IRONCLAD: BATTLE FOR BLOOD is the continuing story of honour [...]


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!

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.

It only feels like yesterday when we were sitting down to watch The Seasoning House after hearing Ross Noble talking about skull-f*cking an orphaned child… but Film4 Frightfest the 13th ended over a month ago and we’ve been fighting the withdrawal symptoms since… Luckily the fine people of Frightfest started the Halloween All-nighter, crashing into [...]

I love Re-animator. It’s not a secret. I even quite liked Bride of Re-animator and, despite it being clearly a bit awful, I absolutely adore Beyond Re-animator. I love the H.P. Lovecraft story from which it’s inspired by. I’m basically a huge Re-animator fan. So when I heard about Re-animator the Musical I was – [...]

Punching, kicking, elbows, aggression and a lot of machetes? Bring it on. Check it out below: THE RAID CLIP – FOUR ON [...]


Like the flesh-eating undead themselves, the zombie sub-genre will not die. Not with a head-shot or a cheeky bit of decapitation. Not with global economic recession or producers sighing heavily when they receive a new script called “Zombie Explosion 5”. Luckily most horror fans love zombie films and they especially love GOOD zombie films. Unfortunately [...]

No one likes a silent house. They’re always creepy. And this particular silent house looks bloody terrifying… SILENT HOUSE is a “re-imagining” of the Uruguayan film La Casa Muda (released as Silent House in the UK) and stars Elizabeth Olsen, the non-crap sister of Mary-Kate and Ashley and star of cult hit Martha Marcy May [...]


THE RAID – if you’ve not heard about it yet, you bloody well should have! Is it horror? Not really, but the fine folks at Frightfest debuted the UK Premiere at Frightfest Glasgow, so if it’s good enough for Frightfest, it’s good enough for Gorepress! So what is THE RAID? Sometimes I like to write [...]


We like Craig Fairbrass. He’s a proper British bloke, a damn good actor and bloody easy to talk to. Scullion did an interview with him in 2010 for the release of Devil’s Playground and he’s clearly a good guy (check it out here), one of our favourite interviewees. Having appeared in Devil’s Playground, Darklands, Proteus, [...]


Being a resident of this fair city, I’m always looking for exciting new genre-based activities to spend my money on and meet interesting people at.

The end of the world. How will it happen? Zombies? Nuclear war? A ridiculously big meteor? Bad weather? Rage? Whatever you’ve imagined (or been told by Hollywood) it’s probably nothing like what happens in PERFECT SENSE, the apocalyptic sci-fi fable starring Ewan McGregor and Eva Green, released on DVD on MONDAY. A new virus is [...]


When I think of Scotland and Horror, I think of two things – 1.) An American Werewolf in London (beware the moon!) 2.)
