Red Letter Day
Horror Buzz calls RED LETTER DAY “Twilight Zone on steroids!”, a totally apt description of this wildly clever and dynamically pulse-pounding take on the classic “The Monsters are Due on Maple Street”, where a mother and her two teens receive mysterious red letters instructing them to kill or be killed – and they’re not the only ones on this quiet suburban block who have received these letters…

7 Sins is divided into seven segments, each one unique in its voice, acting, story, and style. While the seven deadly sins are cemented in Catholic Theology and are always the same, the interpretation by any single person is always different, and this assemblage is no exception. This film uses the themes within its subtext and introduces, and then wildly perverts, the punishments associated with the 7 Deadly Sins. The overall atmosphere is one of uneasiness that, in addition to a fair amount of disturbing visuals, is amplified by its pulse-pounding soundtrack.

In a snowy mountain village, a beautiful woman is found dead. The group who found her considered the woman “Yuki Onna”, an in humanly beautiful snow woman ghost, whose eyes can strike terror into mortals who get lost travelling in the snowy mountains. Japanese legend says that the Snow Woman floats across the snow, leaving no footprints. However, the “snow woman” turns out to be alive, and identifies herself as “Yuki”. She then begins a sensual affair with Nyubei, one of the travellers who had tried to saver her, and her erotic climaxes put Yuki in a supernatural-like transcendent state. However, many of the villagers still believe her to be a monster, and they soon lead an attack on the mountain cabin where she’s hiding with Nyubei. Snow Woman is a romantic and erotic triumph of “Pink” filmmaking from the prolific Japanese studio AMG, and Darkside Releasing is very pleased to present this gem from AMG’s erotic catalogue for the first time on Blu-ray in North America!

Things Fall Apart
When a strange artifact is shared at a dinner party, it causes a group of old friends to question their loyalties and finally, their sanity… Shot in only 5 days with mostly improvised dialogue by award-winning writer/director Hussein Juma, “Things Fall Apart” is a unique blend of uncomfortable mumblecore drama and surreal horror film that has been compared to “Primer”.
