Japanese Theatrical Trailer


Shinya Tsukamoto, the cult director of the cyberpunk Tetsuo series, presents an unnerving film about mental instability. Kotoko (folk-singer Cocco), a young single mother, lives alone with her baby son. Suffering from an unknown illness that makes her see double – especially people – and not knowing which version of the person is real, it severely impacts her day-to-day life, often leading to her to lash out violently. As her situation worsens and she becomes a liability, her son is taken from her a put in the care of her sister. Kotoko is left alone with her own thoughts – and for a person with an already broken mind that is a very scary place indeed.

Shinya Tsukamoto Biography

Born in Tokyo, Japan on Jan 1, 1960. He started making films when he was a junior high school student. He graduated from Nippon University, majoring in oil painting.

Exclusive interview with Shinya Tsukamoto

'The Adventures of Electric Rod Boy' - Shinya Tsukamoto's early film

New UK Trailer

Japanese Theatrical Trailers for both Tetsuo I & II


A strange man known only as the "metal fetishist", who seems to have an insane compulsion to stick scrap metal into his body, is hit and possibly killed by a Japanese "salaryman", out for a drive with his girlfriend. The salaryman then notices that he is being slowly overtaken by some kind of disease that is turning his body into scrap metal, and that his nemesis is not in fact dead but is somehow masterminding and guiding his rage and frustration-fueled transformation.


More of a companion piece to Tetsuo: The Iron Man than a sequel, Tetsuo II: Body Hammer sees Tsukamoto’s disturbing vision of a world populated by man-machines explode into a stunning colour interpretation.

“a delirious ride into surreal and subversive territory. Should not be missed by any sci-fi or horror fan”

- Clive Barker

“heart-stopping…cold brilliance. One of the most remarkable sci-fi films in a long time.”

- Geoff Andrew, Time Out

“combines early Lynch's monochrome industrial landscapes, Cronenberg's body horror, Ballard's obsession with crashes and wounds, and Svankmajer's frenetic stop-motion oddity (and staccato editing), but it nonetheless remains a singular monstrosity”

- Anton Bitel, Eye for Film

“As a freak show..., Tetsuo certainly deserves its reputation. It contains memorable sequences of sickening imagination, and unique takes on tired sci-fi/ action ideas.”


'My Ex' comes to DVD- makes Fatal Attraction look tame!

Hello Folks,
Jonny T here with news that the awesome looking Asian flick "My Ex" is set for UK DVD release from MVM FILMS on the 8th of October! Looking like an Asian version of Fatal Attraction but as you probably know with Asian Cinema it may well be a little more extreme than that, and with it being given an "18" Certificate it certainly is looking that way! So watch this space for a review coming very soon.
Jonny T.

"A tale of bitterness, lies and retribution, making Fatal Attraction look tame in comparison."

A chilling story of deceit, lust and vengeance unfolded within the Thai horror-thriller genre. My Ex is an exhilarating combination of the supernatural and unsettling revenge story against a back drop of a dark yet beautiful setting, making Fatal Attraction look tame in comparison.

Shahkrit Yamnarm (Bangkok Dangerous) and director Piyapan Choopetch, of ‘Necromancer’ fame.


As a young, popular actor, Ken’s life is broadcasted across gossip magazines and tabloids, with his love life in particular being heavily scrutinised.
Determined not to be tied down to one girl, Ken proves he is not the monogamous type, leaving a trail of heartache behind him. After unofficially leaving his two previous lovers, Meen and Bow, Ken starts dating his co-star Ploy, much to the fury of Meen and heartbreak of Bow. Having his love affairs leaked to gossip columnists, things start to turn sinister and disturbing for Ken and Ploy alike. Someone or something shadows their every move; invading their privacy, haunting their thoughts and plaguing their nightmares.
With the paparazzi also on Ken’s tail, the extent of his lies and deceit become unravelled through a series of scandalous photos, but also reveal something far darker at play.
Ken’s problems escalate further after retreating to his holiday house. This someone or something is clearly bloodthirsty for revenge, determined to destroy Ken’s life, ensnaring others along the way and leaving a trail of murderous destruction behind.

The phrase “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” is exemplified in this disturbing thriller, resonating the fuming resentment of Fatal Attraction’s Alex Forrest and Swimfan’s Madison Bell. My Ex is undoubtedly a revenge drama par excellence and is a truly gruesome and gripping tale of bitterness, lies and retribution.

