Never released in the UK. It w as screened though at the 1994 Eurofest in London

Summary Review

A short film wherein a man working in a morgue mutilates and defiles one of the corpses.

I must say that after years of collecting obscure titles from the world over, gore-hound classics to underground film noirs and black comedies, Nacho Cerdas short film Aftermath is probably the single most compelling picture I have ever seen.

It is easily the sickest film and most beautiful film at the same time. The special effects are better than anything Tom Savini could dream up, and the cinematography is comparable to some of the great contemporary films in American history.

I love this film because it is a beautiful drug for the senses. Visually it is breathtaking, and the absence of dialogue adds the perfect dramatic suspense and brings a stomach turning realism to the events portrayed. The most incredible aspect of the film however, is the incredible attention to detail in the sound department. Every pin-drop has been captured so perfectly it elevates the grandeur of this ambitious effort and penetrates the sickness that pervades throughout this story.

This is an absolutely sickening and disturbing masterpiece that provides more shocks that any Hong Kong CAT 3 film or any nasty 80s cult horror flick. It is also a beautifully photographed film with a big budget feel that is a must see for any aspiring film maker or film student.

Summary reviews: soft porn with a conscience

This series of erotic movies from the Japanese Nikkatsu Studios is collectively entitled "Angel Guts". The movies center around the theme of rape. Although they were meant to be exploitative, they do elicit more thoughtful insights on the subject than the genre would suppose. They portray rape as violent and brutish but they do not sensationalise or glorify it. All 5 movies end tragically, either in death or ruined lives. It's almost like soft-porn with a conscience. As soft-porn stories go, they are pretty interesting. My quibble here is with the censorship.

Although we do get scenes of sexual violence, there is absolutely no depiction of genitalia or penetration to conform with Japanese law. Where these inadvertently appear onscreen, they are digitally fogged away. To me this kind of censorship is ludicrous, laughable and totally unacceptable, especially in a DVD release that touts itself as a Collector's Edition. Even if it was censored in Japan, this DVD is an international version and we are not subject to Japanese laws. Why couldn't the producers have sourced for the original negatives? Why are we being foisted with censored prints? What we have left are some scenes of toplessness. Although it's unrated, it would probably merit an R-rating, mainly for the violence. Because it's meant to be erotica, there are some scenes included simply for titillation purposes. Some fairly kinky scenes include a girl using a condom

Submission to the BBFC and US release

Without a doubt in my mind ArtsMagic excelled and outdid themselves by collecting all five of Nikkatsu's officially produced "Angel Guts" films from 1978-1988; but they went further still by bringing them to us uncut. Having had difficulties submitting Red Classroom and Red Dizziness to the BBFC back in 2002 they decided to abandon plans for the UK market full stop, because they knew they wouldn't be able to release the best versions that they could. Their attentions turned and stayed stateside, and despite some hurdles along the way they managed to put together a fine package, with the help of Japanese enthusiast Jasper Sharp.

It is hard to know why Bill Zebub films have never been released. It could be down to the uncommercial quality, but maybe also it could be down to the censor-baiting content.
Summary Review: WTF

Hailed as having the most WTF moments in movie history Antfarm Dickhole is the story of rampaging army ants that have nested inside a living human body. The unwilling host discovers that when bullies attack him, the ants defend their nest.

The plot is original and hilarious. It has lots of people dying, and lots of naked women. It has one of the most obvious and offensive titles ever. The dialogue is very well written, the acting is poor acting, and the script is strange. Brilliant!

Summary Review: Blast form the Past

This is another lost oddity form the past - whether this is a good thing or not is highly debatable. A pseudo-documentary regarding the sexual benefits of reefer on the average Dick and Jane and its legal history in the U.S., along with crucial information about how to roll a joint for newbies and even grow, cultivate and harvest plants for the degenerate pot fiends among us, all dished up in a casserole of grindhouse sex rife with nudity that's more laughable than erotic.

Somehow never seems to have made it to Britain

August Underground is a 2001 US horror by Fred Vogel
Starring Kyle Dealman, Casey Eganey and Dan Friedman Melon Farmers link IMDb

Tagline: The sickest film ever made. Unsurprisingly neither this, or its two sequels have ever been considered for UK release. The film was released uncut and MPAA Unrated in the US.
From a review on Hollywood's Burning : A difficult movie

August Underground is a new independent film from a pair of Pittsburgh filmmakers who took that one sequence from Henry and expanded it to feature-length. The filmmakers behind August Underground posit a very real scenario that a pair of completely morally bankrupt young men, who could very well live next door to any of us, get a hold of a video camera and start to tape their crimes. Through the camera-eye, we see The Big Guy rape, bludgeon, terrify, humiliate a half-dozen men and women. The Cameraman participates as far as his free hand will allow, only dropping the camera once to give his friend a hand.

What becomes even more horrifying, as the film goes along, is that, as in Henry, these crimes were not committed just for the camera. The pair had been running rough-shod over others long before the 'record' button was pressed, but the camera is heightening the reality for them. The pair are totally believable, which makes it all the more chilling. They giggle when a female victim begs for her life as they beat and humiliate her. The Big Guy wretches at the stench in his basement, coming from the rotting blood and shit of his prey, vomits as he saws off the arms and legs of one guy who'd been dead a bit too long. The camera then becomes their constant companion, even after these opening scenes of depravity.

Don't be thrown off by the movie's low-tech look, either. This is intentional. Indeed, the filmmakers had originally designed the film to be seen as a fourth-generation dub, something you might find discarded on a b
us. They wanted viewers to think they'd stumbled onto a snuff film. The biggest problem they pair are going to encounter are the so-called "raincoat crowd". These are the viewers who want to live out their own misogynistic fantasies through movies, the ones that keep the sleaze-soft-core rape-n-murder people in business. It will be a while before August Underground is perceived as something other than exploitation. Once it is appreciated for the gut-wrenching a difficult movie that it is, then it will start to earn a following.
