Promotional Material

The late great Umberto Lenzi gave audiences some of the most notorious video nasties including his legendary gut-crunchers THE MAN FROM DEEP RIVER (1972) and CANNIBAL FEROX (1981). However, the maestro of macabre, nightmare-making images was rightly most proud of his giallo classics - most famously represented by the colourful intrigue of SPASMO (1974) and the gruelling gore of EYEBALL (1975). For NIGHTMARE BEACH, released in 1988, Lenzi would claim that a troubled production process meant he took a 'backseat' role - although it is difficult not to notice his blood-splashed paw-print all over this terrifying tale of a madman in a motorcycle helmet who is taking out drunk and delicious young co-eds all over the sparkling sands of South Florida. As the body count creeps up, Miami detective John Saxon (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET) tries to keep ahead of the curve in this carnage-packed, late-day Lenzi gem that is only now gaining a belated British bow for horror-hungry addicts and completists of Italian trash-terror!

Reviews

Banned in 1998

The video was submitted by Dave Gregory from the Exploited VHS label in 1998 and he made it absolutely clear that Whittam Smith was personally responsible for the ban. The story goes like this:

I submitted Deadbeat at Dawn back in July hoping to release it alongside Vigilante . The BBFC sent me a not entirely unexpected cuts list for Deadbeat totalling two minutes of footage. I made around fifty cuts to remove all sight of chain sticks and throwing stars exactly as they requested. Most of the gore in the film passed unnoticed. 

I resubmitted the film and started sending out preview copies, printed the sleeves, and ran a couple of ads, under the foolish assumption that because I had cut what they asked the film would be approved. Not so. Ferman watched it and through his secretary informed me that there was a problem with the violence in the film. A discussion was to be staged on the matter two days after the original release date: Oct. 26th. According to Ferman, opinions were split among the examiners.

Then Whittam Smith entered the room, overruled all discussion and declared that the film was to be rejected. Democratic discussion! Anyway, Ferman said they didn't want to issue another cuts list and that I could submit a toned down version if I wanted to. He had this impression of the film reaching a massive audience of impressionable. I told him that he ought to consider, in future, the actual market for a film of this type. 1500 units max! Not a huge blockbuster by any account, but a healthy specialist market.

Promotional Material

Jim VanBebber s notorious, blood-drenched cult classic Deadbeat at Dawn rises again on the advent of its 30th anniversary, newly restored for the first time on Blu-ray. Locked and loaded with a raft of new extras, see Deadbeat as you ve never seen it before in all its head-busting, bone-crushing glory!

Written by, directed by and starring VanBebber, Deadbeat follows the story of Goose a gang leader whose girlfriend is brutally slaughtered when he attempts to leave the thug life behind. Pulled back into the gang, who ve now formed an uneasy alliance with the thugs that butchered his girl, Goose sees an opportunity to exact his brutal, deadly revenge.

The very definition of DIY, independent filmmaking (VanBebber quit film school after his first year and used his student loan to fund the movie), Deadbeat at Dawn surpasses its low-budget origins to create a revenge movie that delivers more thrills and bloody spills than all of Chuck Norris films combined.

    The distributor, Exploited commented on the 1999 cuts:

    I have to cut a particularly brutal scene from the climax of the film, which may render the film pointless.

    Summary Notes

    "My Sweet Satan" - Ricky Casland hangs himself in prison. Flashbacks and discussions with friends trace his degeneracy into drugs and Satan worship that culminates in the crime that put him behind bars. "Roadkill: the Final Days of John Martin" - John Martin stays at home a lot watching TV and eating of the bountiful harvest from the roads. He only goes out when he needs more supplies, and he doesn't always limit himself to roadkill. "Doper" - Barry and his friends smoke a lot of pot, and generally live for the party, but manage to maintain responsible employment, as evidenced by supportive interviews with Barry's coworkers.

    Promotional Material

    The legacy of the ever-admired Lucio Fulci lives on with ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS PART 3!!!! In 1979 director Lucio Fulci created a video nasty legend with his masterpiece ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS, banned in Britain and dragged through the tabloid gutter as an example of a film likely to deprave and corrupt anyone foolhardy enough to fall for its ferocious charms. An admittedly troubled sequel was born in 1988, for which Fulci returned, but the best was yet to come with 1989's outrageously gory and ghastly ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS 3! Directed by Claudio Fragasso (thanks to Fulci's battle will ill-health), the man behind the notorious TROLL 2 and the producer of the infamous and formerly banned splatter opus ZOMBIE CREEPING FLESH, the innards and excitement comes thick and fast in this first class follow-up which returns its witless characters to the Caribbean. As with the original gut-chomper, a voodoo legend once again unleashes hordes of shambling corpses seeking to chow down on anyone stupid enough to be trespassing on hallowed ground! Years since it scandalised audiences, the third in the ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS franchise is back to bite a way into your Blu Ray collection -- available in HD for the very first time in the UK. Complete your ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS collection with this outrageously gruesome piece of eighties nasty-nostalgia and you may even convince us to release part four!

