Academy Award-winner William Friedkin (The Exorcist, The French Connection) directs Al Pacino as an undercover cop pitched into New York s seedy underbelly in Cruising available for the first time on Blu-ray in a brand new director-approved transfer.

New York is caught in the grip of a sadistic serial killer who is preying on the patrons of the city s underground bars. Captain Edelson (Paul Sorvino) tasks young rookie Steve Burns (Pacino) with infiltrating the S&M subculture to try and lure the killer out of the shadows but as he immerses himself deeper and deeper into the underworld, Steve risks losing his own identity in the process.

Taking the premise and title from reporter Gerald Walker s novel, Cruising was the subject of great controversy at the time of its release and remains a challenging and remarkable movie to this day, with Pacino s haunted lead performance as its magnetic centrepiece.

    Dani and Christian are a young American couple with a relationship on the brink of falling apart. But after a family tragedy keeps them together, a grieving Dani invites herself to join Christian and his friends on a trip to a once-in-a-lifetime midsummer festival in a remote Swedish village. What begins as a carefree summer holiday in a land of eternal sunlight takes a sinister turn when the insular villagers invite their guests to partake in festivities that render the pastoral paradise increasingly unnerving and viscerally disturbing. From the visionary mind of Ari Aster comes a dread-soaked cinematic fairytale where a world of darkness unfolds in broad daylight.

    Satan's Slave is a 1976 UK horror by Norman J Warren.

    Cut by the BBFC for X rated cinema release in 1976 and 18 rated VHS in 1997. The 2004 18 rated DVD is based on the extended International Version but is missing a scene of sexual violence, a decision backed by the director. The sexual violence cuts were waived by the BBFC for 2019 Blu-ray featuring the uncut International Version and the Director's Cut

    Thanks to Jon. There's an extra on the Powerhouse disc of SATAN'S SLAVE showing the difference between the UK BBFC X Certificate Cinema version and the Uncut Version, and also a comparison between the two different versions of the bedroom scene.

    Promotional Material

    From the mind of writer/director Clive Barker the macabre visionary responsible for Hellraiser and Candyman comes Nightbreed, a nightmare-induced fantasy set in a world like nothing you ve ever experienced before... one which will leave you questioning who the real monsters are.

    By night, Aaron Boone (Craig Sheffer, Teen Wolf) dreams of Midian, a hidden subterranean world where monsters have created a haven from humanity. Under pressure from his girlfriend Lori (Anne Bobby, Born on the Fourth of July), he attends psychotherapy sessions, unaware that his shrink, Dr Decker (Videodrome director David Cronenberg), is setting him up to take the fall for a series of violent murders. Convinced he no longer belongs in the human world, Boone goes in search of Midian not realising that the real killer has plans for both him and the colourful cast of outsiders who call it home...

    The victim of studio interference and an unrepresentative marketing campaign, Nightbreed was poorly received by critics on its initial release and failed to ignite the box office, but has since undergone a radical reappraisal. Arrow Video is proud to present two versions of this depraved cult classic: the studio-approved theatrical cut and the reconstructed, reinvigorated director s cut, for the ultimate nightmarish viewing experience.

At night, he creeps through the back streets looking for potential victims, and when he finds one, carefully removes their skin with an elaborate collection of knives. Heidi (Lords), one of Dennis' victims, is on his trail, waiting for a chance to get her revenge, but in the meantime, Dennis has developed a crush on Kerry (Lake), and wants to find a way to show her he really cares.

    The film was originally 12A rated by local councils for local festival screenings in Hull and Sheffield. However when it was submitted to the BBFC it was rated 15 for strong language.

    The film maker Sean McAllister was unsurprisingly not impressed by the BBFC rating and he set out to convince councils that the non aggressive working class use of the word 'fuck' should not need a 15 rating.

    Hull, Lambeth, Leeds, Liverpool, Sheffield, Southampton, Hackney, Bradford, Calderdale, Scarborough and Nottingham agreed with McAllister, and awarded the film a local 12A rating.

