Lords Of Chaos is a 2018 UK / Sweden horror music biography by Jonas Åkerlund.
Starring Rory Culkin, Emory Cohen and Jack Kilmer.
There are no censorship issues with this release although it did kick off a little controversy in the British press.
According to the Telegraph the BBFC were so concerned about the film that it was reviewed at the highest levels and suicide prevention experts were consulted before it was approved for an 18 certificate for strong bloody violence, gore,
The Telegraph suggests the US film censors at the MPAA were similarly concerned before rating it R for strong brutal violence, disturbing behavior, grisly images, strong sexuality, nudity, and pervasive language.
Oslo. Norway. The early 1990s. A new, uncompromising style of heavy metal explodes onto the underground - True Norwegian Black Metal! Blasting and brutal yet also majestic, this subgenre achieves worldwide infamy through the extraordinary
achievements of its musicians and the suicides, murders and church burnings that come to define the scene...
17-year-old Euronymous (Rory Culkin) longs to escape his idyllic middle-class life. Enlisting a clique of fanatical youths - Necrobutcher, Hellhammer and Dead (Jack Kilmer) - he forms the most evil band in the world... Mayhem. The band soon
achieve notoriety for the extremity of their shows and the morbid cult that surround them, but the dark world Euronymous has created soon degenerates into a mire of murder and arson when an arch-rivalry with Varg (Emory Cohen), of the band
Burzum, spirals out of control...
A thrilling true-crime horror film that weaves together rock n roll delinquency, death and betrayal, Lords of Chaos is by turns shocking, funny and tragic. Swedish director Jonas Åkerlund renders the world of black metal with immense detail
whilst also coaxing superb performances from his young cast.

"Brotherly Love" -- an interview with Mike Cartel, actor and production assistant
In 1830, forty years to the day since the last manifestation of their dreaded vampirism, the Karnstein heirs use the blood of an innocent to bring forth the evil that is the beautiful Mircalla - or as she was in 1710, Carmilla. The nearby
Finishing School offers rich pickings not only in in the blood of nubile young ladies but also with the headmaster who is desperate to become Mircalla's disciple, and the equally besotted and even more foolish author Richard Lestrange.
Someone Is Taking A Big Bite Out Of The Big Apple!
A blade-wielding psychopath is on the loose, turning The Big Apple bright red with the blood of beautiful young women. As NYPD detective Fred Williams (Jack Hedley, ''For Your Eyes Only'') follows the trail of butchery from the decks of the
Staten Island Ferry to the sex shows of Times Square, each brutal murder becomes a sadistic taunt. In the city that never sleeps, the hunt is on for the killer that can t be stopped!
Co-written and directed by acclaimed horror maestro Lucio Fulci (''Zombie'', ''City of the Living Dead'') and filmed on location in the mean streets of New York City, this is one of Fulci's most savage and controversial
thrillers. Now Blue Underground is proud to present THE NEW YORK RIPPER in a new 4K restoration from its original camera negative, completely uncut and uncensored, and fully loaded with exclusive new Extras!

The Grand Duel is an archetypal spaghetti western which boasts many of the genre s classic hallmarks including action-packed gunfights, wild stunts and an impressive climactic showdown...
Genre stalwart Lee Van Cleef (The Big Combo, Day of Anger) stars as a gnarled ex-sheriff called Clayton who comes to the aid of young Philipp Wermeer (Alberto Dentice), a fugitive framed for the murder of a powerful figure called The Patriarch.
Clayton helps Philipp fend off attacks from bounty hunters in a series of thrilling shootouts before the two make their way to Jefferson to confront three villains known as the Saxon brothers, and reveal who really killed The Patriarch.
A complex tale of revenge penned by prolific giallo writer Ernesto Gastaldi (Torso, The Case of the Scorpion's Tail), The Grand Duel benefits from a beguiling central performance from Lee Van Cleef and assured helmsmanship from Giancarlo Santi
(assistant director to Sergio Leone on The Good, The Bad and The Ugly and Once Upon a Time in the West). Add to this brew a memorable and tuneful score by composer Luis Bacalov (Django, Milano Calibro 9) and the stage is set for one of the
grandest of all the Italian westerns.

