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.
