Taeter City: City of Cannibals from Widowmaker
The futuristic metropolis of Taeter City is managed by The Authority – a dictatorship that rules with an iron fist. Utilizing a special radio wave system called Zeed, The Authority is able to distinguish criminals from law-abiding citizens; however these special radio waves also alter the demented brain waves of the criminals and force them to commit suicide in horrible ways. A special police force called The Bikers then retrieves their corpses and delivers them to massive slaughterhouses that supply the mega fast food chains with the human flesh products that are needed to feed the hungry masses. The Authority’s hand has managed to keep the citizens under control for quite some time, but a series of unforeseen chaotic events has slowly been undermining their rule. Follow along with the adventures of the three crazy Biker officers who are charged with restoring order before their entire world crumbles around them.
TAETER CITY comes from the creators of the cult hit ”Adam Chaplin” and is a marvelous bizarre throwback/mash-up of Manga, 80’s-style cannibal movie shocks,Terminator-type action thrills, and Blade Runner-inspired science fiction politics. Plus it includes plenty of blood. Starring Monica Munoz, Riccardo Valentini, Christian Riva, Wilmar Zimosa, Ortaez Santiago, Produced By Necrostorm, Written & Directed By Giulio De Santi.

Black Sunday (1960) from Kino Lorber
When Mario Bava’s groundbreaking Black Sunday was introduced to the U.S. market, American International Pictures retooled the film for the release. In addition to being redubbed in English, the film was given a new musical score and re-edited. In one of the most auspicious directorial debuts in movie history, Mario Bava bridged the gap between the gothic horror picture and the European art film with Black Sunday (aka La maschera del demonio or The Mask of Satan). Made in 1960 and now considered a cult classic, it continues to reverberate through the cinema, inspiring and influencing new generations of filmmakers. In an absolutely mesmerizing performance, Black Sunday stars Barbara Steele as Asa Vajda, a beautiful woman tortured and executed as a witch but not before pronouncing a curse upon those who have condemned her, a curse that is fulfilled 200 years later.
Special Features: Mastered in HD from original 35mm elements, Mario Bava theatrical trailers
