Sarah, Phil and Ben leave their fate in the proverbial hands of an online answer generator that chooses a film for them to view and review, in this very first episode of a brand new Gorecast spin-off show. This time the hands of fate land on not-so-spooky Cloris Leachman/Tara Reid vehicle The Fields. Will they [...]

After getting our hot air balloon caught on a pylon, we’re finally in India. A few days later than scheduled but hey, at least we made it! This week’s slice off of the World of Horror comes from The Ramsay Brothers, Bollywood’s first family of horror. Purana Mandir was made in 1984 and terrified an entire [...]

Written by: Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra First published: 2002 What would you do if you were the last man on the planet? It’s one of those questions men have talked about at length, sat around a pub table, at home whilst gaming, at the dinner table, well, anywhere really. What would you actually [...]

Three years ago (almost to the day!), I was surprised by a little modern slasher called The Collector. I had expected another Saw-inflected torture flick with little to offer. What I actually got was a fun, Home Alone-with-horror flick with some great tent-pole moments and interesting murder gizmos. In that review, I was aware of [...]

The Lords of Salem is a bit of a mess. Containing a solid central idea that could’ve made for a fascinating, terrifying film, writer / director Rob Zombie delivers a one-note journey into a witchery apocalypse with no sense of direction. There are some brilliant elements, images and ideas here, but it’s an undisciplined mess [...]

It was with much trepidation that I entered this retread of The Evil Dead, a film so close to my heart that I have the protagonist’s face and chainsaw permanently etched into my left arm. The Evil Dead was one of the properties primed for remaking as soon as the trend took hold. Fans eased [...]

The tone of 6 Plots is really set in stone from the very beginning, with it’s opening line consisting of a question that will come back to haunt the viewer time and time again. Just what is the collective noun for a group of bitches? All kidding aside, this movie was my third journey into [...]

I’ve always been of the opinion that Evil Dead II is the best of Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead trilogy, so when I was given the chance to review it in Stunning High Definition™ on blu-ray, I jumped at the chance. The Film A sequel to 1981’s Evil Dead, Evil Dead II (known in some circles [...]

After spending much time battling SkyNet over two different providers, we’re back. Sure we’re bloody and the T1000 killed loads of teenage boys, but we’re back to bring you more horror movie waffle. This was meant to be an apology for not getting the episode to you last week. It sort of works, right? Anyway, [...]

Occasionally a meeting of such incomprehensibly brilliant minds occurs that lesser mortals quake at very the thought of it. Worlds collide, lives are changed and the universe is a better place afterwards. This, is not one of those occasions. This was less a meeting of minds and more of a clumsy bumping of half-baked ideas. Nevertheless, something exciting came of [...]

As the clock ticks onto 9pm on Monday 15th April, Bloody Cuts’ short ‘Don’t Move’ will be unleashed online. You have been warned. Set on one fateful night, six friends gather for their monthly ‘games night’… and accidentally unleash a demonic force that might tear them – and their friendships – to pieces. Created on [...]

Debuts are difficult. Especially ones written, directed, edited and cinematographized by one person. One presumably impassioned, proactive and film-loving person. Debuts are difficult… especially when they turn out to be a little bit rubbish. I Didn’t Come Here to Die is the feature debut of Bradley Scott Sullivan and although it has merit it is [...]

Regular Gorepress readers may have noticed my propensity for simple, ghosty horror movies, and 1408, an adaptation of a Stephen King short story, is no exception. It follows Mike Enslin (John Cusack), a jaded author who has built a living on documenting alleged haunted buildings with little success. Increasingly cynical and pessimistic, when he receives [...]

After yet another hiatus, join Dangerous Jamie and Exasperated Sarah for the triumphant return of the Gorepress Gorecast as we pick up where we left off at Female Directors Month as part of our Women In Horror Recognition Month coverage. Sure, WIH Month is long gone but the spirit lives on in all of us. [...]
