Woman Chasing the Butterfly of Death

Catalog #: MDO197
UPC #: 843276019792
Format: Blu-ray
SRP: $29.95
Subtitles: English
Audio Format: PCM Mono

Plot Summary:

Like a kind of crazy cinematic ghost train ride, Woman Chasing the Butterfly of Death take us on a journey deep into the darkness of one man’s fears and fantasies. That man is Young-gul, a lonely and rather morbid student in late 1970’s South Korea. Narrowly surviving a murder-suicide attempt by a woman wearing a butterfly pendant, he next finds himself besieged by a seemingly insane bookseller who claims he can never die. Even after Young-gul burns the man’s body his skeleton comes back to taunt him. As if that weren’t enough, the poor student then finds himself the victim of a beautiful thousand year old woman (she looks about 25) who says she is hungry and wants to eat his liver….

The director, Kim Ki-young, was one of Korea’s most successful film makers. His 1960 production The Housemaid is now a recognized classic of world cinema. With this film he goes far beyond the bounds of the real and takes us into a world where anything seems possible, a world where a kind of dream logic rules. Almost impossible to summarize, the film is nevertheless insanely enjoyable. A real one of a kind production that opens our eyes to the limitless possibilities of cinema.

Subtitles:
Audio Format: Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo

Plot Summary:

An unsung talent in her lifetime, director, professor and Fulbright scholar Nietzchka Keene’s stark, stunning debut feature THE JUNIPER TREE is loosely based on a Brothers Grimm fairy tale of the same name, and stars Björk in her first on-screen performance. The film premiered to glowing reviews at the Sundance Film Festival in 1991 and led Keene to further direct HEROINE OF HELL (1996) starring Catherine Keener and BAREFOOT TO JERUSALEM (2008), the latter completed after her tragically early death in 2004.
 
Set in medieval Iceland, THE JUNIPER TREE follows Margit (Björk in a riveting performance) and her older sister Katla (Bryndis Petra Bragadottir) as they flee for safety after their mother is burned to death for witchcraft. Finding shelter and protection with Johan (Valdimar Orn Fygenring), and his resentful young son, Jonas (Geirlaug Sunna Pormar), the sisters help form an impromptu family unit that’s soon strained by Katla’s burgeoning sorcery. Photographed entirely on location in the stunning landscapes of Iceland in spectacular black-and-white by Randy Sellars, THE JUNIPER TREE is a deeply atmospheric film, evocative of Carl Theodor Dreyer’s DAY OF WRATH and Ingmar Bergman’s THE VIRGIN SPRING, and filled with indelible waking dream sequences (courtesy of legendary experimental filmmaker Pat O’Neill). A potent allegory for misogyny and its attendant tragedies, THE JUNIPER TREE is a major rediscovery for art house audiences.
 
New restoration by the Wisconsin Center for Film & Theater Research and The Film Foundation, with funding provided by the George Lucas Family Foundation.

Plot Summary:

Only 4,000 units with an Exclusive Slip Case and Bonus CD soundtrack!

In the mid-‘90s, Dario Argento approached a physically and professionally ailing Lucio Fulci to direct one final production, an over-the-top shocker about grisly murders at a Paris wax museum. But when Fulci passed away only weeks before filming began, Argento turned to Sergio Stivaletti – the FX genius on PHENOMENA, OPERA, DEMONS and CEMETARY MAN – to make his feature-directing debut.

 Original Grand Guignol director/performer Robert Hossein (RIFFIFI) and Aldo Massasso (CONTRABAND) star in what DVD Drive-In hails as “Old-timey luridness married to state-of-the-art gore.” From a screenplay co-written by Fulci with cinematography by Sergio Salvati (ZOMBIE, THE BEYOND), and now featuring a 4k scan from the original negative supervised by Stivaletti.  Packed with Special Features that include rare behind-the-scenes footage, all-new interviews and more!

Plot Summary:

In the mid-‘90s, Dario Argento approached a physically and professionally ailing Lucio Fulci to direct one final production, an over-the-top shocker about grisly murders at a Paris wax museum. But when Fulci passed away only weeks before filming began, Argento turned to Sergio Stivaletti – the FX genius on PHENOMENA, OPERA, DEMONS and CEMETARY MAN – to make his feature-directing debut.

