Horror icon George A. Romero passes away aged 77

by Dave Foyon 21/07/2017
First things first, I don’t normally do the whole ‘celebrity death’ thing. People die – it’s a normal occurrence – and eventually all of our childhood heroes will die too. It may be a shock when it happens, it may hit us harder than the death of some other randomer – sometimes it may even […]

Dave’s Cultamania: Horror franchise mis-steps

by Dave Foyon 13/09/2016
