With ticket prices at the theater getting higher and higher, audiences more and more annoying and video shops all but gone, instant streaming services like Netflix and VUDU are fast becoming the preferred way for today’s audiences to watch movies.
Always one to smartly capitalize on a current trend, Charles Band is gearing up to launch Full Moon’s very own streaming video service, and we’ve got the scoop for you right here!
From the Press Release
Full Moon Features is proud to announce the world premiere of brand new subscription-based video streaming service Full Moon Streaming, which will be home to the entire Full Moon Features library, including brand new world premieres and resurrected film treasures, from the convenience of a computer or mobile device. FULL MOON STREAMING is one of the world’s first and finest interactive video experiences, and will provide fans with unprecedented access to exclusive content: webisodes, behind-the-scenes footage, Full Moon merchandise tie-ins, contests, and much, much more. Viewers who watch closely will be rewarded as they seek out the hidden interactive elements built into the very fabric of the films.
For only $6.99 per month, subscribers can stream titles directly and instantly on all devices, allowing them to watch their favorite films anywhere, at anytime. A mobile-friendly version is optimized for iPhone, Android, iPad, and tablets that is nearly identical to the desktop version. Titles include such cult favorites as Band’s Puppet Master series, Subspecies, and Demonic Toys. Plus the lost Trancers sequel will premiere as part of a three part anthology known as Pulsepounders, including a sequel to cult favorite The Dungeonmaster, which was shot in 1988 and never released until now. FullMoonStreaming.com will be interactive in ways that fans have never seen before, including opportunities to bring home items featured on screen and see rare exclusive extras.
“The fans speak, and we listen,” explained Charles Band, legendary founder of Full Moon Features. “I’ve been asked for a comprehensive Full Moon digital universe for eons, and now the technology has finally caught up to what I had envisioned. Fans will now have the ability to totally engage and immerse themselves into our Gonzo universe, and witness the world’s most beloved film treasures in the comfort of their own homes.”
Also on tap for Full Moon is a new acquisitions label as part of the streaming site, to showcase the work of upcoming filmmakers. “I see so much young talent out there with such a dearth of distribution,” continued Band. “At Full Moon, we have a full-scale distribution arm including home video (DVD and Blu-Ray) and on-demand access, and we’d like to give these aspiring filmmakers a chance to show their stuff on our site, and keep it in the Full Moon family.”
Subscriptions will be $6.99/month, including unlimited viewing.
The service will launch on August 21st.
