The Last House on the Left - To avoid fainting, keep repeating "It's only a movie...It's only a movie..."

The Last House on the Left is Wes Craven's first horror movie venture and with it he created one of the most influential exploitation movies that has shaped the genre and been mimicked so many times. Due to the realism and brutality of the movie it became an arduous task to finally get the movie release with an R rating and it wasn't until the thir...

Zombie - When the earth spits out the dead, they will rise to suck the blood of the living!

In 1979, horror director Lucio Fulci droppped Zombie. Confusingly the movie was known as Zombi 2 in various parts of the world as the makers cunning marketing ploy tried to fool the public into thinking that this movie was a sequel to George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead which was renamed Zombi when released in Italy. To further confuse the issue th... Click to read more "Zombie"

Night of the Demon - An evil mutation embarks on a wave of brutal butchery.

Castration, dismemberment and disembowelment propelled Night of the Demon onto the UK's Video Nasty list and the movie remained banned there until 1993 when a cut version was released by Vipco. The movie is still banned in Norway and Germany and only a cut version exists in the UK. The movie became infamous for a couple of scenes but, as often is t...

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...

The Beyond - Behind this doorway lie the terrifying and unspeakable secrets of hell.

Lucio Fulci has definitely created an Italian zombie movie classic with The Beyond. This movie is much more than your traditional slow moving zombie flick and at this moment in time I would rate it as Fulci's best zombie movie.The movie begins in Louisiana, 1927, when a group of vigilantes break into the "seven doors hotel" and drag the occupant of...

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...
