Alien Covenant trailer reaction (better late than never!)

by Dave Foyon 13/01/2017
Alien Covenant trailer reaction (better late than never!) This is going to be a relatively similar to an article that I wrote just over a year ago, sorry! But that’s what happens when you’re an Alien megafan,and obsess over every tiny piece of news/footage that’s released. At that time, the buzz around the Alien franchise had been peaked […]

McDROID Review

by James Buckinghamon 10/05/2016
Usually, when it comes to Tower Defence games my ADD-like attention span kicks in, and my brain shuts down quicker than a sated bear in winter. But Elefantopia have devised a great game that adds a new gameplay element to the tired old TD game type, and it works really, really well. McDROID is the first release […]

Review – The Ones Below (2015), David Farr

by Mark Cantyon 12/03/2016
"Is that too cold?" "No, that's fine." And with that surprisingly apt opening exchange, "The Ones Below" begins. I'd like to see what it was like before the last edit, and with a different lighting director - I can't help feeling like they washed away a bit too much of the really gritty bits that would have made this more effective and engrossing.

The Casebook of Sam Spallucci, by A.S. Chambers

by Peter Ray Allisonon 30/09/2015
This first casebook is an interesting offering from the Lancastrian author A.S. Chambers . Rather than a traditional novel, The Casebook of Sam Spallucci is more a series of inter-connected short-stories, something that we see far too few instances of, and the deliberately experimental nature of this book is to be praised. The overall story […]

Review: Stephen King’s 11/22/63

by Peter Ray Allisonon 08/11/2014
11/22/63 is a rare novel by Stephen King that does involve horror, but is it any good? Peter Ray Allison goes back to the good-old-days of 1960's America and finds out.

The Voices

by TinkerTonkson 24/04/2014
Living with a mental illness is always hard, but nobody truly suffers so much as Jerry (Ryan Reynolds) – a happy go lucky chap, that happens to be a schizophrenic who hears voices. Two specific voices in fact – that of his benevolent dog, but also his homicidal pet cat. Serving as manifestations of both […]

Scarface, Rebooting a Legend and Playing with Political Fire

by James Woodheadon 25/03/2014
Last week I let out a little rant about the subject of reboots, it seems this week will be the same. Last night, The Wrap revealed that Chilean director, Pablo Larrain (Academy Award nominee for “No” as Foreign Language film) will be taking over the helm to from David Yates (Harry Potter and the Deathly […]

Slasher Saturdays – Peeping Tom

by Michael Doddon 13/10/2013
Last week we discussed a film which is known as one of the most influential horror stories ever released in the cinema. This week we will be doing the same, but unlike Psycho, it took a long time for the full significance of Michael Powell’s Peeping Tom to be realized.  The movie came out three months before Hitchcock’s […]

Slasher Saturdays – Psycho

by Michael Doddon 05/10/2013
I am obligated to say that there will be spoilers ahead, but as I am going to be talking about one of the most important, well-known and culturally significant films ever made, I doubt the necessity of such a proclamation. As a matter of fact, if you have not seen Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho then you really have […]
