‘Legendary: Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ Board Game Review

8 hours ago

Although I can’t for the life of me think why it’s happening now (it is twenty years since the original series, so maybe that’s why) Buffy The Vampire Slayer has just been converted into the latest Legendary deck-building game. For those who are unfamiliar with them, the Legendary series is a collection of complete, out-of-the-box card games for one to five players that recreate pitched battles between famous (aka legendary) forces in popular universes from comics, film and television. Other universes to receive this treatment so far are Marvel, Aliens and Predator, for example, so you can probably imagine the kind of rivalry that you’ll see.

Legendary Buffy focuses exclusively on the 1997 TV series starring Sarah Michelle Geller et-al, and among the 501 cards (500 in later print runs thanks to a bonus “Dingoes Ate My Baby” card) you’ll find a set of fourteen cards for each »

10 hours ago

With over a decade of experience as a horror writer and director, Pat Higgins will be Horror-on-Sea Film Festival on Saturday 20th January with his latest Master Class: Fear and Film. I got chance to ask Pat a few questions about what we can expect from the talk, some of his influences in horror and the various incarnations of his film The House on the Witchpit.

What can we expect from the Master Class: Fear and Film?

We try to have a mix of useful tips and tricks for people making independent horror movies, along with unseen video clips and (hopefully) entertaining stories!

’78/52′ Review

12 hours ago

Featuring: Jamie Lee Curtis, Elizabeth Allan, Judith Anderson, Desi ArnazMarli Renfro, Mick Garris, Guillermo del Toro  | Written and Directed by Alaxandre O. Philippe

You don’t need to be a fan of Hitchcock to know the Psycho shower scene. It is woven into popular culture and for most of us we’ve seen it all our lives. 78/52 takes a look at the famous shower scene, what makes it so special, and why it is so celebrated….

The name 78/52 represents the 78 shots and 52 cuts that make up the death of Marion Crane (Janet Leigh), and the reason it is used as the name for this documentary shows the importance, as well as brilliance. A scene that took 7 days to shoot, it showed an obsession, especially when the film was shot on a 30-day schedule.

In many ways it shows the importance of the scene to Alfred Hitchcock, as if he »

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.10′ Review

14 hours ago

Written by Richard Dinnick | Art by Francesco Manna | Published by Titan Comics

I’ve come to learn that anything with Richard Dinnick writing it has some quality to it. Either it’s a bit quirky, mines an aspect of Dr Who others have left untouched or forgotten, or just excels at dialogue and character work. He seems to have found a good home with The Twelfth Doctor, suitably quirky and cranky in easy measure. As last issue was a ‘one and done’ deal, this issue sees the first part of a new two-parter, ‘A Confusion of Angels’. Let’s check it out.

If I had a pound for every time an adventure starts with The Doctor finding a drifting spacecraft I would be a millionaire. This time round though, The Doctor has a legitimate concern in that said giant drifting spacecraft has not issued any sort of distress call. The Doctor, »
