On 24 September, Indicator presents four dark and disturbing tales, each featuring some of Britain’s most iconic acting talents. First, two films starring Terence Stamp: John Fowles’ twisted classic The Collector (1965); and the Frankenstein-inspired Amicus sci-fi/horror The Mind of Mr. Soames (1970). Also in September, Indicator presents the UK Blu-ray premiere of Anthony Page’s underrated mystery-thriller Absolution (1978); and Jamil Dehlavi’s hallucinatory mystical-horror film Born of Fire (1987).
On 20 August, Indicator presents a selection of thrilling and powerful films: Fritz Lang’s Ministry of Fear (1944) stars Ray Milland in a classic tale of murder and suspense; Ronald Neame’s The Odessa Files (1974) is a chilling espionage thriller; Costa-Gavras’ Oscar-winning Missing (1982) is a true-life drama of a father’s quest to uncover the truth of his son’s disappearance; and David Mamet’s Oleanna (1994) is a daring adaptation of his controversial and ever-relevant stage-play.
“We thought you’d been killed.”
After the success of A Nightmare on Elm Street in 1984, many a movie that moulded together slasher thrills and supernatural chills was rushed into production – from Slaughterhouse Rock to The Horror Show and Wes Craven’s own Shocker. None, however, were quite as notable nor as notorious as the bombastic blood-spiller Bad Dreams from 1987, which roped in its own Freddy Krueger alumni with sexy scream queen starlet Jennifer Ruben.

As a British kid who had little interest in American High School movies, I was shown the original 1988 film Heathers by an American friend and was much surprised and amused by the sly subversiveness of its pitch-black satire. It offered the conventional ‘Mean Girls’ social dynamics, but offset that with extremes of murder and suicide.
Made a decade before the tragic shootings at Columbine high school, Heathers is a film that appears more controversial now than it was at the time that it was made.
“Best friends, social trends and occasional murder.”
Waxwork Records is thrilled to announce the release of Get Out original motion picture soundtrack music composed by Michael Abels. Written and directed by accomplished actor and long time horror-fanatic Jordan Peele, Get Out is a critically acclaimed 2017 American horror film starring Daniel Kaluuya.
