Ginger Nuts of Horror
Dir. Arthur Cullipher, USA, 85 mins
Welcome back to Film Gutter, and today we're exploring new vistas and new waters, as we head back to the dark waters of the USA. I'd love to say it's going to be cosier and calmer than usual, but bearing in mind we have Headless as this week's offering I doubt that's going to be true. The movie purports to be a 'lost slasher' from the 70s – shot as a glorious homage to the era – and a feature that claims to be 'The most shocking film you've ever seen'. Well, Headless, we take that as fighting talk around these parts. So let's hop to it shall we?
Come on in, the water's lovely...

So, welcome back to another week of Film Gutter! We've never been afraid to wade into unfamiliar waters – after all, very often that's where the excitement lies. And as such, this week we're going distinctly European with this tri-country collaborative effort. France certainly has a fine reputation for harrowing extreme horror, so how will the Belgian-led offering Calvaire (The Ordeal) fare today? It's a move that has drawn distinctly mixed reviews in the decade since its release, so let's see what we make of it here...
Come on in, the water's shadowy...
Welcome back to Film Gutter, where the waters are distinctly murky this week. We're back to one of our favourite haunts, Canada – the nation which brought us the genuinely upsetting Thanatomorphose, among others – for another grim and grimy dip. The film we're exploring this time is Collar, the latest offering from Gutterballs director Ryan Nicholson and a suitably dark experience it is too.
