Boardinghouse (1982) Available October 26

Nothing can prepare you for Boardinghouse. Jim (director John Wintergate), a psychic-gigolo who wears a leopard-print thong, rents a haunted house to “beautiful women with no ties.” From there, this unworldly slasher transforms into a sleazy, hallucinogenic maelstrom of gore, sex, chainsaws, pie fights, killer refrigerators, jacuzzis, beds that eat people, a new wave band called 33 and 1/3, and a leading lady known only as Kalassu. Boardinghouse is the first shot-on-video horror film to be blown up to 35mm and released theatrically. AGFA + Bleeding Skull! are thrilled to bring the 35mm theatrical cut to home video for the first time in this 2-disc set, which also includes Psycho Killer (a previously unreleased alternate home video cut) and SALLY & JESS (the previously unreleased “family film” from the makers of Boardinghouse).

STARRING: John Wintergate, K. Alassu, Lindsay Freeman

Beyond Darkness (1990) Available October 26

Shortly after completing TROLL 2, writer/director Claudio Fragasso and co-writer Rossella Drudi (Shocking Dark) returned to America to combine elements of The Exorcist, Poltergeist, The Beyond and their own insane aesthetic for what critics – and Fragasso/Drudi themselves – consider to be their horror masterpiece: When a Satanic child killer is executed, she transforms the new home of a young reverend and his family into a portal to Hell. Gene LeBrock (Metamorphosis), David Brandon (Caligula 2) and Michael Paul Stephenson (child star of Troll 2 and director of Best Worst Movie) star in this batsh*t crazy good time (EuroCult AV) shot by Joe D’Amato with costumes by Laura Gemser, an epic score by Carlo Maria Cordio (Night Killer) and released in Italy as Evil Dead 5, now featuring new interviews produced exclusively for this edition.

STARRING: Gene LeBrock, David Brandon, Barbara Bingham

In a remote corner of England’s Peak District, a mysterious skull is unearthed. But even weirder is that Lady Sylvia steals the skull for use in worshipping — very erotically — her pagan god, The White Worm, who hungers for the taste of virginal flesh.
