3.0 out of 5 stars Horrible (The Uncut 'n' paste version) Nov. 11 2009
By B. D. Ansell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Joe D'amato's 'Horrible' finally arrives on DVD after years in the video nasty wilderness. Actually more commonly referred to as 'Absurd' in the UK or 'Monster Hunter' in the USA, Horrible is actually the French title of the film. Made as a cash in on the success of the notorious 'Anthropophagous the beast' but not a sequel as such although both star D'amato regular George Eastman as the killer. Absurd is actually not bad of it's type ditching the cannibal exploits of Anthro for a more conventional Slasher type flick. Eastman on the run after escaping an asylum impales himself on a spiked gate and ends up as a guinea pig for a new drug that regenerates body tissue which in turn makes him extra strong and seemingly impervious to anything other than a shot to the brain. Ok the stories a stinker and doesn't make a lick of sense but that's not what your paying for. Our resident psycho then goes on a killing spree drilling a nurse through the skull, using a bandsaw to give a hospital orderly a nice middle parting and most gloriously a long 7 minute sequence where he shoves a babysitters head in an oven and waits patiently for her face to fry. He meets his match in a couple of terrible child actors, one who stabs him in the eyes with a compass and eventually a young disabled girl who axes his head off (The 80's, gotta love em) There's the usual time filling sub plot of the cop on the killers tail and there's a renegade priest who on the original usa poster seemed to be the monster hunter referred to in the title (frankly, he's rubbish at it) D'amato's movie ended up on the uk's infamous video nastie's list so is ultimately going to be bought by loads of people needing to fill that gap in their collections and compared to most of the stuff on the list of 72 it's actually very entertaining. The acting is bad and it's typical Italian monster fare but it's paced well and the gore scenes are actually quite good especially the nasty oven scene. MYA's transfer is however not so hot as like alot of these lost classics the film has been sourced from different masters so although the bulk of the movie has been cleaned up quite well compared to the early Pre cert tapes there are several instances that have been sourced from VHS so you can instantly see a huge drop in quality, luckily it's only to a few odd scenes that seem to have no relevance to the movie and bearing in mind at one point it seemed this movie was going to languish in legal hell forever it's a small price to pay. Horrible (Absurd) is no classic but as a shining example of Italian gore pics from the early 80's is as good as you would expect it to be. Pointless but rather fun, loads of blood and bad acting but all the better for it and for the nasties completists another tick on the list.

4.0 out of 5 stars Joe D'Amato-Horrible Director Aug. 2 2009
By Stanley Runk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Horrible is Italy's answer to Silent Rage, only no Chuck Norris to save the day. In some places it's known as Anthropophagus 2, but aside from having the same star and director, it's not a sequel.
It's about a silent hulking killer(George Eastman of course!) running about making things terribly unpleasant for those he crosses. He's a bitch to kill since he's able to heal himself quickly. Some shady science experiment(overseen by a priest!) has made it possible for Eastman's blood to coagulate very fast, but it's also made him crazier. The only way to kill the brute is to destroy his brain. I'm no doctor and don't claim to have a bunch of medical knowledge, but simply having blood that coagulates quickly wouldn't just make you downright invincible, would it?
Anyway, Eastman is pursued by the priest who had a hand in the experiment. After injuring himself, being rushed to the hospital and escaping, Eastman goes wandering around and killing folks. The streets are nearly deserted as everyone is indoors glued to the screen for the big Rams/Steelers game.
Eastman ends up at the home where he was injured in the beginning of the film. From there, D'Amato seems very influenced by Carpenter's Halloween, as there are many scenes that feel inspired by that movie. Hell, there's even a young "Tommy Doyle"- type kid who is trying to warn everybody about the presence of the "Boogeyman", but no one believes him.
All in all, not a bad Italian horror film. Like Anthropophagus, it's slower paced. It's also not as gory as you'd believe it'd be. It has a few moments, but most of D'Amato's other horror films are gorier(except maybe Porno Holocaust, but then again, gore wasn't really the focus for that film).
Not the best work he's done, but certainly a must for D'Amato fans and Italian horror fans in general.
The MYA DVD is bare bones and featureless, but a good job is done in restoration. It's one of those deals where it was pieced together from different sources, so there are a few scenes that have a very washed out, grainly look to them, but thankfully there aren't all that many.

