Chosen Survivors [Kino Lorber Blu-Ray]

chosen-survivors

“They are mankind’s last hope… and the terror has only just begun! After a devastating global nuclear holocaust, a carefully selected group of 11 citizens are sent deep into the bowels of Planet Earth, where they will remain until it is safe to return to the surface and start re-populating the world! But something else is lurking in this subterranean refuge…a deadly, rampaging of inhuman terror that won’t stop until it has exterminated them all, one by one! TV veteran Sutton Roley (Combat, Mannix) directed classic Sci-Fi thriller starring Jackie Cooper (Superman II), Alex Cord (The Brotherhood), Richard Jaeckel (The Dirty Dozen), Bradford Dillman (The Enforcer), Pedro Armendariz Jr. (Chisum), Diana Muldaur (McQ), Lincoln Kilpatrick (The Omega Man) and Barbara Babcock (Back Roads).”

Daughter of Dracula [Redemption Films Blu-Ray]

daughter of dracula

“In the early 1970s, cult filmmaker Jess Franco inspired by the Hammer horror films being made in the UK revisited the iconic monsters of yesteryear, placing them in the castles and crypts of the Spanish countryside, and bracketing the thrills with scenes of frank eroticism. Daughter of Dracula was inspired by Sheridan LeFanu s Carmilla (which was also the source of Hammer s lesbian vampire trilogy), but as one might expect, Franco s version was unlike any treatment the story had yet received. When the nude body of a murdered woman washes onto the beach, a police inspector (Alberto Dalbés) and a reporter (Fernando Bilbao) focus their attention on the castle of Count Max Karlstein (composer Daniel White) and his niece (Britt Nichols, The Demons), a beautiful woman who appears to be wrestling with an ancestral curse.”

The Mind’s Eye [Blu-Ray]

the-minds-eye

“Zack Connors and Rachel Meadows were born with incredible psychokinetic capabilities. When word of their supernatural talents gets out, they find themselves the prisoners of Michael Slovak, a deranged doctor intent on harvesting their powers. After a daring escape, they are free from his sinister institution, but the corrupt doctor will stop at nothing to track them down so that he may continue to siphon their gifts for his own use. The Mind’s Eye is “a mind-bogglingly gory film that has heart, soul, and suspense, but is above all, unbelievably fun to watch.” (Modern Horrors)”

Body Double [Blu-Ray]

body-double

“Brian De Palma invites you to witness a seduction…a mystery… a murder. It’s BODY DOUBLE a spine-tingling look at voyeurism and sexuality from the modern master of suspense. Jake Scully (Craig Wasson), an unemployed actor, is asked to house-sit at a luxurious hillside apartment. As a bonus, the home offers Jake a telescopic peek into the bedroom of Gloria Revelle (Deborah Shelton), who performs an arousing striptease. When Jake discovers another man is also spying on Gloria, he begins an obsessive surveillance of her. Soon a grisly murder leads him into the world of X-rated films where he meets sexy adult film queen Holly Body (Melanie Griffith), who is a key to the crime. De Palma has created a gripping adult thriller of eroticism and horror!”

From writer/director Mark Pavia (Stephen King’s The Night Flier), Fender Bender is an intense crash-and-slash thriller that brings you back to a time when the boxes on the shelf at your local video store beckoned you with masked, knife-wielding maniacs and a twisted sense of morals.

theyre-waiting

“From writer/directors Jay Lender & Micah Wright (CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS II and SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS) comes the batsh#t insane (Bloody Disgusting) shocker of the year: when the popular TV reality show Home Hunters Global shoots an episode in a remote Eastern European town, the crew discovers that a house with old world charm means a total wreck… that superstitious villagers can make for a very uncomfortable production… and that the local legend about a monstrous witch may hit closer to home than they realize. Brigid Brannagh (Army Wives), Kris Lemche (Ginger Snaps), David Alpay (The Vampire Diaries), and Dimitri Diatchenko (Chernobyl Diaries) star in this cracked-out, trippy horror tale (Chicago Daily Herald) that Cinema Slasher calls Incredibly fun…delivering one of the most chaotic and unpredictable finales in recent memory! ”

Full of age-appropriate scares and humor, SPOOKY STAKEOUT is a family adventure in the vein of GOOSEBUMPS and THE HAUNTING HOUR.”

The Demolisher [Blu-Ray]

the-demolisher

“Tormented by a crippling sense of responsibility for his disabled wife Samantha, an ex-policewoman, seemingly ordinary cable repairman Bruce channels his sense of injustice into a dark path of vigilantism. Donning riot gear and taking to the streets to right the seemingly infinite number of wrongs committed every day, Bruce becomes The Demolisher, a one-man wrecking ball tearing through a neon-lit city blighted by crime and hatred. As his tenuous grasp on reality weakens with each foray into the urban decay that surrounds him, Bruce s rage eventually reaches a boiling point that may cost him his own life as well as the lives of the innocent he thought he was protecting. Like the stylistically brutal films of Nicolas Winding Refn, THE DEMOLISHER is an unapologetic portrayal of what can happen when a fragile mind is pushed too far.”

Prey

prey

“John Simm stars as a man Strap in for seasons one and two of the fast-paced thriller Prey. Follow Detective Constable Marcus Farrow (John Simm, Doctor Who) as he races against time to clear his name of a brutal crime in the first electrifying season.

To this very day, Manson remains a fascinating figure to today’s youth.”
