BERSERK - LE
£15.99
Region Free



Limited Blu-ray Edition (UK Blu-ray premiere)

After the huge success of Robert Aldrich’s What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?(1962), Hollywood legend Joan Crawford found herself taking the lead in a series of lurid and sensational horror pictures in her later years – and Berserk was one of the best and most successful.

Crawford stars as a ruthless circus owner who exploits a series of gruesome murders for her own ends... until the killer targets her. Directed by Jim O’Connolly (Valley of Gwangi, Tower of Evil) and co-starring Diana Dors (Yield to the Night, Deep End), Michael Gough (Horror Hospital, Batman) and Judy Geeson (10 Rillington Place, Inseminoid), Berserk is a deranged slice of Great British Grand(Dame) Guignol – a bloody exploitation classic!

Synopsis:

One of British genre cinema’s most important and distinctive independent filmmakers, Norman J Warren made a series of horror films which were at the forefront of a new wave in British horror during the 1970s. Reflecting a period of permissiveness and fearlessness, Warren’s distinctive stylings are far removed from the Gothic conventions of Hammer Films, deliberately upped the ante in terms of sex, violence and gore to create a new breed of horror that was designed to shock for shock’s sake.

Five of Norman J Warren’s horrifying chillers are presented here in new restorations and on Blu-ray for the very first time in the UK.

THE LEGACY (LE)
REGION FREE

Written by the late, great Jimmy Sangster (The Revenge of Frankenstein, Taste of Fear), this supernatural riff on Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None is a gruesome, hugely entertaining chiller.

Two American architects (real-life couple Katharine Ross and Sam Elliott, who met on the set of this film) are holidaying in England and find themselves trapped at a country mansion where the various guests become victims in a series of unexplained and increasingly violent deaths.

Director Richard Marquand (Return of the Jedi, Jagged Edge), making his feature-film directing debut, deftly balances horror and grisly black humour. The film also boasts sumptuous photography by the great Dick Bush and Alan Hume, a wonderfully eccentric score by Michael J Lewis and a superb supporting cast which includes Charles Gray, Margaret Tyzack, Ian Hogg, John Standing and The Who’s Roger Daltrey.

Re: Powerhouse Indicator releases

I love Indicator, and I enjoy Satan's Slave and The Legacy, but I think I'm good with the Shout disc I have for the latter, and I'll probably just go with the VS disc for the former.

Re: Powerhouse Indicator releases

HAMMER VOLUME 5 comes out March 23. Their site says this one's Region B, which seems odd as these were all distributed in the U.S. by Columbia, much like pretty much every other film in the previous Hammer sets. PIRATES OF BLOOD RIVER is/was a Twilight Time release, but I can't see that forcing Indicator to make this Region B. Strange, especially considering that most of these are lesser Hammer shows

https://www.powerhousefilms.co.uk/co...eath-deceit-le

VISA TO CANTON (Michael Carreras, 1961)
THE PIRATES OF BLOOD RIVER (John Gilling, 1962)
THE SCARLET BLADE (John Gilling, 1963)
THE BRIGAND OF KANDAHAR (John Gilling, 1965)

Release date: 23 March 2020
Limited Blu-ray Edition (UK and World premieres on Blu-ray)

Hammer Volume Five: Death & Deceit collects four films from the early sixties which found the studio looking beyond the horror genre for its next box-office success. Visa to Canton (1961, released in the US as Passport to China) is a torn-from-the-headlines spy thriller; The Pirates of Blood River (1962), starring Kerwin Mathews (The 7th Voyage of Sinbad) and Christopher Lee (The Face of Fu Manchu), is a swashbuckling adventure; The Scarlet Blade (1963, released in the US as The Crimson Blade) is an English Civil War-set actioner which follows the fortunes of Cromwell’s Roundheads; and The Brigand of Kandahar (1965) takes Hammer to the North-West Frontier for an action-adventure starring Ronald Lewis (Taste of Fear) and Oliver Reed (The System). All four films are presented for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK, while Visa to Canton, The Scarlet Blade and The Brigand of Kandahar make their world Blu-ray premieres. This limited edition box set is strictly limited to 6,000 numbered units.

Re: Powerhouse Indicator releases

Some of the titles in Hammer volume 5 are licensed from Studio Canal, so it was always known they would be region locked. The surprise was that the Sony title also required locking. I would assume it was because of Twilight Time, but who knows.

Shipping is really cost prohibitive. It's more than 13 Pounds on the Indicator site and will be about the same once it hits Amazon UK.

Re: Powerhouse Indicator releases

I heard that Diabolik DVD has it for pre-order at $33.99, so I figure that's the cheapest option even with tax and shipping.

yep, just placed. no tax and $5.00 shipping so $38.99 is perfect for this incredible and disturbing movie.

thanks again. so when it says "Backordered" that just means bc it is a preorder, right? and are they in the states?

They're in the states. If an item is backordered I assume that they ran out of stock or fulfilled all of their open pre-orders.

Where does it say it's backordered?

https://www.diabolikdvd.com/product/...-ray-region-b/

I see it says pre-order and coming soon. I've seen other items that have been released may say "out of stock."

Re: Powerhouse Indicator releases

Here's their policies:

https://www.diabolikdvd.com/store-policies-faq/

I assume that's just a placeholder then because it's a pre-order. Believe me, they're most likely going to start getting my business (even though I hate getting charged immediately), because UK shipping is cost-prohibitive. I wouldn't worry.
