A once-in-a-lifetime cast rocks the silver screen in director Gil Bettman’s masterpiece of cult cinema, Never Too Young To Die.

When a top secret agent (George Lazenby, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service) is murdered, his estranged gymnast son Lance Stargrove (John Stamos, Full House) teams up with his dad’s seductive and deadly associate, Danja Deering (Vanity, The Last Dragon) to face his father’s killer… the fiendish mastermind Velvet Von Ragner (Gene Simmons, the fiendish mastermind behind Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee KISS.) The hermaphroditic heel is hell-bent on a scheme to poison the city’s water supply: and it’s up to Stargrove to crush Velvet once and for all!

Never Too Young To Die also features Peter Kwong (Big Trouble In Little China), Robert Englund (A Nightmare On Elm Street, duh), and enough leather-clad, mohawked henchmen to fill a dozen Road Warrior knock-offs. You think you’ve seen it all? It’s never too late to see Never Too Young To Die!”

The Violent Shit Collection [Synapse Films DVD]

“In 1980s Germany, horror film censorship was a huge problem. The government rarely let classic horror films pass without severe cuts when they were released on home video. To combat this unfortunate situation many German horror fans scraped together a few bucks, rented video cameras & created their own ultra-violent, gory, splatter films. Arguably the most famous of these micro-budget German gorefests are the VIOLENT SHIT films from director Andreas Schnaas. Shot on standard definition video cameras, these films are a sight to behold. Although they are amateurishly made, choppily edited & loaded with ridiculous low-budget gore, these films have an undeniably offensive charm that has kept horror fans entertained for over 25 years!

Synapse is proud to present the original VIOLENT SHIT trilogy, along with 2010’s VIOLENT SHIT 4.0: KARL THE BUTCHER VS. AXE on DVD for the first time in North America, now completely remastered by the original owners. Includes the crazy English language dub version of ZOMBIE ’90: EXTREME PESTILENCE on a Bonus DVD with liner notes & additional VIOLENT SHIT 4.0 Bonus Features.

SPECIAL FEATURES:

  • The first three VIOLENT SHIT films, remastered by the original owners, plus VIOLENT SHIT 4.0: KARL THE BUTCHER VS. AXE
  • Liner notes from Ted Geoghegan (Screenwriter of NIKOS THE IMPALER, & Writer/Director of WE ARE STILL HERE)
  • Special BONUS DVD, including the English dub version of ZOMBIE ’90: EXTREME PESTILENCE & VIOLENT SHIT 4.0: KARL THE BUTCHER VS. AXE

Cathy’s Curse [Severin Films Blu-Ray]

“Forget what you’ve seen in blurry bootlegs and cruddy budget packs.
This first-ever restoration of the depraved Canadian shocker is being hailed as the genre re-discovery of the year: In 1947, a young girl is roasted alive in a car accident. Thirty years later, her grown brother returns to their childhood home with his mentally unstable wife and sweet daughter Cathy.

Dead or Alive Trilogy [Arrow Video Blu-Ray]

“Beginning with an explosive, six-minute montage of sex, drugs and violence, and ending with a phallus-headed battle robot taking flight, Takashi Miike’s unforgettable Dead or Alive Trilogy features many of the director’s most outrageous moments set alongside some of his most dramatically moving scenes. Made between 1999 and 2002, the Dead or Alive films cemented Miike’s reputation overseas as one of the most provocative enfants terrible of Japanese cinema, yet also one of its most talented and innovative filmmakers.

In Dead or Alive, tough gangster Ryuichi (Riki Takeuchi) and his ethnically Chinese gang make a play to take over the drug trade in Tokyo’s Shinjuku district by massacring the competition. But he meets his match in detective Jojima (Show Aikawa), who will do everything to stop them. Dead or Alive 2: Birds casts Aikawa and Takeuchi together again, but as new characters, a pair of rival yakuza assassins who turn out to be childhood friends; after a botched hit, they flee together to the island where they grew up, and decide to devote their deadly skills to a more humanitarian cause. And in Dead or Alive: Final, Takeuchi and Aikawa are catapulted into a future Yokohama ruled by multilingual gangs and cyborg soldiers, where they once again butt heads in the action-packed and cyberpunk-tinged finale to the trilogy.

Each of them unique in theme and tone, the Dead or Alive films showcase Miike at the peak of his strengths, creating three very distinct movies connected only by their two popular main actors, each film a separate yet superb example of crime drama, character study, and action filmmaking.

SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS:

 

  • High Definition digital transfers of all three films
  • Original uncompressed stereo audio
  • Optional English subtitles for all three films
  • New interview with actor Riki Takeuchi
  • New interview with actor Sho Aikawa
  • New interview with producer and screenwriter Toshiki Kimura
  • New audio commentary for Dead or Alive by Miike biographer Tom Mes
  • Archive interviews with cast and crew
  • Archive making-of featurettes for DOA2: Birds and DOA: Final
  • Original theatrical trailers for all three films
  • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Orlando Arocena

Legend has it, on what would have been their 21st day of living in the house, a preacher had gone to check in on the Samuels only to discover all their belongings left behind, as if the family had stepped out for just a moment, ready to return at any time – but they never did. Over the next 124 years, only two other families attempted to live in the house. Both left less than 21 days after moving in, leaving behind everything, never to speak of it again. Ever since, the house has lay vacant, until three filmmakers attempt to film the supernatural phenomena, but nothing prepared them for what they would find.

The lake house has not been lived in for over 40 years and it is exactly how it was left it in 1969. From the moment Kate moves into the house, she is soon haunted by a dark presence.

The Ungovernable Force brings you to a world of sex, violence, punk, and schlock and doesn’t let you leave! A bunch of punks team up with the local community of bums to defeat a fascist sheriff and his two deputies, all while the resistance’s de facto leader Sal Purgatory deals with the trials and tribulations of being a twenty-something year old punk: heartbreak, chronic nightmares, carnivorous bums, rapist cops, unpredictable reactions to drug cocktails, mutants, and working at a sex shop. Sex, violence, and taboo are pitted up against political correctness in this exploitation film that criticizes fascism, police brutality, sexism, classism, racism, homophobia, and, of course, political correctness itself. The Ungovernable Force flips the bird to the status quo and lets the blood-soaked chips fall where they may! Soundtrack features Flux of Pink Indians, Paranoid Visions, The Kids, Raxola, Who Killed Spikey Jacket, Eskorbuto, and more”

Both films are presented in beautiful 1.66 widescreen and color from 35mm film elements.”

Seizure

“A young gangster forced into trafficking girls goes into hiding when a deal goes wrong but when the girl unleashes her supernatural curse he must decide between his love for her or running for his life.”

The Devil in White [Wild Eye Releasing]

“A cult of revolutionaries plot to murder the president of an pharmaceutical corporation, who are on the verge of releasing a controversial new super street drug to the public, one that alters all five human senses and turns its users inside out. Meanwhile, a mother hunts through the drug’s underworld searching for her addicted daughter, and comes face to face with the group’s murderous plans.”

The Blackout Experiments

“The most extreme immersive horror experience in America is called Blackout. Not for the faint of heart, it is a terrifying, psycho-sexual thrill-ride designed to play on our deepest psychological fears. Rich Fox’s innovative horror documentary follows a group of friends whose experience with Blackout becomes deeply personal, developing into an obsession that hijacks their lives and blurs the line between reality and paranoid fantasy. Revealing an underbelly of private rituals and personal nightmares with footage that is 100% real, “The Blackout Experiments” is the story of our obsession with the darkness inside us. “The Blackout Experiments” premiered at Sundance 2016.”
