Experience the notorious 1969 horror epic that’s been barely seen since its fly-by-night VHS release while existing mostly via sordid rumors for more than 50 years: Anthony Eisley (THE NAKED KISS, DRACULA VS.

The legendary John Carradine (THE GRAPES OF WRATH, HORROR OF THE BLOOD MONSTERS) earns a day’s pay in this “truly incredible masterpiece of bad cinema” (Harbinger) written and produced by William Edwards (DRACULA THE DIRTY OLD MAN), directed by Oliver Drake (THE MUMMY’S CURSE), and scanned in 4K from the original negative discovered at Ewing ‘Lucky’ Brown’s Los Angeles estate sale, now with 2+ hours of Special Features that include the thought-lost Vega International adult feature ANGELICA, THE YOUNG VIXEN scanned from the sole surviving print.

The centerpiece of the radical underground Cinema Marginal movement, this “electric, legendary movie” (Slant Magazine) written and directed by 21-year-old Rogério Sganzerla defiantly attacked Brazil’s sociopolitical morals, gleefully subverted the rules of narrative cinema and has lost none of its power to shock, disturb and delight: Based on police reports of the real-life bandit who terrorized ‘60s São Paulo, a charismatic crook (Paulo Villaça) robs the rich, taunts law enforcement and becomes a public heroin an anarchic odyssey that’s equal parts crime thriller, urban western, grind house roughie, twisted comedy, cultural grenade and still unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Helena Ignez (José Mojica Marins’ EMBODIMENT OF EVIL) co-stars in this “hallucinatory and amazing manifesto” (Next Projection) now scanned in 2K from the original camera negative.

From iconoclastic French writer/director Paul Vecchiali (THE STRANGLER, FEMMES FEMMES) comes the wickedly perverse thriller that subverts the conventions of film noir by slyly flipping its traditional gender roles: When a prominent politician receives a pornographic film starring her son, she hires a hard-boiled private detective (Myriam Mézières of MY NIGHTS ARE MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN YOUR DAYS) to track down the blackmailer.

Sizzling Summer 4K Freedom - HDD July 2024 4K UHD Shopping Guide

The Summer Season is here. That means massive heat waves and a cascade of new movies in theaters. It also means we get a big busy string of new disc releases. July 2024 is a whopper of a release month for 4K UHD. 

Since we're just over halfway through the years, this is about when studios and indie labels start slipping out some big major new and catalog releases. We're just a few short months away from the crazy Holiday shopping season. So when we're not queuing up to see the latest new releases in theaters, chances are we're at home binging away on our latest disc buys. July tends to be a packed frame and this year is no different, so let's get into it. 

July 2024 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Shopping Guide

July 2nd - 4K UHD Releases 

This month starts fast with a full range of new releases, fan favorites, and cult classics. We're getting everything from great Comedies to Classic Westerns to Thrillers and explosive Action flicks. Some big favorites all drop this week putting an early pinch on our wallets. Usually, the month starts a bit slow, but between Criterion's new releases and KLSC moving a lot of their June slate to July, we'll need to make room on our shelves for new arrivals. 

      

     

     

  

   


July 9th - 4K UHD Releases  

Things don't slow down much for this second week. We've got classic horror, classic anime, classic thrillers, an insane Ray Liotta, one of the most controversial new releases of the year, and one of the best summertime disaster films! 

     

      

     

   


July 16th - 4K UHD Releases 

Things press the braks a little bit on the number of releases, but we get a few classic heavy hitters. Not only will we finally get all of the Rocky films in 4K but KLSC delivers a classic Horror/Sci-Fi film, a modern drama, while Ben Affleck was the bomb in I!

      

     

   

Rare Friday Release - July 19th 4K UHD 

 


July 23rd - 4K UHD Releases 

For the fourth Tuesday of the month, the pace picks up hard and fast. Criterion delivers two big ones, including the movie that made Tom Cruise a star. Universal finally delivers their underdog theatrical flick The Fall Guy. Sony unveils one of the greatest film noir thrillers of all time while the biggest shark franchise completes its 4K meal. Again, it's a lot and it's going to be expensive! 

     

     

    

     

    

   


July 30th - 4K UHD Releases  

Talk about a mix of everything for everyone. You've got thrillers, '80s action movies, a disgusting and terrifying zombie epic, and a whole lot more. No one said this hobby was going to be cheap, but this month doesn't slow down for the rare fifth Tuesday of the month. 

     

     

   

      

And that should just about do it. That's everything that's due to drop domestically on 4K for July 2024. Now as we saw last month with KLSC's 4K slate, release dates can change on a dime, so if anything shifts we'll update our listings ASAP.

