As the winter nights draw close, Indicator is delighted to offer a selection of dark and disturbing film entertainment.
On 10 December, Indicator presents William Castle at Columbia, Volume Two, the second of their limited edition blu-ray box sets dedicated to one of American cinema’s most iconic filmmakers. This second installment features four weird and wonderful films from the master showman’s illustrious career with Columbia Pictures: the delirious Zotz! (1962); the chilling 13 Frightened Girls (1963); Castle’s one and only collaboration with Hammer Films, The Old Dark House (1963), starring a host of great British actors including Robert Morley, Joyce Grenfell and the late Fenella Fielding; and the gruesome Strait-Jacket (1964), written by Psycho author Robert Bloch, and starring Hollywood legend Joan Crawford.
Also on 10 December, Indicator presents Joan Crawford in another of her outrageous 1960s horror roles – as the ruthless circus owner in Jim O’Connolly’s dark and twisted Berserk (1967). Starring alongside the indomitable Ms Crawford in this lurid murder mystery is a host of renowned British actors, including Judy Geeson, Michael Gough and Diana Dors.
All films are presented on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK and are complemented by a wealth of essential extra features and comprehensive booklets containing new essays and archival reprints. Mastered from the finest available materials, these essential releases feature expertly encoded presentations, collectable limited edition packaging, and English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing.
