STAYING IN… 

Screen Shot 2013-10-29 at 11.16.28Entertaining in a big way, or just having a few friends over to watch scary movies (or the latest episode of True Blood!), this is the only spell book you’ll need this Halloween.  Featuring forty-five themed recipes inspired by the HBO® original series, and geared toward the ravenous fans who love to gather for weekly watch parties, True Blood Drinks & Bites is a spooky steal at just £11.99 from the HBO Store. From often-ordered refreshments at Merlotte’s and Fangtasia to the Fortenberrys’ family recipes for the best finger foods around, here are mixed drinks for teetotalers and boozehounds alike plus bites for all appetites.

Sip and nibble as the drama goes down onscreen, or quench your cravings in between episodes—how about Scorn Fritters and Cheese Stakes washed down with an ice-cold Spirit Lifter? Or a Maenad a Trois paired with Skinwalkers and Vamp Repellent? It’s a bayou buffet no Trubie can resist and you’ll be a Southern spirit in no time!

Some of our tried and tested favourites have to be Vamp Repellent (tasty and very necessary on a night like Halloween! – Pg 79) and Werewolf Biscuits Pg 105 (you’ll be howling with joy once you’ve tried them!)

Here’s another tantalising taster for you to try….

Every Halloween is undoubtedly blood thirsty and this year is no exception. But stay away from the blood and try out a Dracula’s Kiss instead; a mixture of Eristoff vodka, Chambord, and cranberry juice.

Vampire Elixir

Elixir, Greek for sweet-flavoured liquid that heals wounds, is a perfect drink to accompany anyone who’s been hanging out with vampires. Eristoff vodka mixed with apricot brandy, lime juice, pomegranate juice- this cocktail certainly has healing powers.

Monsters Ink

This Monsters Ink cocktail contains Bacardi Superior, Archers, Monster Energy and a healthy drop of Eristoff Black vodka that dribbles through the cocktail like an open wound.

Witches Brew

A frightfully daring brew of both Eristoff and Eristoff Black vodka mixed with Blue Curacao and apple juice, all topped off with extra sour sweets to make you cackle!Screen Shot 2013-10-29 at 11.45.50

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!

Street Fighter is back! And it’s hitting your TV screens! #gaming #liveaction #film

Screen Shot 2013-07-25 at 14.07.41

If you’re fans of the old school Street Fighter… remember picking your player and fighting for hours on your console to find the supreme champion, then you are going to LOVE this news!

Bringing us back to the magic of gaming’s yesteryear, Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist has just been announced at the San Diego Comic-Con.

Check out in this video more about this live action series:

What’s it going to be about? 

‘Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist’, the thrilling and multi layered series will take the audience back to the formative years of the iconic characters, Ryu and Ken, as they live a traditional warrior’s life in secluded Japan. The boys are, unknowingly, the last practitioners of the ancient fighting style known as ‘Ansatsuken’ (Assassin’s Fist). The series follows them as they learn about the mysterious past of their Master, Gouken, and the tragic and dark legacy of the Ansatsuken style. Can their destiny be changed…or will history repeat itself?

Screen Shot 2013-07-25 at 14.11.08This series is being tipped to redefine what audiences can expect from live-action video game adaptations. The bi-lingual script penned by Joey Ansah and Christian Howard has attracted some of the top rising and veteran Japanese actors.

Veteran actor Hal Yamanouchi, co-star of the upcoming ‘The Wolverine’, and Mark Killeen, from ‘Game of Thrones’, have recently been added to the cast line up. Filming will complete by the end of August for a proposed early 2014 release.

Screen Shot 2013-07-25 at 14.11.30The series is being produced by Jacqueline Quella, whose previous projects include ‘Romanzo Criminale’ (Crime Novel); Academy Award nominated ‘Don’t Tell’; and Tobe Hooper’s ‘The Toolbox Murders’.

The series will be directed by Joey Ansah who, as ‘Desh’, was part of one of the most celebrated movie fight scenes of all time, in ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’, and was recently at the heart of the action in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’, ‘The Numbers Station’ with John Cusack, and co-star and action director of Lionsgate’s upcoming ‘Greenstreet Underground: Hooligans’.
