Full Moon Tattoo And Horror Festival


Hey guys and ghouls! Two weekends ago, I jumped back into the convention scene.  You guys missed a hell of a show if you were not at this convention! Full Moon Tattoo and Horror Festival  was held at Music City Center on May 8th, 9th, and 10th in beautiful downtown Nashville. The new convention center allowed for  there to be a ton of space and some new vendors and guests.  The amazing poster for this year’s festivities was done by the talented Joel Robinson and features the beautiful Stacey Dixon.




Some of the guests included Tony Todd, PJ SolesRobert Mukes, Santiago Cirilo, Roddy Piper and one of my faves, John Dugan. I came with a few actors in mind that I wanted autographs from, the first being Sean Patrick Flanery  from the Boondock Saints fame. Of course he’s also appeared in many other films such as “Powder”, “The Dead Zone”, “SAW3D”, and “Suicide Kings”. I did take a few minutes to talk to him about the 3rd Boondock Saints movie, which has been confirmed. Sean Patrick says that he is working hard with Troy Duffy writing the third movie and they are looking to begin filming in August.



Next on my list was another Boondock Saints veteran, Brian Mahoney. This was Brian’s first time at Full Moon and only his second convention, so you can imagine that he earned a spot on my list to add to my Boondock Saints collection. Brian has also recently starred in Furious Seven and other past films include American Reunion., Jarhead, and The Pitcher. Brian was extremely happy to be there and chatted about his role in the new Boondock Saints movie, with Sean Patrick and Troy promising a lot of great scenes for Detective Duffy.




In conclusion, I would have to say that Full Moon Tattoo and Horror Festival was a success. Wookie and I had an amazing time hanging out with the celebrities and vendors. We were able to score several great movies from our friend, DVD Bob of Cult Fiction Underground and also stopped by the Evil Pumpkins table to see Jeano and Tanya. Later that night, we headed out to The East Room in Nashville to attend the Cult Fiction Underground Fundraiser and help DVD Bob raise money to open Cult Fiction Underground’s new location. It was an amazing night of comedy, music and burlesque. If you were unable to attend, you can still donate here to help open the doors.

Vape Review – GWAR Flavors


Hey guys and ghouls! Waaay back in October, I decided that it was time to make a change for the better in my life. So I kicked cigarettes and began to vape. I’m not here to preach to you that vaping is better or anything like that. I am, however, going to tell you about some awesome flavors that I encounter. Before I begin this first review though, I want to take some time out to give a HUGE thanks to Mt Baker Vapor for taking me on as an official e-juice reviewer! I hope I can do you guys justice!


Onto the review! So for my first review, I had to share the awesomeness with you guys! Mt Baker has an amazing line of GWAR juice that I knew would be amazing. I chose to get the Jizmogoblin, Bloodbath, and German Chocolate Beefcake to begin and my oh my, I was NOT disappointed. For those curious, the GWAR flavors come in a standard 50pg/50vg but you are able to choose your level of nicotine. Since I’m dripping, I chose to go with a 3mg level. For those wondering about my setup, I am currently using a copper Stingray with a Mutilator RDA. If you are using these flavors in a glass tank, I highly recommend that you get the uncolored flavors, as the coloring can stain your glass.




I’ll first begin with Bloodbath and all it’s bloody glory. The Mt Baker website describes it as “A powerful tropical fruit blend specially designed to satisfy the bloodlust of every scumdog in the universe.” I couldn’t have said it better myself. I’ve noticed that many tropical fruit flavors tend to be sometimes over-powering when it comes to vaping, but Bloodbath is the perfect blend and it has some nice clouds to it as well. I definitely give this one a two thumbs up. Next on my list is German Chocolate Beefcake…sounds interesting, right? It’s a beautiful blend of cake, coconut, chocolate, and caramel. I would have to say that this was my favorite juice to vape of the three that I chose. I’m also a bit of a desserts vaper myself, but there was something that was just damn special about this one. I’ve already went through half the bottle over the weekend because I just couldn’t put it down. Beefcake the Mighty made a hit with this recipe.



