He later went on to play a dodgy labour organiser with ambitions of power as the rather evil Tom Zarek in the Galactica re-imagining. He started off as Michael Douglas’s replacement in the cop series […]

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter: music by Paul Haslinger   (CD review)

I’m at a slight disadvantage here, having only seen the first five ‘Resident Evil’ films, so treating ‘The Final Chapter’ purely as a piece of music. Mind you, considering the film isn’t being released until the 3rd of February, I’m probably ahead of everyone here by a couple months listening to the music. I should […]

Deadlier Than The Male: Femme Fatales Of 1960s And 1970s Cinema by Douglas Brode   (book review)

Having covered a special edition of ‘Retro Cinema’ on femme fatales last year, it seemed appropriate to have a look at Douglas Brode’s book, ‘Deadlier Than The Male: Femme Fatales Of 1960s And 1970s Cinema’ where he looks at 108 actresses who played femme fatales in their acting careers. As Brode points out in his […]

The Bye Bye Man (2017) (film review by Frank Ochieng)

Well, there are a couple of things that one can praise ‘The Bye Bye Man’ for in an attempt to give this incredibly unoriginal teen screen horror showcase some flimsy credit. For starters, ‘The Bye Bye Man’ continues the tradition of being another unforgettable goosebump saga to become meager fodder in the cinematic dumping ground of the new year […]
