Bruce Campbell to star in Sam Raimi’s EVIL DEAD TV Series !!

edaBruce Campbell to star in Sam Raimi’s EVIL DEAD TV Series !!

The next Evil Dead announcement I always expected (or should I say wished for) was the Army of Darkness 2.

BUT on Friday at San Diego Comic Con Sam Raimi announced during a Q&A that he , his brother Ivan and Bruce Campbell were working on an Evil Dead TV Series.

Then Bruce Campbell actually replied on twitter to a fan , and announced that he was going to be starring in the series! Wow can’t wait for this!!

With the success of The Walking Dead then the idea of Evil Dead on the small screen seems like a no-brainer , and lets hope this will then see a tie-in and we can have more ED on the big screen too!

The Mugshots – ‘Love, Lust and Revenge’ EP review

mugband2The Mugshots
“Love, Lust and Revenge”

The Mugshots are a band who don’t sound like your typical horror-themed band. I guess, technically, they’re not. They’re more a band who play rock and roll with a dark twist. The classic rock influence is so heavy on this album, I have no doubt you could convince any number of people that this is a remastered reissue of a “forgotten” album.

The Mugshots did something with this EP that so many other bands today don’t do. They put the time and effort (and, likely, money) into hooking up with a producer who knows what he’s doing and recorded at a real studio. Most bands figure, “hey, I’ve got some recording gear. Let’s just do this ourselves.” A big percentage of these bands don’t know the first thing about how to make it not sound like a crappy, local band’s recording.

The band enlisted Dick Wagner as producer. Wagner has contributed to songs with the likes of Kiss, Hall and Oates, Peter Gabriel and more. He’s most known for playing guitar with Lou Reed and Alice Cooper in the 70′s. … Continue reading

Mad Max: Fury Road – Trailer Revealed at SDCC 2014 ! Read for info and watch trailer here!

Mad Max - Tom Hardy PosterMad Max: Fury Road Trailer Revealed!

At the Comic-Con convention in San Diego, California over the weekend, we finally got our eyes on the long awaited trailer for “Mad Max: Fury Road”!

This will be the first Mad Max film in the franchise that doesn’t star Mel Gibson in the title role. That in itself was a huge disappointment for this long time Mad Max fan; but looking at the trailer Tom Hardy seems to bring the character of Mad Max to life rather well so far! Tom is most recently known for playing Bane in the Batman film, “The Dark Knight Rises”. “Mad Max: Fury Road” also stars: Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nathan Jones, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. The film is directed by George Miller. George directed all three films in the franchise: “Mad Max”, “Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior”, and “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdone”. George wrote “Mad Max: Fury Road” along with Nick Lathouris and Brendan McCarthy

Mel Gibson was offered the opportunity to reprise his role as Mad Max but he declined saying he felt he … Continue reading

“Sasha Milosevic is a wealthy young businessman form L.A. who receives an inheritance from his homeland of Serbia, following his grandfather’s death. Unwillingly he decides to go back to the Country after 18 years of separation and cut all the ties with it where he decides to buy a derelict house in the woods and convert it into a holiday resort, only to find out that the estate was used by the Nazi soldiers to perpetuate tortures and murders during WWII.

Sasha eventually stumbles into stories of ghosts and eventually meets Jasmina, an old childhood friend: she wants Sasha to ditch the idea of buying the house in the woods, telling him more terrifying ghost stories linked to it.

The Phantom of The Opera (1962) DVD Review

 

PHANTOM 001THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1962) DVD

Directed By: Terence Fisher

Written By: Anthony Hinds

Starring: Herbert Lom, Heather Sears, Edward de Souza, Michael Gough

UK Certification: PG

RRP: £12.99

Running Time: 80 minutes

Distributor: Final Cut Entertainment

UK Release Date: 21st July 2014

It was only a few weeks back that I became aware of Hammer’s adaptation of the iconic Gaston Leroux novel as it formed part of a double bill with a title I reviewed last month – Captain Clegg (1962). A glance at the contributors pretty much triggers instant salivation as in the director’s chair we have Terence Fisher – the company’s most lauded director who called action on such films as The Curse of Frankenstein (1957) and Horror of Dracula (1958) as well as countless others. Scripting duties meanwhile fell to Tony Hinds who by the late 70s had penned 15 Hammer pictures including The Curse of the Werewolf (1961) and The Evil of Frankenstein (1964).

Following Universal’s 1943 version of Phantom that featured Claude Rains as the titular character, the studio … Continue reading

An Interview with David Dittlinger by Dave Wain

An Interview with David Dittlinger by Dave Wain

I wish I could un-watch the last 75 minutes of my life, but most of all I wish I could just make something like this disappear”. (Dave Wain – UKHS)

When the low budget DVD release of The Factory made its way into my player the other week I was pretty damning about it. So much so that after nearly 200 film reviews for UKHorrorScene.com it became the first film that received a zero rating from me. Imagine my surprise then when the producer of the movie, having read my review, wanted to set up an interview to discuss the movies production. I thought this could well get nasty! How wrong I was – it was a pleasure to speak to David Dittlinger, and the following interview underlines the old adage that no-one sets out to make a bad movie.

UKHS – Can you describe your background in the film industry for me? Is producing something that has always appealed to you?

DD – I personally didn’t have much of a background, Dave.  I grew up in a small town where there wasn’t even a dream of working in the industry.  But … Continue reading
