The horror film Blade: The Iron Cross is available on DVD and Blu-ray Disc from Full Moon Features and MVD Entertainment Group.
Sick science, punishing puppets, clairvoyant crusaders and a legion of fascist zombies combine in this latest “Puppet Master” film. Dr. Hauser, the Third Reich’s maddest scientist, rises again with murder and mayhem on his mind. As the deranged Nazi doctor’s perverse plot is revealed, psychic journalist Elisa Ivanov (Tania Fox) awakens her own angel of death in Blade and together maiden and marionette get set to hammer the evil Hauser back into hell.
In addition to Fox (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”), the film stars Vincent Cusimano (Betrayed), Bobby Reed (Perry Mason, 2020), Roy Abramsohn (Searching) and Alan Maxson (Godzilla: King of the Monsters).
The film, written by Neal Marshall Stevens (Thirteen Ghosts, Hellraiser: Deader) and featuring a score by Richard Band (Re-Animator), follows Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich from producer Charles Band (Puppet Master, Trancers), who returns to oversee the next chapter in the franchise.
Extras include director’s commentary; Full Moon Features trailers; a behind-the-scenes featurette; and set stills.
From horror and fantasy film studio Full Moon Features comes 1993’s Prehysteria on Blu-ray Disc Oct. 9 for the first time from MVD Entertainment Group.
Founded by producer/director Charles Band in 1989, Full Moon released the film under its fantasy label for children and families, Moonbeam Entertainment. Anticipating the success of Jurassic Park, this VHS-era title follows the misadventures of Jerry Taylor (Austin O’Brien, The Last Action Hero), a 12-year-old, Elvis-loving kid, and his sister Monica (Samantha Mills), whose farmer dad Frank (Brett Cullen, Ghost Rider) accidentally brings home a bundle of rare eggs unearthed in the rainforest by a sinister museum curator. Suddenly, the eggs hatch, unleashing a pack of diminutive dinosaurs.
The film features stop-motion special effects by David Allen (Puppet Master, Laserblast) and a remastered, high-definition transfer taken from the original 35mm camera negative.
