I received numerous film submissions from Bloody Disgusting readers, who apparently peruse film sites by day, only to don their director robes at night so they can craft sickeningly awesome short films.

This place acts as home for hookers, drug addicts and one Mr. Sanjay; owner and proprietor. Sanjay’s a man of very few, if any ethics and he’s not exactly a presence worth pulling for.

When the movie version of Baxter came out in 1989, it went directly to the art houses. Years later the video version was consigned to the “foreign language” section of most video stores as the move was produced in France. I’ve seen it listed as a dark comedy, psychological thriller etc. , since the video release. It has since appeared on DVD with a cover so obnoxious I refuse to duplicate it. What does this all mean?

Horror Movie Version by Jérôme Boivin.
