Cut by the BBFC for X rated 1974 cinema release. A slightly short restored version is MPAA Unrated in the US.

Promotional Material

Maurice Ronet (Purple Noon) stars as Giuseppe Lagana, a European playboy who returns to his home in the Sicilian town of Catania to settle his deceased father s affairs. He reunites with an old friend, Caterina (Lisa Gastoni), and a mid-life romance is kindled from the sparks of their youthful attraction. But Giuseppe fi nds he is not immune to the sexual magnetism of Caterina s teenage daughter, Graziella (Jenny Tamburi). Soon Giuseppe s paternal affection evolves into adult passion, and he and Graziella are engaged in a tempestuous affair, willfully ignoring the consequences should Caterina discover them. Though best known for his bloody poliziotteschi, Fernando Di Leo (Shoot First, Die Later) proved himself just as adept at the erotic thriller, savoring the irresistible charm of the modern Lolita, while masterfully building tension around a love affair that, by its very nature, is destined to end tragically.

The Girl From Recife

Clara, a 65 year old widow and retired music critic, was born into a wealthy and traditional family in Recife, Brazil. She is the last resident of the Aquarius, an original two-story building, built in the 1940s, in the upper-class, seaside Avenida Boa Viagem, Recife. All the neighbouring apartments have already been acquired by a company which has other plans for that plot. Clara has pledged to only leave her place upon her death, and will engage in a cold war of sorts with the company, a confrontation which is both mysterious, frightening and nerve wracking. This tension both disturbs Clara and gives her that edge on her daily routine. It also gets her thinking about her loved ones, her past and her future.

Sonia Braga delivers a tour-de-force performance as Dona Clara in Kleber Mendonça Filho's follow up to his audacious 2012 debut, Neighbouring Sounds, where, once again, the Brazilian film critic, turned director, examines human life in urban spaces in his home town of Recife. Clara's eclectic collection of LP's and her vintage French 3-sheet poster of Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon, the latter item belonging to the director, will delight lovers of packaged media and memorabilia, items that Clara herself calls 'special objects'.

    Not cut by the BBFC but there is an R rated cut version knocking around that last ended up on Arrow 2014 DVD and Blu-ray. This was later replaced with an uncut version

    Arrow previous screwed up and released the cut version in 2014.They later sorted out the error and hopefully this latest re-release is the uncut version.

    Promotional Material

    BEING TERRIFIED IS JUST THE BEGINNING...

    Initially reviled in its native land (some critics took exception to the fact the film was largely funded by the Canadian taxpayer), Shivers is an intensely claustrophobic, subversive masterpiece and an essential entry in the oeuvre of one of the horror genre s most gifted auteurs. Some 40 years after its release, it still retains its power to shock.

    Starliner Island is an idyllic community. Cut off from the rest of the world, the luxury apartment block affords its occupants the chance to escape from the hustle and bustle of the big city. But this isolation is to prove fatal when a new breed of parasite a combination of aphrodisiac and venereal disease which arouses sexual aggression in its hosts is let loose in the building, resulting in an orgy terror and mayhem.

    Known under a host of alternate titles such as The Parasite Murdersand They Came From Within!, Shivers is the startling debut full-length feature from director David Cronenberg which anticipates the body-horror concerns of his later films such as The Fly and Videodrome.

    Promotional Material

    Award-winning filmmaker Kiyoshi Kurosawa delivered one of the finest entries in the "J-Horror" cycle of films with this moody and spiritually terrifying film that delivers existential dread along with its frights. Setting his story in the burgeoning internet and social media scene in Japan, Kurosawa's dark and apocalyptic film foretells how technology will only serve to isolate us as it grows more important to our lives.

    A group of young people in Tokyo begin to experience strange phenomena involving missing co-workers and friends, technological breakdown, and a mysterious website which asks the compelling question, "Do you want to meet a ghost?" After the unexpected suicides of several friends, three strangers set out to explore a city which is growing more empty by the day, and to solve the mystery of what lies within a forbidden room in an abandoned construction site, mysteriously sealed shut with red packing tape.

    Featuring haunting cinematography by Junichiro Hayashi (Ring, Dark Water), a dark and unsettling tone which lingers long after the movie is over, and an ahead-of-its-time story which anticipates 21st century disconnection and social media malaise, Pulse is one of the greatest and most terrifying achievements in modern Japanese horror, and a dark mirror for our contemporary digital world.

    Summary Review: A must-see for B horror fans

    A young psychiatric nurse goes to work at a lonesome asylum following a murder. There, she experiences varying degrees of torment from the patients.

    Take an ensemble cast of good B grade actors, give them a good script, a somewhat original premise, and unobtrusive directing, and you may end up with a film that over-achieves as much as Don't Look in the Basement did.

    The film takes place in a large house which is home to several psychotic individuals. The film starts with the head of the hospital being chopped up with an axe. The rest of the film builds tension and successfully develops the individual psychoses of the in-mates. After a while it becomes very unclear who is a patient and who is a doctor.

    In the end, Don't Look in the Basement is a cleverly plotted film which benefits from generally good acting and directing and not-overly-ambitious camera work.

    THE RETURN OF THE LOVING DEAD

    Monika isn t like other young women. She shares her small flat with Rob, a recently disinterred corpse which serves as the object of her affections. But then she meets good-natured Mark, and soon finds herself torn between the prospect of a normal life with a living, breathing partner and her overwhelming desire for her rotting bed-fellow.

