Manufacturer: Cult Epics
ANGST, photographed by legendary Oscar-winning Polish animator/experimentalist Zbig Rybczynski and scored by Krautrock synth god Klaus Schulze (Tangerine Dream), is one hell of a gorgeously stylized and shockingly visceral experience: a forgotten classic on the fringes of the slasher cycle.Â Erwin Leder (Das Boot, Schindler's List) plays a maniacal killer based on the real-life serial murderer Werner Kniesek. As he stalks through the bland Viennese countryside, Schulze's music pulses darkly, and Zbig's innovative first-person camerawork grabs you by the throat, never letting go. Angst is one film that, without any empty hyperbole, we can guarantee you'll never, ever forget.Cult Epics presents for the first time since its original release, the Uncut, Uncensored (optically restored tunnel murder-scene) version in HD, with painstaking bonus features; including a new Interview with Erwin Leder, and Audio Commentary and an Interview with director Gerald Kargl conducted by Jorg Buttgereit (Nekromantik) and an Introduction by Gasper NoÃ© (director of Irreversible, Enter The Void, Love), who cited Angst as an influence, â€˜one that I have watched more than 40 timesâ€™.

The Escapees [Blu-ray]
Manufacturer: Redemption Films Brand: KINO INTERNATIONAL
Jean Rollin's THE ESCAPEES revisits the director's fascination with pairs of women who wander, dreamlike, through a modern dystopia (Requiem for a Vampire, Two Orphan Vampires). Two female patients one rebellious (Laurence Dubas), the other despondent (Christiane CoppÃ©) flee the grounds of a mental hospital and drift across the French countryside. After finding refuge among a band of gypsy-like exotic dancers, they cross paths with a petty criminal (Marianne Valiot), an aging fortune-teller (Louise Dhour) and a quartet of swingers (including Brigitte Lahaie) with sinister intentions. Punctuated by moments of unexpected violence and lyrical beauty (as when the emotionless Marie returns to life in a vacant ice rink), THE ESCAPEES is among Rollin's most personal films, and has been remastered in HD from the original 35mm negative. Special Features: Mastered in HD from the original 35mm negative, French with optional English subtitles, One Day in Paris: An Interview with Jean Rollin (2008, 28 min.)

One Deadly Summer - Blu-Ray Edition
Manufacturer: Bayview Entertainment Brand: BAYVIEW/WIDOWMAKER
First time on Blu-ray! Isabelle Adjani (Queen Margot, Camille Claudel, Diabolique) stars in this Jean Becker (Children of the Marshland, Conversations with My Gardener) directed tale of misunderstanding, obsession, and madness that's in the tradition of Swimming Pool and Open Your Eyes. Eliane (Isabelle Adjani), a beautiful young woman, settles into a small town in the south of France with her introverted mother and physically handicapped father. Traumatized by her knowledge that her mother was raped by three men before she was born, Eliane thinks she's on a trail of vengeance when she's courted by a young garage mechanic (Alain Souchon), whose father has the only clue to the identity of her mother's aggressors. But as the story unfolds in Rashomon-like flashbacks and narrations, the tale becomes increasingly complex and leads inexorably to a stunning conclusion. One Deadly Summer (L'ete Meurtrier) was the winner of 4 Cesar Awards, including Best Actress for Isabelle Adjani. Newly-remastered in high definition! In French with English subtitles. Bonus features include: 1983 Cannes Film Festival Interview with Isabelle Adjani, vintage interview with director Jean Becker, 2007 interview with director Jean Becker, Original Trailer, Still photo gallery.
