After a successful run of limited edition VHS and DVD releases with Mondo, the art boutique of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, Bleeding Skull! has teamed up with the American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) to share wild horror and exploitation movies with the world. The Soultangler is the first DVD release in this ongoing partnership.
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.
Previously, The Soultangler was only ever released on VHS. We’re stoked to join AGFA in bringing this mind-bending movie to a wider audience on March 13, 2018.
