So, get ready to enter the Fantastic Factory for a festival of gory mayhem and blood-splattered horror.
In Beyond Re-Animator, the evil Dr. Herbert West, a medical genius with an overwhelming drive to raise the dead, returns to the subjects he knows best: science and murder!
John Jaspers is driven to insanity in Faust: Love Of The Damned when he signs a pact with the devil in order to enact a horrible vengeance on the thugs who murdered his girlfriend. Transformed into a sickening beast, he stalks the night seeking only to maim and kill.
Alien spiders threaten the very existence of man in Arachnid and only a team of scientists and mercenaries stand in the way of eight-legged doom for humanity. Trapped on an island with a nest of hungry enemies, time is running out for the team as the killer spiders make it their goal to lay their eggs inside the bodies of every last human.
A handsome traveller with a girl in every village leaves a trail of murder behind him in 19th century Spain, but is he the actual killer or is there a beast stalking the night? Romasanta: The Werewolf Hunt, based on a true life murder case, is a chilling tale of bloody romance, shadowy forests and lycanthropes.
Fantastic Factory Presents… (cert. 18), featuring Beyond Re-Animator, Faust: Love Of The Damned, Arachnid and Romasanta: The Werewolf Hunt, will be released on DVD (£39.99) by Arrow Video on 18th April 2011.
