UKHS_logo_with_txt_WEB My new self hosted film review site has just gone live .

After the success of this blog I decided to push ahead with my own site and as well as film reviews etc,  it will also have more new contributors and articles ranging across the board and trying to cover all bases in the horror genre. So everything from reviews to interviews to lifestyle will be covered.

This means that unfortunately this will be the last post for TheCorpseGrinder!!

I would like to thank everyone who has followed , read , replied , spread the word and helped me out over the past year. I hope you can all check out the new site and get involved , and if anyone wants to contribute please mail me at and there is also a submission page on the site so anyone can send me articles , reviews and the like very simply.

So I am afraid it is RIP TheCorpseGrinder and HELLO UKHorrorScene!!

Thank you all and may the gore be with you xx



New UK DVD and BluRay releases for week 6th May 2013


These are the DVD & BluRay releases for the UK for the week beginning Monday 6th May 2013.

Pick of the Week is a music DVD – Rainbow Live in Munich 1977 . This is the definitive Rainbow line-up with Blackmore , Dio (RIP) and Powell . Blackmore had to be smuggled out of Austria on the day of the gig due to a *police incident* and arrived just in time for the gig. This is a powerhouse performance of a true classic metal band !!

Please note that these are releases that fall under the horror genre umbrella that includes horror, exploitation, comic book characters , sci-fi, giallo , anime and music releases. It is not a full exhaustive list of everything just what I think fits this blog . Thanks!

Slayer is devastated to inform that their bandmate and brother, Jeff Hanneman, passed away at about 11AM this morning near his Southern California home. Hanneman was in an area hospital when he suffered liver failure. He is survived by his wife Kathy, his sister Kathy and his brothers Michael and Larry, and will be sorely missed.

Our Brother Jeff Hanneman, May He Rest In Peace (1964 – 2013)

On a personal note Slayer were my first love in the mid to late 1980’s , Hell Awaits & Reign in Blood will always live with me and changed my life . I met Jeff twice and once sat and drank with him & Tom for 2 hours, he was funny , gracious and very down to earth . RIP Jeff – I raise a glass & horns in your memory – shred in hell brother!!
