This is a bit off-key in terms of what we normally write about on this site, but given our mass amounts of love for Severin Films and bizarre genre cinema, we'll let this one slide!
Hot off successful releases of sleazy exploitation classics, Severin Films is celebrating the Christmas holiday the only way that makes sense - by launching a new line of otherworldly children’s films! The inaugural Severin Kids title is the ‘80s Canadian kid-flick that scarred a generation, The Peanut Butter Solution, in a lovingly restored presentation packed with brand-new special features and on Blu-ray for the first time ever in North America!
If you were a child in the ‘80s, you were likely traumatized for life by repeated viewings of this on cable or VHS. If you’ve never seen it, nothing can prepare you for the damage that awaits your psyche: For their premiere release, Severin Kids presents the Canadian kiddie feature about burning winos, sudden baldness, psychotic teachers, suburban abductions, juvenile sweatshops and the icky concoction that grows long lustrous pubes.
Mathew Mackay, Michael Hogan ("Battlestar Galactica"), and Siluck Saysanasy ("Degrassi High") star in this surreal mind-roaster that Moviejawn.com calls "The real deal…It plays like an Afterschool Special telling kids their hair will fall out, peers will make fun of you, and you will be whisked away to a demented underworld where Celine Dion sings and children beg for their lives."
