Video Nasties: progress update

As you can tell if you glance to the right-hand side of this blog (and if you can’t see anything, click the blog title at the top to get to the home page and see the right-hand column), I’ve conveniently listed all 72 “video nasty” films that were banned by the Director of Public Prosecutions in the UK.

This charming chap is from Zombie Flesh Eaters, which is one of the first nasties I'll be reviewing (probably next week at some point).

As I’ve said in a previous post, this blog was initially set up for two reasons: to review horror films and more off-the-wall non-horror films, and as a checklist where I can watch and review all 72 video nasties.

I’ve been gathering them for a few weeks now and I now have around 50 of the 72 films, with the aim of having them all by the end of the month. As I watch them and review them, I’ll fill in links to their reviews on the list so that, eventually, the whole list will consist of 72 orange links to reviews, at which point I’ll have done what I set out to do and all will be well with the world.

Of course, once I’ve reviewed them all the blog won’t die, I’ll continue to review non-nasty films to keep things interesting.
