Monster Mash: A slick Ducati Monster 900 from NCT

The word ‘iconic’ gets thrown around a lot, but only a handful motorcycles truly deserve the title. We doubt that anyone would argue against bestowing it upon the mighty Ducati Monster though. Miguel Angel Galluzzi’s early-90s design still holds up today, and even modern Monsters haven’t strayed too far from the formula. This is a first generation Monster 900 that’s been given a tasteful makeover by the crew at Austria’s NCT Motorcycles. And it’s a real sleeper too, with a set of subtle cosme...

Honourable Mentions: the Curse of Valburga

Directed by Tomaž Gorkič and released in 2019, this is primarily a Slovenian slasher film but it does touch into the vampire genre in a few ways – with a fleeting visitation at the end. It is particularly B, with vaguely drawn character caricatures but, as a take your brain out B it holds together as a beer and buddies’ flick. Just to make it clear, the Swedish DVD cover (illustrated) does not reflect the film in any way. It starts with a Swedish black magician, Sven – played by black metal mus...
