A stolen computer disc, a stolen supercar, a corrupt corporation and an organised stolen car syndicate all spell trouble for Tommy Lee Jones in the 1986 thriller Black Moon Rising, which is out now on UK BD from Arrow video.

Tommy Lee Jones (Rolling Thunder, Men in Black) plays a high tech theif named Quint, who is hired by the CIA to steal a data tape containing incriminating evidence from a corrupt corporation they're investigating.

Pursued by armed goons, he ends up hiding the tape in the back of a prototype performance car he spots at a remote gas station. But before he can recover it, the car is subsequently stolen by a group of car jackers, lead by Linda Hamilton (Terminator).

Seems her Boss, played by Robert Vaughn (TV's Hustle, The Magnificent 7), is financing his real estate projects using money from the stolen car ring. So now Quint has to work out a way of stealing the car back, so he can get back the stolen tape and get everyone off his back.

Also starring Richard Jaeckel (The Dirty Dozen), William Sanderson (Blade Runner), Don Opper (Critters) Bubba Smith (Police Academy) Keenan Wynn (Dr Strangelove, TVs Dallas) and directed by Harley Cokeliss (Dream Demon, Battletruck). I was surpised to learn this was written by John Carpenter (Halloween) of all people, and was kind of like watching The A Team rescuing the car from Knightrider (the supercar seemed eerily similar to KITT in many ways).

Bit of a weird film to categorise, with some serious plot holes and a rather silly premise. But it passed 90mins reasonably well..

The film comes with the usual raft of special features that can be found on most Arrow discs, which includes...

Audio commentary by Film critic and Historian Lee Gambin

Black Moon Ascending (33 mins) - Interview with director Harley Cokeliss, who discusses his film making career including Black Moon Risiing, Battletruck and his other features.

Genre & sexploitation movie writer/director David McGillivray talks about SCHIZO & Pete Walker

Ahead of Horror Channel’s premiere of Pete Walker’s SCHIZO, horror and sexploitation movie writer/director David McGillivray reflects on disastrous scripts, his volatile relationship with Walker and writing smut for Julian Clary 

Q: SCHIZO is unusual in your body of work with director Pete Walker because the concept and narrative were not of your choosing. How much of a problem was that for you?

DM: Huge. I thought the script that we re-worked was terribly old-fashioned and this led to big arguments with Walker that ended our relationship.

Q: You often play a cameo in the movies you’ve written – you’re ‘Man at Séance’ in SCHIZO. Any particular reason?

DM: I liked to write myself parts so that I could observe Walker at work. He was an extremely talented exploitation director who influenced the remainder of my career.

Q: SCHIZO exhibits many Hitchcockian references and Pete Walker cites Hitch as a hero. Is he for you too?

DM: Yes, of course. Psycho is one of my favourite horror films.

Q: You’ve written many films for many people in so many genres, but what’s your own personal favourite?

DM: My first film for Pete Walker, House of Whipcord. It was very exciting because it was the kind of film I’d dreamed of writing.

Q: Just prior to SCHIZO you wrote a pop opera in the ROCKY HORROR vein for Pete Walker titled SVENGALI based on George du Maurier’s Gothic melodrama. Do you regret that project being shelved?

DM: No, it would have been a disaster. Walker realised this and cancelled it almost before I’d typed the final page of the script.

Q: Your autobiography Little Did You Know is published in June. Rumour says it’s not your typical memoir though, so what’s it all about?

DM: I don’t want to spoil the surprise. Suffice it to say that after its publication I will never work again.

Q: Your love/hate relationship with Pete Walker is common knowledge. Are there any more scandalous revelations about that in the book?

DM: Oh yes… 

Q: You write a lot of the material for comedian. How did that business relationship begin and is this the nearest you can get to the Golden Era of the British sexploitation film you so brilliantly essayed in your book Doing Rude Things?

