Be careful who you hitch a ride with! All roads lead to terror in Hitch Hike to Hell, the delightfully sleazy cautionary tale from cult director Irvin Berwick ( Malibu High , The Monster of Piedras Blancas ).

Howard is a mild-mannered momma's boy whose job running deliveries for a cleaning agency affords him a lot of time out on the road. It s not until he picks up young women who've run away from home that he transforms into a twitching, homicidal maniac, hellbent on meting out punishment for their transgressions. Can the cops put a stop to Howard s demented spree before he claims yet another victim?

Influenced by the depraved crimes of the likes of ''Co-ed Killer'' Edmund Kemper, Hitch Hike to Hell is a bonafide American nightmare from the vaults of legendary exploitation producer Harry Novak ( The Child , Toys Are Not for Children ).

    THE PRICE OF ADMISSION IS THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.

    One of Quentin Tarantino s favourite directors, Brian Trenchard-Smith was a key figure in the Ozploitation movement, responsible for The Man from Hong Kong, Stunt Rock, Turkey Shoot, BMX Bandits... and dystopian cult classic Dead-End Drive In!

    Set in a near-future where the economy has crumbled and violent gangs play havoc in the streets, the powers-that-be have decided to lure the delinquent youth into drive-in cinemas and keep them there. No longer just a place to watch trashy movies and make out, these outdoor picture shows have become concentration camps for the unruly and unwanted.

    With its day-glo colour scheme, new wave soundtrack and extraordinary stunt work, Dead-End Drive-In is in the tradition of Ozploitation milestones Mad Max and The Cars That Ate Paris only very, very eighties.

    In an early 20th century village, a painter with an unusual commission finds two pretty girls to model for him. Stephanie and Julia, who have been close friends in a small village dominated by the church, share a naked swim together on a hot summer day, which ignites fiery passions in both of them. Julia wants to find a romantic prince to rescue her from her unhappy family, while Stephanie yearns to experience all life has to offer. When Julia's father hears of her sexual transgressions, she is sadistically punished... Through these experiences, the girls slowly come of age while exploring their sexuality and finding liberation in a repressed society. The beautiful Taylor Sands and Daniella Rosa star in this homage to the politically-charged erotic cinema of Tinto Brass, Walerian Borowczyk, and Jess Franco.

From Michael Cimino, the legendary director of The Deer Hunter, Heaven's Gate and Year of the Dragon comes this bold, witty and tough crime-thriller starring screen icons Clint Eastwood (A Fistful of Dollars) and Jeff Bridges (Winter Kills) as a pair of modern-day outlaws.

    In 1954, an enormous beast clawed its way out of the sea, destroying everything in its path--and changing movies forever. The arresting original Godzilla soon gave rise to an entire monster-movie genre (kaiju eiga), but the King of the Monsters continued to reign supreme: in fourteen fiercely entertaining sequels over the next two decades, Godzilla defended its throne against a host of other formidable creatures, transforming from a terrifying symbol of nuclear annihilation into a benevolent (if still belligerent) Earth protector.

    Collected here for the first time are all fifteen Godzilla films of Japan's Showa era, in a landmark set showcasing the technical wizardry, fantastical storytelling, and indomitable international appeal that established the most iconic giant monster the cinema has ever seen.

    In 1998, director Hideo Nakata ( Dark Water ) unleashed a chilling tale of technological terror on unsuspecting audiences, which redefined the horror genre, launched the J-horror boom in the West and introduced a generation of moviegoers to a creepy, dark-haired girl called Sadako. The film s success spawned a slew of remakes, reimaginations and imitators, but none could quite boast the power of Nakata s original masterpiece, which melded traditional Japanese folklore with contemporary anxieties about the spread of technology.

    A group of teenage friends are found dead, their bodies grotesquely contorted, their faces twisted in terror. Reiko (Nanako Matsushima, When Marnie Was There ), a journalist and the aunt of one of the victims, sets out to investigate the shocking phenomenon, and in the process uncovers a creepy urban legend about a supposedly cursed videotape, the contents of which causes anyone who views it to die within a week unless they can persuade someone else to watch it, and, in so doing, pass on the curse...

