Dear Full Moon Family, If you’re a fan of weird, wild, shocking and deeply strange cinema, you’re no doubt still picking up bone fragments and brain matter after your head exploded over last weeks big Full Moom Streaming news. Yep, it’s true. We have in fact snagged dozens of titles from the remarkable SOMETHING WEIRD library! For those not in the know, SOMETHING WEIRD is the legendary home video label owned and operated by the late Mike Vraney, one of the most passionate collectors and curators of delirious grindhouse, drive-in and vintage horror, cult and exploitation movies ever and beginning August 4th you’ll be able to see these classic bizarro features, a new one released every week! To start things off with a bloody, screaming supernova of shock, we’re launching the SOMETHING WEIRD smackdown on August 4th with a messterpeice from the Godfather of Gore himself, HG Lewis, with his 1970 bloodbath, THE WIZARD OF GORE. An almost existential grindhouse gem, THE WIZARD OF GORE (check out the art below) is Lewis’ best film, filled with buckets of stage blood, agonizing violence and twisted humor. A film so demented and awesome, it must be seen – twice – to be believed!
The week following, we’ll dial back the creepy clock a few years and spill out one of Lewis’ weirdest flicks, 1967’s THE GRUESOME TWOSOME. Outside of that amazing addition to FullMoonStreaming, we’re also premiering the next episode of our new series, William Shatner’s Full Moon Fright Night. This round, Captain Kirk goes for the throat and trots out our vintage sweaty SUBSPECIES spin-off flick, VAMPIRE JOURNALS. On the GRINDHOUSEFLIX side of the spectrum, culled from the amazing Blue Underground library, I’m deeply jazzed about us showing director Lamberto Bava’s underrated 1984 giallo A BLADE IN THE DARK, a film that is not as celebrated as some in the Italian horror cannon, but one that drips style, sound and of course…ample blood. FullMoonStreaming keeps growing, swelling and spreading its tendrils. When I started cobbling together our amazing in-house horror/cult film mag DELIRIUM last fall (issue #3 is available now, by the way from www.DeliriumMagazine.com!), it was still in its relative infancy, offering the finest in Full Moon titles and some great sidebar esoteric. But now, almost daily I’m watching it become something even more special, something stranger and comprehensive. It really is, as the company says, NetFlix for LUNAtics, offering dozens upon dozens of titles from every strain of wild cinema streaming out 24/7, all for only $6 a month. And now, with the addition of SOMETHING WEIRD…there’s no stopping it. Have fun! Stay Strange! Keep watching weird movies!
