Who likes identical twins? They’re up there in horror’s catalogue of disturbing alongside clowns, creepy porcelain dolls and the sound of an ice cream van at midnight. Imagine, then, that these twins are evil and happen to have a rare telekinetic power that means they can control everything you do. This is the central crux [...]

Dumb name, dumb characters, dumb film; Zombie Undead is incredibly dumb. As innovative & imaginative as tomato soup and just a thrilling, Zombie Undead is one long streak of bloody lumbering stupidness. Avoid avoid avoid. Zombie films… not exactly rare, are they? In the past decade we’ve had Land of the Dead, Diary of the [...]

Julia’s Eyes is a taut, fraught, psychological thriller with a touch of the supernatural and a few genuinely brutal moments. Blessed with some captivating central performances, it may feel overlong in places, but it is compelling throughout. There is no irony in saying you need to see this. Julia’s Eyes is superb. Julia’s estranged twin [...]

Science – it has done so much to improve the world. It relocated my shoulder nine times, it fixed my cracked skull twice and it’s saved lives every second of every day for decades. So why does cinema hate it so much? The Frankenstein Experiment is another example of “bad science” and it’s a cliché-packed [...]

Primal is better than expected. Well, better than I expected it to be anyway. It’s vicious, witty, fast paced and enjoyable throughout and deserves to be seen by a wider audience. The acting isn’t always great and there’s a section towards the end that feels as though it’s come directly from SyFy original movie, CGI [...]

We’ve had reason to be quite excited this week at Gorepress headquarters. The first reason being that a new trailer for upcoming movie Stake Land has been released and the second being that our very own Boston’s been quoted in it at the 1:02 mark. Quite the achievement for a little ol’ horror movie site [...]

Priest 3D – if you’re hoping for an explosive, 3D version of The Beautification of Pope John Paul II, with a 360 shot of a clergyman reading out a sermon accompanied by some operatic choir boy singing, then you’ll be gravely disappointed. Those expecting a massively dumb, cliché-ridden, absolutely absurd action flick filled with vampires, [...]

We will dissect three films over the coming [...]

Have you ever visited a scare attraction? Something like The London Bridge Experience or a carnival Ghost Train? The kind of place you walk slowly around, without any particular reason to be there, and scream when a face-painted actor jumps out of the darkness and shouts “boo” at you. Repeat for twenty minutes and leave, [...]

Certain films are “Ironing Films”. Ignoring any extreme ironers out there, most normal folk find themselves slogging through a mound of dull ironing on a Sunday, standing in front of whatever absolute crap programmers have decided to slap on Television; Songs of Praise, Homeward Bound 3, re-runs of Columbo and at least one film starring [...]

The old saying goes “when it rains it pours”, and in the case of Meteor Storm it’s raining space rocks, and they’re intent on ruining everyone’s day.

The original BloodRayne (2005) was one of Uwe Boll’s most successful and well received films which, although that means virtually nothing considering his canon of work, has meant two sequels have been made. The third in any horror film franchise is a difficult child. Often filmmakers attempt to inject the remotest sense of freshness into [...]
