Effects (1980)

Starring:

Tom Savini, Joe Pilato, John Harrison

Synopsis:

Cobbled together with loose change by George Romero’s friends, Effects is a mesmerizing D.I.Y. frightmare that no one talks about, but everyone should. A group of coked-up filmmakers — including Tom Dawn Of The Dead Savini, Joe Day Of The Dead Pilato, and John Tales From The Darkside: The Movie Harrison — gather in Pittsburgh to make a slasher. As filming begins and accidents happen, it’s clear that something isn’t right. And no one can be trusted. Landing somewhere between SNUFF and a student film by John Carpenter, Effects is a meta-enhanced takedown on the philosophy of horror that doubles as a sleazy and terrifying movie on its own.

Society (1989) (Limited Edition Steelbook)

Starring:

Billy Warlock, Devin DeVasquez, Evan Richards

Synopsis:

After producing Stuart Gordon’s hit Re-Animator, Brian Yuzna (Bride of Re-Animator, Return of the Living Dead III) turned his hand to directing with 1989’s Society, and gave birth to one of the ickiest, most original body horror shockers of all time.

Teenager Bill Whitney (Billy Warlock) has always felt like the odd one out in his wealthy, upper-class Beverly Hills family. For some reason, he just doesn’t seem to fit in. But his sense of alienation takes a sinister turn when he hears an audio recording of his sister s coming-out party, which seems to implicate his family and others in a bizarre, ritualistic orgy. And then there are the strange things he’s been seeing glimpses of people with their bodies contorted impossibly out of shape… Is Bill going mad or is there something seriously amiss in his neighborhood?

Packing stomach-churning grue and thought-provoking social commentary in equal measure, Society is a biting horror satire which culminates in one of the most gag-inducing climaxes in all of horror history.

With mom on the loose, Dr. Linda (Rachael Harris), who’s become not only a therapist, but also a confidante to Lucifer, Amenadiel and Maze, will surely have a lot of advice to dole out.
