Last week, Montreal played host to The Montreal Comicon, an annual event bringing together freaks and geeks of every stripe under one roof. A big part of this shindig? The Montreal Horrorfest, bringing together vendors and guests from our dark little corner of the fan-sphere.
This year, Rue Morgue decided to check things out – as congoers, not as guests – and we like what we saw.
Zack Carlson and Joe Ziemba recently launched BLEEDING SKULL! VIDEO, a film distribution label specializing in extremely low-budget horror and exploitation. The movies they plan on releasing will have had very little distribution on their initial release, and even sometimes none at all. Thus far they’ve released one obscure flick, a VHS exclusive called Cards of Death. It’s a trippy, blood-soaked romp through the seedy criminal underground featuring some of the most absurd death scenes ever committed to tape. If Cards is any indication of what to expect from a BLEEDING SKULL! release, it would be wise to keep your eyes peeled for whatever other oddities will be coming next.
