A place of hope

Written by Molly I Jennings

I couldn’t see any way out of this mess the zombies that craved our flesh grew ever closer. Their mournful cries echoed down the dark dank eerie alleyway, they echoed and bounced around our skulls. Sabrina my only nearest and dearest friend was terrified. Her family had all been tragically eaten alive. The sadness had stayed in her eyes; her dishevelled black hair stuck out at an angle…

Earlier that day.

I had woken to the sound of screaming. I streaked downstairs to see a pale old man with glassy white eyes and blood all over his torso biting Mr Jackson’s neck. Blood spurted everywhere it flowed out of the bite marks in his neck like a waterfall. It was a truly terrifying experience! The pale man looked up and saw me he dropped his victim and staggered towards me his arms spread out like an eagle. Mr Jackson’s body dropped like a stone. Sabrina came to the top of the stairs oblivious to what had happened to her father. Her mother must have still been in bed. After a few minutes the pale man went back to eating Mr Jackson. Sabrina hissed at me to come upstairs I obediently followed her into her room. She was watching the news channel on her TV a new headline flashed up boldly it read “mutilated humans walk the streets” She slumped onto her bed and changed the channel again it spoke of mutilated humans walking the streets of Britain but the news reporter then added

“Stay in your homes, lock all your doors and windows. Close all of your curtains, if your pets have been outside in the last 24 hours and they show signs of drowsiness or keep trying to bite you then also remove them from your house and definitely do not make any loud noises or shine bright lights. If you know anyone who has been bitten immediately remove the carcass out of your home. Do not keep them as they are highly dangerous. If you find you can not get the bodies out then the only way to stop them is to kill them. Do this by stabbing it in the heart or removing the head. The government are going to deploy the army very soon”

Sabrina got up and went to her mother’s room. The door had already been opened I knew what was coming. I heard two men eating loudly. I quietly entered the lavender smelling room. There was blood all over the tartan carpeted floor just behind the bed was Sabrina’s mother. She had been ripped apart her right arm had been bitten clean off. The pale man and Sabrina’s father were eating her right arm. I couldn’t watch any more I ran out of the room to Sabrina. Sabrina peeked into the room and saw the scene. She calmly walked to her room shut the door and sat down. She quietly began to sob. After a little while she stopped. She got up, grabbed her bright green rucksack and began to pack: a spare pair of clothes, her I pod, her green toothbrush, her hair brush and her most prized possession a teddy bear wearing a red t-shirt that had a picture of her parents on it. Sabrina had been given it when she was born. She couldn’t sleep without it and now it would be the only thing she had left of her parents. She tip-toed down the stairs and went into the kitchen. She packed a lot of food and 4 bottles of water. Sabrina zipped up her bag and opened the front door I trailed behind her. She carefully shut the door… there were lots of Zombies down one end of the street. We could not go to the other end as it was a dead end. There was no where at all to go unless.

Sabrina began to groan and moan like a zombie she had got a very high level in her drama class it was a good thing too as she passed it off. We managed to sneak to the main road. We continued the act until we got to Auntie Elle’s house. The door was open and blood was spattered on the wall. Auntie Elle’s dislocated body was in various pieces on the floor. Uncle Ben came staggering through the hall way his eyes were glassy and his usual flushed colour was now an icy pale. In sheer terror we backed out of the house into a big crowd of Zombies.

They snarled and tried to eat us but we ran. We ran for our lives. We ran for everything we had. We ran. Straight down an alleyway. Brilliant. We kept backing down the alley. I could hear a dripping drain behind the zombies. Eventually we hit the wall. We were goners. We would die I knew it. I began to think what they were going to do to us. The zombies drew in even closer. I saw Mr and Mrs Jackson and Uncle Ben and Aunt Elle within the horde how could they kill Sabrina? There own daughter. There own niece. Sabrina began to pray then she started to sing her favourite song. What on Earth was she doing? I pondered she thought she could charm her way through the crowd didn’t she. Well it obviously didn’t work other wise they would have stopped drawing in closer! It was horrifying Sabrina was grabbed and was ripped …

I woke up and opened my yellow beady eyes. I was in my cosy basket I wish I would have had a dream of catnip instead. What a dream to have! Sabrina was sat cross legged in her chair and Mr and Mrs Jackson was sat on the sofa. None of the things in my nightmare were true. I was safe and warm in my basket licking my fur. Sabrina called me so I jumped up and sat on her lap for her to stroke me. I was home.

