"Ejecta" - comes to UK DVD this January.

The unnerving and ever-present question of whether we are truly alone in the universe is finally answered in the intriguing sci-fi horror EJECTA - available on DVD and digital platforms this January.
Already generating huge buzz within the horror community, EJECTA sees cult hero Julian Richings (Man of Steel, Cube) take centre stage in this story of one night on earth that alters everything we think we know about the universe. 

On the eve of a historic solar storm, two men are forced to fight for survival against a horrifying life form that's determined to hunt them down. In the aftermath of their traumatic close encounter, they find themselves pursued by an anonymous militia group, who will stop at nothing to unearth the truth behind what happened that night… and prove to the world that we are not alone in the universe.

Directed by Chad Archibald and Matt Wiele, and starring Adam Seybould (Path of Souls, Exit Humanity) and Lisa Houle (Pontypool, TV’s Flashpoint) alongside a scene-stealing Richings, EJECTA is a shocking hybrid of sci-fi and horror- tense, terrifying, and an absolute must-see for fans of both genres. 
EJECTA is released to DVD and VOD from 19th January, 2015 courtesy of Signature Entertainment.

"Blood Lake" - US DVD review

Just when you thought (for the 100th time) that it was FINALLY safe to go back in the water, along comes “Blood Lake”. The latest film from prolific indie director James Cullen Bressack (Hate Crime, 13/13/13), which is out on DVD in the US this month. 
The film stars US TV Actor and former “Baywatch” star Jason Brooks (TVs “Revolution” and “The Mentalist”) as Michael Parker. A ‘Chief Brody’ type character, who works for the Department of Fish and Wildlife, who’s sent to investigate an outbreak of carnivorous eels, known as Lampreys, in one of the local lakes.
The Lampreys have been decimating the fish population and the towns Mayor (played by Christopher Lloyd – “Piranha 3D”, “Back to the Future”) wants something done about them quickly, before the tourist season starts. But before they can sort out how to cull them all, they manage to infest the local rivers and everything both up and down stream. As the people at the local beach find out, much to our amusement, when they emerge from the waters covered in fish guts.
But it seems things are about to go from bad to worse, as the Lampreys have developed a taste for human blood, and proceed to arbitrarily start snacking on anyone venturing near a water course, before managing to get into the towns water supply. Spelling bad news for people wanting to use their swimming pools, garden sprinklers or just sit on the toilet reading their favourite newspaper.
Originally filmed for the US TV networks, the film cheerfully apes the basic plot to stuff like “Jaws”, “Piranha”, “Alligator”, “Squirm" and various other films about nature on the rampage. So it comes as no surprise to learn that this is one of those hilariously bad B-movies to come out of the Asylum pictures stable. The people who gave us such wonderful titles as “Megashark Vs Giant Octopus” and the “Sharknado” films (so you know what you’re in for).
Dodgy CGI, unfeasible plot devices and over the top gore are the order of the day here, which had me laughing out load for most of the films duration, which also features Shannen Docherty ("Beverly Hills 90210") as Mike’s wife and co-stars Zack Ward ("Resident Evil : Apocalypse", "Don’t Blink") as Mike’s work partner Will.
Having reviewed some of the directors earlier works, I had often wondered what he could do with a half-decent budget and now I know. Needless to say, I thought this was hilarious stuff. If you’re a fan of Asylum pictures other movies, you should definitely get a kick out of this one. It’s a film that the sci-fi channel might describe as “Terribly good” (with the emphasis firmly on the “terribly”). So if you love these cheesy B-movies, definitely give this one a go!

The film is released to DVD in the US Nov 28. The screener I viewed did not contain any special features on, whether the released disc will have any trailers or any extras features on is unknown at this time.

