As "Game of Thrones" has grown increasingly bold in its departures from George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire," book-readers have found themselves in the unfamiliar position of being surprised: What do you mean, no Lady Stoneheart? And where'd Mance Rayder go all of a sudden? But more and more, those surprises seem to be pleasant ones, to the extent that even some die-hard Martin fans are starting to prefer the TV series to the novels. To judge from the reviews of "Hardhome," the fifth season's eight episode, last night's might have been "Game of Thrones'" most inspired departure yet. In the books, the massive battle is relayed via letter, but the show dropped us right into it via a 15-minute setpiece that was among the most impressive things the show has ever done. Director Miguel Sapochnik is, let's be clear, no Neil Marshall, who managed »

Week nine has come early in Game Of Thrones' fifth season, judging by this blistering and chilling battle episode...
This review contains spoilers.
There's something of a tradition on Game Of Thrones that the ninth episode is the centerpiece of the season, the default finale if you will, with an episode afterwards to pick up the pieces. Ned Stark lost his head in the ninth episode. Tyrion saved King's Landing in the Battle of Blackwater in the ninth episode. The Wildling invasion was repelled by the Night's Watch and the forces of Stannis Barratheon in the ninth episode. It was a nice day for a Red Wedding in the ninth episode. And yet, this is the eighth episode of the season and it's as awesome and crazy and mind-blowing as any action sequence from Neil Marshall could have hoped to be.
I'm not sure why I thought I »

The noughties had Snakes On A Plane, now this decade brings you Werewolves On A Train. The first trailer for Paul Hyett’s Howl has been released and we can reveal it to you exclusively below. More blood less Beatnik, this is not to be confused with the Allen Ginsberg biopic of the same name. This Howl is your average commuter nightmare: train delayed, obstruction on the line, night falls, full moon, werewolves arrive, bloody carnage ensues. And if that doesn’t warrant a partial travelcard refund we don’t know what does. brightcove.createExperiences();Directed by Paul Hyett (who cut his teeth doing effects work on films like of Neil Marshall's The Descent and Doomsday before making his directorial debut with 2012 revenge horror The Seasoning House) the film stars Ed Speleers as a ticket inspector dealing with some unusually hirsute fare-dodgers and co-stars Sean Pertwee and Shauna Macdonald. »
Fresh of news of some new pilot orders and some renewals that made Marvel fans happy last night, now comes some not-so-good news for fans of two genre-leaning shows. Despite clamoring from a small yet loyal fanbase, NBC has opted to cancel the DC Comics adaptation Constantine. The series was developed by David S. Goyer and Daniel Cerone and starred Matt Ryan as the titular demon hunter, but it failed to catch on with audiences or critics in a significant way. The creators retooled the pilot after the show got a series pickup, killing off a character played by Lucy Griffiths who was initially intended to be a supporting character. But even director Neil Marshall couldn’t turn the pilot into something that caught on with look-in viewers, and the ratings dipped in the second episode. There may yet be a sliver of hope, however, as Cerone tweeted the following: »

When it comes to werewolf flicks, there are a few that are almost universally recognized as being the best. There’s of course classics like An American Werewolf in London and The Howling, and if you’re asking me, Neil Marshall’s Dog… Continue Reading →

Great werewolf films are hard to find these days. The lycanthrope playing field is typically filled to the brim with bad CGI transformations and it’s a subgenre that just deserves better. Neil Marshall (The Descent, TV’s Black Sails, Constantine)’s 2002 films, Dog Soldiers, was just that kind of werewolf film that resonated with horror fans, and quickly became somewhat of a cult horror classic.
The gang over at Scream Factory obviously agree, because hitting shelves on June 23rd, is a brand new Collector’s Edition Bluray/DVD combo of the werewolf classic, complete with an extensive amount of brand new special features, and even featuring Marshall’s early short film, Combat.
A group of soldiers dispatched to the Scottish Highlands on special training maneuvers face their biggest fears after they run into Captain Ryan – the only survivor of a Special Ops team that was literally torn to pieces. »

Nearly 13 years ago, a British Army unit discovered what lives in the shadows in Neil Marshall's feature film directorial debut, Dog Soldiers, and this summer Scream Factory is revisiting what that doomed group encountered with their Dog Soldiers Collector’s Edition Blu-ray / DVD. First announced in 2013, the anticipated release has been pushed back more than once to ensure it's the best possible final version. At long last, the beloved werewolf film will come out on June 23rd and it will be well worth the wait, as the newly revealed special features are enough to make horror hounds drool and howl at the moon with pleasure.
Press Release -- "Six Men. Full Moon. No Chance. The terrifying thriller Dog Soldiers gets the Scream Factory treatment with a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack available June 23rd, 2015. Fans who order their copy from ShoutFactory.com will receive an exclusive Dog Soldiers poster, »

The Descent arguably made being stuck underground scary again, with intelligent use of the darkness and just a hint of claustrophobia half of the job of scaring the audience was done before the creatures even made an appearance on screen. Beneath may not want to be compared to Neil Marshall’s movie, but as a fan I can’t help but compare the two.
Beneath may claim it is inspired by true events, but we know that this is a statement that is used as a marketing tool to get attention but means nothing when it comes to historical fact. In the movie we see a crew of coal miners trapped 600 feet below the ground. »

Out of all the Avengers Marvel has mined from its vast catalog of characters, there’s one in particular whose vocal fanbase has decried the comic studio. Why? For not providing her with her own solo movie, that’s why!
Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow (aka Natasha Romanoff) was introduced in Iron Man 2 as Stark’s eye candy assistant before she unleashed her true potential on the hallway of Goons at the Hammer factory. Her Romanoff resume is steadily increasing, but not on account of her own standalone ventures. She’s appeared in Iron Man and Captain America’s solo pics, and kicked major Chitauri butt with them in The Avengers. So, will she ever get her own movie?
In another of Collider’s interviews with the Avengers, Johansson reveals that the idea of a Black Widow movie isn’t as far from Marvel’s minds as we might »

We love a good horror here at Thn and were rather impressed with new release Dark Summer. The film stars It Follows actor Keir Gilchrist as Daniel, a teenage boy whose obsession with female classmate Mona. His obsession with her leads to some very dark places, including Mona’s death and being placed under house arrest for the summer. It is then that he realises that he is not alone, someone or something is haunting him, and he has no place to run.
Playing Mona is up-and-coming young actress Grace Phipps. Phipps started her career in the David Tennant starring Fright Night before going onto a regular role in American television show The Nine Lives of Chloe King. This was followed with a recurring stint on the phenomenally successful The Vampire Diaries. Then she landed a role in the newest Disney craze Teen Beach Movie. In-between Teen Beach and it’s sequel, »
