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. A book is, all […]

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 […]

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.

By Keri O’Shea Since the widespread colourisation of film replaced black and white as the go-to format for popular cinema, horror movies have frequently led the charge when it comes to the most creative use of colour palates, special FX and lighting. It’s something of a myth, a myth which persists, that horror always takes […]

By Matt Harries I’ll begin my preamble by holding my hands up and admitting that I lag somewhat behind my cohorts on BAH when it comes to the latest horror – especially the independent variety. Perhaps because I spend so much time digging around in the musical underground, I tend to arrive upon the lesser […]

black cauldron 2

By Svetlana Fedotov Disney has always been a solid go-to for feel-good times and sing-a-longs about ice and snow and love or some junk. Bright-eyed princesses solving all the world’s problems with equally bright-eyed forest creatures skipping around their toes like the black plague of happiness has made the animation giant its own world power, […]

By Keri O’Shea It’s become customary, as we approach the end of a year, to complain about the dearth of good cinema in said year.  It’s almost a new Christmas tradition for film writers.
