Grab your magician’s cape and pepperbox pistol, Arrow’s box set just rode into town.
No fan or cinephile’s knowledge of the giallo would be complete without seeing Luciano Ercoli’s film.
The Horrible Dr. Hichcock gets a reasonably good-looking, if barebones, Blu-ray release from Olive Films.
Arrow provides monthly evidence that there’s an entire sector of European cinematic production that’s gone long underappreciated.

At the risk of going out on a limb, let me suggest that Torso is much more than simply hackwork.
The infamous grindhouser Torso pales next to director Sergio Martino’s more inventive sleaze-thrillers.
Though not without voyeuristic subtext and sleazy kicks, Torso makes for a pretty anemic bloodfest.
Ercoli walks in high heels. Buy this DVD if that’s your sort of thing.
The Whip and the Body is at once frightening and hysterical, a gothic rendition of a D.H. Lawrence tale.
