Filthy Review - 'Trap for Cinderella'

Trap for Cinderella (2013)

Review by Jude Felton

As far as quantity of output goes, director Iain Softley is not exactly prolific. He’s not quite in the same league as Terrence Mallick’s snail-like pace, up until recent years, but since his cracking debut, Backbeat, in 1994 you can count the number of films he’s directed on both hands. This year, however, he’s back with a sly little thriller that is truly quite engaging.

Currently in production is the new horror film, Strange Blood, which is directed by Chad Michael Ward. Produced by Pearry Teo and Rosie Zwaduk, the film is about a scientist who gets infected with a parasite, whilst developing a cure for all disease. All going well, the film should see release at the end of 2014. In the meantime, you can check out the teaser trailer below!

Filthy Music Review - 'Patrons of the Rotting Gate: The Rose Coil'

Patrons of the Rotting Gate - The Rose Coil (2013)

The Path Less Traveled Records 

Review by Trevor Proctor

Patrons of the Rotting Gate is basically a one musician band, namely Andrew “Manshrew” Millar who’s originally from the city of Belfast but now resides in London – Adam “Arc” Irwin assists with additional guitar work but pretty much everything is the creation of the extremely talented Millar.

Filthy Music Review - 'Scorned Deity: Adventum'

Scorned Deity – Adventum (2013)

Review by Jude Felton

Prepare to be swept up into a tornado of symphonic blackened death metal, as Detroit’s Scorned Deity lay forth Adventum for all to marvel at. For what we have here is an exercise in the grandiose and epic, with more than enough savagery to satiate the most bloodthirsty.

The Lord of Filth's Top 10 Films of 2013

So another year slowly draws to a close, and I've actually not seen all that many films that I truly loved (aside from the list below). There were one or two that didn't quite make it, such as A Field in England, Junkie, This is the End and New World, that were also fantastic, but on the whole this wasn't as hard to compile as previous years. That being said I will admit to having watched far less new movies than in previous years, with a lot of older titles being re-issued and re-released. The below Top 10 (of which I have cheated on by including 11 films) though are my personal favorites of the year, and as in previous years I do not state it to be a "best of" list; this is just what floated my proverbial boat. I've also included the format on which I watched them. Enjoy.