DM: Writing smut for Julian Clary is my day job. I enjoy it immensely. I have written for him for something like 37 years. In Julian’s latest show, which tours the UK before playing the London Palladium on 8th June, unsuspecting audience members are subjected to so-called ‘Heterosexual Aversion Therapy.’ If you sit in the front row, you deserve all you get.

Q: You’ve announced your next film project is The Wrong People based on the novel by Robin Maugham. So you have no intention of retiring from the film industry just yet?

DM: I love movies. I am fresh from a meeting with a director who bravely has chosen to take on this project. But In all likelihood it is so controversial that probably it will finish both our careers. If Little Did You Know hasn’t finished mine already.

Q: Finally, SCHIZO receives its Horror Channel premiere on Sat April 27th. Will you be watching?

DM: I’m pleased Horror Channel viewers will get the chance to see it, but will I be watching? Certainly not. I can’t bear to see my own work, which is all dreadful.

SCHIZO has its Channel premiere on Horror Channel, Sat 27, 10.40pm.

LITTLE DID YOU KNOW: THE CONFESSIONS OF DAVID McGILLIVRAY is published by FAB Press and it out from June 1.

A colonial mansion harbours a dark secret in Richard Fleischer's SCARED STIFF which makes its UK BD debut courtesy of Arrow films this month.

Rock singer Kate Christopher (Mary Page Keller - TVs Pretty Little Liars, NYPD Blue) moves into an old colonial mansion with her psychiatrist boyfriend David Young (Andrew Stevens - The Fury, A Woman Scorned) and her young son. Only to find the place is inhabited by the ghost of an old slave trader named Masterson.

Ghostly goings on subsequently ensue, as her kids toys come to life, the guy hired to redecorate the place dies in a bizarre accident, she experiences strange nightmarish visions about the house's original occupant and her boyfriends behaviour becomes increasingly erratic. 

One things for sure, its not pigeons they've got up in the old attic.

Directed by Richard Freidman, who went on to direct such "classics" as DOOM ASYLUM and PHANTOM OF THE MALL, this wasn't bad, but was somewhat derivative of "The Amityville Horror" and other haunted house movies of the era.

Interesting to note, the role of Masterson was played by a chap called David Ramsey. But NOT same David Ramsey from the TV show "Arrow" who they have listed on the IMDB. So god only knows who this guy was.

This release from Arrow Video marks the first time the film has been released to BD in the UK and comes packed with the following special features

Audio commentary track with Director Richard Friedman and Producer Dan Bacaner, moderated by film historian Robert Ehlinger.

Mansion of the Doomed (33mins) - A brand new "Making of" documentary featuring interviews with Richard Friedman, Dan Bacaner, Robert Ehlinger, actors Andrew Stevens and Joshua Segal, special effects supervisor Tyler Smith and special effects assistants Jerry Macaluso and Barry Anderson

Interview with composer Billy Barber (6mins) in which the composer discusses how he composed the soundtrack for the film.

Image Gallery - a collection of production stills from the film are displayed against the films soundtrack.

Lastly, the films Original Theatrical Trailer is included.

The sleeve also features alternate artwork on the reverse and the first pressing will contain a Fully illustrated collector’s booklet with new writing on the film by James Oliver.

"The Scroll of Morlok" - crowdfunding campaign

Director Dash Finley got in touch to tell us about his horror short "The Scroll of Morlok", starring Rae Gray (Fear the Walking Dead), which is currently in production and are seeking funds to help complete the project. 

Filmed in the style of a silent horror film, like Nosferatu and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, The story follows Kelly, a young film buff running an indie movie theater. She’s found a print of her obsession - a long lost silent horror classic - The Scroll of Morlok. Kelly projects the film, unfurling the story of a waifish HEROINE who, along with her FIANCÉ, stumbles upon a horrific murder at a country estate. A shadow passes through the light of the projector, giving Kelly the sense that she may not be alone.

