What's the difference between justice and punishment? DIRTY LAUNDRY... Thomas Jane is back as Frank Castle, aka THE PUNISHER. The Hollywood actor loves the character so much that he has made this fan film entitled DIRTY LAUNDRY. Co-starring Ron Perlman and at just over 10 minutes it's an ultra-violent slice of urban life. More please...

"Witness the big screen debuts of some of Britain’s best loved TV personalities in this hilarious blood-soaked tale of macabre machinations and terrestrial terror, featuring Tony Blackburn, Joe Pasquale, Russell Grant and Keith ‘Cheggers’ Chegwin.

But as the candidates are killed off one by one it soon turns into a deadlist! Only Danny, the hapless studio runner, will be able to solve the crime and stop the Breakfast Cereal Killer on his evil path of early morning destruction…"

Heading soon on the Danish AWE label in both DVD and Blu-ray is an all new zombie flick with no connection to the Romero classic other than the title.
"After inheriting the family mortuary, a pyrophobic mortician (ANDREW DIVOFF) accidentally exposes hundreds of uncremated bodies to toxic medical waste. As the corpses re-animate, the mortician's inheritance-seeking younger brother (JEFFREY COMBS) unexpectantly shows up, stumbling upon a full zombie outbreak!"
Here's another slightly different version...

If you need a fix of pure Trailer Trash then you'll be in 7th heaven with this old-skool compilation DVD from our pal Lovely Jon. Here's the press release: "From The Vaults is a bewildering compilation of old school video madness from Lovely Jon's extensive collection of VHS tapes. An avid collector of worldwide exploitation videos for over three decades (traveling the globe to unearth unseen gems of analogue insanity) - Lovely Jon is finally opening the gates and is presenting this limited release from his personal vaults of the wildest, most jaw-dropping video tape trash in existence. from the backstreets of Bangkok and The Salonika, to the off-track suburbs of Dubai, New York and East London - this crazed selection encompasses Jon's obsessive quest in excavating those AWOL nuggets that remain hidden and undisturbed in dusty warehouses, ex-rental stores, double-glazing shop backrooms and flea-ridden boot markets". This delirious DVD is strictly limited and can be obtained from here.

Coming soon to a screen near you is this Indonesian action extravaganza - from Cardiff born director Gareth Evans: "Deep in the heart of Jakarta's slums lies an impenetrable safe house for the world's most dangerous killers and gangsters. Until now, the rundown apartment block has been considered untouchable to even the bravest of police. Cloaked under the cover of pre-dawn darkness and silence, an elite SWAT team is tasked with raiding the safe house in order to take down the notorious Drug Lord that runs it. But when a chance encounter with a spotter blows their cover and news of their assault reaches the Drug Lord, the building's lights are cut and all the exits blocked. Stranded on the 6th floor with no way out, the unit must fight their way through the city's worst to survive their mission..."

We just discovered these two low budget Scandinavian shockers out on DVD.
INSANE (2010) is directed by Anders (EVIL ED) Jacobsson and Tomas Sandquist and is a PSYCHO-inspired slasher flick with the premise being that "a young woman is looking for her sister who's been missing for 2 weeks. After yet another resultless day she decides to stay the night at the first hotel she finds, “The Bridgeburn”. The hotel looks empty and it's in the middle of nowhere but she is tired and decides to take a look. She parks the car and starts to walk towards the entrance. The hotel is totally dark except for a ray of light that seems to come from a small room behind the reception desk. Suddenly the entrance door opens and a dark shadow appears..."
INSANE, which was shot in English, is available on Sick Films DVD and can be purchased from here.
On the same DVD label is DRAGONETTI: THE RUTHLESS CONTRACT KILLER (2010), at first glance, this looks like a Euro-Crime Thriller but soon morphs into much more than that as the Italian hitman Dragonetti, is hired by a Swedish mob-boss to get rid of his rivals. However, things go badly wrong as the killer murders the wrong bad guys. A price is put on the assassin's head and he has to flee from a team of highly trained soldiers. Dragonetti pulls his trump card, it seems he made a pact with Satan and in return for his soul he is now virtually indestructable! This off-beat and gory low-budgeter is described by it's director Jonas Wolcher as an action-packed bloody "mix of RAMBO, ICHI THE KILLER and HELLRAISER". This too was shot in English an can also be purchased from here. Enjoy!
