A Hong Kong fashion designer (Jean Claude Van Damme, if you can believe that billing) who had previously been involved in knock offs of major label merchandise, such as "Pumma" running shoes, attempts to go straight with the help of his new partner (Rob Schneider), who is secretly an undercover CIA agent involved in an investigation of the black market. Their main product, jeans, is involved in the knock offs, which brings a representative (Lela Rochon) of the American company to investigate. Paul Sorvino also appears as the head of the CIA operation in Hong Kong. However, just as Schneider is not as he initially seems, everyone in the film switches roles by film's end.

Busan is rumoured to have fended off the virus outbreak and remains the only beacon of hope for those not yet infected. But when the virus breaks out on an express train to Busan, the passengers on board must fight for their own survival.

The station is locked down, leaving the uninfected to struggle against the dangerous undead with no place to run to, not knowing if they will survive.

    Picking up four years later, Jung-seok, a soldier who previously escaped relives the horror when given a covert operation on the quarantined peninsula. When his team unexpectedly stumbles upon survivors, their lives will depend on whether the best-or worst-of human nature prevails in the direst of circumstances.

    Promotional Material

    Max (Dirk Bogarde) is a night porter in a Vienna hotel in the 1950's. When beautiful Lucia (Charlotte Rampling) checks in, they recognise each other from a terrible past; Max was an SS officer in a Nazi concentration camp who had abused and tortured the then teenage Lucia, a prisoner. Lucia is traveling with her husband, an orchestra conductor and when he leaves to continue his tour, Lucia stays behind as she and Max find themselves compelled to renew their former, intense, sadomasochistic relationship.

    Max is a reluctant member of a group of former SS who are ruthlessly covering up their pasts. They soon consider Lucia a threat and urge Max to hand her over. He refuses and hides out with Lucia, while his former comrades enact their threats.

    This is the story of an obsessive passion, an 'amour-fou' which compels two lovers to be together - despite their lucid awareness of contravening all morality, even their own, and the certainty of their oncoming tragic destiny.

    This is the newest 4K restoration supervised by the director herself, making this the most definitive version of THE NIGHT PORTER, finally doing justice to the filmmaker s extraordinary vision.

    For this icily erotic fusion of flesh and machine, David Cronenberg adapted J. G. Ballard's future-shock novel of the 1970s into one of the most singular and provocative films of the 1990s. A traffic collision involving a disaffected commercial producer, James (James Spader), and an enigmatic doctor, Helen (Holly Hunter), brings them, along with James's wife, Catherine (Deborah Kara Unger, in a sublimely detached performance), together in a crucible of blood and broken glass--and it's not long before they are all initiated into a kinky, death-obsessed underworld of sadomasochistic car-crash fetishists for whom twisted metal and scar tissue are the ultimate turn-ons. Controversial from the moment it premiered at Cannes--where it won a Special Jury Prize "for originality, for daring, and for audacity"--Crash has since taken its place as a key text of late-twentieth-century cinema, a disturbingly seductive treatise on the relationships between humanity and technology, sex and violence, that is as unsettling as it is mesmerizing.

    Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of The Godfather: Part III, director/screenwriter Francis Ford Coppola brings a definitive new edit and restoration of the final film in his epic Godfather trilogy--Mario Puzo's THE GODFATHER, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone.

    Michael Corleone (Al Pacino), now in his 60s, seeks to free his family from crime and find a suitable successor to his empire. That successor could be fiery Vincent (Andy Garcia)... but he may also be the spark that turns Michael's hope of business legitimacy into an inferno of mob violence. The film's meticulously restored picture and sound, under the supervision of American Zoetrope and Paramount Pictures, includes a new beginning and ending, as well as changes to scenes, shots, and music cues. The resulting project reflects author Mario Puzo and Coppola's original intentions of The Godfather: Part III, and delivers, in the words of Coppola, "a more appropriate conclusion to The Godfather and The Godfather: Part II."

Clarke) first visits our prehistoric ape-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonised space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted space, perhaps even into immortality.

    The US Theatrical Version was cut for violence to address viewer antipathy for pre-release screenings. These cuts were not applied to the International Release. A few years later the film was revised in response to this success of a bootleg workprint sold as a Director's Cut. The tacky happy ending was removed along with the film noir commentary to create the 1992 Director's Cut, but the cut violence was not restored. Finally the cut violence was restored to the Director's Cut to create the truly uncut, 2007 version called the Final Cut.

