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: Slaughtered Vomit Dolls (2006)

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: Teenage Babylon (short film) (1989)

Teenage_Babylon-1989-short-film-4

SYNOPSIS:

Teenage Babylon presents the aftermath of three teenage suicides through the medium of what purports to be 1960s vintage black and white police file footage. The film’s haunting images, evoking teenage love gone wrong, are counterpointed by a series of saccharine torch songs, celebrating falling in love and the end of a masquerade. Through a kind of bathetic synthesis, the dialectic of Eros and Thanatos, love and death, is consummated in the … Continue reading

Film Review: SXXX-80 (short film) (1980)

SXXX80-(short-film).mov.0000

REVIEW:

A very obscure little 8 minute piece bleached in sickly yellow tones that almost certainly gets under you skin with its irritating droning (repeated over and over again). Instantly it is pretty apparent that it is some kind of experimental film you might envision as a perhaps a portion of the clips seen in “The Ring” movie. Directed by Monte Cazazza, we watch a young lady snip at her privates while holding what … Continue reading

Film Review: Mas Carnaza (1997)

Mas_Carnaza-1997-film-2

SYNOPSIS:

Short extreme film directed by Sergio Blasco about a jealous disgruntled ex boyfriend

REVIEW:

This 45 minute splatter film directed by Sergio Blasco ranks more interest for its racy cover than for the film experience itself. Spanish spoken and without subtitles, I was hoping that its visuals might carry the story a bit more than it ended up delivering. Though if you find yourself nodding off during a gore film such as I … Continue reading

The_Gore_Gore_Girls_1972

SYNOPSIS:

A ditsy reporter enlists the help of a sleazy private eye to solve a series of gory killings of female strippers at a Chicago nightclub.

REVIEW:

Before I start this review, I feel that I need to provide what they call in the business as a “full disclosure.” Herschell Gordon Lewis is one of my filmland heroes, right up there with Russ Meyer and John Waters. I have met him and we … Continue reading

SYNOPSIS:
