Umbrella Entertainment announces July new releases
Australia’s own Umbrella Entertainment have announced their new Blu-ray releases for July. Below is the lineup.
Hobo with a Shotgun (Beyond Genres #19)
Moving from town to town, a ragged vagabond ends up in the criminal haven known as Hope Town. Run by the sadistic crime lord, Drake, and his equally brutal sons, Ivan and Slick, the God-forsaken city is rife with the scum of the Earth, who run rampant, of course, with the blessing of the corrupt local police. Under those circumstances, the disgusted nameless drifter decides to take matters into his own hands, and clean up the streets of the Drake infection. Now, his high-power, 20-gauge shotgun becomes the messenger of destruction and change. Who can stand in the way of the hobo’s rightful, pump-action retribution?

Elaine, a beautiful young witch, is determined to find a man to love her. In her gothic Victorian apartment she makes spells and potions, and then picks up men and seduces them. However, her spells work too well, leaving her with a string of hapless victims. When she finally meets the man of her dreams, her desperation to be loved will drive her to the brink of insanity and murder. With a visual style that pays tribute to Technicolor thrillers of the 60’s, THE LOVE WITCH explores female fantasy and the repercussions of pathological narcissism.

As a child, Jonathan (Peter Liapis) was almost killed by his father, Malcolm (Michael Des Barres), during a satanic ritual. After being saved and raised by Wolfgang (Jack Nance), who has kept him unaware of his background, Jonathan inherits Malcolm’s house and moves in with girlfriend Rebecca (Lisa Pelikan). Through his explorations of the house, he begins unlocking the secrets and latent powers contained within his new found home. But there are other dark powers at work in the house powers more terrifying, more hideous than anything you’ve ever seen. It is foretold that Evil will triumph and Ghoulies will walk the earth…
The Ghoulies are back and more devilish than ever, as they turn an unsuspecting carnival into a house of pandemonium in this wildly outrageous sequel to the original smash hit “Ghoulies”! “Satan’s Den” has received its final warning either the not-so-creepy House of Horrors spooks-up its act and scares some customers fast or its gateway to hell will be closed for eternity. Just when Larry Prentice (Damon Martin) and his uncle Ned (Royal Dano) think there’s not a ghost of a chance that the’ll save their show, they get some uninvited visitors to spice things up. The Ghoulies make “Satan’s Den” their home and profits soar as the demonic little creatures wreak havoc on the helpless fairground. So take a ride on the Ghoulie-Go-Round and play some Bumper Ghoulies – enjoy yourself because the Ghoulies will always get you in the end!
