NIGHT OF THE DEMON (1980)

“REALLY DELIGHTFUL,
UNBELIEVABLY GORY
A triumph in oddball sleaze, like a more insane GRIZZLY.” - Oh, The Horror!

Amid the gush of early ‘80s low-budget backwoods horror, only one lost classic brought together softcore sex, hardcore violence, Satanic sex cults and a limb-tearing, gut-slinging, dick-ripping beast for “the best and bloodiest Bigfoot movie ever made.” (Buried.com): When a group of Anthropology students heads deep into the forest to investigate a series of Sasquatch attacks, they’ll discover an immortal brain-blast of crazy hermits, mutilated Girl Scouts, interspecies copulation and “one of the goriest final scenes in the whole history of splatter flicks” (A Slash Above). Producer/co-writer Jim L. Ball and director James C. Wasson deliver “an anti-masterpiece that moves like a bullet, unlike anything you’ve ever seen” (Mondo Digital) now scanned in 2K from the recently discovered 35mm answer print with over 5½ hours of Special Features on two discs.

THE FORBIDDEN DOOR (2005) 

“AS SLICK AS IT IS SICK... An example of what movies could be but rarely dare to try.” - Richard Corliss, Time Magazine

With his third disturbing feature, Joko Anwar – Indonesian
writer/director of IMPETIGORE and the remake of SATAN’S SLAVE – became
one of the most daring new genre filmmakers in the world. Now discover why: As a successful young sculptor increasingly loses his grip on sanity, he imagines his wife, friends and family are all conspiring against him, begins filling his best-selling works with unspeakable human matter, becomes obsessed with brutal hidden-camera abuse videos,
and inches inescapably closer towards the most horrific final act of all. Fachry Albar (V/H/S/2), Marsha Timothy (THE RAID 2) and Ario Bayu (THE QUEEN OF BLACK MAGIC) star in this “almost perfect film – eerie, terrifying and just begging to be seen” (The Focus Pull), now on disc with exclusive Special Features for the first time ever in America.

From writer/director/FX fabricator Kenneth J. Hall (PUPPET MASTER,
EVIL SPAWN, CARNOSAUR) comes the ultimate union of graphic gore, evil nuns, relentless nudity, sexual depravity, Lovecraftian carnage and

bonehead cops, aggressive lesbians and a secret dungeon where naked
runaways are sacrificed to a one-eyed Cthulhu. Janet Tracy Keijser

“DEODATO’S RETURN TO SHOCK CINEMA…From the very first scene, this is a merciless portrait of a degenerate generation.” - Quinlan.it

For his first film in 23 years, Ruggero Deodato – the legendary
director of such ItaloSleaze classics as CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, HOUSE ON THE EDGE OF THE PARK and RAIDERS OF ATLANTIS – explored a different breed of butchery inspired by the Perugia exchange student murder that shocked the world: After a wild night of sex, drugs and clubbing, a young woman, her boyfriend and his dealer pal wake to find her straight-laced roommate brutally murdered. But will what happens next reveal the most horrific secrets of all? Cinematographe.it calls Deodato’s ripped-from-the-headlines return “a disturbing thriller that’s violent, cynical and excessive,” featuring a pounding score by Claudio Simonetti (SUSPIRIA, DEMONS), with 2+ hours of startling new Special Features and available in America for the time ever.

HOUSE ON THE EDGE OF THE PARK (1980) 

“UNRELENTING PSYCHOLOGICAL HORROR…Total unabashed exploitation cinema from Ruggero Deodato, as controversial as his CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST.” - Starburst Magazine

For his follow-up to CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, director Ruggero Deodato delivered a shocker packed with even more cruelty and controversy. 40+ years later, it remains one of the most disturbing exploitation films of all time: David Hess of LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT infamy stars as a charismatic psychopath who, with his equally unhinged sidekick (Giovanni Lombardo Radice of CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD), turns a get-together of chic New Yorkers into an ordeal of class warfare and sexual violence.

BLOODY PIT OF HORROR (1965) 

“THE BELOVED CLASSICK FROM THE GOLDEN AGE OF ITALIAN HORROR…A breathtaking blend of cheesecake, pop art and Sadian excess.” - Frank Henenlotter, director of The BASKET CASE Trilogy

The most insane post-peplum psycho-sexual classic in Italian horror history just got even better: When the crew of a saucy photoshoot breaks into an abandoned castle, they will unleash the madness of the male-body-obsessed owner (muscleman Mickey Hargitay in the WTF? performance of his career) who is possessed by the vengeful spirit of a 16th century torturer. Walter Brandt (THE PLAYGIRLS AND THE VAMPIRE) and Femi Benussi (HATCHET FOR THE HONEYMOON) co-star in this hair-raising orgy of sadism – also known as THE CRIMSON EXECUTIONER – from director Massimo Pupillo (TERROR-CREATURES FROM THE GRAVE) and the screenwriters of KILL, BABY... KILL! with special effects by future Oscar® winner Carlo Rambaldi (E.T.), now scanned in eye-stabbingly stunning 2K from the original uncut negative recently discovered in a Rome lab vault.

BLACK CANDLES (1982)

“A MERRY-GO-ROUND OF SEXUAL DEVIANCE…It remains a gratifying starting point to discover an atypical director who delights in debauchery.” - Psychovision

With classics like WHIRLPOOL, SYMPTOMS and VAMPYRES, writer/director José Ramón Larraz explored bold new realms of erotic horror. But with his most infamous film of all, the late Spanish auteur defiled nearly every taboo of sexual mayhem: When a young couple visits in-laws in the UK countryside, they will instead discover a haven of the occult where lesbianism, incest, sodomy, bestiality and beyond may all be commanded by Lucifer himself. The legendary Helga Liné (NIGHTMARE
CASTLE, THE LORELEY’S GRASP), Carmen Carrión (THE INCONFESSABLE ORGIES OF EMMANUELLE) and Mauro Rivera (THE SEXUAL STORY OF O) star in this notorious orgy of Satanic depravity – also known as HOT FANTASIES, NAKED DREAMS and SEXUAL RITES OF THE DEVIL – now scanned uncut in 2K with all-new Special Features.

Special Features:
- Audio Commentary With Rodney Barnett And Troy Guinn, Hosts Of NaschyCast
- La Dama Del Fantaterror — Documentary Short On Actress Helga Liné By Filmmaker Diego López