One from the Amicus Box-The House That Dripped Blood

The House that Dripped Blood- Amicus 1971.
Director: Peter Duffell
Writer: Robert Bloch

Hello Folks,

Jonny T here with one from the Amicus box set, Basically I recently brought the Amicus box set from Anchor bay, now this getting harder and harder to find, I already have the other 3 which are the Norman J warren, Pete Walker and The Tigon Collection, I do already own a few of the titles as individual DVD’s but really wanted to add this to my collection and was super pleased when I final got hold of it.

So I have decided to review all the films in all the box sets, this may be a long but I do think an extremely enjoyable task, I have decided to start with the Amicus one and picked out for the first review The House That Dripped Blood. This is the classic Amicus formula of various stories that are 1: Method for Murder 2: Waxworks 3:Sweets to the Sweet and finally 4: The Cloak, all stories contain some of the true greats such as Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Denholm Elliot, Ingrid Pitt and the great Jon Pertwee.

The film opens with Detective Holloway (John Bennet) who has been called in to investigate a case of a missing actor (Pertwee) who has disappeared whilst renting a house in the country, He is interviewing the chap who leases the property a one Mr A.J Stoker (one of the very many in jokes/nods to classic horror) and Mr Stoker proceeds to tell him about all the former tenants this is where we then get to see our 1st Story, Method For Murder.

Method For Murder.

Starring: Denholm Elliot (Charles Hillyer) Tom Adams (Dominick / Richard) Joanna Dunham (Alice Hillyer)

The story is of Writer Tom Hillyer and his decision to move away to a nice quiet retreat with his lady Joanna to create a new horror story, As with all the stories we see Mr Stoker showing them around the property and also with all the stories the new tenants are more than pleased to be there, at first anyway! So Hillyer settles down to start his new story, the story of Dominick a deranged escaped murder, Tom swears to Joanna that he has seen looking through the window of the house but only in his head of course, the story moves along at a great pace with Tom’s visions becoming more frequent and he even does a sketch of what Dominick looks like which when his visions become too real he screws up the sketch and takes a walk along the river, throws it in and watches it float away only to see Dominick on the embankment who proceeds to pick it up, Eventually telling Joanne that he is now in the house, of course he’s not, or is he? The Character of Dominick is played brilliantly and very eerily by Tom Adams with the character design of Dominick harking back to the good old Universal Monsters days, I Remember seeing this as a kid and the vision of Dominick in various places creeped me out! The story unfolds as if Hillyer is slowly losing his mind whilst Joanna appears nonchalant about the whole thing, so does she know more than she is letting on? Is he really going insane? I know most of you have probably seen it but I won’t spoil it for any of you that haven’t, needless to say that it ends with a great double twist!



Starring: Peter Cushing (Philip Grayson), Joss Ackland (Neville Rogers), Wolfe Morris (Waxworks Proprietor)

This segment tells the tale of Phillip Grayson (Cushing) who rents the secluded mansion as a getaway, he tells Stoker that he likes to be alone and seems somewhat of a loner, We see him with a black and white photograph of a girl, possibly a former lover but this is never really fully explained, He decides to go to the local town to take a look around and whilst there he notices a “Waxworks” so with curiosity he decides to take a look, Upon entering he notices that there is nobody behind the pay booth so decides to leave his money and take a look around, he browses, it’s the usual fair of gruesome waxworks until he discovers a mysterious exhibition piece behind a lace curtain, he pulls the cord to the curtains to discover an extremely realistic waxwork holding a severed head on a silver platter and the waxwork seems to bear an uncanny resemblance to his former love, he is hypnotised, when we then get to see the Curator explain a brief story of how the waxwork came about, He then returns to the house and rips the photograph of the girl in half, Later that night there comes a knock on the door from his old friend Neville, after a bit of catching up Neville see’s the torn up photograph and Phillip explains that neither of them could ever have her, so you get some kind of back story, maybe she was a women that tore their friendship apart? The next day Neville goes to the Waxworks and as with Phillip he also see and seems hypnotised by the wax effigy of the lady, Again later we get to see the crazy looking Curator who explains even more to the back story and this is where it all kicks off, again I shall not spoil this but I have heard people say that this is their least favourite, I can see why I guess but another sterling performance from Cushing makes this yet another great segment. An interesting footnote is that the during this segment Peter Cushing plays the song “Death and The Maiden” and that is what Director Peter Duffell wanted the film to be called as he hated the title The House that Dripped Blood.


