WIZARDS OF THE LOST KINGDOM 1 and 2 (DVDs) hooray?!

We had more than a few requests for both of these unbelievable excursions into the land of cheese.  They are definitely in the sooo-bad-it's-perhaps-good category of film, so be prepared and have an arsenal of supplies to help with the intake of these beauties. On the other hand, maybe these are best left a childhood memory.........










WIZARDS OF THE LOST KINGDOM (1985)

     The young son of a wizard flees his beloved kingdom after an evil magician kills the king and takes over the power of the realm. Schooled in the arts of magic, the boy wants to go back to save his people. First he must find the Ring of Magic and the Sword of Power if he is going to stand a chance.

     Traveling together with his creature friend, an albino version of Chewbacca, they run into a lone warrior named Kor. Kor hasn't been very noble in his past and decides to turn a leaf and help the boy with his quest. The group continue on a long and devastating journey full of dangerous encounters on their way to the ultimate showdown with the evil wizard.

     Director H├ęctor Olivera creates one of the cheesiest sword and sorcery adventures to ever come out of the '80s. Look for Bo Svenson (Inglorious Bastards, Thunder, Deadly Impact) as the mighty Kor and Thom Christopher (Hawk from Buck Rogers in the 25th Century) as the evil wizard, along with an early score by Christopher Young.







WIZARDS OF THE LOST KINGDOM II (1989)

   
  Three fantastic kingdoms have been enslaved by evil tyrants and become the stomping grounds for giant man-rats, battling gladiators and tentacled monsters. It is all up to a young boy wizard, the Chosen One, who is charged with the perilous task of vanquishing the powers of darkness and freeing the kingdoms.

      A bumbling old wizard helps guide boy as they search to find a hero in each of the kingdoms to represent their land. In order to restore peace, the gathered heroes must come together and fights alongside the young boy who is starting to become a powerful wizard in his own right.


     The first film in this series seems like Citizen Cane in comparison, but there is an under-current of comedy attached to each and every scene that can make for more than a few laughs depending how drunk you are. Look for David Carradine (Kill Bill, Kung Fu) and Sig Haig (Hoouse of 1000 Corpses, The Aftermath) who both must have really needed some cash.

TOUGHER THAN LEATHER (DVD) RUN DMC star in Rick Rubin's revenge flick

We have something very different this week.  This is one that I've been wanting to see since it was released back in the day in the theater and I never saw it available on video anywhere afterwards.  To me it seemed liked it vanished right after it came out - almost like someone is trying to forget it was ever made. But this is it!  A kind of New York style spaghetti western directed by the mighty Rick Rubin and starring the legendary RUN DMC at their height of success.  If you are a fan of the music and the people involved, you will not be disappointed......




TOUGHER THAN LEATHER (1988)

     Trouble is just a beat away when RUN DMC are signed by Strut Productions, a small time music booking agency whose real purpose is to launder drug money. The band soon after hires their close friend Runny Ray to help out on tour, but he stumbles upon some shady business and is callously murdered.

     With their friend's death covered up as a crack deal gone wrong and the case closed, the devastated musicians vow to clear his name. They take the law into their own hands and hit the streets to find and punish the people responsible for the murder, encountering racist bikers, blonde bimbos, and The Beastie Boys along the way.

     Legendary music produced Rick Rubin co-writes, co-produces, co-stars, and directs this tight action revenge thriller and even gets his father Mickey to star as the mafia kingpin. Live footage of historic hip-hop proportions are throughout the film including RUN DMC, Slick Rick and The Beastie Boys performing "Scenario", a missing track from "License to Ill".

TOUGHER THAN LEATHER is available immediately and can be found in the Director' Lost Gems section of the website.  If it is still listed as COMING SOON, please email us at revok@revok.com with your request and we can send you a customized invoice so you can easily pay by PayPal or credit card.

MOONTRAP (DVD) robotic alien creature feature with Chekov and Bruce Campbell

This week we have a pretty cool sci-fi flick that really does a great job on a smaller budget.  The aliens are pretty interesting where they make themselves bigger by using both spare mechanical parts as well as flesh parts from its victims, creating truly unique creature designs.  Throw in Chekov from Star trek and Ash from Evil Dead, you can't really go wrong........






MOONTRAP (1989)


     NASA astronauts encounter a damaged alien space craft while orbiting the moon and discover inside it a mysterious alloy shell as well as the skeletal remains of humanoid that carbon dates to 14000 years old. The shell hosts a hostile robotic species with an incredible intellect that can use pieces from whatever is lying around to create a body so it can move about.


     After returning to earth, the robotic monster goes on a rampage, laser blasting military personnel and anyone else in its way. When it is finally subdued, the astronauts go back to the moon to see if there's any other signs of life. They find the remains of a once thriving alien civilization that has been reduced to rubble. What they don't realize is that the species which left the humanoids dead so long ago have waited for the right kind of parts needed to juice up their ship and attack Earth.

     Walter Koenig (Star Trek's Mr. Chekov) and Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead) star in this very entertaining sci-fi B-movie. Wacky, gory, and strangely humorous, it is also has impressive recreations of various equipment associated with NASA which is a testament to what you can do with ingenuity and creativity on a tight budget.

MOONTRAP is available immediately and can be found in the Sci-Fi and Adventure section of the website.  If it is still listed as COMING SOON, please email us at revok@revok.com with your request and we can send you a customized invoice so you can easily pay by PayPal or credit card.

2020 TEXAS GLADIATORS (DVD) Joe D'Amato's post-apoc action with crazy cast

Sometimes a film comes along that is so great and such an awesome example of how amazing exploitation films can be that it makes me feel embarrassed that we have not had it in our available in our catalogue earlier for more people to have access to it.  This week we our very pleased to add another title from Joe D'Amato and one that has a cast representing a huge segment of the Italian scene at the time..............




2020 TEXAS GLADIATORS (1984)


     The year is 2020 and the earth is a skeletal wasteland, born from the hell-fire of a nuclear holocaust. A barbaric army of road warriors battle for total domination with their ultimate target being a towering, super-fuel refinery, bristling with enough precious power to enslave the energy depleted planet.

     But out from the atomic wreckage rises three invincible gladiators who are the last champions of civilization. They are unyielding in their moral code and willing to sacrifice their own lives so that the beleaguered many who can't fend for themselves will prevail. When they team up with a tribe of noble Native Americans, they charge on horseback in a rousing attack to challenge the evil regime and end the dark, imperial order.

     Joe D'Amato reunites with crew members from Endgame for this grizzly post-apocalyptic action flick with help from assistant director Michele Soavi (Dellamorte Dellamore). The cast are the all-stars of Italian exploitation including Al Cliver (The Beyond), Harrison Muller Jr. (The Final Executioner), Peter Hooten (The Inglorious Bastards), Sabrina Siani (The Sword of the Barbarians), Gretta Gretta (Demons 2) and Donald O'Brien (Zombie Holocaust) as the over-the-top evil neo-Nazi.
