Two titles from ‘B’ movie house Troma, Honor Killing and Nightbeast, are hitting Blu-ray in February from MVD Entertainment Group.
Available now is the action adventure Honor Killing. It follows a young woman who is brutally attacked. She seeks the aid of her own flesh and blood, but her Father has other plans for her — a bullet to her head. Now she lives for vengeance. Having survived the attempted “honor killing,” she hires a rugged bounty hunter named Viktor to train her to inflict pain. Thus, she begins her journey to find her Father, and leaves a trail of savage men along the way. The film is written, directed and starring “Mercedes” (Evul Twins, My Night Job) and is the second team up of the actress and actor Jim Schumacher following the film Rose and Viktor: No Mercy.
Coming Feb. 23 is the 1982 horror flick Nightbeast, in which an alien with an appetite for blood and disembowelment is set loose on a small town when its spacecraft crashes. Sheriff Jack Cinder and local militia arrive on scene, and a violent battle ensues, leaving only Jack, his deputy and a wild-eyed redneck as survivors. With a corrupt mayor unwilling to stand up against the Nightbeast’s reign of carnage, it’s up to Jack to evacuate the townsfolk and save the day. Written and directed by Don Dohler (Blood Massacre, The Alien Factor), the film is the first movie credit ever for J.J. Abrams (Star Wars Episodes VII – IX, Star Trek, Super 8, “Lost”) for composing and sound effects.
