1 hour ago

Stars: Kristofer Dayne, Steve Aaron-Sipple, Dan Abrams, Lydie Misiek, John R. Walker, Caroline Munro, Honey Holmes, Gary Martin, Dani Thompson | Written by Garry Charles, Andy Davie, Tony Jopia, Kristofer Dayne | Directed by Tony Jopia

If Monty Pythons and the Holy Grail (1975) and Watership Down (1978) taught me anything growing up, if it doesn’t look like it isn’t dressed up to attend the Playboy Mansion, rampant rabbits are dangerous. Tony Jopia takes that premise one step further with his B-Movie creature feature Cute Little Buggers.

When hostile aliens land on earth with the intension of taking over the planet to save their own race, they choose to mutate the local rabbit population. Blending the rabbits with alien DNA, they knowingly unleashed the cute but vicious blood thirsty creatures on the unsuspecting locals. As the butchered bodies starts piling and the rampant rabbits begin to rampage, the locals are forced to »

‘Jim Henson’s Labyrinth’ Board Game Review

3 hours ago

As a child of the 1980’s, I spent a lot of my time recording movies at Christmas on my mum and dad’s Vcr. From blockbusters like Star Wars and Indiana Jones to classics like Oliver, I probably had thirty or forty tapes that I watched over and over, occasionally bumping a bad movie from my collection and recording over it. As a result of this, I have a near perfect recollection of Christmas adverts for Scs, Argos and Toy’s R’ Us, but that’s hardly something I should burden you wish.

One of the movies I had a particular love for was Jim Henson’s Labyrinth. I would fast forward the opening scenes of Sarah faffing about in the rain and arguing with her parents and usually, I’d hit play right around the talking worm scene. I’d skip other scenes too – the masquerade ball for example »

‘Getting Any?’ Blu-ray Review (Third Window)

5 hours ago

Stars: Dankan, Takeshi Kitano, Moeko Ezawa, Hakuryu, Tokie Hidari, Yojin Hino | Written and Directed by Takeshi Kitano

From the acclaimed director Takeshi Kitano (Fireworks, Kikujiro) comes a bizarre, over the top and absurd comedy full of slapstick silliness and never ending gags. A great satire of Japanese society and popular cinema, Getting Any?, embraces the spirit of Kitano s early stand-up and television work and as such it offers a genuine inside look into his true personality.

The story follows the nerdy middle age Asao, a professional daydreamer, whose one and only goal in life is – as the title suggests – to get laid. Asao embarks on a series of slapstick adventures in search of fulfilling his ultimate fantasy – making wild passionate sex with a woman. His holy quest for sex lands Asao in a series of absurd situations, involving robbery schemes, big movie productions, yakuza gang rivalry wars and scientific experiments. »

‘Dan Dare #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

7 hours ago

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Alberto Foche | Published by Titan Comics

When it comes to my comic book reading preferences, I have always been an unashamed fan of American comic books. I read my first Superman story at the age of 6 and never looked back. At that time though, in the late 1970′s, American comic books weren’t always that easy to find, and 2000Ad was a little bit beyond me at first (although that changed in the Eighties ). What I could find however were copies of The Eagle, the now legendary British weekly comic, starring a certain Dan Dare. Sure, he wasn’t quite Superman, who is, but he was to my young eyes pretty cool nonetheless.

Since then I have always had a soft spot for Dan Dare, and when he has periodically been relaunched, and reappeared in various comics and magazines I have usually had a glance. »

Debut trailer for ‘Snake Outta Compton’

9 hours ago

Automatic Entertainment have released of the first trailer for their upcoming film, Snake Outta Compton. The movie is a satire of creature features, urban gangster films, and hip hop culture, from director Hank Braxtan (Chemical Peel) and producers the Kondelik Brothers (Airplane vs. Volcano, All Hallows Eve 2)

Snake Outta Compton sees a rap group on the verge of signing their first record deal forced to battle a giant mutating snake monster that’s terrorizing the streets of Compton… And this isnt a film from The Asylum? Colour me shocked!

Said Automatic Entertainment:

Collaborating with Hank Braxtan and the Kondelik brothers to turn Snake Outta Compton from a ridiculous idea into a reality has been remarkable. This talented group of filmmakers are a joy to work with and their creativity exceeded our expectations for what this film could be and we are excited to finally share it.

Lff 2017: ‘Brigsby Bear’ Review

17 October 2017 10:01 AM, PDT

Review by Matthew Turner

Stars: Kyle Mooney, Mark Hamill, Jane Adams, Greg Kinnear, Matt Walsh, Michaela Watkins, Ryan Simpkins, Alexa Demie, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Claire Danes, Chance Crimin, Beck Bennett, Andy Samberg | Written by Kevin Costello, Kyle Mooney | Directed by Dave McCary

Saturday Night Live alumnus Dave McCary makes his directorial debut with Brigsby Bear, an engaging and smartly judged indie comedy-drama that mixes elements from several different movies but still manages to feel entirely original.