With creeping dread, she realizes that what she does in the theater is mimicking exactly what’s happening in the old film. When the movie’s Heroine and her Fiancé notice bloody footprints belonging to the mysterious killer; Kelly notices the same footprints in the theater, leading to a billowing curtain. Then, both in the cinematic world and in ours, a ghoulish monster emerges— MORLOK, a wraith-like phantom out of time, his rotted flesh caked over with stage make-up. Terrified, Kelly realizes she has inadvertently freed the fiendish supernatural villain from his celluloid prison!

TERRA FORMARS (2016) - UK BD review

Takashi Miike's live action adaptation of the popular Japanese comic and animated series TERRA FORMARS makes its UK debut this month on Blu-Ray, courtesy of Arrow films.

Set several hundred years into the future, Earth is looking to colonise Mars and have altered the atmosphere, seeded vegetation and introduced insect life, which are supposed to transform the environment ready for humans.

But when the crew of a space ship crew sets down with orders to kill all the bugs ready for human colonisation, they are surprised when instead of finding lots of little cockraoches, they're confronted instead by 7ft tall humanoids. 

It seems evolution happens at a lot faster pace on Mars and there was a reason this particular band of criminal misfits, which range from Yakuza hit-men and terrorists to computer hackers and serial killers, were chosen for this special mission.

Each crew member is given a DNA shot which will transform them into an evolved insect hybrid, with a special power that will enable them to fight these anthropomorphic insects. If you've seen The Guyver (Mutronics) you get the idea.

Not your typical Takashi Miike film, this bizarre sci-fi tale, which just gets even more bizarre as it goes on, is one that I can only really recommend to fans of the original comic, animated series or fans of Japanese manga. Regular sci-fi fans may wonder what on earth they were watching, as indeed I did. Which wasn't helps by the fact the film is in Japanese with English subtitles, so you really do need to pay attention to whats going on.

The film comes with the following special features

Making of (87mins) - A feature length behind the scenes documentary on the making of the film

Cast Interviews - The 6 principal cast members are interviewed about their roles

Outtakes (4mins) - A series of goofs and gaffs that were cut from the film.

Trailers - The original theatrical trailer and 2x teaser trailers are included.

Stills Gallery - Essentially a photo gallery of on set production stills. 

The first pressing also contains a fully illustrated collector’s booklet with new writing on the film by Tom Mes. Author of 'The Cinema of Takashi Miike'.

A film doesn't need to be a box office hit to have an enduring legacy, as evidenced by genre favorites like Big Trouble in Little China and Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon. Fright-Rags has released new apparel from the pair of cult classics. 

Ol' Jack Burton says to get to Fright-Rags for the Big Trouble in Little China collection, which features four new tees from the John Carpenter film, a replica of Kurt Russell's wardrobe tank top, and four enamel pins, including Lo Pan with light-up eyes. 

Paradise lost? Fright-Rags found it in the Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon collection. It includes four shirts from the meta-slasher, including one that pays homage to Friday the 13th, along with a pair of socks and a flip-open Leslie Vernon enamel pin.

Bunnyman : Grindhouse Edition

Director Carl Lindbergh is set to re-release the original Bunnyman film. Originally released in 2011, ANOC productions is unleashing the ultimate version of the film via Amazon on April 19th 2019.

The “NEW” Director’s Cut is titled "Bunnyman : Grindhouse Edition" and will feature never-before-seen footage! The film has also been re-edited, to show Lindbergh’s truest vision of the film. The film’s release it timed specifically for Easter !

This is director Carl Lindbergh’s true vision of the film. He says of this remake/directors cut: “What initially started as a simple idea of doing a director's cut of the film, evolved into a full remake of the film. The original Bunnyman was completely recut with approx. 50% of the film being new footage (incorporating deleted scenes, new VFX etc.), and the score was completely redone.

These changes go way beyond a simple directors cut, however it's not an entirely new film either. When revisiting the film, we realized there was much more we could fix then initially anticipated. These changes make Bunnyman : Grindhouse Edition the definitive version of the original Bunnyman film. The film was remade in the spirit of Grindhouse/Exploitation films of the 1970’s.” 