 Original Grand Guignol director/performer Robert Hossein (RIFFIFI) and Aldo Massasso (CONTRABAND) star in what DVD Drive-In hails as “Old-timey luridness married to state-of-the-art gore.” From a screenplay co-written by Fulci with cinematography by Sergio Salvati (ZOMBIE, THE BEYOND), and now featuring a 4k scan from the original negative supervised by Stivaletti.  Packed with Special Features that include rare behind-the-scenes footage, all-new interviews and more!

42nd Street Forever: The Peep Show Collection Vol. 31

Thousands of these underground movies were made between the 1960s and 1980s and sold in the back of sex magazines or distributed to the almost 60,000 private "peep show" booths located in adult stores in most major cities.
 
Impulse Pictures is proud to present 42ND STREET FOREVER - THE PEEP SHOW COLLECTION VOL. 31, a new, continuing series of salacious 8mm shorts, re-mastered from original film prints.

Andrea Palmer (Katrina Zova) spends her days working as a cam girl. After having an online breakdown, she receives an unexpected and too-good-to-be-true offer to come to Los Angeles and work full time as an erotic model. Jumping on what seems like a perfect opportunity for financial independence, Andrea immediately travels to LA but no sooner than arriving, discovers that she's been conned and finds herself stranded and alone. Relying on what she knows best, she begins working as an escort, losing a bit of herself with each new client and becoming more and more willing to perform the most vile of sexual services; a decision which can only end in tragedy and violence.

Photographed in 16mm and co-starring Sheena Rose, Chad Alva, and the legendary William Margold in his final on screen performance, PORTRAITS OF ANDREA PALMER presents a nightmarish glimpse into a sexual hell where pleasure, pain, and perversity all blend into one.

Plot Summary:

Severin Films presents NIGHT KILLER – For the first time ever on Blu-ray and DVD!

Somewhere between ZOMBIE 4 and TROLL 2, writer/director Claudio Fragasso , here under the name ‘Clyde Anderson’, set out to direct a suspense thriller about a suicidal beauty, an unstable sleazebag and a masked killer with a razor-fingered glove. But when the producers received Fragasso’s cut, they hired his former partner Bruno Mattei (THE OTHER HELL, ROBOWAR) to shoot additional scenes of graphic gore and released it in Italy as TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 3.

 The result is part sicko giallo, part depraved slasher and 100% batsh*t insanity that Euro Fever calls “Disturbing, nasty and more inspired than most Italian horror of the early ‘90s.” Peter Hooten (INGLORIOUS BASTARDS) and Tara Buckman (SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT) star in this glorious slice of ItaloSleaze, co-written by Rossella Drudi (SHOCKING DARK), now scanned in 4k from the original negative.

Paris, Summer 1979. Anne (French pop star Vanessa Paradis) produces third-rate gay porn.

But one of her actors is brutally murdered and Anne gets caught up in a strange investigation that turns her life upside-down. Shot on 35mm and featuring a killer retro score from M83, Yann Gonzalez’s KNIFE+HEART is an ultra-stylish and blood-soaked ode to ’70s-era De Palma, Argento, and Friedkin.

Plot Summary:

Arbelos Films Presents MUTUAL APPRECIATION – Indie auteur Andrew Bujalski’s character study of 20-somethings in contemporary New York City – never before released on Blu-ray!
 
An instant critic’s darling upon its release in 2006, MUTUAL APPRECIATION is at once an utterly timeless and distinctly mid-aughts portrait of the ebb and flow of twenty-something life in New York City. Richly observed and deeply humanist, the film follows Alan (Justin Rice), an aspiring musician, who crash-lands in town following the breakup of his band in Boston, immediately taking up with his old friends Ellie (Rachel Clift) and Lawrence (writer-director Andrew Bujalski) while negotiating the affections of a local radio DJ (Seung-Min Lee). In the tradition of Éric Rohmer, John Cassavetes and Jacques Rivette, Bujalski crafts a deft yet unassuming generational statement that finds its inspiration less in plot than in sharply drawn relationships and captivating conversations. Lovingly lensed in intimate 16mm black & white film, MUTUAL APPRECIATION is a generous and witty ode to the friendships that hallmark our awkward and enthralling post-collegiate years.
 
