Meanwhile, embittered one-eyed manservant Rénover (Antonio Iranzo) presents Bernard with his first group of torture victims when he accuses several sexy young things who spurned his advances of being witches responsible for the plague.
One by one beautiful women are tortured on the rack then burned at the stake. No-one seems able to halt the Inquisition’s reign of terror or the baseless accusations that cause so many innocent deaths. When Jean dies in mysterious circumstances, Catherine allies herself with Satan to get revenge on her enemies – foremost among them, De Fossey himself.
This was horror star Paul Naschy’s directorial debut and one of his very best films. He plays three roles – Inquisitor De Fossey, the Devil, and the Grim Reaper. The film is a brutal and unrelenting portrait of a past when superstition and terror ruled the minds of men.

An Italian production shot entirely in Savannah, Georgia, Madhouse (aka And When She Was Bad and There Was a Little Girl) fuses slasher elements with the over-the-top excess of 80s Italian terror resulting in a cinematic bloodbath so gut-wrenching that the British authorities saw fit to outlaw it as a video nasty .

“The terrifying story of a family that experienced the biggest demonic possession after moving into a house plagued by malicious spirits.”
Death Cam Vol. 1
“The very mention of a “Snuff Film” sends shivers of horror down the spine of most normal, law abiding citizens. But not all of us are “normal” – some crave a more primordial and warped form of entertainment for reasons beyond them, and for that reason progressive countries allow artistic expression and deem it an aspect of social service, in an effort to quell those dark and unfathomable desires that may rage within. And so for those with that penchant for that darkness within, there is DEATH CAM Vol. 1.Psycho with a Camera: Enter a world of grime and sleaze and be ready to squirm at every action of The Photographer, a sick adventure into the very real world of porn, perversion and depravity. One close-up and you’re DEAD. Video Girl: Julie dreamt of being an actress, and when an audition comes around for a new horror feature film, she can’t believe her luck, but ends up becoming prey to a twisted psychopathic director.

Be prepared to be shocked and disgusted.”

“As a boy, Drew was terrorized by a monster under his bed. Decades later, psychiatrists have convinced Drew that his childhood trauma was a figment of his imagination until he returns home to confront his darkest fears. As the people in his life begin to disappear, Drew suspects the creature is hell-bent on his destruction. Debbie Rochon (The Theatre Bizarre) and Michael O’Hear (Snow Shark) star in this gruesome, goofy, and highly entertaining nod to classic ’80s horror.”

“A matter of belief becomes a question of survival as a TV documentary film crew follows old-school paranormal investigator Eddie Brewer (Ian Brooker) as he researches two disturbing and baffling cases: a suburban home where a neurotic mother is convinced something malevolent has attached itself to her ten year old daughter; and The Rookery House, a dilapidated Eighteenth Century building with strange noises and unexplained phenomenon coming from the cellar. Facing the greatest challenges of his life, Eddie confronts the source of these paranormal manifestations during an all-night vigil at the old house. What began as a mocking expose of his work becomes a terrifying battle between reason and the paranormal.”
Angels and Demons are Real
“It seems that in recent years Angel sightings and experiences are everywhere. Perhaps this is because the world is more and more complicated and people are feeling exhausted from keeping up when time is moving too fast and they are endlessly distracted by technology which leaves them spiritually empty. Many people believe that Angels and Demons exist and are active in our world today. With demonic possessions on the rise and a world in chaos, it makes sense to those who have experienced and witnessed encounters with the divine that Angels exist and can help us cope with our everyday lives.”
“A throwback to the campy exploitation horror films of the 1970’s. This tale of terror by renegade filmmaker Jorge Ameer (Sabor Tropical, D’Agostino) takes mythology professor Dr. Jack Peruci (Jeff Allen) on a journey into the woods to find an antique artifact called “the mirror”. This relic is said to possess the spirit of the gorgon Medusa. Upon his return with his latest finding, he must convince a group of skeptical board members spearheaded by Dr. Gleason (William McNamara) as to the validity of his research while fighting supernatural forces surrounding him in an effort to prevent his soul to be used as a vessel of resurrection for the temptress Medusa.”
Documenting the Grey Man
“”Extremely effective” with moments of ”sheer horror” (AintItCool.com), Documenting the Grey Man is a hair-raising paranormal found-footage investigation by a group of avaricious actors determined to exploit a family claiming to be haunted by a ghost. What they encounter will terrify you.”

“A worldwide Clown Panic occurred in 2016 with Killer Clowns terrorizing innocent members of the public. Clown costumes were soon banned leaving many individuals who live their lives 24/7 as Clowns known as Clownarchists depressed and distraught. This shocking documentary forces us to look at the psyche of the human race grappling with a world on the brink. Coulrophobia aka The Fear of Clowns is a very real disease but what compels a person to be addicted to clown attire, some causing grief or harm to others, some wanting nothing more than to share their interests and be accepted? The Clown Panic phenomenon reveals a chink in the armor of the highly advanced and civilized ideal that sometimes fails to accept certain realities that occur in our everyday lives.”