Sweets to the sweet

Starring: Christopher Lee (John Reid), Nyree Dawn Porter (Ann Norton), Chloe Franks (Jane Reid)

John Reid seeks to find a place to live with his daughter Jane and it appears with this house he has found the perfect place; well we know how this will end! He arrives with his young and seeks to enlist the help of a Nanny, This is when Ann arrives, John questions her about her capabilities to cope with such a task and she explains that she was used to handling classes of 40 children, then she asks him why Jane is not in a normal school like other girls her age and he says she is not like other girls, Ann seems to take to Jane straight away as we see them take various country walks and get through lessons easily, But Ann gets to notice bit by bit that the way he treats her is not very nice to say the least even culminating in a scene where he slaps the small child across the face, Jane asks him where is her mother then he goes on to explain that she is dead, end of conversation!

He appears to be mellowing out a little bit when he gives her permission to buy his daughter some toys, so she goes off to town, comes back with a Jigsaw, a Word Puzzle and a Doll, The child is delighted as it appears that she has never been allowed toys before but when her father comes in and sees her holding the doll he shouts in rage and snatches it from the poor child and throws it on the fire, so what is going on? The next thing we see is Christopher Lee looking for some Candles and when he finds them there is only 4 left in the box so he confronts his daughter screaming”where are the rest of them!!??” which leads to him slapping her face, this seems to be the final breaking point for the girl where she then appears with a wax effigy of him and some very nasty looking pins, So you get the basic outline and you may well have guessed what indeed the girl is becoming and what her mother was before her, so sympathy for Mr Lee after all?You can decide.


The Cloak
Starring: Jon Pertwee (Paul Henderson), Ingrid Pitt (Carla Lind)

This Segment opens up with a great scene with Pertwee and Pitt riding in the back of a classic car in full actor regalia, she has the long floppy hat whilst smoking a cigarette and he in the full actor cravat, They arrive at the house and immediately fall in love with it, Paul Henderson (Pertwee) is working on his new movie Invasion of the Blood suckers which upon seeing the script dismisses the title as Ludacris (Maybe a dig by director Dufell?) and to say he is a Diva is an understatement! He arrives on set only to dismiss pretty much everyone around him and even the set which he repeatedly pokes with his walking stick saying “You could push peas through that!” also a classic line he says is something along the lines of “I love all the classic horror movies, Frankenstein, The Wolfman and Dracula, The Bela Lugosi one of course not that new chap!” So being a real method actor he sets out to find a real Cloak to make his role seem as authentic as possible he comes across an old curiosity shop (also featured in many a great Amicus movie) where the shop owner gives an old cloak that will work perfectly, with him purchasing it and leaving the shop the shopkeeper utters the words “I can now rest in peace” you then see him try the cloak on in his trailer only to notice that his reflection has disappeared in the mirror! Cue scene shoot, where he has to bite the neck of Ingrid Pitt where he takes it a little too far and actually bites her, much to her disdain and annoyance, So what is with this mysterious cloak? We get to find this out when he returns home and Ingrid appears in a great scene an the iconic image of the great Ingrid that is now seen all over the place, in all this it has to be said in my opinion is the weakest segment, it takes the turn from earlier stories that featured Maniacs, Murderers and witch’s to more of a comedic element, Something that was totally intentional according to Peter Dufell in the short documentary and like he said that’s why after this part of the film it couldn’t really return to serious scares, this leads to a showdown between Pertwee and Detective Holloway (John Bennet) that seems more Keystone Cops than classic Amicus with the frame rate speeded up to almost slapstick levels, we are then left with Mr Stoker asking “Do you know the secret of the house?” And just in case you don’t he does tell you.


So in summing up, My first film from the Amicus box set may not be the best received but for me personally it but a whole lot of great memories back and with each story running approximately between 20-25 minutes you certainly never get bored just a warm nostalgic feeling of seeing a classic that you may not have seen in years, Next time I shall be bringing you my thought on And Now the Screaming starts,

Jonny T.

She never utters a word, unable to tell her story, but the pieces of the puzzle soon come together; she’s been held captive for decades for reasons soon to surface.

