Horror: Cronos

In an interview that I read recently CRONOS Director Guillermo del Toro spoke about his childhood memories of the original Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark (1973) – a film that del Toro has just remade. During the interview he remarked that “For many years this was the scariest movie I ever saw. It was like […]

Movie: Thirst

THIRST is one of those movies that has lurked about in the periphery of my movie radar for a little while now. One of those films that, while I wasn’t overly informed about, I knew it was something that I’d check out — and probably enjoy — sooner or later. As luck would have it […]

Series: Kolchak: The Night Stalker

Long before Peter and Walter Bishop started exploring the fringe with that chick who isn’t Clare Danes. Before Sam and Dean put on their best denim and started poking around in the supernatural. Before Buffy was slaying creatures of the night with witty dialogue, and before Mulder and Scully were doing file keeping for the […]

Powers Cosmic: Episode 02

It only just occurred to me, as I was uploading the video files (and accompanying images and what not) for this new Powers Cosmic episode, that this is the first time that the characters have been seen in a location out side of the e-shack. This episode takes place in a cinema… a venue that […]

B-Movie: Deathdream

The ability to go delving back through some classic horror DVDs recently has given me a new appreciation of the genre. And while many are heralding Japan as the new home of horror, what my DVD archeology has taught me thus far, is that Japan is making a lot of the same mistakes that the […]

Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror

The heritage of movies is a great fascination of mine, as anyone who has been in the unfortunate position of being cornered by me, and subsequently endured a barrage of movie related drivel, will no doubt tell you. It disappoints me greatly that so many movie-goers allow some great films to pass them by, purely […]

Horror: Vampires + Zombies = Awesome

It’s a simple theory really. Take something awesome and smash it together with something else awesome and hope like hell that it results in something even awesomer. That’s the theory being adapted to film from the pages of Blatant Comics title, LAST BLOOD. What’s really cool, is that sometimes the awesome smashing machine spits out […]

Movie: I Aren’t Legend

SPOILER: WARNING GALORE! For three quarters of I AM LEGEND I was delighted… Ok, not ‘delighted’ so much as compelled, scared stupid, and even bought to tears. However, the same event which turned me into a blubbering mess also marked the demise of all that I’d hoped would eventuate from this, the third adaptation of […]

Remake: The last man on Earth

Amongst myself and my movie nerd friends, the subject of I AM LEGEND, the soon to be released Will Smith sci-fi, zombie thriller, has risen a few times recently. More than once the resemblance between I AM LEGEND and the classic Charlton Heston, 1971 film, THE OMEGA MAN – not surprisingly it’s because they are […]

Vampires: Nothing like the Sun

Last night, thanks to an egames expo promotional event, I was able to get some tickets to a preview screening of 30 Days of Night, an adaptation of the Steve Niles graphic novel series of the same name. Barrow is a small, secluded Alaskan town which, as a result of its location, is the perfect […]
