Battle Royale - Possibly the best Asian Horror Movie

Battle Royale (Batoru Rowaiaru) is a work of genius from Japanese director Fukasaku Kinji based on a novel by Takami Koshun. The originality of this movie is definately one of it's strong points. The movie was made in 2000 and paints a picture of a dark future in ruins where violence among Japan's youth has made adults fear their offspring. The ver...

The Cabin in the Woods - If you hear a strange sound outside... have sex.

The Cabin in the Woods is a rarity in modern horror in that it gets a lot right. Directed by Drew Goddard (who also wrote the movie alongside Joss Whedon), it is apparent that his time writing and producing TV was well spent, mastering the art before delving into film. Whedon's influence is also very noticeable within the execution of the film, the... Click to read more "The Cabin in the Woods"

Chopping Mall AKA Killbots - Where shopping can cost an arm and a leg

Back in the mid-eighties when scientists were technologically advanced enough to create sentient, self-actualising robots but couldn't quite work out how to empower them a wide vocabulary or legs, Jim Wynorski delivered Chopping Mall (AKA Killbots) to a very small proportion of the masses. As was customary back then, Chopping Mall employs a number ... Click to read more "Chopping Mall AKA Killbots"

Dead and Buried (1981)

Dead and Buried - It will take your breath away... all of it.

With a tagline harvested freshly from the mouth of the new recruit in the marketing department claiming the movie is from the creators of Alien, Dead and Buried's only connection with the aforementioned iconic sc-fi horror is that the screenplay was helped along by Dan O'Bannon who had a much bigger input in the outerspace classic than in this. A m... Click to read more "Dead and Buried"

Guinea Pig 5: Android of Notre Dame

The fifth of the Guinea Pig movies to hit the small and dirty screen is Android of Notre Dame, Kazuhito Kuramoto's attempt to recapture the serious tone of the more controversial episodes using innocents as the objects of experiments while maintaining the fantasy element introduced after Flower of Flesh and Blood. But devoid of the absurd over-humo... Click to read more "Guinea Pig 5: Android of Notre Dame (Nôtoru Damu no andoroido)"

The Incredible Melting Man (1977)

The Incredible Melting Man - He feeds on human flesh.

Some movies are so bad they are bad, some are so bad they are good and The Incredible Melting Man is so bad it's amazing. The film is a prime example of producers interfering in a filmmakers vision and, while the interference has a negative effect on the intended end product, it endows the final movie with something truly quirky and unique. It was ... Click to read more "The Incredible Melting Man"

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)"
