Korean Horror - Essential Collection From Palisades Tartan

Palisades Tartan brings together three Korean chillers as a three-disc collection that includes Kim Sung-ho's Into The Mirror, Park Ki-hyung's Acacia and Won Shin-yeon's The Wig.

Recently given the Hollywood remake treatment as ‘Mirrors', directed by Alexandre Aja (Switchblade Romance; The Hills Have Eyes) and starring Keifer Sutherland, Kim Sung-ho's Into The Mirror is a creepy and highly stylized horror tale involving Wu Young-min, a cop who has quit the police force after inadvertently killing his partner. Now working at a department store, Wu encounters his ex-rival, who is in charge of investigating a series of murders at the store, and finds himself being pulled into the sinister investigation.

Park Ki-hyung's Acacia tells of an obstetrician and his wife who, unable to have a child of their own, decide to adopt a 10-year-old boy, Jin-seung. When the wife later falls pregnant and has a baby, Jin-seung becomes so incensed by jealousy he runs away. During his absence a dead tree in the garden, where he used to play, mysteriously comes to life and fills the house with a heavy scent. Then a variety of strange events begin to occur, all of them seemingly related to the mysterious tree.

Creepy chills meet visceral horror in Won Shin-yeon's beautifully shot The Wig, the tale of Ji-hyeon, a young woman who buys her terminally ill sister a new wig to hide the hair loss resulting from her treatment. After her sister starts making an alarming comeback in mental health to the point of being hostilely aggressive and overbearingly sexual, Ji-hyeon soon discovers the disturbing truth about the history of the wig.

Three Classic Films From Tinto Brass

From the shocking to the sensual the best from the European king of erotica
Tinto Brass is undoubtedly one of the most genuinely erotic filmmakers working in cinema. A household name in his native Italy, where he is known simply as 'Il Maestro', Brass is the acknowledged king of European erotica. Now, Nouveaux Pictures brings together three of Brass' finest works on DVD in The 'Maestro' Presents...Three Classic Films From Tinto Brass, a three-disc boxed set including Salon Kitty, P.O. Box Tinto Brass and The Voyeur

The most shocking and controversial of Brass' films, Salon Kitty presents a serious, unflinching depiction of moral decay within the Nazi Party at the time of World War II, and of how power ultimately leads to corruption. The film is presented here in its fully restored Director's Cut version, completely uncensored and featuring 21 minutes of never-seen-before footage. Boasting superb performances by Helmut Berger (The Godfather Part III; The Damned) and Ingrid Thulin (Cries And Whispers; The Damned; Wild Strawberries), Salon Kitty also features beautiful cinematography and sumptuous sets that provide a stunning showcase for the work of twice Oscar winning production designer Ken Adam (The Madness Of King George; Barry Lyndon), the man responsible for designing the incredible sets for the majority of the James Bond films.

P.O. Box Tinto Brass is a sensational collection of real-life sexual fantasies. A huge theatrical and video hit throughout Europe, it's a sumptuous feast for the eyes and the senses and a breathtaking celebration of female sexuality. Over the years, Tinto Brass has received thousands of unsolicited letters, photos and videos from female fans, all recounting their most intimate sexual fantasies. Here he presents many of these exciting, explicit and uninhibited fantasies on screen, giving the viewer more stunning girls, more thrills, more shocks and more eroticism than ever before in one movie.

Acknowledged as Brass' most explicitly erotic film to date, The Voyeur follows Dodo, a young university professor, as he relives various telling moments of his sex life through a series of erotic flashbacks, trying to understand his wife's absences and bizarre sexual needs. He also observes the nighttime habits of his father and his maid which, although finding them shocking, he cannot resist any more than he can help witnessing the totally liberated dalliances of his dusky student Pascasie.

The three disc box set The 'Maestro' Presents...Three Classic Films From Tinto Brass (cert. 18) will be released on DVD by Nouveaux Pictures on 16th October 2006. Special Features include an exclusive 24-minute interview (in English) with director Tinto Brass and trailers.
