Promotional Material

One of the most underrated and neglected genre filmmakers of his generation, Spanish-born director José Ramón Larraz (Symptoms) finally receives his due with this collection of his work bringing together a fascinating cross-section of films from the first half of his lengthy cinematic career.

In Larraz s debut feature, the hitherto ultra-rare Whirlpool (1970), Vivian Neves stars as Tulia, a young model invited to a photographer s secluded country home for what purports to be a quiet weekend retreat but soon turns into a descent into deadly depravity. 1974 s Vampyres perhaps the best known and most widely-released of all José Larraz s films sees a duo of blood-hungry female vampires prowling the British countryside, from where they lure unsuspecting male motorists back to their imposing, dilapidated mansion. Meanwhile, in 1978 s The Coming of Sin (La Visita del Vicio, in its native Spanish), a young gypsy girl experiences a violent sexual awakening as her dreams of a naked young man on horseback become reality.

By turns terrifying, titillating, artful and scandalous, these three films assembled here collectively offer film fans a unique perspective on the fascinating, highly-varied career of one of the horror genre s most overlooked auteurs.

    Three astronauts, Tim Choate (The First Time, Ghost Story), Kate Lynch (Meatballs), John Walsch (Body Parts), in a secret spaceship lose all contact with the ground and observe what appears to be a nuclear exchange between the USA and Russia, basically a WW III. Two months later, the spacecraft's guidance system is mysteriously reprogrammed, forcing the crew's return to a vastly changed Earth. The spacecraft lands considerably off-course, on a beach in eastern Nova Scotia, Canada and they encounter "terminals" -- humans crazed by disease. In the middle of the night, Howe ventures out in search of help and a way to escape. He soon encounters Vinny (Maury Chaykin - Twins, War Games, Highpoint), a survivalist who has fortified his house with barbed wire and booby-traps. Vinny effectively saves him from the "terminals", and makes him his prisoner. Eventually, Vinny, fellow survivor J.J. (Lenore Zann - Visiting Hours, Happy Birthday to Me, American Nightmare, Murder by Phone), and Howe are captured, and taken in chains to a makeshift fortress built out of junk. In order to survive, the crew must escape to the radiation-free zones while avoiding the cannibal "terminals" and a sadistic military-school student- turned-despotic ruler. And will any of them be able to escape before a malfunctioning nuclear warhead explodes in sixty hours? Hang on tight, DEF-CON 4 is a sci-fi survival thriller that will leave you breathless.

    Available for the first time on Blu-ray, Oscar-Nominee Eddie Murphy's got the bite in this movie mix of bone-chilling horror and chill-out comedy directed by Wes Craven (the SCREAM franchise). As the vampire Maximillian, the popular star is the most diabolical, dashing and definitely undead dude in the 'hood. To add to the macabre fun, Murphy morphs into two other must-see characters: a paunchy preacher and a fast talking thug. Angela Basset (BLACK PANTHER) plays the cop whose world is rocked by Maximillian's attempts to make her his mate for eternity. And Kadeem Hardison (KC UNDERCOVER) is the haplessly decaying vampire's sidekick who (a hand here, and ear there) is forever losing things. Brooklyn may be home to the undead now that Max is around-but means it's livelier than ever!

    JEFFREY DAHMER. ONE MAN. 17 BODIES. HIS STORY IS FINALLY TOLD.

    A butcher. An animal. A monster. Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer (Academy Award© nominee* Jeremy Renner, The Avengers) was vilified when authorities discovered he murdered, dismembered, and even tried to consume the bodies of 17 young men in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. But is there such a thing as a human monster? Starting somewhere between popular legend and historical fact, Dahmer dares to explore the truth of a man many called an abomination of nature, but who was most decidedly a living, breathing person. Inspired by life events, it takes you into the demented world of this lonely factory worker and examines the ways in which his twisted personal pain led to the most self-destructive extremes of human cruelty.

Before long, however, the virus starts to reach out into the real world, destabilising the fragile socio-political order for its own ends, and Gagano, trapped in the VR world, must find a way out before it s too late.

    Featuring encounters with an Irish-accented Joseph Stalin, a kung-fu-fighting Batman, and Jesus Christ himself, to name but a few, Jesus Shows You the Way to the Highway is absurd, audacious and like nothing you ve ever experienced before.

