Welcome To Brit-City 2143, Punks - You Are Now In The World Of Judge Dredd...


"It’s Brit‑Cit 2143, and it’s time to explore the world of 2000 AD’s futuristic London, in a brand‑new fantasy sci‑fi experience.

This two‑hour, immersive live‑action attraction, will test both brains and brawn as you and your fellow perps escape from the iso‑block and discover an ultra‑modern, subterranean London.

You will need ingenuity to outwit the iso‑cube, skill to make it out of the iso‑block, before navigating future Piccadilly Circus and its inhabitants, and onto the laser‑tag battle in the Cursed Earth, before the grand finale in the New Old Bailey.

Whether you’ve been banged up for organ‑legging, body‑sharking or just possession of Umpty Candy, it’s time to breakout and traverse the new world before you."
Rebellion, publishers of 2000AD, and Little Lion Entertainment, creators of the Crystal Maze Live experiences, have teamed-up to bring a Judge Dredd-themed escape room experience - Uprising - to Central London next year.

This offer teams of five the chance to live - and try to survive - in the futuristic world of Judge Dredd for a couple of hours.

Judge Dredd Uprising: The Live Experience is said to include immersive live theatre, five zones of mental and skill challenges, a Cursed Earth laser tag arena, and a variety of different storylines.

I must confess, I'm rather envious of my fit and able-bodied readers who'll be able to enjoy this - sounds like a fantastic adventure.

#RPG Tonight We Hope To Finish The Witch, One Way Or Another...

Baba Lysaga's "Creeping Hut"

The witch Baba Lysaga is proving to be a problem for Syr Edvard and his Merry Band Of Miscreants in Simon's 5e Dungeons & Dragons Ravenloft campaign.

The Tuesday Knights started fighting her two sessions ago, spent all of last session fighting her, and this evening will enter our third session of conflict.

I, as Syr Edvard, have a plan to bring this battle to its conclusion... but, sadly, I'm starting tonight's adventure unconscious, because of the battering I took last time from  one of the giant, animated, tree legs of the witch's mobile home.

This will be out seventh "virtual" meet-up - via the Zoom app - during lockdown.

Continuing Our Celebration Of The Breathtaking Works Of Ray Harryhausen...


We celebrate the centennial of stop motion pioneer Ray Harryhausen whose fantasy films ushered in a new era of special effects. From his early days on Mighty Joe Young to the birth of Dynamation and Sinbad to the literary adaptations and dinosaur movies to his mythological masterpieces Jason and the Argonauts and Clash of Titans.

DVD Of The Week: The Invisible Man (2020)


Two weeks after escaping the high-security home of her abusive, controlling, husband, Cecilla (Elisabeth Moss) learns he has killed himself.

However, as strange things start to happen in her life, she begins to suspect that the genius optics entrepreneur has actually faked his own death and really found a way to turn himself invisible!

This is something he had taunted her with in the past, saying then he could always keep an eye on her.

Has he done this? Or has he just got it into her head that he could do this? One final mind-game from beyond the grave...

Of course,  we, the audience, know that - given the title of the movie - Adrian Griffin (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) has somehow achieved his devious ambition, Cecilla's friends and family refuse to accept her wild claims and we see her grasp on sanity slowly slipping away.

Written and directed by horror veteran Leigh Whannell, Universal's new spin on The Invisible Man is the terrifying sci-fi horror that could relaunch its aborted "Dark Universe", where Tom Cruise's The Mummy failed so spectacularly.

Sure, there are a couple of moments that stretch credibility, like Cecilla's cop friend, James Lanier (Leverage's Aldis Hodge), being allowed to sit in on her interrogation when she is framed for murder, and Cecilla finding Adrian's mobile phone, complete with incriminating pictures, and not sharing it with anyone.

But overall, this is a near-perfect masterpiece of escalating tension, psychological horror, and the terrifying possibilities of weird science.

The film was off to a good start with its leads. Elisabeth Moss and Aldis Hodge are excellent in everything I've seen them do, but Whannell brings an attention to detail (barring minor hiccups mentioned above) that escalate the creep factor to near-breaking point.

