For astronomers, the search for exoplanets helps us understand our place in the universe and determine whether Earth […]

Carrie (2013) trailer.

If this was a British movie, at least we could call it Carrie on Screaming. Or bleeding. Or something. Scary stuff. Hopefully for the right reasons, but maybe not. Stephen King, what do you think – write in and let us know?

Assault On Precinct 13/Dark Star by Alan Howarth (album review)

This album features music from John Carpenter’s 1976 cult classic ‘Assault On Precinct 13’ and his debut film ‘Dark Star’ from 1974.

Sinister (film review) – Frank’s Take.

Director/co-writer Scott Derrickson (‘The Exorcism Of Emily Rose’) creates a slow burn of macabre-oriented mayhem in the creepy caper ‘Sinister’. Derrickson and fellow scriber C. Robert Cargill churn out a traditional yet hackneyed horror showcase that marches to the beat of the same dreary drum. ‘Sinister’ features the conventional atmospherics of titillating tactics concerning a […]

Mockingbird Lane trailer.

Mockingbird Lane was meant to be the full Munsters TV reboot, but all we are left with now is a TV Movie pilot rather than a complete series. What, is the vampire/zombie/horror TV craze dying off now? Staked through the heart? For us Brits, having Eddie Izzard playing Grandpa Munster is the oddest thing about […]
