We Are Chester writer and real ale aficionado Dyfan Morris reports on his first visit to the Cheshire Beer Festival. This popular event took place at Chester Racecourse and gave fans of ales, beer, ciders and perrys the chance to enjoy taking their pick from a wide variety of casks, while enjoying the company of likeminded people and live music to keep their toes a-tapping.

Another Sell-Out Success for the Cheshire Beer Festival

It was more than a little pleasing to walk into CAMRA’s 2015 Cheshire Beer Festival from the darkness of a winter’s evening at Chester Racecourse. In contrast to the wintry and silent ground, we were greeted by a cosy gathering of likeminded revellers…

Cloverfield has a sequel!!

What a surprise to wake up to this morning as almost from nowhere Paramount Pictures have been quietly making a sequel to the 2008 movie, Cloverfield.

You remember the movie, the one where a group of friends venture deep into the streets of New York on a rescue mission during a rampaging monster attack!

The first movie was made on an estimated budget of $25,000,000 and has become a cult movie for fans of the rampaging creature.

Yep, that’s the one, there was news of a sequel to the movie coming out, with IMDB having a page calling it “Untitled Cloverfield Sequel”, but now we know the name, “10 Cloverfield Lane”.

An overview of Pierce Brosnan #NoEscape


Pierce Brosnan through the years

NO ESCAPE is the intense, action-packed thriller, where an American business man (Owen Wilson) and his family suddenly find themselves in the middle of a violent political uprising, frantically looking for a safe escape.

Pierce Brosnan plays Hammond, a British expatriate who comes to the rescue when the Dwyer family face a violent uprising is Southeast Asia. To mark the release, we explore Brosnan’s incredibly varied acting career and his iconic filmography. Of course with a filmography as long and impressive as Pierces, there is no way to cover every great role or great film he has appeared in (do you remember his small appearance in the classic film The Long Good Friday.) But do take a quick look over some highlights from the big screen.


NO ESCAPE is available to download on Digital HD on the 28th December 2015 and on Blu-ray™ and

ITV cancel Jekyll & Hyde


Jekyll 1Charlie Higson’s Jekyll & Hyde won’t be returning for a second season, the creator has announced.

“Sad day today as ITV announce they don’t want any more #JekyllandHyde Ah well, I tried. It was a grand adventure while it lasted,” Higson tweeted on January 5th, adding, “We had some great stories lined up for series 2. Thanks for all the messages of support… I’m moving onto other things.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter, ratings had fallen to 1.8 million viewers by the end of the run, which was marked with controversy over its timeslot. One episode had to be postponed as a result of the Paris shootings.

The series was released on DVD on 28 December.

Oh dear Tristan, you’ve done it again. So there I am sitting in the hair salon, goop on my hair waiting patiently to be transformed and reading this. Cue falling about laughing – out loud! Strange looks from both the girls and the other clients. I think I actually snorted twice. SO embarrassment!

Tom Weekly is at it again – sabotaging school testing (do I suspect the dreaded NAPALM tests?) with a cunning plan of planting nits in every student’s (and teacher’s) hats to create an epidemic and total school closure, springing his Pop from the nursing home, suffering under duress from the heinous older sister and helping his mate Jack to get back his ‘cranky’ Dad  amongst other crazy stunts – plus much more!

These books have proved so very popular with readers – particularly those reluctant…

Erik Burnham, Dan Schoening ‘Ghostbusters: Get Real’ Review

Horror Novel Reviews

Written by: Matt Molgaard

I’ve always found Ghostbusters comics and graphic novels to be very interesting. They just about always feel the same. Repetitive stories that involve an array of ghosts, ghouls and elder gods. The guys go through hell (sometimes literally) before ultimately finding a way to right the wrongs of the universe. There is very little in the way of diversity when it comes to these books, and that’s the honest truth.

The other honest truth is, most of these books are a blast!

Ghostbusters: Get Real sees the gang deposited into another parallel universe, where another group of Ghostbusters work to combat the paranormal menaces that stalk their own city. We’ve seen this tactic – or at least a very similar tactic – used in previous GB books, but in this case it feels very natural, as Proteus, one of the nasty elder Gods is on the…
