Hansel and Gretel (Henjel gwa Geuretel)

Korean director Pil-Sung Yim's Hansel and Gretel (Henjel gwa Geuretel) is an incongruent mixture of horror and fantasy with dramatic fluctuations between the two genres. The relationship between this 2007 story and the Grimm 1812 story of the same name is very loose and it is more appropriate to say that the fairy tale motivated and inspired the ch...

This movie is a truly twisted and violent look at crazy family of inbred mania... Click to read more "House of 1000 Corpses"

Ichi the Killer - Excessive Violence from Takashi Miike

Ichi the Killer (Koroshiya 1) is a tremendously violent, tremendously twisted and slightly confusing Yakuza movie with the perverse and bizarre storyline that we have come to expect of Takashi Miike. The gore is excessive, the violence is brutal and there is a plethora of peculiar, complex, drug-fuelled characters, once again typical of this legend...
