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

WIN Umberto Lenzi’s ALMOST HUMAN on BluRay, courtesy of Shameless Films!

The lovely folks over at Shameless Films have given us a BluRay of Umberto Lenzi’s ALMOST HUMAN to give away (sorry, guys, UK readers only).

Maestro of mayhem Umberto Lenzi (CANNIBAL FEROX, OASIS OF FEAR) takes you on a tour of Italy’s mean streets in this hyper-violent, white-knuckle 1970s crime classic. For the first time ever on Blu-ray, Shameless proudly presents Almost Human…restored, uncut and unhinged!

Tomas Milian stars as Giulio Sacchi, a sadistic petty crook who aspires to criminal greatness. With his gang of impressionable weirdos in tow, Sacchi kidnaps the pretty young daughter of a wealthy businessman but hardboiled cop Grandi (the one-and-only Henry Silva – ESCAPE FROM THE BRONX) is in hot pursuit. The dogged detective is all that stands between Sacchi’s gang and the ransom money, and he’s the only hope their teenage hostage has got…

Almost Human is a notoriously nasty crime thriller, a cult serving for cognoscenti, with a stand-out score from Ennio Morricone, presented for the first time ever in glorious HD and restored from original vault materials. If you like your cops proper badass, and your villains ever badder psychos, this is the one high-octane, edge-of-the-seat experience you cannot miss!

To win it, email your name to, with Almost Human in the subject line. The winner will be randomly chosen and contacted for their postal address.

The competition will close at midnight on May 9th, 2017.

Almost Human is available from Shameless Films here –

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. Its tale of two young American tourists coming face-to-teeth with a legendary lycanthropic beast perfectly married a genuinely funny script with razor sharp editing, groundbreaking special effects and a flawless cast to create a monster movie that is still many people’s benchmark today Read on...
