The Machine Girl - She wont stop, until she's got revenge

The Machine Girl (Kataude mashin gâru) is a Japanese cacophony of action and gore from Noboru Iguchi and if you know that name from Tokyo Gore Police then you pretty much know what to expect... nonsensically named ninjas, malicious married mobsters, gratuitous gore and enough spent metal to repair the Titanic. As seems to be a common thread in Japa... Click to read more "The Machine Girl (Kataude mashin gâru)"

The Maid - Supernatural Horror from Singapore

Kelvin Tong's The Maid (Kimyo na sakasu) is a fairly typical J-Horror (despite being Singaporean) for the best part, but takes on a fairly disturbing twist as the story closes. Relying on an eerie atmosphere and Singaporean superstitions rather than an abundance of guts, The Maid manages to create a more disturbing and dark feel than is usual withi...

Meat Grinder (Cheuuat gaawn chim)

Initial glances of Tiwa Moeithaisong's bloodthirsty Thai shocker Meat Grinder (Cheuuat gaawn chim) makes you think you are watching Mrs. Lovett serving up Aunt Mei's Dumplings with enough monosodium glutamate to blind all beholders. On this level the movie works very well with plenty of vermillion spilt at the hands of a violently expert butcheress... Click to read more "The Meat Grinder (Cheuuat gaawn chim)"

Mother of Tears (La terza madre) (2007)

Mother of Tears - If she lives, we all die.

The third and final part of Dario Argento's Three Mothers Trilogy is Mother of Tears (La Terza madre). 27 years after Inferno, the final part of the trilogy that began with Suspiria ends pretty much how it began. I must admit that I was expecting to be disappointed with this movie and envisioned it to be bastardised by Hollywood influences but with... Click to read more "Mother of Tears (La terza madre)"
