The Fly Synopsis

Experimental scientist Andre Delambre (David Hedison) attempts to transfer matter through a space, using himself as the test subject. But things go horrifically wrong when a house fly buzzes into the machine, resulting in two grotesque man-fly hybrids…one of them being Andre! Now with the head of a fly and a wing in place of one of his arms, Andre, desperately hopes that he, his wife Helene (Patricia Owens) and his brother Francois (Vincent Price) can capture the other mutant – the human-headed, one-armed fly – in hopes of reversing the experiment!

The Return Of The Fly Synopsis

Despite warnings from his uncle Francois (Vincent Price), the young scientist Philippe Delambre (Brett Halsey) is determined to reattempt his late father’s teleportation experiments with the help of his assistant Ronald (David Frankham). But Ronald schemes against Philippe and turns him into the same horrifying man-fly creature that his father had become…and with the same disastrous fate! Once again, it is up to Francois to try and make things right!

The Curse Of The Fly Synopsis

The Delambre family curse continues in the terrifying third and final chapter, The Curse of the Fly! Filled with “disorienting suspense” (Scarlet Street) and gruesome special effects, it’s a horrific tale of science gone mad!

After escaping from a mental institution, Patricia Stanley (Carole Gray) is rescued by scientist Martin Delambre (George Baker), the grandson of the doomed teleportation experimenter Andre Delambre. The two fall in love and marry, but Patricia quickly realizes her new husband’s science experiments are as horrific as his family’s past. As she investigates further, Patricia learns the unnerving secrets of the Delambre family and has to find a way to escape them before she becomes the next human-insect hybrid!

The Abominable Dr. Phibes Synopsis

Meet Doctor Phibes: a one-time concert musician who’s now an all-time crazed murderer. In this clever, crypt-kicking classic, horrormeister Vincent Price plays a diabolical doc seeking the ultimate in revenge with precision creepiness and surgical wit. Watch Dr. Phibes live up to his promise: “Nine killed her, nine shall die, nine eternities in doom!”

After a team of surgeons botch his beloved wife’s surgery, leaving her for dead, the emotionally distraught Dr. Phibes creatively concocts a fatal prescription for revenge. Using the Good Book as his guide, Phibes unleashes a score of old testament atrocities – from a plague of locusts to an attack of rats -- on his enemies that climax in what may be one of “the eeriest endings on screen record” (Syracuse Herald-Journal)!

Dr. Phibes Rises Again Synopsis

The eminent Dr. Phibes awakens from a decade of suspended animation and heads to Egypt with his mute aide-de-camp Vulnavia and the corpse of his dead wife. To resurrect his spouse, Phibes gets up to his usual, diabolical tricks: cleverly murdering people in strange and heinous ways to invoke a magical incantation. But once he is in the tomb of the dead Pharaohs, the good doctor uncovers that his pursuit of an after-life may be foiled by his nemesis who wants to end the reign of this sadistic surgeon of gore.

Theater Of Blood Synopsis

Vincent Price delivers a thrilling “tour-de-force” performance (Variety) as a small-time actor plotting big-time revenge! Boasting a top notch supporting cast, this dramatically “delicious concoction” (New York Magazine) is an “equal mixture of horror, comedy and Shakespeare [that’ll] please just about everyone -- critics included” (Boxoffice)!

After years of suffering deadly reviews, hammy Shakespearean actor Edward Lionheart (Price) decides it’s curtains for his critics! Bumping off his detractors with executions inspired by the Bard, Lionheart stages a beheading after the manner of “Cymbeline,” a stabbing inspired by “Julius Caesar,” and even an untimely removal of a pound of flesh improvised from “The Merchant of Venice” -- proving once and for all, that all the world really is a stage…for MURDER!

Madhouse Synopsis

Madhouse Masters of macabre Vincent Price, Peter Cushing and Robert Quarry give performances to die for in this “diverting little chiller” (Boxoffice)! When horror star Paul Toombes’ fiancée is brutally killed, he loses more than this job he loses his mind. But twelve years later, when he returns to TV – only to discover a fresh batch of corpses – Paul finally begins to understand that melodrama can be murder on your career!