"The Axeman of Henderson County" - A Review

“The Axeman of “Henderson County is the debut feature of  Director Larry Parmiter who kindly sent me a review disc to take a look at. Kind of a cheeky nod to the slasher movies of the 80s, a maniac in a ski mask Is going around carving up people in and around a small rural town, in Henderson county in the US.
The Sheriff and his deputies (who are all clearly identifiable, as they have the words “Sheriff” and “Deputy Sheriff” emblazoned in large lettering on their respective baseball caps) investigate, but find no leads.
As the bodies pile up, the Towns Mayor (played by WWF wrestler ‘Hacksaw’ Jim Duggan) is suitably outraged that the police force can’t seem to stop this maniac, who subsequently starts writing taunting letters to the Sheriff, boasting he will strike again at the next full moon.
But upon discovering the killer has a love of Jazz music, will this prove to be his undoing (watch the film, it will all make sense)?
Filmed on a budget of around $5000, utilising a lot of first time actors, the acting isn’t exactly up to “The Royal Shakespeare Company” standards, and owing to the film makers limited means, features a lot of awkward jumpy sound edits and less than impressive special effects.
However, at the same time, the film was pretty damn funny. Being filmed in an exceptionally tongue in cheek style, the film makers know they have limited means and the story seems to play up this (think along the lines of “Birdemic”). Needless to say, I thought the film was hilarious, possibly for the wrong reasons, but funny none-the-less.
So if these low budget Indie clunkers are your idea of a good evenings entertainment, then you can’t go wrong. The film makers have a number of copies of the film pressed to DVD, however these are currently only available at special film screenings.

"Let us Prey" - review from the Mayhem Horror Festival

Brian O'Malley's "Let us Prey" is another film I caught whilst attending The Mayhem Horror festival on Thursday October 30th (see my review of the other film The Editor). Set in a remote Scottish village, the film stars Pollyanna Macintosh (The Woman) as WPC Heggie, a fresh faced recruit, who’s just started at the towns police station on the night shift.
On her way into work on her first night, she apprehends a joy rider, who knocked over an old man. Yet strangely, the body appears to have vanished when they look round.
Having booked him in at the station, we quickly get the impression that the towns constabulary are not the nicest of folk. The officer in charge, Sgt MacReady (Douglass Russell – A Lonely Place to Die) is a gruff, old school copper, who likes to beat manners into unruly detainees.
The 2 other officers on shift that night, PC Warnock and WPC Mundie (played by “Outpost III”’s Bryan Larkin and “The Outcast”’s Hanna Stanbridge) are a seedy pair who seem more interested in pounding each other in the back of their patrol car than pounding the beat.
Anyway, they later find the old man (played by “Game of Thrones” Liam Cunningham) wandering the streets in a daze and bring him into the station, which is when things start to get weird. The local doctor comes to check him out, but then tries to attack him. Sticking them both in the holding cells, it seems the old man knows that everyone at the station, prisoners and policemen alike, are harbouring a very dark secret. Fate has brought them all together for a reason this night and their sins are all about to find them out.
Directed by newcomer Brian O’Malley, the film is a very weird supernatural tale which goes to show that karma can be a right bitch, as well as putting a whole new shine on the phrase “All Coppers are B*****ds”. In which we find these particular upholders of the law are arguably worse offenders than the people they arrest.
Overall, I was very impressed with this film. Which features a solid cast and proves to be an effective little chiller. It was certainly well received by the others at the festival, so I would definitely recommend seeking this one out when it comes to disc.

The Best Ways To Survive A Real Purge

Get off the streets, lock the doors and prepare for the return of "The Purge: Anarchy" coming to Blu-ray and DVD on 17th November. 
"The Purge: Anarchy" sees the mayhem of the purge, where one night a year, all crime including murder is legal.  While some purge for kicks, and some purge for revenge, some just like to try to survive.  To celebrate the Blu-ray and DVD release here’s a guide on the best ways to survive a ‘real purge’...Will you #SurviveTheNight?

Stay Alert
Stay alert. Even for the non-participant, being alert and vigilant is a necessity. Only when we are prepared and self-sustained can we truly enjoy The Purge.

Get Provisions
Be prepared with plenty of food and drinks. Not only will this keep you from unnecessary travel on Purge night, it will make for a comfortable and enjoyable viewing of the events.

