Audio Format: DTS-HD MA 2.0 Stereo

Plot Summary:

Adele, a female lawyer, brilliantly played by Assumpta Serna, passionately defends criminals, believing that everyone deserves a second chance and that criminality is more often than not bred by deprivation. In the courtroom, a pair of local hoods see her in action and decide to follow her. They steal her car, find the keys to her country villa and decide to rob the place. Unfortunately, Adele’s family turn up at the villa mid-burglary, and her husband is killed. But that is only the beginning of the nightmare... Directed by Jordi Grau who made the horror classics Blood Ceremony and Let Sleeping Corpses Lie, Hunting Ground is an intense, gripping crime story that takes a savagely realistic look at the social divide between rich and poor in the big city. The climax of the film is unrelenting in its depiction of sexual violence and revenge and includes one of the most shocking sequences ever seen in a mainstream film.

Plot Summary:

Spanish horror star Paul Naschy plays a multitude of roles in a tour-de-force performance in one of his last great films. He plays Hector Doriani a stage and screen actor who feels himself living in the shadow of his dead twin brother, Alex Doriani – the latter once a famous star of horror movies. Alex’s young son, Adrian, now lives with Hector in his brother’s isolated mansion in the countryside. To keep alive the memory of his father, the boy imagines himself visited by the spirit of the dead man, incarnated in a series of classic horror characters from the past. Eric, Alex Doriani’s former butler, now also works for Hector. His main role is to locate and bring to the mansion a series of women who are paid large sums of money by Hector to take part in various sadistic sex games. To complicate matters even further, the games always seem to end with the women getting slaughtered in various gruesome ways by a black gloved, masked killer. Also on hand is horror diva Caroline Munro, as Hector’s housekeeper and cook, who is being pursued by a local priest with whom she once had a much-regretted affair. One of the last films to be directed by Paul Naschy, Howl of the Devil was, for many years, impossible to see in anything like its intended form. This first HD presentation of the film shows it at last in its true glory. One of Naschy’s most savage and heartfelt films, its reappearance is an event worth celebrating.

In 19th century Europe, the people are in the grip of ancient superstitions and the fear of vampires runs riot through the land. Strange rituals are enacted to seek out the resting places of the undead and macabre trials are held over disinterred corpses. The Countess barely notices what is going on. She is more concerned that her beauty is fading and that her husband seems only interested in his birds of prey and observing the behavior of the superstitious locals. Her faithful lady’s companion tells the Countess that there are ways to reignite her husband’s passion – and also ways to preserve her looks. She reminds the Countess of her ancestor, the notorious Erzebeth Báthory, who bathed in the blood of virgins to maintain her youth. The Countess is unsure, but then one day the blood of a servant girl drips onto her hand and she is convinced that her skin has become whiter as a result. Soon she is searching for more blood and to her surprise, her husband becomes the one to provide it for her. Director Jorge Grau’s film is rightly praised as one of the very best horror films of the 1970s. Beautifully directed, and acted by a skilled cast including award winning actress Lucia Bosè as the Countess and former Miss Teen International, Ewa Aulin, it is a fascinating and disturbing look into the heart of darkness.

Subtitles: English
Audio Format: Dolby Digital Mono

Plot Summary:

One of the greatest achievements in recent art house cinema and a seminal work of “slow cinema,” Sátántangó, based on the novel by László Krasznahorkai, follows the members of a humble agricultural community living in a bleak and punishing backwater after the fall of Communism. As a few of the villagers secretly conspire to take off with all of the community's annual earnings for themselves, a mysterious messiah, long thought dead, returns to the village and alters the course of everyone’s lives forever. Shot in stunning black-and-white by Gábor Medvigy and filled with exquisitely composed long takes, Sátántangó unfolds in twelve distinct movements, alternating forwards and backwards in time, echoing the structure of a tango dance. Béla Tarr’s vision, aided by longtime partner and collaborator Ágnes Hranitzky, is enthralling and his portrayal of rural Hungary beset by drunken revelry, treachery, and near-perpetual rainfall is both transfixing and uncompromising. Sátántangó has been justly lauded by critics and audiences as a masterpiece and has been restored on occasion of its 25th anniversary.

