The London Korean Film Festival (LKFF) has launched its full programme of films and events for the upcoming 14th edition, taking place from 1st-14th November in London before embarking on the annual tour 18th-24th November.
CMC Pictures in association with Trinity / Cine Asia is proud to release the Chinese animated box office hit, Ne Zha, in IMAX 3D from 30th August and UK & ROI cinemas from 6th September 2019.
The director Jiao Zi spent two years refining the story. Along with its great script, Ne Zha’s incredible special effects and computer-generated visuals took over 20 animation studios, 1600 animators in China and years in the making.
“I Am the Destiny.”
Available from Super 7 is the new Toxic Crusaders Keshi Trash Can! This translucent green trash can features Toxie’s face molded on the lid and contains a full set of twelve 1.75-inch Keshi figures.
“It’s clean-up time!”
Netflix have done a brilliant job at exploring the Castlevania story with this season, which is twice the length of the first and has a lot more Dracula. For anyone who didn’t see the first season there’s only two things you need to know: First- Dracula has declared war on the human race after the Church killed his wife. Second- Trevor Belmont (the last descendant of the famous monster fighting family) and Sypha Belnades (a witch) have joined forces with Alucard (Dracula’s son) to defeat the vampire lord himself.
“In killing my wife, humanity has proven to me that they don’t deserve the Earth… We will scour them off the land!”
Inspired by the 1970’s Shogun Warriors toy line licensed by Mattel Inc., Super7 have released their 3.75-inch Shogun ReAction Figures! Super7 have also released Shogun 1.75″ M.U.S.C.L.E. 3-Packs (featuring 12 different figures)!
“I, Kouji, am your pilot Mazinger Z, and you do as I say, and I said stop!”
I heard of this anime film years ago but heard such bad things it put me off, then last week I found a good review on it that mentioned the plot and I thought I’d give it a go. Firstly like many other reviewers I must admit this is probably the craziest Dracula plot ever. It’s based of Tomb of Dracula issues 40-75 and as such there’s a lot going on…
Overall this film is very true to the comic and has a good storyline but it’s too rushed. The visuals in part are faithful to the comic but frequently seem low budget. If you liked Tomb of Dracula I’d definitely recommend this. If you’re looking for a different Dracula film you should enjoy it.
“Darling, I want to tell you about the man I used to be before I became the cursed slave of Satan.”
Tank Girl’s protagonist is a sexually-liberated, confident, independent woman who, quite literally, spits in the face of her oppressors. Kesslee doesn’t want to beat Tank Girl, he wants her to join him. But she refuses to be co-opted by the mainstream. It’s the fault of riot grrrl, of course. There’s a bold, alternative spirit to Tank Girl, thanks in no small part to its soundtrack.
“In 2033, justice rides a tank and wears lip gloss.”
The Dead of Night Film Festival took place at The Atkinson, Southport, UK between 20th-21st October 2017. Overall this was a brilliant festival with two films – Sequence Break and The Corpse Series – which I would put in the top 10 films I’ve saw this year. I’d definitely go again next year.
“Made for horror fans by horror fans.”
Grimmfest, screening the best in fantastic film, took place at Vue Printworks, Manchester, UK between 5th-8th October 2017. Overall this was a brilliant event where I enjoyed all but one film and even that was only a short, so it wasn’t too bad.
“Grimm up North.”
Waxwork Records is thrilled to present the deluxe soundtrack re-press of George A. Romero and Stephen King’s seminal 1982 horror-anthology classic, Creepshow; along with six large vibrant and detailed 1.75″ Creepshow enamel pins; designed by Ghoulish Gary Pullin.
“Where’s… my… cake? I… want… my… cake!”
Waxwork Records have worked directly with composers Les Reed and Rick Wakeman to acquire the original source material (after a lengthy search for the original masters) and re-master for vinyl. This stunning deluxe, double LP soundtrack release marks the very first time that the music from Creepshow 2 has been released in any format.
“Good to the last gasp!”
Animated by Hideaki Anno, Metal Skin Panic MADOX-01’s plot centers on Koji, an engineering student who accidentally discovers the Madox-01; a heavy mechanised, armoured exoskeleton. This military weapon, successor to the Madox-00, is equipped with a large array of weaponry and was designed to fight against heavy armoured vehicles. Glancing through the conveniently included instruction manual, Koji climbs into the Madox-01 exoskeleton.