Cover up and keep away from windows as they are an easy portal to danger. Upper-level windows, though less dangerous than those on the ground level, should still be safely covered and avoided.
Defend Your Home
Protect your home. Even if you cannot afford a top-level security system, you can take steps to make your home safer. Try a basic barricade at your stairwell and remain either below in the basement or safely above on the upper floors.  Always have a backup plan for your escape, and do what you have to do to ensure your own survival.

Establish yourself as a psychotic violent presence in your neighbourhood, someone not to be trifled with, and who is feared by all.  In essence, live like every day is Purge day.
If you get caught driving around and the Purge starts to happen, RUN!   Go to the nearest corner shop and find a weapon of some kind and make your way home.  As a last ditch, if you are ever caught out in the open, cover yourself with blood and take a really long nap.
"The Purge: Anarchy" is released on Blu-ray and DVD from 17th November from Universal Pictures (UK). A box-set including both The Purge and The Purge: Anarchy will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on the same date.

Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell making "Evil Dead" TV series

OK, for those of you who haven't already heard the news, it seems Bruce Campbell will be returning as Ash, but this time on the small screen, for a new TV series entitled "Ash Vs The Evil Dead".
The show has been ordered by the Starz TV network in the US, and will comprise of 10 half-hour episodes. Sam Raimi is writing and directing the pilot episode and will be producing the rest of the series, alongside fellow "Evil Dead" stalwart Robert Tappert.
Its been over 20 years since Bruce Campbell last appeared as Ash (not counting the guest appearance in that awful remake from the other year), back in 1993's "Army of Darkness", Raimi's third film in the Evil Dead series.
The new show will see Ash, some years later, back in his old job, squaring off against another set of deadites when evil comes to call on him once again (I'm assuming this follows on from the theatrical ending of "Army of Darkness", as opposed to the post-apocalyptic ending from the directors cut version).
The film is set to premiere on the Starz network in the US sometime in 2015. News on if and when this will be screened in the UK will be published when it becomes available.

"The Editor" - a review from the Mayhem Film Festival

On Thursday the 30th of October I attended the opening night of the Mayhem Horror Film festival at the Broadway Cinema in Nottingham to see, amongst other films, “The Editor” by infamous production crew ‘Astron-6’
The show had opened with a selection of their earlier short films which included, amongst other shorts, “Bio-Cop”, a bizarre cross between “The Incredible Melting Man” and “Manic Cop”. “Inferno of the Dead”, in which the zombies from “Nights of Terror” (Burial Ground) turn out to be pretty lousy flatmates, “Cool Guys”, a piss-take of those 80s beach movies and “Goreblade”, a Hercules/Xena type spoof.
Having been given a taste of what was to come, it was onto the main feature. “The Editor”.  Which was basically a send up of those Italian Giallos (crime thrillers) from the 70’s and early 80s.
The film revolves around a Franco Nero lookalike, Rey Ciso (Adam Brooks), who was once an award winning film editor. But has since been forced to take menial work on low budget films, after an unfortunate accident in the editing room left him with a prosthetic wooden hand, which has severely hampered his editing abilities.
Unfortunately, it seems people in the cast and crew of the latest film he’s working on are getting bumped off by a knife wielding maniac and the bungling policeman in charge, detective Porfiry (Matthew Kennedy) thinks it’s him.
However, it seems Porfiry is a complete idiot who’s too incompetent to catch a cold and only got promoted to detective because his wife, who also happens to be one of the actresses in the film, happens to be the daughter of the police chief.
Meanwhile, the killer continues to hack and slash his way through the film crew, as Porfiry tries desperately to pin it on Ciso, whilst the other cast members only seem to care if this sudden loss of lead actors means their roles will be expanded.
Done in the style of those old Italian horror films, particularly those of Dario Argento, the film is part parody and part homage, featuring intentionally bad dubbing, ludicrous plot twists and tons of references to other movies, such as “The Beyond”, “New York Ripper” and even “Hitch Hike”. Which also features tracks by noted genre composer Claudio Simonetti and a guest appearance by Eurohorror regular Udo Kier, who has a small role as a doctor.
If you’re a fan of Italian cinema, you’ll undoubtedly love this, which plays like a Troma version of Tenebrae and went down an absolute storm at the festival. However, younger horror fans who’s knowledge of horror extends solely to the Paranormal Activity films and the likes of Saw, probably won’t get the humour.
This one is currently doing the rounds on the festival circuit, so if you get chance to see this with an audience, go check it out. Their earlier short films are also currently available on DVD in the US, which I would also advise checking out, for you to get a feel of what you’re in for!

