From co-directors Paul Donovan and Maura O'Connell (DEFCON-4) comes one of the most disturbing - and rarely-seen - Canadian shockers of the '80s, inspired by the actual 42-day Halifax police strike: When a local group of right-wing vigilantes massacres the patrons of a gay bar, the sole survivor seeks refuge in a nearby apartment building whose residents must now defend themselves in a night of hate, terror and bloodshed. Doug Lennox (BREAKING POINT), Tom Nardini (CAT BALLOU), Jack Blum (HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME) and Keith Knight (MY BLOODY VALENTINE) star in this dark and intense thriller, still uncomfortably relevant 35 years after it was made (Blog Of Horror) - released in the U.S. as SELF DEFENSE - scanned in 2K from the original negative recently discovered in a Nova Scotia archive.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Their Nightmare Was Further than Fear... It was BEYOND TERROR ! After a drug-fueled night of violence, a group of young degenerates and their hostages find themselves stranded in a remote, abandoned church in rural Spain. Their evening of debauchery and blasphemy quickly turns to greed when they discover a local legend that tells of a vast fortune guarded by mummies in the catacombs beneath the ruins. Their lust for the treasure is short-lived as they find that the supernatural horror in the catacombs is something further than fear... it is Beyond Terror! Beyond Terror (Más allá del terror) is a lost gem that is long overdue for rediscovery.

    Never available on home video in the United States, Beyond Terror makes its worldwide Blu-ray debut from Cauldron Films with a brand new 4K scan from the camera negative that has been restored to its original grim glory. Co-written by Juan Piquer Simón (Pieces, Slugs), this early '80s hybrid unfolds like an homage to Amando de Ossorio's Tombs of the Blind Dead, by way of Mario Bava's Rabid Dogs, with a healthy dose of violence, gore, sex, eerie crypts and supernatural revenge!

    After a young model seemingly dies of a heart attack, her lover, Peter Oliver (Anthony Steffen, The Night Evelyn Came out of the Grave, Django the Bastard) and his butler begin their own investigation into the death and soon find an intertwined series of murders, all involving a cat and a yellow shawl. One step ahead of the police, but always right behind the killer, Peter manages to piece together clue after clue until the final, shocking showdown with the bloodthirsty killer. Released in the shadows of Dario Argento's wildly successful The Bird with the Crystal Plumage (and one of over 30 Italian giallo films produced in 1972), The Crimes of the Black Cat delivers the style of a classic giallo with sleazy, over the top violence that rivals Italian films from a decade later. Despite its pedigree of talent including Sylva Koscina (Lisa and the Devil), Renato De Carmine (Challenge to White Fang), Giacomo Rossi Stuart (Death Smiles at a Murderer, Shanghai Joe), Umberto Raho (Amuck, Summertime Killer), and Annabella Incontrera (The Case of the Blood Iris), an eerie score by Manuel De Sica (Dellamorte Dellamore), and behind the scenes work from Fabrizio De Angelis (producer of Zombie, The Beyond) The Crimes of the Black Cat has been largely ignored on home video.

    Laura Gemser returns to the role that made her famous in this scintillating work of depraved erotica, one of the many controversial entries in Italian director Joe D'Amato's Black Emanuelle series. EMANUELLE AND THE WHITE SLAVE TRADE (aka LA VIA DELLA PROSTITUZIONE and EMANUELLE AND THE GIRLS OF MADAME CLAUDE) sees Gemser's comely and sexually curious journalist tracking down a notorious Mafia boss to the jungles of Kenya in hopes of interviewing him for her newspaper. Along the way, Emanuelle inadvertently stumbles upon an even more sensational story, that of a vile international white slavery ring, run by the sadistic Madame Claude. Once again, Emanuelle must go undercover, this time as a prostitute in Madame Claude's clandestine San Diego bordello, engaging in all manner of carnal couplings while secretly working to bring down the Madame's evil empire.