    Graveyard of Honor is a 2002 Japan action crime thriller by Takashi Miike.
    Starring Ryo Amamiya, Narimi Arimori and Yoshiyuki Daichi. BBFC link IMDb

    There are no censorship issues with this release.

    Promotional Material

    Two peerless masters of Japanese cinema Kinji Fukasaku (Battles without Honor and Humanity, Battle Royale) and Takashi Miike (Dead or Alive, Audition) present their own distinctive adaptations of yakuza expert Goro Fujita s gangster novel Graveyard of Honor, each tapping into the zeitgeist of a distinct period of Japanese history.

    Set during the turbulent post-war years, Fukasaku s original 1975 film charts the rise and fall of real-life gangster Rikio Ishikawa (Tetsuya Watari, Outlaw Gangster VIP). Shot through with the same stark realism and quasi-documentarian approach as Fukasaku s earlier Battles Without Honor and Humanity, Fukasaku nonetheless breaks new ground through his portrayal of a gangster utterly without honor or ethics, surviving by any means necessary in a world of brutal criminality.

    Meanwhile, Miike s 2002 retelling transplants the story to Tokyo at the turn of the millennium. Less a direct remake of Fukasku s film than a radical reimagining of the same overarching premise, Miike s film captures both the hedonism and nihilism of the modern Japanese crime scene in deliriously stylish fashion, resulting in a fascinating companion piece to the original that nonetheless stands as its own entity.

    With both films making their High Definition debut in a sumptuous limited edition packed with new and archival bonus content, Arrow Video is proud to present these two intertwined but unique crime thrillers from two celebrated filmmakers at the peak of their creative powers.

After murdering a nurse and orderly, Robert escapes from the asylum and begins slashing his way through anyone who stands between his avenging the actions of his uncle. But Uncle Charles has some deadly tricks up his sleeve as well...

    A seedy and perverse slasher-soap opera as only exploitation auteur Paul Leder ( I Dismember Mama ) and co-writer William Norton Sr. ( Night of the Juggler ) could achieve, THE ELEVENTH COMMANDMENT bounces between gratuitous stabbings and squabbling relatives.

    "In this gripping Cold War noir, tensions simmer between residents of a small German village and the soldiers of a U.S. military base. Postwar economic hardship has turned the town of Sohnen into a vice district. The women serve as entertainment for the GIs, while the men struggle for survival in the black market. Helmed by Helmut Käutner (Port of Freedom), Black Gravel is hardboiled cinema at its most cynical, recalling such white-knuckle thrillers as Henri-Georges Clouzot's The Wages of Fear and Jules Dassin and A.I. Bezzerides's Thieves' Highway. Upon its initial release, Black Gravel was criticized for its honest depiction of lingering antisemitism--and the film was re-edited for general release. This Kino Classics edition presents both the uncensored "Premiere" cut and the revised "Distribution" version, both meticulously restored by the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung.

    Stand-up comedy can be a cut-throat business, but in Sam Coex s world, it s downright murder From the annals of bizarre cinema comes perhaps the most bizarre one of them all 1985 s The Comic!

    In a dystopian police state reality of indeterminate time and place, orange bouffant-haired comedian Sam Coex is eager for his big break. Realising that desperate times call for even more desperate measures, he slits the throat of his rival Joey Myers, leaving the way clear for him to carve his own niche on the comedy circuit. But success can be a fickle and fleeting mistress, and Sam soon finds his career on a downward turn when he falls foul of the powers that be.

    Filled with more dry ice and lighting gels than an 80s stadium rock concert, The Comic is a barmy, baffling and beguiling cinematic oddity shot on 35mm film in an alternate dimension. If you ever wanted to know the answer to the eternal conundrum How does Pinocchio make love? then this is the one for you!

    Cecilia, a haughty aristocrat who enjoys taunting her servants with her flawless physique, finds her life turned upside down when she is violated by the victims of her vicious games.

    This stunning film from director Shinya Tsukamoto (Tetsuo, NIGHTMARE DETECTIVE) is set in Tokyo in 1910. Dr. Yukio Daitokuji (Masahiro Motoki), is a former military doctor who has taken over a successful medical practice from his father. He appears to be living a charmed life: he is respected in the local community and is married to the beautiful Rin (Ryo). His only problem is that she suffers from amnesia, and her past is unknown.

