Prisonniers d’un éboulement pendant la construction du métro londonien, un groupe d’ouvriers victoriens survit dans les entrailles de la terre pendant plus d’un siècle, se reproduisant entre eux, mangeant leurs morts, cachés dans l’obscurité du tunnel effondré avec les rats et la crasse pour seuls compagnons… De nos jours (ou plutôt en 1973), « quelque chose » d’affreux a survécu : attristé par la mort de sa compagne (enceinte), le dernier survivant, descendant des victimes, assoiffé de sang et de vengeance, retrouve enfin son chemin vers la surface pour hanter les couloirs souterrains du métro, entre Holborn et Russell Square. Lorsqu’un homme politique distingué (James Cossins, faux inspecteur de Fawlty Towers !) disparaît sans laisser de traces, l’Inspecteur Calhoun (Donald Pleasence), policier vieux jeu et routinier mais tenace est chargé de l’enquête…
In deep space, the deadliest animal is still woman!
It’s a futuristic fight to the finish when the Commander of a space station prison (Jan Michael-Vincent, The Mechanic, White Line Fever) takes on galactic archvillain Kol (Ross Hagen, Avenging Angel). When Kol escapes, on the verge of his execution, the Commander has no choice but to unleash the Alienator – a ruthless android hunter with one unstoppable purpose: terminate Kol at any cost!
Kol’s shuttle crash-lands on Earth and the Alienator is hot on his trail. She is determined to capture her prey – even if it means blowing away everything and everyone in her path.
This sci-fi action film co-stars John Phillip Law (Barbarella), P.J. Soles (Carrie, Halloween, Rock ‘n’ Roll High School) and featuring female bodybuilder Teagan as the Alienator.
Helmed by legendary producer/director Ovidio Assonitis, the man behind such cult favourites as The Visitor and Piranha II: The Spawning, Madhouse is a crimson-soaked tale of sibling rivalry taken to a terrifying and bloody extreme.
Julia has spent her entire adult life trying to forget the torment she suffered at the hands of her twisted twin Mary… but Mary hasn’t forgotten. Escaping hospital, where she’s recently been admitted with a horrific, disfiguring illness, Julia’s sadistic sister vows to exact a particularly cruel revenge on her sibling this year – promising a birthday surprise that she’ll never forget.
An Italian production shot entirely in Savannah, Georgia, Madhouse (aka And When She Was Bad and There Was a Little Girl) fuses slasher elements with the over-the-top excess of ‘80s Italian terror – resulting in a cinematic bloodbath so gut-wrenching that the British authorities saw fit to outlaw it as a “video nasty”.
Directed by Tom Hanson, who had previously owned a chain of Pizza Man restaurants, The Zodiac Killer was made to capture the real-life Zodiac Killer. That plan didn’t work. Instead, we got the most outrageous and compelling “tabloid horror” vortex in the history of planet Earth. And beyond. During theatrical screenings, Hanson constructed in-theater “traps” to lure the killer from hiding. These included the use of an ice cream freezer filled with rent-a-cops and a raffle with a motorcycle as a prize. You won’t get insight like this by watching a David Fincher movie. But you will get it while watching The Zodiac Killer.
Bonus movie: ANOTHER SON OF SAM (1977)
In 16th century France, Inquisitor and magistrate Bernard de Fossey (Paul Naschy) travels to the plague-ridden region of Peyriac in search of witches and devil worshippers. Local beauty Catherine (Daniela Giordano) quickly catches his eye, tormenting him with impure thoughts, although her affections lie with her handsome fiancé Jean. Meanwhile, embittered one-eyed manservant Rénover (Antonio Iranzo) presents Bernard with his first group of torture victims when he accuses several sexy young things who spurned his advances of being witches responsible for the plague.
One by one beautiful women are tortured on the rack then burned at the stake. No-one seems able to halt the Inquisition's reign of terror or the baseless accusations that cause so many innocent deaths. When Jean dies in mysterious circumstances, Catherine allies herself with Satan to get revenge on her enemies - foremost among them, De Fossey himself.
Dans Zugeunerweisen (1980), deux intellectuels et anciens collègues de l'académie militaire entraînent leurs épouses dans de dangereux jeux érotiques.... Le coffret inclus également Kageroza (1981) et Yumeji (1991). Le triptyque compose une critique acerbe se déroulant durant la période 1912-1926.
Le comte de Kerauden, vieil original delaisse par tous depuis longtemps, decide de quitter le monde des vivants et se cache pour mourir. Ses heritiers, prevenus par le medecins, apprennent qu'il leur faudra attendre cinq ans un heritage dont ils avaient bien besoin.

Jane Hardy, a recently divorced teacher from San Francisco, decides to spend the summer at the large old country home willed to her by her aunt. However, upon arriving in the sleepy town where her aunt lived, she’s met with hostility from the locals and slowly begins to discover her aunt’s dark connections to witchcraft and the occult, all the while being menaced by a large black hearse that mysteriously drives near her house in the dead of night….
A chilling blend of supernatural horror and romantic mystery, THE HEARSE stars Trish Van Devere (THE CHANGELING), Joseph Cotten (SHADOW OF A DOUBT), and David Geautreaux (STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE) and was one of the few directorial efforts from prolific editor, George Bowers. Taking strong influence from European gothic horror films of the 1960s, THE HEARSE is a haunting and suspenseful, classically minded horror film and is proudly presented by Vinegar Syndrome on Blu-ray, newly restored in 2k from its original 35mm negative.
Dans Pussycat Ranch, deux braqueurs de banque trouvent refuge dans une ferme menacée de saisie.

