Amsterdamned Blu-Ray/DVD Review (Blue Underground)
Written Review by MrParka
A series of gruesome murders set the town of Amsterdam in a panic. The killer is using the murky depths of the canals and his diving experience to his advantage. It's up to an unorthodox police officer to end the madness. “Amsterdamned” is a mishmash of action, horror, and comedy; cramming as many stunts, chase scenes, and morbid humor into it as it can, making for a weird experience.
“Amsterdamned” recalls American films from the 70’s due to its high paced action stunts and chase scenes. The film’s ultimate stunt is an 8 minute chase scene via speed boats. This miraculous moment is done through the tight canals while dodging obstacles and people the entire time. The film’s camera work, along with the basic set up, is heavily inspired by the classic 70’s film “Jaws,”; in particular the POV shots from the killer as he stalks his prey above the scummy surface of the canals. Also prevalent are American 80s slasher and serial killer films. The ways the murder scenes are orchestrated feel similar to as if they were being carried by Jason Voorhees or Frank Zito from “Maniac.” The film seems to try and paint Amsterdam in a sleazy light, recalling the New York of the 70s and 80s film world. Incorporated into the film are the apparent pollution problems and the Red Light District making everything seem dirty. If there isn’t murder or action to be seen, it’s police procedural with a lot of clue checking and bureaucratic politics. This stuff is all fairly typical with pressure from the Mayor and the Chief to the lead the detective to catch the killer and save tourism; “Jaws” again. Besides the insane plot and high paced action, a stand out element is the dark humor of the film. The director Dick Maas never passes up a chance to poke fun at the residents of Amsterdam. This is best done in a scene where a group of children and nuns on a guided boat tour encounter a body of a prostitute. The body of the sex worker is hanging off a bridge and drags across the top of the glass ceiling of the tour boat to the passenger’s horror and the audience’s chuckles. “Amsterdamned” does suffer a bit in the mystery department; by the end of the film, the killer's identity seems to be obvious, but the film neglects the previous red herrings and who the killer is seems to come out of left field. Although maybe a nice twist for some, it seems rather strange.
Blue Underground has included a commentary with Dick Maas and stuntman Dickey Beer moderated by David Gregory, a vintage making of, and some new interviews. If you watch only one feature, make sure it’s the amazing music video which features the theme song by Loïs Lane. Blue Underground has done a decent job with video and a great job with the sound, English, French, and Dutch language is included. At the end of the day, “Amsterdamned” is an entertaining stunt filled action horror outing that has enough guts and strangeness to keep people entertained.
The Danger Lies Just Below the Surface
Down in the murky depths of Amsterdam’s famous canals lurks a murderous predator. Surfacing at night, he kills at random and disappears without a trace. As the bodies begin to pile up and mass hysteria envelopes the city, Detective Eric Visser is assigned to head the investigation. With only the escalating number of victims to go on, Visser pursues his quarry with a vengeance, unaware that his beautiful new girlfriend may be the mysterious killer’s next victim.
Huub Stapel (THE LIFT) and Monique van de Ven (TURKISH DELIGHT) star in this pulse-pounding thriller written and directed by Dick Maas (SILENT WITNESS), highlighted by an explosive speedboat chase through the city’s narrow canals. Long unavailable on U.S. home video, Blue Underground proudly presents AMSTERDAMNED in a brand-new 2K restoration from the original Dutch negative, approved by Dick Maas!

The Slayer Blu-Ray/DVD Review (Arrow Video)
Written Review by MrParka
The neglected supernatural slasher Video Nasty, “The Slayer” hits bluray from Arrow Films. Two couples go on a vacation on a secluded island. Our protagonist, Kay, feels uneasy about the Island and soon her uneasiness becomes much more than a bad feeling; it becomes a place for the Slayer to strike.
