Venom (1971) (aka The Legend Of Spider Forest) Available December 14

A demented grab-bag of sinister cinematic tropes set in the picturesque Bavarian countryside, Venom (1971, aka The Legend of Spider Forest) spins a wicked web complete with a winsome seductress (Neda Arneric) who lures curious young men to a nasty death, all in the shadow of a Nazi-styled scientist (Terence Soall) aiming to craft an arachnid-derived nerve drug. Meanwhile, an unsavory brood of conspiratorial locals is keen on maintaining the mythos of the lethal “spider goddess,” while an undaunted artist (Simon Brent) perilously investigates. Director Peter Sykes here takes a first evocative leap into screen horror that would bear more frightful fruit with the later Hammer Studios productions Demons of the Mind (1972) and To the Devil…a Daughter (1976).

STARRING: Simon Brent, Neda Arneric

Seven Deaths In The Cat’s Eyes (1973) (aka Corringa Or La Morte Negli Occhi Del Gatto) Available December 14

When a fractious aristocratic family gathers at an ancestral Scottish castle, a straight razor-wielding murderer is also an unwelcome guest in Seven Deaths in the Cat’s Eyes (1973, aka Corringa or La morte negli occhi del gatto), a blood-laced thriller – complete with giallo flourishes, tantalizing sexuality, a pet gorilla and an omnipresent ginger tabby – from genre filmmaker Antonio Margheriti (aka Anthony M. Dawson). Singer/actress Jane Birkin plays the willowy heroine whose arrival foreshadows several unnatural deaths, Hiram Keller is the possibly unhinged lord of the manor with a cursed history, and the ensemble includes schemers with homicidal tendencies, all underscored by the shudder-inducing music of the great Riz Ortolani.

Playdurizm (2020) Available December 14

First time filmmaker Gem Deger explodes on the film scene with this wildly colorful, dangerously sexy and dark-edged fantasy tale about a young man and the bizarre world he finds himself in. Demir (played by director Deger) suddenly wakes up with no memory of the past and in an unfamiliar apartment. Surrounded by balloons and an oinking pig, he scurries his way out only to be stopped by the hunky and handsome Andrew (Austin Chunn) who assures the teen that he actually lives there, with the hunk, his girlfriend and their pet pig. As he uncomfortably settles into this new reality, Demir quietly longs for his heterosexual roommate. He gets his chance when Andrew’s girlfriend Drew (Issy Stewart) ODs and they stash her body under the sofa. Demir now does everything he can to be possessed by this man, all the while ignoring the violent clues of how he got there. An intoxicating blend of fantasy, violence, passion and control.

STARRING: Gem Deger, Austin Chunn, Issy Stewart
