Adam Rehmeier goes west with Save A Bullet For Me

By Ben Bussey When the director of The Bunny Game tells you his next movie will make his debut look like Mary Poppins, you tend to sit up and pay attention. That’s just the message I recieved in my inbox earlier, along with the first word on Save A Bullet For Me, which writer-director Adam [...]

Review: Low (2011)

Review by Annie Riordan “A-ha! The timeless wonder of the English countryside.” ~ Rik Mayall True horror doesn’t always bloom within the darkest shadows of the night, nor does it require the ominous herald of a thunderstorm. Sometimes, the most harrowing sidesteps into horror occur beneath the bright light of midday, when there are no [...]

Happy Birthday Brutal As Hell! Now We Are Five…

By Annie Riordan Truth: I don’t really think that my writing style is at all special and/or noteworthy. I’ve never taken a single class in either journalism or media studies. I cuss too much, am incredibly opinionated and rude, and rely too heavily on grade school insults. So when Marc Patterson – my longtime friend [...]

Film Review: Jonas (2013)

Review by Nia Edwards-Behi I’ve almost no doubt that there are very few genre fans – particularly those who frequent this website – who haven’t heard of The Bunny Game. Adam Rehmeier’s first feature film was a collaboration with the performance artist Rodleen Getsic, a stark and brutal examination of suffering and of release. The [...]

Contest: Win A Signed Blu-ray of ‘The Bunny Game’

by Marc Patterson Adam Rehmeier’s The Bunny Game has stirred up the hornet’s nest in the world of horror. Some love it while others loathe it. None stand indifferent. Personally speaking, while I’m extremely pro-Bunny Game I’m also pro-polarization. The worst crime a film can commit is to be forgettable. Some think The Bunny Game [...]

‘The Bunny Game’ – Official Blu-ray Specs and Cover Art

by Marc An especially cool surprise hit my inbox today when Autonomy Pictures released the official Blu-ray specs and cover art for the July 17, 2012 release of Adam Rehmeier’s The Bunny Game. A surprise because we got a quote on the cover the disc! I’m going to dispense with the preliminary’s though and get [...]

‘The Bunny Game’ – First Teaser Poster Emerges

by Marc Patterson Autonomy Pictures isn’t fucking around, mincing words, or pulling punches. They’ve unveiled the first teaser poster for The Bunny Game and it really cuts to the chase, graphically giving would-be viewers a real glimpse into the film’s intensity. While generally speaking I do like it, my first thought was that it remains [...]

‘The Bunny Game’ Gets Uncut Distro in the US

by Marc Patterson On Friday I got the best news of the year delivered to my inbox. The Bunny Game, a film we’ve long supported here at BrutalAsHell.com, has landed US distribution. The official email came from Autonomy Pictures, a new label in the world of horror, which is being led by producer Derek Curl [...]

Marc’s Favorite Films of 2011

by Marc Patterson In a few hours 2011 will be ancient history. I have to admit, I thought it was a damn fine year for horror. While horror at the box office seemed to be awfully underwhelming the stuff that was coming out direct-to-video and through VOD was astonishing. I touched on how 2011 would [...]

Interview: Adam Rehmeier Speaks Out on the BBFC’s Ban of ‘The Bunny Game’

Interview by Aled Ll Jones of MovieDromeDVD.com Editor’s Introduction: Since we first watched The Bunny Game earlier this year in February we’ve become fairly good friends with the film’s director, Adam Rehmeier. We’re big supporters of his independently made artistic vision and in the past have taken the opportunity to speak at length with both [...]

The BBFC Do It Again: ‘The Bunny Game’ Banned in the UK (UPDATED)

by Ben Bussey. I must say, this one doesn’t come as too much of a shock. Fresh from banning The Human Centipede 2 and then passing it in a censored version, the BBFC have refused a certificate to The Bunny Game. Adam Reheimer’s film (reviewed here by Annie), which has been picked up for UK distribution [...]

The Return of PollyGrind!

It’s been called “the key festival for indie cult filmmakers to land distribution deals.” Its founder and programmer has been called the “new champion of unabashed B-movie sleaze.” Those praises might seem a bit outlandish, but with the official announcement of the PollyGrind Film Festival’s schedule, it’s easy to see where they come from. Chad [...]

‘The Bunny Game’ Invades the UK

by Marc Patterson I don’t know what’s wrong with US based distro companies that they can’t make a move to take a chance on something slightly different, but maybe it’s up to the UK to take the bull by the horns and lead the way. It’s with a bit of surprise that we announce Trinity [...]

New ‘Jonas’ Teaser Trailer from Adam Rehmeier is F**kin Creepy

by Marc Patterson I’m thinking that perhaps my headline said everything I needed to say about this teaser trailer. Jonas is a continuation film based in the same universe as The Bunny Game. The Bunny Game is a psychologically devastating film garnering some rather serious attention from the horror community, but has yet to roll [...]

The Bunny Game: An Ecstatic Vision Quest of Torture, Death, and Rebirth

The Bunny Game: An Ecstatic Vision Quest of Torture, Death, and Rebirth by Marc Patterson There is little debate raised against the fact that the French have firmly embedded themselves as trailblazers of modern extreme horror. This loose cinematic movement of sorts has even been dubbed “The Extreme Wave” by many a genre fan and [...]
