As the shocking news broke out across the grapevine a few days ago that the legendary Hammer actor Sir Christopher Lee has passed away, I just had to write a tribute post dedicated to his infamous work. Growing up I was introduced to horror at a very early age and for as long […]

Filth: Review

There was an atmosphere of tense uneasiness in the air as I sat down in the cinema with my companion.

The Quiet Ones – Review