    HE QUIT THE GANGS. THEY KILLED HIS GIRL. HE BECAME... DEADBEAT AT DAWN

    Jim VanBebber's notorious, blood-drenched cult classic Deadbeat at Dawn rises again on the advent of its 30th anniversary, newly restored for the first time on Blu-ray. Locked and loaded with a raft of new extras, see Deadbeat as you've never seen it before in all its head-busting, bone-crushing glory!

    Written by, directed by and starring VanBebber, Deadbeat follows the story of Goose a gang leader whose girlfriend is brutally slaughtered when he attempts to leave the thug life behind. Pulled back into the gang, who've now formed an uneasy alliance with the thugs that butchered his girl, Goose sees an opportunity to exact his brutal, deadly revenge.

    The very definition of DIY, independent filmmaking (VanBebber quit film school after his first year and used his student loan to fund the movie), Deadbeat at Dawn surpasses its low-budget origins to create a revenge movie that delivers more thrills and bloody spills than all of Chuck Norris' films combined.

    Dare you say his name five times? From the chilling imagination of horror master Clive Barker (Hellraiser, Nightbreed), comes Candyman arguably one of the greatest horror movies of the 1990s, now newly restored on Blu-ray.

    When grad student Helen Lyle (Virginia Madsen) begins working on a thesis looking at urban legends, she encounters the tale of the Candyman the vengeful spirit of a hook-handed slave, who, it is said, can be summoned by saying his name five times in the mirror. As her research leads her into the bowels of Chicago s deprived housing projects and deeper into the Candyman s world, Helen learns that some legends are best left alone...

    Expertly directed by British filmmaker Bernard Rose and boasting an astounding score by composer Philip Glass, Candyman ingeniously reworks Clive Barker s original short story The Forbidden (originally published as part of his Books of Blood collection) into a modern horror parable that remains as timely today as ever.

    ENTER... IF YOU DARE!

    A talented and versatile journeyman, director Sergio Martino (The Case of the Scorpion's Tail, Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key) has lent his talents to multiple genres across his long and varied career, but it is undoubtedly his giallo thrillers from the early 70s for which he is best known. Among the most highly acclaimed of these, 1973's Torso revels in the genre's time-honored traditions while simultaneously laying the groundwork for the modern slasher movie.

    A sex maniac is prowling the streets of Perugia, targeting picturesque university town's female students. Alarmed at plummeting life expectancy of the student body, Jane (Suzy Kendall, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage) and her three friends elope to a secluded country villa only to discover that, far from having left the terror behind, they've brought it with them!

    Also known as ''Carnal Violenc''e, Torso was released in Italy towards the end of the giallo boom before enjoying a second life on the American grindhouse circuit. Co-starring Tina Aumont (Salon Kitty) and Luc Merenda (The Violent Professionals), the film finds its director at the top of his game, delivering copious levels of violence, sleaze and one of the tensest cat-and-mouse games ever committed to celluloid!

    Starring Finnegan Oldfield, Grégory Gadebois and Vincent Macaigne. BBFC link IMDb

    BBFC cuts were required for 15 rated cinema release and DVD in 2018.

    The BBFC commented:

    • Cuts required to remove potentially indecent images of a child in accordance with the Protection of Children Act 1978.

    The BBFC further commented in board meeting minutes:

    Reinventing Marvin is a French drama submitted for cinema classification which features a scene in which the central character is subjected to a sexual assault by an older boy at school.

    The Head of Compliance requested proofs of age for the actors involved, which confirmed the central character is played by an actor who was 15 at the time of filming while the older boy is played by an actor who was 18.

    The scene was viewed again by the President and Chief Executive who concluded that the scene includes a potentially indecent image of a child within the meaning of the Protection of Children Act 1978. Accordingly, a cut was required.

    The company appealed against the proposed cut, submitting documentary proof that included parental consent and information about the child protection steps taken on set.

