January 2017 News – Here we go again…

chaser-title

 

So what to expect for this year.. I really can’t answer that right now, but hopefully plenty more bizarre posts and tragic reviews, thanks to everyone who held out this year gone, I tried to keep the blog fresh with new posts but I got sick around October and I’ve been in and out of hospital since then. In fact I’m going back in at the end of this week but I have queued a few things. More updates will be on the way, I hope they are positive, in the meantime I have a question..

 What do you think of when someone  mentions “British Cinema”? Which era and films come to mind first? Which actors and directors step out?

 

 

Another epic anime transformed into real people for the big screen, do these ever work? I really enjoyed parts of Attack on Titan (2015) but it got a bit preachy…

Film projects

 

Eli Roth is directing Bruce  Willis in a new Death Wish remake… WTF?? More details here http://ihorror.com/eli-roth-directing-bruce-willis-death-wish-remake/

The Shape of Water is going to be get a movie remake, directed by Del Toro, probably the best director for a project like this but dude, where’s Pinocchio. The original author Andrew camilleri, penned the novel La Forma Dell’acqua that finally say daylight in 1994, and eventually got translated into English by 2002, and is the first novel of the Inspector Montalbano series. Del Toro has a habit of starting a series and not finishing it off *cough* Hell Boy *cough* Pacific Rim, so if this series is to be completed I’d imagine he won’t be making them all, but the book plays out like a sort of Dan Brown’s novel but less Illuminati and more social/political

Ridley Scott making shit up as he goes along??  Short answer, probably! I think prometheus was supposed to be the missing link but it raised more questions than it answered soooooo sequels and more cash who would avoid that?!
Original story https://www.theguardian.com/film/2016/jun/22/ridley-scott-alien-covenant-reboot-script-filming-troubles

More details on the Bye Bye man, get up to date on the story behind the film from the author of the original book at the Paranormal Podcast. It’s another story I feel will be dumbed down by hollywood’s fascination to regurgitate the same schit in the films.. got my fingers crossed that this had a unique look and feel. Doug Jones can be a creepy fucker though but considering this should be played by an albino.. it would be nice to have a real albino play this role.. gerrr I think I will try and get hold of this bookie to get real thrills and chills.

May 2016 News and Updates

Another fairly busy month with a ton of links added to the site.. Finally!

A couple of project that I’ve stumbled on twitter

Strange Breed @strangebred666 – an ultra-violent film from Australia with Werewolves also FB page, see twitter for details.

Investigation 13 @i13_Movie a group of college science students look into a deadly urban legend.

The Bye Bye Man – an upcoming american supernatural horror film directed by Stacy Title and written by Jonathan Penner, based on a short story called The Bridge to Body Island by Robert Damon Schneck and will star Doug Jones. Three college students move into an old off campus house, where they find themselves hunted by a supernatural entity called The Bye Bye Man (Jones) who may be responsible for possessing various people and causing them to commit killing sprees throughout recent history..
A bit Creepypastaish but might just work.

April 2016 News and Updates

Film News

underworld next generationUnderworld : Next  Generation – It seems the new Underworld film is underway Underworld Next Generation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Underworld: Next Generation

undisputed 4Undisputed 4 –has finally started releasing pictures and it’s looking impressive, it’s strange but the first news I had of the completion came from a bodybuilding YouTube channel, one of the massive guys was being interviewed and mentioned that he had just finished filming for Undisputed 4, I almost wept. I will be bouncing around in the cinema queue to see this.

Nina Simone Upcoming Movie – So much controversy about the upcoming Nina Simone movie as no one, including ??? believes she’s right for the part. But while this is big news and is impacting on a lot of people who agree, the film will still go ahead, and people will still go and watch it.. and so the Hollywood machine keeps on rolling. It does raise a lot of questions about who is really the best person to act in a biopic???? how much freedom do we give as “the Audience”.. to be honest, not a lot. Only last month i was quite disappointed by the Life (2015) film not only because the film was bland but I thought it could have been massively improved if James Dean actually looked like James Dean, but would the film have been better if the lead was given to an impersonator or lookalike? I feel an article coming on… But to be honest I don’t fully understand the fuss, although my choice would be Viola Davis .

BARBARELLA-2Barbarella – It looks like there is going to be a remake of one of my all time favourite films, Barbarella!! Oh man when will they leave things alone?!? It’s not something I’m ever going to rush out to see, but I do wonder what the figures would look like on new releases if all of the remakes were not counted.

Movie Reviews /Quick Flick Reviews –  I think I have the hang of these mini reviews now, although I did miss a couple of days this month I’ve done well in posting (nearly) everyday.

November 2015 News

Sadly the whole 31 days of horror went to pot after starting out so well, I will still continue with the list throughout November but due to health problems and the Rugby World Cup I’m really sorry I kinda copped out. The list as it stands today is here and I’ve not got a huge amount to do but I’m doing it.. After all it’s Halloween every day in my house.