Last but not least is Jizmogoblin! This blazing blue flavor is a mixture of creamy blueberry, custard, and nut. Each bottle is specially harvested by Skullhedface herself. I enjoyed this flavor a lot and it was very delicious. I took it with me on a trip this weekend and wound up having some family members vape a ton of it while we were hanging out because they really liked it as well. If you’re interested in purchasing any of the flavors I have listed, feel free to click on the links I provided in this review and grab some! The GWAR flavors are currently priced at $10.99, so you can afford two or three!  I’ve got a ton more reviews to do for Mt Baker coming up that I am very excited to share with you all.


Oh the plans I have in store….



Well hello there! I bet you never thought you’d see my face again…


That’s right! It’s Nymphetamine Jade and I am back and better than ever! So what does a writer do when they have a lack of Internet for almost two years?  A boring, adult life. I did have a lot of exciting things happen in between, but I’m sure you guys aren’t interested in all of that. What I want this post to be about are the things that I have planned for my blog. Of course, I am going to continue with my movie and convention reviews and I am even looking to revive Historic Horrors. But one thing that I picked up out in the real world was vaping and I would  really like to begin a vape review. I’ve already began looking into a few lines I’m wanting to try, and man, I am excited about this!


I’m trying to gauge really what the interest would be in this. Do I have any fellow vapers out there? Is there a specific juice or mod you’d like to see me try?  Let me know in the comments below! For those of you interested in what I have been doing in the last couple of months, here’s a few pictures to catch you up to speed. Coming up this weekend is Full Moon Horror and Tattoo Festival in Nashville! If you might remember correctly, I attended Full Moon in Chattanooga a couple of years ago. I can’t wait to see some familiar faces and meet some new ones! You can also keep up with me on Instagram at: Nymphetamine Jade

In Memoriam: Jess Franco

Yesterday, the horror and exploitation communities suffered a great loss. Jess Franco is probably one of the most versatile directors and writers that I, personally, have written about. The man made almost every type genre of movie imaginable in his lifetime, his final work being Al Pereira vs the Alligator Women. It is unknown if the movie is finished or not though at the moment of his untimely death.

Franco was born in Madrid, Spain on May 12th, 1930. He was a Spanish film director, writer, cinematographer and actor whom got his big break on 1961 with the cult classic The Awful Dr. Orloff. He also gained American box office success with movies like Necronomicon ,Ninety-Nine Women, The Bloody Judge and Count Dracula. Despite not gaining commercial success, he directed over 100 films.

James also got the tag of being an adult film director due to the amount of nudity in his films. If he began to release X-rated films, his career would go down commercially until he returned back into low-budget horror flicks. In 2004, he released an autobiography entitled Memorias del tío Jess. 

Franco passed away April 2nd, 2013, a little over a year after his wife, Lina Romay, passed away.of cancer. He was 82 years old, and the cause of death is unknown at this time. His passing was announced on his Facebook page by Kike Mesa, who directed 2007’s Jess Franco: Way of Life.

Evil Dead 2013: A Surprising Review

Okay, so before we get started, I should warn you. I came into the idea of remaking “The Evil Dead” with an absolute hatred for this movie from the get go. I despise…..no, really…..despise remakes. Even though most movies are a remake in some shape form or fashion, I usually cannot stand them.

This movie changed my mind. 

Now with the dramatic effects over with, I will continue. When I got the message from a friend today with a post about getting pre-screening passes for “Evil Dead” tonight, I was hesitant at first. But, I thought that if by any means I could convince you into saving your money for the movies, that I would. So I went ahead and called up my sister to see if she wanted to go. I had taken her to see “Warm Bodies” with me a few months back and she seemed to like it. So I ordered our tickets, headed out to see her, and we ventured into Nashville to check it out. We get into the theater and ordered at the concessions, headed to the screen, and stopped at the table to drop off our phones. I usually will get seats towards the middle back of the movie, but I wanted to watch her jump and squirm so we moved 4 rows from the front of the screen. We settled in, let the lights dim, and got prepared for whatever lay ahead.

