Default Weekly Comp - Blood Glacier - 27th Jan 2014 - FINISHED

Hello Horror Fans,

We have an excellent prize up for grabs this week, that you'll love. In a similar vein to The Thing, this is a modern creature feature that's a must see. Forget the cheesy creature feature flicks, this one is gory, dark and scary!

And it can be all yours!

Roll up, roll up! Come one, come all and try your luck at the Cult Labs Weekly Competition. You have to be in it to win it!

Here's all the details...

Blood Glacier


On DVD from Monday 20th Jan. 2014

Splicing its way onto DVD this winter, comes the blood chilling creature feature – BLOOD GLACIER (aka The Station). With giant insects and crazed cross breeds galore, what’s not to get excited about in this perfect hybrid of horror and science gone wrong. Blood Glacier is the body horror we have been waiting for since John Carpenter’s The Thing.


Working in a remote outpost of the German Alps, technician Janek and a cohort of scientists are stunned to discover a bleeding blood glacier parked high up in the mountain range. As the gory infected berg melts the blood attracts the local wildlife only to transform them into hellish hybrids and monstrous mutations.

As this fusion of nightmarish creatures evolves in the life-giving mountain air, a second group including Janek’s ex-girlfriend advance towards the base in what will become a showdown of humans vs. nature upended into giant wood lice, beetle-foxes, crossbreed flying predators and much, much worse.

Imagine every creature that makes you shiver fused into one and meet your ultimate fears up at… Blood Glacier!

We love it because:

Having always wondered what happens when you cross a wasp with a crow, we were delighted to see Blood Glacier answer that very question with grotesque abandon. With flesh-eating ibexes and oversized wood lice aplenty, all inhabiting the surroundings of a blood-ridden iceberg (blood berg if you will), we love this Darwinian nightmare as much as the creative hybrid, blood-thirsty mutant creatures.

We always love a good horror that can both terrify and gross us out. Having gone down a treat at its recent premier and run at the FRIGHTFEST 2013 ALL-NIGHTER (which toured around the country), it is clear that audiences agree with us that Blood Glacier fits effortlessly into that mold as it provides an almost perfect balance of body shock, scares and suspense making this a pitch perfect horror hybrid in an age when it’s never been more possible to actually make such nightmares come true…

Hot Quotes:

‘A slice of horror reminiscent of John Carpenter's 'The Thing’" – Loaded

‘A smart, inventive and fun creature feature.’ - Jonathan Hatfull, SciFi Now

‘A good, gruesome eco-horror movie with properly monstrous monsters and many nasty turns’. - Kim Newman, Empire

“A creature feature with plenty of guts” - Horror Channel

“A cracking shocker with bucket loads of blood” - Horror Channel


To Win.....

Blood Glacier tells the terrifying tale of what will happen if a strange primordial ooze leaked out in the artic and turned the wildlife into messed-up, man-eating monsters. First the insects become contaminated and mutant, then it feeds and the DNA merges with the meal, creating a new - even worse - beast!

So, time to get creative. Creature creavite.

All you have to do for this compeitition is combine two creatures to form the most terrifying monster imaginable. It could be a mammal, a fish, a bird, a dinosaur, a character, a celebrity, a politician, a plant - whatever you like!

Give it a name and post your entry below.

There is no limit to the amount of times you enter, so have some fun and post to your heart's content!

Here's a quick example (you can do much better!)

The Justin Beibaboon

Justin Beiber + a pack of evil baboons! The HORROR!

Something liket hat. It can be silly or awesome - whichever you prefer.

At the end of the compeititon (next week), the three best creatures created will win themselves Blood Glacier on DVD!

Easy peasy.

Good luck everyone and enjoy!