“The Slayer” is unlike any other slasher villain, a physical manifestation of someone’s nightmares that may or may not even be real. “The Slayer” surprisingly predates “A Nightmare on Elm Street” by a couple years, which makes its original lack luster release an even bigger shame. Not only does “The Slayer” have a great concept behind its villain, it manages to bring a few more refreshing elements. Our characters are adults and successful, it's nice to see a group of people treating each other with a decent amount of respect and a will to do more than just party. The group has a nice relationship and history without over explaining it or stopping the movie to let us know what is important. The pacing, although slow, sets the mood correctly. At times “The Slayer” is a bit melodramatic but somehow fits with the psyche of the lead, giving the proper attention and interactions between the characters. Later in the film, we understand Kay’s fragile mental state isn’t something new and these facts let the audience know she may be dangerous. The ominous presence of dread in the film is told through the setting and music. When an abandoned theater, previously in our lead's painting, is first shown, we know something awful is going to happen in that building. The few special effects that are on display are top notch, including one of the most amazing pitchfork death scenes around. Not to mention the big reveal at the end when Kay finally comes face to face with the titular character. “The Slayer” has some unanswered questions. As the films moves along and the bodies begin to pile up we aren’t necessarily sure if we can completely trust our lead heroine. Is the killer a manifestation of nightmares, an intruder on the island, or, the unthinkable, our lead?
For the first time ever, “The Slayer” looks and sounds amazing. The eerie score and haunting location finally are presented correctly. Included on the disc are two commentaries, one with director J.S. Cardone and one with the fellas from The Hysteria Continues website. Also included are brand new interviews with cast and crew, and the Arrow Blu-Ray premiere. All and all, a great release for an underseen film.
IS IT A NIGHTMARE? OR IS IT... THE SLAYER?
One of the most sought-after titles for slasher fans everywhere, The Slayer finally rises from the ashes of obscurity in a brand new 4K transfer courtesy of Arrow Video. Two young couples set off to a secluded island for what promises to be a restful retreat. But the peace is short-lived: as a storm batters the island, troubled artist Kay begins to sense that a malevolent presence is here with them, stalking them at every turn. Is she losing her mind, or are her childhood nightmares of a demonic assailant coming to terrifying life? Previously only available on home video in truncated or full screen versions, The Slayer - whose nightmares-seeping-into-reality theme predates a certain Wes Craven classic by several years - comes lovingly restored from the original negative in a stunning transfer that will be a revelation to fans both old and new.

The Love of a Woman Blu-Ray/DVD Review (Arrow Academy)
The Love of a Woman (L'amour d'une femme) was the final feature of the great French filmmaker Jean Grémillon, concluding a string of classics that included such greats as Remorques, Lumière d'été and Pattes blanches. Marie, a young doctor, arrives on the island of Ushant to replace its retiring physician. She experiences prejudice from the mostly male population, but also love in the form of engineer André. Starring Micheline Presle, whose impressive career has encompassed French, Italian and Hollywood cinema, and Massimo Girotti, best-known for his performance in Luchino Visconti's Ossessione, The Love of a Woman is a sad, beautiful, romantic masterpiece.

Jackie Brown Blu-Ray Review
Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction) scores with an explosive mix of intense action and edgy humor in his "twisty crime yarn" (Entertainment Weekly). What do a sexy stewardess (Pam Grier), a street-tough gun runner (Samuel L. Jackson), a lonely bail bondsman (Robert Forster), a shifty ex-con (Robert De Niro), an earnest federal agent (Michael Keaton) and a stoned-out beach bunny (Bridget Fonda) have in common? They're six players on the trail of a half million dollars in cash! The only questions are... who's going to get played... and who's going to make the big score?

The Creep Behind the Camera (Synapse Blu-Ray) Review
Review by MrParka
Everyone has seen at least a few films that brought up questions, like who made this? Or possibly how did this get made? One of those films responsible for those inquires is the 60s no budgeter “Creeping Terror” directed by Art Nelson. The film, “The Creep Behind the Camera” coming to Bluray from Synapse films, answers those questions about this awful monster movie curiosity and, in the process, shows us that some movies have a stories behind them that are far better than any film.