    SINS OF THE FLESH - A story of sex without love, from the director of PUSSY TALK!

    Benoît Landrieux, the idle and depraved son of a rich industrialist has two chance encounters on the same day that will change his life forever - Jean-Pierre, a young tearaway who is trying to steal his car, and Isabelle, 20 years old, whom he saves from being raped by her stepfather. Benoît is a coward and a voyeur who gets his kicks from watching other couples make out. He cajoles his two new companions to attempt what he has never dared do - rob the safe in his father's factory, seduce his stepmother to blackmail her for money and finally go so far as committing murder. Thus begins a wild ride that takes them to the very edge of madness.

    Director Claude Mulot made this film under the pseudonym of Frédéric Lansac, the name of a character from his previous horror hit THE BLOOD ROSE. SINS OF THE FLESH marks the start of his transition from softcore films to full on hard core which was confirmed by his next release, PUSSY TALK - one of the most controversial French films of all time. But SINS OF THE FLESH also shows Mulot's background in horror cinema. He presents Benoît as a cunning and complex psychopath, a man who smiles and wears expensive clothes, while inside lurks a monster. The film stars Jess Franco favorite Anne Libert (EROTIC RITES OF FRANKENSTEIN) and comes in a brand new 4k restoration with a host of original extra features.

    SEVEN WOMEN FOR SATAN - A wild psychedelic nightmare of love, lust and damnation!

    By day a mild-mannered businessman, in his dreams Boris Zaroff hunts naked females on his country estates, just like his notorious father. One weekend, two visitors arrive at Boris's castle. The young girl is fascinated by tales of the wicked Zaroffs and asks if she can see their famous torture chamber. Maybe now the Zaroff's dreams can become reality once more.

    SEVEN WOMEN FOR SATAN, originally titled THE WICKED WEEKENDS OF COUNT ZAROFF is a stylish and erotic horror film that was actually banned in France in the 1970s. Severely cut from its original running time and more or less forgotten for decades, the film now reaches Blu-ray in a stunningly restored new version created from the original negative.

    Complete with a host of extras and with many deleted and alternate scenes, this release shows the film, for the first time, in the form its maker intended. An extended version restores the film closer to its original running time and a nearly hour-long interview with cast member and assistant director Robert de Laroche gives a hugely entertaining and insightful view into the making of the film, and the life and work of its creator Michel Lemoine.

    • See review from theguardian.com : " The controversy surrounding the original release of this dark exploration of sexy car accidents now seems quaintly outdated -- but the film holds up well "

    Promotional Material

    Technology and sexuality meet in a head-on collision in Crash director David Cronenberg s controversial adaptation of writer J.G. Ballard s hugely transgressive 1973 novel starring James Spader and Holly Hunter.

    Spader stars as James Ballard, an advertising executive whose deviant sexual desires are awakened by a near fatal automobile accident with Dr Helen Remington (Hunter). Soon the pair, alongside Ballard s wife Catherine (Deborah Kara Unger), are drawn into an underground world of car crash fetishism presided over by renegade scientist Vaughan (Elias Koteas). Danger, sex and death become entwined as eroticism and technology join together in a disturbing, deadly union.

    Awarded the Special Jury Prize at the 1996 Cannes Film Festival for originality, daring and audacity, Crash remains an incredibly subversive and confrontational piece of cinema Cronenberg himself describes it as a dangerous film now newly refurbished in a stunning 4K restoration.

    • This film was originally seen for advice. The company was advised it was likely to be classified 15 uncut but that their preferred 12A classification could be obtained by making small changes to one scene to remove shots of a man kicking a woman. When the film was submitted for formal classification, the shots in question had been removed and the film was classified 12A.

Slausen (CHUCK CONNORS) is the reclusive and bizarre owner of this attraction, which is actually more like a macabre chamber of horrors. The grotesque and frightening mannequins in this sordid side-show are only the beginning of the murderous mayhem and nightmarish madness to come. TOURIST TRAP is widely recognized as one of the scariest and strangest horror movies of the 1970s, a film championed by none other than Stephen King as wielding an eerie, spooky power. Legendary actor Chuck Connors (THE RIFLEMAN, WEREWOLF) stars as Mr. Slausen, a telekinetic psychopath who lures a group of young people to his ramshackle roadside attraction, unleashing an army of psychically controlled mannequins and other monstrosities upon them. Bonus features include: Interview with David Schmoeller., Audio commentary by director David Schmoeller., Rare trailers.
