It was the team-up of the century in 1990 when the Italian auteur of excess Dario Argento made this double-feature compendium creeper with DAWN OF THE DEAD helmer George Romero! The result brings together the very best of the United States independent sector with the kingpin of things giallo - giving us the much-loved splatter shocker TWO EVIL EYES! The latest in 88 Films Italian line, Romero's outstanding opening salvo offers us an adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar", highlighting the sublime Scream Queen Adrienne Barbeau (THE FOG/ SWAMP THING) as a scheming widow seeking to exploit the estate of her terminally ill husband. Little does she know, however, that her husband is already ahead of the curve... and planning a little ghoulish vengeance of his own! For Dario Argento's Poe adaptation "The Black Cat", Harvey Keitel (RESERVOIR DOGS/ TAXI DRIVER) essays an eccentric photographer obsessed with death and dismay... although eventually his livelihood encourages him to embark on the ultimate crime. However, there is a super-sick sting in the tale that will leave the hapless camera-man literally hollowed-out from head to toe! We dare you to endure the gruesome and gruelling special effects of Tom Savini (DAY OF THE DEAD) and the provocative, spine-tingling soundtrack of Pino Donaggio (BODY DOUBLE) in this awe-inspiring frightener that is finally available to UK horror buffs in hair-raising HD...!!!

The Expendables 2 4K
The Expendables are back in a sequel that J. Rentilly of MensHealth.com calls "a high-octane" adventure with non-stop action!" The team signs on for a mission that looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But things quickly go wrong, and one of their own is killed by a psychotic terrorist-for-hire. Hell-bent on payback, they cut a swath of destruction through enemy territory and wreak havoc upon their opponents. In the midst of the mayhem, they must also shut down an unexpected threat in the nick of time - preventing five tons of weapons-grade plutonium from falling into the wrong hands.

Dead American Woman - The DVD debut of the never before seen Director's Cut.

Massacre Video proudly presents the gore filled, darkly comedic, and slightly surreal no-budget horror opus by director Peter Romeo Lambert's (NURSE JILL) DEAD AMERICAN WOMAN. A film that nightmarishly blends the aesthetics of underground film making with slasher set pieces. Co-starring Selwyn Harris (DEVIL IN MISS JONES 5) and an unforgettable performance from Wiley George Finley as Grandpa, DEAD AMERICAN WOMAN makes its official DVD debut, in its never before seen director's cut.

After being brought back from the grave through 'the excrement of an innocent,' murdered go-go dancer Tabitha (Julie Fabulous) sets out to avenge her death, which was at the hands of snuff film producing religious zealot, Virginia Slim (Heather Marie Vernon). Enlisting the aid of Cynthia, whose young daughter also met a gruesome fate from Virginia and her clown-faced henchman, Happy (Happy Dave), Tabitha begins exacting bloody vengeance against all those who wronged her, in the hope that through her acts of violence she'll earn a place in the kingdom of hell. But with each increasingly brutal slaying, Cythia's own blood lust becomes more and more apparent, leading to unexpected consequences…

Reviews

Promotional Material

From the Italian godfather of gore, Lucio Fulci, comes City of the Living Dead , a notoriously nauseating, compellingly corporeal masterpiece of apocalyptic zombie horror!

A medium has a mysterious vision of a priest hanging himself... A seemingly dead woman awakes screaming in her coffin... And in the sleepy New England town of Dunwich, a local girl vomits up her intestines and a town misfit has a drill-bit ploughed into his cranium... These hallucinogenic, often grotesque visions punctuate a skeletal story telling of a reporter (Christopher George, The Exterminator , Pieces ) and a psychic (Catriona MacColl, The House by the Cemetery , The Beyond ) who must race against time to prevent hordes of rotting corpses spewing forth from the gates of hell...

Stridently going beyond the classical stylings of his horror hit Zombie Flesh Eaters , City of the Living Dead sees Fulci eschew conventional narrative logic in favour of a delirious, oneiric mode of storytelling which stresses style, surrealism and atmosphere (as well as offering up bucket-loads of brains, blood and guts!) Presented here in an exclusive 4K restoration with a wealth of extras, Fulci s gore-drenched classic can now be devoured as never before!

    Embraced by a generation of bad movie fans, Troll 2 has become one of the most iconic cult films of its generation, and to this day regularly plays to sold-out theatres of adoring fans. Presented here alongside the first (and entirely unrelated) film, Troll , as well as Best Worst Movie , the definitive documentary on the film's unexpected resurgence as a cult favourite, Troll: The Complete Collection is a celebration of one of the most unusual success stories in movie history.