Interview with ZOMBIE HUNTER creator, Jesse Dedman!

Hello Jesse and a big thank you for taking time to do this interview for Jonnys Cult Films, I see you run Dedman productions could you tell us about it and what inspired you to get it started?

Dedman Productions emerged because I needed a name that encompassed the various I have. I remember in school my peers used to rip on my name, and though at first I was bothered by it, I soon grew into the name. I mean, having a Dedman as a last name sets one with the introduction one ever really needs. The horror and dark fantasy literature of Deadman’s Tome, the comedic take on the zombie apocalypse, and the collection of gritty and morbid tales I wrote are all represented well with the name.

With great reviews for Zombie Hunter season 1 and Season 2 about to hit, did you think from the start that it would continue on to a second season?

The idea to do a second season was already there, but I was somehow managing to get the attention of a certain international playboy model that served as a catalyst for it. Season 2 would have all the things season 1 was supposed to have, plus more.

There is some real funny moments in season 1 and season 2 looks to be equally as funny with great acting and FX, Do you know all the actors personally and how were they when you pitched the original idea to them?

Yeah, all the actors are either friends, friend of friends, or family. Elvis Quintero has been a friend of mine since 4th grade. Natalie Hernandez is my fiancés sister, and she’s come a long way. You can tell she was nervous in some scenes, especially a scene I like to call the “Pain Test”.
It makes directing easier as I know their limitations, and I also know that they aren’t doing this for the money… what money? Elvis is a perfectionist and pretty hard on himself, and Natalie has just begun to become comfortable physically hurting me when I play a zombie role. She hit me with a bat, a machete, an NES controller, and even knocked me down with the butt of a shotgun.
Everyone involved is for the project and loves the show in a similar way. I don’t want to bring someone on board that is going to be a damn diva. My parents own a construction company and it would be a shame if we would have to dig a few 6 feet holes.

As I mentioned the FX are great! But not just the CGI but the practical makeup is also great, can you tell us a little about your make-up artist and how the ideas come about?

Jennifer Hernandez, my fiancé, does most of the make-up. I do the special FX obviously a big inspiration for me is FreddieW. Damn, that guy is a fucking boss at FX. As much as I enjoy movie style muzzle flashes and other trappings, I want season 2 to have more of a documentary feel to it. So I opted for realism over style, but people do love them muzzle flashes.
For the zombie make-up, I just tell Jen what stage of decay the zombie is to be and she takes care of the rest. As far as the costumes and character designs, I live in Texas. It isn’t uncommon to see rednecks so recreating those sorts of stereotypes isn’t very difficult, but giving each character their own niche, that took some creative work.

Were you always a fan of the Zombie/horror genre and what would you say are some of the horror movies that inspire you?

I watched a lot of horror movies as a kid, zombie films included. The films inspired me to create monsters, which I love to do, and they also sparked an interest in filmmaking. When I was a young teen I thought about becoming a director as I had a plethora of ideas, but I was discouraged by the limitations around me at the time. I grew up in a household where work was valued over creativity. My parents did not dismiss my creative projects, but they would encourage me to follow a more stable path. Even now, I’m studying to be a therapist, probably and LCP, as people will always have drama and many will pay to for an unbiased, non-judging ear. But while I continue my studies, what is it that takes up the majority of my time? Creative prospects such as Zombie Hunter, Deadman’s Tome, and writing short stories consume my time when I’m not working or spending time with my fiancé.
My favorite horror film would have to be Halloween. Micheal Myers, a psychotic man with a mind and soul completely consumed by darkness (another words a sociopath), struck me as something that could actually exist and that scared me. Other characters like Jason and Freddy, while they are awesomely evil in their own way, their origin stories and/or existence require suspension of disbelief and superstition.
My favorite zombie film would have to be the Night of the Living Dead. A great classic that laid out the foundation for other zombie films and other creative works. Many zombie purists, the “zombies don’t run” type back their reasoning with the lore that George Romero established.

Since The Walking Dead hit TV it seems that the market has been flooded with a ton of Zombie titles, for me personally yours stood out because of the humour that I have seen a lot in other projects that for me just doesn’t quite work but does in Zombie Hunter, was it always intended to be humorous?

