Zombie Wars (2007)

“Nobody knows exactly how it happened. Some think it was the tail of a comet that passed to close to the earth, while others believed that it was simply time for man to atone for thousands of years of sinning. Whatever the reason, the dead had risen from the ground, and they were hungry! After…

Elysium (2013)

-Review by Paul Ewbank- Before I start I just wanna point out that 3 of my last 4 articles have been about films/books which have only been out for a few weeks. Is Ablogalypse in danger of becoming a relevant source of information on current media? I sure hope not. So anyway, Elysium is the…

Rubber (2010)

I’m not entirely sure that this film constitutes ‘apocalyptic, post-apocalyptic and dystopian’ in the normal sense, however – with dystopian generally being defined as the world we know only messed up – I feel this film fits that description enough that I can share my experience on here! My overwhelming view on Rubber can best…

Total Recall (2012)

After having watched the original Total Recall (1990) I was a little skeptical when it came to watching the remake as, with many films where the original is good, the remakes tend to fall flat by comparison. With Total Recall (2012) I think I was both right and wrong to be skeptical; in many ways…

Prophet- Brothers (Image Comics)

-Review by Paul Ewbank- The First Volume of Image Comic’s reboot of the obscure sci fi series Prophet was a bizarre, at times incomprehensible mess of body horror, grim atmosphere and breathtaking alien scenery. Though for much of it I had little idea what was going on I was sufficiently enthralled by the fantastic art…

Surf Nazis Must Die

-Review by Paul Ewbank- Reviewing a film called Surf Nazis Must Die seems a tad pointless. This article is basically just me letting you know that this film exists, and it is exactly what you think it’s gonna be. Knowing that, your reaction will either be to download a copy from some illicit site, or…

Total Recall (1990)

I thought, seeing as I have the remake on my to-watch list, I should give the original Total Recall a watch. I was not disappointed! Total Recall is everything you would expect from a 90’s sci-fi-action film starring Arnie. The acting isn’t the best, the gore is extravagant, the technology beautifully ‘futuristic’*and the plot is…

Neon Genesis Evangelion

-Article by Paul Ewbank- First thing you need to know about this anime series is that the opening theme song is absolutely badass. Go check it out.* Right now. Second thing you need to know is that it’s one of the most messed up things you’ll ever see. Third things you need to know is…

Hellboy

-Review by Paul Ewbank- Why have I not talked about Hellboy yet? So Hellboy is a comic book character created by Mike Mignola for Dark Horse Comics, later made into a pair of Movies by my boy Guillermo del Toro. Hellboy holds the distinction of being the only non Marvel/DC superhero that most people have…

Judge Dredd (1995)

“In the third millennium, the world changed. Climate, nations, all were in upheaval…The earth transformed into a poisonous scorched desert, known as “the Cursed Earth.” Millions of people crowded into a few Mega Cities, where roving bands of street savages created violence the justice system could not control. Law as we know it collapsed. From…
