The Video Nasties #93 – Inferno (1980, Dario Argento)

‘The only true mystery is that  our very lives are governed by dead people.’ Classy is not a word I’d use to describe many of the Nasties, or many horror films in general for that matter. But it’s appropriate for … Continue reading

The Video Nasties #92 – House on the Edge of the Park (1980, Ruggero Deodato)

‘Are we gonna boogie?’ House On The Edge Of The Park feels like some kind of Video Nasty All-Stars. Behind that dreadful, unwieldy name we’ve got a movie from the director of Cannibal Holocaust and the stars of Last House … Continue reading

‘The world is putrid.’ Where would the Video Nasties be without jungles? At least Hell Prison isn’t another damn cannibal movie. Instead, it combines the aesthetics of the cannibal genre with the cheesy tropes of a woman in prison movie, … Continue reading

The Video Nasties #88 – Eaten Alive! (1980, Umberto Lenzi)

‘You’ll see worse before this is over.’ Eaten Alive is like a cannibal movie supergroup, the Travelling Wilburys of gut-munching schlock. We’ve got Cannibal Holocaust‘s Robert Kerman. We’ve got a reunion for Ivan Rassimov and Me Me Lai from Deep … Continue reading

The Video Nasties #87 – Don’t Answer the Phone (1980, Robert Hammer)

‘Get up or I’ll tear your tit off.’ Before we begin, we must first ponder an important question that Don’t Answer the Phone raises. In the opening scene, a nurse comes home and begins to get undressed. The first thing … Continue reading
