Default Fractured Visions

I thought this new UK boutique label deserved a thread based on their output so far.

I ordered their only two releases yesterday and put in a pre-order for their third release out in November.

So far we have - Silent Action


From maverick filmmaker Sergio Martino (Torso) comes his most explosive and provocative film, Silent Action. When high-ranking military officials turn up dead, all from apparent suicides or suspicious accidents, it’s down to Inspector Giorgio Solmi (Luc Merenda, The Violent Professionals) to find out what’s happened to them. Aided by Captain Mario Sperli (Tomas Milian, Almost Human), the two men soon find themselves in the midst of a deadly political scandal that threatens to bring Rome to its knees.


Making its global HD debut, Fractured Visions is proud to present Silent Action (A.K.A The Police Accuse: The Secret Service Kill), a bold and uncompromising take on a startling true story, lovingly restored and featuring a host of new bonus material.

Luz: The Flower of Evil


Far into the Colombian mountains, a small farming community is rocked by the arrival of a mysterious young boy. Their leader, El Señor, claims that the child is the new Messiah, there to save their land, yet his three daughters start to question their father’s beliefs when the community starts to dissolve into madness and violence. Is this boy God? The Devil? More importantly, is there a difference?

LUZ: THE FLOWER OF EVIL marks the arrival of a stunning new cinematic voice. Juan Diego Escobar Alzate’s harrowing yet beautiful take on Good versus Evil is unlike anything that has come before it and is essential viewing for any folk horror, acid western and dark arthouse film aficionados. Brace yourself.

Released Nov 29th

Free Hand For A Tough Cop


From the notorious Umberto Lenzi (Nightmare City) comes Free Hand For A Tough Cop, the film that introduced Tomas Milian’s legendary ‘Monnezza’ (A.K.A Garbage Can) to audiences around the world. When the critically ill daughter of a prominent family is kidnapped by a ruthless band of thugs, Inspector Sarti (Claudio Cassinelli, Suspected Death Of A Minor) is forced to bend the rules and oversees the prison break of Sergio 'Monnezza' Marazzi (Tomas Milian, Brothers Till We Die), a lowlife criminal with deep roots in the criminal underworld. The unlikely duo team-up in hopes of retrieving the girl and catching the infamous Brescianelli (Henry Silva, Almost Human), the crime boss behind the kidnapping, before time runs out.


Finally making its UK debut, Fractured Visions is proud to present Free Hand For A Tough Cop, a much-loved Euro Crime classic that spawned other genre staples like Umberto Lenzi’s Brothers Till We Die and Stelvio Massi’s Destruction Force. It all started here!

Nice one. I've not seen it before. Look forward to watching it. I believe NoShame released it on dvd but it passed me by as so many of their dvd's did.

It's hard to see what their line is supposed to be, so far the films are very varied.

Perhaps testing the waters with various genres. So far with two Italian crime films, a Colombian folk horror and a Korean film it could actually be a typical month for Arrow.

Except for the prices of course.
