Promotional Material

From acclaimed Indonesian director Edwin (Postcards from the Zoo) and based on the novel by Eka Kurniawan comes Vengeance is Mine, All Others Pay Cash, winner of the Golden Leopard at the 2021 Locarno Film Festival -- a pulpy, energetic throwback to 80s South East Asian action and coming-of-age cinema about a young man who can't get it up. Ajo Kawir (Marthino Lio) is a fighter who fears nothing, not even death. But his raging urge to fight is driven by a secret -- his impotence, resulting from a traumatic childhood memory. When he crosses paths with a tough female fighter named Iteung (Ladya Cheryl), Ajo gets beaten black and blue, but he also falls head over heels in love. Will Ajo's path lead him to a happy life with Iteung, and, eventually, his own peace of mind? With echoes of early Takashi Miike, Vengeance is Mine, All Others Pay Cash is a wild and unexpectedly poignant meditation on toxic masculinity and a culture steeped in violence from one of Indonesia's most exciting directorial voices.

Promotional Material

NANCY DANCER DIED ON FEBRUARY 13, 1978. THAT WAS ONLY THE BEGINNING.

With only five films, New Orleans-based writer/producer/director Jack Weis became one of the most enigmatic figures in '70s exploitation. And for his final trashterpiece, Weis delivered a filth-fueled, disco-drenched and gore-soaked epic of butchered hookers, hard-boiled homicide cops and a prissy psycho with an Aztec sacrifice fetish that remains a once-in-a-lifetime sleaze experience.

Curt Dawson (BLOOD BATH), Ronald Tanet (CRYPT OF DARK SECRETS) and February '75 Playboy Playmate Laura Misch star in this "shocking-yet-hysterical fever dream of regional filmmaking" (Bleeding Skull) with a soundtrack by Dennis Coffey & Mike Theodore (BLACK BELT JONES) and still banned in the UK as one of the original DPP 39 Video Nasties, now featuring a 2K master compiled from the best surviving post-Katrina elements and a revealing new interview with Weis himself.

UK: Passed with an aggregate 15 uncut for:
  • 2022 Eureka Entertainment (RB) Blu-ray at UK Amazon #ad released on 3rd October 2022

Promotional Material

Angela Mao and director Huang Feng (The Shaolin Plot) were a superstar pairing that produced an incredible series of top tier kung-fu classics including Deadly China Doll, When Taekwondo Strikes and the two films presented here -- Hapkido and Lady Whirlwind.

In Hapkido (aka. Lady Kung Fu in the West), a group of martial artists (Mao, Sammo Hung, and Carter Wong) start their own school to teach the Korean martial art, Hapkido, but a rival Japanese academy attempts to crush them -- deeming Hapkido inferior to their Japanese fighting style. Similar to the plot of Bruce Lee's Fist of Fury (a canny decision by the filmmakers, capitalising on Mao often being referred to as a female Bruce Lee ), Hapkido was a huge hit in the West, even briefly beating Lee's Enter the Dragon at the North American box office.

Perhaps her most iconic film, Lady Whirlwind (bizarrely re-titled as Deep Thrust in the US, to capitalise on the success of Deep Throat, which probably made its tag lines-The Deadly Stroke of Bare Hand Combatand Mistress of the Death Blow-a tad misleading) stars Mao as a deadly fighter out for revenge on the man who wronged her sister (played by Shaw Brothers veteran Chang Yi). After tracking the man down, she finds he is on his own vengeful path against a gang of Japanese thugs and agrees to help keep him alive -- as long as she gets to take her revenge when it's all over!

A fascinating, slow burn horror, showcasing spectacular performances from leads Sophie Skelton (Outlander) and BAFTA-winner Stuart Brennan, and featuring wrestling legend Bret Hart.

Ana, a young songwriter and piano player, lives alone with her father in a large house on the island of Madeira. She meets a boy and they plan to marry. However when she tells her father of their intentions he tries to persuade her to call off the wedding.

With the help of her aunt, Ana continues with her plans and one day her expensive wedding dress is delivered. Ana puts on the dress and runs happily through the house to find her father. Entering his study she sees, reflected in a mirror, her father hanging by a rope. He has killed himself.

Ana leaves the island for the mainland and gets a job playing with a jazz band. However, she is haunted by visions of her dead father calling to her from beyond the mirror, summoning her to murder any man who gets close to her. Gradually the mirror world takes over Ana's life until she can no longer separate fantasy from reality.

Ebola Syndrome

Ebola Syndrome is a 1996 Hong Kong crime horror by Herman Yau
Starring Anthony Chau-Sang Wong, Yeung-Ming Wan and Fui-On Shing Melon Farmers link  BBFC link 2020   IMDb

Cut by Hong Kong censors when it was released and this is the version that was widely distributed thereafter. A nearly uncut extended version was released in Austria but the film was finally released fully uncut on US Blu-ray in 2021. Likely it was this uncut version that was remarkably passed 18 uncut by the BBFC in 2022.

Summary review: Sicko Gore

A Chinese restaurant worker wanted for murder in Hong Kong contracts Ebola in South Africa, becomes immune to it, and unknowingly spreads the virus there, then comes back to Hong Kong and continues to infect people with it.

A kind of sicko gore film that will never be equalled in Western cinema. The whole film is as twisted as possible as we are shown acts of murder, masturbation, rape and cannibalism in safe Hongkong style! There is no point in trying to review this as some kind of a serious film because this is pure trash and b-level horror/gore film.

