Absurd (1981) review

27 August 2014 11:14 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Chris Wright,

Absurd” (1981)

Directed By: Joe D'Amato (As Peter Newman)

Written By: George Eastman

Starring: George Eastman (Mikos), Annie Belle (Emily), Charles Borromel (Sergeant Engleman), Katya Berger (Katia Bennett), Kasimir (Willy Bennett), Hanja Kochansky (Carol), Ian Danby (Ian Bennett), Ted Rusoff (Dr. Kramer), Edmund Purdom (Father), Cindy Leadbetter (Peggy), Lucia Ramirez (Angela), Michele Soavi (Biker), Martin Sorrentino (Deputy), Goffredo Unger (Machine Shop Owner)

Absurd” is definitely absurd. This movie is truly grotesque at times. Joe D’Amato’s movies do not shy away from extremely gory moments. This Italian film is listed among the 39 prosecuted films listed on the British “video nasty” list that were banned entirely for graphic content. This film is under various names. In America, Wizard Video released a VHS big box with a new label called “Monster Hunter.” In some countries it was tacked on to the “Zombi” label as “Zombi 6: Monster Hunter. »

Classic Goblin Horror Soundtracks Now Available on Vinyl

20 February 2014 10:30 AM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Zombi) and Suspiria, as well as scores to Argento's Tenebrae (not “legally” a Goblin release, but featuring founding trio Claudio Simonetti, Fabio Pignatelli and Massimo Morante), Profondo Rosso and Non Ho Sonno, »
