Evil Dead Trap - Toshiharu Ikeda's Japanese Slasher

Considering Evil Dead Trap (Shiryo no wana) was made in 1988 is still kicks the ass of many of the recent cookie-cut J-Horrors. Rather than being a supernatural tale steeped in folklore and overrun by long haired apparitions (as we have come to expect from Japanese horror), Evil Dead Trap is more reminiscent of non-Asian horrors of the era such as ...

Blood Feast - A weird and grisly ancient rite horrendously brought to life

As the earliest movie on the video nasty list (1963) Blood Feast (also known as Feast of Flesh and Egyptian Blood Feast) is also surprisingly one of the most worthy. Although the movie is old and the effects are very unconvincing compared to many others in the list, the gore is quite extreme and the storyline is quite depraved considering the era a...

As expected the movie ... Click to read more "Bloodsucking Freaks"

Suicide Club (Suicide Circle) - Well then, goodbye everybody

Not only is Suicide Club (Suicide Circle) a highly original and innovative slice of Asian cinema it also has, in my opinion, the best opening scene in any horror movie ever! There is plenty of blood and gore (most of which is in the first five minutes), the usual confusing-to-Westerners storyline and an abundance of cheesy pop music. The movie is f...

A Tale of Two Sisters - Fairytales have never been this Grimm

A Tale of Two Sisters (or Janghwa, Hongryeon which translates as Rose Flower, Red Lotus) is a South Korean chiller which, although typical of a lot of supernatural Korean horror, is a superbly crafted story with an almost fairytale-like undertone and a disturbing and unexpected twist . Directed by Ji-Woon Kim (who's only other notable horror that I... Click to read more "A Tale of Two Sisters (Janghwa, Hongryeon)"
