Professor Quatermass, trying to gather support for Moon colonisation his project to colonize the Moon, is intrigued by the mysterious traces that have been showing up on his radar - meteorites crashing down?. Following them to the place where
they should be landing he finds a destroyed village, a mysterious factory too close to his designs for the Moon colony for comfort, and some strange, aerodynamic objects containing a mysterious, ammonia-based gas that infects one of his
assistants. Officially, the factory is producing synthetic food; but despite the veil of secrecy surrounding it Quatermass succeeds in finding out it harbours aliens with deadly designs on the Earth... Second in Hammer Films' trio of screen
versions for Nigel Kneale's classic 1950s BBC serials, with the same director and star as 1955's "The Quatermass Experiment".
Compulsory cut required to remove sight of a horse being tripped and falling onto its head and neck.
The Grand Duel is an archetypal spaghetti western which boasts many of the genre s classic hallmarks including action-packed gunfights, wild stunts and an impressive climactic showdown...
Genre stalwart Lee Van Cleef (The Big Combo, Day of Anger) stars as a gnarled ex-sheriff called Clayton who comes to the aid of young Philipp Wermeer (Alberto Dentice), a fugitive framed for the murder of a powerful figure called The Patriarch.
Clayton helps Philipp fend off attacks from bounty hunters in a series of thrilling shootouts before the two make their way to Jefferson to confront three villains known as the Saxon brothers, and reveal who really killed The Patriarch.
A complex tale of revenge penned by prolific giallo writer Ernesto Gastaldi (Torso, The Case of the Scorpion's Tail), The Grand Duel benefits from a beguiling central performance from Lee Van Cleef and assured helmsmanship from Giancarlo Santi
(assistant director to Sergio Leone on The Good, The Bad and The Ugly and Once Upon a Time in the West). Add to this brew a memorable and tuneful score by composer Luis Bacalov (Django, Milano Calibro 9) and the stage is set for one of the
grandest of all the Italian westerns.

Twenty years after David Cronenberg prophesised the dark side of the Internet age in Videodrome, acclaimed French filmmaker Olivier Assayas (Irma Vep) updated it for the New Millennium in his startlingly prescient Demonlover, a chilling
exploration of the nexus between sex and violence available at the click of a button.
Up-and-coming executive Diane (Connie Nielsen, One Hour Photo) lets nothing stand in her way when it comes to landing the lucrative Tokyo Anime contract for the Volf Corporation, guaranteeing worldwide exclusive rights to the latest in
cutting-edge hentai. Despised by her assistant (Chloe Sevigny, American Psycho) and engaged in a risky game of corporate espionage, her ruthless ambition meets its match in Elaine (Gina Gershon, Bound), the charismatic representative of an
American Internet porn company called Demonlover. However, the company is only the front for an online portal to the Hellfire Club, which gives its users control over the next big thing in interactive extreme pornography: real women, tortured
according to subscribers whims, in real time. Diane wants a piece of the action, and will stop at nothing to get it; but as she delves deeper into the twisted world of the Hellfire Club, reality slips away and the stakes of the game are raised
to the point of no return.
Armed with an iconic score by art-rock pioneers Sonic Youth, Assayas neo-noir/cyberhorror masterpiece is finally unleashed for the first time on Blu-Ray, with revealing extras and a new director-approved restoration.

FIRST PRESSING ONLY: Illustrated collector s booklet featuring new writing on the film by Anne Billson
First there was CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (1980)... Then came CANNIBAL FEROX (1981)... But somewhere in France, someone was already hatching a plot to cash-in on the Italian intestinal classics with CANNIBAL TERROR (1981). With no
budget, no professional actors and no flights to Amazonia, CANNIBAL TERROR instead gives us Deodato and Lenzi on a cash-strapped level and the end result is THE ROOM of cannibal movies!! Brilliant, banal and blood-soaked late night
entertainment, CANNIBAL TERROR was also one of the infamous 'video nasties' in the UK - showing that our beloved censors and moral guardians have little in the way of a sense of humour! However, this torrid tale of stranded tourists being hunted
by hungry natives is a work of demented genius that words can barely do service to - and it is our great pleasure to offer audiences another chance to see CANNIBAL TERROR, this time in a delirious HD special edition!
Much-missed by fans of quick-jack cinema, the late Jess Franco had a career in fear that veered between arty outings such as VAMPYRO LESBOS (1971) and the cheap and cheerful projects that includes the official 'video nasty'
DEVIL HUNTER (1980). Featuring a leading man turn from the Italian horror legend Al Cliver (ZOMBIE FLESH-EATERS/ THE BEYOND), DEVIL HUNTER is part Indiana Jones, part CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (1980) and all outrageous insanity as Franco throws-in
babes, bare-boobs and blood and native-battles in an attempt to keep audiences glued to the screen. For fans of cheese and sleaze, it does not get any better than DEVIL HUNTER - finally available for Franco enthusiasts and video nasty lovers to
reappraise in HD!
For years fans waited for the release of a sequel to Ruggero Deodato's trendsetting CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (1980) yet it would take almost a decade for THE GREEN INFERNO, also known as CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST 2, to arrive... and it
was not, perhaps, what followers of the cycle in Italian nasty native movies were expecting! Whilst Deodato's original benchmark critiqued the mondo film pseudo-documentary phenomenon, partly instigated by cinematographer and director Antonio
Climati (MONDO CANE/ SAVAGE MAN, SAVAGE BEAST), here the focus turns to satirising the hypocrisy and complexity of CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST itself! Directed by Climati, CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST 2 sees some enterprising adventurers traipsing into the Amazon
jungle in search of a missing professor and, in the interim, the youngsters encounter some indications that slavery and European colonialism is still robbing the Colombian rain forest blind! A mix of macabre images, scenic locations, castrations
and sly in-jokes, CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST 2 introduces some belated bad taste humour into familiar jungle territory and requires immediate reappraisal from tribal terror completists - which is a meal best served in glorious HD by the video nasty
enthusiasts at 88 Films!!

