Reprising their roles, Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, star as Lorraine and Ed Warren, who, in one of their most terrifying paranormal investigations, travel to north London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits.

The film follows the phenomenal worldwide reception of Wan’s “The Conjuring,” which marked the largest opening ever for an original horror movie. The film went on to make more than $319 million worldwide and still remains the second highest grossing original horror movie of all time, second only to “The Exorcist.”

Emilio P.Miraglia KILLER DAMES Giallo Box Set / Arrow DVD&Blu-ray released 23rd May.

kd

At the height of the Italian giallo boom in the early 1970s, scores of filmmakers turned their hand to crafting their own unique takes on these lurid murder-mystery thrillers. This limited edition double pack features two distinctive offerings by Emilio P. Miraglia, which meld twisty whodunit narratives with gothic chills.

In The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave, troubled aristocrat Alan Cunningham (Anthony Steffen, Django the Bastard), haunted by the death of his first wife Evelyn, tries to move on by marrying the seductive Gladys (Marina Malfatti, All the Colours of the Dark). Marital bliss is short-lived, however, as various relatives meet untimely and gruesome deaths, prompting speculation that a vengeful Evelyn has risen from the grave.

Meanwhile, in The Red Queen Kills Seven Times, an age-old family curse hits sisters Kitty (Barbara Bouchet, Milano Calibro 9) and Franziska (Marina Malfatti) following the death of their grandfather Tobias (Rudolf Schündler, The Exorcist, Suspiria). Every hundred years, so the legend goes, the bloodthirsty Red Queen returns and claims seven fresh victims. Was Tobias just the first… and are Kitty and Franziska next?

With both films making their worldwide Blu-ray debuts in stunning new 2K restorations, there has never been a better time to explore these little-seen giallo gems!

BLACK MASS review.

jd1

In 1970s South Boston, FBI Agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) persuades Irish mobster James “Whitey” Bulger (Johnny Depp) to collaborate with the FBI in order to eliminate a common enemy: the Italian mob. The drama tells the story of this unholy alliance, which spiralled out of control, allowing Whitey to evade law enforcement, consolidate power and become one of the most ruthless and dangerous gangsters in Boston history.

gggg

Johnny Depp delivers a tour-de-force portrayal of real-life mobster James “Whitey” Bulger in Scott Cooper’s stylish and at times violent crime thriller.Depp’s Bulger is a genuinely chilling performance of brooding menace and sustained dread. Black Mass is no glamour piece or love letter to Bulger.Much respect goes to Scott Cooper for staying real to his subject matter, thus retaining the visceral feel of Bulger’s crime -riddled existence.

Depp immerses himself in the role under very heavy prosthetics including the coldest blue contact lenses which lend a vampiric slant to his appearance.Depp is shot in low light for many of the close up scenes only to be revealed in full glare when Bulger’s temper boils to the surface.Only then do we see the full transformation of Depp into Bulger.

This is not only Johnny’s best film for over a decade but, for my money, his best performance since Terry Gilliam’s ‘Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas’.
