Evil Dead Trap - Toshiharu Ikeda's Japanese Slasher

Considering Evil Dead Trap (Shiryo no wana) was made in 1988 is still kicks the ass of many of the recent cookie-cut J-Horrors. Rather than being a supernatural tale steeped in folklore and overrun by long haired apparitions (as we have come to expect from Japanese horror), Evil Dead Trap is more reminiscent of non-Asian horrors of the era such as ...

Evil Dead Trap 2: Hideki - Beware of the "Box" Cutter

Evil Dead Trap 2: Hideki (Shiryô no wana 2: Hideki) has very little to do with it predecessor apart from the occasional appearance of the now older Hideki (the ex-conjoined tormentor revealed in the final section of Evil Dead Trap). Izô Hashimoto (scriptwriter of Akira) takes the writing (along with Chiaki Konaka) and directorial reins and provides... Click to read more "Evil Dead Trap 2: Hideki (Shiryô no wana 2: Hideki)"

Exte - Hair Extensions (Ekusute)

A Japanese movie entitled Exte - Hair Extensions (Ekusute) will instantly conjure up uninspiring pictures of standard supernatural hair-ghosts creeping out whiney Asian girls in an attempt to exploit the trend of J-Horror breaking into the Western world. This could not be further from the truth. The hairy (and often wet) ghost is an integral part o... Click to read more "Exte - Hair Extensions (Ekusute)"

Fudoh - The New Generation (Gokudô sengokushi: Fudô) - Takashi Miike Mayhem

Never one to make a movie that is not extreme, Takashi Miike's Fudoh - The New Generation is a bizarre Yakuza movie with all of the gore, perversions and misfit characters that we would expect from this acclaimed director who never shy's away from pushing the limits of decency. Fudoh is considered to be Miike's first movie to successfully cross-ove... Click to read more "Fudoh - The New Generation (Gokudô sengokushi: Fudô)"

Gozu (Gokudo kyofu dai-gekijo: Gozu) - More Craziness from Takashi Miike

Never known to conform (well maybe One Missed Call was conforming), the crazy brain of Takashi Miike delivers another 1.48333 hours of Yakuza profoundness with Gozu (Gokudo kyofu dai-gekijo: Gozu, which translates as Grand Theatre of Perversion and Fear: Cow's Head). The movie starts off as a peculiar gangster flick with a plethora of eccentric cha... Click to read more "Gozu (Gokudô kyôfu dai-gekijô: Gozu)"

Grotesque (Gurotesuku) - King of Japanese Grotesque Movie

With all the surrounding hype and it's UK banning by the BBFC, extreme horror fan's expectations have been set quite high for Kôji Shiraishi's Japanese exploitation flick Grotesque (Gurotesuku). It is a travesty that the movie was banned for trivial reasons such as being "an unrelenting and escalating scenario of humiliation, brutality and sadism" ...

Guilty of Romance - I desperately want to do something. Anything will do. I want to suppress this urge.

Say what you like about Japanese director Shion Sono, but let's all agree on one thing: he doesn't care for drab opening scenes. This much is true of the staggering Guilty of Romance (2011), the first film I have seen of this year and undoubtedly one which will wind up on my top films list at the end of 2012. In terms of theme, it has much in commo... Click to read more "Guilty of Romance (Koi no tsumi)"

Guinea Pig: Devil's Experiment

If you are a sicko looking for 43 minutes of Japanese, unnecessary, sadistic violence in a plotless scenario intended solely to offend the viewer, push the boundaries of what is acceptable in film and provide snuff porno for serial killers throughout Europe then look no further than the first instalment of the Guinea Pig movies, The Devil's Experim...

Guinea Pig 2: Flower of Flesh and Blood (Za ginipiggu 2: Chiniku no hana) - Japanese Horror Extreme

Guinea Pig 2: Flower of Flesh and Blood (Za ginipiggu 2: Chiniku no hana) is one sick little Japanese horror movie, I say little because it's only about 45 minutes long and I say sick because it's about 42 minutes of blood, guts and gore executed in the most sadistic manner possible. Guinea Pig 2 is definitely up there with the most extreme horror ... Click to read more "Guinea Pig 2: Flower of Flesh and Blood (Chiniku no hana)"

Guinea Pig 3: He Never Dies - Or "Shudder! The Man Who Doesn't Die"

Following the controversy of the first two Guinea Pig Movies, The Devils Experiment and Flowers of Flesh and Blood, Guinea Pig 3: He Never Dies (Za ginipiggu 3: Senritsu! Shinanai otoko... which translates to Shudder! The man who doesn't die) adopts a much more light hearted approach to displaying unnecessary gore and mutilation. Whereas the first ...
