2012 Preview No.4-Livide, AMAZING!!!!!!!

So with a release date of January 2012 comes Livide, the new movie from the makers of the ultra violent and pretty fucking awesome "Inside" after giving the finger to Hollywood over studio interference on the proposed remake of Hellraiser they return to France to make what they like and how they like it!
This will definitely be at the top of my must see list along with REC3 especially after reading that at the preview screening some critics walked out at the apparent "Brain eating" scene, bring it on, Vive la France!!!

2012 Preview No.3:Jack The Giant Killer.

This one looks a good one for 2012, Directed by the great director Bryan Singer this kind of sudo Remake is a great telling of the legend that is Jack and The Beanstalk, looks super big FX and from the looks of the trailer there are many more giants than just the one!

2012 Preview no.2----The Devil Inside

Another good looking Exorcism movie coming at you in 2012 is The Devil Inside, there seems to have been a re insurgence of the exorcism movies of late but to me this looks like one of the better ones,

Website of the week-Brit Zombie Girls art!!

Hello all!
This weeks website of the week is the awesome Etsy store brought to you by the fantastic artist that is Zoe Humphries-AKA Brit zombie girl!
She did some great artwork for the very 1st Jonnys Cult Films podcast and it's great to see that she has pushed herself forward in opening and selling her great artwork from all your favourite film characters, she also been featured on the U.S. website/Podcast  Cadverlab it seems the word is spreading and so it should.
All the artwork are limited edition prints and come with a certificate of authenticity/signed and they are all a very very reasonable price indeed.
I do think the artwork does resonate a great old school feel of the art on old cinema posters and it would be great to see some indie film maker out there maybe one day commission a poster, so if you are a film maker why not get in touch, it's  just an idea i that would make for great and original poster art, forget photo shop!
So head on over to her sites and check out what you could get now and support a great artist amongst the horror community.

A List of my Asian Cinema Favourites-Part 1.

Hello Folks,
It's list time again!
This time I'll be doing a list of my all time favourites from Asian Cinema, it's by no means the most comprehensive list but just a few titles i though of whilst thinking about the Asian cinema films that really stand out for me personally, No doubt there will be more list type posts that will include recommendations but these are a few of my favourite that you may or may have not seen and if you haven't i would highly recommend you seeking out these titles that include everything from hopping vampires through to heroic bloodshed,
Enjoy and thanks for looking,
Jonny T.

Mr Vampire.

A true classic in Chinese cinema, This was i recall probably one of my 1st experiences of Asian cinema and i loved it, it's creepy and really quite hilarious, The story of the hopping vampires that can be stopped by... a steak to the heart? Nope! Garlic? Nope! A crucifix? Nope! The only way you can stop these from hopping to your jugular is to stick a bit of yellow rice paper to their forehead, i kid you not! A real must see whether you are new to Asian cinema or you have never seen it, i can't recommend this one highly enough.

Encounters of a spooky kind-A.K.A Spooky encounters.

Sammo Hung at his finest, The legend that is Sammo Hung pulls out all the stops for this classic, Very much in the same vane as Mr Vampire and equally hilarious, the fight scenes are insane as is the ghosts, i remember being lucky enough to catch this at the cinema and the ending is just amazing, i remember it finished and me and my friend Simo both turned to each other and did the "What the fuck was that???" Amazing stuff from a true legend of Asian Cinema, Long Live Sammo!

A Classic scene from Encounters of a spooky Kind.

Once Upon a Time in China 2.

Jet Li continues his role as the Chinese legend Wong Fei-Hung in this follow up to the original Classic Once upon a time in China, Directed by one of the best directors to ever come out of China Tsui Hark and in my opinion is far superior in both pace and action than the original, the crowning glory has to be the final pole fight between Donnie Yen and Jet Li, Take no notice of the duff Hollywood stuff that Jet Li has made this his Hollywood days this in his him in his prime and and his awesome best.

A Better Tomorrow 2.

The good old genre of Heroic Bloodshed does not come much better than this! Starring The King of Heroic Bloodshed Chow Yun Fat and directed by the heroic maestro John Woo this set the very high standard of Heroic Bloodshed films which in my opinion no one ever topped, the shootout scenes go on for ages but not in a bad way, in a John Woo style with slo-mo Chow Yun Fat in long trench coat blasting the living shit out of everything! A Masterpiece.

Eastern Condors.

"An action film about a daring commando raid into Vietnam to destroy a munitions dump left behind by American marines." Well from the IMDB synopsis it doesn't sound like much but it certainly is! Explosions, massive fight scenes, great story and some of the best action you will ever see from the legendary pair of Sammo Hung and Biao Yuen, A MUST WATCH!!!!

Honourable mentions that go without saying!
Bullet in the head.
The Ring.
The Host.
The Grudge.
I Saw the Devil.

My Father the hero.