    Troll The Potter family (including future Law & Order star Michael Moriarty as Harry Potter ) is about to find out there s no place like home when a troublesome troll starts taking over their building, transforming each apartment into an overgrown garden of ancient evil and turning tenants into a horde of hairy hobgoblins.

    Troll 2 After his family moves to the rural community of Nilbog (spoilers, it's goblin spelled backwards), a ghost warns young Joshua Waits that vegetarian goblins want to transform him and his family into plants and then eat them.

    Best Worst Movie An affectionate and intoxicatingly fun tribute to one of the greatest bad movies ever made, and the people responsible for unleashing it upon the world.

    For fans of Ozploitation it is the likes of MAD MAX (1980) or even the trash-tastic TURKEY SHOOT (1982) that may first pop into many a horror hound's mind - however, the cycle offered so much more and never is this clearer than with the surrealist shocks of HARLEQUIN (1980) a true genre standout that was also released under the more ominous moniker of DARK FORCES. In this oddball mix of sci-fi, horror and political espionage (yes, you read that right) a mysterious healer appears in the abode of a leading American senator who finds that his terminally ill son is quickly cured of his leukaemia. The appreciative politician opts to keep this puzzling presence around... although all is not as it seems. With a cast that includes such acclaimed thespians as Robert Powell (TOMMY) and David Hemmings (DEEP RED), the thrills come thick and fast in this genuine curiousity that, once seen, is hard to forget - exactly what one might expect from a script penned by the legendary Ozploitation hand Everett De Roche (LONG WEEKEND, PATRICK, ROAD GAMES, FORTRESS)!

    Canada took the slasher movie to the next level when the country produced the trendsetting BLACK CHRISTMAS in 1974, at the height of what has become known as 'Canuxploitation'. Later shockers from the nation of moose, Mounties and maple syrup included the equally effective MY BLOODY VALENTINE (1981) and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME (1981) but by the turn of the eighties the terror-trend was drying up... at least until the plasma-spilling shocks of POPCORN in 1991! This is Canadian slice and dice action par excellence - and returns to the good old days of splashed blood, high body counts and a mysterious killer as a young female screenwriter (played by the great Scream Queen Jill Schoelen from THE STEPFATHER and CUTTING CLASS) suffers nightmares of a strange figure who may well be breaking into the 'reel' world... Postmodern and provocative, and featuring a genre ensemble cast that includes Dee Wallace Stone (THE HOWLING) and Kelly Jo Minter (THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS), POPCORN has maintained a following of macabre movie fans for decades since its release!

    The film was cut in the US for an MPAA PG-13 rating and this cut version is the only one ever released. The film was rated 15 uncut in the UK for cinema and home video.

    The movie was cut to obtain a US PG-13 rather than an R rating from the MPAA.

    • As shown on the DVD extras, the producers trimmed down the scene where Vin Diesel's character is hijacking the truck towards the end. They removed the shots of the guy's arm being ripped by the wiring on the truck and the agony he expressed.
    • The scene where the motor mechanic is beaten up and doused in grease has also been shortened.

    The BBFC commented:

    Rude humour includes a dog breaking wind underwater, and a recurring joke about a dog's discomfort at having its private parts inspected by competition judges.

    US Censorship

    It was cut for US theatrical release after complaints about a scene where the undercover dog has to get used to his privates being prodded by show judges

    Australian morality campaigners described the cuts. See  article from melindatankardreist.com :

    The film tells the story of a police dog going undercover at a dog show. There are reportedly several scenes in which the dog, Max, has to have his genitals inspected. When he is uncomfortable and wants to stop he is told to go to a zen place. When he submits and allows his genitals to be touched, he is rewarded by advancing to the next level of the show.

    In response to the global backlash, the production company withdrew the film, promising to re-cut it to remove the scenes in question. The film has been re-released, however the scenes remain, with only the encouragement to go to a zen place (essentially, to dissociate) being removed. The meaning remains intact, that unwanted sexual touching is to be endured and may be rewarded.

    Andrei Rublev

    Andrei Rublev is a 1966 Soviet Union historical biography by Andrei Tarkovsky (as Andrey Tarkovskiy).
    Starring Anatoliy Solonitsyn, Ivan Lapikov and Nikolay Grinko. BBFC link IMDb

    Cut by the BBFC for AA rated 1973 short UK cinema version. Otherwise there are two versions: a short director approved version and a longer Premiere Version.

