WHAT’S LEFT OF US

Axel, Jonathan and Ana are the last three, living together in a claustrophobic bunker in a post-apocalyptic hell. Outside is a perilous and unknown landscape filled with the undead and in order to survive, they must scavenge and hunt for food and supplies. Soon all sorts of human emotions start to form: love, anger, and hatred for one another. But most important of all, they must learn to live together. To hold on to their sanity, they capture and lock up one of the undead for interrogation and Ana has invented ‘the therapy room’, a place for them to record their confessions.

What’s Left Of Us is a gripping and terrifying imagining of three people holding on to sanity, safety, and all they have left.

Chastity Bites (2013) DVD Review

cb1CHASTITY BITES (2013) DVD Review

Dir- John V. Knowles

Starring- Allison Scagliotti, Francia Raisa, Louise Griffiths, Eduardo Rioseco

UK DVD Release 20th April 2015 from Safecracker Pictures.

John V. Knowles’ CHASTITY BITES updates the legend of Countess Elizabeth Bathory, the infamous and sadistic serial killing female who sacrificed many young virginal girls and bathed in their blood, in the belief that it would gain her eternal youth, and has taken this myth into the arena of the modern American high school, a place besieged by rampant hormones, clique groups and social politics of the classroom.

Leah (Scagliotti) is an aspiring journalist, feminist and social outclass, looked down upon by the popular bimbo clique of girls, yet still smart enough and clever to know what’s wrong with most things around her. This is put to the test when a mysterious female, Liz Batho (Griffiths), turns up at the high school offering her services to the parents to promote an abstinence group called V.A.G (Virginity Action Group), promoting chastity, to the pupils.

At first the clique of the popular girls join the cause, and soon Leah’s only friend, Katharine (Raisa) starts being drawn … Continue reading

The Comedy of Terrors (1963) Blu-Ray Review

cot1Title: The Comedy of Terrors (1963)

Directed by: Jacques Tourneur

Written by: Richard Matheson

Starring: Vincent Price, Peter Lorre, Boris Karloff

Running time: 84 minutes

UK release: Re-released on Dual Format DVD & Blu-Ray 16th February 2015 by Arrow Video

Recently we’ve been lucky enough to get a slew of really good horror-comedys. We’ve had ‘Tucker and Dale vs Evil’, ‘Tusk’ and ‘What we do in the Shadows’(which absolutely destroyed the competition at the festivals) to name but three.

So it’s a good time to look back at the funny-scarys of yesteryear. And what better place to start than the aptly named ‘The Comedy of Terrors’? Vincent Price plays Waldo Trumbell, an unscrupulous undertaker in a town where people are just refusing to die. Now this is a problem for Waldo, because his failed-opera-singer wife (Joyce Jameson) is pestering. And pestering. And pestering. So with the help of his assistant (the inimitable Peter Lorre), Waldo decides to go around town and drum up some business, lining graves as well as their pockets.

Now I’ll hold my hands up and admit it; I’d never seen this movie before. In fact, I didn’t … Continue reading

The ScriptThe Script – Live – Motorpoint Arena, Sheffield 28th February 2015 – Gig Review

Support: Tinie Tempah

Saturday, 28th February 2015

Irish rock band The Script hit Sheffield big time last Saturday with one hell of a performance. The trio, singer Danny O’Donoghue, guitarist Mark Sheehan and drummer Glen Power wowed fans from start to finish in a packed-out arena.

The concert began with Tinie Tempah. Tinie had replaced Labrinth, who was originally touring with the Irish rock band. Tinie entertained the audience with ‘Written In The Stars’, ‘Pass Out’, ‘Miami to Ibiza’ and ‘Tsunami’. He made a great support act, giving the crowd an energetic and highly entertaining show, which everyone enjoyed.

The Script made their appearance shortly after Tinie left the stage, it was a quick turnaround and I knew the best was yet to come!

The BBFC Bans James Cullen Bressack’s HATE CRIME in the UK

HateCrime-PosterTHE BBFC announced today that HATE CRIME has officially been banned in the UK. It is one of only four horror movies officially refused classification by the BBFC since 2009, the others being Grotesque, The Bunny Game and The Human Centipede 2, later released with nearly 3 minutes of cuts.

HATE CRIME tells the story of a Jewish family, having just arrived in a new neighbourhood, who are recording their youngest son’s birthday celebrations on video when their home is suddenly invaded by a bunch of crystal-meth-crazed neo-Nazi lunatics.  The film is the second feature from director James Cullen Bressack (To Jennifer, Blood Lake, 13/13/13), and has already had a successful release in the US.

The full official statement from the BBFC:

“HATE CRIME focuses on the terrorisation, mutilation, physical and sexual abuse and murder of the members of a Jewish family by the Neo Nazi thugs who invade their home. The physical and sexual abuse and violence are accompanied by constant strong verbal racist abuse. Little context is provided for the violence beyond an on screen statement at the end of the film that the two attackers who escaped were subsequently apprehended and that the one surviving family member was released from captivity. We have … Continue reading