The movie begins with five friends staying in a cabin out in the middle of nowhere. Some crazy things begin to happen, and they eventually search the cabin until finding a book who’s cover resembles that of sewn together skin. One of them becomes curious about it, opens it, and then reads from it, setting in motion for more things to happen. Demons come out and posses them all one by one until the last remaining person breaks the curse and sends the demon back to hell. Sounds pretty familiar, right?

I’m very happy to report that Evil Dead sticks very close to the original movie, with some major changes. I really want to keep this as spoiler free as possible, but one of the already-obvious ones is that rather than a male lead character being the hero…it is a female as our heroine in this revamp. But there is definitely one thing that I love about this movie. My slasher-loving side was very happy throughout this movie. There is so much blood in the movie. If someone you know is very faint at the sight of blood, or squeamish throughout kill scenes…keep them at home.

I’ve really got to give props to Sam Rami and Bruce Campbell for this. It’s almost restored my faith in some directors doing remakes. I can say with confidence, if the rumor of an Evil Dead 2 by these guys is true, I would 100% be behind them. They’ve, in my opinion, made a truly astounding film that is pretty terrifying, bloody, and scary. It’s well worth the price of paying for a movie ticket. I actually encourage you to watch it in the movies! Also….stay until the end of the credits. You’ll be happy that you did.

How to horror up your Valentine’s Day

Once again, it’s Nymphetamine Jade here with some tips on how to make the most horrific Valentine’s Day ever. I know, I was once one of the many who had a grudge again Cupid for screwing me over one too many times. Didn’t help that my birthday was a week before the dreaded, Hallmark pushed holiday either.

But, if you and your horror loving honey actually do enjoy the celebration, here are a few ways that you can make the holiday something special. Of course, there’s the whole flowers, candy, teddy bear route, or you could buy a unique gift like these necklaces.

There are a few Valentine themed horror movies out there as well, such as “My Bloody Valentine” as well as it’s remake “My Bloody Valentine 3D“.

If you have a really awesome sweetheart, pal, or just want to scare the fuck out of some people, here are some cards you can start off by giving out. Either way you choose to celebrate, eat some damn chocolate!!


The Horror Homework interview : Danny Trejo

Not only was I only fortunate enough to meet Danny Trejo recently, but I was also able to sit down with him for a few moments and conduct a small interview as well. You can probably imagine how I felt when I asked for the interview and he suggested that I come and see him the next day. I acted professional in front of him of course, but once I rounded the corner to the elevators, the fan girl in me squealed and danced around.

The thing that I slowly realized when I got back to my hotel room is what kind of questions do you ask a guy who has starred in so many movies with so many people? After about an hour of research though, I come up with a ton of questions but only narrowed it down to these since I knew a lengthy interview would be impossible on such a busy day.

So without any further adieu, may I present my chat with Danny Trejo from Days Of The Dead Atlanta. The first in what will hopefully be a long line of interviews!

 Nymphetamine Jade: What made you decide to accept the role in “Runaway Train”?

Danny Trejo: It was an accident. I was offered to train Eric Roberts how to box and then from there they offered me to appear in the movie and I said “Yeah!” so that’s how it happened. 

 Nymphetamine Jade: How did you and Robert Rodriguez discover you were second cousins?

Danny Trejo: My uncle, Rudy Trejo, they came down from San Antonio to visit me and Uncle Rudy goes, “Hey, there’s Robert!” and we started talking and figured out we were second cousins.  

 Nymphetamine Jade: What has been one of your favorite films to work on?

