Default Grotesque (2009) vs Serbian Movie (2010) Archive Thread

I've read some pretty extreme things about the upcoming Japanese horror flick "Grotesque", which is getting a UK release in August.

If I believe only a portion of the buzz, this'll make recent "torture porn" look pale by comparison.

There will be the obligatory Austrian "Full Uncut" release, but the UK disc should be much cheaper and would certainly be of interest IF the uncut/cut status were confirmed.

Yes it will be interesting to see if it passes uncut. Does sound very extreme.

It's quite breath-taking - our client 4Digital is putting this out - not sure as yet about if it will be uncut.

Please, keep us posted on this one, Almar, because if only half of what I read about "Grotesque" is true, this will become a very close race with the BBFC indeed, as this is regarded as much stronger than "Ichi, the Killer"- which infamously lost 3 mins back then to the censors.
Anyway, even with minor cuts this movie will probably be a toughie to sit through.

I just watched the gore filled trailer to "Grotesque",certainly looks very strong but is there anything more to it than just gore,which I'm finding more and more boring these days.

Still haven't lost my appetite for gore, even though I'll be past my mid thirties this year.

Well, the descriptions of "Grotesque" mention that the acting is supposed to be very good and tense too- but I guess the gore will be the main attraction here.

According to Amazon it has a 73 minute run time, must just be gore all the way through.

It's pretty relentless I have to say - we'll get some clips going here once we know what's happening.

Seeing as 4 Digital is one of your clinets is there any chance they will join Cult-Labs like Arrow?