 "Bunnyman : Grindhouse Edition" will be available on from April 19th.

A killer is stalking the friends and family of a prominent Swiss diplomat in Dublin, Ireland in Riccardo Freda's unique Giallo thriller THE IGUANA WITH THE TONGUE OF FIRE, which comes to UK Blu-Ray this month from Arrow films.

Set in Ireland, when the dead body of a young woman is discovered in the boot of a limousine, owned by Swiss diplomat Ambassador Sobiesky (Anton Diffring - Fareinheit 451, The Man Who can Cheat Death), the police are not convinced that he knew nothing about the victim.

As more mutilated bodies turn up, having been attacked by an acid throwing, razor wielding killer, who were all known to the ambassador, or his family and with the Ambassador refusing to cooperate and  hiding behind his diplomatic immunity. The police decide to use some unorthadox methods to investigate him.

Hiring a private detective, Norton (Luigi Pistilli - Your Vice is a Locked Room and I have the Only Key), a former police officer kicked off the force for beating a suspect to death, the police use him to get close to the family and see what he can turn up. But with more bodies piling up, will he be the next victim?

Certainly one of the more unusual Italian Giallo's I've reviewed, taking place in the Republic of Ireland for a change, rather than mainland Europe. THE IGUANA WITH THE TONGUE OF FIRE is never-the-less a good, solid, violent Italian murder-mystery

This release marks its UK Blu-Ray debut and comes packed with the following special features

English and Italian soundtracks - The film gives you the option to watch the film either with the English dubbed track, or its original Italian Soundtrack. If you select the latter, you also get the option of English subtitles and the film will play with it's Italian credits.

Audio commentary - Giallo connoisseurs Adrian J Smith, webmaster of the Horrorpedia wiki, and David Flint, Editor and Publisher of Reprobate magazine provide a running commentary track of the film.

Of Chamelians and Iguanas (21mins) - Cultural critic Richard Dyer discusses the film and it's impact on the Giallo genre. Considering Cipriani (25mins) - DJ and Soundtrack collector Lovely Jon gives discusses Stelvio Cipriani's soundtrack to this and some of his other films.

The Cutting Game (20mins) - An interview with assistant editor Bruno Michell discussing how he got into movies and his work on the film.

Red Queen of Hearts (20mins) - Actress Dagmar Lassander is interviewed, discussing her film career and her involvement in this.

Original trailers - the films original Italian and English language trailer are included.

Photo galleries - A collection of on-set still, promotional lobby cards, posters and promotional artwork are included which you scroll through using the skip button on your remote.

A nice selection of extras, but most will probably only appeal to die hard Giallo fans being largely comprised of critics giving their two-penneth on what they liked about the film. Though due to the film's age it was probably hard to track down any surviving members of the production. The interview with Dagmar Lassander was nice though and the commentary track with critics Flint and Smith was rather fun to listen to, which were both major plus points and I also liked the option of being able to watch the film in either English or Italian with the respective titles.

To summerise, if you enjoy Italian Giallos, you would well be advised to seek this one out, boasting plenty of violence, blood, female nudity and more red-herrings than you can shake a stick at, that will keep fans of Italian cinema very happy.

DEVIL HUNTER - UK Blu-Ray review

Italian horror film regular Al Cliver gets to battle ruthless kidnappers, savage natives and a rather unconvincing demon on a remote tropical Island in Jess Franco's DEVIL HUNTER which makes it's UK Blu-Ray debut this month from 88 Films.

A group of kidnappers abduct a wealthy glamour model whilst visiting South America and take her to a remote island (actually a forest in Spain), where they demand a huge ransom from her agent. 

Notwithstanding, the agent instead hires a former vietnam vet, played by Al Cliver (The Beyond, Zombie Flesh Eaters), to go in and get her back.

Unfortunately, he ends up not only battling the gangsters, as he attempts to rescue her, but also a savage tribe of rather dubious looking "natives". Many of which are white and have dodgy 70s hairstyles and moustaches. As well as a rather unconvincing "demon" that they worship, which is essentially a naked black man, with ping pong balls for eyes.

