Over the last eighteen months, the Film Gutter review series, along with the Gutter Talk interviews have built up a cult following here at Ginger Nuts of Horror. After offering the most bizarre, brutal, brilliant and breathtaking of extreme horror, Film Gutter launched the e-book collection of its 2015 reviews in January.
But there's more to come as, after a great response to the e-book version, Film Gutter will have a paperback released in May. Not only that, Film Gutter Volume 1 will celebrate its physical release with a very special event at Derby Film Festival this May, and more particularly as part of the final Fantastique weekend.
At 10pm on Saturday 7th May, the Volume 1 paperback will be launched with a talk from writer Alex Davis on 'what makes a film disturbing?' With plenty of factors and fine examples to choose from, expect an insight into some of the goriest, most violent and most twisted cinema out there. The book launch will be followed by the UK PREMIERE of the second installment of the American Guinea Pig series, Bloodshock. The movie does not come on general release until much later this year, so don't miss what might be the only chance to see it on the big screen here in the UK!
Directed by Marcus Koch (Fell, Rot, 100 Tears) and written by extreme horror legend Stephen Biro (Unearthed Films), Bloodshock follows on from last year's Bouquet of Guts and Gore with a black and white assault on the senses that will keep viewers pinned to their seats. A full-on psychological horror, starring Dan Ellis (Gutterballs), this epic of torture, paranoia and gore is bound to satisfy anyone who enjoys their horror from the very darkest edges.
Fancy being there? Well, readers of Film Gutter will have the chance to be – simply email Alex at email@example.com if you'd be interested in attending. There are no tickets available on the night or to the general public, so the only way to be there is to get in touch and have your name added to our attendee list!
Bloodshock contains graphic scenes of torture and scenes that will disturb, so viewer discretion is highly advised! With that said, if you think you can handle it, just get in touch and join us for the very first Film Gutter event and a screening like no other!!
