A good friend of mine, cineaste and film maker, DW Mault just pointed me in the direction of this little gem – Fear Itself. Charlie Lyne has created an outstanding documentary which explores every aspect of the horror genre. An outstanding monologue, carefully narrated byAmy E Watson, carries the viewer through a history of horror along with a very well sourced collection of clips which all flow seamlessly. I loved it. I really need to watch this again on a much bigger screen. Check it out here, free on iPlayer.
This is the kinda ‘found footage’ horror story that really gets the blood pumping. George Romero has found the the holy grail of the genre! A 16mm work print of his 68 masterpiece, Night of the Living Dead, including a 9 min. scene previously unreleased.
The scene also includes, apparently, the largest zombie scene in the entire film. Just how do these things go missing??!! The discovery was made whilst George was rummaging through his personal collection, for additional material for Martin Scorsese with an eye on remastering for a fresh release for what i’d suspect would be the 50th anniversary edition.
I don’t need to mention how amazing this is gonna be, but expect an ultimate release, theatrical, directors, extended and a whole host of extras. Take my money now George!

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES. We’ve been waiting for this for some time. Jane Austen’s celebrated Zombie romance. Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy take on the zombie menace with full on martial arts and weaponry, in this blood soaked masterpiece and discover their true love for one another. I really don’t remember this version when studying in school.
PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES will be released by Lionsgate UK in cinemas across the UK & Ireland on Friday 12th February 2016.
“A nuanced lead performance that should, by all rights, make Morgan Benoit a star.”
“Morgan Benoit is a name to watch out for.”
