20th century boys trilogy reviewed!

Well i finally got around to watching the japanese triolgy of"20th century boys"and i have to say when i first saw the sleeve notes saying"live action manga adaptation"i thought ah well another one but i could not have been more wrong,because as a trilogy it is nothing short of AWESOME!!!
As i said it is a trilogy based on the classic manga tale,The first film is nearly 2hrs 30 minutes long but don't let that put you off as it is engrosing stuff.
It was seen in japan pretty much the way the"lord of the rings trilogy"was seen in the west as pretty much an impossible undertaking but i cannot say enough how well they have pulled it off.
The first film is about a group of young boys growing up pretty much in the same vein as the boys in stephen king classic"stand by me"and with the length of the first fil you do get to really bong with the characters as the trilogy twists and turns and dazzels throughout the 3 films.

They create a book that depicts future Armageddon; they call it the Book of Prophecy. Sometime later the grown ups meet at a school reunion, people are dying at the hands of a sinister cult led by a mysterious leader known only as ‘Friend’, it soon becomes apparent that the time they spent together as children is having a major influence on current events. Their predictions are coming true and the mysterious cult is using the symbol they created as their logo. Worse than that, it soon becomes apparent that the nine grown ups are also responsible for the future of mankind and only they can save Earth from destruction.
The second movie was always going to be difficult to pull off as in many pre-filmed trilogys it doesn't have a begging or an end but just leaves you itching to put the third film on straight away and i did!!
Then th e3rd film in the trilogy goes all balls out!Huge robots destroying landscapes and ufo's,who needs more!If you are a fan of the manga comics the trilogu does end differently but thats not a bad thing and it is completeley satisfying.
I can't really say anything about the 2nd to parts without giving spoilers away wich i don't want to do,all i can say is go watch!
This film comes out this week and is currently on amazon to pre-order for only £14.99,with the first film coming in a brillant box with a super neat booklet.
Released by 4digital media and nippon tv,in a 4 disc box set,for this price its a definate buy 9/10!!

Jonny t

"Now this is the way we love to end a Friday. Fans of Boris Karloff and classic horror television shows have long sought after the series "Thriller". It was available on VHS way back when and of course almost every bootlegger has peddled a copy online at one point or another, but now thanks to Image Entertainment the wait and the search are officially over!"

From the Press Release
For two seasons and over sixty episodes, horror icon Boris Karloff invited television audiences to enjoy captivating tales of suspense, murder, and relentless terror as host of the 1960s anthology series “Thriller.” Featuring stories from such master storytellers as Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Bloch, Cornell Woolrich and starring a galaxy of classic television stars from the 1960s and 1970s, “Thriller” was dubbed by Stephen King as “the best horror series ever put on TV.”

Now, Image Entertainment proudly announces a tribute to a television legend with the August 31st release of “Thriller: The Complete Series” 14-DVD Deluxe Box Set. All 67 unforgettable episodes have been remastered, and are presented uncut for the first time since their original broadcasts! And for this very special release, over 50 hours of bonus features have been exclusively and specially created, with over 24 hours of audio commentaries, over 31 hours of isolated music & effects tracks for select episodes from composers Jerry Goldsmith and Morton Stevens, rare episode promos, extensive promotional and production still galleries and more! SRP is $149.98, and pre-book is August 3rd.

“Thriller” still stands today as one of the most chilling television shows ever produced. In addition to the sterling pedigree of stories chosen for the series, “Thriller” boasts an impressive cast of then and future superstars including William Shatner (“Star Trek,” “Boston Legal”), Leslie Nielsen (The Naked Gun films), Rip Torn (“The Larry Sanders Show”), Richard Chamberlain (The Towering Inferno, “The Thorn Birds”), Oscar-winner Cloris Leachman (“Phyllis,” Young Frankenstein), Oscar-nominee Mary Tyler Moore (Ordinary People), Russell Johnson (“Gilligan’s Island”), Edward Platt (“Get Smart”), Natalie Schafer (“Gilligan’s Island”), Tom Poston (Zotz!, “Newhart”), Elizabeth Montgomery (“Bewitched,” “The Legend of Lizzie Borden”), Ursula Andress (Dr. No, Casino Royale) , Howard McNear (Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, “The Andy Griffith Show”), Dick York (Inherit The Wind, “Bewitched”) and many, many more!

And there was talent behind the camera. Episodes were directed by such veterans as “Twilight Zone” alums Douglas Heyes and John Brahm, Mitchell Leisen (Hold Back The Dawn, Death Takes A Holiday) and actor-turned-director Paul Henreid (Casablanca, Now Voyager).

“Thriller: The Complete Series” 14-DVD Deluxe Box Set is the ultimate tribute to the legendary television series and the ultimate must-have for any fan of horror, classic TV…or both!

Freaky Facts surrounding the "Amityville Horror House"

The Amityville Horror has turned from a real suburban American tragedy into a horrific myth. It has become the source of bestselling novels and the subject of several movies.

These are some of the facts as they are known.

On November 13, 1974, in the house at 112 Ocean Ave., Amityville, 24-year-old Ronald DeFeo murdered his family. DeFeo used a high-powered rifle, shot to death his father, mother, two brothers and two sisters. All six members of Ronald DeFeo’s family were killed as they slept and all, said police, were found lying in the same position, on their stomachs with their heads resting on their arms.

At his murder trial, Ronald DeFeo testified that he had killed his family because he had heard voices. "Whenever I looked around, there was no one there, so it must have been God talking to me," he said.

