Elvira: Mistress Of The Dark (1988)  (Blu-ray film review)

I haven’t seen ‘Elvira: Mistress Of The Dark’ for some time. Now with its blu-ray release, I’ll be watching it four times, as three of them contain audio commentaries. Unlike the Americans, we British only really came across Elvira originally in this film and the Marvel magazine, so we didn’t know much about her other […]

The Quanderhorn Xperimentations by Rob Grant & Andrew Marshall (book review).

Like other great comedy Science Fiction novels before it, ‘The Quanderhorn Xperimentations’ is based on a BBC Radio series or, at least so the cover of the book says, though it also claims to have travelled back in time to be written before it occurred and also possibly to be a true story, so who […]

Just in case you don’t know, its three stars were Vincent Price, Peter Lorre and Boris Karloff with Hazel Court, Olive Sturges and Jack Nicholson in supporting roles. It was one of the […]

Everything Sucks! (new Netflix comedy: think Stranger Things without monsters).

Here’s the first trailer for another new series from Netflix, this one – Everything Sucks! – following the rites of passage of some AV Club geeks as they navigate retro 1990s High School in the USA. So, basically Stranger Things sans the dimensional Cthulhu-lite monsters, then? Looks good, though. We’ll fire up the 16k modem […]
