Ash vs Evil Dead trailer 2.

And here’s the new trailer for the upcoming STARZ Original TV series Ash vs Evil Dead – not so much tongue in cheek, as tongue ripped out of cheek. But hey, nobody can do laconic darkness-slaying like Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell!

Walking Dead Season 6: trailer dead on arrival?

We hope that the 6th series of Walking Dead isn’t adequately represented by this suck-worthy teaser trailer that does very little but remind us who is still alive – which wouldn’t be such a problem if they didn’t have a fatality rate worse than the trenches on the first day of the Somme (as in World War […]

Eyes Without A Face (1960) Blu-ray/DVD film review.

From France and made in 1960, ‘Eyes Without A Face’ is a classic black and white horror film directed by Georges Franju. While the plot is deceptively simple, the telling of the tale casts dark shadows which permeate not only the movie but others in the future. Such was its influence on subsequent directors and […]

Zombie Apocalypse! Washington Deceased by Lisa Morton (book review).

‘Zombie Apocalypse! Washington Deceased’ is the second single author novel to be set in the same universe as the trilogy of ‘Zombie Apocalypse!’ mosaic novels, created by the British horror editor Stephen Jones using text from multiple contributors. This book has been written by Californian horror writer Lisa Morton. I reviewed its predecessor, Mark Morris’s […]

Monster Mash: The Creepy, Kooky Monster Craze In America: 1957-1972 by Mark Voger (book review).

The title ‘Monster Mash: The Creepy, Kooky Monster Craze In America: 1957-1972’ gives away what this book by Mark Voger is about. It’s just a shame, it has such a rubbish cover, even if it is an illustration of a Don Post mask, which I’m sure would put off readers who would really enjoy the […]

Weirder Shadows Over Innsmouth edited by Stephen Jones (book review).

This is another collection of Lovecraft homage, a cottage industry in the horror genre. Getting Lovecraftian stories published seems to be relatively easy nowadays, like shooting fish in a barrel. Before getting to the text, I want to mention the fine ink lines on the splendid illustrations by Randy Broecker. They reminded me of the […]

The Gift (2015) (film review by Frank Ochieng).

Traditionally, horror films and psychological thrillers follow a predictable path in their themes of dot-to-dot suspense. Rarely does a suspense piece deviate away from the formulaic blueprint that make these types of flicks the familiar frightfests they are in conception. However, the crafty Joel Edgerton, as the juggling movie mastermind sporting directing, acting and writing […]

Dark Was The Night (2015) (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

The deep woods holds the secret of a mysterious creature that moves fast and leaves dead bodies around. The narrative suggests it may be an Indian spirit or it may be a prehistoric creature or it may be some kind of devil. The story advances deliberately and slowly as a small town sheriff and his […]

The Happiness Of The Katakuris (2002) (film on Blu-ray/DVD review).

‘The Happiness Of The Katakuris’ is one of the most stupid and idiotic films you will ever see, surreal, baffling and mindbending, yet it is oddly catching in a strange sort of way. Coming from Japan and directed by Tashiki Miike, it tells the tale in glorious colour of four generations of an unfortunate family […]