    The scene was viewed again by the President, Chief Executive, Head of Compliance and Compliance Manager in the light of those further assurances. However, it was concluded that the fact the film makers did not intend to create an indecent image does not alter the fact of the indecency of the image in question. The cut was upheld and has now been made.

    Promotional Material

    In 1963, Robert De Niro stepped in front of a movie camera for the first time. The resulting film, a low-budget black and white comedy called The Wedding Party , would take three years to complete, and another three years to be released, but it would also establish a hugely important working relationship for the aspiring actor. One of the filmmakers, long before he became synonymous with suspense thanks to Carrie, Dressed to Kill and other classics, was Brian De Palma. He and De Niro would team up again in the next few years for two more comedies, both with a countercultural bent.

    Greetings , the first film to receive an X certificate in the United States, is a freewheeling satire focusing on a trio of twentysomething friends a conspiracy theorist, a filmmaker, and a voyeur played by De Niro as they try to avoid the Vietnam War draft. Hi, Mom! , originally named Son of Greetings, returns to De Niro s voyeur, now an aspiring maker of adult films, for another humorous glimpse at late-sixties society, this time turning its attentions to experimental theatre, cinéma vérité, the African American experience, and the white middle classes.

    Brought together for the first time and each newly restored by Arrow Films especially for this release these three films offer a fascinating insight into the early careers of two American cinema s major talents.

    Released 50 years after its Broadway debut – a year before the Stonewall riots - The Boys in the Band still has the power to shock.

    Dr. George Dumurrier is looking for money to expand the San Francisco based clinic he runs with his brother. He is also having an affair with Jane, a glamorous fashion photographer. When Dumurrier's wife Susan dies following an asthma attack, leaving him a million dollar insurance pay-out, it seems that all his problems are solved - until an anonymous phone call sends him to the Roaring 20s strip club where he is astonished to discover that its featured performer, the dangerously desirable Monica Weston, looks exactly like his dead wife. As he tries to unravel this mystery, George learns that the police are now investigating his wife's death and that he is under suspicion of murder.

    Bloodlust - The world Blu-ray premier of a sick 1970s shocker!

    Haunted by a childhood trauma… a deaf mute accountant develops a fixation with blood spilling across his skin. Brief flirtations with ketchup and red ink seem to satisfy him at first, but he soon develops a taste for the real thing. Though he nurses a weird fascination for a neighbourhood girl who passes the time by dancing on the rooftop, he remains socially withdrawn with his co-workers and can't even find comfort in the arms of a hooker. One night he breaks into the property of the local undertaker and ravages the prettiest female corpse. Now addicted, he habitually raids the tombs of the dead and drinks blood from their throats via a spiked, double pronged glass straw. Authorities and citizens are incensed by these crimes and the search is on for this modern day vampire.

    BLOODLUST is one of the darkest and most affecting horror movies to come out of 1970s Europe. Based on the macabre true story of Kuno Hofmann, the "Vampire of Nuremberg", the film plays like a kind of grown up fairy tale, albeit one that includes bloodsucking, eyeball evisceration and voyeuristic lesbian sex scenes among a host of other activities. Cut and banned in many countries, this is the full length version in all its gruesome, gory, glory.

    • 2018 Arrow Video (RB) Blu-ray at UK Amazon released on 19th November 2018

    Promotional Material

    Legendary Toei director Teruo Ishii tells three stories of moral sickness set during Japan s prosperous Genroku era in this bloody follow-up to his sexploitation classic Shogun s Joy of Torture, and the fourth entry in Toei s abnormal love film series. Ishii s politically incorrect moral lessons paint a trio of tales of tragic heroines caught up in violence, sadomasochism, incest and torture.

    Told in anthology style by an impassive physician (Teruo Yoshida), the first story follows Oito (Masumi Tachibana), an innocent young girl deceived by a handsome yakuza and sold into prostitution who finds herself in a doomed love affair with the man who brought her to ruin. The tale of Ochise (Mitsuko Aoi) is about the daughter of a rich merchant whose insatiable appetite for filth and perversion draws her deeper into violence, darkness and betrayal. Finally, the story of Omitsu (Miki Obana) follows a sadistic lord (Asao Koike) whose eye is caught one day by a beautiful member of his harem who shares his strange taste for pain and blood, but who holds a secret of her own that will destroy his entire household.

