towards retro throwback movies. Wet Hot American Summer, House of the Devil, Dazed and Confused – I love them all. But despite my acknowledged proclivity towards nostalgic films, I can fully confirm that Rabid Love is certifiably great.

RL on Nightmare News Network 3-30-16

If I had to pick my favorite decade for horror, it would have to be the 80s.  Sure, the 80s had some horrible movies like any other decade, but it also had some of horror’s most memorable characters, one-liners, and practical effects.

Rabid Love is one of those movies I had never heard of, but stumbled upon while searching for horror movies on Amazon Prime. It was a weird movie. I’m not really sure if anything other than the word “weird” could describe this one. Perhaps the word “trippy”…

RL on We Shall be Monsters 10-12-14

Not that I need an excuse to watch Horror movies, but it’s October and, to me, that means Horror All the Time. Movies, books, and other, uh, horror things. In the past I used to watch a Horror movie a day all through October. Unfortunately (fortunately?) I don’t have the time to do that anymore so I watch them when I can. Which means the weekends. And this weekend I watched movies aplenty.

The 1950s and 1960s, drive-ins began to spread like wildfire, increasing to more than 4,000 locations. The new sites may have begun as a venue to watch films, but interestingly, the main films that were shown were mostly considered to be B films. Patrons enjoyed them regardless and remained enthralled with what they saw – so much so that the drive-in became a part of American culture where people came together to socialize with each other. It was an experience all of its own making and is today is considered an important part of Americana.


Today there are fewer than 400 drive-ins are currently in operation across the United States.


A movie watched under the stars and while breathing in the fresh air. Audience members could even get out of the car to stretch their legs and still hear and see the movie. The environment provided much more freedom than an indoor theater, and people appreciated the intermissions. It was a magical experience and the memory of childhood drive-ins still linger in many peoples memories.


In an attempted to re-ignite that drive-in passion, Polyscope Media Group LLC. in conjunction with The B Movie Celebration and Avery Battles, are announcing the launch of the 2013 B Movie Road Tour.


The Road tour heads off the first week of July and will initially feature the following line–up


“A Boy And His Dog” – The Classic 1975 black post-apocalyptic comedy from the fertile mind of Harlan Ellison and directed by L.Q. Jones .


“Embedded” – New release, A news reporter and his cameraman embed themselves with a group of hunters before all goes awry, only to find themselves as the hunted. Directed by Michael Bafaro.


“The Giant Spider” – New release, Christopher R. Mihm’s homage to 1950′s creature features.


“Gila!” – New release, The Jim Wynorski remake of the 1959 classic “The Giant Gila Monster”.


“The Lost Empire” – 30th Anniversary tour. In a land in a distant past, three beautiful women, members of a lost tribe, battle a madman with diabolical plans to destroy their “Lost Empire.” Directed by Jim Wynorski.


“Nightbeasts” – New release, A father and son on a weekend hunting trip encounter supernatural horror in the woods. Ably directed by Wes Sullivan and stars Zach Galligan(Gremlins).


“Rabid Love” – New release, Paul J. Porter's ode to the classic horror films of the 1980s, not to be missed!




“Resurrection” – New release, Genetically modified foo begins to slowly turn the population of a small MidWest town mad. Directed by Jeff Burr.


With this lineup, the organizers of the B Movie Road Tour hope to help audiences nation wide re-discover their passion for the B Movie/Drive-in movie experience. As of the date of this release 132 theaters have committed to participating in this years tour including drive-in theaters. And by the way June 6th, 2013 is the 80th Anniversary of the Drive-In Movie Theatre.

Here is the teaser trailer to an 80's inspired horror film, RABID LOVE. The film looks really good, the way it was shot, the atmosphere seems there and the acting seems better than the normal indie film.

According to the films website they ion, so hopefully we will get a are in post product new trailer soon (the post trailer is over a year old).

Little Hollywood on the Prairie


“A MOVIE IS BEING MADE IN OUR TOWN?!!” was heard a lot this summer in our community. I found it fascinating that any movie would be filmed in our tiny, little town. But with volunteer work, cooperation and organization from the community and hard work from the cast and crew, the Rabid Love movie was completed like other projects our community has undertaken.

Soon it will be "Lights, Camera, Action" for the small town of Hanston in Hodgeman County.

An independent film crew will be in the area filming "Rabid Love," a classic horror movie set in 1984.  Why Hanston?  Filmmaker Paul Porter grew up in Iola and has fond memories if visiting his grandmother in Hanston.


"I was thinking about the film, and we'd made tentative plans to film in New Mexico," Porter said in a phone interview last week. "But I kept thinking about my grandma's house in Hanston and wondering if we could shoot the whole film around there. So I got on Google Street View and looked around various locations — and it looked like it would work."

RL on ThreeIfBySpace 'Classic Horror gets it's Teeth Back' 3-20-12

One thing that can be said about the horror movies of the 80′s is that they scared the crap out of you right? Some still do to this day. Unlike today’s gore-fest style films, the horror movies of the 80′s focused on the tension more then the blood and it kept you on the edge of your seat to the point of wanting to scream even though nothing had happen on the screen. And right at that moment when you let your guard down, they scare you and you jump out of your seat.

Rabid Love is set in the early 1980′s; it pays homage to the wildly successful horror films of that era such as ‘An American Werewolf in London’, ‘The Howling’, ‘Grizzly’, ‘Friday the 13th’, ‘Evil Dead’, and countless others. It builds on the tried and true plot of young people in the woods and includes all the critical elements that fans of the genre expect.
