The Devil Incarnate (Mondo Macabro, Blu-ray)

The action takes place in 16th century Spain. The Devil comes to earth to live as a mere mortal. Together with a human companion, Tomas, he travels, like Don Quixote, through the countryside and has a series of wild encounters with both men and women. On the way he acquires great wealth and even fathers a child. But too late he learns a terrible lesson about we devious humans.

Widely recognised as one of horror star Paul Naschy's very best films, THE DEVIL INCARNATE is bawdy, shocking, funny and thought provoking. In the spirit of THE DECAMERON or THE CANTERBURY TALES the film presents a parade of human types from the saintly to the downright mean and nasty. But who is worse… the Devil or Mankind? Created from a brand new 4k scan of the original negative, THE DEVIL INCARNATE makes its Blu-ray and US debut in an edition packed with exclusive extra features.

- Brand new 4k transfer from film negative
- Introduction to the film by Paul Naschy
- Exclusive interview with actor David Rocha
- Exclusive interviews with Sergio and Bruno Molina
- A tour of Paul Naschy's study and home
- Exclusive audio commentary by Troy Howarth

Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals: Limited Edition (Severin Films, Blu-ray)

In 1977, infamous filth auteur Joe D'Amato (BEYOND THE DARKNESS, ANTRHOPOPHAGUS) combined the insane extremes of eroticism and cannibalism for the most groin-grinding, gut-munching, gore-spewing EuroSleaze saga of them all. When journalist Emanuelle (the ever-luscious Laura Gemser of BLACK EMANUELLE fame) discovers evidence of an extinct cannibal tribe in a Manhattan mental hospital, her investigation will take her to the Amazon jungle for an orgy of carnage that SexGoreMutants calls " … feral, demented and nasty. And in exploitation terms, that's entertainment!"

Gabriele Tinti (EMANUELLE IN AMERICA), Monica Zanchi (SISTER EMANUELLE) and Donald O'Brien (DOCTOR BUTCHER, M.D.) co-star in "the flesh & fear masterpiece from the late great splatter genius" (DVD Beaver) released to '80s grindhouses as TRAP THEM AND KILL THEM and now scanned in 2k from original vault elements.

Enter the Devil: Limited Collector’s Edition (Massacre Video, Blu-ray)

Following the mysterious disappearances of several travelers in a rural part of southern Texas, a detective and a scientist from a nearby city are sent to investigate. Made to immediately feel unwanted by the locals, they soon discover the remains of one of the missing, but in doing so begin to sense that something sinister is afoot in the desolate community they've entered. Determined to uncover the truth, the duo quickly find themselves faced with an unimaginable evil; a terror linked to Satan himself!

Massacre Video proudly presents the Blu-ray debut of Frank Q. Dobbs' low budget regional chiller, ENTER THE DEVIL (aka DISCIPLE OF DEATH), newly restored from a recently discovered inter-negative.

Violence in a Women’s Prison (Severin Films, Blu-ray)

In an over-the-top career filled with cannibals, zombies, nuns and Nazis, only EuroSleaze maestro Bruno Mattei (THE OTHER HELL, SHOCKING DARK) - along with frequent collaborators/co-writers Claudio Fragasso and Rossella Drudi (TROLL 2, ZOMBIE 3 and 4) - could take the BLACK EMANUELLE series to such insane depths of depravity. When Emanuelle (the legendary Laura Gemser) goes undercover in a penitentiary, she will endure a nightmare of sadistic guards, voracious lesbians, rat attacks, feces fights and enough graphic mayhem for a dozen women-in-prison trash epics.

Gabriele Tinti (EMANUELLE AND THE LAST CANNIBALS), Lorraine De Selle (CANNIBAL FEROX) and Franca Stoppi (BEYOND THE DARKNESS) co-star in this "classic of exploitation" (Yell Magazine) - also known as CAGED WOMEN and EMANUELLE IN PRISON - now featuring a 2k scan from an uncensored inter-positive.
