Promotional Material

In 1963, director Herschell Gordon Lewis pulled a cow s tongue out of an actress mouth on camera, and in doing so, changed the landscape of horror cinema forever. That sequence was just one of numerous gruesome gags featured in Blood Feast, the film credited as being the world s first gore movie. It s no exaggeration to say that the modern gross-out movies of today owe their very existence to the pioneering efforts of H.G. Lewis.

But whilst Lewis is most widely celebrated for his blood-and-guts epics (Two Thousand Maniacs!, The Wizard of Gore et al.), there s more to the prolific director than splatter. From tales of sordid photographers (Scum of the Earth) to sex robots (How to Make a Doll), from biker girl-gangs (She-Devils on Wheels) to youths-run-amok (Just for the Hell of It), and from psychic witches (Something Weird) to hard liquor-loving hillbillies (Moonshine Mountain), the filmography of H.G. Lewis reads like a veritable wish-list of exploitation movie madness.

Now, for the first time ever, Arrow Video is proud to present fourteen of the Godfather of Gore s most essential films (including nine Blu-ray world debuts), collected together at last and packed full of eye-popping bonus content. So put your feet up, pour yourself a glass of good ol moonshine, and prepare yourself for a feast H.G. Lewis style!

    Everyone knows the classic American horror films. Night of the Living Dead, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and A Nightmare on Elm Street, to name but a few. But we want to tell you a different story: a story of the unsung heroes of stars-and-stripes terror, films that have remained on the fringes of the genre either through lack of availability or else sheer obscurity. This is where American Horror Project comes in.

    Volume One of this series presents three tales of violence and madness from the 1970s.

    Malatesta's Carnival of Blood (Christopher Speeth, 1973) sees a family arrive at a creepy, dilapidated fairground in search of their missing son, only to find themselves at the mercy of cannibalistic ghouls lurking beneath the park.

    Meanwhile, The Witch Who Came from the Sea (Matt Cimber, 1976), stars Millie Perkins (The Diary of Anne Frank) as a young woman whose bizarre and violent fantasies start to bleed into reality literally.

    Lastly, every parent s worst nightmare comes true in The Premonition (Robert Allen Schnitzer, 1976), a tale of psychic terror in which five-year-old Janie is snatched away by a strange woman claiming to be her long-lost mother.

    Remastered from the best surviving elements and contextualised with extensive supplementary material, American Horror Project proudly presents an alternative history of American horror and film heritage.

    Starring Juliet Mills, Richard Johnson and Gabriele Lavia. BBFC link IMDb

    Generally released in an uncut Export Version but the film was shortened in the US for its theatrical release.

    The film was shortened in the US after Warner Brothers won a law suit claiming that the film infringed Warner's copyrights over its film The Exorcist. Beyond the Door was shortened to remove the infringing content.

    Promotional Material

    Legendary filmmaker Ovidio G. Assonitis, whose Tentacles and Piranha II sought to cash in on the killer fish craze spawned by Jaws, first hit pay dirt in 1974 with Beyond the Door a gloriously bonkers riff on The Exorcist featuring Emmy Award-winning actress Juliet Mills and distinguished British actor Richard Johnson.

    Set against the backdrop of San Francisco, Beyond the Door stars Mills as Jessica Barrett, a young mother who starts to develop strange behaviors whilst pregnant with her third child. Before you can say split pea soup, Jessica is displaying signs of full-blown demonic possession complete with projectile vomiting and fully-rotating head! Could it be that she s carrying the child of the Antichrist himself?

    Described as disgusting, scary trash and maddeningly inappropriate by film critic Roger Ebert and subject to a lawsuit by Warner Bros. (who claimed copyright infringement against a certain William Friedkin film), the devilish denizens at Arrow Video have summoned up this wickedly entertaining popcorn spiller fit for Satan himself!

    It's been called "a rip-roaring riot of Italian exploitation" (DVD Beaver), "a weird cross between ROMANCING THE STONE and CANNIBAL FEROX" (The Video Graveyard) and "pretty damn entertaining, possibly even brilliant" (Blu-Ray.com). Now experience the wildest '80s cannibal movie you've never seen scanned uncut in 4k from the original negative.

    Michael Sopkiw (BLASTFIGHTER, KILLER FISH) stars as a cocky paleontologist who crash-lands into a jungle hell chockfull of fashion models, graphic violence, rampant nudity, and tasty gobs of flesh-chomping mayhem. Marta Anderson (BARE BEHIND BARS) co-stars in this "pure exploitative entertainment at its best" (Sex Gore Mutants) - also released as AMAZONAS and CANNIBAL FEROX II - co-written by the legendary Dardano Sacchetti (THE BEYOND, DEMONS) that B&S About Movies says "delivers on everything it promises, except dinosaurs."
