PRO: 
Launching Cate Gardner’s Nowhere Hall, the third in Spectral Press’ quarterly chapbook line…
CON: Hellraiser Revelations? What shite doth this be before mine eyes? Hang, draw and quarter them, the scurvy knaves!

 

 

 

BC Furtney
(Horror of Babylon Columnist)
PRO: Finding that running your own bookshop is pretty damn fun.
CON: Figuring out how to nix the pack of lazy bastards who worked there before I took the reins and introduced fresh blood.

PRO: 
The return of Doctor Who. More imagination in one episode than most of the beebs output combined.
CON: 
Kick Ass 2 – Just seems like Millar is more intent on being outrageous than telling a good story.

 

 

 

Dan Howarth
(Reviews)
PRO: 
Troll Hunter. Scandinavian horror just keeps giving and giving – mythology and hilarity – my favourite film of the summer.
CON: Apollo 18 – the most disappointing found footage since Kim Kardashian’s sex tape. One of the most derivative horror films ever.

 

 

 

Shaun Hutson
(The Gorefather)
PRO: 
Watching X-The Unknown (a 1956 black and white Hammer Film) on DVD and realising once again Hammer’s contribution to horror.
CON: Seeing the trailer for Shark Night 3-D at the pictures and wondering where the fuck all the class in horror movies went.

Final Destination 5 – wasn’t it ‘The Final Destination’ three movies ago???

Read Nowhere Hall last week. Loved it. Wanted to watch Trollhunter over the weekend, but the DVD was scratched to sh-t. As for Hell House: By God YES.
