Its Hammer Time! (Twins of Evil)

Welcome back to “Its Hammer time where I pick a few of my favorite films from that Haunted House of Horror fondly known as Hammer Films. Here's yet another recommendation-Twins of Evil!


Tagline:One Uses Her Beauty For Love! One Uses Her Lure For Blood!Which is the Virgin? Which is the Vampire?”

What happens when a thrill seeker gets more than what she bargained for? Well, Hammer's Twins of Evil has the answer! Loosely based on the vampire tale Carmillaand part of Hammer’s Karnstein Trilogy, (And often seen as the prequel despite its release after the previous Films: The Vampire Lovers and Lust for a Vampire.) Twins of Evil, is set within nineteenth century middle-Europe, where orphaned teenage twins Maria and Frieda go to live with their uncle Gustav Weil, (Played by the legendary actor and Hammer staple, Peter Cushing) who heads the Brotherhood, a vigilante group trying to stamp out vampirism. Needless to say, their methods are way arbitrary and inappropriate which result i…

Now that there's a rumor floating around about in regard to disgraced Director James Gunn working on the sequel to 2016's Suicide Squad, here's a review  originally published from the now defunct site-Supernaughts courtesy of my good friend Bop aka Bopnrumble.
I accepted a long time ago, that Hollywood makes movies for an as large as possible audience as possible. I also accepted that the entertainment factor wouldn't be optimal. Needless to say, I also accepted I would be witnessing serious crap. And of course, I accepted that comic movies will be different from the comics themselves, so I shouldn't judge them harshly. But sometimes there are exceptions.
The lowest point in comic movies was this year's X-Men: Apocraplypse.I never expected a comic movie would make X-Men: The Last Stand look like a masterpiece. Just when you think you saw the worst comic movie along comes Suicide Squad.
WHERE DO I FUCKING START????????
I am a big Suicide Squad fan. The 66 issue…

Blood Drive review

Image
Sometimes TV shows or movies slip past your radar. It can take a while before you catch up. Often it is through recommendation by friends or by TV and movies sites. I was looking forward to sinking my teeth into a TV show, because all my favorite shows are not running any episodes at the moment. Blood Drive was a welcome addition!




What can I say about Blood Drive? Well, for the moment let's say SyFy took it to the extreme. They have become hardcore. Now, I don't remember if I watched much SyFy stuff in the past, but I was always under the impression it was not really my kind of TV station. I was never a big fan of sci fi stuff. Sure, there were a few exceptions like the original Battlestar Galactica or Buck Rogers but mostly it was never my kind of genre. I didn't feel it. That is why I was never interested in what SyFy had to offer.




Now Blood Drive... That is not sci-fi to me. The goal of this show seems to be to piss off as many people as they can. Nothing is sacred it …

The Bop Drop: Remembering the unsung.

We live in the age of mediocrity. Most Hollywood movies of today suck. Most music of today sucks. Most sports athletes suck. Most comics of today suck. And to add for good measure Disney sucks, but that’s nothing new. The biggest problem that I have with mediocrity is that it is promoted as the best thing ever. People who don’t have talent at all become legends. This is the world we live in now.
When people are not mediocre they shine. You know they worked hard to master their craftsmanship and it shows. Their work actually speaks to you! The past few weeks SUCKED, because we lost some amazing creators. Those creators were not mediocre. They were very good at what they did.


The first is Carlos Ezquerra. He created the initial idea for Judge Dredd, but he wasn’t the first artist. Carlos is probably known most for his later work on Judge Dredd. He co-created Strontium Dog. He drew the legendary Preacher one-shot The Good Old Boys and he drew the Saint Of Killers limited series. I liked his…