He wisely avoids a lot of 'floating objects held by invisible person' gimmicks, and instead, generally goes, at least initially, for subtler, more disturbing, effects that you might not even catch first time round.

I'm sure I missed some things.

The other clever aspect of this iteration of the well-known HG Wells story is that it is told entirely from Cecilla's perspective; Griffin - the demented supervillain of the piece - is barely seen or heard until the final act.

As well as a straight forward horror movie, The Invisible Man also works as frightening portrait of an abusive relationship, highlighting the incredulity and disbelief that Cecilla's allegations about her "dead husband" are met with.

This carries right through to the final act, after a surprise twist that could be seen to put Cecilla in the clear actually makes her situation worse.

Engrossing and psychologically disturbing, The Invisible Man - released on disc in the UK today (Monday) - is an impressive, contemporary, take on a classic sci-fi story, and well worth two hours of your time.

THIS. IS. THE. APOCALYPSE!



A family fights for survival as a planet-killing comet races to Earth.

John Garrity (Gerard Butler), his estranged wife Allison (Morena Baccarin), and young son Nathan make a perilous journey to their only hope for sanctuary.

Amid terrifying news accounts of cities around the world being leveled by the comet’s fragments, the Garrity’s experience the best and worst in humanity while they battle the increasing panic and lawlessness surrounding them.

As the countdown to global apocalypse approaches zero, their incredible trek culminates in a desperate and last-minute flight to a possible safe haven.
That's a pretty impressive cast for what is, essentially, an Asylum-style disaster movie.

Celebrating The 100th Anniversary Of The Birth Of A Special Effects Titan...

Ray Harryhausen
29 June 1920 - 7 May 2013

I've mentioned on HeroPress many times over the years how the work of Ray Harryhausen was a the single biggest influence on my gaming when I started playing Dungeons & Dragons in the late 70s and his style of animation and storytelling has continued to inspire me to this day.

Of particular importance to me were Jason And The Argonauts and the Sinbad trilogy (especially The Eye Of The Tiger, which was my first exposure to the world of Sinbad and became a direct inspiration for a world-spanning, nautical campaign I ran for Gublin).

The skeleton fight in Jason And The Argonauts is always my role model for fights against animated skeletons (if not all fights!) while the Medusa in Clash Of The Titans is, of course, the definitive look for the snake-haired demon whenever she appears in one of my dungeons.

As I've said before I wouldn't be the person I am today - proud gamer and geek - without the cinematic masterpieces of Ray Harryhausen which informed and coloured my childhood.


Sinbad And The Eye Of The Tiger
has a bad rep in some quarters, but for me this is where it all started.

Back in the mid-70s, when Tonbridge still had a poky little cinema, my parents took me to see this and, literally, my life was never the same again.

In the same year that I discovered Dungeons & Dragons and saw Star Wars for the first time; 1977 was the making of me.

My very first Dungeons & Dragons character was called Sinbad (he killed - some say 'murdered' - a couple of dwarves in a drunken tavern brawl, changed his name to Bassin and fled to sea) and the first 'campaign' that Gublin and I played was ripped, whole-cloth, from Sinbad And The Eye Of The Tiger.

It was a make-it-up-as-you-go, seaborne adventure unfolding on an ever-extending roll of artpaper (or wallpaper, maybe), where we just drew in islands, land masses, reefs and ice barriers on a whim. There was, of course, a "top of the world" (through the ice barriers) where we, unsurprisingly, found a magical temple (as seen in the movie) aka the Shrine of the Four Elements.

Even though it was (teenaged son of mum's friend) Steve Grover's evocative recounting of the plots of Tolkien's Hobbit and Lord Of The Rings that led him to introduce me to D&D originally, it was that campaign with Gublin that cemented the connection between fantasy gaming and cinema (which remain my two great passions to this day) in my brain.

So, yes, Sinbad And The Eye Of The Tiger might have some shockingly poor green-screening, but it's a very special movie to me - and it's got Ray Harryhausen monsters in it!

Let's not forget the fact that it also stars John Wayne's son, Patrick (which was a big deal to a little kid like me at the time) and a scantily dressed Jane Seymour - which is always a big deal!

