Hey there my friends, I’m here with a bit of a sales pitch for you. Now before you ask, its not me who is selling anything but instead the fine folks over at VCI Entertainment. Readers of our Pop Culture focuses know full well how I line out a monthly list of solicitations and this helps keep the geek minded (like myself) satisfied. Since we also get served up emails by some notable companies that specialize in numerous underground and often unavailable for years movies I’m happy to share these announcements. There wasn’t a “press release” per say for this group of Spring releases from VCI Entertainment. Let’s take a peak.
Aftermath, The [Blu-ray + DVD]: What comes after World War III? A spaceship returns from deep space to find the Earth in “The Aftermath” of a nuclear and biological war. The streets are filled with mutated survivors feeding off the weak and a Manson-like figure called Cutter (Sid Haig) is reigning terror down on all others. Cutter and his gang of mercenary thugs are systematically murdering all the male survivors and enslaving women and children.
Twilight People, The [Blu-ray + DVD]: ANIMAL DESIRES…HUMAN LUST! Matt Farrell (Ashley) is plucked from the sea while skin-diving and taken to the foreboding fortress of Dr. Gordon. He is to become part of the doctor’s diabolical experiment to create a race of super people. This twisted and maniacal doctor’s experiments have so far only created terrifying, hideous creatures. Freed by the doctor’s own daughter, they turn the island into a bloodbath of terror!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Surely this rundown features some interesting stuff but nothing I would find myself digging into for the most part. I like Horror films for sure but the underground stuff was never really my cup of tea. Of course, I do have plenty of friends who are into the obscure Horror and Kung-Fu features and even some who love the old Westerns no matter how schlocky they end up being. Many were the times that I explored places like Kim’s Video in NYC with them and would watch my buddies leave with bags of long forgotten about films that only they as a store seemed to have on sale. Geeks will be geeks and hey, I was no stranger in hunting down certain comic books at store after store growing up. My plan as a content creator for this here entertainment website will be to feature more posts like this and get you reaching for that credit card. Chime in with your thoughts about the ones you like down below and I will see you next time.
