A Slice of Fright – Official Soundtrack Release

Great music can push a mediocre short film into the realm of “really cool”. And a great soundtrack and push a good film into the “really awesome” territory.

As the 2nd full seasons of the horror anthology series, A Slice of Fright, comes to an end– and CinemaSlice reflects on the 20 short films we’ve produced for this series within the last 12 months– We wanted to shine the spotlight on the eery music that makes these films worth watching.

We’ve had the pleasure of working with numerous talented musicians to produce creepy original soundtrack compositions for each episode of A Slice of Fright. So without further ado, THANK YOU to all of the musicians featured on this free collection of original music:

  • Austin-Michael Riley
  • Marvin Maddicks, Jr
  • David Waldman
  • Echos of BC
  • Leland Leger

Say Shalom to Schlock Du Jour!

Hello, all! My name is ReelRat, or just simply “Rat”, and I’m thrilled to be the newest contributor to CINEMASLICE.

I will be your resident schlock and extreme horror expert, and I will provide your eyes with reviews of the sort you have likely never seen before in an all new column entitled “Schlock Du Jour!” I was asked to introduce myself to you all, so I asked myself, “What is the most ‘Rat’ way to do this?” And I came up with a solution…

See, last year I interviewed myself in some sorta self-servicing bullshit, with the hopes that it would fend off a midlife crisis as I turned 30. I figured I’d pry inward to find out if introspection was the best medicine. That interview went unpublished, but I have updated my answers and added a couple new questions so you may best get to know me. I offer that to you now in the hopes that you will accept me.

Love me

Rat on Rat:

To begin, let’s start at the end. By that I mean let’s talk about your sign-off. You end each review the same way. “Stay slime, and be rad at all times.” What exactly does that mean?

So, my sign-off is both a motto and an aesthetic. It’s basically like that famous line from Bill & Ted: “Be excellent to each other, and party on dudes!” It’s a beacon of positivity. Stay slime = stay cool. Radness goes beyond coolness in my definition as it encompasses much more, including an emphasis on kindness.

Why do you go by “Rat”

This actually goes back to the last question. Rat is a simplified version of the acronym for “rad at all times”. I’ve adopted that name within many circles as a reminder to be the embodiment of my motto. I want to make an impression, but also spread positivity. In addition, it’s a nice scummy, sleazy name. Across the internet you’ll find things authored by me under the names Rat, Reel Rat, Rat Ross, Elliot Ross, Elliot Ian Ross, and even Elliot “Reel Rat” Ross. I’ve been thinking of dropping the whole “Rat” moniker, but I don’t know yet.

Aww, but I like it! Your weekly column for The Basement on a Hill is “Schlock & Gore”, which you’ve been writing now for over 40 weeks. Could you tell us a bit about that?

45 weeks, actually! Schlock & Gore is my baby. When I was asked to write for The Basement, my mind immediately went to a review column. But with all of the review columns out there, why would anyone give one, let alone two shits about mine? The wheels spun a hair longer and I decided that I would lean hard into my niche specialty of weird, obscure, low-budget, and extreme films. I am thrilled to now be writing for CINEMASLICE as well. My column here will be called Schlock Du Jour!

A Slice of Fright – Season 2

CinemaSlice is proud to announce the 2nd season of our horror anthology series, A Slice of Fright!

This collaborative series features contributors from PA, MI, OH, TX, IL, IN, TN and beyond! 

Nothing speaks louder to our spirit of collaboration than A Slice of Fright– And we are truly humbled that we’ve seen enough support to produce a 2nd season of this short film series.

The Expected Nonsense – Show Announcement

In the coming weeks, months, years or what have you, I, Pete Flyod, will guide you through the cinema as no one has done before.

With honest appraisals of films based solely on opinions rooted in reality.

We watch films to escape reality.

To leave ourselves for those few hours and view the filmmaker’s vision of the story. But let’s face it, sometimes, we leave the experience sorely disappointed while other times we’re left with the hairs on the back of our necks standing up. I hope I can guide you through the world of cinema like a sage wizard, telling you which films to avoid like poisoned berries and which films to ingest like a healing potion.

This grown momma’s boy knows his movies folks. Trust in the fat guy…
