The #creepysixfilms Times (Vol. 25) – Valley of the Rats / Odissea della Morte coming to Blu-ray in Canada!

Darkside Releasing, Vancouver’s new genre film sales company, is proud to present their first Canadian Blu-ray release: a new erotic neo-giallo, Valley of the Rats. Produced by David Aboussafy, William Carne, and Vince D’Amato, Valley of the Rats stars Tristan Risk (American Mary, The Editor), Momona Komagata (Peelers), Jesse Inocalla, and features a very special guest appearance by cult icon Lynn Lowry (Shivers, The Crazies, Score, and Cat People) with music by Mickey E.Vil of Italy’s progressive rock band, The Mugshots. We were all very excited to see that the film wound up on Film Bizarro’s “Top 30 of 2017” list – in the #13 spot – earlier this year.

Darkside Releasing is also very pleased to announce that multiple-version Blu-rays will be released on Tuesday, March 27th, 2018, in collaboration with the Canadian independent distributor Shivers Entertainment. Both https://shiversentertainment.com and https://darksidereleasing.com will carry an ultra-limited (100 copies) triple Blu-ray set, which will include the official Canadian version of Valley of the Rats (disc 1), the original USA film festival version (disc 2), plus an ultra-rare videorecording of Tristan Risk’s burlesque troupe Caravan of Creeps (disc 3) of their 2017 live performance “Game Over: Time to Serenade the Arcade Decade” in its entirety, which also includes an optional audio commentary with Tristan Risk and MC Jessie Inocalla. Tristan and Jesse also provide an audio commentary with director Vince D’Amato on Valley of the Rats, and there are additional cast & crew audio commentaries and interviews included on the Blu-rays. Rounding out the special features is a live performance video by constant musical collaborators The Mugshots, recorded in Italy in 2016. There will also be an unlimited dual-disc version available (featuring the Canadian and the US film fest versions of the film, with special features); and finally, another triple-disc version, which swaps out the Caravan of Creeps Blu-ray for a very special printing of the international version of Valley of the Rats, which was re-cut, re-coloured, and re-titled Odissea della Morte (the new name courtesy of producer David Aboussafy) for 2018. This international three-disc version is limited to 500 copies and will be available exclusively through Shivers Entertainment https://shiversentertainment.com

Keep an eye on Darkside Releasing for more news and new releases, plus a time-limited double-pack promotion featuring the dual-disc version of Valley of the Rats paired with the Blu-ray/DVD combo House of VHS (courtesy of producer David Aboussafy and Creepy Six Films).

The #creepysixfilms Times (Vol. 24) – Happy (belated) New Year!

 Well, Happy 2018!

Our new film sales company DARKSIDE RELEASING made its debut in November at the 2017 AFM (American Film Market), representing not only the Creepy Six Films catalogue of genre film, but also Drew Marvick’s Pool Party Massacre and TROMA’s Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High aka VOL. 2! Lloyd Kaufman’s follow-up to his 2015 indie hit Return to Nuke “Em High made its Canadian Premiere at our Cinemafantastique film fest last August, with Lloyd Kaufman attending in person and giving new and local filmmakers a lot of advice on independent filmmaking and the ever-changing media business.

(Side-note: Lloyd Kaufman also made an all-day appearance at Cinemafantastique’s “TROMAFEST” in Vancouver in 2015…)

Please stop by and check out our FILM STORE!

In February, Darkside Releasing will be returning to the international film markets in Berlin for the European Film Market! (Feb. 15-23, 2018), and we’ll be featuring several amazing films from our giallo catalogue as well as a scorching new documentary, Love & Other Stunts and a mini-catalogue of Pink Eiga films!

 Well, Happy Saturday the 14th! We trust that everyone got to brush up on their Friday the 13th series yesterday! We would have, but we were stuck between binge-watching Breaking Bad on Netflix and overhauling the CREEPY SIX FILMS website during our fall cleaning. But really, we were doing a lot of web-work. Over the past two days we have minimized and tried to streamline the FILM page and the online STORE to host a better and easier navigation along the products — and as well, we’ve deleted most of our limited items that have sold out this year, including many of the original Carmilla lobby cards from the 2003 production… Please stop by and check it out this fall!

