Well the Halloween season 2015 is upon us now and what better way than to cozy up to the youngsters at the box office than offering the innocuous tingly treat ‘Goosebumps’? The goofy-minded family-friendly frightfest does have the ingredients to muster up some interest for the little goblins out there looking for hearty rounds of boos and […]

Crimson Peak      (film review by Frank Ochieng)

The feasting of the eyes comes to mind when realising the polished opulence of writer-director Guillermo del Toro’s Gothic supernatural production ‘Crimson Peak’. Undeniably luscious and wonderfully bizarre, ‘Crimson Peak’ is a psycho-sexual thriller that resonates with the enticing visual senses and registers with the proper amount of off-kilter seduction and twisted charm. For filmmaker del Toro his […]

The Art Of Hotel Transylvsania 2 by Brett Rector (book review).

I should say from the start, I didn’t see the first ‘The Art Of Hotel Transylvsania’, let alone this sequel, ‘The Art Of Hotel Transylvsania 2’. The lady publicist at Titan remembered I was a sucker for artbooks and presumably wanted to see what I made of this book by Brett Rector. The information gleaned […]

The Inhabitants (film review by Frank Ochieng).

The psychological chiller ‘The Inhabitants’ may unfairly be dismissed as yet another atmospheric haunted house frightfest for consideration. It would be a shame to automatically assume that this daunting horror gem was anything but creepily imaginative and stimulating. Thankfully, the filmmaking siblings Michael and Shawn Rasmussen put an ignited and distinctive spin on the conventional […]

Videodrome (1983) (Blu-ray film review).

There are some films that I saw when I was a little younger. thirty-odd years. back that I wondered what the writer/director was on. Then again, my parents were away, I was on holiday, had the loan of a video recorder from a mate and I was working my way through the local video shop’s […]

Encounters Magazine April/May 2015 issue # 13  (e-mag review)

As the cover date shows, I got to this ‘magazine late. ‘Encounters’ is one of the many small on-line magazines that publish Science Fiction, fantasy or horror by not so famous authors. Paying one cent a word or less, they are not going to make anyone rich but they provide a useful training ground for […]
