Cannibal Ferox Jigsaw

SOLD OUT!

The third instalment of our VHS jigsaws is Umberto Lenzi’s delirious Cannibal Ferox (or, if you prefer, Make Them Die Slowly). We’ve gone for the US poster design and as usual, it is printed on ultra glossy card stock and is housed in a retro VHS case for showing-off purposes.

We’re sticking to the same 300-piece affair and just to keep everything traditional, there will once again only be 50 sets worldwide. They are all individually numbered to make you feel even more special. I’m sure you know us well enough by now to know that when they’re gone, they stay gone. So, keep your monkeys out of harm’s way, pack away your hooks and put on your reinforced trousers, it’s the most notorious jigsaw yet! Banned in 32 countries (we added Scotland to the list), you are hereby advised to make the jigsaw slowly…

Lurid Trumps – A Guide!

Perhaps you are new to the cut-throat world of Lurid Trumps – in which case, a belated welcome.

First, a run-down of the rules of play – deviations from which are discouraged, lest portals to other worlds be opened.

“Deal the shuffled cards out equally, face down. The player on the dealer’s left reads a category and score from their top card. The other players do likewise.

The highest value wins, and the winner takes all the top cards, placing them at the bottom of their stack. They then choose a category from their top card. If two or more cards share the same selected top value, all the top cards are placed in the middle and the same player chooses again from their next card. The winner takes all the cards in the middle as well.

The ultimate winner is the player with all/the most cards. They may then force all the losers to carry out any degrading, illegal or deadly act they wish and will be exempt from legal ramifications under the 1965 Trump Act”.

Thus far, there are been three sets of Lurid Trumps, all covering the infamous 72 Video Nasties and the so-called ‘Section Three’ titles.

Set One – The Mary Whitehouse edition. All the nasties sets feature a cover card of a figure from the fun and games of the crackdown on what were hailed as corrupting films in the early 80’s. Mary was the most recognisable figure of censorship in the UK, almost omnipresent on television, warning of the dangers of watching just about anything. This is now sadly very sold out indeed.

Set Two – The James Ferman edition. Overzealous might still be understating Ferman as a film censor, a role he undertook from 1975-1999, eventually becoming director of the BBFC. Under his ruthless say-so, films such as Texas Chain Saw Massacre were banned outright, as were many others, now collectively referred to as the DPP (Director of Public Prosecution) Video Nasties. Those films featuring sex, violence, or what he viewed as off-limits weapons (nunchuks were particularly frowned upon) that were passed could still well be cut to ribbons. Less than half a dozen sets remaining – buy here

Set Three – The Sir Graham Bright edition. The first set of two covering the Section Three (of the Obscene Publications Act) titles, those which may or may not be subject to lawful confiscation, depending on the area of the country. The now knighted Graham Bright was a fierce political campaigner against the dangers of watching videos in your own home and was the person responsible for introducing the Private Member’s Bill to the House of Commons, which eventually led to the Video Recordings Act of 1984, the requirement of all films to have been passed by a board of unelected censors. Critically few left! Buy here

Set Four – The James Anderton Edition. The second set of the so-called Section 3 titles, featuring both obscure titles and those which, unthinkably at the time, now regularly screen on terrestrial and cable television. Anderton was chief constable of Manchester during the Video Nasty era and his devout Christianity and position of authority in the judicial system meant he had a platform for regularly ranting against the evils of watching horror films in the home.

Set Five – Mondo VHS! A no-holds barred journey through the pre-certificate videos of the early 1980’s, taking in all possible genres but mostly the gruesome, the salacious and the bizarre. The first of many planned set, available to buy here now!

Cannibal Holocoasters

SORRY, SOLD OUT!

 

Now available – individually hand-made, high quality glass (not plastic) coasters featuring the lurid poster art from some of your favourite cannibal films. A not insignificant 10cm x 10cm, each coaster is reverse-printed to ensure that unless you’re some kind of delinquent, the design is virtually scratch-proof. “But what of my mahogany occasional table?”, we hear you cry. Well, we’ve thought of that too.

Each coaster comes with four rubber feet to protect both your surfaces and your coasters. Marvellous. These are genuinely dazzling in the flesh and are available to order in sets of four, featuring art from Cannibal Holocaust, Eaten Alive, Cannibal Ferox and Prisoner of the Cannibal God.

Lurid Trumps – Series 3 – The Graham Bright Edition

SOLD OUT!

32section3spread01Gods & Monsters return to complete the saga of the darkest days of UK home entertainment with the DPP’s Section 3 list of titles. These films were considered alarming enough to concern Magistrate’s Courts but had less of a chance of being found foul enough to lead to convictions should they progress to the High Court. Still liable at the time for seizure and forfeiture, they will now grace the final sets of our Video Nasties Lurid Trumps.

These titles will be split across two decks of Lurid Trumps – series 4, the James Anderton set, is available separately.

Series 3

x40 Plastic-coated, round-cornered cards

Top quality games-board

Exclusive title card featuring the visage of a key player in the farrago, in this case, Sir Graham Bright

All decks sent plastic-sealed and housed in a plastic case for transport and display.

Limited to 200 sets worldwide. Existing passengers will be aware of crazy internet auction prices on the Whitehouse and Ferman sets…do not miss out!

Postage costs all included:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our cover-star, Graham Bright. The now Sir Graham Bright introduced the two private member’s bills which eventually became the Video Recordings Act in the UK. More magnificently, he claimed (and who’s to say he’s wrong?) that there was evidence that dogs could be corrupted by being exposed to the films which would eventually become banned. Graham joins Mary Whitehouse and James Ferman in our Hall of Infamy.

Lurid Trumps Video Nasties Series 2

SOLD OUT!

nasties2.1

For reasons we don’t fully understand, we have an extremely limited number of Series 2 Lurid Trumps for sale. These were limited to 200 copies and sold out in days, commanding (regrettably for us) astonishing prices on, as they say, internet auction sites. Series two, now referred to as The James Ferman Edition, features such cinematic joy as Zombie Flesh Eaters; I Spit on Your Grave; Island of Death and The Driller Killer. These are NOT re-prints – these are original stock which has materialised from our warehouse in Europe.

Other than online scalpers, this will be your last chance to own an incredibly sought after set.

36 cards printed on high quality card, sealed in cellophane and housed in a clear plastic case, these are a must for the collector!
