Alice, Sweet Alice - If You Survive This Night... Nothing Will Scare You Again.

Alice, Sweet Alice is a nice little chunk of psychological grey-matter shafting slasherism from 1976 America, although it was originally released as Communion it was re-released as Alice, Sweet Alice in 1978 and then again as Holy Terror in 1981. One of the main reasons that this movie has the ability to fuck with the head is due to the convincing ... Click to read more "Alice, Sweet Alice AKA Communion"

Bloodsucking Freaks: Join The Fun!... Human Dart Boards... "Home Style Brain Surgery"... Dental Hijinks!

The title conjures up images of a vampire movie but, as with any Troma flick, you rarely get what you expect. Bloodsucking Freaks (aka The Incredible Torture Show) is not a trademark Troma slapstick comedy horror but an extremely depraved and embroidered exploitation flick that is not without it's very darkly humorous charms. As expected the movie ... Click to read more "Bloodsucking Freaks"

Island of Death - The lucky ones simply got their brains blown out.

Nico Mastorakis is the first to admit that his motivation for making Island of Death was money. This highlights that maybe other directors have the same motivation and just like to grease the wheels of the marketing machine with bullshit as Island of Death still stands out as one of the more notable entries on the Video Nasty list. His inspiration ... Click to read more "Island of Death"

Shogun's Sadism a.k.a. The Joy of Torture 2: Oxen Split Torturing (Tokugawa onna keibatsu-emaki: Ushi-zaki no kei)

The popularity of so many modern Japanese horror movies over the last ten years has no doubt generally piqued Western curiosity about the country's cinematic legacy: its more recent gory movies didn't emerge out of a vacuum, that's for sure, and it's getting easier to track down earlier works which show us this much, such as Shogun's Sadism (The Jo...

Snuff - The picture they said could NEVER be shown

A common tactic in the horror movie industry in the seventies and eighties was to take a crappy movie and hype it with deceptive marketing slogans, covers and staged outrage. Numerous films were branded Video Nasties in the mid-eighties and removed from the shelves simply due to graphic cover art or the reputation they had gained through media hyst...

SS Experiment Love Camp - Sex experiments in pursuit of a better tomorrow!

"You bastard, what have you done with my balls?"...and that my friends is the kind of high quality dialogue you can expect from the dreadfully dire S.S. Experiment Love Camp.S.S. Experiment Love Camp (Lager SSadis Kastrat Kommandantur) is the everyday story of female prisoners of war who are brought to Von Kleiben's secret camp to partake in unusua...

The Witch Who Came From the Sea - Molly really knows how to cut men down to size.

As the number of "video nasties left to watch" list reduces in size it is becoming more and more apparent that many of the films are not worthy of their cult status. The majority of the watched list consists of low quality films fishing for controversy or mediocre movies hyped above and beyond their nastiness levels. The Witch Who Came from the Sea...
