Written and directed by Douglas McKeown, The Deadly Spawn had only one purpose… To feed on human flesh! Made for approximately $25,000.00 and released in 1983 The Deadly Spawn is an exercise in low-budget excess. Conceived by producers Ted Bohus and Tim Hildebrandt this 16mm cult classic emerged, drenched in blood, during the horror video [...]

The good folks over at Bloody Disgusting have posted the latest UK trailer for Apartment 1303 3D, a remake of the 2007 Japanese film of the same name, starring Mischa ‘The O.C.’ Barton, Rebecca De Mornay and Julianne ‘who the…?’ Michelle. They were hoping the UK trailer might be less confusing than the very bizarre [...]

Bad Kids Go To Hell is based on the cult graphic novel of the same name, and directed, and co-scripted, by the author of said graphic novel. It’s loud, brash, funny and sometimes charming but it tries to shock too often and, when all is said and done, just isn’t as clever as it would [...]

It’s been a long time since I’ve watched a balls-to-the-wall Japanese gorefest, so you can imagine my delight when I came across Tokyo Gore Police. In short, the clue was very much in the name. Cue a 110 minute bloodbath that at times had a hardcore bloodfest fan like myself flinching. Tokyo Gore Police is [...]

If, like me, you regularly watch the cooking competition/bitchfest that is Come Dine With Me, but often find yourself wishing the stakes were just a little bit higher, then Would You Rather might just be for you. The premise of the film is quite original; a group of strangers, from varying backgrounds, all of whom [...]

Gorepress‘ own Clive Barker fans Mark Pidgeon and James Simpson (with trusty voice recorder in hand) were lucky enough to have an exclusive sit down interview with some very important people before the last ever UK screening of Nightbreed: The Cabal Cut. In attendance was restoration director Russell Cherrington, actors Simon ‘Ohnaka’ Bamford, Hugh ‘Narcisse’ [...]

It is a truly rare thing to have the utterly bitter sweet task of writing a retrospective on someone who was, is, and forever will be an inspiration to me. For me, 7th May 2013 will always be a ‘where were you when you found out?’ moment. Ask the vast majority of people where they [...]

As we squint into the sunshine of oncoming spring, horror fans everywhere are slinking back into our homes and drawing the curtains closed, hissing at the dreaded brightness. But as ever, Gorepress has your back.

Written by Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex) and Katsuya Terada and directed by Hiroyuki Kitakubo (Akira), Blood: The Last Vampire follows the story of Saya, the last remaining ‘Original’ Vampire, on her mission to rid the world of Chiropterans; vampires of a sort who have become malformed hybrids, completely different to [...]

It baffles me that more people don’t mention Behind The Mask : The Rise Of Leslie Vernon in the same breath as movies like Scream and Cabin In The Woods, or even Wes Craven’s New Nightmare. In terms of breaking down genre conventions, it does so with a twinkle in its eye and a skip [...]

2013 will forever go down in History. Ok, so that might amount to little more than hyperbole, but I can guarantee the guys and gals at Gorepress will remember it for quite some time. Last year, inspired by the notion that just one Halloween a year just wasn’t enough, we decided to create our own [...]

It’s important to state before I really get to the meat and bones of Botched, that I’m a massive fan of Stephen Dorff, and so I had a little bias going into this film. I loved him Blade, Cecil B Demented, and his frankly brilliant portrayal of Cliff in SFW, so it saddens me to [...]

Let’s face it, crowdfunding is a bubble doomed to burst. It is a fad that has exponentially gained popularity, and is now being that annoying drunk who just won’t stop dancing awkwardly, looking for attention. Through its popularity, we have had A LOT of indie horrors come out of it, but most of them are unremarkable [...]

To be perfectly honest, I came to review this movie knowing next to nothing about it or anyone involved with it. I am unfamiliar with writer/director Thomas L. Phillips’ previous work, and so I had absolutely no idea what to expect. This being the case, I kept my research to an absolute minimum so as [...]

If you read the name Scott Stewart in the opening sequence of a film you shouldn’t watch it. I haven’t seen Legion, but I don’t think anyone has ever said anything good about the film. I tried to watch his film Priest, but I had to turn it off after 10 minutes. This guy is [...]

Though their debut, Dead Hooker In A Trunk, left a lot to be desired, the Soska sisters’ follow-up, American Mary, garnered serious buzz on the festival circuit, and its bad ass trailer left me almost weeping with joy. American Mary is a significant improvement on its predecessor. In fact, if this were their debut, the sisters would be [...]

As with his movies, Rob Zombies‘s musical output is heavily steeped in the visual aspect of the subject matter. Yes you could enjoy his new album ‘Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor‘ purely for the glam-metal-sing-a-long choruses and interesting industrial punk mash ups but why would you want to when you have a whole package presented to you, [...]
