Promotional Material

From cult Spanish filmmaker José Ramón Larraz ( Vampyres , Symptoms ) comes this long-neglected late 80s slasher classic, finally unleashed on Blu-ray for the first time ever!

The rural community of Paddock County is being rocked by the crazed exploits of an axe-wielding psychopath, who stalks the night in a black trenchcoat and mask. As the victims pile up, the authorities attempt to keep a lid on the situation, whilst computer whizz-kid Gerald and girlfriend Lillian seek to unmask the killer before the town population reaches zero.

Nominally set in Northern California but shot primarily in Madrid, giving the film an off-kilter, American/European atmosphere akin to the likes of Pieces , Edge of the Axe is a late entry hack-and-slash masterpiece from one of the titans of Spanish terror.

    Shopping: Paranoia...

    1970 Italy / France / Spain crime mystery thriller by Umberto Lenzi set for UK Blu-ray release on 24th February 2020


    Link Here 20th November 2019
    Paranoia (aka A Quiet Place to Kill) is a 1970 Italy / France / Spain crime mystery thriller by Umberto Lenzi.
    Starring Carroll Baker, Jean Sorel and Luis Dávila. BBFC link IMDb  

    Shortened and/or cut in the US and was titled A Quiet Place to Kill. This version was passed X by the BBFC for 1973 cinema release. The original version titled Paranoia was passed 15 uncut for 2019 Blu-ray.

    In 1969 another film from the same director was called Orgasmo in Italy but was re-titled Paranoia in the US. This then caused confusion when in the following year the director made another film and called it Paranoia. So to save confusion the US distributors re-titled the second film to A Quiet Place To Kill. But this has caused confusion ever since.

    Even the current distributors got  confused as they initially announced the wrong film on their Facebook page.

    Summary Notes

    A race-car driver whose life, both personal and professional, is in a rapid downfall is invited by her ex-husband's new wife to stay at their plush estate. The two women form a bond, and it's not long before their mutual dislike for the husband culminates into a plan to kill him. As it turns out, though, they're not alone in plotting murder.
