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...

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.

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...

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...

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 ...
