2 Exploitation Cinema Double Features

Two new double features have been announced under BCI’s “Exploitation Cinema” series. NIghtmare in Wax/Blood of Dracula’s Castle and Horror High/The Lurkers both have a street date of 12/30/08.

With a $14.95 price tag these are very affordable and sought after titles. Blood of Dracula’s Castle is an Al Adamson hoot of a horror movie with an aged John Carradine and could rival Ed Wood’s Plan 9 from Outer Space as one of the worst movies ever made.

I’ve never seen The Lurkers, but since it is a Roberta Findlay film, I am intrigued. Findlay is one of the lesser known and more notoriuous indie grindhouse film makers of the 1970’s and 80’s, often writing, directing, editing, and acting in her films including Snuff, Shriek of the Mutilated, and Invasion of the Blood Farmers.
