David Tennant turns into the Bad Samaritan later this year.
Posted on Wednesday 25th April 2018

One bad night - one bad decision - can haunt you forever.

Misfits and Mute star Robert Sheehan goes up against Jessica Jones and Doctor Who's David Tennant, here on sensationally nasty form, in a white-knuckle home invasion thriller from the producers of Independence Day, Bad Samaritan.

Struggling photographer Sean Falco (Sheehan), who funds his lifestyle with a sideline in burglary, thinks he has hit the jackpot when he breaks into the luxurious house of the wealthy Cale Erendreich (Tennant).

By the time they investigate, Cale has cov...

Dare you experience the madness and mania of Gifted?
Posted on Wednesday 25th April 2018

In the tradition of Oldboy, I Saw The Devil and Chaser comes one of South Korea's most mesmerising stories of madness and mania that is not for a squeamish - do not say you were not warned...!

There is little doubting that the tension between North and South has led to some of strongest cinematic achievements of recent years. Indeed, the South Korean wave, with its stories of battle-scarred testosterone, living-for-the-moment madness, all-too-fragile psyches and behind-the-doors delirium, has long pointed to an image of shattered innocence and a nation concerned with the future.

Never is this clearer than with 2014's acclaimed and intense shocker Gifted

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the woods... Grizzly is coming for you!
Posted on Tuesday 10th April 2018

After the success of Jaws in 1975, the carnage-packed copycats came thick and fast, but none is more fondly remembered than the teeth-bearing brilliance of Grizzly, which stormed a path across grindhouse theatres worldwide and left many an audience shell-shocked by its nature-run-amok intensity!

Starring the late, great violence-veteran Christopher George (City Of The Living Dead/Pieces) as a forest ranger with a humongous hairball of a problem on his hands, Grizzly was directed by the legendary B-movie hand William Girdler whose other work includes such memorable low-rent romps as Three On A Meathook (1972) and The Manitou (1978) alongside the slick and sick likes of Day Of The Animals (1977).<...

Abel Ferrara's The Addiction is coming for you!
Posted on Monday 9th April 2018

The mid-nineties were a fertile period for the vampire movie. Big-name stars such as Tom Cruise and Eddie Murphy flocked to the genre, as did high-calibre filmmakers like Francis Ford Coppola, veterans Wes Craven and John Landis, independents Michael Almereyda and Jeffrey Arsenault, and up-and-comers Quentin Tarantino and Guillermo del Toro. Amid the fangs and crucifixes, Abel Ferrara reunited with his King of New York star Christopher Walken for The Addiction, a distinctly personal take on creatures of the night.

Philosophy student Kathleen (Lili Taylor, The Conjuring) is dragged into an alleyway on her way home from class by Casanova (Annabella Sciorra, The Hand That Rocks the Cradle) and bitten on th...

For the very first time, the definitive history of Amicus Productions is now available
Posted on Monday 9th April 2018

Amicus was founded by two Americans, Milton Subotsky and Max Rosenberg, and the story of its rise and fall is a fascinating one that has never been told in as full detail as it is in this important new film book.

Amicus - The Friendly Face of Fear tells the complete story of Amicus's 20 year creative period, starting with 50s rock musicals and charting its rise through Dr. Who movies and horror anthologies and prehistoric fantasies like The Land That Time Forgot. The book also explores the behind-the-scenes troubles that eventually tore the company apart, leading to a bitter and extended legal battle between the two former partners.
