She-Wolf of London (1946) – Jean Yarbrough

June Lockhart stars in the next entry in DK Canada’s highly enjoyable Monsters in the Movies book as I continue working my way through the chapter on werewolves. That being said, there is a distinct lack of lycanthropy in this film, as it is only hinted at, but that’s okay, the film’s runtime, one hour,…

Underworld (2003) – Len Wiseman

Kate Beckinsale kicks ass and looks stunning doing it as she plays Selene, a death dealer, or vampire, in Underworld, the next recommendation from DK Canada’s highly enjoyable Monsters in the Movies by legendary director, John Landis. There has been a war raging around humanity for centuries as vampires and werewolves, or death dealers and…

Doctor Who (David Tennant) – New Earth and Tooth and Claw

The Doctor (Tennant) and Rose (Billie Piper) begin their adventures together, as they travel to New Earth. Written by Russell T. Davies, Rose started her travels with Ten on 15 April, 2006. Tennant owns the role right from the off. He’s fun, excitable, and clever. To show that the Doctor was still the same character,…

Tim’s Halloween Movies

It’s Halloween! Always a fun time of year, and while I could sit here and give you my favorite scary movies, I thought perhaps I would just list 10 films that I really enjoy, in no particular order, ones that are good for a spooky movie night. These are movies that are fun to watch, or you…

Toronto After Dark – Game of Werewolves – Juan Martinez Moreno

Somehow we’ve reached the end of this year’s Toronto After Dark Film Festival, it went QUICK! The film that closed out the event, and who’s trailer did not do it any justice at all was Game of Werewolves, a delightful little horror-comedy, though placing it after a Simon Pegg comedy may not have been the way to…

Where Have All The Good Scares Gone?

Is it possible that the horror genre has become so spotlit in the mainstream media, that it no longer has any shadows for scary things to hide in? Fear and scares are dependent on the individual, what freaks someone out won’t phase the next. If that’s the case, shouldn’t there be more variety in the…
