I watched the Pemini films at the weekend.

The short HUNTED with the always excellent Woodward was great.

Assassins was not bad.Ian Hendry is no Jack Carter....

Hopefully MOMENTS will be a bit better.

Kudos to PH for exhuming these titles....

MAGIC, MYTH & MUTILATION
This Halloween in the UK and the USA, INDICATOR releases its grandest, most ambitious collection to date.

Amongst overlooked filmmakers, British director Michael J Murphy ranks as one of the most sorely neglected. Having cut his teeth on a variety of homemade 8mm shorts, he had completed three feature-length productions by the age of eighteen. Over the next five decades, Murphy would go on to make many more films across a variety of genres, dividing his production time between Greece, Portugal, and the UK, with family, friends, and local stage performers becoming his regular cast and crew in exchange for holidays in the sun.

Despite this prolific output – a total of more than thirty completed films over a half-century, of which twenty-six survive – Murphy’s work remains rarely seen and little championed. Fitfully available on videotape, and barely represented on DVD, this comprehensive and long-gestating ten-disc Blu-ray collection, MAGIC, MYTH & MUTILATION: THE MICRO-BUDGET CINEMA OF MICHAEL J MURPHY, 1967–2015, seeks to rectify the situation once and for all. Boasting all-new 2K restorations from archival 16mm and 8mm elements, as well as a number of new digital captures from Murphy’s personal tape masters, this extensive retrospective of the obsessive auteur’s work is bolstered by a wealth of bonus features, including surviving fragments from lost films, and a 120-page book, all of which provides the definitive account of the weird and wonderful worlds of Britain’s great unheralded DIY filmmaker.

MAGIC, MYTH & MUTILATION: THE MICRO-BUDGET CINEMA OF MICHAEL J MURPHY, 1967–2015, will be released on 24 October in the UK, and 25 October in the US and Canada, in a Limited Edition of 6,000 copies worldwide.

There is no multi-product bundle offer this month, as we are only publishing one new-release title, but, if you add the code BUNDLE at checkout, you'll receive a 10% discount on MAGIC, MYTH & MUTILATION: THE MICRO-BUDGET CINEMA OF MICHAEL J MURPHY, 1967–2015, and we'll throw in website-exclusive art cards for good measure (while stocks last). Offer runs until next month's new-release announcement.

I was just about to post about this Dem. I have never ever heard of Michael J.Murphy or any of these films but I'm definitely intrigued. Are you familiar with them?

I've seen that cover art previously. I think it's for Invitation to Hell but don't quote me on that.

Not familiar at all but i am contemplating a blind buy as there's something like 34 hours of movies on there.
