German auteur Ulli Lommel sets aside serial killer flicks for a while so he can get back to his roots with the 4th chapter in the Boogeyman series. DELIRIUM is currently working on an interview for a future issue with Andreea Boyer, who is one of the stars of the flick!
Because you guys are so damn awesome, here’s the first look at DELIRIUM #10! You can buy the first nine of our pretty/sexy little mag HERE. So do it.
**We have set a tentative date of Saturday, March 19th, from 2-4pm at Dark Delicacies in Burbank, California for our next signing.**
It has been way too many moons (ha!) since Luigi Cozzi (Lewis Coates) has directed a movie. The Italian filmmaker has given fans cool flicks like Hercules, Contamination and Starcrash. While there is no domestic release date right now, there is an early poster and trailer to keep fans at bay…
We did a retrospective on The Hazing (which stars Tiffany Shepis) in issue #8 of DELIRIUM, on sale here. Now, comes a new film starring the femme fatale that appears to be a goofy good time.
She Wolf Rising howls onto to DVD on April 19th.
This supernatural thriller explores the dark side of underground film making. Gina Skylar, the reigning queen of horror, lures Jake Bubar, her number one fan, into the decadent world of illusions and myths to help her find Robert Lonzo’s (her producer), stolen film footage. Jake sees her vulnerability and beauty and cannot resist her. His beliefs are challenged when he discovers Gina’s true nature but he cannot control his forbidden desire for her. Together, they forge ahead and deal with the demons and beasts that try to stop them.
From the man who brought you The Driller Killer, Abel Ferrara, comes the biopic about Pier Paolo Pasolini called Pasolini. If his name doesn’t ring a bell, perhaps the notorious picture he made in the ’70s will… Salò, or The 120 Days of Sodom.
There is no Stateside release date as of yet.
The Gong Show was a staple in the Bene household as a wee lad. Little did I know that there was a movie based upon the wackadoodle television series, and it’s a juicy one.
Shout! Factory has penciled in a street date of March 29th!
Hey, Chuckie Baby!
From the dangerous mind of Chuck Barris comes one of the most infamous motion pictures ever- The Gong Show Movie! Long absent from home video formats, this one-of-a-kind cult film has at last taken its act to Blu-ray. Inspired by the TV talent(less) show, The Gong Show Movie presents a week in the life of beleaguered game show producer and Gong Show host Chuck Barris (played by Mr. Barris himself, in a masterstroke of casting.) Between a ratings-obsessed executive, out-of-control contestants and judges, and a seemingly endless string of auditions and encounters with “fans,” Chuck’s got his hands full…which leaves him no room to keep a grip on his own sanity. Can he get it together before the gong is struck on both his private life and his career?
Co-written by Barris and underground film legend Robert Downey Sr. (Putney Swope), The Gong Show Movie is by turns anarchic and melancholy, a wild mood swing of cinema. It’s time to fire up Gene Gene the Blu-ray Machine, learn to stop worrying, and love the Gong. Featuring appearances by Gong Show favorites, moments that got gonged by the censors, and more stuff.

Filmmaker Adam Rifkin’s crowdfunded flick Director’s Cut is premiering in Park City as the Slamdance Special Screening Opening Night Film, and now the first footage has been let loose. This is meta as they come!
The horror/black comedy follows a deranged lunatic named Herbert Blount (Jillette), who donates a large sum of money to a crowdfunded horror movie which lands him on set, after which he aspires to replace the real director of a movie and make it his own by steeling the footage, capturing the lead actress (Pyle) and reshooting scenes the way he’d like them for his own version. The story is told via the director’s commentary over this new and improved version of the film.
On April 12th, Scream Factory brings two screwball flicks from the 1980s (both starring Anthony Perkins) to Blu-ray for the first time ever. Check it out, man!

The Asylum lets the dogs out in the newest effort from the writer of The Hitcher! I missed this one when it premiered on the Syfy Channel last fall; looks pretty cool.
You can snag yourself a copy on February 2nd.

Teenager Roslyn and her old but faithful dog Shep are out camping when the attacks hit.

Russ Meyer was a breast man, whereas prolific soft-core auteur Tinto Brass was always more of a tush guy, as evidenced by the latest film of his to receive digital treatment, Paprika. This one is a keeper, and will be bought by this guy on February 9th.
A young country girl (voluptuous Deborah Caprioglio) comes to town and takes a job in a brothel in order to help her fiancée get the money to start his own business. In her new found work of pleasure, the innocent girl’s life slowly turns into sleaze and degradation and she becomes a professional prostitute, named “Paprika” a nick-name given to her by the madam of the establishment. Tinto Brass’ personal and faithful adaptation of John Cleland’ ‘Fanny Hill’, is a sexy comedy from the 90s, at the height of his erotic career. Cult Epics presents the US premiere of PAPRIKA in a new High-definition transfer, Uncut and Uncensored version for the first time on Blu-ray & DVD with a newly produced “Featurette” among other bonus features.
