GOREZONE is 24 years old today!
Twenty four years ago, the Internet was totally different. There was no Facebook, no Instagram, no Twitter, no Smartphones... actually most people had never "surfed" the world wide web. Back in June 1998, I decided to start GOREZONE because of the lack of coverage for the horror genre on the Internet. There was tons of sites dedicated to STAR WARS and STAR TREK, yet apart from a few good horror sites such as HorrorMovies.com and HouseofHorrors.com, the net was leaving me wanting for more. GOREZONE was born as the first web site dedicated to daily horror news. 24 years later GOREZONE is still alive, independant and true to its original concept. Never sold out. Never gave up.
Twenty four years is a long time. Not surprisingly I remember the first day, working on my computer, creating the images in Photoshop and layout in Pagemill. I'd love to thank all the readers and everyone who helped the site through all these years! It means a lot to me. Thank you for believing in GOREZONE and making it the #1 source for bloody daily horror news!

** THE BAD SEED RETURNS: In the wake of the recent elementary school shooting in Texas, Lifetime has reportedly delayed the release of the horror film THE BAD SEED RETURNS which was to premiere on the network on Monday May 30th.
** Texas-born 15-year-old Mckenna Grace leads the project and tweeted on Wednesday that she currently doesn't feel comfortable promoting the film due to events. The movie serves as a sequel to the Rob Lowe-directed 2018 Lifetime movie which itself was a reimagining of the cult 1956 psychological horror film based on William March's novel.
That 2018 film followed Emma (Grace) who causes the death of her father (Lowe). In the follow-up she is now a teenager living a normal life with her aunt, but her dark, sinister behaviors can only be hidden for so long. Grace says of the sequel's delay in a Twitter statement:
"In the wake of the recent tragedy in my home state of Texas, we have decided to delay the release of THE BAD SEED RETURNS. Lifetime and everyone involved are in agreement. I don't feel comfortable promoting the film this week and we don't think Monday is the right time to release it. I was in first grade when Sandy Hook happened... and it feels like not much has changed since then. (thanks to DarkHorizons.com)
