Manhattan Baby on Blu-ray from Blue Underground

The Surreal Horror Shocker From the Director of ZOMBIE and THE BEYOND

A young girl on vacation in Egypt is given a mysterious charm, causing her archeologist father to be struck blind inside an unexplored pyramid tomb. But when the family returns home to Manhattan, a plague of supernatural evil and sudden violence follows. Can this ancient curse be stopped before it is unleashed on the streets of New York City?

KILLER THRILLERS COLLECTION Coming Blue Underground

KillerThrillersCollection_BD_keyart4c

BABA YAGA:

Legendary sex symbol Carroll Baker stars as a mysterious sorceress with an undying hunger for sensual ecstasy and unspeakable torture. But when she casts a spell over a beautiful young fashion photographer (the gorgeous Isabelle De Funès), Milan’s most luscious models are sucked into a nightmare world of lesbian seduction and shocking sadism. Are these carnal crimes the result of one woman’s forbidden fantasies or is this the depraved curse of the devil witch known as BABA YAGA?

 

NIGHT TRAIN MURDERS:

It was released as SECOND HOUSE ON THE LEFT, NEW HOUSE ON THE LEFT, and TORTURE TRAIN. The ads screamed, “Most movies last less than two hours! This is one of everlasting torment!” It remains one of the most graphically fiendish films in exploitation history, the story of two teenage girls traveling through Europe, forced into a nightmare of sexual assault and sadistic violence.

 

STRIP NUDE FOR YOUR KILLER:

The stunning Edwige Fenech stars in this infamous shocker that packs more grisly violence and sexual depravity into each frame than most any other film in the entire giallo genre. There’s succulent flesh aplenty as a mysterious killer dressed in black leather and wearing a motorcycle helmet begins butchering beautiful young fashion models with no mercy and one deranged request: STRIP NUDE FOR YOUR KILLER!

GetMean_2DiscLtdEd_keyart4c

The Stranger’s Thrilling Final Adventure!

When an American cowboy stumbles upon a gypsy family in a wind-swept ghost town, they offer him a fortune to escort a princess back to her home in Spain. But this silent Stranger finds himself in over his head (and strung up by his feet) when he gets caught in the middle of an epic battle involving Vikings, the Moors, brutal barbarians, evil spirits, a raging bull, and a diabolical Shakespeare-quoting hunchback. Tired of their never-ending attempts to kill him, the cowboy arms himself to the teeth with guns, dynamite and a special surprise. Now it’s the Stranger’s turn to GET MEAN!

This week we have a jam packed show for you. We start off with Vincent Dawn a.k.a. Bruno Mattei’s Mondo Cannibal from Intervision/Severin Films, we then dive into Blue Undergrounds newest blu-ray release of Larry Cohen’s God Told Me To! We get a bit side tracked as per usual, but we jump into one of the goriest love stories ever made, Jorg Buttrereit’s Nekromantik 2 (The Return of the Loving Dead) on blu-ray from Cult Epics and since it’s been looking like Christmas outside every where with all this damn snow everyone has been getting I decided why don’t we just take a peak at the blu-ray release of Christmas Evil (You Better Watch Out) from our pals at Vinegar Syndrome! It’s a fun episode and Chuck pushes me to the boiling point, I hope you all enjoy it.
