    THE HOWL OF THE DEVIL - The world Blu-ray premier of a lost horror classic!

    Spanish horror star Paul Naschy plays a multitude of roles in a tour-de-force performance in one of his last great films. He plays Hector Doriani a stage and screen actor who feels himself living in the shadow of his dead twin brother, Alex Doriani, the latter once a famous star of horror movies. Alex's young son, Adrian, now lives with Hector in his brother's isolated mansion in the countryside. To keep alive the memory of his father, the boy imagines himself visited by the spirit of the dead man, incarnated in a series of classic horror characters from the past. Eric, Alex Doriani's former butler, now also works for Hector. His main role is to locate and bring to the mansion a series of women who are paid large sums of money by Hector to take part in various sadistic sex games. To complicate matters even further, the games always seem to end with the women getting slaughtered in various gruesome ways by a black gloved, masked killer. Also on hand is horror diva Caroline Munro, as Hector's housekeeper and cook, who is being pursued by a local priest with whom she once had a much-regretted affair.

    One of the last films to be directed by Paul Naschy, THE HOWL OF THE DEVIL was, for many years, impossible to see in anything like its intended form. This first HD presentation of the film shows it at last in its true glory. One of Naschy's most savage and heartfelt films, its reappearance is an event worth celebrating.

    Mondo Macabro presents HUNTING GROUND - First ever Blu-ray release of a powerful and shocking story of revenge and retribution!

    Adele, a female lawyer, brilliantly played by Assumpta Serna, passionately defends criminals, believing that everyone deserves a second chance and that criminality is more often than not bred by deprivation. In the courtroom, a pair of local hoods sees her in action and decides to follow her. They steal her car, find the keys to her country villa and decide to rob the place. Unfortunately, Adele's family turns up at the villa mid-burglary and her husband is killed. But, that is only the beginning of the nightmare…

    Directed by Jordi Grau who made the horror classics BLOOD CEREMONY and LET SLEEPING CORPSES LIE, HUNTING GROUND is an intense, gripping crime story that takes a savagely realistic look at the social divide between rich and poor in the big city. The climax of the film is unrelenting in its depiction of sexual violence and revenge, and includes one of the most shocking sequences ever seen in a mainstream film.

    BAPHOMET tells the tale of an American family (the Richardsons) celebrating their daughter's pregnancy, but things begin to go awry when Satanic cult leader, Henrik Brandr unexpectedly visits their ranch. Henrik offers to pay the family a large sum for ownership of their land, claiming it is sacred to his congregation. Jacob Richardson, the father, rejects the offer due to the sentimental value of his ranch. Henrik, displeased, begins to put curses on the Richardsons, trying to force them off of their own land - even if it means murdering them. After suffering unexplainable tragedies created by the curses, the Richardsons seek help from Marybeth, a white witch high priestess. They soon discover a terrible secret about their house, revealing why their land is so scared to the cult. They realize that they must protect their house from the cult at all costs, and a violent battle between good and evil ensues.

    7 Sins is divided into seven segments, each one unique in its voice, acting, story, and style. While the seven deadly sins are cemented in Catholic Theology and are always the same, the interpretation by any single person is always different, and this assemblage is no exception. This film uses the themes within its subtext and introduces, and then wildly perverts, the punishments associated with the 7 Deadly Sins. The overall atmosphere is one of uneasiness that, in addition to a fair amount of disturbing visuals, is amplified by its pulse-pounding soundtrack.

After saving imperilled prostitute Maria (Loredana Nusciak), Django becomes embroiled in a brutal feud between a racist gang and a band of Mexican revolutionaries

    With Django , director Sergio Corbucci ( The Great Silence ) upped the ante for sadism and sensationalism in westerns, depicting machine-gun massacres, mud-fighting prostitutes and savage mutilations. A huge hit with international audiences, Django s brand of bleak nihilism would be repeatedly emulated in a raft of unofficial sequels.

    The film is presented here in its 4K UHD Blu-ray debut, with a wealth of extras. Also included is the bonus feature Texas, Adios on Blu-ray, which also stars Franco Nero, and was released as a sequel to Django in some countries.

