From the Press Release
Danger After Dark Releases Suicide Club and Satan Hates You
Danger After Dark is thrilled to announce that the cult-classic, unrated version of Suicide Club is available now to stream and download via Amazon.com, iTunes.com, and TLACult.com. Directed by the prolific Sion Sono (Cold Fish, Love Exposure, Strange Circus) the film has cultivated a rabid, loyal fan base and with it themes of suicide, anti-establishment rebelliousness and nefarious government/cultural witchery, the film is even more relevant than ever.
Suicide Club (Jisatsu Sākuru) aka Suicide Circle Synopsis
Directed by Sion Sono (2002, 100 min., Japanese with English Subtitles)
A wave of unexplainable suicides sweeps across Tokyo after 54 smiling high school girls join hands and throw themselves from a subway platform into an oncoming train. Detective Kuroda (Ryo Ishibashi from Audition) and the rest of the police force are baffled as the bloodbath triggers a wave of suicides across the city. When a cryptic phone call tips off police to a strange website that appears to be tracking the suicides before they happen, the question becomes, are they really suicides at all? This outrageously bizarre, wicked social critique in the form of a creepy and enigmatic detective mystery examines the despair of the disaffected Japanese youth and the influence of pop culture on their lives. From international film festival favorite to cult sensation, Suicide Club is a study of contemporary morality that is gruesome, darkly comic and vividly original.
Also from Danger After Dark, find out why Satan Hates You in the latest gore masterpiece directed by James Felix McKenney and featuring a cavalcade of genre stars including Larry Fessenden (I Sell the Dead), Debbie Rochon (Toxie Twins: Toxic Avenger V), Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes), Angus Scrimm (Phantasm) and Reggie Bannister (Bubba Ho-tep). Buy the DVD or watch online at Amazon.com.

Don’t Open Till Christmas Synopsis
Don’t Open Till Christmas, directed by and starring Edmund Purdom, celebrates Christmas time in London – a season of good will to all men and full of joyous celebrations, quality family time and luxurious presents. This year, it’s also time for a masked maniac to be let loose on the streets. His intended victims are chosen at random but they all have one thing in common: they are dressed in the flowing white beard and bright red robes of Santa Claus! With 14 Santa Clauses already dead and only three killing days left until Christmas, the police are baffled as the horrific death toll continues to rise. From the producers of Pieces and Slaughter High, this rarely-seen flick features very graphic and disturbing violence – including castration, mutilation – and some phenomenal nudity, courtesy of Pat Astley (Mr. Grace’s nurse from Are You Being Served?). Suffice it to say, your holidays will never be the same again!
