Infamy Lasts Forever: Controversial Films Month

There are films out there that have received attention due to their controversial nature, be it A Serbian Film‘s use of sex and violence, Martyrs’ use of extreme gore and sadism, and Nekromantik‘s approach to necrophilia. These films have shocked, disgusted, and repulsed audiences with their subject matter and this month, we take our turn with these infamous films.

Along with controversial films, we finish out the final month of summer with a look at the final blockbuster releases including an interview with David F. Sandberg, director of Annabelle: Creation, an author’s take on The Dark Tower, and female John Wick otherwise known as Atomic Blonde.
