Jill has just returned home from college to the rural farm community where she grew up, only to discover that her parents have mysteriously vanished. Learning that her father, a banker, has become the local pariah for overseeing land foreclosures on local farmers, Jill quickly becomes the victim of a series of strange and increasingly depraved assaults.

    ENTER... IF YOU DARE!

    A talented and versatile journeyman, director Sergio Martino (The Case of the Scorpion's Tail, Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key) has lent his talents to multiple genres across his long and varied career, but it is undoubtedly his giallo thrillers from the early 70s for which he is best known. Among the most highly acclaimed of these, 1973's Torso revels in the genre's time-honored traditions while simultaneously laying the groundwork for the modern slasher movie.

    A sex maniac is prowling the streets of Perugia, targeting picturesque university town's female students. Alarmed at plummeting life expectancy of the student body, Jane (Suzy Kendall, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage) and her three friends elope to a secluded country villa only to discover that, far from having left the terror behind, they've brought it with them!

    Also known as ''Carnal Violenc''e, Torso was released in Italy towards the end of the giallo boom before enjoying a second life on the American grindhouse circuit. Co-starring Tina Aumont (Salon Kitty) and Luc Merenda (The Violent Professionals), the film finds its director at the top of his game, delivering copious levels of violence, sleaze and one of the tensest cat-and-mouse games ever committed to celluloid!

    HE QUIT THE GANGS. THEY KILLED HIS GIRL. HE BECAME... DEADBEAT AT DAWN

    Jim VanBebber's notorious, blood-drenched cult classic Deadbeat at Dawn rises again on the advent of its 30th anniversary, newly restored for the first time on Blu-ray. Locked and loaded with a raft of new extras, see Deadbeat as you've never seen it before in all its head-busting, bone-crushing glory!

    Written by, directed by and starring VanBebber, Deadbeat follows the story of Goose a gang leader whose girlfriend is brutally slaughtered when he attempts to leave the thug life behind. Pulled back into the gang, who've now formed an uneasy alliance with the thugs that butchered his girl, Goose sees an opportunity to exact his brutal, deadly revenge.

    The very definition of DIY, independent filmmaking (VanBebber quit film school after his first year and used his student loan to fund the movie), Deadbeat at Dawn surpasses its low-budget origins to create a revenge movie that delivers more thrills and bloody spills than all of Chuck Norris' films combined.

    Bloodlust - The world Blu-ray premier of a sick 1970s shocker!

    Haunted by a childhood trauma... a deaf mute accountant develops a fixation with blood spilling across his skin. Brief flirtations with ketchup and red ink seem to satisfy him at first, but he soon develops a taste for the real thing. Though he nurses a weird fascination for a neighbourhood girl who passes the time by dancing on the rooftop, he remains socially withdrawn with his co-workers and can't even find comfort in the arms of a hooker. One night he breaks into the property of the local undertaker and ravages the prettiest female corpse. Now addicted, he habitually raids the tombs of the dead and drinks blood from their throats via a spiked, double pronged glass straw. Authorities and citizens are incensed by these crimes and the search is on for this modern day vampire.

    BLOODLUST is one of the darkest and most affecting horror movies to come out of 1970s Europe. Based on the macabre true story of Kuno Hofmann, the "Vampire of Nuremberg", the film plays like a kind of grown up fairy tale, albeit one that includes bloodsucking, eyeball evisceration and voyeuristic lesbian sex scenes among a host of other activities. Cut and banned in many countries, this is the full length version in all its gruesome, gory, glory.

    SPECIAL FEATURES:
    Brand new 2k transfer from film negative.
    Exclusive interview with assistant director.
    Exclusive interview with actress Birgit Zamulo.<br. Original UK trailer.<br. German/English audio choice.
    Newly created, optional English subtitles.

    Dead American Woman - The DVD debut of the never before seen Director's Cut.

    Massacre Video proudly presents the gore filled, darkly comedic, and slightly surreal no-budget horror opus by director Peter Romeo Lambert's (NURSE JILL) DEAD AMERICAN WOMAN. A film that nightmarishly blends the aesthetics of underground film making with slasher set pieces. Co-starring Selwyn Harris (DEVIL IN MISS JONES 5) and an unforgettable performance from Wiley George Finley as Grandpa, DEAD AMERICAN WOMAN makes its official DVD debut, in its never before seen director's cut.

    After being brought back from the grave through 'the excrement of an innocent,' murdered go-go dancer Tabitha (Julie Fabulous) sets out to avenge her death, which was at the hands of snuff film producing religious zealot, Virginia Slim (Heather Marie Vernon). Enlisting the aid of Cynthia, whose young daughter also met a gruesome fate from Virginia and her clown-faced henchman, Happy (Happy Dave), Tabitha begins exacting bloody vengeance against all those who wronged her, in the hope that through her acts of violence she'll earn a place in the kingdom of hell. But with each increasingly brutal slaying, Cythia's own blood lust becomes more and more apparent, leading to unexpected consequences…

    Flesh & Blood - The Making of Dead American Woman.
    Dead Reunion - Extended and Deleted Scenes.
    Thoughts & Words with Wiley Finley.
