Mark of the Beast

ORDER DVD Mark of the Beast is an odd, somewhat awkward movie. It takes place in an unidentified area of (presumably) America where civilisation ends at the border of a great Forest populated by strange wild people who worship an odd monkey god. Two friends, Debbie (Debbie Rochon) and Strickland (Dick Boland) try to escort […]

Dead End Drive-In

ORDER DVD Brian Trenchard-Smith began his career in the mid ‘70s with the low budget action films Kung Fu Killers and The Man from Hong Kong, he later went on to direct such underrated classics as Turkey Shoot, Night of the Demons 2 and of course, Dead End Drive-In. It’s 1990, the stock market has […]

Bordello of Blood

Most fans of late 80s horror are familiar with the HBO anthology series Tales From the Crypt and its host the Cryptkeeper. The show was arguably one of the best of its kind and it enjoyed a successful run unlike its attempts to crossover to the big screen with Demon Knight and Bordello Of Blood. […]

Evil Bong

ORDER DVD If you’re anything like me the sight of a chainsaw wielding Tommy Chong on the cover of a DVD about a killer bong just screams out WATCH ME! Shit sounds great right? Evil Bong is Full Moon delving into the stoner/college kid comedy. It’s a film that doesn’t take itself too seriously just […]

Isle of the Damned

I’ve found the Horror/Comedy subgenre quite lacking over the past few years as most of the output has been cookie cutter Army of Darkness and Shaun of the Dead clones. In all honesty I wasn’t expecting much from Isle of the Damned, but another tired retread in the similar vein thankfully that wasn’t the case. […]

Dolla Morte

ORDER DVD My mind is constantly in the gutter and I’m usually chuckling away at shit I probably shouldn’t be, so reading the description of Bill Zebub’s Dolla Morte I was immediately drawn to it. I’ve always enjoyed humour that a lot of people out there find deeply offensive or un-PC. Lowbrow gross out toilet humour just […]

Mark of the Devil

ORDER DVD Filmed in Austria and starring a young Udo Kier and an old Herbert Lom as the apprentice and master witch hunters, Christian and Lord Cumberland respectively, this trashy knock off of Witch Finder General kicks off with a wagonful of nuns being raped and slaughtered so you just know it’s going to be […]

Night of the Tentacles

ORDER DVD Our story starts with Dave (Brandon Salkil) a lonely artist living in an apartment block he rarely leaves whose life seems to revolve around walking his dog, listening to his next apartment neighbours have sex and beating off to the sounds of his downstairs neighbour Esther jilling off. It all changes though when […]

A Field in England

It is the 17th century, and the English Civil War rages on with all the grime and viciousness peculiar to civil wars. The film opens with a cleric named Whitehead (Reece Shearsmith) hiding under a bush and praying to God to spare him. When his pursuer is killed, Whitehead takes the opportunity to flee from […]

Hatchet

ORDER DVD Ostensibly another in a ridiculously long line of slasher films Hatchet does however possesses a sharp sense of humour, great special fx and some genuine scares. The gore-filled pre-credit sequence featuring Robert (“have-scenery-WILL-chew”) Englund sets the scene for the titular Hatchet and, like most slasher films, 5 minutes is all you need to […]
