Yes, yes it’s Friday the 13th. Besides Halloween, this is everybody’s favourite scary day. There are so many ways to have fun with it (besides watching Jason slash his way from Camp Crystal Lake into outer space) that it’s easy to forget there are still truly fucked up people making really disturbing movies. Movies that you don’t want to, and probably shouldn’t watch.
Lately there has been a lot written about the shift from horror films to torture porn (ie Hostel and Captivity) and how this represents an unsettling shift in the public consciousness. But what about those movies that aren’t even made for mass consumption? Movies that despicably revel in the suffering of the mind, body and soul? Movies that thankfully will never see the light of day? What do they say about us? Probably that there is no hope and that we’re all doomed. But that’s not really news. So, if you think you’ve got the stomach, the guts and the cajones, check out August Underground’s Mordum
BUT BE WARNED!! This is extremely wretched, depraved, unsettling, sick and twisted stuff and not to be watched if you are merely curious, prone to heart failure or under 18. But if you think Jason Voorhees is a total pussy, we dare you to double click. Just don’t come crying to us afterwards.
