Non-anamorphic, but pretty decent quality.

4. Beast in Heat
Must be the most politically incorrect of the Italian naziploitation titles, a pubic hair eating monster is all it takes. Forget Barry Man!

5. Beyond (1981)
My logical side suggests this is the best film directed by Lucio Fulci, and it is, even the score is perfection! The AWE DVD release is very good. There are many decent versions of this film available, but none are pristine. The AWE release is close.

6. Blood Bath
The US dvd is OOP, which is a fact that I'm not sure many are weeping over. The printed lobbycards and the poster are a nice extra. This is not an actual video nasty.

7. Blood Feast (1963)
The film that started it all... The splatter movie #1... From the H.G. Lewis movies this is the one I like best. Maybe it is because of the humaine length of this episode, a tad + 60 minutes. The release is what you can expect from Something Weird Video (= very good, although the extras could be more related!)

8. Bloody Moon
An underrated film, for a reason. But they never compared it to Golden Temple Amazons!
J Luoma's rating:

OMG this is dull... The background story of the original is admittedly quite potential, but it doesn't quite catch the big fish, nor any small fish for that matter... You feel like you are stoned while watching this and become more interested in your own reactions than the movie. Hey, maybe that was intentional? Who knows, but it's a lot of turd. The "sequel" is a big joke. Culled scenes from #1 added with bad straight-to-video baseline... I think the biggest flaw is the slow rhythm. You kinda know everything before it even happens, because it takes so long to happen!

10. The Burning (2007)
Slightly underrated, although many love it! I ADORE IT! A classic... Great fun and wonderful gore f/x by Savini. The "economy" release may trick you, but it is very good.

A mediocre film, the US dvd is OOP, but there are copies available...

12. Cannibal Ferox (1981)
The infamous cannibal "classic" is available in anamorphic, widescreen presentation uncut. Too bad the film is not that great...

The best of the cut-munching genre. The soundtrack is excellent. This is the uncut version of the film.

People who added this item 8  Average listal rating (2 ratings) 4  IMDB Rating
14. Cannibal Man
A curious tale of a meatcutter with sideburns going berserk and killing everyone and making it a stench problem. An interesting case indeed! A forgotten arthouse classic.
J Luoma's rating:

People who added this item 2  Average listal rating (1 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating
15. Cannibal Terror
A weird cheapo very similar to Jesus Franco's Cannibals, even some of the actors are the same. At times it even seems like a far-out art movie - the action just doesn't seem from this world... Ha ha... Severin have made a good job with the restoration - extrawise the release is a bit blunt, we only get a saucier version of a scene and a cheesy trailer.

16. Contamination (1980)
A pretty solid Italian perfomance, although the dialoque is boring - even in the shower! The score is of course excellent! This is one of those movies that even the hardcore Euro horror fan needs time to adapt to, but over all, it is a good film. Not your everyday ALIEN, but a good film, in a good, Italian way.

17. Dead & Buried (Limited Numbered Edition - 50... (1981)
OMG the f/x are BAD! HOW small were the tv screens exactly back in the 80s? Or the movie screens? The plot in itself is inventive.

18. Devil Hunter [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (1980)
A bad film directed by the bad boy Jess Franco. A somewhat psychedelic experience. I sometimes find it hard to believe it was the same guy who directed such classics as FEMALE VAMPIRE or VAMPYROS LESBOS! Or maybe he went for a lunch just then..

A sick opening scene saves a lot, but the rest of the film is total waste of everyone's time.

20. Don't Go In The Woods Alone (1981)
See my review. A film that is amateurish in every possible way but the gore f/x are surprisingly effective, excluding the final scene which is rubbish. A film I cannot recommend nor trash. A film you will grow to like after surviving it, much like war thus.

22. Don't Look In The Basement - Bill Mcghee, Jessie Lee Fulton, Robert Dracup, Angie Brown, Jack Mcclelland

24. Eaten Alive (1977)
A truly disturbing movie with its obvious let-downs, but as far as atmosphere goes, this is a bloody effective movie! The Another World Entertainment released this one-disc-version. There is also the 2-disc version released by Dark Sky. And hell yeah, there were more reasons for the British censors to be appalled than its director being known for TCM! In many ways, this is more disturbing than TCM. The kills are absolutely brutal.

