Devil May Cry 5 Leaked On Voice Actor’s Resume

Voice actor Nils Hognestad his listed Devil May Cry 5 on his resume, launching a tidal wave of speculation and rumor as to what Capcom has in store for fans of the beloved series. Hodnestad is listed as the lead role, meaning that he will be replacing Tim Phillipps as the voice of Dante.

Ninja Theory, the developer behind 2013’s reboot DmC: Devil May Cry, stated that they were not involved in the making of a sequel years ago. With no word from Capcom, some were worried about the potential future of the series, but Hognestad’s resume seems to indicate not only that the IP still lives, but that Capcom intends on a return to form for DmC.

‘Lemon Tree Passage’ (2014) review

Reviewed by Jesse Miller

MoreHorror.com

Lemon Tree Passage is an Australian Horror-Thriller that is set around the local ghost story that goes like this: A tormented biker that was struck and killed in a hit and run now apparently haunts the backroads of a small Australian town.

Three American Backpackers, Maya (Jessica Tovey), Amelia (Pippa Black) and Sam (Nicholas Gunn), meet a couple of Aussie larrikins, Geordie (Tim Phillips) and Oscar (Andrew Ryan), that recite the spooky urban legend to the trio and off they all go to test the theory. Unsurprisingly, horror ensues.

Lemon Tree Passage starts off strong. There’s a few good scares, the cast are all particularly strong and the atmosphere is quite effective, due to some superb cinematography.

The problem comes later as the story progresses. The plot developments come off feeling more than a little silly and contrived, dispensing of the great atmosphere