This work was originally seen for advice. The company was advised the film was likely to be classified 15 but that their preferred 12A classification could be achieved by removing bloody detail. When the film was submitted for formal
classification the bloody detail had been removed and the film was classified 12A.

Stranger in the House (DVD + Blu-ray) Directed by Pierre Rouve Once an eminent barrister, cynical drunkard John Sawyer (James Mason) leads a reclusive life, out of touch with the burgeoning youth movement of the mid-1960s.
But when his daughter Angela's (Geraldine Chaplin) boyfriend is wrongfully accused of murder, Sawyer decides to confront his demons and the changing world around him in order to defend him. Featuring striking camera work from Academy
Award-winner Kenneth Higgins and co-starring music legend Bobby Darin, this intergenerational drama (based on a novel by George Simenon) is a cult British classic ripe for rediscovery.

Sister Street Fighter: Hanging By a Thread is a 1974 Japan action crime film by Kazuhiko Yamaguchi.
Starring Etsuko Shiomi, Tamayo Mitsukawa and Michiyo Bandô.
Rightfully cut by the BBFC for 18 rated Blu-ray in 2019. Uncut and MPAA Unrated in the US but surely not a good idea to import it into the UK.
BBFC Cuts required to remove potentially indecent images of a child.
Thanks to James:
The villain of the movie has a large framed photo of a reclining naked pre-pubescent girl hung up on their wall in the background of a scene and is pretty prominent throughout, probably talking up half of the screen space.
So it's not really a surprise that it's been cut. In fact I'm curious how they have handled the cuts because it's prolonged and prominent enough that removing all frames with it in would render the scene un-watchable. I'm assuming they will
have to mask it out rather than remove the footage (which is probably why they haven't mentioned the length of the cuts).
We would like to take this opportunity to let UK fans know that our upcoming release of Sister Street Fighter: Hanging By A Thread, will be censored (not cut) in one scene. This is due to a potentially indecent image of a minor used as set
decoration in the lair of one of the villains - visible in one shot for approximately 31 seconds which the BBFC advised breached the Protection of Children Act 1978.
As this scene features important expository dialogue, instead of cutting it out completely we have decided to zoom into the other half of the frame, cropping out the offending part of the image entirely. The US edition will be unaffected.
Apart from this, all four films in the set will be released for the first time in the UK in all their bloody, bone-snapping uncut glory, including the gore and weapons scenes cut from previous UK releases of the first film! The US edition will
After the massive success of The Street Fighter , the Toei Company decided to build a new karate series around a female lead, and cast a young actress who had appeared in a cameo role alongside her mentor Sonny Chiba. Still a teenager at
the time, Etsuko Shihomi exploded onscreen in her first leading role and created a new character type: a tough fighter who was fierce, fearless, good-hearted, and decidedly non-sexualised, a departure from Toei s typical formula.
In 1974 s Sister Street Fighter , Shihomi is the half-Chinese, half-Japanese Li Koryu, who travels to Yokohama to investigate the disappearance of her brother, an undercover cop. Li discovers a smuggling ring run by a drug lord with his
own personal army of deadly fighters, and must penetrate his evil lair with the help of a fellow karate master (played by Chiba). Shihomi and director Kazuhiko Yamaguchi ( Wolf Guy ) made two additional films based on the same character
over the next year, Sister Street Fighter: Hanging By A Thread and Return Of The Sister Street Fighter , with a final unrelated follow-up ( Sister Street Fighter: Fifth Level Fist ) helmed by original Street Fighter director Shigehiro Ozawa appearing in 1976.
Genre entertainment of the highest order, the Sister Street Fighter films are a wild ride through some of the best exploitation cinema Japan produced in the 1970s. Funky and over-the-top, filled with wall-to-wall action, and featuring
some of the craziest villains ever depicted onscreen, the series embodies female power in a male-dominated genre and is a magnificent showcase for the physical presence and martial arts skills of its lead star.