DVD Release date / March 25th 2013Certificate TBC / TBC Minutes


Hello Folks,
Jonny T here with my review of Nordic Horror "THALE".
The Story starts out with our 2 main characters Elvis and Leo who work for a cleaning company but it's not your normal cleaning company it's one that cleans up the dead! The main guy Leo enlists the help of his good friend Elvis but it's clear from the outset that it's not his favourite choice of job as the first 5 minutes and throughout the film all he does is puke and with Leo describing how the current job they are working on involves scraping an old lady off the floor i can't say i blame him!
With that job finished they move on to the next,This is where we stay with things throughout the remainder of the movie, Upon arrival it seem like just a normal run of the mill clean up the dead type of job but when Elvis discovers a door in the basement that leads into what seems like some kind of lab things take a very different twist,The room contains such things as a fridge, a tape recorder, various medical implements and a bath with pipes going into it and it is filled with a milky like substance, Leo goes to get dinner from the van and tells Elvis not to touch anything but Elvis being Mr Curious decides to start playing the tape, we hear various things said that seem to be from the deceased old man then the noise of what sound like an animal screeching when all of a sudden a naked girls leaps up from the bath with a pipe attached to her mouth, to say Elvis is shocked is an understatement!

So Leo arrives back to see Elvis and the naked girl, now it has to be said that Leo is a great character in the respect that he shows no emotion whatsoever in any situation, so by the time the girl is on her countless out of date tin of food and about 18th cob Leo says he has rung the authorities and they are on the way, Elvis then wanders off as the girl seems to have disappeared only to find a small makeshift bedroom with the girl hiding under the bed, she reaches out and touches him resulting in visions in his mind of her upbringing and even more intriguing her discovery.She is found in a small cave as a baby by the mysterious old man and taken back to his home, where in it transpires that as she is being brought up by a Human she manages to take on a human form and not one of her own, the film then goes on to show the true creatures in brief glimpses that run here and there throughout the forest and they look great!Apparently the story is loosely based on true Nordic folklore which i for one after seeing this i Wonder if there are many more because the subject matter makes this a great film and it would be great to see some more of the tales brought to the screen.
So, in summing up Thale in my opinion is a great movie, the performances and atmosphere is superb,It looks great, the setting of the remote cabin in the extremely picturesque setting adds a ton of great scenes, done on a low budget but as i said the settings add a true feel of grandeur, all in all a great addition to the every growing great catalogue of Nordic Cinema.
Jonny T.

Thale is released on DVD on 25th March by Metrodome Pictures

Warner Bros. to release 'Supernatu​ral: The Anime Series' this May

“Highly recommended. Don’t waste a minute – get your hands on this must-have set!” - Fangoria

Supernatural: The Anime Series - On DVD 27 May 2013

DistributorWarner Bros


Release date27th May, 2013

Running time479 mins


The first-ever live-action television series to be re-imagined as an anime series, “Supernatural: The Anime Series” brings a whole new dimension to the internationally acclaimed hit TV phenomenon.

Creator Eric Kripke (Revolution; Supernatural; Boogeyman), voice actors Jared Padalecki (Supernatural; Friday The 13th; House Of Wax) and Jensen Ackles (Supernatural; My Bloody Valentine; Smallville), co-directors Atsuko Ishizuka (Aoi Bungaku; Top Secret – The Revelation; NANA; MONSTER) and Shigeyuki Miya (Lupin III; Blade; Bleach; High School Of The Dead), and production studio Madhouse (Ninja Scroll; Paprika; Summer Wars; The Girl Who Leapt Through Time; Death Note).


Having lost their mother, Mary, under mysterious paranormal circumstances at an early age, young Sam and Dean Winchester are raised by their father, who, driven by revenge, becomes an obsessive hunter and destroyer of supernatural creatures and entities. Years later, when their father mysteriously disappears and Sam’s girlfriend is killed in similar circumstances as their mother, the Winchester brothers follow in their father’s footsteps, travelling the back-roads, highways and byways of America in search of answers and vengeance. It is a journey that brings them face-to-face with unimaginable horrors, from demons and vampires to ghosts and shape-shifters, unites them with loyal allies and reveals their eventual and totally unexpected destinies.

