Mirror Of Dreams by Tim White (book review).

Sometimes, I look at my artbook collection and wonder if any SF artist I like has been particularly quiet to see what they are doing now or any books showing their art that I’ve missed. In the case of Tim White, the latter falls into place with this 1994 book, ‘Mirror Of Dreams’. That’s quite […]

Nightmare City Special Edition (1980) (Blu-ray/DVD film review).

‘Nightmare City’ is a horror film from 1980 which has become a cult classic. Directed by the prolific Italian filmmaker Umberto Lenzi, the film was one of many made to capitalise on the popularity of zombie movies in the aftermath of George A. Romero’s second film, ‘Dawn Of The Dead’ (1978). It is cited as […]

Blood Punch (2015) a film review by Mark R. Leeper.

‘Breaking Bad’ made the world of methamphetamine dealing seem strange and fantastic. That is nothing compared to what ‘Blood Punch’ does with it. This is a crime, drug, dark-comedy, romance, horror and Science Fiction thriller. There are far too few of those around. A failed chemical engineer is given an opportunity to make himself very […]

Ghosteria Volume Two: The Novel Zircons May Be Mistaken by Tanith Lee (book review).

Ghost stories have been around since humans sat around fires in the winter and were haunted by the shadows cast by the flickering flames. There is a fine tradition for these stories, especially in the Victorian era when exponents such as M.R. James and his contemporaries made the popular press. As shadows have been chased […]

Ash vs Evil Dead trailer 2.

And here’s the new trailer for the upcoming STARZ Original TV series Ash vs Evil Dead – not so much tongue in cheek, as tongue ripped out of cheek. But hey, nobody can do laconic darkness-slaying like Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell!

Walking Dead Season 6: trailer dead on arrival?

We hope that the 6th series of Walking Dead isn’t adequately represented by this suck-worthy teaser trailer that does very little but remind us who is still alive – which wouldn’t be such a problem if they didn’t have a fatality rate worse than the trenches on the first day of the Somme (as in World War […]

Eyes Without A Face (1960) Blu-ray/DVD film review.

From France and made in 1960, ‘Eyes Without A Face’ is a classic black and white horror film directed by Georges Franju. While the plot is deceptively simple, the telling of the tale casts dark shadows which permeate not only the movie but others in the future. Such was its influence on subsequent directors and […]

Monster Mash: The Creepy, Kooky Monster Craze In America: 1957-1972 by Mark Voger (book review).

The title ‘Monster Mash: The Creepy, Kooky Monster Craze In America: 1957-1972’ gives away what this book by Mark Voger is about. It’s just a shame, it has such a rubbish cover, even if it is an illustration of a Don Post mask, which I’m sure would put off readers who would really enjoy the […]

Weirder Shadows Over Innsmouth edited by Stephen Jones (book review).

This is another collection of Lovecraft homage, a cottage industry in the horror genre. Getting Lovecraftian stories published seems to be relatively easy nowadays, like shooting fish in a barrel. Before getting to the text, I want to mention the fine ink lines on the splendid illustrations by Randy Broecker. They reminded me of the […]
