ON FEBRUARY 7TH, ESCAPE FROM PRISON, FLEE FROM TERRORISTS, AND SOLVE SOME MURDERS WITH UMBRELLA'S NEWEST DVD RELEASES!
February is a bit of a light month for our friends at Umbrella Entertainment, with only a handful of titles of interest for you Vault Dwellers! First up is a new Cambodian action flick called JAILBREAK, which features a special task force that gets trapped within a prison that has just been taken over by the inmates!
On the Ozploitation front, is RUN CHRISSIE RUN!, in which a woman and her mother become the targets of international terrorists! Finally, there's THE CHAMPAGNE MURDERS, featuring Anthony Perkins as a gigolo, who may just be a serial murderer! Please continue reading for more details on these titles, plus a full list of Umbrella's other February releases!
ANNOUNCEMENTS & RELEASE DATE CHANGES:
- Umbrella's highly-anticipated Blu-ray of RAZORBACK is not coming out on February 7th as originally planned. A concrete release date has yet to be decided, but I've got a feeling that an announcement is coming VERY soon.
- Umbrella just announced Volume 3 of their ongoing DRIVE-IN DELIRIUM trailer compilations! From the press release: "Just when you thought that you’d seen every pulse-pounding, blood-drenched, flesh-filled scrap of trailer trash comes this third stupefying serving of mind-numbing, skull-splitting retro movie madness! Bulging with over 6 hours of non-stop sex, violence, vehicle destruction, cockamamie cosmic carnage (not to mention an overload of Bronson badassness) - DRIVE-IN DELIRIUM: THE NEW BATCH is a rip-roaring, off-road, high-def ruckus that proudly programs your Blu-ray player to DETONATE!"
