What are your limits? 

Surely there are some types of horror movies that you will not watch.

Or are there? 

There has always been an audience for the disturbing and unsettling image. And there’s an intimate relationship between the violence and sensationalism shown in Underground Movies and the anxieties of our culture.

In this episode I discuss Exploitation Films and Extreme Horror: its history starting with Thomas Edison’s first experiments with the movie camera through the Grindhouse Era to Modern Horror Cinema.

And my fascination with the forbidden.