    The Director Approved Version does not contain the scene with the horse fall and so is uncut in the UK The BBFC seem to be in a bit of quandary about the level of violence giving it both 12 and 15 ratings as well as describing the level of violence as both  "moderate" and "strong".

    This version was scheduled to be released in the UK too but the distributors withdrew the release when it was made known that the Premiere Version would require BBFC cuts for a horse fall.

    Tracing the life of a renowned icon painter, the second feature by Andrei Tarkovsky vividly conjures the murky world of medieval Russia. This dreamlike and remarkably tactile film follows Andrei Rublev as he passes through a series of poetically linked scenes--snow falls inside an unfinished church, naked pagans stream through a thicket during a torchlit ritual, a boy oversees the clearing away of muddy earth for the forging of a gigantic bell--gradually emerging as a man struggling mightily to preserve his creative and religious integrity. Appearing here in the director's preferred 185-minute cut as well as the version that was originally suppressed by Soviet authorities, the masterwork Andrei Rublev is one of Tarkovsky's most revered films, an arresting meditation on art, faith, and endurance.

    Severin Films Presents ANTHROPOPHAGOUS - A D'Amato Nasty, Uncut on Blu-ray for the First Time Ever in America!

    It has been called "seriously creepy" (CoolAssCinema.com), "insanely violent" (Nerdist.com) and "truly repulsive" (DVD Talk). It was seized by UK authorities as a 'Video Nasty' and accused of being an actual snuff film. Yet even by '80s Italian gore-spewing standards, this grueling shocker from sex & sleaze maestro Joe D'Amato (BEYOND THE DARKNESS) still stands as perhaps the most controversial - and extreme - spaghetti splatter epic of them all. Tisa Farrow (ZOMBIE), Zora Kerova (CANNIBAL FEROX) and co-writer/producer George Eastman (STAGE FRIGHT, 1990: BRONX WARRIORS) star in this depraved daddy of cannibal carnage from "Italy's King of Trash Sinema" (Horrorpedia.com), now featuring a 2k scan from the original 16mm negative - including two of the most gut-retching scenes in horror history - and spurting with all-new Special Features.

    The film will reveal the relationship of a father who lived and died by the mob code and a son who, while brought up to lead a life of crime, chose to leave that world behind and redeem himself and the Gotti name. Never before has there been such an inside look at the Gotti family and their world of danger, betrayal and redemption. John Gotti was head of the Gambino crime family, which in its time was the largest and most powerful crime organization in the country. Known as the "Dapper Don," John Gotti's flamboyant style and outspoken personality made him one of the most famous mobsters of the 20th century and he ruled the underworld until he died from cancer in 2002 while serving a life sentence. In 1988, at the age of 24, Gotti Jr. became a "made man," and was officially inducted into the Mafia, making him the heir-apparent to head the Gambino crime family and follow in his father's footsteps. But in 1999, Gotti Jr. paid a now-famous last visit to his imprisoned and dying father to ...

    A group of friends have decided to repair and renovate an old house located in the middle of nowhere in the hope of turning it into their 'cool' crash pad. But shortly after arriving, a strange and seemingly senile old woman is found to be lurking around the premises. Uncertain of her intentions, the group of trendy homesteaders go about their business but soon find themselves up against a very unexpected geriatric evil, hell-bent on keeping them as permanent residents in 'her' house, dispatching them in a series of creatively gruesome ways. But to make matters even worse, shortly after meeting their demise, their mutilated corpses return from the dead, determined to help their elderly assassin and her fiendish daughter finish off the others...

    • See review from sexgoremutants.co.uk : " Its plot is as absurdly convoluted and incapable of standing up to close scrutiny as any other great gialli title, and is great fun as a consequence "

    Promotional Material

    Released in 1975, EYEBALL might just be the late, great Umberto Lenzi's greatest giallo! Gruesome and gruelling, this torrid tale of a black gloved killer with a fetish for plucking out the peepers of his unlucky victims is a personal favourite of PULP FICTION genius Quentin Tarantino and it is easy to see why. Boasting plenty of bloodshed and some beautiful Catalonian locations, EYEBALL is a murder-mystery that stands up to the best of Mario Bava and Dario Argento and, with its messy arterial mayhem, even anticipates the later excess of such American slasher staples as FRIDAY THE 13TH! Dare you open your eyes to EYEBALL? This essential Italian terror totem is finally available in horrifying HD thanks to the body-count Kings at 88 Films!