You may have heard of this infamous Blaxploitation/Horror hybrid, but the real story is even more bizarre: In 1973, criminal-lawyer-turned-wannabe-monster-movie-mogul Frank R. Saletri wrote and produced this grindhouse hit about a Black soldier mortally wounded in Vietnam transformed into a rampaging monster by an L.A. mad scientist. Almost a decade later, Saletri himself would be murdered gangland-style in a crime that remains debated – and unsolved – to this day. John Hart (TV’s “The Lone Ranger”), ‘40s Hollywood starlet Andrea King (THE BEAST WITH FIVE FINGERS) and even former mob moll/stripper Liz Renay (DESPERATE LIVING) star in this jaw-dropper directed by William A. Levey (THE HAPPY HOOKER GOES TO WASHINGTON), now restored with all-new Special Features that spotlight the entire twisted saga!

Using Ben and his furry friends as instruments of retaliation, Willard commands his pets to carry out his vengeance…
The obscure film OBSESSIONS (aka A HOLE IN THE WALL) was directed by Dutch artsploitation auteur Pim de la Parra and co-produced by longtime collaborator Wim Verstappen (BLUE MOVIE). This gritty, psychedelic Hitchcockian mystery, which is notable for being the first Dutch film shot in English-language, starts in a savagely brutal fashion. When a bloody painting of Vincent van Gogh falls from a wall and exposes a makeshift peephole, student protagonist Nils Janssen (played by the film’s German co-producer Dieter Geissler) becomes an unwitting witness to a gruesome sex crime next door. When his young fiancée Marina (Alexandra Stewart of Truffaut’s DAY FOR NIGHT), an enterprising journalist, tells him about a report of a murder that she is writing, he naturally wonders if it’s the very same killing.
This classic exploitation film was the birth of auteur cinema in Holland, and inspired legendary filmmakers such as Paul Verhoeven to make their start in the industry. Originally distributed in over 100 countries, the film remained unreleased in the U. S. (and France) – until now. Perhaps most notably, the film was co-written by a young Martin Scorsese, who shot the legendary erotic dream sequence for his first feature WHO’S THAT KNOCKING AT MY DOOR (1968) in Amsterdam, that same year. Additionally, the film also stars legendary Dutch filmmaker Fons Rademakers (MIRA, THE ASSAULT), is edited by Henry Rust (CHILDREN OF PARADISE) and scored by Hitchcock composer Bernard Herrmann (TAXI DRIVER, SISTERS). OBSESSIONS is a curious cultural hybrid where late-1960s Dutch exploitation and classic Hollywood Hitchcock collide in a provocative and revolutionary fashion. Hitchcock, Scorsese & Sex. Made in Holland.

Yul Brynner plays the mysterious, gun-slinging anti-hero Sabata in 1971's ADIOS SABATA. Robberies, Mexican revolutionaries, tyranny, double-crossing, and Sabata's brand of Robin Hood-esque justice all come into play in this fun, stylish spaghetti Western from director Gianfranco Parolini.

They decide to try it out and play a round, but soon realize that doing so will require them to confront sinister forces.

Los ojos siniestros del doctor Orloff, Un silencio de tumba

Editeur: Mondo Macabro |
Deux films de Jess Franco : Los ojos siniestros del doctor Orloff, et Un silencio de tumba. Le premier se déroule sur une île déserte où une vedette de cinéma et ses amis sont assassinés les uns après les autres. Dans le second, William Berger tente de se débarrasser des héritiers de la famille de Lord Comfort. Pour y parvenir, il utilise Melissa (Montserrat Prous) dont il se sert comme d'un objet grâce à l'hypnose.
Based on the famous Victorian erotic novel of the same name, this film is equal parts style and substance as we are transported inside the erotic Victorian world of love and lust, all told by the smallest voyeur of all, a flea who inhabits the privates of a young girl. The erotic adventures of his host are narrated by the tiny storyteller and revolve around several lascivious priests who seduce young virgins turning them into sex machines. Truly an all-time classic.
In today's world of modern conveniences, everything we rely on is run by electricity. But what happens if the power we take for granted turns against us? Old man Holger (Charles Tyner) knows. He claims electricity is a living presence, whose voice can only be silenced by getting rid of anything that can hear it. Bill Rockland (Cliff De Young), however, refuses to believe him. It must have been an accident when an electric spark ruptured the gas pipe that nearly killed Bill's son (Joey Lawrence). And it's surely a coincidence when his wife (Roxanne Hart) is severely scalded by their electric water heater. But when his own power tools attack him and an electrical fire turns their home into a blazing inferno, Bill realizes Holger may have been right after all, and perhaps the time has come to finally pull the plug.
