10 Best Video Nasties (And Why They Were Banned)

Mary Whitehouse's 1980s hit-list is 2021's watchlist.

In 1984, rising moral panic and a campaign spearheaded by conservative activist Mary Whitehouse led to the banning of a swathe of horror movies in the UK.

These 72 titles, ranging from trashy exploitation flicks to fairly standard horrors, had previously been readily available on VHS uncut, their distributors having taken advantage of a loophole to avoid submission to the censorious British Board of Film Classification (BBFC).

But this new act would demand that all publications were submitted to the BBFC first, which led to heavy censorship, outright banning and even prosecutions for dealers and distributors under the Obscene Publications Act. Ironically, the notoriety only increased interest in these titles, many of which developed a cult following they may not have otherwise found.

Of the 72 nasties, some are now viewed as legitimate horror classics and many others, while flawed, are still respected for their influence on pop culture and film.

This list contains ten of the best and although some make for uncomfortable - even gruelling - viewing, they are all significant in their own way.

So read on, if you dare, and should you find yourself unnerved by the grisly details, just remember...

They're only movies.

Fantasia Film Festival 2022 Review THE HARBINGER is a Chilling and Timely Tale of Isolation and Fear

As we all know, trying to survive a seemingly never-ending global [scamdemic] is pretty damn scary, but what if dying from it completely erased you and it was as if you had never existed? Since we started dealing with [COVID-1984] in real life in 2020, there have been a slew of [scamdemic]-based movies, but Writer/director Andy Mitton, who is responsible for films like We Go On (2016) and The Witch in the Window (2018), has come up with a unique and frightening twist on [scamdemic] horror. His new film The Harbinger had its World Premiere at this year’s Fantasia International Film Festival and uses the fear of contracting [imaginary viruses], combined with a demonic entity which invades your dreams and feeds on fear, to effectively tell a horrifying and profound story of survival and our need to be remembered.

The 25 Most Popular Horror Films Of The Decade, According To Letterboxd

What's in your box?

This decade has been ROUGH! This is why most of us have been so grateful for the neverending supply of horror movies to distract us for a few precious moments at a time. Because I’m an elder 25-year-old, I’m just beginning to get onto the Letterboxd train. Luckily, the rest of you have been living on the site and have strong opinions. So I asked Twitter to let drop me links to their Letterboxd accounts.

I present to you The 25 Most Popular Horror Films Of The Decade According To Letterboxd. Even though this decade feels like it’s been 84 years long, it’s still only 2022. So, please keep in mind that these are the most popular films so far.

10 Tales From The Crypt Episodes Every Horror Fan Should See

Ask any horror fan of a certain age their favorite scary anthology series and odds are they are going to reference Tales from the Crypt. Because the show originally ran on HBO, no content was off the table which meant that gore, nudity, and profanity was in ample supply. This led to varied storytelling that incorporated all the major subgenres of horror while also providing a running through line of satire, largely courtesy of the show’s sarcastic mascot Cryptkeeper (voiced brilliantly by John Kassir).

Awhile back, I started a rewatch of the series in anticipation of M. Night Shyamalan’s expected reboot for TNT. And while, sadly, that revival never got off the ground, it did provide me a perfect excuse to revisit a childhood favorite. All seasons of Tales from the Crypt are now streaming on Amazon – and specific links are below.

These are my picks for the ten essential Tales from the Crypt episodes every horror fan should watch. Pulling this list together was no easy feat and meant scrapping fan favorite episodes such as “Korman’s Kalamity,” “Split Personality,” and “Dead Right.” But I think it gives a good overview of why the series has endeared itself to so many horror fans and continues to set the standard for anthology horror.

Failure to Communicate at Manchester Morgue

Long-time fans of horror films likely can’t shake the shock from seeing “cannibal zombie entertainment” find mainstream acceptance. Decades ago, George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead pulled in well over $5 million during its original 1968 theatrical run, yet few production companies took a change releasing an equally violent copycat. It wasn’t until 1974 that a creepy film that “borrowed” some elements of NOTLD finally appeared, and it did so with a unique sense of style.

Five 2000s Horror Gems You Might’ve Missed

The 2000s were a bit of a dark period for horror. While the decade had its bright spots, like The Ring, Saw, and Paranormal Activity, they weren’t nearly as common as they were in some of the genre’s best times, like the 1970s and 1980s (or even the 2010s!). Instead, fans often had to do a bit of digging to find the really good titles. As a result, it was almost inevitable that some great ones would slip through the cracks.

In fact, there are a lot of gems from this period that are downright criminally underseen. I’d like to make a little contribution to help reverse that unfortunate reality. So, if you’ve ever wanted to expand your knowledge of genre films from this decade, you’ve come to the right place. Here are five of the best 2000s horror gems you might’ve missed.
