Controversial German filmmaker Jörg Buttgereit ( Nekromantik , Nekromantik 2 ) takes you into the twisted mind of a deranged sex killer in the last of his feature films to date, 1993 s deeply disturbing Schramm .
Lothar Schramm, the so-called Lipstick Killer , lies dying in a pool of blood and paint. As he expires, fragments of his life flash before his eyes his uneasy friendship with the prostitute that lives next door ( Nekromantik 2 s Monika
M); the brutal slaughter of a pair of doorstep evangelists whose bodies he poses in obscene fashion; his unhealthy pastime of hammering nails into his own manhood.
Told in an entirely non-linear fashion, Jörg Buttgereit s Schramm with its nightmarish hallucinatory sequences involving severed limbs and gaping, sharp-toothed female genitalia comes about as close as a film can get to transporting you
directly into the world of a sick, disordered mind.

One of British genre cinema's most important and distinctive independent filmmakers, Norman J Warren made a series of horror films which were at the forefront of a new wave in British horror during the 1970s. Reflecting a period of
permissiveness and fearlessness, Warren's distinctive stylings are far removed from the Gothic conventions of Hammer Films, deliberately upped the ante in terms of sex, violence and gore to create a new breed of horror that was designed to shock
for shock's sake.
Five of Norman J Warren's horrifying chillers are presented here in new restorations and on Blu-ray for the very first time in the UK. Containing a wealth of new and archival extras -- including new appreciations by contemporary British
filmmakers, new cast and crew interviews, audio commentaries on all five films, rare short films, outtakes and alternative scenes, and making-of documentaries -- this stunning Limited Edition box set from Indicator is strictly limited to 6,000

Through the unholy rites of black magic, the notorious female vampire Carmilla Karnstein is reincarnated as a luscious young debutante (stunning Swedish starlet Yutte Stensgaard). But when the depraved seductress is enrolled at an exclusive
girls' school, she begins to inflame the desires of her fellow students as well as her weak-willed teacher (Ralph Bates). Can these perverse hungers be quenched by the mere taste of blood or will an entire village be unwittingly consumed by
their LUST FOR A VAMPIRE? Directed by Jimmy Sangster (THE HORROR OF FRANKENSTEIN, DRACULA: PRINCE OF DARKNESS).
