Severin Films has anounced plans to release a slew of "outsider" cinema from the archives of Intervision Picture Corp. The weirdest and wildest flicks from the grindhouse and the first days of home video will make their way from the trash heap to DVD and Blu-ray. First up is Sledgehammer, the first shot-on-tape slasher flick for the home video market. More after the jump.
Sledgehammer will get a theatrical screening at Austin's Alamo Drafthouse on its DVD release date, May 10th. Other flicks slated for the digital treatment include "Canuxploitation" (that's Canadian exploitation - I had never heard of it, either) Things, an early example of "torture porn," and The Secret Life: Jeffrey Dahmer.
"Either by way of budget constraints or warped vision," says Intervision marketing director Evan Husney, "each release will represent a piece of a cinematic underbelly from a universe all its own. Buried in obscurity and ripe for reintroduction, the films in Intervision's new cult canon assure top-shelf bizarro derangement, gonzo action, transcendental fever dreams and beyond."
