Hello, and welcome to the historical first Flesh Eating Blog post!

Tomorrow, B-movie filmmaker extraordinaire Charles Band and his spectacular horror Roadshow will be in Oklahoma City, and I will be in attendance.

Now for the unfortunate few who are unfamiliar with Charles Band, allow me to share with you the joy that is a Full Moon Feature, by shedding some light on some of my favorite films they’ve produced.

1. The Gingerdead Man
The GingerDEAD Man

With the legendary Gary Busey playing a homicidal gingerbread man, this film begins on a one way track to awesome. It reminds us that Mr. Busey is NOT the “Pilsbury Fuckin’ Doughboy,” and serves up lots of gut-wrenching kills and, dare I say it, delicious one-liners.

Its success has warranted a sequal that is due out soon. You can view the trailer HERE.

2. Doll Graveyard

Possessed dolls, including a viking, and an african tribesman, attack some teenagers during a houseparty. ‘Nuff said.

3. Decadent Evil

A horny homonculus (a part human/part reptile creature) is imprisoned in a birdcage by a vengeful former lover who is bidding to become the world’s most powerful vampire while being hunted by vampire slaying midget. Once again, ‘Nuff said.

4. Re-Animator

Yes, I know, its technically not a Fool Moon Feature, however, it was produced and distributed by Mr. Band’s former company Empire Pictures which disbanded in 1989. Therefore, I’m including it.

Re-Animator is by far one of my favorite horror flicks of all time. Its new twist on the zombie subgenre and over the top gore was, and still is, brilliant. Not to mention the outstanding performance by Jeffrey Combs as Herbert West.

And there you have it.  A very short list of why you should be excited for me as I prepare to attend this horror extravaganza. Some other notable mentions that I didn’t include on the list are Puppet Master (probably the most well known and fan favorite), Dollman, and Evil Bong.

I shall return tomorrow with a report of my experience.
