A woman dabbles in the occult at Christmas, and her family is not pleased!
An Italian feature by a woman director with a clever reflection about the immigrants following up on a tradition of 'politically motivated' zombie horror and a hot topic in Europe. “In the course of a demonstration in Rome against the opening of a refugee center, an apocalypse of zombies breaks out.

When word of Chin’s skills spread to Stanley Spencer, the owner of the state’s largest cattle ranch, Chin lands a job as a fellow cowboy. Friend soon becomes foe when Chin realizes he is working for a cattle smuggler bent on brutalizing Mexican farmers and anyone else who stands in his way. Shown in 16mm.
Deodato (Cannibal Holocaust) is back with this nasty morality tale about three backpackers trying to solve the murder of their roommate, while also trying to get rid of the body. Expert genre-thrills from the master of the gory horror movie.
