Drag Me To Hell


Director Sam Raimi (Spider-Man trilogy, Evil Dead series) returns to the horror genre with Drag Me To Hell, an original tale of a young woman's desperate quest to break an evil curse.

Christine Brown (Alison Lohman) is an ambitious L.A. loan officer with a charming boyfriend, Professor Clay Dalton (Justin Long). Life is good until the mysterious Mrs. Ganush (Lorna Raver) arrives at the bank to beg for an extension on her home loan. Should Christine follow her instincts and give the old woman a break? Or should she deny the extension to impress her boss, Mr. Jacks (David Paymer), and get a leg-up on a promotion? Christine fatefully chooses the latter, shaming Mrs. Ganush and dispossessing her of her home.

In retaliation, the old woman places the powerful curse of the Lamia on Christine, transforming her life into a living hell. Haunted by an evil spirit and misunderstood by a skeptical boyfriend, she seeks the aid of seer Rham Jas (Dileep Rao) to save her soul from eternal damnation. To help the shattered Christine return her life to normal, the psychic sets her on a frantic course to reverse the spell. As evil forces close in, Christine must face the unthinkable: how far will she go to break free of the curse?

Trick 'R Treat



It is said that Halloween is the night when the dead rise to walk among us and other unspeakable things roam free. The rituals of All Hallows Eve were devised to protect us from their evil mischief, and one small town is about to be taught a terrifying lesson that some traditions are best not forgotten. Nothing is what it seems when a suburban couple learns the dangers of blowing out a Jack-o-Lantern before midnight; four women cross paths with a costumed stalker at a local festival; a group of pranksters goes too far and discovers the horrifying truth buried in a local legend; and a cantankerous old hermit is visited by a strange trick-or-treater has a few bones to pick. Costumes and candy, ghouls and goblins, monsters and mayhem... the tricks and treats of Halloween turn deadly as strange creatures of every variety try to survive the scariest night of the year!

Critters 1-4 Collection



Critters: When you've got Critters...you need all the help you can get!

It's no picnic for the Brown family when a lethal litter of carnivorous aliens arrives unannounced at their Kansas farm. Trapped in a deadly nightmare, the terrified Browns fight for their lives against the attacking bloodthirsty monsters. But it's a losing battle until two intergalactic bounty hunters arrive, determined to blow the hellish creatures off the planet!

It's an alien adventure, full of action and just crawling with Critters!

Critters 2: The Main Course: Get ready for seconds... they're back!

It's been two years since the fiendish Critters first terrorized the town of Grovers Bend and sent the Brown family packing. But the "boy who called Critter," Brad Brown (Scott Grimes), is back... and just in time! Critter eggs have been hatching lethal litters and the bloodthirsty hairballs are eager to partake in their favourite pastime - eating. In no time, the eggs are popping open everywhere - a field full of livestock becomes a gigantic feeding ground and local residents are disappearing by the mouthful.

Fortunately, three bounty hunters from space, Ug, Lee and Charlie, are flying back to eradicate the problem. but can they wipe out the Critters before Grovers Bend is erased from the map?

Critters 3: As the fanged, furious furballs viciously invade an L.A. apartment building and sink their teeth into the low-rent tenants, DiCaprio leads the battle to beat back the conniving Critters and save the planet. It won't be an easy job but he's the one person the human race must depend on to destroy these terrifying alien invaders once and for all!

Critters 4: Critters In Space In space, they love to hear you scream!

The Critters are back in this supercharged sci-fi space adventure! But these are no ordinary Critters - they're a super strain of genetically engineered mutants designed to take over the universe. This time they're hungry to conquer the galaxy with an appetite for mankind that's out of this world!

Colin



Colin is the 45 Zombie movie! Already a worldwide phenomenon with huge coverage of the film since it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, first time film-maker Marc Price has made a film like no other before it - told through the Zombie's (Colin) perspective.

Our hero Colin is bitten by a Zombie; he dies and returns from the dead. We follow him as he wanders through suburbia during the throes of a cadaverous apocalypse.

Shot at locations in both Wales and London, Colin has more than its fair share of gore, along with several ambitious set pieces including a broad daylight zombie vs. human street battle and an epic housebound siege. It is also an exploration of who Colin was when he was alive through the objects, places and people he becomes attached to. The make-up design is beautifully realised. Humans are sweaty and dirty whilst the zombies are blood-stained and full of character.

The cult hit from Frightfest and Raindance film festivals is the must have Zombie movie for this Halloween!

Clive Barker: Book Of Blood


John Harrison directs this British horror based on two short stories by Clive Barker: 'The Book of Blood' and 'On Jerusalem Street'. Jonas Armstrong stars as Simon McNeal, a college student known for his psychic powers who is employed by paranormal researcher Mary Florescu (Sophie Ward) to investigate a haunted house where a gruesome murder has taken place. As the pair uncover the house's dark and shocking secret, the divide between the living and the dead becomes dangerously blurred - with brutal and bloody consequences.

Blood Rain



Blood Rain marks the second feature of South Korean director Kim Dae-seung (Bungee Jumping Of Their Own), and is a detective thriller set in 1808 during the Joseon Dynasty. Mysterious and deadly events are filling the residents of the remote island of Donghwa with a sense of foreboding. A local shaman (Choi Ji-na) collapses during an annual ritual, and seems momentarily possessed by the spirit of Kang (Jeon Ho-jin), a local lord who was executed. Lee Won-kyu (Cha Seung-weon) arrives from the mainland to investigate and is immediately met with a murder case. As the body count rises, Lee discovers a connection between the victims, and chillingly, to Kang himself.
