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.

To round out our theme, we take a lengthy look at Kathryn Bigelow’s Near Dark. A 1987 vampire movie with real bite and loads to explore both sub-textually and on its surface. Whether it is Near Dark’s depiction of women in the horror genre or its careful use of actors with a shaky grasp on the craft, I think we can all agree that there is plenty to talk about.

Also discussed in this catch-up episode is Wreck-It Ralph and voice acting quibbles, the wonder that is Half-Life 2, Sarah’s opinions of John Dies at the End (again), an in-depth discussion of Dredd and the world of 2000AD, along with plenty of other stuff.
