The Borderlands Limited Edition


release date: 15th April 2024


A found-footage horror film following Vatican investigators sent to a remote English church to authenticate miracles. They uncover sinister forces as inexplicable phenomena occur, leading to a harrowing descent into supernatural horror. Tasked with documenting their findings, tensions rise among the team as they confront demonic manifestations and unearth dark secrets lurking within the church’s ancient walls.

Basket Case Limited Edition


release date: 29th April 2024


The feature debut of director Frank Henenlotter (Brain Damage, Frankenhooker), 1982’s Basket Case is a riotous and blood-spattered “midnight movie” experience. Duane Bradley seems like a pretty ordinary guy. His formerly conjoined twin Belial, on the other hand, is a deformed creature who lives in a wicker basket. Arriving in the Big Apple and taking up a room at a seedy hotel, the pair set about hunting down and butchering the surgeons responsible for their separation. 
Filmed on a shoestring budget against the backdrop of 1980s New York (where it played on the midnight movie circuit for over two-and-a-half years), Basket Case has clawed its way from its humble origins to become one of the most celebrated cult movies of all time.

Jabez Stone is a hardworking farmer trying to make an honest living, but a streak of bad luck tempts him to do the unthinkable: bargain with the devil himself.

That Cold Day In The Park


release date: 29th April 2024


Made after years of directing television and industrial films – and just one year before his commercial breakthrough with M*A*S*H – Robert Altman’s underrated psychosexual chiller That Cold Day in the Park, arguably the first true ‘Altman film’, is a stylish harbinger of the themes that would resonate through many of the director’s later masterpieces such as Images and 3 Women. On a cold and rainy day, Frances Austen (Sandy Dennis, Academy Award winner for Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), a reclusive virgin sheltered from the sexual revolution happening outside her door, suddenly becomes obsessed with an enigmatic 19 year-old boy she sees sitting on a park bench. Inviting him into her apartment to be bathed and fed, Frances’ repressed fantasies soon violently boil over into a dangerous and disturbing desire to keep the boy in her clutches… no matter what.
