My Summer Vacation

My Summer Vacation: Acting and Adventure

(6)
October 18, 2013

The film I worked on this summer has now been made available for public viewing on Vimeo. It was filmed in July around Sidmouth, England with an intimate cast and crew. I worked with some brilliantly talented people and hopefully will work with them again. The experience was another life changer for me. I had… Read More ›

The Seasoning House

The Seasoning House (2012) Dramatic Directorial Debut

In the 2012 film, The Seasoning House, first time director Paul Hyett comes out of his corner swinging with this dramatic directorial debut. The film has been classed as horror, and in most viewers eye it is, but it is more of a tense drama, filled with enough suspense and unease to keep you uncomfortably… Read More ›

The Conjuring

The Conjuring (2013): James Wan Fine Tuning of the Genre

The Conjuring is James Wan working hard to fine tune his take on the horror genre. The man who brought us Saw (2004); Dead Silence (2007); and Insidious (2010) as a director is learning how to scare more effectively and not rely upon gore to make his audience swoon with terror. Insidious, for all its… Read More ›

Ravenous (1999) Food for Thought

The 1999 fim Ravenous stars Guy Pierce, Robert Carlyle and was directed, eventually, by Antonia Bird. It is a story of cannibalism, without the usual OTT shots of gore. It does have more than enough gore to satisfy the most vociferous “gore-hound” but it doesn’t meander into “Cannibal Holocaust” territory. The story focusses around Guy… Read More ›

81 ‘likes’ in 3 days?! :D Once Bitten, Twice Shy (again)

81 ‘likes’ in 3 days?! :D Once Bitten, Twice Shy (again).

Thank you all

A little Post about Once Bitten, Twice Shy “Thank You’s”

I am sure that I’ve been this tired and achy before in my life, it’s just been so long ago that I’ve obviously forgotten! I’m also that curious blend of satisfied and yet  really wanting to do it all again;  that part of me that will never be satisfied with a performance I’ve given. sure… Read More ›

Hansel & Gretel get CG

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters Grimms Gets CG

I watched this film with deep misgivings. I then realised that not only was I being unfair, I was, if nothing else, being hypocritical. I have always maintained that one should watch a film with no preset expectations. I had doomed Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters with an almost pathological distaste at the “high tech” weaponry… Read More ›

The Bay

The Bay Grown up Found Footage

After passing over this film on the Playstation store repeatedly, I finally watched the trailer and it caught my interest. I watched it and decided to “give it a go.” I’m glad I did. Although it uses the “found footage” formula that is quickly become a new genre of film, I agree with David Cox of The… Read More ›

Grave_Encounters_2_

Grave Encounters 2 Better the Second Time Around

I watched the previous Vicious Bros film, Grave Encounters (2011) which was also written and directed by the two men. I enjoyed the film, apart from a few annoying moments and when I reviewed it, I was pretty fair in my assessment. It was a good film, but nothing to write home about. It was… Read More ›

Night of the Templar

Night of theTemplar David Carradine In His Last Performance

Night of the Templar is a 2012 low budget (an estimated $3 million) British film and the best thing about it is David Carradine in his last performance. Officially this was his last film before being found dead aged 72 in Bangkok, Thailand  apparently a victim of auto-erotic asphyxiation. Written and directed by stuntman Paul Sampson, the… Read More ›
