Few film directors have mastered the art of suspense, thrills and intriguing plot twists the way that John Brahm (Hangover Square) did when Helga Hammond (Heather Angel, The Informer) hears about a legend whereby a male member of her family is about to be sacrificed every few years, she discounts the legend as nonsense. But when Helga's brother, Oliver (John Howard, Lost Horizon) is attacked by a horrific beast that is part man and part wolf, it appears that the legend is true. When Scotland Yard inspector (James Ellison, I Walked with a Zombie) investigates the link between the werewolf and the family, he discovers an even more shocking truth! One of the film s key features is the gorgeous cinematography by the great Lucien Ballard (The Lodger).

Based on the best-selling manga series, the six intensely kinetic Lone Wolf and Cub films elevated chanbara to bloody, new heights. The shogun’s executioner, Itto Ogami (Tomisaburo Wakayama), takes to wandering the countryside as an assassin—along with his infant son Daigoro (Akihiro Tomikawa) and an infinitely weaponized perambulator—helping those he encounters while seeking vengeance for his murdered wife. Delivering stylish thrills and a body count that defies belief, Lone Wolf and Cub is beloved for its brilliantly choreographed and unbelievably violent action sequences as well as for its tender depiction of the bonds between parent and child.

Marking TV star Daphne Zuniga s debut in a leading role, The Initiation ranks amongst the finest of the college-based stalk-and-slash flicks now finally restored in glorious High-Definition!
Kelly s new sorority has a special initiation ritual in store for her an after-hours break-in of her father s department store. But what begins as a night of harmless college fun turns sour when, once inside the enormous mall, Kelly and her fellow pledges find themselves locked in for the night... with a deadly intruder stalking the corridors.
Arriving in 1984, The Initiation might have been late to the slasher party, but, alongside the likes of The House on Sorority Row and The Mutilator, it remains one of the stronger entries to emerge in the latter days of the slice-and-dice boom.
The tough guy hero of the 40s and the excitement of the 80s come together in this dazzling remake of the classic Mickey Spillane (The Girl Hunters) thriller, I, THE JURY. Straight from the school of the hard-boiled detective comes private eye, Mike Hammer played by the ruggedly sexy Armand Assante (Q&A). Hammer sets out to get the guys who did in his friend Jack his quest for vengeance leads him onto the paths of the CIA, a sexy doctor and a kinky killer. All along the way, there are spectacular chases and incredible excitement. Richard T. Heffron (Futureworld) directed this first-rate action-packed thriller with a screenplay by Larry Cohen (Maniac Cop) and a strong supporting cast featuring Barbara Carrera (Never Say Never Again), Laurene Landon (...All the Marbles), Alan King (Casino), Geoffrey Lewis (Thunderbolt and Lightfoot), Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas) and Judson Scott (TV s The Colbys and V).
After the success of THE BOOGEYMAN (1980) - a slasher classic that carved its way to box office riches and video nasty notoriety - director Ulli Lommel was all too happy to reunite with starlet Suzanna Love for another bout of blood thirsty brutality... and the result is 1983’s PROZZIE, also know as OLIVIA and Double Jeopardy. Regardless of the moniker, this superb slice and dice sickie is one of the most underrated knife-play pot boilers ever imagined... with Love portraying a femme fatale that has a damaged background and a wonderfully skillful way with sharp utensils. Let’s put it this way: you may well want her to undress... but the chances are that it is her who will be doing the penetrating! Whilst THE BOOGEYMAN might be Lommel’s most famous freak-show, PROZZIE is his most outrageous orgy of sex and violence and only 88 Films, the label that seeks out forgotten splatter flicks and restores them in awesome HD, could have understood the need for a new generation to see this crimson-caked gem in all of its hi-def delirium!!! See PROZZIE and admire a timeless mix of curves and carnage!

n a word: huh?
Back in the Sixties, it was not uncommon for foreign films to be recut for release on the sexploitation circuit by having additional skin scenes edited in. But this grimy little turd has enough skin, violence, and decadence on display that no U.S.-shot inserts were needed or added. Nevertheless, something is terribly amiss here. Though we’ve never seen the French original, we can only assume that Massacre of Pleasure didn’t quite measure up to the gloriously low standards set by BOB CRESSE’s Olympic International Films which, presumably, recut the film to eliminate scenes that didn’t involve skin, violence, or decadence. The result is an often surreal crime epic -- which occasionally feels like a French Findlay film -- that delivers the goods except for any semblance of coherence, continuity, or common sense. Scenes begin and end abruptly, characters pop up only to be chased and killed, and the vague storyline seems to wander and change every couple of minutes. Add to that minimal dubbing (with fake French accents), unhelpful narration, and long stretches of creepy silence, and you’ve got something that plays like the fever dream of a two-bit punk who’s seen too many gangster flicks.
Aided by a sadistic thug named Pretty Boy and a lesbian bodyguard (with the hots for a little Japanese gal), Captain Jules (who looks like a flea-ridden fisherman) decides to take over a motley criminal organization run by “The Fat Man.” This he does by ordering hits on... well, a variety of men and women we know nothing about except how they die. (Instead of being killed, one sexy gal is kept shackled in a garage like a pretty ornament and, for all we know, is still there today.)
Pretty Boy (who, by the way, isn’t) visits Florence, a junkie in need of a fix, and, thinking she’s a police informer, cuts her throat. He then stops by a black gal’s apartment and shoots up in the bathroom while she dances and releases her breasts. But -- surprise! -- it’s the black gal who’s the informer, and she tells the cops about a shipment of narcotics due to arrive at a docked showboat full of kinky rich sophisticates: “A harboring place for every conceivable type of human driftwood -- perverts and pimps, prostitutes, addicts, and murderers!” The police raid the boat which so rattles The Fat Man that he whips a woman until her tits are bloody.
The organization in shambles, Jules switches gears and sets up an even bigger deal which involves trading women for drugs. Currently short of females, Jules gets the girls he needs by inviting them to a “costume party” aboard his boat. In the blink of an eye, there’s a swinging soiree with guys in togas and gals dressed as Indian maidens all running around like the party guests in House on Bare Mountain. Drugged refreshments are served, and Jules and his boys eventually row a boatload of half naked gals with feathers in their hair to a deserted beach in Marseilles....
