REMEMBER POWERHOUSE FILMS?

So earlier today I was in my local CEX store having a browse and chanced upon a couple of releases by Powerhouse Films (Indicator). I recalled mentioning them before so checked on Severed Cinema. Wow, the last time I had a look at their website was back in 2017! A lot of cult and little known titles have popped out from them since then. They are really cornering the UK market in terms of discovering forgotten and overlooked films.

For instance, Absolution, starring Richard Burton and Billy Connelly. Now, I remember this one playing regularly on the Deadly Ernest Horror Show back in the '80s. I own it on old ex-rental VHS and it is a classic Catholic murder yarn. Then we have A Severed Head from 1971, which (aside from the eye-catching cover) is noticeable for being a dark sexual satire set in the '60s and starring Ian Holm and Richard Attenborough. I have to mention how both blu-rays have a abundance of interviews, extras and a booklet.

Speaking of extras, Night of the Demon comes packed with endless essays, pieces and interviews, as does the boxset William Castle at Columbia Vol 1. Meanwhile, look out for numerous Hammer and Ray Harryhausen sets flooding out from them.

Powerhouse Films latest titles include Oliver Reed's The Triple Echo and A Girl Like You, then coming soon is the crime thriller Bellman and True from 1987, plus Nicholas Roeg's Track 29, starring Gary Oldman and Christopher Lloyd.