    It was revealed that the film contains about 20 uses of the word 'fuck'.

    Promotional Material

    Controversial German filmmaker Jörg Buttgereit ( Nekromantik , Nekromantik 2 ) takes you into the twisted mind of a deranged sex killer in the last of his feature films to date, 1993 s deeply disturbing Schramm .

    Lothar Schramm, the so-called Lipstick Killer , lies dying in a pool of blood and paint. As he expires, fragments of his life flash before his eyes his uneasy friendship with the prostitute that lives next door ( Nekromantik 2 s Monika M); the brutal slaughter of a pair of doorstep evangelists whose bodies he poses in obscene fashion; his unhealthy pastime of hammering nails into his own manhood.

    Told in an entirely non-linear fashion, Jörg Buttgereit s Schramm with its nightmarish hallucinatory sequences involving severed limbs and gaping, sharp-toothed female genitalia comes about as close as a film can get to transporting you directly into the world of a sick, disordered mind.

    Updated: 2019 USA Sci-Fi horror thriller by David Yarovesky set for UK Blu-ray and DVD release on 21st October 2019 but will it be cut or uncut?

    Brightburn is a 2019 USA Sci-Fi horror thriller by David Yarovesky.
    Starring Elizabeth Banks, David Denman and Matt Jones. BBFC link IMDb
    BBFC advised category cuts were required for a 15 rated cinema release in 2019. Uncut and MPAA R rated in the US.
    UK: BBFC details not yet published for:

    Thanks to Ben:

    BBFC details have not yet been published for a joint UK and Ireland video release. However the Irish IFCO ratings reveal that both the cut UK version and the uncut have been submitted for Irish video release.

    • The cut UK cinema version was passed 15 for strong gory violence and supernatural threat.
    • The uncut version was passed 18 for very strong gory violence with injury detail, strong language.

    Furthermore the 18 rated submission was in NTSC (for Blu-ray) and the 15 rated submission was in PAL (for DVD). This rather suggests that the Blu-ray will be uncut and the DVD will be the cut version. Disk extras have been rated 15 so will be suitable for all releases.

    Update: Commentary track for the uncut version

    Thanks to Mike

    The BBFC have just passed a commentary track to accompany the uncut version at 18.

    It is timed for NTSC Blu-ray whilst the equivalent commentary track for the cut version is timed for PAL DVD.

    The legendary Mario Bava has inspired generations of filmmakers, including names as wide-ranging as Martin Scorsese, Tim Burton and Guillermo Del Toro. With their virtuoso photography and budget-belying visual effects, his films transcend their unassuming origins and played a vital role in shaping the horror movie as we think of it today. This exclusive collection from Arrow Video gathers together nine films from Bava s diverse catalogue including gothic horrors, giallo thrillers and even a real-time crime drama.

    Our journey through the maestro s output begins with Black Sunday , the ground-breaking gothic shocker that defined the Italian horror film, before launching the giallo phenomenon with the twisty The Girl Who Knew Too Much . Up next is a triple bill of terror with the gruesome anthology Black Sabbath , followed by a further slice of the macabre with the spine-tingling Kill, Baby... Kill! Next, Bava channels his inner Agatha Christie with the Ten Little Indians -inspired Five Dolls for an August Moon , followed by the proto- Friday the 13th slasher A Bay of Blood (aka Twitch of the Death Nerve ). Bava then returns to his horror stomping ground with the twisted and atmospheric Baron Blood and his surreal classic Lisa and the Devil widely considered to be his masterpiece. The collection concludes with Rabid Dogs (aka Kidnapped ), a gritty, frenetic crime thriller that grabs the viewer by the throat and refuses to let go.

