Deimos Welcomes the Grindhouse!Goon
After the resurgence in grindhouse popularity due to Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino bringing it to the forefront, BCI's horror label Deimos will be releasing some kick ass double feature DVD's. Actually they will be starting a whole line called "Welcome to the Grindhouse".
These double feature DVDs will include two full-length theatrical films, complete with trailers and theater ads. Each will have two themed films that represent the grindhouse staples – Martial Arts, Horror, Sexploitation and Action -- with some of the titles coming from the Crown International Pictures library. Right now they are looking at launching the DVD's on July 3rd for a measley $12.98. Here are the box art and the titles being released:
