Frolic Pictures’ new grindhouse series double feature DVDs Vol.1-10 are now available online wherever DVDs are sold (Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, etc.) Hand-selected by Hollywood exploitation filmmaker Jared Masters. A sordid combination of 80’s slashers, 70’s supernatural horror and juicy 60’s exploitation fare. Each DVD is a one-of-a-kind experience, like going to a drive-in back in the day, except in the comfort of your own home.
Each DVD is approximately three hours of shocking, bizarre, and tantalizing entertainment from a bygone era. Packed with cinematic surprises like short subjects, trailers, vintage TV commercials and intermission cartoons.
Digitally scanned from the original 35mm film prints! Be thrilled and pleasantly surprised with what the Maestro reveals across your screen. Screen in the background at parties, make a double feature night with other cinephile friends, or simply enjoy them alone, as you turn on, tune in and drop out of your semi-important responsibilities.