SNL’s Kyle Mooney (who co-wrote the script with Kevin Costello) plays twenty-five year-old James, who grows up in an underground desert bunker with his “parents” Ted (Mark Hamil) and April (Jane Adams). Kyle’s only entertainment is Brigsby Bear, a children’s fantasy TV show about a talking bear who protects the universe and dispenses weekly life lessons like “curiosity is an unnatural emotion” and “trust only the family unit”.

17 October 2017 9:21 AM, PDT

TNT have released the first trailer for their eagerly anticipated series The Alienist, which is based on the Anthony Award-winning international bestseller by Caleb Carr. Set in 1896 amidst a backdrop of vast wealth, extreme poverty and technological innovation, this psychological thriller stars Daniel Brühl (Rush), Luke Evans (The Girl on The Train), Dakota Fanning (American Pastoral) and Brian Geraghty (The Hurt Locker).

The Alienist opens when a series of haunting, gruesome murders of boy prostitutes grips New York City.

They are joined by Sara Howard (Fanning), a headstrong secretary determined to become the city’s first female police detective.

I Spit on Your Grave’s Jamie Bernadette joins ‘N.C.I.S : New Orleans’

17 October 2017 8:41 AM, PDT

Actress Jamie Bernadette (All Girls Weekend, The 6th Friend, Sinbad and the War of the Furies) has made the move from indie cinema to TV, guest starring in NCIS : New Orleans – the NCIS spin-off that chronicles the cases worked in The Big Easy, a city known for its music, entertainment and decadence.

Bernadette made her debut as Callie Tillford, a Russian sleeper agent sent to take out one of her own, in last night’s episode ‘The Asset’. It is expected that CBS will bring the character back, if even to answer all of the questions posed during her debut episode, for an extended arc.

N.C.I.S : New Orleans marks Bernadette’s first prime time network TV credit though she has starred in numerous independent films. Her leading role in the horror film The 6th Friend, which she also produced and co-wrote, has garnered her many »

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×06: Mid-Western Assassin’ Review

17 October 2017 8:01 AM, PDT

What exactly is horror? There seems to be a lot of discussion on that at the moment. This week’s American Horror Story: Cult is an interesting look at a show that built up a fan-base based on horror themes. With all fear removed from the “cult” for the audience though, where is the horror in Mid-Western Assassin?

Starting with an assassination attempt, American Horror Story: Cult takes us into another flashback to events where we see Ally (Sarah Paulson) save Meadow (Leslie Grossman). Seemingly finding her a safe place to stay, Ally then looks for proof of the cult and Ivy’s (Alison Pill) involvement. When her fears are confirmed though, will she be the one holding the gun?

This week’s episode follows the usual theme of being good, and having an interesting plot. The problem is that holes are starting to appear, and that includes spaces where the horror used to be. »

Play Expo Manchester 2017: ‘Raging Justice’ Hands-On

17 October 2017 7:01 AM, PDT

I’ve been playing games for over 30 years, from my very first home computer back in the mid-80, the ZX81, to my current consoles, the PS4 and Nintendo Switch, and in all that time, like may other gamers, I’ve come to know what games I’m good at and what games I’m not. And more importantly, what games I love and what games I hate. If all those years of gaming have taught me anything, its that I absolutely Adore platform games, fighting games, shmups and side-scrolling beat ‘em-ups. I have a vast collection of games from those particular genres ranging across a wide variety of consoles old and new…

And, despite the growing catalogue of new games I have to play, and often to review, I still constantly revisit those titles that shaped my love of those genres. And when it comes to side-scrolling beat ‘em-ups that includes games like Final Fight, »

‘Wolfenstein #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

17 October 2017 6:01 AM, PDT

Written by Dan Watters | Art by Piotr Kowalski, Ronilson Freire | Published by Titan Comics

I think it’s fair to say last issue was a bit of a mixed bag. We had three separate but interlocking stories, all with both relevance to each other and to the upcoming Wolfenstein II game that will be hitting the shelves soon. Though not a cheap cash in by any means, last issue still had to tick a few boxes for the corporate brief I suspect, and Dan Watters did it well. Holding back main character Bj Blazkowicz until the final story was a clever touch too, keeping the anticipation going for most of the book.

So, as you may or not know, Wolfenstein takes place in an alternate world where the Nazis won the war. Bj leads the resistance against The Regime, as the Nazis are now called, but a resistance that is scattered widely. »
