    27th Jan 2023 by

    In Japan, a mysterious hooded figure has tracked down, and released the dark spirit that feeds on havoc and chaos. A spirit that is without a doubt, one of the toughest enemies the pack has ever gone up against. So who released it, and how will they stop it once again?

  • Little Dead Rotting Hood

    13th Jan 2023 by

    When a small town’s secret guardian of the forest takes her own life, the wolves of the forest attack!

    The local police force thinks they have it under control for a minute but they soon discover that there is more to these wolves than meets the eye. Furthermore, their world is flipped on its side when they discover a zombified teenager dressed in red, with sharp claws running through the forest rescuing folk from the wolves.

    Secrets are revealed, and the Sheriff is ready to take on the werewolves and their Den Mother before they can murder the entire town!

  • Werewolf by Night – TV Special (2022)

    13th Jan 2023 by

    Delving deeper into the darker side of Marvel, away from the heroes like Thor, Captain America and Iron-Man, we instead find ourselves attending a funeral for Ulysses Bloodstone.

    Attending his funeral, are various Hunters who have all come to pay their respects, but more importantly, to earn their rite to wield the legendary Blood Stone. Which grants hunters great strength and skill in battle.

    Also in attendance, is Ulysses’ own flesh and blood. His daughter, Elsa Bloodstone has come to claim her birthright but even she has no clue of the strangest stranger among them.

  • Wolf Manor

    12th Jan 2023 by

    Whilst filming on the set of a low-budget vampire movie in an abandoned manor, the cast and crew soon run into a rather gruesome situation after a run-in with a very real and very deadly werewolf!

    The only question is; Who is going to make it out of the manor alive?

  • Chainsaw Man – Episode 8

    30th Nov 2022 by

    There was a fair bit of controversy surrounding the ending of the previous episode. However, I am personally still enjoying the series and it’s characters. That being said, as we draw closer to the end of the first season, the story is getting more brutal.

  • Chainsaw Man – Episode 7

    23rd Nov 2022 by

    Remember in my review for episode one when I said that the gore would be a selling point for this series…well…I might have been wrong, in part at least, because this show really drives home one other element to the show and its characters that I will explain in this episode review without spoiling anything truly major.

  • Chainsaw Man – Episode 6

    22nd Nov 2022 by

    The gang of Devil Hunters find themselves trapped on the 8th floor. Each window and door leads to the rooms on the opposite side of the hallway and the stairs loop infinitely to the same spot. No chance of escape, no way to call for help, and almost all hope is lost.

  • Chainsaw Man – Episode 5

    16th Nov 2022 by

    This episode added more depth to some of the characters and set the tone for the seriousness of situations the group will be going up against in the coming episodes, but it doesn’t shy away from it’s usual humour, mostly focusing on acts of intimacy being used as motivation, but also there are the jokes surrounding the two devils of the group, Power and Denji, who act like a pair of troublesome kids, who get given gum as a bribe for being good and following orders as well as showing respect to Hayakawa. The fun doesn’t really stop in this show and that’s why I love it, so if it continues at this quality, it will be an incredible show all-round.

  • Death Note – Volume 2

    14th Nov 2022 by

    As the investigation into who Kira the criminal killer continues, Light has begun taking drastic but necessary measures to ensure he is not discovered. L is slowly putting the pieces of the puzzle together, but he’s not the only one. A fiance of a former FBI agent that was killed by Kira is closing in on the case, and is getting far too close for comfort for Light, who uses his wits and his charm to keep anyone from discovering that he is Kira.

  • Death Note – Volume 1

    11th Nov 2022 by

    Death Note is one of those anime you hear about and see a lot of when exploring the weeb wide web, and it is often praised as one of the best manga and anime by a large number of people. Despite this, I have yet to watch the anime, and I have never read the books, until now that is, so I am going into this story with no knowledge of what could happen or what should happen, making it an interesting reading journey to say the least.

  • Bleach – Volume 1

    7th Nov 2022 by

    Ichigo Kurasaki is a 15 year old boy who has always had the ability to see ghosts, but the veil between life and death expands far beyond what he originally could have imagined, but he soon learns the truth when he meets a soul reaper, a being from the soul society that cannot be seen by regular humans, and whose job it is to reap and cleanse the souls of the deceased.

  • Chainsaw Man – Episode 4

    2nd Nov 2022 by

    It seems with each new episode of this anime, I find it more and more entertaining. This weeks episode was certainly entertaining to say the least, but it also gave us more expansion to the world of Chainsaw Man, so here is my latest review to explain more.

  • Chainsaw Man – Episode 3

    26th Oct 2022 by

    After interferring with a devil hunt being carried out by civilian hunters, Power and her partner Denji are in trouble with their superiors. They both seem to be struggling with the concept of teamwork but when Power offers Denji and opportunity with a rewards befitting that which he seeks so desperately, Denji is convinced to work with Power on a personal mission, but not everything is as it appears.

  • Chainsaw Man – Episode 2

    21st Oct 2022 by

    So after that first episode I’ve started reading the Chainsaw Man manga alongside watching the new episodes as they release. So I can make a few comparisons between the two in my reviews.

  • Chainsaw Man – Episode 1

    19th Oct 2022 by

    For me, anime can be hard to get into, because there are so many choices, and a lot of those choices have so much backlog to get through at this point that it can be hard to stick to it and pull through each episode to get to the best bits that you’ve seen and heard so much about.

