Just when you thought it was safe to go out, the rampaging turkey has returned more deadly than ever and just in time for American Thanksgiving! The original ‘Thankskilling’ movie, made by college students Jordan Downey and Kevin Stewart, cost only $3500 but it was a smash hit nonetheless, mainly on the old adage that […]

Universal Horrors: The Studio’s Classic Films, 1931-1946 by Tom Weaver, Michael Brunas and John Brunas (book review).

I never saw the first edition of Tom Weaver, Michael Brunas and John Brunas’ book, ‘Universal Horrors: The Studio’s Classic Films, 1931-1946’ so don’t know how much it was revised and updated. As it focuses on 85 Universal horror films from the pre-1950s, one can only assume further other tit-bits of information and critiques cropped […]

Cabinet Of Curiosities: My Notebooks, Collections And Other Obsessions by Gullermo Del Toro (book review).

The one thing that is most obvious from director Gullermo Del Toro’s book ‘Cabinet Of Curiosities: My Notebooks, Collections And Other Obsessions’ is that he’s a bona fide geek. Then considering that Jim Cameron is also a geek and writes the introduction about his pal, this shouldn’t be surprising. In other words, he’s one of […]

‘Plague Nation’, the second in the ‘Ashley Parker’ series picks up right where ‘Plague Town’ left off.
