  • Interview: Steve Oram, co-writer and co-star of Sightseers

    Movie Feature | Matt | 25th March 2013

    Sightseers is released on DVD and Blu-ray today! This is excellent news because 1) It is a fantastic, wonderfully dark and brilliantly funny film that everyone should own, and 2) it has given us another opportunity to tell you that it is a fantastic, wonderfully dark and brilliantly funny film that everyone should own. Helping us out with that last task is Steve Oram, who makes up a sizable portion of the talent pool that spawned this magnificent movie and who allowed me to interview him to mark the film’s release.

  • Win a Sightseers poster, but not the one that we're on

    Movie Competition | Matt | 27th November 2012

    Did we mention that our name appears on the new Sightseers poster? ‘Cos it does. We’re giving away signed copies of a different poster, mind, but you can see our one up and around tube stations everywhere (in London). And spotting our name while out and about is surely just as heartwarming as winning this competition, isn’t it?

    Movie Review | Ali | 21st October 2012

    "If I'm not back in 20 minutes... come and rescue me," says Kill List's protagonist Jay to his hitman partner Gal, as he enters a warehouse housing the unsuspecting pervert behind unimaginably sick snuff films, preparing for a bloodbath. We wait with Gal in the car as 20 excruciating minutes pass. Shit. Eventually, fearing for his friend, Gal reluctantly takes his gun and sidles slowly into the building, anticipating death around every corner. We hear horrible sounds interrupt excruciating periods of silence as Gal gets closer to seeing his worst fears realised. Finally, Gal swoops around the corner ready to confront whatever horrors await, only to find Jay – hammer in hand, covered in blood from his still- twitching victim, happy as a pig in shit – staring back at him. Beat. "Was that 20 minutes?"
