New Horror Home Video Label REEL GORE launching from the people behind Cult Epics

VIOLENT SHIT THE MOVIE_oring_front (1)

We at Cult Following are pretty big fans of Cult Epics. Nico B. has put out a ton of movies that are just weird and mesmerizing and wouldn’t have a home if they didn’t have a disributor with Nico’s unique eye. I’ve reviewed Behind Convent Walls on Cult Following before, as well as Car Cemetery, and School of the Holy Beast. Kirby has also reviewed Nekromantik‘s recent Blu Ray release from Cult Epics as well and raved about it.

So we were psyched to learn about his latest project, Reel Gore Releasing, which will be focusing on newly produced Italian Euro-horror it seems. We’re excited to check out their first releases, VIOLENT SHIT, MASKS and BLOOD ON MELIES’ MOON which seem to invoke a lot of the stuff we loved in films like DEMONS and DEEP RED. Check out the press release below:


For immediate release. Cult Epics founder Nico B and film producer Steve Aquilina will be launching a new horror label REEL GORE RELEASING as of August 2016, distributed thru CAV (home of CultEpics, Synapse, Grindhouse) in North America. With the recent success of the horror films of Jorg Buttgereit (Nekromantik) and Angst, Nico B teamed up with Steve Aquilina from 8-Films to launch a new label for newly produced gore horror films to premiere on video and digital.

The first three films are VIOLENT SHIT – THE MOVIE (August 2016), a bigger budget revamp of the cult-schlock-gore classics from the 80s, shot in Italy featuring a soundtrack by Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin; followed by MASKS (September 2016), German giallo gore feast from the director Andreas Marschall (Tears of Kali, German Angst), and the return to directing of Luigi Cozzi (Contamination) with BLOOD ON MELIES’ MOON (October 2016) with guest appearances by Dario Argento & Lamberto Bava.
