WARNING: SPOILERS!

Don't read unless you've seen the film or aren't bothered about major plot reveals.


A SERBIAN FILM



IS IT ART?

DOES IT HAVE A POINT?

ARE WE DEFENDING IN INDEFENSIBLE?


When the Hollywood mainstream can turn the multiplexes into a mire of torture porn and Saw-style sadism and you can go and sit with an audience and see...

From the Annals of DVDisgo (RIP) and DVDresurrections


Possession








Another film caught up in the UK's draconian Video Nasty clampdown of the early 80s, Possession is in fact more of an extreme art house movie than the exploitative hard gore horror films it was lumped in with on the Department of Public Prosecutions banned list.

First of all, a word of caution - viewers expecting bloody thrills...

Sex & Zen

Posted 26th April 2009 at 10:50 AM by Sam@Cult Labs

Sex & Zen





Classic Hong Kong Cat III eroticism that still manages to befuddle the sensibilities years after it was first released. Mixing softcore sex scenes with costume drama, this example of libertine film making is a great example of a genre that flourished in the Far East for a while until the Chinese government cracked down on it's more explicit facets.

Sex & Zen is the everyday story of a newly married man who goes on a journey...

Visitor Q





Visitor Q was part of a V-Cinema (Japanese "Straight-to-video genre) series on the nature of love

Taxidermia

Posted 20th April 2009 at 04:48 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

Taxidermia





I've always loved extremity when it comes to cinema. Not for me the pale bloodless horror of mainstream multiplex horror movies. I'll happily sit and watch movies that offend me. I think I want to be shocked, to shake myself out of my jaded cinematic reverie. From the hideous experiment camp horrors of 'Men Behind The sun' to the brutal flip-flop of Rape-Revenge conventions in the French art-shock movie 'Irreversible', the power of film to...
