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: Exitus Interruptus (2006)

Exitus-Interruptus-2006-movie-5

SYNOPSIS:

Der Tod ist erst der Anfang, Exitus interruptus – Exit death is just the beginning. Another gory exploitaton film by Andreas Bethmann

REVIEW:

I’m beginning to believe that Andreas Bethmann has really only made two movies, but just keeps remaking each one with different actors and extended scenes. Of course, I’m exaggerating, but he definitely does have his favorite plots, doesn’t he? On the one hand, we’ve got the demon/zombie horror films … Continue reading

Film Review: Vulgar (2000)

Vulgar-2000-movie-Bryan-Johnson-4

SYNOPSIS:

A man who performs as a children’s birthday party clown tries to piece his life back together after being gang-raped.

REVIEW:

For a movie that has such a cool intro – credits roll over a disembodied clown nose, while subtle, creepy music plays under the visuals, making you think of a number of 1980’s slasher classics – Vulgar certainly is a clunker. Think Clerks, with all the ridiculous dialogue and pseudo-edgy attempts … Continue reading

Film Review: Baise Moi (2000)

baise-moi-4

SYNOPSIS:

Not for the faint-hearted. Baise-Moi, literally translated as ‘Fuck Me’, defies categories – it features p*rnographic sex scenes & violent shootings, but it won’t fit anyone’s definition of an erotic thriller. After separately committing murders, two French women (Karen Lancaume & RaffaĂ«la Anderson) join together in a spree of crime & sex.

Because both have endured abuse at the hands of men, the movie seems to start as a self-righteous … Continue reading

slaughtered-vomit-dolls-2006-movie-film-4

SYNOPSIS:

The gruesome tapestry of psychological manifestations of a nineteen year old bulimic runaway stripper-turned prostitute as she descends into a hellish pit of Satanic nightmares and hallucinations.

REVIEW:

Emetophilia. Those who know the definition of that word will probably be able to decide if Slaughtered Vomit Dolls is for them without reading any further. For all of the (fortunately) uninitiated, emetophilia is more widely known as vomit fetish. And if … Continue reading

Film Review: Assault: Jack the Ripper (1976) – CAT III

Assault!-Jack-the-Ripper-1976-movie-CATIII-1

SYNOPSIS:

The title Assault: Jack the Ripper is slightly misleading. This is not a film about Jack the Ripper or a variation thereof, but rather a demented Japanese version of Bonnie and Clyde with knives instead of guns and a great deal more sex and less love. Here, a withdrawn chef in a restaurant hooks up with a bossy and slightly obnoxious waitress. After accidently killing a rather unfortunate hitchhiker one rainy night, … Continue reading

Controversial director Uwe Boll depicts the harsh reality of the process inside one of the most infamous Nazi death camps by using brutally realistic imagery. Book-ended by documentary footage as well as interviews with German teenagers about what they know about the Holocaust, Boll effectively shows us just how depraved and sadistic life in the camp could be.

Uwe Boll is known as that guy who directs video game movies. You’ve … Continue reading
