Evil Dead (2013)

Evil Dead (2013)

In 1981, Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead, the ultimate experience in gruelling horror, was released onto the unsuspecting public. It became a cult classic, spawned two sequels; Evil Dead II (1987) and Army of Darkness (1992) and created a cult icon with the character of Ash, played by the charismatic Bruce Campbell. It was inevitable that this movie was going to be remade…

Halloween (2007)

Halloween (2007)

If you put all comparisons to John Carpenter’s 1978 original slasher aside, Rob Zombie has done an admirable job of trying to demystify the boogeyman. Micheal Myers is not the embodiment of pure evil, but rather a troubled and misguided soul whose self-induced isolation leads him on a killing-spree on Halloween night.

“Inside every one us, there exists a dark side. Most people rise above it, but some are consumed by it. Until there is nothing left, but pure evil.”

Celebrate the launch of ‘88 Italian’ with a double bill of classic Italian carnage!

One of the most fondly remembered eras in fright-film history is the golden age of Italian gore. Spawning all number of surreal sub-genres, including black-gloved killer-thrillers and stomach-churning cannibal adventures, this is a time that continues to crib a fresh generation of fascinated fans. As such, 88 Italian is proud to announce Zombi Holocaust (1980) and Burial Ground (1981).

“Flesh-eating favourites Zombi Holocaust and Burial Ground arrive on UK Blu-ray!”

5 Essential George A. Romero Inspired Zombie Movies

5 Essential George A. Romero Inspired Zombie Movies

It’s sort of ironic. In the late seventies, George A. Romero scorned mindless consumerism in Dawn of the Dead by having his zombies putter around aimlessly in a shopping mall. Now, the zombie thing has become such a cash crop… But for all the goofy gimmickry out there, Romero has inspired a few great films.

“When there’s no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth!”
