The review for THE SEASONING HOUSE (2012) is now up at http://www.goreblimeyblog.com/the-seasoning-house-2012.html

"Whatever life you knew is gone. There is nothing outside these walls to believe in any more."

It's 1996 in the Balkans, and the militia are capturing young women and forcing them into prostitution. They are repeatedly drugged, bound up and raped - and for a bit more money, the visiting soldiers can be as rough as they like with the women. When a deaf girl with a birthmark on her face is brought to the brothel, the man in charge sees her as damaged goods. He decides to employ her to prepare the women for their clients, as well as 'looking after him'. But then one day, the same soldiers who dragged her away after shooting her mother, turn up at the brothel.

Film number 5 in a week of Irish Horror Movie Reviews is the horror/comedy Stitches, starring stand-up comedian Ross Noble. See the full review here: http://www.goreblimeyblog.com/stitches-2012.html

Six years ago a jaded, unfunny and seedy clown was hired as a children's entertainer at young Tom's birthday party. But when the kids played a prank on him, it backfired and he died a sudden and gruesome death. But Tom is now a teenager and tonight he's holding a much wilder kind of party. And one guest has turned up who's certainly not on the list. Stitches the Clown has returned from the grave, and he's out for bloody revenge.

It's day 4 in a week of Irish Horror Movie reviews, and today it's all about Shrooms. Read the full review at http://www.goreblimeyblog.com/shrooms-2007.html

Some young Americans fly all the way to Ireland so they can pick magic mushrooms and basically get off their face. But beware, there are other funky fungi in the woods that look similar but have far more serious side effects. Now, what could possibly go wrong?