    EMANUELLE AND THE WHITE SLAVE TRADE is one of D'Amato's finest works, a beautifully photographed (by the director himself) work of sex and sadism with a pumping soundtrack by composer Nico Fidenco (EMANUELLE AROUND THE WORLD, BOCCACCIO '70) and a cast that includes Ely Galleani (Lucio Fulci's A LIZARD IN A WOMAN'S SKIN), Gabriele Tinti (VIOLENCE IN A WOMAN'S PRISON) and Gota Gobert (EMANUELLE IN AMERICA).

    When a phone call from out of the blue brings Leo (Joey Millin) back into contact with his sister, Virginia (Madison West), long estranged from her family due to years of drug abuse, he arrives to find her alone in a bare apartment in the midst of an apparent overdose. After the convulsions and nausea subside, Virginia insists to Leo that she has been clean for 8 months due to the help of a mysterious group. She confides to her cynical brother that her edginess and paranoia actually stem from a sinister ritual conducted by the group that took her in at her lowest and eventually revealed themselves to be a cult. This curse bound her emotions and physical sensations to a man she has never met before. With his marriage on the rocks, Leo has his own demons to face. Nonetheless, he is reluctantly persuaded by Virginia to embark on a cross-country road trip to track down this shadowy stranger under the caveat that if he's nowhere to be found and it's all in her head, she'll go to rehab. However, as their date with destiny draws nearer, Leo begins to suspect his sisters tall tale might have some substance.

    Threshold, the second feature from co-directors Powell Robinson and Patrick R Young, following their debut Bastard (2015), was improvised and shot on two iPhones over the course of a 12-day road trip with a crew of just three. The result is an inventive and compelling psychological thriller with hints of the supernatural that recalls such indie cult classics as Ben Wheatleys Kill List (2011) and Justin Benson and Aaron Moorheads Resolution (2013).

    After making his first bonafide classic in Ride the High Country, director Sam Peckinpah took a step towards the epic with Major Dundee. The film would, in many ways, define the rest of his career both on screen and off, as the drama behind the camera matched the action in front of

    Charlton Heston stars as Major Amos Dundee, a vainglorious Union Cavalry officer, who mounts an expedition to hunt down Apache war chief Sierra Charriba. Building his own army of criminals, ex-slaves and Confederate POWs - among them one Captain Ben Tyreen (Richard Harris), whose intense former friendship with Dundee is tainted with a sense of betrayal on both sides - Dundee heads into Mexico, his eye fixed firmly on a last shot at greatness.

    Legendarily acerbic, Major Dundee would be the first time that Peckinpah had a movie taken away from him. While a director's cut may be lost to us, this Limited Edition shows us the thrilling, morally complex epic that Peckinpah was aiming for. Beautifully shot and with a stellar supporting cast including James Coburn, Warren Oates, and L.Q. Jones, it remains a stunning achievement and an essential experience for anyone interested in the life and cinema of Bloody Sam.

Barbara is an adult-orientated fantasy tale filled with love and the occult from Osamu Tezukas reimagining of The Tales of Hoffmann. Its story deals with the erotic and bizarre experiences of a famous novelist called Yosuke Mikura whose life is tossed upside down by a mysterious girl named Barbara. The controversial story, dealing with various taboos such as forbidden love, mystery, art, Eros, scandal and occultism, was said to have been impossible to be cinematized at the time of its original publication, but was made into a live-action film for the 90th Anniversary of Osamu Tezukas birth by his son Macoto Tezka (The Legend of the Stardust Brothers)

    This collection contains a wealth of new and archival extra features, including documentaries and appreciations, interviews with actors and crew members, audio commentaries, and extensive booklets. Strictly limited to 6,000 numbered units.

    The Shadow of the Cat (John Gilling, 1961). A house cat sees her mistress murdered by two servants under orders from her husband , and becomes ferociously bent on revenge.

    Captain Clegg (Peter Graham Scott, 1962). When a captain arrives on an English coastal town to investigate reports of smuggling, he ends up with much more to deal with, including marsh phantoms and a suspicious vicar.