    Arrow Video is proud to present the genre-defining trilogy Ringu , the film that started it all, plus Hideo Nakata's chilling sequel, Ringu 2 , and the haunting origin story, Ringu 0 as well as the 'lost' original sequel, George Iida's Spiral , gathered together in glorious high definition and supplemented by a wealth of archival and newly created bonus materials.

    Written and directed by Matthew Chapman (Strangers Kiss), and starring the great Helen Mirren (Age of Consent), Hussy is an offbeat blend of adult thriller and almost romantic comedy. Set in the seedier side of London, the film focuses on a prostitute, played by Mirren, who begins an affair with a man, played by John Shea (Missing), harbouring a dark secret. Part of producer Don Boyd's efforts to reinvigorate British cinema in the late seventies and early eighties, with films such as The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle and the cinema version of Scum, Hussy is an unsung and underseen gem deserving of a wider audience.

    A rare, intimate glimpse into the life and mind of Jordan Peterson, the academic and best-selling author who captured the world's attention with his criticisms of political correctness and his life-changing philosophy on discovering personal meaning. Christened as the most influential public intellectual in the western world, University of Toronto psychology professor Jordan Peterson skyrocketed to fame after he published a controversial viral video series entitled "Professor Against Political Correctness" in 2016. Within 2 years, he sold over 3 million copies of his self-help book, 12 Rules For Life, and became simultaneously branded by some as an academic rockstar selling out theatres around the world, and by others as a dangerous threat to progressive society. THE RISE OF JORDAN PETERSON intimately traces the transformative period of Peterson's life while visiting rare moments with his family, friends and foes who share their own versions of the Jordan Peterson story.

    Nudie-Cuties were popular in grindhouse theaters in the early 1960's but they were eventually replaced with more explicit fare. 3-D was a natural for this genre with such titillating promises as "A girl in your lap" and "They dance right off the screen into your arms."

    For The 3-D Nudie-Cutie Collection the 3-D Film Archive has restored two rare features from this era of sexploitation. The Bellboy and the Playgirls (1962) stars June "The Bosom" Wilkinson and includes new scenes directed by 22-year-old Francis Ford Coppola, including a finale in "The New Depth Perception." Adam and Six Eves (1962) was filmed with the venerable Natural Vision camera rig in 1962 but was never released in 3-D.

    The final feature film directed by legendary British horror filmmaker, Norman J. Warren ( SATAN'S SLAVE , TERROR ), BLOODY NEW YEAR is a distinctly original hybrid of slasher, supernatural horror, and near surrealism, elevated by impressively executed and fittingly violent death sequences, along with one of the most absurd and jaw-dropping final twists present in any 80s horror film. Vinegar Syndrome is pleased to offer this prime cut of mind-bending horror on Blu-ray, restored from what is believed to be the only surviving film elements!

    Catherine and her family are invited to stay for the week at the Yorke family estate, a massive piece of land in the countryside owned by Catherine's uncle, Alexander Yorke. When a mysterious accident takes the life of Catherine's mother and father, Alexander offers for her to stay with him until she gets well. Under the care of her uncle, his mysterious assistant, and Catherine's perverse cousin, Stephen ( Martin Potter ; Fellini's Satyricon ), Catherine begins growing ever suspicious of her family's intent on keeping her at the estate. Soon she discovers that her family may be hiding dark secrets linked to their sinful past...

    Director Norman J. Warren's ( PREY , TERROR ) debut horror film, SATAN'S SLAVE , remains one of the most shocking and controversial entries in the history of 1970s British horror. Filled with unflinching imagery of brutal violence and frequent nudity, the film suffered frequent censorship throughout its release history, including the shooting of a sanitized version of its brutal opening assault. Written by acclaimed British horror screenwriter David McGillivray ( House of Whipchord ) and luridly photographed in Techniscope, Vinegar Syndrome proudly offers SATAN'S SLAVE in its fully uncut and uncensored worldwide Blu-ray debut, in a new 2K restoration, and featuring a fresh commentary track with director Norman J.

    Promotional Material

    From the imagination of Oscar-winning director Guillermo del Toro ( Pan s Labyrinth , The Shape of Water ) comes Crimson Peak , a lavish, stunningly realized journey into the dark heart of Gothic romance...