    A stylistic about-face from the director s prior work for Toei on the successful Abashiri Prison action series starring Ken Takakura, Ishii s erotic films grew increasingly shocking, violent and strange, and Orgies of Edo finds him combining period film detail with carnivalesque grotesquerie to create his own particular vision of love and sex. This landmark ero-guro film allowed Ishii to experiment with elements that would later show up in his masterpieces Horrors of Malformed Men and Blind Woman s Curse, including the participation of sideshow performers and butoh dancer Tatsumi Hijikata.

    Amid a brooding rock & roll landscape, the Bombers motorcycle gang, led by the vicious Raven Shaddock (Willem Dafoe, John Wick), kidnap diva Ellen Aim (Diane Lane, Man of Steel). Her hope for rescue lies with unlikely heroes: soldier of fortune Tom Cody (Michael Paré, Bad Moon) and his sidekick, the two-fisted beer-guzzling McCoy (Amy Madigan, The Dark Half). Joined by Ellen's manager, Billy Fish (Rick Moranis, Ghostbusters), the trio plunges headfirst into a world of rain-splattered streets, hot cars, and deadly assassins.

    This cult favorite features a razor-sharp cast and original songs written by Jim Steinman, Stevie Nicks, Tom Petty and Ry Cooder and performed by The Blasters and The Fixx. Directed by cult filmmaker Walter Hill (The Warriors, Southern Comfort, 48 Hrs.), Streets of Fire is a rock & roll shotgun blast to the senses.

    From the imagination of Oscar-winning director Guillermo del Toro (Pan s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water) comes Crimson Peak, a lavish, stunningly realised journey into the dark heart of Gothic romance...

    Beginning in Buffalo, New York, during the 1880s, Crimson Peak stars Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland, Stoker) as Edith Cushing, an aspiring writer who is haunted by the death of her mother. Edith s falls in love with seductive stranger Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston, Avengers Assemble), who whisks her off to Allerdale Hall, his baronial, yet dilapidated English mansion built upon a mountain of blood-red clay. Here Edith meets Lucille (Jessica Chastain, Zero Dark Thirty), Thomas s sister who at times seems hostile and jealous. As Edith struggles to feel at home in the imposing residence, she gradually uncovers a horrendous family secret and encounters supernatural forces that will help her discover the terrible truth behind Crimson Peak.

    Boasting incredibly intricate and ornate production design and a rich visual style, del Toro s film is a grandiose, boldly baroque triumph of Gothic decadence, which expertly combines and contrasts the sublimely beautiful with the shockingly grotesque. Crimson Peak is presented here in sumptuous special packaging, with a wealth of extra features, affording unprecedented insight in to the making of this modern Gothic classic.

    As any self-respecting slasher buff will know, Paramount Pictures hit pay-dirt with their all-time teen-kill classic FRIDAY THE 13TH (1980). Yet, when the time came to capitalise on the same cycle that the studio instigated, the brain-trust opted to take a more satirical turn and the result was STUDENT BODIES - unleashed to cinemas in 1981. Dubbed as 'the world's first comedy-horror film', STUDENT BODIES won an instant and eternal fan following for its effective nods to a series of slice and dice denizens, including HALLOWEEN (1978), the Voorhees mythology and PROM NIGHT (1980). Long before SCREAM (1996), this was the original movie that asked audiences to tick-off the tributes - and, with its tongue firmly placed in its cheek, STUDENT BODIES remains a riotous viewing experience! Class is in session and everyone is invited to enjoy the latest, and possibly greatest, addition to the 88 Films' Slasher Classics collection!!

    Long before superhero movies were packing out multiplex cinemas, Freddy Krueger creator Wes Craven followed-up the success of Richard Donner's SUPERMAN (1978) with this fondly remembered DC adaptation that brings a comic book favourite to livid and lunatic life! Following the success of THE HILLS HAVE EYES (1977), SWAMP THING was also evidence of its director trying to adapt his style to less rough 'n' ready thrills and spills - and the result is an adventure thriller that highlights not just a mutant-monster with good intentions, but such sights as the timeless terror-star Adrienne Barbeau (THE FOG), future Twin Peaks star Ray Wise and David Hess (THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT) in one of his best-remembered villainous turns. Released in 1982 to an appreciative cult following, SWAMP THING remains one of Craven's most mesmerising achievements - with a faithful DC-comic outlay and plenty of action-packed special effects that hold their ground even today. 88 Films is delighted to present SWAMP THING in a very special edition BluRay release that packs a pristine punch and highlights this creature feature classic in all of its bayou-tinged brilliance!
