DELIRIUM #35 REVISITS SATANIC SHOCKER THE SENTINEL!

DELIRIUM celebrates the legacy of Michael Winner’s savagely satanic 1977 horror masterpiece THE SENTINEL with a massive new cover story interview with the man who started it all, author Jeffrey Konvitz! Journalist Don Kaye goes deep with Konvitz to discuss his bestselling novel and the weird roads that led to the director of DEATH WISH taking over the cinematic reigns, as well as all the controversy the film courted. We also celebrate the legacy of Winner himself, certainly one of the most misunderstood and eccentric British filmmakers of all time. Elsewhere, we revisit Roger Corman’s hallucinatory Gothic chiller THE TERROR, hang out on stage with Rob Zombie, analyze the late Charles Laughton’s turn as THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME, remember legendary horror host Zacherly and so much more!

DELIRIUM #33: Do ya feel lucky, punk? Well…do ya!?

Do ya feel lucky, punk? Well…do ya!? Then pick up DELIRIUM #33 and check out our massive interview with actor Andrew Robinson! Robinson is the veteran actor who is beloved (and reviled) as playing the Cotton brothers in Clive Barker’s HELLRAISER, as well as hundreds of other credits on screens both big and small. But Robinson will forever – and rightly – be associated with his first film, Don Siegel’s 1971 thriller DIRTY HARRY, starring the great Clint Eastwood! In this brand new chat, Robinson fully dissects “Scorpio”, his malevolent serial killer alter-ego, and muses on why the character and the film has endured. We’ll also go deep-diving on all of his storied roles in stuff like COBRA, LIBERACE, STAR TREK and, of course, HELLRAISER! Plus, we’ve got features on the new creeper TRAP, actress Isabella Percival, a tribute to actor Clu Gulager and much more!

The cover of DELIRIUM #29 featuring Axelle Carolyn

I’ve been a fan of Axelle Carolyn since her first short film THE LAST POST, through her feature debut SOULMATE and onward. And when I saw her episode of THE HAUNTING OF BLY MANOR – one of the most moving and unsettling 60 minutes of Gothic horror poetry I’ve ever seen – I became aware of a burgeoning auteur. And so, we close out the year with a huge, career-to-date interview with the writer/director about her growing body of work and her singular creative point of view. A true dissection of an artist whose evolution is exciting to witness. Cover art by the brilliant (to put it mildly) Suspirialand – the concept was to take Axelle and some of her imagery and “Ingrid Pitt” her. And Suspirialand delivered, hard. Really excited about this unique issue.

Issue #28 shines the spotlight on John Carpenter’s Ghosts of Mars

‘Tis the season where everyone’s bugging John Carpenter to talk about HALLOWEEN.

Not us.

We harassed John long and hard enough and he eventually caved.

In this upcoming issue of our DELIRIUM magazine, you’ll find Carpenter talking about the making of his insane and underrated 2001 masterpiece GHOSTS OF MARS.

And we’re super excited to be celebrating it with the man who made it for this awesome upcoming October issue. And dig that crazy wicked exclusive cover painting by visionary artist Matthew Therrien!

Exclusive: Girlfriend from Hell to debut on Blu-ray from Culture Shock Releasing


GIRLFRIEND FROM HELL is a 1989 horror comedy from director Daniel Peterson that stars genre favorites James Karen (RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD) and Lezlie Deane (FREDDY’S DEAD: THE FINAL NIGHTMARE).

The upstart boutique label is putting the finishing touches on the disc release for the cult favorite that has not been readily available to own since the heyday of VHS.

The plot crunch follows Maggie (Liane Curtis), a shy high school girl that isn’t very good with men. This changes after she’s possessed by Satan, who uses Maggie’s body to seduce the souls out of various men. Satan is followed by an angelic Chaser (Dana Ashbrook), who is intent on capturing her once and for all.

Culture Shock Releasing is the union of Lo-Fi Video and Verboden Video, notes co-owner Daniel Del Pozzo.

After the success of our joint release of SLASHDANCE, we decided to merge our love of obscure cult films into one brand. Under this new name we are dedicated to bringing you the best in cult, horror, and beyond!

We will be preserving movies shot on video as well as film, and releasing them on DVD and Blu-ray, respectively. There will be a heavy focus on films from the 80’s and 90’s, mixed with some outstanding contemporary genre films.

We are running headlong into the future, uncovering lost gems and polishing up the classics to share with you!
