Quotes Chief Inspector Roper : Sit down Pete. We got the lab results back, you're not gonna like it. During his confinement, Kemper had also managed to give a copy of the list to The Man.
Richard is a reporter with a morbid obsession for extreme pornography and snuff films. One day he finds a website offering real-time footage of people being attacked and tortured on commands issued by remote users.
Richard's escalating obsession with the website causes him to lose his job and, eventually, his house. While attempting to log into the site from an internet cafe , he receives an email from an anonymous sender who reveals the location of the house where the live footage is filmed.
Upon reaching the house, Richard is taken by the homeowner to the supposed location of the filming equipment, but instead he finds himself on the set of the snuff filming, where he is murdered by two masked men upon orders issued remotely by The Man.
As his body is found and identified, Richard is revealed to be Neilson's son. Determined to avenge his son and end the streak of killings, Neilson goes to the facility where Kemper is held and forces the staff to take him to Kemper's cell at gunpoint.
He shoots Kemper in a leg and arm, but is immobilised by reinforcement guards before he can kill him. The Man, disguised as one of the guards, uses a machete to kill the director of the facility and the remaining guards, and is now revealed to be Kemper's son.
Neilson shoots The Man, blowing half his head off, then delivers the fatal gunshot to Kemper. The Man however gets back on his feet and, with claws and tentacles emerging from the remaining half of his head, supposedly kills Neilson off-camera.
Cradle of Fear has a chequered release history. Aside from the festival and convention circuit, the film never saw a cinema screen, and was released straight to video.
The UK distributors initially made it available as a mail order VHS title, on the grounds that this would allow the release of an uncut and unrated version, posted out from Europe and circumventing the BBFC the assumption being that the BBFC would not pass the film without significant alterations.
In the HMV chain signed an agreement with Pragmatic Pictures for UK distribution of the DVD version, which subsequently entered HMV's DVD Top 10 chart.
Adam Tyner from DVD Talk gave the film a mixed review stating that knowing that each character would meet their demise got in the way of any suspense.

View All Critic Reviews 2. See Movies in Theaters. This tragedy reminds me of the films Troma puts out. Only I enjoy Troma films because they're supposed to be cheap and outrageously funny.
Cradle Of Fear is supposed to be a dark and frightning film. Unfortunately it's not scary but laughable. Worst of all the film is far too long for its own good.
At over 2 hours it's about minutes too long for a movie with no major plot or story behind it. Summary The film is low budget not a crime as I like quite a few low budget flicks and it shows.
The acting is stiff, unbelievable, and many times almost monotone. The dialouge itself creates some of the poor acting. I could not imaging using the work Fu you get the idea as many times in one week as the inspector does in 15 minutes.
As pointed out previously by another reviewer Tarintino this guy ain't. Hell Lloyd Kaufman of Troma films looks like a master compared to Chandon.
The effects are just plain bad. Prosthetics that look like they were bought at a nickel and dime store.
Blood that appears black are we killing humans or embalmed corpses , and over use of blood the human body does not contain 50 gallons of blood, and unlike Shogun Assassin this effect is not used in an artistic manner.
CGI that's reminiscent of The Last Starfighter which looked great in it's day, but pales in comparrison to many PC games these days , and is used out of place in many instances.
Poor video quality. For a movie shot mostly at night and in the dark, it's important to use good film stock and a good low lite camera.
I guess Chandon forgot that seeing the movie helps alot. Too serious for it's own good. If I wanted to laugh I would have popped in Braindead aka Dead Alive or Toxic Avenger.
While it's not heavy on plot, it's not the joke that Cradle Of Fear is. Should you want a more twisting gothic, yet bloody work check out some of Dario Argento's work.
Suspiria, Tenebre, and Opera come to mind as some of Argentos better films, although I've yet to see one I did not like. I think for your own true opinions of this film you should ignore the comments and make your own verdict by actually going to watch it.
In my opinion I think that it is a clever story line, being a fan of cradle of filth I like the soundtrack and the actor the man.
Instead of ordinary horror films, cradle of fear has 4 different stories all linked by one theme, so f you don't like a part of it, there is a lot more in the film.
I think some o the scenes are far-fetched but overall it's a film for someone who has an imagination I think the film was designed for young horror fans and overall it delivers: bring you a sickening fear.
