Don’t expect things to happen the next day with the ‘Phantasm’ films, the third, ‘Lord Of The Dead’ is some years later. Reggie (actor Reggie Bannister) is still chasing after the Tall Man (actor Angus Scrimm), who is systematically killing and empting towns of their dead bodies from their graveyards before making up the number […]

The Boy On The Bridge by M.R. Carey (book review).

Getting back into the swing from Mike Carey’s first novel, ‘The Girl With All The Gifts’, becomes a lot harder with no précis of what happened there. Checking my original notes, there is little to connect to the two stories other than the post-apocalypse reality anyway. However, I really do wish editors and authors paid […]

Phantasm blu-ray boxset : Phantasm II (1988)  (part 2 of 5)  (horror/sf Blu-ray film review)

Just so you keep the numbers straight in your head, this is number two not eleven. There were only ever four ‘Phantasm’ films. The follow-up, again written and directed by Don Coscarelli with pretty much the same cast bar one who got older as the first film was filmed 9 years later. It’s a little […]

Phantasm (1979) blu-ray boxset   (horror Blu-ray review)

When I’m handed a 5 blu-ray set of discs of the ‘Phantasm’, I had to give some thought on how to review them. Doing them all collectively is likely to give a long review and risk being struck by one of the Tall Man’s silver balls in not giving enough care and attention to each […]

Eye On Science Fiction: 20 Interviews With Classic SF And Horror Makers by Tom Weaver (book review).

Just when I thought Tom Weaver wouldn’t have any other books to surprise me, I came across ‘Eye On Science Fiction: 20 Interviews With Classic SF And Horror Makers’ in Eurospan’s back catalogue. Looking at the twenty people interviewed, there are several who worked well into the 60s and 70s, far beyond Weaver’s usual cut-off […]

CAPSULE: ‘Bethany’ is a film of psychological and paranormal horror. A woman who had a painful childhood years before and who suffers from scary visions returns to live in the house she grew up in. She starts having increasingly violent hallucinations. While the film is tightly and tensely shot with some disturbing imagery, the script […]

The Blackcoat’s Daughter (2017) (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

Mysterious goings-on go on at an all-girl Catholic school over winter break. The film is shot with an excess of style that got in the way of the coherence. The freezing setting of upstate New York reaches into the tone of the entire film and even the spirit of the viewer. The ambience is certainly […]
