Monsters, Freaks and Deadites oh my...
We all here at Rotting Flesh Radio love monsters, freaks, and depending on how much we have had to drink, very ugly hominoids. Why do we love to love such horrific and monstrous people, places, and things? Perhaps it is our attraction as a species to forbidden and “wrong” things such as fast food, infidelity, and good taste. Maybe it’s some subconscious need to experience the synapses of fear where pleasure is derived from circumstances manifesting the wetting of ones pants or finally appreciating your otherwise worthless life when faced with its ending. I am no psychologist, sociologist, or any other “let me tell you what I think because I got a degree” ologist, so what do I know.
What remains to be seen is that we love all things grotesque and freakish. That is the foundation of our perpetuation of the horror genre in total. We love the beast as much as beauty. Some of us cannot even differentiate between the two as illustrated by those pictures in the Sunday newspapers showing just who got married. Some old dead guy once said that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. This is true. One mans trash is another mans treasure. One only has to look at the entertainment industry as a whole for evidence of that encouraging fact. Insert any modern television sitcom, best selling chain store novel, or Britney Spears for example. No wait, is that last one trash or treasure? I guess that depends on what you wish to do with her. I digress.
The horror genre and our love of the monstrous in the existential are about the fear it inspires in us within our tripartite natures of mind, body, and spirit. Admit it or not most of us get off when we get scared or disgusted. We love monsters. Who wants to see a horror film where the “monster” is naught but some scantly clad fleshly long haired curvy model who…hey wait a minute! Well maybe we love deformities only some of the time. What am I getting at you may ask? Well I am getting at the fact that you know you want more freaks and monsters then can be provided by simply watching them on DVD, hanging out at the local mall, or taking the time and pain to develop them via drug induced pregnancies and inbreeding. Well fear not. There is no need to waste any more energy worrying about how or where to get “real” looking monsters. I shall pave the way without good intentions for you.
We have all seen the latex and foam monsters and atrocities that are available either online or during the Halloween season. It is through with these purchases that we attempt to satiate our need to surround ourselves with foul frightening creatures that are not our in-laws, ex’s, or current partners. The purchasing of props is one way we can safely experience the aesthetics of the grotesque and still be safe. The downside to this is that they often are not authentic looking enough. We can tell they are latex and foam. Well there is a company that may be able to assist you in manifesting an authentic disgusting factor for your life.
