Visions of Ecstasy created by director/writer Nigel Wingrove has some history behind it.
The film itself, if stepping outside of the controversial tones, sort of reminded me of those late night Showtime erotica shorts. The piece is simply a category “nunploitation” film, but where it pushed the envelope lies within the blasphemous elements of the piece.
Thanatomorphose is an hellenic word meaning the visible signs of an organism’s decomposition caused by death. One day, a young and beautiful girl a wakes up and finds her flesh rotting.
An odd young man (who obviously has a ton of mental problems) decides to get together with a group of his weird friends and make movies in an old abandoned building. What kind of movies? Why snuff films, of course!
Have you ever watched a movie and afterward wonder to yourself What the Hell did I just watch? That is exactly what I did tonight after watching Last House on Dead … Continue reading
A group of young martial artists infiltrate an underground pit fighting ring where the loser is chopped up and served in a Chinese restaurant.
We have gore, blood, good jams, and boobs in the first two minutes of this fucker. Do I really need to say any more?

You’ve heard all the stories about chinese restaurants, right? No stray animals around them at all…you know where I’m going … Continue reading

Polish director Ryszard Bugajskiâ€™s 1989 film, Interrogation (or Przesluchanie), is not so much a horror movie as it is one great big metaphor. It was originally filmed in 1982 (when most of the country was under martial law), but … Continue reading
Â Mr Olivares has already recovered, but now he needs a vacation.
Wow, what a fantastic gory free for all splatterfest. This one snuck under the radar but is accessible now to lovers of extreme cinema. Before getting into review make sure to give this one a look on youtube which now hosts the piece in its entirety. (see below)
Mr Olivares (JosĂ© MarĂa Angorrilla) is advised by his doctor to get … Continue reading

The story … Continue reading
Kana tries to end her starring role in an abusive porno. For her, the end comes only after she’s been reduced to a “Tumbling Doll of Flesh”.
Tamakichi Anaru is a Japanese director with a very disturbing vision. I really canâ€™t think of a better way to start this review, so Iâ€™ll just reiterate that this man has some sick thoughts going through his head. He is the director of such movies … Continue reading

A family of nobles in Carrozza travel in a forest in which, in the same moment, a satanic cult completes human sacrifices made up of young girls.
One of the harder to find extreme films to come out in the underground community, “Maleficia” can now be purchased as part of the Dr. Gore DVD from Metaluna. In fact, I initially found very little in the … Continue reading

The 2004 version of Toolbox Murders is a very loose remake of Dennis Donnellyâ€™s 1978 film of the same name (strangely enough, it was Donnellyâ€™s only movie, as he was mostly a television director, having worked on … Continue reading

Der Tod ist erst der Anfang, Exitus interruptus – Exit death is just the beginning. Another gory exploitaton film by Andreas Bethmann
Iâ€™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, Iâ€™m exaggerating, but he definitely does have his favorite plots, doesnâ€™t he? On the one hand, weâ€™ve got the demon/zombie horror films … Continue reading
A man who performs as a children’s birthday party clown tries to piece his life back together after being gang-raped.
For a movie that has such a cool intro â€“ credits roll over a disembodied clown nose, while subtle, creepy music plays under the visuals, making you think of a number of 1980â€™s slasher classics â€“ Vulgar certainly is a clunker. Think Clerks, with all the ridiculous dialogue and pseudo-edgy attempts … Continue reading

Sheâ€™s back, somehowâ€¦ One year after Don Edmondsâ€™ (now) legendary Nazisploitation cult classic, Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS, was released, he came … Continue reading
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

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.
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
