CRIMINALLY INSANE / SATAN'S BLACK WEDDING - BLU-RAY

£30.00

In the annals of 1970s regional filmmaking, Nick Millard carved out a niche with his extremely low-budget, yet highly artistic horror and action movies. Presented here are his two seminal works, offered as a double feature, just as they originally screened in drive-ins and grindhouses across America.

Ethel Jankowski has just been released from an asylum where her both violent and suicidal tendencies had kept her under medical supervision. Deemed “cured,” save for her severe weight problem, she moves in with her grandmother who, under doctor’s orders, locks up the household’s food supply to prevent Ethel from continuing to gorge herself. However, Ethel’s raging appetite cannot be contained and, as visitors to the house begin discovering her growing stash of snacks, she has no choice but to violently kill them and hide their remains… A charmingly depraved proto-slasher anchored by a captivating performance from its (literally and figuratively) larger-than-life star, Priscilla Alden (Sodom and Gomorrah: The Last Seven Days), director Nick Millard’s cult favorite, CRIMINALLY INSANE bursts with wild plot twists, regional charm, and plenty of gruesome kills.

Mark Gray is reeling from the horrible news that his sister, Nina, has committed suicide. Searching for answers, he travels to the secluded, forest-surrounded town in which she lived. Unsettled by the frosty, almost ghost-like demeanor of the locals, Mark begins to suspect that there might be something more sinister behind his sister's death, only to discover that the town itself is a coven of vampires. With more than its fair share of bright-red-bloody kills, Nick Millard’s sophomore horror feature, SATAN’S BLACK WEDDING is a tightly constructed and incredibly atmospheric regional vampire thriller skillfully crafted in the Italian gothic tradition, despite its Northern California locales.

Both CRIMINALLY INSANE and SATAN’S BLACK WEDDING have been meticulously restored in 4K from their long-lost 16mm camera reversal elements and are making their worldwide Blu-ray debut from Vinegar Syndrome!
