Do you ever feel like you just can’t seem to have enough blood and gore in your films?  Do you often find that you are NOT spending the majority of your horror movie watching time cringing and looking away? Fear no more horror fiends and friends alike.  I have compiled a list of absolute NASTIES.  I myself, found I had to look away more times then I would like to admit with these movies.


Where to begin with this movie? Just overall FUCKED. Such a disturbing, psychotic, extreme movie. Lots of blood and merciless brutality on the end of the serial killer.  This one definitely hits you from all angles; messes with your mind, pulls at your heartstrings, puts a pit in your stomach, is disgusting to watch, and even grosser to think about.  Lots of scenes really made my heart beat fast with just how shockingly gross they…

ABCs of Death 2

ABCs of Death 2

Get ready to gasp, laugh, shriek and cheer at this latest anthology of 26 short tales, each punctuated by a different shocking, wickedly entertaining death. Completely one-upping its predecessor, ABCS OF DEATH 2 is packed with outstanding thrills, chills and kills, brought to you by some of the acclaimed film-making talents behind fan favourites CUBE (Vincenzo Natali), AMERICAN MARY (The Soska Twins), BIG BAD WOLVES (Aharon Keshales & Navot Papushado), MANBORG (Steven Kostanski), ROOM 237 (Rodney Ascher), INSIDE (Alexandre Bustillo) and JUAN OF THE DEAD (Alejandro Brugues), just to name but a few!Toronto After Dark Film Festival 2014.

I really enjoyed the chaotic bloody confusing mess of the first ABCs (my review/breakdown of the film here), and by the looks of the insanely NSFW red band trailer, I will definitely enjoy the second installment. Check it out below.

TIFF 2014 has barely begun and I’m already looking ahead to the next incomparable Toronto-based film festival, Toronto After Dark! A few days ago, the first set of films screening at this years festivities were unveiled and needless to say, TAD definitely picked up the slack left by this year’s Midnight Madness programme. You can see the full, 10-film list below with trailers and synopses. I’ll be posting the remainder of films yet to be announced when they’re unleashed at the end of september.



From the twisted mind of writer Tony Burgess (PONTYPOOL) comes a stunning, spectacular ode to classic horror and fantasy.

Based on a story by acclaimed sci-fi author Robert A. Heinlein (STARSHIP TROOPERS), the Spierig Brothers (DAYBREAKERS, UNDEAD)…

Director:Jaume Balagueró
Writers:Jaume Balagueró, Manu Díez

Being a huge fan of REC 1&2 (I didn’t say 3), I have been literally frothing at the mouth every time a tidbit of news, teaser poster or in this case trailer is released. Now the trailer is pretty much just a mash-up of the previous films; minus the trainwreck that was Genesis, it does whet the appetite for some blood soaked chaos. Doesn’t it! Here’s a bloody pic from the set and the “Trailer”. UPDATE new official trailers added! Check it.



The Green Inferno

The Green Inferno

A group of student activists travel from New York City to the Amazon to save the rainforest. However, once they arrive in this vast green landscape, they soon discover that they are not alone – and that no good deed goes unpunished.
Director: Eli Roth
Writers: Guillermo Amoedo, Eli Roth
Stars: Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Aaron Burns
Budget: $6,000,000 (estimated)

I am really pissed, I have been absolutely drooling over this for the past year or so waiting patiently for the homage to the legendary Cannibal Holocaust. Bloody Disgusting had this to say “Deadline is reporting that Green Inferno, the Roth-directed film about student activists who travel from Gotham to save the Amazon rainforest only to be pursued by a cannibal tribe, has been taken off Open Road’s release calendar. The film was scheduled for wide release on September 5. We’ve been supporting the film heavily here on the site after we posted this positive review last September. They write that this happened because financier Worldview Entertainment is balking at ex-CEO Christopher Woodrow’s commitment to provide the P&A. They have also confirmed from Open Road that the release date is scratched, though the distributor won’t comment further, including whether there will be a later release date or if this goes straight to video.
Anywhoo check out the trailers below and go watch Cannibal Holocaust.

An homage to the classic Italian exploitation flicks Cannibal Holocaust, Cannibal Ferox and Man From Deep river (among others). Bloody Amazonian carnage in the classic Mondo stylings, The Green Inferno is high on my list of Must See films of 2013. Check out the bloody first image released from the film, below.

Official Synopsis

A group of student activists travel from New York City to the Amazon to save a dying tribe but crash in the jungle and are taken hostage by the very natives they protected.

Evil Dead

Reviews and thoughts by Thepuremassacre (myself), my brother PC74 (that’s his real name, weird huh) and my wife aka The Wife (who I dragged to see the film). Two horror freaks and an innocent woman along for the ride; Evil Dead in their own words. Enjoy!



Evil Dead opens to a frantic scene involving a group of apparent backwoods hillbillies chasing a very distraught young woman. She is mercilessly hit in the face and subdued by the deranged attackers, awaking sometime later tied to a post in a dark and rotting cellar. Urgent dialogue is spoken in a foreign language by a maniacal old crone as her hideously mutated – and obviously inbred – offspring look on with dire trepidation. The old hag mentions an evil book and insists that the young woman must be purified; purified by fire. Her father steps forward, pours gasoline on his daughter and sets her ablaze, awakening an evil inside her that laughs and taunts him, calling her own mother a whore. He aims a shotgun at her and blows his burning daughters head off……. thus begins Evil Dead. Read the rest of this entry »

Evil Dead 2013Five friends head to a remote cabin, where the discovery of a Book of the Dead leads them to unwittingly summon up demons living in the nearby woods. The evil presence possesses them until only one is left to fight for survival. Just got back from the theater, wiped the blood from my eyes and the gore from my clothing before finally allowing Evil Dead to “soak” in. A truly visceral blood soaked joy ride! In all honesty I was absolutely stoked for the film; waiting in feverish anticipation for the release of the remake of Raimi’s classic flick. Most of the time (for me anyway) the hype and build up a film destroy’s the actual experience of the film itself; with this in mind I nervously took my seat (at the back of the theater, of course) and began my journey back to that dilapidated cabin the woods. With dilated pupils I surveyed the frantic opening sequences of the film and a tense grin spread across my lips when the necronomicon was opened and the malevolent spirit began wreaking it’s bloody havoc on our unwary cast. As the madness set in, the massacre began. I was not to be disappointed; Evil Dead was arguably the best remake I have ever seen; a bloody re-imagining if you will. Bloody, insane carnage is the focus of the film and boy does it ever work! Gruesome practical effects, buckets of blood and brutally gory mayhem all combine to form one hell of a horror film. As a fan of hardcore horror and the original Evil Dead series I couldn’t be happier! Absolutely fantastic film! I will be expanding this into a review at some point this weekend so stay tuned…..In the mean time, GO SEE THIS FUCKING FILM! Read the rest of this entry »

Roger Ebert – Farewell

Posted: April 4, 2013 by puremassacre in Movies

Roger Joseph Ebert (June 18, 1942 – April 4, 2013) was an American journalist, film critic and screenwriter. The Chicago Sun-Times said he “was without question the nation’s most prominent and influential film critic,” and Forbes described him as “the most powerful pundit in America”. He was the first film critic to win a Pulitzer Prize and to be awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. (Wikipedia)

Didn’t always agree with the man but he will be sorely missed. RIP.