Tales Of Terror /Twice Told Tale Synopsis

This triple treat of terror is a three-episode treat dripping with murder, necrophilia, dementia, live burials, zombies and the terrifying performances of some of horror’s greatest spooks – Vincent Price, Peter Lorre and Basil Rathbone – resulting in nothing less than “juicy entertainment” and “spine-chilling cinema” (Cue)!

Witchfinder General Synopsis

“Vincent Price proves once again that he is still the greatest ghoul going” (Motion Picture Herald) in this Edgar Allen Poe thriller about a witch hunter who finds career satisfaction touring the English countryside torturing hapless victims and putting innocent people to death in the name of purifying souls. It’s a tale of “love, villainy and retribution” (Film Daily) and a “sadist’s delight” (Los Angeles Times) for those who love historical bloodfests.

As superstition and spells sweep the middle ages, an educated rogue named Hopkins (Price) wanders from town to town proclaiming to be an official witch finder. Town leaders pay him to accuse and then execute – usually innocent – suspects. But when a brave soldier returns home to find his sweetheart on the rack, ready to burn, Hopkins realizes he may have whacked his last witch.

Eight Films From One Of The Most Influential Directors In Modern American Cinema Arrive In A Collectible Box Set September 18

LOS ANGELES, CA – Before “Grindhouse” theaters opened their doors, Roger Corman was making movies. A filmmaker who is responsible for giving many of Hollywood’s top directors their first big break including Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather), Martin Scorsese (The Departed),
Ron Howard (The DaVinci Code), James Cameron (Titanic), Peter Bogdanovich
(The Last Picture Show) and Joe Dante (Gremlins); Corman’s prolific career of making low-budget, yet wildly entertaining exploitation films cemented his place in film history.
MGM Home Entertainment celebrates his legendary career with an anthology of his very best work with The Roger Corman Collection, coming to DVD September 18.

Featuring eight films on four discs, the box set includes Peter Fonda (Ghost Rider, Easy Rider) and Bruce Dern (The Astronaut Farmer, Diggstown) in the motorcycle thriller The Wild Angels, the artsy horror story A Bucket Of Blood, the apocalyptic Gas-s-s-s, the Edgar Allan Poe tale Premature Burial, the science-fiction classic X: The Man With X-Ray Eyes and the acid-fueled tale written by Jack Nicholson (The Departed, As Good As It Gets); The Trip. Additionally, the collection offers two Corman classics never before available on DVD – Shelly Winters (The Poseidon Adventure, The Diary of Anne Frank) and Robert DeNiro (Raging Bull) in the psychological gangster film Bloody Mama and the grand prix action spectacular The Young Racers. The Roger Corman Collection is available for the suggested retail price of $39.98 U.S. / $45.98 Canada. Prebook is August 15, 2007.


Bloody Mama

Shelley Winters, Robert DeNiro and Bruce Dern take on the Great Depression the only way they know how in this explosive saga based on the lives of the Ma Barker Gang!

A Bucket of Blood

In a jumpin' java joint, filled to the brim with kooky beatniks, poets and hipsters, an artist wannabe discovers he has a talent for modern art...and murder. Dripping with blood, social satire and "sick, sick comedy," this film, according to critic Leonard Maltin, "nicely captures the spirit of the beatnik era" and zips along with vibes of counterculture creepiness. Walter (Dick Miller) is a busboy overly impressed with the cool cats who hang out at The Yellow Door coffee house, and he wonders how to become "hip." When he accidentally kills his landlady's pet cat, Walter panics and covers it with clay. His prayers are answered, and before he knows it, he's the "cat's meow" of the art world. His talent develops and - surprise! - he can sculpt humans the same way too. Like so many artists, his real talent won't be discovered - until he's dead.


Anarchy goes airborne when a deadly gas kills everyone over 25 and the world devolves into a chaotic – and zany – struggle for power.

