His debut solo studio album, CMFT, was released on October 2, 2020, by Roadrunner Records.” — wikipedia.

Filmmaker Mike Shiff will be live on Down To Hell 8pm EST Thursday January 27th 2022 with Hellraiser Star (pinhead) Doug Bradley to talk horror, metal, and life. Mike Shiff’s documentary “The History of Horror and Metal” explores the originals and relationship between two genres that pair like a fine wine and cheese, horror and metal.

The Down To Hell Twitch show hosted by Doug Bradley has had some amazing guests in 2021 including Piggy D from Rob Zombie and Robert Englund who we all know as Freddy Krueger. Doug Bradley aka Pinhead and Steph Sciullo have been hosting the weekly show since the summer of 2021 featuring giveaways, horror influencers, musicians, actors and horror creators. Down To Hell never disappoints the discerning horror fan.

Director Mike Schiff

Mike was born and raised in The Bronx, NY. He has worked in film, video, and television production since the late 90’s, working at the Howard Stern Show for eight years and starting his own production company, M.A.S. Productions Inc. Mike has filmed and edited music videos for John Carpenter, Fozzy, and Charred Walls of the Damned. He also filmed John Russo’s latest feature, My Uncle John is a Zombie.

​Being a fan of both heavy metal and horror, Mike felt it was time to make a documentary exploring the reasons why the two genres go hand in hand. For The History of Metal and Horror, Mike also serves as producer, writer, director of photography, and editor. 

Mike Shiff reviews the history of heavy metal music and horror movies, and explores how the two genres have merged over time. Famous metal artists share their first introduction to the horror genre, while horror film icons discuss their connections, tastes and interests to metal artists.

    “The three years we’ve been online have been amazing! I’m so thankful for all of the fantastic people who are on Slasher every day, making it so much fun for all of us! It’s also great to see all the filmmakers turning us on to their movies, authors who keep us informed of their new releases, artists who share their work with us, musicians who keep us going with new tracks, and the vendors who help us build our collections. I might have created the app, but it’s the people on it who are the ones that make it awesome each and every day. We’re all in this together and it’s been great working alongside fantastic people and companies who feel the same way we do about horror! Slasher 4.0 is going to help us provide more support, resources, and opportunities for everyone in the genre.

    The Mutilator 2 Begins Production in 2022

    Featured Horror News Scary Movies and Series

    38 years after the release of the 1984 cult classic slasher film, The Mutilator, writer/director Buddy Cooper is bringing back the bloodbath with the long awaited sequel, Mutilator 2. Starring such horror icons as Terry Kiser (Friday the 13th Part VII, From a Whisper to a Scream) and Damian Maffei (The Strangers: Prey at Night, Haunt), as well as The Mutilator alumni Ruth Martinez and Bill Hitchcock, Mutilator 2 brings together modern horror and a taste of the 80’s fun that fans loved from the original.

    You know a film has reached cult status when Rotten Tomatoes scores it at 24% but the diehards like James O’s review really brings it all to the table.

    Apr 07, 2011 – James O – on Rotten Tomatoes

    From 1984 comes The Mutilator. The Mutilator is unique is a few ways that set it apart from all the other slasher movies: First, it actually has a GOOD title and end song. It’s not 80s punk rock; it has a kind of jazzy feel to it. I like how this one lulls you into a sense of security by having the first two murders being almost bloodless, and then…WHAM! Gore galore! This one is very gory, and there’s one kill that almost made me throw up (the kill with the gaffe). It’s a great slasher movie, and definitely worthy of your time.

    Rating: 5 out of 5.

    Alexander Taylor (Scream, Queen! My Nightmare On Elm StreetIsolation, Paramount Plus’s Unknown Dimension: The Story Of Paranormal ActivityArkansas, Eli Roth & Jason Blum’s Crypt TV) has signed on to score the upcoming sequel, from Bloody Disgusting’s article

    Taylor said in a statement, “I’m so honored and excited to be a part of The Mutilator franchise. One of the best parts of this is the fact that Buddy Cooper is back! It’s rare for a legacy film to have the original writer and director come back, so you know this is going to be special. Buddy and I already have some cool themes and wild ideas for the score.”

    Watch the Original 1984 Cult Classic Horror Film “The Mutilator” trailer on Youtube if you dare.

    “I had 4 copies of The Mutilator (including a heavily edited family friendly version!) and a promotional standee as a kid, so to be joining this sequel, working with Bud Cooper, some of the original returning cast, and jumping back in to raise some hell with Terry… it’s surreal. I am beyond excited.” – Damian Maffei

    Filming begins in 2022, so keep your eyes on The Mutilator movie Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/Big.Insane.Ed) and Instagram (@the_mutilator_shop) pages for updates.
