Director and producer William Lustig's (Maniac, Maniac Cop) venerable home video distribution imprint Blue Underground has been lovingly restoring and re-releasing dozens upon dozens of iconic and obscure international cult, science fiction, horror and dark fantasy films for almost two decades. Movies like Lucio Fulci's Zombie (recently released by Blue Underground in a delirious 4K transfer), Sergio Corbucci's Django, Jess Franco's Venus In Furs and so many more, have put Blue Underground on the macabre map as one of the most respected and acclaimed labels in genre film history.
Charles Band's equally celebrated Full Moon studio and distributor has long been associated with Lustig, having licensed many of Blue Underground's key cult classics like Maniac, The Prowler, The Cat O' Nine Tails, Deep Red and more for their subscription based Amazon and Full Moon Streaming channels. Today, Full Moon announced the acquisition of yet another pack of potent cult curiosities and horror masterpieces, all of which will begin streaming over the next two months.
