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...

The Incredible Melting Man - He feeds on human flesh.

Some movies are so bad they are bad, some are so bad they are good and The Incredible Melting Man is so bad it's amazing. The film is a prime example of producers interfering in a filmmakers vision and, while the interference has a negative effect on the intended end product, it endows the final movie with something truly quirky and unique. It was ... Click to read more "The Incredible Melting Man"

Island of Death - The lucky ones simply got their brains blown out.

Nico Mastorakis is the first to admit that his motivation for making Island of Death was money. This highlights that maybe other directors have the same motivation and just like to grease the wheels of the marketing machine with bullshit as Island of Death still stands out as one of the more notable entries on the Video Nasty list. His inspiration ... Click to read more "Island of Death"

Killer Nun (Suor Omicidi) - From the secret files of the Vatican

A noticeable gap in the Horror Extreme Video Nasty collection was the gap that can only be filled by a nunsploitation movie. Killer Nun (Suor Omicidi), also known as Deadly Habits, filled this gap nicely but the reason for its banishment to the video nasty list in the first place can only be assumed to be subject matter as there is little nastiness...

The Last House on the Left - To avoid fainting, keep repeating "It's only a movie...It's only a movie..."

The Last House on the Left is Wes Craven's first horror movie venture and with it he created one of the most influential exploitation movies that has shaped the genre and been mimicked so many times. Due to the realism and brutality of the movie it became an arduous task to finally get the movie release with an R rating and it wasn't until the thir...

Night Train Murders (AKA Don't Ride on Late Night Trains or L'ultimo treno della notte)

I have to say that about halfway through this film I was ready dismiss it as rather longwinded and aimless: not only does Night Train Murders (aka Don't Ride on Late Night Trains or L'ultimo treno della notte) manage to claw its way back, but I ended up being rather impressed by this low-key example of exploitation fare which plays its cards very c...
