Silver Surfer: Awe That’s cool!

With all the Christmas hub-bub and the clocking up of kilometres, visiting the family, going on lately I’ve barely had a chance to keep up with the stuff that really matters… Sci-fi movie news.

Hellboy: Blood & Iron Trailer

One comic book to film adaptation that hasn’t received much of a show in here on EOL is the Hellboy franchise.

I’ll admit to initially being disappointed when I first heard that Robert […]

As far as monsters go the humble werewolf seems to always end up an ‘also ran’ in horror movies. Always eating the bridesmaid and never the bride; Werewolves are usually relegated to ‘henchmen’ status or, worse, mindless animalistic killing machines. Where your Vampires get to prance about being all charming, seductive and even noble, Werewolves […]
