Snapshot: "Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl" (2009)

Yoshihiro Nishimura and Naoyuki Tomomatsu's deliriously bizarre 2009 action epic "Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl" can't arrive on DVD soon enough. The film, which chronicles the battle between two very unusual girls who fall in love with the same boy, promises a vast array of over-the-top arterial sprays and an abundance of gore-soaked mayhem. If you're still perplexed as to why, exactly, I'm anxiously awaiting its release, check out Nishimura's "Tokyo Gore Police." All your questions shall be answered within.

A Lizard in a Woman's Skin (REVIEW)

Lucio Fulci is probably most famous for his role as accelerant in the Italian gore arms race of the late 70’s and early 80’s. If Argento and Umberto Lenzi were Kiss and Alice Cooper then Fulci was Gwar. His signature works of grue abandoned logic and cohesive narrative in order to push the splatter factor past revulsion to near parody. Films like “Zombi 2”, “City of the Living Dead” and “The Beyond” sought out increasingly severe and unconventional ways of getting entrails, connective tissues, and the four humors onto the screen by the bucketful.

Raiders of the Damned (REVIEW)

There is a special area of cinematic ineptitude so intense that most movies that find their way onto DVD will never even sniff it. It is a place reserved for productions that are devoid of vision, intricacy, production value, craft, acting and engaging story. It is a realm often inhabited by porn productions that out reach their audience’s basic drives, and occasionally by sanctimonious religious films that mistake wholesome for cool. The kinds of films that I am talking about involve no reverence for the cinematic storytelling tradition or the craftsmen who helped to raise it to an art form.

Narrows "Gypsy Kids" Video

Yesterday the band Narrows posted a video for the track “Gypsy Kids” which comes of their new CD “New Distances”. Director Craig Murray has created one of the most brutal videos I’ve ever seen. I’m 100% sure this will never find it’s way on to MTV or any other TV channel for that matter in the US. There’s no storyline to it really, but there is a whole lot of mutilation, bare asscheeks and of course blood. I had nightmares last night.
