The Return of Quatermass

• We continue our interview with Val Guest, and look at his Hammer Quatermass movies, newly released on DVD with commentaries. “I’m delighted that these films are reaching a new audience,” says Guest. “If I’d have known back then they were going to be a world-wide cult for the best part of 50 years, I’d have asked for more money!”

Stargate movie conceptPatrick Tatopoulos
• The creature creator who has designed for such blockbuster films as Stargate, Independence Day and Godzilla talks about his recent projects including…

Pitch Black and the TV movie of Clive Barker’s Saint Sinner. “I don’t just like to work on big-budget productions,” Tatopoulos explains. “This project is very exciting. Clive Barker is a very visual guy, and the flavour of the project is very definitely based on his vision.”

Horror of the DarkDarkness Falls
• Actress Emma Caulfield – Anya from Buffy – talks about her new Horror movie, in which she faces a ghastly creature that stalks the town of Darkness Falls.

Plus, we meet Jason Mattherws and Richard London, the effects men who created the sinister Tooth Fairy.

Bye bye BuffyGoodbye Buffy
“The show as we know it is over.
"We are gearing up to tell a fabulous huge great arc. This is how I want to go out. On top, at our best.”

As Sarah Michelle Gellar finally calls it a day, we look at Buffy’s final season, and speculate on what might follow…

• We meet the director of a new British Horror movie starring Spice Girl Mel B and rising British actor Tom Hardy from Star Trek Nemesis. The film is set in a diabolical laboratory where a group of animal rights activists are subjected to a series of horrific experiments.

Jeepers Creepers 2
• A photo special looking at Victor Salva’s hotly-anticipated Horror sequel and the return of the terrifying Creeper! But don’t expect any easy explanations. “The second I decide in my mind what he is and where he comes from, and why he’s here, it will all be over for me creatively,” says Salva.

  • Ron Perlman will star in Guillermo Del Toro’s Hellboy
  • Jude Law stars in a new Retro Sci-Fi project
  • There’s a sequel for Seven with Morgan Freeman (but not Brad Pitt)
  • Kevin Smith’s Scary Movie
  • A stunning poster featuring Sarah Michelle Gellar as she leaves Buffy behind.
The Fright of Your Life
  • Jonathan Rigby looks at a classic moment from Horror History – the appearance of Dr Freudstein in The House by the Cemetery
  • Kim Newman looks at some American adaptations of Sherlock Holmes (starring Matt Frewer and James D’Arcy) which take more than a few liberties with Conan Doyle!
The Pitt of Horror
  • Actress Ingrid Pitt looks at Vampire lore from Egyptian times, from Osiris the God of Resurrection to the flesh-eating Lamiae that terrorized the Greeks!
