Fast, brutal, bloody, gritty and enjoyable – Devil’s Playground packs a solid punch. Occasionally it slips in pace and some characters are annoyingly superfluous, but overall it’s a thoroughly watchable zombie horror with a solid heart and one very bloody hammer. Newgen Industries have trialed a new performance-enhancing drug on 29,000 people across the UK… [...]

The original cost hardly anything to make (by Hollywood standards) and it smashed into the box office and ripped almost 200 million dollars from audiences across the globe. It scared people silly and provided a surprisingly original take on the haunted house / possession film. Therefore it was no surprise Paranormal Activity 2 has appeared, [...]

Puppets, marionettes, killer kids, mythical midgets, re-animated killers in cookie form, they all have the potential to be horrifying. And hilarious. A recent conversation about German Troma flick Killer Condom inspired me to take some time out recently to compile a list of my favourite Miniature Killers from some classic and questionable horror movies and [...]

Adopting the standard revenge movie format, Ticked Off Trannies With Knives features a group of transgender ladies getting violently attacked after leaving a club with some questionable looking chaps. Waking up in hospital after barely surviving, ‘Bubbles’ and her friends decide to enact some much needed vengeance on their attackers. There are some bizarre subplots [...]

The Rocky Horror Picture Show – the mad mix of classic horror, super-charged sensuality and outrageous fantasy – celebrates its 35th Anniversary with a high definition Blu-ray Disc (BD) release on 18th October from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Rocky Horror comes to BD for the first time with a newly re-mastered version of the [...]

Beginning with a scene in which a group of medical residents forcibly move the mouths of cadavers to make it appear as though they’re talking, this is obviously a movie that’s out to shock. Unfortunately, it’s so heavy-handed in its attempts that it quickly becomes a tiresome mess filled with loathsome characters and little in [...]

Metalocalypse is an [adult swim] animated series, created by Brendon Small and Tommy Blacha, which is centered around heavy metal band Dethklok, a group so popular that they constitute the 7th largest economy on Earth. Their line-up consists of Nathan Explosion, William Murderface, Skwisgaar Skwigelf, Pickles and Toki Wartooth. Metalocalypse follows the everyday trials and [...]

Craig Fairbrass is a veteran British actor with a huge range of experience; three years on Eastenders, a memorable role in Cliffhanger, a Uwe Boll film, roles in Stargate SG-1 and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and even voicing major characters in the Call of Duty franchise. Being involved in over 12 films in 2010 [...]

An idyllic island town is under attack by that most invasive of pests: zombies! Port Gamble is being overrun with braineaters, and the people seem powerless to stave them off. But wait, a rag tag band of rebels is trying to turn the tide and push the invading hoards of undead back. It sounds familiar, [...]

Not words you ever want to hear in relation to your bedroom skills, but “So Bad it’s Hilarious” is a phrase I’ve batted around more often than “Cack-badgers” and “I love you Emily Browning”. It relates to horror films that are incredibly, incredibly bad, but are so inept that it’s genuinely fun to watch them. [...]

Freddie ‘Dead Cert‘ Frankham is a retired fighter who has turned his back on a life of outlaw gangsters and unlawful boxing matches in favour of running a newly opened club in London. Out of the blue one day, he is introduced to a shady Romanian businessman who provides him with a proposition he just [...]

Season 6 is a come-back of sorts, as The X Files enlivens itself by coming to conclusions on the conspiracy, making some truly excellent “monster of the week” episodes and generally being continually compelling and exciting. A return to an early form, and a very welcome one.

The Good Those familiar with one of [adult swim]‘s more popular shows will already know exactly what to expect from this special Star Wars-centric episode; lots of nerdy, puerile humour, genuinely well-observed sight gags, celebrity voice acting and some geek-a-rific in-jokes. While the regular show is geared towards nerds who will appreciate jokes based on [...]

Night of the Demons 2010 is a puerile mistake. It is a failed pastiche attempt that tragically doesn’t meet expectations. The soundtrack is awesome and Edward Furlong is very good, but otherwise it fails to excel. Unless you’re under thirteen or incredibly drunk, you’re better off watching the original instead. Broussard Mansion has a disturbing, [...]

Revolver Entertainment are proud to present the Region 2 DVD release of the brutally metal Adult Swim show, Metalocalypse Season 2. Over 5 hours of metal mayhem will be available on DVD October 11th, at £19.99 RRP. Metalocalypse is an animated comedy series that follows the on and off-stage adventures of Dethklok, the world’s most [...]

Night of the Demons, directed by Adam Geirasch (Autopsy) and starring Shannon Elizabeth (American Pie, Scary Movie), Edward Furlong (Terminator 2, American History X) and Monica Keena (Freddy Vs Jason) is a remake of the 1988 cult classic about a bunch of kids who go to a Halloween party and end up in a face [...]
