Killer Party (1986) Available October 26

YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED TO A PARTY TO DIE FOR!

It’s April Fool’s Day and the sisters of Sigma Alpha Pi believe they’ve found the perfect place to throw a party: the abandoned fraternity house where a guillotined pledge once lost his head in a hazing gone awry. But shortly after their revelry begins, the student body count starts to rise as the vengeful pledge returns from the grave and makes it a party to die for. Featuring appearances by Paul Bartel (Death Race 2000, Chopping Mall) and Martin Hewitt (Endless Love, Alien Predators) and the debut of Joanna Johnson (who would graduate a year later to her longtime best-known role on The Bold And The Beautiful), Killer Party was written by Barney Cohen (Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter) and directed by William Fruet (The House By The Lake, Spasms, Funeral Home).

STARRING: Martin Hewitt, Ralph Seymour, Elaine Wilkes

Frankenstein’s Daughter (1958) Available October 26

Frankenstein’s Daughter (1958) Available October 26

”Look at her! She lives!”

So says Dr. Oliver Frank at the sight of his new creation, a hulking beast with the transplanted brain of a beautiful young woman. He has finally carried on the legacy of his late grandfather, the notorious Dr. Frankenstein!

The twist in Frankenstein’s Daughter (1958) is that it takes place in ”modern” Los Angeles, where teenagers are forever in swim gear. Even as news reports warn them about a female monster menacing the neighborhood, nothing stops these kids from partying by the poolside.

Fans of low-budget horror will see some familiar faces in the cast, including John Ashley, Harold Lloyd, Jr., and former Playboy Playmate of the Month, Sally Todd (just a year after her appearance in The Unearthly). For Director Richard E. Cunha, Frankenstein’s Daughter was part of a productive year where he turned out three other cult favorites: She Demons; Giant from the Unknown; and Missile to the Moon. And though Donald Murphy lacked the schlock pedigree of his director and co-stars, his thousand-watt stare makes him a perfectly evil Dr. Frank.

STARRING: John Ashley, Harold Lloyd Jr., Sally Todd

Franco Noir Available October 26

Franco Noir Available October 26

Following his international breakthrough with the awful dr. Orloff, director Jess Franco next delivered a startling pair of crime-thrillers that pistol-whipped European notions of film noir while lighting the fuse on Uncle Jess’ own insane aesthetic. Set in New Orleans and based on a novel by the authors of Vertigo, Death Whistles The Blues is a hard-boiled tale of betrayal, violence and revenge featuring smoky jazz compositions by Franco himself. Jean Servais of RIFIFI fame stars in Rififi In The City, a nihilistic trip through a pulp underworld of thugs, snitches, nightclub dames and black-gloved giallo-style murders. Both films – which led an impressed Orson Welles to hire Franco as his assistant on Chimes At Midnight – now feature HD scans from the original negatives for the first time ever. Bonus features include: Franco Noir ― Interview With Stephen Thrower, Author Of “Murderous Passions: The Delirious Cinema Of Jesús Franco”

STARRING: Various
