CULT OF THE COBRA
While on their last tour of duty in Asia, six American GIs meet a snake charmer in the narrow, incense-filled streets. Thrilled by legends of humans transforming themselves into serpents, the men buy their way into a secret gathering of snake worshippers. But they are discovered, and for defiling the sacred ceremony, the Lamian high priest vows revenge, cursing them with death. Shortly before they are to be discharged, Nick (James Dobson) is killed by a hooded cobra. Back in New York, the five remaining friends return to civilian life. Roomates Tom (Marshall Thompson) and Paul (Richard Long) are both in love with Julia (Kathleen Hughes), and when she chooses Paul, Tom is devastated until he meets exotic Lisa Moya (Faith Domergue), who moves in across the hall. But Lisa's mysterious arrival coincides with some very strange goings-on, as one by one, the former GIs meet with violent, seemingly accidental deaths accompanied by snake-inflicted wounds. Is the beautiful Lisa actually the agent of the high priest's curse? It's up to Paul and Tom to discover the truth before it's too late.

DR. CYCLOPS
Set in the Peruvian jungle, this 1940 landmark science-fiction adventure, directed by pioneering filmmaker Ernest Schoedsack, follows four explorers as they search for legendary physicist Dr. Cyclops. When they discover their missing colleague, they find his brilliant mind has been warped by radiation and decide to return him to civilization for psychiatric help. But the half-blind, half-mad scientist will have none of that, and uses an experimental body-altering device to reduce his former friends to one-fifth their normal size. Now, harmless items and small creatures suddenly become giant-sized instruments of death! The impressive use of special effects, which garnered an Oscar® nomination, helped make this Technicolor sci-fi classic one of the most imaginative and memorable fantasy films of all time.

Known for his lush soft-focus cinematography, iconic British photographer David Hamilton makes his controversial feature film debut with BILITIS (1977).

📀 Pre-order now: https://bit.ly/3N2aB9T

Set in the idyllic French countryside, the film sensually explores a young schoolgirl's awakening to intimacy, romance, and love during her summer vacation. Boasting the filmmaker’s recognisable dreamy style, the “Hamilton blur”, accompanied by the tender music of Oscar-winning composer Francis Lai, BILITIS was both celebrated as art and condemned as pornography. Is it an alluring erotic masterpiece that captured the romantic aesthetic of the time – or “a soft-core artsploitation picture” (The Times)? We’ll let you decide.

Umbrella Entertainment presents Hamilton’s diaphanous images newly restored in High Definition from the original 35mm vault materials archived in France.

In a blu-ray world first, Tom Selleck stars in this rare 80s crime thriller as a jewel thief set in Nazi Germany on the eve of WWII. Produced at the height of Magnum PI, Roger Ebert once wrote "Lassiter is a movie that seems to have been made with Selleck in mind, and he delivers". Pre-order yours now: https://bit.ly/3wOW0Id

ABLAZE - The true story of the first Aboriginal filmmaker William Bill Onus is in cinemas today! Find screenings here: https://bit.ly/3wNg3GX

A Yorta Yorta and Wiradjuri man from Victoria, William Bill Onus is a truly heroic cultural and political figure who revived his peopleʼs culture in the 1940s and ignited a civil rights movement that would, against enormous odds, change the course of history.

Through rare archival footage, state-of-the-art animation, vividly created digital motion graphics and eye-witness accounts, ABLAZE is the compelling tale – part detective story, part contemporary opera – of how Bill and supporters brilliantly orchestrated their campaign for equality through performance, entertainment, film and sheer audacity outsmarted mighty forces seeking to destroy Indigenous cultures, languages, and communities.

Twelve Months ago, Umbrella Entertainment allowed movie lovers to make requests for films they would love to see get released on Blu-ray. Among the many requests, I submitted Megaforce from 1982. Today, a big announcement was made. Thank you! I cannot wait for this to be released on August 3rd.
Escape from Absolom/No Escape (1994) is an enjoyable blast from the 90s. Escape From Absolom brings some new and some similar things to the screen. It’s also exciting to see actor Ray Liotta take on a different role, such as a leading action hero. Review Attached! Umbrella Entertainment |

#Ablaze (2021) is a powerful and insightful documentary that I feel should be watched by everyone and not just those who love cinema. It’s a touching story that includes interesting mysteries along the way and moments that are heartbreaking and sad to experience. Review Attached! 🎥 Now Available in Australian Cinemas!
