MVD Rewind Collection Brings Us Killer Bigfeet and Classic Van Dammage in mid-June!


Truth be told, I've never seen ABOMINABLE before, but it looks like it's a lot of fun! LIONHEART on the other hand I have seen an unhealthy number of times, as it's probably  my third favorite JCVD flick after BLOODSPORT and KICKBOXER. Now both films have been released in glorious high-definition with loads of cool features! If you're a fan of killer Sasquatches and illegal underground fighting rings, you'll want to pick up both of these fantastic Blu-ray/DVD combo sets!


Synopsis: It has been sighted 42,000 times in 68 countries, a vicious creature of myth and legend called Sasquatch, Yeti, and perhaps most infamously, Bigfoot. It's been hunted for years, but what happens when it decides to hunt us?

After recovering from a horrific accident, paraplegic Preston Rogers (Matt McCoy) moves back into the remote cabin where he and his now-deceased wife once lived. When his new neighbor Karen, is attacked by a gigantic creature, Rogers contacts the local authorities. But after the police and those around him dismiss Rogers as a delusional widower, he sets out to stop the abominable creature himself.

Featuring an all-star cast that includes Matt McCoy (L.A. CONFIDENTIAL, HBO's Silicon Valley) Jeffrey Combs (RE-ANIMATOR, THE FRIGHTENERS), Paul Gleason (THE BREAKFAST CLUB, DIE HARD), Rex Linn (DJANGO UNCHAINED, A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST), Haley Joel (TONY N' TINA'S WEDDING), Phil Morris (Seinfeld, BLACK DYNAMITE), Dee Wallace (E.T., CUJO), Tiffany Shepis (TALES OF HALLOWEEN, VICTOR CROWLEY) and Lance Henriksen (ALIENS, HARD TARGET) in this wild and gruesome throwback horror shocker that Fangoria called ''The best serious fright film ever made about Bigfoot!''

Synopsis: Jean-Claude Van Damme (BLACK EAGLE, HARD TARGET) stars as a soldier drawn into the world of modern-day gladiators fighting for the amusement of the rich in this fast moving action thriller co-written by Van Damme himself!

Upon receiving news that his brother in Los Angeles is seriously injured, Lyon Gaultier (Van Damme) deserts the French Foreign Legion from a remote outpost in North Africa. Fleeing from two of the Legion's security force who have orders to bring him back at any cost, Lyon reluctantly turns to the illegal, bare-knuckles underground fighting circuit to raise the money he needs to help his brother's family.

From legendary action director Sheldon Lettich (DOUBLE IMPACT, BLOODSPORT), this riveting action adventure also stars Harrison Page (BAD ASS), Brian Thompson (THE TERMINATOR), Ashley Johnson (THE HELP) and a cameo appearance by Jeff Speakman (THE PERFECT WEAPON) and combines the raw power and charisma of Van Damme with the exciting world of no-holds-barred street fighting.
