‘Supernatural – The Complete Ninth Season’ Blu-ray Review

by Nathan Smith

I personally loved season nine of Supernatural. I felt like it was a return to form for a show that had some dips and dives in its series run. It isn’t easy for anyone to keep someone’s attention over 173 episodes, but the writers, actors, and all crew involved have managed to keep audiences entertained […]

‘The Early Works of Wakefield Poole’ DVD Review (Vinegar Syndrome)

by Mondo Squallido

My only connection with Wakefield Poole prior to watching Boys in the Sand was Calvin Culver (also known as Casey Donovan) who appeared in Radley Metzger’s film, Score. Of course, the name Wakefield Poole is one you hear a lot when you are a fan of the Golden Age of adult cinema. Thanks to those […]

Ten Best: Frightfest 2014 Movies

by Phil Wheat

Well this years Frightfest is over and I’ve had a week to digest everything – it’s safe to say this year was… interesting. The move from the Empire to VUE West End, whilst not without the odd teething problem, was a success. Yes, the atmosphere had changed a little, at least in terms of experiencing […]

‘WWE Brothers of Destruction’ Blu-ray Review

by Paul Metcalf

As a horror fan I’ve always liked the wrestlers with the darker sides.  The Undertaker and Kane are two wrestlers who have had a certain mystique and managed to get away with the more silly story lines featuring the supernatural.  For the most part though their destructive force has been more of an importance to […]

Trust the Daleks to give Doctor Who a wakeup call, and for me to be torn on whether I liked Into the Dalek or not. Last week I noticed little attempts to rewrite the history of the Doctor, and while it bugged me I let it go, but it happened again this week and this […]

‘WWE: OMG! Volume 2 – The Top 50 Incidents in WCW History’ Blu-ray Review

After getting past the fact that WWE: OMG! Volume 2 – The Top 50 Incidents in WCW History is a title that is confusing (should this not be 51-100 maybe?), looking back at the best and worst of WCW is always fun.  There are moments that I’m sure some wrestlers would love to forget but others that […]
