The Curse of King Tut’s Tomb

Thousands of years ago, the great Child King Tutankhamen ruled. Few know the details of his life – no one knows the secrets of his death. All that is about to change. Free-spirited archaeologist Danny Fremont is certain that if found, King Tut’s Emerald Tablet would hold the power to control the world. Unfortunately, the only one who believes Fremont is his nemesis archaeologist Morgan Sinclair, a member of a secret society who wants the tablet to harness unspeakable evil on the world and will stop at nothing to get it. With the help of a crackerjack team that includes the doubting Egyptologist Dr. Barakat, Fremont ventures into the Valley of the Kings, toward Tut’s tomb, nearer the portal to another world, and closer to the truth behind a mystery that will change the world forever-or end it.

Isle of the Damned

In Antonello Giallo’s follow up to the notorious Pleasures of the Damned, private investigator Jack Steele is hired by a mysterious treasure hunter to help find the lost treasure of Marco Polo. Along for the trip is Jack’s adopted son, Billy. Their search brings them to an island off the coast of Argentina… and into the clutches of a primitive cannibal tribe, the Yamma Yamma. Alexis Kinkaid, a mysterious recluse who has made his home on the island amongst the cannibals, may hold the key to unlocking the island’s secret… if they don’t end up in the belly of a savage first! Isle of the Damned, originally released in Italy in 1980, brought Giallo under fire yet again by the Italian government, who were outraged by the shocking and real scenes of primitive tribal rituals and cannibalism portrayed in the film. The film has been long out of print, but is presented here in a digitally remastered form.
