Brief updates, artwork and splatter

It’s been a little while since we blogged so I thought I’d bring everyone up to date with what’s been going on in the World of Gorepress.

For the last week we’ve been plagued by illness and internet issues. Those of you that know me, might say ‘But Sarah! That’s surely a hyperbolic statement if ever I heard one’ and darn it, you’d be right. The truth of the matter is that the ‘illness’ boils down to the fact that I’ve been burning the candle at both ends recently and this has resulted in a lack of updates on my part. We’ve got plenty of new content on the way and as soon as things are back to normal, we’ll be as prolific as ever. The ‘internet issues’ bit is also a slight exaggeration, which relates to the Gorepress Gorecast. Yesterday should have seen Episode 3 going live but due to the fact that it was Bank Holiday weekend and we hadn’t factored in the shower of work-shy bums that would be off all weekend, raping the internet, we were unable to record. Take two is tomorrow and I don’t foresee any problems so if all goes to plan it’ll be available for your listening pleasure tomorrow evening.

 Matte Black Paintings

In other news, our very own web designer and graphics expert Matt has taken to trying his hand at some pop-art and some rather more realistic paintings, a few of which are currently for sale in his Etsy store. You can take a look at what he has to offer by clicking this link or going to www.etsy.com/shop/matteblack. He welcomes a challenge and is available for all kinds of commissions so if you feel that your wall is lacking some original, horror inspired artwork then pop an email over to mail@gorepress and I’ll make sure he gets it.

Although it might not look like much, we’ve been busy as ever trying to secure bigger and better things for you guys to peruse on the site. There are a couple more interviews in the works at the moment, as well as previews of some exciting looking movies before their release dates, over the next few months. As yet I’m keeping tight lipped on the details but I’m sure Jamie will have more to say about it all in his next blog.

Another thing we’ve been a little lax with lately is reciprocal links and that’s entirely my fault! If you’re a website that’s linked to us then please feel free to give me a metaphorical kick up the caboose and I’ll arrange for your link to go on Gorepress. If we haven’t previously discussed reciprocal links but you’d like to talk about it then please send an email to sarah@gorepress.com and I’ll see what I can do.

 Herschell Gordon Lewis

That’s it for now, my Herschell Gordon Lewis box-set has literally just dropped through my letterbox (that’s not a euphemism) so I’ll be spending the remainder of my day with the Godfather of Gore. As always, feedback is welcomed and please don’t forget to include your comments in the relevant boxes, on any of our reviews and features, whether you disagree, wholeheartedly agree or want to take a cheese grater to our faces for bad-mouthing your favourite movie. We want to hear it all.

Take it easy!

-Sarah.

    Didn’t think much of “The Visitation!! The book by Frank Peretti that I read yonks ago was a much more gripping story but the christian content wouldn’t be to everyone’s liking. In reducing that the story has lost much of it’s meaning…..and actually is rather weak.
