The Riddler just can’t help himself. Intent on showing off his intellectual superiority, he leaves riddles behind that once decoded, spell out the details of his criminal schemes.
One of the greatest things about being a fan of a cult classic television show, is meeting people that share your interest.
Recently I had the pleasure of meeting Keith Mayo, a twelve year drill sergeant in the United States Marine Corps, retired maximum security correctional officer, and all around stand up guy.
“My collection is small compared to most folks, but that’s because of its narrow focus. I only collect items tied directly to the [Batman] TV show and then only those that depict Adam West and Burt Ward.”
Shortly after Mad Max: Fury Road was released to theaters, an edited version of the original theatrical trailer was uploaded online, stylistically changing the tone of Fury Road to something one would expect to see at the grindhouse.
Since then The Playback Collective have created three more trailers in a similar vein; designed to take you back a few decades into the past.
“Maybe it was those torn cheesy covers of old VHS horror films that were prohibited by mom and dad. It was something about those years, those years that had to be played back.”
The debut issue of Lords of the Cosmos floored fans of science fiction with an incredible homage to the cartoons and toys of the 1980s. Creator Jason Lenox, and UGLI Studios have been hard at work on Lords of the Cosmos #2 which is bigger, badder, and now currently on Kickstarter.
“Lords of the Cosmos is the tale of the exotic planet Aiden, a planet lost to space and time.”
If you’re the kind of person who always wants the air conditioning colder, you will enjoy hanging out with the charismatic Batman villain Mr. Freeze!
This criminal mastermind requires sub-zero temperatures to survive as a result of a gruesome industrial accident, for which he blames Batman.
“I wonder if Batman will welcome the air conditioning… Wild!”
The Green Inferno is the horror director’s homage to the Italian cannibal films of the 1970s and 1980s. Those films, such as Cannibal Holocaust, Make Them Die Slowly and Eaten Alive were in turn influenced by the sub-genre of Mondo films. These films showed actual executions, animal slaughter and other graphic scenes of barbarity. While these movies portrayed indigenous and primitive peoples in an unflattering light, the invading Western protagonists also committed unspeakable acts of violence, leading the audience to wonder who the real savages were.
“No good deed goes unpunished.”
The Plastic Fang collection is a place within Fright-Rags that allows their team to create t-shirts that do not fit the horror genre specifically. When was the last time you saw a really cool, original shirt for Little Monsters, The Wizard or The Running Man?
“We take the shit, we smash the shit, and then we put the shit back.”
From the world of BBC TV’s Doctor Who, Koch Media presents The Doctors: Monsters! on 2-disc DVD on the 5th March.
This unique compilation includes the documentary special, ‘I Was a Doctor Who Monster!’, hosted by the Seventh Doctor, Sylvester McCoy, and five in-depth interviews from Reeltime Pictures acclaimed Myth Makers; featuring the the men and women that brought to life the monsters that sent Doctor Who fans hiding behind the sofa!
“I was a Doctor Who monster!”
Continuing from our previous interview, Attack from Planet B talked with Liam O’Donnell about his previous projects for Hydraulx VFX, and the various influences that have helped shape him as a filmmaker, and his well-received follow-up to Skyline; the aptly titled Beyond Skyline.
“You can’t really get away from Aliens when you are making a movie like this… There is a lot of the hive/powerplant sequence vibe with the eggs, the methylcellulose slime, and the latex webbing.”
After co-writing and producing Skyline in 2010, Liam O’Donnell spent the better half a decade working on his directional debut; the well-received follow-up, Beyond Skyline. Attack from Planet B talked with Liam about his experience on both movies, and the challenges associated with making a hybrid genre film.
“In the first cut that I showed the producers, during the end fight scene – the martial art scene – they were like, this is just alien knife porn!”
Released in 2017, seven years after it’s predecessor Skyline, the aptly titled Beyond Skyline sees Liam O’Donnell take over the directorial reigns from Greg and Colin Strause, in his directional debut.
Beyond Skyline was unwarranted. It is a sequel no one expected, and perhaps, a sequel no one wanted. Even as someone that appreciated the first movie, Beyond Skyline went beyond (pun intended) my expectations entirely. It works because it is so wild…so out there… Beyond Skyline is an experience.
“Survive? We did a hell of a lot more than survive… We evolved.”
