‘Anno Dracula 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem #3′ Review

25 May 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Kim Newman | Art by Paul McCaffrey | Published by Titan Comics

This has been great fun so far, a nice blend of interesting story, familiar though slightly different literary characters, and a whole load of alternate universe world building. Hugely entertaining stuff. This series pretty much had me at Queen Victoria marrying Count Dracula. What’s not to love? I have been waiting though for the Council of the Seven Days, and specifically our heroine Kate Reed, to really develop into living, breathing characters. Up to now they have seemed more like ploy devices at times, albeit very enjoyable plot devices.

So where were we? Well, The Council was attacked by Count Dracula’s Grey Men. Most escaped, with the help of Fah Lo Suee and the criminal Limehouse Ring, though Monday and Thursday were captured. The Limehouse Ring want Kate to use her old friend Penelope Churchward to »

The White Princess' Patrick Gibson Previews Henry's Worst Nightmare

13 May 2017 12:50 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

A character known as “The Boy” shows up and claims to be long-lost royalty in this week’s The White Princess, and no one — not even Patrick Gibson, the actor who plays him — knows whether he’s telling the truth.

If you’ve kept up with Starz’s historical drama, you know that Edward and Richard — the younger brothers of main character Lizzie, and heirs to the throne of England — went missing as children after their mother, Elizabeth of Woodville, sent them away in an attempt to keep them safe from vengeful Tudors.

Stop frothing, royalists – King Charles III is the boldest BBC show of the year

10 May 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Diana’s ghost, Camilla slapping the prince, Kate as Lady Macbeth … people have been outraged by the BBC’s potentially treasonous new drama. But after watching, the response should be more ‘hooray’ than ‘off with their heads!’

Some newspaper coverage ahead of the BBC2 screening of King Charles III – a drama imagining a brief and catastrophic reign for the current Prince of Wales – gave the impression that Lord Hall of Birkenhead, the BBC director-general, should be held in the Tower of London awaiting execution for treason. But the summons he seems more likely to get is to next year’s Bafta TV awards, where the BBC will surely be honoured for one of its boldest drama commissions.

Some Tory politicians and royal biographers had frothed about the content of a piece that includes shots of Elizabeth II’s funeral procession; the ghost of Diana, Princess of Wales, speaking prophecies to »

HeyUGuys join The Night’s Watch for Game of Thrones Season 7 & you can too!

1 May 2017 2:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: David Sztypuljak

A couple of weeks ago we were lucky enough to be invited along to a rather special event as Sky Atlantic gave us the chance to join the Night’s Watch in celebration of Game of Thrones season 7 coming back our screens on Monday July 17th at both 2am (to simulcast with the Us) and 9pm later that evening.

Hosting the event were Game of Thrones Weapons Master Tommy Dunne (who has also worked on movies including Gladiator, Saving Private RyanBlood Diamond,  & The Bourne Ultimatum to name but a few) and Stunt Coordinator Rowley Irlam (whose CV is just as impressive and includes Casino Royale, Captain America, Thor, Guardians of the Galaxy, SkyfallCaptain Phillips and many more) who would be putting us through our paces using both the sword and the bow.

‘Anno Dracula 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem #2′ Review

26 April 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Kim Newman | Art by Paul McCaffrey | Published by Titan Comics

The first issue of the Anno Dracula 1895 comic series, from the mind of Kim Newman, threw in enough ideas and concepts to fill a dozen issues of most other series. I say ‘new’, but the series grew out of Kim Newman’s Anno Dracula world he has been building through his novels. In what has become a familiar genre now, Newman creates his own fictional stories using real world people and events, but always with a twist. Queen Victoria marrying Count Dracula for example, or Jack the Ripper murdering prostitutes because they were actually vampires. A lot of clever ideas bobbing around gave me extremely high hopes for this 5 part series.

Very tough to give a complete summary of last issue if you missed it, but essentially Count Dracula has been in control of The British Empire for 10 years, »

Need to catch up? Check out the previous The White Princess recap here. 

