Humanoids from the Deep to rise on Blu-ray
Posted on Monday 26th April 2021
Humanoids from the Deep

Noyo's a sleepy little place, where nothing much happens. So why are people being attacked and killed by THINGS that come out of the water? The answer involves pollution and mutated sea life that's developed a taste for death. As the 'orrible humanoids lay siege to Noyo, it's up to the great Doug McClure (The Land That Time Forgot; Warlords of Atlantis), to put a stop to their murderous rampages.

Notorious for all the sex 'n' violence that producer Roger Corman insisted on adding against the director's wishes, Humanoids of the Deep is a monster movie for the Video Nasty age. A cheesy, sleazy classic, lovingly presented by 88Films.

Do you believe in Urban Legends?
Posted on Monday 26th April 2021
UrbanLegend3D_800x

Camp fire stories aren't real - are they? Someone thinks they are and, in Urban Legend, they pick on their victims using those apparently apocryphal yarns as a template. The killing continues in Urban Legends: Final Cut, with a new killer - and new inspirations. And if your nerves can handle it, Urban Legends: Bloody Mary places a fresh, terrifying, spin on some old, old tales.

Even better than listening to spooky old stories ("...the call is coming from INSIDE the house..."), these three films are modern slasher classics. 88Films present the complete Urban Legend trilogy on UK Blu-ray for the first time, completely uncut.
