The LA MUERTA: ASCENSION #1 Collection Available Now from Coffin Comics

It’s been eight months since the patron Saint of Death haunted Maria Diaz’ dreams—eight months since Maria donned the guise of the avenging vigilante La Muerta. But instead of finding happiness in a peaceful life, Maria has grown restless. A trained combat soldier, she needs a mission to give her purpose and distract her from the creeping shadows of her losses.

Enter the legendary crime-fighting luchador Loco. He plans to wipe meth from the face of the barrio and needs La Muerta’s help to do it. Together, they leave a pile of broken thugs and dealers in their bone-crunching wake…

An Interview with Director Michael Fausti, The Ingress Tapes, Dead Celebrities, EXIT (Part II: British Filmmaking, Brexit & Social Horror)

An Interview with Director Michael Fausti, The Ingress Tapes, Dead Celebrities, EXIT (Part II: British Filmmaking, Brexit & Social Horror)

Continuing from our previous interview, Attack from Planet B talked with Michael Fausti regarding his first feature film EXIT, and the various influences that have helped shape him as a filmmaker.

“The early stages of writing took place at the same time as the European Referendum, so inevitably this was always going to have an influence. Our original premise for a story set in a single, insular location, seemed the perfect starting point for a Brexit inspired horror film.”

Women of Mafia 2 (aka Mafia Women 2) (2019, Poland) Review

Women of Mafia 2 (aka Mafia Women 2) (2019, Poland) Review

Fans of writer-director Patryk Vega’s Mafia Women, rejoice! There’s a sequel to the film I called “unbelievably bad” in this very space, and it’s titled, appropriately, Women of Mafia 2 (or Mafia Women 2, depending on your Polish-to-English translation). You’ll be pleased to know that Women of Mafia 2 has quite a lot in common with the first film, including graphic violence, frontal nudity, and a script so nonsensical that the writing must have been outsourced to the proverbial primate with a typewriter, minus the infinite timeline.

Exit (2020, UK) Review

Exit (2020, UK) Review

The political landscape has evolved or, perhaps that should be mutated into a picture so grotesque that, ten years ago horror fans wouldn’t have been able to conjure up our present reality from even the darkest corners of their imagination. One of horror’s most powerful and moving attributes is that it is able to reflect what is occurring within society at any given moment. Along with a shift towards nationalism in the recent years, the notion of what scares us at the movies has gravitated away from slasher villains and horrifying monsters to a deep rooted fear of people…

A Good Woman Is Hard to Find (2019, UK / Belgium) Review

A Good Woman Is Hard to Find (2019, UK / Belgium) Review

Sarah is doing it tough. Having lost her husband to an as-yet-unsolved murder only a few short months prior, she is stretched both financially and emotionally. She has two small children to give her strength and motivation as she privately grieves and tries to hold her family together. But A Good Woman Is Hard to Find opens with her covered in blood. She washes it off in the shower and then we reflect back on how she got there; and what an exhilarating tale it is. Directed by Abner Pastoll and written by Ronan Blaney, this Northern Irish production has much to admire.

“They’re my children… I’m their mother… and I love them.”

Women of Mafia (aka Mafia Women) (2018, Poland) Review

While you don’t need to take a ball-peen hammer to the forehead to enjoy Patryk Vega’s film Mafia Women (aka Women of Mafia), it sure would help. The movie’s biggest failure is the unbelievably bad plot, which would be laughable if so much money hadn’t been spent trying to turn such a cinematic sow’s ear into the semblance of a silk purse. The only reason why certain characters survived the events of the film was because everyone around them made so many stupid, unintelligible decisions…