    Still traumatised by the loss of her husband, well-meaning social worker Ann Gentry (Anjanette Comer, The Loved One) throws herself into her latest assignment: the case of Baby , a 21-year-old man with the mind of an infant who crawls, cries and has yet to make it out of nappies. But Baby s family the tyrannical Mama Wadsworth (Ruth Roman, Strangers on a Train) and her two demented daughters aren t the only ones with a warped conception of familial relations, and the full horror only begins when Ann sets her sights on liberating the drooling man-child... and in so doing unleashes the wrath of the Wadsworth women.

    45 years after its original release, this film remains one of the most bizarre horror movies ever committed to celluloid. Directed by Ted Post (Beneath the Planet of the Apes, Magnum Force) and co-starring Marianna Hill (Blood Beach, Messiah of Evil), The Baby is a twisted, psychedelic nightmare of suburban depravity.

    Promotional Material

    Cult director Teruo Ishii (Shogun s Joy of Torture, Blind Woman s Curse) presents a nightmarish, hallucinogenic tale drawn from the fevered imagination of Japan s celebrated pioneer ofero-guro ( erotic grotesque ) literature, Edogawa Rampo.

    Medical student Hirosuke Hitomi slips out of the asylum in which he has been wrongfully confined and stealthily assumes the identity of a recently deceased nobleman with whom he bears an uncanny resemblance. Hirosuke eases his way into the nobleman s household and his dead double s marital bed. But as long-repressed memories begin to bubble to the surface, he soon finds himself drawn to a remote isle where he is confronted by a mad scientist and his malformed men, and discovers the key that will unlock some long-suppressed mysteries of his own.

    A dark labyrinth of the monstrous and perverse that fuses mystery and horror while incorporating motifs from a myriad of Rampo's tales, Horrors of Malformed Men boasts astonishing carnivalesque art design and haunting performances. Withdrawn from cinemas by its own studio after its original scandalous release nearly fifty years ago, the film is among the very best screen interpretations of the author s macabre brand of horror-fantasy fiction, and a unique oddity of Japanese cult cinema.

    Having been at the forefront of America s here-and-now with Easy Rider and the counterculture movies of Roger Corman, Peter Fonda retreated to the past and the American West for his directorial debut, The Hired Hand.

    Fonda plays Harry, a man who deserted his wife and child to explore the wide-open plains with his best friend Archie (Warren Oates). Tired of the life , he decides to finally return home in order to rekindle his marriage and reacquaint himself with his daughter.

    Scripted by Alan Sharp (Ulzana s Raid, Night Moves), shot by Vilmos Zsigmond (Blow Out, The Long Goodbye) and with a standout score by folk musician Bruce Langhorne, The Hired Hand is a beautiful, elegiac picture that ranks alongside The Outlaw Josey Wales and Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid as one of the finest Westerns the seventies had to offer.

    • See review from thedigitalbits.com : " What also aids the film are the excellent performances from Ray Milland, but also from Di Lazzaro, both of whom are ridiculously charismatic "

    Promotional Material

    Throughout the late 1960s and into the 70s, the Italian giallo movement transported viewers to the far corners of the globe, from swinging San Francisco to the Soviet-occupied Prague. Only one, however, brought the genre s unique brand of bloody mayhem as far as Australia: director Flavio Mogherini (Delitto passionale) s tragic and poetic The Pyjama Girl Case.

    The body of a young woman is found on the beach, shot in the head, burned to hide her identity and dressed in distinctive yellow pyjamas. With the Sydney police stumped, former Inspector Timpson (Ray Milland, Dial M for Murder) comes out of retirement to crack the case. Treading where the real detectives can t, Timpson doggedly pieces together the sad story of Dutch immigrant Glenda Blythe (Dalila Di Lazzaro, Phenomena) and the unhappy chain of events which led to her grisly demise.

    Inspired by the real-life case which baffled the Australian police and continues to spark controversy and unanswered questions to this day, The Pyjama Girl Case is a uniquely haunting latter-day giallo from the tail end of the genre s boom period, co-starring Michele Placido (director of Romanzo Criminale) and Howard Ross (The New York Ripper), and featuring a memorably melancholic score by veteran composer Riz Ortolani (Don t Torture a Duckling).

