2012 was the year in which the Mayans predicted that the world would end and preppers and survivalists around the world were salivating at the thought of what would be thrown at them by the impending apocalypse. The predicted fateful day passed without incident and here we find ourselves at the end of the year [...]
So, that was 2012, eh? An interesting year indeed.
It was a year where the shambling dead continued to dominate the small screen and the big screen was beset by lacklustre big-budget claptrap and high quality animated horror aimed at families. On the whole, a good showing and a year that further cements horror as THE [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
The only silver lining to working 70 hr weeks in the film industry is perhaps the discovery of entire films uploaded online, intact, and the freedom to have them rolling in the background while one toils; which lately, has been my only means of keeping a healthy sub-par horror diet.

Thursday night. Nothing on TV.
“Why don’t you play one of your new games you bought today? I don’t mind watching.” That was all she had to say. She’d barely finished the sentence and I had the wireless remote in hand, button pressed, firing up the 360. That didn’t really surprise her. What DID surprise her [...]
When I first had the opportunity to see the trailers for American Horror Story I didn’t hold out much hope. It wasn’t that it didn’t interest me, on the contrary, the show looked pretty decent, and right up my street. My problem was that the trailers advertised something that I expected would be entirely different [...]
I can’t believe it’s been 25 years since the dawn of everything Predator. Today marks the 25th anniversary of John McTiernan’s Predator. Predator was released in 1987 to a mixed critical reaction, however over the years reception has warmed, The Predator legacy is strong and continues to this today. Predator spawned 2 sequels with Predator [...]
You don’t have to remember too far back to remember Silent Hill: Homecoming, but maybe now after a little time, and after another (justifiably) critically panned sequel, maybe it’s time to give a little credit to the 6th game in the only remaining franchise that deserves it’s “survival horror” tag.
Whilst Resident Evil 5 went all [...]
