'Injustice For All' Fan Project Pleases Those Left Underwhelmed by 'Suicide Squad'

With DC Comic's latest anti-superhero mash-up 'Suicide Squad' already disappointing plenty of fans and critics alike recently it comes as no surprise that many are already moving their focus forward to the line-up of next phase efforts such as the forthcoming 'Justice League' movie. However, between now and then we can embrace other more underground efforts like this awesome re-imagined origin story from a group of renegade filmmakers working under the Hollywood radar. 'Injustice For All' is a 20-minute short based around the origins of the Joker told by Harleen Quinzel (AKA Harley Quinn) and is a must-see for all fanboys and those left feeling a little short-changed by the recent DC Comic blockbuster.

Posted: 1 August, 2016 at 17:24 PM GMT
Corruptive Challenges: Selling Your Morals for Money

Later this month will see the release of 'Catfish' creators Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman’s latest thriller ‘Nerve’. Emma Roberts and Dave Franco star as a couple of real-world players who immerse themselves into a new online social-based game where they play for increasing amounts of money participating in escalating dares given to them by the “watching” public. Of course in the realm of thrillers and horror this isn’t the first time that such a concept has been put on film so we thought we’d revisit a few of our favourite movies that feature plenty of escalating challenges. Challenges and dares that will certainly leave you thinking about which of your morals and ethics can be bought for the right price.

The Crazed Ladies of Horror

With Father’s Day right around the corner you think it would give us a good chance to revisit some of the classic moments in horror where “daddy issues” have had some heavy influence on some of the major and most terrifying goings-on in horror movie history. However we thought we’d go the other way. Let’s face it boys there’s usually one thing that makes us all go a little mad sometimes and that’s the women in our lives. Vengeful mothers, twisted girlfriends and completely unpredictable females make up our list where sisters really are doing it for themselves.

THE MODERN MASTER OF HORROR: THE RISE OF JAMES WAN
 
Posted: 13 May, 2016 at 01:32 AM GMT
The Modern Master Of Horror: The Rise Of James Wan

A Malaysian-born, Australian film director, James Wan is most known for his impact on the horror genre since debuting his short film Saw in 2003. Honing his unique style from a young age, the director won Best Guerilla Film at the Melbourne Underground Film Festival for his first film Stygian, before breaking fresh ground with the gore-filled Saw. Wan then became known as the dominating force in quality horror films with the likes of critically-acclaimed and box office hits Insidious and The Conjuring – the latter of which remains the highest grossing original horror movie of all time, second only to The Exorcist.

HOW WE ARE CHANGING FROM THE TRADITIONAL HORROR MOVIE
 
Posted: 5 May, 2016 at 21:12 PM GMT
How We Are Changing from the Traditional Horror Movie

I’m sure we have all watched horror movies, whether that is hiding behind the sofa in fear as you can’t bear to watch the gruesome events in front of you, or if you’re brave enough with popcorn and managing to sit through it all without flinching. Either way, we know the usual sequence of horror movies, we have a villain, we have deaths, and we have fear in the audience. We also have a usual setting for this, at night predominantly, with a lonely victim, in a creaky old house that would spook out anyone, with music slowly beating to ramp up the tension and make you more scared than you ever thought humanly possible.

Murderers, weirdos, sinister bellhops (like the creepy costumed bloody bellhop you can now pick up at Pure Costumes), perverse managers, ghosts and general strange goings-on are the order of the day in most of our specially selected list of horror/thriller hotels and motels here.

The Top 3 Monster Slot Machines You Need to Try

Monsters! Even if they are hiding in a human form, you instantly recognize them on the screen. If not by their empty gaze, or even a criminally insane one, at least because the heroine of the flick starts screaming when they appear. Monsters have been a part of our lives since the early days of humanity - just think of the Egyptian gods with animal heads, or the various scaries of the Greek and Roman mythology. And they served as an inspiration for many novels, short stories, movies and  - why not? - slot machines over the years. And now I'll show you the three best slot machine monsters I've come across.