A ruthless global cabal of financial investors plans to manipulate the price of gold on the world market -- by sabotaging one of South Africa's top gold mines and flooding it with millions of gallons of water. All they need is someone to take the blame. Manager Rod Slater (Moore) seems the perfect choice. He's brash, rough and impulsive -- just the sort of man to make a fatal mistake. As Slater embarks on an affair with Terry (York), the heiress granddaughter of mine owner Hurry Hirschfeld (Ray Milland, Panic in Year Zero!), the conspiracy tightens all around him and thousands of lives hang by a thread... Based on a best-selling novel by Wilbur Smith (Dark of the Sun, Shout at the Devil) and filmed entirely on location in South Africa, Gold is an unforgettable thriller with a breathtaking climax and a fantastic cast which also includes John Gielgud (The Whistle Blower) and Bradford Dillman (Compulsion).

    Reviews

    • See  article from thedigitalfix.com : " Perhaps the most prolific and influential exploitation cinema were the Pink films of Japan, and one in particular an odd film by master of the Sexploitation genre Teruo Ishii and his Horrors of Malformed Men "

    Promotional Material

    Cult director Teruo Ishii (Shogun s Joy of Torture, Blind Woman s Curse) presents a nightmarish, hallucinogenic tale drawn from the fevered imagination of Japan s celebrated pioneer ofero-guro ( erotic grotesque ) literature, Edogawa Rampo.

    Medical student Hirosuke Hitomi slips out of the asylum in which he has been wrongfully confined and stealthily assumes the identity of a recently deceased nobleman with whom he bears an uncanny resemblance. Hirosuke eases his way into the nobleman s household and his dead double s marital bed. But as long-repressed memories begin to bubble to the surface, he soon finds himself drawn to a remote isle where he is confronted by a mad scientist and his malformed men, and discovers the key that will unlock some long-suppressed mysteries of his own.

    A dark labyrinth of the monstrous and perverse that fuses mystery and horror while incorporating motifs from a myriad of Rampo's tales, Horrors of Malformed Men boasts astonishing carnivalesque art design and haunting performances. Withdrawn from cinemas by its own studio after its original scandalous release nearly fifty years ago, the film is among the very best screen interpretations of the author s macabre brand of horror-fantasy fiction, and a unique oddity of Japanese cult cinema.

    Promotional Material

    Throughout the late 1960s and into the 70s, the Italian giallo movement transported viewers to the far corners of the globe, from swinging San Francisco to the Soviet-occupied Prague. Only one, however, brought the genre s unique brand of bloody mayhem as far as Australia: director Flavio Mogherini (Delitto passionale) s tragic and poetic The Pyjama Girl Case.

    The body of a young woman is found on the beach, shot in the head, burned to hide her identity and dressed in distinctive yellow pyjamas. With the Sydney police stumped, former Inspector Timpson (Ray Milland, Dial M for Murder) comes out of retirement to crack the case. Treading where the real detectives can t, Timpson doggedly pieces together the sad story of Dutch immigrant Glenda Blythe (Dalila Di Lazzaro, Phenomena) and the unhappy chain of events which led to her grisly demise.

    Inspired by the real-life case which baffled the Australian police and continues to spark controversy and unanswered questions to this day, The Pyjama Girl Case is a uniquely haunting latter-day giallo from the tail end of the genre s boom period, co-starring Michele Placido (director of Romanzo Criminale) and Howard Ross (The New York Ripper), and featuring a memorably melancholic score by veteran composer Riz Ortolani (Don t Torture a Duckling).

    A grim police detective embarks on a one-man crusade to track down a depraved sex maniac when a nightclub dancer receives a disturbing series of obscene phone calls. Finding himself getting far too close to the victim for comfort, the hard-boiled cop must track down the unbalanced pervert before he can carry out his sick threats...

    Refused certification on its original theatrical release due to its sleazy, taboo-breaking nature, this psychological crime thriller features strong performances from Sal Mineo as a bodybuilding, pornography-addicted bus boy and Juliet Prowse as a victimised nightclub hostess. Showcasing Oscar-nominated cinematographer Joseph Brun's breathtaking imagery of pre-clean-up Times Square and 42nd Street, this forgotten neo-noir masterpiece of American independent cinema still retains the power to shock, and crackles with energy from its smart dialogue, electrifying performances and groovy dance sequences.
