Welcome to a distant world of exciting battles, mystical secrets and evil wizards in The Warrior And The Sorceress. Kain (David Carradine) is the last survivor of a mighty warrior tribe. Once an exalted warrior-priest, Kain now wanders the planet Vra as a mercenary sword-for-hire. In the small village of Yam-A-Tar, he finds two vicious clans struggling for power and becomes embroiled in the treachery and battles, the mighty wizardry and rampant debauchery.

On the eve of her wedding, Amathea (Lana Clarkson) sees her world dissolve: her groom imprisoned, her village razed, and her friends attacked and slaughtered. Becoming the Barbarian Queen, she vows revenge and retribution. Along with her female warriors, she entices and then destroys her adversaries. Barbarian Queen also stars Katt Shea (Psycho III) and Dawn Dunlap (Forbidden World).

Hungry for thrills and high camp this Halloween? SCTV regulars Eugene Levy and Andrea Martin star in the Canadian horror spoof Cannibal Girls as a couple on a romantic holiday who settle into a quaint little bed-and-breakfast run by a trio of flesh-eating ladies who fancy them for tomorrow’s menu. Pull up a seat at the table for this delightful feast when this cult horror classic Cannibal Girls, directed by Ivan Reitman, finally makes its way on DVD in the United States for the first time October 26, 2010 from Shout! Factory.

Packed with all-new bonus content featuring, original promotional materials, alternate audio track featuring the cult-famous “warning bell” and all-new interviews with Ivan Reitman, Eugene Levy, and Daniel Goldberg, this DVD further boasts the widescreen presentation of the movie, mastered from the newly restored original film elements. Cannibal Girls DVD is priced to own at $22.97 SRP.

Theatrically released in 1973, Cannibal Girls quickly acquired a reputation as the B-movie concoction of the 1970s. Canadian audiences had never before experienced such a rich blend of camp, gore and comedy. On top of the film’s overt B-movie presentation, the producers tore a page from the William Castle book of exploitation, introducing to the theatre-going public the “warning bell” experience: just prior to a scene of particular malice and gore, viewers would be warned by the sound of a bell, at which point they could shut their eyes.

The movie was made on a low budget — $12,000 the duo had to beg and borrow from friends, relatives and some dubious sources — and most of the dialogue was improvised. Despite cost overruns and reshoots, Reitman persuaded American International Pictures (AIP) to distribute the film and it was released in the U.S. in April of 1973 and in Canada that June.

This trashy black comedy, and at-times, surreal film was the first leg in the entertainment industry journey of its director and stars. Ivan Reitman, of course, went on to direct Meat Balls, Stripes, Ghostbusters and Six Days, Seven Nights. Eugene Levy and Andrea Martin went on to fame as SCTV regulars, with Levy going on to star in the American Pie franchise and a host of other films and Martin starring in a variety of TV series and one-woman shows.
