Something Weird Happening Over on Full Moon StreamingSomething Weird is coming to FullMoonStreaming.com in a BIG way! Read on for probably one of the coolest (and weirdest) announcements you’ll see all week… and that’s saying something given that it’s San Diego Comic-Con Week!

From the Press Release
Full Moon is thrilled to announce the latest addition to the FullMoonStreaming.com roster: an untamed collection of classic cult, horror, and exploitation movies culled from the legendary SOMETHING WEIRD library!

The brainchild of late exploitation film curator and weird cinema enthusiast Mike Vraney (who tragically lost his battle with lung cancer earlier this year), SOMETHING WEIRD is widely recognized as the premiere imprint for awesomely lurid, cult cinema. The company has thousands of bizarre and wonderful motion pictures under their umbrella, representing every single strain of strangeness from greasy, hard and soft-core erotica to tassel-twirling burlesque; from European gladiator epics to gory horror gems; from druggie freak out potboilers and beyond. Simply put, in the annals of exploitation film culture, SOMETHING WEIRD stands alone.

Full Moon is no stranger to oddball film culture either, and the licensing of key titles from the staggering SOMETHING WEIRD library to our FullMoonStreaming.com channel is a match made in sticky celluloid heaven.

“I’ve made more than my share of crazy movies,” says iconic film producer and Full Moon Features president Charles Band, “but there’s nothing quite like the films that Mike Vraney lovingly assembled over the years with SOMETHING WEIRD. The level of care and passion that went into his reverent presentations of stuff that would otherwise be relegated to obscurity is to be celebrated. By partnering with SOMETHING WEIRD, we’re honoring Mike by bringing our FullMoonStreaming.com subscribers a window into his weird world and it’s something I’m very excited about.”

Artist Lisa Petrucci, Vraney’s wife and surviving SOMETHING WEIRD owner and operator, had this to say about the FullMoonStreaming.com partnership.

“The folks at SOMETHING WEIRD are thrilled to be entering this new venture,” Petrucci, a noted visual artist in her own right, says.

“The idea of exposing our unique brand of exploitation and horror to their film fans is an exciting prospect. Montag the Magnificent (THE WIZARD OF GORE) and Fuad Ramses (BLOOD FEAST) will feel right at home with the other gorehounds in the Full Moon family. I’d like to think that our beloved founder, Mike Vraney, would highly approve of this collaboration!”

Over the next several months, FullMoonStreaming.com will be slowly rolling out dozens of amazing SOMETHING WEIRD titles, and to kick-off the party, we’re blasting off with a selection of 10 amazing movies that will blow your mind. Every week a new title will appear.

The inaugural FullMoonStreaming/SOMETHING WEIRD titles unspooling over the next two months are:

THE ACID EATERS (1968)
Legendary sleaze merchant David F. Friedman cashes in on the druggie flicks like Roger Corman’s THE TRIP and jams in tons of female nudity, violence and general psychedelic insanity. You don’t have to be high to groove on this gem…but it helps!

BLOOD FEAST (1963)
Widely recognized as the first “gore” movie, this H.G. Lewis classic still shocks today with its endless parade of bloody atrocities tempered by its awesomely ludicrous plot and wonderfully wooden acting.

THE GRUESOME TWOSOME (1967)
Lewis’ Florida-lensed hack-em up sees a mad matriarch dispatch her brain addled son to kill and scalp as many women as he can muster, using their bloody hair for mama’s wig shop. Like SWEENEY TODD for the mentally ill!

LOVE CAMP 7 (1969)
Ultra controversial “Nazisploitation” gem that predated such celebrated nasties as THE NIGHT PORTER and ILSA SHE WOLF OF THE SS, this one is jam-packed with politically incorrect depravity that has caused it no end of censorial antagonism.

THE NAKED WITCH (1961)
Larry Buchanan’s dirty Texas horror show charts the rise of the TIT-ular sorceress, who wreaks havoc and pounds pulses. Tons of cheeky fun.

OLGA’S HOUSE OF SHAME (1964)
The crown jewel of the sadistic “Olga” films, this sleaze epic sees rough ‘n tumble madame Olga (Audrey Campbell) fleeing with her girls to an abandoned ore mine and opening up a new house of degradation and carnal cruelty.

SATAN’S CHILDREN (1975)
A favorite of BASKET CASE icon Frank Henenlotter, SATAN’S CHILDREN is a shot-in-Florida cheapie that has to be seen to believed. Tawdry, homophobic, and yet homoerotic at the same time, this one is weird, mean, violent, and one of the best party movies you’ll ever see.

TWO-THOUSAND MANIACS! (1964)
The inimitable H.G. Lewis followed up the Drive-In success of BLOOD FEAST with this Southern-fried shocker, a film that dials down the explicit gore and amps up filmmaking craft resulting in a fun, violent, and even eerie horror classic.

