Dark Water - Drenched in Creepiness

Even with its PG-13 rating, Dark Water (Honogurai mizu no soko kara) still manages to be a very unsettling movie and is one of the original influences (along with Ring) on what has become the current commercially accessible J-Horror formula. Dark Water was one of the first mainstream Japanese horrors to create scares through very subtle means makin... Click to read more "Dark Water (Honogurai mizu no soko kara)"

Deadly Outlaw: Rekka - He is the hunter and the hunted

It is difficult to say anything about a Takashi Miike film without resorting to comparisons with his more famous and outlandish works such as Ichi the Killer, Gozu and Visitor Q. Deadly Outlaw: Rekka (Jitsuroku Andô Noboru kyôdô-den: Rekka) seems a quite subdued offering when compared to the lunacy he is more renowned for. Despite this, in comparis...

Profondo Rosso (Deep Red) - Flesh Ripped clean to the Bone... And the Blood runs Red...

Profondo Russo AKA Deep Red (also known as The Hatchet Murders) is considered among horror fans to be one of Dario Argento's greatest movies, along with Suspiria and Trauma. Typically Argento, with his artistic style of directing using unusual camera angles, lighting and the musical score to maximum effect, the movie is a giallo thriller coming off...

Demons - They will make cemeteries their cathedrals and the cities will be your tombs.

Despite the expected poor dubbing and tawdry rock music (sounds familiar), Demons (Dèmoni) is a gore inspiring and influential Italian horror movie that has obviously helped fashion many a horror movie that has been created since. Packed to the gunwales with stereotypes and cringe worthy dialog, Demons is also brimming with grisly and creative guts... Click to read more "Demons (Dèmoni)"

Demons 2 - The Nightmare Returns

Demons 2: The Nightmare Is Back (Dèmoni 2: L'incubo ritorna) is pretty much an Italian zombie flick but with the undead referred to a demons and possessing a little more flair than the shambling gut-piles we are used to from the Italian reanimated population. Written by Dario Argento and directed by Lamberto Bava, Demons 2 has all of the cheesy pop... Click to read more "Demons 2 (Dèmoni 2: L'incubo ritorna)"

Devil Hunter - Hunted, raped, and tormented out of her mind...

If you like "sleaze for the sake of sleaze" exploitation flicks then Jess Franco is a director delivered by angels. Another of Uncle Franco's entries in the DPP Video Nasty list is Devil Hunter (along with Bloody Moon and Women Behind Bars). Devil Hunter (also known as Sexo Canibal) is simply an excuse to display boobies, lady builder cleavage, the... Click to read more "Devil Hunter (El caníball)"

The Devil's Rejects

The Devil's Rejects - Go to Hell

The Devil's Rejects is Rob Zombie's follow up to House of 1000 Corpses and was nearly called House of 2000 Corpses. Once again this horror master has created a masterpiece which, although a sequel to Corpses, is a very different movie. The bad guys from the first movie are back, Baby Firefly (Sheri Moon Zombie), Otis B. Driftwood (Bill Moseley) and... Click to read more "The Devil's Rejects"
