LITTLE HEAVEN

Here Nick Cutter, of the well-received horror thrillers THE TROOP and THE DEEP, tries his hand at a genre epic of the type popularized by Stephen King and Robert McCammon, with mixed results

THE WOMAN

Despite some pretty glaring missteps, this is one of the most stylish and atmospheric horror films of 2011, a gory yet compelling depiction of American psychosis

THE WIZARD OF GORE (1970)

THE WIZARD OF GORE is a fairly typical H.G. Lewis production, meaning it probably won’t ever win any awards but is great fun for vintage gore fans

THE WARD

This may seem like just another trashy potboiler of the type you see dozens of each year, and in many respects that’s just what it is

MURDER LOVES KILLERS TOO

The latest in an apparently neverending line of old school slashers, MURDER LOVES KILLERS TOO is a clever take on any number of splatter movie clichés

MEN BEHIND THE SUN

This Hong Kong shocker has attained near-legendary status among extreme movie buffs, and is indeed a shocking, traumatizing film

MARTYRS

An extremely well made, thoughtful and unique film, the French-Canadian MARTYRS (2008) is a good movie by most standards, but it’s also a profoundly fucked-up one

MANTIS IN LACE

Sex and psychedelia merge in this supremely silly late-sixties freak-out about an acidhead stripper on a killing rampage.  It’s stupid as shit but fun nonetheless!
