'Dead Mine' assures us that some things are best left buried - UK DVD details

I'll admit that this is a new title to me, but the blurb across the top of the DVD artwork should be enough to get you interested; 'from the director of Mum and Dad'. If you have seen that flick then you'll know that director Steven Sheil is a talent to look out for. It may not have been a wholly original flick, but it was very well done. Dead Mine is his new film, and eOne will be releasing it on DVD, in the UK, on May 13th. Judging from the trailer it looks like we are getting a cross between The Descent and Outpost, with a big old Samurai dude thrown in for good measure. Looks like fun! Trailer, stills and more details below.

Foresight Features prepare to take us to 'Hellmouth'

Foresight Features, who previously brought us Exit Humanity and Monster Brawl, are gearing up to unleash their next feature film, entitled Hellmouth. Directed by John Geddes and written by  Tony Burgess, Hellmouth stars Stephen McHattie in a 1950's style flick with McHattie playing a dying grave keeper who is forced to take one last job. I'll be posting more about this project as the news comes in. In the meantime you can read a little more about the film after the break.

Filthy Music Review - 'Runes of the Evening: Runes of the Evening'

Runes of the Evening – Runes of the Evening (2013)


Review by Jude Felton

Before listening to this self-titled album I will admit to not knowing an awful lot about Runes of the Evening. To tell the truth, I don’t know a hell of a lot about them after listening to it. What I do know though, is that they are from Dallas, TX, have previously released two EP’s and they absolutely destroy.

Filthy Review - 'Errors of the Human Body'

Errors of the Human Body (2012)

Review by Jude Felton

Some movies have a tendency to pass by undetected by the film-going public, whereas some you just can’t avoid reading or hearing about. Alas, I feel Eron Sheean’s Errors of the Human Body may fall into the former category and by no fault of its own as it is a thoroughly engrossing thriller.

Lair of the Minotaur – Godslayer EP (2013)

The Grind-House

Review by Jude Felton

The advice that came my way before listening to this EP was to “grab a helmet”. At first I thought maybe I was going on a bike ride, or maybe a little mountaineering. Then again, maybe it was because I was about to get beaten around the head. Ah yes, it would be the latter of course.

Ulfarr / Hrafnblóð – Wulfhere (2013)

UKEM Records

Review by Jude Felton

Abandon hope all ye who enter here. This phrase sums up perfectly this split album released by UKEM Records, as it not only takes you down to hell, but also invites you to stay awhile. To say that this is cold and bleak would be to sell it short, so maybe a trip to hell would be the perfect tonic.
