Cold in July is the fourth feature from writer / director Jim Mickle and writer Nick Damici, having previously brought us Zombie Virus on Mulberry Street, Stake Land and We Are What We Are. Much like their previous work, this is very different from what came before it – this time a dark, dramatic thriller. [...]

This time around, Phil and Sarah take the Gorepress train to South Korea to chat about the hugely successful monster flick The Host. They muster through hayfever, the misunderstanding of dubstep, and general confusion to pick apart the socio-political commentary and get critical of the CGI effects.

The second half of the show is [...]
