The replacement DVDs for Snuff 102 will be here in a week. The place dragged their asses with the replacements, which was very inconvenient, but, alas, they will be here and up for sale soon! The hardboxes for both Savage Vengeance and Snuff 102 are likewise on their way to us and should arrive at the end of September with the Black Devil Doll from Hell and Tales from the Quadead Zone hardboxes. Why so many hardbox delays for us? I am not sure, but hopefully this is a situation that will fix itself soon! Because everyone has been so patient, I would like to show off the artwork for the upcoming Snuff 102 hardbox, which will be a limited edition of 102 copies!
Mostly all of the Snuff 102 VHS have been shipped out. An email has been sent to the few international customers whose orders have not been shipped, asking if they would like to wait for the hardbox and/or DVD to arrive before shipping. Postage outside of the USA is extremely high right now, so it makes sense giving customers the option to wait until everything is in hand to ship it all at once.
MV has just signed a deal with CAV Distribution. For years, we have been doing everything 100% in-house. Doing everything in-house has had its perks, but also its downfalls, like slower shipping. But with the company growing at a rapid rate, it only makes sense to not spread myself thinner than I already am and to join up with a great company who can make the fulfillment end tons easier. You will therefore now see MV DVDs for sale from all reputable online dealers and in some retail stores. The hardboxes and VHS will still be done in-house, but the more time-consuming DVDs will be handled by CAV, which should make shipping times much faster.
Now onto Black Devil Doll from Hell and Tales from the Quadead Zone news. We finished the DVDs for both films and also have finished a 45-minute documentary titled Return to the Quadead Zone: The Films of Chester N. Turner. The documentary features interviews with director Chester N. Turner and actress Shirley L. Jones. It is a rare insightful look into these two obscurities.
The Black Devil Doll from Hell and Tales from the Quadead Zone releases will feature an array of cool editions!
-VHS releases of both films with a run of 150 each. We decided to go a little past 100 units on these two due to the amount of emails we have gotten that displayed interest in them. To make the VHS releases 100 times cooler, actress and artist of the original Tales from the Quadead Zone BC Video VHS release, Shirley L. Jones, will be hand drawing custom cover art for both releases.
-Hardbox releases for both films, with two separate covers for each. Cover A for both films will be limited to 66 copies and Cover B will be limited to 34 copies. These are first come, first serve, so be sure to check back for more information on both of these.
-The standard DVD will include both films in two separate DVD cases with a cardboard slipcase.
We are currently booking screenings for Black Devil Doll from Hell and Tales from the Quadead Zone. If anyone is interested, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
MV also has some other new releases in the works, including titles we have been keeping quiet about for months. It feels nice to finally be able to spread the good word!
First, we would like to announce the release of a deluxe set of the 1976 documentary, Mondo Magic! This is a film I have loved for many years, so it is great to finally give it the release it deserves! Mondo Magic will be sourced from an uncut 35mm positive print. This will be the first uncut USA release of the film!
In association with Vinegar Syndrome, we are proud to announce the release of the obscure 1988 slasher film The Changer, better known as The Nostril Picker. The release will be sourced from the original masters and will feature an array of awesome special features. This one is definitely one that fans of slasher films will not want to miss!
Lastly, we will be handling the North American DVD for the extremely controversial film Voyage to Agatis by director Marian Dora. Fans of Marian Dora’s work will be delighted to see this film completely uncut and with English subtitles for the first time ever! The disc will also feature many supplements, including an exclusive rare interview with director Marian Dora and actor Thomas Goersch.
