Cover art/info on the March releases:


[Show spoiler]


Quote:
Star Time
(Blu-ray & DVD w/ Limited Slipcover)
On Blu, we have a trio of releases that cover the last three decades in which worthwhile weirdo cinema was created, the 1970s, 80s, and 90s. Yes, the 90s mostly sucks, but buried between the countless piece of direct-to-video garbage are some truly mind blowing off-beat indies, such as Blu-ray #1, Alex Cassini's 1991 film STAR TIME, a truly one of a kind mash up of David Lynch (or Michael Snow) esque art-house surrealism/social commentary, sleazy character drama, slasher trappings, and a surprising amount of well done gore effects. Our release also serves as the home video debut of the original director's cut






Quote:
Babyface II
(Blu-ray & DVD)
Working backwards in decades to the 80s, after much demand we've FINALLY restored Alex deRenzy's BABYFACE II. While it [almost] lacks the cling wrap wielding heroine of the original, it more than makes up for it with drunk Jamie Gillis popping out of a cake to work magic spells on Lois Ayers, Kristara Barrington, and Stacey Donovan.






Quote:
Welcome Home Brother Charles / Emma Mae
(Blu-ray & DVD)
Finally, moving to the greatest decade in the history of time, the 70s, we present the last of our Jamaa Fanaka Blus with a double feature of his first two features, the notoriously depraved WELCOME HOME BROTHER CHARLES (known to some in VHS land as 'Soul Vengeance') and the gritty slice-of-life drama, EMMA MAE, both preserved from their negatives






Quote:
Confessions of a Teenage Peanut Butter Freak
Women at Play / Good Girls Bad Girls
(DVD)
Then, on DVD, a duo of mid 80s NYC sex film rarities, WOMEN AT PLAY + GOOD GIRLS BAD GIRLS and then the DVD debut of what is probably the best titled film in hardcore movie history, CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE PEANUT BUTTER FREAK; a truly crucial piece of SF made underground cinema, which we're meticulously restored to its director's cut

Same here. Never even heard of Star Time before but it sounds awesome.

Bummed to hear this. I was really hoping for a miracle to occur and VS somehow made a deal with MGM for Penitentiary III.

I missed these tidbits from the bottom of the newsletter:

Quote:
With February and March out of the way, how about April?


Well, this April we're gonna be offering the world Blu-ray debuts of TWO horror films (one 70s, one 80s), one of which will be coming to disc fully uncut for the first time ever! That, plus the Blu-ray debut of a rather significant 70s hardcore feature.

And, for those who missed out the first time around, our standard edition of LIQUID SKY also streets in April. It’s up for preorder now at Amazon.com: https://www.amazon.com/Liquid-Sky-Bl...rds=liquid sky

And, although it's still a few months away, remember that this Memorial Day weekend, our mammoth Halfway to Black Friday sale returns, with two new surprise Blus, both of which are 70s exploitation mind benders...







Come to our first film screening 'Upstairs at The Archive' in Bridgeport, CT!
Coming up on February 24th is a benefit show for our local community radio station WPKN. We are presenting a Blaxploitation triple bill in our newly built ’Upstairs at The Archive‘ event space (directly above our retail store in Bridgeport, CT). We will be showing DOLEMITE, PENITENTIARY & THE MUTHERS, beginning at 3pm.

There will be a suggested donation at the door, with all proceeds going to WPKN. Food and drinks will be available and our retail store will be open extra late. Come and browse our store collection, pickup the latest releases from your favorite cult video labels and hang out with fellow movie buffs while watching DOLEMITE kick ass and take names.

The Archive
118 Congress Street in Bridgeport, CT
Fridays: 11am - 6pm
Saturdays: 11am - 7pm
Sundays: 11am - 6pm
Yelp | Facebook | Instagram @ TheArchiveCT

I wish they'd open a branch of The Archive in MA, I'd be all over that triple-feature!

I just got done watching Flesh and bullets on blu and the song in that is so familiar. I know it says music by bullets in the credits but does anyone know the year and title? Or was it created just for the film? Thanks to VS for letting it run past the credits

Maybe you could start a new range of DVD-only adult titles shot on video?

Watched penitentiary the other night, never seen it but remember the cover from vhs, and found it okay. The beginning was really poor, like it was close ups on people in cells with some lame hard to make out jive and wrestling. The rest of the film was odd, the main guy had very little fights while the lamo turned I can fight/get knocked out guy took the middle of the film. I loved the silly sex scene in the bathroom with the big titty chicken during the first big boxing match it was so forced. Overall it was okay and silly. Is the 2nd much better? I know mr. T is in it.

So the ones shot on video... can those be restored in any way? maybe in a set? So many good titles after 87 like The Chameleon, Curse of the Catwoman, night trips, deep throat 3, etc....

Anyone actually see Star Time before? I never even heard of it before... will be buying it for sure though, looks right up my alley.

Is pre-ordering direct from VS the only way to get the limited slip cover?

Is it possible that VS will be putting out a U.S. release of Alice, Sweet, Alice?

Not even sure if it is due for release here. Haven't heard anything. I'll wait awhile before I pick up the 88 release to see if someone has it planned

It feels like someone threw a David Lynch movie and a David Cronenberg movie in a blender and gave it a low budget. I actually really enjoyed it. It reminded me of Videodrome.
Let us rejoice, and let us sing, and dance, and ring in the new.................Hail Atlantis!

It's a movie where if you're like me and went "that sounds kickass" you will end up liking it.

Looking forward to Welcome Home, Brother Charles, been on the radar for awhile. Not much interest in the others, but maybe I can catch up on some backlog.

I knew VS was releasing an 80s title to be announced soon so I thought maybe they'd have it. I'd rather support VS than 88 Films.
