Film Review: FRACTURED (2016)

April Pearson and Karl Davies are a likeable couple on a weekend getaway to a remote cottage. Their journey along interchangeable dark English country roads involves inevitable car trouble, an obligatory horror movie hiatus at a petrol station with a customer service representative nicknamed “Lurch” and a typically unsettling public toilet visit.

Film Review: MASTER OF DARK SHADOWS (2019)


MASTER OF DARK SHADOWS **** USA 2019 Dir: David Gregory. 92 mins

Co-produced by Severin and directed by veteran David Gregory, this informative, absorbing feature documentary rounds up an impressive bunch of collaborators, family and famous fans (from William F Nolan and Barbara Steele through to Alan Ball and Whoopi Goldberg) to present an authentic yet affectionate portrait of the life and career of writer-director Dan Curtis. Curtis, who died in 2006, is portrayed as a no-nonsense, talented writer in constant pursuit of the next big idea and with a useful salesman background. After breaking through on CBS with a golf show, he milked the late-60’s soap opera boom by conceiving DARK SHADOWS, boldly putting a supernatural spin on daytime TV and bringing vampires to previously uncharted small screen territory.
