the human centipede 2: full sequence

takedasangel  asked:

In your opinion what films do you consider to be the modern day video nasties.....?

Ah, now this is a great question.  I still plan on touching upon the areas of extreme cinema that I haven’t yet covered, but I feel like this narrows it down even further to those which would certainly be the modern equivalent of yesteryear’s “Video Nasties”.

I want to say that “modern” would equate to after the Video Recordings Act of 2001, but I may sneak in a couple from the mid to late 90′s just for the hell of it (note: I won’t be adding any films that were previously covered here under New French Extremity, Tokyo Gore Style (which is really too comedic for consideration anyway), CAT III horror, or avante-garde/surreal/experimental/short format, as the list would become far too long).  I will, however, be including a couple of choice films from the list of shot-on-video horror.  Some films will be grouped together by director, as some directors push the envelope with most of their work.

In no particular order:

  • Antichrist (2009)
  • A Serbian Film (2010)
  • August Underground (2001), August Underground’s Mordum (2003), and August Underground’s Penance (2007)
  • Green Elephant (1999)
  • Funny Games (1997)
  • The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) (2011)
  • Cannibal (2006), Meloncholie der Engel (2009), and Reise nach Agatis (2010)
  • Schramm (1993)
  • Slaughtered Vomit Dolls (2006), ReGOREgitated Sacrifice (2008), Slow Torture Puke Chamber (2010), and Black Mass of the Nazi Sex Wizard (2015)
  • The Burning Moon (1992), Premutos - Der gefallene Engel (1997), and Dard Divorce (2007)
  • Ostermontag (1991)
  • Nekro (1998)
  • Man Bites Dog (1992)
  • Pig (2010)
  • Fetus (2008)
  • Schizophreniac: The Whore Mangler (1997)
  • The Necro Files (1997)
  • The Bunny Game (2010)
  • Scrapbook (2000)
  • Murder-Set-Pieces (2004)
  • Family Portraits: A Trilogy of America (2004)
  • Snuff 102 (2007)
  • Burglar from Hell (1993)
  • Red Spirit Lake (1993)
  • Violent Shit III: Infantry of Doom (1999)
  • Urban Flesh (1999)

Lastly, I don’t think they can be considered “movies” as much as video mixtapes, but I think I’d be remiss not to mention Most Disturbed Person On Planet Earth (aka MDPOPE: The Movie), and its sequel.

I feel as though this should be a lot longer, but there are honestly several notebook pages filled with potential entries that I haven’t even researched yet, plus many more from earlier decades that could have easily fit the bill as well (not to mention non-horror films based around disturbing subject matter), so there’s still quite a bit of soil for me to till in the realm of extreme cinema.
