Cult Classic HORRORS OF THE BLACK MUSEUM - on Blu-ray and Digital Next Year!

A new restoration of the 1959 horror film on Blu-ray and DVD, and making its UK Digital debut, HORRORS OF THE BLACK MUSEUM, starring Michael Gough and directed by Arthur Crabtree (Fiend Without a Face), marked the first film in the “Sadian Trilogy”, followed by the Hammer favourite Circus of Horrors and Michael Powell’s infamous Peeping Tom - introducing cinema audiences to a more shocking and salacious brand of onscreen horror.

A series of grisly, macabre murders sweep London and leave Scotland Yard completely baffled. Bancroft, an evil crime journalist, is hypnotising his assistant to commit murders using items curated in his own personal “Black Museum” - inspired by the infamous real-life collection of weapons and torture instruments used by criminals. Using these murders to fuel his own crime stories, Bancroft delights in the Yard’s embarrassment.

Experience fear beyond belief in this gruesome British horror treat that features a splendid lead performance from the estimable Michael Gough (star of horror gems including Trog, Horror Hospital and The Skull), with a cast that also includes Shirley Anne Field (The Damned, Peeping Tom) and June Cunningham (The Small World of Sammy Lee).

Originally shown in the new filmmaking format ‘Hypno-Vista’ (‘It actually puts YOU in the picture - can you stand it?’), HORRORS OF THE BLACK MUSEUM was a box office hit, and can count Martin Scorsese among its fans - the director got the film inducted to the New York Museum of Modern Art.

HORRORS OF THE BLACK MUSEUM is available to buy on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital from 15th January 2024, and available to pre-order now.

Andy Edwards’ seaside slasher packs a PUNCH as the petrifying puppet is brought to life to terrorise the tourists and the locals of Hastings in this wickedly wacky new feature that’s been dubbed ‘one of the best slasher flicks to come along since Terrifier’ by GBV Reviews.

There’s no clowning around as Mr Punch stalks the seaside town – merrily battering with his baton to the sound of his maniacal laughter, causing death and devastation in his wake.

Ambitious student Frankie (Alina Allison – Cuttlefish) has returned to her hometown to visit her troubled Mum, Julia (Kierston Wareing – Fish Tank). But with her mum’s creepy new man, Elton (Jamie Lomas – The Wind That Shakes the Barley), on the scene, she can’t wait to leave the Kent coast for good and see the world.

Set for a final night of fun with her pals before she goes on her merry way, it’s party time… but a night of dancing quickly turns to gore galore and the young locals are about to get more than they bargained for when an old folk tale becomes all too real.

Mr Punch is on the prowl and the fearsome pulverising puppet won’t stop until he’s done his worst, but who is he, why is he creating chaos on the shores and could there be more sinister forces at work?

As the carnage escalates, can Frankie survive the brutal bashings and the twisted truth?

Cult British Sci-fi DEVIL GIRL FROM MARS - On UK Blu-ray, January

A new restoration of the 1954 British black-and-white science fiction film DEVIL GIRL FROM MARS, Directed by David MacDonald and starring Patricia Laffan, Hugh McDermott, Hazel Court, Peter Reynolds and Adrienne Corri comes to UK Disc and Digital, January.

One winter evening in a lonely Scottish inn, guests become prisoners when Nyah, a pitiless Martian with a robot minion, lands on earth and traps them within an invisible wall. With Martian males extinct after a battle of the sexes, Nyah aims to capture breeding stock on Earth. As escape attempts falter, the helpless humans must decide which one of them will die to save the others and possibly the world!

A famously economical film, Devil Girl From Mars was filmed over three weeks with no retakes in order to use up pre-booked studio time when another project finished ahead of schedule.

With a cast including the magnificent Patricia Laffan (Quo Vadis) as Nyah, and genre favourites Adrienne Corri (Vampire Circus), and fifties scream queen Hazel Court (The Masque of the Red Death), the film was shot by Jack E Cox (who filmed Hitchock’s The Lady Vanishes and Blackmail), with a score by prolific composer Edwin Astley, the man behind the catchy theme tunes to TV series The Saint and Danger Man.

Featuring the striking female Martian costume designed by Ronald Cobb, and a giant robot running amok, DEVIL GIRL FROM MARS is a bona fide cult classic that Starburst magazine says “is as iconic as they come”.


- BRAND NEW Interview with novelist and critic Kim Newman
- BRAND NEW Audio Commentary with Kim Newman and writer & journalist Barry Forshaw

DEVIL GIRL FROM MARS is available to buy on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital from 15th January 2024.

The spellbinding, gorgeously gothic series is exec-produced by Mark Johnson (El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie), Michelle Ashford (Operation Mincemeat) and Esta Spalding (Masters Of Sex) and marks the thrilling second instalment in AMC’s Immortal Universe franchise.
