Mayhem Film Festival announces DOUBLE DATE, TOP KNOT DETECTIVE and FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 3: 3D

With its 13th edition fast approaching, Mayhem Film Festival is proud to announce the first three titles from its 2017 programme.

The festival will open with a preview screening of Benjamin Barfoot’s Double Date, which will be followed by a Q&A with members of the cast and crew. Double Date follows mild-mannered innocent Jim as he attempts to lose his virginity on the eve of his 30th birthday; but the beautiful sisters he and his friend Alex have met for the night, may have darker plans in mind. Guests for this event will be announced later in the summer.

Also on the line-up is the utterly hilarious Top Knot Detective, an Australian mockumentary about a 90s Japanese samurai/detective series known in Japan as ‘Ronin Suiri Tentai’ (‘Deductive Reasoning Ronin’) but known in Australia as ‘Top Knot Detective’. Battling ninjas, monsters, outrageous behaviour, and killer lines, it has it all and is not to be missed!

Wrapping up Mayhem’s first round of announcements, the festival will screen Friday the 13th Part III: 3D, on Friday 13 October, for its 13th edition – an evening with Jason by Crystal Lake, not for the superstitious.

More events, films and guests for Mayhem 2017 will be announced later in the summer.

Mayhem Film Festival will take place at Broadway, Nottingham on 12-15 October 2017 and more news will be revealed over the summer about this year’s edition. For more information, please visit

Baby Driver - Reviewed!

After being coerced into working for a crime boss, a young getaway driver finds himself taking part in a heist doomed to fail.
Director: Edgar Wright
Writer: Edgar Wright
Stars: Ansel Elgort, Jon Bernthal, Jon Hamm 

Hi folks,
Last Friday I finally got to see Baby Driver at my local Broadway Cinema which also had a brilliant Baby Driver DJ Set after and what a great night it was!
Baby Driver tells the story of Baby who was involved in a car crash as a young boy and as a result suffers from tinnitus, His skill is as a get away driver for various heist and he's payed top dollar for his amazing getaway skills.  The tinnitus he suffers results in him constantly wearing headphones banging out some top quality music throughout the film.
The opening heist scene is breathtaking whilst The John Spencer Blue explosion "Bell bottoms" blares out and from then on its pretty much non stop action and music. I read that director Edgar Wright had the idea years ago and finally got around to making the film he always wanted to and i for one am glad he did.
It is pretty much everything you have seen or heard before with Tarantino written all over it, Lashings of True Romance and Bonnie and Clyde but saying that it didn't suffer from it as many a film before this have tried and failed miserably.
The references to TV, Film and pop culture are constant, I gave up trying to recognise them after a while and just sat back and enjoyed the ride!
Another fantastically clever scene is near the beginning when Baby is walking down the street to the tune of Harlem Shuffle while the lyrics appear in various graffiti/shop signs as he walks past, Brilliant.
Baby Driver is definitely worth checking out at the cinema if you can, One of the best movies I've seen this year if not in a long while.

LIFE - Reviewed

"A team of scientists aboard the International Space Station discover a rapidly evolving life form, that caused extinction on Mars, and now threatens the crew and all life on Earth."

Director: Daniel Espinosa
Writers: Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick
Stars: Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson, Ryan Reynolds

Hello Folks,
Jonny T here with my review of my recent cinema trip to see sci-fi/horror movie LIFE.

I saw the trailer a while back and got quite excited then avoided anything else to do with it as to avoid spoilers. Tickets booked, off we went.

From what I had seen it was kind of ALIEN looking and I tried to put that fact out of mind but struggled with it because of the classic ALIEN was always in the back of my mind!
Some big star actors couldn't save it for me. Don't get me wrong there were some genuine great moments that made me cringe but overall the whole threat/scare level wasn't there. The ending was supposed to be a twist but honestly I personally could see it a mile off.
The visuals were great, Set aboard the international space station you had that thing as in the movie Gravity where things were constantly spinning that looked good, The first death (no spoilers) was pretty gross but honestly the CGI blood was dodgy as fuck, I reckon they must have added that afterwards when the budget had been just about spent!

