In Review: Video Nasties: Draconian Days

by Neil Mitchell 27 June 2014

In one way or another, ‘Video Nasties’ have been a part of my life for 30 years. Initially, the lurid VHS covers displayed in my local video shop, advertising the likes of Cannibal Holocaust and The Evil Dead, were catnip for a boy on the cusp of adolescence.

In Review: The Art of the Steal

by Daniel Goodwin 20 June 2014

Kurt Russell has been away from cinemas since Death Proof (2007) but what better a role to see him return than as an art thieving motorcycle daredevil.
