Nightmare Honeymoon

Do not consummate.


Rod Lott
Presented by Warner Archive in both theatrical and television versions, 1974's Nightmare Honeymoon carries the tagline "Thank heavens, it's only a movie!" — obviously inspired by The Last House on the Left's "To avoid fainting, keep repeating, it's only a movie" the year prior. Despite sharing a rape-revenge story, Nightmare Honeymoon is nothing like Last House. It's also not a horror film by any stretch of the imagination, of which it possesses none of its own.

Smith Westerns — Soft Will


Zach Hale
Most bands don’t make their “mature” album until they’re, you know, mature. Chicago trio Smith Westerns is like the indie-rock equivalent of Robin Williams in Jack: just a few years removed from high school, yet appearing to age more rapidly than the majority of their contemporaries.
