Dread's VAL In Select Theaters (1 October), On Demand (5 October) & Blu-Ray (USA, Canada / 2 November)

Fin is a criminal on the run, wanted for the murder of his boss and the accidental shooting of an officer. He breaks into the home of a high-class escort, only to discover that you get more than you bargain for with Val, short for ‘Valefar’ – a demon who offers to make all Fin’s problems disappear if he agrees to follow her rules.

But in Val’s world there are no accidents, and as Fin meets her other “customers”, he learns that she was expecting him all along, and it isn’t easy to escape Val’s dungeon.

“You don’t stand a chance in hell with her.”

CultFilms Presents the 4K Restoration of Marco Ferreri’s THE APE WOMAN on Blu-ray & Digital (UK / 11 October)

CultFilms Presents the 4K Restoration of Marco Ferreri's THE APE WOMAN on Blu-ray & Digital (UK /11 October)

From Marco Ferreri, perhaps best known for the wildly sensational satire La Grande Bouffe, CultFilms is proud to present one of the director’s earliest and most controversial films, The Ape Woman (1964). Deemed too challenging for the 1964 Cannes Film Festival, an alternative ‘happy’ ending was created for the festival that eventually went on to pick up a Palme d’Or nomination that year. For this world first ever Blu-ray release, CultFilms presents Ferreri’s own original edit now shown complete and uncut.

“No other woman looked like her, felt like her, loved like her…”

Spree (2020, USA) Review

Spree (2020, USA) Review

Ladies and gentlemen start your engines and prepare to burn rubber for contemporary comedy-horror Spree. Honk, Honk! Spree stars Joe Keery as Kurt Kunkle, an obsessed boy who wishes to be a popular social media influencer like his idols Bobby Basecamp and Jesse Adams. The only problem is he has a limited audience watching his channel as he is an excruciatingly dull person. He has tried everything to get noticed on YouTube, like playing video games, promoting shoes, and doing tutorials. But none of those are helping him in getting his foot through the social media door.

Strip Club Massacre (2017, USA) Review

Strip Club Massacre (2017, USA) Review

If you’ve ever wanted to break into indie filmmaking, read on because you’ll find what I’m about to say uplifting. Strip Club Massacre, co-written and directed by Bob Clark, proves that anyone, regardless of skill, equipment, money, or talent, can make an independent film and find a distributor for it. So grab a camera, get on out there, and start filming: the light is green.

The best thing about Strip Club Massacre is the title, because it perfectly sets up exploitative expectations. Where things sort of fell apart was in all aspects of the execution…

“She has a killer body.”

PG: Psycho Goreman (2020, Canada) Review

PG: Psycho Goreman (2020, Canada) Review

Special effects in the style of 1990s TV series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are what attracted me to PG: Psycho Goreman. Within the first few minutes, and throughout PG, I had spotted several tributes to Power Rangers, from the soundtrack to the concept of a villain trapped underground, freed unwittingly, to the Planetary Alliance. That’s not to say PG wasn’t an original film, as Mimi’s family, and Mimi in general, are unusual characters.

Mimi is a spoilt brat who obtains a gemstone that can control the ultimate intergalactic supervillain, Psycho Goreman.
