Funny Games - Shocking as "Clockwork Orange", as controversial as "Natural Born Killers"

In 1997, before "Home Invasion" movies were bandwagons ready for jumping on and torture movies were more than shallow exercises in pushing boundaries, Michael Haneke wrote, directed and probably scarred suburban Europeans with Funny Games. It is the delicacies of the implied psychological and physical terror of the victims that make the on screen a... Click to read more "Funny Games"

Gingerdead Man 2: The Passion of the Crust (2008)

Freshly baked terror.

Gingerdead Man 2: Passion of the Crust - Freshly Baked Terror

Gingerdead Man 2: Passion of the Crust takes our favorite, and hopefully only, killer cookie into an almost Lloyd Kaufman scenario mixed with Puppet Master and sprinkled with a smattering of Ghoulies. The movie is a mess and has ditched the restrained humor from the first movie and replaced it with unsubtle slapstick murderousness. The characters/v...

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)"

The Happiness of the Katakuris - The hills are alive with the sound of screaming

It is a widely little known fact that, despite his reputation for cartoonishly character filled, violent and perverted movies, Takashi Miike is also a creator of children's films and a creator of period movies (as in the corset-cleavage filled movies set in a period of time... not the kind downloadable from Germany). It is a narrower full-size fact... Click to read more "The Happiness of the Katakuris (Katakuri-ke no kôfuku)"

House of 1000 Corpses - Life and Death are Meaningless...And Pain Is God

Rob Zombie's first major assault on horror viewers senses is 2003's House of 1000 corpses, and what a violent assault it is. Strangely this movie was dropped by MGM and Universal until finally getting a limited theatrical release by Lionsgate... and we're so glad it did. 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...
