Ratman - The Critter from the Shitter

Not knowing what to expect, Ratman (Quella villa in fondo al parco) provided a pleasantly disturbing chunk of Italian trashy nastiness. Possibly the most disturbing aspect of the experience was the rat-monkey-monster himself played by Nelson de la Rosa, the once smallest person in the world (R.I.P.), adding a serious amount of realism to the creepy...

Cannibal Apocalypse - In the jungle, or in the the city, still they must EAT!

Cannibal Apocalypse (Apocalypse domaini) is a creative cannibal addition to the DPP Video Nasty list that manages to shock without the need for jungle tribes, national geographic nakedness or cruelty to animals. What it delivers is a nice storyline about Vietnam veterans inflicted with a taste for flesh and although there is not much apocalyptical ...

From the secret files of the Vatican.

Killer Nun (Suor Omicidi) - From the secret files of the Vatican

A noticeable gap in the Horror Extreme Video Nasty collection was the gap that can only be filled by a nunsploitation movie. Killer Nun (Suor Omicidi), also known as Deadly Habits, filled this gap nicely but the reason for its banishment to the video nasty list in the first place can only be assumed to be subject matter as there is little nastiness...

Torso AKA Carnal Violence - One Day She Met a Man Who Loved Beautiful Women...But Not All in One Piece

With a tagline of "When Whores Meet Saws" and a bright yellow cover promising the "finally uncut" version drawing in horror fans like moths to a light bulb, the expectation that Torso AKA Carnal Violence (I corpi presentano tracce di violenza carnale) would contain more bush and gore than the 2000 presidential elections is in the bag. Unfortunately... Click to read more "Torso AKA Carnal Violence"

Demons (Dèmoni) (1985)

They will make cemeteries their cathedrals and the cities will be your tombs.

Demons - They will make cemeteries their cathedrals and the cities will be your tombs.

Despite the expected poor dubbing and tawdry rock music (sounds familiar), Demons (Dèmoni) is a gore inspiring and influential Italian horror movie that has obviously helped fashion many a horror movie that has been created since. Packed to the gunwales with stereotypes and cringe worthy dialog, Demons is also brimming with grisly and creative guts... Click to read more "Demons (Dèmoni)"

Demons 2 (Dèmoni 2: L'incubo ritorna) (1986)

The nightmare returns.

Demons 2 - The Nightmare Returns

Demons 2: The Nightmare Is Back (Dèmoni 2: L'incubo ritorna) is pretty much an Italian zombie flick but with the undead referred to a demons and possessing a little more flair than the shambling gut-piles we are used to from the Italian reanimated population. Written by Dario Argento and directed by Lamberto Bava, Demons 2 has all of the cheesy pop... Click to read more "Demons 2 (Dèmoni 2: L'incubo ritorna)"

Salo, or the 120 days of Sodom (Salò o le 120 giornate di Sodoma) (1975)

Salo, or the 120 Days of Sodom

If you have ever wondered what the most depraved, sadistic, cruel and disturbing movie available to the general public is then you should maybe get yourself a copy of Salò or 120 Days of Sodom (Salò o le 120 giornate di Sodoma). Salo is an extreme Italian movie directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini and inflicted on the public in 1975. Not really a horror...

Mother of Tears (La terza madre) (2007)

Mother of Tears - If she lives, we all die.

The third and final part of Dario Argento's Three Mothers Trilogy is Mother of Tears (La Terza madre). 27 years after Inferno, the final part of the trilogy that began with Suspiria ends pretty much how it began. I must admit that I was expecting to be disappointed with this movie and envisioned it to be bastardised by Hollywood influences but with... Click to read more "Mother of Tears (La terza madre)"
