Mondo, the collectible art boutique arm of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, is pleased to announce a continued partnership with Intervision to release 1989’s THINGS on VHS. The first Canadian shot-on-Super 8 gore shocker commercially distributed on video, THINGS is the much anticipated follow-up to May’s sold-out run of SLEDGEHAMMER, the inaugural title from Mondo Video, a new VHS-only label created to release rare genre films in a collectible format.
“THINGS is the surreal saga of two friends who visit a remote cabin, only to discover a womb of monstrous horror that demands graphic dismemberment,” according to Intervision’s packaging, “it’s an inexplicable orgy of eye ripping, beer guzzling, boob baring, skull drilling, sandwich making, chain sawing, bad acting and post-sync dubbing.” Mondo Video’s THINGS includes the original poster art, the 1989 VHS releases’ box copy and will be available for purchase only at MondoTees.com on Wednesday, July 13, 2011. The Intervision DVD streets on July 12th (today) and is available for order for Amazon.com.
“THINGS is the quintessential Canadian ‘homemade’ horror film,” says Intervision marketing director Evan Husney, “beneath it’s oozing outsider façade, lies a barrage of low-budget freakiness and transcendent surrealism earning its place in the new Intervision/Mondo Video cult cannon.” Mondo creative director says, “Mondo Video strives to only release things that YOU NEED TO SEE and this low budget Canadian monster movie ranks at the top of that list!”