Uncut and U rated by the BBFC for many years.  Perhaps the BBFC's bloodiest, albeit animated, U rated film. It is surely one of the BBFC's most controversial ratings. The U was finally uprated to PG for video and cinema release in 2022.

Summary Notes

Based upon Richard Adam's novel of the same title, this animated feature delves into the surprisingly violent world of a warren of rabbits as they seek to establish a new colony free of tyranny and human intervention.

An apocalyptic vision pushes a group of rabbits to abandon their warren in search of a new home, in this landmark British animation. Richard Adam's timeless novel is brought brilliantly to life as Hazel, Fiver and Bigwig tackle the brutal realities of the rural world -- and mankind's devastating impact on it -- as they lead their colony to the utopian Watership Down.

Newly restored in 4K by the BFI and Silver Salt Restoration, using the original 35mm negative and stereo audio tracks, this landmark animation is presented in Ultra High Definition for the very first time.

Featuring an acclaimed voice cast (including John Hurt and Denholm Elliott) a powerful score by composer Angela Morley and the hit single 'Bright Eyes' by Art Garfunkel, Watership Down is a trilling tale of adventure, courage and resilience that continues to enthral new and old audiences alike.

UK: Passed aggregate 15 uncut for:
  • 2022 Eureka Angela Mao: Hapkido & Lady Whirlwind (RB) Blu-ray at UK Amazon #ad released on 24th October 2022

Promotional Material

Angela Mao and director Huang Feng ( The Shaolin Plot ) were a superstar pairing that produced an incredible series of top tier kung-fu classics including Deadly China Doll , When Taekwondo Strikes and the two films presented here -- Hapkido and Lady Whirlwind .

In Hapkido (aka. Lady Kung Fu in the West), a group of martial artists (Mao, Sammo Hung , and Carter Wong ) start their own school to teach the Korean martial art, Hapkido, but a rival Japanese academy attempts to crush them -- deeming Hapkido inferior to their Japanese fighting style. Similar to the plot of Bruce Lee's Fist of Fury (a canny decision by the filmmakers, capitalising on Mao often being referred to as a "female Bruce Lee" ), Hapkido was a huge hit in the West, even briefly beating Lee's Enter the Dragon at the North American box office.

Perhaps her most iconic film, Lady Whirlwind (bizarrely re-titled as Deep Thrust in the US, to capitalise on the success of Deep Throat, which probably made its tag lines--"The Deadly Stroke of Bare Hand Combat"and "Mistress of the Death Blow"--a tad misleading) stars Mao as a deadly fighter out for revenge on the man who wronged her sister (played by Shaw Brothers veteran Chang Yi ). After tracking the man down, she finds he is on his own vengeful path against a gang of Japanese thugs and agrees to help keep him alive -- as long as she gets to take her revenge when it's all over!

Leonardo DiCaprio is on dazzling form in the frenetic true life tale of New York stock-broker Jordan Belfort and his rise from boiler room brokerage firm to a decadent life of obscene wealth, stratospheric drug-use, and rampant corruption.

Amongst overlooked filmmakers, British director Michael J Murphy ranks as one of the most sorely neglected. Having cut his teeth on a variety of homemade 8mm shorts, he had completed three feature-length productions by the age of eighteen. Over the next five decades, Murphy would go on to make many more films across a variety of genres, dividing his production time between Greece, Portugal, and the UK, with family, friends, and local stage performers becoming his regular cast and crew in exchange for holidays in the sun.

Despite this prolific output -- a total of more than thirty completed films over a half-century, of which twenty-six survive -- Murphy's work remains rarely seen and little championed. Fitfully available on videotape, and barely represented on DVD, this comprehensive and long-gestating ten-disc Blu-ray collection seeks to rectify that situation once and for all. Boasting all-new 2K restorations from archival 16mm and 8mm elements, as well as a number of new digital captures from Murphy's personal tape masters, this extensive retrospective of the obsessive auteur's work is bolstered by a wealth of bonus features, including surviving fragments from lost works, and a 120-page book, all of which provides the definitive account of the weird and wonderful worlds of Britain's great unheralded DIY filmmaker.

Sometimes the only way to uphold justice is to break the law.

From Errol Flynn to Disney, Hollywood has long been fascinated with the legend of Robin Hood. Helmed by director Kevin Reynolds (Waterworld, The Count of Monte Cristo), Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves pays homage to the past while transforming the famous outlaw of Sherwood Forest into a movie icon fit for the 1990s.

Robin of Locksley (Kevin Costner, Waterworld) returns from the Crusades to find his father dead and vows revenge. With his Moorish companion Azeem (Morgan Freeman, Unforgiven), he joins a band of peasant rebels to do battle against the wicked Sheriff of Nottingham (Alan Rickman, Die Hard) and win the hand of the fair Maid Marian (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, The Abyss), cousin of the absent King of England.

This grand, swashbuckling adventure in the classic tradition is brought to life by an all-star supporting cast, including Christian Slater (True Romance), Brian Blessed (Flash Gordon) and a memorable cameo from Sean Connery (himself a former Robin Hood), plus an instantly recognisable score by Michael Kamen (Highlander) -- not to mention a chart-topping Bryan Adams theme song. Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves dazzles in an all-new 4K restoration, accompanied by a king's ransom of new and archival bonus features.
