LOST CANNIBAL WORLD (1977)


Directed by Ruggero Deodato (Later responsible for bringing us all Cannibal Holocaust) Lost Cannibal World aslo known as Ultimo Mondo Cannibale follows the misfortunes of a group of prospectors who's plane goes down in the jungle. Not sure exactly where they went down (possibly Indonesia / PNG) but either way they find themselves in a world of pain when they realise they've gone down in a jungle inhabited by cannibals. The groups pilot and assistant are killed by natives and remaining members are captured by the natives.

The gore you'd expect from the creator of Cannibal Holocaust is all too present some horrific scenes, tho not as intense as Cannibal Holocaust are present in this film so again it's not for the faint of heart or those offended by nudity.

Shot in the same style of the Cannibal movies at the time this is raw and confronting and the gore is very realistic. All in all a cool watch and is more or less a precursor to the Cannibal Holocaust movie, and has a very similar feel, and would appeal to the same crowd of people.

Someone has been kind enough to upload the entire movie onto Youtube so for your viewing pleasure here's the full version!

SALO (120 DAYS OF SODOM)

One of the most (if not, MOST) disturbing films ever made. I guess it depends on what offends you, but its right up there with the Human Centipede and Cannibal Holocaust for all round sickness. Based loosely on the Marquis De Sade's book 120 Day of Sodom this is, I guess an adaptation of that book but set in 1949 under Mussolini's rule of Italy.

This film itself outlines the cruelty inflicted on a bunch of teenagers kidnapped, tortured and molested for months by ruling members of the Italian aristocratic set, or ''libertines" as they are referred to. It is sick, depraved and filthy, in fact it is the only film I've not been able to watch in one sitting due to the cruelty and sexual sadism inflicted on said teenagers.

It was widely praised by film critics in its time but even more widely banned by the world at large... oddly enough the director Pasolini was murdered a few months before its release. It is available now on DVD/BR but I'd assume it would take some work to find it. Be warned though, it's a hard one to watch, a litany of human perversion and sadism if you will.


Is this film just sadistic filth? Or a film with artistic merit that needed to be made???..... I'm not sure .. Personally I'd be leaning on the side of filth but its a free world I guess, but it leaves me with a feeling that I've seen something that should not ave been seen. Check out preview before you watch the entire film.

VISUAL DARKNESS -ART BY MIKE HRUBOVCAK.


VISUALDARKNESS® :: The Artwork of MIKE HRUBOVCAK


Here's an interesting find.... if you like your art bloody, disgusting and morbid with some strong occult overtones this is for you. This guy is pure talent and the technical proficiency with which he creates is nothing short of amazing. He's done some high profile cover art for bands like "Six Feet Under" and "Sinister" and even finds time to sing for American death metal band "Monstrosity"

Sit back, crack a coldie (by which I mean a beer.... not a corpse) and let the slide show rip. You'll be amazed