    This stunning collection represents one of Italian cinema s unsung heroes at the height of his creativity, ably assisted by a diverse and talented cast of cult actors, including Barbara Steele ( The Pit and the Pendulum ), Telly Savalas ( Kojak ), John Saxon ( Tenebrae ), Edwige Fenech ( Strip Nude For Your Killer ), Erika Blanc ( The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave ) and Boris Karloff ( The Comedy of Terrors ). Whether you re a newcomer to these films or experiencing them for the umpteenth time, Macabre Visions: The Films of Mario Bava is a must-have addition to your library.

    A young Brooke Shields meets an untimely end in this religious-themed proto slasher par excellence from director Alfred Sole.

    On the day of her first communion, young Karen (Brooke Shields) is savagely murdered by an unknown assailant in a yellow rain mac and creepy translucent mask. But the nightmare is far from over - as the knife-wielding maniac strikes again and again, Karen s bereaved parents are forced to confront the possibility that Karen s wayward sister Alice might be the one behind the mask.

    Bearing influences from the likes of Hitchcock, the then-booming Italian giallo film and more specifically, Nicolas Roeg's Don t Look Now, Alice, Sweet Alice is an absolutely essential - if often overlooked - entry in the canon of 1970s American horror.

    Decades ago, deranged Professor Jones ( John Saxon ) concocted a diabolical drug at a rural college called 'The Nietzsche Experiment,' designed to give its users telepathic abilities, but instead turned anyone who took it into violent lunatics. Now, 20 years later, Jones has returned to resume his experiments and avenge himself against those he feels wronged him and his work. Armed with a group of hideously deformed mutant slaves, it's not long before the tranquil college becomes host to vicious violence and carnage.

    A Detroit shot regional horror movie made at the decline of the direct-to-video era, HELLMASTER was the first feature from cult filmmaker Douglas Schulze ( Dark Fields ) and co-stars David Emge ( Dawn of the Dead ). Combining gothic horror and creature-filled narrative trappings with intensely colorful and Argento inspired visuals, courtesy of acclaimed cinematographer Michael Goi ( American Horror Story ), HELLMASTER was originally titled THEM , but was subsequently re-edited with new footage also added and released straight to video and cable several years after its initial completion. Vinegar Syndrome presents this fascinating slice of creature horror in its original theatrical THEM version for the first time on home video, along with its more commonly seen HELLMASTER recut, newly restored in 4k from its 35mm original negative under supervision from cinematographer Michael Goi.

    A never-before-seen and newly restored cut of Francis Ford Coppola's spectacular cinematic masterpiece in a way which the director believes "looks better than it has ever looked and sounds better than it has ever sounded".

    Apocalypse Now was nominated for 8 Academy Awards (including Best Picture) and won 2 Academy Award for Best Cinematography and Best Sound, 2 BAFTAs for Best Direction and Best Supporting Actor and the Palme d'Or in Cannes. Starring Academy Award winner Marlon Brando (1972, Best Actor, The Godfather), Academy Award winner Robert Duvall (1983, Best Actor, Tender Mercies), Golden Globe winner Martin Sheen (2001, Best Actor -- TV Series, "The West Wing"), Academy Award nominee Dennis Hopper (1986, Best Supporting Actor, Hoosiers), Academy Award nominee Laurence Fishburne (1993, Best Actor, What's Love Got to Do with It), and Academy Award nominee Harrison Ford (1985, Best Actor, Witness), the film follows Army Captain Willard (Martin Sheen), a troubled man sent on a dangerous and mesmerizing odyssey into Cambodia to assassinate a renegade American colonel named Kurtz (Marlon Brando), who has succumbed to the horrors of war and barricaded himself in a remote outpost.

    The best visual and sound technologies have been used to present Coppola's true vision of the film: one that delivers deep, visceral visual and auditory impact. "The audience will be able to see, hear and feel this film how I always hoped it could be-from the first 'bang' to the final whimper" said the film-maker. All three versions of this film are available on the Blu-ray releases including Apocalypse Now: The Final Cut, Apocalypse Now: Theatrical Cut, and Apocalypse Now Redux Extended Cut.

