Now two are left: Susy, recently blinded and still learning how to live in a sighted world, and Roat, a psychopathic killer. Roat wants a heroin-stuffed doll he thinks Susy has. All Susy wants is to survive. Dim the lights, check the door’s chain lock, and brace yourself for a chiller as polished as the steel of Roat’s blade. Audrey Hepburn earned her fifth Academy Award nomination as Susy. Alan Arkin is pure evil as Roat, master of disguise and accents. Jack Weston and Richard Crenna costar as his henchmen. Building to a heart-pounding one-on-one confrontation, Wait Until Dark belongs to the screen’s most memorable thrillers” (David Shipman, The Story of Cinema).

IT S NOT CRANBERRY SAUCE!

What do you get if you combine Thanksgiving, American TV star Louise Lasser (Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman), killer '80s synths and some truly gruesome special effects courtesy of Ed French (Terminator 2: Judgement Day)? Why, it's Blood Rage of course!

Twins Todd and Terry seem like sweet boys that is, until one of them takes an axe to the face of a fellow patron at the local drive-in. Todd is blamed for the bloody crime and institutionalized, whilst twin brother Terry goes free. Ten years later and, as the family gathers around the table for a Thanksgiving meal, the news comes in that Todd has escaped. But has the real killer in fact been in their midst all along?

Shot in 1983 but not released until 1987, Blood Rage is a gloriously gruesome slice of '80s slasher heaven now restored from the original negative for its world Blu-ray debut.

    Promotional Material

    After several years spent working almost exclusively in the direct-to-video world of ''V-cinema'' in Japan, Takashi Miike announced himself as a world-class filmmaking talent with this trio of thematically-connected, character-centric crime stories about violence, the underworld of Japanese society, families both real and surrogate, and the possibly hopeless task of finding one's place in the world. His first films made specifically for theatrical release, and his first for a major studio, the ''Black Society Trilogy'' was the beginning of Miike's mature career as a filmmaker and they remain among the prolific director's finest works.

    Set in the bustling Kabuki-cho nightlife neighborhood of Tokyo, Shinjuku Triad Society follows a mixed-race cop (Kippei Shiina, Outrage) struggling with private issues while hunting a psychotic criminal (Tomorowo Taguchi, Tetsuo the Iron Man) who traffics in children's organs. Rainy Dog, shot entirely in Taiwan, is about an exiled yakuza (Dead or Alive s Show Aikawa) who finds himself saddled with a son he never knew he had and a price on his head after the Chinese gang he works for decides to turn on him. Ley Lines moves from the countryside to the city and back, as three Japanese youths of Chinese descent (including The Raid 2's Kazuki Kitamura) seek their fortune in Tokyo, only to run afoul of a violent gang boss (Naoto Takenaka, The Happiness of the Katakuris).

    Three of the most dramatically moving films created by the director, the ''Black Society Trilogy'' offers clear proof that Miike's frequent pigeonholing as a specialist in bloody spectacle is only one aspect of his filmmaking career, and taken as a whole, the films are among the finest works ever to deal with the way violence and brutality can unexpectedly destroy even the most innocent of lives.

In a post-apocalyptic future, humanity has been devastated by a mutated fungal disease that has turned most of the Earth's population into ravenous zombies, known as 'hungries'. In a secure army base in Birmingham, a group of scientists experiment on part-human, part-hungry, hybrid children in the hope of finding a possible cure to the epidemic. In this fortified facility, teacher Helen Justineau (Arterton) believes ten-year-old Melanie (Nanua) may hold the answers to a future cure but objects to her superior, Dr. Caroline Caldwell (Close)'s plan to kill her for further experimentation. When the survivors find their base under attack from hungries they are forced to flee to England's destroyed capital where they continue their fight for survival and for a better future.

But as the endless night wears on, the group is visited by a menacing presence. Slowly, they begin to realise the terrifying legend is all too real and more sinister than they could have imagined.

