Frankenstein Created Bikers

By Ben Bussey It was all the way back in June 2012 that we first reported on Frankenstein Created Bikers, director James Bickert’s follow-up to his censor-bothering neo-grindhouse breakthrough Dear God No!

By Keri O’Shea It’s comparatively rare these days that a horror movie character crosses the divide into real fandom of their own, but Wolf Creek’s Mick Taylor is one of them – which is funny, considering the way he handles his on-screen ‘guests’, but there we go – there’s just something about the guy that […]
