‘The Love Witch’ Review

by Rupert Harvey

Stars: Samantha Robinson, Gian Keys, Laura Waddell, Jared Sanford | Written and Directed by Anna Biller If Viva was Anna Biller’s ode to 1970s sexploitation films, The Love Witch is the auteur’s loving – and really quite lovely – homage to the 1960s horror heyday of Hammer Films and Roger Corman. Funny, seductive, and in the […]

‘Peepland #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Christa Faust, Gary Phillips | Art by Andrea Camerini | Published by Titan Comics I always feel as though I need a shower after reading Peepland. This is not the nostalgic 1980′s of a John Hughes movie, this is a dark, seedy underbelly peopled by bad people doing very bad things, and good […]

Breaking from the mold set by IBM and Apple, this was something new. Something to change what people believed computers could do. In a world of green on black, […]

‘Penny Dreadful: The Awaking #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics Penny Dreadful was one of my favourite shows of the last few years. I’m certainly not alone in that it quickly grew into something of a cult classic. Often violent and bloody, but very stylish and superbly written and acted. It’s […]

‘Dead or Alive Trilogy’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

by Paul Metcalf

When you allow yourself to be immersed in the world of Takashi Miike you do so with the knowledge that you are going to be taken to some really messed up places. Then of course he tricks you and gives you something completely different. The Dead or Alive Trilogy is an example of three films […]

‘Alien and Predator Figure Collection: Pvt. Hudson’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

After looking at the Xenomorph last week for Eaglemoss’ Alien and Predator Figure Collection it seems fitting to look at another iconic character from the Alien franchise. This week it is a certain character that may have proclaimed “Game Over!” a little too soon, but was a hero none the less. When we first saw […]

‘The Crow’s Eye’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

When a game opens up with you in an old Victorian style building, there are some assumptions made. This is what happens when you first load up The Crow’s Eye. Wandering the corridors of the Medical University of Crowswood though, it isn’t long before things start to change. In 1947 four students disappeared within the […]

‘Switch or Die Trying’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Platform games had to adapt to survive in the latest generations of gaming, and they did so in many ways. You have the 3D style where the open world environment extended the way platforms were interacted with, then you had the ones that stayed 2D (or 2D.5) and upped the challenge. This is where Switch […]
