Posted by on | 1 Comment

So what is APOCALYPTIC? A new horror film that centers around a doomsday cult, because really is there anything more terrifying than a cult? Brrrrr, crazy.

Anyway, details on the film are scarce right now, which I do think works in its favour because the less I know the more excited I am for it. You can get some […]

Alicia Lewis hijacks The Monsters Eye, keep reading for this fascinating story …

Moebius2

Nearly three months ago the news broke that Kim Ki-duk’s latest film, MOEBIUS, had received a ‘restricted’ rating from the Korean Media Ratings Board (KMRB).
