Peri Jill Phillips, Liz Nolan

Synopsis:

A troubled teen, Mysti, possesses a brilliant mind but a sincere disdain for humanity as she proclaims the number one problem on the planet to be human overpopulation. With her mother recently deceased under mysterious circumstances, Mysti is estranged from the outside world and delves headlong into the world of the Occult. When her aunt Aurelia decides to visit she is shocked to see that Mysti is brewing Ayahuasca, the Shamanic ”vine of souls” and is crossing over into the ”other world,” a very dangerous endeavor often producing extreme consequences. But Aurelia is too late; Mysti has opened a portal into the Paranormal and unleashed an elemental force that has attached itself to her. Aurelia is no stranger to the Spirit World and they discover their shared heritage when Aurelia invokes an Ancient Witchcraft ritual in an attempt to expel the entity. The extreme demonic force taunts and tortures them both until finally emerging into this reality with its sole purpose being to consume those who brought it forth. Awesome Magazine, in reviewing Shadow World, said that it ”Takes American Horror Story to another level” and Extreme DVD declared that it is ”Horrifyingly original.” read more read more

‘Society’ Blu-ray Release Pushed Back To June 9th

COMING TO BLU-RAY ON JUNE 9TH

Starring:

Billy Warlock, Devin DeVasquez, Evan Richards, Ben Meyerson, Charles Lucia, Connie Danese, Patrice Jennings, Ben Slack

Synopsis:

IT’S ALL ABOUT FITTING IN After producing Stuart Gordon’s hit Re-Animator, Brian Yuzna (Bride of Re-Animator, Return of the Living Dead III) turned his hand to directing with 1989’s Society, and gave birth to one of the ickiest, most original body horror shockers of all time. Teenager Bill Whitney (Billy Warlock) has always felt like the odd one out in his wealthy, upper-class Beverly Hills family. For some reason, he just doesn’t seem to fit in. But his sense of alienation takes a sinister turn when he overhears a surreptitious audio recording of his sister’s coming-out party, which seems to implicate his family and others in a bizarre, ritualistic orgy. And then there are the strange things he’s been seeing – glimpses of people with their bodies contorted impossibly out of shape… Is Billy going mad or is there something seriously amiss in his neighbourhood? Packing stomach-churning grue and thought-provoking social commentary in equal measure, Society is a biting horror satire which culminates in one of the most leftfield, gag-inducing “climaxes” in all of horror history – just don’t eat beforehand! read more read more
