In career that has encompassed such controversial classics as Ms. 45, Bad Lieutenant and Welcome to New York, none of Abel Ferrara’s films have quite managed to match the shock, extremity and downright notorious nature of The Driller Killer. Ferrara plays struggling artist Reno, a man pushed to the edge by the economic realities of New York living in the late seventies and the No Wave band practising in the apartment below. His grip on reality soon begins to slip and he takes to stalking the streets with his power tool in search of prey… One of the most infamous ‘video nasties’, in part thanks to its drill-in-head sleeve, The Driller Killer has lost none of its power to unnerve and is presented here fully uncut.

28 Days Later meets The Blair Witch Project as a mysterious virus turns the inhabitants of an apartment building into a horde of frenzied, bloodthirsty ghouls in [REC] - the original 2007 “found footage” phenomenon that spawned a hit franchise and US remake. A television film crew, documenting the night shift of a Barcelona fire brigade, get much more than they bargained for when they attend an apparently routine call-out. Upon arrival at an inner city apartment, the firefighters are viciously attacked by the elderly female occupant, who appears to be in the throes of some sort of viral infection. Before long, the virus has taken hold of the entire building, which is cordoned off by the authorities. Trapped inside, the television crew - using their cameras to capture the events as they unfold - and the other remaining survivors find themselves pitched into a nightmare of unimaginable proportions. Fusing the zombie genre with the “found footage” format to throw the audience right into the midst of the action, [REC] is a terrifying, relentless rollercoaster ride which builds to one of the horror genre’s all time bone-chilling climaxes.

Date rape is always difficult to prove, and the case against New York consultant Andrew Tripping is no exception.

Frat Hell. That's how the whole neighborhood refers to the apartment where I live with three other college students. It's a bit judgmental, considering the neighborhood we live in is more like a zoo than an apartment complex, but not inaccurate. If you put that many young guys together, things are bound to be interesting. I still maintain that the giant water guns filled with poison-ivy water were not my idea. January Dixon. She's the girl I've lusted after for years. A smart mouth and sharp tongue surrounded by soft beauty and a body I'd give up an organ just to touch. An important organ, like a kidney, not one of those lame ones like a gallbladder. It's a tricky situation since she lives right down the street and dating a neighbor generally isn't a good idea. But this is Violent Circle, where normal may as well be a dirty word. Thanks to an impromptu fashion show where I tossed all self-respect aside and strutted my stuff in full bondage gear in front of our small town, she now owes me a date. And I plan to collect. Contains mature themes. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris Chambers, Alexandra Shawnee. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tant/013148/bk_tant_013148_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Advisory: This series of erotica stories contains explicit sexuality, BDSM, descriptions of female domination over men, and adult content that may be deemed by some to be offensive, indecent, or otherwise objectionable, so please listen at your own discretion. Elsa has everything she thought she wanted. Great grades in college, awesome friends who support her every step of the way, an apartment all of her own - oh, and a thriving dominatrix business that has dozens of men across campus crawling to her to indulge their deepest and darkest desires. But something about getting everything she wants, even from legions of willing submissive men, has started to grate on her. She wants something new and different; she craves a challenge. Someone more powerful than the usual guys she dominates. Maybe even someone to whom she looks up. She ends up setting her sights on David Hilton, her law professor and an undeniably sexy silver fox. As Elsa finds excuses to get closer to her professor, she finds herself addicted to the thought of him and her together - and wonders how far she can push their chemistry-laden relationship before it breaks. Alexandra Noir writes what she lives. She's a therapist by day and devoted kinkster by night. She's committed not merely to letting you into her wild imagination, but also to giving you a window into the intense feelings and intimacy that occur in real BDSM relationships. 1.
