Grindhouse Releasing Confirmed Blu-ray Release Of “The Beyond” And “Cannibal Holocaust”

Independent U.S. distributors Grindhouse Releasing have confirmed that they will release on Blu-ray Lucio Fulci's cult film The Beyond(1981), starring Catriona MacColl, David Warbeck, Cinzia Monreale, and Veronica Lazar, and Ruggero Deodato's controversial film Cannibal Holocaust (1980), starring Robert Kerman, Francesca Ciardi, Perry Pirkanen, and Luca Barbareschi. No actual date has been set for the release of what is arguably two of horror’s most impactful films on the genre.

the beyondThe Beyond:
A young woman from New York named Liza (Katherine MacColl) inherits a Louisiana motel that has been unoccupied for nearly 60 years. While restoring the old building, many of the workers meet mysterious and untimely deaths, each more ill-fated than the next. Furthermore, Liza is visited by a blind specter named Emily (Sarah Keller) who lectures from a 4,000-year-old book of collected prophecies that explains the motel is situated above one of seven portals to hell. As her sanity dwindles, Liza finds some much-needed stability in a local doctor named John McCabe (David Warbeck), who is determined to find a rational explanation for the recent state of affairs.

Nevertheless, the protagonists are led through a maze of bizarre confrontations with beings beyond the realm of the living, and into an apocalyptic world of unknown horrors. The Beyondis at once the quintessential Lucio Fulci film and a staple in the overall Italian horror genre. The director's epic masterpiece is a blend of atmospheric surrealism and nightmarish visions (a grisly tarantula attack, flesh-melting acid spills, a softball-sized gun blast through the skull of a young zombified girl, and an eyeball impaling or two) that are definitely unsuitable for those with weak stomachs.

Banned and heavily censored the world over, here is a film that surpasses its reputation as a shot-gun blast to the senses. Cannibal Holocaust presents the "found footage" of a group of four documentary filmmakers who experience brutal death at the hands of a savage South American tribe of flesh-eaters. This footage is so intense, so graphic and so unflinching in its realism that the director and producer of Cannibal Holocaust were arrested upon its original release and the film seized. With a soundtrack by Riz Ortolani.

Discover The Fantastic Design Of Planet Boom Boom And The Berserk Death Dealer

berserk death dealerThe great thing about independent filmmakers is the sheer power of unobstructed, freedom to explore new ways to tell a story beyond the standard, excepted design we are often encouraged consume with reluctant, butter-flavored contempt. That ability to create freely, without outside influences trying to direct the film based on a secondary agenda, is pretty much a normal state of being within the indie community, where the most relative interest is a passionate desire to create a great film the budget will allow. It often produces a film that is a awesome spectacle of experimental artistry, which is exactly what I found when I can across Planet Boom Boom’s “The Berserk Death Dealer”.

“The Berserk Death Dealer” is a fused genre blending story bringing anime vision into live action territory. Written and directed by Vishal Rajput, “The Berserk Death Dealer” the bad-ass assassin Young Alejandro, of the Demon Clan. He can smoke a joint in one puff, drain a bottle in one gulp, and talk trash better than anyone. And when he gets going, his blades sing, his fists fly, and his enemies' heads explode.

His demonic master, Basilisk, has plans for Alejandro -- but everything changes when Alejandro discovers his humanity and spares the life of a young mother. Now Basilisk is out to destroy Alejandro, with the help of a new protégé -- Amon, a ruthless assassin formed from the souls of 1,000 serial killers...

Poster And Trailer Released For “The Pick-Axe Murders III: The Final Chapter”

A new poster and trailer has been released for horror film “The Pick-Axe Murders III: The Final Chapter”. This actually the first film for this indie slasher story so don’t worry-you haven’t missed the previous installments. First Week of Winter Films and Director Jeremy Sumrall stated back during a crowd funding campaign that since this was a story that they wanted to get out to the horror fans and visualized it as a probable trilogy they it was key to produce the best possible film, which considering the very big leap of faith a filmmaker takes with financing, Sumrall chose “Chapter III” because it packaged the most intense material from the story and if they only got to make one film this one was it. Hopefully fans will embrace “The Pick-Axe Murders III” and later we will see the the other two segments to this new slasher mythos. If not this title is a pretty sure bet that a cult status is in the cards as a constant flow of new indie horror fans come across this film hooked by the “The Final Chapter” title.

pick axe murders III“The Pick-Axe Murders III” stars Tiffany Shepis, A. Michael Baldwin, Roxy Vandiver and Kelly Byrns. Check out the trailer that was revealed by Fangoria.

In the summer of 1982, a group of campers was horribly slaughtered at Camp Arapaho in the sleepy little town of Woodland Hills. The 10 gruesome murders were blamed on Alex Black, a mysterious man believed to have been the son of Satan himself, whom the townspeople had hunted down and lynched nearly 20 years prior. A young woman named Adrienne was able to defeat Alex and put a stop to the killing spree.

One year later, a series of mysterious killings at the Meadow Falls Sanitarium (where Adrienne had spent the last year as a patient) was once again linked to the mysterious Alex Black. Twenty patients and staff members were horribly slaughtered in increasingly graphic and brutal ways. In the end, a young man named George Miner, along with Adrienne, was able to defeat Alex Black, sending him back to the foul hell from whence he came.

For five years, Alex Black has been silent, and the town of Woodland Hills has been peaceful. However, tonight is the night of the death moon, and someone has found a way to bring Alex Black back to life…and Alex will not stop until he paints the town blood red.