“The Creep Behind the Camera” is not your typical film, its part documentary and part recreation. The documentary part of the film is made up of interviews with the key players who are still alive, film scholars, and friends of the cast and crew. The recreation part is mostly retellings of the odd lives of Art Nelson, his wife Lois, and producer William Thourlby and their interactions with other strange characters. The main focus being on the making of “The Creeping Terror” which is most certainly William Thourlby’s biggest failure and, possibly, even Art’s.
Although Nelson was a sociopathic monster, his story is shown in a darkly comedic light with moments of dark drama. It's truly a feat at how dark the film goes without losing its playful touch due to the comic timing and editing. Creep manages going as far as showing a glimpse of child pornography that seemingly was a part of Art Nelson’s shady life. The heart of the story is with Lois overcoming the abuse. Actress Jodi Lynn Thomas manages to bring an innocence about her which demands sympathy. Some of the most dramatic moments in the film are followed by interview snippets with the real life Lois. It's near unbearable when Lois struggles to speaks as she recalls her abuse from the hands of her husband. Josh Phillips plays Art Nelson dead on; he truly is a monster more so than the one in his movie. He abuses, cheats, lies, manipulates, and uses drugs. Not once does Nelson have any regret and when he is pressured he breaks into false tears. His devilish grin and sleazy demeanor work well when he is convincing people to pay for an acting role in what he tells everyone will be the best and biggest monster movie ever made! Bill LeVasseur as William Thoulby stands out as a producer whose been taken advantage of, his expression of concern is almost as dead on as his likeness to the real life Bill Tholby.
“Creep Behind the Camera” is slightly jarring from time to time due to it jumping around from year to year with interviews spliced in between. The film doesn’t go in chronological order and tends to follow the cues from the interviews. For someone who isn’t familiar with the story it can become a little uncertain when Lois eventually leaves Nelson. The recreations are done well enough to stand alone without the interviews. The recreations are shot better than most straight forward films and feature some great tracking camera work from above, especially during the final scene with Art Nelson. The music choices seem to fit the time the original “Creeping Terror” was made and plays well into the energetic and playful touches the film has. The set recreations are amazingly detailed as well as the wardrobe and the creature. One would be hard pressed to tell a major difference about the recreated monster from “Creep Behind the Camera” and the original. Besides an interesting Hollywood outskirts story, Creep comes together due to the professionalism the cast and crew seemed to have and the amazing attention to detail.
“Creep Behind the Camera” is loaded with features including “Creeping Terror” in a 2k scan, an audio commentary, creating the monster behind the scenes featurette, and a Q&A. “The Creeping Terror” is required viewing as a father piece to “Creep Behind the Camera” and is amazingly interesting to compare. The film makers and Synapse both put in the hard work to bring an interesting piece of film about an interesting piece of film.
A creature is haunting the streets of Los Angeles, waiting for the cover of night to stalk innocent young girls. Hungry for fame and fortune, it’s fueled by a demonic rage ready to devour anyone attempting to hinder its becoming the most powerful entity in Hollywood. While sometimes called A.J. Nelson, this demon is more commonly known as Vic Savage. This is his story…
In 1964, Vic Savage made THE CREEPING TERROR with a microscopic budget verging on the non-existent. Quickly earning a reputation as the worst movie ever made, it tells of the arrival of an unconvincing alien life-form (a shambling carpet creature made of plastic tubing, wire and soap) that devours its picnicking, dancing and guitar-playing victims. Much like the infamous Ed Wood, Savage managed to pull off a variety of schemes to convince an honest producer to invest in what he promised to be “the biggest monster movie ever made”.