Plot Summary:

By day a mild-mannered businessman, in his dreams Boris Zaroff hunts naked females on his country estates, just like his notorious father. One weekend, two visitors arrive at Boris’s castle. The young girl is fascinated by tales of the wicked Zaroffs and asks if she can see their famous torture chamber. Maybe now the Zaroff dreams can become reality once more. Seven Women for Satan, originally titled The Wicked Weekends of Count Zaroff is a stylish and erotic horror film that was actually banned in France in the 1970s. Severely cut from its original running time and more or less forgotten for decades, the film now reaches Blu-ray in a stunningly restored new version created from the original negative. Complete with a host of extras and with many deleted and alternate scenes, this release shows the film, for the first time, in the form its maker intended. An extended version restores the film closer to its original running time and a nearly hour-long interview with cast member and assistant director Robert de Laroche gives a hugely entertaining and insightful view into the making of the film and the life and work of its creator Michel Lemoine.

Plot Summary:

Benoît Landrieux, the idle and depraved son of a rich industrialist has two chance encounters on the same day that will change his life forever: Jean-Pierre, a young tearaway who is trying to steal his car, and Isabelle, 20 years old, whom he saves from being raped by her stepfather. Benoît is a coward and a voyeur who gets his kicks from watching other couples make out. He cajoles his two new companions to attempt what he has never dared do: rob the safe in his father’s factory, seduce his stepmother to blackmail her for money and finally go so far as committing murder. Thus begins a wild ride that takes them to the very edge of madness. Director Claude Mulot made this film under the pseudonym of Frédéric Lansac - the name of a character from his previous horror hit The Blood Rose. Sins of the Flesh marks the start of his transition from softcore films to full on hard core which was confirmed by his next release, Pussy Talk - one of the most controversial French films of all time. But Sins of the Flesh also shows Mulot’s background in horror cinema. He presents Benoît as a cunning and complex psychopath, a man who smiles and wears expensive clothes, while inside lurks a monster. The film stars Jess Franco favorite Anne Libert (Erotic Rites of Frankenstein) and comes in a brand new 4k restoration with a host of original extra features.

Plot Summary:

Cult Epics is proud to present DEATH LAID AN EGG (1968), directed by auteur filmmaker Giulio Questi (DJANGO KILL!, ARCANA) and starring legendary leading man Jean-Louis Trintignant (THE CONFORMIST) as a married man and suspected serial killer, Gina Lollobrigida (BEAT THE DEVIL) as his delectable yet overly domineering careerist wife, and Swedish blonde bombshell Ewa Aulin (CANDY) as his murderous double-crossing mistress in this mystery thriller. DEATH LAID AN EGG is an avant-garde giallo that is more pertinent today than when it was first released in terms of its quite modern depiction of the battle of the sexes and the perils of technology. This Special Edition includes the Director’s cut, alongside the alternate International giallo “Plucked” version, both in fully restored 2K HD transfers, with completely new bonus features and limited edition slipcase printed with fluorescent inks to emulate the original theatrical poster.

Plot Summary:

In this surreal and sensuous mystery/noir, Lina Romay (The Female Vampire, Lorna the Exorcist) plays Irina, a partner in a male-female mind reading act. At night she experiences vivid and sexually charged dreams which end in murder. It seems that the people whose minds she reads are being killed off one by one. In the 1980s, after the death of the Spanish dictator, Jess Franco returned to his native country and made a series of films in which he was given almost total freedom, so long as they featured a number of erotic sequences. Night Has a Thousand Desires is one of the most artistically successful of these films. It’s filled with familiar Franco touches - artful cinematography, atmospheric locations, naked women, an avant garde soundtrack - and it features one of Lina Romay’s most committed performances. This world Blu Ray premier includes a number of exclusive extra features