    But soon his world begins to crumble. Both his parents die suddenly, killed by a bizarre, rag-wearing stranger. Yukio's relationship with his wife worsens after he refuses to cure the inhabitants of a nearby slum. Then one day he comes face to face with the mysterious killer and a shocking and deadly secret is revealed.

    The Last Victim / Forced Entry

    Link Here

    Forced Entry is a 1975 US thriller by Jim Sotos.
    With Tanya Roberts, Ron Max and Nancy Allen. BBFC link IMDb

    There was a 1973 hardcore film, Forced Entry , by Shaun Costello that featured a maniac war vet killer. It obviously impressed and was remade by Jim Sotos without the hardcore. It was titled The Last Victim , originally with an MPAA PG rating. It didn't do well and was beefed up with stronger material. It was MPAA R rated and reissued theatrically as Forced Entry . This was a little too strong for the UK market and was toned down. However it was still banned by the BBFC from 1982 cinema release, but it did make it on to pre-cert VHS.

    More recently the Director reworked the Forced Entry version into his Director's Cut which drops most of the stronger footage.

    Thanks to Jon:

    This release only contains a 75-minute and 72-minute version, both of which are heavily censored and cut to remove almost all nudity and scenes of rape/sexual assault.

    THE LAST VICTIM (72-minute) version has been shown on Lifetime TV uncut, as there's next to nothing that would warrant anything higher than a 15 in the UK.

    The other version restores a small portion of the controversial scenes but it is still highly censored.

    The full version runs 92m. An 82-minute VHS copy, longer than either of the two Blu-Ray versions, is on YouTube at here , uploaded by someone, with forced Spanish subs...

    This kind of renders the Blu-Ray version as a waste of time and money, other than the fact you get Hi-Def picture and sound.

    Where Do You Go When There's No Place To Hide?

    A hair-raising suspense drama starring Tanya Roberts (A View To a Kill), in a chilling nightmare faced by a beautiful woman forced into a life and death struggle against the demented obsessions of a psychopathic killer. The constant tension is unremitting from the first deadly encounter to the final diabolical conclusion. Definitely not for the faint-hearted.

    Contains both the R rated and PG rated versions under the titles: THE LAST VICTIM and FORCED ENTRY along with reversible cover art featuring the original theatrical poster.

    Promotional Material

    Alejandro Jodorowsky is one of world cinema s most fabled iconoclasts. Often venerated as the ultimate cult film director, the Chilean artist shot to prominence as a 1970s counter-cultural icon thanks to the masterful movies presented on this collection: Fando y Lis , El Topo and The Holy Mountain . These extraordinary films, presented here alongside his stunning new film Psychomagic , bedazzled audiences with their unique aesthetic, contrasting violence and beauty; the sublime and the sacrilegious; the mystical and the macabre...

    Jodorowsky s first feature, Fando y Lis , tells of young Fando and his paraplegic sweetheart Lis s journey through a series of surreal scenarios to find the enchanted city of Tar. An acid-western packed with vivid imagery, El Topo stars Jodorowsky as a master-gunfighter who duels with four sharp-shooting adversaries on his journey across a desert dreamscape. In The Holy Mountain , Jodorowsky plays The Alchemist, a guru who guides a troupe of pilgrims on a quest to ascend the Holy Mountain in search of spiritual enlightenment. Jodorowsky s new cinematic experience, Psychomagic, A Healing Art , explores the directors radical therapeutic work.

    Influential, controversial and endlessly fascinating, Jodorowsky s surreal masterpieces are presented here in stunning new 4K restorations, accompanied with a wealth of illuminating extras, and new writing.

    Fando Y Lis is a 1968 Mexico fantasy adventure by Alejandro Jodorowsky (as Alexandro Jodorowsky).
    Starring Tamara Garina, Sergio Kleiner and Diana Mariscal. BBFC link IMDb

    There are no censorship issues with this film but there was once an alternative version. Shortly after Federico Fellini's Satyricon (1969) was released to appreciative audiences in the USA, an English dubbed version was hurriedly released that was re-edited to appear more Felliniesque and was 13 minutes shorter than the original edit. It was a critical and financial flop... and hasn't been seen since.
