Leave out your suntan lotion, we're off to Nightmare Beach

Nightmare Beach blu-ray cover

On October 22nd comes Rome-based bloodshed in the shape of Umberto Lenzi's legendary and never-before-available slice and dicer Nightmare Beach!

As any self-respecting horror-hound will know, Lenzi gave audiences some of the most notorious video nasties including his legendary gut-crunchers The Man From Deep River (1972) and Cannibal Ferox (1981). However, the maestro of macabre, stomach-churning images was rightly most proud of his giallo classics - most famously represented by the colourful intrigue of Spasmo (1974) and the gruelling gore of Eyeball (1975).

For Nightmare Beach, released in 1988, Lenzi would claim that a troubled production...

Two Evil Eyes Blu-ray cover

88 Films are giving another genre classic the special treatment on the 15th October, Two Evil Eyes (1990), the second collaboration (following the classic Dawn of the Dead) for directors Dario Argento (Suspiria) and the late, great George Romero (Creepshow).

This time around, the totemic twosome chose to adapt a story from the eerie oeuvre of Edgar Allan Poe. Make no mistake: the end result brings together the very best of the United States independent sector with the kingpin of things giallo - with Romero taking on the subtle chills of 'The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar' and Argento facing the claws and paws of 'The Black Cat'!

Park Circus is d be bringing The Evil Dead back to the big screen at selected cinemas across the UK this Halloween, in proud partnership with Sony Pictures Releasing.

Five friends travel to a cabin in the woods, where they unknowingly release flesh-possessing demons. Raimi's seminal horror made a cult icon of Bruce Campbell and turned its director into hot property. Much imitated, The Evil Dead was the birth of an independently-spirited, viscerally-minded new wave in low budget horror cinema.

The Evil Dead will be screening at selected cinemas from 31 October across the UK, including Cineworld, BFI Southbank, Tyneside Cinema, HOME Manchester and in selected internat...
