Currently reading Stephen King's latest book, Elevation*.

 I loved this. Short but oh so sweet. A beautiful story.

Generally I've liked this series of Doctor Who...

But that latest episode was bloody awful.

Just really, really bad.

Interested in this myself.
Was looking at that volume as it's about £30.

Characters. Always. Sorry to those creators but if you write/draw/ ink for Batman/Dredd/Superman/Punisher/Constantine/ and a few others then I will have enjoyed your work.

Starcrash is terrible, Tips, why would you waste your time watching bad films when there are so many good films out there?


 I can do both.

Watched Three Billboards in Ebbing, Missouri last night.

Superb!

Prof might not but I will! Starcrash is crazy, bonkers and inept in a way only and italian knock off could be and I freaking adore it.



 I won't have a word said against Star Crash. Well, not since I met Luigi Cozzi at the Profondo Rosso shop in Rome (where he often tends the till) and we had a great conversation about Contamination and Star Crash and then he signed some books I was buying.

A thoroughly decent man banging out a Star Wars clone for little/ no money but with his tongue firmly in his cheek.

Yeah, I'm with you on that one.
I bought the originals too from DH. At least they changed them back for the most recent reprints.

Yeah, looks like the test stage but a good level to get on as you normally get 3-4 issues for free plus some gifts.

Thankfully the Doctor Who Complete History finishes in 8 issues time.

Aye those rune calling cards where a nice touch, missed out on one as I bought in store at Fopp, but a quick message to Indicator and an order of Wolf and The Sinbad Trilogy boxset and they've stuck a card in for me. Good lads, are independent labels.

They are indeed!
It's a great label. Got everything they have put out so far.

Definitely filmed live as proven when they were back stage and were flicking between channels. The news on BBC 1 at the time was identical.

Those images could've been added in.

But if you turned over to BBC 1 at that very moment that was what was showing. A live news programme.

That's even more fiendishly brilliant than I thought, then!

Only watched it once but I think there are loads of stuff like than, including the tweet from Shearsmith that came up live on my Twitter feed as he tweeted it in the show.

Night of the Demon (1957)

The superb early folk horror masterpiece finally has a top dollar blu-ray courtesy of Indicator. There's nothing extra I can add to what I believe is a fan favourite in these parts, it's glorious and one of the icons of 50's brit horror, with effects sequences that cast there influence for decades. If you can swing for the pricey but phenomenal new blu set, do so, it's got all 4 different cuts restored in glorious 2K, as well as substantial material on Casting the Runes as a through line for folk horror.

I've got that set, just not had a chance to watch it yet. If you ordered direct from Powerhouse then it came with an exclusive calling card, as seen in the movie, with the faint runes on it.
Might well be my viewing for tomorrow night.

Funnily enough I've been having an issue with my amp so when the sound cut out the missus got annoyed and said it was time to buy another one. I twigged that it wasn't the amp but she fell for it.

Brilliant episode. So audacious.

Need to watch it again as it whizzed by so quickly.

The Fog, John Carpenter. [Horror Channel] Some genuine scares I forgot its subtext of Colonial guilt for the founding of America on a lie. Very prescient considering Black Panther and others have mentioned such, Hollywoods understandable fear at what's happening in the world. Carpenters film is worth a rewatch despite its seventies dress code. However, the moment where one of the dead sailors gets up and wanders around to collapse at Jamie Lee Curtis's feet- AND then write the number 3 onto the Hospital floor using a scalpel is daft and adds nowt to what went before.     
Second only to The Thing in my top Carpenter films. I love the opening ten minutes in particular -- wonderful, slow-burn creepiness. And of course the soundtrack, as always: brilliant.

That's my top two Carpenter films as well. Then Followed by Escape to New York and Assault on Precinct 13.
