Lee Fields - Zed Events - Interview

CoverLee Fields was originally involved in creating the scare attraction Alien War, which opened in Glasgow in 1992 and later relocated to the Trocadero in London.

In 2012, he created Zed Events and opened the worlds first feature length zombie immersive experience which began a whole new niche within the scare industry.

Solo: A Star Wars Story - Movie review

CoverWhat I expected from Solo: A Star Wars Story was a bit of a fawning ode to the original trilogy with lots of sledgehammer subtle references and rehashing of iconic Harrison Ford dialogue. I knew I'd like it because... heck, it's Star Wars, but I genuinely feared that maybe this would be the one where the studio decided to listen to all the squeaky wheels complaining loudly how all the new movies have simply RUINED Star Wars; that after witnessing countless online tantrums about the abuse of Luke Skywalker's character in The Last Jedi they wouldn't dare present anything other than the most timid and prosaic origin story for everyone's favourite scoundrel. Thankfully I was only halfway right... [click here...]
