The Return of Godzilla (1984) - Toho's Heisei Comeback!! (June 2013)

It was Christmas, 1996, I had ordered 5 Godzilla titles on NTSC VHS. These tapes came from the tapes through a specialist in the states in which my uncle got for me. The films I had purchased were Gojira (1954), King Kong vs Godzilla (1962), Ghidrah, the Three-Headed Monster (1964), Godzilla vs Destroyah (1995) & The Return of Godzilla (1984). These were part of my Xmas presents with a new NTSC/PAL stereo video recorder. The Return of Godzilla (1984) was the film I wanted to see so badly and had the Dark Horse/Manga graphic novel in which I turned the pages scene-by-scene as I inserted the VHS tape into my new machine for the festive holiday!
Ninety-odd minutes later I remember thinking, this film is outdated and nothing like the comic book, but I was wrong! What I had just watched was the revival of Godzilla for the 80s/90s (A decade late, I know), but I had watched this film subconsciously growing up somewhere else.

Zombies... everywhere these days!! Wasteland (2013) is Coming!! (June 2013)

Me as a zombie on a final shoot for the indie horror film, Wasteland (2013) - coming very soon from Light Films, Ltd. Scott Miller (Shameer Madarbakus), a man carving his life out of a world torn apart by an 'infection' that has almost totally wiped out the human race. His days are spent finding water, food and avoiding the dangers that lurk outside while he waits for the return of Beth (played by Jessica Messenger), the love of his life.

WASTELAND, a story of man's journey as he fights to survive, to find hope, to find purpose within this new world. What is there left when all hope is gone? What kind of life is there? Will Scott give up or will he look for something bigger, will he look for a meaning, will he look for hope? Oh, and there are Zombies! Film also stars Mark Drake who has appeared on Game of Thrones (2013).