Seriously, she looks stunning in this film and the sight of her topless - even fleetingly - to an 11-year-old boy has been permanently etched into my brain (thank God for the invention of home video).

GAME MATERIAL (Swords & Wizadry)
:


Trog
(trogloditus giganticus)

The trogs are a peaceful, humanoid species bred as a slave race by the Arimaspi (the spellweaving inhabitants of the lost, northern land of Hyperborea, who also used giant sabre-toothed smilodons as we use guard dogs today). However, when the Arimaspi fell victim to their own hubris and were wiped out by the magical forces they believed they had ultimate control over, the trogs were left to thrive in the lush, green valleys the Arimaspi had magically created at the North Pole.

Standing about 10 or 11 feet tall, the horn-headed trog can look quite intimidating. However, they are easily spooked and are afraid of the unknown. When one discovers newcomers in its land, it will try to warn them off - or warn them of the dangers ahead - but as it has no concept of language, its gestures and weapon waving may easily be misconstrued.

Trogs are very gentle towards females and would never attack a woman - unless she had physically wounded him in some way first - and are easily befriended with the right approach.

#ENC: 1d3
Size: Large
HD: 4+1
AC: 5 [14]
Attack: Weapon (usually a giant club for 1d10 +3, or any other oversized weapon for +3 damage). Its head-horn can only be used against other large (or bigger) sized creatures, for 1d6+3 damage.
Move: 10
Alignment: Lawful
CL/XP: 4/120
Saving Throw: 13


Summoned Ghouls

Summoned Ghouls are nightmare creatures conjured up by a wizard that knows the correct spell. They will appear out of the nearest large, man-made fire - be it a fireplace or a camp fire - and, although only five foot tall, their appearance strikes terror into the hearts of those who see them.

They look like demonic skeletons wrapped tightly in an inhuman skin, but with giant bug-like eyes. Two-thirds will arrive already armed (usually with swords or axes), while the rest scavenge what they can find from the surrounding area.

The ghouls live to kill, communicate by chittering between themselves and will only obey the mental commands of their summoner.

#ENC: 1d4+1
Size: Man-sized (5')
HD: 3
AC: 7 [12]
Saving Throw: 14
Attack: by weapon (long sword/battleaxe 1d8+1)
Move: 12
Alignment: Chaotic
Special:
  • Damage Resistance - a summoned ghoul can only be harmed by any single attack that does enough damage to kill it (e.g. a ghoul with 12 hit points can only be killed by a single attack that does 12 or more points of damage). Anything less than that amount, even though the weapon may pierce or batter the ghoul, has no effect.
  • Spell Immunity - summoned ghouls are totally resistant to fire-based attacks.
  • Surprising Appearance - when summoned ghouls first appear, any humanoids within sight (except the summoner and his allies) must save versus magic or be unable to act for a single round.
CL/XP: 5/240


Giant Walrus

Found in the coldest parts of the world, the giant walrus is very territorial and will attack any creatures it believes are invading its turf. However, much of its attack is bluster and should a walrus suffer a loss of over a third of its initial hit points, it will attempt to escape back into the sea. Its ivory tusks are each worth (1d6x100) gold pieces.

It is also rather slow and plodding outside of the water and so suffers a -1 penalty on Initiative rolls.

#ENC: 1- 2
Size: Giant (25ft long, about 15ft tall at head)
HD: 10
AC: 5 [14]
Attacks: Tusks - usually for batting aside prey, 1d0+3 damage plus STR check on 5d6 vs STR+LVL, for be knocked (four + 1d6) feet. Sometimes tusks are used for stabbing (at -2 to hit, but 1d12+3 damage). The walrus can also trample fallen prey for 1d10+3 damage.
Movement: 6/12 (swimming)
Alignment
: Neutral
Special: Immunity to cold-based attacks.
CL/XP: 10/1,400

Minaton

A unique fusion of black magic and technology, brought to life by the dark arts but kept moving with a golden, clockwork heart (worth 1,000gp if it can be salvaged somehow).

