Kinky classic Fairy Tales (1978), starring “Scream Queen” Linnea Quigley in her first feature role, sees fairy tale characters Little Bo Peep, Old King Cole, Little Tommy Tucker, Snow White, and many others all grown up – embarking in dance, lust, and romance in a land where everything is possible and clothing is optional!
Restored from its original 35mm negative, and released on Blu-ray August 18 with spiffy new cover art, Fairy Tales is a titillating delight from the legendary Charles Band (Cinderella).
Linnea Quigley, Don Sparks, Sy Richardson, Brenda Fogarty, and Martha Reeve star in a Harry Hurwitz film.
Worship Jess Franco’s “Nunsploitation” classic “The Jess Franco Collection Vol. 6 : Love Letters of a Portuguese Nun” (1977) when it’s sworn onto DVD August 18.
Released as part of Full Moon’s ongoing “Jess Franco Collection”, this is the uncut and uncensored version of “Love Letters of a Portuguese Nun” struck from legendary exploitation film producer Erwin C. Dietrich’s brand new master.
16-year-old Maria is forced into Serra D’Aires convent, secretly run by Satanists. Her confessor is in collusion with the Mother Superior. Maria is tortured, forced into sex with men, women, and the horned Devil, and told that it’s all a bad dream. She writes a letter to God, and a Knight rescues her, only to fall into the hands of the Inquisition, put on the rack, and condemned to death like Joan of Arc.
Susan Hemingway, William Berger, Herbert Fux and Ana Zanatti star in a movie so confronting that censorship bans prevented its release for two years.
The other releases in the Jess Franco Collection can be purchased at Full Moon Direct. Collecting the entire series of Franco films will result in the building of an exclusive Jess Franco painting on the spines of the DVDs.
Fairy Tales and The Jess Franco Collection Vol. 6 Love Letters of a Portuguese Nun ‘release’ August 18.

He’s the original party animal, inviting you to come along and die laughing — just like everybody else.
The Sorority Babes won’t live through initiation, but don’t blame that cute little killer. He’s evil by nature and funny as hell. And even if you can take a joke, it kills you.
To wrap up this huge month, Full Moon will release Hollywood Horror House, one of a 20 part series coming to FullMoonDirect.com with an amazing intro by film historian David DelValle!
By 1970, the once golden age of Hollywood glamour and stardom was a tragic last hurrah represented by the decayed and deteriorated Hollywood Sign. In HOLLYWOOD HORROR HOUSE, we’ll go below the sign, to a decaying hilltop mansion of a once great star, played by a once great star, Miriam Hopkins. The fabled Ms. Hopkins, toast of the town back in the thirties with box office hits like Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde and Becky Sharpe, was an A-list actress and Oscar nominee.
Another Oscar winner (Best Supporting Actress 1936) Gale Sondergaard plays Miss Hopkins’ loyal friend and housekeeper, who tries to save her friend from the handsome stranger, played by son of acting legend John Garfield. He may be the culprit littering the land around the Hollywood sign with hacked up body parts.
This hellish time capsule showcasing late 60s/early 70s Hollywood, remains an early example of the slasher films which would follow in just a few years. See Miriam Hopkins trapped in a madhouse of hacked up blood-splattered bodies, tripped out drug sequences, murder by electric knives and a Hollywood Christmas Parade with a drunk out of control movie star as its Grand Marshall.
HOLLYWOOD HORROR HOUSE is the last death rattle of the Horror Hag craze that began with Better Davis feeding dead rats to Joan Crawford in Whatever Happened To Baby Jane. Just as Bette sang “I’ve written a letter to daddy’ in that film, listen to Miriam sing the hell out of “Taking a chance on love.”
Witness that demented slice of cinema best described as a motel six version of PSYCHO…you have been warned!
“Here’s a deliriously entertaining mixture of SUNSET BOULEVARD and Herschell Gordon Lewis Movies, not to be missed.” — The Bloody Pit of Horror
Uncork’d Entertainment has acquired US and Canadian rights to the horror-thriller The Shelter, with both a theatrical and digital release planned for the fall.
Written & directed by John Fallon and produced by Fallon and Donny Broussard, The Shelter stars Michael Paré (Eddie and the Cruisers, The Virgin Suicides) in one of his most acclaimed performances in recent times.
Scream Horror Magazine says Paré “steals each and every scene” while Aint it Cool News says he “really gives it his all here, plunging to emotional depths I never thought he was able to do”.
Gayle James, Rachel Whittle, Amy Wickenheiser and Daena Turner co-star in “the smart man’s horror film” (Icons of Fright).
“I’m very pleased to be partnering with John and Berge to introduce The Shelter to U.S. and Canadian audiences,” says Uncork’d Entertainment President Keith Leopard. “Michael [Paré] is superb in the lead role – we’re anticipating some great notices on his turn here.”
“It was very important for me to find a domestic distributor that understood The Shelter for what it was and that wouldn’t try to rework it into something that it wasn’t,” says Writer/Director John Fallon. “I thankfully found that in Uncork’d Entertainment and I am beyond elated to move forward with them on the picture!”
In The Shelter, widower and homeless man Thomas Jacobs (Michael Paré) finds shelter for the night when he falls upon a vast two-story house with the lights on and an inviting open front door. He strolls on in thinking he just caught a lucky break and for a while, it would appear as though he did. But soon enough, he realizes that the house won’t let him leave, as its doors are all locked while its windows cannot be opened or broken. Destiny has brought Thomas to this place. What does it want from him? Will he survive the ordeal?
Of his role, Paré said “The Shelter tells a great and painful tragedy, not about global disaster or war or economic collapse but of the individual human heart. The human heart and soul is what all art seeks to unravel. Guilt, regret and shame kill the heart and soul. When our lower animal nature dominates our character our soul is lost.”
With visual effects by Thomas Wilson (Insidious, The Conjuring), The Shelter was executive produced by Bruise Productions and JoBlo Movie Productions. Holbrook Multi Media completed the production and post-production elements.
Uncork’d Entertainment’s current releases include Restoration, Decay, A Haunting in Cawdor and All Girls Weekend, released in July.
Double your freaky fun with Frank Henenlotter’s BASKET CASE 2 and BASKET
CASE 3: THE PROGENY on Blu-ray this August from Synapse Films!
1982’s BASKET CASE introduced horror fans to Duane Bradley and his twin
brother Belial, and a new horror classic was born. They also introduced
the world to Frank Henenlotter, the uniquely crazed talent who would
later give us BRAIN DAMAGE and FRANKENHOOKER. In 1990 and ‘91,
Henenlotter and star Kevin Van Hentenryck returned for two even more
demented sequels, both coming to Blu-ray from Synapse Films this August,
each at the low price of $19.95!
BASKET CASE 2
“BASKET CASE 2 is a hilarious genre spoof… paying homage to Tod
Browning’s 1932 classic, FREAKS.” – Variety
Duane Bradley and his surgically-separated twin brother Belial return in
this frightfully gory follow-up to Frank Henenlotter’s original monster
movie classic, BASKET CASE. After surviving a fall from a hospital
window, the two brothers become media targets. Duane’s aunt, Granny Ruth
(played by world-famous Jazz singer Annie Ross), whisks the duo away to
a secluded mansion, where other freaks-in-hiding live out their days
away from public scrutiny. When a snooping tabloid reporter finds the
location of the mutants, Duane and his new family must stand together to
keep their freedom a secret. And, in all the chaos, Belial might
actually find true love!
Synapse Films is proud to present BASKET CASE 2 in a beautiful
high-definition transfer from the original 35mm camera negative

