Wild Eye to debut new collector’s label VISUAL VENGEANCE

Wild Eye Releasing is thrilled to announce their brand new sister label Visual Vengeance, a collector’s Blu-ray label dedicated to vintage, sometimes overlooked micro budget genre independents from the 1980s though 2000s.

The upcoming slate of releases will span underground genre history including action, horror, and sci-fi titles – and will feature SOV, Super 8, 16mm and 35mm lensed movies – though its primary focus will be shot on video movies of the beloved VHS and early DVD era, when independent film output flourished.

The label will include movies from enduring fan favorite directors like Todd Sheets, Bret McCormick, Mark Polonia, Brad Sykes, Kevin Lindenmuth and Donald Farmer, as well as many others – and a good selection of the featured movies have been feared ‘lost’ or remained out of print for decades.

All releases will include participation on brand new bonus features with the original creators and stars of the movies, and be released in deluxe collector’s editions with limited edition Slipcase packaging – as well as being loaded with special features.  Plus, many will have the addition of liner notes and premium items such as posters, stickers and more surprises.

First two Blu-rays are announced for July 2022, a pair of ultraviolent cult films never properly available in North America:

BLOODY MUSCLE BODY BUILDER IN HELL (1995)

SYNOPSIS: Alternately known as “The Japanese Evil Dead,” this legendary, sought after Super 8 independent Japanese cult film will enjoy its first ever North American release in any format and features new bonus content.
