A mysterious artefact, a hero wearing a leather jacket, Nazis, and a Zepplin. No this isn’t an Indiana Jones movie, it’s The Rocketeer. In 1991, 13 years after our first look at Iron Man (I’m not kidding… *this* is what he looked like in 1978), and 17 years before Robert Downey Jr would redefine the […]

In this article, we’re going to break away from the normal ‘forgotten gem’ format and take a look at a rather unique animated film, Away, that was the brainchild of Latvian filmmaker Gints Zilbalodis. And what a remarkable film it was. The film opens with the protagonist hanging from a parachute that has been snagged […]

Monica BoshoffLover of cats, Fleetwood Mac, whiskey, motorcycles, books and anything macabre and witchy in that exact order! A marketing and social media ninja by day and mortuary student and content writer by night, Monica has a passion for the environment and anything obscure (and is somewhat of a self-proclaimed gore whore). Monica found the […]

Fairy tale realness! Warning, just like the real fairy tales, this article is not meant for children. So a teenager gets cursed and falls asleep and when she finally wakes up, the first thing she sees are two little crotch-goblins trying to suckle on her fingers. PLOT TWIST: those are her twins! SUPER PLOT TWIST: […]