    Luckily, I have found a few stories that are only just getting anime adaptations such as Demon Slayer and more recently, Chainsaw Man! So, here is my review for the first episode of this brand new anime.

  • My Top Picks for a Scooby-Doo Halloween Movie Marathon!

    19th Oct 2022 by

    When it comes to family friendly monster hunts and spooky mysteries, only one name comes to mind this halloween season, and that name is Scooby-Doo! With the latest release in the Scooby-Doo franchise, Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo!, I decided that I could create a list of the best Scooby-Doo animated features to watch around Halloween to get you and the family in the mood this spooky season.

  • Nottingham #7

    6th Mar 2022 by

    In the company of unlikely allies, The Sheriff makes his way to Rome on a ship. Whilst out at sea, he and Robin Hood have a discussion about their aligning goals and what that means for their current relationship, or rather, acquaintanceship.

  • Nottingham #6

    9th Feb 2022 by

    Nottingham is an intricate story with a lot of depth to it. It may appear to be just another Robin Hood story but there’s definitely something truly spectacular unfolding throughout each issue and I cannot wait to see where the story goes. Secrecy, betrayal, and blood, all combined to make a Robin Hood story unlike any other!

  • Nottingham Vol.1: Death and Taxes – TPB

    8th Feb 2022 by

    I was late to the party with this one, but my gosh what a party it is. This has got to be one of the best re-imaginings of a story that I have read. Just when you think you’ve seen all you can see from a Robin Hood story, the team over at Mad Cave comes along and delivers this incredibly well-designed, action-packed adventure that really makes you question who the hero of the story really is.

  • Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase

    5th Feb 2022 by

    When trying to help look for clues as to who and what exactly caused all of the trouble in the college, Scooby and the gang are zapped into Eric’s game, but there seems to be only one way out for them. They must complete the game and defeat the Phantom Virus to earn their freedom back into the real world.

  • Scooby-Doo! in Arabian Nights – DVD Review

    5th Feb 2022 by

    Join a cast of Hanna-Barbera favourites, including Yogi Bear and Boo Boo Bear, as well as Magilla Gorilla and of course, Scooby and Shaggy, in this cartoon re-telling of two stories from Arabian Nights. Albeit a simplified, and a rather silly version for the kids.

  • Scooby-Doo Meets the Boo Brothers – DVD Review

    4th Feb 2022 by

    Shaggy receives a letter, telling him that his uncle Beaureguard has passed away, and in his will, he has left Shaggy the rights to the old Beaureguard Plantation, and the treasure hidden within. However, upon arriving at the creepy-looking property, the trio is chased by various kooky characters such as a headless horseman, a gorilla, and the ghost of Uncle Beaureguard himself.

  • Scooby-Doo! and the Reluctant Werewolf – DVD Review

    30th Jan 2022 by

    Shaggy, Scooby, and Scrappy are race car champions in America, but winning a race seems to be the least of their troubles, because, across the map in spooky Transylvania, the Wolf Man has decided to retire, leaving Dracula and the other monsters one driver short for their race.

  • Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School – DVD Review

    29th Jan 2022 by

    Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School is, as always, an enjoyable adventure that feels very strange compared to the rest of the animated films released after the ’80s. This is simply because of the absence of the rest of the Mystery Inc. gang, Velma, Daphne, and Fred, as well as the lack of Mystery Machine rolling about. It is also, yet again, another Scooby-Doo animated film that doesn’t feature the classic unmasking of any monsters, but instead plays on the idea that all of these monsters are very real.

  • Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island – DVD Review

    28th Jan 2022 by

    Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island’s dark aesthetic makes it one of the best movies to ever be released among the franchise, as it escaped the usual stereotypical tropes we see from the rest of the films, whilst still remaining true to the source material, because at it’s heart it is still very much a classic Scooby-Doo tale

  • Real Hero Shit

    27th Jan 2022 by

    Unapologetically awesome, holds nothing back, and the adult content takes nothing away from the pacing, or story, if anything, it simply adds to the overall enjoyable experience. It reminds me of the Dragon Age video game series, so if you’re a fan of those, and games like them, then this is a book for you!

  • Call of the Jersey Devil

    21st Jan 2022 by

    The gates of Hell have been opened and all manner of creepy ghoulish creatures have come pouring out of the abyss. All of these creatures are terrifying of course but none of them are quite so terrifying as the infamous Jersey Devil. A beast with hairy, hooved legs, a muscular but spindly body made of flesh, large multiple horns of varying sizes, a dragon-like tail, and large leathery wings like a bat, with black demonic eyes and razor-sharp teeth. Quite literally the stuff of nightmares, and it roams within the Pine Barrens of New Jersey, USA, preying on unwary victims.

  • Big Alien Moon Crush

    20th Jan 2022 by

  • Moon Knight #1 (1980)

    18th Jan 2022 by

    Ahead of the new Disney Plus series for Marvel’s Moon Knight, I decided to do a bit more research into some of the classic comics that started it all. Besides his appearance in Werewolf by Night #32, I have not read much of the character or his origins. So I wanted to learn more before the series comes out, and what better place to start, than with issue 1 from 1980? His first solo run.

    Intro: Heroes across all comics eventually deal with something a little more supernatural than your average villain.
