I cannot tell you how often we here at Dread Central are asked to recommend some good horror movies. Most of the time when we answer, we're met with a kind of stunned silence because 8 times out of 10 the same people asking have never heard of our recommendations.
Now, instead of just naming titles, we can direct the inquisitive chill seeker to a single book... Dr. AC Presents Hidden Horror.

The holidays are coming, kids! We recommend this be added to the shopping list Asap. If not... Santa Will Punish, and rightly so!

As a fan of extreme horror - both in tone and gross-outs - I have been keeping a close eye on The Profane Exhibit. The anthology of extreme horror will include segments directed by a collection of internationally renown filmmakers like Sergio Stivaletti (Dellamorte Dellamore), Coffin Joe (At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul), Yoshihiro Nishimura (Tokyo Gore Police), and Ruggero Deodato (Cannibal Holocaust) who returns to horror after over twenty years.
Each segment will be introduced by a different person, known collectively as the Gentlemen (regardless of gender), storytellers from important moments in horror history. Previously announced Gentlemen include Bai Ling (The Crow, Dumplings) and Tony Todd (Candyman). Joining that list are Laurence Harvey and Christina Lindberg.

Coffin Joe’s legacy all started with At Midnight I’ll Take Your Soul in 1964, the first film in a trilogy of terror-filled tales all starring the man himself. He often addresses the viewer directly in his films, bringing us into the screen and completely immersing us in the horrors of his world. What is truly remarkable about Coffin Joe’s films is threefold: he started making horror and exploitation very early on; he made extremely controversial films in a deeply religious (Catholic) country; and his mode of filmmaking was 100% Diy. Not only did Coffin Joe direct, write, and star in all of his films, but he also handled most »