Avoid at all costs ProfessorPeach 31 July I just saw the DVD of this and I belive it to be the biggest waste of aluminium and polycarbonate issued in years.
Now, let me get this straight: I love low-budget films. I love really gory, gross-out films. I love horror anthologies. I also used to be a goth for several years.
Sadly, this film does a grave disservice to all of the above no pun intended. The film was produced on DV and therefore looks home-made.
The fact that the budget didn't extend to getting it transferred to film says a lot. Sure, there's nothing that says films can't be low-budget and many people have made some excellent pieces using little more than a home DV camera.
The difference is that most people don't usually try and pass them off as feature films. The plot attempts to tie four small stories into some kind of cohesive whole, but the fact is that most of these segments don't really make much sense.
Only the "sick room" plot holds your attention and looks as if it might be going somewhere interesting, but then it spectacularly drops the ball with the sub-Twilight Zone predictability of its denouement.
The dialogue is a low point amongst a sea of low points. Expletives are clumsily dropped into scenes, giving the impression of the writer somehow trying to prove how grown-up the film is.
Acting throughout is mostly appalling. I mean, really bad. The usual-suspect rent-a-goths Emily Booth and Eileen Daly give the type of performances that will see them typecast in this kind of tripe until they no longer look good semi-naked.
As for Dani Filth, his virtually-silent role merely gives him the opportunity to carry over his stage persona and- if possible- look an even bigger berk than usual.
As for the effects- well, if indeed Creature FX really were involved, then I can't see that they got paid more than twenty quid for their contribution.
There is shocking gore, yes, but only shockingly bad. It almost made me laugh, but I was so depressed by the rest of the experience I couldn't raise a smile.
Oh, and the CGI is truly, deeply, totally unspeakable. This is not one of those films that's so bad it's good, so don't get taken in by that line of reasoning.
If this describes you, you'll probably love this film. If it doesn't, then don't insult your own intelligence and just walk away Cradle of Fear is an anthology of icky tales that revolves around a police detective, an imprisoned madman, and "The Man" played by Dani Filth, frontman for Cradle of Filth.
Although the stories are meant to tie in together by using wraparound characters, they don't. Some of the stories don't even make sense on their own.
However, the first story is quite good and graphic, but it's all downhill from there. The remaining tales just fail to generate any feelings out of me because there is no logic.
There's lots of gore throughout, just not enough real story. That's the film's downfall and that's why I'm giving it a negative review.
I will say this for the movie, it is undeniably horror. The lengths London filmmaker Alex Chandon will go to shock you will, well, shock you.
I like gore. I love gore when it serves the purpose of the story. But I hate mindless gore. That's what the majority of the film is, not to mention pretty disgusting.
Cradle of Fear is a gorehound's wet dream, but I desire a little bit more. This movie has a few things going for it right off the bat.
Having Dani Filth as a lead actor is automatically going to make some people like this movie. Admittedly, I love Cradle of Filth and listened to the soundtrack to this movie long before I watched it.
Dani Filth is a very recognizable character and makes for a great lead. The independent filming style of the movie is great for the creepy factor.
There are some GORGEOUS actresses in this movie. For being low budget, the special effects weren't bad either. The ways that people died were very creative and nightmarish.
Now on to the cons. There is VERY little talking throughout this whole movie, thus making for very little as far as character development.
It's hard to fear for the lives of limp, static characters. When there was a little talking, the F bomb was abundant, popping up in random places.
Yes, I understand people swear but it seems like a preteen boy scripted this and thought himself cool for including all the language.
The storyline, what I could make out of it, was pretty good although many parts are left dangling and the lack of conversation leaves one often wondering what's happening.
In the end, Cradle of Fear is like a porno for people who love sex and violence, but like a porno trying to pull of a storyline, it just doesn't work too well.
Rent it though, if you're a morbid person looking to sate your blood and flesh appetite. Coventry 4 December First of all, it's a mess because of all the gruesome and extremely violent scenes.
Your wildest imagination doesn't even come close to some of the explicitly shown scenes here. Entire parts of this movie are just plain sick, disgusting, offensive, brutal and they bring you close to puking your guts out.
Now, I love horror movies and I am very 'pro-violence', but I do think that it has to lead somewhere!! Is that too much to ask?