    Restored from the original negative for the first time ever, Apocalypse Now Final Cut is Coppola's most complete version of his multi-awarded classic. This is the first time the original negative has ever been scanned and over 11 months and 2,700 hours were spent on cleaning and restoring the film's 300,173 frames. Brought to life through ultra-vivid picture quality with Dolby Vision, delivering spectacular colours never before seen on a screen, with highlights that are up to 40 times brighter and blacks that are 10 times darker.

    It s not human, and it s got an axe! One of the most underrated efforts to hail from the slice-and-dice boom, The Prey at last emerges from the VHS wilderness in a brand new 2K restoration from the recently unearthed original camera negative.

    Three young couples set off into the mountains for a weekend of climbing, drinking and lovemaking. But little do they know that they are stumbling into the terrain of a fearsome predator - a wild man, horrifically burned as a child many years ago in a fire which engulfed his gypsy camp and left only him alive. Now he roams the woods in search of his next human prey.

    Filmed in 1979-1980 - making it a contemporary, rather than an imitator, of the likes of Friday the 13th - but not released until 1984 when it was picked up by New World Pictures, The Prey is a unique woodsy slasher gem ripe for reappraisal in this extras-packed, 40th anniversary edition!

    THEY WENT FROM ZEROES TO HEROES IN ONE FANTASTIC WEEKEND.

    If you can t get a date... make one! After proving himself the king of heartfelt teen flicks with Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club, writer-director John Hughes infused the genre with a hefty dose of wacked-out sci-fi comedy in Weird Science, a film where every teenage boy s wildest fantasies come to life.

    Perenially picked-on high school nerds Gary (Anthony Michael Hall, Sixteen Candles) and Wyatt (Ilan Mitchell-Smith) are sick of their status at the bottom of the social food chain. Using Wyatt s computer, the two hatch a plan to create their dream woman and following a massive power surge, that woman unexpectedly appears in the form of Lisa (Kelly LeBrock). Gorgeous, intelligent, and blessed with limitless magic powers, Lisa makes the boys dreams come true... but what about Wyatt s gun-toting psycho older brother Chet (Bill Paxton), and the two bullies (Robert Downey Jr and Vamp s Robert Rusler) determined to put them back in their place?

    Inspired by EC Comics and boosted by a killer soundtrack (including the classic title theme by Oingo Boingo), Weird Science has never looked better than in this new special edition, including an exclusive extended version of the film featuring deleted scenes never released on home video before.

    IT'S THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE THAT MAY LAST A LIFETIME.

    In his debut film as writer-director, John Hughes immediately cemented himself as the king of teen cinema with Sixteen Candles , and in the process also introduced one of the most iconic faces of 80s Americana: Molly Ringwald.

    For high schooler Samantha Baker (Molly Ringwald), her 16th birthday might be the worst day of her life. Her entire family has forgotten about it due to her older sister s impending wedding; her biggest crush, high school hunk Jake Ryan (Michael Schoeffling) has discovered an embarrassing sex quiz filled out by Sam in which she details how she is saving herself for him; and to make matters worse, she is hounded by a relentless nerd (Anthony Michael Hall) who won t take no for an answer. But Sam s sweet sixteen isn t over yet, and before the end of the night, all her birthday wishes could still come true...

    Taking the rude and crude humour of the teen sex comedies that came before it and placing it within the intimately portrayed perspective of a girl's mid-teenage-life crisis, Sixteen Candles is a bombshell of 80s pop culture that continues to be debated and beloved over three decades after its release.

    Lords Of Chaos is a 2018 UK / Sweden horror music biography by Jonas Åkerlund.
    Starring Rory Culkin, Emory Cohen and Jack Kilmer. BBFC link IMDb
    Uncut and 18 rated for UK cinema release and home video. Cut in the US for an MPAA R rated DVD but was released uncut and MPAA Unrated on Blu-ray

    There are no UK 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, suicide.

    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.
