Alice, Sweet Alice - If You Survive This Night... Nothing Will Scare You Again.

Alice, Sweet Alice is a nice little chunk of psychological grey-matter shafting slasherism from 1976 America, although it was originally released as Communion it was re-released as Alice, Sweet Alice in 1978 and then again as Holy Terror in 1981. One of the main reasons that this movie has the ability to fuck with the head is due to the convincing ... Click to read more "Alice, Sweet Alice AKA Communion"

Alucarda - They gave their souls to Hell... but the Devil wanted MORE!

Convents: they're all well and good, but a functional convent rarely makes for an entertaining movie. Luckily for us, we have an entire genre based on what happens when good nuns - or their young charges - go bad, and demented Mexican movie Alucarda (Sisters of Satan) must rank amongst the most grisly, camp and compelling takes on the theme. Here, ... Click to read more "Alucarda"

Bay of Blood (Reazione a Catena)

With the opening scene consisting of the hanging of a wheel-chaired coffin-dodger followed closely by the stabbing of the gentleman that set up the noose trap setting the scene for the longevity of most of the characters in this movie, it is a wonder that Mario Bava manages to develop any characters in Bay of Blood AKA Twitch of the Death Nerve AKA...

Bloodsucking Freaks: Join The Fun!... Human Dart Boards... "Home Style Brain Surgery"... Dental Hijinks!

The title conjures up images of a vampire movie but, as with any Troma flick, you rarely get what you expect. Bloodsucking Freaks (aka The Incredible Torture Show) is not a trademark Troma slapstick comedy horror but an extremely depraved and embroidered exploitation flick that is not without it's very darkly humorous charms. As expected the movie ... Click to read more "Bloodsucking Freaks"

Don't Go in the House - If you do... then don't say we didn't warn you.

Video Nasties taught us a lot of things to "don't" do but some couldn't resist looking in the basement, riding on the late night trains and some were tempted to open the window despite not really knowing which window they were supposed to be wary of. In 1979 the temptation to do what shouldn’t be done arose again with Don't Go in the House, a fairl... Click to read more "Don't Go in the House"

Don't Go Near the Park - They were cursed to eternal life at the cost of their souls!

Despite being an awful film, Don't Go Near the Park is an important movie for horror geeks of a certain age. It made it to the video nasty list which gave numerous horror movies that deserved to vanish into obscurity a cult status. The list has also increased recent demand for a lot of low quality shit which is the only reason this movie is likely ... Click to read more "Don't Go Near the Park"

Don't Look in the Basement - The Day The Insane Took Over The Asylum!

Originally titled The Forgotten, but better know by its reissue title of Don't Look in the Basement, this movie is a low-budget Video Nasty from acclaimed horror director S.F. Brownrigg. The low-budgetness of the movie is one of its defining qualities and the bad sound quality increases the terror being portrayed, when it's quiet it's very quiet an...
