Some Assembly Required

With all this recent talk of ol’ craggy faced Robert Redford invading the UK (with his Sundance Film Festival), it got me thinking about other, truly independent films and filmmaking. Specifically I mean two, rather interesting independent filmmakers. The first being a Brit lad by the name of AD Lane, whose unique approach to funding … Continue reading

Horror From The Heart

It seems of late that I have become rather bored of the same ,stale tripe that gets churned out for what passes as modern horror these days.

Cinema Etiquette : Sit Down, Shut Up!

Now I do not usually feel the need to launch into rant for no reason, but in this case I actually feel justified as I have had several conversations with friends and family recently about films they have all seen within the last few months and one thing became abundantly clear, what I like to … Continue reading
