    Truth or Dare?: A Critical Madness

    ★★★★

    This is the greatest horror movie about adultery ever made in Palm Beach. When Mike Strauber finds his wife in bed with his best friend, he dons a copper mask and takes out his psychological trauma on the world. This includes rolling over a baby with a car and rearranging a senior citizen’s face with an Uzi. The breakout 16mm slasher from teenage DIY filmmaker Tim Ritter (DAY OF THE REAPER), TRUTH OR DARE is a reckless triumph of bad taste, nihilism, and nunchucks that could only have been made in Florida. It never gets old. (Joseph A. Ziemba)

    Premutos: The Fallen Angel

    ★★★★

    PREMUTOS—the career apex of German splatterpunk Olaf Ittenbach—is one of the juiciest, goriest, squishiest, stickiest, slimiest, chunkiest, and slipperiest films ever committed to 16mm film. It makes absolutely no sense and I don't care.

    Just sharing this to commemorate the day that we released BOARDINGHOUSE on Blu-ray with AGFA! We still can’t believe it’s a real thing that happened.

    One of the movies that inspired the launch of Bleeding Skull, BOARDINGHOUSE is a hallucinogenic maelstrom of madness from director-producer-actor John Wintergate and writer-producer-leading-lady Kalassu. It’s also the first shot-on-video horror film to be blown up to 35mm and released theatrically. We’re ecstatic to bring the 35mm theatrical cut to home video for the first…

    This is the most essential scumbag giallo of the 1980s. Exploding out of Spain, PIECES follows married super-team Lynda and Christopher Day George (Lucio Fulci’s CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD) as they navigate a series of chainsaw murders on a college campus. With its gleefully unapologetic violence and greasy, synth-driven nightclub vibe, PIECES rides on an alternate universe wavelength that answers the age old question: What if Dario Argento remade THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE after a 48-hour acid binge with John Waters? Slip on your black leather gloves, rev up the chainsaw, and prepare to get fried. (Joseph A. Ziemba)
