Black Devil Doll (2007)

One of the worst and thus best movies of our generation. A convicted killer gets sentenced to death and his soul ends up inside a puppet. This is where things get interesting however! He goes on a rampage killing people and generally causing havoc.

A young lady finds herself hurled into an odyssey of forbidden sex, unspeakable violence and terrible acting after an evening dabbling in forbidden magic (take note Voldemort!). What started as a simple game has now become a fight for life! What is this evil that she has summoned from beyond? And why does it have a fro. Classic nonsense from a studio that can surely do more ludicrous stuff in the future!

Zombie Flesheaters (1979)

One of my favourite zombie flicks is here! I remember watching this movie and being absolutely enthralled with it. The bad acting, the gross effects and the alternative viewpoint on zombies from an Italian director rather than the US stalwart George A. Romero movies of the time.

In fact Zombie Flesheaters was called Zombi 2 in some regions in order to cash in on a supposed link to Night of the Living Dead. This was probably a pointless exercise as people were more than keen for any take on the zombie genre back in the day. Another interesting fact is that due to its appearance on the "Video Nasties" list in the UK and its subsequent banning in many countries its popularity grew exponentially. Indeed it is probably due to this that it now has cult classic status.

Braindead (1992)

If you haven't seen this movie and you are a horror movie fan or just into some seriously dark comedy be prepared! This movie takes gore to an over the top extreme. Often cited as the most gory movie of all time Peter Jackson's (yes that Peter Jackson) Braindead aka Dead Alive in some locations is a darkly comic tour de force.

Based on an overprotective mother who gets bitten by a Sumatran Rat Monkey in a zoo and then slowly transforms into a horrific zombie monster. Lionel her son meanwhile has to juggle a budding relationship with a local girl, his mothers failing health and a soon to be house full of zombies. Not to mention his lecherous old uncle who wants the family fortune. Enjoy!