The Mars alien jelly blob continues on a rampage throughout the ship and it's intelligence grows with it but unfortunately the tension didn't for me anyway.
The ending obviously leaves it wide open for a sequel/franchise and to be honest with all my moans i'd happily watch a follow up, Not the greatest but and easy watch that gets a little too much sentimental with character reflections on their lives at points but if you fancy something with a good bit of gore in space it's not that bad.
6/10 for me.

Weekend Of The Dead 2017 tickets available!

Hello Folks,
Jonny T here bringing you news of this years Weekend of the dead 2017. This years event is held once again at the 235 Casino in Manchester the weekend of 4th and 5th of November.
I attended last years and it was amazing! I've been attending festivals for many years now and i have to say this is one of the best i have even been to. Years ago there used to be these things called Film Fairs where it was mainly dealers selling rare VHS, Figures and posters etc. There were a few of these that started to bring in guests and i have been lucky enough over the years to meet some great people such as Tom Savini, Michael Berryman and even the late great Ingrid Pitt. The film fairs have now become massive events that are now "Conventions" or "Comic Cons" whilst this is great for fans it usually means thousands people, Hours of queuing and ridiculously priced autographs, I think one of the craziest ones I've heard of late was John Cusack who was charging £80 for an autograph and more if you wanted a photo whilst he was wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses!!
Now as you probably know and it's quite obvious from the blog logo i am a massive fan of the Romero zombie films, Early last year i saw on Facebook a group called weekend of the dead that were holding a convention in Manchester featuring starts of Romero classics Dawn, Day and Land of the dead, i had to go. So i put it to my wife and big man Gav and the tickets were booked and we counted down the days.
We travelled up from Nottingham on the Sunday morning to Manchester and easily found the place about 10AM. To our surprise when we arrived the were no big ques, No herding around like cattle no pushing and shoving and that turned out like that all day it was brilliant and very relaxed there were a lot of people there but the organisation was superb.  We had a look around some great merchandise stalls and purchased tickets for which autographs we wanted and they were all very responsibly priced. We entered the main room which was set out with the actors on their tables around the side  and a stage at the front where a Q&A panel was set up and it had just started with Eugene Clark (Big Daddy) from Land Of The Dead.  The Q&A panels continued throughout the day with some truly fascinating stories  and planned with enough time intervals for you to get your stuff signed, Grab a coffee and have a chat with the guests. Like i say it was so relaxed and the organisers and guests were all so nice it was a welcome return to conventions for me. Since the convention i have become friends with a lot of people there and looking forward to seeing them all again this year.

2016 line up, Great photo!

The line up for this year has been announced and it is every much as awesome as last year! I have put  the links below for your tickets and everything you need to know. Hope to see you there!

Hello Folks,
Just a heads up that Under The Shadow has got a UK release date of January 23rd! I've been waiting for this since it's limited run late last year in UK cinemas. I unfortunately missed it in the cinema but having read about it and seeing that it made a lot of peoples 2016 top lists i personally am very much looking for to seeing it. I have secured a review disc so watch this space for a review coming very soon,
Jonny T.

“The feminist horror film that scared Sundance silly”

“imagine an Asghar Farhadi remake of The Babadook”

“The first great horror movie of the year”

Tehran, 1988. Shideh lives amid the chaos of the Iran-Iraq war. Accused of subversion and blacklisted from medical college, she is in a state of malaise. Furthermore, her husband is at war, leaving her alone to protect their young daughter, Dorsa. Shortly after a missile hits their apartment building but fails to explode, Dorsa falls ill and her behaviour becomes increasingly disturbed. Searching for answers, Shideh learns from a superstitious neighbour that the cursed, unexploded missile might have brought in djinn – malevolent spirits that travel on the wind. Convinced that a supernatural force within the building is attempting to possess Dorsa, Shideh finds she has no choice but to confront it if she is to save her daughter

On DVD, Blu-ray & Digital HD Monday 20th February 2017 







A dazzlingly original, darkly funny and disturbing gem with a genre-bending twist, about a small town teenager in the US, obsessed with serial killers, who unwittingly discovers the identity of the killer who has been slaughtering residents for body parts.

