Ditched delivers stomach-churning exploitation whilst flirting thematically with social-horror, but it is the classic “fuck you” ending that will linger with you long after the closing credits; feeling like a .44 caliber projectile piercing your brain.
Pacific Northwest. 1983 AD. Outsiders Red Miller and Mandy Bloom lead a loving and peaceful existence. When their pine-scented haven is savagely destroyed by a cult led by the sadistic Jeremiah Sand, Red is catapulted into a phantasmagoric journey filled with bloody vengeance and laced with fire. Dazzler Media presents Mandy on Limited Edition Blu-ray, 24th May; including a slipcase and poster featuring classic artwork, and a 40-page soft cover book with new essays by Tim Murray.
“I’m your God now!”
If you are looking for a movie to watch, which combines the best of the golden days of exploitation with modern sensibilities, may I suggest Ravage? First time director, Teddy Grennan takes a common horror theme and elevates it to the sublime, with the assistance of a first-class cast and superior photography.

40 years after the theatrical release of I Spit on Your Grave became one of the most depressing experiences of Roger Ebert’s life, Director Meir Zarchi has returned with a sequel so vile, so morally reprehensible, the new generation of film critics won’t be able to contain their stomach contents. Ladies and gentlemen, this is a new Day of the Woman! The ultimate day of terror!
“Before setting out on revenge, first dig two graves…and spit on one of them.”
A welcome throwback to classic hixploitation. If you were a fan of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Mother’s Day and the golden days of R&R movies, Ravage will bring you a ton of warm and fuzzy memories. From the effective score to the absolutely beautiful photography, director Teddy Grennan elevates a rather familiar narrative far above its starkly crude subject matter. Despite a few gaps in logic and plot, this is one of the few modern horror films that treats its Grand Guignol aspects with subtlety.
“Torture is the barometer of a nation’s creativity.”

Phil decides during his convalescence that he will use his newfound power for good and disrupt the corrupt corporate film interests that threaten the only things he’s ever loved: movies. The book explores the seedy underbelly of the Hollywood elites.

Skinner was made back in the days when there was only one medium for film – 35mm. So, the hope had been that at some point the movie would be finished and released upon the world via various movie theatres. But the path out into the world wasn’t smooth.
