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 […]

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 […]

Crawl Bitch Crawl2

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).

The directorial debut of Robert Carlyle (who’s been missing from the big screen for far too long) looks like it might well hark back to that kind of […]

By Svetlana Fedotov A couple months ago, I reported on the shaky future of the live action adaptation of DC/Vertigo’s Constantine. Facing falling ratings and fierce comic competition, many fans were worried that the mad magician would not see a second season.
