Umbrella Entertainment's December 2017 releases!


ON DECEMBER 6TH, UMBRELLA ENTERTAINMENT GIVES US KILLER WHALES, HIDDEN PREHISTORIC WORLDS, AND CANNIBALS!

While a tad light on the Horror, Cult, and Exploitation titles, Umbrella has a really solid lineup of films for December! Of particular interest are the Dino de Laurentiis-produced ORCA (which boasts one of the most disturbing scenes in cinematic history!), the World War II-era fantasy-adventure THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT, and the (in my opinion) criminally underseen CANNIBAL APOCALYPSE (aka INVASION OF THE HEADHUNTERS), starring John Saxon! For full details on these titles (and a list of Umbrella's other releases) continue onward!

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
  • Umbrella's 4K-restored Blu-ray of SUSPIRIA is now available after a brief delay. You can order it HERE.
  • FAIR GAME will be released for the first time ever on Blu-ray on January 3rd! You can pre-order yourself a copy of this region free disc HERE. This release is packed with extras, including an audio commentary with the director, five short films, storyboard & image galleries, interviews, and more!
  • Also due out on January 3rd is STEPHEN KING'S SILVER BULLET! Along with cool new cover art, the disc boasts a director's commentary, cast & crew interviews, isolated score selections with commentary by composer Jay Chattaway, and MORE! Order your copy HERE!


CANNIBAL APOCALYPSE (1980)

Synopsis: The horrors of war take on a whole new meaning for Vietnam vet Norman Hopper (John Saxon, ENTER THE DRAGON), whose quiet domestic life in Atlanta is shattered by the return of Charlie Bukowski, a combat buddy who dredges up terrifying flashbacks of flesh eating and bloodshed in the war-torn jungles.

Now on the run from the law after taking a bit out of an unwilling victim, Charlie begs Norman to help him get out of town with another fellow veteran, Tom. Soon the ragtag team of cannibals are fighting for their lives, spreading a deadly contagion through the city before heading into the sewers for a gut-wrenching climax you won't soon forget!

The castaways end up marooned on a mysterious uncharted island, which is inhabited by giant carnivorous creatures.

In order to stay alive, they're pitted to the death against deadly dinosaurs, fearsome sea monsters, soaring pterodactyls, and marauding tribes of primitive humans. Will they escape their prehistoric prison, or will they become THE PEOPLE THAT TIME FORGOT?!

ORCA (1977)

Synopsis: Captain Nolan (Oscar nominee Richard Harris, HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER'S STONE) is a man of the sea. Brave and headstrong, he is a fisherman who takes up the fight of his life against one of nature’s most fearsome creatures – the killer whale.

Orca seeks to avenge the death of his pregnant mate, left murdered in blood red waters. Rising from the ocean, leaving behind it a wake of destruction and mayhem, the deadly marine creature lures his human adversaries to a match of wits and survival in the chilly arctic waters.

Also starring Bo Derek (10), Charlotte Rampling (THE NIGHT PORTER), Will Sampson (ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST), Keenan Wynn (DR. STRANGELOVE) and Robert Carradine (DJANGO UNCHAINED) and featuring the music of award winning composer Ennio Morricone, ORCA is a thrilling aquatic adventure of breathtaking scope.
