Promotional Material

Immediately following the success of Black Sunday, Mario Bava was recruited to direct (and photograph) the second of Reg Park's Hercules films for producer Achille Piazzi. Freely departing from Roman mythology, the film gave Bava the opportunity to reimagine the sword-and-sandal genre. On its surface a jovial comedy adventure, Hercules in the Haunted World features a striking use of color, which would become one of Bava's directorial hallmarks. But this playful peplum is tinged with a sense of genuine foreboding, voiced by a masked oracle Medea (Gaia Germani) in one of the film's most stunning sequences. When Hercules descends into the depths of hell and confronts Lico (Christopher Lee), who has the power to call forth corpses from their tombs, the film plunges into the eye-popping, bone-chilling horror for which Bava had recently become famous.

Special Features: - 2K restoration from the original camera negative
- U.S. release version: Hercules in the Haunted World (with optional English SDH captions)
- European release version: Vampire gegen Hercules; aka Ercole al centro della Terra (Italian dialogue with optional English subtitles)

FROM THE SECRET FILES OF THE VATICAN!

Aging blonde-bombshell Anita Ekberg ( La Dolce Vita , Pick-up Alley ) gives a full-bodied performance as a sex-crazed sister with some seriously bad habits in the lurid cult classic Killer Nun .

One of the most notorious nunsploitation films, Killer Nun tells the sordid story of Sister Gertrude, a disturbed woman of the cloth who degenerates into a perverse mire of drug taking, sexual perversion, sadistic torture and murder. Joe Dallesandro ( The Climber , Flesh for Frankenstein ), Alida Valli ( The Possessed , Suspiria ) and the ample Paola Morra ( Behind Convent Walls ) offer spirited performances and able support to Ekberg, in this outrageous tale based on real events.

Boasting an incongruously classy score by legendary composer Alessandro Alessandroni ( Women's Camp 119 ) and stylishly rendered scenes of sex and murder, Killer Nun takes the viewer on a hair-raising journey from the heights of religious ecstasy to the depths of devilish degeneracy. Now Giulio Berruti s sleazy classic is presented in a stunning new 2K restoration with a liturgy of new extras, ready to be preyed upon.

    USA TV Sci-Fi horror by Fraser C Heston just released on US Blu-ray

    The Stand is a USA TV Sci-Fi horror by Fraser C Heston.
    Starring Gary Sinise, Molly Ringwald and Jamey Sheridan. IMDb

    Exists as a cut Broadcast TV Version and an uncut Extended Version.

    Review from Jon: Uncut

    Okay, I'm super-pleased to report that despite my earlier claims, and the claims on many other websites/forums, the Region Free US Blu-Ray of THE STAND is completely uncensored!

    The extended sexual assault is in, as is the extended scene of Rayna's suicide. In fact it's exactly identical to the old Artisan DVD edition.

    The only alterations, are:

    1. You can watch the entire 5hr 59m saga in one, ultra-long movie, OR you can view each episode individually. However, although episodes are all titled on-screen, only the start of episode 1 and end of episode 4 have any credits.

    2. At the start of episode 1, the original broadcast edition had a biblical quote from Revelations, which has been replaced with a quote from TS Eliot.

    3. Some of the original broadcast TV logos have been removed or replaced, at the beginning and end of the entire feature.

    The picture is better, and far sharper than any previous editions, but the bit-rate varies from 12mbps to 30mbps. So it really should have been spread-over two Blu-Ray's. However, it's still looks amazing even when viewed on my 58 4K Panasonic TV set. You'd never have guessed it was a TV mini-series, from the picture quality.

    But it's uncut, and that's what ultimately matters!

    US: The Extended Version is uncut and MPAA Unrated for:
    • 2019 Paramount Collector's Edition (RA) Blu-ray at US Amazon released on 24th September 2019

The only problem is that local legend has it that the mansion is haunted by an evil witch named Alma Martin, who was murdered by her adulterous husband, only to rise from the dead and kill him, along with anyone else who comes near her cursed property. As the Andrews settle in, Barbara begins to sense a strange presence surrounding the house and is slowly possessed by Alma's vengeful spirit, who is determined to use Barbara's body as vessel for her to re-enter the world and soon demonstrates that she has no concerns over murdering anyone who tries to stop her.

    The second film directed by Herb Freed ( Graduation Day ), BEYOND EVIL is a gothic inspired supernatural horror film, taking liberal inspiration from the castle-set Italian chillers of the 60s, but with a healthy dose of early 80s sleaze, including creative kills and outrageous optical effects. Starring John Saxon ( Black Christmas ) and Linda Day George ( Pieces ) and featuring a lush score by Pino Donaggio ( Dressed to Kill ), Vinegar Syndrome is proud to bring BEYOND EVIL to Blu-ray, newly restored in 2k from 35mm archival film elements.

    1. Region Free Blu-ray/DVD combo
    2. Newly scanned & restored in 2k from 35mm vault elements
    3. "Origins of Evil" - a brand new video interview with director Herb Freed
