Johnny Deadly describes how The Gorecast began: “We get loads of screeners for movies and books for review and people with up and coming movies that want to get interviews done and there was so much coming in that we had started to develop a bit of a backlog. So myself and Greenie [Owner of Emerald Gore Society] had discussed doing a full show before and we had a few little mini shows on the site before called the Den Of Iniquity plus other little segments, so basically we said we’d give doing a full show a test run and see how it went as it would be a good way to get through all the backlog of interviews and reviews etc and The Gorecast was born.”
Presented by: Johnny Deadly, The Giz and Mr.Chains the show talks about all things horror. News, gaming and movie reviews, both indie and general release, boasting a wide variety of films you’ll never have seen before but are most certainly well worth watching.
