A TEENAGE CRIME SPREE AND A SEXY ADVENTURE IN THE LAND OF YIK YAK AWAIT YOU IN SEVERIN FILMS' TWO NEWEST BLU-RAY RELEASES!
Few labels have kept me on my toes as much as Severin Films has! While Scream Factory, Arrow Video, and Kino have been cranking out a lot of quality stuff, Severin has been comfortably occupying their own niche with a steady stream of exploitation titles from around the world! Speaking of which, Severin Films just dropped two new titles onto Blu-ray disc today: Penelope Spheeris' THE BOYS NEXT DOOR, which features Maxwell Caulfield and Charlie Sheen as rampaging teens, and GWENDOLINE, an adventure film filled to the brim with topless women, including Tawny Kitaen and Zabou Breitman! Both films have been remastered in 4K, and include lots of extras - to get all the details continue onward!
THE BOYS NEXT DOOR (1985)
Synopsis: This is the moment '80s teen movies turned "harrowing" (Unobtanium13.com), "frightening" (FilmFracture.com) and "all too real" (CoolAssCinema.com). Now this "dark, forbidding vision" (Los Angeles Times) from Penelope Spheeris – director of THE DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION Trilogy as well as WAYNE'S WORLD – and screenwriters Glen Morgan & James Wong – creators of FINAL DESTINATION and writers/producers of THE X-FILES – comes to Blu-ray for the first time ever: Maxwell Caulfield and Charlie Sheen star as high-school outcasts who head to Los Angeles for a spree of petty crime, senseless violence and savage murder "that will stick in your head for a long time" (The-Unknown-Movies.com). Patti D'Arbanville (BILITIS) and Christopher McDonald (REQUIEM FOR A DREAM) co-star in this "descent into Hell" (BirthMoviesDeath.com) featuring music by Iggy Pop, Tex & The Horseheads and The Cramps!

Synopsis: In the '70s, he created a daring new world of X-rated cinema with EMMANUELLE and THE STORY OF O.
