With the third and final blood-splattered season, Ash vs Evil Dead has closed the book of the dead on Ash Williams and his fight against the deadites! While it’s sad to see the show come to an end, The Evil Dead lives on with Fright-Rags’ Ash vs Evil Dead collection.
Fright-Rags have also released a Creepshow 2 collection featuring five t-shirts and four enamel pins, and a Killer Klowns from Outer Space collection featuring four t-shirts and three ringer tees in custom colors.
“You know you could, uh, take off your gun… Put it over there with your chainsaw limb.”

“No one is safe.”
With the release of Avengers: Infinity War and a packed year of comic book films to come, mainly adapted from Marvel, it’s important to note it’s not just the big two [including DC Comics] that release comic book film adaptions.
“You know the difference between you and me? I make this look good.”
It’s becoming easy to recognise a film by Edgar Wright – there are trademark aspects: a sense of wit, sharp editing, and a rousing soundtrack. Baby Driver, Wright’s first-ever solo screenplay, offers a premise that is a cinematic convention, but told in a wholly energising and original way. The action-movie potential of the virtuoso driver is hardly a new concept. It’s a proposition that has had its twists and turns, from Walter Hill’s The Driver, The French Connection, Bullitt and Ronin right through to Ryan Gosling’s nameless specialist in Refn’s Drive.
“All you need is one killer track.”
It’s a while since we’ve seen a cinematic anthology of horror tales, but Ghost Stories revives that tradition with a trio of supernatural stories in the style of English portmanteau movies of the 1960s and the Ealing classic Dead of Night. The film’s writer-directors Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson have adapted Ghost Stories from their successful stage show. (Nyman is an actor, writer and magician who has devised productions for Derren Brown; Jeremy Dyson is actor, writer and co-creator of The League of Gentlemen) Their film offers a tribute to an array of old-school horror tropes.
“We have to be very careful what we choose to believe.”

“Christ with me. Christ before me. Christ behind me. Christ in me.”

“Did you remember to lock your door?”
In You Were Never Really Here, Lynne Ramsay explores the themes of abuse, violence, trauma and the corruption inherent in the powerful elite. She has re-fashioned the narrative and plot without diminishing its brutal impact, and elevated what might have been a conventional revenge flick by sheer filmmaking skill. The action of the film accelerates and ultimately concludes without necessarily developing in the conventional way. In You Were Never Really Here, Ramsay has managed to translate her singular vision into a complex, but compelling, feature film.
“I want you to hurt them.”
Last year Waxwork Comics released their debut comic book series, House of Waxwork; a rousing horror-anthology series packed with macabre tales of ghouls, ghosts, witchcraft, the occult, the living dead, and revenge! Now Waxwork Comics has released the highly anticipated second issue…
“Don’t feed these books and records after midnight.”
Waxwork Records proudly presents the debut film score release of Queen of Earth. Written and directed by Alex Ross Perry, and starring Elisabeth Moss and Katherine Waterston, 2015’s Queen of Earth is an American psychological thriller. Scored by composer Keegan DeWitt, the beautiful-nightmarish music of Queen of Earth captures an auditory mental breakdown.
“You fucking animal. You unrepentant piece of shit. You click your tongue and you revel in the affairs of others. You are worthless.”
“We love you more than anything in the world, but sometimes…” Mom and Dad is the new feature written and directed by Brian Taylor. It proves to be a kinetic, pitch-black horror-comedy – a gleefully wicked story propelled by some crazed characters.
The story develops at a ripping pace and director Taylor and the principal players appear to have a lot of fun with the disturbing premise and the savage lunacy. Despite their violent inclinations, we never really doubt that these parents still love their kids in some bizarrely distorted way.