Told through re-enactments and containing shockingly true stories of many of the actual people involved with the production, Pete Schuermann’s THE CREEP BEHIND THE CAMERA is the funny and ultimately terrifying saga of the making of THE CREEPING TERROR, and a disastrous portrait of a talentless artist who ultimately succumbs to his own self-destructive behavior. Starring Josh Phillips in the larger-than-life performance as Vic Savage, and Jodi Lynn Thomas (AMC’s PREACHER) as his unsuspecting wife Lois, THE CREEP BEHIND THE CAMERA pays vibrant tribute to an inglorious chapter in the history of genre cinema, incidentally exposing one of the most unimaginably radical antitheses of the Hollywood dream.

Death Sentence (VUDU) Review
James Wan (Saw) brings the ultra-violence to this gritty story of a suburban father (Kevin Bacon) who discovers the consequences of revenge after his son is murdered. The perpetrators of this senseless killing are a multi-ethnic (and highly visible) gang of drug dealers and cutthroats led by the psychotic Billy Darley (Garrett Hedlund); when the case is thrown out on a technicality, Bacon takes a page from Charles Bronson's book (no surprise, as this is based on author Brian Garfield's 1975 follow-up to Death Wish) and pursues a vigilante course to avenge his boy. Things do not go according to Bacon's plan, which cues a series of frantic and well-executed action set pieces, most notably a parking structure chase that unfolds in a nearly unbroken take. Death Sentence breaks no new ground in the action-thriller department, and its characters and dialogue are nearly indistinguishable from any violent crime movie of the last few decades (in its weakest moments, it resembles grindhouse fare like The Exterminator); however, Bacon is excellent (as always) as the mild-mannered architect who discovers his inner killer the hard way, and Wan's knack for screen mayhem and unsettling atmosphere are well used here. The DVD includes both the theatrical version and an unrated cut (which offers 10 additional minutes), as well as two making-of featurettes that originally aired on the Fox Movie Channel, and several webisodes that focus on director Wan, his cast, and the film's elaborate stunts and fight scenes.

"Ronin" Arrow Video Blu-Ray Review
RONIN. Noun, historical. A samurai who no longer serves a daimyo, or feudal lord.
RONIN. Noun, historical. A samurai who no longer serves a daimyo, or feudal lord. From director John Frankenheimer (Reindeer Games, The Manchurian Candidate) comes Ronin, a pulse-pounding, action-packed crime thriller featuring an all-star cast headlined by Robert De Niro (Taxi Driver, Heat) and Jean Reno (Leon: The Professional). On a rain-swept night in Paris, an international crack team of professional thieves assembles, summoned by a shady crime syndicate fronted by the enigmatic Deirdre (Natascha McElhone, The Devil's Own). Their mission: to steal a heavily guarded briefcase from armed mobsters, its contents undisclosed. But what begins as a routine heist soon spirals into chaos, with the group beset by a series of double-crosses and constantly shifting allegiances, and it falls to world-weary former CIA strategist Sam (De Niro) and laconic Frenchman Vincent (Reno) to hold the mission together. A latter-day return to form for Frankenheimer, the film evokes the same gritty milieu as classic 70s crime fare like The French Connection, in addition to anticipating the early 21st century trend towards more grounded, realistic action movies, exemplified by the likes of the Bourne franchise. Arrow Video is proud to present Ronin in a brand new, cinematographer-approved 4K restoration, allowing this jewel in the crown of 90s thriller cinema to shine like never before.