I can’t deny that The Walking Dead and along with the surge of zombie types in video games have benefited the reception of Zombie Hunter. I also get inspiration both externally and internally, so I see what others do and wonder how can I make something that stands out. After all, a web series needs to stand out, otherwise it has no real edge or additional offering than what one can find on TV.
While I enjoy horror and suspense, I wanted to do something very different with Zombie Hunter. For me, it’s hard to take a zombie apocalypse seriously, at least a version as depicted in Night of the Living Dead or any other show where the dead somehow manage to walk again. There are people out there that actively stock up on guns , ammo, and food as if waiting for that day when dead come back. Some people going as far as to rig their truck into some sort of redneck battle truck. I would love to have Nathan drive one of those. It just seems so weird to me. They become the butt of a joke, a joke that they are completely oblivious too. But while I dismiss them, there is one fact that I can count on here in Texas. If the dead ever tried to leave their graves, they would be greeted by gun lovin’ Texans and uh, escorted accordingly.
Imagine a gang of redneck vigilantes running a task force to slay them rotting bastards. It doesn’t take long for it to become a comedy.

Can you tell us of anymore future projects you have lined up and will there be a season 3?

A third season could happen. I can’t say for certain as Zombie Hunter is at the mercy of just about everyone’s schedules and what not. The intent and passion is there though.
Other projects, well, Dedman Productions has another web series that hasn’t gone very far. It is a show about these video game obsessed delinquents. You know, the type of guys that smoke weed and play games all fucking day. The two episodes were essentially a pilot and serves as a way to test what works and what doesn’t. The show is called Casual Gamers, an ironic title, and will receive a major overhaul towards the end of this year.
There is another zombie related project I have been chomping at the bit to do. Zombie Times or Life as a Zombie is pro-zombie “reality show” about a zombie living or at least trying to live in a world that actively hates them.
The guys that help out with Zombie Hunter talked about doing a paranormal mockumentary where we mock the hell out of shows like Ghost Adventures. I can already see a fohawk tough guy trying to provoke ghosts by verbally abusing them. Oh wait, that’s already what happens on that show.

If you had the chance to get any actor on board who would you love to work with?

Any actor? That’s a tough one to answer, but I would have to go with fucking Zack Galifinakis. I could see him play a role in Zombie Hunter and he wouldn’t have to change much. Perhaps he could be Bucks brother.
Dwayne The Rock Johnson makes an appearance…. I might be kidding. It is a scene that is hard to describe, but it involves a zombie getting beaten down by the image of the Rock.

We were lucky to get Cheryl Stell, an international Playboy model, to star in season 1. She is in the Zombie Spray episode. Elvis was so freaking nervous. First, he has like zero acting experience and this playboy model is standing next to him and, what’s this, she touched him. I remember my fiancés reaction when I told her, yeah so a playboy model is coming over. Good times.

What would you say your own personal Favourite moments have been from making season 1 and 2?

Favorite moments for season 1: working with Cheryl Stell, watching Elvis embody Nathan Greene, and the big daddy scene.
Favorite moments for season 2: Buck’s first house call, Tiff beats down a zombie with an NES controller, Nathan takes on a zombie soldier, and when Tiff feed energy drinks to a zombie.

I could describe them to you in detail, but uh, I think the headings work just enough without giving anything important away.

Any final messages for readers of Jonnys cult films and your fans over here in the UK?

I guess I should say, you know that stereotype about every Texans owning a gun and a horse? Well guess what, it’s completely wrong. In Texas, you’re not considered a Texan unless you own like five guns, man enough to stir hot coals with your dick, and can tolerate some fucking Lone Star.
On a serious note, I hope you guys enjoy Zombie Hunter. I really don’t know how receptive the humour will be to you folks overseas, but there is more to it than just Texas twang, redneck jokes, and sexual innuendos. The show features a mix bag of jokes and gags from dry humour, verbally explicit, irony, and of course, zombie comedy.

THE DEVIL’S BUSINESS-DVD Release 10th September.

Hello Folks,
Jonny T here with a great looking British movie The Devil's Business, Set for DVD release on 10th September and has been compared to the excellent Kill List, From director Sean Hogan and some great reviews on IMDB this looks set to be one of the the little gems of the year, Watch this space for a review coming very soon!
Jonny T.


