Blood Farmers + Silent Night Bloody Night Out Now From Code Red


This dreadful, but oddly engaging horror Black comedy film from director Ed Adlum (SHRIEK OF THE MUTILATED) and co-writer Ed Kelleher deals with a cult of modern-day Druids on a farm in upstate New York. In order to keep their catatonic queen alive in her glass coffin, the cultists drain the blood from passersby with the aid of some cheap plastic tubing. The leader of the cult is a flamboyantly effeminate priest whose hilariously silly explanations of his beliefs provide most of the film's minimal entertainment value. Outlandish Paul Craig Jennings as Creaton lights up the insane film in this campy cult favorite. Co-produced by Jack Bravman (SNUFF, ZOMBIE NIGHTMARE)

The secrets of a small New England town are violently exposed on Christmas Eve in this proto-slasher shocker. The owner of the long-abandoned Butler estate is desperate to sell, and dispatches his lawyer from New York to negotiate its purchase by the town council. Meanwhile, an inmate from a nearby insane asylum breaks loose and makes his way to the old mansion to take bloody revenge for a crime kept hidden for 35 years. The maniac makes mysterious phone calls to various prominent citizens, telling them that "Marianne" has returned, and lures each to the Butler house to meet their doom. The mayor's daughter, Diane, receives a visit from a man who claims to be Jeremy Butler, the mansion's owner, in town to investigate his lawyer's disappearance. Together they attempt to unravel the sinister mystery of the Butler house, which turns out to be a harrowing tale of incest, insanity and mass murder. Hollywood star Patrick O'Neal (CASTLE KEEP, KREMLIN LETTER), Cult favorites Mary Woronov (EATING RAOUL), John Carradine (GRAPES OF WRATH), Asrid Heeren (CASTLE KEEP). Written by Jeffrey Konvitz (THE SENTINEL) Directed by Theodore Gershuny

Rated R/ 1.85.1 (16x9) / 85min

Get it now from Code Red. Also, while I'm talking Code Red I wanted to mention that it appears the absolutely terrific Retribution is currently back in stock. I recommend that one to everyone out there, in my opinion it's up there with Sole Survivor and Messiah of Evil as one of the very best films Code Red has released.