"Texas Chainsaw Massacre" - 40th anniversary UK BD review.

It’s been 40 years since Tobe Hoopers original 1974 film “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre” shocked audiences around the world. Banned in the UK upon its original release, it wasn’t until 1999 that UK audiences finally got to see what all the fuss was about and has since enjoyed a popular life on home video.
Now Second Sight films are releasing a brand new digitally restored 4k version to Blu-ray with brand new special features exclusive to this release together with a mix of existing features from previous versions for their new 40th Anniversary Blu-Ray.
I’m sure we’re all familiar with the story, a group of teenagers go out for a drive one weekend in rural Texas and decide to visit the remains of their old grandfathers farmhouse. Unfortunately, it seems the people on the next farm are none too receptive towards visitors, as one by one the kids go off exploring their surroundings and come up against Leatherface, a maniac wearing a mask made of human skin and a penchant for using chainsaws.
Hailed as the prototype of the modern slasher film, it does look somewhat dated by todays standards. Indeed, many have joked that perhaps the most shocking thing about it now is the terrible 70s flared trousers and hairstyles. The film has been re-issued several times over the years, but this latest Blu-ray release has been struck from a brand new 4k master, supervised by Tobe Hooper himself.
Now, a quick word about this new restored version. I took the liberty of viewing this on a friends 50” Samsung HDTV and comparing it to the Second Sight’s previous DVD release. Now, it would have been better if I had their previous Blu-ray to hand for a fairer comparison, but as I don’t own that, the DVD had to do.
Overall, the new Blu-ray was certainly a lot brighter, edges were more cleanly defined and there wasn’t any pixilation or blurring when there was a lot of fast action taking place compared to the DVD. Now, I’m not sure how the previous Blu-ray would have compared, but all things considered, the new disc has the edge.
This being said however, owing to the limits of the films original 16mm elements, the film is still noticeably soft and grainy and arguably looks better displayed on a smaller screen. Indeed, viewed side by side on my laptops 17” screen, the only thing the new version had going for it was the brighter colours. So, personally speaking, I don’t think this new 4K restoration is the be all and end all as the film is never going to look better than the original film stock.
Extras wise however, the film contains a very nice mix of old and new features, which are spread across 2 Blu-rays.
On disc 1, you get 4 audio commentary tracks accompanying the main feature. The first two being brand new to this release, one with director Tobe Hooper and the second with crew members Daniel Pearl, Ted Nicolaou J. Larry Carroll. The other commentaries being carried over from previous releases, one featuring Tobe Hooper  Gunnar Hansen and cinematographer Daniel Pearl, the other featuring stars Marilyn Burns, Allen Danziger, Paul Partain and production designer Robert Burns.
On disc 2 you have a number of new features including..
Cutting Chainsaw feature with editor J Larry Caroll (11mins)
Grandpaw’s Tales with actor John Duggan (15mins)
An episode of Sean Clarks “Horrors Hollowed Grounds” series (20mins), which looks at the filming locations of “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”.
And a bunch of new deleted scenes and out take footage (15mins), which are mostly just unused alternate takes, which are presented without sound.
 Also included are a number of extras that featured on previous releases, including..
Documentary “The Shocking Truth” including outtakes from the documentary.
Documentary “Flesh Wounds – Seven Stories of the Saw” (1hr10m)
“Off the Hook” (17min) an interview actress with Terry McMinn
“Buisiness of the Chainsaw” (16mins) interview with producer Ron Bozman
“House Tour” (8mins) Gunnar Hanser looks round the old house used in the film before and after it was moved to its present location.
And theres also a couple of archive interviews with Tobe Hooper (13mins), Kim Henkel (8mins) and a selection of deleted scenes, trailers, TV spots and stills galleries which featured on the previous editions.
The film is released in both standard BD packaging and in a special limited edition Steelbook.
