Cathedrals will fall, the river will run red... and THE BIRD will be SLAUGHTERED!


The Blue Took’s: Horns

I like Alexandre Aja. He first came to my attention with High Tension/Switchblade Romance in 2003, an excellent, intense, gory horror that split viewers down the middle because of its fucked-up climax. The Hills Have Eyes remake in 2006 ALSO… Continue reading


Jordan returns to familiar territory.

Being a huge fan of Neil Jordan I was extremely excited to see ‘Byzantium’ as he was returning to the vampire genre that fitted him so well back in 1994 with ‘Interview with the Vampire’.… Continue reading

Dave Cliffe’s: Horns

“It takes a man to make a devil”, said American Congregationalist, Henry Ward Beecher. Which I think is quite fitting for Daniel Radcliffe’s venture into post-Potter territory, in that he is finally showing his true range of abilities as a… Continue reading

Willow Creek

I’ve promised myself dozens of times over the last few years that I’d stop watching “found footage” horrors. I’m a sucker for a great poster, a cleverly worded synopsis or smart marketing campaign, and all too often it leads me… Continue reading

INTERVIEW: David Naughton
untitled It’s not every day you get to speak to the lead actor in possibly your favourite horror film of all time. Especially on a Tuesday. Tuesdays are usually rubbish! David Naughton should need no introduction to horror fans. Back in 1981, An American Werewolf In London had unprepared cinema goers laughing heartily one second and jumping out of their seats in terror the next.