"New Battles Without Honor and Humanity" The Complete Trilogy Arrow Video Blu-Ray Review
In the early 1970s, Kinji Fukasaku's five-film Battles Without Honor and Humanity series was a massive hit in Japan, and kicked off a boom in realistic, modern yakuza films based on true stories. Although Fukasaku had intended to end the series, Toei Studio convinced him to return to the director's chair for this unconnected, follow-up trilogy of films, each starring Battles leading man Bunta Sugawara and telling separate, but fictional stories about the yakuza in different locations in Japan. In the first film, Bunta Sugawara is Miyoshi, a low-level assassin of the Yamamori gang who is sent to jail after a bungled hit. While in stir, family member Aoki (Lone Wolf and Cub's Tomisaburo Wakayama) attempts to seize power from the boss, and Miyoshi finds himself stuck between the two factions with no honorable way out. In the second entry, The Boss's Head, Sugawara is Kuroda, an itinerant gambler who steps in when a hit by drug-addicted assassin Kusunoki (Tampopo's Tsutomu Yamazaki) goes wrong, and takes the fall on behalf of the Owada family, but when the gang fails to make good on financial promises to him, Kuroda targets the family bosses with a ruthless vengeance. And in Last Days of the Boss, Sugawara plays Nozaki, a laborer who swears allegiance to a sympathetic crime boss, only to find himself elected his successor after the boss is murdered. Restrained by a gang alliance that forbids retributions against high-level members, Nozaki forms a plot to exact revenge on his rivals, but a suspicious relationship with his own sister (Chieko Matsubara from Outlaw: Gangster VIP) taints his relationship with his fellow gang members.

Re-Animator Arrow Limited Edition Blu-Ray Review
Review by MrParka
Stuart Gordon's directorial debut “Re-Animator” gets the deluxe treatment in a big way from Arrow films. The limited edition is loaded to the brim with extras. Also included is a bonus disc which features the integral cut and a featurette about the film adaptations of Lovecraft.
Herbert West, a brilliant medical student, transfers to the Miskatonic University and quickly invades the life of Dan Cain, an ambitious promising student. It doesn't take long for West to get Cain involved with his insane theories and experiments of bringing the dead back to life and continuing brain function after it has stopped. These experiments soon catch the attention of the school’s Dean, Alan Halsy; his daughter and girlfriend to Dan, Megan; and the menacing Dr. Hill. After a series of misfortunes and gruesome events, everyone involved finds themselves trapped in a cycle of death and frenzy all at the mercy of the re-animated and decapitated Dr. Hill.
“Re-Animator” has a huge cult following and for good reason. It launched the film careers of many beloved voices and faces in the horror genre, including Stuart Gordon and Jeffrey Combs to name two. It tackled Lovecraft like no one ever dared, a highly sexualized, perverse manner with abundant amounts of splatter. A huge part of its success is due to the wonderful effects, a great story, an amazing cast, offbeat tone, and a familiar but different score. The only real possible negative “Re-animator” could ever be accused of is that, in tone and style due to a graphic sexual nature, it doesn't really capture a Lovecraftian feel. However it did rejuvenate or, better put, reanimate the Lovecraft genre and molded it to what it is today. It also helped shine some praise on a master of horror, H.P. Lovecraft.
Being Stuart Gordon's first film, it's astounding to think that he managed to create such a creative and competent film. No doubt his talents as a stage director gave him the intelligence to pick his cast wisely. No one can even briefly mention “Re-animator” without bringing up the iconic character of Herbert West played by Jeffrey combs. His performance is an unforgettable one, his demeanor shifts from comedic to villainous in seconds and his sarcastic, dead pan delivery is agitating and hilarious. Combs manages to bring a high pace, manic energy into the character while creating the morbid genius. The other cast is equally as brilliant. Barbara Crampton as Megan conveys a huge gamut of emotions in a convincing manner. At times Megan is in utter horror or grief-stricken hysterics. When she interacts with her father after he has had the misfortunate of being one of West’s test subjects, she blends the two perfectly. David Gale is amazing as the manipulative Dr. Carl Hill. He brings the perfect level of intensity and creepiness. It's not often someone gets to play a talking head and steal the show, but David Gale does it with a classic-yet-sleazy style, recalling some previous horror icons from yesteryear. Dean Halsy, played by Robert Sampson, is probably the most underrated cast member in the film. He brings a great human touch that is greatly appreciated; Sampson’s performance shows his character arc wonderfully. The character of Dean Halsy starts the film as a likable gentleman and turns into a sympathetic monster, the way Robert Sampson emotes during the climactic moment is impeccable. Finally, Bruce Abbott rounds out the leads, playing the straight man, Dan Cain, and is the connectivity to the audience. He comes across solid amongst the strong cast.