Mutual Appreciation, along with 2002’s equally lauded FUNNY HA HA, signaled the triumphant arrival of indie auteur Bujalski, who has gone on to write and direct a suite of critically acclaimed features including BEESWAX (2009), COMPUTER CHESS (2013), RESULTS (2015) and 2018’s SUPPORT THE GIRLS.

Supermodel-turned-porn-queen Lilli Carati (Joe D’Amato’s THE ALCOVE) and Zora Kerova (ANTHROPOPHAGUS, CANNIBAL FEROX) star in this politically charged filth-fest – also known as JAILBIRDS and WOMEN AGAINST WOMEN: A STORY OF SEX AND VIOLENCE – from writer/director ‘Conrad Brueghel’ (aka Italian actor Giovanni Brusadori of EMANUELLE, QUEEN OF THE DESERT), now featuring a new 4k scan of a dupe negative seized from notorious NYC distributor 21st Century Film Corp.

Plot Summary:

Severin Films presents DEATH WARMED UP Limited Edition – The original New Zealand splatter epic remastered for the first time ever! Only 3,000 units with an exclusive Slip Cover!

Three years before Peter Jackson’s BAD TASTE, a young New Zealand filmmaker sprayed international movie screens with brains, blood and bizarre body fluids for the first splatter movie in Kiwi history. Director David Blyth (WOUND, GHOST BRIDE) launched his genre career with this relentlessly graphic – and still-intense – story of mad doctors, nude teens, psychotic mutants, shotgun murders, power drill lobotomies, explosive action and punk attitude that AXS.com calls “weird, wonky and one hell of a ride that will have gorehounds howling!”
 
Michael Hurst (HERCULES: THE LEGENDARY JOURNEYS), Bruno Lawrence (THE QUIET EARTH) and Ian Watkin (DEAD ALIVE) star in this landmark gore thriller from “New Zealand’s master of transgression” (Fangoria), now remastered by Blyth himself from the only existing elements and loaded with exclusive new Special Features.

HEMISHPERE BOX OF HORRORS is a limited, numbered edition release of only 3500 units.

Though best known for their legendary BLOOD ISLAND Trilogy, the Philippine/U.S. production/distribution company Hemisphere Pictures was also responsible for some of the most provocative and insane films of the ‘60s and ‘70s drive-in/grindhouse era. THE BLOOD DRINKERS and CURSE OF THE VAMPIRES are the still-potent masterpieces from The Father of Philippine Horror Gerry de Leon. BRAIN OF BLOOD is the all-star Grade Z classic from infamous exploitation auteur Al Adamson. THE BLACK CAT and TORTURE CHAMBER OF DR. SADISM – starring Christopher Lee and Tarzan – are Hemisphere’s two most extreme acquisitions for the company’s notorious double-feature packages. The films in this collection have all been newly scanned in 2K/4K from the best – and often only – complete elements available.

Plot Summary:

Severin Films Presents BRAIN OF BLOOD - The Al Adamson Shock/Schlock Classic !

By 1971, drive-ins across America were clamoring for a new BLOOD ISLAND movie. But with de Leon/Romero busy creating the 'machete maidens' genre, Hemisphere instead turned to writer/producer/distributor Sam Sherman (SATAN'S SADISTS) and director Al Adamson (BLOOD OF DRACULA'S CASTLE) to deliver a comparable saga of gruesome shocks and mad doctor mayhem. The result - the only Hemisphere production to be shot outside the Philippines - remains the insane epitome of low-budget '70s horror and one of Adamson's most infamous epics. Kent Taylor (BRIDES OF BLOOD), Grant Williams (THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN), Regina Carrol (ANGELS' WILD WOMEN), John Bloom (THE INCREDIBLE 2 HEADED TRANSPLANT), Angelo Rossitto (FREAKS) and Zandor Vorkov (DRACULA VS. FRANKENSTEIN) star in this "great bloody film" (Grindhouse Database) - also known as THE CREATURE'S REVENGE and THE OOZING SKULL - now featuring a new 2k CRI scan.

