For your information I was eager to review this film for a long time prior to its release, had hoped to write it up on the original Halloween 2012 release date. Alas initial reactions were so instantly po-faced that they poisoned the collective internet opinion in record timing and seem to have even harmed its [...]
It’s with a deflating sigh that I prod us into the second part of our expansion upon the adapted texts of Brian Yuzna’s Necronomicon…
If you’ve not been following our progress on Greetings from Yuggoth, then all you really need to know to get caught up, is our last article went to great pains in drawing [...]
One thing we will need to clear up immediately: this is not Guillermo Del Toro’s new film. Remember way back when Juan Antonio Bayona released his latin supernatural shocker The Orphanage and it was also marketed to western audiences as quite literally ‘Guillermo Del Toro’s new movie’? -same story here.
In fact you only need to [...]
So then! We must press on with our descent into pure madness!
I’ve been thinking and scheming, scheming and thinking (in my laboratory) on the most refreshing approach to tackling Lovecraftien subject matter and I felt that it would be most novel for the second instalment of this ongoing retrospective to round out the novellas covered [...]

(Points thumbs at self) This guy!!
Lots of folks have taken to scoffing at the Alan Wake series in recent times, perhaps due to its failure to meet the next-gen high water mark in some regards, perhaps due to [...]
Lollipops and chainsaws; the two are so disparate that their combination feels like the birth of a powerful new oxymoron. A great title nonetheless, grating, memorable and instantly descriptive of Goichi Suda’s next entry into his seemingly self created genre of gonzo videogame development.
Lollipop Chainsaw (again such a great name, especially following his wrote wanking [...]
The Resident Evil behemoth continues to thunder its Gestapo boots forwards, worms churning about its hideous eyeballs, and in its wake a familiar legion of the staggering undead!
You want it though, admit it. You welcome the legion in its wake and you want to get infected all over again, right? Who cares how good or [...]
Firstly, if you’re not up to speed on the loping Resi titan then consider the fact that its 15th anniversary celebrations are more or less in full swing at the present time, and this spells the coming of several new Resi titles for your gaming pleasure.
Next we’ll ask that you take your brain in your [...]
