Petition launched for Ken Russell’s The Devils to be released uncut

The Devils

By Ben Bussey History can sometimes get a little fuzzy when it comes to controversial and/or heavily censored landmark films, but arguably never more so than when it comes to Ken Russell’s The Devils. While it’s no surprise that the highly provocative film has been dogged with notoriety ever since its initial release in 1971, […]

Eureka Bringing Us A Bit Of ‘The Other’…

The Other

By Ben Bussey As much as we look forward to exciting new horror movies, there can be a particular pleasure in being introduced to an older film of which you’ve hitherto known nothing. I must admit complete ignorance of The Other, 1972 chiller from To Kill A Mockingbird director Robert Mulligan, which Eureka Entertainment are […]

DVD Review: Stage Fright (2014)

Stage Fright

Review by Nia Edwards-Behi I have a soft spot for horror musicals. This may have somewhat coloured my immense enjoyment of Stage Fright, a film about which I hadn’t heard great things. This might be partially because it’s very musical-y. This isn’t a goth opera like Repo! The Genetic Opera, or a rockabilly B-movie homage […]

VOD Review: Mr Jones (2014)

Mr.-Jones

Review by Quin Imagine Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind as directed by Ken Russell. I think it’s pretty safe to say that would be a puzzling yet effectively strange film filled with startling visuals and powerful symbolism. In what I find to be the most surprising film I’ve seen this year, Mr. Jones takes […]

DVD Review: Ragnarok: The Viking Apocalypse (2013)

Review by Ben Bussey In opening, a note on title changes. Though the DVD artwork bears the title Ragnarok: The Viking Apocalypse, this film was released in its native Norway as Gåten Ragnarok (which I gather essentially translates as The Riddle of Ragnarok), and in the opening titles it is dubbed simply Ragnarok. It’s of […]

Pegg is the Devil, Combs is Poe, and we are sold on The Gathering

Pegg

By Ben Bussey Stop me if you’ve heard this one. The Devil pulls Edgar Allen Poe, Bram Stoker, Mary Shelley and HP Lovecraft out of purgatory and tells them to spin their scariest yarn ever – and the winner gets a free pass to the more desirable accommodation upstairs. Sounds interesting, no? And how does […]

Iron Sky 2 decides blasphemy is a great sales pitch

Iron Sky 2

By Ben Bussey The crowdfunding campaign for Iron Sky 2: the Coming Race has less than two weeks to go, but only just over halfway to its goal of $500,000. What better way to boost interest, particularly in the run-up to the silly season, than to do something grossly inappropriate with Jesus Christ? Watch the […]
