WHITE SUPREMACISTS AND DRUG DEALERS BEWARE: VENGEANCE IS ON THE MENU WITH SCORPION RELEASING'S TWO NEWEST TITLES!
While the majority of the movies I watch are filled with hapless humans battling against monsters, mutants, and the forces of darkness, I do maintain a sizeable appreciation for revenge cinema! Watching someone pick themselves up after experiencing some sort of horrific trauma and getting the best of those who wronged them, or just unleashing the skills they learned in the military (or from a kung fu master) upon waves of goons and henchmen can be so utterly satisfying! And thankfully Scorpion Releasing is here to scratch that very itch with two new Blu-ray offerings: OMEGA SYNDROME and STAND ALONE! If you enjoy the sweet cinematic flavor of private justice, then continue reading to learn about this pair of new releases Vault Dwellers!
