The Walking Dead Season 4 - "The Grove" Review *contains spoilers*

"The Grove" will probably go down in history as one of the bleakest episodes of a television show ever made. Showrunner Scott Gimple takes charge and delivers a script that delves deeper into how children cope in a world filled with such horror.

Essentially this episode uses a common formula that The Walking Dead often relies on. People start off depressed about their situation, they find a moment of hope and then they end up in an even darker place. They learn something about themselves and have to deal with the nightmares this world throws at them. In essence this episode is as formulaic as they come, however it is the subject matter that allows "The Grove" to stand out.

Lizzie (Brighton Sharbino) and her sister Mika (Kyla Kenedy) have two very different outlooks on life and the world around them. Mika maybe younger, but she understands what the zombies are and that they need to be dealt with. However she is also full of hope for the future believing that their …

The Walking Dead Season 4 - "Alone" Review *contains spoilers*

This week is all about our survivors sticking together. The aptly titled "Alone" lazily delivers its plot in yet another episode that treads water. However although there are problems, it still manages to entertain.

This is due to the cast performances. This half of the cast are coming into their own and the show is better for it. Lawrence Gilliard, Jr. is effortlessly likeable as Bob, his positive attitude is a nice change of pace for the show. In essence "Alone" is all about Bob and although we have seen the characters flaws, it is far more satisfying seeing him as a positive force. He could perhaps replace Hershel as the heart of the show if Gilliard keeps up this charming performance.

Travelling with him are Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green), both of which have different plans for surviving. The minor conflict of interest (Maggie wants to find Glenn and Sasha wants to find somewhere to survive) just serves as a springboard for writer Curti…

Film Review - Grand Piano

Review by Lisa Fremont

Grand Piano is a taut thriller starring Elijah Wood as Tom Selznick. Tom is the "brightest piano player of his generation" and he is about to do his first performance in five years. Tom is clearly on edge about this performance, but his wife Emma (Kerry Bishé) is working hard on keeping him focused. Emma is a movie star in her own right and tends to take attention away from Tom. Now, is this something that irritates Tom?

The Walking Dead Season 4 - "Still" Review *contains spoilers*

Another week and another change of pace for The Walking Dead. Gone are the multiple narratives and tonal shifts. Instead we have a character piece that focuses solely on Daryl and Beth.  It is an episode full of snake eating, moonshine and arson.


This is a well acted episode that is crippled by its pacing. Writer Angela Kang and director  Julius Ramsay do a lot of good here, with their crowning achievement being the development of Beth. She has finally become a three dimensional character. It doesn't matter that her actual character is full of cliché and annoying teenage tendencies, it is just nice to see that the show has finally bothered to develop her. Emily Kinney's performance also improves due to the wealth of material she is given. Kinney may not be the best actress on the show, but her warm nature really helps sell Beth as a character. Aside from Beth the episode also delves deeper into Daryl.

Daryl has become the action man of the group and this is an episode that ma…

Short Film Review – Familiar

I love independent films. I especially love short films from Indie film makers. I find it interesting to see what can be produced in such a small amount of time. So when Zach from Fatal Pictures emailed to see if I'd be interested in helping the Kickstarter campaign for his next film HEIR, I decided to dig a little deeper and see what else Fatal had produced since I wasn't familiar (see what I did there?) with them.

Familiar is a 24 minute film that tears up any rule book on making a horror film. Dodd is a middle-aged man that hates his life. He wants to escape his wife, pregnant, is unimpressed with just about everything life has to offer. He has a lump growing and hears voices from it. Is this a nervous breakdown being had by a very depressed man? Or is it something more sinister?


That's about as much recap as I can do without spoiling the film for everyone but I can tell you a few things. Writer/Director Richard Powell has produced a supreme script and managed to pull …

Indie Film Trailer - The Berzerk Death Dealer

Indie film news from Planet Boom Boom Pictures Ltd and the first trailer is now out for The Berzerk Death Dealer, and quite honestly it is all types of weird and fascinating!
Young Alejandro is one bad-ass dude. As number one assassin for the Demon Clan, he's got 99,999 heads to prove it. He can smoke a joint in one puff, drain a bottle in one gulp, and talk trash better than anyone. And when he gets going, his blades sing, his fists fly, and his enemies' heads explode.

His demonic master, Basilisk, has plans for Alejandro -- but everything changes when Alejandro discovers his humanity and spares the life of a young mother. Now Basilisk is out to destroy Alejandro, with the help of a new protégé -- Amon, a ruthless assassin formed from the souls of 1,000 serial killers...
