THE DEVIL IN MADDALENA - Starring Lisa Gastoni, an erotic icon of Italian auteur cinema.

Maddalena (Lisa Gastoni) is a young sensual woman, with a tormented soul. Separated from her husband, who won't grant her a divorce, she desperately seeks true and sincere love. During one of her erotic parties, she meets a young priest (Eric Woofe), who is dragged in front of her for a bet. Maddalena sees in the priest, doubtful about his ability to cope with his oath of celibacy, her own spiritual and physical salvation. She therefore decides to seduce him and become a constant presence in his life.

Long sought by collectors, THE DEVIL IN MADDALENA is one of those lost films worth being recovered. Both for the presence of the disturbing Lisa Gastoni, an erotic icon of Italian auteur cinema, and for the beautiful score by maestro Ennio Morricone, considered one of his finest works. The movie has been fully restored firstly from its original negative.

Like a crazy mix of The Terminator (1981), The Power Rangers and of course, Robocop (1987) Robotrix, combines the mad doctor movie with extreme martial arts to deliver a sexy, seductive, bionic tale of lust and violence given a uniquely Asian futuristic spin.

101 Films presents Penelope Spheeris' searing drama Suburbia (1983), title 021 on the 101 Films Black Label. Starring real-life punks rather than trained actors, and featuring live performances from punk bands D.I., T.S.O.L. and the Vandals, Suburbia is an authentic and compassionate study of the Los Angeles punk rock scene in the early 1980s, and a bleak indictment of the American suburban experiment. Extras include a brand new, 30-minute interview with director Penelope Spheeris.

Evan and his younger brother leave their broken home in an attempt to escape their alcoholic mother. They fall in with "The Rejected" (aka T.R.), a group of punks who live as squatters in an abandoned shack by the side of the highway. With the T.R.s, the boys find a new family. But their new family will be tested when they become the target of "Citizens Against Crime," a group of unhappy suburbanites.

    From the golden age of Kung Fu movies, the legendary Shaw Brothers bring you an action-packed tale of revenge, mayhem and flying fists. When his martial arts school is viciously attacked by a rival gang of Japanese thugs, Lei Ming swears to bring them down with violent justice. Written, starring and directed by Jimmy Wang Yu, The Chinese Boxer (1970) is a fabulously fast-paced feature full of exquisite set-pieces and mind-blowing fight choreography.

    A huge influence on the likes of Tarantino's Kill Bill (2003) and Bruce Lee's Fist of Fury (1972) this entertainingly savage story of resilience, skill and a battle against the odds, is one of the first true modern classics of the genre, focussing as it does on physical prowess and athletic proficiency over the more mythical elements of the wuxia era. An undoubted cult classic, this is a must for any serious collector of extreme Asian cinema and martial arts madness.

    Description: From Dario Argento, maestro of the macabre and the man behind some of the greatest excursions in Italian horror (Suspiria, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage), comes Deep Red -- the ultimate giallo movie.

    One night, musician Marcus Daly (David Hemmings, Blow Up), looking up from the street below, witnesses the brutal axe murder of a woman in her apartment. Racing to the scene, Marcus just manages to miss the perpetrator... or does he? As he takes on the role of amateur sleuth, Marcus finds himself ensnared in a bizarre web of murder and mystery where nothing is what it seems...

    Aided by a throbbing score from regular Argento collaborators Goblin, Deep Red (aka Profondo Rosso and The Hatchet Murders) is a hallucinatory fever dream of a giallo punctuated by some of the most astonishing set-pieces the sub-genre has to offer.

    Francis Ford Coppola's 1983 coming-of-age classic, THE OUTSIDERS THE COMPLETE NOVEL, based on S.E Hinton's classic novel, has been stunningly restored. This very special collector's edition includes both the original and complete Novel version in glorious 4K for the first time, overseen and approved by Coppola himself.

    In 1966 Tulsa, teenagers come two ways. If you're a "Soc," you've got money, cars, a future. But if you're a "Greaser," you're an outsider with only your friends...and a dream that someday you'll finally belong. Francis Ford Coppola's powerful film THE OUTSIDERS: THE COMPLETE NOVEL captures how it feels to be caught between childhood's innocence and adulthood's disillusionment. The ensemble is a Who's Who of young talents of the past two decades: Matt Dillon, Tom Cruise, Emilio Estevez, C. Thomas Howell, Diane Lane, Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe and Ralph Macchio. Movingly and in an intensely visual style, Coppola has made these street rats and their struggle heroic -- and unforgettable.

    Extras:

    Includes Original soundtrack CD, 64-page booklet, x 2 posters from artist Tony Stella, 5 artcards from James Hamilton photography, 'Stay Gold' pin badge. Booklet includes exclusive introduction from C Thomas Howell and a brand new interview with S.E Hinton by Lena Dunham.
