One of the great lost masterpieces of Japanese animation, never before officially released in the U.S., BELLADONNA OF SADNESS is a mad, swirling, psychedelic light-show of medieval tarot-card imagery with horned demons, haunted forests and La Belle Dame Sans Merci, equal parts J.R.R. Tolkien and gorgeous, explicit Gustav Klimt-influenced eroticism. The last film in the adult-themed Animerama trilogy produced by the godfather of Japanese anime & manga, Osamu Tezuka and directed by his long time collaborator Eiichi Yamamoto (ASTRO BOY and KIMBA THE WHITE LION), BELLADONNA unfolds as a series of spectacular still watercolor paintings that bleed and twist together. An innocent young woman, Jeanne (voiced by Aiko Nagayama) is violently raped by the local lord on her wedding night. To take revenge, she makes a pact with the Devil himself (voiced by Tatsuya Nakadai, from Akira Kurosawa's RAN) who appears as an erotic sprite and transforms her into a black-robed vision of madness and desire.
SHE IS WATCHED. SHE IS WORSHIPPED. AND SHE MUST REMAIN A MYSTERY.
In the early eighties British enfant terrible Ken Russell travelled to America and placed his unorthodox imprint on a pair of US movies. The first was the Altered States, so out-there its screenwriter disowned it. The second was the equally crazy Crimes of Passion, starring Kathleen Turner (Body Heat, Serial Mom) at the height of her powers.
Fashion designer Joanna Crane (Turner) leads a double life. By night she is China Blue, a prostitute who s attracted the unwanted attention of two men. One is a sexually frustrated private detective hired by her employees. The other is psychopathic priest (played by Norman Bates himself, Anthony Perkins) in possession of a murderous sex toy.
With its outré screenplay by Barry Sandler and over the top score by Rick Wakeman, Crimes of Passion may just be the most outrageous Ken Russell film ever made and that s quite some feat!
Jack Hill spent the seventies specialising in tough female characters. He made movies about girl gangs (Switchblade Sisters) and women in prison (The Big Doll House, The Big Bird Cage), turned Pam Grier a star with Coffy and Foxy Brown, and contributed to the Cheerleaders line of drive-in favourites with The Swinging Cheerleaders.
Kate, an undergraduate at Mesa University, goes undercover as a cheerleader for her college newspaper in order to expose female exploitation in contemporary society . But instead of oppression she finds love, friendship and a bigger fish to fry: corruption in the football team, headed up by the coach and his pals.
A favourite of Quentin Tarantino, who screened it at the very first Tarantino Film Fest, The Swinging Cheerleaders features a cast of cult favourites including Colleen Camp (Wayne s World, Game of Death), Rainbeaux Smith (Caged Heat, The Incredible Melting Man) and future Playmate of the Month Rosanne Katon.
John (John Leslie), est un mari fidèle mais il est également très désappointé par sa femme qui est frigide. Un jour, une femme frappe à la porte de John et lui propose une petite boîte bleue.

Enter the sinister world of corporate greed, where wealthy men use and abuse beautiful women for their sadistic and perverse pleasures.
Jill's (Tish Ambrose) life has been reduced to nothing more than an on-call prostitute, charged with taking care of the other girls in the corporation's illicit harem. But as her secret pen pal relationship with Winston, a mild mannered park ranger with a violent past, grows into something more sensual, Jill begins to realize that with Winston's help, she may be able to destroy the evil empire holding her hostage…
This lavishly produced, sex filled film features an all star supporting cast, including Amber Lynn, Sheri St. Claire, Jamie Gillis, and Harry Reems. Vinegar Syndrome presents Corporate Assets, newly restored from its original negative and fully uncut for the first time on home video.
Embauché pour éliminer un couple, le tueur à gages Frank Zimosa découvre à sa grande stupeur que les rôles vont s'inverser, à son désavantage. L'hôtel où il était prévu qu'il se débarrasse de ses victimes se transforme en un véritable enfer.
John Lithgow goes bananas in a crazed multiple role as a child psychologist haunted by his deranged twin in this film from Brian De Palma (who explored similar territory in his earlier feature SISTERS). Inspired by Hitchcock as well as Michael Powell's classic PEEPING TOM, this study in abnormality has child psychologist Dr. Carter Nix (Lithgow) beginning to go bonkers around his young daughter. Wife Jenny (Lolita Davidovich) is a little concerned but too guilty over her affair with another man (Steven Bauer) to do anything about it. It's not until local children start disappearing that Jenny begins to realize that her husband might be continuing the demented experiments performed on him as a child by his own father, an infamous psychiatrist who's been wanted by the police for years. As the number of missing children rises, it is up to Jenny to unravel just what is going on before her own daughter vanishes as well. The highlight here is Lithgow, creepy and magnificent in not less then three distinct roles. It's a gleefully insane little chiller that features some great De Palma set pieces and will keep even dyed-in-the-wool suspense fans guessing.

