Empires Of The Deep is a fantasy film financed by a Chinese billionaire, it’s centred around a love story between a man and a Mermaid and the war that rages around them, featuring former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko as the Mermaid.

The original Texas Chainsaw Massacre was released in 1974 and the remake in 2003, i happen to like them both, i would even go so far as to say that the remake was better than the 74′ version or maybe i just have a soft spot for Jessica Biel, no really, it was better, more atmosphere and better acting and overall it just had much better production values, of course better production values does not in itself make a better film, look at the remake of Planet Of The Apes or Peter Jackson’s remake of King Kong, both of them had superior visual effects work but they lacked the charm of the original films.