The Trip

Written by Jack Nicholson, The Trip takes you to a whole new world of extreme beauty and sheer terror…on a passport the size of a stamp!

The Premature Burial

The obsessive fear of being buried alive compels a medical student to build himself a tomb with a view, equipped with everything he can think of to escape death.

X: The Man with X-Ray Eyes

A “fantastic” (Los Angeles Times) tale of heart-pounding suspense, this “harrowing [and] terrifying” (Boxoffice) sci-fi shocker “will fascinate horror film fans” (The Hollywood Reporter).

The Young Racers

An ex-racing champion gets back in the driver’s seat to take on the current champ in a match with a climax so explosive, it has to be seen to be believed.

The Wild Angeles

Grab your chick, hop on your Harley and fly with this “sociological shocker [from the] cut-rate master of the macabre” (Time) starring Peter Fonda, Nancy Sinatra, Bruce Dern and Diane Ladd.

Two Gory Horror Masterpieces Arrive On DVD

September 11 From MGM Home Entertainment

LOS ANGELES, CA – Two iconic splatter classics that were pioneers in the horror genre make their way to DVD when From Beyond Unrated and The Return Of The Living Dead Collector’s Edition arrive on September 11 from MGM Home Entertainment. Just in time for Halloween, these 80s cult classics represent some of the most dark and original content created and started a new trend in black comedy. Based on the short story of the same name by legendary writer H.P. Lovecraft, comes a science-fiction experiment gone horribly wrong in From Beyond. Starring horror legend Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator, The Frighteners) and shot by cult director Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator, Dolls), From Beyond Unrated is available for the first time on DVD and includes all new featurettes, a photomontage and the original Director’s Unrated Cut.

Writer/director Dan O’Bannon (Alien, Lifeforce) puts a hilarious spin on the zombie movie with The Return Of The Living Dead. Considered one of the most bizarre yet incredibly funny horror films in its time, The Return Of The Living Dead helped launch the career of scream queen Linnea Quigley (Sorority Babes In The Slime Ball Bowl-O-Rama, Vice Academy) and is a true punk rock zombie comedy. The Collector’s Edition DVD comes in collectible glow in the dark packaging and features audio commentary from cast, crew and the undead, behind-the-scenes featurettes, an 80s horror film retrospective hosted by the mistress of the night herself, Elvira and of course, zombie subtitles.

Both From Beyond Unrated and The Return Of The Living Dead Collector’s Edition are available for the suggested retail price of $19.98 U.S. / $25.98 Canada. Prebook is August 15, 2007.


From Beyond Unrated

H.P. Lovecraft’s classic tale of suspense became “a grisly amalgam of sex, shock and satire” (Newsweek) in the hands of the creators of Re-animator. And now, armed with shocking never-before-seen footage and special features and on DVD for the first time, this “bloody good entertainment” (Time) has evolved into one of the most gruesomely riveting film experiences of all time! The Resonator, a powerful machine that can control the sixth sense, has killed its creator and sent his associate into an insane asylum. But when a beautiful psychiatrist becomes determined to continue the experiment, she unwittingly opens the door to a hostile parallel universe…and to the deviant behavior within the human psyche. With its victims becoming creatures who feed on – and become aroused by – human brains, the Resonator is the ultimate man-made monster. And now something’s gone horribly wrong and no one can turn it off!

The Return Of The Living Dead Collector’s Edition

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the cemetery, those brain-eating zombies are back and hungry for more tasty mortals. A fiendish mix of outrageous humor and heart-stopping terror, The Return of the Living Dead is a veritable smorgasbord of fun (LA Herald-Examiner) filled with skin-crawling jolts, eye-popping visuals and relentless surprise! On his first day on the job at an army surplus store, poor Freddy unwittingly releases nerve gas from a secret U.S. military canister, unleashing an unbelievable terror. The gas re-animates a corps of corpses, who arise from their graves with a ravenous hunger for human brains! And luckily for those carnivorous cadavers, there is a group of partying teens nearby, just waiting to be eaten!
