Asami Live

By Nia Edwards-Behi Closing up Asami August, here’s the concluding chapter of Nia’s three-part study of Asami’s work with Noboru Iguchi and Yoshihiro Nishimura; if you haven’t already, you might want to read parts one and two first. A film I confess I only found out about while researching this piece is The Ancient Dogoo […]

Blu-ray Review: The Town that Dreaded Sundown (1976)

Town That Dreaded Sundown

By Ben Bussey While I don’t want to suggest that my own personal horror movie knowledge and experience is representative of everyone (perish the thought), The Town That Dreaded Sundown is one of those films I’ve long been aware of but never actually seen, and I get the impression that’s true of quite a lot […]

Zombie All Nighter Grimm Up North

By Ben Bussey If you’re in the Manchester area and don’t care about getting any sleep on Saturday 5th September, I daresay there are worse places you could be than get yourself down to East Didsbury for twelve hours of flesh-ripping, bloodthirsty horror classics on the big screen, organised by the Grimm Up North team […]

Trailer for After Dark’s Bastard Definitely Looks Like It Was Conceived Out Of Wedlock

Posted on August 26, 2015 by Ben
Bastard

By Ben Bussey You give your film a title like Bastard, and that brings certain expectations. You imagine Rik Mayall screaming the title, prefaced with the words “you utter -“. You expect something big, hard and cool, because after there’s nothing bigger, harder and/or cooler than swearing. That’s why BAH is such a shitting great […]

TURBO_KID_DVD_3D

By Ben Bussey One of the most talked-about, eagerly anticipated films of the upcoming Film4 FrightFest has been Turbo Kid, a cartoonish 80s-style post-apocalyptic adventure that reportedly blows the roof off with its gore quota, from directorial trio François Simard, Anouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell. On the one hand, I do wonder if we’ve had […]

Houses October Built

By Ben Bussey Guess it’s been a little while since we’ve noticed distributors needlessly dumbing things down for the UK market, so we should be grateful for that. Doesn’t mean we won’t call them out on it when it does occur. Yes, The Houses that October Built – a Halloween-set found footage horror based around […]

Fear-LoathingCover

By Svetlana Fedotov Southeast Asia has never been one to shy away from trying new and interesting cuisine such as Korean Poo wine or the mayonnaise themed restaurant dead set in the heart of Tokyo, Japan. While perhaps a mild thrill compared to these two, the officially licensed DC Comics Superhero Café has started serving […]

Blu-ray Review: Videodrome (1983)

Videodrome - Arrow Video

By Nia Edwards-Behi Where do you start on a film like Videodrome? It’s a definitive work of one of modern cinema’s most interesting auteurs, a body horror ur-text, an iconic and a quotable cult film classic; it’s one of those films that everybody’s seen. Well, I hadn’t. The images associated with Videodrome make it one […]

Asami - Lust of the Dead (2)

By Ben Bussey And here’s where things start to get a bit tricky. One of the key reasons we love Japanese exploitation and splatter here at BAH is the genre’s willful disregard of conventional notions of taste and decency. Repulsive gore gags, shameless sexploitation, puerile toilet humour: these movies revel in all the sort of […]

Review: Blood Punch (2015)

Blood Punch - Bluff Road Productions, Midnight Releasing DVD

Review by Quin In the time that Blood Punch has played at various film festivals and theater screenings, the reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. Unfortunately, theater runs must come to an end and films then live on in digital format for personal viewing. It’s no big secret that the theater experience is usually way different […]

DVD Review: Fallen Soldiers (2015)

Fallen Soldiers - 101 Films DVD

By Ben Bussey The zombie-war movie crossover may not be an entirely new idea, but in the vast majority of instances these tend to centre on Nazi zombies. In case that’s getting a bit old (panzer) hat, how does the idea of Napoleonic zombies grab you? That’s the key idea behind new British microbudget horror/wartime […]

scouts-guide-to-the-zombie-apocalypse-01

By Ben Bussey I dunno about anyone else, but when I first heard there was going to be a Scouts Vs Zombies movie (and I believe that was the original title), I was anticipating something pretty mild and comparatively family-friendly, in a similar vein to my treasured lifelong favourite The Monster Squad. Well, I was […]

dreammachine (2)

By Ben Bussey We just got word of a new Japanese production called Dream Machine. Now in all frankness, the title and the video and images you see here represent pretty much the full extent of my knowledge of the film, beyond the very brief description we were given: “Like Un Chien Andalou,David lynch and […]
