Rosa Leigh (2018) (Directed by Christopher Maggard)

 

  • DVD
  • PRINCIPAL CAST: Santiago Cirilo, Jessica York, Joe Kidd, Eric Pasith, Sophia Medley
  • SYNOPSIS: Sixty years ago an unimaginable tragedy struck the Ruth Lee Elementary School when a little girl named Rosa Leigh was killed along with her teacher and the school’s janitor. Now, four paranormal investigators seek to debunk the claims which surround the abandoned school. However, they inadvertently release the darkness which dwells within the school. The story of ROSA LEIGH is based on actual events with the death of a young girl who fell from the school’s top floor to the basement. The real, Poasttown Elementary School, is considered one of the most haunted places in the state of Ohio. It is also a popular place for paranormal investigators to visit and the school offers ghost tours. During the filming of the movie several of the cast and crew reported paranormal experiences; including moving shadows where there were no people, being touched on the back when no one was there, capturing voices on production audio, and doors opening and closing by themselves.

Ever After (2018) (Directed by Carolina Hellsgard)

AKA: Endzeit

 

  • DVD/Blu-ray
  • PRINCIPAL CAST: Gro Swantje Kohlhof, Maja Lehrer
  • SYNOPSIS: Carolina Hellsgard’s chilling second feature follows two women fighting for their lives in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by zombies — a future Hellsgard presents as both horrific and hopeful. With women in every major creative role, ENDZEIT is a different kind of zombie movie. Set during a terrifying near-future zombie apocalypse, Carolina Hellsgard’s sophomore feature is chilling and doomladen, but it’s also a transfixing, gorgeous, and unusually intimate sort-of road movie — in which humanity has come to its end and nature is reclaiming its terrain. A plague has swept the world. Weimar and Jura, the only surviving cities, have very different approaches to the epidemic. In Weimar, Vivi (Gro Swantje Kohlhof) — vulnerable and numb as a result of apocalypse- triggered tragedies — reluctantly volunteers at the city’s perimeter. It is at the ramshackle outer fences, requiring constant defense from attacks by infectious cannibal revenants, that she meets Eva (Maja Lehrer) — whose icy stoicism makes a striking contrast to Vivi’s delicate fragility. Following an attack at their post, they board an automated supply train bound for Jena, whose more humane approach to the victims of the epidemic offers some hope for the future. When the train unexpectedly breaks down, Vivi and Eva are left to fend for themselves in a countryside teeming with dangers and marvels they never dreamed of.

Wicked World (1991) (Directed by Barry J. Gillis)

 

  • 2-Disc Blu-ray + DVD Special Edition
  • PRINCIPAL CAST: Eddie Platt, Barry J. Gillis, Maria Delgado
  • SYNOPSIS:
  • Total horror anarchy from the makers of THINGS!
  • In 1989, filmmaker Barry J. Gillis and friends renewed the world’s faith in Canada with the horror brain bomb known as THINGS. But that was only the beginning. Virtually unseen until now, WICKED WORLD is not only Gillis’ 1991 follow-up to THINGS–it’s also a new form of genre anarchy. Grant Ekland (Gillis) is a cop who is haunted by the death of his girlfriend at the hands of a psychotic slasher named Harold. When Harold is released from an asylum, there’s only one option for Ekland: revenge! Filled with metal riffage, gnarly ultra-violence, and experimental techniques, WICKED WORLD feels like what would happen if Salvador Dali injected acid directly into his brain while staring at a Cannibal Corpse LP cover. This is a highly personal treatise on the toxicity of society from one of the most singular filmmakers in trash-horror history. If you survive WICKED WORLD, you’ll never forget it. Please note that WICKED WORLD was shot on 16mm film and edited on tape. This transfer is taken from the original 3/4″master tapes.
  • SPECIAL FEATURES
  • New transfer of the original cut from the 3/4 master tapes!