Tom Tykwer's 'Run Lola Run' Sprints For A Solo 4K UHD Disc July 30th

After enjoying a rest with the 13-Film Sony Pictures Classics 4K set, Sony is sending Tom Tykwer's iconic multiversal thriller 'Run Lola Run' to the solo-disc races. All indications are this is the same disc as before, only without ten other films... and possibly without a slipcover.   

Run Lola Run is a hell of a film with a banger of a soundtrack. It looks amazing in 4K Dolby Vision and that German 5.1 mix is a beast. But, you'd only know that if you bought the 11-film Sony Pictures Classics 4K box set. Which is a great set if you wanted all of those other films. For those you didn't want the box set, well, Lola is taking another run on 4K, this time on her own! All indications for this press release tell me this is the same great disc as before. It doesn't indicate if the English and Spanish dubbed tracks will be included or not. My guess is that they will be and this is just a simple repackage without the custom slipcover - we've put in a question about that and when we get news we'll update. until then here's to 25 years of Run Lola Run

Run Lola Run - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray 

 

SYNOPSIS
A thrilling post-MTV roller-coaster ride, RUN LOLA RUN is the internationally acclaimed sensation
about two star-crossed lovers who have only minutes to change the course of their lives. Time is running out for Lola (Franka Potente). She’s just received a frantic phone call from her boyfriend Manni (Moritz Bleibtreu), who’s lost a small fortune belonging to his mobster boss. If Lola doesn’t replace the money in twenty minutes, Manni will surely suffer severe consequences. Written and directed by Tom Tykwer.

The Chronicles of Riddick - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray (Arrow Limited Edition) 

The Chronicles of Riddick - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray (Arrow Limited Edition) 

Following the sleeper success of their breakthrough sci-fi/horror smash Pitch Black, writer-director David Twohy and star Vin Diesel reunited for 2004’s action-packed The Chronicles of Riddick, an expansive and ambitious sequel that took their eponymous antihero to the farthest reaches of the galaxy.

Riddick (Diesel) is an intergalactic fugitive whose dark past catches up with him when he is lured out of hiding by Imam (Keith David, The Thing), another survivor of the planet of horrors they barely escaped from five years earlier. Now out of the shadows, Riddick is identified by an ethereal emissary (Academy Award winner Dame Judi Dench) as the descendant of an ancient race of warriors who may be the universe’s last hope against the Necromongers, an evil army of fanatics intent on bending the world to their will. As enemies close in on all sides, including the ruthless Lord Marshal (Colm Feore, Thor) and his scheming lieutenant Vaako (Karl Urban, The Boys), Riddick finds himself a reluctant saviour of the cosmos, with only his razor-sharp wits and cunning killer instinct standing in the way of total annihilation.

At long last, Twohy and Diesel’s hard-hitting outer-space epic has been restored in glorious 4K, with hours of incisive bonus features exploring every detail of this densely-constructed and masterfully-executed mythology.

The Threat (Arrow Limited Edition) 

The Threat (Arrow Limited Edition) 

IMPRISONED IN HIS OWN HOME!

The Threat is a gritty crime drama in the vein of Kurosawa’s High and Low, set against the backdrop of a rapidly modernizing Japan that has left many of its citizens behind.

Misawa (Rentar? Mikuni, Fugitive from the Past, Vengeance is Mine) appears to lead a charmed life, the very model of Japan’s post-war economic miracle. His position as the account manager of a prestigious advertising agency is enough to pay the mortgage on the spacious modern house he shares with his wife (Masumi Harukawa, Intentions of Murder) and their two young boys, kitted out with all the latest mod-cons. Then one day, the fragility of his existence is revealed when two violent jail-breakers turn up on his doorstep seeking refuge and threatening to embroil Misawa in their criminal activities.

Arrow Video presents this little-seen early masterpiece from Kinji Fukasaku, the future director of Battles Without Honor and Humanity and Battle Royale, for the very first time outside of its own country in a stunning new transfer.

A talented and versatile journeyman, director Sergio Martino (The Case of the Scorpion’s Tail, Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key) lent his talents to multiple genres across his long and varied career, but is undoubtedly best known for his giallo thrillers from the early 70s. Among the most highly acclaimed of these, 1973’s Torso revels in the genre’s time-honored traditions while simultaneously laying the groundwork for the modern slasher movie.

A sex maniac is prowling the streets of Perugia, targeting the picturesque university town’s female students. Alarmed at the plummeting life expectancy of the student body, Jane (Suzy Kendall, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage) and her three friends elope to a secluded country villa – only to discover that, far from having left the terror behind, they’ve brought it with them!

