Interview: Seth Breedlove

Director/producer Seth Breedlove sat down with Cult Faction’s Rhys Perry to discuss his latest release Terror in the Skies and how he came to focus on making cryptid documentaries… How did you come up with the idea for Small Town Monsters? Small Town Monsters began life in October […]

Review: Dark Phoenix (2019)

Dark Phoenix aka X-Men The Last Stand 2 is the final entry to the wildly varying X-Men franchise, provided that the abysmal looking New Mutants film never sees the light of day. The film takes place in the 1990s and sees the events of the Dark Phoenix saga […]

Review: Terror in the Skies (2019)

Terror in the Skies is an independent documentary from the renowned indie production company Small Town Monsters. The documentary takes a look at flying or winged phenomena within the illinois area, with the subjects ranging from the famed Thunderbird to the more dubious “Chicago Mothman”. The Small Town […]

Review: Hellboy (2019)

Hellboy 2019 was released earlier this month. This film is a reboot of the 2004 film of the same name, and has been a point of contention for those who love the original. Reboots are a temperamental thing. Most reboots are either terrible (Ghostbusters 2016) or surpass their […]

Review- Cobra Kai Season 2

Cobra Kai emerged last year as a dark horse in the tv world. Nobody could have expected a Karate Kid sequel series 30 years on could be anything for a nostalgia fuelled heartless cash grab. When it was released however it turned out to be a phenomenal show. […]

Review: Pet Sematary (2019)

Pet Sematary follows the Creed family, Doctor Louis Creed, his wife Rachel and his two small children Ellie and Gage as they move to a quiet Maine town to escape the hustle and bustle of central Boston. While there they encounter the Pet Sematary, a pet burial ground […]

Review: Us (2019)

US is the new horror/thriller film from Director Jordan Peele, director of the smash hit 2017 movie Get Out. The film sees a family have to fend off evil doppelgangers of themselves and their friends in order to survive. Starring Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Shahadi Wright Joseph and […]

Review: Captain Marvel (2019)

Captain Marvel is the most recent film in the MCU, and tells the story of Kree supersoldier Vers as she travels to Earth in an attempt to end an enduring galactic conflict between the Kree and the Skrulls, two embittered alien races hellbent on mutual extermination. While on […]

Review: After Life

Ricky Gervais’ new Netflix series After Life came out last week. Written, directed by and starring Gervais, the 6 episode mini series sees middle-aged Tony trying to cope with the loss of his wife to cancer. This series is deeply conflicting to me, and I can’t fully decide […]

Review- Painkillers (2019)

Painkillers, directed by Roxy Shih, tells the story of surgeon and doctor John Clarke who becomes stricken with intense pain after being in a car crash which killed his young son. The only solution to the pain is to drink fresh human blood. I thoroughly enjoyed this film. […]

Review: Glass (2019)

Well, Glass shattered my expectations. After 2016’s sleeper hit Split turned out to be a stealth sequel to 2000’s Unbreakable, all eyes were on M.Night Shyamalan to see if he could knock the third instalment in his “Eastrail 177” trilogy out of the park. Personally I think he […]

Review: Bumblebee (2018)

Bumblebee is the 6th film in the extremely hit or miss Transformers series. I say hit or miss but so far the only true hit is Bumblebee. I absolutely loved this film, and this may be the first step towards a brighter future for the Transformers series. Starring […]

Review: Overlord (2018)

Overlord is an action horror war film set on the eve of D-day. When an advance squad are sent ahead to disable a vital radio relay tower to enable the surprise landing they stumble across a secret Wolfenstein-esque Nazi science program set on reanimating the dead into something […]

Review: Venom (2018)

Knock knock let the devil in. These are lyrics from the accompanying Eminem song for Venom. Unfortunately it seems Marvel took this literally when they signed over the Venom rights to Sony. Anybody who knows anything about Venom knows that he is first and foremost a Spider-Man villain […]

Review: The Predator (2018)

As any self respecting film nerd I hold the original Predator in the highest esteem. It was a revolutionary film, and to this day is one of the best sci-fi/action films. Predator 2 is fine. Not good or bad. Just fine. Predators is my personal favourite of the […]