 ‘A return to the hammer days when horror wasn’t afraid to hold your gaze and send a shiver of fear down your spine’ Ben Wheatley, director of KILL LIST ‘Excellent…has a strong air of dread and menace’  Kim Newman, Screen International  ‘Pinter-esque, character-driven, genre-crunching horror’ Damon Wise, Empire Online Two hit men are sent to murder an old associate of their underworld boss.

SINISTER-Starring Ethen Hawke In UK Cinemas October 5th!

“One of the most memorable horror films of the year.”

                                         Dread Central

Hello people,
Jonny T here bringing you new that the creepy looking SINISTER starring Ethen Hawke has now a UK cinema release date of October 5th, so with Paranormal Activity 4 hitting it's going to be one hell of a creepy month in the cinema and it's about time, i personally think it's been quite a week year for horror but hopefully with all hallows month things will start going bump in the night!
Also below i have stuck on the 2nd released trailer for SINISTER,
Jonny T.

The producer of “Insidious” and “Paranormal Activity” delivers a chilling horror like no other with a movie that is being hotly tipped as the most effective edge-of-your-seat cinematic experience of the year.
Official Facebook group---->

Producer Jason Blum (Insidious; Paranormal Activity1, 2 and 3), co-writer/director Scott Derrickson (The Day The Earth Stood Still; The Exorcism Of Emily Rose; Hellraiser: Inferno) and stars Ethan Hawke (Daybreakers; Assault On Precinct 13; Before Sunset), Wincent D’Onofrio (Chained; Staten Island; Brooklyn’s Finest), James Ransome (Treme; Generation Kill; Prom Night) and Fred Dalton Thompson (Law & Order).

Desperately in need of a best seller to revive his struggling career, true crime writer Ellison (Ethan Hawke), moves his family to the scene of his most recent story; the unsolved, gruesome murder of a loving, happy suburban family.
Shunned by the local community and strained by his obligations to his family, the discovery of a batch of home movies in the attic offers Ellison shocking proof to the crime he is investigating. Ellison notices the same unidentified figure appearing in each of the 8mm films, leaving him convinced that all the incidents are linked by a truly bizarre connection. As his investigations uncover the terrifying truth he starts to lose his grip on reality and it soon becomes clear that he is placing his own family in harm’s way.

It’s like “8MM” meets “The Shining”. A supremely creepy horror, full of dread, shocking images and almost unbearable tension, this one is pretty much guaranteed to give audiences nightmares. It also features a superb central performance by Ethan Hawke.

“An extremely effective horror feature; one that creates its own highly original mythology, and wholeheartedly terrifies from start-to-finish.” –

“A dark and stormy horror movie of the Stephen King variety… the supernatural figures are among the scariest to appear in an American horror movie since ‘The Grudge’.” –

“An incredibly classy production… not only is it skilfully shot, with truly chilling found footage, but the score is a masterpiece of electronic dread.” – Sound On Sight.

“A deeply frightening horror film that takes its obligation to alarm very seriously. If this isn’t the most disquieting movie I see in 2012, I don’t know if I’ll be able to handle whatever is.” –

“A hair-raising descent into terror that evokes the spirit of horror classics like ‘The Changeling’ or ‘The Amityville Horror’.” –

“The scares are not just intense but unyielding in this compelling horror yarn.” – Variety.

“Admirably intense… ‘Sinister’ is just a bad-ass little horror flick.” –

Impressive in its restraint at its quieter moments, and powerfully disturbing at its nastiest… a darkly entertaining terror tale.” –

Michael Biehn & Jennifer Blanc interview.

Hello guys and thank you for taking the time to answer some questions for Jonnys Cult Films! Jonny and I are huge fans of films from the 80’s particularly some of those films that I’m sure you are asked about all the time, before we get onto that I would like to talk about your new movie the Victim, which you are both starring in, writing, producing, and even directing! What can you tell us about the film?

Michael: Well it’s an exploitation film and a thriller with a twist or two and nods to other filmmakers who I’ve learnt from over the years.

The film has yet to be released over here in England; the release date is late September. I see that the Victim is already doing well and horror fans seem to like it. I hear you were influenced by Robert Rodriguez and the whole ‘Grindhouse’ genre. That being said you have used some great actors like Danielle Harris and made great use of the tight budget. What have you both learned most about the film making process that you will take into other productions?

 Jennifer: Oh wow, we really have learnt a lot. I always learn a lot more from Michael though. He is so good with film! Hence all is awesome roles really. But I think he even learned more about how tough the process is and can be.

