After yet another slight delay, we’re back with another exciting installment of Gorecast: Cell Block H. This week, we take a look at lacklustre trilogy filler, Beyond Re-Animator. Along with a loving glance at the career of jobbing horrormeister, Jeffrey Combs. As always, cakes with nail files baked into them to podcast@gorepress.com, and don’t forget [...]


For our second episode of the New Gorepress Gorementary, we decided to lend our considerable vocal talents to the mauling of 1983′s Sleepaway Camp. So, pack an overnight bag, get on your short shorts and listen as we take a trip back to the 80′s, rip off MST3K some more and give our opinions on [...]


Roslyn (Sara Foster) has got a new job in the soon-to-be condemned St John’s emergency hospital, packing and filing all patient records. Despite being an A&E hospital it also once housed a psychiatric unit (of course) and during her night shift ‘Roz’ starts to see things: ghosts, images etc… Coupled with her suspicion that her [...]


Frightfest is awesome. For those who don’t know, Frightfest is an annual horror film festival held in central London over the August bank holiday weekend and brings together some of the newest, freshest horror films to hordes of ravenous horror fans. Originally conceived in 2000 by Paul McEvoy, Ian Rattray and Alan Jones, it was [...]


War of the Dead takes two of film’s notorious whipping boys, combining Nazis and zombies to create a recipe for a giant evil pie. And is the result awesome?! Somehow no. War of the Dead fails miserably to capitalize on its premise, creating a lacklustre and shockingly dull experience instead of the insanely brilliant zombie-war [...]


Welcome to the Yankee Pedlar Inn, an aging American hotel that’s one more empty room away from permanent closure. The two carefree employees have heard about all the ghost stories linked to the hotel, but they want proof before the Pedlar is closed down and demolished. These amateur ghosthunters set about delving into the past [...]


So, last week your usual host Dangerous Jamie moved house and thus had no internet. After literally minutes of heated debate and thoughtful consideration, a new format podcast was formed! So, instead of the Gorepress Gorecast, Sarah branched out on her own and roped in two equally knowledgeable (make of that what you will) film [...]


Piggy starts off with a cheater’s guide to scriptwriting; a startlingly on-the-nose narration by the Danny Dyer-esque Joe (Martin Compston), who kicks off the film in a warehouse, watching the titular Piggy kicking the living shit out of someone, whilst Joe narrates… “That’s me. Joe. And that’s Piggy. Piggy was an avenger. He’d fix what [...]


The Raid is AWESOME. Despite lacking in character and plot, it manages to provide some of the best action that cinemas have been bludgeoned with in recent years. Fast, furious, bloody, insane, hilarious fun and incredibly violent, The Raid is a brutally fantastic action flick. Rama (Iko Uwais) is a rookie cop with a pregnant [...]


It’s the end of the world as we know it. In Hollywood, anyway. If Roland Emmerich isn’t busy blowing it to pieces with aliens and nature, then you’ll be damn sure that zombies will be biting it to death or horrible viruses will be creating a body-bag shortage. In recent months we’ve turned towards a [...]


Welcome to Horror Behind Bars month, kid. It’s time to ration your smokes and sharpen your shiv as we spend the next few weeks looking at what sort of things can go wrong in the big house. First on the docket is 1988′s Prison. Produced by Charles Band and directed by Renny Harlin, you would [...]


Mmm… violence… As you (should) know, THE RAID is coming to UK cinemas in 10 days and the kind people of Fetch Publicity have sent over a brutal clip from this insane actioner. Punching, kicking, elbows, aggression and a lot of machetes? Bring it on. Check it out below: THE RAID CLIP – FOUR ON [...]


Here is this month’s wrap up show, and it’s slightly lengthier than usual! We take some time to look at British horror through the ages, and present you with our Top 5 British Horror Film list, along with all the usual wrap up show trimmings including news, feedback, upcoming releases, and what we have been [...]


LAURA LAU is the writer, co-director and producer of Silent House, which is due to land in UK cinemas on Friday 4th May.