Created in the shape of a minotaur (a giant, muscular man with the head of a bull), the minaton is an eight foot tall animated bronze statue that is relentless, untiring and totally loyal to its creator. Gifted with superhuman strength, it is incapable of independent thought or any form of speech/communication.

It is only capable of acting when given direct orders (and only by its creator), otherwise it will stand totally motionless and not react to any outside interference.

#ENC: Unique
Size: Large  (8ft tall)
HD: 10 (50 HP)
AC: 3 [16]
Attacks: Weapon (any oversized weapon for +4 damage, usually a giant spear for 1d10 +4 damage)
Saving Throw: 5
Movement: 8
Alignment: -
Special:
  • Damage Immunity: the minaton is immune to non-magical weapon attacks, as well as spells that affect the mind or frailties of the human body (such as charm, paralysis, poison etc), but takes full damage, as normal, from aggressive spells such as fireball, lightning bolt etc
CL/XP: 12/2,000

TREASURE TROVE:

Potion of Transformation
: a powerful draught found in a small, locket-sized vial (with 1d8+1 sips remaining), that can transform the drinker into any small (non-monstrous) animal - of the drinker's choosing - until the animal takes a second sip of the potion.

Out of its container, the potion can evaporate reasonably quickly and so if there isn't enough left to trigger a reversion to human form, it is possible for the drinker to be subjected to a partial restoration (ie. they will revert to human form, but some part of them will remain in the shape of part of the creature they were - although scaled up to human size).

However, the potion can also be used as an ingredient in a transformation spell (using two sips worth), which will then transform its victim permanently into a smaller-then-human-sized creature (although not a bird or insect).

The transformee will retain his human intelligence (but obviously not the power of speech) for 1d4 months, then gradually begin to revert to the creature's true animal nature - taking a further 2d4 weeks until the transformation is complete (and irreversible).

If a sip of the potion is fed to an ordinary animal, bird, insect etc it will transform into a monstrous-sized version of its original form and will no doubt attack anything within sight.


As we celebrate 100th anniversary of Ray Harryhausen's birth, we mustn't forget The Ray & Diana Harryhausen Foundation's informative and entertaining podcast - The Ray Harryhausen Podcast.

Featuring a mixture of archival interviews with Ray, as well as specially recorded commentary on his movies, recorded in the years just before his death in 2013, the podcasts are hosted by Collections Manager Connor Heaney and Foundation Trustee John Walsh, discussing Ray's work, his films, and items in the Foundation's collection of more than 50,000 pieces of Ray's art, monster models, props etc

The podcasts come out, roughly, monthly and episodes range in length from around 20 minutes up to an hour (for the current Top Ten of Ray's creations, as voted for by this fans).

So, if you're a fan of Ray's work (and who isn't?) you really need to subscribe to this podcast.

We're Going To Need A Bigger Wall!


The trailers - for the forthcoming monster flick Land Shark (aka Luxingsha) - may be in Chinese, but you don't need to understand the language to grok the story they're trying to sell.
The boss of a pharmaceutical company has invested in the establishment of a biopharmaceutical research laboratory located deep in the jungle.

By modifying the shark gene to develop a new type of anti-cancer drug, a huge crisis also came quietly: due to the change of the shark’s gene, the gene mutation was fierce and showed the characteristics of other organisms.
It's almost as though The Asylum has opened a new branch in China.

All credit to Bloody Disgusting for highlighting this marvellous movie.

Artist Appreciation: Albert Kallis


Albert Kallis is the genius who created these glorious schlock horror movie posters for the ever-inventive Roger Corman and his compadres.

You can see a broader selection of his work here at CineMaterial, and learn more about his background via the brilliant Design You Trust website.

Sadly, the days when film posters on their own had the power to draw you into a cinema are long gone, and creativity of this calibre is a rarity in modern cinema promotions, when they've probably already hooked you in with trailers and online content.

Also, I miss the days - not that I'm old enough to remember these first time round - when movie titles sounded like they'd been randomly generated by drawing half-a-dozen assorted words out of a hat.

I wonder how often the poster and/or name came first and the film-makers then had to write a script to merit its use.
