The Entity - Sidney J. Furie (Eureka)

The Entity – Sidney J. Furie (Eureka)

Growing up in the 70’s and 80’s with a really unhealthy fascination in the supernatural; ghosts, hauntings and things that generally made very loud bumps in the night, meant being really caught between a rock and a hard place. It was the golden age of.. Read More
Crimson – Juan Fortuny (Black House)

Crimson – Juan Fortuny (Black House)

I’m not sure why but I always thought of this film as being helmed under the directorship of Paul Naschy and it’s not really surprising due to his prolific stamp over Spanish cinema as both actor and director and indeed he does play a central.. Read More

The Void – Jamie Gillespie & Steven Kostanski (Signature Entertainment)

Although there’s no shortage of modern day horror films and the genre is fairly healthy I am sure many of us who lived through the golden era (the 80’s for me) find themselves a bit jaded with all the remakes and lack of inventiveness and.. Read More

Seoul Station – Yeon Sang-ho (Studio Canal)

By now any self-respecting zombie fanatic, survivalist anticipating the zombie apocalypse, will have jumped aboard the Train To Busan and noted that South Korea probably ain’t the best place to be visiting when the dead start to rise. If you need further proof on that.. Read More

Ghoul, Insanity Alert & Lunatic Hooker – London Underworld 1/3/17

There’s normally all sorts of ghoulish behaviour once the sun sets in Camden Town but tonight was going to be like none other and all manner of grizzly and gruesome things were about to happen in the Underworld. First we had a date with a.. Read More

Cultes Des Ghoules – Coven, or Evil Ways Instead Of Love (Hells Headbangers)

Slithering and oozing out of Poland circa 2004, the strange and sinister Cultes Des Ghoules impressed with their first two albums Häxan (2008) and Henbane (2013). The latter was described as “dramatic horror fuelled black metal from a band who really like long songs.” Well.. Read More
Bill & Phil – Songs Of Darkness And Despair (Housecore Records)

Bill & Phil – Songs Of Darkness And Despair (Housecore Records)

Well there’s a pairing. Everyone’s favourite Chardonnay enthusiast, Phil Anselmo and Bill Moseley. Actor, total horror hero and portrayer of some of the most bat-shit bad-asses in fear cinema. Seriously, watch him as Chop-Top in TCM 2 or Otis in ‘The Devils Rejects’ and tell.. Read More
Fright Night – Tom Holland (Eureka)

Fright Night – Tom Holland (Eureka)

There was no shortage of non-glittery bloodsuckers pulling in thirsty crowds at the flicks in the 80’s. The likes of Joel Schumacher’s The Lost Boys, Kathryn Bigelow’s Near Dark and Tony Scott’s The Hunger proved that a fascination with all things fanged and undead had.. Read More
