rec4 apocalypse

By Ben Bussey Look, we’re all thinking it, I’m just saying it. Anyway… the conclusion of the [REC] series is almost upon us, and damned if we’re not all thrilled to bits at the prospect. Many will be pleased that this film will return to the narrative established in the first two films, as opposed [...]

I Have Decided To Be No One – Dom Portalla and Project Greenlight

Posted on July 29, 2014 by Keri
noone

By Keri O’Shea In amongst all of the cat pictures, the wildly-erroneous news stories and the wild-eyed attention-seeking, sometimes social networking comes up trumps. One of those ways is when I’m lucky enough to get to know some of the directors whose work we’ve featured here, and better still, when I get a sneak-peek at [...]

Hand-in-hand with that comes personal appearances from all manner of horror filmmakers, and today the team have announced who festival attendees can hope [...]

Escape_From_New_York

By Svetlana Fedotov Well, folks, another San Diego Comic Con has come and gone, leaving in its wake exhausted fankids, sweaty, con-grimed cosplayers, and of course, project announcements up the ying-yang. Among the Guardians of the Galaxy teasers and Avengers: Age of Ultron poster releases, there were a few announcements perfectly tailored for Brutal as [...]

exquisite4cover

By Keri O’Shea Just when we might have thought that the rise and rise of the internet and the proliferation of new types of technology might eventually edge out older media altogether, we’ve been proved wrong: I certainly never expected to see audio tapes making such a comeback, for instance, and – more to the [...]

DVD Review: Almost Human (2013)

Posted on July 28, 2014 by Ben
Almost Human - Metrodome DVD

Review by Ben Bussey Following the microbudget horror scene can be a curious game. A lot of it is instantly forgettable, but now and then along comes the odd small scale DIY movie that manages to capture the attention of the (quote-unquote) horror community. Sometimes it’s easy to see why these cheap and cheerful efforts [...]

The Madness is Back – Mad Max: Fury Road trailer

Mad Max Fury Road

By Ben Bussey I’m tempted to say I won’t be sold until I’ve heard Tom Hardy say “TWO DAYZA GAW, AH SAWA VEERCAL THAT’D AUL AT TANKA.” But who I am kidding, I’m totally sold. This looks ace.

Theatre of Blood - Arrow Blu-ray

Review by Karolina Gruschka Writing this review could turn out to be a deadly endeavour. That said, I hast nay bad w’rd to utt’r against the great Edward Kendal Sheridan Lionheart, n’r against this delightful movie! Theatre of Blood is about an ambitious and hard working actor who has dedicated 30 years of his life [...]

Coo-coo-ca-choo – it’s the trailer for Kevin Smith’s Tusk

Posted on July 26, 2014 by Ben
Tusk

By Ben Bussey San Diego Comic Con rolls on, a very great distance from where I sit (though let me tell you, Yorkshire feels even more oppressively hot than I’d imagine California to be right now), and with it come the long-awaited trailers – so, naturally enough, here’s our first look at Tusk, Kevin Smith’s [...]

whiteofthe eye

By Matt Harries An abstruse and oft-overlooked final statement from the auteur Donald Cammell, White Of The Eye tells the tale of Paul and Joan White, a couple who live in Globe, a wealthy desert community near Tucson, Arizona. Paul (David Keith) makes a living as an expert installer of high-end stereo equipment. Joan (Cathy [...]

First Trailer for WWE and the Soskas’ See No Evil 2

Posted on July 25, 2014 by Ben
See No Evil 2

By Nia Edwards-Behi When news broke that the Soskas would be directing See No Evil 2, I knew I’d have to watch See No Evil. It hadn’t previously really appealed to me, but I know I’ll watch anything the Soskas do, so a date with Jacob Goodnight was necessary homework ahead of their third film. [...]

Well, that’s a new look for you Mr Leprechaun… (updated with video)

Posted on July 25, 2014 by Ben
Leprechaun

By Ben Bussey Alright – I doubt there are too many of us who hold Leprechaun particularly close to our hearts, are there? I mean, it was a fun but utterly lightweight series, first and foremost an excuse for Warwick Davies to wear silly clothes, make a plethora of bad puns whilst speaking in rhyme, and [...]

Posted on July 25, 2014 by Ben
Crawl or Die

By Ben Bussey It’s been just over a year since we first heard about a cool-looking low budget sci-fi horror movie called Crawl Bitch Crawl, following a badass heroine down a tight tunnel whist pursued by aliens. Now, under the more PC-sounding title of Crawl Or Die, this reportedly uber-claustrophobic movie is set to be unleashed to [...]

Brit Horror K-Shop set to take a bite out of chav culture

Posted on July 24, 2014 by Ben
K-Shop

By Ben Bussey Anyone who’s ever braved a kebab in the wee small hours whilst heavily intoxicated will surely have taken a moment to ponder just what the meat they’re putting in their mouth might actually be. In this instance, it seems they would be very right to give such pause for thought, for as [...]

Painkiller Jane

By Ben Bussey Dammit, those wacky Soska Sisters don’t wait around, do they? We haven’t even had a glimpse of their third feature film yet, and here they are announcing their fifth?

honeymoon-poster

By Ben Bussey Could it be? Is there a new horror film on the way that’s actually going to do something different with the cabin in the woods? Based on this trailer for upcoming Magnet release Honeymoon, I’d say it’s a possibility. I get the feeling this is one of those trailers that just stops [...]
