A few weeks back I read Robert W chambers King in yellow. It's a good book and a reccomended read for fans of horror and fantay fiction. While jobless i've decided to dabble with a little creative writing and i've written a short story based on Chambers book. Its flawed and my writing skills need some work but as a first effort I dont think its terrible.

unemployment. 01/03/2013-02/03/2013

Posted 2nd March 2013 at 04:54 PM by keirarts

So far unemployment is dull, I'm applying for jobs, two a day minimum though some days its pretty tough as theres not a great deal about.
I think one of the main problems is if/when I get something it'll have nothing to do with films, the tedium of a regular days work waiting to get home. It dosent help that i'm painfully single right now as well. This wasnt an issue so much when I was working, I had a lot on my plate and plenty of friends so the few evenings I had to myself usually involved...

Time to stop region locking discs?

Posted 23rd May 2012 at 08:52 AM by keirarts

Anyone else fed up with region locked blue-rays? Personally I love my ps3, it has great playback and is very easy to update, unfortunately its also difficult at best to make multi region, and any attempt to do so will be thwarted by the next firmware update.

So recently I picked up a blue-ray double bill of KEOMA/GRAND DUAL released by a company called mill creek. Everything they released up till now was totally region-free, and as the discs were so damned cheap it was well worth...

happy new year.

Posted 1st January 2012 at 07:16 PM by keirarts

Well, its been a pretty crappy new year in most respects, fortunately theres been more than a few good home entertainment releases that help take my mind off it.
We're living in what the chinese refer to as 'interesting times'. When they refered to interesting times they meant it as a curse and it's not to hard to see why. The whole global economy is on life support, and needing constant resussatation to make sure it dosent fall asleep amd never wake up, the world energy resources are dwindling...

Interactive terror.

Posted 10th June 2011 at 05:34 PM by keirarts

A darkened room, the place looks a mess. Theres blood across the walls and broken furniture everywhere. From somewhere distant I can hear moaning and the crackling of fire. My friends are all in the room now, grabbing health packs and assault rifles, moving around and checking adjacent rooms.

"you ready mate" one of my friends asks.

I check my assault rifle, its fully loaded.

"lets go!" I reply.

So, the bbfc have passed cannibal holocaust with only a few seconds worth of cuts of a muskrat being killed, as suitable for release in the uk.
Unfortunately to little to late considering most people saw the uncut version either on bootleg vhs or imported special edition dvd years ago.
Dont get me wrong, I'm glad their relenting, but it does beg the question 'whats the point of the bbfc?' Especially in the age of the internet.

Most wanted.

Posted 13th May 2011 at 05:54 PM by keirarts

Firstly just want to say on here..."welcome back dark side!"

Dark side magazine has been a rgular purchase by me since the halcyon days of rooting through cardboard boxes at car boot sales as a surly teen looking for illicit uncut thrills. A dedicated genre magazine with excellent retrospective articles on classic genre pictures, reviews, censorship watch and much more its been a part of my life. It was a real shame when last year, the magazine stopped turning up at my local...

A calamity of snakes (or the things you get for a fiver on amazon!)

Posted 20th April 2011 at 04:52 PM by keirarts

Theres a little consumer game I play on Amazon. If there's a spare few quid knocking about on my account I go on to Amazon, search for horror movies, select horror in the genre toolbar then narrow the search down to films under five quid. Try it you'd be surpised by some of the things you find on there!

Firstly you've got your supermarket horror, you know the stuff I mean, Dead silence, candyman, the children... Not BAD films per-se theres just an awful lot of them out there clogging...

R.I.P Dr Harris.

Posted 3rd April 2011 at 04:29 PM by keirarts

It is our sad duty at this time to report the tragic death of esteemed new orleans physician and good samaritan Dr harris who died yesterday evening in what police are describing as a 'freak glazing accident'. Originally named simon hull the good doctor changed his name to Harris to avoid any connections with his now famous yautsman brother Brian hull (pictured below) who died in a now legendary Zombie outbreak on the remote carribean island of matool.

One day we may all be downloading films.

Posted 30th March 2011 at 05:57 PM by keirarts

Ok, first and formost I do not believe that film piracy is right, not when decent quality versions of films are available legally. Ok now thats out the way an admission....

onece upon a time I used to buy pirated movies. Not the dodgy cam versions of big screen multiplex fodder though, mainly cult horror. Back before dvd, in the golden age of VHS there were few ways to get decent cult movies. The main and most legitimate way was to run the gauntlet of customs and excise with your...

When is a horror movie not a horror movie?

Posted 18th March 2011 at 05:04 PM by keirarts

Answer: When its a psychological thriller.
When its a meditation on faith.
When its a spiritual detective story.

Plainly and simply its when your a director whose made a horror film and your a little embarressed about the fact!

If like me, you spent your formative years in the late eighties and nineties, as the italian film industry wheezed its last and Horror all but dissappered you may have noticed how the genre was ometimes 're-defined....

When reality intrudes....

Posted 16th March 2011 at 10:33 PM by keirarts

Ever gone off a movie? By that I mean a film you previously either liked or loved then one day you find something out about the people involved or the production.
I raise this point namely after recently selling my copy of victor salva's clownhouse on Amazon, and already I wonder if I made the right decision. In case anyone is wondering, clownhouse is the story of three brothers left alone overnight in an isolated house. Earlier in the evening the boys visit the circus and the younger brother...
