Hey all, Wildside have the skinny on the latest releases from Masters of Giallo... What're you waiting for? Get reading!

Lucio Fulci's House by the Cemetary:

Home is where the entrails are! Lucio Fulci’s intestine splattered homage to the works of H. P. Lovecraft is as intriguing, and as shocking, now as it was nearly 30 years ago. Norman Boyle (Malco) has been assigned the task of finding out what led the titular home’s previous inhabitant, Dr. Fruedstein, to murder his family, before killing himself – or so they believe.

Lamberto Bava's Macabre

When you’re the son of a legend, expectations are usually of the highest order. When your father is a certain Mario Bava, the shadow you walk in is cast far and wide; when it comes time to fill shoes, the pressure could cause claustrophobia and induce ulcers! So you can imagine what must have been running through Lamberto Bava’s mind when he decided to direct his own feature. Luckily, he proved himself a notable talent in his own right with this grimy slice of 80’s exploitation.

    Great reviews phil. Funny you should mention Redemptions cover art, the same guy who did the artwork for the MOG releases also done new artwork for Redemptions Grapes of Death and The Nude Vampire that were given awy free with DVD World magazine and they looked superb.

    Thank for the kind words, ya'll!! But lets give it up for Arrow for actually showin' these films some luurv!
