Our friends at Wild Eye Releasing have a pair of treats in store for horror fans coming at you today, June 17th!
This independent horror distribution company is helping us to ring in the summer with something old and something new.
First up is director Peter Grendle’s new film “Blood Soaked”, a low budget genre and style mash-up that more than lives up to it’s title. This one has got it all : young college lesbians, hate crimes, torture porn, and even cannibalistic Nazi zombies. As independent as it gets, this “everything but the kitchen sink” flick is undeniably entertaining.
After having the misfortune of running into two twisted redneck sisters on the back roads, two cute co-eds get put through the wringer. Shot outside of Santa Fe New Mexico, where horror films and culture are still very taboo, Blood Soaked is based on Grendle’s independent short film “This Side Of Nightmare”.
Featuring 100% practical effects, the film keeps the audience off-kilter by switching between color and black and white footage, and covering the cast in buckets of blood. It is a fun flick for any fans of independent do-it-yourself horror, and I can’t wait to see what this director does in the future!
The DVD release of Blood Soaked exclusively includes a commentary with director Peter Grendle, a commentary with the cast, a live audience track from the Pollygrind Film Festival, the short film This Side of Nightmare, a cast video introduction, trailers and an mp3 download from Eternal of Wu-Tang Killa Bees.
Also being released today is a re-issue of the early 90s documentary “Invasion Of The Scream Queens”. From a time when that was still a new term, this classic takes a long look at the exploitation and horror flicks of the late 70s and early 80s, featuring fascinating interviews with Michelle Bauer, Brinke Stevens, Mary Woronov and many more.
For the first time on DVD, you can get to know all of your favorite B-movie actresses and hear them tell their own stories.
The DVD release of Invasion of the Scream Queens exclusively includes a new 2013 interview with Donald Farmer, deleted/ extended interviews from the original production, and an excerpt featuring Linnea Quigley from the out of print book that started it all, Invasion of the Scream Queens.
