Sherlock Holmes And The White Worm by Sam Siciliano (book review).

‘Sherlock Holmes And The White Worm’ is another example of the insatiable hunger for a story featuring our saturnine pal with a nice line in logic. This is a retelling of ‘The Legend Of The White Worm’, as told in the novel (apparently not very good) by Bram Stoker. This one does not have a […]

Sustenance (a novel of the Count Saint-Germain) by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro (book review).

A well-formed character can be a friend, not only to their creator but to the reader. Both want to continue the dialogue that can be created in a skilfully written series of books. This can also be a handicap. Most characters reside in their own world and, while it is often enjoyable to explore the […]

Zombo: You Smell Of Crime And I’m The Deodorant by Al Ewing and Henry Flint (graphic novel review).

Just before I started writing this review, I noticed on social media that it was the thirty-ninth birthday last week of the British comics institution that is ‘2000AD’. The galaxy’s greatest comic may be best known for the exploits of 22nd century lawman Judge Dredd but it has spawned a huge number of other characters […]

Fierce dogs roaming the countryside with a taste for blood that don’t stop at sheep because they have developed a liking for human flesh. It starts with an elderly farming couple in a remote location of South Australia. First, […]

The Mutilator (1986) (dvd/Blu-ray film review).

Shares in tomato ketchup suppliers must have gone up dramatically during the production of this movie, ‘The Mutilator’, because gallons of it will have been used. With a synopsis entitled, ‘by sword, by pick, by axe, bye bye’, it couldn’t be anything else. From 1986, here we have an outrageous example of gruesome horror. For […]

American Horror Project Vol 1 (horror film DVD/Blu-ray review).

There seems to be a formula here and that is to take three obscure movies from the 70s, movies that haven’t been seen for years, and put them back upfront in a lavish presentation costing over £40. However, you’ve got to think for yourself, why have they not been seen for years? The reason is […]

RKO Radio Pictures Horror, Science Fiction And Fantasy Films, 1929-1956 by Michael R. Pitts (book review).

According to author Michael R. Pitts, film studio RKO Radio Pictures either produced or distributed 140 films between 1929-1956 that belonged to our genre. The distribution bit is important because it also enables him to include Disney’s cartoon films for that period as well. RKO didn’t restrict themselves to distributing English films as they also […]

Angel Of Highgate by Vaughn Entwistle (book review).

‘Angel Of Highgate’ is a prequel to ‘The Revenant Of Thraxton Hall’ which commences the adventure Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Oscar Wilde (yes, I know who would have thunk it). Alas, it does not feature those but explains a little background to Thraxton. It is the story of Lord Geoffrey Thraxton himself. Opening with […]
