The Last House On The Left: Extended Version

Masters of horror Wes Craven and Sean Cunnigham revisit their landmark film that launched Craven's directing career and influenced decades of horror to follow: The Last House On The Left. Bringing one of the most notorious thrillers of all time to a new generation, they produce the story that explores how far two ordinary people will go to exact revenge on the sociopaths who harmed their child.

The night she arrives at the remote Collingwood lakehouse, Mari (Sara Paxton) and her friend are kidnapped by a prison escapee and his crew. Terrified and left for dead, Mari's only hope is to make it back to parents John and Emma (Tony Goldwyn and Monica Potter). Unfortunately, her attackers unknowingly seek shelter at the one place she could be safe. And when her family learns the horrifying story, they will make three strangers curse the day they came to The Last House On The Left.

harvest is about to begin.

Dead Set: Director's Cut

Starring Jaime Winstone (Donkey Punch, Kidulthood) Dead Set is a chilling new horror series in which the dead are returning to life and attacking the living. Curiously there are a few people left in Britain who aren't worried about any of this - that's because they're the remaining contestants in Big Brother. Cocooned in the safety of the Big Brother house, they're blissfully unaware of the horrific events unfolding in the outside world. Until an eviction night when all hell breaks loose...

Kelly (Winstone), a production runner working on a fictional series of Big Brother, finds herself trying to fend off the walking dead alongside her producer boss Patrick (Andy Nyman, Severance), boyfriend Riq (Riz Ahmed, Britz) and the remaining Big Brother housemates.
Over the ensuing days, in a cruel reflection of the game show they thought they were entering, the contestants fall victim one by one to the hungry masses outside. Staying alive requires crucial teamwork - which can be tricky when you're a group specifically selected by TV producers to wind each other up.Featuring a range of cameo appearances from Davina McCall and several former Big Brother housemates, Dead Set promises to be a gripping horror bound to keep you at the edge of your seat.

The Complete Fritz Lang Mabuse Box Set

THE COMPLETE FRITZ LANG MABUSE BOX SET - From the early stages of his career across five decades to his final film, Fritz Lang built a
trilogy of paranoiac thrillers focused on an entity who began as a criminal mastermind, and progressed into something more amorphous: fear itself, embodied only by a name - Dr. Mabuse. For the first time on home video, all three of Fritz Lang's Mabuse films havebeen collected for one package, in their complete and restored forms.

1: Dr. Mabuse, der Spieler. [Dr. Mabuse, the Gambler.] (1922) -Lang's two-part, nearly 5-hour silent epic detailing the rise and fall of Dr. Mabuse in Weimar-era Berlin.

2: Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse
[The Testament of Dr. Mabuse] (1933) - a
tour-de-force thriller rife with supernatural
elements, all converging around an attempt by the now-institutionalised Mabuse (or someone acting under his name... and possibly his will) to organise an "Empire of Crime".

3: Die 1000
Augen des Dr. Mabuse [The 1000 Eyes of Dr. Mabuse] (1960) - Fritz Lang's final film, in which hypnosis, clairvoyance, surveillance, and
machine-guns come together for a whiplash climax that answers the question: Who's channelling Mabuse's methods in the Cold War era?

The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Fritz Lang's complete Mabuse trilogy - a cornerstone in the work of one of cinema's all-time greatest directors. The Complete Fritz Lang Mabuse Box Set is released on 19 October 2009

    I haven't seen Dead Set yet, but have been put off seeing it mainly due to the fact that I loathe Big Brother and anything related to it.

    I have to admit though, I've seen a few clips and it does look interesting...

    I think that release of Vampire's Night Orgy is just a reissue of the old Pagan/ Hanzibar disc from 2000.
