The Charge of The Light Brigade

The Charge of the Light Brigade is a 1968 UK historical war drama by Tony Richardson
Starring Trevor Howard, Vanessa Redgrave and John Gielgud Melon Farmers link  BBFC link 2020  IMDb

Although the cinema version was complete and 'A' rated, the PG rated 1993 UK video release was cut by 7s to edit footage of horse-falls. In the US the film was shortened and this US version was then released in the UK in 2008, again with cuts (this time 14s) to remove the horse falls, but was also uprated to 12.

UK: The US Version was previously passed 12 uncut for moderate violence and racist references after 14s of BBFC cuts for animal cruelty:

Promotional Material

From director Tony Richardson comes this brilliant retelling of tragic events during the Crimean War between Britain and Russia in the 1850s.

A British cavalry division, led by the overbearing Lord Cardigan (Trevor Howard), engages in an infamously reckless strategic debacle against a Russian artillery battery. An inept chain of command and the arrogance of the aristocratic officers nearly destroys the brigade.

Interpersonal wars within the unit, including unfaithful wives and a rivalry between Lord Cardigan and Captain Nolan (David Hemmings), heighten the conflict.

The Damned

The Damned is a 1963 UK Sci-Fi horror drama by Joseph Losey.
Starring Macdonald Carey, Shirley Anne Field and Viveca Lindfors. IMDb

Cut prior to 1963 X rated cinema release over child concerns. It was further cut for US theatrical  release. The cuts were restored in 2010 for 12 rated DVD and MPAA Unrated home video release in the US.

Promotional Material

Having been exiled from Hollywood in the 1950s, American filmmaker Joseph Losey settled in Britain, where he made a series of remarkable and highly individual works.

A film about the horrors of the nuclear age, and the irresponsible science which spawned it, The Damned is one of Losey's - and Hammer's - most idiosyncratic films, and one which has grown in reputation through the years.

    Promotional Material

    In 1970, young first-time director Dario Argento (Deep Red, Suspiria) made his indelible mark on Italian cinema with The Bird with the Crystal Plumage a film which redefined the giallo genre of murder-mystery thrillers and catapulted him to international stardom. Sam Dalmas (Tony Musante, We Own the Night), an American writer living in Rome, inadvertently witnesses a brutal attack on a woman (Eva Renzi, Funeral in Berlin) in a modern art gallery. Powerless to help, he grows increasingly obsessed with the incident. Convinced that something he saw that night holds the key to identifying the maniac terrorizing Rome, he launches his own investigation parallel to that of the police, heedless of the danger to both himself and his girlfriend Giulia (Suzy Kendall, Spasmo)

    A staggeringly assured debut, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage establishes the key traits that would define Argentos filmography, including lavish visuals and a flare for wildly inventive, brutal scenes of violence. With sumptuous cinematography by Vittorio Storaro (Apocalypse Now) and a seductive score by legendary composer Ennio Morricone (Once Upon a Time in the West), this landmark film has never looked or sounded better in this brand new 4K Ultra HD presentation from Arrow Video!

    UK: Previously passed 15 uncut:

    Promotional Material

    THE APE WOMAN (IMdb 7.4) is the highest-praised film by Marco Ferreri , the over-the-top iconoclastic director known for 'La Grande Bouffe'. His signature edginess was revered by the Cannes Festival who screened and awarded many of his works. And as his epitaph Cannes pronounced that "No one was more demanding nor more allegorical in showing the state of crisis of contemporary man".

    Famed to be irreverent, Ferreri dissected our societal mores in all his masterful films, and he was so off-beat and scathing as an author that the Establishment even labelled him 'dangerous'!

    The Ape Woman is inspired by a true story of the cruel exploitation of a young carnival performer, Julia Pastrana, whose body was completely covered in hair.

    She is brought to life here by an extraordinary Annie Girardot - France's highest-paid actress at the time - in a natural measured and elegant performance from which emanates the ambiguous emotion of being alluring yet devastatingly poignant as "the ape woman".

    An unscrupulous hustler (the magnificent Ugo Tognazzi) discovers the young woman in a convent and marries her in order to get her on the freak show circuit and to cash in on the distinctive appearance of her body and face fully covered in hairs.

    For this world 1st ever Blu-ray release, CultFilms is showing all versions of the film recently restored in 4K for the Venice Film Festival finally doing justice to the previously condemned film.