25. The Evil Dead - Book of the Dead - Book of the Dead
The Casablanca of horror movies gets a release it deserves! What can I say that hasn't been said already, like zillions of years ago? Dude! Did you know that the Finnish VHS prior to the certification system was edited (read: cut) by Renny Harlin, who directed stuff like DIE HARD 2: DIE HARDER or LONG KISS GOODNIGHT (which, by the way is one of the more intriguing Harlin films)... ? However, this release is not that cut Finnish version, in fact it is not a Finnish version at all. Why can't they all be like this???

27. The Original Faces of Death: 30th Anniversar... - Artist Not Provided
Did anyone actually BUY a copy of this dvd? I am still waiting for the FoD Ultimate Collector's Edition, even with the unofficial sequals. This film caused a mild havoc with a few faked scenes, including the monkey-brain-eating. The habit is real, but the scene was fake. I enjoyed the satanic mass scene, what a bliss!

29. Flesh for Frankenstein - Criterion Collectio... (1973)
A Weird One. Andy Warhol presents a gore movie? I don't think so. The film has been praised a lot, but I think I should watch it again - the last time I saw it was when I was 15. Then I thought it was a waste of time.

A pretty successful little frightener. A good film despite many a critique.

31. Gestapo's Last Orgy (1977)
The completely uncensored version in an anamorphic print! This film is at times well above the usual standard of Italian naziploitation genre and at times well below in outright obscenity, especially the scene of group cannibalism is appalling to say the least. At times the film tends to be a bit too boring compared to your usual naziploitation adventures.

A lot of bad things has been said about this turd of a movie, but if you leave all expectations at bay, you might in fact enjoy this. Pretty enjoyable after all and some of the f/x are a success.

34. Horrible [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (1981)
This MYA release wasn't that bad after all, although some of the material is from a VHS quality source. Anthropohagous and this were never too dear to me, but nevertheless films definitely standing from the crowd.

35. House by the Cemetery
One of the lesser Fulcis according to many critics, and to some the epitome of Fulci's total downfall. I enjoy this movie every time I see it, and accordingly, I vomit blood every time I hear the dreaded English dubbing! But it's always a bliss watching this uncut. The EC release brings a touch of nostalgia from the early era of DVDs; you might as well admit it is outdated! But what kind of a man whines about stuff like that?

36. House on the Edge of the Park (1980)
David Hess acts once again a nasty guy. This is a success of a film, shocking of course, but you cannot mention it in the same sentence with the likes of The Slayer or The Ghastly Ones.

37. I Spit on Your Grave (1978)
In fact many of the titles on the Video Nasty list ARE nasty. If you ask me, the question of censorship is not about whether something is art or "gratuitous", but it is simply locking films up. Whenever you feel the film is not fulfilling the standards of normality, it is cuddly bye bye behind bars... This has nothing to do with gratuitous content. It is just easier to cope with. I Spit on Your Grave is a very effective movie, and its problem is not that it is gratuitous, but that it is NOT. It is the very example of a movie that - when you release it - it will contradict every single one of your censorship policies! It is a good film too! The Finnish OOP DVD is very good, and there are many good releases around. This was #1 most rented title in the early 1980s in Finland...

A somewhat muddled performance? C'mon, it's only a movie! There are not many cannibal movies I can say I truly like. In fact, I can't think of any! However, the pristine DVD release leaves little to wish for. This is one of those movies I'd like to like, but don't know how.

50. Night Train Murders (2004)
A rerun on the Last House on the Left. In many ways, this is better and more believable than its predecessor. Yet somehow boring, too much drama for an Italian film!


 

These are the "video nasties" outlawed in the U.K. back in the Thatcher Era. The list includes both the titles actually prosecuted by the DPP and the ones that hung by the thread, ie were on the prosecution candidate lists. Since then, most of the titles have been re-released in an uncut DVD form.

Muuten hyvä lista, mutta Joel M. Reedin Blood Bath ei kyllä ole video nasty. Päivityksenä Blue Underground on julkaissut Deliriumin tätä nykyä DVD:llä ja Werewolf & the Yetistä on liikkeellä virallisesti ainakin joku espanjalainen printti.

BU:n Delirium on tuo Polsellin elokuva, eli ihan eri filmi. Blood Bath on pyörinyt Melonfarmersin listalla, jossa kyllä mainitaan, ettei kyseessä ole ns. virallinen nasty. Tällä verukkeella olen itse listalla pitänyt. Joku voisi myös mennä halpaan, koska nasty-listattu Bavan Bay of Blood on myös toiselta nimeltään Blood Bath... Werewolf & the Yetistä olisi mahtava saada leikkaamaton dvd, jotain piraattia vaan oon nähnyt.
