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"

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"

R-Point - Su-chang Kong's Supernatural War Horror

R-Point is a supernatural horror movie from South Korea set in Vietnam War surroundings (and filmed in Cambodia). As is common in K-Horror the movie is much darker than its Japanese counterparts and, although the movie is quite low on gore and the scares are quite subtle, the overall eeriness of the whole experience is quite intense. The movie star... Click to read more "R-Point (Arpointeu)"