Featuring a star-making lead performance from 17-year-old Max Records, and an extraordinary turn from Back To The Future’s legendary Christopher Lloyd, I AM NOT A SERIAL KILLER is the most sheerly entertaining and audaciously offbeat offering since Donnie Darko hit cinema screens.

A big hit when it premiered at the South By Southwest Film Festival in March, nominated for 3 British Independent Film Awards, and was a must-see film at the prestigious BFI London Film Festival, it proves that left field indie cinema is alive and kicking, even if the Clayton County killer’s victims aren’t. “Hit the switch John...”

Max Records (Where The Wild Things Are, The Sitter)

Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?)

Laura Fraser (The Missing series 2, Breaking Bad, Talk To Me)

Karl Geary (Gravity TV series)

Billy O’Brien (BAFTA-nominated director, Isolation, Scintilla)

Dan Wells (bestselling author of Mr Monster, I Don’t Want To Kill You)

Robbie Ryan (Award-winning director of photography, Wuthering Heights, Red Road, Philomena, Slow West, Fishtank, I, Daniel Blake, American Honey)


John Wayne Cleaver is dangerous and he knows it. He is 16 and helps his Mum and Aunt at the family Mortuary. John is obsessed with serial killers but really doesn’t want to become one. So for his own sake and the safety of those around him he lives by rigid rules to keep himself “good” and “normal”.

When somebody starts murdering people in John’s small Mid-West town, he has to investigate and risk letting his own dark side out in order to stop the killer. But without his rules to keep him in check he might be more dangerous than the monster he is stalking. As the icy winter tightens its grip on the community a deadly supernatural game of cat and mouse ensues...

I AM NOT A SERIAL KILLER, directed by Billy O’Brien (who made the award-winning Irish horror hit Isolation), although deliciously unclassifiable, is best described as a sensationally strange horror/sci-fi coming- of-age black comedy. Adapted from the first in a series of novels from bestselling YA author Dan Wells, the tremendously sharp script left-foots the audience at every moment, right up to the deliriously unexpected and thrilling finale.

Lead actor, 17-year-old Max Records, is superb as the teen-turned-detective John Wayne Cleaver, torn between struggling with his own demons, and a real one.
The supporting cast includes the legendary Christopher Lloyd (Doc from Back to the Future) on fabulous form as the Blake-quoting pensioner with a dark secret, Breaking Bad’s Laura Fraser, and a scene stealing turn from Raymond Brandstrom as John’s best buddy Max.

A British/Irish co-production shot in Minnesota, the same icy small town locale as Fargo, and with similarly strange things afoot, the film refuses to play by the rules, mixing a quirky coming-of-age comedy with the pathos of small town life, and adding dashes of gruesome gore with surreal and heart-stopping moments of science fiction shock, like Napoleon Dynamite crossed with Six Feet Under or Jack Sholder’s tongue in cheek sci-fi horror The Hidden mixed up with Dexter, shot through the retro vibe of TV hit Stranger Things.

Filmed on 16mm by award-winning director of photography Robbie Ryan (Slow West, I, Daniel Blake), the film has a beautifully distinctive and unsettling look, and one of the best end shots in recent memory. Matched with a haunting soundtrack, I AM NOT A SERIAL KILLER feels wonderfully different and evocative.

So the big G is back with a huge crash,Bang, Wallop!
I as you may know am a huge Godzilla fan and was delighted to hear the news that Japan was finally going to do another movie, I don't mind the Hollywood versions but there is nothing like a Godzilla movie from the lad of the rising sun.
It starts with Godzilla rising from the depths and heading towards mainland Tokyo, They try everything and every weapon they can to stop him but surprisingly everything fails. Then then form a team of Nerds and Scientists to get there heads together to sop the giant beast once and for all.