Is it true that on the first day of the 12 day shoot you turned up on set naked? Michael: I did...then

Jennifer: got naked and we shot the sex scene! Lol.

Didn’t you also pass out during a strangulation stunt?

Michael: Yes for a few seconds! But I won’t be doing that in that way again, believe me!

Michael, over the years you have had some massive hits on your resume’ with Terminator, Aliens, the Abyss, the Rock, Tombstone etc. You have also had more than your share of set backs. I’m talking about your role of Kyle Reese being reduced to a cameo in the Directors cut in T2, you were oddly written out of Alien 3 and missed out on a role in Avatar because James Cameron didn’t want the reunion of yourself & Sigourney Weaver to over shadow the story. I made that sound like James Cameron was to blame a little which wasn’t my point but in general it seems that you are greatly under used in mainstream Hollywood. Is this one of the reasons why you are deciding to produce your own projects these days?

Michael: I really credit Jim Cameron for giving me a career and I wouldn’t question Jim Cameron’s decisions. He is so smart! But saying that, the Aliens situation I was very upset with but it all worked out well.

My twelve year old daughter Molly also writes for the blog and offers her unique view on horror films that interest her. Molly’s favourite film is James Cameron’s Titanic and she told me you might have been involved with that film somehow. Can you tell us more?

Michael: I was considered for the role Billy Zane played! He really was perfect for that role.

Jennifer, you and Michael are married, you act together in many projects and are now producing together as well. Does working so closely all the time affect your personal lives and do you fall out over the decision making process? Surely you must have argued about your production company being called Biehn-Blanc or Blanc-Biehn!

Jennifer: Lol, we do fight and then we make up both very passionately!
Yes, the company clearly should be called Biehn-Blanc but that doesn’t sounds as good so I win Hahaa!!

According to IMDB you both have at least five movies already in production as well as the possibility of a sequel to the Victim. Do you have a dream project that you one day hope to make or actors you would really like to work with?

Michael: Yes, The Farm and Hidden In The Woods remake are both very exciting for us.

Well that’s it! Thanks you so much for spending time on these questions. It is a real honour to have the opportunity to interview one of my childhood icons. Before I go I would like to share this little story with you. Around 1990 my dad took me to see your movie ‘Navy Seals’ in our local theatre. I would have been about twelve years old and was foolishly wearing a Bart Simpson T shirt which made me look a lot younger than the 15 rating which the movie had. The usher gave my dad a real hard time demanding to know what year I was born etc. My dad was desperately trying to do the math in his head that would have confirmed I was old enough which took him about five minutes and a lot of finger counting, he was under pressure! Eventually the usher took pity on us and we got in and loved it! It had that unique charm that only action films of that time could pull off. Having said that I would have loved to have seen you in the Expendables!

Jennifer: Thanks so much for the interview!
Michael: Hahaa, love it!

Gavin Jennings.

Thanks again To Michael and Jennifer for taking time to grant us this interview.
The Victim is out On DVD & Blu-Ray 24 Sep 2012 from Anchor Bay.

“A twisted, sleazy little film that will make grindhouse fans quite happy”

                                                                  Ain’t It Cool News

James Cameron’s original prodigy Michael Biehn makes his directorial debut in true grindhouse grandeur.

Directed by screen veteran Michael Biehn (The Terminator; Aliens; The Abyss) and stars Jennifer Blanc (The Divide; Dark Angel), Danielle Harris (Stake Land; Hatchet II; Urban Legend), Ryan Honey (Star Trek: Enterprise; ER; NCIS) and Tanya Newbould (Rush Hour 2; Red Dragon; X-Men: The Last Stand).


During a social outing deep in the quiet woodland with close friend Mary, Annie’s life is put in jeopardy when she is witness to a violent act at the hands of two Sheriff’s Deputies. Fleeing from the attackers she stumbles across Kyle, a shady recluse living in a cabin the middle of the woods. The rugged loner stays far from civilisation, which is until a knock on the door throws his solitary life into chaos. Having been affected by Mary’s desperate bid for her life, Kyle bravely decides to take Sheriff’s law into his own hands. Two worlds collide in this psychological thriller that will make you question your trust in mankind. Who is The Victim?

