FEATURES:

 

Secret Screening #1

Directed by ???

 


Zombie (1979)

a.k.a. Zombi 2

Directed by Lucio Fulci (The Beyond)

 

We are going to eat you!

 

In Italy, it was considered the 'unofficial sequel' to Zombi: Dawn of the Dead. In England, it was known as Zombie Flesh Eaters and banned as obscene. In America, it was called Zombie and advertised with the depraved tag line "WE ARE GOING TO EAT YOU!" Tisa Farrow (The Grim Reaper), Ian McCulloch (Contamination), Al Cliver (Cannibals), and Richard Johnson (The Haunting) star in this worldwide splatter sensation directed by 'Maestro Of Gore' Lucio Fulci (The BeyondManhattan Baby) that remains one of the most eye-skewering, skin-ripping, gore-gushingly graphic horror hits of all time!


Just in time for its 40th Anniversary, Blue Underground is proud to present Zombie in a brand-new 4K Restoration from the original uncut and uncensored camera negative. This is Zombie like you've truly never seen it before.


"An instant gorehouse classic!" - Fangoria



Zombie 3 (1981)

Directed by Lucio Fulci (Manhattan Baby), Claudio Fragasso (Troll 2) and Bruno Mattei (Hell of the Living Dead)  


A group of terrorists release a cloud of putrefying toxic waste, causing the local population to mutate into a mass of ferocious, flesh-chomping zombies!


Shortly before completing the sequel to his classic 1979 chomper romper Zombie, the legendary Lucio Fulci became ill and left the Philippines-based production. When writers Claudio Fragasso & Rosella Drudi (Troll 2) and director Bruno Mattei (The Other Hell) stepped in to finish, the result became one of the most insanely enjoyable zombie romps in EuroCult history.


After a deadly virus is stolen from a government lab, it unleashes a wildly entertaining combo of Fulci’s signature extreme violence, Fragasso-style surreal logic and big bloody buckets of goo-spewing mayhem that must be seen to be believed.


“For fans of wonky gore and inspired Italian lunacy, Zombie 3 delivers." - Ian Jane, RockShockPop.com

 

  

The Mask 3-D (1961)

Directed by Julian Roffman (The Bloody Brood)

 

Julian Roffman's psychotronic classic newly restored in 3-D!

 

After the shocking death of a disturbed patient, psychiatrist Dr. Allan Barnes (Paul Stevens) comes into possession of the ancient tribal mask that supposedly drove the young man to his doom. When Barnes puts on the mask, he is assailed with nightmarish visions of monsters, occultists, and ritual torture. Believing that the mask has opened a portal to the deepest recesses of his mind, the doctor continues to explore this terrifying new psychic world -- even as the mask reveals a latent violence in Barnes' nature that threatens those closest to him.

 

Shot in Toronto on a shoestring budget, The Mask (retitled Eyes of Hell for its American release) claims the distinction of being the first feature-length Canadian horror movie. Director Julian Roffman turns the act of wearing the anaglyph 3D glasses into part of the theatrical experience: when Barnes' voice intones the immortal words "Put the mask on, now!," the audience puts on their glasses to witness the doctor's visions, a riot of psychedelic imagery rendered in bright, blazing color. Premiering at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, this edition of The Mask was digitally restored by the 3-D Film Archive from the best surviving 35mm film elements.


“It’s an obvious trailblazer in the realm of spooky, hallucinogenic horror and a magnificent feast for the eyes of bizarre film followers.” - Joseph A Ziemba, BleedingSkull.com



Secret Screening #2

Directed by ???

 

 

Fright Night (1985)

Directed by Tom Holland (Child's Play)

 

Lock your doors and windows tight.

 

He’s sweet, sexy, and he likes to get in late. You might think he’s the perfect neighbor. But before inviting him Jerry in for a nightcap, there’s something you should know. Jerry prefers his drinks warm, red, and straight from the jugular! It's Fright Night, a horrific howl starring Chris Sarandon as the seductive vampire and William Ragsdale as the frantic teenager struggling to keep Jerry's deadly fangs out of his neck.  


Only 17-year-old Charley Brewster (Ragsdale) knows Jerry’s bloodcurdling secret. When Charley cant get anybody to believe him, he turns to TV horror host Peter Vincent (Roddy McDowall), who used to be the Great Vampire Killer of the movies. Can these mortals save Charley and his sweetheart Amy (Amanda Bearse) from the wrathful bloodsuckers toothy embrace? If you love being scared, Fright Night will give you the nightmare of your life!

"Fright Night is a classic which should be respected and enjoyed with a cold beer." - J.P. Butcher, TheFleshFarm.com
