It’s week 2 of our Trash Kings month, and that can only mean one thing; It’s time for Jamie and Sarah to tackle the colossus that is Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers. The cult favourite is given the full Gorecast treatment with the obligatory meandering review, divisive opinion, and a detailed look at director Fred Olen Ray. [...]

When the Reverend (Stuart Brennan) of a sleepy English village is attacked and turned into a vampire, he begins questioning his faith when he develops a taste for Human blood. Desperately seeking redemption, he decides to purge the area of sinners by feeding on the all local drug-dealers, pimps and scumbags. This is the plot. [...]

For the latest Gorementary, Sarah, Rosie and Phil take on 2004′s Creep with a small dose of trepidation and a heavy serving of booze. In this episode we chat about Christopher Smith‘s back catalogue, the logistics of falling asleep at a Tube station, and just how much we’d all like a dog called Oracle McWoofington. [...]

Originally released in the United States in 2007 it has somehow taken 5 years for Dark Mirror to swim across to Britain. And was it worth it? Surprisingly… yes. Dark Mirror is an interesting, intriguing and bizarre little horror film that will keep you guessing until the end (and maybe even afterwards). It suffers from [...]

Remains is coming to DVD on Monday 30th July and this is your chance to win a copy! Based on the IDW Publishing graphic novel written by Steve Niles (30 Days of Night) and illustrated by Kieron Dwyer, Remains is set in a chilling post-apocalyptic Reno, Nevada, and follows the survivors of a bizarre accident [...]

According to IMDB this film had a budget of $3.1 million dollars, which genuinely surprised me. Filmed like a student’s passion project, the credits are laced with Matthew Bolton’s name, who directs, writes, produces and even made the DVD menus (bless him). Having watched the film I expected a budget of less than £100,000… and [...]

There are few things that Jamie loves more in the world than coming home after a hard day slashing, and whacking in a sleazy, cheesy, low-budget, 90s flick. This is what he had in mind when he chose this months Trash Kings theme. First up on the docket is 80s Alien rip-off/time-capsule, Creepozoids. Directed by [...]

Steve Niles is the mind behind the graphic novels for 30 Days of Night, penned several issues of Spawn and wrote a twelve part Batman miniseries entitled Batman: Gotham After Midnight (amongst other things). Bizarrely he also “wrote” the videogame F.E.A.R.3. Anyone who knows the concept behind 30 Days of Night – vampires descend on [...]

You know you’re watching a Black and Blue Films production when: 1.) Billy Murray from the Injury Lawyers 4U advert turns up as a feature role or as a very important cameo. 2.) Alan Ford shows up and says ‘cunt’ a lot. 3.) The film features a hugely superfluous cameo from an aging film star [...]

It’s that time of the month again; the magical time where we examine the themes of the month’s movies and tie everything together with a Top 5 list. This month listen and enjoy as Jamie continues rearranging his list until the very last second, and Sarah continues apologising for hers. As usual, you’ve got all [...]

I don’t own Sky. I’m one of those Sky thieves, who get all excited when they discover someone who’s shelled out cash for Sky’s eight-hundred and fifty-five billion channels. I’ll surf the channels with momentary glee before realizing how ironically bereft of actual choice Sky’s standard package is. On visiting my fair family in South [...]

This is NOT Lesbian Vampire Killers. Or a sequel. Or a reboot. Horne and Corden are nowhere near this film, the vampires don’t leak semen and there isn’t a ‘hilarious’ cock-handled sword. In fact, the original title for Lesbian Vampire Warriors was Vampire Warriors. Perhaps the UK release was hoping to capitalize on the success [...]

The year is 1994 and the Spice Girls at the height of their power, Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead is released on VHS, Justin Bieber was being shat out of his mum and another psycho is murdering his entire family and filming it for kicks. All in all, a pretty crappy year. Skipping to [...]

After a short delay (sorry!), we’re back with our muchly anticipated review of 1985′s classic yoghurt-horror The Stuff, for the final flick in our Melt Month Extravaganza! We pad out the episode in the usual fashion, this week’s focus is writer/director/producer, Larry Cohen. He of such stellar output as Phone Booth, It’s Alive, and It’s [...]

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is surprisingly boring. A sprawling, ridiculous, disjointed blast of violence, black blood and axe-swinging madness. It certainly has its moments of awesomeness, but it never reaches the heights of entertainment the title and premise suggests and eventually becomes a repetitive Axe vs. Vampire slayathon. Wait for the DVD… to be on [...]

Developer: Frictional Games Platforms: Windows, Mac OSX, Linux Okay, I have a confession to make. Despite being a huge fan of horror films, horror games have always scared the living crap out of me. I’m not sure I’ve ever been able to play one right through to the end. There’s just something about them that [...]

Joe Dante is a personal hero of mine. No, he didn’t save my family from a burning building, but he provided my youth with some seriously awesome & inspirational work: Piranha, The Howling, Twilight Zone: The Movie, Gremlins 1 & 2, Innerspace, The ‘Burbs, Small Soldiers and – my favourite TV programme in my teens [...]

Hey folks! In place of this weeks regularly scheduled Gorecast we’ve got a treat for your ears in store; our commentary for 1987′s The Gate. Listen as we discuss such important topics as where Rosie knows Stephen Dorff from, why horror movies with child protagonists were such a thing of the 80′s, the discovery of [...]