Having emerged from the most pivotal Sci-Fi films ever to grace our screen, Michael Biehn takes to the Director’s chair to gain ownership of the grindhouse genre having already channelled his onscreen vivacity in Robert Rodriguez's “Planet Terror” and having learnt the modus operandi from a directing mastermind in James Cameron.

Let The Bullets Fly- Review + 3 COPIES TO GIVEAWAY!!!

Hello Good people!
Jonny T here with my review of Let the bullets fly due for release by Metrodome Pictures on the 27th of August plus i have been fortunate enough to be given 3 copies to give away to 3 very luck winners! So after the review i have set an question for you all, all details after this review.


Starring Jiang Wen, Ge You and Chow Yun-Fat In lawless1920’s rural China, legendary bandit “Pocky” Zhang (Jiang Wen) and his gang stage a train robbery. Shocked to discover that, instead of silver, the only thing left on the train is the con man Tang (Ge You). Desperate, Tang explains that he’s on his way to GooseTown, where he’s bought himself a governorship. If allowed to live, he will help Zhang assume the governorship in his place… where Zhang can make more money in a month as a corrupt politician than he can in a year’s worth of train robberies.  But neither realises that Goose Town is already under the iron rule of the wealthy Master Huang (Chow Yun Fat, The Killer, Hard Boiled), whose charming exterior conceals a ruthless, conniving crime-lord.
Thus begins an escalating series of hyper-violent (and hilarious) mind games between the bandit and the crime lord, while the devious Tang tries to play both sides until he can exit the situation…preferably with a profit. The stakes quickly rise to ludicrous proportions in this masterfully vicious, pitch-black action-comedy (China’s highest grossing film of all time), and you’ll be laughing the entire time as double- and triple-crosses, razor-sharp wordplay, and hundreds of thousands of bullets explode across
the screen. DVD Release date: 27th August


So the film opens up and we see a shot of a high speed moving train being pulled along by several white horses whilst the lord and lady are basically doing all the rich things eating and drinking to excess surrounded by the finest china and luxuries,  The carriage behind them is packed full of soldiers with muskets pointed out of every available window in case of an attack by lawless bandits, the we get to see the lawless bandits perched up on the hills with guns pointed at the train, one of them takes several shots towards the horses and a couple of seconds pass and nothing happens at which point one of them comments"Nothing has happened" to which the ring leader replies "let the bullets fly" We wait again, 1.....2....... boom! All the horses reigns snap into pieces and they all bolt away, cut to the track somewhat in front of the train where another bandit embeds an axe, the train hits this full force and in a crazy as hell scene does a complete somersault off the track and drops straight into a lake, the bandits have got what they wanted, or have they?
So that is just within the first 5 minutes and boy what an opener it is! We then get to meet the legendary Chow Yun-Fat the wealthy leader leader of Goose Town who it has to be said is not a nice man at all, i don't really want to give too much away but the film unfold that end's up in a brilliantly clever game of cat and mouse as both Chow and the bandit leader try through the film to outwit each other with truly hilarious results, not saying that it is all comedy its got violence and a load of action!I do have to say also that the visual effects are greatly done and it is also brilliant for me personally  to see Chow back in his native Asia making movies again and he certainly hasn't lost any of his charms, showing what a great actor he is as in Hard boiled as a serious hit man through to earlier titles like Tiger on beat that as with this shows off his great range of acting skills, so in summary i would definitely give this one a go, it has to be said it's up there with some of the better Asian films released in the last few years, the end scene alone is worth getting it for when they pull up in a deserted town and try to entice a reaction several times without luck but then..... ah i can't say!! Seek this one out if you can or of course enter the contest below, great stuff!

Good day Folks!
Jonny T here bring you news of the Cinema, DVD and Blu-Ray release of the fantastic looking British horror INBRED, From director Alex Chandon for me personally it's great to see him back and with a pretty big release, i knew Alex many years back when he did some of his 1st features named Bad Karma followed by the great Drillbit and i remember owning them on VHS! And i also remember another great film of his Pervirella starring the awesome scream queen Emily Booth, So set for release in Cinema's 21st of September and the DVD/Blu-Ray release on 8th of October packed with a ton of extras this is shaping up to be one of the Horror Highlights of the year and it's a rare thing these days to see a film made by a true horror fan for true horror fans, Watch this space for my review coming soon!
Jonny T.

“INBRED stands loud and proud as the modern king of sick killer mutant family movies.”