The score reflects Bernard Hermann’s score from the legendary “Psycho”. Richard Band creates the score with a playful edge, letting some of the grotesque sight humor land where it is supposed to. It takes a special track to make a stumbling, headless corpse carrying its head in a surgical dish tickle the funny bone. Even with all the praise, “Re-Animator” works in large because of how the imaginative effects are executed and edited. During the decapitation scene, it is literally put together with the right cuts and angles; making a realistic effect without much money.
The features seem endless on Arrow’s release, but the highlight would have to be the integral cut. The integral cut features roughly 23 extra minutes of footage, all remastered as well. The new scenes slow down the brisk pace of the unrated cut, but add depth to the characters, interesting subplots, and nice transitionary moments. With these new scenes, we understand Dr. Hill has a hypnotic power over the dead and sometimes the living. This longer cut helps with some character motivations as well and patches in some of Dan Cain’s reasoning for helping West. These deleted scenes are included separate, as well, on the first disc. The film adaptations of Lovecraft featurette scans the films inspired by the work of Lovecraft. The featurette is a nice reminder for even the big Lovecraft fans, starting with early works and into the modern era. Most of the titles are heavy hitters, but there are a few surprises as well. Three commentaries are also included, a feature length making of, and seemingly every special feature that was ever created for the film. The making of documentary has all the big players that are still in the world of the living. They are all candid and grateful for their experience on the film and share a slew of entertaining stories. “Re-Animator” has been remastered in 4K and looks wonderful.
Arrow has done an amazing job with this release. Finally one of the best horror comedies ever has a final edition fans can be proud of.
HERBERT WEST HAS A GOOD HEAD ON HIS SHOULDERS... AND ANOTHER ONE ON HIS DESK. One of the most wildly popular horror movies of all-time, Stuart Gordon's enduring splatter-comedy classic Re-Animator returns to Blu-ray in a stunning restoration packed with special features! When medical student Dean Cain advertises for a roommate, he soon finds one in the form of Dr. Herbert West. Initially a little eccentric, it some becomes clear that West entertains some seriously outlandish theories - specifically, the possibility of re-animating the dead. It's not long before Dean finds himself under West's influence, and embroiled in a serious of ghoulish experiments which threaten to go wildly out of control... Based on H.P. Lovecraft's classic terror tale 'Herbert West - Reanimator' and featuring a standout performance from Jeffrey Combs as the deliciously deranged West, Re-Animator remains the ground-zero of '80s splatter mayhem and one of the genre's finest hours.

The Zodiac Killer and Another Son of Sam Blu-Ray Review
A new 4K transfer of the only movie in history made explicitly to catch a serial killer.
Directed by Tom Hanson, who had previously owned a chain of Pizza Man restaurants, The Zodiac Killer was made to capture the real-life Zodiac Killer. That plan didn't work. Instead, we got the most outrageous and compelling "tabloid horror" vortex in the history of planet Earth. And beyond. During theatrical screenings, Hanson constructed in-theater "traps" to lure the killer from hiding. These included the use of an ice cream freezer filled with rent-a-cops and a raffle with a motorcycle as a prize. You won't get insight like this by watching a David Fincher movie. But you will get it while watching The Zodiac Killer.

Effects Blu-Ray Review
A new 4K transfer of this snuff-fueled frightmare starring Tom Savini and Joe Pilato!
