Filthy Review - 'Meeting Evil'

Meeting Evil (2012)

Review by Jude Felton

There is something about Samuel L. Jackson’s eyes; they give off that look of a man not to be messed with. I’m sure he is a delightful person is real life, but so many off the characters he plays just tell you he is a bad-ass. So, if he comes knocking at your door out of the blue, you might be forgiven for thinking something bad is coming your way. Such is the case for John (Luke Wilson) in the thriller Meeting Evil.

'Resident Evil: Damnation' coming to Blu-ray and DVD

September 25th will see the release to Blu-ray and DVD (with Ultra-violet) of Resident Evil: Damnation, from Sony. The film is the sequel to 2008's Resident Evil: Degeneration. Personally,  I enjoyed Degeneration far more than the Milla Jovavich flicks, with the film being a direct continuation of the games that inspired it. I'll be checking this out as soon as possible.

Interview with UK Film Producer Jonathan Sothcott

I recently had the chance to ask UK film producer Jonathan Sothcott a few questions, about his movies, Mark Hamill, the UK film industry and more. Jonathan, along with his company Chatta Films, have recently brought such films as Airborne, The Rise and Fall of a White Collar Hooligan, Elfie Hopkins and Strippers vs Werewolves to our screens. And from the looks of things, there is no chance of him slowing down anytime soon!
