Web of the Spider

Within this web lies the ultimate horror.

An intrepid reporter by the name of Alan Foster (Anthony Franciosa, TENEBRE) accepts a wager from Edgar Allan Poe (Klaus Kinski, NOSFERATU THE VAMPIRE) and his companion, Thomas Blackwood, to spend a single night in the reputedly haunted Blackwood Castle on All Souls Eve. Shortly after settling into the spooky abode, the reporter meets the beautiful Elisabeth Blackwood (Michele Mercier, BLACK SABBATH), and begins to witness ghostly phenomena and visitations from beyond the grave, as an assortment of specters relive the last moments before their ghastly murders. Soon, Foster realizes that the damned spirits of Blackwood Castle require human blood to continue their unnatural existence!

One of the last Italian gothic horror films, WEB OF THE SPIDER is a color remake of 1964’s CASTLE OF BLOOD, also directed by Antonio Margheriti, under the anglicized alias Anthony M. Dawson.  Previously only available in the US in a cropped television master, Garagehouse Pictures is pleased to finally offer this Euro-horror classic in HD for the first time ever, fully restored and mastered from an uncut domestic theatrical negative in its original 2.35:1 widescreen aspect ratio!

The Dismembered

Dismembered blu ray cover

 

Garagehouse Pictures releases a lost regional horror-comedy, unseen for over 50 years!

After a daring jewelry heist, a trio of thieves hold up in an old dark house inhabited by a motley bunch of restless ghosts that only want to dispatch their new guests in the most horrible manner possible – that is if they can get to them before the spirits of an unruly group of dismembered corpses from the nearby cemetery!

This unusual regional horror-comedy, directed by Ralph S. Hirshorn, was filmed in Philadelphia, PA in 1962, and makes its debut on home video for the first time ever on a fully restored Blu-ray mastered in 4K from the director’s only surviving 16mm print.

THE DISMEMBERED (aka. OSWALD, YOU BOTCHED IT AGAIN) plays like a cross between Roger Corman and Casper the Friendly Ghost, and evokes the era of American International Pictures and the independent drive-in “B” movie.
