Collaborating with Sandberg behind-the-scenes from his “Lights Out” team are production designer Jennifer Spence, editor Michel Aller and composer Benjamin Wallfisch; they are joined by director of photography Maxime Alexandre (“The Other Side of the Door”) and costume designer Leah Butler (“Paranormal Activity 3 & 4”).
Oliver Stone makes his directorial debut in this tale of macabre horror and suspense! Horror writer Edmund Blackstone (Jonathan Frid from TV’s Dark Shadows) sees his recurring nightmare come to chilling life one weekend evening when he and his family and friends are terrorized and killed off one by one by the Queen of Evil (Martine Beswick, Thunderball) and her servants, a dwarf named Spider (Hervé Villechaize, Fantasy Island), and a giant scar-faced strongman called Jackal (Henry Judd Baker, After Hours). Is this a nightmare, or the real thing? Watch this cult classic from a brand new HD master from the original vault elements! The stellar cast includes cult legend Mary Woronov (Eating Raoul), Troy Donahue (The Thrill-Kill Murders), Joseph Sirola (Hang Em High) and Richard Cox (Cruising).
It triggered Australia’s exploitation explosion, sparked a worldwide censorship battle, and remains one of the most infamous biker movies in genre history. STONE is the full-throttle saga of an undercover cop (Ken Shorter)
who infiltrates the outlaw Grave Diggers (led by producer/director/co-writer Sandy Harbutt) on a one-way trip to hell with vengeance in their hearts, violence on their minds, and 150 horsepower of screaming steel between their legs.
Helen Morse (PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK), Bill Hunter (THE ADVENTURES OF PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT), members of the Sydney Hells Angels, and Hugh Keays-Byrne, Roger Ward, Vincent Gil and Reg Evans of MAD MAX fame co-star in the ultimate down-under cult classic, now fully restored from original vault elements.

In the wake of the success of Dario Argento’s ground-breaking giallo The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, numerous other directors stepped forward to try their hand at these lurid murder-mysteries. At the forefront was Sergio Martino (The Strange Vice of Mrs Wardh, Torso), whose sensual 70s thrillers starring Edwige Fenech and George Hilton are widely celebrated as some of the best the genre has to offer.
The final of Martino’s six gialli, The Suspicious Death of a Minor combines conventional giallo trappings with elements of the then flourishing poliziotteschi crime thrillers. Claudio Cassinelli (What Have They Done to Your Daughters?) stars as undercover cop Paolo Germi, on the trail of a Milanese criminal outfit following the brutal murder of an underage prostitute. But a killer-for-hire is also on the prowl, bumping off witnesses before they have a chance to talk. Also starring Mel Ferrer (Nightmare City), Barbara Magnolfi (Suspiria) and Jenny Tamburi (The Psychic), and featuring a script by veteran giallo writer Ernesto Gastaldi (All the Colours of the Dark, Death Walks at Midnight), this unique and lesser-known entry in Martino’s filmography serves as an essential link between two different movements in Italian popular cinema.