    The Phantom of the Opera (Terence Fisher, 1962). Composer Lord Ambrose D'Arcy (Michael Gough) and his backer, Harry Hunter (Edward De Souza), struggle to find a replacement for the female lead in their new opera after she quits in the wake of a gruesome murder. When a new prospect, the nubile Christine Charles (Heather Sears), disappears, Harry cautiously investigates. Meanwhile, a mysterious masked man (Herbert Lom) who is eerily familiar with the opera holds Christine captive and offers to groom her to play the part.

    Nightmare (Freddie Francis, 1964). Janet is a young student at a private school. Her nights are troubled by horrible dreams in which she sees her mother, who is in fact locked in a psychiatric hospital, haunting her.

    Director Bruno Mattei and screenwriters Claudio Fragasso & Rossella Drudi return to the Philippine jungles with a higher budget, bigger action and Richard Harris (yes, that Richard Harris) for a crowd-pleaser that shamelessly borrows from APOCALYPSE NOW, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, RAMBO and beyond. This time, Sgt Mike Ransom (Brent Huff of GWENDOLINE fame) battles the KGB, rogue CIA agents, an army of ninjas, a tough bar owner (Miss World 1977 Mary Stavin) and all the stuntman craziness and explosions you can cram into 90 minutes (DTV Connoisseur). Mel Davidson (ROBOWAR) and Vic Diaz (THE BIG BIRD CAGE) co-star in this slow-motion machine-gun of Mattei mayhem that's just as insane as its predecessor (Good Efficient Butchery), now featuring a 2K scan from the original negative for the first time ever.

    Sensationally based on a 'true story', Hammer's The Stranglers of Bombay incorporates elements of the horror and thriller genres within an exotic adventure tale involving the murderous Kali-worshipping Thuggee cults in India during the early 1800s.

    Under Terence Fisher's masterful direction, and with a surprising degree of attention to historical detail, The Stranglers of Bombay presents a solid yarn while (naturally) highlighting the gruesome and horrific elements of the story. It set an impressive and intriguing precedent for Hammer's subsequent adventure-thrillers.

    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.

    Friendship's Death (DVD + Blu-ray)
    Directed by Peter Wollen

    Friendship's Death is a bizarre and absorbing story of the relationship between a British war correspondent (Bill Paterson, Comfort and Joy ) and a female extra-terrestrial, named Friendship (Tilda Swinton, We Need to Talk About Kevin ) who on a peace mission to Earth misses her intended destination of MIT, and instead lands inadvertently in Jordan during the events of Black September in 1970. The film's intelligent wit, coupled with outstanding performances from its two leads makes this a truly compelling film.

    Promotional Material

    Drawn from the pen of one of Japans foremost writers of the 20th century, Junichiro Tanizaki (A Fools Love, The Makioka Sisters), Irezumi is a stylish tale of lust, betrayal and revenge directed by Yasuzo Masumura (Giants and Toys, Blind Beast). Masumuras muse Ayako Wakao (The Blue Sky Maiden, Red Angel) stars as Otsuya, the daughter of a rich merchant, who is tempted by her lover, Shinsuke, a lowly employee of her fathers, to elope. During their flight, Otsuyas beauty attracts the gaze of Seikichi, a mysterious master tattooist who sees her pristine white skin as the perfect canvas for his art. The image of the large demonic spider that he emblazons across Otsuyas back marks her as the property of another man, radically altering her relationships with all around her as her personality transforms under its influence.

    Available for the first time outside of Japan in a new 4K restoration, Irezumi sports some of Japanese cinemas most respected talent of its day both in front of and behind the camera. The bewitching cinematography by Kazuo Miyagawa (Rashomon, Ugetsu) captures the sensual atmosphere of the period setting, while the script by Kaneto Shindo (Onibaba, Kuroneko) lends a modern twist to this feverish meditation on obsession and the act of creation.
