It's been a long time since I've posted about new Umbrella releases - far too long. So let me make up for lost time by introducing you to their latest DVD & Blu-ray releases!

Follow Matt Dillon's evolution as a serial murderer in the (fully uncut) THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT, and discover that yes, Eric Roberts will star in anything when you watch IMMORTAL WARS: RESURGENCE! Also enjoy a fun double feature of LAST ACTION HERO with Arnold Schwarzenegger, and HUDSON HAWK featuring Bruce Willis back when he could still crack a smile. Watch a modern retelling of a Greek epic in ULYSSES: A DARK ODYSSEY, see what's lurking UNDER THE SILVER LAKE, and travel across the Outback with WILLS AND BURKE, which features a young Nicole Kidman!

ANNOUNCEMENTS: 
* On October 2nd, Umbrella Entertainment is releasing two fun-looking Horror titles to DVD! Rolfe Kanefsky (THERE'S NOTHING OUT THERE) directs ART OF THE DEAD, which features seven evil paintings representing the seven deadly sins! Will a half-blind priest save an art-collecting couple from a demonic fate? Also coming to DVD is the FIELD GUIDE TO EVIL, an anthology flick from the creators of THE ABC'S OF DEATH featuring 8 international folktales of terror!

* Also due out on October 2nd is the new sci-fi thriller THE WHEEL, in which a paraplegic prison inmate volunteers for an experimental procedure that may allow him to walk again. However, this bargain does come with a few strings attached. Stars Jackson Gallagher, David Arquette, and Kendal Rae!


Umbrella Entertainment's THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT Blu-ray Cover.
THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT (2018)
Synopsis: USA in the 1970s. We follow the highly intelligent Jack (Matt Dillon - CRASH) over a span of 12 years and are introduced to the murders that define Jack's development as a serial killer. We experience the story from Jack's point of view, while he postulates each murder is an artwork in itself. As the inevitable police intervention is drawing nearer, he is taking greater and greater risks in his attempt to create the ultimate artwork.

Along the way we experience Jack's descriptions of his personal condition, problems and thoughts through a recurring conversation with the unknown Verge (Bruno Ganz - DOWNFALL) - a grotesque mixture of sophistry mixed with an almost childlike self-pity and psychopathic explanations. THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT is a dark and sinister story, yet presented through a philosophical and occasional humorous tale. (Note: This is the complete Director's Cut of the film!)

Disc Specs:
Rated R | Color | 153 minutes | Region B

Blu-ray cover for Umbrella Entertainment's Blu-ray Double Feature of LAST ACTION HERO & HUDSON HAWK.
LAST ACTION HERO (1993) / HUDSON HAWK (1991)

Synopses: In LAST ACTION HERO, young Danny Madigan (Austin O'Brien - THE LAWNMOWER MAN) is a big fan of larger-than-life action hero, Jack Slater (Arnold Schwarzenegger - COMMANDO, PREDATOR, THE RUNNING MAN). When his best friend, Nick (Robert Prosky - DEAD MAN WALKING), the projectionist, gives him a magic ticket to the new Jack Slater movie, Danny is transported into Slater's world, where the good guys always win.

One of Slater's enemies, Benedict the hitman (Charles Dance - THE GOLDEN CHILD, PATRICK), gets hold of the ticket and ends up in Danny's world, where he realizes that if he can kill him, Slater will be no more. Slater and Danny must travel back and stop him.

In HUDSON HAWK, Bruce Willis (the DIE HARD series) is Eddie "The Hawk" Hawkins, the world's most famous cat burglar. After 10 years in prison, he's ready to go straight. But it's not going to be easy for The Hawk...The mob and the CIA have conspired to blackmail Eddie and his partner, Tommy Five-Tone (Danny Aiello - LEON: THE PROFESSIONAL), into stealing three DaVinci masterpieces from the most heavily-guarded museums in the world. Sounds simple, right? WRONG!

While trying to steal the goods Hawk falls in love with a beautiful nun (Andi McDowell - FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL, MULTIPLICITY) and is relentlessly pursued by the greedy and powerful Minerva and Darwin Mayflower, who want the artworks as part of their twisted plot to ruin the world's economy. It's wall-to-wall action as the wise-cracking Hawk saves the world, wins the girl and gets the last laugh.

DVD Cover for Umbrella Entertainment's UNDER THE SILVER LAKE.
UNDER THE SILVER LAKE (2018)

Synopsis: From the dazzling imagination that brought you IT FOLLOWS and THE MYTH OF THE AMERICAN SLEEPOVER, comes a delirious neo-noir thriller about one man’s search for the truth behind the mysterious crimes, murders, and disappearances in his East L.A. neighborhood.

Sam (Andrew Garfield) is a disenchanted 33 year old who discovers a mysterious woman, Sarah (Riley Keough), frolicking in his apartment’s swimming pool. When she vanishes, Sam embarks on a surreal quest across Los Angeles to decode the secret behind her disappearance, leading him into the murkiest depths of mystery, scandal, and conspiracy in the City of Angels.

From writer-director David Robert Mitchell comes a sprawling and unexpected detective thriller about the Dream Factory and its denizens—dog killers, aspiring actors, glitter-pop groups, nightlife personalities, It girls, memorabilia hoarders, masked seductresses, homeless gurus, reclusive songwriters, sex workers, wealthy socialites, topless neighbors, and the shadowy billionaires floating above (and underneath) it all.

Mining a noir tradition extending from KISS ME DEADLY and THE LONG GOODBYE
to CHINATOWN and MULHOLLAND DRIVE, Mitchell uses the topography of Los Angeles as a backdrop for a deeper exploration into the hidden meaning and secret codes buried within the things we love.
