Death Line – Gary Sherman (Network Distributing)

Death Line – Gary Sherman (Network Distributing)

Ah the good old London Underground, iconic though it is for us Londoners it’s a place we only venture if totally necessary. Overcrowded, subject to meltdowns, a place where manners go completely out the window and I could go on and on and on. Today.. Read More
The Changeling – Peter Medak (Second Sight)

The Changeling – Peter Medak (Second Sight)

It must have been three decades or so since I last saw 1980 movie The Changeling but memories had never really left from this one and all came flooding back when catching up on its Blu-Ray debut via Second Sight. This is one of the.. Read More
The Lion’s Daughter – Future Cult (Season Of Mist)

The Lion’s Daughter – Future Cult (Season Of Mist)

A couple of years have gone by since USA blackened sludgers The Lion’s Daughter told us that Existence Is Horror and proved that statement to a certain extent with some rather nasty music, now they are back. My biggest complaint last time around was comparisons.. Read More
Cannibal Ferox – Umberto Lenzi (Shameless)

Cannibal Ferox – Umberto Lenzi (Shameless)

Banned in 31 countries and the most violent film ever made. Yeah this is the normal sort of hype one encounters in the cinema of so called extremity all the time but Umberto Lenzi’s cannibal gut-muncher of 1981 actually walked the talk derailing anyone who.. Read More
Xtro – Harry Bromley Davenport (Second Sight)

Xtro – Harry Bromley Davenport (Second Sight)

I first heard about Xtro in slightly odd circumstances as my dad had shares in a company that had some involvement in its production. I saw some photos in a trade publication he was sent and boy do I wish I had snapped it up.. Read More
The Old Dark House – James Whale (Eureka)

The Old Dark House – James Whale (Eureka)

Although I am much more of a 70’s-80’s kind of person when it comes to my movies, you have to acknowledge the films of the real past and dip back occasionally to where things started, especially with genre films such as horror. The 1930’s had.. Read More
The Grotesquery – The Lupine Anathema And Other Blood-Curdling Tales Of Horror And The Macabre (Xtreem Music)

The Grotesquery – The Lupine Anathema And Other Blood-Curdling Tales Of Horror And The Macabre (Xtreem Music)

The Grotesquery is one of my ‘secret bands’. Not too many of my mates have heard of them and yet this band have produced some of the finest horror concept death metal albums that you’ll ever hear. It’s odd that the band aren’t more well-known.. Read More
Foul Body Autopsy – This Machine Kills Zombies (S/R)

Foul Body Autopsy – This Machine Kills Zombies (S/R)

Okay so it’s no real secret that Death Metal and Horror go hand in hand, if anything I would probably blame Horror for my addiction to this bloodsoaked genre, and vice versa. As my interest in Death Metal subject matter has grown more depraved so.. Read More
Wishmaster – Robert Kurtzman (Vestron Video)

Wishmaster – Robert Kurtzman (Vestron Video)

“Master! Apprentice! Heartborne, 7th Seeker Warrior! Disciple! In me the Wishmaster.” Ah no wrong section, get thee out of here Nightwish! Actually only the mighty belong and that’s Motorhead who get the closing credits song, but let’s go back and start at the beginning. I.. Read More
The Gate - Tibor Takács (Vestron Video)

The Gate – Tibor Takács (Vestron Video)

Anyone who used to hunt through the shelves of the old video rental stores in the 80’s will no doubt remember the label and the logo that was Vestron Video. It was their horror films that if you are reading this you have fond memories.. Read More
Abysmal Grief – Blasphema Secta (Terror From Hell)

Abysmal Grief – Blasphema Secta (Terror From Hell)

Italy has a very proud and revered history of both horror films and occultist themed doom and Abysmal Grief have been melding both together with spine chilling finesse since the late 90’s. It took me till last album ‘Strange Rites Of Evil’ at the tail.. Read More
Malvento – Pneuma (Third I Rex)

Malvento – Pneuma (Third I Rex)

I should feel guilty for never coming across Malvento in their 20 odd years of existence but then again there are many “cult Italian” acts so shrouded in obscurity within the underground that there are no shortage of them to discover. Malvento have been around.. Read More
