    “RIDDICK” (Movie Review)

    If you recall, we first met Richard Riddick, an extreme survivalist Furyan with hyper sensitive eyes that aid him to see in the dark at long distances, in the modern cult favorite PITCH BLACK.

The remarkable adventure that followed would take director Marko Mäkilaakso around the world, through countless stops and stars, three title changes and eventually end as biggest film ever shot in Lithuania. FANGORIA spoke to Makilassko a few months later on the heels of the North American release to talk about the long journey that became a zombie epic.
