Earth: Final Conflict - Episode Update
By James Whittington
Posted in: News, Monday 20th Feb 2017
Earth Final Conflict Group Image 2We apologise to all viewers for the problems that occurred with episode 20 of season 3 of Earth: Final Conflict that originally occurred on Monday 13th and Tuesday 14th. This unfortunately happened due to a technical issue at our transmission provider.

We endeavoured to fix the issue in time for the omnibus repeat on Saturday 20th and received an assurance this would be correct and so we directed viewers to this showing. However, despite our best efforts, the failu... »

By James Whittington
Posted in: News, Friday 3rd Feb 2017
MM88 Films has once again delved deep into the horror genre and come up trumps with the release of another lost classic, Mountaintop Motel Massacre.

This is one of the all-time most shocking slasher flicks that is a bloody and colourful spin on Alfred Hitchcock's classic Psycho, only this time the owner of an off-road hotel is a demented older lady with a fetish for sticking a sickle into the faces of anyone foolish enough to rent a room at her rundown establishment!

The movie is a sleazy, and sanguine-stained, sickie that features an older antagonist in the seriously psychotic Evelyn (Anna Chappell) - an elderly and absolutely insane off-road hotel owner that might well give Norman Bates some sleepless nights. When Evelyn is not taking a sickle to the faces of those stupid enough to rent a room at her one-star esta... »

By James Whittington
Posted in: News, Tuesday 17th Jan 2017
The Nigt Evelyn Came out of the graveAt the height of the Italian giallo boom of the early 1970s, scores of filmmakers turned their hand to crafting their own unique takes on these lurid murder-mystery thrillers. In The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave, director Emilio P. Miraglia (The Red Queen Kills Seven Times) melds the giallo's trademark twisty whodunit storytelling with gothic chills, concocting a gripping horror/thriller hybrid.
