The Warriors

R2 Portugal






Tonight they're all out to get the Warriors.

A battle of gigantic proportions is looming in the neon underground of New York City. The armies of the night number 100,000; they outnumber the police 5 to 1; and tonight they're after the Warriors - a street gang unfairly blamed for a rival gang leader's death.

This contemporary action-adventure story takes place at night, underground, in the sub-culture of gang warfare that rages from the Bronx to Coney Island Bay, as the Warriors desperately try to get back home. Members of the Warriors fight for their lives, seek to survive in the urban jungle and learn the meaning of loyalty.




From Hell

Region 2 Portugal



From Hell is a gory detective film cloaked in Victorian-era mystique. The movie depicts how the serial killer Jack the Ripper stalked the dark streets of 1888 London, slaying prostitutes and crudely dissecting their bodies. Based on the graphic novel written by Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell, this moody chiller is directed by twin brothers Albert and Allen Hughes.

While Jack the Ripper ruled the streets of London, terror reined. His savagery implied insanity, but his diabolical precision pointed to a method in his madness. In 1888 London, the unfortunate poor lead horrifying lives in the cites slums. Harassed by gangs and forced to walk the streets for a living, Mary Kelly (Heather Graham) and her small group of companions are terrorised when their friend is kidnapped and another in their group is gruesomely murdered.

The sinister murder grabs the attention of inspector Fred Abberline (Johnny Depp), a brilliant yet troubled man whose police work is often aided by his psychic abilities. Abberline becomes deeply involved with the case and as he gets closer to the truth it becomes more and more dangerous for Abberline, Mary and the other girls. Will they be able to survive the avenging force that has been sent after them from Hell?

Das Experiment

Region 2 Portugal

The Experiment is based on the infamous "Stanford Prison Experiment" conducted in 1971. A makeshift prison is set up in a research lab, complete with cells, bars and surveillance cameras. For two weeks 20 male participants are hired to play prisoners and guards. The 'prisoners' are locked up and have to follow seemingly mild rules, and the 'guards' are told simply to retain order without using physical violence. Everybody is free to quit at any time, thereby forfeiting payment. In the beginning the mood between both groups is insecure and rather emphatic. But soon quarrels arise and the wardens employ ever more drastic sanctions to confirm their authority.

Sleepless - Non Ho Sonno

R1 Canada


The ultimate nightmare dreamed wide-awake!
Dario Argento, the undisputed Master of Horror, returns to form in this serial killer shocker. Retired Detective, Moretti (Max von Sydow) is asked to assist in the investigation of a series of brutal murders that bear all the signs of a case he worked on 17 years ago. The Dwarf Murders included the violent death of the mother of Giacomo (Stefano Dionisi) whose killer Moretti has promised to find.
Giacomo returns to Turin and stays with his friend Lorenzo (Roberto Zibetti). When the killer strikes again, Moretti finally agrees to help and together with Giacomo starts to unravel the mystery and fulfill his promise from years before.
From the opening credits accompanied by the eerie soundtrack, Dario Argento's unique style is evident as he creates a visual nightmare recalling favorite elements from his previous films: - the black gloved killer , the selection of shiny knives against red material, close ups of bloody weapons and beautiful women.

The Driller Killer

Region 2 UK

Director Abel Ferrara's (Bad Lieutenant) first major feature has an infamous reputation but is actually more of an art film than a straightforward bloodletter. Tortured and penniless artist Reno (Ferrara) and his girlfriends Carol (Carolyn Marz) and Pamela (Baybi Day) hang out at their New York loft, enduring such problems as the phone bill, the rent, and a rock band that's always practicing downstairs. When it all becomes too much, Reno grabs his drill and runs through the city on all-night rampages. Eventually, Carol moves out, Reno's paintings don't sell, and things just get worse. Shot on gritty 16mm, The Driller Killer has a distinctly 1970s New York underground artistic quality that makes it seem like a cross between Taxi Driver and Andy Warhol's Trash.

Shock Waves

Region 1



Beneath the living, beyond the dead, they rose from the depths of hell's ocean! In the dark days of World War II, the Nazi High Command ordered its scientists to create the Death Corps, a top secret race of indestructible zombie storm troopers--un-living, unfeeling, unstoppable monstrosities able to kill with their bare hands. No member of this horrific SS unit was ever captured by the Allied forces--and somewhere off the coast of Florida, they have survived. Peter Cushing, Brooke Adams, and John Carradine star in this suspenseful and genuinely creepy shocker co-written and directed by Ken Wiederhorn. One of the great horror "sleepers" of the ‘70s, "Shock Waves" has now been transferred from the director's own vault print and digitally restored for this premiere DVD release!

Dog Soldiers

Region 1



A visceral horror about a squad of British soldiers on a routine training exercise in the wilds of Scotland. Their greatest worry is missing the football until they stumble upon Captain Ryan - the sole survivor of a Special Operations team literally torn to pieces. Ryan refuses to reveal the secret of his mission even though whoever ate his men is keen for second helpings.

Luckily local girl Megan leads them to a deserted farmhouse deep in the forest, but when they realise that this is home to a pack of vicious werewolves it's apparent their nightmare has only just begun. Sean Pertwee stars as the sardonic sergeant, with Kevin McKidd as the heroic private and Liam Cunningham as the utterly twisted Ryan. With only each other to rely on, the battle between men and monsters is also a battle amongst themselves - in which loyalty, bravery and ingenuity is truly put to the test.

Emotionally powerful and never afraid to portray the ugly, destructive face of ignorance and prejudice, 'Romper Stomper' excites, disturbs, and boldly challenges the viewer.

Winner of 3 Australian Institute Awards, including Best Actor (Russell Crowe), film critics have hailed Romper Stomper as one of the most brilliant, provocative and truly exciting motion pictures to appear on the screen.
