Savage Island (1985)
From the Press Release:
Following a successful preliminary run with fans, Full Moon Features is thrilled to officially announce its new video streaming service, GrindhouseFlix, host to the weirdest, craziest, and most unbelievable grindhouse films from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s – and brand new world premieres – all from the convenience of a computer or mobile device via the Grindhouse App (click here for iTunes and here for GooglePlay).
The first film to make its world premiere on the service is Ooga Booga, a tongue-in-cheek grindhouse exploitation flick in the vein of Django Unchained, starring two-time Golden Globe winning actress Karen Black (House of 1000 Corpses), Golden Globe winning actor Stacy Keach (American History X), curvaceous porn star Siri,
During a recent warehouse cleaning, Band discovered a treasure trove of original, mint-condition VHS boxes. These are not the typical cardboard slipcovers most people think about when they think of VHS boxes (those of us old enough to remember VHS.) These are oversized boxes - some cardboard, some plastic clamshell boxes - that had a brief run in the early 1980s before everyone moved to the cheaper, smaller cardboard sleeves.
Band is now releasing these original cases with authentic VHS reproductions of the movies inside. Rolling out four a month for the next nine months, some of the
Los Angeles, CA, Feb 7, 2013 – Horror legend and home video pioneer Charles Band had been putting off his warehouse cleaning for years. But during a recent overhaul of his extensive collection of collectibles, he unwittingly resurrected a veritable treasure trove of vintage horror limited-edition VHS boxes coveted by horror fans and serious collectors. Starting February 12, fans will be able to purchase these original boxes with authentically duplicated VHS copies inside – at an incredibly reasonable price.
Horror guru Charles Band and Full Moon Features have discovered Wizard Video's treasure trove of these classic boxes, and you can get yours, with its authentically duplicated film, beginning next week.
The videos become available on February 12th, but you can check out the new Wizard Video website now, and by all means "like" Wizard Video on Facebook.

To kick off a new set of videos from Full Moon Entertainment requires only the legacy Charles Band could exist in. Part of the collection includes some of his earlier work from the 70’s, and all the discothèque styling and funky hairdos of the era hardly trademark the Grindhouse tradition. The variety of sensationalism being offered in the first set of DVDs and how they are packaged are what’s appreciated.
The Best of Sex and Violence, Auditions, and Film Gore, are the most promising. These volumes make for an interesting peek into the work that Charles Band was with or knew of at the time. The first title says it all, and the pornography featured is very tame by today’s standards. Some titles in Film Gore include: “Bury Me An Angel,” “The Devil’s Wedding Night,” “Sleeping Beauty,” and “The Boogeyman.” This collection
Full Moon’s “Grind House” series features titles such as: “Savage Island,” “White Slave,” “Best of Sex and Violence,” “Zombiethon”, “Famous T & A”, “Auditions”, “Necropolis”, “Mutant Hunt”, and “Film Gore.” These films, featuring such talents and celebrity commentators such as John Carradine and the Carradine brothers, Elvira, Sybil Danning, Linda Blair and many others, were produced in the late 70s to mid-80s and have been rarely available on video.
The Grindhouse Collection has been assembled from old negatives and lost footage. In many cases, we’ve had to go back to masters that were 30 years old and in some cases VHS transfers. Even back in the 80′s, much of this original source material came from footage that was considered old!
