Suggested Audio Candy:



I love it when a plan comes together. Brothers Kiah & Tristan Roache-Turner must be over the moon after showing what a little hard graft and dedication can achieve. Their crowdfunded zombie road movie, Wyrmwood: Road of The Dead, is the epitome of a labor of love…

How does one pick up the pieces?
Everytime they fall
After all we’re not supposed
To ever drop the ball
How does one rebuild an empire?
Every time it crumbles
Rationale suggests we’re merely humans prone to fumbles


Society seems to know best
Can dissuade staunch believers
And doesn’t have the slightest care
Regarding where that leaves us
Lines can blur, our dreams then fade
Expecting no revival
To many it may seem as though they’re beaten by their rival

man crosses niagara falls on tightrope

So life’s not fair get over it
Or simply give up trying
Unscrupulous these mouths are bitter
Lame and flat out lying
Managing to lift this curse
And not let it define you
Testifies that you’re alive
Extended lines then guide you

This rundown will not take into account sequels, hence the decision not to include Rick Rosenthal’s masterful Halloween II or Joseph Zito’s similarly notable Friday The 13th Part VI: The Final Chapter.

After much deliberation I have decided to refrain from paying reverence to Wes Craven’s enigmatic dream weaver Freddy Kruger. This is neither an oversight or an act of defiance by Keeper; simply a decision that A Nightmare on Elm Street not quite fit this particular criteria. Besides, we all know Fred by now; how much can…
