Forming a resistance, skyline survivors fought off the alien invasion; re-engineering the ‘Pilots’ biology so their humanity could be restored. Now the ravaged Earth’s survival depends on the peaceful coexistence of the human race and extraterrestrial ticking time-bombs…

YOU CANNOT KILL DAVID ARQUETTE in Cinemas (19 November) & Digital Download (23 November) from Blue Finch Film Releasing

David Arquette steps into the ring for a shockingly outrageous and wildly entertaining story of redemption, as the Hollywood actor makes a stunning return to professional wrestling. David Arquette entered the World Championship Wrestling (WCW) ring in 2000 to promote a movie… and left it as ‘the most hated man in wrestling’, after controversially winning the World Heavyweight Championship belt. Now, the actor is dangerously determined to redeem his reputation and reclaim his self-respect in the eyes of his wrestling heroes and the fans who consider him a joke.

“I’m just kind of sick of being a joke.”

Shirley (2020, USA) BFI London Film Festival 2020 Review

Shirley (2020, USA) London Film Festival 2020 Review

For some people, confronting a house full of ghosts might seem a more benign situation than braving a pack of judgemental housewives, especially in the 1950s, an era haunted by impossible standards for women. Finding herself amongst the snooty wives of academics, Shirley Jackson must often have been the target of their gossip and probably preferred to imagine herself trapped in ‘Hill House’. Jackson reputedly cultivated an interesting, if fearsome, persona – prickly, idiosyncratic, unkempt, contemptuous. She was tolerated in academic circles, being a successful author in her own right.

“Let’s pray for a boy. The world is too cruel to girls.”

Cannibal XXX #1 (2020, UK) Review

Artist/writer/creator Paul PJ Johnson has been a consistent and prominent figure on the UK independent comics scene for the past 7-8 years. Being well known for his character Razor Bastard is only half the story, as Johnson’s versatile imagination and unique artistic style has seen him also release some absolute gems, such as the epic graphic novel Death Truck and the amazing Once Monster. Now he’s back, with what may be his most raunchy, most graphic, and most violent creation: Cannibal XXX.

“Yeah, what’s the worst? You drop your toast, butter side down? … Oh yeah, being eaten alive by fucking cannibals!”

Teething (2020, Canada) Review

A dog’s bark pierces the silence of the night as a man emerges from a car into the shadows wearing a Michel Myers style jumpsuit. We are only a few seconds in and already there is an atmosphere of intrigue and dread. The man is John, a janitor who has arrived to work a shift at an orphanage where strange occurrences are afoot. In an office turned nursing room, a woman holds a baby closely as vintage music pipes its way out of an old radio, adding to the overall sense of foreboding.

“I swear to god, I wanted to throw her right down the stairs earlier. It’s awful, I know. She’s teething…”