Van Hentenryck), Belial finds out he’s going to be a deformed daddy!
Mrs. Belial (“Eve”, played by Denise Coop) delivers a litter of bouncing
baby monsters, but the blessed event turns into a nightmarish ordeal
when the police kidnap the little critters. They should know it’s not
safe to anger Belial! Attacking the cops in a climactic, gory rampage,
everyone’s favorite mutant mauler stops at nothing to get his newborns

DELIRIUM magazine reunites FANGORIA creative team of Chris Alexander, Michael Gingold and Bill Mohalley!
For immediate release:
Full Moon and Empire Pictures legend Charles Band’s DELIRIUM Magazine, the celebrated (and decidedly R rated) horror and exploitation film culture periodical is on the cusp of releasing its 11th issue, an incredible salute to beloved actress Barbara Crampton (RE-ANIMATOR, FROM BEYOND, WE ARE STILL HERE). The magazine features an exclusive and original cover photo and 4 posters shot and designed by noted LA based photographer Ama Lea, featuring Crampton as a vampire goddess, styled after Delphine Seyrig’s Countess Bathory in Harry Kumel’s 1971 classic DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS.
As many fans know DELIRIUM is co-founded and edited by ex-FANGORIA editor and filmmaker Chris Alexander. But Alexander is not the only storied monster magazine alumnus involved in DELIRIUM’s production and artistic vision.
Recently it was announced that veteran designer W.R. “Bill” Mohalley along with long-time editor Michael Gingold were dismissed from FANGORIA, leading to many in the fan community – including filmmaker Guillermo del Toro – to publicly mourn the loss of their talents. Mohalley (whose career spans back to the early 70s, working on mags like VAMPIRELLA, CREEPY and FAMOUS MONSTERS) has in fact been involved with the design of DELIRIUM since day one and now has come on board as their full time art director.
Gingold has joined DELIRIUM as an associate editor and contributor.
“I’m very excited to be continuing to work with the same creative team that I’ve been with for these past 6 years,” says Alexander.
“DELIRIUM is a product we’re all very proud of. I admire Bill’s work and work ethic immensely and we have shorthand between us, a relationship that works. That’s evident in DELIRIUM’s pages. It’s also great to have Mike involved now as well. These two legends of fan mag history don’t do this stuff because they want to…they do it because they have to. It’s their life’s work. It’s my hope that Mike and Bill not only continue to help make DELIRIUM better and better in the issues to come, but also get out there and continue working in all manner of print media. They’re talented and professional, a rare combo in this over-saturated media age.”
Outside of Alexander, Mohalley and Gingold helping shape DELIRIUM, the magazine is also home to a wealth of talent, including associate editor and writer Jason Bene (FANGORIA, GOREZONE, Killer Film) artist Brian Steward (FANGORIA, SCREAM Magazine), author Lee Gambin (FANGORIA), Justin Beahm (FANGORIA, Famous Monsters), film historian David del Valle, Trevor Parker (FANGORIA, ShockTillYouDrop.com), adult film star Tanya Tate and of course, Band himself to name only a few.
