I, the Executioner - I, the Executioner(Blu Ray)

I, the Executioner arrived to me as a promo disc, so I can’t describe the accompanying booklet, nor the packaging which I guarantee you will be in line with Radiance’s high standards. I was perhaps late to Radiance, but they’ve been steadily releasing some real gems, smartly designed and padded with interesting extras. I’d never heard of this film before Radiance added it to their catalogue, but it’s a very worthy addition and one with historical and aesthetic value.


Death To Dynamics - Asunder

Asunder is a rattling ‘n’ rickety take on the walled noise from UK’s Death To Dynamics. The single thirty-two-minute ‘wall’ feels booth crudely aged and worn down in its attack- with the whole thing nicely set out into an entrancing-if-slightly wavering/ loose flow.


The Church - The Church( UHD, Blu Ray, CD)

The Church is a late 80’s Italian horror film that blends the atmospheric and gothic with the gorily creative and brutally deranged. The film shifts from the medieval times to the then present day- being largely set/ focused around a huge church built on the burial ground of the damned dead. Here from Severin is a classy three-disc set, taking in a UHD disc, a region A Blu-Ray, and a CD soundtrack. The release features a wonderful bold & well-defined print, hours of extras, a colour inlay booklet, and a glossy card slip.


The Case Of The Bloody Iris - The Case Of The Bloody Iris( Blu Ray)

From the early 1970s, The Case Of The Bloody Iris is a fairly cliched, though entertaining enough Giallo. It features the king & queen of the genre Edwige Fenech & George Hilton, a handful of murders carried out by gloved/ black masked killer, a splattering of female nudity, and a score by Bruno Nicolai- which shifts between the memorable bounding and eerier. Here from Celluloid Dreams is a double-disc UHD/Blu-Ray disc of the release of the film. Featuring a nicely bold & clean 4k scan, a commentary track, and a few other extras.


Tormented - Tormented( Blu Ray)

Tormented is a cheap, cheerful, and cheesy blend of thriller and horror genres- regarding an ageing playboy/ light jazz pianist who is due to get married, but is literally haunted/ being pestered by the spirit of one of his X’s. The films from the early ’60s, though feels way more from the 50’s- with its tone/set-up, and brief brushes of noir in its make-up. 


Whore's Breath - Root Themselves In The Power Of Place

Root Themselves In The Power Of Place features two examples of textural layered/at-points busy/ detailed walled noise from this Cincinnati, Ohio-based project. Both tracks slide in at around the half-an-hour mark, and both are rather distinctive/ creative in their make-up.
