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.

Film Review: Debris Documentar (2003)

SYNOPSIS:

Defecation. Death. Decay. Documentation.

REVIEW:

Most reviews of Debris Documentar follow the same redundant pattern: descriptions of the countless disgusting acts in the film, interspersed with exclamations of how disgusting it all is. If those acts were to be listed here in detail – and this is no exaggeration – there would be no space left for an actual review. This is the debut feature (although … Continue reading

The story of Charlie … 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
