Umbrella Entertainment's March 2018 New Releases!


I'm a bit late in posting this (everything mentioned below came out on March 7th!) but don't let that stop you from seeking out Umbrella's latest titles! This month, there's a little bit of everything, from Drama (THE CHANT OF JIMMIE BLACKSMITH, LUCKY), to Action & Adventure (JUNGLE), but what you really want to hear about are Umbrella's latest Ozploitation and Cult releases!

This month we get THE IMAGINARIUM OF DR. PARNASSUS, which sadly turned out to be Heath Ledger's final film. To complete the movie, Jude Law, Johnny Depp, and Colin Farrell all star as different "versions" of Ledger's heroic character. Umbrella also released the Ozploitation classic MONEY MOVERS, a "ultra-violent" heist film based upon actual events, EMMANUELLE, a legendary piece of softcore erotica that is still generating sequels, documentaries, and spin-offs to this day, and finally a supernatural Western called SILENT TONGUE! Scroll down to learn more about these new releases, and see the full roster of Umbrella's March titles!

  • On April 4th, Umbrella is releasing Brian Yuzna's SOCIETY to DVD with a director's commentary and theatrical trailer as extras. Also look for their new trailer compilation disc, DRIVE-IN DELIRIUM: THE NEW BATCH, which boasts over 150 movie trailers, remastered in HD! 
  • Umbrella has numerous "world first titles" planned in coming months, including a few more movies from the old Cannon Films catalog! Unfortunately I cannot say anything more on this subject, other than GET EXCITED!
  • There is still no set release date for RAZORBACK, but hang in there, because this is going to be the definitive release of the film! Believe me, when I finally get the word from my contact at Umbrella!


Synopsis: The most popular soft porn of all time and a breakout box-office hit around the world, EMMANUELLE stars Sylvia Kristel as the eponymous heroine who is sexually awakened through a series of erotic adventures. Newly married, young, beautiful and naive, Emmanuelle travels to Bangkok to join her older diplomatic husband Jean.

On the plane, which takes off from Paris, she gets a taste of the erotic joys waiting for her in Asia. In Bangkok, the capital of the senses, with the encouragement of her husband, Emmanuelle abandons sentimental love to find fulfillment in her pleasures, first with young girl Marie-Ange, then with new lover Mario.

Emmanuelle revels in this new-found pleasure so much so that excess becomes the word of the hour, especially when Jean goes away on a business trip and leaves Emmanuelle alone in the hands of Mario. Adapted from Emmanuelle Arsan's famous novel, sensitively directed by Just Jaekin (THE STORY OF O), and lushly photographed on location in Thailand, EMMANUELLE is an erotic tale for men and women alike to enjoy.

Synopsis: Dr. Parnassus (Christopher Plummer), the leader of a traveling show, has a dark secret. Thousands of years ago he traded the soul of his daughter, Valentina, to the devil, in exchange for immortality. Now the devil has come to collect his prize.

To save her, Parnassus must make a final wager: Whoever collects five souls first will win Valentina. Tony (Heath Ledger), a man saved from hanging by Parnassus' troupe, agrees to help collect them, with his eye on marrying Valentina.

Synopsis: The counting house at "Darcey's Security Services" is a fortress. Security is intense and any would-be-robbers have little hope... unless they get "inside" help.

MONEY MOVERS is a fast-moving, ultra-violent telling of Australia's biggest and bloodiest armed robbery - the theft of $20 million from a payroll counting office.

Directed by acclaimed film maker Bruce Beresford (BREAKER MORANT, THE CLUB) and boasting a top-notch Aussie cast including Bryan Brown, Charles "Bud" Tingwell, Tony Bonner, Ed Devereaux, and Terrence Donovan, MONEY MOVERS "delivers an intriguing plot and hair-raising suspense with incredible pace and ferocity. A combination that thriller addicts cannot afford to miss!" (MOVIE NEWS).

Synopsis: Talbot Roe (River Phoenix), despite the pleas of his father Prescott (Richard Harris), insists on guarding the body of his wife Awbonnie who has died in childbirth. Afraid his son will lose his mind, Prescott goes in search of Eamon MacCre (Alan Bates), the showman who had traded his half-Indian daughter for horses. He intends to buy Eamon's second daughter in the belief that only she can save Talbot from his terrible grief.

When Eamon's son Reeves (Dermot Mulroney) objects, Prescott kidnaps the girl. But before he can get back to the tree a powerful and terrible presence rises from Awbonnie's body demanding that Talbot let it be devoured by animals and, in doing so, allow her spirit to rise and forever rest in peace.
