In 1976, Montreal filmmaker Denis Héroux - future director of THE UNCANNY and Oscar®-nominated producer of ATLANTIC CITY - adapted the true story of Chicago mass murderer Richard Speck to war-torn Belfast, where a disturbed Vietnam vet drifter (Mathieu Carrière of MALPERTUIS and BILITIS fame) brutalizes a dorm full of student nurses. Re-edited by its video distributor and released as NAKED MASSACRE, Héroux's harrowing director's cut has remained unseen in America until now. Debra Berger (THE INGLORIOUS BASTARDS), Leonora Fani (GIALLO IN VENICE), Christine Boisson (EMMANUELLE), Ely Galleani (BABA YAGA) and Carole Laure (SWEET MOVIE) co-star in this "uncompromising and unfathomably grim work of art" (Video Basement), scanned in 2K from an uncut 35mm print discovered in The National Archives of Canada.

Press Quotes

'TRULY INTENSE AND SHOCKING... A nightmarish trip into the heart of human darkness that will haunt your mind for a good while.'

     —Cinematic Shocks

'DEPRAVED AND DEMENTED... This sick little number features a strong lead performance, a provocative statement and excellent direction.'

     —Grindhouse Database

Born for Hell suggests that its titular location isn't just a description of war, but of all sorts of nefarious human behavior, and the film almost pulls everything off. There are a number of rather interesting elements at play... Cain is well written, and Carrière brings a chilling authenticity to the character.


Entirely made up of moment to moment tension that is only relieved by an onslaught of nonstop terrors, Born For Hell is a home invasion horror that is a must see and also feels like a cautionary tale.
