Frightfest 2017: ‘Nightworld’ Review: Dir. Patricio Valladares

25 August 2017 11:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Nightworld Review: A man mourning the death of his wife gets more than he bargained for when he takes a security job shrouded in secrecy. Nightworld Review

Ghost stories are an incredibly mixed bag at the best of times. The infamous sub-genre has seemingly been the first port of call for every low budget horror film since the 1970’s. On one hand this makes ghostly thrillers difficult to get enthusiastic about. But on the other hand, it gives them a relatively large amount of flexibility with storytelling. Now, fresh-faced film maker Patricio Valladares has crafted his own supernatural thriller, starring none other than Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street).

Nightworld tells the story of a former Lapd officer, named Brett Irlam, who starts a new job as the head of security in a mysterious apartment building in Sofia. As Brett continues to experience horrific nightmares of his late wife, »

Frightfest 2017: Diane Review: Dir. Michael Mongillo (2017)

24 August 2017 4:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Diane Review: A lonely man becomes obsessed with a dead body that turns up in his backyard in this murder-mystery thriller. Diane Review

Trying to pin down what exactly director Michael Mongillo is aiming for tonally in his latest film Diane is the only mystery that needed an explanation in this uneven supernatural thriller. Billed as Stephen King and Brian De Palma meets Gus van Sant and Elmore Leonard, the film never manages to formulate into anything remotely resembling the aforementioned. Frustratingly in trying to emulate these cinematic heavy hitters Diane fails at establishing a coherent narrative and ultimately failed to grip me in even the slightest way.

Horror films are paradoxical in many ways as often much of the sloppiness of the genre can be excused by the pure visceral feeling of fear and dread that the genre and its best can generate. A film plagued by hammy acting, »

CNN’s ‘Declassified’ Set to Detail Russian Sleeper Agents: ‘People Love a Good Spy Story’

20 July 2017 3:53 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Don’t worry if you haven’t gotten enough of Russia stories on cable news recently, as CNN’s “Declassified: Untold Stories of American Spies” returns for its second season on Saturday. The timely season premiere, “The Spies Next Door: Operation Ghost Stories,” is about undercover Russian sleeper agents living in the U.S. and one of the largest counterintelligence investigations in the history of the FBI. “Declassified” host and executive producer Mike Rogers is a former congressman and ex-chairman of the House Intelligence Committee — the position currently held by Devin Nunes. Needless to say, his former colleagues have been »

‘Doctor Who: Ghost Stories #4′ Review

11 July 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by George Mann | Art by Ivan Rodriguez | Published by Titan Comics

All good things must come to an end, and this issue is the final issue of the Ghost Stories mini-series. Probably not a book that many in particular were clamouring for, it has proven to be a fun ride. Combining a little tour of the Who universe with a smattering of super heroics, George Mann has rung as much fun out of this concept as is humanly possible. A more settled art team would have been the cherry on the top of this cake but never mind, there was enough to be happy with.

By now I am sure you all know the core story. The Doctor has been tracking down the three reality altering gems he needs to keep safe, the other gem being the one that gave The Ghost his powers. The Arquess and The Alcyone have been found and secured, »

Movie Review: A Ghost Story may haunt you, even if you think the ghost looks silly

5 July 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Ghost stories require a suspension of disbelief, at least from those without serious superstitions. A Ghost Story requires something more. All but daring its audience to chortle, David Lowery’s supernatural mood piece unfolds almost entirely from the perspective of an apparition straight out of a grade-school fun house: a billowing white bed sheet with two holes cut into it for eyes. On some level, this was probably a budgetary workaround, and maybe a shrewd one; as the piss-poor CGI of Personal Shopper recently demonstrated, it takes some coin to conjure a convincing specter from 1s and 0s. But get on the wavelength of this mesmerizing, singularly unusual genre experiment and the undead being at its center stops looking so silly. There’s life in the dead darkness of those eyeholes: black reflective pools on a pale expanse of linen, conveying more feeling than you might expect.

‘Doctor Who: Ghost Stories #3′ Review

9 June 2017 4:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by George Mann | Art by Dennis Calero | Published by Titan Comics

Doctor Who: Ghost Stories snuck up on me a bit, ready as I was to dislike it even before I started it. It has done that rare thing which is to surpass the material that preceded and inspired it. George Mann has taken a fun concept and really energised it, and it has been a fun read. Grant Gordon, aka The Ghost, has been written fairly seriously, and plays off the mischievous Twelfth Doctor very nicely. The revolving artists is a little jarring, with Dennis Calero now becoming the third artist in three issues. I am assuming as each issue is a quest for a different gemstone, the differing art is supposed to reflect this. No complaints this time round though, as Calero is something of a favourite.

So The Doctor has enlisted Grant, and his partner Lucy and their daughter Jennifer, »

‘Doctor Who: Ghost Stories #1′ Review

12 April 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by George Mann | Art by Ian Rodriguez | Published by Titan Comics

Before I get stuck into the review in earnest, cards on the table time. I didn’t enjoy the Christmas special that inspired this 4 part mini-series. The Return of Dr Mysterio appeared on our screens Christmas 2016, and seems to have been very well liked by most. That should have included me, as it featured Dr Who of course, and something of an affectionate nod to comic books and superheroes, which have been a part of my life for 4 decades. I appreciated the intent, it just didn’t work for me. This mini-series was designed to build on from the events in that TV special, and I do have an interest in that, to see where Grant and Lucy have been since we last saw them.

For those that never saw the Christmas Special, the Twelfth Doctor was essentially »

Holey Sheet This New Trailer For A Ghost Story Is Great

28 March 2017 12:56 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ghost stories have provided incredibly fertile territory throughout the history of cinema. The most obvious examples are the menacing ghouls from horror films, creaking and wailing their way through hordes of terrified B-Movie actors. Yet they can also be a vehicle for comedy, action and, as in David Lowery’s A Ghost Story, romance.

The film, which stars Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck, has already wowed audiences at festivals, having billed itself as “singular exploration of legacy, love, loss, and the enormity of existence.” That’s a big claim to make, but A Ghost Story seems to live up to the hype, with the titular ghost silently haunting his former suburban home in an effort to reconnect with his former wife.

What you’ll have noticed from the new trailer is that this ghost isn’t some translucent marvel of computer compositing, but a dude in a white sheet with eye holes cut into it. »

Comic Book Review – Transformers Annual 2017

10 March 2017 10:51 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ricky Church reviews Transformers Annual 2017…

Ghost Stories! Optimus Prime returns to Cybertron—only to be confronted by his rival for the Matrix, Pyra Magna! As Pyra’s origin—before she was part of Victorion—is finally revealed, Optimus relives his own past—the first time he met Bumblebee!

See Also: Read a preview of Transformers Annual 2017 here

Idw’s Transformers Annual 2017 offers the series a bit of an interlude that looks at the early days of Pyra Magna and, surprisingly, Bumblebee. Both stories offered a deeper look at these characters, though it was Pyra Magna’s story that really shed light on the character along with setting up future conflicts. All in all, though, the annual delivered a good pair of tales of the Transformers universe.

When it comes to Bumblebee, there’s not really much that needs to be said about his past or why he joined up with the Autobots. »