    First is Ferreri's own original edit now shown complete and uncut. And second is the Producer's longer, upbeat ending version which garnered a Palme D'or nomination at the 1964 Cannes Films Festival .

    Notable: Italian audio with new revised English Subtitles + SDH subtitles for Hard of Hearing

    From the director of the legendarily bonkers The Story of Ricky comes an altogether more lubricious slice of adults-only action, one that more than lives up to its title.

    Our ghosts are a trio of saucy spirits with nothing better to do than to deceive unwary (and/ or horny) men, but that's until all three of them get the hots for a hunky scholar. They settle down to show him the pleasures of the flesh. Except the path of true lust does not run smooth...

    Branded with Hong Kong's infamous Category III rating for its commitment to carnality and starring amply endowed icon of Sino sex cinema Amy Yip (Sex and Zen), the supernatural studs at 88 Films are proud to present the UK Blu Ray premier of this soft-core classic -- completely uncut.

    Promotional Material

    Directed by Domenico Paolella (The Prey/The Story of a Cloistered Nun), The Nun and the Devil AKA Le Monache di Sant'Arcangelo is a headily erotic tale of seduction and persecution detailing the sinful practices which spill out of a 16th century convent. When the psychotically ambitious Sister Julia (Anna Heywood) vies to take the place of a dying Mother Superior by any means possible, other inmates start to lose their way, indulging in heterosexual flings and lesbian coupling. But things take a nasty turn when the nuns are subjected to a violent inquisition and their existence becomes one of torture and degradation.

    Made just two years after Ken Russell's notorious The Devils (1971), this 1973 film sought to offer a corruption of the innocent style plot which monopolised on the short-lived wave of nunsploitation features, incorporating graphic horrors, soft-pornography and historical drama. Loosely based on authentic records, this sordid tale of religion and power will delight lovers of extreme Italian exploitation cinema.

    THE FINAL ROLE OF FILM LEGEND MARLENE DIETRICH

    Paul von Przygodski (David Bowie), a young Prussian gentleman, arrives in the trenches in time to be caught in the final explosion of the Great War. After recuperating in a military hospital, where he is mistaken for a French hero, he returns to Berlin. His family home has been turned into a boarding house, his father (Rudolf Schu¨ndler) is paralyzed, and his mother (Maria Schell) is working in the Turkish baths.

    Attempting to find a new purpose, his childhood friend, Cilly (Sydne Rome), abandons him for fame and fortune; his former commanding officer, Captain Kraft (David Hemmings), tries to persuade him to join his right-wing movement and a widow, Helga von Kaiserling (Kim Novak), briefly seduces him with the finer things in life.

    In a society where the individual comes first and anyone can be bought, he is recruited by Baroness von Semering (Marlene Dietrich) as one in her regiment of gigolos. The cynical and decadent world of entertaining rich widows leads an increasingly disillusioned Paul to a poignant, chilling end.

    Following the success of his debut feature, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage , distributor Titanus tasked writer/director Dario Argento with delivering a follow-up in short order. The resulting film, granted a greatly enhanced budget and heralded in its US marketing campaign as "nine times more suspenseful" than its predecessor, was The Cat O' Nine Tails .

    When a break-in occurs at a secretive genetics institute, blind puzzle-maker Franco Arnò (Karl Malden, Patton , One-Eyed Jacks ), who overheard an attempt to blackmail one of the institute's scientists shortly before the robbery, teams up with intrepid reporter Carlo Giordani (James Franciscus, Beneath the Planet of the Apes ) to crack the case. But before long the bodies begin to pile up and the two amateur sleuths find their own lives imperilled in their search for the truth. And worse still, Lori (Cinzia De Carolis, Cannibal Apocalypse ), Franco's young niece, may also be in killer's sights...

    This second entry in the so-called "Animal Trilogy" found Argento further refining his distinctive style and cementing his reputation as the master of the giallo thriller. Co-starring Catherine Spaak ( Il Sorpasso ) and Rada Rassimov ( Baron Blood ), and featuring another nerve-jangling score by the great Ennio Morricone ( The Bird with the Crystal Plumage , The Good, The Bad and the Ugly ), The Cat O' Nine Tails remains one of Argento's most suspenseful and underrated films.

Despite receiving ominous warnings, both human and avian, they set up camp in a musty old house, only to find themselves under siege from mysterious supernatural forces. But it's not just the house or the hoards of hungry birds that they have to worry about, they quickly realize that they're also going to have to contend with a group of bloodthirsty zombies, who have descended on the deserted farmhouse!

    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.