    NOBODY LOSES ALL THE TIME

    Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia concluded a remarkable period for filmmaker Sam Peckinpah. It brought to an end a seven-year and seven-film run of masterpieces that included the taboo-breaking ultra-violence of The Wild Bunch and Straw Dogs, and the more elegiac tones of The Ballad of Cable Hogue and Junior Bonner. A love story that plays out in a brutal environment, Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia sits somewhere between these moods and may just be Bloody Sam s greatest work, as well as his most autobiographical.

    Warren Oates plays Bennie, a piano player in a Mexican bar who gets himself involved in the manhunt for Alfredo Garcia, a man with a million-dollar price-tag on his head having impregnated the daughter of crime boss El Jefe (Emilio Fernández). Sensing an easy pay day, Bennie takes his girlfriend, Elita (Isela Vega) on a trip that ll prove fatalistic for many of those involved.

    During a career that was blighted by studio interference, Peckinpah would later say that Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia was the only which ended up exactly as he wanted: I did it exactly the way I wanted to. Good or bad, like it or not, that was my film. And it was. This is as close to Pure Peckinpah as it gets beautiful, violent, troubling, heartbreaking, astonishing.

    With Operation Bite Mark in shambles and our heroes again on the hunt for Murphy, Season 3 opens on a world where the fate of humanity rests not in the jaws of zombies, but in the rise of a new breed of hybrid blends. Created and controlled by Murphy, the ever-growing army of blends is hell bent on spreading their message of 'No Fear' across the land. It's up to Warren, Doc, Addy, and new team members Hector and Sun Mei to stop Murphy and his cult of blends before it's too late.

    This season the mission has changed, the team makeup has changed, and even the threats have changed (with all new horrors like Wolf-Z's, Electro-Shock Z's, and the deadly but surprisingly feral humans called 'Enders'.) This season the Apocalypse has gotten worse, the stakes have gotten higher, and our heroes have gotten funnier in the face of zombie danger.

    Me and my girlfriend have killed dozens of people over the last years, worthless pieces of filth that won't be missed by anyone. We also captured some of our murders on video for a small group of like-minded people. But killing started to get boring, and so I decided to make my last dream become reality and have my girlfriend video tape it. For ages, I have been dreaming of inflicting actions of hatred and lust on a corpse, and then getting buried next to this last victim. So I kidnapped a 21 year old whore yesterday.

    Get ready to howl at the moon with laughter as Bubba the Redneck Werewolf (Fred Lass) and a host of riotous hillbillies fight to save their town of Broken Taint from the forces of evil! Pre-Werewolf Bubba (Chris Stephens) is a nightshift dogcatcher and local laughingstock who longs to win back the heart of his high school sweetheart, Bobbie Jo (Malone Thomas). But when the Devil (Bubba comic-creator Mitch Hyman) comes down to Florida, Bubba signs a deal to make himself a bad-ass, only to wake up the next morning permanently transformed into the most a monstrous Werewolf. In order to save his town and be the hero he longs to be, Bubba will have to navigate a country crock of malicious bikers, cryptic hobos, gaseous gypsies, and even a zombie hoard - all leading up to a climactic duel with the dark prince himself. Bursting with belly laughs, satire, and gore-galore, Bubba the Redneck Werewolf is a jubilant dark comedy that could be described as the hillbilly stepchild of Young Frankenstein and Shaun of the Dead. Based on the comic book series of the same name, Bubba boasts a deft merging of practical special effects and CG visual flourishes. Bubba himself is brought to life by the ground-breaking makeup design of Michael Davy, resulting in a fun-loving werewolf with an unprecedented range of comedic facial expressions. The film is directed with its tongue firmly in-cheek by Brendan Jackson Rogers (Flashback); and Bubba's rockin' soundtrack is provided by rockabilly band The Blast-Offs and composer George Shaw (Tabletop, the Geekie Awards). Never before has a Werewolf this lovable been responsible for so much violence! You'll want to drink a beer or twenty with Bubba over and over again!

