New! YETI: GIANT OF THE 20TH CENTURY Blu-Ray

Look out, the cheesy meter just hit the top of the scale! One crazy movie has just been released on Blu-Ray. I had never known about this Italian epic featuring a giant Bigfoot that stomps a city. Totally nuts, totally weird...but, not boring:

YETI: GIANT OF THE 20th CENTURY (1977) - Blu-Ray
Stars Antonella Interlenghi, Tony Kendall and Mimmo Crao. A gigantic ape man is discovered and a relationship with a human-size beautiful woman. One crazy Italian film that is part BIGFOOT, part KING KONG, part TARZAN and part GODZILLA. The creature breaks loose, climbs buildings and crushes a city in Godzilla-styled special effects. In English language. Transferred from an original 35mm camera negative.

Get this cinematic enigma on our New Blu-Ray Department at Creepy Classics.

New, Sold Out FAST, Now Re-Stocked! LA LLORONA (THE CRYING WOMAN) (1933) on Blu-Ray

This mystical horror from the early 1930s in Mexico has a lot of DRACULA in it, with a female malignant ghost . Beautifully filmed legend of Mexico's number one horror figure, The Crying Woman. Now available in a limited edition Blu-Ray at Creepy Classics:

LA LLORONA (THE CRYING WOMAN) (1933 Limited Edition) - Blu-Ray
Limited to only 2,000 copies in the US. Restored from the only existing film print. Stars Ramon Pereda, Virginia Zuri, Carlos Orellana and Adriana Lamar. The official "Mexican Monster" is the Crying or Wailing Woman. She is the evil spirit of a wronged woman, who was scorned by her lover, kills their child and herself. Forever cursed and earthbound she is the "Crying Woman." A vengeful ghost whose wail is heard just before death. This film, unlike the 1950s and 1960s Mexican horror films, is more dream-like. Superb direction and photography. It has that unreal feel of the American DRACULA from 1931. A real early milestone in horror films from Mexico. Includes booklet and optional English subtitles.

Get this in our Mexican Monsters Department right here at Creepy Classics.