The legendary horror star Paul Naschy (WEREWOLF SHADOW) is back to his frightening antics in CRIMSON, a splatterfest with a very complicated plot. When a band of criminals botch a jewel heist, their leader is shot in the head. A strange local physician devises a bizarre solution to his injury--murder an enemy and use HIS brain as a transplant. The horrors continue when the brain turns out to be that of a diabolical murderer.
Horror legend Paul Naschy (Werewolf Shadow, School Killer) stars in this outrageous combination of medical horror, heist action, and dark eroticism. After a jewel robbery goes horribly wrong and their leader, Jack (Naschy), is shot in the head, a band of thieves goes to a local doctor for help. To save their friend's life, the criminals devise a unique solution: kill their psychopathic worst enemy, toss his body onto a railroad track in front of an oncoming train, and use the severed head for a brain transplant! Unfortunately the unwilling donor, the Sadist, turns Jack into a raging lunatic bent on murder and destruction!
A rare science fiction film made in National Socialist Germany, Karl Hartl's GOLD is a high-tech thriller dramatizing the ongoing war between scientific progress and corporate greed (resurrecting some of the themes and spectacle of Fritz Lang's Metropolis). Hans Albers stars as Professor Holk, an idealistic scientist developing the process of atomic fracturing, constructing an enormous electrical device to transform common lead into gold. When the operation is sabotaged by corporate rivals, resulting in the death of Holk's mentor (Friedrich Kayssler), Holk must accept the backing of a ruthless English businessman, John Wills (Michael Bohnen), whose interest in atomic fracturing is purely economic. Though he makes a deal with the devil, in order to continue his research, Holk recognizes it as a golden opportunity not for a paycheck, but for payback and plots to destroy Wills's titanic gold-making machinery. While Holk enacts his revenge, he captures the interest of the millionaire's rebellious daughter (Brigitte Helm, Metropolis), who is enthralled by the scientist's vision and integrity. GOLD is not only a handsomely-produced drama of corporate espionage, it also reveals the ways in which English and American culture was subtly condemned in films made under the Third Reich.

The films of Roger Corman are often as well-known for their behind-the-scenes stories as they are the ones unfolding on the screen. He famously made Little Shop of Horrors in just two days using sets left over from A Bucket of Blood and shot The Terror over a long weekend because bad weather prevented him from playing tennis. But none of these tales is quite so complex, or quite so extraordinary, as the making of Blood Bath.
The saga began when Corman invested in a Yugoslavian Krimi-like picture entitled Operation Titian just prior to it going into production. Insisting it be filmed in English, he sent actors William Campbell and Patrick Magee, and uncredited story editor Francis Ford Coppola (all fresh from Dementia 13), to Dubrovnik to make a US-friendly movie but wasn t satisfied with the end results. First it was re-cut and re-scored to create Portrait in Terror, a film more in line with drive-in tastes, then it was handed over to Jack Hill (Spider Baby), followed by Stephanie Rothman (Terminal Island), each undertaking reshoots that resulted in a vampire picture by the name of Blood Bath. One final twist was provided when a TV version was required, chopping scenes and adding others to create Track of the Vampire.
For this release Arrow Video has searched through the vaults to bring you all four versions of Blood Bath, newly restored from the best materials available to provide a definitive release of one of Corman s craziest ventures.
