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.

The Horror Collection Vol II: British
12,99 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

Matchbox Films presents 'The Horror Collection Vol II: British' THE MIRROR Jemma Dallender (Community, I Spit on Your Grave 2) stars in Edward Boase's sophomore feature The Mirror, a headline-grabbing British horror triggered by a widely reported news story that set Twitter and Facebook alight in 2013 when an allegedly haunted mirror appeared for sale on eBay. In the film, the three intrepid flatmates (Dallender, Joshua Dickinson, Nate Fallows) who purchased the supposedly haunted antique set up round-the-clock cameras in the hope of capturing evidence of paranormal activity. From footage recovered by police, their terrifying ordeal is slowly pieced together. COMMUNITY The Draymen Estate has become an urban legend. Amongst the sinister stories of unsavoury locals and brutal violence, several people have apparently gone missing. Even the police won't go there. Enter two naive student filmmakers, Isabelle (Dallender) and Will (Jordan), with a well-meaning plan to make a sympathetic documentary of life on the estate. The unlucky duo quickly discovers that problems of drugs and crime in this community go way beyond the norm. This is a community which is about to present the students with material of unimaginable horror - turning their final project into their darkest nightmare. SIREN A group of friends escaping the city for a weekend away have a simple plan, to tour the coast for a relaxing weekend. Things hit a snag when one of the friends spots a seductive, sultry young woman waving for help off the shore of one of many secluded islands along the coast. Reaching out to rescue her turns deadly and they risk everything to get off the island alive.

No Orchids for Miss Blandish (Limited Edition)
20,99 € *

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.

Onibaba - Dual Format Edition (Masters of Cinema)
14,99 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

Kaneto Shindo, one of Japan's most prolific directors, received his biggest international success with the release of Onibaba (The Demoness) in 1964. Its depiction of violence and graphic sexuality was unprecedented at the time of release. Shindo managed - through his own production company Kindai Eiga Kyokai - to bypass the strict, self-regulated Japanese film industry and pave the way for such films as Yasuzo Masumura's Mojuu (1969) and Nagisa Oshima's In the Realm of the Senses (1976). Onibaba (or Onibabaa, in its alternate spelling) is set during a brutal period in history, a Japan ravaged by civil war between rivaling shogunates. Weary from combat, samurai are drawn towards the seven-foot high susuki grass fields to hide and rest themselves, whereupon they are ambushed and murdered by a ruthless mother (Nobuko Otowa) and daughter-in-law (Jitsuko Yoshimura) team. The women throw the samurai bodies into a pit, and barter their armour and weapons for food. When Hachi (Kei Sato), a neighbour returning from the wars, brings bad news, he threatens the women's partnership. Erotically charged and steeped in the symbolism and superstition of its Buddhist and Shinto roots, Kaneto Shindo's Onibaba is in part a modern parable on consumerism, a study of the destructiveness of sexual desire and - filmed within a claustrophobic sea of grass - one of the most striking and unique films of Japan's last half-century, winning Kiyomi Kuroda the Blue Ribbon Award for Cinematography in 1965. The memorably frenetic drumming soundtrack was scored by long-time Shindo collaborator Hikaru Hayashi. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Onibaba for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK. Special Features: Gorgeous New 1080p HD Transfer Full-length Director's Audio Commentary by Director Kaneto Shindo and the Stars of the Film, Kei Sato, and Jitsuko Yoshimura Video Introduction by Alex Cox 8mm Footage (40-minutes) Shot on Location by Lead Actor Kei Sato Optional English Subtitles Original Theatrical Trailer Production Stills and Promotional Art Gallery 36-Page Booklet with a New Essay by Doug Cummings - An English translation of the original short Buddhist fable that inspired the film and a statement from Writer/Director Kaneto Shindo about why he made Onibaba
