by Catherina Gioino

Stars: Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Rob Corddry, John Malkovich, Dave Franco, Analeigh Tipton | Written and Directed by Jonathan Levine At first it was seen as the potential Twilight of zombie movies, and by that I mean it could have turned a much loved subject (like zombies or vampires) into much hated genre: the romantic horror, […]

‘Nothing But The Truth’ DVD Review

by Mark Allen

Stars: Kate Beckinsale, Matt Dillon, Vera Farmiga, Alan Alda, Angela Bassett, David Schwimmer, Noah Wyle | Written and Directed by Rod Lurie I’m always somewhat skeptical when it comes to modern films that have an overlong transition from celluloid to home video, as there either wasn’t enough interest in a DVD release from the original distributor or nobody […]

by Jack Kirby

Stars: Jessica Chastain, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Megan Charpentier | Written by Neil Cross, Andrés Muschietti, Barbara Muschietti | Directed by Andrés Muschietti In preparation for watching Mama, I caught up with The Orphanage, the logic being that both come under the ‘presented by Guillermo del Toro’ horror label, are directed by Spanish filmmakers and both deal […]

Tales from the Crypt 2×06 – “The Thing from the Grave” Review

by Nathan Smith

Original airdate – May 8, 1990 If there’s a single plot element that Tales from the Crypt has mined with varying success, it’s the jilted, jealous lover plotline. Someone wants someone, and somebody may already have that somebody, and add violence to that mix and you’ve got yourself a mixture that fits right on the […]

‘House of Cards: Season One’ DVD Review

by Catherina Gioino

CHAPTERS 1 – 3 There are very few examples of adaptations or remakes that have taken well to the public liking, and even fewer prove to be worth the watch and outdo everything in its way. This perfectly describes House of Cards, a remarkable show following the narcissistic Francis Underwood in his strife for political […]

by Phil Wheat

Stars: Rosie Day, Sean Pertwee, Kevin Howarth, David Lemberg, Dominique Provost-Chalkle | Written by Paul Hyett, Conal Palmer, Adrian Rigelsford | Directed by Paul Hyett Brutal, harrowing, unflinching and relentless.

Comics Round Up – Razorjack, Death Sentence and more!

by Jack Kirby

Razorjack, John Higgins, Titan Comics John Higgins was the colourist on such well-regarded titles as Watchmen and The Killing Joke and series such as Hellblazer and Judge Dredd, as he keenly informs us on the kind of egotistical introduction to Razorjack, a book he has written, pencilled and coloured all by himself.