On December 18, 1975, more than a year after the terrible murders, a family of five moved in. They were George and Kathy Lutz and their children Daniel, 9, Christopher, 7 and Missy 5. Twenty eight days later the family fled the house, claiming it was haunted.

According to the Lutzes and their priest, the following events took place during the 28 days the Lutzes lived at 112 Ocean Avenue:

•While the priest was blessing the house as the family move in, a strange masculine voice clearly said to him "Get out!" As he drove back to the rectory, the hood of the priest’s car flew open, smashing against his windshield. One of the welded hinges tore loose. The right door flew open. The car stalled. The priest summoned a friend for help and later the friend called the priest and said, "Do you know what happened to me after I dropped you off? The windshield wipers, they began to fly back and forth like crazy! I couldn’t stop! I never turn them on! What the hell is going on?"

•In the house windows flew up and down and doors were repeatedly ripped off their hinges in the house even though they were securely locked.

•Mrs. Lutz levitated a foot above her bed on several occasions and floated toward an open window. On one of the occasions, when her husband pulled her back, her 30-year-old face had been transformed into the face of a 90-year-old woman - "the hair wild, a shocking white, the face a mass of wrinkles and ugly lines and saliva dripping from the toothless mouth."

•In the dead of winter, hundreds of buzzing flies materialized in one of the upstairs rooms of the house.

•A 12-inch crucifix hung in a closet by Mrs. Lutz revolved until it was upside down and gave off a sour smell.

•The insides of the toilet bowls in two upstairs bathrooms turned absolutely black, "as though someone has painted (them) from the bottom to the edge just below the rim" even though Mrs. Lutz had recently scrubbed both bowls with Clorox.

•Lutz discovered a small secret room in the basement, a room that appeared in no blueprints of the house. It was painted solid red - and had the smell of blood. In one of the red walls, Lutz saw a vision of a face - a face that he would later find from newspaper photographs was that of Ronald DeFeo.

•Every time the family priest would attempt to help the Lutzes, bleeding blisters would erupt on his hands. Telephone calls between the Lutzes and the priest were continually interrupted or cut off by loud noises and eerie sounds, making it impossible for them to communicate.

•While standing outside the house one night, Lutz saw the face of a pig with glowing red eyes in the window of his daughter, Missy. Missy began to continually talk of "my friend Jodie, the biggest pig you ever saw." One night Missy pointed toward her window and there were the two red eyes again. "That’s Jodie," Missy said. "He wants to come in." Mrs. Lutz swung a chair at the window, breaking it and "there was an animal cry of pain, a loud squealing."

•The flowing red eyes again appeared at a downstairs window. When Lutz ran outside, there were tracks in the snow - "No man or woman had made those tracks. The prints had been left by cloven hooves, like those of an enormous pig."

•A bartender who had worked at a party in the house at 112 Ocean Avenue when the DeFeos had lived there told Lutz that he had found the secret red room in the basement and that after seeing it, "I used to have nightmares about it. Sometimes I’d dream that people - I don’t know who they were - were killing dogs and pigs in there and using their blood for some kind of ceremony."

•Mrs. Lutz continued to feel invisible hands gripping her and one day found flaming red welts covering her body, "as though she had been burned by a hot poker."

•Green gelatinous slime began to ooze from the ceiling and from door openings.

•A white-hooded figure, its face half-blasted away as if by a gun, appeared in the living room fireplace and was permanently burned into the fireplace wall.

Today, the home is occupied by a family that is living there in peace. The front of the home, as well as its number on Ocean Avenue, have been changed and despite the regular visits by the curious and believers in the supernatural, life along Ocean Avenue in Amityville is fairly routine. Sometimes a car will pull up in the middle of the night. A passenger will get out and cut away a piece of grass from the home. Sometimes another car will pass in the middle of a hot, summer afternoon, stop and the occupants will stare. Sometimes a deranged individual may even try to break into the home. But mostly, it is just another house in Amityville with nothing more than a horrific history.

Van Diemen's Land Review/Competition

Hey all,
Well i have just watched"Van Diemen's Land"and i have to say i was very suprised!
It was not what i was thinking it would be at all but a hell of a lot more,
Firstly from the trailer etc you just kind of get that it's another ozploitation flick about a man that got cast into the island known as "tasmania" and had to do what he had to do to survive with the other prisoners he has been landed with but there is so much more to it than that basic premise,i can't really say to much without giving out major spoilers,but as with a lot of these films the acting is top notch and the cinematography is awesome,sweeping landscapes and horizons galore.
This is based on a true story wich makes it even more gripping,Made from what was originally a short film now this full length feature and you can see why the transition has been made from short to a full length feature.
The film as i have said is based upon"Alexander pearce"who along with other convicts of irish/scottish and english descent are hurled into chaos when there plans to escape the island are halted and they are thrown into an unforgiving and harsh terrain,then comes along the human instinct of do what you have to to survive,i can tell you no more!!
So i would definately reccomend this movie,buy rent or watch?Well if this is your kind of genre film a definate buy,8/10
Many thanks to lisa and High Fliers films for this movie.
Release 24th may in the uk.
To win this dvd just answer this question,supplied by the legend that is mike at cadaver lab

"who wrote the novel that was adapted to a 70's Australian horror movie hit which told the story of the disappearance of a group of school girls who disappeared at an real Australian geological formation?"
If you know the answer just email with the answer at
Competition end 8pm on 17th may,gooooood luck!
