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"

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...

Bloody Moon - So Sleazy it Needs No Tagline

If you are a fan of unstylish German early-eighties retro slashers (and surely this is a dominant genetic trait nowadays) then you cannot possibly die until you have seen Jesus Franco's "almost" infamous video nasty Bloody Moon (Die Säge des Todes - "The Saw of Death") AKA Profonde Tenebre and The Bloody Moon Murders. For lovers of tasteless disco ... Click to read more "Bloody Moon"

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"

The Dorm that Dripped Blood - When the kidding stops... the killing starts!

Another movie banned in the UK during the Video Nasties hysteria in the 1980's is Pranks, probably better known as The Dorm that Dripped Blood. Directors Stephen Carpenter and Jeffrey Obrow deliver another slasher quite stereotypical of the era, a time when slashers didn't require numb-nut panic-stricken cheerleaders, a nerd, a trio of pot-heads an...

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...
