GHOSTBUSTERS!

 

  “Do you believe in UFOs, astral projections, mental telepathy, ESP, clairvoyance, spirit photography, telekinetic movement, full trance mediums, the Loch Ness monster and the theory of Atlantis?” – Ghostbusters. Last week we looked at the Gremlins, this week we look at another cult series that began the same weekend as Gremlins… on the very same day in fact. That’s right, on 8th June, 1984, Ghostbusters stepped out of the supernatural shadows and claimed its place on the world stage. Within a matter of weeks they had both become ’80’s cultural icons… and even now, thirty years later, they remain as two of the most influential film series of all time. For those who have not seen Ghostbusters, I shall adumbrate… […]

LEXX!

 

 “I am Kai, last of the Brunnen-G. Millennia ago, the Brunnen-G led humanity to victory in the war against the Insect civilization. The Time Prophet predicted that I would be the one to destroy the Divine Order and the League of 20,000 Planets. Some day, that will happen… but not today, as today is my day of death. The day our story begins.” – Kai. This article is not for the squeamish, the sensitive, those with pink hair, or those who only live for big budget, six-pack fueled, romance driven, science-fiction TV shows. This TV series, Lexx, represents everything that is glorious about complete and utter wonderful nonsense. Made on a shoe-string budget, staring lesser known Canadian and British stage […]

Underwater Monsters!

 

 “Gavin to Adante: “So you’re proof that sea monsters really do exist?” – Jasmine Angell, Luminous. Forget Jaws! Bugger, Deep Blue Sea! Ignore, The Beast! And pay no heed to the Creature of the Black Lagoon! For today, we delve into the very depths of the oceans; today we explore every crevice on the sea floor; today we look past every piece of sea-weed; today… we find the worst creatures that the “big blue wet thing” has ever ejaculated into the human world. Today we look at bad underwater monster films. “He deliberately left you your boat because he wants to fight you alone on the sea.” – Orca. For those of you who haven’t seen these films, fear not, […]

TREMORS!

 

 “I vote for outer space. No way these are local boys.” – Tremors. Today we look at something truly underground. (See what I did there, Wookiee?) Today we look at a franchise that has kept the world entertained since 1990. Today we look – silently and with great care – at the wonderfully blood-soaked world of Tremors. “Assblasters. How’s that?” – Tremors 3. We shall start at the beginning; which is a very good place to start. In 1990, American director/producer Ron Underwood (Mighty Joe Kong, City Slickers) released his first full-length film – Tremors. This Western-Comedy-Horror, was made for roughly eleven-million Dollars, and made close to fifty-million at the box office. With its unique characters, witty one-liners, and fantastic […]

TOP 5: HORROR GAMES!

Previously we have touched horror titles such as Slender, Evil Dead, Among the Sleep and so many more…. So, it should go without saying, we are going to focus on other titles. AMNESIA: THE DARK DESCENT. (2010/2011) This survival-horror title comes to us from Frictional Games. This independent game plays a little like a first-person adventure game  though with more of a horror feel. Obviously, as you can tell by the title, you have amnesia and have to piece together what has happened to you all the while desperately trying to avoid supernatural creatures. Unlike most horror games, if you catch […]

SLENDER!

 

 S Every now and then, Wookiee, a concept is born that soon develops into a fully-formed multi-limbed beast that has a divine will of its own… and a taste for consuming social and cultural norms. One such beast is the SLENDER MAN! Since his arrival onto our plane, SLENDER MAN has taken the world by storm – memes, games and even a full length film now bare his name. But like many greats… he came from humble beginnings. L On the 8th of June, 2009, a “’Paranormal Pictures” Photoshop contest was launched by Something Awful. Participants were asked to transform ordinary photographs into something otherworldly. Soon participants began sharing their creations many of which came with fabricated witness accounts. (Sounds […]

MISTER JOE BLACK!

 

 “Joe Black – ‘Vile Volumes for Villainous Children’ CD – Cabaret, Vaudeville, Halloween, Comedy.” It’s Friday, and that means something different. Today we have an interview with – perhaps one of the most amazing musical performers of our time – Mister Joe Black. Here we go then. 01: What’s new in the life of Mr. Joe Black? I have just relocated to Brighton. Which has been absolutely wonderful! It’s a city that suits me just fine. Such diverse wonderful people… with the occasional harmless crazy thrown in. 02: What inspires your unique style? Paintings, film and music. I’m obsessed with the fashion and culture of the 1920’s and 1930’s. Realistically, I’m sure they were a horrible, horrible time to live […]
