L’Immortelle [Blu-Ray]

l'immortelle

“In the wake of the success (and massive controversy) surrounding

Ken Russell s The Devils, numerous filmmakers rushed to create their
own Inquisition horror films, most of them inspired by the true story
of satanic possession and torture at the convent of Loudun. THE
DEMONS (Les démons) is Jess Franco s stellar entry in the
nunsploitation canon, with a degree of sadism and sexual explicitness
that overshadows its competitors.

The film begins with the torture and burning of an accused witch
who, before the flames consume her, manages to curse the principal
witchfinder and his minions. As a result, members of royalty and the
religious establishment are caused to suffer (or, some might say,
enjoy) a series of human depravities. Franco s camera lingers over
these episodes of torture, sex, and demon possession, and captures
them with a sense of tenderness that is both aesthetically pleasing
and deeply unsettling.

Previously unreleased on video in the U.S., this Redemption
edition has been mastered in HD from the original 35mm negative, and
represents the complete, uncensored version of the film.”

Paradox Alice

paradox alive

“It is 2040, and a group of astronauts have been sent on a dangerous mission to retrieve water from Europa, one of the several moons orbiting Jupiter. After narrowly escaping the moon to head back home, the team discovers that a nuclear war has left earth uninhabitable. While the remaining male astronauts come to grips over their losses, one of the crew members spontaneously transforms into a woman (in a scene that is as shocking as Alien). Each character tries to uncover the mystery of this horrific event. Was it an act of God, or a biological reaction for keeping the human race alive? As the men vie for the last female in existence, they begin to turn on one another. All of the questions come to a head in a shocking finale.”

Meet Him and Die [Blu-Ray]

meet him and die

But do we really know the background of these criminals, and what is motivating them? Starring Ray Lovelock and Elke Sommer, MEET HIM AND DIE has clever plot twists, fistfights, and motorcycle chases, making it an entertaining entry in the poliziotteschi genre.”

The Depraved

Smuggler

But death is nasty business, and Kinuta soon crosses paths with Vertebrae and Viscera, an insanely deadly duo of ninja assassins. These lethal psychopaths kill everyone in sight, drawing the vengeful wrath of a demented Mafioso. What ensues is cinematic sequence almost too extreme for American audiences. Kinuta accidentally springs Vertebrae from a harrowing death march, landing himself in the unenviable position of having to impersonate a psycho killer – or end up dead. This heinous game of cat and mouse becomes a splatterfest of guts and gore as a diaper-clad madman puts Kinuta’s will to live to the ultimate test!”
