How'd you like to get a piece of gore from the Godfather of Gore himself? If you order an Ultimate Deluxe DVD of Herschell Gordon Lewis' The Uh-Oh! Show, that's exactly what you'll get... and more!
Media Blasters' Fresh Meat label has picked up the distribution rights to James Cullen Bressack's indie slasher My Pure Joy. The film will be getting a wide release on March 13th, and then we'll all see just how horror movies can warp your mind. Who would have thought?!
"Godfather of Gore" Herschell Gordon Lewis is back - with his biggest and bloodiest film yet! Film Ranch and Cult Movie Mania have announced the August 30th DVD release of The Uh-Oh! Show, the all-new horror/comedy by acclaimed horror film legend H.G. Lewis, director of Blood Feast and Two Thousand Maniacs.
If you're anything like us, you're salivating over the notion of seeing every head-crushing, bone-snapping, intestine-strangling moment of Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky on Blu-ray and in high definition. That being said, we have a look at the artwork for ya! Dig it!
That's right, kids! You want flicks that are so strange and screwed up that you need to watch them countless times to be sure of what you saw? And you need to see them in glorious high definition? Well, hold on to your asses because we have some incredible news for you!
One film that's been on our radar for quite some time is Gregory Lamberson's Slime City Massacre so we're glad to report it now has official distribution. Media Blasters has acquired the North American rights to the film and will release it on DVD, VOD, and Blu-ray in 2011. From the Press Release:

There are not many movies opening in theaters this summer that I find myself anticipating. I feel the same way about the DVD market. On the other hand, as a lifelong fan of old school Japanese giant monster movies, the July 27th DVD release of Tomoo Haraguchi's Death Kappa can't come fast enough for me.
HELL YES! Now this is what we're talking about, damnit! Giant monsters! Destruction! Random acts of violence committed by men in wacky rubber suits! Life is good!
Fans have long been awaiting the arrival of Frank Henelotter's latest film, Bad Biology. Finally the flick is getting set to hit home video and the best part? You'll be able to get your hands on it in just a couple of short weeks!
Fever Dreams and Media Blasters have a new anthology on the way that we're pretty stoked for around here. That's right, kids, come October 27th you'll be able to dig your claws deep into your pockets and offer up some dough to pay John Carchietta and Carl Morano's Late Fee.
To say that director Noboru Iguchi is a colorful person is a bit of an understatement. He's been known to show up to film festivals wearing diapers and generally entertaining the crowd with his huge smile and friendly demeanor. We caught up with him recently to talk about his latest film, The Machine Girl, which if you haven't seen you need to immediately, if not sooner!
Media Blaster' Fever Dreams label may be best known for splatteriffic Japanese insanity like Machine Girl and Tokyo Gore Police but now they're about to embark on bringing an old school giant monster movie to life with Tomoo Haraguchi, f/x whiz and director of Sakuya Yokaiden and the Kibikichi samurai werewolf flicks, at the helm. Look out world; here comes Death Kappa!
Media Blaster's Tokyo Shock sub-label can always be counted on to provide us with those off the beaten path DVD gems you simply can't find elsewhere. And come this August, 2009, they'll be releasing Yohei Fukuda‘s Chanbara Beauty: The Movie (aka Onechanbara: Zombie Bikini Squad).
Funny how Guilala went from being a giant Japanese monster that only appeared in a lone movie that's mostly unknown to today's audiences yet nearly 40-years later The X From Outer Space has not only returned in a new movie, he's even become a spokesmonster for a jobs' website.
