‘Undead: Night of the Living Dead & Return of the Living Dead’ Book Review

22 September 2017 6:01 AM, PDT

Undead by John Russo is a book of two halves. The first half is the novelisation of Night of the Living Dead and the second part is the novelisation of the first concept for Return of the Living Dead. This is interesting to read as it’s totally different than the movie it became. This version of Return was more of a follow on from Night of the Living Dead and had a more serious tone.

Night of the Living Dead is an easy read as it’s very familiar to anybody who has seen the movie. Having been attacked by a zombie while visiting a graveyard with her brother Barbara is chased to a farm house where she is joined by others to form a group to defend themselves against the zombie onslaught. Although a good story I did find that the novelisation as with the movie tended to drag on. »

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×03: Neighbours from Hell’ Review

21 September 2017 10:01 AM, PDT

If I was to write that American Horror Story: Cult is a brave show to air on television, I’m sure many would say “no, it just sucks.” The thing is with this year’s choice of subject, which has a focus more on the psychological, it is going to divide viewers. This is a year that is definitely trying to mess with anybody who chooses to watch it. The question is going to be, is the risk worth it?

After the shooting, last week Ally (Sarah Paulson) finds herself exonerated from any blame for her actions. This doesn’t make everybody happy though as Ally and Ivy (Alison Pill) find out when they find protests outside their restaurant. With Kai (Evan Peters) showing support for Ally though, just what is he up to?

This week’s episode managed to at first confuse me as to what it was trying to achieve, »

From VHS to VOD #4

21 September 2017 8:01 AM, PDT

We’ve covered plenty of obscure films available on iTunes in previous From VHS to VOD columns but Apple’s digital service is not the only VOD service making waves into the strange and obscure – there’s plenty of odd, unseen and unreleased (well unreleased on disc formats) films available on Amazon Video.

Unlike iTunes, a lot of the more obscure titles are only available for streaming rather than purchase, though the wide variety of films you don’t, and probably won’t see elsewhere makes up for that. Like iTunes there are some truly obscure films hidden away in the depths of Amazon’s vast collection of movies. Some of which have been made available in the UK for the first time since VHS and a Lot that have been added to the service in their original uncut form!
