Don't Panic... It only happens once in a... Bloody Moon.

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"

The Boogeyman - The most terrifying nightmare of childhood is about to return!

Another movie on the "Why the hell was this classed as a Video Nasty?" list is Ulli Lommel's The Boogeyman. Admittedly The Boogeyman is a movie from 1980 and was probably quite extreme compared to UK Saturday evening TV but, compared to some of the cannibal movies and exploitation flicks on the DPP video nasty banned list, it is simply a low budget...

If you do... then don't say we didn't warn you.

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"

Don't Go in the Woods - Everyone has nightmares about the ugliest way to die.

Don't Go in the Woods is another slasher rescued from wrongful imprisonment in the short-lived purgatory known as the BBFC Video Nasty List. Proof that it was not worthy of the cult status imbued by inclusion on the now infamous list is that when it was finally re-released in 2007 it passed the censors uncut and was rated 15. It is also a contentio... Click to read more "Don't Go in the Woods"

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...

Macabre (Macabro) AKA Frozen Terror (1980)

Once she kept a lover on the side. But that's nothing compared to what she's keeping in the freezer.

Macabre (Macabro) - Once she kept a lover on the side. But that's nothing compared to what she's keeping in the freezer.

Lamberto Bava's directorial debut, Macabre (Macabro) AKA Frozen Terror, is a beautiful romance story about illicit love affairs, unrequited devotion, tragedy, child murder, child murderers, necrophilia, and blind people dropping the soap. It would be impossible to do this work of perverse sinister art justice without giving away the surprise so if ... Click to read more "Macabre (Macabro) AKA Frozen Terror"
