Horror List Search

As with all bloggers (I assume), I check my stats fairly frequently; most times to see how a post has performed. I also tend to look at search terms quite often, and some of the results are just downright disturbing. Some make me laugh, others make me scratch my head in confusion and others just make me want to gag. WTF! This is a horror film blog. Not a porn blog, bdsm blog or torture blog (are there such things?) Anyway here is a list of some weird and disturbing search terms that have been used on Thepuremassacre. Enjoy (actually don’t enjoy, cringe!) (more…)

The Bighead

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read this “this project has been funded” on kickstarter, referring to Edward Lee’s seminal splatterfest, The Bighead. What sicko’s would actually want to see that perverse, degrading, gross, atrocious, blood spattered book ever made into a film…….well me for one. I read the book, threw up, read it again some months later, blogged about it, threw up again and decided I enjoyed the book immensely. If you haven’t read The Bighead (must have a strong stomach) I suggest you do, it is the literary equivalent of A Serbian Film and The Human Centipede combined and on crystal meth. Here’s a link to a short write up I did on the book Wurd: The Bighead. Anyway (excuse my frothing at the mouth) a short film has concluded filming and is set to be premiered in Los Angeles on Saturday March 30, 2013 at 7:00 PM at the Acme Theater in Hollywood. Check out the trailer and all the juicy details below.

What do you get when you cross the twisted mind of Wrath James White and a literary gross out competition? Sloppy Seconds. A vomit inducing, nauseating collection of hard core horror’s vile virtuoso, Mr. White. Every year at the World Horror Convention, the much anticipated Gross-Out Contest is held to determine which author can deliver the most disturbing an grotesque tale of all. Sloppy Seconds is a collection of Wrath James White’s entries into that heinous contest. Uncut in all of their putrid glory, these shorts are among the absolute worst words I’ve ever read! No shit. I can’t even begin to describe the sickening subject matter contained in the book. If you are even mildly interested in reading this, heed my warning, STRONG STOMACH REQUIRED! Sloppy Seconds rates 11/10 on the brutally disgusting scale. Have fun and keep a vomit bag nearby.

This was an unusual flick by our friends across the pond and while I am a big fan of French horror and the new French extremity, I had a hard time with this one. Baise-Moi isn’t quite horror, it’s more of a violent crime/spree killing oddity mixed with generous amounts of hardcore porn (full penetration scenes, plenty of bj’s, masturbation, rape, and tons of male and female full frontal explicit nudity). I was quite surprised to see this one pop up on crackflix! I like my horror and I like my porn (who the hell doesn’t right?) but I don’t think they go well together. One minute I’m watching a couple of women getting nasty and the next I’m watching a guy get his head blown off, it was all really disconcerting. The plot involves a relatively good looking prostitue meeting a jaded rape victim with a background in questionable pornography and embarking on a country wide killing spree; involving numerous random victims. They drink, get high and explicitly screw their way through France with no remorse and no pity. Ya ya I know it sounds pretty cool but it just really isn’t that effective; honestly if the sex and nudity were absent from Baise-Moi I probably wouldn’t have made it through the 77 minute running time. I felt no attachment to any of the characters in the film whatsoever and didn’t seem to care one way or another what happened to either of the leads; add a weirdly awkward score into the mix and you get an inexplicably disjointed amateur-ish porn flick. If I want hardcore sex scenes I think the last census put the amount of porn sites listed worldwide at roughly 800 trillion……….. A rare miss by the french. Baise-Moi @ IMDb.

A Serbian Film. 2010.

A Serbian Film (Serbian: Српски филм / Srpski film) is a 2010 Serbian horror film and the first feature film directed by Srđan Spasojević. It tells the story of a down-on-his-luck porn star who agrees to participate in an “art film”, only to discover that he has been drafted into a snuff film. (wiki)

Well I finally decided to watch the much hyped gore-fest that is A Serbian film. Was I shocked, disgusted, surprised, depressed, troubled, confused and nauseated? In a word, Yes. The film explores the seedy and soul-less underworld of the hardcore pornography industry, from a Serbian perspective. I know that sounds like a film that everyone would want to watch right? Wrong. There is a lot a of tough subject matter portrayed in the film and I think all but the most serious fans of hardcore shock horror will find it rather offensive. A Serbian Film is loaded with full frontal nudity, explicit sexual scenes, extreme gore and brutal violence. Total shock and awe! There are images contained in the flick that I don’t think I will ever forget for the rest of my life. Seriously. Watch this nasty nasty film at your own peril. You’ve been warned.
