'Audition: Collector's Edition' -- Shout! Factory is proud to present the 10th anniversary release of Takashi Miike’s cult-horror film Audition. Deceptively innocent at first, the film finds Shigeharu Aoyama (Ryo Ishibashi, Suicide Club, The Grudge), a middle-aged widower of many years, urged by his teenage son and his film producer friend Yasuhisa Yoshikawa (Jun Kunimura, Ichi The Killer) to start dating again. To help Aoyama meet women, Yoshikawa devises a plan to hold a fake audition for a leading lady. Reluctantly agreeing, Aoyama auditions 30 young hopefuls and falls for the silent beauty of Asami (Eihi Shiina), a former ballerina with a dark past. Their courtship veers from quiet romance to psycho nightmare, realizing “a sadistic breach of contract between filmmaker and audience of which Hitchcock could only dream.” (Richard Falcon, Sight And Sound).
'Forbidden World' -- In the distant future, a federation marshal arrives at a research lab on a remote planet where a monstrous genetic experiment is loose and feeding on the scientists who created it. Enter into the Forbidden World - an outrageous, sexy and violent exercise in Alien-like terror!
'Galaxy Of Terror' -- When a team of astronauts land on a strange planet to rescue a stranded space ship, they are soon attacked by alien creatures - physical manifestations of fears projected by their own imaginations.
'Humanoids From The Deep' -- A race of scientifically created half-human, half-salmon monstrosities lay siege to a Pacific Northwest fishing village. In horrific fashion, the mutated creatures kill the men and mate with the women in order to reproduce. Can the Humanoids From the Deep be stopped before they destroy mankind as we know it?
'Piranha' -- Mutant piranha escape from a secret research station and head downriver towards a summer camp and a small town’s lakeside tourist attraction. A gruff loner and a daffy private eye race against time to try to stop the creatures.
'The Stepfather' -- Jerry Blake (Terry O’Quinn, ABC’s Lost) is a man obsessed with having the perfect “American Dream” life — including the house with the white picket fence in the suburbs, complete with an adoring wife and loving children. He believes he’s found it when he marries Susan Maine and becomes the stepfather to Susan’s 16-year-old daughter, Stephanie. But Stephanie gets an uneasy feeling when she is around Jerry with his “Father Knows Best” attitude — she can see that there is a darker side behind his cheerful exterior... Could she just be going through the typical teenager rebellion against her new stepfather, or could he be the same man who brutally murdered his family just one year earlier?
'Kingdom Of The Spiders: Special Edition' -- William Shatner stars as veterinarian “Rack” Hansen in this 1977 classic creepshow about an Arizona town infested with a horde of arachnids that turn on humans whose insecticides have depleted their normal food supply.
'The Lost Skeleton Returns Again' -- Fun and over-the-top sequel to 2001’s The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra which brilliantly spoofed sci-fi movies of the 50’s. It’s two years later in the Amazon jungle: Old friends and new enemies schlep into the dreaded Valley of the Monsters in search of yet another rare element. This bigger, better, bonier round two contains some nifty special effects, a dynamic musical score, hilarious performances and trademark loopy dialogue.
'Dark And Stormy Night' -- Set in the 1930s, a family of a deceased rich old man are gathered for the reading of his will in a gloomy old mansion. They soon find themselves being murdered by a mysterious phantom while two rival reporters compete for the story.
'Gamera: The Giant Monster' -- When a plane carrying an atomic bomb crashes over the Arctic Ocean, the explosion unleashes Gamera, a 200-foot-long fire-eating turtle. He is hungry for destruction and not about to be stopped, until he reaches Tokyo, where a small boy forms an odd connection with him, allowing authorities to unleash “Plan Z.”
'Gamera Vs. Barugon' -- When a meteorite crashes into the rocket transporting Gamera back to his home in outer space, the defeated monster escapes and returns to Japan. Not a moment too soon, either, since a band of thieves has inadvertently unleashed the giant lizard Barugon onto civilization. The two monsters battle, and with the help of the Japanese military, Gamera is eventually able to defeat Barugon and save Earth from certain destruction.