 Danny Trejo: Oh man, “Machete” was. I would have loved “Machete” even if I wasn’t in it. You know, it’s just a great movie and now “Machete Kills”, it’s gonna be awesome. 

Nymphetamine Jade:  How was it working with Tom Savini, Fred Williamson, and Cheech Marin in “From Dusk Until Dawn”?

Danny Trejo: Man, it was a lot of fun, we had a blast on that set. Savini had long hair and I had long hair, and everybody kept saying “Man, you guys must have the same hair dresser.” (laughter) That was, like the standard thing.

“I love my job!”

Nymphetamine Jade: You have eight films completed or in post -production right now. Six films have already been announced and you are already filming “Chavez Cage of Glory” as well. What drives you to stay so busy?

Danny Trejo: I love my work, I love my job. 

Nymphetamine Jade: Why are most of your characters named after knives?

Danny Trejo: It’s Robert Rodriguez’s thing for my parole. My parole was no sharp objects in your possession. So Robert was just kinda giving the finger to the parole officer. 

 Nymphetamine Jade: What caused you to start a charity for pit bulls?

Danny Trejo: Man, I love dogs, I just dunno. They really get a bad rep because of their owners. They are some of the greatest dogs ever. What some people don’t realize is that our first American show dog was Petey, from “The Little Rascals” and he was a pit bull. Michael Vick, we got one of his dogs up at Villa Lobos. They have him up in San Francisco now and he is a pet dog now. They have him working with kids that have terminal cancer. 


Thanks for the interview, Mr. Trejo!

Cinema Wasteland

So as a typical forewarning, I must tell you that Cinema Wasteland is not your typical convention. I’ve been going to all of these conventions for over a year now and have always heard that. It wasn’t until I actually got to the hotel that I noticed how true it was. A lot of these conventions switch hotels and centers for various reasons, be that it needs more room to grow and expand to popularity or that the convention simply was not welcome back. Cinema Wasteland has been an exception to the rule, remaining in the same hotel/convention center for the last 22 shows. They don’t bring in your regular run of the mill celebrities and directors either, so if you’re hoping to meet someone like Norman Reedus or Jamie Lee Curtis, you’re out of luck. Instead, they aim for the more obscure and cult classic oriented guests.

I first heard about the convention through Master Yuck, way before I started writing for this site. After that, I started hearing about the convention at every one I would go to. So I talked to the boyfriend and we decided we would make the venture up for a night to check it out. We did make a pit stop to check out the haunted Ohio State Reformatory and man, it’s amazing. Sadly, they weren’t doing any tours and (shockingly) I’m not a fan of haunted houses so I’ll be hitting the place back up next year as I prepare for the next Cinema Wasteland.

Big thanks to the chick who pulled her car halfway into the gate so I could get this picture taken. Otherwise, all you’d have seen was a chain link fence behind me covering up this beautiful scenery. After that, we hopped back in the car and headed for Strongsville for Cinema Wasteland. After checking in and going up to the room, I headed downstairs to scope everything out and bumped into a few of my pals. Soon, it was time to go inside and get busy! We got a few items signed by people like Linnea Quigley, Michelle Bauer, and Fred Olen Ray. I also managed to get a couple of photos with Dyanne Thorne, best known for her role as Ilsa as “Ilsa, She-Wolf of the SS”.

After that, the party really began for me. Okay, okay….so I had a flask ready with me. I also already had some rum mixed in with my coke I had purchased earlier in the day. Still, the evening was early and everyone was drinking and having a good time. Even after the convention closed, the party still went on. I can’t tell you how many times I would walk down a hallway and be pulled into a room, offered drinks and grilled cheeses, and snapping pictures while the guy from Troma stands in front of me and moons the camera. Seriously, I was deemed one of the Troma crew for about 5 minutes while searching hotel rooms to give my buddy Harley from The TimO. and Harley Show his pizza.


Needless to say, I was bummed when I woke up the next morning and had to leave. I’m definitely planning an all weekender for the next Cinema Wasteland in April. You should definitely plan on attending one sometime soon! Here are a few more pictures that you should look at if you need some more convincing.