Cobbled together with loose change by George Romero's friends, EFFECTS is a mesmerizing D.I.Y. frightmare that no one talks about, but everyone should. A group of coked-up filmmakers -- including Tom "DAWN OF THE DEAD" Savini, Joe "DAY OF THE DEAD" Pilato, and John "TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE: THE MOVIE" Harrison -- gather in Pittsburgh to make a slasher. As filming begins and "accidents" happen, it's clear that something isn't right. And no one can be trusted. Landing somewhere between SNUFF and a student film by John Carpenter, EFFECTS is a meta-enhanced takedown on the philosophy of horror that doubles as a sleazy and terrifying movie on its own.

Beyond the Darkness (Severin Films)
Written Review by MrParka
Severin films brings the grotesque Euro shocker "Beyond the Darkness" to Blu-ray. “Beyond the Darkness” is loaded with features from previous releases and presented in the best possible quality.
Young millionaire Frank's beautiful girlfriend, Anna dies of a strange illness. Unable to let go, Frank steals Anna’s body and preserves her using his taxidermy skills. Frank begins to pick up young girls to fulfill his sexual urges and attempts to incorporate the corpse of his past lover in the mix. This morbid obsession starts a chain of murders and mayhem. Franks's housekeeper (Franca Stoppi) who is part sexual partner and mother figure to Frank helps dispose of the corpses. This set up is shaky but working, until Franca demands Frank removes the corpse from the premises. Frank’s refusal of Franca’s demand and the arrival of Anna’s twin sister lead to a bloody climax between the duo.
“Beyond the Darkness” is without a doubt one of the most disgusting Italian horror films ever made. Not only is the gore repulsive but the subject matter, tone, and themes are as well. During a scene where Frank brings home an injured jogger for sex reveals this most. While the pair is beginning to start their sexual encounter Frank reaches over to unveil the corpse he has preserved lying in the nearby bed, unknowingly to the horror of his soon to be victim. The way Frank stumbles into murder, perversion, and obsessions recalls the case of Ed Gein. If you were to switch Gein’s fascination from mother to lover, in other words their inability to let go and obsession with death has pushed them to commit murder. This comparison adds a layer of realism to the usually cheesy nature of Italian horror films of this time and budget. Franca Stoppi is such a despicable character it’s hard to decide who’s the bigger monster between her and Frank. Although Frank is doing the killing, Stoppi helps him cover up his crimes and keeps him at bay with sexual motherly comfort. Her comforting is very incestuous feeling and is rather disturbing especially when she exposes her breast to him and he suckles on it like a child. In a truly gag inducing moment Franca taunts Frank by eating her dinner in such a sloppy manner moments earlier the two discarded remnants of a freshly melted victim by burying them in a pit filled with liquefied animal remains. The scene cuts back and forth between the stew and the bubbling pit of gore, gagging not only Frank but anyone brave enough to watch. Among the violence and gore a truly graphic autopsy scene is included where real guts and pig skin is used. A fair share of nudity is also sported, both full front from male and female, most of which lingers in sleazy fashion. On the more artistic side is some well-done camera work. A memorable one shot that follows the suspicious funeral director looking for the missing corpse of Anna is one of the highlights. To round out the film is a memorable score by Goblin. The main theme will surely be known to any fans of the band and enjoyed by those who aren’t familiar. The main theme is big and creepy with lively energy. On the other hand the track reserved for Frank and his lover is fairly heartfelt and touching and helps add the tiniest bit of sympathy for Frank. “Beyond the Darkness” is one of the most demented stories of lost love around. It’s filled with plenty of repellent moments of violence and gore and enough nudity to qualify as a softcore film; it may not be pretty but it’s effective.
Severin has ported over the previous features including the amazing Joe D'Amato: The Horror Experience which features a long interview with the director and his collaborators spliced with footage from his most memorable films. This featurette is wonderful and Aristide Massaccesiaka aka Joe D’mato doesn’t hold back. Also included are an interview with Franca Stoppi and two new featurettes including an interview with Cinzia Monreale and a comparison between the locations then and now. For good measure Severin has tossed in a CD of the soundtrack so you can enjoy the sounds of Goblin anywhere. Another nice release from Severin as always.
