“Who is laughing now?”
Available now in the 101 Films x AGFA (American Genre Film Archive) collection: a wild shot-on-video horror anthology from Baltimore, a double bill of ’70s adult movies with the stories brought to the fore, an ultra-violent slasher from Toronto that tackles the toxicity of early 90s society, and a violent and histrionic psychodrama that represents an overlooked early entry in the canon of queer cinema.

Arriving on Blu-ray from 101 Films, Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th takes viewers behind the mask on an epic journey into the making of the landmark horror franchise – from its humble beginnings in 1980 at a New Jersey summer camp to the 2009 blockbuster “reboot.”
“I had thought of this title some time ago… and I said to myself, ‘If I had a film called Friday the 13th, I could sell that!'”
When will I learn that a great premise doesn’t necessarily mean a film will be great or even good. Just like the enjoyable Werewolves Within, the similarly titled Beast Within is a werewolf whodunit that references the party game. However, that is where the similarities end. The acting in Beast Within is woeful. There is no emotion, no chemistry, and no believability in most of the characters. When the werewolf is finally revealed, that particular character becomes a bit more three-dimensional and believable. I don’t know how much of the film’s issues lie with the bad writing or directing.
“It’s no longer a game.”
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…”
