Dead Witches – The Final Exorcism (Heavy Psych Sounds)

I hadn’t caught the debut album of Dead Witches, which is a bit of an oversight for me, given that I’ve been a fan of Mark Greening’s other projects, such as the obligatory Electric Wizard, Ramesses and With The Dead…. Continue Reading →

Crucible Of The Vampire – Ian Ross McNamee (Screenbound) Review and Competition

Scroll down for competition. British horror films definitely need support and encouragement although sometimes it can be a difficult task. I am more of an age to appreciate the old guard such as Peter Walker and Norman J Warren and… Continue Reading →

Nattravnen – Kult Of The Raven (Transcending Obscurity Records)

When I was a young(ish) lad in the mid-eighties I used to love King Diamond. I was a big fan, not so much of the marmite vocals but of the way each album told an original horror story from beginning… Continue Reading →

Opera – Dario Argento (Cult Films)

As far as many are concerned Opera made in 1987 is the last film truly deserving of director Dario Argento’s auteur status. It also saw the end of the golden era for Italian genre cinema which was rapidly in decline… Continue Reading →

Deceased – Ghostly White (Hells Headbangers)

Deceased have been plying their morbid trade on official releases since way back in 1991. It’s been a long, long time since their last full length album, the excellent “Surreal Overdose” back in 2011, but I suspect not even death… Continue Reading →

Lords Of The Cemetery – Path Of Damara (Great Dane Records)

This is the second album by this French death metal outfit whose debut was a typically old school death metal affair but done with French flair by adding occult like adornments to the songs as this sophomore continues that avenue… Continue Reading →

Them – Manor Of the Se7en Gables (SPV)

Trans-Atlantic Power/Thrash outfit Them have returned once more, bringing with them another host of supernaturally inclined songs detailing the continued trials of the warlock K.K Fossor. 2016’s ‘Sweet Hollow’ began this tormented tale and it continues on at the Manor… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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…. Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →
