This week we are honored to sit down with Nikias Chryssos, director of the gleefully weird film DER BUNKER. DER BUNKER is out on blu-ray right now via Artsploitation Films. Also, Sean and Brad sort through the piles of movies that have arrived on their doorstep, Sean gets distracted with Dungeons And Dragons, and Josh Obershaw runs down recent news.
For 22 years fans waited to see Bruce Campbell reprise his iconic role of Ashley J. Williams following the theatrical release of ARMY OF DARKNESS. The early days of horror fandom on the internet were filled with rumors of when we might finally see the return of Ash in a fourth EVIL DEAD film. All seemed lost when the team behind the classic trilogy (writer/director Sam Raimi, producer Rob Tapert, and Campbell) put their money on remaking THE EVIL DEAD in 2013 as opposed to following up the original continuity. And while the remake was filled with more blood and violence than almost every horror film made in the ’90s combined, it just wasn’t the same without Raimi steering the ship and Campbell playing Ash.
Arriving on home video from Artsploitation Films is the black comedy DER BUNKER, the feature-length debut of filmmaker, Nikias Chryssos. The film will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on August 26th, along with exclusive streaming on Vimeo. You can pre-order at GrindhouseVideo.com right now! It will be available on other VOD outlets starting December 6th.
We had the pleasure to speak with Eric Bresler of Artsploitation films. During the discussion we cover their newest releases including The Treatment, Horsehead, Der Samurai and the upcoming film, Cub. Also, we plunge the depths of VOD to find horror only available in Digital HD in our segment Scream Streams and pray to the VHS gods for a decent release of 1987’s The Kindred in our segment Vide-OHMYGOD!
