'Lilith's Hell' is releasing from from Unearthed Films on October 17, 2017. Just in time for Halloween. You won't want to miss this carnage filled film.
From The Press Release
Two filmmakers enlist the help of famous Italian director Ruggero Deodato (“Cannibal Holocaust”, Jungle Holocaust”, “House on the Edge of the Park”, “Cut and Run”) to shoot a reality-themed horror film.
The chosen location is the hereditary family home of one of the producers. However, it soon becomes apparent that the house is beset with its own horrifying secrets hidden behind the walls.
During the shoot, the cast and crew discover secret chambers and evidence of ritualistic ceremonies invoking the spirit of Lilith; she who was cursed by God for disobeying Adam in the Garden of Eden.
One by one, her evil spirit possesses the women in the house and their only escape is death.
Once unleashed, there »
For most folks, the phrase “cannibal movie” conjures the image of two things: Hannibal Lecter's mask-clad visage, hungry for some liver with chianti and fava beans, or for the more horror-inclined, a horde of amazonian tribesman swarming a ravaged body. Hannibal is the most famous people-eater in the world, and Italian exploitationists like Ruggero Deodato and Joe D’Amato own the genre, but if you dig a little deeper there is so much more gruesome fun to be had. In the name of broadening your horror horizons, I’ve compiled a list of the best alternative … »

Review by Roger Carpenter
In his heyday, director/producer Ovidio Assonitis was affectionately known as “The Rip-Off King” due to his blatant copying of popular, more expensive hit films. Thus, we have Beyond the Door (1974), an Exorcist-style film; Tentacles (1977), a killer octopus film in the vein of Jaws; and even the sequel Piranha II: The Spawning (1981), which he famously directed after firing James Cameron shortly after filming commenced. Always on the lookout for the next big idea in exploitation, it isn’t surprising that he would also jump on the slasher bandwagon as well. Madhouse is Assonitis’ entry into that particular subgenre of film.
Though produced in late 1980 or early 1981 in Savannah, Georgia, Madhouse wasn’t released stateside until 1983. So while the film bears more than a passing resemblance to the classic slasher Happy Birthday to Me (also made in 1981), it is unclear how much of a direct rip-off one film is of the other. »

“You don’t have to have a true story to make a true story movie.”
Noah Hawley’s acclaimed midwestern crime anthology Fargo returns to FX this week, along with my enthusiasm for saying oh yah and you betcha to anyone with the gall to speak to me when I would rather be watching Fargo. In my defence there are not one, but two, gloriously bad Ewan McGregor wigs. Truly, Hawley is doing the Lord’s work. Season three is set in the not too distant past of 2010, and follows the tried-and-true template of a ridiculously stacked ensemble of endearing (and woefully misguided) ne’er do wells gradually bungling their way into a shit show of their own design. As with each of the previous installments, least of all the Coen Brothers’ original 1996 film, the opening of this week’s episode features the following superimposed text:
