If RE-ANIMATOR was shot on Long Island for the price of a used car, THE SOULTANGLER would be the result. 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. AGFA and Bleeding Skull! are proud to bring the greatest horror movie ever made on Long Island to a new generation of fans — complete with a slew of gore-soaked extras. Order the DVD now!

Cobbled together with loose change by George Romero's friends, EFFECTS is a mesmerizing D.I.Y. frightmare that no one talks about, but everyone should. A group of coked-up filmmakers -- including Tom "DAWN OF THE DEAD" Savini, Joe "DAY OF THE DEAD" Pilato, and John "TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE: THE MOVIE" Harrison -- gather in Pittsburgh to make a slasher. As filming begins and "accidents" happen, it's clear that something isn't right. EFFECTS is a meta-enhanced takedown on the philosophy of horror that doubles as a sleazy and terrifying movie on its own. Order the Blu-ray now!
AGFA + Something Weird present a new 4K transfer of the only movie in history made explicitly to catch a serial killer. Directed by Tom Hanson, who had previously owned a chain of Pizza Man restaurants, THE ZODIAC KILLER was made to capture the real-life Zodiac Killer. That plan didn’t work. Instead, we got the most outrageous and compelling "tabloid horror" vortex in the history of planet Earth. And beyond. Order the Blu-ray now!
