This 5-disc set includes 1958's The Fly starring Vincent Price, The Return of the Fly, in which the son of the original scientist continues his father's work and a woman marries into the wrong family in The Curse of the Fly. David Cronenberg's remake of The Fly frightened audiences with its ground-breaking effects and the performance by Jeff Goldblum as Seth Brundle, a scientist whose teleporting experiment takes a tragic toll on him. The Fly II, the chilling sequel to the remake, stars Eric Stoltz as Seth Brudle's son who is showing the effects of his father's experiment.

But when tragedy strikes, Delambre's brother (Vincent Price) and Inspector Charas (Herbert Marshall) are forced to pick up the investigation.

Unlike any horror film you've ever seen!

Based on the classic novella by Nikolai Gogol - and previously adapted by Mario Bava as BLACK SUNDAY - the first horror film ever produced in the Soviet Union remains "genuinely frightening" (1001 Films You Must See Before You Die), "a visual grab bag of terror" (FilmInquiry.com) and "one of the best horror films of all time." (IndieWire).

In 19th century Russia, a seminary student is forced to spend three nights with the corpse of a beautiful young witch. But when she rises from the dead to seduce him, it will summon a nightmare of fear, desire and the ultimate demonic mayhem. Bursting with startling imagery and stunning practical effects by directors Konstantin Yershov and Georgi Kropachyov, this "overlooked classic" (Paste Magazine) has influenced generations of directors for more than half a century and is still unlike any horror movie you've ever seen.

BILLY PILGRIM LIVES - FROM TIME TO TIME TO TIME...

Past, present and future collide in darkly satirical fashion in Slaughterhouse-Five ! Based on Kurt Vonnegut s classic 1969 novel, this tale of time travel and alien abduction emerged as part of a wave of more cerebral science-fiction films in the late 60s to early 70s, elevating the genre beyond the B-movie fare of previous decades.

Upstate New York, 1968. Mild-mannered Billy Pilgrim (Michael Sacks, The Sugarland Express ) finds himself unstuck in time . Traveling back and forth across the entire span of his existence, he experiences key events of his life in a random order, including his formative years, the firebombing of Dresden and finally, at some undefined point in the future, his surreal adventures on a distant planet.

Praised by Vonnegut himself for its fidelity to his novel, Slaughterhouse-Five boasts assured direction by George Roy Hill ( Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid ) and a memorable score by renowned concert pianist Glenn Gould. Now exclusively restored in 4K, Slaughterhouse-Five shines like never before, reinforcing its timeless appeal.

    BEYOND THE HORIZON LIES THE SECRET TO A NEW BEGINNING

    The most expensive film ever made at the time of its release, Waterworld has thrilled audiences through the years with its awe-inspiring action scenes, gargantuan maritime sets and ground-breaking special effects.

    A definitive post-apocalypse blockbuster, Waterworld stars Kevin Costner ( The Untouchables ) as The Mariner - a mutant trader, adrift in a dystopian future where Earth is submerged under water and humankind struggles to survive on boats and in ramshackle floating cities. The Mariner becomes embroiled with the Smokers, a gang of pirates who, led by villainous leader Deacon (Dennis Hopper, Blue Velvet ), are seeking Enola (Tina Majorino, Napoleon Dynamite ), a girl with a map to the mythical realm of Dryland tattooed on her back.

    Famous for both its epic scale and the controversy that swirled around its production, Waterworld is a key cult film of the 1990s, and an essential entry into the subgenre of ecologically-minded blockbusters. Presented here in a stunning restoration, in two different cuts and with a wealth of extra material, this high-water mark of high-concept Hollywood can now be enjoyed as never before.

    Two friends make a rash decision to hire a hitman to kill their wives. Enter Igor, a Russian contract killer who prefers taking shots to doling them out. Quickly regretting their dumb decision, the men try to call Igor off, but he won't be dissuaded. Things get even worse when their wives learn of the plot and hire their own assassin. Now it's a race to see who will be the last men (or women) standing.

    THE PRICE OF ADMISSION IS THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.

    One of Quentin Tarantino s favourite directors, Brian Trenchard-Smith was a key figure in the Ozploitation movement, responsible for The Man from Hong Kong, Stunt Rock, Turkey Shoot, BMX Bandits... and dystopian cult classic Dead-End Drive In!

    Set in a near-future where the economy has crumbled and violent gangs play havoc in the streets, the powers-that-be have decided to lure the delinquent youth into drive-in cinemas and keep them there. No longer just a place to watch trashy movies and make out, these outdoor picture shows have become concentration camps for the unruly and unwanted.

    With its day-glo colour scheme, new wave soundtrack and extraordinary stunt work, Dead-End Drive-In is in the tradition of Ozploitation milestones Mad Max and The Cars That Ate Paris only very, very eighties.

    HE WHO WALKS BEHIND THE ROWS

    From the mind of celebrated horror author Stephen King, the man behind such classic terror tales as The Shining, Carrie and It, comes one of his most chilling offerings yet Children of the Corn.

    In an early 20th century village, a painter with an unusual commission finds two pretty girls to model for him. Stephanie and Julia, who have been close friends in a small village dominated by the church, share a naked swim together on a hot summer day, which ignites fiery passions in both of them. Julia wants to find a romantic prince to rescue her from her unhappy family, while Stephanie yearns to experience all life has to offer. When Julia's father hears of her sexual transgressions, she is sadistically punished... Through these experiences, the girls slowly come of age while exploring their sexuality and finding liberation in a repressed society. The beautiful Taylor Sands and Daniella Rosa star in this homage to the politically-charged erotic cinema of Tinto Brass, Walerian Borowczyk, and Jess Franco.

From Michael Cimino, the legendary director of The Deer Hunter, Heaven's Gate and Year of the Dragon comes this bold, witty and tough crime-thriller starring screen icons Clint Eastwood (A Fistful of Dollars) and Jeff Bridges (Winter Kills) as a pair of modern-day outlaws.
