Unexplained Confidential: X-47B-Files‏

x47b_front

UFO sightings reported on the Maryland Beltway late Tuesday night turned out to be a Military drone. This was an 82 ft long aircraft that looked very much like your traditional UFO, being transported on the back a flatbed truck from West Virginia to the Patuxent River Naval Air Station. Maryland State Police were flooded with phone calls from concerned citizens wanting to know what this unidentified object was traveling down I-495.

Vampire Movie Favourites

When I asked Horror News readers and Facebook friends to tell me their favourite vampire films, I received a terrific response. The suggestions poured in, and all kinds of weird, wonderful and outlandish films fronted up for selection. So while I can’t deny the quality or appeal of films like Planet Of The Vampires (1965), Count Yorga Vampire (1970), Vampyres (1974) or Shadow Of The Vampire (2000), I can only count it … Continue reading

Invasions Of The Body Snatchers

Invasion Of The Body Snatchers 1956 poster 3

In 1955 author Jack Finney published a novel entitled The Body Snatchers, first serialised in Collier’s Magazine the year before. It describes the fictional town of Santa Mira, California being invaded by seeds that have drifted to Earth from space. The seeds replace sleeping people with perfect physical duplicates grown from plantlike pods, while their human victims turn to dust. The duplicates live only five years, and they cannot sexually reproduce. Consequently, … Continue reading

Stephen King’s Favourite Horror Films

SK Evil Dead 1

(as stated in a 1992 interview):

LADY IN A CAGE (1964)
Lady in a Cage is a classic film that few people in the modern generations are aware of. It was one of the few actual films directed by Walter Garuman, who spent the vast majority of his career doing television work. The film was not a major hit, but remains something of an underground spectacle to this day. The story … Continue reading

Video Nasties

video-nasties

‘Video Nasty‘ was a term coined in Britain around 1982 which applied to certain films distributed on video cassette that were criticised by the media and various religious organisations for their violent content. While cinema violence had been regulated by the British Board of Film Censorship for many years, the lack of regulations for video sales (combined with the claim that any film could be viewed by impressionable kiddies) sparked a massive … Continue reading

Honestly, I would still be keeping to myself but since I keep getting asked for my opinion by related and unrelated parties, I will go into here and let it be the end of it.

I am ALL for a good debate on issues between people who feel … Continue reading

George Lucas – A Feature Profile

GL George Lucas art

In 1964 a short skinny kid entered film school at the University of Southern California, and fifteen years later he was a multi-millionaire. He was still skinny and shy back then. His name is George Lucas and, for a time, it looked as if his first feature film, THX 1138 (1971) was going to be his last. It was produced by George’s friend Francis Ford Coppola as part of the output of … Continue reading

Exclusive Interview Slipknot’s Corey Taylor and Shawn Crahan

Corey Taylor, Dai Green, David Hess (2009)

I have been debating if I should put up a edited version of the 2 hour DARKEST HOUR podcast show that Corey and Shawn of SLIPKNOT came on but the more I listened to it, the more I knew that pretty much everything they said was gold. Here you will find the complete, unedited, bloopers included, and very informative show. If I had to categorize this in anyway, it would be just simply ‘awesome’.

Anthology Television Part 1

AT1 Montage 3

An anthology television series is a program that presents a different story with a different set of characters in each episode. These normally have different actors each week but some employed a permanent ensemble of actors who would appear in a different drama each week (like Four Star Playhouse). Others would have different actors and stories set in the same ‘shared world’ (like Welcome To Paradox). Many anthology shows would have a … Continue reading

Key Genre Films 1980s

1980s-montage-2

How things have changed. In the forties, for instance, one would find it difficult to name twenty good genre films of the decade but, since the late seventies, Hollywood has learned that their baby-booming audiences could not only handle strong horror and science fiction concepts, they craved them. Filmmakers everywhere went into overdrive. Like television today, there wasn’t a production house around that didn’t have at least one genre project in the making.
