    video nasties, some are good and fun to watch (The Evil Dead) some are horribly bad (Snuff) but we love them, extreme over-the-top gore, terrible acting, and gratuitous nudity.

    so now what is your all time favorite video nasty??

    (i apologize if your favorite is not listed here there are 74 films, and i only have 19 spots, so click in the "other" box and list below what your favorite is)

    It's really a toss up for me-Evil Dead is one of my all time favorites, but I love Night Of The Demon and bigfoot themed films in general. I voted the underdog and went with NOTD. I also love Zombi 2 and The Beyond, the rest I can live without.

    The Evil Dead for me. I've also always enjoyed The Toolbox Murders quite a lot.

    I think it speaks volumes about that whole era when Don't Go in the Woods is something you consider to be too disturbing and having no redeeming value for the peon masses.

    Actually, what's REALLY ironic is that the film IS disturbing and DOESN'T have any redeeming values, but they banned it for the violence and gave it a bit too much credit. Seems funny to me.

    I voted Evil Dead with Zombi 2 a close second.

    I almost voted for Toolbox Murders.

    I'm probably off base but some of these films I wouldn't count as video nasties. I've always considered that term to describe sleazy and/or graphically disturbing films. Evil Dead has over the top gore but it's all in fun, IMO, and doesn't really fit into that category. Toolbox Murders is sleazy, Cannibal Holocaust is disturbing, etc.

    Again, just my opinion.

    Well, everyone is entitled to an opinion. ;)

    However, no-one can truly pick and choose what is, and what is not, a Video Nasty. It's a list of films that fell foul of the law in the UK (39 titles were prosecuted), and as such, the list is complete and can't be changed. ;)

    Well, films like The Burning, Evil Dead, The Beyond and Zombie 2 are my favorites, but as far as a "Nasty" film goes Island of Death definitely fits into that category!

    There are still a fair amount of these I haven't seen, but most I've seen I liked (The Driller Killer, Unsane, Last House, etc.) but the real winner here and I think one of the best acted and directed exploitation sleazefests of all time has to be...I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE. It's one of my obsessions.

    Off the ones listed on the poll, I had to vote for Driller Killer. It's odd, it's twisted, it's mean, and it has some kick-ass music.

    Also considered voting for:
    Cannibal Holocaust
    I Spit on Your Grave
    The Toolbox Murders
    Antropophagus
    ...and a few that didn't make the poll.

    The Toolbox Murders. It screams sleaze and nastiness.

    Cannibal Holocaust. The only movie on this list that truly shocked me at parts. Granted I haven't seen every title listed but still. Really dig other titles like The Beyond and a few others.

    tenebre is one of my favorites without even seeing the category of the poll... i havent seen absurd yet, still waiting for a good release like the anthropophagus disc. the youtube footage of it looks promising in a fall asleep for 20 minutes, wake up for 10 seconds of gore, repeat, sort of way.
