How can you have lived for so long and still not get it? This self obsession is a waste of living.
Only Lovers Left Alive is getting a special digital edition re-release courtesy of We Are Colony on Friday. The film passed passed this reviewer by on its initial release so to mark its release o I thought I would give it a spin.
I love vampires, and I love vampire movies, but over the years vampire movies have, sadly, devolved into repetitive exercises in the lowest common denominator let's make a vampire film. Filled with bad acting, no understanding of makes a great vampire movie, or worse still turning the Princes and Princesses of the night into some teenage object of obsession. You can probably count on one hand the number of vampire films in recent years that have any sort of merit.
Which makes the fact, that a director not typically associated with horror, can produce a film that perfectly captures the essence of a great vampire film so perfectly just a little bit galling.
The original William Friedkin film has ripped the aorta of the shrivelled heart of horror. It has been copied countless times on-screen and in print, as well as enduring multiple parodies of the now legendary spider-walk, head rotation and of course the pea-soup-projectile-vomiting. It is as much part of the fabric of horror as Frankenstein’s Monster, and as easily recognisable.
Channel Zero, the latest horror TV show from the SyFy Channel has just launched, to mark the release of the new series, Ginger Nuts of Horror brings you not one, but two reviews of the opening episode.

Read one for our special two-part review of Channel Zero
After what seems life half a lifetime Reggie, Mike and Angus have finally made it through their battle through the dimensions and come home for their showdown. The battle weary combatants look a lot older and a lot more ragged, hair is going; wrinkles are showing, and their eyes look a little bit deader than they did when we last had the pleasure of being in their company. Which is rather sad as it is not just the cast that looks like they need to put their feet up. Sadly Phantasm Ravager looks like it too needs to put its feet up and have a long rest in the nearest retirement home.
