“If you’ve got to fight…fight dirty!”
From the era that bought us the seedier Carry On film series also came a run of other ‘delightfully of their time’ British sex comedies. This beautifully presented set from 88 Films brings together three of those typically silly and salacious soft porn romps in Zeta One, Au Pair Girls and The Sex Thief.
“A bedroom romp through the fifth dimension!”
Fists flurry and blood flows as legendary cult director Teruo Ishii (Shogun’s Joy of Torture, Horrors of Malformed Men) joins forces with martial arts legend Shin’ichi ‘Sonny’ Chiba in this bone crunching double whammy of classic karate exploitation from Toei.
“Chiba… is back! More deadly than any weapon!”
From producer Prachya Pinkaew, the filmmaker behind modern martial arts classics, Ong Bak, Warrior King and Chocolate, comes a new hero from a world of supernatural horror…
“From the darkness he will rise.”
Available on Blu-ray from 101 Films – for the first time in the UK – 2010 documentary Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy is the definitive account of modern cinema’s eternal bogeyman and what has been called the most frightening and imaginative horror franchise in motion picture history!

However, he soon learns that the system is corrupt and to get the revenge he seeks he must join an underground vigilante group.

Coming to UK Blu-ray from 101 Films for the first time in October: sword-wielding gladiators on motorcycles and a telepathic terrier, in a pair of crazed sci-fi features from the 1970s.
“In the year 3000 there’ll be no more Olympic Games, World Series, or Superbowl. There’ll be only… Deathsport!”
Finally, a sequel that truly delivers. After being resurrected by a sinister entity, demented Art the Clown returns to the timid town of Miles County where he targets a bereaved family, especially teenage Sienna and her younger brother Jonathan. And it’s Halloween night, so pray you don’t get in deranged Art’s way!
“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.
“A public access version of Creepshow from the wilds of Baltimore.”
Presented by Arrow Video in new 4K restorations of its original theatrical version and extended ‘Unrated Edition’, Wild Things is a classic piece of sexy late-90s neo-noir.