Four young urban offenders and their care workers embark on a community service weekend in the strange, remote Yorkshire village of Mortlake, which prides on keeping itself to itself. Visiting the local pub, ‘The Dirty Hole’ which serves home-made (and suspiciously hairy) pork scratchings, they quickly realise they’ve made the wrong holiday choice.  A minor incident with some local inbred youths rapidly escalates into a blood-soaked, deliriously warped nightmare for all involved and it’s just a case of who will survive, and what will be left of them?

DIRECTOR Alex Chandon
 STARRING Jo Hartley, James Doherty, James Burrows, Seamus O’Neill, Dominic Brunt THEY CAME IN PEACE. THEY LEFT IN PIECES,INBRED, Directed by ALEX CHANDON (Cradle of Fear), is one of the most hotly anticipated genre films of 2012. Officially selected for 2011’s FRIGHTFEST, the film has grown and grown in notoriety and now the wait is finally over as this dark, witty, yet hilariously twisted tale is unleashed in cinemas 21 September with a DVD/ Blu-ray release 8 October. Starring JO HARTLEY (This is England 86/88, Ill Manors) and SEAMUS O’NEILL (Dead Man’s Shoes, War Horse) as well as upcoming stars; JAMES BURROWS (Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood) and Nadine Rose Mulkerrin (Waterloo Road), INBRED boasts some stunningly realistic visual effects as well as an appearance from The Horror Channel’s EMILY BOOTH and an unexpected but inspired cameo from Emmerdale’s DOMINIC BRUNT as a chainsaw wielding henchman called ‘Podge.’

The Last Stand - Arnie is Back!

Hello Folks,
Jonny T here, well we all knew it would happen after his stint in politics and yes indeed Arnie is back! Now what Drew my attention this is not just the fact that he has returned to the big screen in his first full feature in many years but the fact that it is directed by non other than Jee-Woon Kim, Jee-Woon Kim is as you would say a legendary Asian director and has to be said along with Takashi Miike one of my personal favourite Directors, Director of such classics as A bitter sweet life, A tale of Two Sisters, The good, The Bad, The Weird and the absolute classic I Saw The Devil, so from the trailer and if any of you have seen The Good, The Bad, The Weird you certainly know that Jee-Woon Kim can most definitely direct action sequences, so coming in 2013 this looks a pretty promising return for Arnie with a top notch Director in the hot seat,
Bring it on!

Resurrection-From the depths of Cult corner!

Cult corner: Resurrection (1999)
Cult Corner is a new feature where Jonny and I offer our thoughts on movies that for whatever reason have got lost along the way. Maybe a film was marketed incorrectly or its release was over shadowed by a similar title coming out, maybe at the time people just didn’t get it. Here in Cult Corner we celebrate those movies and give them their fifteen minutes. 
This week’s title getting pulled from the archives is Russell Mulcahy’s 1999 flop ‘Resurrection’ starring the original Highlander Christopher Lambert.
Resurrection is a thriller similar in feel to David Fincher’s brilliant Se7en. It was released at the turn of the millennium to cash in on the paranoia that was rife at the time. People were worried that the world’s computers would blow up causing mass devastation and Religious nuts were convinced it was the end of humanity. Perfect time to bring out a film about a psycho re-creating the body of Christ in time for Easter right? Well yes, if only Universal weren’t releasing Schwarzenegger’s End of days, another horror thriller with ties to the religious occult around the same time. Oh, and let’s not forget Denzil Washington’s serial killer thriller Bone collector who’s main protagonist also appeared in Resurrection!