    Beginning in Buffalo, New York, during the 1880s, Crimson Peak stars Mia Wasikowska ( Alice in Wonderland , Stoker ) as Edith Cushing, an aspiring writer who is haunted by the death of her mother. Edith falls in love with seductive stranger Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston, The Avengers ), who whisks her off to Allerdale Hall, his baronial, yet dilapidated English mansion built upon a mountain of blood-red clay. Here Edith meets Lucille (Jessica Chastain, Zero Dark Thirty ), Thomas s sister who at times seems hostile and jealous. As Edith struggles to feel at home in the imposing residence, she gradually uncovers a horrendous family secret and encounters supernatural forces that will help her discover the terrible truth behind Crimson Peak.

    Boasting incredibly intricate and ornate production design and a rich visual style, del Toro s film is a grandiose, boldly baroque triumph of Gothic decadence, which expertly combines and contrasts the sublimely beautiful with the shockingly grotesque. Crimson Peak is presented here with a wealth of extra features, affording unprecedented insight into the making of this modern Gothic classic.

    Murder goes luxe in this hilarious horror romp produced by the top tome in terror, FANGORIA. From mind of renowned author Grady Hendrix (Horrorstör, My Best Friend's Exorcism) and a cast led by Rebecca Romijn (X-Men, The Librarians), Jerry O'Connell (Billions, Piranha 3D) and Ruby Modine (Happy Death Day), SATANIC PANIC is a delightfully camp peek into the dastardly vice of the 1%.

    When Sam's first day slinging pizza is a total wash-out, she goes against her colleague's advice and takes one last delivery in the wealthy enclave out of town. Stiffed for a tip, she breaks into an imposing mansion to make them pay up. Unfortunately, she's gate-crashed the local Satan-worshipping, demon-summoning coven's virgin sacrifice gala! These society sorcerers are down a maiden and now Sam must take on murderous babysitters, blood-crazed soccer mums and more than her fair share of lustful demons if she's going to survive the night.

    Welcome to the 1%, where the rich get richer and the poor get offered to Baphomet.

    In this bizarre and totally unique piece of Spanish horror, David Rocha plays Paul, a young man thrown out of medical school due to his inability to deal with the sight of blood. He goes home to Montpellier in France where his father is gardener on a huge estate belonging to Countess Olivia (played by Helga Liné, ageless diva of Spanish horror). We soon discover that fear of blood is not Paul's only quirk. He was raised as a girl after his sister died and likes to play with dolls, performing strange operations on them, attempting to extract their hearts.

    Meanwhile, in the park surrounding the Countesses' home, a number of young girls have been found murdered. The killer seems to be a mysterious individual wearing a black wig, a white doll mask and speaking with a woman's voice. As the killings multiply around him, Paul sinks ever deeper into a world of hallucination and nightmare.

    Released here for the first time ever on Blu-ray and in its US premier, THE KILLER OF DOLLS is an original and unforgettable film that will be treasured by all who like their horror weird and unsettling.

    Promotional Material

    World premier Blu-ray release of a film from a master of world cinema.

    Like a kind of crazy cinematic ghost train ride, WOMAN CHASING THE BUTTERFLY OF DEATH take us on a journey deep into the darkness of one man's fears and fantasies. That man is Young-gul, a lonely and rather morbid student in late 1970's South Korea. Narrowly surviving a murder-suicide attempt by a woman wearing a butterfly pendant, he next finds himself besieged by a seemingly insane bookseller who claims he can never die. Even after Young-gul burns the man's body his skeleton comes back to taunt him. As if that weren't enough, the poor student then finds himself the victim of a beautiful thousand year old woman (she looks about 25) who says she is hungry and wants to eat his liver!

    The director, Kim Ki-young, was one of Korea's most successful film makers. His 1960 production THE HOUSEMAID is now a recognized classic of world cinema. With this film he goes far beyond the bounds of the real and takes us into a world where anything seems possible, a world where a kind of dream logic rules. Almost impossible to summarize, the film is nevertheless insanely enjoyable. A real one-of-a-kind production that opens our eyes to the limitless possibilities of cinema.
