ASPHYX, THE (1973)

Blending elements of Gothic horror with the more contemporary ingredients of steampunk, The Asphyx has emerged from obscurity to become a cult favorite of the sci-fi/fantasy genre. Utilizing an experimental photographic device, a scientist (Robert Stephens, The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes) captures what appears to be the image of the Asphyx—the ancient Greek spirit of the dead. With the help of his adopted son (Robert Powell, The Italian Job), he conducts further experiments and conceives of a way to harness the Asphyx and thereby gain immortality. But, as every visionary scientist should know, defying the laws of the natural and spiritual world unleashes dreadful consequences. Sumptuously shot by director Peter Newbrook and cinematographer Freddie Young (Lawrence of Arabia), The Asphyx unfolds into one of the most unusual and haunting supernatural chillers of British cinema. This special edition also includes the extended 99-minute cut of film. (BLU-RAY)


Oscar-winners Vanessa Redgrave, Keith Carradine, and Rod Steiger star in this adaptation of the Carson McCullers novella and the Edward Albee play adapted from it. Merchant Ivory veteran Simon Callow’s only turn as a director is a twisted Southern Gothic dark comedy set in a small rural town in the deep South. Redgrave plays Miss Amelia, the eccentric proprietor of the town’s only cafe and, more importantly to her grip on the townsfolk, the proprietor of a secret moonshine still. Her domineering hold on the town is threatened when two strangers appear with a claim on her past. (BLU-RAY)


Bandh Darwaza is the Indian version of Dracula. A childless woman visits the lair of an evil magician in order that she may conceive.

From Juraj Herz, director of The Cremator and Morgiana, comes this singular adaption of the classic tale – an altogether darker interpretation than we’re used to. Light years from Disney, Herz’s Beauty and the Beast (also known more provocatively as The Virgin and the Monster) follows the familiar story – innocent girl presents herself as sacrifice to a cursed man-beast hiding in exile, and learns to live with, and eventually love her captor – but is transformed into something entirely more twisted and terrifying in Herz’s macabre re-imagining. (BLU-RAY)


The theory of evolution has never been so zanily tested as it is in Bedtime for Bonzo starring future American President, Ronald Reagan (Desperate Journey). When Professor Peter Boyd (Reagan) proposes to the Dean’s daughter, there’s only one problem: her father. In an attempt to win his approval, he adopts a chimpanzee and sets out to prove “right and wrong” is learned, not inherited. He hires a beautiful young nursemaid to mother Bonzo, but will his fiancée believe it’s all just in the name of science? This hilarious romp proves some people will do anything for love. Film and TV veteran Frederick de Cordova (Buccaneer’s Girl) directs a fine cast that includes Diana Lynn (The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek), Walter Slezak (Lifeboat), Jesse White (Francis Goes to the Races) and Peggy the Chimp as the scene-stealing simian. (BLU-RAY)


Behind the High Wall is a remake of the 1937 Jackie Cooper-Victor McLaglen film The Big Guy. Tom Tully plays prison warden Frank Carmichael, who is kidnapped during a jail break in which a policeman is killed. In an ensuing car crash, all the escapees are killed except young Johnny Hutchins (John Gavin). Though he knows that Hutchins had nothing to do with the cop’s murder, Carmichael refuses to intervene when Johnny is condemned to death. It seems that the escaping convicts had been carrying $100,000 in stolen money with them, which Carmichael has hidden away for his own use. By eliminating Hutchins, the warden is also getting rid of the only potential witness to his own perfidy. Sylvia Sidney is pure venom as Carmichael’s crippled, greedy wife, while Betty Lynn (who later played Thelma Lou on The Andy Griffith Show) also registers well as Johnny’s agonizing fiancee. Directed by Abner Biberman.(BLU-RAY)


Bleeding Audio details the rollercoaster career of the Oakland pop punk band The Matches. Like many acts in the early 2000s, they were set to be the next big thing. After building a tight- knit music community in the Bay Area, The Matches broke out and became an internationally touring act. An eclectic group of artistic weirdos, the band grew a thriving cult fanbase worldwide, yet remained virtually penniless. Their story overlaps with the drastic changes of the music industry since the takeover of the digital revolution— from declining sales, to excessive touring, to illegal downloading and streaming. With interviews from some of music’s biggest names like Mark Hoppus (Blink 182), Nick Hexum (311) and Tom Higgenson (Plain White T’s), Bay Area filmmaker Chelsea Christer’s uplifting tribute tracks The Matches’ history and recent reunion to dig deeper into the challenges the average musician faces in the digital age of the industry—and the community that keeps our artists alive. (BLU-RAY)


When Japanese New Wave bad boy Seijun Suzuki delivered this brutal, hilarious, and visually inspired masterpiece to the executives at his studio, he was promptly fired. Branded to Kill (Koroshi no rakuin) tells the ecstatically bent story of a yakuza assassin with a fetish for sniffing steamed rice (the chipmunk-cheeked superstar Joe Shishido) who botches a job and ends up a target himself. This is Suzuki at his most extreme—the flabbergasting pinnacle of his sixties pop-art aesthetic. (BLU-RAY + 4KULTRAHD)


Vojtěch Jasný’s sumptuous, surreal satire is one of the most visually inventive and uninhibited films of the Czechoslovak New Wave.

Part modern fairy tale, part colourful political metaphor, The Cassandra Cat (also known as When the Cat Comes) is a unique, glorious comic fantasy. (BLU-RAY)

When Golden Harvest first released Hand of Death in 1976, no-one paid much attention to the names of writer/director Wu Yu-sheng, third-billed actor Chen Yuen-lung or fight choreographer Hung Chin-pao in the opening credits.
