Gorecast #70 - Deadly Women
Welcome back gorecasters on what is a beautiful Sunday in Ireland. Johnny Deadly here locked in his editing cave as daylight sickens me, back to give you the rundown on what’s coming up on tonight's show. 23:00gmt/18:00est www.facebook.com/TheGoreCast.
Women in Horror has been the topic floating around horror amino this week. So myself and Giz have had a rummage through our screeners sack and had a shuffle through our classics press and pulled out some fine examples of Deadly Women in Horror.
First up we have Monochrome Featuring BAFTA winner James Cosmo (TV’s Game of Thrones, Braveheart), the killer-thriller focuses on a disillusioned young woman who becomes a serial killer targeting wealthy land-owners, forcing a brilliant detective to use his unusual neurological condition to track her down.
Monochrome is a beautifully put together piece of cinema. The shot arrangements and fluidity transitioning from one scene to the next was astoundingly seamless. The overall tone of the film right down to the coldness of the colour grade was very reminiscent of the TV series Luther. Monochrome is full of real deeply thought out characters and how they interact with the world around them. All while there's this mist of darkness that develops and thickens as the movie progresses. Monochrome premieres on VOD and DVD this June from Gravitas Ventures.
Next up Emmaline Friederichs, Madeline Conway, and Carly Rae James Sauer star in the spookfest of the Summer The Nursery, available on VOD June 5 and on DVD August 7 from Uncork’d Entertainment.
When Ranae, a college student babysits for a family with a tragic history, she finds herself stalked by a sinister presence and haunted by ghosts from her own past. Soon, she and her friends must confront the angry, evil spirit hunting them down one-by-one on a deliberate march towards its ultimate prey.
The Nursery is yet another top-notch product put out by Uncork'd Entertainment. It delivers on everything a supernatural horror should. I have to add there was a refreshing lack of jump scares in this. With them only being used as a little teaser here and there or should I say as they are intended to be used ahem!. The characters in the film as well all display a level of functioning intelligence in a deadly situation that was great to see.
Now we have a little treat from our oldies press. When I think of deadly women in Horror one of the first characters that springs to mind is Julie Walker from Return Of The Living Dead 3. For those of you who somehow don't know Return of the Living Dead 3 is a 1993 American romantic horror film.
The film is the second sequel in the Return of the Living Dead film series but bears little resemblance to its predecessors, as it drops the comedy of those films and replaces it with a larger focus on horror, science fiction, and romantic themes. The Trioxin substance from previous films also carry over, but with different effects from previous films in the series.
Like the zombies in previous films of the series, these tend to run rather than walk or limp and are fixated on eating brains. These zombies seem to infect their victims by biting them whereas, in the two previous films, only exposure to Trioxin (in either its natural gas state or in water that had been exposed to Trioxin) could turn a corpse into a zombie.
That's it, my guys and ghouls, to join myself and The Giz on this romp down a street full of deadly women, evil spirits and... Well, sexy zombies join us www.facebook.com/TheGoreCast 23:00gmt/18:00est.