Christopher Lambert plays Cajun homicide detective John Prudhomme. A man at war with himself over the death of his young son. Transferred to Chicago he is assigned to the brutal murder of a man whose arm was severed with the message ‘’He is coming’’ written in blood. After a few more bodies of men also with limbs removed are discovered it is clear that a serial killer is literally building a body of Christ to resurrect. So far so samey right? Well Resurrection’s clichés are one of its main problems. On paper it just doesn’t sound much. That being said there is much to like. Resurrection is very well made for starters. The story, albeit contrived is enjoyable enough. It was co-written by Lambert and let’s not forget he and Mulcahy both brought us the epic Highlander! It’s also pretty well shot and gives the film the feel of of a much higher budget. I like Schwarzenegger as much as the next man but I’m willing to bet that his fee for End of Days alone was more than Resurrections entire cost. From a casting point of view Resurrection doesn’t disappoint either. I’m not Lambert’s biggest fan by any means, I find him odd to look at and his voice grates on me and that laugh… Arrrgh! He is perfectly acceptable in this though as is his partner Leyland Orser and CSI NY regular Robert Joy. Most pleasing is that the film is suitably gory and earns its adult rating. Far too often these days a film will be cut to earn a lower rating in the hope of a wider audience, thankfully this isn’t the case here and the dismembered corpses are well presented for all to see! Sadly the ending isn’t brilliant and is a little bit to ‘gung ho’ than was needed. I’ll leave it up to the viewer to decide whether or not the twist was obvious or not.   
So there you have it. Resurrection is one of the best ‘okay’ serial killer movies of the 90’s. Below it’s tried and tested formula is a perfectly enjoyable adult thriller. Sure it treads very closely to Se7en’s far superior silk coat tails but not to the point that it deserves the obscurity that has dogged it over the years. At 108 minutes Resurrection is time well spent by anyone’s standards.
Resurrection is available from all good bargains bins now!

Pentathlon-Blu-Ray Review

After winning Olympic Gold in Seoul, East German pentathlete Eric Brogar (Lundgren) takes the opportunity to escape his past and the demands of his tyrannical coach, Heinrich Mueller (Soul), and flees to the freedom of the West with the help of a beautiful American athlete.
Several years later, Mueller has given up coaching and turned his dubious talents to neo-Nazi terrorism and a series of attacks on German government officials. Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, Brogar has slipped into an alcoholic depression and ekes out a meagre living working at a local diner. Still angered by Brogar’s betrayal and driven by a need for revenge, the psychotic Mueller first targets Brogar’s father before flying to LA to finish off his former star athlete once and for all. In an attempt to get his life back on track, Brogar has begun training once more, this time at the woodland retreat of his former girlfriend. But the arrival of Mueller, who has since teamed up with Brogar’s arch rival Jurgen Reinhardt and a group of neo-Nazi sympathizers in the US, means Brogar will soon have to turn his skills to something more than winning medals.

Good day good people,
Jonny T here with my thoughts on the 80's cheese fest that is Pentathlon, "Hards sports to test a mans skills""History is Made of chaos and murder" are just a couple of tag lines that made me laugh out loud!The story starts of in East Germany 1972 where we see a race between several blond haired blue eyed boys whilst under the very watchful eye of there Nazi like trainer David Soul who by the way has such a brilliantly funny German accent you cannot help but laugh! The young boy that is Dolph loses the race and is immediately slapped by David Soul who then tells him "YOU HAVE FAILED!!" nice!
We then shoot forward to the opening ceremony of the 1988 Souel Olympics with a great voice over describing the Pentathlon events, we then get to see Dolph's 1st event Swimming, he wins, then Fencing, he wins, then shooting, he wins then the final event of the day equestrian and guess what....he wins! All these events are watched under the beady eye of David Soul who afterwards at dinner he admits to Dolph that he is "Proud of Him" but then again Dolph has grown to 7ft tall and built like a brick shithouse so i think if he would have tried to slap him good old Dolph would have gone all Ivan Drago on his ass!
Dolph the casually walks to say hello to Team U.S.A and wants to swap tops with a team member so he can have a U.S.A top, A nice gesture you would think but this totally outrages David Soul who storms across to bring Dolph back and says to a Black athlete" Speak when you are spoken to, i am a white man!" Yep, shocking!
We then move to the next day where Dolph has his final event, running, this is the one that  has always bothered him as the memory of the Soul slap has troubled him over many years, but guess what, he wins!
So with now being a gold winner this is where it really does start to kick off, Dolph wants out of East Germany and the oppression and comes up with a plan with a fellow athlete to wear a Team USA top and sneak past the guards whilst doing an American accent, we see him practise reading on a piece of paper with lines like "Hey Dude, are you pork chop?" wtf??? But it works! Things transpire and Dolph manages to escape his camp but that brings the full wrath of slapper Soul who completely loses the plot and this is a sight to behold when he starts shouting in his amazing German accent.
So with Dolph on the run and loads of fights and car chases and explosions and cheese you know what you are getting, by no means a classic but certainly worth picking up, although probably totally unintentional this film is as funny as it gets,
Get some Nostalgia in your player!
7/10 Jonny T.