    Duel is a 1971 USA TV mystery thriller by Steven Spielberg.
    Starring Dennis Weaver, Jacqueline Scott and Eddie Firestone. Youtube link  BBFC link 2020  IMDb

    Originally made as a TV movie. Recognising the director's talent, producers commissioned extra material to bring the film to feature length for a theatrical release. This theatrical version was later shortened for DVD and Blu-ray
    UK: The DVD Version was passed 12 uncut for moderate threat:

    Promotional Material

    Before spinning cinematic gold from sharks, dinosaurs and homesick aliens, a young Steven Spielberg directed this high-velocity thriller about an innocent motorist terrorised by an evil truck. Spielberg's first full-length movie, Duel, helped jumpstart the director's big-screen career, with a gripping, action=packed story hailed by critics as a film that '...belongs on the classics shelf reserved for top suspensers' (Daily Variety).

    Dennis Weaver stars as the travelling salesman waging a desperate battle for survival after he is mysteriously singled out for destruction. Praised for its deft use of relentlessly mounting psychological tension, Duel features one of the most uniquely terrifying "characters" in movie history: a massive, roaring 40-ton truck with more sheer menace than most flesh-and-blood villains.

    But Steven Spielberg was, literally, just getting started. A few years later, the action of Spielberg's blockbuster hit Jaws would echo Duel's tale of a lone hero in a heart-stopping fight to the finish against a monstrous, inhuman foe.

On the day he reaches the same age his father was when he died, Nicholas receives an unconventional birthday present from his estranged brother Conrad (Sean Penn): an invitation to play a mysterious game, the aim and rules of which are kept secret. As the game unfolds, Nicholas suddenly finds himself in a fight for his life, assisted by the enigmatic Christine (Deborah Kara Unger, Crash) but unsure of where to turn and who to trust.

    A group of college-aged ornithologists have taken a class trip deep into the wilderness on a quest to find and study a rare and possibly extinct species of bird. Despite receiving ominous warnings, both human and avian, they set up camp in a musty old house, only to find themselves under siege from mysterious supernatural forces. But it's not just the house or the hoards of hungry birds that they have to worry about, they quickly realize that they're also going to have to contend with a group of bloodthirsty zombies, who have descended on the deserted farmhouse!

    A positively jaw-dropping slice of late 80s horror, as only Italians are capable of imagining, Claudio Lattanzi's Zombie 5 (aka Killing Birds and Raptors) is an 'everything but the kitchen sink' styled thriller which piles on gore and insane plot twists. Starring Lara Wendel (Tenebre) and Robert Vaughn (The Man From U.N.C.L.E.), and produced by exploitation auteur Joe D'Amato (Anthropophagus), 88 Films brings Zombie 5 to Blu-ray newly restored from the original negative.

    The time is now. The place is aboard the U.S.S. Nimitz, America's mightiest nuclear-powered aircraft carrier on maneuvers in the Pacific Ocean. Suddenly, a freak electrical storm engulfs the ship and triggers the impossible: The Nimitz is hurtled back in time to December 6, 1941, mere hours before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. As the enemy fleet speeds towards Hawaii, the warship's Captain ( Kirk Douglas ), a Defense Department expert ( Martin Sheen ), a maverick Air Wing Commander ( James Farentino ) and a desperate Senator in the Roosevelt administration ( Charles Durning ) must choose between the unthinkable.

    An interdimensional portal exists between Herk Harvey's CARNIVAL OF SOULS and Doris Wishman's BAD GIRLS GO TO HELL ... and it's called LOVE AFTER DEATH . This is the story of Montel -- a sexually frustrated creep who seeks revenge on his cheating wife after she accidentally buries him alive. Produced somewhere in South America and remixed for American audiences by New York producer Charles Abrams, LOVE AFTER DEATH is a joyously deranged gem that features equal doses of gothic horror, sleazy melodrama, and absurdist experimentation. After watching this movie, you'll never look at Edgar Allan Poe's "The Premature Burial" the same way again.

    Shot in New York by LOVE AFTER DEATH producer Charles Abrams and starring adult film princess Jennifer Welles , THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE BEAUTIFUL is an unknown jewel from the bizarro underground. The movie centers around the estate of a politician, where blackmail and scissor-murders go hand in hand with smoking weed and fetish whippings. Combining a trashy paperback feel with gutter-goth mood, this psychosexual spectacle would feel right at home with the work of exploitation auteur Joe Sarno.

    Alien Invasions! Haunted Pianos! Sentient Monster Trucks! Arrow Video is proud to present the first ever collection of works by Bill Rebane, the epitome of an independent regional filmmaker who built his own studio in the wilds of Wisconsin. He acted for Hitchcock, he searched for the arms of the Venus De Milo, he turned a VW Beetle into a giant spider and he's still at work today!