Also known as Carnal Violence, Torso was released in Italy towards the end of the giallo boom before enjoying a second life on the American grindhouse circuit. Co-starring Tina Aumont (Salon Kitty) and Luc Merenda (The Violent Professionals), the film finds its director at the top of his game, delivering copious levels of violence, sleaze, and one of the tensest cat-and-mouse games ever committed to celluloid!

Friday the 13th (2009) - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray (Arrow Limited Edition) 

Friday the 13th (2009) - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray (Arrow Limited Edition) 

In 2003, director Marcus Nispel made a lasting impression on horror fans with his box-office-topping remake The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Six years later, he turned his camera to another slasher icon, none other than the hulking masked killer Jason Voorhees, in his gore-soaked remake of Friday the 13th.

A group of oblivious teenagers choose Camp Crystal Lake as the destination for a weekend getaway. Among them, the young Clay Miller (Jared Padalecki, Supernatural) is not looking for fun and frolics, but for his sister Whitney who disappeared around the lake six weeks earlier. The trip turns into a waking nightmare as the bloodthirsty Jason emerges from the shadows, wielding a deadly machete and out for blood. Cut off from civilization, these youths discover too late that Crystal Lake bears the scars of a violent past as they uncover the terrifying events that spurred the masked killer’s quest for violent vengeance.

Nispel’s taut direction and the stunning cinematography by Daniel Pearl – whose credits include the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre as well as the remake – bring a fresh and terrifying new perspective to the infamous hockeymasked maniac, sure to bring chills and thrills to even hardened horror veterans!

Love, Death & Apocalypse: Three Films by Álex de la Iglesia -
4K Ultra HD Blu-ray (Arrow Limited Edition) (UK Import)

Love, Death & Apocalypse: Three Films by Álex de la Iglesia - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray (Arrow Limited Edition) (UK Import) 

Outrageous, absurdist, grotesque! Often hilarious, always stylish, and utterly unpredictable, the films of Spanish director Álex de la Iglesia are an exhilarating shock to the cinematic system.

Produced by legendary provocateur Pedro Almodóvar, de la Iglesia’s debut feature Acción Mutante is a violent sci-fi black comedy set in a post-apocalyptic world where attractive people hold all the power and a terrorist group, who see themselves as mutants, take arms to rid the world of their superficial oppressors. With his second feature, The Day of the Beast (El día de la bestia) de la Iglesia delivered one of the greatest horror comedies of all time as a Catholic priest joins forces with a heavy metal fan, and the host of a popular occult TV show to kill the Antichrist on Christmas Eve. A critical and commercial success around the world, The Day of the Beast paved the way for gonzo action-crime-horror Perdita Durango, (aka Dance with the Devil) a Spanish-US-Mexican co-production based on a novel by Barry Gifford (author of Wild at Heart). Starring Rosie Perez (Do the Right Thing), a then little known Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men) and James Gandolfini (The Sopranos), Perdita Durango is a twisted tale of love, guns, drugs, voodoo ceremonies, and refrigerated foetuses...

Making their UK debut on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray with a wealth of new and archival extras, Arrow Video welcomes you to the delirious, diabolical and demented world of Álex de la Iglesia. Not for the faint of heart!

Unobstructed View Unleashes Caligula: The Ultimate Cut Limited Numbered 4K UHD & Blu-ray on 9/17

Unobstructed View is bringing Tinto Brass' newly restored 'Caligula: The Ultimate Cut' - the scene-by-scene reconfiguration of the controversial epic chronicling the Roman Empire’s most debauched emperor for a limited numbered 4K UHD Blu-ray release.

“We have been waiting for the right vehicle with which to amp up our US game and this film is it - notorious, rare and collectible,” says UV’s founder and President Jonathan Gross, who licensed UV’s rights from Drafthouse Films. “We are thrilled that Drafthouse Films has chosen to work with us. We are also thrilled to have Diabolik on board because they are a leading provider of curated home entertainment.”

Tormented by the murder of his family, the young, wary Caligula (Malcolm McDowell) eliminates his devious adoptive grandfather Tiberius (Peter O'Toole) and seizes control of the declining Roman Empire as it descends into a spiral of depravity, destruction and madness. Restoring the complete performances of McDowell and O'Toole along with fellow film legends Helen Mirren and John Gielgud, this extensive reconstruction of the notorious 1980 spectacle, based on the original narrative as conceived by writer Gore Vidal, had its world premiere at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival. Showcasing the sumptuous costume designs of two-time Oscar winner Danilo Donati (Fellini's Cassanova; Romeo & Juliet), CALIGULA: THE ULTIMATE CUT features an entirely new score by Troy Sterling Nies, as well as a new animated title sequence by graphic artist Dave McKean (Arkham Asylum, The Sandman).
