I’m not going to pretend I know anything about contemporary Japanese splatter or J-splotation films; a term I am assuming is only used outside Japan. I’ve seen “Versus” on one of those late night video store runs back when video stores were actually a thriving business. Ya, whippersnappers. Takashi Miike’s “Audition” is one of my favorite horror films period. I would have to hand in my film geek card if I hadn’t encountered “Battle Royale” at some point or another.

If you were looking for another reason to sign up for Netflix other then helping Schnaars keep up with his faberge egg collection now you have one.

Despite its spotty track record amongst horror fans, Thailand's "Art of the Devil" franchise continues its quest to assault your senses with crazy witchcraft, an insane amount of splatter, and a bottomless supply of melodrama.
