    When these guys have their sales, (I'm guessing the next one is Halloween) what the basic discount? If a Blu is $20 now what is it during their sales and is it on everything except pre-orders?

    I'm looking to get stuff like Panic Beats, Blood Spattered Bride and BloodLust which you can get for like $50 shipped from DeepDiscount or $66 right now from Mondo's site.

    I almost forgot that today was the day to order Frenchman's Garden! Just kind of occurred to me as I was looking at my credit card statement for the month. Ordered!

    I did forget until I jumped on Horrordvds. The prices keep going up. Over $32 each after shipping and tax.

    That's cheap (compared to what I have to pay)! For us in Canada who have to pay extra in shipping and exchange rate these work out to about $44 each.

    Back to my sale question - can anyone tell me how much they typically knock their Blu’s down to?

    I don't believe they lower their blu-rays below the $20.00 price point. Typically you can get them a little cheaper during Deep Discount sales as well as Amazon if you keep an eye out.

    The special editions will sell out at full price well before any sales take place.

    Both of the BDs that I got from the sale back in October are $20 now on the site but I got one for $14 and the other for $15. The cheaper one (A Lizard in a Woman’s Skin) was a bit older than the $15 one (The Inheritors).

    That’s amazing. See, if I owned a company like Mondo Bizarro I would keep all of the #1s as my own personal copies.

    That is what Tim League (founder of the Alamo Draft House theaters) did. He kept low number copies of the posters they produced. He made a killing when he sold a huge amount of them last December.

    ***NEW TITLE ANNOUNCEMENT***

    Coming next year from Mondo Macabro!

    A new 4K restoration of Rinse Dream’s “DR. CALIGARI” (1989) debuts at Fantasia International Film Festival

    In 1989, Stephen Sayadian, aka Rinse Dream, released one of the most iconic and fantastical works in American exploitation cinema. For the first time since its release, thanks to a new restoration, it will finally find its audience, and retroactively be appreciated as the underground masterpiece that it is. Bizarre, stunning, goofy and unsettling, DR. CALIGARI embraces the avant-garde in its exquisite and hilarious exploitation of America’s repressed libido. As the film’s title might suggest, the film is a loose remake of the German Expressionist classic, following Mrs. Van Houten, a woman who seems to be losing touch with reality, and her treatment under Dr. Caligari, who diagnoses her with a “disease of the libido”. Far more than just narratively similar, Sayadian's background in set design and art keeps with the silent classic's highly stylized design, updated with the bright, disorienting commercialism of 1980s Americana. DR. CALIGARI might be one of the American cinema's most incisive and unique portraits of national excess ever to grace the screen.

    Above all else, though, the film has a biting and over-the-top sense of humour. The dialogue is ripe with delicious one-liners (“My feelings are like filthy prayers I want to scream into your face”) and incredible visual gags. In just the first few minutes of the film, we get the first visual joke as SMPTE colour bars slowly peel away to reveal a naked woman lounging on a couch. Aware that some omniscient force is exposing her nudism, she tries to hide behind the disappearing bars. In rare exploitation form, DR. CALIGARI maintains its wild and intoxicating energy throughout, pulling the audience deep into its erotic nightmare world, in an experience not soon to be forgotten. – Justine Smith

    Dr. Caligari presented by Mondo Macabro
    Restoration by Acid Pictures
    Restoration supervisor: Wojtek Janio
    Colorist: Gosia Grzyb
    Restoration producer: Daniel Bird

    The original camera negative was scanned using a Lasergraphics Director 4K and was graded in consultation with director Stephen Sayadian.

    ***FIRST NEW TITLE ANNOUNCEMENT! ON SALE AUGUST 12th!!***

    A truly bizarre marvel of Spanish exploitation/sci-fi/whatever, HUMAN ANIMALS!


    “Two men… one woman… and a dog. It’s the end of the world.”

    Set in the aftermath of a cataclysmic nuclear war that has destroyed most of the world’s population, Human Animals tells of three survivors - one woman and two men - who wake up on a strange, deserted landscape with no memory of their past lives and without the ability to even speak. The woman and one of the men appear to be brother and sister and are both dressed in formal party clothes. The man is very different - a mustachioed, leather-jacketed macho type.

    They trio set off to explore their new home and find a rocky beach where they come under attack from a huge army of crabs. The macho man fights off the crabs, crushing them with rocks before eating their soft flesh. He then turns his attention to the woman and makes violent love to her while her brother looks on, powerless to stop them.

    A huge dog appears and leads them over the mountains to a lush jungle paradise. They build a hut and learn to make fire and hunt for food. But soon violence, jealousy and above all sex, rear their ugly heads. The men fight one another for possession of the woman. But then, to their horror they discover that the large, and now vicious, dog has also set his sights on her. Soon there really is trouble in paradise.

    Certainly, one of the most unusual films ever released by Mondo Macabro, HUMAN ANIMALS is a total one-off. You REALLY have never seen anything like this before.

    ***2nd NEW TITLE ANNOUNCEMENT! ON SALE AUGUST 12th!!***

    One of the roughest Eurotrash movies you'll ever see! David Hemmings stars in the sweaty and sleazy IT'S NOTHING MAMA, JUST A GAME aka BEYOND EROTICA!


    In this controversial Spanish film from 1974, David Hemmings plays Juan, a young Hacienda-owner who abuses women due to his traumatic upbringing. His late father was a sadistic tyrant who treated the women who worked on his estates as his personal property. After his father’s death, Juan begins to act out his own fantasies. His favorite “game” is to have the women dress in rabbit fur bikinis while he chases them through the jungle on horseback with a pack of dogs.

    One day his latest plaything gets caught in a trap and is savaged to death by the dogs. The local people know what’s going on but are powerless to stop it as their livelihood depends on work from the estate. Juan’s mother, Louise, played by Alida Valli, tries to find a suitable replacement for the dead girl. But Juan has his eyes set on Lola, the beautiful daughter of the estate supervisor. When Lola turns him down, Juan imprisons the girl in an abandoned horse training yard and sets to work breaking down her resistance. But things do not work out the way he planned.

    ***FINAL NEW TITLE ANNOUNCEMENT! ON SALE AUGUST 12th!!***

    Tomas Milian and Pierre Clémenti star in the quasi-giallo Italian cult classic THE DESIGNATED VICTIM!


    Stefano, a partner in a company that makes high-end commercials, wants to sell up his share of the business and move to South America with his girlfriend, Fabienne. However his wife, in whose name the shares are registered, won’t agree to the sale. Stefano goes to Venice with Fabienne for the weekend to escape his worries. There he meets the mysterious Count Tiepelo. Hearing of Stefano’s business problems the Count tells him about his own brother who is making his life miserable. The Count then makes a startling suggestion – that he will kill Stefano’s wife if Stefano kills the Count’s brother. More amused than shocked, Stefano laughs off the idea.

    Then one day Stefano receives a phone call from the police; his wife had been found strangled and he is the prime suspect. From that moment on Stefano’s life becomes a living nightmare as he discovers the true extent of the web the Count has woven around him. Finally, for Stefano, there is only one way out.
    With astonishing performances from Tomas Milian and Pierre Clementi, and settings that include a mist-wreathed Venice, a magnificent Lake Como villa and the glitzy world of advertising, THE DESIGNATED VICTIM is a gripping, dream-like thriller that take us on a trip to hell as Stefano is driven to the very edge of insanity.
