first up we have Inglourious Basterds, an awesome film! , some great looking fulci films and a spannish film ive never heard of before but im defo going to get hold of a copy!

then its not a bad week coming up especially if you love low budget films!

Inglourious Basterds

A WWII story so deranged it could only come from Quentin Tarantino! Mixing star turns from the likes of Brad Pitt with sweeping vistas and hyperkinetic, cartoonish violence, Inglourious Basterds is a loving ode to spaghetti westerns and trashy movies of yesteryear from a master filmmaker.

Inglourious Basterds begins in German-occupied France, where Shoshanna Dreyfus (Mélanie Laurent) witnesses the execution of her family at the hand of Nazi Colonel Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz). Shosanna narrowly escapes and flees to Paris, where she forges a new identity as the owner and operator of a cinema.

Elsewhere in Europe, Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) organizes a group of Jewish soldiers to engage in targeted acts of retribution. Known to their enemy as "The Basterds," Raine's squad joins German actress and undercover agent Bridget Von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger) on a mission to take down the leaders of The Third Reich. Fates converge under a cinema marquee, where Shosanna is poised to carry out a revenge plan of her own...

House Of Clocks

House Of Clocks is part of a four-part movie series made for Italian television under the umbrella title House of Doom. Legendary Italian horror maestros Umberto Lenzi and Lucio Fulci each contributed two films for the series: Lenzi made HOUSE OF LOST SOULS and HOUSE OF WITCHCRAFT, while Fulci offered HOUSE OF CLOCKS and SWEET HOUSE OF HORRORS.

One of Fulci's more obscure movies, his first contribution to the series centres on a group of young thugs, intent on robbery, who break into the home of a seemingly harmless couple with an antique clock collection. Though the elderly couple seem an easy target, the young toughs find themselves entering deeper and deeper into a terrifying nightmare after they murder the couple, whose clocks begin to turn back time for the thieves and exact a horrifying revenge on them. Playing out like a Lucio Fulci version of a TWILIGHT ZONE episode, HOUSE OF CLOCKS is sure to please fans of the gore auteur, who is recognized the world over as the sultan of splatter. Here, he creates a surprisingly surrealist story with plenty of atmosphere and originality.

The Sweet House Of Horrors

Fulci's second contribution to the series begins with a typically gory scene worthy of the director deemed "the sultan of splatter". A masked man breaks into a couple's home and brutally murders them in an extremely sadistic fashion, leaving their two children orphaned and haunted by the loss of their parents.

After this violent prologue, the film takes an unexpected turn into the realm of modern-day fairy tales as the grieving children conjure a supernatural force that brings their parents back to life. This tender yet desperate act results in disastrous consequences as the parents attempt to both comfort their children and exact revenge on their murderer. The Sweet House Of Horrors is a strange departure for Fulci, who creates an unusual mix of genres ranging from his trademark horror to some unexpected moments of comedy.

Murder In A Blue World

Often described as 'the Spanish Clockwork Orange', this controversial shocker is set in a violent near future world. Honset citizens live in terror as gangs of leather clad, whip wielding sadists roam the night time streets. Meanwhile, in a top secret laboratory, strange mind control experiments are being conducted. Against this background a beautiful nurse tries to ease the pain of those condemed to die. But who really is this angel of mercy and what is the purpose of her mission?

    Excellent blog once again BS

    Murder in a Blue World was released on video in the 80's as 'A Clockwork Terror'. I had the old UK dvd and thought it was boring.

    Yeah I used to have Murder in a Blue World... pegged as the 'Spanish Clockwork Orange'

    Sweet House of Horrors is one of four 'House' movies which (I think) were originally intended for Italian TV. Two were directed by Fulci (House of Clocks, Sweet House of Horrors) and two by Lenzi (House of Witchcraft, House of Lost Souls) All are pretty good films but Vipco have already released these.

    Great blog again BTW BS.

    House of Clocks is ok but i thought the others were crap. The Vipco box can be picked up quite cheaply. Good transfers too (I assume these new releases will be the same)

    Murder in a Blue World - Pagan DVD vs HB DVD

    Murder in a Blue World was released by Pagan to DVD in 2004. It used a VHS print with the English dub, and the picture wasn't anamorphically enhanced. What is the HB DVD like in comparison?
