Didn’t pick up the November issue of Britain’s longest-running horror magazine, The Dark Side? In that case, you’ll have missed the first instalment of what could become a regular comic strip if we can just persuade editor Allan Bryce he has room.
The artwork’s by my regular collaborator Chrissie Harper (you can see more recent illustrations at her own website, Chez Chrissie, where you can also support Chrissie’s webcomics via her Patreon page). The idea is to lampoon a different horror or science fiction movie each time, and we’ll be concentrating on older films because too many of the more recent releases are already laughable without any input from us.
Anyway, if you like this debut effort, particularly if you’re a regular Dark Side reader, please let Allan know via firstname.lastname@example.org.

A couple of images from Sunday’s interviews at Leicester’s Grindhouse Planet Film Festival, featuring organiser Marc Hamill and award-winner Liam Banks. Meanwhile, Marc announced today that he’s already taking submissions for the 2017 event. Great to hear it was such a success.
Update: The interview with Marc aired on 10 December as part of both Birmingham News Weekend Magazine and The Birmingham Lowdown: Best Bits.

Just returned from a brief but rewarding 90-mile round-trip to Leicester’s Shed Venue, where I talked to Roasted Films‘ Marc Hamill about organising the first Grindhouse Planet Film Festival, as well as Superfreak Media’s Liam Banks, fresh from winning the event’s 48-Hour Movie Challenge with his faux trailer for Night of the Demented Virgins from Hell.

Further to my attending last month’s Festival of Fantastic Films in Manchester to conduct Dagmar Lassander’s guest interview, I’ve now been approached by Pan Macmillan to interview Adam Nevill at a Waterstones promotion for his forthcoming novel, Under a Watchful Eye. If all goes according to plan, the event will be held in the centre of Birmingham, Adam’s former home city.
Update 21/11: Unfortunately, it appears Adam’s schedule is rather over-loaded, so the event has been cancelled.