Plot Summary:

Mondo Macabro's Exploitation Double Bill Release THE WILD PUSSYCAT plus THE DESERTER

The WILD PUSSYCAT is an unsung classic of exploitation cinema. Produced in Greece in 1968, it was not officially released there until 1972 and then only in a cut and compromised version. The simple plot concerns a women whose sister was exploited and driven to suicide by a sleazy pimp. In order to get revenge on him the woman seduces the man, drugs him and imprisons him in a sound proofed room, tormenting him through a large one way mirror (he can see out, no-one can see in) by performing sultry strip tease dances and having sex with men and women while he can only look on, helpless to stop it or join in. Her final vengeance on him is so shocking it raises eyebrows even today. 

In spite of its lurid subject matter and explicit visuals, THE WILD PUSSYCAT was not a low budget quickie with a cast of unknowns and a first time film maker. It was directed by Dimi Dadiras, one of the most successful director/producers of the period, and it features one of the big stars of Greek cinema - Gisela Dali, known in her day as "the Greek Bardot".

The Blu-ray includes both the 1972 Greek version (with much of the sex removed and a plot featuring a drug dealing con inserted) and the full on, uncut export version. So essentially there are three films on the disc.
THE DESERTER, a rarely seen Greek production from 1970, is a fascinating and powerful film about a young soldier who escapes from a seemingly endless war only to find himself trapped in an emotional and sexual battle between two desperate women. One of them, Ermina (played by Italian star Franca Parisi), is stuck in a loveless marriage with a boorish farmer who plans to make his fortune by selling cheap hootch to soldiers. The other - much younger - woman, seems to live in a bizarre and dangerous fantasy world. She is played by famous Greek singing star Alexandra Kyriakaki. The great Gisela Dali "the Greek Brigitte Bardot" also stars in this production, in a small but unforgettable role as a witch who casts a love spell on the soldier.

As Victor readies himself for his desperately needed dead-end job interview, the consequences of his lifestyle catch up with him.

Plot Summary:

Severin Films presents INVASION OF THE BLOOD FARMERS - The '70s grindhouse classic now scanned from the original negative with new bonus materials!

In 1972, a team of New York City exploitation outlaws that included Ed Adlum (SHRIEK OF THE MUTILATED), Ed Kelleher (PRIME EVIL) and Michael & Roberta Findlay (THE TOUCH OF HER FLESH, SNUFF) - along with first-time assistant cameraman and future award-winning cinematographer Frederick Elmes (ERASERHEAD, BLUE VELVET) - descended on bucolic Westchester County with 8½ bottles of stage blood to make a movie about a Druid cult seeking to resurrect their dead queen. The budget was $24,000. The cast was paid in beer. And the result remains one of the greatest achievements in schlock/shock cinema history. Severin Films is proud to present this "accidental masterpiece" (Horror News) like you've never seen it before, now scanned from the original negative for the first time ever and spurting with all-new Special Features.

Plot Summary:

Severin Films presents INVASION OF THE BLOOD FARMERS - The '70s grindhouse classic now scanned from the original negative with new bonus materials!

In 1972, a team of New York City exploitation outlaws that included Ed Adlum (SHRIEK OF THE MUTILATED), Ed Kelleher (PRIME EVIL) and Michael & Roberta Findlay (THE TOUCH OF HER FLESH, SNUFF) - along with first-time assistant cameraman and future award-winning cinematographer Frederick Elmes (ERASERHEAD, BLUE VELVET) - descended on bucolic Westchester County with 8½ bottles of stage blood to make a movie about a Druid cult seeking to resurrect their dead queen. The budget was $24,000. The cast was paid in beer. And the result remains one of the greatest achievements in schlock/shock cinema history. Severin Films is proud to present this "accidental masterpiece" (Horror News) like you've never seen it before, now scanned from the original negative for the first time ever and spurting with all-new Special Features.

Plot Summary:

Severin Films presents SKINNER – Uncut. Unrated. Unconscionable. The notorious ‘90s shocker scanned in 4k for the first time ever!

