This week it’s a short one, but a good one… maybe. The guys and I tackle Blue Underground’s upcoming Blu-ray release of Michele Soavi’s STAGEFRIGHT available on 9/23/14 and Bryon Blakey’s new indie PMS Cop from Fullmoon Feature’s and their newly vamped Wizard label. Somehow we also have a discussion about fast food. I am not sure how or why this happened.
We are back! After three weeks of unexpected issues this episode is finally finished! This week we take a look at Synapse’s new blu-ray release of the previously unreleased slasher Curtains! We also take a look at a new indie flick Pieces of Talent that seems to have us all blown away and last but not least we take a look at what may be Ti West’s crowning achievement in film making, The Sacrament! All this and more, plus a damn Birdemic email from Dance Commander….
This week we do not have the interview we were talking about last week and I give some explanation why. It was damn near impossible to ever happen, but I gave it a shot. I lost. Anyway, we have a go at Blue Underground’s blu-ray double feature of Bruno Mattei’s HELL OF THE LIVING DEAD and RATS: NIGHT OF TERROR which will be available August 26th and we finish off the Full Moon Classics Volume One Boxset with David Schmoeller’s NETHERWORLD! We give you guys one more shot at our contest from last week.
New York, NY – Wild Eye Releasing has announced that Mike Davis’President Wolfman will be available to own on DVD August 26 following a wildly successful festival run. Since its premiere at the Sydney Underground Film Festival, President Wolfman has been a favorite of audiences and critics alike, with the Huffington Post applauding the filmmakers for delivering “a candidate both parties can get behind.” President Wolfman has won awards around the country, taking home Best Script at the New Orleans Horror Film Festival and Best Feature at both the Aliens to Zombies Film Festival and Atlanta Horror Film Festival.
Meet John Wolfman: politician, single parent and werewolf, a man whose (hairy) hands are definitely full. Not only is he trying to stop his opponents from selling the US to China, he also has to solve a series of grizzly murders in the capitol. Add a crazed mad scientist, Smokey the Bear, a Miss Teen beauty pageant and a race against time to save his eight-year-old son Bobby from a murderous Vice President, and you have a movie that will keep you howling from start to finish.
Hailed as “perfect for fans of campy horror” by The Washington Post,President Wolfman was made entirely from recycled, stock and public domain footage with a newly scripted, scored and re-voiced soundtrack with enhanced visuals and effects.The DVD release of President Wolfman (SRP $14.95) will exclusively include several short films from director Mike Davis, outtakes, a music video and a highlight reel of the production.