    A tale of demonic reincarnation reminiscent of Mario Bava s Black Sunday, Revenge of the Blood Beast (Il lago di Satana, aka The She Beast) stars Barbara Steele as Veronica, a British tourist who is stranded in a remote village with her husband Philip (Ian Ogilvy) while honeymooning in Transylvania. They meet a descendent of legendary vampire-hunter Count von Helsing (John Karlsen), who reveals that the town is haunted by a satanic curse. A mysterious car accident plunges Veronica into a nearby lake, but when her body is removed, it resembles that of the legendary Witch of the Lake. Reawakened from her slumber, the blister-faced hag, armed with sickle and claws, rises from the makeshift morgue and unleashes her vengeance upon the descendants of those who executed her, centuries earlier. While the bumbling Soviet authorities stumble over themselves to solve the murders, Philip join forces with von Helsing to capture the witch and put an end to the dreadful curse. Director Michael Reeves (Witchfinder General) mixes gruesome thrills with dark comedy (courtesy of character actor Mel Welles as a devious hotel owner), to make Revenge of the Blood Beast an especially playful entry in the Euro Horror genre.

Keeping the attack to herself, Mary Ann runs away, seeking to lose herself in Manhattan by renting a seedy flat and taking a job in a dime store. Overwhelmed by people's hostility and her own despair, Mary Ann tries to jump off the Manhattan Bridge, only to be stopped by Mike, a garage mechanic who takes her back to his modest basement apartment nearby. At first appreciative of Mike's kindness, Mary Ann becomes terrified when he refuses to let her leave. Is Mike really Mary Ann's rescuer - or is he another rapist?

    KILL ME, PLEASE KILL ME... BEFORE IT S TOO LATE

    Late one full moonlit night, a woman stands alone on the roadside waiting for her husband to return to their broken-down car. All of a sudden she s pounced upon, dragged into the dark woods and savaged by a barely-glimpsed assailant. But this is only the beginning of the terror in The Beast Within...

    Seventeen years on, and the devoted parents of teenager Michael are at their wits end. Their son lies in a hospital bed, his body wracked by a mysterious illness. With doctors unable to offer any diagnosis, Michael s desperate parents are forced to seek out the answer themselves by digging up traumatic past events and confronting the true nature of their son s conception.

    The Beast Within stands apart from other creature features due to its decidedly grim tone the scenes in which the monster violates his victims proved too strong for some critics and standout transformation sequence to rival the likes of An American Werewolf in London and The Howling. Add to that strong lead performances from Paul Clemens and Ronny Cox (Deliverance, RoboCop), alongside a stunning score by the late, great Les Baxter, and you have yourself one absolute beast of a monster movie!

    Promotional Material

    After several years spent working almost exclusively in the direct-to-video world of "V-cinema" in Japan, Takashi Miike announced himself as a world-class filmmaking talent with this trio of thematically-connected, character-centric crime stories about violence, the underworld of Japanese society, families both real and surrogate, and the possibly hopeless task of finding one's place in the world. His first films made specifically for theatrical release, and his first for a major studio, the "Black Society Trilogy" was the beginning of Miike's mature career as a filmmaker and they remain among the prolific director's finest works.

    Set in the bustling Kabuki-cho nightlife neighborhood of Tokyo, Shinjuku Triad Society follows a mixed-race cop (Kippei Shiina, Outrage) struggling with private issues while hunting a psychotic criminal (Tomorowo Taguchi, Tetsuo the Iron Man) who traffics in children's organs. Rainy Dog, shot entirely in Taiwan, is about an exiled yakuza (Dead or Alive's Show Aikawa) who finds himself saddled with a son he never knew he had and a price on his head after the Chinese gang he works for decides to turn on him. Ley Lines moves from the countryside to the city and back, as three Japanese youths of Chinese descent (including The Raid 2's Kazuki Kitamura) seek their fortune in Tokyo, only to run afoul of a violent gang boss (Naoto Takenaka, The Happiness of the Katakuris).

