Cameron Romero’s Origins is coming to get us, Barbara

Cameron Romero Origins

By Ben Bussey I’ve already said my piece on Cameron Romero’s Origins, and my feelings haven’t changed. I don’t like the idea of a Night of the Living Dead prequel; I don’t think a literal explanation of the zombie outbreak will add anything to the mythos of Romero Sr.’s original, and in fact runs contrary […]

In Order of Disappearance - Metrodome DVD

Review by Tristan Bishop Stellan Skarsgard’s 40 year plus career has taken in a lot of different work, from his long-running collaborations with eternal enfant terrible of art-house cinema Lars Von Trier (so far he has appeared in six of the director’s films), to his roles in the recent Marvel Thor and Avengers films, to […]

stonewalkers

By Keri O’Shea As I alluded to in the introduction to our Childhood Terrors series, the bookshelf has long been (and hopefully still is) a formidable presence in children’s lives – a rich seam of ideas at the threshold of a room, teeming with characters and forces which command real power.

By Guest Contributor Helen Creighton Published in the early 1980s, The Unexplained – Mysteries of Mind, Space and Time was a magazine perfectly designed to impress the young and credulous mind. It looked grown-up and vaguely ‘scientific’, although it was the absolute opposite. It avoided crass, splashy headlines and sensationalism for lengthy, scholarly-looking articles, laden […]

By Keri O’Shea (For the first part of this article, please click here.) Signs of the Times Although Misty focused on supernatural and fantastical goings-on in its stories, between the lines it was still very much a product of the late seventies and early eighties, with plenty of evidence of the social and political situation […]

Detour

By Nia Edwards-Behi I wasn’t a horror ‘fan’ as a child, per se. I certainly didn’t have anything against the genre. However, I was an avid fan of the Goosebumps series of books. More than that, I’m fairly certain that the Goosebumps series was my first contact with the horror genre. I know I read […]
