Fresh from a 4K restoration, 1987’s Stagefright is the latest addition to Shameless Films’ sleazy sensations. Pictured on the front cover is the Night Owl wielding a chainsaw, but make no mistake - this isn’t Peter Gabriel in Genesis, but instead a psychotic killer with a theatre production at his whim.
The Ringmaster is horror, pure horror. All the way from beautiful Denmark, a film which predominantly features in a gas station, the most grotesque and despicable elements of human life are presented explicitly, unbearably so.
In a film that opens with a family of four running through the woodland, away from armed soldiers, knowing that their doom most likely awaits… would you expect that same film to feature a chainsaw vs. meat hook battle over diamond theft in Turkey?
