Manhunt Steam Key GLOBAL
2,56 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The game takes place in 2003. In fictional Carcer City, James Earl Cash is awaiting execution by lethal injection. However, after the execution he awakens in abandoned parts of the city, controlled by the gangs.At the insistence of “The Director”, who communicates with him through earpiece, Cash moves through the streets taking on the gang members, as well as private security company enforcers, in an attempt to figure out what is happening and save his family.Gameplay in Manhunt is based on making your way through the streets of Carcer City, stealthily eliminating enemies. The game is divided into 20 levels, here called “scenes”, during which player’s actions are evaluated in a star based system. Stars are awarded for stealthy disposal of enemies, as well as brutality of executions.There are three levels of executions in the game: hasty, which result in quick death of the enemy; violent, which significantly add to the brutality; and gruesome, which turn into full blown gore.Throughout the game, player can use various weapons from standard firearms (which don’t allow executions and kills are not rewarded with stars) to various bladed weapons, baseball bats, wires, ropes, and even plastic bags.Player can replenish their HP by taking painkillers available on each level, and stamina, spent while sprinting, can be replenished by remaining still.DevelopmentThe development of Manhunt began in the 90s. Rockstar North used the RenderWare engine, the same that runs the Grand Theft Auto series. Multiple gaming news outlets ran previews on the game, noting the twisted nature of Manhunt.ReceptionAs a game, Manhunt generally received good reviews, with critics admitting that the nihilism represented by the game was something the industry has never seen before.The game received nomination for the "Console Action Adventure Game of the Year" at the 7th Annual Interactive Achievement Awards, was included in the book “1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die”, published in 2010However Manhunt’s decent success was greatly overshadowed by the controversy it caused. Most of it stemmed from the level of brutality and violence depicted with unparalleled realism. The amount of gore was so substantial, that even some developers working on the game felt uncomfortable with it.The game was banned in New Zealand, and in Germany copies of Manhunt were confiscated for representation of violence and glorification of vigilantism.

No Orchids for Miss Blandish (Limited Edition)
21,49 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

Possibly the most controversial British film ever produced, this lurid crime drama caused an unprecedented storm of controversy upon release: local councils banned it, the Bishop of London denounced it, and MPs demanded an investigation into the BBFC for allowing it to be seen. Based on the notorious novel by James Hadley Chase (which itself was condemned by George Orwell), No Orchids for Miss Blandish is a mixture of sex, violence and immorality, and tells the brutal story of a kidnapped heiress who falls for one of her crazed captors. This fascinating example of British film noir, which the Monthly Film Bulletin described as “the most sickening exhibition of brutality, perversion, sex and sadism ever to be shown on a cinema screen” is now released on UK Blu-ray for the very first time. Extras : High Definition remaster Original mono audio Miss Blandish and the Censor (2019): ex-BBFC examiner Richard Falcon discusses the controversial film's history with the British Board of Film Censors Interview with producer Richard Gordon and actor Richard Neilson (2010, 35 mins): filmed interview with the famed US distributor-producer, and the actor Soldier, Sailor (1945, 51 mins): World War II docudrama, conceived by No Orchids for Miss Blandish’s writer-director St John Legh Clowes Original British and American theatrical trailers Image gallery: on-set and promotional photography New and improved English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing Limited edition exclusive booklet with a new essay by Robert Murphy, analysis of the different versions of the source novel, an extract from an essay on No Orchids for Miss Blandish by George Orwell, news accounts of the controversy surrounding the film’s release, an overview of contemporary critical responses, and film credits UK premiere on Blu-ray Limited Edition of 3,000 copies All extras subject to change

La Grande Bouffe
16,99 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

The most famous film by Italian provocateur Marco Ferreri (Dillinger is Dead), La Grande bouffe was reviled on release for its perversity, decadence and attack on the bourgeoisie yet won the prestigious FIPRESCI prize after its controversial screening at the Cannes Film Festival. Four friends, played by international superstars Marcello Mastroianni (Fellini’s 8½), Michel Piccoli (Belle de jour), Ugo Tognazzi (Barbarella) and Philippe Noiret (Zazie dans le métro) retreat to a country mansion where they determine to eat themselves to death whilst engaging in group sex with prostitutes and a local school teacher (Andréa Ferréol, The Tin Drum), who seems to be up for anything… At once jovial and sinister, the film’s jet-black humour has a further twist as the reputed actors (whose characters use their own names) buck their respectable trend for a descent into fart-filled chaos that delivers a feast for the eyes and mind. SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS: Brand new 2K restoration of the original camera negative High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentation Original French audio (uncompressed PCM on the Blu-ray) Newly translated English subtitles The Farcical Movie – A French television profile of Marco Ferreri from 1975 in which the director discusses, among other things, the influence of Tex Avery, Luis Buñuel and Tod Browning’s Freaks Behind-the-scenes footage of the making of La Grande bouffe, containing interviews with Ferrari and actors Marcello Mastroianni, Michel Piccoli, Ugo Tognazzi and Philippe Noiret Extracts from the television series Couleurs autour d'un festival featuring interviews with the cast and crew recorded during the Cannes Film Festival A visual essay on the film with by Italian film scholar Pasquale Iannone Select scene audio commentary by Iannone News report from the Cannes Film Festival where La Grande bouffe caused a controversial stir, including Ferreri at the press conference Original Trailer Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Gilles Vranckx Booklet featuring new writing on the film by Johnny Mains, illustrated with original archive stills and posters
