Dave’s Cultamania: Horror franchise mis-steps

by Dave Foyon 13/09/2016
For a movie studio, having a successful movie with a multiple franchise sequels is like adding toppings on a pizza. Sure, a plain cheese and tomato base will still taste good, and people will still happily buy it – but producing a subsequent range of extra ingredients, each with their own increased cost, will raise profits and keep […]

A new ‘underground’ cinematic horror experience

by Lauren Crofton 09/03/2016
I should explain before I start, by underground I don’t mean some cool new unheard of sub-genre of horror movie, I mean literally underground. Recently I participated in a new experience in which I watched the British cult classic The Descent in an old slate mine. Honister Slate Mine is located at the head of Honister […]

by Andrew Corbanon 13/02/2016
Last Thursday I was very lucky to attend the premier of Zoolander No.2 at the Empire Cinema in Leicester Square.

by MrCraiggyon 01/07/2015
