A review from Kim Newman

I’ve been a fan of Kim Newman’s writing for a long time.. His book Nightmare Movies was one of the first overviews of the horror genre that I ever purchased, and I read it cover to cover more times than I can imagine.

A couple of years back, Kim Newman reviewed my first movie TrashHouse in this straight-to-DVD column for Empire. It was a brief but positive review, and felt like a real milestone.

Yesterday, we had a lengthy review, from Kim Newman himself, turn up for The Devil’s Music. It’s a really positive review, and scheduled to run in Empire as soon as we’ve got a UK release date. I obviously can’t reproduce the whole review here, but he’s kindly allowed us to run a quote from it over on the main site’s page for The Devil’s Music. It’s over here.


Found out that KillerKiller was released in Argentina last month too. Had no idea whatsoever. The title has been changed to the rather funky if slightly unoriginal…

Can’t work out how to use the Argentinian order sites yet (they don’t seem to have an Amazon) so haven’t successfully ordered it to add to my ‘international copies of my movies’ collection yet. Anyone feels like pointing me in the right direction I’d be extremely grateful.

I’ve also been working on a project that hasn’t been announced properly, so I’m never sure how much I’m meant to say about it. I’m sure I’ll just blurt it out myself before too long; I’ve never been too good with secrets. Except The Devil’s Music, which I was very proud of myself for how long I kept it to myself.

Oh, and there are apparently more midnight screenings of KillerKiller in certain UCI cinemas in Germany this coming weekend, so keep an eye out if you’re in the country.

I’m sure I’ll get round to doing a proper detailed blog again soon. But I’m sure you love these little updates in the meantime!

German Cinema Release

KillerKiller somewhat unexpectedly hit German cinemas for midnight showing across the country at selected UCI theatres last weekend, which we were delighted about.

Oh, and the second part of the Micro Budget guide on Zone Horror is over here.
