From the film vaults of Eurociné--the mind-boggling company that brought you Zombie Lake, Crimson, and Orloff and the Invisible Man--comes this riotous French/Spanish co-production, originally titled La perversa caricia de Satán ("The Perverse Caresses of Satan")! When the Countess de Moncourt (Night of the Howling Beast's Silvia Solar) is left destitute by the suicide of her husband, she resumes her former identity as Claire Grandier--comely Goth and medium! Teaming up with Dr. Gruber (Eurociné regular Olivier Mathot), a down-on-his-luck telepath, they accept an invitation from an eccentric duke to stage a séance at his candle-lit castle, as a follow-up to a funky fashion show of hilarious "avant garde" wear. Impressed by Claire's command of the supernatural, the duke invites her and Gruber to room at his chateau. Working from a dank cellar with the help of a lascivious dwarf, Claire--aided by Gruber's telepathic powers--succeeds in reanimating a pauper's mutilated corpse and sending it on a mission of revenge...but how will she control this doddering zombie should Gruber succumb to his weak heart? Devil's Kiss was the first and only horror film directed by "Georges Gigo"--the French pseudonym of Spanish-born Jorge Luís Gigó Aznar, who can be seen as the fashion show announcer. A moody mélange of Frankenstein, Dracula, Lovecraft, and Munster cheese, it's the sort of atmospheric, lecherous, ultimately insane witch's brew that could only come from the cauldrons at Eurociné! -- Tim Lucas

The last defence. The last hope. The battle for the future of the world has begun.

In the 1980s, faced with the demise of the drive-in and the rise of the multiplex, New World Pictures the independent studio established by Roger Corman increasingly relied on smaller-scale productions, made with an eye to the cable TV and home video markets. Among these was Def-Con 4, an example of so-called Canuxploitation or Canadian exploitation cinema, riding on the coat-tails of the boom in post-apocalyptic disaster movies that began in the previous decade.

Two months after the planet is ravaged by nuclear war, astronauts Howe (Tim Choate), Jordan (Kate Lynch, The Twilight Zone) and Walker (John Walsch, Blow Out) are forced to return to earth now an apocalyptic wasteland consumed by radiation and roamed by cannibal gangs. Forced into desperate pacts with unlikely allies, among them eccentric survivalist Vinny (Maury Chaykin, WarGames), the astronauts must draw on all their resourcefulness to survive this brave new world.

Bearing more than a passing resemblance to George Miller s Ozploitation classic Max Mad, Def-Con 4 is an inventive and action-packed low budget sci-fi romp, elevated by a pounding score by New World stalwart Christopher Young (Hellraiser) and making its UK High Definition debut with this brand new restoration from Arrow Video.

    IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE, THE TERROR BEGINS.

    When a space shuttle crew finds a mysterious spacecraft containing three human-looking creatures in a state of suspended animation, they bring them back to Earth for further investigation.

    It's only then that scientists discover that they are in fact a race of space vampires that feed off people's life-force rather than their blood. So when they escape and run amok in London, the consequences are apocalyptic - and the shuttle crew's only survivor (Steve Railsback) seems to be the only man who can stop them.

    Based on Colin Wilson s novel The Space Vampires , co-written by Dan O Bannon (Alien, Return of the Living Dead) and directed by Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Poltergeist), this lively sci-fi horror romp has a stellar cast including Peter Firth, Frank Finlay and Patrick Stewart - although it's Mathilda May's appearance as a naked female alien that attracts most attention to this day.

    Dare you say his name five times? From the chilling imagination of horror master Clive Barker (Hellraiser, Nightbreed), comes Candyman - one of the greatest horror movies of the '90s, now newly restored on Blu-ray from Arrow Video

    When grad student Helen Lyne (Virginia Madsen) begins working on a thesis about urban legends, she comes across the terrifying tale of the Candyman - a vengeful, hook-handed spirit who 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 well alone.

    Expertly directed by British filmmaker Bernard Rose (Paperhouse) 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 groundbreaking Books of Blood series) into a modern horror parable that remains as timely today as ever.

    Restored in 4K from the original lm negative, Jacques Rivette's THE NUN (1965), initially banned in France, can now be seen in all its revolutionary glory. Adapted from Denis Diderot's novel, it follows a rebellious nun (played by an incandescent Anna Karina) who is forced into taking her vows. Initially shunted into a restrictive, torturous convent, she eventually moves on to a more liberated one, where she becomes an object of Mother Superior's (Liselotte Pulver) obsession. Banned for over a year by the French Minister of Information, and not released in the United States until 1971, it slowly became a landmark of the French New Wave, and with this stunning restoration, should also become an object of worship.

    Push the Button. You ll Know When.

    Welcome to Thames, New Zealand. Population: 7,518 and falling. Unless of course you re Johnny (Anton Tennet), the new member of a local gang led by Shelton (Jonathan Brugh, What We Do in the Shadows). He s multiplying.

    After Johnny is foiled in an effort to double-cross Shelton at his own game of masterminding the sleepy town s unsurprisingly tame criminal underbelly, he inadvertently steals an ancient bracelet with which he can turn back time and in the process create multiple clones of himself. This gives Johnny the ability to literally form his own gang against Shelton s. The only problem is: how can you learn to live your best life, when you re also having to figure out which one of you exactly that is? Oh, that and there s a demon after him for bending the rules of time, physics and just general common sense.

    Tim van Dammen directs this 80s-throwback supernatural crime caper, dubbed by critics as a grounded sci-fi mini-odyssey with lots of creativity and even more laugh-out-loud gags , in which a brilliant ensemble works with sharp dialogue to deliver an endearingly odd and endlessly entertaining slice of Kiwi life.