Twenty years after David Cronenberg prophesised the dark side of the Internet age in Videodrome, acclaimed French filmmaker Olivier Assayas (Irma Vep) updated it for the New Millennium in his startlingly prescient Demonlover, a chilling
exploration of the nexus between sex and violence available at the click of a button.
Up-and-coming executive Diane (Connie Nielsen, One Hour Photo) lets nothing stand in her way when it comes to landing the lucrative Tokyo Anime contract for the Volf Corporation, guaranteeing worldwide exclusive rights to the latest in
cutting-edge hentai. Despised by her assistant (Chloe Sevigny, American Psycho) and engaged in a risky game of corporate espionage, her ruthless ambition meets its match in Elaine (Gina Gershon, Bound), the charismatic representative of an
American Internet porn company called Demonlover. However, the company is only the front for an online portal to the Hellfire Club, which gives its users control over the next big thing in interactive extreme pornography: real women, tortured
according to subscribers whims, in real time. Diane wants a piece of the action, and will stop at nothing to get it; but as she delves deeper into the twisted world of the Hellfire Club, reality slips away and the stakes of the game are raised
to the point of no return.

First there was CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (1980)... Then came CANNIBAL FEROX (1981)... But somewhere in France, someone was already hatching a plot to cash-in on the Italian intestinal classics with CANNIBAL TERROR (1981). With no
budget, no professional actors and no flights to Amazonia, CANNIBAL TERROR instead gives us Deodato and Lenzi on a cash-strapped level and the end result is THE ROOM of cannibal movies!! Brilliant, banal and blood-soaked late night
entertainment, CANNIBAL TERROR was also one of the infamous 'video nasties' in the UK - showing that our beloved censors and moral guardians have little in the way of a sense of humour! However, this torrid tale of stranded tourists being hunted
by hungry natives is a work of demented genius that words can barely do service to - and it is our great pleasure to offer audiences another chance to see CANNIBAL TERROR, this time in a delirious HD special edition!
Much-missed by fans of quick-jack cinema, the late Jess Franco had a career in fear that veered between arty outings such as VAMPYRO LESBOS (1971) and the cheap and cheerful projects that includes the official 'video nasty'
DEVIL HUNTER (1980). Featuring a leading man turn from the Italian horror legend Al Cliver (ZOMBIE FLESH-EATERS/ THE BEYOND), DEVIL HUNTER is part Indiana Jones, part CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (1980) and all outrageous insanity as Franco throws-in
babes, bare-boobs and blood and native-battles in an attempt to keep audiences glued to the screen. For fans of cheese and sleaze, it does not get any better than DEVIL HUNTER - finally available for Franco enthusiasts and video nasty lovers to
reappraise in HD!
For years fans waited for the release of a sequel to Ruggero Deodato's trendsetting CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (1980) yet it would take almost a decade for THE GREEN INFERNO, also known as CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST 2, to arrive... and it
was not, perhaps, what followers of the cycle in Italian nasty native movies were expecting! Whilst Deodato's original benchmark critiqued the mondo film pseudo-documentary phenomenon, partly instigated by cinematographer and director Antonio
Climati (MONDO CANE/ SAVAGE MAN, SAVAGE BEAST), here the focus turns to satirising the hypocrisy and complexity of CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST itself! Directed by Climati, CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST 2 sees some enterprising adventurers traipsing into the Amazon
jungle in search of a missing professor and, in the interim, the youngsters encounter some indications that slavery and European colonialism is still robbing the Colombian rain forest blind! A mix of macabre images, scenic locations, castrations
and sly in-jokes, CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST 2 introduces some belated bad taste humour into familiar jungle territory and requires immediate reappraisal from tribal terror completists - which is a meal best served in glorious HD by the video nasty
enthusiasts at 88 Films!!
