12 Extreme Horror Movies You Need To See Before You Die
4. Evil Dead Trap (1988)
Leave it to the Japanese, the only filmmakers more exuberant than the Italians, to make a sick and twisted movie that starts out like a run-of-the-mill slasher and ends with one of the most outrageous twists youve ever seen. Just like the 80s Italian gore films, you dont admire the proceedings for their logic and originality, but for the succession of startling set pieces set to a memorable score. When what purports to be a snuff film arrives on the desk of a ratings-hungry TV presenter, she and her crew journey out to the deserted army base shown on the tape, unaware that its home to a sicko with a penchant for torture porn. When these idiots decide to split up and wander off alone down dark corridors, thats when the movie shifts into high gear. The first to be toe-tagged (somewhat predictably) is the lascivious production assistant whos skewered by spikes that inexplicably burst through the walls and floor, a sequence sure to captivate fans of Argentos Suspiria. All thats missing are the black gloves.
