I’ll be taking part in an on-going podcast called Hammered, dedicated to examining the more ghoulish output of the British Hammer Film Productions studio.
Starting with The Quatermass Xperiment (1955) and ending (maybe) with To the Devil a Daughter (1976), the discussions will be hosted by J G Byrne and aided by a rotating guest list. [...]

Mon, 14 August 2017 Fire Walk With Me: At Home

I had wonderful welcome-home loot waiting for me after my trip to Helsinki: copies of my Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me monograph.
Even though the book had been published before I left for Finland, the event had the hazy quality of a wistful dream. This wonderful stack of beautifully-produced volumes brought it crashing through [...]

I recently received the deluxe edition of the anthology The Madness of Dr Caligari, edited by Joe Pulver, published by Fedogan and Bremer, encased in a slip cover, signed by all the contributors, and with beautiful artwork on the endpapers by Nick Gucker. What a beauty!

Wed, 19 February 2014 picture palace

Here’s a photo I took on Saturday in Galway of the newly-constructed Picture Palace in the city centre.
It’s a three-screen art cinema, that will also have a café, bar, film/art book and dvd shop, and an online film archive facility.
This has been a long, much-anticipated project, and is the perfect fit for a bohemian city [...]

Sun, 10 July 2011 troll hunter

On Friday I went to the showing of the Norwegian monster movie TrollHunter (Trolljegeren, 2010), as part of the Galway Film Fleadh. It’s written by André Øvredal and Håvard S. Johansen, and directed by Øvredal.
This film follows a well-worn path of supposedly being the raw footage from a documentary that three college students were shooting [...]

Tue, 05 July 2011 sunset, then the lesbian aliens

I snapped this image late this evening down by the River Corrib in Galway city. The Film Fleadh kicked off tonight, so I passed a long line of people, some dressed up smartly, waiting to get into the Rowing Club. That’s the official after-movie venue for the Fleadh, and it has a lovely section at [...]

Mon, 08 November 2010 women in horror recognition month 2011

February this year saw the inaugural Women in Horror Recognition Month, which was an initiative started by Hannah Nuerotica out of frustration because of a perceived lack of women working in the horror industry (literature, cinema, television, comics, etc.). Of course, there are a lot of women working in the industry, but there has been [...]
