I Spit On Your Grave (1978) - Meir Zarchi

Revenge horror is sometimes the most satisfying of the horror genre. The movies get you going and rooting for the protagonist. This movie doesn't do that. It just leaves you with your mouth hanging open. This grind-house picture, that reminds me of Hostel for some reason, that pushes all sorts of boundaries. The best way to describe this genre would be Exploitation Horror.

I Spit On Your Grave is a revenge horror movie about Jennifer Hills. A young girl that is gang raped by a group of locals while she is on vacation.

Broken (1993) - Peter Christopherson

Trent Reznor and directro Peter Christopherson are some really sick people. Broken is one of the most disgusting short films (or long form music videos) that I have seen. The film pieces together songs and videos from the Nine Inch Nails album of the same name.

The movies realistic feel is what has kept it from getting an official release. From the opening with Pinion to the end of the short with Gave Up, this is one of the coolest music videos that i have seen in a long time. Peter Christopherson is a veteran who has worked with various artists ranging from Easure to Hanson and everyone in between.

The creativeness shown behind the camera is fun, he brings a lot of fresh ideas out. The video has a main story line with Nine Inch Nails videos interlaced. The main plot line follows a man who abducts a jogger and ties him up in a small room, where he tortures him and eventually kills him, consuming some of the parts. The film feels so real when you watch it and it is very cringe worthy.…