    Bringing together six films, all new to Blu-ray and in brand new restorations, Weird Wisconsin: The Bill Rebane Collection packs in a mutant astronaut bothering blissful sunbathers (Monster A Go-Go), a contagion apocalypse as seen from the vantage point of a remote mountain cabin (Invasion from Inner Earth), deadly alien spores from the rocks of Mars (The Alpha Incident), rural gothic and outright horror (The Demons of Ludlow), an eccentric 'body count' movie (The Game) and a comedy smash-'em up that pits three hillbilly stooges against a talking Monster Truck with artificial intelligence (Twister's Revenge).

    Loaded with new interviews and extras, this is an essential collection of features from one of America's most tenacious outsider auteurs!

    Link Here

    Paranoia Agent is a 2004 Japan TV animation horror
    Starring Sh˘z˘ ╬zuka,Toshihiko, Seki,Michael, McConnohie Melon Farmers link BBFC link 2020 IMDb

    Cut by the BBFC for 18 rated DVD in 2006. The distributor reported that the video was passed uncut by the BBFC for 2021 Blu-ray. However this has not yet appeared in the BBFC database. Uncut and TV-MA rated in the US.

    Previous BBFC cuts from 2006

    See article from animenewsnetwork.com

    The BBFC requested the compulsory cut to the eighth part of Paranoia Agent, called Happy Family Planning. This a mostly self-contained story, a macabre black comedy. The story involves three people who meet online, intending to kill themselves together. Two of the trio are adult men, but they're shocked to realise the third person is a preteen girl, who seems to regard suicide as a game.

    In one scene, the three characters try to hang themselves in the mountain. In the unedited episode, the girl is shown bouncing happily up and down with the rope around her neck, chanting Swing! Swing! (finally, she breaks the tree branch, sending them all tumbling). However, this scene, lasting 80 seconds, was cut entirely from the UK DVD of the episode, following the ruling by the BBFC.

    Responding to inquiries about the cut in the past, the BBFC has made its reasoning clear. Although the relevant DVD was rated 18, the BBFC still judged that the scene of a child enjoying being hanged was irresponsible and harmful, and that underage children could be influenced by the scene.

    Summary Notes

    Seemingly unconnected citizens of Tokyo are targeted for bludgeoning by a boy with a golden baseball bat. As detectives try to link the victims, they discover that following the assaults, the victims' lives have improved in some way.

    Now you see him. Now you don't. The face of a killer appears out of the darkness and just as quickly disappears. A young woman has an eerie feeling someone is stalking her. Another beauty steps into a shower...and a bathroom door handle slowly turns. We're in slasher-flick territory--and also in a rare realm of film history, because screen icon Tom Hanks makes his movie debut in this shocker. The up-and-coming legend plays the brief supporting role of Elliot, a psych major whose musings about the nature of fear reinforce the tone of this twisted tale about a sicko who targets brides-to-be...and a detective who scrambles to stop the carnage. Wedded bliss can be very short-lived when He Knows You're Alone.

    The 2021 restoration restored the cut male nudity that was actually achieved by re-framing the scene. See article from dvdcompare.net :

    During post-production, director Amy Heckerling was forced to reframe the shot of Robert Romanus removing his underwear during the poolhouse scene approximately 58 minutes into the film to remove his nudity in order to avoid an X-rating. The Criterion release has restored her preferred framing for the first time.

    The wild world of adolescence has rarely been captured with as sharp an observational eye as in this refreshingly smart, frank spin on the teen comedy by director Amy Heckerling and screenwriter Cameron Crowe--for each of whom it kicked off a hugely successful film career. Based on Crowe's experiences going undercover as a student at a Southern California high school, Fast Times at Ridgemont High blends hormone-fueled hilarity with an almost sociological examination of the 1980s teenage experience: the shopping-mall hangouts, fast-food jobs, buzzkill teachers, awkward dates, and first experiences of love and sex. This pop-culture touchstone launched to stardom practically an entire cast of unknowns--including Jennifer Jason Leigh, Phoebe Cates, Judge Reinhold, Forest Whitaker, Anthony Edwards, Eric Stoltz, and Sean Penn as stoner icon Jeff Spicoli--and broke new ground in its raw yet sensitive depiction of the realities of coming of age.

Meanwhile, a chance encounter with an alluring woman (Abbie Cornish) at the town's rustic diner threatens to derail his mission in this noir-style cloak-and-dagger thriller.
