RAW GUTS FOR GLORY! FLESH AGAINST STEEL!

The most dangerous game ever devised, to pit man against man, flesh against steel - the figure-8 race! Jack Hill (Coffy, Foxy Brown) follows up Spider Baby, once again teaming up with Sid Haig (House of 1000 Corpses) in one of his greatest roles for this action-spectacular crash-o-rama!

Richard Davalos (East of Eden) stars as Rick Bowman, a street punk who winds up in jail after a street race goes wrong. Bailed out by race promoter Grant Willard, Davalos is put in the deadly track where he comes up against Haig's maniacal winner Hawk Sidney. Featuring an outstanding supporting cast including Brian Donlevy (The Quatermass Xperiment) in his last film appearance, Ellen Burstyn, billed as Ellen McRae (The Exorcist), and Beverly Washburn (Spider Baby), Pit Stop is one of Hill's lesser known films but arguably his greatest.

Filmed on a real figure-8 track, Hill and his crew were able to capture gripping real-life car wreck scenes lending the film a brilliant sense of realism. You've never seen a motion picture like this before - can you take it?

La Grande Bouffe - Dual Format DVD & Blu-ray - ORDER HERE

The most famous film by Italian provocateur Marco Ferreri (Dillinger is Dead), La Grande bouffe was reviled on release for its perversity, decadence and attack on the bourgeoisie yet won the prestigious FIPRESCI prize after its controversial screening at the Cannes Film Festival.

Four friends, played by international superstars Marcello Mastroianni (Fellini's 8½), Michel Piccoli (Belle de jour), Ugo Tognazzi (Barbarella) and Philippe Noiret (Zazie dans le métro) retreat to a country mansion where they determine to eat themselves to death whilst engaging in group sex with prostitutes and a local school teacher (Andréa Ferréol, The Tin Drum), who seems to be up for anything...

At once jovial and sinister, the film's jet-black humour has a further twist as the reputed actors (whose characters use their own names) buck their respectable trend for a descent into fart-filled chaos that delivers a feast for the eyes and mind.

Blood Rage - Dual Format DVD & Blu-ray  - ORDER HERE

IT'S NOT CRANBERRY SAUCE!

What do you get if you combine Thanksgiving, American TV star Louise Lasser (Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman), killer 80s synths and some of the most gruesome special effects in all of slasher history courtesy of Ed (Terminator 2) French. Why, it's Blood Rage of course!

Todd and Terry seem like sweet kids - that is, until one of them takes an axe to face of a fellow patron at the local drive-in. Todd is blamed for the bloody crime and institutionalised, whilst twin brother Terry goes free. Ten years later and, as the family gathers around the table for a Thanksgiving meal, the news comes in that Todd has escaped - and he's heading their way. But has the killer twin in fact been in their midst all along? One thing's for sure, there WILL be blood...

Filmed in 1983 at the tail-end of the slasher golden era but not released until 1987, Blood Rage (also re-cut and released to theatres as Nightmare at Shadow Woods) has been lovingly restored from the original vault materials for its first ever appearance on Blu-ray and DVD. Happy Thankskilling!

Dead Enders Set for Re-Release Directors Cut Drops New Art & DVD release!

A Paul C. Hemmes Film.

At first i thought i really wasn't going to like this movie, but it turned out to be something pretty twisted and very engaging. This is a brilliant little movie in my opinion, any time you can pretty much keep an audience stuck to the screen with one location then you got something special. This movie is basically about a very twisted woman that lives underneath an old house where she has built a tomb sorta looking dungeon space where she keeps her dead companions , one night she ventures out and winds up bringing a guy home from a bar and keeps him in a cage, what takes place after is lots of dialogue between them and some sexy hot corpse love ..Its twisted enough to definitely keep you interested another winner in my opinion I would highly recommend to any horror fan.

Friday the 13th 2016- Not a Sequel & Not a Found Footage Film Says Mears.

I Had the wonderful opportunity to meet Derek Mears (Jason Voorhees 2009) this weekend at the Mad Monster Party in Phoenix AZ, here is what he had to say about the new Friday the 13th film Slated for release in May of 2016. I asked if he would play Jason & he could only cross his fingers & say "I Hope so" I think that tells us we don't know who will play Jason yet? He also told me that there was a script for a sequel to the 2009 Film & that it was great but the powers that be decided that the new film will not be a sequel to the 2009 film. When asked if the new film was in fact going to be a found footage film he said NO it is not going to be a found footage film. All this being said I hope he is right, the fans have spoken & nobody want's to see Jason in a found footage film as far as a sequel I wouldn't mind that at all because lets face it another reboot is not what we need & a sequel would bring fourth a new story, They would not be able to remake anything in a 2009 sequel unless they brought back Jarvis which I doubt they would do so I would be all for a sequel. A new Friday film in 2016 I can't wait I just hope we get a new story so we dont have to re live any of the old films ever again, I wanna see Jason move on and keep going into new territories & new story lines that fans can enjoy for years to come, so Im all for anything they decide to do as long as we don't get another re-boot.