When an outbreak of plague* is the best thing that happens to you, you are experiencing some rough times, indeed.

Yet in an episode of The White Princess in which Elizabeth and her mother are put under house arrest, Henry is stabbed and Teddy is thrown in the Tower of London, a little sweating sickness seems like manna from heaven.

How can this be? Read on for the highlights of “Hearts and Minds.”

*Yes, I know it’s not actually the plague. But because Ned mentions it in the episode, »

Princess Charlotte Is Cashing In With Adorable Pink and Purple Merchandise

5 April 2017 1:21 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Princess Charlotte should open a savings account! The Historic Royal Palaces Shop, an independent charity that looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, the Banqueting House, Kensington Palace, Kew Palace and Hillsborough Castle, has released a new set of merchandise depicting a fictional Princess Charlotte. No, this isn't Kate Middleton and Prince William's daughter, but rather a made-up princess that coincidentally has the same name. The Princess Charlotte line contains lip balms, tiaras and dresses, all in pink and purple hues. Customers can also buy magnets, glitter cups and pendants that all have "Princess Charlotte" imagery on them. The line's most expensive item, a princess »

The Bottom Shelf: Frankenhooker, We Are The Flesh

20 March 2017 12:33 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Apr 28, 2017

Lucio Fulci, Frankenhooker and more in our round up of new horror Blu-rays and DVDs...

So, what’s your personal idea of hell? For this writer, it would almost certainly involve being chained down in the audience of an eternal live filming of Loose Women as Donald Trump waves a slice of tiger bread, forever just out of reach. Yours is likely to be similar, though it would have to be pretty grim indeed to come anywhere near Lucio Fulci’s 1981 career-best infernal vision and perhaps the definitive (obviously other than Little Nicky) cinematic depiction of eternal damnation, The Beyond.

Watch Another Tantalizing 15 Seconds From Tomorrow’s Wonder Woman Trailer

10 March 2017 7:28 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Update: Two more sneak peaks have now been released and can be seen below.

Warner Bros. has whipped us into a frenzy for tomorrow’s new Wonder Woman trailer, doling out a second tiny sneak peek on Facebook. This snippet, which follows the first one released earlier this evening, expands on the film’s World War I London setting.

It shows a gloomy looking, misty London, with Wonder Woman describing it as ‘hideous’ as she passes under Tower Bridge. Now, Themyscira is a literal paradise, so she’s got high standards, but if she thinks the area around the Tower of London and the Thames is that bad I hope to God she never has to go to Croydon.

The rest of the trailer gives us a moody, desaturated glimpse at her using her powers in ‘man’s world,’ fighting soldiers in an office building and galloping through a forest »

Taboo episode 7 review

16 February 2017 8:47 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Feb 18, 2017

Taboo’s lead character remains the frustrating blank space at the centre of an otherwise appealing show…

This review contains spoilers.

See related  Bethesda explains why Doom 4 was scrapped

For weeks I’ve waited to see James Delaney on the back foot - to watch him put under enough pressure that he finally cracks and reveals the human being inside that inscrutable outer shell. Goodbye to that hope. If twelve hours of torture in the Tower of London doesn’t break Delaney, nothing will. Cuts and bruises aside, he remained as in-control and unreadable in the torturer’s chair as he’s been since he landed in London. In-control, unreadable and sadly, dull.

Taboo’s lead is its weakest link. Somehow under and over-written at the same time, Delaney is all over the place. Are we supposed to love him? Hate him? Love to hate him? Aiming for moral complexity, »

Blu-ray Review – Tower of London (1962)

14 February 2017 1:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tower of London, 1962.

Directed by Roger Corman.

Starring Vincent Price, Michael Pate, Joan Freeman, Robert Brown, and Bruce Gordon.

Synopsis:

The story of Richard III is given the Roger Corman/Vincent Price treatment in a Gothic tale of madness and murder.

