If you have a feature or news that you would like The B Club to cover, please contact us via one of our social media platforms or email TheBClub1@gmail.com
On the 19th August 2016, The B Club was formed, but not as we know it today......
Originally created as a Facebook Group, members discussed shared and reminisced on, well, all things B-Movie! DVD's where also shared in the group (known as BShare / #BShare). On the 10th September 2017, The B Club in it's current format with the website and all social media platforms was born (NEWS).
Sadly BShare is no more (maybe one day to return), however what The B Club has developed into is a source for Indie, Micro/Low Budget, and of course B-Movie News, Interviews, Competitions and HONEST, BRIEF, and more importantly SPOILER FREE Reviews. Promoting and supporting Indie Filmmakers with their remarkable features that don't normally reach the audience and viewing numbers they deserve, is the drive for The B Club.
Meet the team;
Shaun Jackson - Founder, Owner, Critic
An Englishman, born and bred in Yorkshire, now living in the West Midlands, Shaun's love of Indie Film and B-Movies came from the VHS boom that hit the U.K. in the late 80's and early 90's, where you could judge a new friend by the content and height of their video collection. Starting his career in the games industry as an animator and graphic designer, PR is where Shaun found his next love, working with a company promoting bands who were on tour supporting the "bigger" names. Founder of The B Club and with a passion to support, fund, feature in (a story for another day!) and promote Indie Film.

The Dark Side Of The Womb, while he was a film student at the University of Southern California. It was released in 2017 on Amazon Prime. He has since directed a second feature called Kiss My Ashes (also available on Prime), and current works as a film editor and sound designer.
Jane Alexandra Foster - Critic
A filmmaker from London U.K., Jane has always loved stories and has written since childhood, the more she has written the more she has fallen in love with Scifi, Fantasy and Thrillers, "Nothing gives so much scope to escape, or tell stories that have universal appeal and messages as these genres, I also love horror and action too, anything that shakes up the world we live in.". Her first feature, Gracie, shot on super 16 is a zero-budget magi-real tale, that takes place over one quirky night of suspense and drama. Having made three shorts, currently funding her second feature, Day Six, and had several writings commissioned, Jane's love for film is obvious, "I also live for the day when there’s actually a more sustainable film industry in the U.K.".

Martin Tranter - Critic
A full time film buff residing in the West Midlands, UK. A lifelong passion for film has been fuelled by receiving a book entitled “1001 Films To Watch Before You Die”, this has now become his challenge to complete! Lists are his weakness and he is also making his way through all the BFI film lists too. Married to a long suffering wife who tolerates his film geekiness as long as he gets the popcorn in! Although his comic and graphic novel nerdiness is a tad too far!