I’ve got nothing much lined up for November, I’ll be penning some ideas for two epic lists detailing Selected movies of 2015 and Selected movies discovered in 2015.

Hopefully some more regular updates from now on… hopefully.. I will also be changing the look and feel of the blog, oh and I shall be adding a banner, I’ll bring that baby back!

I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween, did anyone find any creepy movies!?? Please let me know.

News! September 2015

This has been a long time coming!! I’ve been trying to keep a list of updates and changes to the blog over the last month, so this is a recap of all the shizz that went down in September.

OMG I’m constantly neglecting my blog again and again but I’m trying to hard to catch up!

During August I managed to lose my movie book, yes i have a movie book, I keep it by my side while I’m watching films and think of movie lists, and pencil down reviews and article I intend to write about. I also list everything that i watch, keep ratings and plan this blog. So with the missing book I dunno what’s going on, yep I’m a little lost puppy.

Started up a new section it’s currently called VS! I was going to call it movie battles but this first post had nothing to do two movies batting it out but instead more to do with a single character so for now it shall be known and VS but it might change. If you have any ideas of any VS’s you’d like to see me add then please contact me by commenting on this post. So far the posts include a head to head battle of Pyramid Head against himself.

Links

A couple new links to add to the page.
Lingstar HQ – an awesome movie/tv blog https://lingstar4films.wordpress.com/

Also I’m finally letting the cat out of the bag about my awesome movie shirts, I can’t praise Dr Dekker enough for his amazing patience but I have a pretty awesome collection of shirts now. Rabbit In Red

Fuck it.. lets hope he doesn’t sue me… lets make it clear where you can access a pantheon of amazing shirts!

Vs

pyramid-head-vs-pryamid-hea

You may have noticed a new item in the header, I’m forever trying to tweak the colours to make the header much clearer but i think what I’ll have to do is change my awesome background.. lemme know how visible it is on your screens, as I’m colourblind I have a few issues anyway. So the new Versus section is here and looking to stay as it’s tres popular. it might be on hold for October… but I have a lot of work in the pipeline!

New VS Section is here 

clive-barker-vs-stephen-kin

 

5 Selected

I’ve got a few of these in the pipeline but I couldn’t miss the opportunity to jump on the RIP bandwagon and the first “5 Selected” post of the month is dedicated to the late great Wes Craven. I’m working on a list of great Hutger Hauer movies, lemme know what you’d expect to see on the list.

Reviews

New reviews are on the site which include

  • We are Still Here (2015) – a dark ad smoldering classic horror, with intelligent use of gore and great suspense throughout, with a twist of Silent Hill.
  • X Ray / Hospital Massacre  (1981) – a lesser known hospital themed slasher that’s worth a watch especially if you like a whodunit
  • Lords of London  (2014) – strangely has nothing to do with London.. or lords!?

.

Lists

During august I managed to lose my movie book, yes i have a movie book, I keep it by my side while I’m watching films and think of movie lists, and pencil down reviews and article I intend to write about. I also list everything that i watch, keep ratings and plan this blog. So with the missing book I dunno what’s going on.

After finding my movie book I’ve managed to update the monthly lists.. I will get some more interesting lists published very soon.

Shorts

I’ve been working on a few shorts but a few of them were a little hard to get pictures for, finally managed to update the following.

  • Lot 254 – A possessed auction find or just a trick of the light?
  • Predator Dark Ages – Long awaited kick-stater film based around a medieval visit from our favourite alien

 

Post Discussions

POST DISCUSSION – Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) A in depth look into another weird and wonderful Cohen brothers movie.

With most of the year gone I’m going to have to start looking closely at a couple of lists, firstly my Selected films of 2015 and Selected films I watched in 2015. The difference being that the latter will include movies from other years that I’ve only just discovered. The stand out movie will be the Duke of Burgundy (2014).

Last and not least you may have noticed I’ve been playing around with backgrounds on the site a lot, trying to find something to combat the bland gray background that I’ve had since the start.

COMING IN OCTOBER

31 Days of Halloween

I’m aiming to do a 31 of my favourite horror movies, in some slight order, I’ve been penning notes and as I totally missed the opportunity last year this year will be pretty easy, I’m trying to include a range of films, black and white, classic, and obviously from the entire globe.

Yep! wish me luck!!

News – A-Z Finally Fixed!

I’ve only just had the break through brain wave on how to organised the A-Z.

It’s been bugging me for ages, but as Baz Luhrmann predicted certain thoughts blind side you on a Tuesday afternoon when you least expect it.

The A-Z. was getting pretty messy but now I’ve amended the page and the tags of the few reviews I have done and lo and behold all posts will automatically go onto the A-Z. once they have been posted! it might get some fine tuning here and there and if you’re really lucky I’ll also fancy the page up with some graphics.. but in the meantime it’s great not to have something that is up to date with minimum effort from moi… enjoy!

I’d better point out that the new system won’t be alphabetical and movies with more than one title (those listen in their native language and English) will be in both categories..