    Three of the most dramatically moving films created by the director, the "Black Society Trilogy" offers clear proof that Miike's frequent pigeonholing as a specialist in bloody spectacle is only one aspect of his filmmaking career, and taken as a whole, the films are among the finest works ever to deal with the way violence and brutality can unexpectedly destroy even the most innocent of lives.

    SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS:

  • Original uncompressed stereo audio
  • Optional English subtitles for all three films

    IT WILL TEAR YOUR SOUL APART

    Stephen King was once quoted as saying: I have seen the future of horror... his name is Clive Barker. That future became reality when, in 1987, Barker unleashed his directorial debut Hellraiser launching a hit franchise and creating an instant horror icon in the formidable figure of Pinhead.

    Barker s original Hellraiser, based on his novella The Hellbound Heart, follows Kirsty Cotton (Ashley Laurence) as she comes head-to-head with the Cenobites demonic beings from another realm who are intent on reclaiming the soul of her deviant Uncle Frank.

    Picking up immediately after the events of the original Hellraiser, Hellbound: Hellraiser II finds Kirsty detained at a psychiatric institute and under the care of Phillip Channard, a doctor who abuses his position to realise his own dark aims.

    In Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth, a reporter investigating a mysterious death at a nightclub finds herself in the way of Pinhead and the Cenobites, who plan to bring their horrifying world into our own.

    Coming at a time when the genre was degenerating into self-parody, Hellraiser offered a fiercely unique vision that approached its horrors with a far greater degree of seriousness than many of its contemporaries.. Along with its sequels, the Barker-produced Hellbound and Hell on Earth, Arrow Video is proud to present some of the most terrifyingly original films in the history of horror in brand new 2K transfers.

    IT WILL TAKE YOU FURTHER THAN FEAR.

    Of all the many slice-and-dice films that emerged in the early 80s, few remain as gruesomely effective as The Burning the notorious video nasty now finally unleashed on Blu-ray!

    When an ill-advised prank misfires, summer camp caretaker Cropsy is committed to hospital with hideous burns. Released after five years, hospital officials warn him not to blame the young campers who caused his disfigurement. But no sooner is Cropsy back on the streets than he s headed back to camp with a rusty pair of shears in hand, determined to exact his bloody revenge.

    With standout gore effects courtesy of FX legend Tom Savini, The Burning proved too shocking for UK censors upon its original video release. Now, fully uncut and in High Definition, The Burning is ready to reclaim its place as the ultimate summer camp nightmare.

    Beyond the darkness terror lives forever Legends abound of The Hellgate Hitchhiker . So the story goes, a beautiful young woman was once brutally defiled and murdered by a biker gang. Now, returned from the dead, she wanders the roadside luring unsuspecting motorists to their doom... Refusing to heed the warnings of locals, a group of college friends set out on a cross-country road trip looking for fun and frolics. But they get much more than they bargained for when they wind up in the abandoned mining town of Hellgate and hemmed in by hordes of the undead! Providing gore and gags in equal measure, Hellgate recalls the good old days of video rental frights and challenges other gleefully twisted flicks such as Re-animator and Return of the Living Dead for sheer grisly delirium!

    With the 20th Century drawing to a close, nuclear war has wiped out civilization as we know it. The embattled human race s last remaining hope lies with one man and his loaded weapon.

    Sam Hell may be an ex-con, but he also happens to be one of the last surviving fertile men on the planet. Now, under the custody of a group of feisty female fighters, Sam finds himself enlisted on a mission to impregnate a harem of beauties. Sounds cushy enough, but the ladies in question are prisoners of Frogtown home to a gang of mutant (and ill-mannered) amphibians!

    Starring wrestler-turned-actor Rowdy Roddy Piper, known to John Carpenter enthusiasts for his body-slamming and bubblegum-chewing antics in They Live, Hell Comes to Frogtown is unashamedly a B-movie through and through with more guns and girls than you can shake a frog s leg at.