    The original New Zealand splatter epic remastered for the first time ever!

    Three years before Peter Jackson's BAD TASTE, a young New Zealand filmmaker sprayed international movie screens with brains, blood and bizarre body fluids for the first splatter movie in Kiwi history.

    Michael Hurst (HERCULES: THE LEGENDARY JOURNEYS), Bruno Lawrence (THE QUIET EARTH) and Ian Watkin (DEAD ALIVE) star in this landmark gore thriller from "New Zealand's master of transgression" (Fangoria), now remastered by Blyth himself from the only existing elements and loaded with exclusive new Special Features.

    On the heels of the 'official' Sylvia Kristel sequel EMMANUELLE II and a year before his own first Laura Gemser/EMANUELLE film, EuroFilth maestro Joe D'Amato (BEYOND THE DARKNESS) took the entire formula to new depths of depravity.

    When a cold-hearted stud (George Eastman of ANTHROPOPHAGUS infamy) drives her sister to suicide, Emanuelle (Rosemarie Lindt of SALON KITTY and WHO SAW HER DIE?) plots a seduction that includes sodomy, torture, J&B, lesbianism, cannibalism, meat cleavers and a super-groovy '70s soundtrack. Maria Rosaria Riuzzi (IMAGES IN A CONVENT) and Massimo Vanni (ZOMBIE 3 & 4) co-star in this still-extreme sex sickie - also known as EMANUELLE'S REVENGE, DEMON RAGE and BLOOD VENGEANCE - co-written by D'Amato with fellow filth maven Bruno Mattei (SHOCKING DARK) and now featuring a 2k scan from the original negative.

They are, apparently, friends of the neighbors, and, at the beginning, their true intentions are not known, but soon, the family is imprisoned and tortured in its own house violently, which the viewers are forced mostly to imagine and to share a certain complicity with the criminals.

    Director Teruo Ishii (Blind Woman s Curse, Horrors of Malformed Men), the Godfather of J-sploitation, presents Yakuza Law (AKA Yakuza s Law: Lynching) a gruelling anthology of torture, spanning three district periods of Japanese history and bringing to the screen some of the most brutal methods of torment ever devised.

    In this deep dive into the world of the Yakuza, meet the violent men who rule the Japanese underworld and the cruel punishments inflicted on those who transgress them. The carnage begins in the Edo Period with a violent tale of samurai vengeance starring Bunta Sugawara (Battles Without Honor and Humanity), before shifting to the Meiji Period as the exiled Ogata (Minoru Oki, Shogun Assassin) returns to face punishment for his past transgressions... and, ultimately, to take his revenge. Finally, the action is brought right up to date with a tale of gang warfare set in then-present-day 60s Japan and headlined by Teruo Yoshida (Ishii s Orgies of Edo), as a powerful crime syndicate seeks bloody vengeance for the theft of one hundred thousand yen.

    IN VIETNAM THEY FOUGHT FOR THEIR COUNTRY. NOW, THEY RE FIGHTING FOR THEIR FRIENDS.

    As the 1980s rolled on, a new, bullish attitude to war took hold in America, the weary cynicism of the previous decade giving way to an unabashed celebration of military might. Numerous filmmakers and producers sought to capitalise on the emerging mood... among them New World Pictures, the company founded by the legendary Roger Corman.

    In The Annihilators, the war comes home as a group of army vets, battle-scarred from their travails in the jungles of Vietnam, are forced to dust off their combat moves once again when one of their own meets his demise at the hands a violent criminal gang. Deciding that enough is enough, the self-styled Annihilators, led by the redoubtable Bill (Christopher Stone, The Howling, Cujo), set out to equip the beleaguered citizens of downtown Atlanta with the skills they need to rid their streets of crime and vice.

    Directed by Charles E. Sellier Jr. (Silent Night, Deadly Night) and co-starring Gerrit Graham (Phantom of the Paradise) and Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs (Death Wish), The Annihilators is a brash, no-holds-barred slice of vigilante justice from the golden age of B-movie action.

    Promotional Material

    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.

    Promotional Material

    One of the most inventive, magical, and also exceedingly funny films of recent international cinema, November evokes influences as varied as Guy Maddin and The Brothers Grimm, Bela Tarr and Jan vankmajer, while also remaining wholly and deliriously original. It's unlike anything else you've ever seen and that's even if you've seen a bunch of black-and-white Estonian fairy tale films.

    Young Lina and Hans are preparing to marry in their village in the woods, when Hans becomes entranced by the arrival of a visiting baroness. Love spells are conjured so that each receives their intended mate, but there are more sinister things afoot. Death can visit in the form of a farm animal...but it's fine because one can hide by wearing trousers on the head. And, besides, the dead can come back to the village and chat anyway...although when the devil arrives, don't try to cheat him. And then there are the "kratts" supernatural servants made from discarded bones, tree branches, and trash...just make sure to give them work to do, or else.

    Director Rainer Sarnet 's unique, hypnotic, and whimsical film has been a smash at film festivals, and once you fall under its spell, you'll see why. A contemporary film already destined for multiple viewings and passionate cults, November will be haunting your dreams and tickling your funny bone for years to come.

    When a Polish prostitute is brutally murdered in Nazi-occupied Warsaw, her killer is identified only as a German general. For years the crime remains unsolved, until the killer strikes again, bringing this mesmerising mystery to an unforgettable finish.

    Also starring Tom Courtenay, Donald Pleasence and Christopher Plummer , and with a score by Maurice Jarre , The Night of the Generals is an all-star thriller from a master of the form, and Eureka Classics is proud to present the film in its UK debut on Blu-ray.