Usually, October being our favourite time of the year, it’s cause to celebrate by throwing our DVD deals and launching new product. However, as we get closer to Halloween, and realizing that we really only have a couple of weeks left before our new film sales company Darkside Releasing makes its international debut at the American Film Market, we have come to the conclusion that our new and Creepy goodies are likely going to have to wait for a November release.

TEMPLATE_VALLEYHowever, next month (November), we can look forward to the new double- and triple-blu-ray releasing of our newest erotic-surreal-murder-giallo THE VALLEY OF THE RATS, which stars Momona Komagata (Peelers), Jesse Inocalla, Jessie Crabbe, Tristan Risk (The Editor), and with very special appearances by Dan Ellis (American Guinea Pig) and Lynn Lowry (Shivers, Cat People, The Crazies). This out-of-this-world Blu-ray release should be ready to coincide with our distribution arm DARKSIDE RELEASING’S new VOD channel on Vimeo, where we’ll launch the Canadian Premieres of the recent films HOUSE OF VHS and REVERSED. Filmmakers, please keep tabs on this as we’ll soon be releasing a special shorts-genre-film programme On-Demand, and we’d love to see your films!


 

Vince D’Amato and Nicole Hancock D’Amato are the co-directors of the new international distribution/film sales company, DARKSIDE RELEASING. We will be at the AFM in Santa Monica this NOV. 1-8, Leows Room #304.


VOD Channel Coming Soon…!

TEMPLATE_VALLEY Well, Hello, October! Yes, it is officially that time of Halloween-themed Nestle chocolate bars, red leaves littering the ground, and Stephen King novels (although you’d do yourself a world of good by checking out the handful of books by relatively new author Grady Hendrix!)

To celebrate our favourite time of year, we at Creepy Six Films are working diligently on the new double- and triple-blu-ray releasing of our newest erotic-surreal-murder-giallo THE VALLEY OF THE RATS, which stars Momona Komagata (Peelers), Jesse Inocalla, Jessie Crabbe, Tristan Risk (The Editor), and with very special appearances by Dan Ellis (American Guinea Pig) and Lynn Lowry (Shivers, Cat People, The Crazies). This out-of-this-world Blu-ray release should be available by Halloween, to coincide with our distribution arm DARKSIDE RELEASING’S new VOD channel on Vimeo, where we’ll launch the Canadian Premieres of the recent films HOUSE OF VHS and REVERSED. Filmmakers, please keep tabs on this as we’ll soon be releasing a special shorts-genre-film programme On-Demand, and we’d love to see your films!

And if this weren’t enough, Creepy Six Films is beginning digital restoration work on their 2011 viral hit webseries Catholic Cheerleaders for Satan, restoring enough footage to present it as a new feature film release complete with a new, extremely limited-edition Blu-ray (that’s later this year for you CCFS fans!)

Vince D’Amato and Nicole Hancock D’Amato are now the co-directors of the new international distribution/film sales company, DARKSIDE RELEASING.

We (DARKSIDE RELEASING) will be at the AFM in Santa Monica this NOV. 1-8, Leows Room #304.

The #creepysixfilms Times (Vol. 21)

Happy September, everyone! We hope everyone has had a great summer – here at #creepysixfilms we were please to help bring the third annual #Cinemafantastique film fest to fruition in Vancouver and were absolutely thrilled to have Lloyd Kaufman, president of #Troma Entertainment and creator of #Toxie (The Toxic Avenger) as our very special guest and presenter as Cinemafantastique 3 presented the Canadian Premiere of the latest Tromasterpiece, RETURN TO RETURN TO NUKE ‘EM HIGH aka VOL. 2!!

The last time we posted, both George A. Romero and Tobe Hooper were still alive. As much as it’s been a summer to celebrate, it was also a time for some sadness, as we lost two colossal horror icons from this world, which will not be the same knowing that these influential directors are no longer a part of it with us. George Romero has been one of our favourite directors for decades, and Tobe Hooper was one of the kindest, gentlest human beings we’d had the pleasure to have met.

Since we last posted, Vince D’Amato and Nicole D’Amato (aka Nicole Hancock) have also launched a new international distribution/film sales company, DARKSIDE RELEASING.

Please check out the new company and our European production company BRIVIDO GIALLO.

We (DARKSIDE RELEASING) will be at the AFM in Santa Monica this NOV. 1-8, Leows Room #304.