    Once prosecuted in its native Germany for glorifying violence , Jörg Buttgereit s follow-up to his ground-breaking Nekromantik is just as shocking as its reputation would suggest. But it s also a profoundly moving (if decidedly twisted) love story, and a thought provoking meditation on the nature of life and death.

    Dripping with style and foreboding, the much anticipated feature debut from acclaimed short filmmaker Lorcan Finnegan tells the story of Eric, a land surveyor hired by a private contractor to assess an isolated woodland location. Leaving behind his wife and child, Eric is joined in the remote countryside by a younger female research assistant with whom he shares a complicated history. Beguiled by the forest, the pair go about their work all the while sensing an ominous presence lurking amongst the trees.

    From its seemingly simple starting point, Finnegan imbues his bucolic nightmare with an escalating sense of dread. Shot with an uncanny eye for the fantastic, and boasting a truly ominous sound design, this sensory experience upholds the long tradition of the rural gothic, transforming the natural environment into a portentous landscape which is at once hypnotic, terrifying and, ultimately, somewhat trippy.

    Censorship History

    The BBFC advised cuts on seeing early rough cuts of the film. The advise was adopted for the 1972 cinema release which became the definitive version of the film.

    The film was cut in the US for an R rated theatrical release. The cuts were to the 2 rape scenes, and famously seemed to convert Susan George being taken from behind into a scene of anal rape.

    The definitive version was released several times on pre-cert VHS between 1980 and 1985.

    The BBFC procrastinated for several years over a post VRA video release, effectively banning the video. The BBFC particularly objected to the first rape scene where the Susan George character ended up enjoying the sex. The cut US R rated version was eventually formally banned twice in 1995.

    The cut US R rated version was passed 18 uncut by the BBFC for a 1995 cinema release.

    The film was unbanned on video in 2002 when the definitive version was passed 18 uncut for DVD.

    Promotional Material

    In this thriller, arguably Sam Peckinpah s most controversial film, David (Dustin Hoffman), a young American mathematician, moves with his English wife, Amy (Susan George), to the village where she grew up. Their sense of safety unravels as the local men David has hired to repair their house prove more interested in leering at Amy and intimidating David, beginning an agonizing initiation into the iron laws of violent masculinity that govern Peckinpah s world. Working outside the U.S. for the first time, the filmmaker airlifts the ruthlessness of the western frontier into Cornwall in Straw Dogs, pushing his characters to their breaking points as the men brutalize Amy and David discovers how far he ll go to protect his home culminating in a harrowing climax that lays out this cinematic mastermind s eloquent and bloody vision of humanity.

    There are no censorship issues with this release

    Promotional Material

    Released just as the popularity of yakuza movies was waning in Japan, and as the country's film industry was undergoing some fundamental shifts, Doberman Cop is a unique entry in the career of director Kinji Fukasaku (Battles Without Honor and Humanity, Cops vs Thugs), and reunited him with star Shinichi "Sonny" Chiba (The Street Fighter, Wolf Guy) in an American-style crime movie that mixes gunplay and pulp fiction with martial arts and lowbrow comedy to create one of their most entertaining films.

    Based on a popular manga by ""Buronson"" (creator of Fist of the North Star), Doberman Cop follows the fish-out-of-water adventures of Joji Kano (Chiba), a tough-as-nails police officer from Okinawa who arrives in Tokyo's Kabuki-cho nightlife district to investigate the savage murder and mutilation of an island girl who had been working as a prostitute. Initially dismissed as a country bumpkin (complete with straw hat and live pig in tow!), Kano soon proves himself a more savvy detective than the local cops, and a tougher customer than anyone expected. As he probes deeper into the sleazy world of flesh-peddling, talent agency corruption and mob influence, Kano uncovers the shocking truth about the girl, her connection to a yakuza-turned-music manager (Hiroki Matsukata), and a savage serial killer who is burning women alive.

    Made to appeal both to the youth market with its biker gangs and popular music, as well as to old-time yakuza movie fans, Doberman Cop is an surprising oddity in Fukasaku's career, his sole film adapted directly from a manga and never before released on video outside of Japan. Featuring Chiba at his charismatic best channeling a Japanese Dirty Harry while doing all his own stunts and Fukasaku at his most fun, deftly showcasing the combined talents of his ""Piranha Army"" stock company of actors and other regular players Doberman Cop is a classic action comedy and a missing link in 1970's Japanese cinema deserving of rediscovery.

    Promotional Material

    In 1970, young first-time director Dario Argento (Deep Red, Suspiria) made his indelible mark on Italian cinema with The Bird with the Crystal Plumage a film which redefined the giallo genre of murder-mystery thrillers and catapulted him to international stardom.

    Sam Dalmas (Tony Musante, We Own the Night), an American writer living in Rome, inadvertently witnesses a brutal attack on a woman (Eva Renzi, Funeral in Berlin) in a modern art gallery. Powerless to help, he grows increasingly obsessed with the incident. Convinced that something he saw that night holds the key to identifying the maniac terrorising Rome, he launches his own investigation parallel to that of the police, heedless of the danger to both himself and his girlfriend Giulia (Suzy Kendall, Spasmo)...

    A staggeringly assured debut, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage establishes the key traits that would define Argento s filmography, including lavish visuals and a flare for wildly inventive, brutal scenes of violence. With sumptuous cinematography by Vittorio Storaro (Apocalypse Now) and a seductive score by legendary composer Ennio Morricone (Once Upon a Time in the West), this landmark film has never looked or sounded better in this new, 4K-restored limited edition from Arrow Video!