Shin Godzilla is proper old school Godzilla at it's best. It starts with a massive scene and the end half hour or so is spectacular.  As with all the Japanese movies it has it's slow parts with various sub stories but you are always waiting for him to appear and when he does it's well wort the wait.
It's a mixture of man in a suit as well as great looking models and CGI, It has a lot of humour but not to the point that it gets ridiculous. The monster itself looks brilliant with a fair few surprises up it's big sleeve. It also ends quite obviously leaving it open to a sequel which I am totally fine with.
Running time at around 1hr 40 its just about the right length.
So in summing up welcome back big man! Long may you continue to stomp for many films to come.

My Favourite films of 2016.

Hello Folks,
Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and best wishes for the new year! As a lot of people have done I bring you my top films of 2016. They are in no particular order and some may not be released until this year but I was fortunate enough to catch some of these at Nottingham's very own MAYHEM FESTIVAL . So hope you enjoy and i'm sure there are a few you have seen and maybe some you haven't but all are well worth checking out in my humble opinion,
Jonny T.

Train to Busan.
A film that has made many a list of 2016 and rightly so. In my opinion the best Asian zombie movie ever made. With probably about 3000+ zombie films last year Train to Busan stands head and shoulders above the rest. Brilliant story, Superbly acted, Flawless effects and extremely moving, It even made my dad cry! With a very limited cinema run at the back end of last year hopefully we shall get a release date soon and I for one will definitely getting it. On the downside though there has just been announced a Hollywood remake, No surprise but forget that! See this as soon as you can.

Due for release in 2017  I was fortunate enough to see it at last years MAYHEM festival. There was a lot of talk before the screening of it showing at festivals and people fainting! I knew little about it and it blew me away, A cannibal/coming of age movie of a young vegetarian girl who meets here older sister at veterinary college who has to go through various initiations in her first year.  The acting and cinematography are superb. It starts off a little slow but when the shocks start coming they come thick and fast. It also has a real kick in the balls twist. Be sure to keep RAW on your radar for 2017 it's brilliant!

Sadly this is said to be the last movie from the superb Studio Ghibli but there has been talk of future projects mainly in collaboration with other studios, Fingers crossed on that!
Marnie tells the story of a troubled teenage girl who is sent to the Japanese countryside to get her head and life back together. During secret nightly walks she becomes friends with a young girl at a seemingly abandoned grand home on the other side of the lake. When Marnie was there tells a brilliant story with all the charm and heart string pulling as well as the unique brilliant Ghibli animation. Animation may not be your thing but if you haven't seen any Ghibli I would whole hardheartedly recommend you do especially this. It's set for release early 2017 and I will definitely being adding this one to the collection.

Probably best described as the "Marmite" movie of the year, Some people loved it, Some hated it.
Its gross but for me hilarious and a brilliant soundtrack. I found myself in tears laughing and getting some strange looks of people in the cinema. It has a silly story and some jokes do repeat themselves a lot and i am still trying to work out what the end was about! I have since brought the Blu Ray and the soundtrack on Pink Vinyl. All i can really say is put some grease in your coffee and give it a go.

Another brilliant film from New Zealand. Director Taika Waititi does a superb job with an awesome cast in fantastic locations. Young Ricky is sent to a foster home way out in the mountains where he slowly gets used to the country life. Whilst out on a walk with his guardian Hec (Sam Neil) Hec has an accident where he can no longer walk and they become stuck in the wilderness. This leads to a massive manhunt basically suggesting that young Rick has been kidnapped. It may not sound the greatest plot line but there is so much more to it than just that. If you fancy a change from hum drum Hollywood please watch this. One the best movies i have seen in years.

Also due for release in 2017, The eyes of my mother is shot in black and white and brilliant for it. Deep dark and all round grim this is sure to be a hit in 2017 and a great start to the year for horror.
Tragedy hits a young girl in her remote country home and we see through various acts over the years what effect this has on her and how  she deals with it all. I though it had slight tones of Texas Chainsaw Massacre to it but not so in your face. Part subtitled and like I said filmed in black and white it looks superb.Unlike many a horror over the past few years that had more style than substance The eyes of my mother has it all for me.
 A fantastic debut from Nicolas Pesce and I feel it's destined to become a cult classic and I for one am looking forward to seeing what he comes up with in the future.
