Quote: Fans of vintage Spanish films take note: We have a new Blu-ray double-feature coming this Summer featuring two 1974 films from the Director of The Blind Dead Series!
The Night of the Sorcerers: A group of explorers arrive in Africa to study the wildlife in the same area where a brutal native ritual occurred in 1910. All is tranquil until night falls and distant drumming draws one of the female members of the group to investigate the jungle. From there, a nightmare will be awakened … a nightmare of zombie natives and scantily-clad vampire women who prowl the moonlight jungle in search of fresh blood and more victims to sacrifice.
The Loreley's Grasp: In a town by the Rhine river, young women are turning up dead … savagely torn to pieces and their hearts missing. Concerned that whatever beast is doing these horrible murders will end up attacking the female students, a nearby school for women hires a hunter to find and kill the creature. The hunter will soon find out that this is no ordinary beast that craves human hearts, but rather a deceptive, alluring and mysterious being – The Loreley – who is already looking for another heart to use in a gruesome ancient ritual.
Official street date is July 18th
The Man From Planet X
Quote: After a ship from a distant world lands on the moors of Scotland, intrepid reporter John Lawrence (Robert Clarke, The Hideous Sun Demon) and the brilliant Professor Elliot (Raymond Bond) set out to investigate. Their journey brings them face to face with the ship's pilot – an alien from a dying planet that pleads for their aid. But Elliot's unscrupulous colleague Dr. Mears (William Schallert) has other plans entirely for the interplanetary visitor – plans that could decide the fate of two worlds. The Man From Planet X is pure 50's drive-in goodness, straight from B-movie master Edgar G. Ulmer.
Features and all-new High-Definition film transfer! U.S. & Canada! Release date is planned for July 11th.
