Ugly, The

1997 / d. Scott Reynolds
Inventive Aussie thriller that owes much of its popularity to its inclusion on the Boogeymen DVD. Timid sociopath and serial murderer Simon Cartwright specifically requests psychologist Dr. Karen Schumaker to evaluate his mental condition. The film then explores the years leading up to his incarceration: everything from his abuse-filled childhood to his gruesome series of straight-razor killings. Stylish black blood, sterile blue lighting, and a compelling story make this one highly recommended.

Co-editor of The Blood Theatre, Matthew T. is also an artist who plays a mean piano and enjoys preparing for the zombie apocalypse.
