Alien: Covenant (Film Review) (Spoilers!)

 

 “Sometimes, in order to create, one must destroy.” – Prometheus. Well here we are after five years of waiting. Five years of wondering. Five years of cake munching. Behold, Alien: Covenant is here. Behold its purity, its beauty, its relative distance from Prometheus. Join me brothers and sisters of the Giger. Join me as we delve into the depths of Alien: Covenant. (I see Wookiee has rescheduled many of my articles. Just go with it folks. You may get the latest review 3 months late, but at least you’re getting it.) SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! BLOODY SPOILER ALERT! AVOID THIS ARTICLE IF YOU’VE NOT SEEN ANY OF THE FILMS IN THE FRANCHISE OR THIS FILM. YOU’VE BEEN WARNED! IT’S YOUR […]

A few films based on H.P. Lovecraft’s Work

Tell me honestly, are you surprised that I have produced another Lovecraft article? Well if you are, then you must be new here. If not, welcome to another Lovecraftian feast. H.P. Lovecraft’s: Necronomicon, original title Necronomicon, also called Necronomicon: Book of the Dead or Necronomicon: To Hell and Back. (1993) (Thank you Wikipedia). Now this is obviously the most logical place to begin with my Lovecraftian article. In this film H.P. Lovecraft (Jeffrey Combs) gains access to the mysterious Necronomicon. He delves ever deep into its haunting pages as a myriad of ghastly stories play out before his eyes. If you adore Lovecraft then this is a film worthy of your collection. It simply oozes horror. Re-Animator (1985) This is […]

Bloody Shark Films

I enjoy killer-shark films. To be honest, I enjoy anything that pits stupid swimming humans against vicious slaughtering water beasts. It’s just a shame the humans tend to come out on top. Well, one day we’ll have a film in which EVERYONE that goes into the water gets eaten! Until then we’ll simply have to watch some wonderful killer-seafood movies. 47 Meters Down. (2017) Right, so we’ll start with the latest in killer-shark films. Welcome to 47 Meters Down. (Just ignore the Meg still on the trailer. -Ed). In this film, two morons end up trapped inside a shark cage some 47 meters underwater. (They should have just sent them a goodly length of rope.) There they are assaulted by […]

DAGON (Classic Film Review)

 

 “”We shall swim out to that brooding reef in the sea and dive down through black abysses to Cyclopean and many columned Y’ha-nthlei, and in that lair of the Deep Ones we shall dwell amidst wonder and glory for ever.” – H.P. Lovecraft. I adore Lovecraft. Have I told you that already? I probably have. But it is true. I adore Lovecraft. I personally think that he was the best horror/sci-fi short story writer of the 20th century. His work has inspired so many writers, musicians, game makers, and film creators -and will continue to do so for ages to come. Now today we look at one of the most interesting films inspired by this brilliant man. Today we look […]

Paul Johnson and The About Last Night’s: Give Up The Ghost (Album Review)

 

 There are few things in this world that kick and punch with sounds like American Rock music. It’s personal. It’s powerful. It’s rebellious. This is “Give Up The Ghost” by the amazing Paul Johnson and The About Last Night’s. The songs on this EP pack a kick from start to finish. It’s a wonderful thing to listen to such brilliantly written, constructed and executed music. Underachiever Burn It Down American Story (Adrenaline) Hollywood Missing You (Digital Only Bonus Track) Each and every song on this album whets the appetite. There is a strength on this album that, in many ways, dwarfs the strength of many full-length albums I’ve heard over the years. It’s astonishing. Bottom line “Give Up The Ghost” is […]

Karkaos: Children of The Void (Album Review)

 

 The madness! The madness! Oh, how I adore it. The world is aflame, and hordes of undead Vikings are looting the local mall. It’s Armageddon and WW3 made Metal. This is Karkaos, with their latest offering to the gods of chaos and madness “Children of The Void“. The songs on this 12 track album are pretty much as savage as you’d expect them to be. They kick, scream and flail out in all directions. It’s rather threatening, and more than a little arousing. Babel Skymaster Kolossos Let The Curtain Fall Pale Children Of The Void Rêverie Tyrants Where Mushrooms Grow Lightbearer The Beast Bound By Stars Each and every song on this album is an assault on all the senses; […]

JIBE: Epic Tales of Human Nature (Album Review)

 

 There is something beautiful about the gruff and eternal sound of Hard-Rock music. This is JIBE with the amazing “Epic Tales of Human Nature“. The songs on this 13 track album are pretty bloody good. There is a nice mix of aggressive drumming, intense fingering (Stop sniggering. -Ed) and powerful lyrics that are the embodiment of Rock! Children Of The Sun Broken City The Human Condition 1 Release Girl On A Hill A Shadow In The Garden Change We’ve Only Just Begun Don’t Give It All Away Waiting Best I Ever Had Sanctuary Bravery Songs such as ‘Girl On A Hill‘ and ‘Sanctuary‘ and ‘Children Of The Sun‘ are exactly what the Rock scene thrives upon: pure, unadulterated music that […]

Fire From The Gods: Narrative Retold (Album Review)

 

 Once again the office is on fire. This seems to be a weekly occurrence. This time however, the madness is not caused by my inability to consume alcohol and use firelighters at the same time, but instead, it’s caused by the power of music. This is the amazing Fire From The Gods with their latest offering to the gods of chaos, “Narrative Retold“. The songs on this 13 track album come hurtling at the universe from the deepest part of Purgatory. It’s chaos and insanity made flesh. It’s disorder and control united. It’s pure bloody metal. The Voiceless The Taste Public Enemy End Transmission Excuse Me Composition Evolve Pretenders Diversion In Spite Of Doubt Lifeline Into The Blue Excuse Me […]

72 hours and already into live music

 

 I have now been upon England’s green and asphalt covered land for a little over 72 hours. It’s wonderful to be home. (Dover. South-East England to be exact. -Ed) Before me stands a glorious countryside, magnificent cliffs, and a myriad of historic buildings; and within each of these locales a million adventures await to be lived. It’s a fantastic thing to stand in the centre of a small town knowing that there is a plethora of unique and interesting entertainments available within walking distance. Case in point, on Sunday night -while the sun was still up at 9pm- I indulged in a little sojourn at one of the local pubs. (Local pubs! What a statement! We have no pubs in […]

Divinity: The Immortalist (Album Review)

 

 Once again my bedroom walls are on fire. Well, yes, I did get absolutely ass-holed last night; so much so that I awoke this morning with a police woman’s helmet, and a rubber traffic cone in my bed. But that is neither here nor there. What is there, is the fact that my walls are burning and my speakers are spewing out a barrage of powerful Metal. (Perhaps that is somehow related. -Ed) This is “The Immortalist” the latest offering to the gods of Metal, from Divinity. The songs on this 12 track album are about as Metal as any songs I’ve ever heard. It’s the antitheses of rebellion, chaos and feral disorder. Manhunt Atlas Hallowed Earth D M T […]
