Swamp Thing Blu-ray Release Details: "Long before superhero movies were packing out multiplex cinemas, Freddy Krueger creator Wes Craven followed-up the success of Richard Donner's Superman with this fondly remembered DC adaptation that brings a comic book favourite to life!
Following the success of The Hills Have Eyes, Swamp Thing shows Craven adapting his style from less rough 'n' ready thrills and spills - and the result is an adventure thriller featuring a mutant-monster with good intentions, and a supporting cast of fan-favourites including Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog, Escape from New York), Ray Wise (Twin Peaks, RoboCop) and David Hess (The Last House On The Left) in one of his best-remembered villainous turns.
Released in 1982 to an appreciative cult following, Swamp Thing remains one of Craven's most mesmerizing achievements - with a faithful DC-comic look and action-packed special effects. 88 Films are delighted to present Swamp Thing in a very special edition Blu-ray release that packs a pristine punch and highlights this creature feature classic in all of its bayou-tinged brilliance!

Survival of the Film Freaks Documentary Blu-ray/DVD Indiegogo Campaign: "After a successful festival run during the Fall of 2018, the cult cinema documentary Survival of The Film Freaks has launched a campaign to release a limited edition Blu-ray and DVD. The film is being self-distributed by OTC Industries, and the discs are slated to include:
· Feature Presentation
· Unused Interview Segments
· Extended Interview with Joe Bob Briggs
· “Making A Mood:” The Music of Survival Of The Film Freaks
· “...Is A Film Freak” Promotional Clips
· Theatrical Trailer
Survival Of The Film Freaks is a documentary exploring the phenomenon of cult film and how it survives in the 21st Century. Through interviews with cult icons such as Ted Raimi and Lloyd Kaufman, alongside modern-day filmmakers like Adam Green and Jackson Stewart, Film Freaks examines decades of film fanaticism and how the 'digital age' has transformed the way we experience movies. At the helm of Film Freaks is the directing duo of Bill Fulkerson and Kyle Kuchta, who have spent the last three years making the documentary.
The campaign offers more than just Film Freaks on disc: Other perks include a physical cassette or digital download of the film’s soundtrack, an exclusively limited poster, and a limited t-shirt. Donations go towards the manufacturing and delivery of these items, as well as the eventual digital release of the documentary.
The film premiered at HorrorHound Weekend Film Festival in August 2018, where it was nominated for Best Picture. It was screened and awarded at various festivals throughout the country including Shawna Shea Film Festival (winner of Best Documentary of the Festival), Sin City Horror Festival (Winner of Best Editing) and Knoxville Horror Film Festival (Winner of Special Jury Prize for Most Connection With Audience).
