No pasarán.

If you aren't worried, you simply don't understand the situation.

  • North Sea Hijack

    North Sea Hijack


    "Both my parents died tragically in childbirth."

    North Sea Hijack pretty much begins with Lloyds of London realising that oil rigs are a potential target for terrorists or criminals and that they bloody well ought to have a plan in place just in case.

    So they bring in ffolkes, a man with his own private band of marines, who figures out how one would go about hijacking a rig and from there, how he would foil such a plan.

    2001: A Space Odyssey


    Happy birthday to 2001, yes, it's been 50 years since it went on general release. Just think on that for a moment, 50 years. Think about how far cinema had come in the half century before Kubrick made this film and how far it's come in that same amount of time since then and you realise, if you hadn't already, what an extraordinary achievement it is.

    Now I'm sure there are people out there who like to decry the love…

    Hooptober the 10th | 20 | Main | Mario Bava

    Two hundred years (to the day), after Asa Vajda is condemned to death by her own brother, for being a witch, a broken wheel on a carriage leads to the discovery of her tomb, and a scratched hand, and a few drops of blood, see her resurrected, and out to cause havoc once more.

    While today, we seem to think of witchcraft, satanism, and vampirism, as clearly defined, and separate…

    Zombies of Mora Tau


    Hooptober the 10th | 19 | Main | Decades | 50s | 3/8

    Land of the Dead, Zombie Lake, Shock Waves, Zombie Flesh Eaters, what have they all got in common? Aquatic zombies, about which there is something quite cool, and now I can add to that list, Zombies of Mora Tau, who might be more aquatic than any other zombie, even if they don't wrestle sharks.

    Somewhere off the coast of 'Africa' yet another attempt is being made to…

  • Beware the Slenderman

    Beware the Slenderman


    The story of how two pre-teens, both of whom appear to be delusional and one of whom has been diagnosed as schizophrenic attempted to murder a friend of theirs believing that they are acting under the instructions of Slenderman.

    The thing that lies at the heart of their delusion and what makes it so difficult to break is exactly the same thing that lies at the heart of religious beliefs and that is the inability of anyone to disprove the…

    007 Rank-A-Thon

    At last a realistic Bond villain, at least in terms of his aims and the method by which he's setting out to achieve it, flooding the US with a couple of tons of opium (it sounds much more charming than heroin) which will be given away for free thereby knocking out all the competition in one fell swoop. I'm not sure it would actually work out like that but it's not completely unrealistic and what's more the price…
