This April Indicator presents a quartet of maverick, genre-twisting dramas from some of the most unique and brilliant voices in American cinema.
Indicator presents UK Blu-ray premieres of Suddenly, Last Summer (1959), The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre (1967), Little Murders (1971), and The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds (1972).
“These are powers and passions without precedent in motion pictures!”
Your Local Boogeyman didn’t come here to fight monsters. Share the ❤️ this Valentine’s Day with a Creature from the Black Lagoon t-shirt. Stock for the tees are running extremely low. Buy one whilst there is still proof of the creature’s existence. You have been warned!
“Not since the beginning of time has the world beheld terror like this!”
Indicator will be giving one of international cinema’s most acclaimed works its long-overdue UK Blu-ray premiere, and delving further into the vaults to unearth more criminally underseen British gems.
Available 19 March 2018, Indicator proudly presents Michelangelo Antonioni’s The Passenger, John Guillermin’s tense Town on Trial, Dick Clement’s Otley, and Stephen Frears’ auspicious feature debut, Gumshoe.
“I used to be somebody else…but I traded him in.”
With the dark days of winter well and truly upon us, Indicator dares once again to venture into the vaults of the UK’s most celebrated purveyor of chills…
Available 19 February 2018, Indicator presents Hammer Volume Two: Criminal Intent, and Stanley Kramer’s Oscar-winning drama Ship of Fools.
“Explorer, Mistress, Vagrant, Loafer, Artist, Tramp… They are all at the Captain’s table!”
Masked hero dressed to the nines with gizmos galore? Check.
Doughy character actors scurrying about in silly costumes? Check.
Twelve half-hour episodes of the aforementioned cheesiness, and more? Check.
“So, Commando Cody, Sky Marshal of the Universe. As one scientist to another, I must congratulate you. You have conquered space! A great achievement…for an Earthman.”
Having blessed his first flick The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms with a mostly solemn tone, director Eugene Lourie tried to make lightning strike twice with 1959’s The Giant Behemoth. Unfortunately its impact doesn’t resonate nearly as much as it’d like.
“SEE the Beast that shakes the Earth! LIVE in a world gone mad! WATCH the chaos of a smashed civilization! FLEE from the mightiest fright on the screen! NOTHING so Big as Behemoth!” PRESS PLAY ►
Cinema’s fascination with fusing the horror and western genres has proven to be as resilient as it has bewildering. It’s not uncommon to see the wild west go weird on the big screen. 1959’s The Living Coffin hails from Mexico, and in addition to presenting the world of tumbleweeds and bucking broncs with a supernatural bent, it goes one step further by incorporating aspects of its own cultural horror heritage.

Produced by Toho Studios and released in 1956, the Ishirō Honda directed Rodan is one of studio’s first kaiju eiga to be filmed in colour, which is used to great effect due to the attention to detail that both Ishirō Honda and special effects director Eiji Tsuburaya had employed.

I Married a Monster from Outer Space, while it may resemble some third-rate Body Snatchers riff on the surface, is one of the most daring and subversive films of its time. The flick still has the spaceships, death rays, and rubber aliens that warm any sci-fi lover’s heart, but it also has both an agenda and the ability to properly smuggle it in the guise of a nifty little genre thriller.
“Shuddery things from beyond the stars, here to breed with human women!” PRESS PLAY ►
I’m just going to come out and say this; I didn’t really like Airplane! Although occasionally funny with its over-the-top nature, I found the film to be schlocky and unintelligent, which was a viewpoint I maintained up until I saw the movie that it is spoofing, Zero Hour!
“The life of everybody aboard depends on just one thing…finding someone back there who cannot only fly this plane, but didn’t have fish for dinner.” PRESS PLAY ►
If The Day the Earth Stood Still were all about getting Gort to work, it’d probably look a little something like Tobor the Great. For all of its talk about space exploration, artificial intelligence, and even psychic phenomena (yep, the robot’s telepathic, too), the film retains a personal edge, a smallness that makes its huge ideas a bit easier to relate to and digest.
“Gee, Tobor, you’re wonderful!” PRESS PLAY ►