It has been denounced as "revolting" (SplatterDay.com), "stomach-churning" (Classic-Horror.com) and "shower-prompting" (Fandor), while simultaneously acclaimed as "bone-chilling" (Chas Balun), "truly classic" (The Spinning Image) and "a must-see" (Horror.com). Now experience "D'Amato's masterpiece" (BloodyDisgusting.com) like you've never seen or heard it before: CinzIa Monreale (THE BEYOND) and Franca Stoppi (THE OTHER HELL) star in this psycho sickie - set to a pounding score by Goblin.
Severin is proud to present this sleaze-fest also known as BURIED ALIVE and BUIO OMEGA from director Joe D'Amato (ANTHROPOPHAGUS), restored and packed with exclusive new Special Features.

Product Description: A young boy joins a group of renegade dwarves on an unpredictable journey through time in this humorous fantasy. Monty Python animator Terry Gilliam mostly achieves a tricky balancing act in his second feature as sole director, creating a dark, irreverent comedy disguised as a family adventure. Particularly amusing are the boy's encounters with various historical figures, including an entertainment-starved Napoleon (Ian Holm), a powerful Agamemnon (Sean Connery), and a surprisingly stuffy Robin Hood, embodied by Gilliam's Python cohort John Cleese. Episodic by nature, the film is less successful when dealing with the larger narrative, which concerns the pursuit of the dwarves and their time-traveling map by the Supreme Being. However, the combination of Gilliam's visual exuberance and the witty script (by Gilliam and Michael Palin) ensures an entertaining, if erratic, journey.

Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid
Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid may be the most beautiful and ambitious film that Sam Peckinpah ever made. The time is 1881. Powerful interests want New Mexico tamed for their brand of progress, and Sheriff Pat Garrett (James Coburn) is commissioned to rid the territory of his old gunfighting comrades. He serves fair notice to William Bonney--Billy the Kid (Kris Kristofferson)--and his Fort Sumter cronies, but it's not in their nature, or his, to go quietly. Peckinpah's theme, more than ever, is the closing of the frontier and the nature of the loss that that entails. But this time his vision takes him beyond genre convention, beyond history and legend, to the bleeding heart of myth--and surely of himself.
This is one strange and original movie. In 1973 most American reviewers responded by panning it and deriding its director, whom they saw as having betrayed the promise of Ride the High Country, been swept up in his own cult of violence, and become incoherent as a storyteller. Coherence wasn't helped by MGM's cutting at least a quarter-of-an-hour out of the finished film and removing a bitter, retrospective prelude. Subsequent releases have restored a lot of material, and now there's more widespread appreciation of the depth and power of Peckinpah's achievement.
The cast, teeming with fine character actors, is extraordinary, making the gallery of frontier denizens vivid and resonant. Coburn's Garrett, a man who comes to loathe himself for his mission yet cannot abandon it, is the high-water mark of the actor's career. L.Q. Jones, Luke Askew, Harry Dean Stanton, Jack Elam, and Richard Bright create indelible moments, and Slim Pickens becomes the center of an unforgettably moving scene. The presence of Kristofferson (just starting out as an actor) and Bob Dylan (whose enigmatic role is nearly wordless) nudges us toward recognizing Old West outlawry as an early form of rock stardom--flesh-and-blood gods for a primitive society to feed on. --Richard T.

After a cavalry group is massacred by the Cheyenne, only two survivors remain: Honus, a naive private devoted to his duty, and Cresta, a young woman who had lived with the Cheyenne two years and whose sympathies lie more with them than with the US government. Together, they must try to reach the cavalry's main base camp. As they travel onward, Honus is torn between his growing affection for Cresta, and his disgust for her anti-American beliefs. They reach the cavalry campsite on the eve of an attack on a Cheyenne village, where Honus will learn which side has really been telling him the truth.
