Zombie - When the earth spits out the dead, they will rise to suck the blood of the living!

In 1979, horror director Lucio Fulci droppped Zombie. Confusingly the movie was known as Zombi 2 in various parts of the world as the makers cunning marketing ploy tried to fool the public into thinking that this movie was a sequel to George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead which was renamed Zombi when released in Italy. To further confuse the issue th... Click to read more "Zombie"

Shogun Assassin - Lone wolf and son. The greatest team in the history of mass slaughter.

It's not usual that a Samurai movie would be reviewed on this site but Shogun Assassin (known in Japan as Kozure Okami) is here for two reasons. Number one is that this movie almost made the notorious Video Nasty list in the UK and number two is the plentiful amount of blood and violence. One of the movie's taglines is "It's impossible to keep a bo... Click to read more "Shogun Assassin"

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...

The Driller Killer - The Blood Runs In Rivers... And The Drill Keeps Tearing Through Flesh And Bone

Abel Ferarra's The Driller Killer is the movie that started off the whole Video Nasty hysteria in the UK during the early eighties. Made in 1979, the majority of the controversy surrounding the low-budget movie was due to Vipco's marketing campaign which consisted of a number of full page advertisements showing the video's cover, which was an image...

Fudoh - The New Generation (Gokudô sengokushi: Fudô) - Takashi Miike Mayhem

Never one to make a movie that is not extreme, Takashi Miike's Fudoh - The New Generation is a bizarre Yakuza movie with all of the gore, perversions and misfit characters that we would expect from this acclaimed director who never shy's away from pushing the limits of decency. Fudoh is considered to be Miike's first movie to successfully cross-ove... Click to read more "Fudoh - The New Generation (Gokudô sengokushi: Fudô)"

Profondo Russo AKA Deep Red (also known as The Hatchet Murders) is considered among horror fans to be one of Dario Argento's greatest movies, along with Suspiria and Trauma. Typically Argento, with his artistic style of directing using unusual camera angles, lighting and the musical score to maximum effect, the movie is a giallo thriller coming off...

Visitor Q - The only thing stranger than this family is... Visitor Q.

If you have seen any Takashi Miike movies then you expect to be shocked. With Visitor Q the controversial Japanese director does not disappoint, not really a horror (although there are some gory moments) this movie is definitely extreme. Takashi Miike really pushes the boundaries of decency with this movie but manages to make a really prominent (if... Click to read more "Visitor Q (Bijitâ Q)"

The Devil's Rejects - Go to Hell

The Devil's Rejects is Rob Zombie's follow up to House of 1000 Corpses and was nearly called House of 2000 Corpses. Once again this horror master has created a masterpiece which, although a sequel to Corpses, is a very different movie. The bad guys from the first movie are back, Baby Firefly (Sheri Moon Zombie), Otis B. Driftwood (Bill Moseley) and... Click to read more "The Devil's Rejects"

Marebito - They didn't see something that terrified them. They saw something because they were terrified.

Takashi Shimizu (director of Ju-On: The Grudge and Reincarnation) brings us an original J-Horror movie by the name of Marebito AKA (The Stranger from Afar). The movie takes the humble vampire movie in a new direction, in a Japanese kind of way, but is much less focused on the supernatural ghosts and spirits that we tend to associate with your typic...
