The Zombie Times, March 2014 issue (emag review).

I’m impressed to find out that 2014 marks a decade since the creators of ‘The Zombie Times’, Terror4fun, were set up. After ten years of bringing us zombie mayhem, you might think they’d want to take a break but not a bit of it. They’re planning a big birthday issue in August and, in the […]

Lost Girl Season 3 DVD boxset (DVD review).

The first season was mediocre, the second was good and the third season which we review here is really good! That said, ‘Lost Girl’, the Canadian supernatural drama, just seems to get better and better. For those of you who do not know what ‘Lost Girl’ is all about, it’s centred around a succubus by […]

Almost Human (2013) (film review by Frank Ochieng)

Writer-director-photographer Joe Begos certainly shows a passion for low budget horror flicks, particularly the variety from the 1980s where these vintage frightfests were cheaply made gross productions but rich in guilty pleasure gore. In fact, ‘Almost Human’ (not to be confused or mistaken for the Fox-TV show of the same name) is set in the late 1980s […]

Timeless (The Parasol Protectorate: Book Five) by Gail Carriger (book review).

‘Timeless’ is the fifth and final book in ‘The Parasol Protectorate’ series. But don’t worry there are two other series of books set in the same world, one of them set slightly prior to the this series called ‘The Finishing School’ series and the other being set many years after both these series called ‘The […]

Odd Thomas (2014) (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

Stephen Sommers writes, produces, and directs his adaptation of Dean Koontz’s novel of the same name. ‘Odd Thomas’ sees dead people. He also sees invisible demons. And he acts as detective for the dead. Only the really susceptible need fear Old Thomas. Sommers’s film is nominally horror, though not very frightening. It turns into a […]
