The Video Nasties #96 – Night of the Demon (1980, James C Wasson)

‘Something huge…like an elephant.’ We all come to the Video Nasties for different reasons. Some come to be shocked, others come for the sex and nudity. Some come for the catharsis, others for the thrill. And then there are those … Continue reading

The Video Nasties #95 – Nightmare City (1980, Umberto Lenzi)

‘It’s not the fault of science or technology, but of man!’ I know it doesn’t seem long since we watched Eaten Alive, but Nightmare City finds us back in the hands of Umberto Lenzi, this time tackling the zombie genre … Continue reading

The Video Nasties #94 – The Last Hunter (1980, Antonio Margheriti)

‘Fucking mosquitoes. Goddamn jungle. Fucking war!’ The Last Hunter – despite its hopelessly generic title – is one of the most exciting movies you’ll find amongst the Nasties. Of course, it has the advantage of being an action/war movie, but … Continue reading

The Video Nasties #89 – Forest of Fear (1980, Charles McCrann)

‘Holy shit, it’s a woman!’ Oh brother, this is one hell of a dull movie. Despite a sure-fire premise (bloodthirsty hippies!), writer-director-producer-editor-lead actor Charles McCrann fails to do anything interesting with it. In fact, the whole idea was done much … Continue reading