The story of Richard III has been told many times over in various different ways – although we haven’t yet had one about the discovery of his bones underneath a Leicester car park but that is probably on the way – and in the early 1960s producers Edward Small and Gene Corman approached Corman’s brother Roger about directing a film based loosely on the historical figure. Small had been impressed with Roger Corman’s Edgar Allan Poe adaptations that he made with American International Pictures with Vincent Price playing the leads and so once Corman was on board it didn’t take much to get Price to appear, especially »

‘Tower of London’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

13 February 2017 10:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Vincent Price, Michael Pate, Joan Freeman, Robert Brown, Bruce Gordon, Joan Camden, Richard Hale, Sandra Knight, Charles Macaulay, Justice WatsonSarah Selby, Donald Losby | Written by Leo Gordon, F. Amos Powell | Directed by Roger Corman

When you get Roger Corman and Vince Price together you tend to get a stylised horror film that is hard not to love. While Tower of London may not be their best collaboration, it is an interesting take on Shakespeare’s play of the nefarious King who killed his way to the top…

Corman’s film though is a more mix-and-match tale for Richard III which pulls in Macbeth and Hamlet to make the tale much more ghoulish. Featuring ghosts that haunt Vincent Price’s Richard of Gloucester it is very clear that Price relishes the prospect of taking on a Shakespearian role, but hams it up for all it is worth.

Blu-ray Review – Tower of London (1962)

13 February 2017 12:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tower of London, 1962.

Directed by Roger Corman.

Starring Vincent Price, Michael Pate, Joan Freeman, Robert Brown, Bruce Gordon, Joan Camden, Sandra Knight, Richard Hale.

Synopsis:

The twisted Richard III is haunted by the ghosts of those he has murdered in his attempt to become the King of England.

What’s the best way to liven up a bit of Shakespeare? Get Roger Corman and Vincent Price involved of course!

Following the pair’s successful experiments with film adaptations of stories and poems by Edgar Allen Poe (The Fall of the House of Usher, Pit and the Pendulum and Tales of Terror) the idea seemed like a pretty good one. It’s certainly one which details many of the reasons why classic chiller fans are so devout to Corman’s genius ability to wring dramatic action out of every available space and dollar, alongside Vinnie Price’s wonderfully entertaining mixture of camp and maniacal performances. »

Going for Gold at Royal Mint

2 February 2017 10:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gold comes to cinemas nationwide today, so in association with its release, Flickering Myth went to The Royal Mint in pursuit of gold…

See Also: Read our review of Gold here 

On a dreary winter’s day, an industrial town in Wales doesn’t sound like the ideal destination. However, much like Kenny Wells (Matthew McConaughey in Gold), sometimes you can strike gold in the most unassuming of places.

Royal Mint is the largest mint in western Europe, every single British coin in circulation is made here – that’s right, all of those coins tunefully jangling in your pockets. The Royal Mint produces roughly 90 million coins each week, averaging a cool 5 billion per year.

The Royal Mint Experience, a purpose built exhibition and visitor centre, opened its doors for the first time on the 18th May 2016. This provides visitors with the chance to explore the rich history of Royal Mint, »

Review: "The Mad Magician" (1954) Starring Vincent Price; Twilight Time Blu-ray Release

30 January 2017 6:43 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Hank Reineke

Though Vincent Price would eventually garner a well-deserved reputation as Hollywood’s preeminent bogeyman, it was only really with André De Toth’s House of Wax (1953) that the actor would become associated with all things sinister. In some sense the playful, nervously elegant Price was an odd successor to the horror film-maestro throne: he was a somewhat aristocratic psychotic who shared neither Boris Karloff’s cold and malevolent scowl nor Bela Lugosi’s distinctly unhinged madness or old-world exoticism.

His early film career started in a less pigeonholed manner: as a budding movie actor with a seven year contract for Universal Studios in the 1940s, the tall, elegant Price would appear in a number of semi-distinguished if modestly-budgeted romantic comedies and dramas. His contract with Universal was apparently non-exclusive, and his most memorable roles for the studio were his earliest. In a harbinger of things to come, »
