"kojiro-abe"
 
Cannibal Holocaust [1979] (25th Anniversary Edition) [DVD]
Cannibal Holocaust [1979] (25th Anniversary Edition) [DVD]
"One of the best Italian horror films ever made, a real nasty endurence test complete with extreme gore and real animal killings (in the uncut version, at least)."
Dawn Of The Dead [1978] [1979] [DVD]
Dawn Of The Dead [1978] [1979] [DVD]
"One of the most entertaining horror films ever made with a liberal amount of pulled out intestines."
Last House On The Left (2 Disc Special Edition) [1972] [DVD]
Last House On The Left (2 Disc Special Edition) [1972] [DVD]
"Not as shocking a you would think but this still is a very gritty and upsetting little flick with one of the most realistic killing sequences on record."
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - Special Edition [DVD] [1974]
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - Special Edition [DVD] [1974]
"A somewhat similar but superior film to Last House on the Left and again boasting a very gritty and realistic quality that can really get under your skin."
Guinea Pig: Flower of Flesh & Making of Guinea Pig [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Guinea Pig: Flower of Flesh & Making of Guinea Pig [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Best known as the film that drove Charlie Sheen to the FBI. Not all it's chocked up to be. I'd love to know what dope Charlie Sheen was on when he thought this was real."
Men Behind the Sun [DVD] [1988] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Men Behind the Sun [DVD] [1988] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Probably the nastiest film on this list, an hour and a half long nightmare on film detailing the wicked experiments the Japanese performed during WWII in Unit 731 in Manchuria."
Bad Taste [1989] [DVD]
Bad Taste [1989] [DVD]
"Peter Jackson's first film, complete with brain eating and vomit slurping. You will not believe that the same man who gave us The Lord of the Rings could have produced this."
Braindead [DVD] [1993]
Braindead [DVD] [1993]
"Another early Peter Jackson flick. A zombie comedy that predated Shaun of the Dead by ten years. This is one of the wettest, goriest films ever made, if not the most and manages to out gore Bad Taste."
Audition [DVD] [2001]
Audition [DVD] [2001]
"A very jarring film from the prolific Takashi Miike. The film starts off like a romance, Miike then springs his trap in the final reel. Kiri kiri kiri...."
Ichi the Killer - 3 Disc Special Collectors Box [DVD]
Ichi the Killer - 3 Disc Special Collectors Box [DVD]
"Takashi Miike strikes again with another gorefest. An insane crime flick complete with torture and mutilations of various kinds."
Un Chien Andalou / L'Age d'Or [DVD]
Un Chien Andalou / L'Age d'Or [DVD]
"Un Chien Andalou is not really that much of an extreme film but it does, however, feature the first blast of extreme violence in the history of cinema."
Blood Feast [DVD]
Blood Feast [DVD]
"Certainly not the first gore film, but one of the first ultraviolent ones. The gore in this and other H.G. Lewis films still hold up decently today."
Shogun Assassin: Uncut Edition [DVD]
Shogun Assassin: Uncut Edition [DVD]
"An awesome wildly violent samurai flick made up from the first two Lone Wolf and Cub films. Not as violent by today's standards but exteme enough to end up on the infamous video nasties list."
The Street Fighter [DVD]
The Street Fighter [DVD]
"While tamer by today's standards, this is probably the goriest martial arts film produced up to that time and one of the first films to earn an X for violence alone."
The Exorcist [DVD] [1973]
The Exorcist [DVD] [1973]
"A fine horror film, more shocking than gory, but the blasphemous crucifix seqeunce earns it an easy spot on this list."
Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS [DVD] [1974]  [US Import] [NTSC]
Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS [DVD] [1974] [US Import] [NTSC]
"An exploitation masterpiece, essentially goes back and forth from being a horrifying Men Behind the Sun type expose on the Nazi's brutality to a black comedy involving Ilsa's insane sex drive."
Salo [DVD] [2001]
Salo [DVD] [2001]
"Vastly overrated and more perverted than gruesome, but still a very extreme and hard to watch film, particularly since it involves the intense abuse of children."
Profondo Rosso (Deep Red) [DVD] [1975]
Profondo Rosso (Deep Red) [DVD] [1975]
"Gialli masterpiece from Italian horror auteur Dario Argento featuring some of the most brutal murders ever filmed."
I Spit On Your Grave [1978] [DVD]
I Spit On Your Grave [1978] [DVD]
"Though I haven't seen this yet, from what I hear it is the most violent and brutal woman's revenge flick ever made."
City Of The Living Dead [DVD] [1981]
City Of The Living Dead [DVD] [1981]
"Probably Fulci's best film, featuring a lovely little sequence where a woman literally pukes her guts out."
Riki-Oh: The Story Of Ricky [DVD]
Riki-Oh: The Story Of Ricky [DVD]
"Though The Streetfighter was the first violent martial arts film, this is certainly the best and most extreme, like a Shaw Brothers film on crack mixed with ultraviolent anime and early Peter Jackson."
Reservoir Dogs (2 Disc Special Edition) [1993] [DVD]
Reservoir Dogs (2 Disc Special Edition) [1993] [DVD]
"Quentin Tarantino's brutal directoral debut. Gotta love the ear cutting sequence. Kill Bill manages to out violence this film but the violence here is a lot more disturbing."
Battle Royale - Two Disc Special Edition [DVD] [2001]
Battle Royale - Two Disc Special Edition [DVD] [2001]
"One of my favorite films. Not nearly as extreme as most of the films on this list, but it is far more disturbing than most films of this type in that it features a cast of young teenagers."
The Passion of the Christ [DVD] [2004]
The Passion of the Christ [DVD] [2004]
"The bloodiest mainstream film ever made. though in reality it is little more than an artfully photographed fundamentalist Christian snuff film."
Mondo Cane Collection [DVD] [1973] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Mondo Cane Collection [DVD] [1973] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"The complete works of Italian documentary filmmakers Jacopetti and Prosperti. Africa Addio and Addio Zio Tom in particular are absolutley brutal films."
