    10 TO MIDNIGHT 

    Charles Bronson is back and with a vengeance in this contemporary underrated thriller, long awaited by fans and now taking aim on hi-def Blu-Ray for the very first time!

    Limited Edition BLU-RAY Release Only 3,000 units available at www.twilighttimemovies.com & www.screenarchives.com.  Once they are gone – they are gone!

    RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8TH, 2015

    “William Roberts’ screenplay… is damnably clever at dropping in its vicious vigilante theme without being didactic, and J. Lee Thompson’s direction, borrowing from Hitchcock’s editing in Psycho, creates the full horror of blades thrusting…without the viewer ever actually seeing it happen.” —Variety

    “Bronson back in his Death Wish shoes.” —Time Out London

    “A police and murder thriller laced with blood and sex. It is also a propaganda piece that argues against laws that let brutal slayers escape with insanity pleas.”

    Richard F. Shepard, The New York Times

    10 to Midnight (1983), directed by veteran J. Lee Thompson, stars the implacable Charles Bronson as a steely cop facing off against a wily serial killer (Gene Davis) and briefly going down for the count before he rises to take vengeance. Also starring Lisa Eilbacher, Andrew Stevens, Geoffrey Lewis, and Wilford Brimley.


    ANGEL

    From Writer and First-Time Director Neil Jordan and Producer John Boorman comes a haunting tale of the scars of violence in a powder-keg Northern Ireland – first time on Blu-ray!

    Limited Edition BLU-RAY Release Only 3,000 units available at www.twilighttimemovies.com & www.screenarchives.com. Once they are gone – they are gone!

    RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8TH, 2015

    “Powerful story set against the backdrop of the Northern Irish ‘troubles’…Rea gives a perfectly modulated performance, and Neil Jordan is magnificent in his directorial debut…A powerful film, noted for its black humor, atmospheric locations, and calculated touches of surrealism.”—TV Guide

    “Displays the technical proficiency of its director, Neil Jordan…has a homespun style and story…Chris Menges’s cinematography is the best thing in it.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times

    The début film of writer-director Neil Jordan (Mona Lisa, The Crying Game), Angel (1982, aka Danny Boy) indirectly examines the Irish “troubles” by focusing on Danny (the great Stephen Rea), an innocent saxophonist who witnesses the murder of his band’s manager and a deaf-mute bystander. His life subsequently falls apart, destroying his relationship with the band’s singer (Honor Heffernan) and leading him to vow vengeance. Highlighted by cinematography from the superb Chris Menges (The Killing Fields).


    AT CLOSE RANGE

    Another contemporary classic that “cuts no ice” in the power of lead performances by Sean Penn and Christopher Walken – on Blu-Ray for the very first time! Don’t miss At Close Range.

    Limited Edition BLU-RAY Release Only 3,000 units available at www.twilighttimemovies.com & www.screenarchives.com. Once they are gone – they are gone!

    RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8TH, 2015


    “A very tough picture…audiences will respond to the very strong performances of the two leads, especially Walken in one of his best roles.”—Variety

    “A spare, violent, unforgiving story…It is also a story with passages of love and adventure and cheerfulness…two great actors, Penn and Walken, at the top of their forms in roles that give them a lot to work with.” —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

    “Mr. Kazan’s screenplay is lean and to the point…There’s something bold about the film’s wealth of imagery.”

    Vincent Canby, The New York Times

    Based on a true story, At Close Range (1986)—written by Nicholas Kazan and directed by James Foley—gives us the grim tale of a rural Pennsylvania crime family led by Brad Sr. (Christopher Walken), a nasty charismatic who lures his n’er-do-well son, Brad, Jr. (Sean Penn), into a life of ghastly deeds. Also starring Mary Stuart Masterson, Crispin Glover, and Christopher Penn.


    EMPEROR OF THE NORTH

    Lee Marvin and Ernest Borgnine clash head-on in this timeless action masterpiece reteaming them with The Dirty Dozen director Robert Aldrich, barreling onto Blu-ray in gorgeous high-definition!

    Limited Edition BLU-RAY Release Only 3,000 units available at www.twilighttimemovies.com & www.screenarchives.com. Once they are gone – they are gone!

    RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8TH, 2015


    “A masterpiece of action direction by Robert Aldrich…The movie’s energies are vast.” —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

    “A duel to the death, developed with dark humor and nail-biting excitement…brilliantly realized.” —Time Out London

    “A fine, elaborately staged action melodrama…almost perfect action-movie characters…a sensational ride.”

    Vincent Canby, The New York Times

    Director Robert Aldrich and screenwriter Christopher Knopf bring us a spectacular Depression-era tale, Emperor of the North (1973) featuring a pair of stalwart veteran actors, Lee Marvin and Ernest Borgnine, as, respectively, a jaunty hobo determined to ride a train and the vicious conductor equally resolved to prevent this eventuality. Also starring Keith Carradine as the train-jumper’s young protégé, and featuring a potent score by Frank De Vol.


    FAT CITY

    One of master moviemaker John Huston lesser-known but most deeply felt works premieres in a brand-new high-definition transfer on Blu-ray!

    Limited Edition BLU-RAY Release Only 3,000 units available at www.twilighttimemovies.com & www.screenarchives.com. Once they are gone – they are gone!

    RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8TH, 2015

    “Has something that is all Huston’s own: his fascination with underdogs and losers…one of his best films…The movie’s edges are filled with small, perfect character performances.”

    Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

    “Something quite special, full of the kind of dialogue that movies usually can't afford, that defines time, place, mood, and character while seemingly going nowhere…shows us the director of The Treasure of the Sierra Madre and The Asphalt Jungle working with his old meticulousness.” —Vincent Canby, The New York Times

    The magisterial John Huston, working from Leonard Gardner’s screen adaptation of his own novel, gives us in Fat City (1972) the story of two boxers, one an old-timer (Stacy Keach) on his way down, the other (Jeff Bridges), a hopeful striving for the top. Also starring Susan Tyrrell and Candy Clark and stunningly shot by the great Conrad Hall in drab and dusty Stockton, California, this is a kind of dingy poetic masterpiece.
