Grindhouse Double Feature -  Make Them Die – 2 DVD set of Campfire Tales / Kiss Daddy Goodbye

Stars GUNNAR HANSEN, FABIAN FORTE, MARILYN BURNS, JON CEDAR, NELL REGAN

Two classic tales of chills and thrills!  First up, sit back for CAMPFIRE TALES!  It’s a fun anthology with gore and effective rock music. -The Psychotronic Video Guide. “Twenty dead bodies. No breasts. Intestine-ripping. Blood-puking. Arm-hacking. Multiple pizza faces. Finger-eating. Face-eating rats. A 78 on the Vomit Meter. Gratuitous pumpkin pie. Heads roll. Finger rolls. Ear rolls. Zombie Fu. Two and a half stars.” -Joe Bob Briggs.

While out camping in the dark woods, three young people are approached by a creepy derelict who tells them a collection of grisly stories, each one more shocking than the last! You will meet a sadistic psychopath with a razor-sharp hook and a taste for screaming teenage girls; A group of obsessed drug addicts who decay before your eyes; A demonic Santa Claus who punishes bad boys and girls; And a band of bloodthirsty zombies out for revenge! 

Horror legend Gunnar Hansen (Leatherface in the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre) stars in this cult thriller from shock master Paul Talbot (Hellblock 13, Freakshow). This original, uncut, uncensored version of Campfire Tales will have you screaming… again and again!  

Then settle in for KISS DADDY GOODBYE!  An aura of mystery surrounds twins Beth and Michael, and their widowed father, Guy Nicholas. They live on the rugged and isolated Northern California coast, kept hidden away by their father from a ?normal life?. He even home schools them, isolating them further.  Is Daddy crazy? or is it something else?

Then one day, their lives are shattered when four gun-crazy bikers invade their property. The bikers humiliate and kill Daddy, right in front of the horrified and hiding twins.  Ordinary children would call for help. But Beth and Michael are not ordinary. They’ve inherited special powers from their dead mother, powers Daddy had insisted remain secret, remain hidden, or the ?people in white coats will stick needles in their heads.? Alone for the first time, Beth and Michael use their psychic powers to reanimate their father’s corpse. They create a Zombie to protect them. They create a Zombie who will avenge its own death? there will be revenge!  Starring Marilyn Burns from the original ?Texas Chainsaw Massacre? and 50?s / 60?s pop star Fabian. 

A cult classic horror tale on DVD for the very first time.

Directed by Mr. Show co-creator Bob Odenkirk.
Debuts March 24, 2009From Shout! Factory

SYNOPSIS

Veteran stand-up comedian and Emmy®-winning writer (The Simpsons) Dana Gould makes his DVD debut in Let Me Put My Thoughts In You, a one-hour comedy special filmed at Chicago’s Second City theatre. Gould dives into topics ranging from the struggles of marriage to the terrors of parenthood before letting his fertile imagination rip. Astronauts wear diapers, polar bears grow dolphin blowholes, and the devil waxes on about, well, waxing . . .  Showing the offbeat sensibility that has made him a cult favorite among comedy fans for years, Gould builds an extended riff on the trials and tribulations of a family of sex-toy factory workers (“That vibrating love wand put a roof over your head!”).  This title is priced to own at $14.99 (DVD) and $13.98 (CD).

One of the founding members of L.A.’s alternative comedy scene, Dana has performed on HBO, Comedy Central, The Late Show With David Letterman, Late Night With Conan O’Brien, and has appeared in numerous TV shows including Seinfeld and The Ben Stiller Show.

BONUS FEATURES
-The Dana Gould interview, by Bob Odenkirk.

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009

The creators of the original NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD bring you THE BOOBY HATCH, a zany comedy full of schlocky humor, nudity and sex!  Sweet and innocent Cherry Jankowski (Sharon Joy Miller) is a product tester for Joyful Novelties, Inc., a manufacturer of erotic sex toys.  She goes day-to-day, trying to find self-fulfillment in a crazy, erotic, sex-filled world. 

One of her friends at work, Marcello Fettucini (Rudy Ricci), is at risk of losing his job because he’s having trouble getting an erection.  If he can’t get aroused, he can’t test out the new products!  Can Marcello and Cherry work out their problems and live happy, or will they continue to just “lay down on the job”?  

Written and co-directed by NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD horror novelist John Russo, THE BOOBY HATCH satirizes the unbelievable sexual attitudes of the 1970s and makes its DVD debut in this special features-laden edition from Synapse Films.
