Salo, or the 120 Days of Sodom

Satanico Pandemonium: From Bride of Christ to Slave of Satan

Distribution company Mondo Macabro are eminently reliable purveyors of lurid, rare world cinema and - praise the Lord - Mexican flick Satanico Pandemonium (AKA La Sexorcista) is no exception. All the ingredients for a one-off viewing experience are there: nuns both clothed and unclothed, blood, lesbianism, oh, and a guest appearance by Old Scratch ...

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

The popularity of so many modern Japanese horror movies over the last ten years has no doubt generally piqued Western curiosity about the country's cinematic legacy: its more recent gory movies didn't emerge out of a vacuum, that's for sure, and it's getting easier to track down earlier works which show us this much, such as Shogun's Sadism (The Jo...

Snuff - The picture they said could NEVER be shown

A common tactic in the horror movie industry in the seventies and eighties was to take a crappy movie and hype it with deceptive marketing slogans, covers and staged outrage. Numerous films were branded Video Nasties in the mid-eighties and removed from the shelves simply due to graphic cover art or the reputation they had gained through media hyst...

SS Hell Camp aka The Beast In Heat - A Terrifying Story of Violence and Madness

Any sane person with taste really has to start to worry when the epitome of sleaze Ilsa is held up as a cinematic goddess, so much so that she inspired a slew of copycat Nazi exploitation flicks with stern bitches with Swastikas on their arms. I am, however, not a sane person and have no taste so it's hardly surprising that I really enjoyed SS Hell... Click to read more "SS Hell Camp aka The Beast in Heat"

Torso AKA Carnal Violence - One Day She Met a Man Who Loved Beautiful Women...But Not All in One Piece

With a tagline of "When Whores Meet Saws" and a bright yellow cover promising the "finally uncut" version drawing in horror fans like moths to a light bulb, the expectation that Torso AKA Carnal Violence (I corpi presentano tracce di violenza carnale) would contain more bush and gore than the 2000 presidential elections is in the bag.

The Witch Who Came From the Sea - Molly really knows how to cut men down to size.

As the number of "video nasties left to watch" list reduces in size it is becoming more and more apparent that many of the films are not worthy of their cult status.

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"
