GirlFriends DVD, Lesbian Horror In Stock at www.TheGrindHouse.Net

Yes we have limited stock of the indie lesbian horror film GirlFriends in stock now at

First time on DVD! Out of print for over a decade -- a cult classic from the director of TOWNIES and the creators of the KILLER NERD films! "Despite its low, low budget, this kinky tale of a pair of likable lesbian serial killers is an inventive combination of HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER and PINK FLAMINGOS. Pearle and her butch lover Wanda make a modest living picking up a variety of men and, right before the seduction, blowing their heads off and making off with their wallets. An ironic thriller loaded with shockingly graphic splatter effects, sly humor and a surprise ending. Lesbian empowerment has never been so unnerving for the males in the audience!"

H.G. Lewis Classic Wizard of Gore on DVD in Stock at www.TheGrindHouse.Net

We have the H.G. Lewis classic Wizard of Gore on DVD in stock at Get it today for only $12.95.

Is it magic? Or wholesale slaughter? Montag the Magnificent (Ray Sager), The Wizard of Gore, is a seedy small time magician with a shocking stage act. Hypnotizing pretty young women from the audience to be his obedient volunteers, Montag then proceeds to mutilate them in a series of Grand Guignol illusions. A woman is cut in half with a chainsaw, another is drilled through the stomach with a giant punch press, a metal spike is driven through one gal's head, and two ladies are forced to swallow swords. Trouble is, after the show, the "illusions" become all too horribly real. Blood, guts, and offbeat surrealism in another crackpot classick from "The Wizard of Gore" himself, director Herschell Gordon Lewis.

Rob Bottin, The Most Overlooked Special FX Master in Horror Film History?

It's quite possible that Rob Bottin is the most overlooked and often forgotten special FX master in horror movie history. The hardcore fans out there I'm sure are thinking " Are you kidding me? The guy created the FX for John Carpenter's The Thing!" But the hardcore fan base only makes up a small percentage of special FX admirers and enthusiasts.

When someone asks who are some Hollywood special FX guys? Most likely you'll hear Tom Savini, Dick Smith, Rick Baker, Stan Winston and KNB FX. But hardly ever does anyone bring up Rob Bottin, who in my opinion has done some of the most stunning special FX work in the history of film. Bottin did live in Rick Baker's garage when he was in his twenties.

Bottin created all the special FX for John Carpenter's The Thing, the three boobs in Total Recall, the werewolfs for The Howling and a ton more.

Selected Filmography

  • Piranha 1978

  • The Fog 1980

  • The Howling 1981

  • The Thing 1982

  • Legend 1985

  • Robocop 1987

  • Total Recall 1990

  • Se7en 1995

  • Fight Club 1999

  • Charlie's Angels 2000

Keith Lowell Jensen's New Stand-Up Comedy CD Kickstarter!

Yes, we here at Apprehensive Films have a bias when it comes to asking you to help fund Keith Lowell Jensen's new Kickstarter campaign for his upcoming CD/DVD release, Cats Made Out of Rabbits, because we'll be distributing it and we helped produce it. But beyond that, it really is an extremely hilarious new product. See clips and hear Keith rant about how the project came together: If you like what you see, donate some money. It's basically a pre-order, so you can't lose!

SWEDISH SENSATIONSFILMS Book Now For Sale at TheGrindHouse.Net, Christina Lindberg

Yes fans of Swedish exploitation (Christina Lindberg Anyone?) cinema can now rejoice! We have SWEDISH SENSATIONSFILMS the book for sale at and it's just $20.00.

320 page trade paperback, plus 8 pages of sensational color. Features over 200 reviews of strange and sexy Swedish films Full-color insert features rare vintage film posters and lobby cardsOriginal cover artwork by Wes Benscoter (Black Sabbath, Slayer, Thriller).

Sweden’s prominent and secure film legacy is associated internationally with Ingmar Bergman’s successful and high-quality works. However, even the greatest Swedish director could not resist another breed of Swedish film—notorious for laissez-faire nudity, relaxed sexuality, drugs, and shocking violence—the sensationsfilm.

In 1911, Sweden enacted the world’s first government board of film censors, provoking a century-long war against filmmakers that outlived two World Wars, communism, and the sexual revolution. In 2011, the censors finally surrendered—and SWEDISH SENSATIONSFILMS declares victory with a fiery retrospective of over 200 often banned and cut films produced during the golden age of Swedish sin. PLUS: First-hand accounts by starlet Christina Lindberg (Thriller: En Grym Film, Maid in Sweden); scores of rare exhibition posters and images, a glossary of curious Swedish customs; and an uninhibited cast of thousands, including: Stellan Skarsgård, Pernilla August, Lee Hazlewood, Dennis Hopper, Max von Sydow, David Carradine, Heinz Hopf, Harry Reems, Noomi Rapace, Marie Forså, Troy Donahue, Zinny Zan, and Ludde the dog.

Produced in the backyard of the Swedish film industry, these sexually daring films form a canon of countless sensational movies dealing with shocking or taboo subjects—street punks, sadistic mobsters, space aliens, unruly housewives, ruthless drug pushers, bloodthirsty ninjas, teen temptresses, lingonberry cowboys, bearded perverts, and drunken vikings—all simply too strange to ignore.

Once again, Swedish Death Metal author Daniel Ekeroth delves into the arcane culture and contradictions of his homeland, returning with the first comprehensive overview of Swedish Sensationsfilms—the Scandinavian scourge of the world’s exploitation cinema.

So go get it now at