Once banned in the UK as a Video Nasty, though god knows why, DEVIL HUNTER is your typical Jess Franco pot boiler, which ranks right up with the likes of White Cannibal Queen in terms of "production values".

This is the first time the film has been released to Blu-Ray in the UK and picture quality is a vast improvement over the previous DVD release from Severin films, which was way too dark. Indeed, this version is so polished, you can clearly see the pimples on the native women's backsides (no SERIOUSLY) though that's not to say the picture is faultless. With some scenes boasting excessive grain and are overly soft, though this was undoubtedly a problem with the original elements.

Also, the English audio seemed overly loud on this and had to drasticly turn down the volume on my TV to avoid being blasted accross the room. However it seems this was also a problem on the old Severin DVD, so is obviously something to do with the original audio. However it seems like a missed opportunity not to try and correct this for this release.

It should also be noted that the previous Severin disc had a couple of extra scenes with the kidnappers, which were not on earlier English language releases. However these were in Spanish language only. These scenes, which occur around the 1hr 10m mark, are also included in this release. BUT there are no English subtitles. Whilst the disc does contain English subs for the hard of hearing, switching the sub-title track on for these scenes simply displays the caption "[Speaks Foreign Language]", which is a bit of a poor show.

As for extras, those who own the previous Severin disc may remember that included an Interview with the director. That has not been included here, instead we get a 50minute documentary entitled "Franco-Philes", in which film journalist John Martin, Sitges Film Festival organiser Mike Hostench; Fangoria editor and writer Tony Timpone and many others examine the maverick career of Director Jess Franco,

To summarise, this release is a vast improvement picture wise over previous releases, but is really only one for Jess Franco fans, or Video Nasty collectors as I doubt mainstream movie fans will appreciate Franco's "unique" style of film making.

Brian Skiba’s comedic horror, ROTTENTAIL hops into US cinemas April 12

Award-winning filmmaker Brian Skiba is set to premiere his new hilarious Easter nightmare, Rottentail this month in Los Angeles. Opening theatrically in the US on April 12, the film, Movie Critical has called “the bloody, funniest movie this Easter”, will have its red carpet premiere on April 11, 2019, at Hollywood’s Raleigh Studios.

Rottentail tells the bizarre tale of young Peter Cotton, who grew up in the town of Easter Falls and loves rabbits. Peter’s Science project on rabbit breeding is ruined when the school bullies beat up, and actually kill, his rabbit. Years later, the kind but still shy Dr. Cotton works steadily and gently with his rabbits to cure human infertility. Unbeknownst to Peter, the military is perverting his work, developing fierce soldiers with strength far exceeding a human of their size, and with Peter’s fertility serum, the ability to breed in the field.

Peter discovers the true nature of the experiment and attempts to stop it. But in an accident of poetic justice, a bite from an experimental mutant rabbit combines with Peter’s own serum to transform him into the evil Rottentail. This creature heads to Easter Falls to exact revenge on the wrongdoings of his youth and to finally lay claim to the love of his life... and his timing could not be better, since Easter Falls’ biggest day of the year is coming and the entire town will be there to watch the Annual Easter Parade. 

Starring Corin Nemec (Stargate SG-1, Supernatural), William McNamara (Copycat, Stealing Home), Dominique Swain (Lolita, Face/Off), Laurie Love (.357, Beverly Hills Christmas) and Byron Browne (Who Else To Blame?, Periphery), Rottentail is the 2011 Arizona Filmmaker of the Year’s latest and most ambitious venture yet in his career which boasts 18 directing credits and numerous credits in producing, writing, editing, and visual effects.

Brian Skiba will be in attendance at the Los Angeles premiere of Rottentail and will walk the red carpet along with cast and crew from the film including Peter Rottentail himself, Corin Nemec, Dominique Swain and Gianni Capaldi.
