Gorepress isn’t in the habit of whacking out marketing for horror films, because most of the posters we get sent are absolute shite. Slapped together photoshop nonsense that fails miserably to represent the film it’s apparently advertising. However, occasionally we get some pre-awareness stuff that is genuinely tasty. This is one of those times. Check [...]

Paul Campion is the Writer / Director / Producer of The Devil’s Rock, a brutal, bloody horror set on the Channel Islands during World War 2. He took some time out from the marketing trail to chat to Gorepress’s Boston Haverhill about the film. Honest, candid and good humoured, Paul gives an interesting insight into [...]

The Mercenary, starring action legend Danny Trejo, comes to DVD and Blu-Ray on 4 July and to mark its release we have 3 Blu-Rays to give away! In the deep jungles of South East Asia a blood thirsty mercenary Sebastian (Gary Daniels – The Expendables, Hunt to Kill) hunts for the thrill of the chase [...]

Kaboom is Gregg Araki’s latest feature length exploration of tawdry, irreverent, dystopian madness and it’s hugely disappointing. As a huge fan of Araki’s Teen Apocalypse Trilogy I allowed myself raised hopes only for them to be dashed by this tired, repetitive, technicolour mess. With 2005′s Mysterious Skin it felt very much like Araki had progressed [...]

The original Zombie Diaries was released to mixed-reception in 2006 and many thought it was dead and buried forever. But someone had forgotten to shoot it in the head and like a vicious, flesh-hungry beast it has risen from the carnage and come back for a sequel. For lovers of the original, you’ll be pleased [...]

Something strange is happening to Karen Barley… on Twitter… Karen (Gemma Giddings) is convinced by her sinister boss to take on an outdoors project in an ancient Bronze Age woods in Surrey. Her boyfriend Darren (Benjamin O’Mahony) is excited about the mysterious legend of the Hurst and can’t wait to find a hidden path he’s [...]

I am quickly becoming an expert on Larry Blamire. Having watched three of his other films this year, I have got used to his unique style, sense of humour and delightfully playful approach to filmmaking. For those unaware of Blamire’s work, they come in the form of such ridiculous titles as The Lost Skeleton of [...]

Cult auteur Larry Blamire returns with the DVD release of TRAIL OF THE SCREAMING FOREHEAD on 20 June and to mark the release we have 3 copies to give away! Terror strikes the sleepy burg of Longhead Bay when creeping alien foreheads begin attaching themselves to local townspeople and seizing their very souls — launching [...]

Vampires; they just won’t go away. Everyone’s taken a stab at the genre, from HBO to Kathryn Bigelow. They’ve been sexy, they’ve been psychotic, they’ve been dumb, they’ve been spoofed and they’ve been sparkly-faced effeminate wimpy douchebags. But have you got bored of them yet? Yes? Well, Stake Land will re-kindle your love of the [...]

Jonathan Sothcott is one of the producers behind the ever-expanding British production company Black & Blue Films. After interviewing him last, Gorepress got the chance to catch up with him once again to talk about his new project Strippers Vs. Werewolves and how far the company has come in such a short space of time. [...]

Remakes of 1980’s horror films; we’ve seen so many of them it’s genuinely becoming hard to know what’s original and what’s just a re-imagining of some obscure 30 year old horror flick. They’ve dug up Night of the Demons and The Hitcher and now they’ve resurrected that classic “Day” film Mother’s Day. Sometimes you dig [...]

On January 17, 2003 a 7.8 earthquake hit Japan. The event was caught on tape by two American filmmakers. But it wasn’t an Earthquake. It was a monster. A really big, tentacled monster, which murdered over 7000 people and was – somehow! – covered up by the Japanese government. Until now, that is! Presumably able [...]
