Extreme Horror Films: they are the "Elephant in the Room" for horror fans.

These films push the limits of the viewer to such the extent that they even divide the horror community on whether they go too far.

A large majority of these films have little, or no, socially redeeming value.

And yet...

There are a few extreme films that use the violence, and obscenity, and nihilism to create something that defies expectations and becomes something horrible/beautiful.

For those who dare to watch.

Guest Derrick Carey, from the Astro Radio Z podcast (and a horror film director himself), joins us to discuss some Extreme Horror films that aren't easy to dismiss...or forget.

I hope you enjoy the episode.