THE GORE GORE GIRLS (1972)
H.G. Lewis migrates his unique blend of sleaze into the heart of the 1970’s with this blend of stripper-riddled bump ‘n grind gorefest and skid row detective thriller.

THE WIZARD OF GORE (1970)
Lewis’ crown jewel, his masterpiece of Grand Guignol that examines the stage antics of the malevolent magician Montag, an illusionist whose violent gags really make you gag. Almost existential at times, this one has to be seen to believed. Bring your barf bags!

The fun rolls out beginning Monday, August 4th.

Inoperable starring Danielle Harris Gets New Poster and Limited December Release Date

Published

on

Last year we here at Dread Central premiered the trailer for the upcoming Danielle Harris hospital horror flick Inoperable from director Christopher Lawrence Chapman.

Today we have the film’s all-new poster and news that the film will finally be hitting select theaters on December 1st.

I just watched the trailer again myself and I have to say I am really looking forward to the film. I dig the location, the hurricane aspect, the psychological horror of the situation and the whole she-bang.

Count me to check out the film as soon as it hits Blu-ray and/or VOD (hopefully) within the new year. We’ll let you know when we hear more.

What do you think of the trailer and new poster for Inoperable? Let us know below!

The film is directed by Christopher Lawrence Chapman from a screenplay he co-wrote with Jeff Miller. The film stars Danielle Harris, Katie Keene, and Isabella Sofia Menna.

Robert Kurtzman’s Creature Corps handled the film’s makeup effects, with David Henson Greathouse (Syfy’s “FaceOff”) supervising, and he, Barry Aslinger, and Beki Ingram handling the bulk of the effects. Philip Jessen is unit production manager, Ashley Eberbach is first assistant director, and Bobby Marinelli is production designer.

Inoperable hits select theaters December 1st.

Synopsis:

A young woman wakes up in a seemingly evacuated hospital with a hurricane approaching. She realizes the storm has awakened malevolent forces, trapping her in a time loop. She must escape the hospital before the storm passes or she will be trapped in its halls forever.

Freddy’s Greatest Hits Vinyl Re-issue Is a Must-Own

Published

on

Strange Disc Records has just announced that it will be releasing “Freddy’s Greatest Hits – The Elm Street Group” on vinyl starting this Wednesday with pre-orders expected to ship in January 2018.

Not only that but Mondo announced they will be releasing an exclusive variant pressed on “Freddy Sweater” striped vinyl. This LP from Mondo is limited to 400 and will cost you $25.

For those who might not know, “Freddy’s Greatest Hits” was originally released in 1987. The record contains nine tracks (covers, originals, and instrumentals) with Robert Englund doing the voice of Freddy over the top.

I don’t know about you but this has just made my list of must-own items. But I’d prefer an original copy. That said an original copy is probably hundreds of buck on eBay as opposed to this version for a mere $25 bucks. Not bad.

That is One Gigantic Steampunk Squid…

Published

on

Perhaps one of the greatest sci-fi adventures novels ever written, Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was a landmark book, one that was decades ahead of its time. The story follows the crew of the Nautilus, a submarine commanded by Captain Nemo, as they venture in search of a giant sea monster. It was the basis for several film adaptations and the character of Captain Nemo played a pivotal role in the graphic novel series The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

So why am I bringing this up, you ask? Because Tor Books is releasing Nemo Rising, a sequel, this Christmas! Written by C. Courtney Joyner, the story once again follows Nemo, although this book sees him a prisoner that must be pardoned by President Ulysses S. Grant in order to face an onslaught of more sea monsters.

Normally, I wouldn’t bother you all with this, but I happen to have a soft spot in my heart for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the cover art for the book is fucking epic! I’ve always been a fan of cephalopods, and I’ve found the steampunk aesthetic to be pretty fascinating. Combine them both along with giant monsters, and you damn well better believe that I’m 100% into it! Plus, it’s wrapped itself around the Nautilus, which is already a giant vessel, so now I’m wondering just how large these mechanical monstrosities are…

Nemo Rising will be released on hardcover from Tor Books on December 26, 2017.

Synopsis:
Sea monsters are sinking ships up and down the Atlantic Coast. Enraged that his Navy is helpless against this onslaught and facing a possible World War as a result, President Ulysses S. Grant is forced to ask for assistance from the notorious Captain Nemo, in Federal prison for war crimes and scheduled for execution.

Grant returns Nemo’s submarine, the infamous Victorian Steampunk marvel Nautilus, and promises a full Presidential pardon if Nemo hunts down and destroys the source of the attacks. Accompanied by the beautiful niece of Grant’s chief advisor, Nemo sets off under the sea in search of answers. Unfortunately, the enemy may be closer than they realize…
