Dai-Green[1]

Dearest friends and colleagues,

Unfortunately, we are having to discuss censorship once again as another one of our … Continue reading

Dai Of The Dead: You’ve missed me, you’ve REALLY missed me!!

Casey and OJ

But now … Continue reading

I know this isn’t exactly horror but it IS a really important case to watch for all actors and film makers alike.

Victor Whitmill is suing Warner Bros. over his copyrighted tattoo design/work being shown in the film without his expressed permission and asked a judge to delay the theatrical release. The judge denied his request, due to the financial blow WB would take, but also stated that she felt Whitmill has a foot to … Continue reading

I thought I had completely exhausted all I had to say about the controversy surrounding A SERBIAN FILM on February 21, 2011 edition of THE GASH until I read an article that spread like wild fire about a man being criminally charged for showing the film at his festival.
Angel Sala, who runs the Sitges film festival in Spain, was arrested for “Exhibition Of Child P*rnography” during the Sitges festival in October … Continue reading
