Extreme Cinema Film Reviews

These films have been isolated to their own section for their extreme cinematic content. The subject matter can vary from one presentation to the next. While HorrorNews.net does review alot of horror films, we feel there are "particular" films that are exceptional in the sense of being "too" hardcore for traditional consumers (shock value driven). These may contain extreme cases of gore, violence, rape, incest and/or torture...(to name a few). Many of these releases have emerged from the underground sector of film making (and in many cases stayed there as well).

In that same sense, we recognize a subculture genre interest that has developed for this particular sector of horror. Most extreme cinema titles are works of fiction and special fx. These are not recommended for young viewers, but may peak the curiosity of adult viewers who are looking for visual horror that takes things to harder levels. Many of the earlier "extreme cinema" titles emerged out of Asia, though that has changed in recent years past.

SYNOPSIS:

Commandos head deep into the Amazon jungle to rescue a general’s daughter who has been kidnapped by a cannibal tribe.

REVIEW:

Before we even get into the movie itself, I want to talk about the title of this film. Or should I say, titles? Here, we’ll be going with the title In the Land of Cannibals, which is simply a translation of the Italian title, Nella terra dei cannibali. But, much … Continue reading

Dr.Leprosy's-Visceral-2011-movie-(2)

SYNOPSIS:

A murder takes place in the violent underworld.

REVIEW:

Dr. Leprosy’s Visceral is a homemade, shot on video horror movie about a guy who kills people.

Film Review: American Guinea Pig: Bouquet of Guts and Gore (2014)

American-Guinea-Pig--Series-2-Bouquet-of-Guts-and-Gore-2014-movie-(7)

SYNOPSIS:

Japan’s darkest secret has become America’s newest nightmare

REVIEW:

If you’re reading this review, you’re no doubt already familiar with the legendary Guinea Pig films from Japan. If not, long story short, they’re a group of hardcore gore films from Japan, made in the 1980’s, definitely not for the squeamish, that pretty set new standards for how disturbing and depraved a horror film can be. The story of Charlie … Continue reading

A-Gun-For-Jennifer-1997-movie-Todd-Morris-(4)

SYNOPSIS:

A woman comes to New York City from Ohio to escape an abusive husband and gets entangled with murderous female vigilantes who prey on abusive men.

REVIEW:

A Gun for Jennifer is a different kind of rape revenge movie than what most exploitation fans might expect; it focuses far more on the second part of the equation, the revenge. With most of the films in the subgenre, … Continue reading

Combining the sensational brutality of mondo documentaries with the jungle adventures that saturated silver screens during Hollywood’s golden age, the cannibal genre was born. Italian directors flocked to the rainforests throughout … Continue reading

Film Review: Knochenwald (2000)

Knochenwald-2000-movie-Utz-Marius-Thomsen-(2)

REVIEW:

If there’s one thing that drives me crazy, it’s when people get down on independent, shot on video movies for not looking enough like Titanic, or not having as good of acting as Twilight, or not being written as well as Battlefield Earth (ask me on a different day, you’re liable to get a whole list of other answers as to what the “one thing” is that drives me crazy). It’s especially unnerving … Continue reading

Film Review: Ilsa the Tigress of Siberia (1977)

Ilsa---The-Tigress-Of-Siberia-1977-movie-Jean-LaFleur-(5)

YNOPSIS:

Erotic adventure in Siberia.

REVIEW:

Poor Ilsa (you haven’t heard that very often, have you?). I feel like, deep down, all she’s ever tried to do was prove that women can be as strong as, if not stronger than, men. It’s a valiant enough goal, but I think the problem lays in her methods. Running a Nazi prison camp, a slavery ring, and an abusive women’s prison, while simultaneously trying to … Continue reading

Film Review: Ozone! Attack of the Redneck Mutants (1986)

Ozone!-Attack-of-the-Redneck-Mutants-1986-movie-Matt-Devlen-(2)

SYNOPSIS:

A hole in the Ozone layer turns some rednecks into flesh-eating mutants.

 REVIEW:

If you really think about it (and I know you want to), it’s kind of surprising that with the recent cash-in on everything zombie, we haven’t seen much from the mutant/mutation sub-genre. Really, they’re the same type of movie, a horde of transformed ex-humans on the loose, sometimes changing with little to no warning. While with zombies … Continue reading

Film Review: Kettensagen Zombies Redux (Chainsaw Zombies) (2010)

Kettensägen-Zombies-Redux-Chainsaw-Zombies-Redux-2010-movie-(7)

REVIEW:

Okay, so apparently, back in 1999, Andreas Pape (a regular in Timo Rose films) and Oliver Kellisch (an actor almost exclusively in Timo Rose films) got together and made a short (28 minutes long) German splatter movie about a zombie with a chainsaw called Kettensagen Zombies (or Chainsaw Zombies). For whatever reason, in 2010 the same two directors got together, along with their 1999 short, and re-cut, re-edited, and re-packaged the same … Continue reading