3.0 out of 5 stars Shades of Michael Myers? Aug. 22 2012
By William Amazzini - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Mya Communications has released the last thriller that Director Aristide Massaccesi aka Joe D'Amato made before his forays into Sci-Fi (ATOR L'INVINCIBILE) his 'CALIGULA' imitations (CALIGULA THE UNTOLD STORY and MESSALINA-ORGASMO IMPERIALE) and his soft and hard core porn films which took up the last of his years. Here we have 'ANTHROPOPHAGUS II' aka 'ROSSO SANGUE'-1981 but listed on the box as 'HORRIBLE' !?, a film which looks like it was rushed out to cash in on the Splatter film craze which erupted from the US releases of Director John Carpenter's 'HALLOWEEN'- 1978 and Director Sean S. Cunninghams's 'FRIDAY THE 13TH'-1980 themselves derivations (or in some instances) ripoffs of the Italian thriller or Giallo genre. Released as an unofficial sequel to D'Amato's previous hit 'ANTHROPOPHAGUS' aka 'THE GRIM REAPER'- 1980, it has actor Luigi Montifiori aka George Eastman playing a lumbering unstoppable monster supposedly created by scientists during a nuclear experiment gone wrong. Hollywood actor Edmond Purdom probably pining for the good old days plays a priest in pursuit of our monster carbon copying the Donald Pleasance role from the 'HALLOWEEN' franchise. The film has many enjoyable set pieces for gore hounds setting the film up into Lucio Fulci territory as the victims are dispatched in clever ways by Eastman's Michael Myers interpretation sans mask and has a great freeze frame image at the conclusion but fails as a whole because of its lack of budget. The credits list American names for the people behind the scenes but it is basically a one man show with D'Amato doing the Direction, Photography, and screenwriting along with actor Eastman. The music by Carlo Maria Cordio is a blatant rip off of themes by Goblin and Keith Emerson from their excursions with Director Dario Argento. Mya releases it in a nice 1.85 transfer but the print is culled from two different sources and a few scenes seem to be transferred from second generation VHS footage but doesn't distract from the proceedings. It also has the option of being viewed in English or Italian soundtracks but the Italian has no subtitles. An interesting failure, it does make for great midnight viewing and makes you yearn for those Mom and Pop VHS rentals of yore.

4.0 out of 5 stars I support any monster running around in pumas! Dec 28 2009
By Jennifer M. Hensley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Truly one of my favorite b-horror flicks! I've always known this flick to have titles such as: Absurd, Monster Hunter (the vhs I had was under this title), and Anthropophagus 2. i never knew this flick was under the title as, 'Zombie 6'. That's strange because I don't see it relating to the Zombie series at all. After watching 'Horrible' -aka- Anthropophagus 2, I began to wonder how in the world is it even connected to Anthropopahus, besides the two films using the same director (Joe D' Amato), and actor, (George Eastman), playing the same crazy-experiment-gone-wrong killer! That's really the only strong connection. Both films are AWESOME, in my opinion. The gore is shown more in 'Horrible' than in 'Anthropophagus', but the two films put out the same eerie vibe! 'Horrible' is most certainly needed in ones slasher collection! It's really its own movie. There are some similarities in this flick compared to 'Halloween 1&2', but I wouldn't go as far as to say that 'Horrible' is a rip-off. I am so sick of horror fans turning down a flick just because there happens to be certain scenes that resemble those of a more popular, well-respected flick! Anyway, try this flick out! It has a nice pace with very little slow parts! Again, George Eastman RULES as being a monstrous killer!!!
3.0 out of 5 stars Horrible Horrible Horrible Dec 5 2013

*** This comment contains spoilers ***

"Horrible" (Rosso sangue (1981)) is the HALLOWEEN-esque 'sequel' to 1981's insomniac's dream ANTHROPOPHAGOUS. This time around D'Amato brings to us a sense of pace, making Rosso sangue not much more enjoyable. The added gore (including an ultra-torturous scene involving an oven) and cool electronic music score is a nice bonus.

The story (or lack thereof) brings back George Eastman as our favorite cannibal, this time not on a Greek island, but somewhere in the US being hunted by a priest (of all people). During this, he somehow manages to spill his guts (again, but does not eat them) on an iron fence outside a house. Eastman is taken to a nearby hospital. There, he recovers, kills the doctor (gorily too I might say), hacks up a few others and then returns to the house where he had his 'accident', and proceeds to stalk the babysitter and kids residing there.

A bit boring at times (aren't all these italo-gore flix?) but Eastman's presence is overpowering and the end involving a 'vegetable' overcoming her disabilities to face the beast is fairly ironic.
