A fiery tale of greed, revenge and atonement set in a Gold Rush boomtown populated by thugs, drunks and unlikely heroes.

This influential crime drama starring Lon Chaney in one of his most memorable screen performances. Mastered in HD from a 35mm restoration by the George Eastman House Motion Picture Department, and featuring a new musical score by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra, in 2.0 stereo and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. It is color-tinted according to the surviving instructions.
For years, Jess Franco has been a favorite of Euro horror enthusiasts -- for the dreamlike tone of his films and the sheer audacity with which he indulges his morbid sexual curiosity. With the release of these Blu-ray editions, Kino Lorber brings Franco to a wider audience, and places him alongside Mario Bava and Jean Rollin in the pantheon of cult directors ripe for rediscovery.
The fishermen quickly notice that the fish below the thick ice aren't biting, and Ray thinks the Cotes' state-of-the-art gear, including a loud ice drill, has scared them all away. But the two families' petty squabbles are soon eclipsed by a much greater enemy: Something unnatural and ferocious is under the ice and its prey is human.
Four friends decide to break into the city morgue and record themselves holding a seance after Joey (Campo) accuses the other of being a fake psychic medium. When the group summons a demon by mistake, Joey breaks the circle of protection and causes himself to be vulnerable. Once possessed they will have to find a way to drive the demon out of their friend before it destroys them all.
Three films by the master of Italian giallo film, Mario Bava: Hatchet For The Honeymoon (1970), Black Sunday (1960), and Lisa and The Devil (1973). The latter was re-cut and reissued as The House of Exorcism, and both films are included on this double-feature disc.
The undisputed master of the espionage serial, Louis Feuillade crafted films with labyrinthine plots and unforgettable characters that influenced multiple generations of filmmakers. Comprised of ten episodes, and clocking in at nearly seven hours in duration, Les Vampires is an unqualified masterpiece.
Tense and atmospheric, this spooky story features outstanding performances and plenty of suspense from the father of the modern ghost story. Iain Cuthbertson is thoroughly chilling as Karswell, and Jan Francis plays the increasingly desperate Dunning to the hilt in this tense and atmospheric British thriller.
Two beautiful orphaned identical twins, Maria and Frieda Gellhorn (Playboy centerfold models Mary and Madeleine Collinson), move to the village of Karnstein to live with their uncle Gustav Weil (played by Hammer horror favorite, Peter Cushing), a fanatical puritan and leader of the local witch-hunting Brotherhood.
Changes are afoot at Facets as they shift gears to keep up with the rapidly changing home-viewing industry.

Plus, each month, they will feature timely re-promotions of classics and favorites that are in the news to remind viewers that no other label offers such a unique selection of foreign, independent, and documentary films.
From Hungarian auteur Béla Tarr (2011 Berlinale winner The Turin Horse, Satantango) and with Oscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk about Kevin) comes the existential dazzler The Man From London. And from prolific Korean master Hong Sang- soo (Woman Is the Future of Man, Tale of Cinema) arrives a sharply funny tale of male woe, Night and Day.
