Severin Films appears to have scored the rights to a trilogy of classic Australian genre features. This same group of films,
Dead Kids(aka: Strange Behavior, were most recently released on DVD from Synapse and, before that, Elite Entertainment. Along with these films, Severin is also releasing a collection of Ozploitation trailers on DVD.
Patrick: Just as Mark ( Not Quite Hollywood) Hartley’s highly anticipated remake hits US theaters, Richard Franklin’s original Ozploitation classic is back…now in stunning HD. A comatose killer is seemingly unresponsive in a small private hospital. But, when a hot new nurse begins to question his condition, Patrick will unleash a waking nightmare of psychokinetic carnage. Loaded with extras including a recently discovered vintage interview with Franklin & the 'never before available in America' Italian track with soundtrack by Goblin ( Suspiria, Dawn of the Dead).
Dead Kids: Fangoria called it “One of the best horror movies you’ve never seen." Michael Murphy ( Manhattan), Dan Shor ( Wise Blood) and Academy Award® winner Louise Fletcher ( One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) star in this grisly saga of bizarre experiments, butchered teens, New Zealand doubling for suburban Illinois, and a killer in a Tor Johnson mask. This cult favorite – released in America as Strange Behavior – features a hypnotic score by Tangerine Dream, co-written by the Oscar®-winning director of Chicago, directed by the producer of Two Lane Blacktop, now loaded with Extras and transferred in HD from the original negative for the first time ever.
Thirst: One of the most unique vampire movies of our time – is back like you’ve never seen it before. David Hemmings ( Blow-Up, Deep Red) and Henry Silva ( The Manchurian Candidate) star as executives of an international blood-drinking cartel known as ‘The Brotherhood.' But when they abduct a descendant of Elizabeth Bathory to reboot her depraved legacy, she must escape before the corporation can expand their human ‘blood cow’ dairies and create a vampire master race. Now transferred in HD from the original negative for the first time ever anywhere!
Ozploitation Trailer Explosion: This is the ultimate collection of ‘Ozploitation’ trailers, packed with 65 ockers, knockers, pubes, tubes, comatose killers, outback chillers, high-octane disasters and kung fu masters, featuring such classics as: ALVIN PURPLE, WAKE IN FRIGHT, MAD DOG MORGAN, BARRY McKENZIE HOLDS HIS OWN, STUNT ROCK, STONE, FANTASM, ROAD GAMES, FELICITY , TURKEY SHOOT, BMX BANDITS, THE MAN FROM HONG KONG, DEAD END DRIVE-IN…and many more!
