Now here is news we are very excited to see!
After a limited VHS release by way of Mondo, Alamo Drafthouse‘s own American Genre Film Archive (AGFA), in conjunction with Bleeding Skull will release the ultra obscure, ultra sleazy Soul Tangler on DVD March 13th!
If the SoulTangler title sounds familiar to regular patrons of our website, it definitely should! Street Trash alumni, Mike Lackey, wrote a compelling memoir piece for our very own celebrated My Favorite Zombie Month back in October of 2010! You can check that awesome article out HERE!
Via MVD Entertainment Group‘s Press Release:
If RE-ANIMATOR was shot on Long Island for the price of a used car, THE SOULTANGLER would be the result. Insane genius Dr. Anton Lupesky has developed a drug that allows users to inhabit corpses and transform into rabid maniacs! Can reporter Kim Castle stop the carnage and save our species from annihilation?! This epic of outsider filmmaking is a dream-like wasteland that’s punctuated with severed heads, evil beasties, and hooded slashers. Filmed in basements and garages, director Pat Bishow’s earnest devotion to storytelling in the spirit of H.P. Lovecraft elevates THE SOULTANGLER beyond kitsch and into heavenly territory.
NOTICE: THE SOULTANGLER was shot on 16mm film, but edited on video. This transfer is taken from the original 1″ master video tapes.
Bonus material and transfer details include:
- Transferred from the original 1′ master tapes!