It’s been called “sleaze-oozing” (Flick Attack), “gut-churning” (The Bedlam Files) and “incredibly tasteless” (Cult Reviews). It featured the most intensely graphic scenes yet by KNB EFX Group (THE WALKING DEAD). Uncut, it remains perhaps the most disturbing and rarely seen shocker of the ‘90s.
 
Ted Raimi (XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS) delivers an unnerving performance as psycho drifter Dennis Skinner who wears flesh-suits he slices from doomed prostitutes, falls for a lonely young housewife (Ricki Lake of HAIRSPRAY fame), and is himself hunted by a horribly scarred survivor (an equally unhinged performance by Traci Lords). Richard Schiff (THE WEST WING) co-stars in this still-potent sickie from veteran television director and one-time Heidi Fleiss boyfriend, Ivan Nagy. Now scanned in 4k from the original camera negative and including the complete hooker-flaying sequence.

Plot Summary:

What could be scarier than an all-night “Horrorthon”? A group of film students finds out when they stage just such an event at an abandoned movie palace. In addition to the three features - MOSQUITO, THE ATTACK OF THE AMAZING ELECTRIFIED MAN and THE STENCH - they decide to screen a bizarre short called THE POSSESSOR, whose creator, Lanyard Gates, killed his family and set the theater on fire after its first showing. Maggie (Jill Schoelen, THE STEPFATHER) has been having frightening dreams that seem to be connected to THE POSSESSOR, and as the festival proceeds, the nightmare comes true for her and her friends as they are stalked and slain by a mysterious killer. Has Gates survived to continue THE POSSESSOR’s deadly legacy?
 
A loving homage to ’50s/’60s B-movies (the trio of flicks shown at the Horrorthon all have accompanying William Castle-style gimmicks), POPCORN is also an insanely fun horror/comedy in its own right. Pseudonymously written by Alan Ormsby (CAT PEOPLE, DEATHDREAM), who directed the films-within-the-film, it celebrates the joys of old-fashioned creature features and ’80s-style stalk-and-slay, with a great cast additionally including Dee Wallace Stone (THE HOWLING), Tony Roberts (AMITYVILLE 3-D), Ray Walston (THE STAND), Malcolm Danare (CHRISTINE) and Kelly Jo Minter (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 5). Pop some popcorn of your own and settle in to watch this new high-definiton transfer, which comes with a box full of bonus features!

Plot Summary:

Their place in history is undeniable. Hardcore 8mm stag films introduced explicit human sexuality to the public. Predating every other moving picture home format, these inauspicious productions provided not only a window to a whole other world, but also immediate relief for those not fortunate enough to make their fantasies into reality. Thousands of these underground movies were made between the 1960s and 1980s and sold in the back of sex magazines or distributed to the almost 60,000 private "peep show" booths located in adult stores in most major cities.

Impulse Pictures is proud to present 42ND STREET FOREVER - THE PEEP SHOW COLLECTION VOL. 25, a new, continuing series of salacious 8mm shorts, re-mastered from original film prints. This collection features fifteen classic "loops" with titles like “Poolside Pussy”, “Sisters in Heat”, “Suck Me Gently”, and more! Watch for adult film stars Seka, Linda Shaw, and Sue Pearlman, and a slew of unknowns in these raunchy rarities!

In 1963, nudie/roughie filmmakers Bob Cresse and Lee Frost (HOUSE ON BARE MOUNTAIN, LOVE CAMP 7) saw the U.S. grosses of MONDO CANE and quickly imported and adapted one of the most provocative and successful shockumentaries of the decade. Narrated by Academy Award® winner George Sanders (ALL ABOUT EVE) and featuring a legendary soundtrack by Riz Ortolani (Oscar®-nominated for MONDO CANE's 'More'), ECCO explores a world of sadism, delinquency, roller derby, extreme piercing, appalling stereotypes and the infamous Lapland-women-castrating-reindeer-with-their-teeth sequence, now scanned in 4k from the original inter-negative. Bonus feature THE FORBIDDEN is Frost & Cresse's rarely seen and totally insane 1966 fake Mondo, packed with staged scenes of Swiss lesbians, L.A. rapists, Parisian tarts and Nazi strippers, newly-transferred from the only known 35mm print in existence.

