Ab-Normal Beauty - Drop Dead Beautiful

The more prolific half of the Pang Brothers released Ab-Normal Beauty (Sei mong se jun) in 2004. Oxide Pang Chun seems to be unsure whether he wants to make a morbid documentation of an obsessive photographer's fascination with death or a slasheresque snuff movie... so he does both. Rather than clumsily merge of the two concepts the movie turns int... Click to read more "Ab-Normal Beauty (Sei mong se jun)"

Cannibal Holocaust - Ripout! Barbeque! Devour! How long can you take it?

I found Cannibal Holocaust to be a seriously disturbing horror movie although I'm not sure what it was that disturbed me. It wasn't the gore, the movie was very gory but I've seen a lot worse. There was no fear element of the movie, so it wasn't that. It was very brutal but once again I've seen much more brutality in other movies. I think it was th...

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 ...

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)"

Splatter: Naked Blood - Hisayasu Sato's notorious sex & gore masterpiece

It's not often that a horror movie shocks and appalls me but Japanese director Hisayasu Sato managed to do so with his enticingly titled movie Splatter: Naked Blood (Nekeddo burâddo: Megyaku). Although the effects are not entirely convincing Sato is not afraid to subject the viewer to some close-up, detailed, slow, torturous, graphic gore, with one...

A film that could only be made in South America, where life is CHEAP!

Snuff - The picture they said could NEVER be shown

A common tactic in the horror movie industry in the seventies and eighties was to take a crappy movie and hype it with deceptive marketing slogans, covers and staged outrage. Numerous films were branded Video Nasties in the mid-eighties and removed from the shelves simply due to graphic cover art or the reputation they had gained through media hyst...
