The classic story of a delusional, maybe-psychopath, best captured in American Psycho, is given a sort of British re-telling in this stylish, disturbing and very entertaining study, of a man addicted to drinking, smoking, fucking and, er, killing. Antihero David Pettigrew is a disillusioned sales agent, who is hopelessly in love with his happily married [...]

For most normal people, the idea of hanging from large hooks, embedded into their skin, doesn’t even bear thinking about, but for filmmaker Kate Shenton, the world of suspension, and those who inhabit it, is the perfect premise for a documentary – just don’t expect to learn anything about the practice, or the enthusiasts, or [...]

Here at Gorepress, we’ve been fans of Noel Mellor’s Adventures In VHS since its launch and given that two of our founding members are from good old Manchester, we naturally got a bit excited upon hearing about this episode! Here’s the skinny, in Noel’s own words. In his short life, Cliff Twemlow created thousands of [...]

Orc Wars is one man’s (Kohl Glass to be exact) desire to make a Lord of the Rings style film, on a shoestring budget, with a simple twist: guns. In this endeavour, he is an unmitigated failure. What is presented to us is 100 minutes of terrible storytelling, matched only by the casting. Not 5 [...]

For horror fanatics, Halloween is more than just a holiday. It’s the one night a year that is truly ours, when we can celebrate everything that’s weird, wonderful and dark, out in the open, without fear of reproach from those who don’t normally get the attraction. Most have felt a certain affinity for Halloween since [...]

Sodium Party is the feature debut of Irish filmmaker Micahel McCudden. Written after the birth of his daughter with a view to sharing his unique vision of the world with her, it marries a bleak outlook with eldritch melodrama to create a captivating non-linear thriller. It shot in 2010, so may not be entirely appropriate [...]

Álex Ulloa (Hugo Silva) is having an affair with one of his students. Foolishly falling in love, he’s secretly pleased when his wife Mayka (Belén Rueda) dies of a heart after returning from a trip abroad. Pleased… or responsible? This question arises when Mayka’s body goes missing from the morgue and – however it disappeared [...]

To mark the recent release of I Spit on Your Grave 2, we’ve got three copies on DVD to give away! The highly anticipated horror sequel stars promising British newcomer Jemma Dallender, who takes on the lead role, following in the footsteps of Camille Keaton, star of the 1978 original, and Sarah Butler in I [...]

Boo! Chomp! The Ghost Shark is coming to get us and he is PISSED! If there was ever any doubt that the latest project, from the mad scientists over at SyFy, featured the recently-reincarnated spirit of a viciously murdered Great White, hell-bent on revenge, on the town who wronged him, then worry not, because the [...]

In 2010 I Spit on Your Grave, the remake of the 1978 classic movie of the same name was released to high praise. It took rape and revenge to the next level, with a highly graphic and visceral rape scene, matched only in grim, stomach churning detail by the brutal revenge murders that followed. Now, [...]

Russia. World War II. A group of Russian soldiers respond to a distress call near a small, abandoned church. Taking their (surprisingly high-tech) video-camera along, the small squad head into the church expecting enemy resistance, but find a bizarre experimental laboratory with a strange woman strapped to wires and pistons. The group quickly realize something [...]
