1980 "Devil Hunter" and "Cannibal Terror" Blu-Ray Review (Severin)
Even by the sleaziest standards of '80s EuroTrash, it remains a film that must be seen to be believed: When a pair of criminal knuckleheads and their busty moll kidnap the young daughter of a wealthy tycoon, they foolishly choose to hide in a local jungle infested with ferocious cannibals. What follows is a mind-roasting exercise in atrocious acting, gratuitous nudity and gut-munching mayhem by a ravenous tribe of flesh eaters who inexplicably sport comb-overs and Elvis sideburns. Robert Foster (INCONFESSABLE ORGIES OF EMMANUELLE), Pamela Stanford (WHITE CANNIBAL QUEEN) and Burt Altman (THE DEVIL HUNTERS) star in this infamous Spanish/French co-production that was banned in Britain as one of the original 'Video Nasties' and is now presented uncut, uncensored and mastered in High-Def for the first time ever in America!
The Way Of All Flesh: Interview With Director Alain Deruelle (aka Allan W Steeve)
Spicy Deleted Scene
King Of EuroSleaze Jess Franco (BLOODY MOON, MACUMBA SEXUAL) takes on the `80s Cannibal genre and delivers a jungle sickie like no other! When a safari of sexy babes and violent boneheads ventures into native-crazed wilderness, Uncle Jess unleashes a deluge of relentless nudity, dubious anthropology and his own brand of cut-rate carnage. Ursula Fellner (SADOMANIA), Al Cliver (ZOMBIE), Robert Foster (CANNIBAL TERROR) and Gisela Hahn (CONTAMINATION) co-star in this original Video Nasty, also tastefully known as SEXO CANNIBAL and MANDINGO MANHUNTER, with something to offend everyone, now fully restored from the original Spanish negative and presented uncut and uncensored in HD!

1980 "Mother's Day" Blu-Ray Review (Anchor Bay)
Lovin sons always do what their mothers tell them to…even if it's to KILL!!! The Troma Team is proud to bring you Charles Kaufman's Mother's Day, the independent horror classic which redefines the term ''family values.''

1980 "Schizoid" 4K Review (Vinegar Syndrome)
Vinegar Syndrome specializes in the masterful restoration and distribution of cult, horror, and erotic films from the 1960s-90s.
Before becoming known for their over-the-top action spectacles, Cannon Films dabbled in the early 80s slasher craze, producing a handful of original slice n' dice classics, two of which are presented here on 4K UHD for the first time, from Vinegar Syndrome!
Pieter Fales is a renowned psychiatrist who is unable to reconcile his relationship with his teenage daughter, Alison. Julie, one of Pieter's patients, is a successful advice columnist in the midst of a messy divorce, who has also started receiving threatening letters. When a black clad, scissors wielding killer begins murdering people in Julie's life, she begins to suspect that her unknown writer and this mystery assailant might be one and the same...
Taking strong stylistic cues from the giallo genre, director David Paulsen's (Savage Weekend) SCHIZOID, is a delirious whodunit headlined by cult film superstar, Klaus Kinski (Nosferatu the Vampyre), alongside Donna Wilkes (Angel), Marianna Hill (Messiah of Evil), and an early appearance from Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future), all amplified with a throbbing electronic score by Craig Huxley and presented here from a stunning new 4K restoration!
When Susan was a little girl, she rejected the Valentine of a lovestruck classmate. Decades later, she's come to the hospital for a routine medical examination. But when her x-rays seem to show something unusual, Susan finds herself trapped in a bizarre medical nightmare, made all the worse as her vengeful childhood valentine, disguised among the hospital staff, begins murdering everyone in his path as a means of proving his undying 'romantic' obsession...
With its exceptionally colorful cinematography by Nicholas Josef von Sternberg (Slaughterhouse Rock) and otherworldly sense of surrealism, trailblazing Israeli filmmaker Boaz Davidson's (The Last American Virgin) sole foray into horror cinema, X-RAY (aka Hospital Massacre) is a slasher like no other and has been freshly restored in 4K from its 35mm original camera negative, allowing its one-of-a-kind weirdness to be experienced as never before.
Newly scanned & restored in 4K from their 35mm original camera negatives

1980 "Demented" Blu-Ray Review (Scream Factory)
She has lost everything.
Hope…control…and her mind.
After surviving a brutal and devastating assault, Linda Rodgers is institutionalized in order to deal with her intense trauma. By the time she is finally released, her attackers have been brought to justice and imprisoned…but the psychological scars remain.
Tormented by visions of her attackers, and mistreated by her philandering husband, Linda is pushed over the edge when she encounters four young men whom she confuses with the men who assaulted her. Consumed with madness, Linda attempts to enact a bloody retribution for the disgusting crimes committed upon her… and no one is safe in this shocking 1980 exploitation film in the tradition of I Spit On Your Grave.