The ScareFest

Man oh man, have I been a busy bee these last 2 weeks. On September 29th, I attended my first ScareFest convention in Lexington, Kentucky. I wished I could have attended the whole weekend, but real life tends to get in the way at times. I still had an absolute BLAST there though and have a ton of memories and stories to tell you guys. 

So for Saturday, we all got dressed up and got ready to take the drive from Louisville. I was very gracious to my friends Lace and Matthew for allowing me to go with them, and for Michael, Ashley, and Muffins for letting me stay with them in between traveling. We all stepped out side and took some photos before hopping in the car and venturing to Lexington.

So we arrived in Lexington after an hour on the road, and went into the convention center. After getting the armbands, we walked through the grand entrance and into a very crowded room with vendors, celebrities, and attractions galore. ScareFest was incredibly busy, and we were constantly getting pictures taken of each person in the group. I got to see a lot of my friends including Atomic Cotton, R.A. Mihailoff, Dick Starr, and Skull 13. I did get to meet a lot of new friends here as well, including Cleve A. Hall, Aaron Goodwin. Later in the convention, I got an amazing opportunity to get my makeup professionally done by Beki Ingram, whom a lot of you might remember from SyFy’s “Face Off” season 2.

Anyways here’s some more photos! Next up, Cinema Wasteland! Ye haw!

Great Halloween Costumes for the whole family.

Full Moon Tattoo & Horror Convention – Chattanooga

Can I get a big “HELL YES!” now that convention season has started back up? I could almost hear that in my head, you guys are awesome. So now that all of the conventions are starting back up, we are gonna be talking about a con that is very near and dear to my heart. Twice a year, Lone Wolf Body Art unleashes Full Moon Tattoo and Horror Convention and lays it’s paws on Tennessee with so much awesomeness. This year, they had an exceptionally awesome lineup of guests, artists, vendors and tattoo shops at the Chattanooga Convention Center.

See that? It’s some badass artwork from Sam Flegal right there! There were tons of artists out there with Sam, including HorrorHomework fave Dick Starr. Full Moon Chattanooga boasted an incredible lineup of stars from movies such as P.J. Soles from Halloween, The Devil’s Rejects, Rock & Roll High School, and Carrie, “Diamond” Dallas Page from The Devil’s Rejects, and David Naughton from An American Werewolf In London. Most shows do a reunion of sorts for certain movies and Full Moon had an excellent choice with a Phantasm reunion. Don Coscarelli, the director of the series, was joined by actors Angus Scrimm, Michael Baldwin, and Reggie Banister for the convention. We also had the pleasure of our musical senses to be jolted by the sounds of Pontiac Blue, an awesome band who infused the perfect balance of blues and jazz together for an amazing combination.

So some of you might know this, but I also started working for Fleam & Boil’s House for Wayward Kooks about the same time that I started writing for here. At this convention, I was working behind the table for Argos T. Fleam with the lovely Evilyn Von Tessel whom you will see pictured in my numerous photos at the end of this. It was my first time working a table, and it was very interesting to do rather than being the normal convention spectator. I was definitely entertained though with a rotating “The Walking Dead” cast to the left of us, and one of my fave walkers from the series Rodney Hall on our right. My pal Dead Dick Hammer also dropped in and hung around a few tables minus Doreen and Doc since they were still burying the latest victims.

That’s Jeano in the background throwing up the horns for a photobomb. You guys might remember him from The Creeping Cruds interview I did earlier this year. He and his wife makes these incredible necklaces and sells them at the conventions and online through Evil Pumpkins. Here’s a pic of what I purchased from them in my getup from Saturday.

I had a blast this weekend, and I can’t wait until Full Moon Nashville next year to attend this convention again. Coming up, Cinema Wasteland as well as Nashville Horror and Comic Con! Can’t wait!
