The Escapees

On the run from an asylum for the insane, a feisty young girl and her forlorn female companion embark on a surreal journey with a group of traveling erotic dancers. Wandering from the fantastic to the farcical and back again, The Escapees contains all the magic and fairy-tale qualities of cult films like Fascination (1979) and Requiem for a Vampire (1971) and has everything one expects from a Rollin film, including two beautiful young women, startling scenes of death, burlesque shows in a junkyard and erotic lesbian encounters with Brigitte Lahaie! This is a rare release that marks the film's DVD debut and this version has been re-mastered from the original negative.

Mondo Topless

Completely topless! Completely uninhibited! The wayout craze that began in San Francisco is now exploding across the USA and Europe. National publications have documented the "Topless", but nowhere has it been as thoroughly covered (or uncovered) as it is in Russ Meyer's rampaging motion picture Mondo Topless. The film is believably real - but "unbelievable" just barely describes all of Meyer's discotheque discoveries! Fantastic women, fantastic dances - the "buxotics" - in an incendiary tribute to unrestrained female anatomy featuring the world's loveliest bosom brigade!

2 DVD Special - Cat Chaser and The Fun House

Cat Chaser
Superstars Kelly McGillis (Top Gun) and Peter Weller (RoboCop) ignite a smouldering passion with chilling consequences in the erotic thriller Cat Chaser, based on a novel by Elmore Leonard.
Something was calling former Lance Corporal George "Cat Chaser" Moran away from his quiet Miami retreat - the haunting memory of his violent brush with death. On a trip to Santo Domingo in search of the woman who saved his life George Moran instead reunites with the sensual Mary de Boya - a woman whose love could cost him everything. A superb thriller directed by Abel (Driller Killer) Ferrara.

The story concerns four teenagers who visit a local carnival for a night of innocent amusement. They soon discover, however, that there is nothing innocent or amusing there at all. Instead, they find absolute terror when the four are trapped inside the maze of the funhouse. One by one, each victim is taken by a monster who tauntingly stalks them

Night of the Hunted

Euro-horror cult director Jean Rollin dives into science fiction with an ultra-low-budget picture that resembles nothing less than Sam Fuller's Shock Corridor by way of David Cronenberg. Though it starts out in classic horror fantasy fashion, with a beautiful young woman (Rollin regular Brigitte Lahaie) in a flimsy nightgown rushing breathlessly though a dark forest, the imagery quickly changes tone when she is returned to the mysterious, antiseptic skyscraper asylum known as "Black Tower." Blank-eyed inmates with dissipated memories wander through the featureless white hallways and empty rooms, helpfully making up stories for one another to stand in for their lost pasts. Like in most of Rollin's films, the story is more fascinating before the exposition and explanations, when the ambiguous conspiracies and the stark landscapes create an unsettling, alienated world out of time and place. The wooden acting is transformed into an asset, a dazed cast of shuffling living zombies somewhere between shock and stupor slowly losing their minds. In true Rollin fashion, he takes time out for gratuitous sex scenes and nudity and weaves a disconnected series of gory murders into a story that never really makes sense in the first place, but the ethereal, poetic imagery creates an enigmatic psychodrama more concerned with mood and texture than narrative. The new Redemption release restores two scenes cut by the producers for its theatrical release. The DVD features the theatrical trailer and a gallery of production stills.

2 DVD Speical - Day of the Dead 2 and Sleepless

Day of the Dead 2:
n 1968, in the Raveide Military Hospital in a military facility in Pennsylvania, the army loses control of an experiment of a lethal biological weapon that changes the DNA and transforms human beings into zombies. A group of soldiers are sent to the hospital to eliminate the infected staff and interns but private DeLuca steals a test tube with the virus and hides it inside a vacuum flask. He is transformed into a zombie and killed but the vacuum flask falls into the grass.

In the present day, a group of patients in the mental institution Ravenside Memorial Hospital finds the vacuum flask and later when one of them opens the vessel, the culture tube drops on the floor of a bathroom contaminating the group.


Sleepless:
Dario Argento, the undisputed Master of Horror, returns to form in this serial killer shocker. Retired Detective, Moretti (Max von Sydow) is asked to assist in the investigation of a series of brutal murders that bear all the signs of a case he worked on 17 years ago. The Dwarf Murders included the violent death of the mother of Giacomo (Stefano Dionisi) whose killer Moretti has promised to find.

Giacomo returns to Turin and stays with his friend Lorenzo (Roberto Zibetti). When the killer strikes again, Moretti finally agrees to help and together with Giacomo starts to unravel the mystery and fulfill his promise from years before.

From the opening credits accompanied by the eerie soundtrack, Dario Argento's unique style is evident as he creates a visual nightmare recalling favorite elements from his previous films: - the black gloved killer , the selection of shiny knives against red material, close ups of bloody weapons and beautiful women.

2 DVD Special - Blood Feast 2 & House by the Cemetery

Blood Feast 2
From the godfather of gore, Herschell Gordon Lewis, comes the most eagerly awaited sequel in the blood red history of splatter cinema! The cannibal caterer is back with a new recipe for gross-out, comedic carnage that literally blows chunks across the silver screen! From the groundbreaking production team of H.G. Lewis and David Friedman, the maniacal masterminds responsible for BLOOD FEAST, 2000 MANIACS and COLOR ME BLOOD RED, BLOOD FEAST 2 is a gorehound's wet dream!

House by the cemetery
Dr. Norman Boyle (Paolo Malco), of the New York Historical Society, accepts a research assignment abandoned by a colleague who has committed suicide. The project requires the researcher to temporarily take up residence in a New England mansion along with his wife, Lucy (Katherine MacColl) and their son, Bob (Giovanni Frezza). Norman discovers his colleague had become consumed with the history of the home's original owner, a turn-of-the-Century surgeon named Dr. Freudstein who possessed a fondness for illegal experiments. Further investigation reveals Freudstein had found a way to stay alive by using cells derived from fresh human blood. The Boyles find out the hard way that the maggot-stuffed, undead doctor remains lurking in the shadows of the house, killing anybody who crosses his path. While the plot does at times lose itself to vagueness and the inexplicable, Italian director Lucio Fulci reinforces his "Godfather Of Gore" moniker as visceral sequences (human mutilation aplenty, along with a gut-wrenching decapitation) unfold before the camera in the maestro's customary extreme close-up style. Made during the height of his career, HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY is one of Fulci's most admired favorites. A percentage of the film's popularity must also be credited to the inadvertently humorous English dubbing of Italian child star Giovanni Frezza's "Bob" character, performed by a much older female actress.