Made with the blessing and creative input of the original show’s creator, Eric Kripke, and featuring the vocal talents of the live-action series stars, this animated series brilliantly covers the events of the first two seasons of “Supernatural” by recreating many of the original episodes while also introducing a whole batch of brand new material that explores the Winchesters’ previously unseen childhoods and expanding upon the stories of several secondary characters. The trump card, however, is the anime’s ability to go further, visually, than any live-action TV show could ever dream of going. The result makes for essential viewing for committed “Supernatural” fans and provides an ideal primer and introduction for those yet to become possessed by the haunting and action-packed saga of the Winchesters.

“Cool and unexpected… For creativity, you can’t get more eye-popping than some of the visions these Japanese animators have cooked up.” –

“Impressively sleek and efficient… the scale of the visuals is a lot more ambitious than anything live-action network TV could ever hope to match.” –

“Highly recommended. Don’t waste a minute—get your hands on this must-have set! If you haven’t watched a single episode of ‘Supernatural’, this is a perfect opportunity for new viewers to jump in.” – Fangoria.

“Supernatural: The Anime Series does not disappoint. With creator Eric Kripke’s blessing, the episodes based on existing episodes are cleverly re-imagined and enhanced, the freedom of animation allowing the storytellers to go where a live-action show with financial and physical – i.e. human – limitations can’t.” –

“The original stories offer fans of the show new adventures, leaving you wishing they could be adapted for real.” –

“Stands out from a lot of the other anime being produced recently.” – Anime News Network.

“An accomplished head-hunter risks everything to obtain a valuable painting owned by a former mercenary.”

Hello Folks,

Jonny T here with my review of Jo Nesbo’s Head-hunter’s, Now I had seen the poster around for this and thought it looked a bit shit to be honest so never bothered with it until a friend of mine said he had watched it and how good it actually was, so I was passing a Blockbuster that is closing down and decided of course to nip in and see what bargains I could get, and there on the shelf for £3 was Head-hunter’s so I snatched it up.
It tells the basic story of an art thief that poses as a corporate head-hunter to see if he can find out a little about his future employees (who never have a chance of a real job) and most importantly see what the know about art but even more important than that if they actually own any valuable and in his mind art he can steal and sell, This is set up in a great scene near the beginning of the movie where we see him conducting an interview in a very relaxed manner and asking questions such as “Are you married? Do you have children? Are they in school? Does your wife also work? Do you have a dog?” Now all the questions relate of course to the vacancy of the house during the daytime and more importantly the “do you have a dog?” question so he doesn’t get attacked, this question in particular leads to a great scene later in the movie of which I won’t spoil, The guy answers yes to all the questions then goes on to tell him that what he knows about art and he owns a very valuable painting himself, mistake!

The Man then tells him he has no chance of getting the job, obviously he looks shocked but again it is only a ploy, he tells him to return the next day at 12 o’clock to meet the director therefore having all the details and knowing he will be out the art theft is on, we then see how he pulls it off with the help of a security expert who can gain access remotely to peoples alarm systems and deactivate them at will, we then see him pulling off the theft by reproducing the exact painting in the form of a large exact replica photocopy, Breaking into the house, cutting out the painting and replacing it with the copy, job done!

The main man in question is Roger Brown played brilliantly by Aksel Hennie , At first you see him and his wife living the multi-millionaire lifestyle with his wife oblivious to what he really does for a living and her constantly wanting to start a family, life’s all good, that is until he picks on the wrong guy Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Clas Greve ) , from this moment forward the film twists and turns quicker and more times than a giant python chasing a pygmy!

So without revealing too much, All is not as perfect as it seems and it seems as with all criminals they have gotten away with it for so long that it’s bound to catch them up, the story takes on the basic premise then of the art thief being hunted down by the guy that wants to kill him and this man is one mean motherfucker as he discovers when he looks into his background and his mercenary secret service tracking device company, one tiny spoiler, the guy somehow manages to track him for a hell of a lot of the time and you are constantly wondering how the hell he is doing it and the reveal is brilliant, now on to the dog, the guy who is chasing him as one big ugly scary dog so he gets chased from cabin to cabin with the dog sniffing him out at every turn, this leads to a scene where he is in the toilet cabin, now I won’t say what happens apart from “HOLY SHIT!!” and by that I mean litteraly, it’s one hell of a stomach churning gross scene almost so bad you can smell it, it really does have to be seen to be believed.

So in Summing up, if you fancy a change from Horror you can’t really do much better than this, it does have its’ violent bits, gross bits, extremely clever twists and turns that keeps you guessing right up to the very last frame, Just under 90 minutes long and so many great scenes it never drags for a moment.
Go check it out!