Severin Films presents MONDO FREUDO and MONDO BIZARRO - The Cresse/Frost mondo classics, now scanned in 4k for the first time ever!

In 1966, the notorious producer/director/distributor team of Lee Frost and Bob Cresse (HOT SPUR, THE SCAVENGERS) combined the extremes of the Mondo genre with their own depraved aesthetic to create two shockumentaries that put Olympic International on the map and changed the face of exploitation forever. Cresse himself narrates MONDO FREUDO, "A world of sex and the strange & unusual laws that govern it." Featuring Hollywood strippers, Tijuana hookers, London lesbians, Times Square satanists and topless Watusi clubs. In MONDO BIZARRO, the team's 'hidden cameras' go 'beyond-the-beyond' to expose Bahamian voodoo rites, Japanese massage parlors, Nazi theater, and an Arab sex slave auction that looks suspiciously like LA.'s Bronson Canyon. Both films have been scanned in 4k from the original Something Weird 35mm vault negatives.

Plot Summary:

Dr. George Dumurrier is looking for money to expand the San Francisco based clinic he runs with his brother. He is also having an affair with Jane, a glamorous fashion photographer. When Dumurrier’s wife Susan dies following an asthma attack, leaving him a million dollar insurance pay-out, it seems that all his problems are solved - until an anonymous phone call sends him to the Roaring 20s strip club where he is astonished to discover that its featured performer, the dangerously desirable Monica Weston, looks exactly like his dead wife. As he tries to unravel this mystery, George learns that the police are now investigating his wife’s death and that he is under suspicion of murder.
 
Masterfully directed by Lucio Fulci, PREVERSION STORY just predates LIZARD IN A WOMAN’S SKIN and is equally compelling, mysterious and seductive. This fully restored Blu-ray release is the longest version available.

Plot Summary:

Starker is the one man in a society of complacent people who can see the stifling control exerted on humankind by beings from another dimension. Living on garbage and in ever-changing disguise, he bounces from one person to another, trying to wake the world from its slavery. But as his ideas start to gain traction, he becomes the singular target of the Agency Director, a formidable dictator. Starker must race against advanced surveillance technology and evade countless agents to get his message out to the masses before he is neutralized by the forces of order.
 
As much entertaining science fiction as it is and illustration of chaos theory applied to human nature, and featuring pioneering computer effects by MacArthur Genius Grant winner Robert Shaw, SPLIT is the fiercely unique vision of savant mathematician and artist Chris Shaw.
 
Produced from a brand new 2K restoration from the original negatives, and including a never before released extended cut of the film.

Subtitles:
Audio Format: Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround

Plot Summary:

New 4K restoration. Dennis Hopper’s radical, much-mythologized lost masterpiece – widely unseen for nearly 50 years until now!
 
Consciously self-reflexive and co-written by Hopper and REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE screenwriter Stewart Stern, THE LAST MOVIE follows a Hollywood movie crew in the midst of making a western in a remote Peruvian village. When production wraps, Hopper, as the baleful stuntman Kansas, remains, attempting to find redemption in the isolation of Peru and the arms of a former prostitute. Meanwhile, the local Indians have taken over the abandoned set and begun to stage a ritualistic re-enactment of the production – with Kansas as their sacrificial lamb.
 
Among the most storied productions of the New Hollywood Era, Hopper was given carte blanche by Universal for his next directorial feature after the tremendous commercial success of EASY RIDER, and writer-director-star took the money and ran – literally – staging THE LAST MOVIE in Peru at farthest remove from the Hollywood machine, with an on-screen entourage in tow that included Kris Kristofferson, Julie Adams, Stella Garcia, Peter Fonda, Dean Stockwell, Toni Basil, Russ Tamblyn, Michelle Phillips and director Samuel Fuller.
 
Although it won a special award at the Venice Film Festival, THE LAST MOVIE would effectively end Hopper’s career for many years – the Hollywood establishment gleefully writing him off as a self-indulgent madman. Yet the movie remains thrillingly innovative and remarkably contemporary – influenced greatly by the work of Bruce Conner and the French New Wave, as well as the Pop and Abstract artists Hopper revered.
