 Halloween is almost here and to celebrate we are going to delve into some of the most terrifying horror films of all time.

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.

 S.T.A.L.K.E.R Welcome comrade. Welcome to the end of all things. Welcome to the blasted and mutant infested wasteland we call, THE ZONE.

An interview with NICK POPE!

 

 The Uninvited – 1997. Today I have a treat for you. Last week we looked at The Bureau: XCOM Declassified (An amazing game.), and during my research I discovered that a friend of mine was involved on the project. Nick Pope, one the world’s foremost UFOLOGISTS (UFO expert) and Conspiracy Theorists (No, he’s not a loon! He’s one of the few who looks for truth, NOT sensational stories.)  Nick worked for the British Ministry of Defence (MOD)  from 1985 to 2006. Over the past three-decades he has written several books – the titles of which are seen on this page – and worked on various TV shows, films and other media. Essentially he’s a “REAL-LIFE”, Fox Mulder… Wonder if he […]

NEW DOCTOR!

 

   “The universe is big. It’s vast and complicated and ridiculous. And sometimes, very rarely, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles.” — The Doctor, Season 5, Episode 12. As the more informed amongst you will have probably noticed, Matt Smith is retiring from his role as Doctor Who. Now although this in its own is not a revelation; the person replacing him is. That’s correct – three people who do not yet know – the name of the “new” Doctor has been revealed. “The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don’t always spoil […]

AMERICAN CIVIL WAR: DAY 2

 

 “It is something great and greatening to cherish an ideal; to act in the light of truth that is far-away and far above; to set aside the near advantage, the momentary pleasure; the snatching of seeming good to self; and to act for remoter ends, for higher good, and for interests other than our own.” ? Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain. Welcome to the second day of slaughter as the Battle of Gettysburg continues. It is difficult to say who shall be victorious at this point. The Blue-Bellies have dug in just North of the town of Gettysburg, their superior numbers and technological advantage could be a major deciding factor. Not that it matters, as the veteran Greybacks, using their skills and […]

 “You will die! Like the others before you, one by one, we will take you.” – Cheryl: Evil Dead – 1981. I’m certain a number of you have seen the “new” Evil Dead film (2013). I must admit, I enjoyed it; despite the lack of Bruce Campbell. Who is Bruce Campbell? Oh, child. Allow me to enlighten you.

Well, I’ve got news for you pal, you ain’t leadin’ but two things, right now: Jack and shit… and Jack left town.” – Ash: Army of Darkness – 1992. Our tale is long and sometimes complicated.

FILM VS WRITTEN WORD!

 

 “It ain’t whatcha write, it’s the way atcha write it.” —Jack Kerouac. The written word captures our imagination; while films show the spoils of our mind to the world. Both of these mediums are a fantastic way of expressing ideas and concepts. However the battle-lines between readers and watchers is moving closer, as famous works of literary genius are transformed into fantastic high-budget films; then transformed back into print. So, Wookiee, you get books based on the film, which itself is based on a book. Thus giving you ONE film and TWO distinct books. All of which have their own fanatics lining the streets and flogging themselves in abject worship of “their” beloved personal choice. All this leaves us with […]
