Have you ever wanted to make a film so absolutely stacked with wrongness that even the text version of the screenplay would have the BBFC nervously reaching for their safety scissors? Have you? Do visions of necro-incest and gut-fucking dance regularly through your head, as you're trying desperately to look normal in front of all the other people w... Click to read more "Taxidermia"

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