Zombeavers-1

By Quin As DVDs become obsolete, what will become of director’s commentary? I was lucky enough to be in the right place and the right time tonight, and I witnessed something that may just answer that question. The answer is Periscope. For those of you who don’t know, Periscope is a live video streaming app […]

DVD Review: Digging Up The Marrow (2014)

DIGGING_UP_THE_MARROW_DVD_SLV_V0c

By Ben Bussey I realise it’s bad form to start off a review with a stab at someone else’s, however… as well acquainted as we are with absurd, over-enthusiastic DVD cover quotes which invariably promise far more than the film itself ultimately has to offer, the choice of cover quote for Adam Green’s latest movie […]

By Ben Bussey Look, it’s been a slow news week around these parts, okay? I’ll admit I seem to have missed that the Corman-produced SyFy TV movie Sharktopus had wound up spawning a series: don’t know if this is the third, fourth or seventeenth in the CGI-strewn saga, and I don’t really care to check my […]

Oh Gods… Robin Hardy crowdfunding second Wicker Man sequel

Wrath of the Gods poster

By Ben Bussey I should expect most readers are familiar with 1973’s The Wicker Man, the late great Christopher Lee’s favourite film from his own vast body of work, and regarded by many as one of the finest films ever produced in Britain, regardless of genre. I imagine rather less readers are as familiar with […]

DVD Review: Shark Killer (2015)

Posted on June 30, 2015 by Ben
Shark Killer

By Ben Bussey It’s no surprise when a low-budget straight to DVD shark movie turns out to be complete and utter garbage, but there’s a particularly bitter sting in the case of Shark Killer. Contrary to the utterly generic ominous fin cover art chosen by distributor Image Entertainment, this was a movie that, on a […]

Blu-ray Review: Hawk the Slayer (1980)

Posted on June 29, 2015 by Ben
Hawk the Slayer - Network Blu-ray

By Ben Bussey British contributions to the sword and sorcery genre are surprisingly few and far between. The Americans and Italians churned them out like butter, but the UK was a rather less active participant. It’s not too hard to see why; the genre came to prominence after John Milius struck gold (or perhaps ‘forged […]

Crawl Or Die set for UK TV premiere on Horror Channel

Crawl Bitch Crawl2

By Ben Bussey Microbudget sci-fi action horror flick Crawl Or Die has been on our radar for quite some time, capturing our attention with its early trailer (under its original title Crawl Bitch Crawl) way back in July 2013. Yet somehow we (or your esteemed editor at least) have never managed to see it to […]

The Avengers Series 5

By Ben Bussey Opening disclaimer: at the time of writing I’ve yet to get through the entire seven disc Blu-ray set that Studiocanal have lovingly put together for Series 5 of TV classic The Avengers (in the wake of series 4 enjoying similar treatment earlier this year). However, I just had to bring this review […]

The Devil’s Carnival is back in town – watch the Alleluia! trailer

Alleluia the Devils Carnival - David Hasslehoff

By Ben Bussey Is it possible to do jazz hands whilst letting your devil horns fly at the same time? That seems the most apt gesticulation at the arrival of the trailer for Darren Lynn Bousman’s latest Gothic horror musical extravaganza. Alleluia! The Devil’s Carnival is of course the sequel to 2012’s The Devil’s Carnival, […]

By Ben Bussey I’m not sure we can ever really suggest that a series is quitting while it’s ahead by cashing out at film number five (or number seven if we count the Japanese sequel and last year’s spin-off The Marked Ones). Still, while producer Jason Blum might not necessarily have an impeccable track record […]
