The Boogeyman - The most terrifying nightmare of childhood is about to return!

Another movie on the "Why the hell was this classed as a Video Nasty?" list is Ulli Lommel's The Boogeyman. Admittedly The Boogeyman is a movie from 1980 and was probably quite extreme compared to UK Saturday evening TV but, compared to some of the cannibal movies and exploitation flicks on the DPP video nasty banned list, it is simply a low budget...

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 ...

Cannibal Holocaust - Ripout! Barbeque! Devour! How long can you take it?

I found Cannibal Holocaust to be a seriously disturbing horror movie although I'm not sure what it was that disturbed me. It wasn't the gore, the movie was very gory but I've seen a lot worse. There was no fear element of the movie, so it wasn't that. It was very brutal but once again I've seen much more brutality in other movies. I think it was th...

Devil Hunter - Hunted, raped, and tormented out of her mind...

If you like "sleaze for the sake of sleaze" exploitation flicks then Jess Franco is a director delivered by angels. Another of Uncle Franco's entries in the DPP Video Nasty list is Devil Hunter (along with Bloody Moon and Women Behind Bars). Devil Hunter (also known as Sexo Canibal) is simply an excuse to display boobies, lady builder cleavage, the... Click to read more "Devil Hunter (El caníball)"

Macabre (Macabro) AKA Frozen Terror (1980)

Once she kept a lover on the side. But that's nothing compared to what she's keeping in the freezer.

Macabre (Macabro) - Once she kept a lover on the side. But that's nothing compared to what she's keeping in the freezer.

Lamberto Bava's directorial debut, Macabre (Macabro) AKA Frozen Terror, is a beautiful romance story about illicit love affairs, unrequited devotion, tragedy, child murder, child murderers, necrophilia, and blind people dropping the soap. It would be impossible to do this work of perverse sinister art justice without giving away the surprise so if ... Click to read more "Macabre (Macabro) AKA Frozen Terror"

Mother's Day (1980)

I'm so proud of my boys. They never forget their momma.

Mother's Day - I'm so proud of my boys. They never forget their momma.

For a Troma movie, Mother's Day is a relatively serious affair but with the complete absurdity that is usually associated with Troma don't expect anything too austere. Mother's Day is a deplorable, twisted and darkly humorous exploitation flick like what I Spit on your Grave would have been like if it starred The Marx Brothers. The premise of the m...

Night of the Demon - An evil mutation embarks on a wave of brutal butchery.

Castration, dismemberment and disembowelment propelled Night of the Demon onto the UK's Video Nasty list and the movie remained banned there until 1993 when a cut version was released by Vipco. The movie is still banned in Norway and Germany and only a cut version exists in the UK. The movie became infamous for a couple of scenes but, as often is t...
